An Andreessen Horowitz partner explains 3 big cybersecurity trends that are winning out because of COVID-19 — and the hardest part about starting a new company during the crisis

Martin Casado is a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, the legendary venture-capital firm that had early investments in Facebook, Lyft, Slack, and many other tech powerhouses.  Casado said the firm did not believe COVID-19 would lead to completely new technology trends, but that it would accelerate certain areas that were already succeeding.  The three big cybersecurity trends that he expects to continue gaining momentum are remote work, virtual private networks, and identity-based securit...

The Moment When Bob Dylan Went Electric: Watch Him Play “Maggie’s Farm” at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965

The phrase “when Dylan went electric” once carried as much weight in pop culture history as “the fall of the Berlin Wall” carries in, well, history. Both events have receded into what feels like the distant past, but in the early 1960s, they likely seemed equally unlikely to many a serious Bob Dylan fan in the folk scene. The also seemed equally consequential. To understand the culture of the decade, we must understand the import of Dylan’s appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965...

Weird History looks back at the year 1980

If you were sentient in 1980, this summary of that watershed year will bring back a flood of memories. If you weren't, behold the weird world of 40 years ago. While the aesthetic is dead on, it's not so much weird history as it is regular history, which happens to be weird. Via Weird History: 1980. The start of the decade. It was a totally rad decade that was filled with many changes to our culture. From the rise of Ronald Reagan to the tragic ending of John Lennon, the year 1980 would see...

HOA Homefront: But I disagree with the board. What next?

In our culture today, disagreement is mishandled more than ever before. However, disagreement is to be expected between directors of common interest developments (aka HOAs), and the way it is understood and handled can either enhance or harm the association community and its governance. Voting “no” is not disloyal. Volunteer directors are expected to think independently and use their best judgment on board decisions and not just rubber-stamp their colleague’s opinions. With varying backgrounds a...

What it's like when one of your oldest friends becomes a conspiracy theorist

Online conspiracy theories about COVID-19 are having real-world impacts. In the UK, conspiracy theorists who falsely connect the pandemic to the increasing use of 5G technologies have set mobile masts on fire. I spoke to a former school friend who was one of the smartest in class, but has since spent many years totally absorbed in multiple conspiracy theories. One expert in misinformation said conspiracy theories were a way for people to establish control during frightening events like a pande...

I have adopted an answer to the mystery of the strange photograph: The Phantom Gnat!

You remember this photograph I posted yesterday, an image I was surprised to find among my sunrise photographs and not something I was trying to do: I had said in the comments: "I know it’s out of focus, but why? And why is the sun a full circle? It was only a quarter of the way up."Oddly, some people were talking about the "circle of confusion" (a complicated subject in photography) and others were talking about the song by Cyrkle, "Red Rubber Ball" (because, as Paul Simon wrote in the lyrics,...

Don’t wave the white flag on America

One of the very first things I did after moving into my house was put up a flag pole. I borrowed a posthole digger, mixed some cement, and set the pole overnight. I raised the flag the next morning and have flown it every day since, 20 years now, and it will fly again today. I don’t fly the flag as a partisan statement, and while I’m getting up there in age, I don’t need to see the flag to remember what country I live in. I fly the flag as an expression of pride and gratitude for the freedoms, o...

Written in Stone 2020

 I have been immensely interested in the many debates surrounding statues, flag designs, and the naming of buildings, universities, and even lakes in the past several months.  The Duke University Press published in September 2018 a second edition of my 1998 book Written in Stone:  Public Monuments in Changing Societies.  2018  seems like far more than two years ago, even if one takes into account the fact that I was adding to my 20,000 word "afterword" until literally the day the book went to p...

When the Beatles Refused to Play Before Segregated Audiences on Their First U.S. Tour (1964)

When American rock and roll made its way to the UK in the 1950s and 60s, along with a burgeoning folk and blues revival, many young British fans hadn’t been conditioned to think of music in the same way as their U.S. counterparts. “Unlike racially segregated Americans,” for example, “the Beatles didn’t see—or hear—the difference between Elvis and Chuck Berry,” writes Joseph Tirella, “between the Everly Brothers and the Marvelettes.” They also couldn’t see playing to segregated audien...

Unbundling DACA and Unpacking Regents: What Chief Justice Roberts Got Right

Benjamin Eidelson This post offers preliminary analysis of DHS v. Regents, last Thursday’s Supreme Court decision invalidating the 2017 rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. I’ll focus mainly on Chief Justice Roberts’ approach to the merits, which closely tracks a theory developed in a brief that I co-authored on behalf of the “D.C. Respondents” (as well as an op-ed that I published in the fall). [1] I’ll also flesh out the Court’s sound reasons for refusing...

Staying In With Vienna Shorts

Cooped up inside like the rest of the world, I found myself doing the same things everyone else was doing: puzzles, books, listening to music, and watching loads of TV and film. As I juggled streaming options, old black and white films, and monster movies I was pretty excited to get an online pass for Vienna Shorts 2020. Held from May 28th to June 2 and featuring over 280 short films from around the world, there was a lot to dig into. One of the things I love about short films is that th...

How to dissolve your ego—and why you should

Many of us are held back by the idea of ourselves that our egos have built and will do anything to maintain. Oftentimes this manifests as a fear of failure, an inability to start on new projects, or the evasion of responsibility. Here we have five suggestions on how to keep your ego in check. Even for those who aren't self-absorbed, egos can get in the way more often than we'd like. Having a sense of self isn't bad, but we can become so invested in the idea of who we are that we refuse to take n...

How “Strawberry Fields Forever” Contains “the Craziest Edit” in Beatles History

The story of “Strawberry Fields Forever” is more or less the story in miniature of the Beatles' reinvention after they swore off touring in 1966 and disappeared into the studio to make their most innovative albums. It was not, as some Beatles fans might remember, an easy transition right away. Some of their fans, it turned out, were fickle, easily swayed by gossip as the latest TV trends. “While unsubstantiated break-up rumors swirled, some music fans became disenchanted with the group,”...
