I took the red pill 💊 and said bye-bye to Big Tech - in this case facebook, twitter, linkedin.

Will only stay on non-Big-Tech-owned communities incl. my own Mastodon instance of course.

What happens when you spice up Western rock ‘n’ roll and funk with East African vibes?

Adtech collects data about people which is fed into algorithms.

Algorithms use the data to feed more “engaging” content to people. This content is often sensational and can drive people down “rabbit holes”.

Rabbit holes are where most irresponsible, fanatical and inflammatory content lurks. It can lead to radicalisation.

Radicalisation leads to nothing but trouble.

I know there are services like donorbox.org to get a quick and easy donation form but I would like to keep the third-party fees to a minimum.

So, is it easily possible through Stripe’s documentation to build a form like the one you have on small-tech.org/fund-us/?

Or is it more technically advanced to implement that?

Oh and @aral, your recommendation for Svelte was really cool. I found a nice complete tutorial about it that explained it well.

I also look forward to the integration into SiteJS.

And if you don’t mind, I have another technical question: On your small-tech.org Fund Us page you have an elegant Stripe-powered donation form.

For my own project (a story production company) I want to integrate a donation form that features one-off donations and recurring ones to support our original stories.

Can I expect an answer from you if I send an email to hello@small-tech.org?

Hi @aral and @laura, it’s super cool that you’re doing weekly livestreams now. I might not be able to tune in live but I watched your second one the other night like eating a piece of chocolate - with pleasure and joy :)

I’m an obvious fan of what you’re doing, and while I can’t help you out with coding skills or donations, I can do my best to spread the word.

And regarding the latter, I have an idea that requires you to only say YES or NO. But it requires more space than a toot.

Hi @aral, for a new website I want to give sitejs.org a real shot.

I want to see how bullet- and fool-proof it is for someone like me who is not a super hardcore tech guy.

I like how marketingexamples.com is made - it’s fast responsive and when you click an article it nicely hovers over the rest of the website.

Would say that achieving this kind of site with Site.js is possible and possible easily?

"Email a Dumpster Fire" answers the 2020 COVID-19 question…

"Can email be a conduit for catharsis? If you could type out an email, press send, and see it being consumed in an actual dumpster fire, would it help reclaim a little bit of what we've lost?"

It’s like VIAGRA for bored readers and dozed-off email lists.
