Hello and welcome to this week’s Pulse — the weekly techie/businessy newsletter from @perspectiveix. I’m your host, Ben, and I’m gonna try and keep this week’s intro short.

I wrote a short piece about Brave’s new feature: Brave Together. It’s an unlimited videoconferencing tool for with a particular focus on privacy.

Also, did you know CAPTCHA is an acronym for “completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart?” Now, did you know what exactly you were really doing when you were typing a CAPTCHA?
Every time you typed a distorted pain-in-the-ass captcha, you were contributing to digitising a book! I know! it’s 🤯
Listen to Luis von Ahn explaining creating [re]CAPTCHA & Duolingo. It’s a fantastic story.

Now, let’s get on with today’s Pulse 👇

i’m not gonna summarise the piece since it won’t be fair to it, but definitely recommend it.
