"The value in marvelous pursuits lies in their self-creation which evades both use-value and exchange value... it is very difficult for capitalism to recuperate them precisely because they are so useless."
I don't consider myself an anarchist, but I enjoyed this.
"Their Bionic Eyes Are Now Obsolete and Unsupported." A cautionary tale.
More than 350 blind ppl around the world have Second Sight’s implants in their eyes, after the company files for bankruptcy they find themselves in a world in which the technology that transformed their lives is just another obsolete gadget. One technical hiccup and they lose their artificial vision, possibly forever. The gadget also interferes with MRI scans and is expensive/difficult to remove.

You don't "have something to hide" when you put blinds on your windows or close the door when you're on the toilet, or wear clothes. Privacy isn't about having something to hide, it's not about keeping secrets.

Privacy is the agency you have over your dignity.

I found creating forms to be a straightforward process and intuitive. This #FOSS software that can be #selfhosted or obtained as a service, is a candidate to recommend as ethical alternative to anyone that wants you to use #Google
Remember, and you should mention that too, that #Google Forms is operated by an advertising giant. Why would you send your data to them? Your survey data is shared about. That is crazy.
