andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

Google is now tracking your visitors for advertising purposes even when you’re not using Google Analytics or Google Ads.

I took a closer look at Google’s FLoC initiative and how you can fight back and opt-out as a web user and a web developer

Why does the StackOverflow / StackExchange share button generates URLs that contain *your* user ID? At least they warn about this now, but what is the point? I now realize I've scattered my user ID all over code comments.

There is totally a small community of PocketCHIP enthusiasts on gemini and that is beautiful.
