I want to help preserve and improve people's capacity to communicate freely with each other electronically, and spread it to more people. One way I see to help is by encouraging, supporting and promoting free software, and other free culture movements. That's why I keep trying to make more use of systems and services that are part of those movements, and less of others. That's part of my reason for quitting FaceBook.
What triggered my withdrawal from FaceBook was some research I did after reading an article about how FaceBook was used by an application that could be used by stalkers. I decided that I was undermining other people's safety and security by using FaceBook.
