Duck Duck Go

Now that we all know we're living within a web of massive intelligence gathering, I thought it might be useful to post this article from Slate about Duck Duck Go, a search engine that doesn't track your data. Frankly, I don't know how much difference it makes at this point, since so much data has been swept up already. And what do we really know about Duck Duck Go's claims anyway? But for what it's worth, and just to mix things up a little, here is the Slate article.

On Drowning

By way of a public service announcement, I thought I would link to this commendable piece on Slate, Drowning Doesn't Look Like Drowning by Mario Vittone, because it tells us that our ideas of what drowning looks like are largely wrong, and more importantly, might keep us from noticing when drowning is actually happening.

If even one person gets saved because of the mass dissemination of this information, that will be incalculably wonderful.
