Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Today was the second day of my “Hell Week”. Not because my week is so bad, it is after all holidays and time off, no, because I have arrived in the last week of the “Training Journey” at Freeletics.

My first Freeletics week

Facebook’s response

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Facebook has written a response to the movie “The Social Dilemma” where they try to explain what is wrong with the movie. It is a little bit amusing to read through the document.

Delete Twitter?

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Some time ago I decided to unfollow everyone on Twitter and put all accounts I previously followed into a list. This gave me the advantage to read tweets in a chronological order and not rely on what Twitter thinks is interesting to me or see “recommended” tweets.
