I mostly keep to myself but say hi!

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

Can we please CW GoT?

That show has a lot of really awful sexual assault themes, and honestly it's just a fucking lot to see it paraded around the ol' TL. It's also really hard to filter because "got" is a normal, heavy-use verb, and the cast is gigantic, which makes filtering nearly impossible.

I am so god damn grateful it's only 5 more episodes.

So uh, what’s the preferred iOS app for RSS feeds? I used Reeder ages ago but it’s not quite what I’m looking for. Thinking something akin to Newsify if possible?

Finally read through this and holy crap. Well worth a read if you’re even remotely interested in dinosaurs, but even more so the early history of our world.

Microsoft announces it will shut down ebook program and confiscate its customers' libraries. Just another reminder that DRM is hostile towards users.

Missed this yesterday but for the 1st, the LA Times wrote about the NYC food scene in the manner that the NYT writes about food everywhere else, and it’s wonderful. To make it even better, the writer is getting emails from folks who don’t realize it’s satire.
