Some notes on the worst-case scenario - Charlie's Diary
On one level, this is insanely paranoid. On the other hand, the core idea of "limit freedom of movement in face of impending climate disaster while sabotaging climate policy in order to maintain economic dominance" has a certain horrifying believability to it.

Inauguration Attendees Make Significantly Less Money than Women’s March Attendees – SafeGraph – Medium
Bookmarked more because the location data here creeps me the fuck out than because it has interesting things to say about politics as such. I'd like to find out who's selling this stuff and how it's theoretically anonymized.

CAPITAL CITY by Mari Sandoz | Kirkus Reviews
"One guesses the setting of Capital City to be Lincoln, Nebraska; the time is as immediate as this season's latest style wrinkle: the struggle between capital and labor, between the liberals and the reactionaries (Fascistic-American style), is dramatized and high lighted with deep-biting acid pen."

In Defense of Facts
"“John’s a different kind of writer,” an editor explains to Fingal early in the book. Indeed he is. But the word for such a writer isn’t essayist. It’s liar."

Madagascar Plan - Wikipedia
"The Madagascar Plan was a proposal by the Nazi German government to relocate the Jewish population of Europe to the island of Madagascar. Franz Rademacher, head of the Jewish Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the German government, proposed the idea in June 1940, shortly before the Fall of France. The proposal called for the handing over of control of Madagascar, then a French colony, to Germany as part of the French surrender terms."

"Gitless is a version control system built on top of Git. Many people complain that Git is hard to use. We think the problem lies deeper than the user interface, in the concepts underlying Git. Gitless is an experiment to see what happens if you put a simple veneer on an app that changes the underlying concepts."

"We called ourselves the “Docker Pirates” to express our rebellious and anti-establishment attitude. As the establishment was only concerned with Docker on big server we went the opposite direction and asked ourselves how to use container technology on really small devices. We believe that Docker can be even more useful on small devices than on big servers."

I have found a secret tunnel that runs underneath the phone companies and emerges in paradise / Boing Boing
This does sound pretty excellent. And also makes me wonder why we collectively tolerate the rates we're paying for capped service with contracts.
