A Spanish town is seeking world heritage status for the custom of talking to people in person (charlas al fresco) instead of using computers. What a lovely notion.
We grew up going for walks or horse rides with friends after tea most evenings, something still try to do as often as possible.
Sell the content of private conversations to others fudged creepy corp (gates-funded-facebook etc) is certainly not a real, truthful, meaningful nor social place – not software we ever use, recommend or let children use, however there are lots of well managed apps and platforms that don’t sell people’s data (or try to rig elections etc) Imagine if telcos sold or analysed the content of private conversations.
Amongst other things, filtering trolls with a toggle on/off switch (moderate) has been available in lots of software for decades, still taking all the income from others work is not ok gates-funded-facebook/twitter-likes-trolls. Happily people now spend less time using creepy gates-funded-facebook than many other platforms. Stay safe.
Irrelevant but the mere thought of creepy yuks and some stunningly corrupt bureaucrats illegally (listening in) on private conversations (and worse) creeps us out more than most could realise. Um no delusional creepy creeps – no right to that information whatsoever.
Back to happy thoughts.
[20 August 2021 As much as we love some of the contributors, perhaps worth pointing out that purchased by a creepy corp founder in 2018 Time magazine is not something we subscribe to since it’s purchase, it’s unfortunately now the creepy corp mag]

A few too many gut punches caused by bureaucratic ineptitude from all political parties this year.
Peace and love.
