How Bots Seized Control of My Pricing Strategy
" a delightful futuristic absurdity: a computer program, pretending to be human, hawking a book about computers pretending to be human, while other computer programs pretend to have used copies of it. A book that was never actually written, much less printed and read."

1794: A Small Story
"1794 tells the story of one amazing year through the lives of eight men and one woman who all experienced it in life-changing ways.

"Whether they’re entirely conscious of it or not, technodeterminists of various stripes love to invoke The Hunchback of Notre Dame in explaining the impact of emergent media on the world around us. “This will kill that,” moans Hugo’s miserable archdeacon Claude. “The press will kill the church; printing will kill architecture.”"

Is Technology Producing A Decline In Critical Thinking And Analysis?
"Reading for pleasure is the key to developing these skills. Students today have more visual literacy and less print literacy. Many students do not read for pleasure and have not for decades."

When I was younger
Slurps down my delicious bookmarks tagged with a certain thing, such as ‘forgranny’.
Fetches the articles/blog posts in question.
Runs some heuristics on the HTML to drop as much of the advertising/navigation fluff as possible.
Generates a PDF from the HTML (a bit like Tabbloid).
Submits it to Viapost, who print and inject it into the postal system for delivery to Granny.
