Having read Free as in Freedom ¹ and being appalled at the digitalization-driven annihilation of once fought for values paired with de-facto government-mandated acceptance of this new brutal reality, I concluded to no longer be morally capable of supporting the web in its current form and thus began work on my own blogging software in April of 2020.
Now, beginning of September 2020, this project has reached a presentable state; having transferred all 232 jblog posts, reformatting and annotating them as well as improving minor syntactically or grammaticallly uneven sections, I can announce my blog’s movement:
If you choose to visit my blog, I can assure you that no trackers, cookies or malicious scripts will be employed against you. I will not try to collect a lot of data about your visit and the few inherently technically required data points in form of non-aggregated system logs will not be shared with third parties.
This 233rd post is the last to be published on https://jonathanfrech.wordpress.com, which will be shut down on the 31st of December 2020.
If you are interested in my blog, you can use my RSS feed to get a full list of my blog posts, updated as new are written. RSS is not like other subscription models — there is no server which knows your details and eagerly sends traffic your way to coerce you to a click. RSS requires you, the user, to request a feed and only then will transmit said feed.
Note that this blog’s content is subject to a clearly defined set of licenses specifying the terms and conditions with which it can be used.
