@cdevroe Yes, I believe all of that is true and that he’s still a sellout 😉
I don’t begrudge anyone choosing to move over with him. I worry their privacy is at risk, but likely no more so than when I use Google Maps. It just sucks for the hundreds of millions of people for whom Spotify isn’t an option.
He’s made the right call from a business perspective, and as those of us who grew up with punk music would say, he’s now undeniably a sellout. My argument for remaining on the open web comes purely from a standpoint of valuing the greater good over personal profit.
