Essentially what Facebook and Twitter have proven over the last decade is that it is possible to psychologically manipulate people via the internet on a mass scale, for the purpose of advertising. People can believe themselves free, but really be trapped in an algorithmic timeline or personalized web search which is feeding them biased profit-maximizing information.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to escape from the world which digital advertising created.

Ijust finished uploading all of @pla ‘s photos to this pool so they won’t be lost with his instance. I also grabbed all of his blog posts and attached photos if anyone wants them (will have to send them directly). Photos from his Google profile that aren’t directly linked in any of his blog posts aren’t included.

The Fediverse won’t be the same without @pla ‘s unique combination of positivity, cycling content, and tech savvy. He was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met here and would always have something nice to say.
