‘Fyre’ and ‘Fyre Fraud’: Which One is Better? (And Which One is Less Ethically Compromised?)

It’s been less than two years since the debacle of the Fyre Festival. The proposed event on a Bahamian island was going to showcase major musical acts such as Blink-182 and Major Lazer; it was overseen by, among others, rapper Ja Rule; and it would create a new Coachella or Burning Man for the social-media elite. Of course, the dreams of the festival organizers were revealed to be impossible at best and criminal at worst; when attendees (who had paid an insane amount of money) arrived, they...

Nine years later, Vikings fans revel in Saints' 'what-if' NFC title game loss

Welcome to the Monday edition of The Cooler, where schadenfreude is the Minnesota equivalent of winning the Super Bowl. Let's get to it. Any NFL season that advances far enough that the Vikings are no longer playing while others still are — so basically, every season in almost my entire lifetime, given that I was 2 months old the last time the Vikings played in the Super Bowl — offers fans of the purple a lot of "lesser of two evils" propositions when picking a side to root for in a playoff game...

Three concept designers visualize what the 2019 iPhone will look like

Leaks have become a very common part of Apple’s launch process. When you’re as big as Apple is, it’s difficult to keep everyone quiet. Somewhere in some part of the world, a factory worker clicks a picture of the iPhone Gorilla Glass being prototyped, or the aluminum frame being machined, and the rumors spread like wildfire. Helping bring some sort of depth to these rumors are concept phone designers, who quickly put together renders that, after a couple of rumors, end up looking exactly like th...

Mark Zuckerberg's Mentor 'Shocked and Disappointed' -- But He Has a Plan

Early Facebook investor Roger McNamee published a scathing 3,000-word article adapted from his new book Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe. Here's just one example of what's left him "shocked and disappointed": Facebook (along with Google and Twitter) has undercut the free press from two directions: it has eroded the economics of journalism and then overwhelmed it with disinformation. On Facebook, information and disinformation look the same; the only difference is that disinformatio...

Twitter Link Roundup #355 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

By now, the entire Netflix indulging world has heard of the diminutive-yet-formidable Mari Kondo. The tidying-up mania is literally and figuratively sweeping the nation as overwhelmed homeowners seek to create a little breathing room for themselves. The premise itself is a good one – a minimalist attitude toward stuff is healthy, and there’s something to be said for living with less. However, hidden beneath those shiny plastic bags stuffed with unused junk lurks an ugly reality. Each one of tho...

Holly, a Harvard seminarian and activist, invited Twitter users to DM her the dirty secrets of their industries, which she then anonymized and posted in a megathread with more than 600 parts (as of this writing); while many of them are mild or self-evident, many of them are the kind of sphincter-tightening or blood-boiling confessions that you always suspected might be true but hoped like hell were not. Some of them are also a little uplifting (library workers are reliably helpers with immi...

Twitter bug exposed some Android users’ private tweets since 2014

Today, Twitter disclosed a bug persisting from 2014 on its platform that affected protected tweets and accounts on Android. The company said the bug – active between November 2014 and January 2019 – switched off the “Turn your tweets private” option when users made changes to their account, like updating the email address associated with their account. That means private tweets from your protected accounts were not actually private after you turned on the necessary setting in the Android app. Th...
