My advisor gave me this little list of questions for research when I started working with him, and I've kept it pinned up in my office space ever since. It's surprisingly relevant, even outside academic research.

Yes, it is possible to have peace of mind by doing what you planned today. No, it is not necessary to extend yourself until you can no longer breath in order to do ever more stuff.

If I can finish my tasks today and be happy, I don't need to procrastinate because "I will never finish anyway".

@protonmail gave up metadata to cops that lead to an arrest. As a result they changed their false advertising that they do not log IP addresses when indeed they did and do. Very sad about the arrested person (apparently a climate activist) and fuckin annoyed I'm going to have to change my email service. In the meantime if you use Protonmail and want to be truly anonymous use @torproject wired.com/story/protonmail-ame

#Copenhagen has invested around 280 million euro in bike infrastructure in the last 10 years or so. That’s about the same cost as one 3 km bypass north of the city for cars. So you can choose…what would you rather have?” — @mortenkabell@twitter.com, via @colvilleandersn@twitter.com #CityMakingMath

“The massive destruction of privacy is a social harm. Don‘t accept the inevitability of surveillance-based data extraction but outlaw it!”, calls @shoshanazuboff@twitter.com on EU lawmakers.

If the police seize your phone during a protest, they can gain access to your location data. 📍🗺

I cynically suspect that by publishing and supporting extremely complex open source dev and infra tools, the tech giants are actively stifling competition, because only those BigCorps have teams large enough to use them.

No. Our ebooks do not use copy protection because it makes life harder for everyone. So we ask a favor of our readers. If you want to share your copy of an ebook you’ve bought with a friend, please do so as you would with a physical book, meaning that if your friend uses it regularly, they should buy a copy.

Just had someone DM me saying they got Google money for their NGO and Google might be terrible but taking their money doesn’t make your organisation bad. So I told them I could probably get them funding from Saudi Arabia and they went silent. I don’t understand… can someone explain it to me?
