What I’ve been reading this week, 28 September 2018


My first full week back at work after my honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands has been a busy one. Here are some of the more worthwhile web reads I’ve picked up along the way.

Outdoors and photography

15 Steps to Help with Depression – Number 1 – Be Aware – An extract from Keith Foskett’s new book, High and Low, which covers the important subject of depression and the outdoors.

Camplife on the High Sierra – I love David Lintern’s photo diaries. He has a knack for selecting images that really tell the story of a journey.

Vandalism and rubbish at Corrour Bothy – flabbergasting.

A Year In The Making… – Louis Murphy’s 12-month photographic project is rather lovely.

Entanglement and social media reform

It’s been a hell of a week for news stories about big tech companies doing nefarious things:

Why I’m done with Chrome – ‘Google has spent millions of dollars adding additional tracking features to both Chrome and Android. They aren’t doing this for fun; they’re doing this because it clearly produces data they want.’

Facebook is giving advertisers access to your shadow contact information – Gruber now considers Facebook a ‘criminal enterprise’. Even before this week’s revelations it would be hard to disagree.
