Privacy-wise it sounds like a reasonable collaboration

Search-wise: Maybe the tee off from a different place than we did, with a bigger team and more money.... GB has been around for a looong time, and the source could have used more love along the way from a bigger team in order to stay timely. it is a very tough challenge with a lot of pitfalls, but I wish them all the best.

Oh this looks awesome 👀 new game coming out in a couple days called, “Tonight We Riot.”

“...a revolutionary crowd brawler set in a dystopia where wealthy capitalists control elections, media, and the lives of working people. Workers are faced with two choices - accept it or fight for something better... you play as a movement of people whose wellbeing determines the success of your revolution.

Forked the source code behind spotmybackup.com due to it having an expired TLS cert. SpotMyBackup is a helpful single-page web app for exporting your Spotify playlists from one account and importing them into another. 🙂

I'm hosting my copy for now at spotmybackup.netlify.app.

So gigablast.com has its own search index which is what PIA’s unique private.sh search engine uses.

Details here: gigablast.com/blog.html#privat

But I’m reminded how @brian’s findx.com was also built on Gigablast 🤔 Wonder if PIA will eventually run into the same experience.
