  2. Cory Doctorow advertises for his latest book, but also talks about how technology can both aid and combat inequality: https://www.theguardian.com/inequality/2017/may/31/technology-is-making-the-world-more-unequal-only-technology-can-fix-this-cory-doctorow
  3. SMBC Comic asks: “what happened?" http://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/moody
  4. Taser is rebranding to Axon so we will forget the deaths, damage, and misuse associated with the company: https://thebaffler.com/latest/less-lethal-weapon-meyer
