- F*ck you, Microsoft: Windows 10 automatically spies on your children and sends you a dossier of their activity. How creepy is that?! What is this !@#$%^&* system where spying on your kids is the default opt-out behavior? I'm sure software doing the same thing has existed for ages, but doing it by default kills me. Surveillance, better start young, right? The default settings of invasive Cortana, abusive telemetry, default keylogger, then this?! Windows 10 is a shameful piece of 1984ware. To the cynic: don't say "nothing new"; the scale and in-your-face-ness is new.

- Amanda Palmer - No, I am not crowdfunding this baby (an open letter to a worried fan). Via waxy links.
