"In what ways are the non-stop interactions between databases and algorithms shaping our musical tastes? Do streaming platform business models inherently exploit artists when listener choice scales to infinity? Should speculative capitalism be the driving force for large-scale innovations in music technology, and is there a feasible alternative? Are we living in a technological golden age of creative possibility, cross-cultural communication, and sheer abundance, or a surveillance state controlled by privately-held brands promising endless access at the expense of imperceptible control? Answers to these questions are piloting digital music deep into the 21st century, but critically evaluating current technological developments means keeping an eye on the lessons of the past." - Station to Station | Features | Pitchfork

"If technology is to become, or, if you like, to remain the definitive industry of the 21st Century, its adherents might do more to cultivate the values of slowness, prolonged thought, and exhaustive reconsideration that can only come from someone who’s had their fill of sleep and been able to live a life separate from their work before returning again to think about why someone should have an email machine strapped to their wrist." - How Sleep Deprivation Drives The High Failure Rates of Tech Startups

Jus wanna be sitting in a library reading and writing all day. throwback to the old stressful times of doing stuff like that. Have 4 or 5 longer form posts that I want to work on (6 or 7 really) that I just can’t get the time to work on because I can’t set aside that many hours to just work on them and make some progress. Instead I just collect related links in google docs and continue on with my work-ordained life and falling into the abyss of social media.

"Greenpeace hails Apple, Facebook, and Google for committing themselves to reaching the goal of a-hundred-per-cent renewable-energy usage in their cloud-computing facilities, and for becoming more transparent about their current energy consumption. The report singles out Amazon for poor performance, giving it an F in both commitment to renewable energy and transparency" - Fire TV, and Amazon’s Commitment to Consumption : The New Yorker
