What’s Up Wednesday #28 - Illusions of time, How records shape our memory, saving your data when abandoning WhatsApp
Happy Wednesday all of you!
🤦 I am slowly abandoning all Facebook products (and there are many). With WhatsApp’s backslash of popularity (at least in Germany) I am now using Signal for 90% of my chats with friends. The main reason, for me, are the actions & reactions of Facebook regarding how they handle user data. They just don’t care about regulations because even a 1B$ fine is peanuts. They make way more money ignoring the laws.
🧑💻 Being a bit of a collector, I needed a way to store my WhatsApp chats in a nice and readable format. WhatsApp, of course, will not do that for you. That’s why three friends and I worked on . (<- this is a special link allowing you to bypass our payment system which charges 2$ for a pdf. Just click on the „get sample pdf“ button with that link and it will download the full chat)
