not sure if this is appropriately tagged, but i didn't feel like making a new one.
i figured i should probably get some notes down about moving off google.
to start, i'll get a list of the things i was able to easily replace:
- gmail => @tilde.team mail
- google drive => syncthing (with a persistent node running on my personal vps)
i'm still using:
- gplay music/youtube
- google maps (open streetmap isn't good enough to replace it)
- google photos - but this is going to be replaced long-term with syncthing
Everybody! We only have UNTIL TOMORROW to fight the FCC & the repeal of #NetNeutrality! Repealing Net Nutrality would result in an unequal access to online content including research, social/political organizing, and personal media. It would also allow powerhouse companies providing internet to charge more for regular quality internet, and charge certain users more than others. HERE'S A WAY TO ACT - takes less than a minute.
- Go to gofccyourself.com (the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)
- Click on the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom)
- Click on "express"
- Be sure to hit "ENTER" after you put in your name & info so it registers.
- In the comment section write, "I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs."
- Click to submit, done. - Make sure you hit submit at the end!
Copy and paste this into your own status update! Seriously, this is simple and so important. Do it.
