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.
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.
