tiny thing to fight surveillance capitalism 

urls often contain tracking information added to the end of them. when you are linking articles, stuff like the "utm_source" and "fbclid" sections allow people to track where you got the link from and how you are spreading it. this allows cops & corps to map out social groups.

while you can remove that stuff by hand, there's a firefox/chrome addon called "neat URL" that comes with an existing blocklist that automatically cleans off a lot of that stuff.

Hi all, just found this instance and thought I'd make a quick .

I'm sadly not a student anymore, graduated a few years back with a masters in bioethics and bachelors in medical anthropology and evolutionary biology. I've got a variety of interests ranging from computer science, medicine, cognitive science, theatre, literature, and linguistics.

Looking forward to interacting with you all!
