@Wolf480pl It's like nobody learned a damn thing from 2013
@djsumdog oh... yeah, most people probably felt like "oh no, I can't do anything about it, I'm just gonna turn off the TV and cry in a corner", and then forgot.
@Wolf480pl Well a lot of people literally can't do anything. Like I started running my own e-mail server again after that and even wrote this article:
..but a lot of people don't have the skill or knowledge. They just move from one big provider to another, if they do anything at all. And I don't blame them. This stuff is hard.
yeah, I do agree that for most people the news was non-actionable.
I just wish they (especially those who work in IT) remembered it for the future, so that when they have an opportunity to choose, they chose the right thing.
For example, when someone makes a small website, or gets someone to make one for them, they have a choice to use a CDN and some 3rd party JS, or not to use it. Their site would be just fine without it. If they remembered Snowden, they'd know the right choice.
