We have covered this topic a few times before but it bears repeating. The solutions that technology gives to social problems rarely solve them and usually come with unforseen consequences. Let's look at the current brouhaha around PB as a case in point. For starters PB has never had an account on @news (which is done here). Additionally Drupal gives @news the option to "write in" a username which PB and many other users take advantage of as a way to have conversations over time.

Anarchist discourse--is there more than conversation?
Animal Theory by Derek Ryan--how to ignore everything that counts.
Urban air worsening everywhere. Weather getting more "freakish," murders by cops, murder-suicides this week. Data replaces reality, silent headphones, an app for break-ups. Coloring books for the stressed-out. Blocks beat e-toys for learning.
Resistance briefs, two calls.

an anonymous translation is now available of a book from Spain - a book which was used as evidence in trials against arrested anarchists as proof of their criminality... please help distribute and promote it if you find it useful!
here's an article about the events from http://en.contrainfo.espiv.net/2014/12/27/spanish-state-operation-pandor...
New years in Southern Ontario wouldn't be complete without a festive expression of our rage against prisons and the world which requires them. For the seventh year running, we brought the party to several local institutions of control and isolation, in order to show those trapped inside for the holidays that they aren't alone.
"We love to party and celebrate on New Year’s and this tradition has allowed us to do so in a spirit of antagonism and solidarity. We can have fun in a way that actually inspires us and that brings some joy to people who are locked up. Connecting through the walls with prisoners is a direct action against the alienation and separation that prison creates and it transforms the urban space, bringing in to focus the prisons that dot the landscape and making vivid the coercive violence of the state that controls our lives. Prison impacts us every day, whether or not we’re locked up, and the New Year’s Noise Demos make this conflict tangible."
'A Resolution' looks back on the crisis and confusion of 2015: climate change-driven wildfires, droughts, and storms; ISIS and their attacks in Paris, Beirut, and Ankara; bankrupt political leaders at COP21 debating how fast to kill the world; and an ever growing number of people murdered by police across American cities. As times grow darker, as despair and hopelessness grow in tandem with stupidity and horror, people everywhere are searching for vision and direction.
