Half-way through "Enlightenment Now" by Steven Pinker: it's quite good on providing me with interesting data and putting stuff in perspective!

Just wondering though... are there some actionable lessons in the latter chapters?

I really want to finish it quickly and start the next book I bought X-|

Time to listen at 1.85x speed!

RT @fr3ino@twitter.com: Because of , USA Today decided to run a separate version of their website for EU users, which has all the tracking scripts and ads removed. The site seemed very fast, so I did a performance audit. How fast the internet could be without all the junk! 🙄

Very productive day! Started at 8am this morning: played some Fortnite, sent to my alumn the photo they asked for a month ago for a booklet I'm featured in, visited two museums here in London with family, prepared my Canadian taxes ready for shipping, cooked dinner and watched the ghostbusters on netflix with my niece!

Can anybody here help translate these kanji on a vase my father bought here in London? 🙏

I hear a lot of talk about the effects of phones / TVs on children's / teenagers' brains... But what I really worry about is the effect on older folks, boomers like my parents, which should be contributing to our democracy, meeting "the others", participating to the dialogue, and instead are consuming social media and news... They were never given the talk on the dangers of media addiction... what's this doing to our social fabric...?

One of my best friends in Italy has graduated, but seems to have lost hope of finding a job and now lives as a NEET ("Not in Education, Employment, or Training", en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NEET)
