I couldn't write enough posts to cover all the individual trips these last few weeks so here's my quick recap of #allthingsopen, #WCUS, #WCSEA and a few others. https://chriswiegman.com/2019/11/travel-and-wordcamps-and-conferences-oh-my/
Since starting travel on the 12th last month I've seen the skylines of Newark, NJ, New York, NY, Raleigh, NC, Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, Tampa, FL, St Petersberg, FL, Nashville, TN, St Louis, MO, Kansas City, MO, Omaha, NE, San Francisco, CA and Seattle, WA. In the time I was home two nights last week.
I love the opportunity and enjoyed every place I've been but I'm tired. Really looking forward to just being home over the next few weeks.
Here I share a means of understanding exactly why what is going on in Bolivia is a CIA backed coup.
I wouldn't dare not provide sources to provide perspective and support my claims.
Reminder: companies like Facebook and Google are a threat to the Internet and the Web. They want to keep you on their site (with Facebook it's pretty obvious, with Google it's through AMP) so they can keep serving you adverts, which earns them money.
Those companies don't care about open access to information, privacy or consumer choice. Those values aren't profitable. What do you think they'll do when they control the majority of Web traffic?
What could go wrong... :-(
We're heading to the hottest Arctic fall season in 3M years.
Entire basin & Greenland 16°C to 28°C warmer than normal.
@manuelcaeiro They’re not competition. They’re a VC-backed startup concerned with exponential growth that will be bought by Google/Facebook/etc., some day if they’re successful.
We’re a not-for-profit concerned with helping safeguard human rights and democracy and building a web tool for individuals (not startups or corporations) to form the basis of a possible future decentralised web.
Bulgaria is about to legalise genocide against Roma people.

Bulgaria is close to passing a [Neo-Nazi] law called “Roma Integration”.
• It limits how many children Roma can have.
• Roma children will be sent to work camps.
• It will legally formalise the Roma Ghettos into violent Pogroms.
