Dearests! How are we faring this fine morn, you know, other than the constant deluge of bad news beaming from our pocket computers? That’s it, that’s the intro.
TO THE INTERNET!
Hey, you know when social media companies claimed that they were neutral platforms and that they couldn’t engage in correcting and/or removing false political information because they weren’t publishers and had to stay “neutral” (which is patently insane because how are scientific facts political and whoops, now I’m screaming at my pothos plant.) Well, thank god, they’re putting that nonsense to rest in order to remove misinformation and promote good behaviors during the COVID-19 crisis. But in case that argument is ever raised again, don’t worry my doves, NBC’s David Ingram has the receipts: Coronavirus misinformation makes neutrality a distant memory for tech companies.
If you’re like me, you’re probably getting deluged by marketing emails detailing the COVID-19 policy of the random yoga studio in New Jersey you visited five years ago, and don’t worry, Fast Company will tell you why that is happening.
On Instagram, Britney Spears called for redistribution of wealth? What the heck? I mean, welcome to the resistance, Comrade Spears, we’re happy to have you.
Today, in heroes don’t always wear capes: This Tug Boat Just Sailed Down The Thames Blasting 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' BLESS YOU, HUMAN. BLESS YOU.
And finally, so many of you have sent this to me, so let’s all revel in the majesty of a metric crap tonne of elk straight up strutting near Banff, Alberta.
I really really really really really really like you! Be kind to each other, won’t you?
