I really encourage you all to watch "Be Natural: the untold story of Alice Guy-Blaché". It's the perfect story of a woman, one of the first fiction movie director in the world, who was completely removed from history. The movie describes her career and how she was removed from history and forgotten.

So suddenly there’s a lot of attention around email and it’s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. 🤮

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

Installed uMastonauts app on Ubuntu phone. Looks very nice.

That old BQ Aquaris E4.5 I bought some years ago and never really used? I just managed to update it thanks to UBports: devices.ubuntu-touch.io/
I think I have a Linux phone now to play with.

Cars don’t belong in cities. Especially not in the form of daily traffic jams in streets where people live. Get your ugly, stinking, selfish vehicles out of the neighborhood!
Oh, that itch to drop little stones from our balcony...
A little tick on your roof each day to wake you up from your car addiction.

It never was your watch. All tech gadgets are never yours. Fitbit is a gadget you never really needed in the first place. Google taking over fitbit does not change anything.
Trash your gadgets and stop crying.
Or keep buying and accept being watched.

Web navigating 2020. Turning off JS to bypass paywall is something I do regularly, but also turning on JS is often necessary just to read a news site with text-only content and proud not to have a paywall.
Oh, dear young web devs and designers, what are you building down there!

"Quantum n’est pas une exposition didactique sur la physique quantique, mais elle rassemble dix œuvres multimedia réalisées par des artistes internationaux après leur résidence. Elles abordent l’impact des nouvelles technologies sur la société et interrogent la relation de l’humain à l’univers."

Voici l'interview de notre directeur Yves Bernard sur RTBF.

All browsers should have a JS on/off switch next to the address bar, not somewhere hidden deep in the security settings.
Now I keep a preferences tab open to switch between 'standard' and safest in Tor.

Tor browser is now my default browser, for a while. Now trying to understand VPN vs TOR. Reading this: blokt.com/guides/tor-vs-vpn

A news site where you can read the full articles when JS is turned off. I wonder if the management knows? They probably don’t care about people turning off JS. But it makes their paywall a bit ridiculous.

The keyboard of the Tuxedo InfinityBook is something I don't get used to. I have to use too much pressure compared to my old Mac (that I am still using). It's annoying.
Mouse pad is even worse. But there is no better mouse pad than the one on a Mac, I knew that.

Totally missed the fact that the silly Good Point Pdcast is back: soundcloud.com/goodpoint
