Stumbled over this beautiful poem:

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you
and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops
it cares not about
if privacy’s harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed
twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you@lifning@cybre.space

It’d make a great hymn for decentral systems like the Fediverse or the Indieweb.

A week before the lock down we gathered with Elmine's family to celebrate both her parents' birthdays. We met in Baarn, visiting the 18th century Groeneveld estate. Part of their collection was one of the three xylotheques in the Netherlands, all three made in the late 18th century. I never saw one ...

That’s some really amazing books.
