there is a youtube 'walkout' going on this week to protest google's discriminatory content moderation practices

the call is for no one to visit that site from now to the 14th (or just ever, imo) to stand in solidarity with marginalized creators

Protonmail, an end-to-end encrypted, privacy and security conscious email service, is extending its Black Friday premium offer through December 8.

I've been a very satisfied (and nonpremium) user for the past several years. 10:10 would recommend as an alternative to the non-encrypted, surveillance-capitalism alternatives.

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.

Keep up the good work!

Well, the "auto publish" plugin for Wordpress obviously doesn't work correctly. I didn't post a picture of a gym with the comment "Loading, please wait ..." So, here's the correct link:

A new train service in my old home town sparked this blog post. Without naming which town I'm talking about. 😆

I'm having trouble "embracing social media because it's 2019".

Do we really need to embrace social media because it's 2019?

Because it seems to me we're really no better off with them.

Perhaps worse, even.

After some 9 months, I finally made some changes to time of last measurement on the stats page, and a line showing the mean of upload/download/ping values.
