Can you recommend some articles/books on social anthropology to read online?

Absolute staple: Bourdieu’sThe Forms of Capital

Maus’s The Gift is a staple on economics. He talks about reciprocity, gifting, and obligation.

Geertz:
Interpretation of Cultures
"Thick Description"

 Abu Lughod:
"Do Muslim Women Really Need Saving?"
Writing Against Culture

Levi Strauss

Foucault:
Madness and Civilization
Archaeology of Knowledge

Thank you for asking this! I will update this as more people suggest other links!

Computer Science Unplugged

alexainslie:

“Rather than talking about chips and disks and ROM and RAM,” write the authors of an early guide to Computer Science Unplugged, “we want to convey a feeling for the real building blocks of computer science: how to represent information in a computer, how to make computers do things with information, how to make them work efficiently and reliably, how to make them so that people can use them.”

white-washing of a continuation of structural inequity.

Building Stories

Chris Ware

Just wanted to write something about Chris Ware’s Building Stories. What an astonishing achievement. I feel as though Ware has assembled a new phrasing style. He’s doing his thing – it’s definitely his voice – yet he is “phrasing” notes and chords in a new way that reminds me of the way, say, Ellington changed over his career. Retaining that “big sound” regardless of the size of the band.

Orderly Processions are Over

simonterry:

Hierarchy likes order. Networks manage complexity.
Hierarchy walks in an orderly procession. Networks hustle.
Hierarchy wants projects to go from a through to z. Networks experiment across the alphabet.
Hierarchy wants a clean status. Networks solve for problems & mess.

It’s dubious and dangerous, Drucker is saying, to take what’s measurable for what’s important. But he’s also saying something much more radical, even subversive: Some things that can be measured shouldn’t be.

- "Taking Measurement’s Measure" - Nick Carr (via shoutsandmumbles)

The first piece of advice I have for people if they want to be a crazy artist like me is that companies are there to exploit you, and to extract as much labor out of you as possible while paying you as little money as possible. Always treat companies with intense cynicism and try to exploit them back as much as you can. The big mistake that will fuck you over in life is being a team player, because you’ll waste years and years of your life until you wake up one day having made some company a lot of money and having made yourself shit….they will just take your hard work and talent to make money for themselves and discard you when you’re no longer useful. So be very cynical.

Since I’ve started posting low poly models I’ve been asked a lot about how I make them. Hopefully this video will clear things up! The first half has me explaining techniques and the second is a 2000x speed recording of me making a more complex model (real time: 5 hours)

Why do I check Twitter before bed? It only makes me angry.

Sigh. Police can’t police themselves.

Atlantic City police now have body cameras

This illustration is an interesting take on the symbol of authority also being the technology of accountability.
