Social Media Needs A Travel Mode (Idle Words)
“Companies that have maneuvered billions of people into storing their most personal information on their servers, and worked aggressively to insert themselves into every facet of social and family life, owe it to their users to fight, and fight hard, for their safety.

If you want to put an always-on microphone in my home, then protect me at the border.”

The Apple–FBI Showdown Shouldn’t Have Happened -- Following: How We Live Online
The FBI shouldn’t, though, get to cheat. It shouldn’t be able to get Apple to do its homework for it, especially when there was so little to gain. It needs to smarten up. It needs to do its job.

London Review of Books - When Bitcoin Grows Up
“Blockchains could become merely a new technique to ensure the continuation of banking hegemony in its current form. That would be one of those final plot twists which leaves everybody thinking that although they enjoyed most of the show, the ending was so disappointing they now wish they hadn’t bothered. Or, along with peer-to-peer lending and mobile payments, they could have an impact as great as the new kind of banking introduced in Renaissance Italy. That would be more fun.”

Arq 5 Brings Significant New Features and a Major Licensing Improvement – MacStories
“If you have more than one Mac (say, for example, a desktop and a laptop), it’s easy to set up Arq to backup the laptop to your desktop, and then you can backup the desktop using Arq, Backblaze, CrashPlan, and/or SuperDuper or CarbonCopyCloner. If you are looking for the most reliable and least expensive solution over time, buying a 3-4 TB external drive plus Arq is probably the way to go. You can either backup to another Mac on your network or (new with version 5) backup directly to a NAS or other folder on your Mac.”
