We’ve been on hiatus for a couple of weeks, due to a period of intensive research. But we’re back in the swing once again!
This week, our attention was captured by:
An exploration of the misguided focus that pervades the tech industry.
This piece on the perception of the internet as a force that equalizes pop culture vs. the reality that traditional gatekeepers have harnessed it under their control.
An investigation of the potential for “human-aware” Artificial Intelligence.
A call-to-action for museums to contemplate their places in their communities through socially-aware, empathetic lenses.
Bonus: A NYT piece from July 4th on the “comeback” of the public library.
