A quick burst of links before I head off to bed.
- Tristin Hopper of The National Post writes about Canadianisms that English speakers elsewhere in the world don’t understand. A winter hat is called a toque, damn it!
- Marvin Ammori of Wired explains that net neutrality is under attack in the United States. Uh oh.
- Tom Scocca of Gawker has a lengthy essay explaining how snark arose as a response to the insincerity of smarm.
- I don’t have time to comment on these pieces in detail, but both are well worth a read. Mike Krahulik of Penny Arcade has made a new year’s resolution to stop being a bully. Similarly, Katherine Cross wonders if call-out culture in activism is necessarily constructive. There’s lots to think about in both pieces, especially Cross’s, which eloquently puts into words a lot of things that I’ve been thinking about lately.
That’s enough jibber-jabber. Man, 2014 is young, and I’m already tired. *sigh*
