Now, with a little more distance, I think the thing that bugged me about all the overnight "let's move our projects off of GitHub" reactions that occurred after Microsoft purchased the company is the fact that none of those people were shouting "let's move our projects off of GitHub" the day before the announcement. And that suggests that they misidentified what the actual problem is.

What are your feelings on keybase.io? I got it set up some time ago, but I don't think I've had any real use for it... except once it warned me that the Let's Encrypt cert had expired on my domain 😃

Step 1 in preparing for deleting my Facebook account is DONE: updating my personal web page on my own domain: sjoberg.fi/ - it has my contact info *and* now also my _face_. No need for Facebook :-)

I deleted my personal Google account (and Gmail) several years ago. This surprises people when they learn that I still use an Android phone :-)

I use the Fairphone Open OS, and F-droid for apps. No Google account needed :-)

(I still maintain a G account for work, though, but that's strictly used for work - basically accessing Google Docs and the like.)

Just deleted (or "deactivated") my Twitter account. Still building up the nerve to do the same to Facebook...

My 2 year old son woke me up this morning at 7 AM by excitedly explaining something about garbage trucks 2 cm's from my face. It was a good morning :-)

Our 2-year old learned to say "Cthulhu" today. I'm a proud father :-)

All should move to Signal | Telegram loses Supreme Court appeal in Russia, must hand over encryption keys 9to5google.com/2018/03/20/tele via @benlovejoy

I just switched to using Signal only on my phone instead of Telegram. This was mostly up getting friends and relatives to switch as well 🙂 For those like me not using Google services, there's a special version for that: signal.org/android/apk/
