  1. Google is too big. They no longer provide better solutions because they have too many systems to maintain. Can't do inline photos on android gmail. Can't number discontinuous lists on google sites. They are starting to put limits on trash and old accounts. I predict that this is the beginning of their downfall. Google no longer provides the best services and has non existant customer support. They will start to shrink as we move to newer hipper alternatives!

  2. I am so glad I have analogue/physical versions of most stuff. Especially my planner, business documents, and contacts.

    I've moved everything from my Google drive/docs to new backups on my home desktop and am working on getting an external drive to keep at another location for stuff that's really important to me. I hadn't gotten around to downloading the backups to my newer computer and this lit a fire under my butt.

    What REALLY sucked is how many things use Google API and were affected. My alternative forms of communication from Gmail include Discord. Which uses Google API. My online friends and I have now made backup plans for if Google fails again, including sharing our phone numbers or addresses in some cases. These are people I've gamed with for almost 6 years and some of us have even met. Between everyone we can contact everyone else via phone or mail which is pretty cool.

    I am really glad I that I never jumped on the "smart home" trend and am actually fairly independent aside from Gmail, I'm looking into backup options.

  3. Chill out guys. Humans are nothing if not adaptable. It's our greatest strength and greatest weakness. We have more to worry about monopoly power and the coming corporate sovereignty

  4. Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it .”

    “… only those who have the will and the power to shoot down their fellow men, are the real rulers in this, as in all other (so-called) civilized countries; for by no others will civilized men be robbed, or enslaved .”
    ― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority

    "So these villains, who call themselves governments, well understand that their power rests primarily upon stolen money . With money they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money . And, when their authority is denied, the first use they always make of money, is to hire soldiers to kill or subdue all who refuse them more money ."

    -The payment of taxes, being compulsory, of course furnishes no evidence that any one voluntarily supports the Constitution .

    It is true that the theory of our Constitution is, that all taxes are paid voluntarily; that our government is a mutual insurance company, voluntarily entered into by the people with each other; that each man makes a free and purely voluntary contract with all others who are parties to the Constitution, to pay so much money for so much protection, the same as he does with any other insurance company; and that he is just as free not to be protected, and not to pay any tax, as he is to pay a tax, and be protected .

    But this theory of our government is wholly different from the practical fact . The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man: Your money, or your life . And many, if not most, taxes are paid under the compulsion of that threat ;.

    The government does not, indeed, waylay a man in a lonely place, spring upon him from the road side, and, holding a pistol to his head, proceed to rifle his pockets . But the robbery is none the less a robbery on that account; and it is far more dastardly and shameful .

    The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act . He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit . He does not pretend to be anything but a robber . He has not acquired impudence enough to profess to be merely a “protector,” and that he takes men’s money against their will, merely to enable him to “protect” those infatuated travellers, who feel perfectly able to protect themselves, or do not appreciate his peculiar system of protection . He is too sensible a man to make such professions as these . Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you, as you wish him to do . He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful “sovereign,” on account of the “protection” he affords you . He does not keep “protecting” you, by commanding you to bow down and serve him; by requiring you to do this, and forbidding you to do that; by robbing you of more money as often as he finds it for his interest or pleasure to do so; and by branding you as a rebel, a traitor, and an enemy to your country, and shooting you down without mercy, if you dispute his authority, or resist his demands . He is too much of a gentleman to be guilty of such impostures, and insults, and villanies as these . In short, he does not, in addition to robbing you, attempt to make you either his dupe or his slave .

    The proceedings of those robbers and murderers, who call themselves “the government,” are directly the opposite of these of the single highwayman .

    In the first place, they do not, like him, make themselves individually known; or, consequently, take upon themselves personally the responsibility of their acts . On the contrary, they secretly (by secret ballot) designate some one of their number to commit the robbery in their behalf, while they keep themselves practically concealed . They say to the person thus designated:

    Go to A— B—, and say to him that “the government” has need of money to meet the expenses of protecting him and his property . If he presumes to say that he has never contracted with us to protect him, and that he wants none of our protection, say to him that that is our business, and not his; that we choose to protect him, whether he desires us to do so or not; and that we demand pay, too, for protecting him . If he dares to inquire who the individuals are, who have thus taken upon themselves the title of “the government,” and who assume to protect him, and demand payment of him, without his having ever made any contract with them, say to him that that, too, is our business, and not his; that we do not choose to make ourselves individually known to him; that we have secretly (by secret ballot) appointed you our agent to give him notice of our demands, and, if he complies with them, to give him, in our name, a receipt that will protect him against any similar demand for the present year . If he refuses to comply, seize and sell enough of his property to pay not only our demands, but all your own expenses and trouble beside .

    If he resists the seizure of his property, call upon the bystanders to help you (doubtless some of them will prove to be members of our band) . If, in defending his property, he should kill any of our band who are assisting you, capture him at all hazards; charge him (in one of our courts) with murder, convict him, and hang him . If he should call upon his neighbors, or any others who, like him, may be disposed to resist our demands, and they should come in large numbers to his assistance, cry out that they are all rebels and traitors; that “our country” is in danger; call upon the commander of our hired murderers; tell him to quell the rebellion and “save the country,” cost what it may . Tell him to kill all who resist, though they should be hundreds of thousands; and thus strike terror into all others similarly disposed . See that the work of murder is thoroughly done, that we may have no further trouble of this kind hereafter . When these traitors shall have thus been taught our strength and our determination, they will be good loyal citizens for many years, and pay their taxes without a why or a wherefore .

    It is under such compulsion as this that taxes, so called, are paid . And how much proof the payment of taxes affords, that the people consent to support “the government,” it needs no further argument to show .

    Lysander Spooner (1870)

  5. Mindgeek (PrawnHub owner) is the only legitimate potential competitor to youtube at the moment. THey have the bandwidth and servers necessary to create a worldwide CDN for user uploaded videos… especially after the recent culling.

  6. They infiltrated into our lives and we assigned G value based on usabiliy and convenience. I think we're being shown just how much of our power and privacy we turned over to them.
