I really like the idea of digital obfuscation. Wondering if I am too lazy to try it...
A bracing, thoughtful review of Lepore's history of the US
A very sad case that highlights how racial identity is not given by a skin marker but, rather, has to do with power
A really good reminder about one of the biggest mistakes made in the 20th Century
In case folks haven't seen it....
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

A succinct and rocking analysis of the turn towards technocrats in the move to a finance-oriented economy. Highly recommended, especially because it puts a bunch of folks in context: Volcker, Friedman, etc.
A local perspective (i.e., not the NYTimes) on St. Cloud and racism
This essay is amazing! Highly recommended!
I don't have enough context to vouch for every detail but I do find this piece convincing and very troubling
Oh, boy, this is a bummer.....
This article makes a succinct but very clear argument about the opportunities lost in the Obama presidency. To be clear: Obama is personally admirable. But he wasn't nearly as effective as I would have liked. He also allowed the Democratic party to become ossified.
Another article on Critical Theory that meets my requirement of length (short), style (well-written), and rhetorical strategy (clear). And I think they are right.
Read this piece if you can--it is one of the most illuminating articles I've read recently. And it's not long!
This is an excellent article--definitely recommended!
What if we just cut out the middle man, and hosted all of the world's business computation directly on the CIA's servers?
If there's one group of people you can guarantee won't pry into secrets that aren't theirs, it's the Intelligence Community!
