Noteworthy Information

Tools
Textile

I just discovered textile.io and it seems like their technology can solve a lot of the goals set out by MyData.org

Brave

As a user, access to your web activity and data is sold to the highest bidder. Internet giants grow rich, while publishers go out of business. And the entire system is rife with ad fraud.
