The internet is clever, but it’s not always smart. It’s personalized, but not personal. It lures you in with a timeline, then fucks with your concept of time. It doesn’t know or care whether you actually had a miscarriage, got married, moved out, or bought the sneakers. It takes those sneakers and…


most card games that say they're good for two people aren't, but this one is

I like the rewindy-aspect of having to pick up a few cards when you get it wrong. My partner and I were both new so it’s possible it’s more monotonous if you’re better at the strategy. …


anti-professionalism by stanley fish

In short, [in the anti-professionalist view] the actor enmeshed in a system is doing things for the wrong reasons, not for the reasons that would recommend themselves to him if he were not thus “constricted,” but for…


The thing that’s novel here, to me, is not that they were pushing engagement at all costs; that was evident from Zuck’s whole…shtick. The key is that they were aware what those costs were, in more detail than anyone could divine from the outside. …


If you began this article with the hope and expectation that you would get to see us spit on our hands, put on our dictionary pants, and tell the people who use supposably that we are very disappointed in them….that’s not going to happen. …

an older dictionary has different kinds of entries

Work has made me speak (write, think) like a new dictionary. I remember when my ratio of experienced language in old books to that experienced in life was so high I spoke like a tiny 19th century weirdo. …


My long-held belief is that furries are about 10 years ahead of the rest of the population in terms of our evolving relationship with the internet. The community has effectively solved most the online issues that plague the rest of us:

The context: a Canadian woman makes up stuff on the internet trying to damage people she thinks have harmed her and to damage family and associates of those people.

benedict evans is importantly wrong about publishers and governance

This is not a ‘publisher’, in the sense that a newspaper or radio station are publishers - or if it is, then we’ve stretched the word ‘publisher’ so far as to become meaningless. A human editor chooses ten stories for the front page of a newspaper, and ten stories for the 9 o’clock news, but there…


a syllabus of tech history to go along with halt and catch fire

This is intensely cool and I am slightly sad I do not have the right kinds of friends to do it with. Well, maybe I do? But I don’t feel like I can ask that much time of people. So many episodes! And reading!! …
