Dutch website ditched Google Ads; revenue went up

https://www.wired.com/story/can-killing-cookies-save-journalism/ It certainly does track with my experience, in that I read local news online yet I get targeted ads that have nothing to do with the fact that I live in downtown Portland. Google sure does know when I consider buying something but don'...

When asked about each company on its own, 60 percent of Americans said they either “somewhat” or “strongly” supported breaking up Google, 58 percent said the same of Amazon, 57 percent said the same of Facebook, and 55 percent said the same of Apple.

Re: Artifact 2.0 beta

Still playing this. They've announced changes to the weak heroes, but in the meantime we're just kinda trying to dodge them in draft. For constructed, there's a GU (or UG) aggro list that is pretty popular and effective right now. It needs Kanna and Drow to work. They generally add Tree, Veno, and W...

Universal Rating Scale

Me, I think if you've defined a Universal Rating Scale, you should definitely use it to rate the universe!
