My Favorite Articles of the First Half of 2016
For the last six months, I’ve been recommending my favorite reading material on my newsletter on an (almost) regular basis. But within this growing collection of essays and articles are a couple that really stuck with me and that I keep mentioning in conversations. So here’s a list of those that I think deserve another read.
- China Miéville: The Limits of Utopia
- Robert Epstein: The empty brain
- George Monbiot: Neoliberalism — the ideology at the root of all our problems
- Anna Wiener: Uncanny Valley
- Sara Robinson: Bring back the 40-hour work week
- Jeffrey Goldberg: The Obama Doctrine
- Andrew Russell & Lee Pinsel: Hail the maintainers
- Brett Scott: You are the robots & Ellen Huet: The Humans Hiding Behind the Chatbots & Clare Corthell: Hybrid Intelligence: How Artificial Assistants Work
- Latoya Peterson: Do It For The Vine
- George Voss, Debbie Chachra & Sherri Wasserman: Situated Systems: Synthesis
So, what articles/essays/longreads stuck with you from the first half of 2016?
Not all these articles might be from 2016. But that’s when I found them.
