"Explode the mountain!" John Oliver's latest Brexit update is excellent, as usual. (It's actually unavailable here in the UK, but this is too important to be thwarted by that - I mean, what else is a VPN for? 😛) https://youtu.be/HaBQfSAVt0s

Capitalism in a nutshell:
1. Invest all money in businesses that exploit natural resources (the environment/people) in an unquenchable, shortsighted & illogical thirst for perpetual growth within a closed system.
2. When ramifications become visible, blame the people forced to patronise those businesses due to lack of alternatives for being irresponsible in their personal consumption choices.
Rinse and repeat until we all die because we’ve destroyed our habitat.
So, how’s your week going? :)
I'm not a sleep scientist, but I've recently read a book by Matthew Walker who runs Harvard's sleep research laboratory and I wanted to share a whole bunch of important, useful and interesting details about sleep.
What is it, what it isn't, why is it important and how it affects us.
It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.
You don't have a "brand" – you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" – you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.
There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.
You're so much more than that. 💚
Man erlebe, wie einzelne Unionsvertreter beginnen, den Kompromiss infrage zu stellen, »obwohl sie in der Kommission vertreten waren«, zeigte sich DNR-Chef Niebert enttäuscht. Er nannte zwar keine Namen, hat aber offensichtlich Nordrhein-Westfalens Ministerpräsidenten Armin Laschet (CDU) im Blick.www.neues-deutschland.de/artik… #Klimakrise #NoCDU #Laschet #NRW #PoweredByRSS
This  is an amazing article about how human societies develop beliefs, how information is passed along and how different actors manipulate this process.
In case you get bored by the talk about science in the middle, it's still worth it to read further below where they talk about society and democracy.

Privacy is not a science, it is a human right
My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)
Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.
I often hear that since disabled individuals are the minority of the workforce, we don't have to prioritize #accessible software development... 62% of blind people are unemployed, and it's partially because of inaccessible software. If it's not accessible, it’s not ethical. #ux
