A newsletter by Dan Cohen on technology that helps rather than hurts human understanding, and human understanding that helps us create better technology.
His blog(s) are already cool enough, but Dan is also now putting out some additional (and different) great material by means of his newsletter. If you want great stuff, follow the librarians I always say.
I teach mathematics courses at University of Toronto Mississauga and Seneca College since 2016 when my family moved to Canada from Singapore. I taught full-time at Singapore Polytechnic as a math lecturer from 2012 to 2016. This is the space where I explore and share my journey of teaching mathematics, conducting education research projects, and learning about OER.
This blog records the thoughts, ideas, and daydreams of a software and web developer, sometime blogger, and somewhat secret internet superhero called Jonathan (me).
While not bashing my head against the desk repeatedly at work, or traveling around Europe pretending to be clever, I write idiotic blog posts, and attempt to survive living in a house with four women, two cats, a hamster, and a number of fish.
I live in deepest, darkest England – land of good manners, punctuation, starched shirts, and silent indignation. I grew up near Oxford, and have ended up living in the countryside just outside London.
I like pizza (or anything easy to cook, really), wine, chocolate biscuits, tea, coffee, movies, music, and cycling. I am as as colour-blind as a hedgehog in a bag, but can draw a mean doodle. I listen to random music on Spotify, watch streaming TV shows on the internet, and wish I had more time and/or money to pursue a colossally nerdy interest in comic book artwork.
I take lots of photos – none of which are posted here. Many of them can be found at Instagram.
If you would like somebody to jump down the internet rabbit hole with, click the follow button, or send me a message – I love meeting new people, and love writing messages instead of getting on with what I should be doing.
Veteran journalist Joe Nocera’s neighbor in the Hamptons was a therapist named Ike. Ike counted celebrities and Manhattan elites as his patients. He’d host star-studded parties at his eccentric vacation house. But one summer, Joe discovered that Ike was gone and everything he’d thought he’d known about his neighbor -- and the house next door -- was wrong. From Wondery, the company behind Dirty John and Dr. Death, and Bloomberg, “The Shrink Next Door” is a story about power, control and turning to the wrong person for help for three decades. Written and hosted by Joe Nocera, a columnist for Bloomberg Opinion, “The Shrink Next Door” premieres on May 21st.
This looks interesting and it’s hard to go wrong with Nocera.

Exploring the Mysteries of the President’s Businesses
He’s the president, yet we’re still trying to answer basic questions about how his business works: what deals are happening, whom they’re happening with, and if the president and his family are keeping their promise to separate the Trump Organization from the Trump White House.
“Trump, Inc.” is a joint reporting project from WNYC Studios and ProPublica that digs deep into those questions. We’ll be laying out what we know, what we don’t and how you can help us fill in the gaps.
