I currently have 315 electronic documents in my collection, including books, reports, papers, etc. I want to read them all. Unfortunately I keep buying new books faster than I read them... So today I'm starting a personal no spend challenge (for books only) until I finish processing at least 90% of my collection. Wish me luck! 😀

As an aspiring #minimalist, I find it difficult to reconcile my desire to own less #stuff with my my #moral objections to #DRM. I don’t want to own shelves full of CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, etc. yet I want the #convenience of consuming #media in #digital and #streaming formats on any device without the risk of #Amazon, #Apple, etc. or the #copyright owners deciding one day to remove access to content I’ve “purchased” in their #ecosystems. I hate #clutter, but I also hate #dependence.

I'm thinking about deleting my Reddit account because I don't agree with some important choices made by its developers:
1) I don't like infinite scrolling when looking for old posts;
2) I don't like that Reddit is no longer free software;
Today I deleted several other accounts I don't need anymore:
Voat, Dropbox, Goodreads, Google, LibraryThing, Microsoft, Quora.
A lot of shit, I know... Please don't judge my younger self! 😀
I'll remove many other accounts in the next days.
Sea-Watch captain Carola Rackete is a brave woman. She brought 40 migrant survivors to safety against all adversities.
On the other hand I'm deeply ashamed of the words and actions of Italian interior minister Matteo Salvini, which represents the inhumane and racist part of my country.
