Trying not to lose too much time checking out the global clock
thehtime.com/. Intriguing idea, the full article is also fascinating (medium.com/adventures-in-consu), especially the part about identifying days by the position of the earth relative to the sun. Reminds me of the hours I lost obsessing over calendars thanks to 99 percent invisible (99percentinvisible.org/episode).

R.I.P Howard Frederick. We should challenge the narrative that the corporate/military/right wing have always directed the development of the Internet.

Thinking about how the whole idea of “alpha male” wolves is a myth, based off behaviour only exhibited in captivity. Also thinking about how capitalism & colonialism are effectively systems of captors and captives.

When not in captivity, violent struggles between wolves for dominance are rare or non existent. Meanwhile, the majority of people live in some kind of captivity. How does this change our behaviour? What would we be like if the majority were instead free?

"Fossil fuel companies are suing governments across the world for more than $18bn (£13bn) after action against climate change has threatened their profits"

This is it. This is literally capitalists dropping the mask and affirming the "profit over people" dogma in court.
