👀 The secret curating algorithm behind Evgeny Morozov's The Syllabus is revealed to be a Google spreadsheet.
@air_pump me when i get Morozov's weekly syllabus
@entreprecariat @air_pump that feel when you get the most precise selection of high quality stuff and you still don't have the time to read it through
@rra @air_pump in like 4 languages that you don't even speak
@rra @air_pump btw did you read the piece on De Correspondent*? I find it so uncanny that they are doing this in South Italy
@entreprecariat @air_pump I read it indeed. Also a weir promotional piece somehow. I'm not too surprised about the italian house, last I know is that his partner is Francesca Bria
@rra @air_pump my fav part is when he says: oh I take vacations too!
@entreprecariat @air_pump silicon valley has the garage origin story, the european ethical-tech-industrial-complex has the italian countryside villa origin story
@entreprecariat @rra thanks for that piece, hadn't seen it.
'Morozov, the most prominent critic of Silicon Valley, has started an online service with a mission as megalomaniacal as many tech companies.' sums up some of my feeling.
@entreprecariat @rra ah so the Algorithm is actually an ML model of Morozov's own mind.
