Stephen Dale's curator insight, March 14, 2014 5:23 AM

Do you remember the days before you carried around the world in your pocket?

 

That would have been before Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, submitted his proposal for what became the Web back in March of 1989. The Web turned 25 years old this week and it's hard to imagine an invention or process that has changed our lives as much in recent history, impacting everything from political movements to our love lives.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, March 22, 2014 4:51 PM

For one thing, I hated going to the library. So I am much happier having all the information in books (and more) right at my finger tips, all the time.

WIRED: Vanish from the Internet With This One-Stop Website - justdelete.me

WIRED: Vanish from the Internet With This One-Stop Website - justdelete.me | Tech n Tech | Scoop.it

Even if you’re not Edward Snowden, there are times when excising your social media presence is necessary. Companies usually don’t make it easy, though, often hiding the delete button inside myriad confusing menus and settings. Save some time and bookmark justdelete.me, a new page that collects direct links for killing various accounts dead and puts them all on one, easy-to-use page.

 

Justdelete.me is an excellent resource and evidently quite a bit of work went into it. For instance, for Facebook, the link goes directly to the delete button (no “deactivation” shenanigans here.) But not all accounts are as simple: Sometimes you’ve got to contact customer service, or, like Netflix, they’ll cancel your account but won’t delete your data. Even here justdelete.me excels, linking to the relevant help pages and contact forms.

 

Give Robb Lewis the good Netizen of the month award. Although most competent computer users could eventually find all these various methods to delete online accounts, it’s quite a bit faster (and less frustrating) when they’re all on one page. He even put the source for justdelete.me on Github too — so if he loses interest or the various social media companies change their policies, this killer idea can live on.
