Silicon Valley Has an Empathy Vacuum - The New Yorker
Silicon Valley’s biggest failing is not poor marketing of its products, or follow-through on promises, but, rather, the distinct lack of empathy for those whose lives are disturbed by its technological wizardry.

[1604.05363] Comparing Published Scientific Journal Articles to Their Pre-print Versions
Our analysis revealed that the text contents of the scientific papers generally changed very little from their pre-print to final published versions.

When Librarians Are Silenced | by Francine Prose | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
During the question-and-answer session after Ross’s address, a local writer and activist named Jeremy Rothe-Kushel asked about US support for what he called Israel’s “state-sponsored terrorism.” Ross answered, and when Rothe-Kushel followed up with a more aggressive question, Hawkins and one of the other guards approached him and immediately tried to eject him from the building—despite the fact that Rothe-Kushel posed no danger to the speaker or audience members. One of the guards, Brent Parsons, shouted—incorrectly—that Rothe-Kushel was at a private event. Later Parsons added, “This is private property.” It is revealing that a policeman should have imagined, even in a heated moment, that a public library was private property.
