Delete This When You’re Done: Snapchat and the Power of Deletion – This New Yorker article by Matt Buchanan on the future of privacy is thought provoking. With things like Google Glasses and Memoto that take videos and photos constantly of all your interactions (without the express permission of those whom you are recording), privacy is an illusion. Those coming of age in a Facebook generation know only the philosophy of “share more.” The only defense? Lying and impermanence. The New Yorker
11 Earth-Shattering Food Inventions that Will Change Your Life – I loved this list of innovative food products that help you keep up your technology addiction. I broke my iPhone screen once trying to juggle a Starbucks cup and the phone. THIS COULD HAVE SAVED MY LIFE. Foodbeast
The Most Hilarious ‘Game of Thrones’ Craigslist Sex Ad You’ll Ever Read – I’m not sure how we survived without Craigslist because without it we would not get gems like this person’s ad for “Robb Stark Look-alike.” This personal ad is by a 25 year old woman who wants to dress up as Daenerys Stormborn Tagaryen (and if I had to choose a GoT role play, it would definitely be the chick who is beloved by dragons) and wants a sexual encounter with Robb Stark.
“I ONLY want you to refer to yourself as Robb Stark. You will need to provide your own clothing. Please keep in mind that you will have recently participated in a battle and been thrown in a dungeon, so you will not be wearing your nicest furs. I’m looking for a Stark in the streets but a wilding in the sheets.”
I hope this sister found what she wanted. Surely in New Orleans there is someone who will meet her needs. The Daily Beast
