Just a quick reminder from Slipknot in the age of data harvesting:

"We are gathered here today to get it right… repeat after me
I WILL NOT CELEBRATE MEDIOCRITY- I WILL NOT WORSHIP EMPTY
SHELLS
I WILL NOT LISTEN TO WORTHLESS NOISES
I WILL NOT SUBJECT MYSELF TO SELECTED PREDICTABLE CHOICES
MY TIME-MY ATTENTION-MY QUALITY SHOULD NOT BE BOUGHT AND
SOLD
FOR CONVENIENCE’S SAKE… EVER"

Dark forests like email lists and "Slack groups are more forgiving than Liu’s black domains. They’re off-grid, but they aren’t that off-grid. Today’s black domain equivalents might be things like putting phones in freezers, Mastodon, and crypto cold storage. Not many of us are that hardcore with our digital habits yet. But when it comes to showing our true selves online, many of us are more like black domains than we care to admit."

I wonder how much good work is going unfinished because everyone is too exhausted and depressed from the ongoing global political disasters

One of my blog posts made to the official bitbucket blog. Pretty big deal for me since I've never been "published" before :)

I'm back together with Evernote youguys.

It feels like getting back together with an abusive ex, but BoostNote just didn't cut it. I know Evernote still doesn't have search and replace, but who wants to do that anymore, amirite?

Syncthing only works as long as I'm only working on one device at a time, and its really broken on Android. So I'm back with Dropbox.

But I'll always love you Mastodon. You're nice, don't judge me, and don't sell my soul behind my back. And that Facebook chic really has issues.

Any Google Analytics alternatives available? My requirements:

- Cloud-based and free.
- Just need a no-frills page counter.
- No tracking, no selling data, no stabbing me or my visitors behind our collective backs.

I think it's safe to assume the US and Iran are going to go to war soon.

The NY Times is doing it's part being a hawkish propaganda mouthpiece. Textbook signals after having read Chomsky's "Manufacturing Consent"

Google: Here is somewhat of a premium phone (Pixel 3) for $800

Customers: Go Home, Google, you’re drunk.

Google: Here is a plastic version of the same phone with less features and slower hardware (Pixel 3a) for $400

Customers: it’s the best Take my money!

Google: Tricked ya!

I live in India, and I'll be voting for a new Prime Minister tomorrow.

Our news channels have taken all cues from Fox News, dividing our brains along party lines with false consciousness, and I doubt anyone knows about the issues our candidates represent, if at all.

We're mostly voting on what happened in the past, rather than what we expect from the future, but at least I'll be able to say I exercised by democratic right to pick from one of two choices in some rigged multiple-choice exam.

Scott Adams is scary in the way he manages to tackle complex issues in a funny, but spot-on way.

Finished playing Witcher 3!

This is how you build RPGs, people. Amazing story, perfect character buildup and progression, non-tedious combat and side missions.

My only gripe is that I don't get to interact with the main characters after the main quest is over. I hope they're all okay, now that I adore some of them more than most real-life humans.

Please let me know if there is a crowd-funding campaign for Witcher 4!

@sopanx DDG is my default and favorite search engine.
