Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Corey Doctorow

    Pre-podcast-post (will make a separate post on the content of the podcast after I listen):

    Corey Doctorow pains me after witnessing his actions over the past two years. He's waded into online conflicts he did not fully understand and amplified the harm that was being meted out without care of if the target was innocent or guilty.

    I used to idolize Corey but his name now only brings me anxiety and a sense of betrayal. On the altar of gender politics he has been an authoritarian bully that's been blinded by partisanship.

    Modern day Corey reminds me of the timeless Nietzsche quote "He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you."
