I work with databases. I like 90s music, beer, barcelona, london, anonimity, privacy, simplicity, transition, buddhism

I tend to be on and off the social internet

Thanks for the transparency, but I'm gone. So long and thanks for all the tweets.

So not sleeping after all. Listening to Dreams by the Cranberries :)

I try to not do things compulsively but I regularly fail.

Time to go to bed, let's try again tomorrow

Great TED talk about the internet and specifically social media (or as the speaker calls them, "behavior modification empires").

I have some sort of pain on my right foot. No falls, no twists, no idea why. It's annoying. Doing now a remedy (I hope) which consists of putting the foot in hot water for 10 mins, then 10 mins in cold and start again

I like Pinafore but I wish there was a "Back to top" button

As someone with no FB account, the assumptions of social death often leave me a bit bemused.

I made an early fairly private choice that I didn't like the nature of FB. It wasn't a particularly technical or privacy related choice, but a kind of hunch-y ethical one. Something about the way MZ talked about it alerted me to something.

Absolutely nothing bad has happened to me as a result. I'm socially connected and totally OK.

students loans are completely evil

taking away educational opportunities from most people, and saddling others with a life long debt

an inherently biased and unfair system that affords privilege to those who already are privileged

it makes me so simultaneously outraged and deeply sad

Unsubscribe from a couple of those newsletters you never read.

Life would be much better if people actually read the emails they received before responding

Our work with the City of Ghent on our Indienet project (indienet.info) gets a shout out in this month’s New Scientist, in Jacob Aron’s article titled “Stop being the product.”

“On the face of it, [it] sounds a lot like the old web, where people created simple pages hosted on computers they controlled. The crucial difference is that it used to be difficult to put things online without technical know-how – which is partly why easy-to-use services like Facebook are popular.”
