A Resolution – “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.”

Charlie Brooker’s 2015 Wipe – “Writer and broadcaster Charlie Brooker is back for his annual review of the past 12 months. He takes a satirical look back at the news and cultural events of 2015, including the beginning of Corbyn-mania and a Tory majority, the end of Page Three, and Cecil the Lion. He also tackles the terrifying truth of 2015, as well as examining bizarre news stories, TV shows and general phenomena. Features special guests, including contributions by comedian Doug Stanhope and the ever insightful Philomena Cunk”

The last place on Earth without human noise – “And for now, it’s still possible to find forests, seashores or mountains where you can relax for 15 minutes or more completely free from the clatter of human existence. If you find one of these serene sweet spots, however, it might be best to keep it quietly to yourself.” This is an older article that got re-plugged by the BBC for some reason.

Everything Is Computation – “We will no longer aspire to teach our children the truth, because like us, they will never stop changing their minds. We will teach them how to productively change their minds, how to explore the never ending land of insight.” Josha Bach.

He is now dead, though the cause of his death has not been disclosed.”
