My spending moratorium while on vacation

Kim and I are back from a week-long beach vacation with her brother and his family. We traveled to a luxury timeshare resort where it was super easy to practice social distancing because almost nobody was there. (The place was running at maybe 10% capacity because of COVID, and the level of cleanliness was mind-boggling. I felt safer there than at home! Sanitizer, mask, wipe your feet. Instant-read thermometers. Digital menus. Etc. Etc. Etc.) This trip was a terrific early test of my spending mo...

Favorite Media of 2020

For the 11th consecutive time (previously: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019), here’s my massive look-back at all my favorite things that I consumed over the past year. As always, this is limited to things that were released in 2020, and it’s of course HIGHLY subjective — this is not a round-up of the best media of 2020, but rather a look back at stuff I really enjoyed this past year, because I like the exercise of doing it. And that of course means there’s plen...

Christchurch attacker was radicalised on YouTube: Inquiry by NZ govt

The gunmen who attacked two mosques in March last year in Christchurch, New Zealand, frequently visited YouTube as “a significant source of information and inspiration” rather than extreme right-wing websites, according to an inquiry report submitted by a Royal Commission that was appointed by the Kiwi government. Although the attacker, Brenton Tarrant, had visited extremist chat rooms and forums on other websites like Reddit, 4chan and 8chan, YouTube played a far more influential role, the repo...

How western travel influencers got tangled up in Pakistan's politics

Travel bloggers have flocked to Pakistan in recent years – but have some of them become too close to the authorities? Long before she became headline news in Pakistan, Cynthia Dawn Ritchie was simply a tourist. In 2009, Ritchie, an American woman living in Houston, Texas, took a trip to Karachi, the sprawling megacity in southern Pakistan. At the time, Pakistan was beset by terrorist violence, and the travel advice of most western countries could be summarised as “don’t go”. But Ritchie had been...

“Bonded Labour”: sanitation workers in Chandigarh protest against being forced to wear GPS tracking devices

Sanitation workers in Chandigarh are being treated like “cattle”, they claim. With the help of GPS-enabled smartwatches adorned on the safai karamcharis’ wrists, faceless supervisors track their every move from a centralised command. When a worker strays from their assigned location, the system flags them; if they take a long break and are at the same place for too long, the system flags them. The Chandigarh Safai Karamchari Union calls this system “bonded labour“. Bezwada Wilson, national conve...

So much classic black and white footage has been digitally colorized recently, it’s hard to remember that the Eastman Kodak Company's Kodachrome film debuted way back in 1935. The above footage of New York City was shot by an unknown enthusiast in and around 1937.
