This week was a precursor though, because I've got the weekend off, and my brother, @theweirdwelch is coming to visit. Just the anticipation of both of these things make me quite happy as well. But enough real life stuff, let's talk about media consumption.
@xor live tweeted @snowden's talk at LibrePlanet: https://twitter.com/xor/status/711196584281837569. The talk isn't online yet, but it will be at media.libreplanet.org eventually. I particularly liked this quote, which is something I've been thinking about for a little while now:
- Julia Angwin, ProPublica: @JuliaAngwin
- Sarah Cohen, New York Times: @sarahcnyt
- Sam Sinyangwe, Campaign Zero: @samswey
- Brandon Smith, independent journalist: @muckrakery
- Nabiha Syed, Buzzfeed: @nabihasyed
@Diegor1901 linked me to Real-time Face Capture and Reenactment of RGB Videos, which is incredibly creepy technology.
I listened to Gaelynn Lea's Tiny Desk Concert, which is beautiful.
I discovered the cool NewsDiffs.
xkcd's It Begins made me laugh. I want a twitter bot that does this now.
I also enjoyed reading Warcraft 3 is still getting patched, almost 14 years after its launch.
I hope you have a great week!
