Gillmor Gang: Walk the Dinosaur

Clubhouse hosted another excellent conversation between Josh Constine and Facebook’s audio czar Fidji Simo. The format continues to sparkle, as I was once again forced to choose between MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell and just plain audio. JPA won going away. The talk was crisp and the strategies thick with optimism about the creator economy. Monetization, priming the emergent pump, etc. If this were the Gold Rush, it would be blue skies ahead for picks and shovels and pans. It re...

It's Apparently Possible to Drill a Key Ring Hole Into Apple's AirTags Without Messing Them Up

One of the first things that jumped out to me when I saw Apple’s long-awaited AirTags was their surface, which reminds me of a giant, polished M&M. Like real M&Ms, AirTags don’t have any holes, which means that you have to buy AirTag accessories to hook the device to your keys or hang it on your purse. However,…Read more...

Should Colleges Break Down How Much Money Students Make For Each Major?

The Boston Globe published some thoughts from a professor of political science at Fordham University: A bipartisan group of senators, including Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, are backing a bill called the College Transparency Act. It would require public and private colleges around the country to report how many students enroll, transfer, drop out, and complete various programs. Then that information would be combined with inputs from other federal agen...

Lynk & Co — an interesting car ownership concept coming to Sweden

A new car brand, Lynk & Co, is launching in Sweden. Wifey and I had started to look around for a slightly bigger car than our Audi sedan. We weren’t quite decided, but we were thinking about going for a Volvo XC60. We live in Stockholm and neither of us needs a car to get to work, neither do we need a car to get around in general. We do like to make domestic road trips to visit family and we do like to get away on various trips to nurture our shared passion for nature photography. But we ...

Investigation Finds Links Between Seamy Slander Sites and Reputation-Management Services

This week the New York Times published their online investigation into the seamy world of the professional slander industry. (Alternate URL.) At first glance, the websites appear amateurish. They have names like BadGirlReports.date, BustedCheaters.com and WorstHomeWrecker.com. Photos are badly cropped. Grammar and spelling are afterthoughts. They are clunky and text-heavy, as if they're intended to be read by machines, not humans. But do not underestimate their power... One woman in Ohio was...

Motikom MPlus BT Intercom Headphones Review

Introduction While we cope with the ups and down of our COVID-19 pandemic world, many of us are also well into or at least getting cranked up for another riding season – appreciating regional limitations and concerns of course; motorcycling can truly be an insular and socially distanced safe activity. One of the best ways, at least for me, to cope with things, especially over the winter months, is in having new and different products to look at and then anxiously look ahead to spring when said ...
