Information Diet 005

I’m reviving this series of posts – and will be including a number of links each week that summarise the things I had read that I thought were interesting or worth remembering about. I had a bit of a dilemma trying to figure out when to post – I think Friday might be the right time, so that I can avoid posting on the weekend.

Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

  • Mariana Mazzucato on the opportunity the pandemic offers for restructuring world economies in Foreign Affairs via Pluralistic
  • I’m a bit late to the party, but this serialised book On Necrocapitalism is very good.
  • Cool interview with open-access activist VM Brasseur on Uses This.
  • Judith Butler shows what it means to think about things for more than five minutes and repeatedly schools the person interviewing her in New Statesman.
  • Kelly Bartholomeusz on why diverse writers ought to stop being thought of only in terms of their ‘diversity’ in Overland.
  • Cory Doctorow’s long essay/short book on Ending Surveillance Capitalism published on the OneZero blog on Medium.
  • New story by Mazin Saleem at 3AM Magazine – always a treat!
  • Eda Günaydın in Liminal Magazine on eating fancy things in a neoliberal dystopia.
