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.

The multi-device support in Spotify is *so* much better than Apple Music though :(

Heard from multiple musician friends this week that Spotify is trying to squeeze artists even more. Attempting to move to Apple Music.

@pixelfed I thought I saw that you implemented an IG import - but I don鈥檛 see it on pixelfed.social - did it get completed? Or does it have to be switched on by the instance admin or something?

鈥猀doba: imagine Chipotle, just worse in every way.鈥

@switchingsocial have you considered rocketchat or mattermost for slack alternatives - or is there something that disqualified them for you?

@jared for most of these self-hosted services, are you managing the server itself? I've been thinking about how if things shift to self-hosted in general there would be a lot of value in "deploy to heroku" buttons or something similar so people don't have to administrate servers
