Copyright law is a complicated and messy thing that even lawyers and courts struggle with (I suggest reading the archives of this copyright newsletter if you're curious to get a taste!), and /r/jailbreak's rule #1 tries to draw a reasonable line out of that mess - interestingly, there's actually no simple binary here. I'm pretty busy today with moderating Snapchat discussions, but I'll try to explain...partly because I really enjoy thinking about the complications of copyright and trying to help explain them.
To address torrent clients: the torrent clients on the default repositories are neutral tools that have the exact same support for any kind of content, legitimate or illegitimate, and their marketing and features do not encourage use for piracy. It's legal for that kind of tool to exist. The default repositories allow them.
That's different from a standard app piracy tool, which is marketed for piracy and specifically supports pirated material. Sometimes people consider use for free apps to not be piracy, but that's still copyright infringement (since those apps are being redistributed without permission from the developers) and involves cracking DRM (since even free App Store apps have DRM), which is additionally prohibited by the DMCA.
Adblockers don't involve copyright infringement, and they seem to be probably legal and not considered fraud, which is why the default repositories allow them.
It's good to note that rule #1 isn't about revenue loss. There are tons of forms of revenue loss that nearly everyone considers legal, such as publishing a competing product, and copyright infringement of a free app often doesn't involve revenue loss. Rule #1 is about copyright and to some degree about related forms of fraud.
Edit: I updated the [long-form explanation of the rule](/r/jailbreak/wiki/faq) to include some of these details for clarity.
My liberal friends in DC are pretty shellshocked. I live in a very mixed area in Florida and there's an unspoken agreement not to talk politics with people outside the privacy of your home and only with those with whom you agree.
One of the things I've done is to disconnect from the news except in one way: a friend of mine has a daily email that gives a high level summary of a single new thing that happened that day, a single thing that's still happening, a thing to think about, a thing to do, and something that made her laugh. Everything is reputable sourced and while it's from the liberal perspective, she doesn't insult or resort to bad language.
Also, my family is Jewish. We lost people in the Holocaust. My parents and husband are--for the first time--paying serious attention to the news. I can't help but be happy about that even though I'm not happy as to why.

My favorite newsletter in the city right now is this --> http://tinyletter.com/eatthatreadthis
It basically sums up all the news into one email! It's an easy / quick read. It includes a lot of what is happening in Pittsburgh.
Thanks for asking! I used a tool called Read-o-meter, which calculates text based on the average reading speed of 200 words per minute.
It's a handy tool that I use every week, while compiling longread recommendations for my email newsletter.

Not a blog, but I like getting Anne Helen Petersen's newsletter every week or two: http://tinyletter.com/annehelenpetersen Recommended if you enjoy her celebrity and political writing at Buzzfeed (and previously The Hairpin).
If you were in their shoes, would you want the people to know that there might be irreversible catastrophic climate change in their lifetime, or would you want them to stay productive like good little worker bees?
If anything major happened, these are the types that would be in an underground bunker complaining about how they have to ration their wine to a half bottle a day.
I promise you, half the deniers in leadership positions know wtf is going on. Removing web pages is just to reduce visibility. When you have your climate scientists using phrases like "we're f***ed", at some point it's just climate liars, not deniers.

Secondo me, non ha preso spunto da r/italy.
This isn't my usual r/@ account as this one is tied directly to my real identity.
I started a weekly newsletter for some of friends because I got tired of hearing how great everything is in the world and how tech and tech saviors like Musk will fix everything that's wrong. The email does a quick summary of all the shitty things that happen every week broken down into General, Climate/Environment, Business/Economy, and Tech/Privacy. It's not super radical (as it's designed to open liberal eyes), but it definitely primes people for suggestions that the current system is broke as fuck.
Anyway, here's the sign-up link if you want to sign up or check out the archives. I only send once a week and promise I won't spam/use your emails for anything haha (but maybe use a throwaway and forward it to your real email if you're feeling especially paranoid).
Also, just colored this new video for Jidenna (also did Classic Man for him). I really love working with all the people at Wondaland (Janelle especially) and the director (Alan Ferguson). While Jidenna has the weakest messages of the group, they're all really aware of what's up and privately radical as hell.
I would, but i just deleted it about a day ago. Whoops.
Edit: This isn't the actual email, but this is what was in the email I got.
I'll be resubmitting this on the weekend so more people can see it.

I second Two Bossy Dames! Also, for anyone who likes fanfiction, The Rec Center is really fun. They link to really interesting articles about fandom/fanfiction, and they recommend fanfiction from a lot of different fandoms.
My main source of Pittsburgh news now that I don't check twitter as often is the Eat That Read This newsletter. It's a daily newsletter sent around lunch time that does a great job of mixing important news, entertaining fluff and humor. The editor definitely has a liberal slant so if you're not feeling that you may want to skip it. Thanks to ETRT I can never read about Corbett without thinking of him as Governor Derp.
Wait what am I talking about, my main source is actually /r/Pittsburgh.
Thank you for the kind words. I'm the guy that made this project and Chicago Patterns.
Would love to hear feedback on the site. The long term goal is a comprehensive guide to all interesting buildings and architecture styles in the city, though it will take a while to get there.

It's on his list of shows that didn't make the list but which he has high hopes for.
> This, on the other hand, won't be back until 2018, most likely -- and I have no idea what to hope for come season two. So much of what people embraced about the series was playing the game side of it, trying to figure out what was happening before the series revealed its cards. And, of course, with the conclusion of season one, it sure seems like that aspect of the show is over now. If it is, I'd say it's not a moment too soon. The series has always been interesting to me, but it's only been fitfully gripping. It feels too cool and calculated, too smooth and sealed off. Yet the last 45 minutes of the finale were so audacious and shot through with passion and blood that I find myself hoping, all the same, that season two will ditch the mind games and just tell a story of what happens when the oppressed try to overthrow their oppressors. It should be a high-wire act either way.
I've got a collapse related newsletter I send out every week. You might find it helpful, though it does tend to be US centric as I use it to make US friends more aware of collapse related material.
Post Archives and Registration Link.
FYI, this isn't my regular collapse account, but this the account I use for things that can easily track back to my actual name.
A couple of people in the newsletter mad the comment "dudebro," which is not the first time I've seen it. This one bothers me the most because I highly doubt dudebro music would feature two guys kissing in a music video or be so open with their sexuality as RHCP is. Honestly, the criticism at its base level is valid, but overblown. Kind of like the Radiohead is boring joke, but that one's like "ha ha they're amazing" whereas RHCP is "ha ha fuck them."
As I said above, Inside Of Emptiness is my favorite, but right behind it is Shadows and Empyrean, both of which are monumental releases. "Unreachable" is just immense.

It's probably less of a factor when you're recruiting new grads, more when you're trying to recruit senior people. Matthew Yglesias on the shortage of people who both have experience and are willing to put in long hours.
I'm thinking in particular of a top-notch senior engineer we tried to bring over from Melbourne. He and his wife were totally on board, right up to the point where they arrived and started looking at houses. They already knew Vancouver prices were high, they just didn't realize just how high that was.
I remember when I moved from Edmonton back to Vancouver. In Vancouver there was a lot of complaining about how our salaries weren't as high as US salaries (this is when the Canadian dollar was low, back in the 1990s). In Edmonton, nobody cared; with a typical engineering salary, it was easy to afford a house, probably even on one income. Not in Vancouver.
The critical-mass thing matters too, but that's true for any city that's trying to build itself up as a tech centre.

h/t to the Data is Plural newsletter (run by a friend of mine):
(the actual newsletter text contains links to the relevant stories; I'm too lazy to reformat it for the blockquote below)
> Pretrial inmates. Connecticut has begun publishing a daily census of every inmate held in jail while awaiting trial. Starting July 1, the database contains one row per inmate per day; each row includes basic demographic data (age, gender, race), as well as the inmate’s bond amount, main offense, and jail location. Read more at: The New Haven Independent and TrendCT. Question: This release seems unprecedented; does any other state or country publish such detailed data on pretrial inmates? [h/t Camille Seaberry]
> Why risk it? Why not just delay til the point of no return?
Matthew Yglesias argues that the Liberals should proceed:
> ... many people thought that reform would happen in the event of a minority government lead by either party. But instead the Liberals won an unexpected majority of seats in parliament with only about 40 percent of the popular vote. So lots of people wonder if Trudeau will really go for it now that his party is on the winning side.
> I think there's a pretty strong case for thinking non-cynically about this. If you look over at the United Kingdom which has a similarly messy party system you see that through the Tony Blair elections, first past the post effects tended to help Labour. In 2005, for example, they won a majority of seats on just 35 percent of the vote. But FPTP only helps you until it stops helping. Back in 2010, vote totals really seemed like they ought to have delivered a coalition between Labour and the Liberal Democrats. But due to FPTP effects even though those two parties combined for 52 percent of the vote they didn't have a majority of seats. Forming a coalition would have required complicated reliance on several small separatist parties, and the Liberal leader decided that would be illegitimate so he formed a coalition with the Conservatives.
> That ended up being disastrous for both the Lib Dems and Labour and in retrospect, New Labour should have changed the voting system when they had the chance.
> Which is just to say that life is unpredictable. And FPTP effects simply mean that the unpredictable ups and downs of politics lead to bigger swings in fortune than could otherwise be the case. If you think it's a bad system on the merits, you should change it and trust that the cynical aspects even out over time.
Thanks! Honestly, it's not my favorite (Inside Of Emptiness is), but it's not far behind and is the absolute quintessential Frusciante record.
If you like this issue/concept, I'd love if you could subscribe and tell your friends. Free issues every Monday with a bunch of different artists/styles:
Thinking about likely outcomes:
Incremental changes: mandatory voting plus instant runoff, as in Australia.
MMP, as in New Zealand.
No change. MMP is put to a referendum, referendum fails. We've seen this before in BC and Ontario.
I think there's a good chance of MMP being implemented. It'd be a significant risk, but as we saw during the campaign, Trudeau's willing to take risks; and a large number of his supporters are expecting some form of proportional representation. What's more, with the past nine years of the Harper government still on people's minds, public support for PR may be somewhat higher than usual, as a way of preventing future ideological lurches to right or left.
Pundits are saying that with a majority, Trudeau's incentive is to keep the current system. But as Matthew Yglesias points out, that's only true until the next time the CPC gets a majority.
I think the biggest obstacle would be a referendum. (Referendums always fail: no matter what the question is, Canadians always say no.) But the Liberals haven't promised a referendum, only legislation based on the recommendations of an all-party committee.
Even without a referendum, public opinion will still be a hurdle. If MMP advocates can't convince public opinion (as measured in polls) that MMP is workable, we'll probably get (1) instead of (2). So MMP advocates should be out there in the media right now, pushing a concrete plan.

And actually, I was born in Singapore! Raised there for the first 10 years of my life. I knew caning kids wasn't a thing here in the US, but only recently I did I learn that it's really, really, really frowned upon here. So yeah, I now agree I shouldn't go with physical punishment as a plot point, but keep the morally ambiguous parent/child relationship somehow.
. . .
> Is that the cameras are on 24/7, yet George is apologizing to Poppy anyway - how can he do that?
In the newsletter, I suggested a story idea that "Privacy is only allowed for politicians. The higher up you are, the more privacy you get." This is certainly a far more natural extension of the current situation in the US than corporal punishment.
Private lives are public... and public offices are private.
> If parents don't hurt their children then they shouldn't mind cameras in their homes, right? It's for the children, all to protect the children, that's why the government is watching the children sleep...
This is actually really brilliant and really creepy. I love it.
> a transition from 'keeping yourself in front of cameras' to 'using the system as it's ideally meant to be used'.
One piece of good news in surveillance I've heard recently is police departments requiring their cops to wear cameras. And this has been effective in reducing police violence & brutality! So that's the kind of ironic inversion I think the game's ending could go for -- making the watchers the ones who are now watched.
There’s a growing scene for email newsletters coming back. I subscribe to a couple that I enjoy like Tedium and Arcade Press .
While I dig the aesthetic you’ve done with please also do a text / HTML version as well for two main reasons. First being accessibility. There are many humans who depend on screen readers or the ability to enlarge or alter the colour of text to be able to read content, which of course can’t be done with a static image. The second is more self-serving 😉 I use Instapaper / Pocket for most of my newsletters. I can forward the newsletter emails to them and they rack up like a podcast list of things to read, and like our accessibility-dependent friends they work with text based content.
For how to actively distribute the newsletters if you go the email route there’s several services (unless you’re cool with just whacking everyone’s email into a BCC list and sending manually, of course) you might find Tiny Letter useful. It’s 100% free and intended for exactly this sort of content and handles important things like unsubscribe functionality. That said is does seem to require a postal address that it will include in the footer of letters sent which feels like an overexposure to me, so check around maybe for similar services.
From some quick Google-Fu, just this: http://tinyletter.com/onesmallthing/letters/beyond-the-safety-pin-with-femfreq-s-anita-sarkeesian
>YOU GUYS. Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency was kind enough to answer a few questions for me by email.
Nor does this appear on Anita's Twitter page. The only connection I can see between the two was that the author got an email interview from Anita last Nov: http://tinyletter.com/onesmallthing/letters/beyond-the-safety-pin-with-femfreq-s-anita-sarkeesian

I have a question -- why is Ryan Grim,
Washington bureau chief for The Huffington Post listed as the petition maker for BOTH Ellison and Buttigieg's petitions, why is his personal newsletter BAD NEWS listed as the organization sponsoring this "contest", and is this whole thing nothing more than a publicity stunt for Grim's homemade newsletter, which apparently has been sitting completely dormant for a year and a half?
Why are we caring about this? Why do we think anyone except Grim cares about spurring on this little competition?
Has Sander's office (or Ellison's) even acknowledged that they think this is a worthy event for supporters to rally behind?
Or are we getting used here?
Isn't THIS PETITION by Our Revolution the one we should be rallying behind? Doesn't it look bad if people are signing both?
It's goal is one million signatures, much more than this one's goal of 6,400.
You can sign up at http://tinyletter.com/readthinkdo (note that sometimes the confirmation/letters get caught up in spam :/). Fair warning- it's book and article recommendations but with a bit of a feminism/political angle. I send it out roughly once a week.

There are a couple decent newsletters like The Podcast Broadcast and Adolescence is a marketing tool. NPR also has a solid discovery tool at earbud.fm.
The inaugural edition of Cat Vincent's new email newsletter touches on this topic. I especially enjoyed his quote from Warren Ellis's newsletter.
That said, it is a real issue. Look at most 19th century ethnology and philology for stark examples of the pitfalls. To me it's a question of (potentially hidden) conceit. Are you genuinely interested in what a culture/creed/practice has to offer you, or are you actually looking for what you can take from it -- how it validates or justifies your pre-existing outlook, habits, or beliefs? This is probably not a question that can simply be answered. The latter will always be the case, to some extent, no matter the source, and the path of self-discovery and spiritual development necessarily involves some brutal honesty in recognizing one's conditions, conceits, and privilege.
All that said, exploring unfamiliar cultures is a great way to raise the questions that facilitate that path. We just need to make sure we regularly revisit whether we are doing so respectfully, with open eyes and mind.
My recommendation is to go with Tiny Letter, a bare-boned newsletter service without all the unnecessary click-tracking etc features. Best of all, it's free. To quote their tagline, "TinyLetter offers a clean and straightforward writing experience for people who aren't looking for advanced reporting or features for businesses."

> The South would crumble, just as it did in the 1860's.
Not sure about your question, but this reminds me of something I read earlier today. That the South lost because the powers who ran it cared more about slavery than Southern independence. If it were the latter they would have fled to the hills and fought a guerrilla war. But that would have meant losing the slaves and the big plantation land and such. Instead they surrendered, kept the land, and though slavery ended other systems that recreated much of it stuck around. THere's some info here - my understanding is they'd have all sorts of laws to make black people into criminals, then convict them and sentence them to hard labor on the same plantations as before, which the 13th amendment allows.
Anyway, in a fight today, maybe a guerilla war and insurgents would keep the South going, but that stuff didn't happen in the 1860s.
To be fair, even some of the most thoughtful minds in our industry aren't entirely sure what the word "geodatabase" means exactly.
Wow. I just published a post about this yesterday. Also, this week's developers and depression newsletter was on this topic with another developer's story and links to a couple resources.

We liked this comment so much that we linked to it in our newsletter this week: http://tinyletter.com/twothings/letters/shoes-like-pottery-and-a-synth-in-your-pocket
Honestly, thank you for taking the time to really break this down for us. One of the better comments we've ever gotten.
http://tinyletter.com, owned by MailChimp, is even simpler to use than MailChimp and allows up to 5,000 subscribers to MailChimp's 2,000. You should be able to create a hyperlink in your books that goes directly to your TinyLetter sign-up page. You can do a Google search to compare the two as well with an entry of "tinyletter vs mailchimp" without the quotes.
Thank you for this post, first of all. This question is so simple, yet carry such gravitas, that it's hard to find the right response.
I emigrated from Hong Kong when I was ten, I've always lived in San Francisco, I came out fifteen years ago. All of this should elude to this idea that I should be doing great, accepted myself, and pretty much living fabulously in the gay mecca of the world known for its diversity and open-mindedness.
But I'm not doing great, and it's not because I'm sad or it's purely a racial or a sexuality thing. It's because of a little bit of everything. A lot comes from my personal insecurity, sure, but some of it also comes from the lgbt community, including the "gaysian" community. I don't want to push blame onto anyone but myself, but it's equally hard to pretend my chance of love and support is exactly the same as someone who doesn't have to wear my shoes. Again, it's hard to find the right response.
PS: As a side note, I'm currently working on a personal writing/audio project called Ingredients of Fear where I write about everything that I'm beating myself over//holding back inside. And being Asian + gay is a piece I'm finishing up on, ready to go live in 2 weeks. IF you are interested, you can learn more about here, or I can send you a PM when it's live. (You can also sign up for my newsletter, but I don't want to sell you on it until you check it out.)
1) Wait, this is not an easy question. There are so many, and I'm bound to leave several hundred out. But some of the names on it: Yo La Tengo, Fennesz, Nick Drake, Kanye, Clams Casino, Dntel, Mia Doi Todd, Fugazi, The Microphones, M83, Gold Panda, Asha Bhosle, Portishead, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada…ok, I'm arbitrarily stopping there.
2) I'm currently listening to Nils Frahm. I find a lot of new music through friends. We have a Google Doc where we keep a running list of our purchases from week to week. I also started this newsletter: http://tinyletter.com/songexploder, where I get to ask people about their favorite songs and then tell people about my favorite songs. Sign up and let me know what you think.
3) I want to come to Australia, and I hope to someday. Hopefully.
Thanks a lot!

This post on her blog about the process of writing this article (and writing "star studies" in general) is really interesting.
>I wish I could remember where I read this, but someone made the point that one of J.J. Abrams' biggest strengths as a producer is that he's very good at casting his TV shows.
At the risk of self-indulgence in replying to my own comment, I finally found the article that made this point:
>But if you nail the casting from day one? That often turns a promising show into a sensation. And the showrunners who are really good at casting also tend to be the showrunners who have the most commercial success. For example, Joss Whedon is good at finding actors within a very particular range, but that range doesn't tend to cross over into "big hit" status. J.J. Abrams, by contrast, is really great at letting his writing suit a wide variety of acting types, and he tends to assemble more obviously well-cast ensembles. I think the Firefly cast is phenomenal, but you only need compare them to the similarly sized cast of Alias to see which showrunner has a stronger handle on finding actors who will be compelling to the largest number of people possible, as quickly as possible.
The Abrams-specific point was a bit more nuanced than I had remembered. At a minimum, I'm reassured that I didn't simply imagine such an article in the first place.
I used to blog, but then fell out of love with it. I just write tiny letters now which is easier on my anxiety. People will occasionally email or tweet me to say they enjoyed it, which I find more helpful and more thought out than blog comments. TinyLetter here
i hear you. start out doing what you're passionate about and just do it because you enjoy it.
if the writing route seems appealing to you, start a newsletter at tinyletter or a blog at medium. pitch the sites who report on gaming news. start getting clips together and put together a portfolio. eventually if you have enough in the way of readers / articles, you can credibly start applying for jobs in social media or content at companies you think are cool. in addition to looking at publications, also look at the blogs of gaming companies you think are cool and pitch for them.
think about what stories you think are cool, what not enough people talk about, who folks might want to read about. if you've got writers who you like, hit 'em up and get acquainted. start to build a network.
