My rant against the new Facebook plugin on WordPress.org

You’re serious?! You are using Open Source and free software only to hand over all of your data in the blink of an eye to Facebook?!

Somehow people need to understand that the monolith of Facebook needs to be stopped; they are literary in the smallest veins of the internet, surveilling and controlling it’s pulse.

By installing this plugin you are helping Facebook in their aim to become the one-stop-shop for info and content on the internet. And what do you get in return? A few extra ‘likes’?

Please keep the web Open and Free and use Open Source and Libre Software.

DIY identities

The Status Project.

Our identity is constructed as human beings, that can possess one or more natural persons straw men and control one or more artificial persons corporations.

  • Lower class human beings possess one severely reduced natural person and no control of an artificial person.
  • Middle class human beings possess one natural person and perhapscontrol one artificial person.
  • Upper class human beings possess multiple natural persons and control numerous artificial persons with skillful separation and interplay.

The status project is surveying these class systems of human being management and is producing maps of influenceand personal portraits for both comprehension and mobility.The status project is also producing new british natural person identities and running a series of european workshops in which people can build their own natural persons.
