❶ All I’m looking for is the price of coffee
This newsletter is generally a great read, but this post felt like something you’d all enjoy. It loops around the idea that we are all judging places, and therefore ourselves by how much it costs to buy a cup of coffee, expanding out to what gentrification does to the concept of “value”. It’s good.
❷ A landscape of paranoia
Do you own a Ring (or other) security camera? The rise in at-home surveillance is about to enter new ground, with the idea expanded to vehicles. Ford are releasing a system for just this, and we should pause to think about it. We’re entering a realm where our property is treated like something that requires a “safety zone”, because everyone is a suspect and we need to protect our territory – the author intentionally uses war terminology in this piece, and I don’t think it’s an exaggeration.
