Bookmark: De-google-ify Internet

What we have here from France, is a campaign to provide free, open source, no spyware, replacements for many Google online services including some services that Google has abandoned.

There is some pretty neat stuff here. There is a replacement for the  late Google Groups (you send an email to the Group and it gets emailed on to every member of the group, same for replies back).  I like this better than those damn chat rooms.  There is cloud storage to replace Google Drive and Dropbox. There is an URL shortener.  Collaborative writing and spreadsheets and and even their own clone of GitHub and much more and it’s all free.

Now here is the catch.  Some seems to be translated into English but most is in French.  I don’t think that is a huge problem with the simpler services.  I mean you don’t need to understand French to figure out a URL shortener.

So if money is tight and every dime counts you don’t have to surrender your privacy to get access to these types of services.  Worth Bookmarking.
