I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (, , individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

(This may be misdirected outrage from today)

:google: 🕵🏽 🇮🇹 The #Italy #privacy authority has banned the use of #GoogleAnalytics "because it transfers users’ data to the #USA, which is a country without an adequate level of #dataProtection." #Google

Okay, new plan... start by laying out federal regulations for militias in the US. Include background checks, waiting periods, etc in the process of vetting members. Require regular training and certifications. Then, follow it up by pushing the legal idea that citizens can bear arms only if they are a part of that well-regulated militia, since that was the whole damn point.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

We have a new record! This letter that just arrived (June 22) was sent on December 13th.

I want a Web where CDNs are unnecessary.

Where different organizations, different website operators, can help each other out by hosting assets for each others' websites, thus spreading the load across many orgs in solidarity, instead of centralizing it in gatekeepers.

I've had this idea for years. The problem always was: how do I trust third party operators with my website's assets?

I believe I might slowly be getting to a point of having a decent answer to that question.

No blockchain required.

@jk I just tried downloading something on Lagrange for the first time. It seems to complete without error, but the download folder (my home directory according to prefs.cfg) has nothing. Am I doing something wrong?

I've been using Lagrange for a few months (thanks!) but I just tried this with the latest version as well and had the same result. Which leads me to wonder if I'm missing something..

shoot... the cross in that background comes from an unsplash image, but i closed the tab forever ago and lost the link.

I replaced the harddrive and battery on my 6 year old travel laptop and it's like new again. I gave it a new name (pluto) and made a nice new minimalist background for it. YAY!
