Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

for the amounts of money people are dropping on digital pieces just so they can wave around some e-certificate saying they have the "original", they could literally just keep several artists on full-time pay and get original pieces done for them whenever they want, and not do nearly as much damage to the environment in the process
one of the original ideas in the mac was that one disk would correspond to one work space- if we carried that through to today, you might have a folio of little credit card sized "disks" with interesting artwork, representing the state of your computer's deskop, including its wallpaper and custom icons, for each year. Or you might have one for work and one for "home", pulling in not just data but all your applications and settings.
Another thing about community management, which came up in this very thread: I really wanna re-emphasize the whole "Let people delete their past selves" thing.
Everyone, without exception, says stupid things online. Everyone, with very few exceptions, reflects on the stupid things they said once upon a time, and cringes. The only people who don't are people who don't grow, change, and learn.
I legitimately don't understand why I am being pressured to empathize with the fucking Empire, who are entirely characterized as being faceless fascists whose only identifying characteristics are being "shitty in a funny way" or "shitty in a vindictive way". i really don't care
if your cat often bothers you at your computer and walks all over your keyboard, it's because they're trying to join you and do what you're doing. It's a sign of affection! One way to mitigate disruption without pushing away your cat is by buying your cat their own laptop and plugging it in next to yours. make sure the laptop has wifi, a VPN, and access to the darkweb
