“[W]hat Spotify calls ‘streaming intelligence’ should be understood as surveillance of its users to fuel its own growth and ability to sell mood-and-moment data to brands.”loca
@laura we’ve fallen so far from napster
People might label me a neoluddite or a curmudgeon but I genuinely hate how these companies have taken control of so many things, making money off of our data and lack of privacy and not even giving us ownership of the things they allow us to access.
@UnclearFuture I think those people would be naïve to label you as such. I’m in absolute agreement, it’s why I spend all my working hours trying to make things a bit different.
Thank you for doing so, if I can ever help you make things different please let me know as I'd be happy to do so.
Also, thank you for your very kind words 💚
@alfonsomunozpomer I’ve not looked into it recently, but I suspect they’ll say it’s “anonymised” (which is problematic in itself)
