I wrote about MK Ultra, a collaboration between filmmaker Adam Curtis and choreographer Rosie Kay about conspiracy theories and mind control. bit.ly/2K24Yce

Thinking about this idea of explicitly splitting exploratory and focus phases, and whether I need to give myself a deadline to commit to a single project sometime soon forum.effectivealtruism.org/po

Hi Friends, I've asked this before, but I'd love to hear more: What alternatives to Facebook, specifically for events, are folks using?

At long last I have written part 2, after viewing another ~3 hours of Christian Marclay's masterpiece The Clock: bit.ly/theclockpart2

Wish me luck as I attempt 10pm-4am tonight!

I have resolved to see and reflect upon all 24 hours of Christian Marclay's montage The Clock. Here's my first thoughts, on a half-hour of the afternoon: bit.ly/theclockpart1

Christian Marclay's The Clock, a twenty-four hour film cut together in a montage from other films whose action takes place in the current minute of the day, is a bit of a magnum opus. I've watched 13:55-14:30, 15:30-16:30, and around 23:45-1am so far. It's back on in London until January so I may have to write about it. Exciting, provocative, interesting.

Neat map of history of western philosophy in the form of connections of builds on/refutes denizcemonduygu.com/philo/brow

Finally got round to reading that long piece on the Air France disaster, tangentially about automation, which is well-worth it if you've been putting it off due to its length... vanityfair.com/news/business/2
