Popula popula.com/ has been my favorite place to go for engaged reporting and reflexive writing. So excited to know the many independent reporters I admire, Maria Bustillos, Brian Hioe, and more, are joining hands together:

"By pooling and sharing our subscribers, revenues, and expenses, the Brick House can deliver independent publications to readers collectively, efficiently, and at an attractive price."

A script that corrects the word "maker" into "guy who does arts and crafts"

"Maker space" = craft room

"Maker ethos" = enthusiasm for arts and crafts

"Maker fair" = craft expo

None of this shit is revolutionary, it's just stuff that your grandmas have always done. You are the newcomer. It's not any less arts-and-crafts just because it involves a 3D printer now.

> A first, obvious consideration is whether there will be enough space for what looks like a flood of prisoners heading for incarceration. Many of them will be there for very long periods of time as sentencing has traditionally been harsh in Hong Kong, and it is getting harsher as the Department of Justice presses for ever longer jail sentences.

> Secondly, what will happen to all these people once they are inside? There is strong evidence from history here, not least from the experience of jailed Communists prior to the Chinese Revolution. The lesson is that concentrating very large numbers of dissidents in jail turns the jails into schools for rebellion.

蔡友月:想像的病毒共同體——全球 vs.台灣生物民族主義之戰

「圍繞病毒形塑了不同國家的防疫共同體,透過國界管制下的身分認定,國家領土內公民的集體利益,政府抗疫成效所激發人民的榮譽與羞辱,以及配合防疫的公民社會責任,形塑出一種命運共同體的連帶感。COVID-19成為各國打造國族、國族認同與情感的新來源。台灣由於獨特的國家位格與防疫成果,成為這次在全球相當特殊的案例,備受矚目。」
