Just feeding into a general discussion about GDPR, Privacy and the , I decided to put a general [privacy policy page](ascraeus.org/page/privacy/) over on my own website. Comments are welcome. I genuinely think this is a positive moment for us all.โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1526833446

So "America First" really meant "America Alone"; Alone among all nations in standing outside the Paris Treaty, Alone among NATO in not pledging support for Article 5, Alone in wrecking the JCPOA despite the pleas of uncounted allies. โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1525805344

Another great piece about the [Radicalization Agenda at YouTube](nytimes.com/2018/03/10/opinion), this time from the New York Times. I've said it before, and remain convinced: [we need stringent regulation](ascraeus.org/this-has-all-happ) of the tech companies to have any hope in the future.โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1520861177

Not quite the same as the [complaints I had](ascraeus.org/three-clicks-to-h) earlier in the week, but Motherboard [provides a convincing case](motherboard.vice.com/en_us/art) that YouTube is providing a "safe space" for Nazis, Alt-RIght Scumbags and the like.โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1520634229

Interesting New York Times article about the [wounds inflicted by AR-15 type rifles](nytimes.com/2018/03/04/health/) on human bodies. There is no conceivable reason for these weapons to be in civilian hands, none. Anyone who says otherwise probably belongs in prison.โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1520255871

Very early days, but I've managed to create a basic websub reader for myself. Missing more features than it has, but progress is being made โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1520186732

I've never been a fan of Ireland's GAA, but this is a remarkably decent thing for them to do. They deserve praise for this.โ€ฆ ascraeus.org/micro/1519475754
