  • Brent Simmons – Corporations Are Not To Be Loved

    by

    In response to Apple’s policies on external purchase for AppStore apps Brent has this to say. But I need to remember, now and again, that Apple is a corporation, and corporations aren’t people, and they can’t love you back. You wouldn’t love GE or Exxon or Comcast — and you shouldn’t love Apple. It’s not an…

  • Platformer Says Goodbye to Substack

    by

    After the recent updates from Platformer about the Substack Nazi problem I wasn’t convinced that they’d leave the platform. In fact Casey says he wasn’t emphatic enough about his distaste for how little Substack did in the face of criticism.

  • That letter saying Substack should leave Nazis alone was started by Substack Founder Hamish Mackenzie

    by

    I thought I was done talking about Substack and Nazis, but nope. It seems the letter that asked Substack to prefer free speech over moderation was started by the Substack founder Hamish Mackenzie. So Mackenzie started the letter, then hides behind it as a reason not to moderate Nazi hate speech. It would seem that…
