I think we on the left could use a lot more friendly, approachable media. While I love me some good aggressive graphic design, right now, I think the right is consistently winning the propaganda game in part because they wrap their ideas with really easy-to-swallow tone and appeals to common sense. We can do that too, in pursuit of a more compassionate, humane, and just world.

So I made a couple images for my local chapter of the IWW that I'm pretty proud of.

I have SVG versions of these if people want to play with them. I'm happy for these to be spread widely; please download them, share them, modify them, whatever. Information wants to be free!

affirmations from Duncan Trussell…
If you find yourself from time to time not meditating as I often do and think, “My God, I’m not meditating!” Remember, you’re thinking about meditating and that’s a wonderful thing. Even if it’s in the negative. You’ve been given the gift of feeling bad about not meditating. The grace is that you could be thinking about McDonalds right now. You could be thinking about, “Fuck man, when’s the McRib coming back?” But your mind is being drawn towards these things.

Oy, that Endeavour show is not good yet we keep watching it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I guess it can’t all be No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

For this week’s episode I spoke to Emaline Friedman. She's an activist for the Commons Engine, part of Holochain, a social critic and theorist, has a PhD in psychology, a writer for Mad In America, a researcher at GCAS, and author of a recent book on Internet Addiction.

During the interview we talk about her research for her new book at the intersection of psychology, big data on social media platforms, and how it all brought her to and the Commons Engine.
