In the wake of the huge response to The Social Dilemma, I feel like the time has come to really push forward on Fyre Exyt, a project to create a detailed guide to escaping the datafarms.
I envisioned a page for each datafarm, to describe:
* what data users can export and how
* how to delete your account
* what liberating software / services could be the best replacement for various use cases of the datafarm
It's a big project. Anyone keen to help?
Fyre Exyt is a project I've been envisioning since I quit FB in 2006 (?) to create a detailed guide to escaping the datafarms. Ideally it would take the form of a website or app that would walk users through the process. Anyone keen?
@strypey I'm in the middle of trying to do this.
I'm not feeling the replacements are ready for an average non-technical person (because they're too much work, or because they're not populated by non-technical people).
That said, What kind of help are you after?
