This is the first newsletter sent from my self-hosted Ghost installation with absolutely no tracking of clicks and opens. It’s embarassing to admit how long it often takes me to put my money where my mouth is, to actually work in alignment with the responsible innovation I teach.
Sure it can be demanding in time and effort, but to give meaning to my words I need to lead the way and show how it’s possible to reduce dependencies on big tech. And how it’s possible to treat people with more respect by not normalising the abuse of integrity and personal data.
Also, I’m the one who has been making a big deal out of how friction can be a really good thing. And my decisions in recent months are not only helping my wellbeing. My behavior is changing.
