Computer Lib/Dream Machines - Wikipedia
Computer Lib is a 1974 book by Ted Nelson, originally published by Nelson himself, and printed with Dream Machines, another book by Nelson, as a two front cover paperback to indicate its intertwingled nature, and was republished with a foreword by Stewart Brand in 1987 by Microsoft Press. Computer Lib, subtitled "You can and must understand computers NOW," was influenced by Brand's Whole Earth Catalog.

WD Easystore 8TB Compendium : DataHoarder
The Western Digital (WD) Easystore 8TB is an external hard drive sold exclusively by Best Buy. It's sought after by many /r/datahoarder folks because it often (but not always) contains a WD Red 8TB drive which can be "shucked" and used in a home server among other similarly shucked Easystore drives. As it regularly goes on sale it is a very cheap method to pickup large amounts of reliable storage. This post is to serve as a collection of relevant information about the drives.

Is the Ryzen stock cooler good? - Quora
So, the Ryzen stock coolers are pretty decent, and they even allow for some OK overclocking as well, however, I would NOT recommend getting it if you wish to overclock heavily, in that case I’d recommend getting a decent water-cooler or a good air-cooler.

The Facebook Dilemma
The promise of Facebook was to create a more open and connected world. But from the company’s failure to protect millions of users’ data, to the proliferation of “fake news” and disinformation, mounting crises have raised the question: Is Facebook more harmful than helpful? On Monday, Oct. 29, and Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, FRONTLINE presents The Facebook Dilemma. This major, two-night event investigates a series of warnings to Facebook as the company grew from Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard dorm room to a global empire. With dozens of original interviews and rare footage, The Facebook Dilemma examines the powerful social media platform’s impact on privacy and democracy in the U.S. and around the world.

builds - pcmasterrace
The purpose of this page is to disprove the myths about the price of a custom PC and educate people on possible hardware configurations for different budgets and performance requirements. The $500 "The Crusher" is the most popular, as it's the one build on the page that simultaneously outperforms next-gen consoles like the PS4 Pro or XBOX One X with the GPU upgrade. Don't worry about the page looking messy, everything is readable once you understand the layout. With each build, you'll see a title, the exported list from PCPartPicker, the About section, the Augmentation section, and finally the benchmarks (if any). We don't have a build more expensive than the End-All as it would turn into a matter of a more customized build for the user (which we recommend seeking help from our sub) and the fact that there isn't a large demand for people with $1400+ builds.

Unbound-adblock is an easy to use network adblocker. It allows you to block online advertisements network wide and thus block ads on devices that otherwise don't support traditional browser-based adblockers such as uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus etc. I have found unbound-adblock to boost web browsing speed and increase battery life on mobile devices.
