The Atlantic: Charles Duhigg’s Productivity Tips from Smarter, Faster, Better.

Why is it that the more work I have to do, the more the internet beckons me into its endless maw of distraction?” Timely.

Were the DNC emails ‘tampered with’?

This is the original article for this rumor, being widely misinterpreted. Scroll down to paragraph beginning “The metadata in the leaked documents ...” and read from there (if you want to cut to the chase on this subject).

Money quote: “Although so far the actual content of the leaked documents appears not to have been tampered with, manipulation would fit an established pattern of operational behaviour in other contexts, such as troll farms or planting fake media stories.”

The media is presenting this all over the ideological map. Beware what/who you believe on this one.

Tried Prisma, the latest popular cam app on iOS.

Robot @ Meow Wolf.

Totally fun, more fun than VSCO, Instagram filters, etc. [You can turn off the watermark in the prefs - didn’t realize until after I proc’d that shot.]

NY Times: Why We Need to Pick Up Alvin Toffler’s Torch.

In many large ways, it’s almost as if we have collectively stopped planning for the future. Instead, we all just sort of bounce along in the present, caught in the headlights of a tomorrow pushed by a few large corporations and shaped by the inescapable logic of hyper-efficiency — a future heading straight for us. It’s not just future shock; we now have future blindness.” Another one, very worth your time.
