Telcos, lobbyists & advertisers, beware. The Internet has grown claws. Don't provoke it.
It used to be said that "The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it" - a quote by John Gilmore, in 1993. In my view, the Internet community is now maturing to a state where it is going on the offensive rather than just taking defensive avoidance strategies.  When it is threatened, rather than just looking for ways to mitigate or "route around" potential damage, it is now going after the source of that damage (& its promoters). It is going beyond mere nullification to actually escalating the battle - either codifying methods pre-empting further

A week without the Apple Watch
As I write this its been almost a week since I wore my Apple Watch.  I had
some issues with sensor readings and also wanted to downgrade to watchOS 1
again.  It's been a mixed experience and I wanted to share my thoughts on
the way this week has been without it.

This week has made me realise how used to having it I have become and how
it’s become part of my daily routine.

Looking at my wrist

My first full work day without my watch was an interesting one, I found
myself looking down to check the time on my wrist rather than my phone.
It's a habit that developed quickly once I started to wear a watch again
and obviously missed.  All I can do is laugh to myself when all I see is
skin (then turn around to make sure no one saw me)… 

Aside from checking the time (and date) I've found myself missing
complications. I frequently use the timer one when I'm cooking and resorted
back to the good old kitchen timer this week.  Complications have become
part of my information stream I use t
