Brave Browser: Recent Attacks Suggest a Fear It Will Succeed

Disclosure: As a technologist working within the existing ad-tech system I've seen the privacy violations and fraud that occurs. This has led me to being strongly supportive of Brave and the BAT model. I hold crypto, including BAT. As Brave gets closer to challenging the existing ad-tech model (with features like BAT rewards for users who opt-in to ads) it's beginning to attract increased attention from critics and detractors.

Opinions on Equality

opinions on equality: It’s not a case of being shitty about ‘those who feel differently from you’, as if we are hypocritically pitchforking views we disagree with.

Radical Change

radical change: that great pernicious truth - that radical change is impossible - is only true if we believe it. The #FWDORG conference was a powerful and moving reminder of this.
