I heard from several of you over the weekend that are enjoying your new iPhones and Apple Watches. Good on you. I spent the weekend kicking the tires on my new iPhone 15 Pro Max, and I dig it… This is a post for MacSparky Labs Members only. Care to join? Or perhaps do you need to sign in?
We discuss user data and privacy a lot around here. Here is a Kickstarter project that will actually respect user privacy. Instead of collecting and mining your user data to sell you creepily specific targeted ads, Tim Smith is building Bokeh to be a private, secure, and user-funded social network. For instance, when you post your photos, you get to choose who sees them. Bokeh won’t show who follows you or who you follow. You don’t have to worry about friends of friends seeing your photos. If one of these “friends” has requested to follow you three times and you said no, Bokeh will prompt you to block them.
It’s intended to be a user funded project. No creepy ad-crawling. I sincerely hope this works.
