There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

Om man endast ser till det låga priset och den bekväma tillgången till "allt" verkar det vara det bästa som har hänt sedan skivat bröd."

"The attention economy is an arbitrary historically specific paradigm rather than the only possible way to organize our transactions given the recent technological progress, but it tends to be perceived that way. Like the inevitable air we breathe."

#Google's lengthy user agreement does specify that any data Google keeps may be provided to police in response to a legal demand. But the process by which a user consents to the data collection isn't always clear.

Using an #Android phone, you are walking with a spy bug installed on your pocket.

Can you guess why they are so cheap on the market? 😉
