"This was the beginning of surveillance capitalism, and the end of the Internet as I knew it. Now, it was the creative Web that collapsed, as countless beautiful, difficult, individualistic websites were shuttered. The promise of convenience led people to exchange their personal sites [...] for a Facebook page and a Gmail account."

- Edward Snowden from his book "Permanent Record"

@kahakai @koyu

@koyu there is a really cool platform which tries to bring back the creativity:

@Esther i know about neocities, wish more people had a website

@koyu oh cool! Yeah same, I have one on there but I couldn't be bothered to fix it. Personal sites are ayyyy under used :((
