Well, with all my whining about advertising and the evils of microsoft, apple, facebook and google, i decided that i would try out a new years resolution… Which is:
To stop using internet services that support themselves by datamining their users.
To this end, i want to stop all usage of:
Google.com (while logged into anything on the same browser), google+, gmail, facebook, flickr, twitter, etc.
To compensate I will use only email and hosting (including images galleries) that I am paying for, use opensource browsers (currently SRWare Iron), move any “social media” activity to Diaspora.
That’s all that I can think of at the moment… But if anyone has any additional ideas or thoughts… Well, feel free to impart them!
