This DuckDuckGo audit by @purism is a sobering read:
Remember that DuckDuckGo is venture capital-funded which means that they must exit—either become a publicly-traded multi-billion-dollar company (sell to the public) or sell to one of the incumbents.
(What we need is a publicly-funded but independently run search engine. The EU could create such a thing… if they didn’t have they heads firmly entrenched up Silicon Valley’s bumhole.)

I always finding myself avoiding certain producers when I'm creating playlists for DJing. Typically any song by Deadmau5, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Wolfgang Gartner, Bassnectar, and other similar caliber people.
I think I do it because it feels a bit like cheating to play a song from a well-known and loved producers. It's probably a terrible practice, do any other dance DJs do this?
Your average tech bro, who’s not that good at tech and not too much of a bro.
