A very good read, and also, a very hardcore approach about getting out of the digital life.

Indeed: from a great article about Wikipedia at 20:

"Wikipedia shouldn’t really work, but it does. It shouldn’t be able to survive in a hyper-capitalist commercial world, but people keep donating to it. Its model is unique and bizarre – a relic of a more open, idealistic 1990s techno utopianism, but it may still outlast even the biggest corporate tech giants."

"Why I still use RSS...I firmly believe the Internet, and what it stood for, peaked with RSS....Having only the content I want to see only be shown when I want to see it with the freedom to jump between readers as I please, all with no ads? For me, no other service comes close to the flexibility, robustness, and overall ease-of-use that RSS offers."

@lionirdeadman I concur, and use Migadu too.

Regarding PGP, sharing keys is pretty seamless once you set it up. WKD makes sharing keys from your own site/email domain really easy, without relying on any keyserver; since my email is @seirdy.one, PGP programs like GnuPG simply download my public key from https://seirdy.one. When I open a signed/encrypted email for the first time in my mail client (Neomutt), GnuPG automatically fetches keys via WKD, DNS, DANE, and a list of keyservers so I hardly have to lift a finger.

It also helps to expose a public key with IndieWeb microformats2 for better discoverability.

I talk about leaving big tech behind a lot, but don't just take my word for it. Here's my thoughts on a Google employee who points out the dangers of relying on Google for all your data. chriswiegman.com/2021/01/relyi

Stop using "Zoom" as a general term for video conferencing.
