The pinboard fella had a quote that machine learning is "morality laundering". You get to claim your AI is neutral and not racist/etc because ✨algorithms✨

A new site for people who want to protect their #privacy online, but who aren't that into technology:

switching.social/

It only covers sites and apps that most people need and can use.

Let me know what you think, any feedback welcome, positive or negative.

If you like it, please feel free to share the link, spread the word etc.

I've tried to make switching.social as simple and easy to use as possible.

shonalika has entered their first rap into a contest and needs 50 votes to qualify for some silly reason. i know right, but i dont make the rules. anyway you can help by voting (and why not listen to the rap while you're there, it's good 👍)
