I hate Facebook and Apple so much. I hate Google. And I can't escape them. I hate them so much for locking me into their platforms and lure me into giving them all my data (and money) forever, with no real way to undo: the damage is done, they won't unlearn everything about me magically.

I hate this feeling. I feel depressed because I can't ungive them my behavioral surplus, or delete my accounts without disconnecting from society and the real world.

Amazing how “being offline most of the day” immediately improved my mood even once I did log on, like breaks are valuable or some shit, weird.

Pity I can make no behavioral observation or change from that info, just a real shame that it cannot be done.

honestly, is the worst mastodon instance
it's so bad that nobody wants to federate with it

Oh shit, @pla got hit by a car..
He was one of the first person I've ever followed on the fedi. His unique mixture of of tech and bicyles will be missed 😭

He died doing what he loved.
Fuck cars.
