[this is also on medium because I can’t stand to read through 5000 words on my god-awful looking blog] Strava, the since-forever social fitness service, announced yesterday that a number of features previously available for free to any user were being transferred instead into the company’s paid offering. The Internet responded as you might expect, everyone seems to have a hot take, but for the most part, I don’t really have a problem with revised payment model. In fact I, Cosmo Catalano, ...

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.

Amazon's first-ever employee says the company is big enough where it could make sense to break it up

Amazon's first-ever employee, Shel Kaphan, is speaking out for the first time — and he's got major criticisms of the company he helped shepherd into existence. Among his criticisms, Kaphan suggested Amazon is "now at the scale" where federal regulators breaking up the company "could potentially make sense." "On one hand I'm proud of what it became," Kaphan said in the new Frontline documentary, "Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos." "It also scares me," he said. "I just feel like i...

Considering the Crucifix in the Wild West

Part 1. The Intro   Buckle up. We’re going for a wild ride today. (But at my wife’s request, I’m going to keep it moving.) She liked that last week’s column was info-dense, but also clocked in at 1200 words, rather than the 2500 I was dropping with regularity in #2019. After all the time I spent hoping that 2020 would finally come, it’s hard to believe the year is already 1/12 done. And what does 2020 mean, anyway? Obviously, I know that years are sequential, but who decided to start at 0? We’...

28 ways companies and governments can collect your personal data and invade your privacy every day

In modern life, privacy is no longer a given — people are being tracked on their daily commute, at work, online, and when they're shopping. That's because data is valuable. In 2018, American companies spent an estimated $19 billion attaining and interpreting consumer data. Data is a commodity to be sold for advertising, used by government agencies to stop crimes, or for companies to increase workplace productivity. Almost nothing is private anymore.

Watch Annie Leibovitz Photograph and Get Scolded by Queen Elizabeth: “What Do You Think This Is?”

No matter how many cultural icons you've met, Annie Leibovitz has almost certainly met more of them. Not only has she met them, she's talked with them, spent long stretches of time with them, told them what to do, and even looked into the nature of their very being — which is to say, she's photographed them. Having put in her crosshairs the likes of John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Christopher Hitchens, and Barack Obama, one would assume Leibovitz has lost entirely the ability to be intimid...

Liam Payne’s debut album bombs after accusations of biphobia

One Direction’s Liam Payne dropped his debut album LP1 earlier this month and the verdict is in: despite a heavy promotional campaign, the album is somewhere between a bomb and a dud. Not only did LP1 fail to hit the UK top 10, which is pretty crazy considering that just a few years ago Payne was one of the biggest pop stars in the country, but it only reached #111 on the US Billboard charts. It has also received mixed reviews by the few critics who have bothered to write anything about it. Muc...

Weekend reading: Thousands of ‘penis fish’ washed up on a beach

What caught my eye this week. N aturalists have been surprised by the sight of thousands of 10-inch pulsating penis-like creatures wriggling about on a windswept beach. The story was originally reported in the journal By Nature, which shared a photograph of one of the worms: In taking up the story, the Guardian explains: These penile figures typically burrow under the sand, far beneath the feet of beachgoers. But the recent storms brought on some waves that swept away the layers, leaving the...
