LB: I hadn't known Brave was funded by Peter Thiel, and just settled into using it a couple months ago. 😭 Well, bump that.

Switching off Chrome at least got me to build out my silly Shaarli-based bookmark system to break free of browser syncing. So maybe now I go for Firefox with the usual privacy plugins? I'm not sure I want to fuck around with tor for daily browsing. 😩

Reminder why switching.social does NOT recommend using Brave:

-Brave is a for-profit ad sales and cryptocurrency promotion company, funded by venture capital firms. Its primary purpose is to make money, not protect privacy.

-Top of the list of Brave's VC owners is Founders Fund, which is Peter Thiel's company ( web.archive.org/web/2019083116 )

-Peter Thiel is also the head of Palantir, which makes its money by spying on the general public ( bloomberg.com/features/2018-pa )

@specfic Ooh, thank you! Lithium Reader looks lovely. I'm definitely going to give that a try. And that is a delightfully long list of bookstores, including some I already recognize. This transition might be easier than I thought. πŸ’ƒπŸΎ

oh no. I'm falling down a hole of maybe un-Amazoning my substantial book/audiobook consumption? 😳

switching.social/ethical-alter is my starting place. I don't think I want to buy another physical ereader right now (my Kindle is rather new 😿), but I want a really, really good mobile reading app first, including one that can sync positions, bookmarks, and notes... somewhere (Dropbox, S3, whatever). Icing on the cake would be a Windows app it can sync with. πŸ˜‡ Wish me luck in my hunt.

Plant people, would you help us identify this one? It grows by the roads near the house, where there's also an abundance of spearmint. We think is some kind of hybrid between spearmint and mint, but we haven't found other mint species around. Flowers and leaves don't look like regular mint photos, but it smells and tastes minty. It has a bit of the velvety texture of spearmint but not as much. Anyone knows?
