I have a slew of links to share, but it doesn't feel like a good time to share a slew of links. The daily news feels like a daily test of the paradox of tolerance and I've been thinking about that quite a bit. Also, brushing up on the concept of hate speech has been helpful for me.

(Update: Google management takes an alternative view.)

New York Times: To Protect Voting, Use Open-Source Software - We have been having this conversation since voting machines were invented. This should be obvious. The Atlantic: Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - See Betteridge, but there's more than just the headline here. Teen Vogue: We Need to Talk About Digital Blackface in Reaction GIFs Siggraph 2017: Deep Bilateral Learning - Teaching computers to edit photographs like a human.

Ask Polly: It Seems Like My Friends Don’t Like Me - "We have to find a way to bring the sharp edges and troubling complications and glorious moments of joy into a world that communicates with a series of popping-Champagne emoji and eye roll memes." New York Times: Thanks to Venmo, We Now All Know How Cheap Our Friends Are - An update on PayPal's peer-to-peer option. Stanford Business: Why Working From Home Is a “Future-looking Technology” Dan Hon has been knocking neural network social commentary comedy out of the park lately by simulating Ask MetaFilter questions and Hacker News headlines.
