Welcome to Codebrief. It’s a weekly newsletter providing a roundup of tech, privacy and legal news with a point of view, without the bullshit. Its simple goal is to help you understand the week’s news and why it matters – all while providing the occasional lukewarm take. Tech news doesn’t have to be dry and dense, so we’re out to make it enjoyable. Read more about why I started Codebrief here.
