"White people and people of color alike long for racism to end," @DrIbram writes. "When we yearn for something to end—and don’t know what the end looks like—it is easy to make ourselves believe the end is near." https://t.co/yQvEBYVJjL

6/ What most of us want to know, coming out of the pandemic, is this, @katejulian writes: “Am I drinking too much? And: How much are other people drinking? And: Is alcohol actually that bad?” https://t.co/0Oekf5zYSW

5/ Kodak was arguably one of the great American companies, providing a beautiful story about middle-class aspiration. But to ache for Kodak’s past in Rochester, you have to indulge in some revisionist history, @kait_tiffany, who grew up there, reports: https://t.co/Tu3EhkKE6L

2/ Boris Johnson: populist, or just popular? Working in Britain's interest, or just his own? "I wanted to see up close if he truly was—as his enemies charge—the British equivalent of Donald Trump," @TomMcTague writes in this profile of the prime minister: https://t.co/k2fkwRyltp

As long as I've been writing about technology, friends and strangers have been asking me what they, personally, should do about Big Tech and its growing power. My answer has always been the same: Cancel your Amazon Prime account. https://t.co/mDHDpnKpjO

1. The news that Kickstarter is putting in place a four-day workweek (read @jpinsk! https://t.co/zjtDXGIn7O) has me thinking about why we have a five-day workweek to begin with.

Can Rochester survive the fall of Kodak? The company built the city, funded its institutions, and employed many of its residents. Now Rochester is seeking a new identity, and a future without film, @kait_tiffany reports. https://t.co/U8oz2HAxQ5

For me, the big question surfaced by this @DKThomp piece is whether gains in efficiency made possible by certain pandemic changes will actually see their benefits accrue to workers. Idk that US labor and economic policy really encourages that https://t.co/6RlPKJytgU
