Around the interwebs,
- [fr] Monsieur Phi : Dissertation, l'art des réponses longues et intelligentes aux questions brèves et stupides.

- A flaw-by-flaw guide to Facebook’s new GDPR privacy changes, lulz.

- A reminder from jwz:
"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."
– R. Buckminster Fuller, 1970
- The verge: Ready Player One, a.k.a. the utopian belief that technology would make all voices equal instead of amplifying existing social inequality. Via waxy
