What I learned in 2019

A list of 5 things I liked this week.

1. DuckDuckGo is an internet search engine that puts an emphasis on protecting search privacy. Google trackers lurk on 75% of the top million websites. DuckDuckGo apps block Google’s hidden trackers and return unbiased results. – Medium

2. Minds.com is an open-source network that prides itself on creating a “free and open Internet where privacy is ensured and people are fairly compensated for their efforts online with viral reach and revenue opportunity.” In response to anti-competitive practices and inconsistent de-platforming, they boycott Google, Facebook, and Patreon. – Minds


3. Is Minds the new Facebook? Minds user experience is similar to Facebook and has a large user base. As Edward Snowden said, is Facebook a surveillance network disguised as a social network? – YouTube


4. The Art of Manliness interviewed Cal Newport, Author of Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World. “Liking” and commenting on social media don’t trigger the social parts of our brains. Learn how to curtail bad social media habits and declutter your digital life. – Art of Manliness


5. We completed the first book in the VR Book Club, Augmented Human by Helen Papagiannis. Augmented reality is more than the digital overlayed in the real world. Being augmented is about telling stories through technology to enhance sight, smell, sound, and touch. – Lilyotron
