AMA with Peter Snyder
Welcome back to our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit features guests from the Brave/BAT team. The goal of the series is twofold: to give fans of the project an opportunity to interact directly with team members, and to give team members, especially those who operate largely behind the scenes, a chance to share their insights and offer the community a window into their work.
The most recent AMA took place on August 18th with Peter Snyder, Senior Privacy Researcher and Director of Privacy at Brave. During the live AMA event, Peter fielded questions from Redditors on a variety of topics, including his role in developing some of Brave’s top privacy-enhancing features and tools—and how they stack up to comparable offerings from other popular web browsers—as well as privacy upgrades on Brave’s horizon. Peter also discussed other projects in the privacy space whose innovation he admires, such as Tor (a longtime collaborator with Brave), EFF, and CDT. As a fun bonus, he revealed tidbits of personal history, such as his stints as a power-pop and chiptunes bandmate, and how his time spent as a Domino’s delivery driver one bygone summer was the most fun job he’s ever had.
Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Thursday, September 9th, and will feature Brendan Eich (Co-founder & CEO) & Christopher N. (Brave Rewards PM) from Brave, and Noah Perlman (COO), Marshall Beard (Strategy), & Matthew Werner (Product) from Gemini.
