Sunday Links

Some interesting links for your Sunday.

  1. On the Intellect of the Octopus
  2. What can Bonobos teach us about natural language?
  3. The shareware scene that was Doom
  4. Thinking about Slack as a social network
  5. From Naval: Groups search for consensus, individuals search for truth
  6. Tails OS is a portable operating system that protects your privacy and helps you avoid censorship (with a tutorial for the ultra-paranoid among us)
  7. An excellent history of Maxis, SimCity, and SimRefinery
  8. Rediscovering the Small Web
  9. On America’s new ideology of race (and what’s wrong with it) – highly recommended
  10. Maybe DNA is like precompiled software
  11. You should probably choose boring technology most of the time

I found this tweet to be especially poignant:

Have a great Sunday.
