2018 was the year I concluded that any system whose purpose is to measure, capture, and monetize human attention is immoral and inevitably leads to the erosion of the commons and society itself. In 2019 I'm committed to helping dismantle these systems by all possible means.
Concretely this means supporting nonprofit alternatives like mastodon, blocking all ad tracking (sorry, people whose livelihoods have been captured by that industry), and doing whatever most damages the attention industry.

Two years ago I probably couldn't cut a bell pepper. Now, I usually cook twice a day and I'm unbelievably excited for a new dutch oven, hehe. Neat to look at progress, but then again, I guess I'm just becoming a fucking adult. #Cooking
In case you missed it:
The Brave web browser is funded by venture capital and sells advertising space to replace the ads it blocks.
Here's their ad-sales site:
"funded by Founders Fund, Foundation Capital, Propel Venture Partners, Pantera Capital, DCG, Danhua Capital, and Huiyin Blockchain Venture among others."
You might want to consider other options if you still use #Brave.

I dig music, video games, chess, politics, computers, random shit, and sometimes I go outdoors.
