The Internet of Garbage
Here’s an interesting thought from it:
Harassment doesn’t happen because the Internet is “too big”— it happens because it’s too small. Part of this has to do with thoughtless user interface design. When it comes to Twitter, an @-reply feels offensive because it “invades” your online space; it’s a message delivered straight to your face because the Twitter user interface is designed to make @-replies visible.

As Donald Trump and Ted Cruz battle for the Republican nomination, some are still surprised to learn that not all psychopaths are criminals, or at least not all are defined as such. As professional athletes know that if you do it in a bar you get arrested, but if you do it in a stadium you get paid, so government and business alike reward a level of aggressiveness that translates to rape and robbery in one-to-one relations. My two favorite definitions of criminal come from Fritz Perls (an individual who arrogates to himself the privileges of the state) and Howard Scott, the founder of Technocracy (a person with predatory instincts who has not sufficient capital to form a corporation).

When Jefferson Airplane took off, their lead singer was a woman named Signe Toly Anderson. She gave birth after the first album was released and decided that she would rather spend her time being a mommy than a rock & roll star. So the Airplane recruited Grace Slick from a group called the Great Society and found fame & fortune. Signe Toly Anderson died on the same day as Paul Kantner.
