In an era dominated and accelerated by Information Technology, we might struggle with keeping a healthy balance in our lives. Wether you wish to save some money and stress by switching to open-source alternatives or wish to pursue a healthier and more ethical lifestyle when it comes to technology, you’ve certainly come to the right place!

In this article series you may find advice and guides to a better digital life where you are in control. We’ll also discuss issues with megacorporations, proprietary software and social media.

On this page you may find all relevant articles grouped by topics. For organizational reasons, I’ll write down every topic that is yet to come. If a title is unclickable, it simply means that the article doesn’t exist yet.

Please keep in mind that I am not sponsored by any of the recommended services/companies.
