Are you joining us for @AllossoDan's next book club iteration? We're going to be reading Thomas Piketty's newest book A Brief History of Equality. Details for joining can be found here:
@email@example.com I think you're correct in your optimism. The hiding issue is the massive acceleration of the dividing effect of algorithmic feeds that tend to radicalize people in the middle to the extremes. This is primarily courtesy of #SurveillanceCapitalism and not necessarily human nature. Prior generations' media tended toward the center, now it pushes us to the extremes.
A refback (remember those?!) today reminded me about this post: Non-technical IndieWeb: Fun, Creativity, Community, and “Content” https:/
I should try to add more on #creativity and #fun to my IndieWeb Collection https:/
@mollyjfarrell Thanks, I'd seen a 1734 date for another printing, but didn't find one for the first and suspected you'd have it. The fact that Franklin published this edition 14 years before The American Instructor underlines its continued value as he was a savvy printer.
@mollyjfarrell Excellent story & history! Surely John Tennent's pamphlet had appeared previous to 1734, as there's a copy labeled as the 3rd edition which Benjamin Franklin himself had reprinted that year?
