So people are seeing some kind of thing on amazon dot com where they can do volunteer proofreading for amazon dot com, and they think that's a reasonable thing to do. To volunteer free proofreading to amazon dot com?

I get that maybe they think they're helping the authors, but even if that were the case, and it were the authors requesting this instead of amazon dot com, "LOL My mother was a proofreader, so it is my mission to undermine professional proofreaders by providing my own amateur proofreading services for free."

There are actual charitable organizations that need volunteers, and instead people are volunteering for amazon dot com.

Facebook blocks and bans users for sharing Guardian article showing Aboriginal men in chains | Facebook | The Guardian

While I stand by my earlier comment that Facebook is almost certainly deliberately messing up to try to persuade people it's impossible to do moderation at scale, I like the conclusion of the above article: reduce the scale by breaking Facebook up.

OK, so if you have any of those godforsaken Amazon devices and yet somehow are not OK with having the wealthiest man on the planet mooch your bandwidth, and you don't trust when Amazon tells you they're not going to snoop on your data, you may want to turn off "Amazon Sidewalk," as it's rolling out enabled by default.

What Is Amazon Sidewalk... And Why Is It On Your Echo Smart Speaker

Or don't, if you want to help grease up that slippery slope.

I had to update the Alexa app to shut it off. If you are running an older version the option to disable Sidewalk isn't even there.

Not sure how this is supposed to "simplify" reconnecting my dots and echoes when they lose connection to my router, one of the supposed "selling points" of letting Sidewalk run. My speakers lose connection fairly regularly but then they reconnect on their own after a minute or two.

Alexa insists she isn't spying on me either, but then she gets really defensive when I confront her her about it.

Echo 4th gen...


Is it a receptacle for Sargon?


Or a Romulan cloaking device?


Both, probably.

I've been unable to activate my Echo on the Airbnb host's network for some reason, so I've had to pick up my phone every time I want to know the outside temperature, hear music, look up the definition of a word, or find out the hours a shop is open. I had forgotten how hard life is for some people.
