Dunno, just something weird about a company called BlueHealth spearheading a study that seeks to emphasize blue spaces on the heels of those finding results in green spaces. It's neat, but it does make you wonder about it a little.

Reddit might as well just start up it's own first party click farm or just accept money directly to market whoever's business.

Same with universities. They're not going to deny free money, there are just too many people involved in a big institution that will use/want that money.

Dunno why I still come to these big subreddits while knowing i'm just going to be marketed at. I think part of it is because I enjoy reading comments, but even comments and users/bots are being bought.

Reddit is a great aggregator for the types of people and opinions you’ll see when you venture out into the real world and gives you tremendous insight into how and what people think. This is especially useful in the current era where people in the real world are largely still obscuring just what parts of the internet they are engaged with.
