People are slowly but surely realizing that we've been robbed of our rights and individual liberties for so long. Every time we sign up to a new service and lie that we read the Terms & Conditions, or that we agree to the Privacy Policy, we diminish our fundamental human rights.

In the no-code space specifically, we use a lot of not-so-privacy-friendly tools. But we're so excited to build, that we forget about ensuring our users' data is secure, avoiding vendor lock-in, and all these other things because we get so excited to build. And I get it—no one wants to have to read 10-page Privacy Policies and Terms of Service agreements. So if we can get them to be ethical, sensible, and short, there should be no problem knowing that our fundamental human rights aren't being violated.

The goal of CookieSlayers is to 1) demonstrate that ethical products still exist, 2) amplify their ethical message/mission/structure, and 3) support the product/service/company by using it.

Since CookieSlayers is crowdsourced, the barriers to submitting new entries should be low as possible. Therefore, I decided to not require accounts to be created in order to submit new CookieSlayers. Anyone can submit them, but they are vetted to make sure that the products/services really don't contain tracking cookies.

Because of the nature of the project, most of these products and services are open source. Not all of them, but a good chunk of them. However, the directory is not open source exclusive.

What did I learn?

Here I do a product teardown in video:

I share 7 insights into building a digital web app instead of building a prototype. Prototypes are dead. Just make it.

01: Intro to Maker, Hiram and product
02: Product Stack: Softr.io and Airtable.com
02: Demo of dynamic filterable lists in Softr.io
03: How does Softr.io work with airtable
04: Features preview with Softr.io: Login, content pages, dynamic filterable list, modules, native forms and payment
06: How Softr forms work to input automatically to Airtable then back into the front end of the web page
07: When is a perfect time to use automation in Airtable.com base?
08: Prototypes are dead. Just make an actual app.
