@aphyr Yeah. I have heard of (and seen) more than a few people just bawling some time after getting their shots, as the emotional impact of the past year starts to be thawed out.
@aphyr Now that I’m at a keyboard, to elaborate: I think having a distinction between “this is documented and we publicly commit to it” and “this is use-at-your-own-risk” is fine, but “you literally cannot access this from where you are” never makes me feel comfortable.
@aphyr Coming as I do from Python land, I don't really understand why one would ever make things private.

@aphyr I love how we computer people always develop super-niche non-computer interests. I mean that dead-seriously, I think it's a spiritual good.
Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
@aphyr tbh if it were for me, I'd leave that out entirely, but I've mixed enough drinks to recognize that as taste, not absolute truth!
