Help me share my NEXT million words

We live in a digital age. We’d better understand for real how it works. All of us.

As of today, October 23rd, 2021, I have written and shared on this blog more than eight hundred thousand words towards that goal, in almost 1500 posts over fifteen years. Adding the hundreds of italian posts, it’s more than one million one hundred thousand words, in more than two thousand posts. All available at no charge, without any advertisement or tracking.

Why I do this, and why YOU may want me to continue

I do my best to keep this service going, at six posts per week, almost every week since 2019, because everybody’s rights and quality of life depend every year more on how digital technologies are used around us. Giving every brain the fuel, that is motivation, to think and act more on these topics is what the Stop is about:

This is why I write these news, explanations, commentary and proposals, and why I deliberately do it in the shortest and simplest possible format: to popularize all sorts of digital topics that matter, from the points of view that should matter.

You don’t have to agree with anything you find here! Again, what matters is to make everybody think. Here there are no turn-key solutions, absolute truths or stuff that most digital geeks can’t already fine elsewhere, in formats optmized for them.

This is a website geeks can pass to all their friends, families or coworkers, who still struggle to notice certain issues. This is a website with lots of easy, immediately shareable HINTS for pondering crucial issues like “digital” parenting, censorship, e-voting, Internet of Things, 5G, automation, smart cities, surveillance, open hardware, and many more:
