My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

@TheGibson That resonates with me right now. Just spent the last few weeks extricating myself from the Google ecosystem, and it's hard. A surprising outgrowth of this was OTHER PEOPLE being annoyed that I've had the audacity to stop using Google products: "How am I supposed to share anything with you?" etc.

I dunno, choose tools that don't enforce arbitrary limits on my choices? :)

@faehnrich @TheGibson Oh totally! And it's SO frustrating! I have friends who won't respond to me unless I use their favorite thing - Failbook Messanger or GChat or whatever. So I've stopped trying to send text messages and just call them now :)

@feoh

I was surprised to run into this when I pulled back from Facebook and Google.

@TheGibson

@feoh
Bullseye. People seem to have forgot how to breathe without Google...

@thegibson

@mkb @feoh @thegibson You can do Open/Libreoffice docs in Nextcloud with the right plugins.

@feoh @mkb @thegibson Looks like that might be it, yeah.

Disclaimer: I've only heard it can be done, I haven't set it up on my own NC yet.

@feoh @mkb @thegibson Unfortunately I won't be testing that one since it requires docker -_-

@wraidd @mkb @TheGibson Doesn't *require* docker AFAIK it's just a convenient way to install. It's just a set of PHP code, right?

@feoh @mkb @thegibson I don't see a way to install it without using Docker but I might not be looking in the right places?

I'm talking specifically about the Collabora server, not nextcloud itself

@wraidd @mkb @TheGibson Why thank you :) My digital (and analog, for that matter :) hearts can use all the blessings they can get!

@wraidd @mkb @TheGibson Or better yet DuckDuckGo :) Also I'm gonna remove poor TheGibson from future replies to this thread because yowza topic drift :)

@mkb @wraidd I know what you mean. It's boring, but what about simply "search" or "web search"? Boring as heck but damn functional :)

@feoh @thegibson It's the same with Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter. If you go to any commercial events both Linkedin and Twitter are an assumed dependency.
