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 #EarthDay I'm bringing you a #soil fact:

In 1 cubic meter of healthy soil live several billion to trillion organisms.

40% of them are bacteria
40% are #algae and #fungi
12% are Lumbricidae (earthworms)

Every year we loose 24 billion tonnes of soil due to degradation.
This happens mainly because of #deforestation, #desertification, unsustainable farming practices and sealing.

We're considering outdoor cameras -- after lots of deliberation and hesitation. We generally don't like security cameras due to privacy and human rights concerns.

Do you have suggestions for wireless camera systems that do not upload or store video or audio to the cloud? We've found two good wired systems from Swann and Lorex that meet all our needs, but wiring them up can be labour-intensive and/or expensive.

Thanks for your help!
