Today marks a big day for me: I bit the bullet and deleted my Facebook account. The option wasn’t that easy to find, but in the end it didn’t hurt at all!
I will miss the social interaction with my friends and acquaintances across the globe there, but I did not agree with the upcoming changes to Facebook’s terms of service and the privacy implications they have.
Congratulations to the Ind.ie team for reaching their goal of raising $100k before December 10th! It’s always nice to see successful crowd funding campaigns that support goals to improve our lives and society.
I’m currently working on setting up Pulse (aka SyncThing) on my own infrastructure, as an alternative to BitTorrent Sync.
I’m also looking forward to Heartbeat, their distributed social network project that is based on Pulse.
I’m confident the money raised will be put into good use!
