1. Why is Type 1 diabetes rising?
2. Google will now systematically collect all your personal information across its entire platform. Ugh. It's hard for me to imagine extricating myself from their tentacles. I'm using their browser, their email, Blogger, Android, Reader, and Docs just right now.
3. Excellent Cory Doctorow essay on the coming war against general computing. I'm not sure if I'm quite as pessimistic as he is. A lot of his case rests on peripherals like 3D printing, which would be a lot easier to control than computers.
4. Powerful New Yorker piece on the America's prison hell.
5. Ryan Lizza on the Obama memos.
