  • Google transferred ownership of Duck.com to DuckDuckGo - This made quite the ruffle today when Google transferred the domain duck.com to the privacy focused search engine DuckDuckGo.

  • Rent-seeking - The Exponent podcast is back! And there’s a lot of news regarding pressure to change existing App Store pricing models. it seems incredibly worrisome to me anytime any company predicates its growth story on rent-seeking: it’s not that the growth isn’t real, but rather that the pursuit is corrosive on whatever it was that made […]
  • The case for slowing everything down a bit - Ezra Klein on increased digital friction: I believe that one reason podcasts have exploded is that they carry so much friction: They’re long and messy, they often take weeks or months to produce, they’re hard to clip and share and skim — and as a result, they’re calmer, more human, more judicious, less crazy-making. Klein […]
