Weekly Links & Thoughts #176

Here is this week’s issue of meshedsociety.com weekly, loaded with interesting analyses and essays, significant yet under-reported information bits as well as thoughtful opinion pieces from the digital and technology world. Usually published every Wednesday/Thursday (CET),  just in time so you have something good to read over the weekend.

It’s summer in Europe, and I try to take things a bit more easy. Thus this issue comes later than usual (or outside of the regular schedule, if you want to express it that way). The next issue can be expected around Thursday July 19.
