- Read: New EU rules for smartphones and tablets: still far from a true Right to repair
- Reading: Platform Socialism. Liking the chapter on guild socialism and democratic planning, heavily featuring G. D. H. Cole and Otto Neurath. And the subsequent chapter on civic platforms, featuring platform cooperativism, new municipalism, public-commons partnerships.
- Re-read Radical Technologies by Adam Greenfield and it remains an absolute banger. Thorough critique of the technologies you see bandied around as part of the 'Fourth Industrial Revolution' - smartphones, IoT, AR/VR, blockchain, digital fabrication, automation, ML/AI. Fair, but mostly damning, and still right on point 5 years since publication. The last two chapters on the Stacks, possible futures and tactics are gold.
