Jon Udell takes a bit before getting around to his main point, which is that it makes more sense to design services in such a way that they can't know private user information, so they don't need to assume the liability for getting hacked and leaking this data all over the place. It's a good concept and I support it. (The rest of the article is about how Brave now supports Hypothes.is but it's not such a big deal since we now know that Brave is an Electron application, that is, it uses a built-in Chromium browser engine, just like pretty much every browser out there).
