A brief list of things I’ve been meaning to write about for months, but haven’t. It’s time to reclaim browser tabs!
- “This Mass Grave Isn’t the Mass Grave You Have Been Looking For”, Greg Grandin, The Nation. A succinct, if sad, timeline of discoing multiple mass graves in Mexico. (via NextDraft)
- EJ Fox and Mike Spies charted the reading level of every U.S. presidential speech ever. Very well done. “It’s tempting to read this as a dumbing down … but it’s actually a sign of democratization.” Maybe those are the same thing? (via kottke)
- “Public Perceptions of Privacy and Security in the Post-Snowden Era”, Mary Madden, Pew Research. Most are aware of government efforts to monitor communication, many are concerned about surveillance, and few change their behavior or take steps to be anonymous online. (via LoopInsight)
