I've started reading 'The Engineer of Human Souls' by Josef Skvorecky. It took me 46 years to find this book, I hope you find it sooner than I did.

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.

Cops open the hood of their car like this to block dash cams. This is a signal to start filming.

It's starting to get very embarrassing to be a UK national. I had nothing to do with this. I once built a go-kart and the wheels fell off. That's on me. But I had nothing to do with the shit-show that is unravelling now. A few tiny egos are running the show, this can only end badly.

The most frustrating thing about Uber etc is that people think they're cheap because they're somehow innovative.

They're not. Uber and similars are just using an age old scam where investors' money is used to dump cheap goods on the market to kill competition. There's nothing new going on here. The apps are just window dressing for a scheme that should be illegal.

Periodic encouragement to ditch your Big Bank. Stop supporting these jerks with your money, and find a credit union instead!

When I came out to my mum she told me she'd already kinda guessed. I think the first clue was probably me dancing around in my bedroom when I was six, with her hairbrush as a microphone, to this track.

Fuck #Article13!

Fuck all corrupt #EU institutions and politicians who got that crap adopted!

Fuck all "artists" who got manipulated into defending it!

#FuckOffGoogle!

Absolute boycott + decentralized/distributed Resistance!

I closed my Reddit account today. Fuck you, Advanced Publications (a privately owned, mass media company).

Wow. Big move by the Speaker of the House as he rules out a third vote on the Prime Minister's measure to push through her Brexit deal. If I were a Brexiter, I'd be pretty pissed off today.
