If you use Chrome, Google can use a network protocol for tracking and ad delivery that can't be seen or blocked by extensions. TL;DR: You really shouldn't use a web browser made by an ad company.

"AdBlock Plus, uBlock Origin, and other extensions cannot block QUIC requests. Recommended best practice is to disable QUIC from the chrome://flags/ URL."

A film everybody should have seen: Revolution OS

"Linux wasnโ€™t so much about being an operating system as it was about putting power in peopleโ€™s hands. This isnโ€™t so true anymore. Most of the few websites that remain are commercial endeavors that often confuse โ€œsoftware freedomโ€ with the mere availability of source code and a free price tag. [..] The ideas behind the free software movement are now in danger of being reduced to merely a business model for managing software in the corporate world. [..] Without community, the free tech movement will disappear โ€” of that, you can be certain."

I wrote up my reasoning here:

@LunaPixie That's the trouble with some series: they don't know when to stop! Twin Peaks was the same, back in the day :)

@LunaPixie Hmm, I finished the ones that were there about 6 months ago - are there newer ones now?

@leo @KevinMarks
Just caught up with the TWiG episode - like Leo I signed up a while ago but didn't start using Mastodon, having missed its good credentials. Well here I am now with my first toot!
