Bill Nye Shows How Face Masks Actually Protect You–and Why You Should Wear Them

Like many Americans of my generation, I grew up having things explained to me by Bill Nye. Flight, magnets, simple machines, volcanoes: there seemed to be nothing he and his team of young lieutenants couldn't break down in a clear, humorous, and wholly non-boring manner. He didn't ask us to come to him, but met us where we already were: watching television. The zenith of the popularity of his PBS series Bill Nye the Science Guy passed a quarter-century ago, and the world has changed a bi...

A Chilling Time-Lapse Video Documents Every COVID-19 Death on a Global Map: From January to June 2020

The story of the Coronavirus, at least in the US, has swung between a number of rhetorical tics now common to all of our discourse. Called a “hoax,” then given several racist nicknames and dismissed as a “nothing burger,” the pandemic—currently at around 3 million cases in the country, with a U.S. death toll over 130,000—has now become the “new normal,” a phrase that pops up everywhere you look. “This framing is inviting,” writes Chime Asonye at the World Economic Forum. It conveys “the ...

On Social Media and Character

Madison Fischer, a professional sport climber, recently pointed me toward an insightful essay she published on her blog about her battle with social media. Early in her climbing career, Madison was exposed to Instagram. At first she posted pictures of her cat; then pictures of competitions; then her training; then she had a professional account where she could carefully track the demographics of her viewers, optimizing when she posted, and synchronizing her online behavior with a carefully-cali...

‘The waste and excess is more visible’: how coronavirus is shaking up fashion

The industry has been taken apart at the seams. Is this the end of lavish shows and packed front rows?It was on the morning of 18 March, when Glastonbury was confirmed cancelled, that Sarah Gresty, BA course leader in fashion at Central Saint Martins (CSM), realised that the class of 2020 would be a graduating year unlike any other. “That was when we thought: OK, this is only heading one way. After that, everything happened really fast. That evening many of the international students started get...

Watch Jean-Luc Godard’s Filmmaking Masterclass on Instagram

As the last living major French New Wave director, Jean-Luc Godard has become a kind of oracle for younger filmmakers and cinéastes. Despite having turned 89 last December, he remains in a sense what film scholar David Bordwell not long ago called  "the youngest filmmaker at work today." When Godard started working in cinema just about 65 years ago, it didn't take him long to make his name by breaking its rules. Ever since, he's warded off complacency by continuing to rethink, at the most ...

A Michigan Family Makes Everyone Passing Their House Do Monty Python Silly Walks, and Then Puts Recordings on Instagram

Even if you don't know the Beatles, you know "Love Me Do." Even if you don't know the Rolling Stones, you know "Satisfaction." Even if you don't know Monty Python, you know "The Ministry of Silly Walks." Like an AM radio hit, the sketch works on several different aesthetic and intellectual levels while captivating audiences of disparate ages and cultures, all within the span of a few minutes. As a satire of British government bureaucracy it compares, in its way, to Antony Jay and Jonatha...

No prom. No awards night. No graduation? Class of 2020 gets creative with celebrations

Isolated at home during the coronavirus pandemic with almost no chance for a prom or graduation ceremony, Eagle Rock High School senior Lincoln Debenham had an idea. He tweeted a message to former President Barack Obama, asking if he would record a national commencement speech to encourage the Class of 2020. A few days later, the tweet — liked 223,000 times — was picked up by ABC News and CNN and reached Obama, who reportedly was “very flattered” but made no commitment, Debenham said. “We experi...

Benedict Cumberbatch, Margaret Atwood, Stephen Fry & Others Read Letters of Hope, Love & Support During COVID-19

Though the coronavirus pandemic has put a stop to many formerly normal activities around the world, it's hardly put a stop to global communication. In fact, it's almost certainly intensified global communication, what with all the attention the struggle against COVID-19 commands from 24-hour media professionals — and all the time and energy the rest of us have put into social media as a substitute for socialization. But how would we have communicated amid a pandemic of this kind in an ag...

Radiohead Will Stream Concerts Free Online Until the Pandemic Comes to an End

Force thousands of musicians to stay home in their studios and what do you get? There’ll be an album boom for sure, just as there’s been an explosion of direct-to-you online live performances, interviews, and social media messages. Most recently, Richard D. James, aka electronic legend Aphex Twin, . And Radiohead—a band with an equally loyal fanbase and as much longevity and experimental nerve—announced they’re “doing their bit,” as Dazed reports, “by uploading the best of their concert...

With coronavirus-prompted distance learning, teens cope with social isolation, new stressors

A cluster of friends high-fived and chatted at the entrance to Reseda Charter High on Wednesday morning, standing rather close to one another at a time when public health officials caution against breaching 6 feet with anyone outside your household. They stood in a line that snaked around the block to pick up school-issued laptops for remote instruction. It’s been nearly two weeks since schools in Southern California and across the nation shuttered, hoping to hamper spread of the coronavirus pan...

Patrick Stewart Is Reading Every Shakespeare Sonnet on Instagram: One a Day “to Keep the Doctor Away”

  View this post on Instagram   It has led me to undertake what follows. When I was a child in the 1940s, my mother would cut up slices of fruit for me (there wasn't much) and as she put it in front of me she would say: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." How about, “A sonnet a day keeps the doctor away”? we go: Sonnet 1. A post shared by Patrick Stewart (@sirpatstew) on Mar 22, 2020 at 4:28pm PDT After receiving...

Live Performers Now Streaming Shows, from their Homes to Yours: Neil Young, Coldplay, Broadway Stars, Metropolitan Operas & More

You've always read books in the comfort of your own home. Though it may not be the full cinematic experience, you can also watch films there, in a pinch. Now that such a pinch has come, in the form of coronavirus pandemic-related quarantines and other forms of isolation, few art forms must be feeling it more than live music and theatre. Though we've all watched recorded performances now and again, we know full well that nothing can quite replicate the felt energy of the live experience. ...

An Artist Tricks Google Maps Into Creating a Virtual Traffic Jam, Using a Little Red Wagon & 99 Smartphones

Sometimes the miraculous time-saving conveniences we’ve come to depend on can have the opposite effect, as artist Simon Wickert recently demonstrated, ambling about the streets of Berlin at a Huck Finn-ish pace, towing a squeaky-wheeled red wagon loaded with 99 secondhand smartphones. Each phone had a SIM card, and all were running the Google Maps app. The result? A near-instantaneous "virtual traffic jam” on Google Maps, even though bicyclists seem to vastly outnumber motorists alon...

The Platform Exceptionalism of YouTube

The major social media services are often described as fundamental platforms of the internet age. The companies that control these services use this argument to justify their astronomical valuations, and their critics use it to validate the need for regulatory intervention. As longtime readers know, I’m often skeptical of this digital deification. Services like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram aren’t really platforms: instead of providing core functionalities on which others can build ...

Kamala’s Fake Lover: Jacob Wohl Told Me It Was for a Spike TV Show

Inept conservative operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman held another bizarre press conference in Burkman’s driveway on Wednesday, this time to smear Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) with obviously fake allegations of an extramarital affair. And like past efforts to manufacture sexual claims against Trump foes—from Robert Mueller, to Pete Buttigieg, to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)—the Harris charade fell apart quickly. The pair’s bogus accuser—26-year-old Sean Newaldass—told The Daily Beast on Friday ...

“It’s Like I Couldn’t Stop”: A Digital Minimalism Case Study

A scene from the undisclosed North Country location where I’ve been living a minimalist life dedicated to writing, parenting loud boys, and dreading the administrative demands of the upcoming fall semester.

(If you’re interested in browsing some of the interviews and press about the book, I’ve been doing my best to update my media page with some highlights.) One of the nice things about havin...

The Dynamite Circle: A Long Tail Social Media Case Study

This network, abbreviated simply as DC, has around 1200 enthusiastic members. In theory, these individuals could have found each other and organized on exist...
