BAT Community Weekly Update: 05/31/2019 to 06/06/2019 — Guest AMA with Daniel Gouldman (CEO) and Ian Kane (COO) of Ternio, AMA with Jimmy Secretan (highlights), #BRAVESTATS giveaway winners!

BLOG: Highlights from Jimmy Secretan’s BAT Community AMA

I grew up in and around Orlando, Florida. Some of my earliest memories were of taking household items and using them to try and build interesting machines. And after several early visits to EPCOT, I knew I wanted to spend my life thinking about what the future could be like. See, back then, it wasn’t all just movie tie-ins, it was a bold statement that we should all think about how life could be completely different and much better if we are willing to work to make it happen.

Johnny Ryan @johnnyryan If you are in Washington DC on Friday please join our discussion about data protection, privacy, safe and unsafe data use. https://t.co/5L73qtDJsD Jun 05 2019

A user had questions on Brave referral codes. Sampson explains why Brave uses the method they do:

Sampson @BraveSampson @StaggeredSix @brave We evaluated other approaches, and this yielded the least amount of friction. Otherwise we would need to have a custom build for every single user in the referral system. That, or their users would have to manually associate. Both painful :slightly_smiling_face: Details: https://t.co/q2bQJFzmeF Jun 06 2019

BAT/Brave in the News

While a year old, this was just published on London Web Standards. Check out Dr. Ben Livshits talking about Web 3.0!

Brave is a browser that aims to disrupt online advertising, while simultaneously protecting the privacy of the user. Brave tends to also be quite a bit faster than the competition.

In this talk I will describe some of the novel browser features, such as a cryptocurrency wallet, an ad system, and our push to enable interesting interactions with what some people call Web 3.0.

One Year Into GDPR, Most Apps Still Harvest Data Without Permission

While good-acting companies knock themselves out trying to comply with data protection and privacy laws, and regulators debate the minutiae of cookie consent policies, bad actors simply couldn’t care less.

The front door may be locked, but the basement windows are wide open.

Unauthorized data harvesting from mobile apps has continued nearly unabated in the year since Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation came into force last May.

Department of Justice reportedly preparing Google antitrust investigation

The US Department of Justice is preparing to kick off an antitrust investigation of Google, according to a report late Friday by The Wall Street Journal.

The department is expected to examine Google’s search practices, as well as its other businesses, the report said. Though the Federal Trade Commission investigated Google several years ago, this time it’ll step aside for the DOJ to conduct the inquiry.
