Digital self defense
Today is the day the new EU data protection law came into action.
You might have recognized that you've received numerous emails regarding updates to terms of services.
Today is the best day to begin to close all your accounts because these companies are now forced by law to delete all data they have about you.
I don't know how I will manage a future present without these services but I'm sure I'll find ways that align with my belief in a free (as in freedom) and open world.
I've deleted or am in progress of deletion of the following accounts:
Microsoft and Skype Paypal Amazon Google Ebay (Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter already months ago) .. and many others.
I can tell you that it feels really good to me.
