So we all know how terrible the state of tracking people on the web is. Here's a look into how @facebook@twitter.com tracks users and non-users on Android (if you use iOS, don't get too excited, the same tracking facilities exist on iOS as well, but this research is Android-only.) twitter.com/F_Kaltheuner/statu

Plans for new years day:

* Delete @WhatsApp@twitter.com

* Delete @instagram@twitter.com

* Convert everyone I regularly talk to over to @signalapp@twitter.com and @RiotChat@twitter.com

trying to retrain myself to use mastodon again... I had fallen off using anything but twitter and auto-cross-posting to FB the tweets I originate on twitter. hmm, maybe I can find a way to make that link happen to here

good grief, I have been off of Mastodon for a while now... done playing with for a bit, digging into again now.

I need to make up my mind which shall become my C replacement... learning them both at the same time is too confusing <grin/>

have not been posting on mastodon for a bit, think I'll use this as a place to muse about my journey learning as twitter is way to confining for talking about complexity.

Probably a good day to tell new folks that Mastodon is a crowd-funded project.
