The Hoomanist's Weekly Digest is a short, curated, mindful, text-only list of links that you wish a friend would have shared with you—delivered via e-mail every weekend and published on this website the following Monday. You can subscribe now for free to get it earlier.

  • Yuval Noah Harari on how humans are hackable animals. And we better realize that now if we want to claim back our free will. →

  • When your smart doorbell thinks you’re Batman. →

  • I thought I heard enough Apple anecdotes and Steve Jobs mythology, but this oral history of Infinite Loop by Wired is intriguing. →

  • The Chinese digital score system is already making and breaking lives. →

  • Speaking of which, Google is showing zero ethics on human rights over there with their secret project Dragonfly. →

  • And to close with aesthetic beauty and a video: hoards of anonymous people react to a user-controlled character in an interactive world. →
