I recently watched Citizenfour, a fantastic documentary about Edward Snowden and the NSA. Everyone should see it. It’s a heavy dose of realism that’s painful to take in, but an absolute requisite that we do so, especially in this new year.
Last weekend, I attended Theorizing the Web (h/t Andrew) in Brooklyn, NY. There were many amazing talks throughout the conference, many of which I’ve been processing and ruminating on over the past week. True to their description, Theorizing the Web had an interesting mix of pure theory and applicable lessons from the web.
