Yeah. Part of why I retired from Adobe was that they were helping to build the panopticon. My cow- orkers mostly thought I was being unreasonable, but what’s a brother to do? Oh yeah, retire.

Working on getting a PineBook Pro Running OpenBSD as a daily driver, rather than an iPad / iPhone. It’ll probably take me a couple years to figure out a way off iCloud, but what the heck. And it probably won’t help my privacy a bit. Sigh.

It's why I've kept my big mouth to -mostly- minor social topics and been decent to people I want to thwack with more than a clue bat.

Comment policy

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
