NASA Probe Snaps Selfie of Earth from 71 Million Miles Away

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, selfies are a byproduct of the sheer ubiquity of cameras. And part of the reason for this ubiquity is that optical technology has advanced so much – and become so much cheaper in the process – over the past two decades that it is astounding. Image from NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Lockheed Martin Space. Of course, one area where optical technology has really delivered some non-selfie dividends for humanity is in outer space where we receive photographs of a history-...

This post is probably a couple of weeks overdue, but I wasn’t mentally ready yet to tackle it. Posts like this one require a great deal of emotional energy and, frankly, I haven’t been up to it lately. But it’s something I need to do for myself, if no one else as it really does help me organize my thoughts and get ready for a new year.

The #10YearChallenge Is Harder on Women Than You Think

One of the first internet challenges to go viral this year on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is #HowHardDidAgingHitYou, or the #10YearChallenge. The challenge requires users to share a photo from 10 years ago side-by-side with a current photo.

Every little bit helps

Quitting Facebook. Renouncing Uber. Avoiding Amazon. There have never been more or greater reasons for turning your back entirely on much of Big Tech. The last few years have brought an endless stream of scandals and unflattering revelations. There aren’t many starry-eyed optimists left who still believe that Silicon Valley is just here to build a better world. We’ve almost all come to accept the fact that Big Tech is here less to help the world and more to devour it. If you’ve reached a s...

Instagram caught selling ads to follower-buying services it banned

Instagram has been earning money from businesses flooding its social network with spam notifications.

This is despite Instagram reiterating a ban on these businesses in November and threatening the accounts of people who employ them. A TechCrunch investigation initially found 17 services selling fake fo...
