There's a precise point where this article loses all credibility:
"""Much of the language of JEDI, in fact, seems specifically tailored for Jeff Bezos. “Everybody immediately knew that it was for Amazon,” says a rival bidder who asked not to be named. To even make a bid, a provider must maintain a distance of at least 150 miles between its data centers, a prerequisite that only Amazon can currently meet. JEDI also asks for “32 GB of RAM”—the precise specification of Amazon’s services. (Microsoft, by contrast, offers only 28 GB, and Google provides 30 GB.)"""

"""After the Singularity, most people chose to die.

The dead pity us and call us the left behind, as if we were unfortunate souls who couldn't get to a life raft in time. They cannot fathom the idea that we might choose to stay behind. And so, year after year, relentlessly, the dead try to steal our children."""

Staying Behind by Ken Liu is an unflinching look at the potential consequences of the Singularity.

"""gHacks recently reported that Mozilla plans to remove support for RSS & Atom related features. Specifically Live Bookmarks and their feed reader.

The reasons cited are the lack of usage. This doesn’t completely surprise me. Both of the features don’t fit that well with modern workflows. There’s not a lot of people using bookmarks actively except through auto-complete, and the reader interface never really was as effective as just looking at a website. Honestly the day that Mozilla didn’t show the feed-discovery button by default in the address bar is the day they killed it."""

RSS has died more times than Phil Coulson.

Somehow I forgot that this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBwjxBmMszQ existed.

Future historians will investigate rumours that this video existed and many of them will believe the Snapcash video was merely apocryphal.

This: https://medium.com/s/story/your-company-needs-a-digital-ombudsman-pronto-9454c61c273b is one of those ideas that seems superficially attractive but in practice doesn't have a track record of success. That's partly because people don't have a clear sense of what success would look like.

It's also because people want a role that is paid for by companies but which acts like a regulator with pre-emptive veto power over the decisions by those companies.

The Great British Civil War of 2014-2019. Five years of endless Brexit has worn the nation thin, pitching brother against brother on Facebook and Twitter. Prolonged trench warfare waged by newspapers, foreign armies of irregulars pitching in to support their side in the conflict. War funds being sent to support militias, fortunes being made by looters.
