Leaving Google

So I read this AMA and one post really struck a cord with me. After deciding yep I’m leaving I did some searching and found this Youtuber, Hex DSL, where he goes over his services and what he’s been switching from. I found this really useful to compare where I was in terms of what I need to do.

So below is the table of things I use and what I’m changing.
