"Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening."

"Full stack companies like Tesla, Warby Parker, BuzzFeed, Nest or Harry’s seek to ensure control by owning all layers."

Responsive - framework for building responsive websites
"Responsive is tiny. The combined output CSS and JavaScript is only 22.9kb minified and gzipped but there is a lot of functionality built into the framework with touch, right-to-left language, and accessibility support. It's designed to be dropped-in, as-is to your website such as you would with Normalize.css."

Democratizing kompromat: the affordances of social media for state-sponsored harassment - Information, Communication & Society
This study examines how a traditional tool of authoritarian social control – harassment of the opposition – has evolved with the need for more subtle harassment in the twenty-first-century transnational activism and social media era. Social media affords cheap and easy opportunities for authoritarian regimes, in this case, Azerbaijan, to subtly harass opposition to a large domestic audience, while eschewing direct attribution of the harassment. In this way, despite the challenges that information and communication technologies present authoritarian regimes, they also provide opportunities to increase control.
