Piatti del giorno 49
It’s one of those pull-quotes-from-the-same-article-series kinds of day. (Seriously, just go read the whole damned thing).
- The Ethics of Code - “When people don’t see the big picture, or when they think they’re only responsible for the thing that’s right in front of them, it’s easy for many individuals to be complicit in the creation of damaging things.”
- Healers & Dealers - “There is an ancient pact between tools and their users which says that tools should be used by their users, and not the other way around. Good tools should help their users accomplish a task by satisfying some pre-existing urge and then getting out of the way. Attention economies, at their most addictive, violate this pact.”
- A Staging Ground for the Future - “Soon, through the Internet, we are likely to fulfill the ancient Buddhist idea of experiencing the suffering of all living things.”
- FizzBuzz: A Deep Navel to Gaze Into - Certainly deeper than I thought. Huzzah for category theory.
