Cool cyber punk style artist. I don't think he has a Mastodon page but I have included his Instagram account link.
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 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir_Technologies) and on the board of Facebook.
I do not recommend using Brave.

Had a great weekend at Thotcon! So many cool talks and awesome people to learn from. Got to meet a fellow hackers.town member @drwho and chat for a few minutes which was really cool as well.
Definitely want to come back next year and hang out in Chicago again.
Got a chance to tell a story on #DarknetDiaries with Jack Rhysider.

Thank you, that is all.
Is anyone else mildly shocked at the amount of stuff that Google runs in the background of Chrome?
Having Microsoft build Edge around Chromium and then release a statement saying that they removed everything you see is crazy to me. I stopped using Chrome awhile ago in favor of Firefox, but the fact that Chrome has such a large market share and influences standards to benefit itself is really worrying to me.
This whole EUNOMIA thing is interesting but also I feel that it doesn't matter. Wouldn't an individual instance need to opt-in to this for it to matter?
Did mastodon.social opt-in? Does it impact users who merely connect with mastodon.social users?
This isn't Facebook so each instance has control over it all unless it gets written into the source code. I am assuming that someone would fork it pretty quickly to get rid of that code though.
Am I missing something here?
New cert! Get it while it’s HOT!
