Linklog for December 29, 2019: mostly about Big Tech being bad

My New Years’ Resolutions for 2020 are driven by a desire to become less dependent on Big Tech (Facebook, Amazon, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Twitter) even in cases where it’s not possible for me to sever the relationship completely.

Links for the day: Chronicles of the Witch Queen, Lynxlet, Sweet Potato Curry
