Cutting Google out of your life

If you’re concerned with the amount of data Google has on you, this list of alternative browsers, web apps, operating systems, and hardware may help you ween yourself from the company.

On our recent text mode episode, we mentioned learning from other people’s dotfiles. Adam found this awesome-dotfiles repo and included it in the show notes, but I thought I’d log it as well to call more attention to it.

Also, did you like my idea near the end of the show to produce some videos of smart/interesting developers walking us through their dotfiles? Holla back in the comments…

Hacker News tools of the trade

There’s somewhat of a tradition on Hacker News where every few years someone starts a thread about which tools and services startups use and recommend. That tradition has been memorialized and moved to a GitHub repo for posterity and maintenance.

The resulting list of SaaSes and self-hosted solutions is so large that it’s a bit overwhelming at first, but there are undoubtedly some goodies inside for those willing to dig.
