Haven’t done one of these in ages, and the instance is much bigger now. So here is my #introductions post...

I’m Kev and I’m a cyber security guy working in the financial industry for a very large bank. I live in the North West of England in a fairly large town called The Wirral with my fiancé, dog, cat and god knows how many fish.

I’m into walking, motorbikes, tattoos, reading, weight lifting (when time permits), oh yeah, and this thing called #Linux. I’ve also de-googled where possible.

@kev Neat introduction! I'm keen to know in what ways you've de-googled? I've switched to alternative services but have to use it at work (Google Apps), but otherwise have swapped out:

Gmail ➡️ FastMail
Google ➡️ DuckDuckGo
Music ➡️ Spotify
Drive ➡️ Dropbox
Chrome ➡️ Firefox
Maps ➡️ Apple Maps

I still don't have a nice alternative for YouTube and a few others I'm missing..


@hugo @kev for youtube there is hooktube but that's just a mirror afaik
peertube is gaining some traction and there are also things like lbry, which imho sucks but some people like it
