Monopoly. Bingo! Snake or Ladder?

Mailbrew keeps you up-to-date and surfaces the most interesting new content while getting noise under control — and it makes content consumption enjoyable again in the process.
It's a brilliant app from two founders in Italy and they've been shipping improvements constantly since its launch earlier this year. They won me over quickly, and I became an annual subscriber in August.
With Mailbrew you can create a daily digest that keeps you informed across all of your interests, a weekly roundup that has all the latest on a favorite app, a monthly monitoring email, or anything in between. Numerous data sources are supported, including RSS feeds, Twitter users, subreddits, and Product Hunt.
As time goes on the team's real endgame is coming into focus. The last two headline features:
Mailbrew Inbox is a place to receive newsletters instead of your overwhelmed inbox. Links to newly-arrived issues are pinned to the top of your daily digest too, so I'm reading more of my subscriptions than ever and still saving time.
Mailbrew Read Later lets you quickly save links as you browse for a better time. There are plenty of apps in this space already. But the benefit of having one location for all your content instead of another six buckets to manage? Pure relief.
In other words, Mailbrew is quickly becoming the one place you need for managing your digital reading. We reached out to Fabrizio and Francesco to sort out a great deal for readers. If you sign up via our link, you'll get an extended 30 day trial (instead of 14) and a 30% discount on any monthly or annual plan.
It's possible for us to earn a small commission via this link, but this is all about sharing a great deal with subscribers on a tool that we love, use, and pay for ourselves from a founder team we support.
Logic Flow Computing, customization, automation, and productivity
Darling is a translation layer that lets you run macOS software on Linux. In other words, it’s Wine but for macOS apps.
GUI support is in the earliest experimental stages, and I’m not sure what happens when apps depend on deep integration! features like iCloud, but I hope this project is able to make major progress.
When I first experimented with Wine apps using Linux as a teenager, it was an experience of last resort. Proton and other projects have moved that ecosystem ahead by leaps, and Linux gamers today often report better performance running their Windows games under Linux than on Windows itself.
If you could do the same with the great third-party professional and productivity apps on macOS, then the list of rational reasons to use the proprietary operating systems becomes very short.
Taskade launched version 3.0 of its collaborative productivity tool for remote teams this week, which it says includes team calendars, mindmap, and org chart views, native apps, and a heap of other stuff.
Card wants to help you share your contacts and social profiles easily.
Lucidspark is a virtual whiteboard where teams can brainstorm remotely in real-time.
OpenStartup.dev is a curated collection of open startups. These are transparent companies that share their metrics publicly rather than startups with an open source product, but this is useful nonetheless.
Layer helps you manage and automate your Excel workflows, and share data from your spreadsheet files granularly. Just don’t use it to manage your countries Covid response.
limiting companies' ability to run a platform and compete (at least unfairly) with third parties on that platform
preventing companies from giving themselves preferential treatment for other products against third parties on the platforms they run
requiring online marketplaces to be independently run, or setting rules around how they can be run
requiring social networks to build in the capacity for interoperability and data portability — this one feels huge and displays a level of understanding of the technical issues that I didn’t expect to make it into a government report
The companies in question have made a fresh round of statements denying any monopoly power whatsoever. Who’d expect anything else? But it’s a substantive report with a set of proportionate teeth that feels like it came from a less dystopian time.
Unfortunately, political fighting is already fracturing the committee, and who knows whether we'll see a serious look at considered policies or another silly pageant about rooting out anti-conservative bias at Facebook. These matters are serious — unfortunately, our past expectation that existential issues would be treated as a point of bipartisan leadership rather than a political stage show seems quaint. While the tech companies are playing Monopoly, politics has become as insane and inane as Snakes and Ladders.
We'll keep an eye on things and see what eventuates. The report's recommendations now only need to survive 46,000 rounds of bureaucratic attrition and lobbyist warfare, but they've produced a very solid start.
The Illegal Campaign to Eliminate Julian Assange: As the most important press freedom case of our generation unfolds in London, Charles Glass brings the benefit of a decade’s hindsight to this review of the unrelenting campaign to destroy Julian Assange’s life. Had all proper nouns been redacted, the sheer criminality is something we’d quickly assume came from China, Russia, or Iran.
It's good to see efforts being made to allow value creators to capture more of the value they generate in assessable ways. Don't let your warm fuzzies run amok, though. Ahead of monopoly intervention but motivated by the threat thereof, this is the optimal solution for Google, and part of broader efforts by large tech companies to find out how little they can concede at the last minute before those decisions are made for them.
To see the dynamic support more sensible fundamentals — where value creators receive more economic benefit from first-order creation than those who index or distribute it — we still need to put effective restraints on the anticompetitive exercise of market power back in place.
Axios also notes that News Corp has changed its tune on Big Tech, ostensibly in this initiative's wake. Google's approach is underpinned by better, more quantitatively determined fundamentals than News Corp's approach, which was to call out a random ballpark licensing tithe that supposedly accounts for direct and indirect value provision. On the other hand, you don't want characters like these burying the hatchet and getting too chummy.

Di satu Januari, lupakanlah sengketa
Separuh nafas jiwaku... sirna
Di pagi Januari, yang kita harungi bersama
Bahagia selalu dimiliki, bertahun menjalani
Naluri berkata di setiap langkah-langkahmu
Dua langit tlah membaur di suatu cakrawala
Biarlah layar terkembang, menderu ombakmu menabuh pantai
Kuingin menyeberang, melintas pulau dan lautan
Sebelas Januari bertemu karena kita ini manusia
Kau basuh diriku dengan sejuta warna
Membiru lautmu memeluk pasir
Menanti setiap detik, ku hitung waktunya
Tak dapat ku kawal perasaan ini
Maafkan salahku saat-saat itu padamu
Biar diriku saja menjawab semua cinta
Biarkan kujawab semua dusta
Menguning bulanmu mengetuk malam
Mesra jemarimu belai sukmaku
Membias bintangmu menghias hidup
Belahan jiwa yang tertinggal
Kala tatap matamu sapa jiwaku
Januari lekas berganti
Kian hangat dalam ingatan
Sampai disini kisah kita
Kian hangat dalam ingatan
Hari ini tak harus ku sendiri yang menanti saat ini
Separuh nafas jiwaku... berakhir d…
