Noam Chomsky - The 5 Filters of the Mass Media Machine

quote [ According to American linguist and political activist, Noam Chomsky, media operate through 5 filters: ownership, advertising, the media elite, flak and the common enemy. ]

Got this from avid a while back. Sadly I never finished reading Manufacturing Consent, it's on my list to get back to. This is a great summary of the concepts though. And all the more relevant as we get deeper and deeper in the weeds.

TabFS

Out of the box, it supports Chrome and (to a lesser extent1) Firefox, on macOS and Linux.2

Each of your open tabs is mapped to a folder. ]

An interesting little tool. I don't have much use for it now, but it'll definitely be handy for some projects I have planned in the future.

quote [ This is a video about clicking cookies. ]

This is a post about an amusing video about clicking cookies.

Cookie Clicker is such a monstrous game. I don't think I unlocked half the crap they cover in the video.
