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.

35 Women from the History of Philosophy

I wrote this last year, but it’s current as ever, especially since today is International Women’s day.

Here’s a list of 35 Women from the History of Philosophy.

Please also spend some time today thinking about the relationship you have with the women in your life and make sure you’re not acting badly.
