Why I'm Giving Wikipedia 6 Bucks a Month

wired.com — I pay Weight Watchers $8 a month, just in case I decide to start dieting again. I haven't used it in a year, but cancelling my subscription would mean admitting defeat. I pay Hulu $7.99 a month for Hulu Plus even though it forces me to watch ads between my favorite shows.

What We Can Learn About Modern Medicine From The Knick

wired.com — If Clive Owen and Steven Soderbergh aren't enough of a reason for you to watch The Knick -hey, talented directors and charismatic actors aren't everyone's bag-then the rich detail with which the show portrays the evolution of medicine at the turn of the last century should be.

How Ebola Can Teach Us to Prepare for the Next Great Pandemic

wired.com — The rapid increase of Ebola and MERS point toward the need to be vigilant, to anticipate, and to prepare for the next outbreak. While we don't know what or when, we do know one thing: there will be another disease outbreak, posing a threat to both health and economy.

WIRED Binge-Watching Guide: Justified

wired.com — Don't listen to anyone who tells you Justified is just a cop show. First of all, Raylan Givens is a not a cop. As he likes to point out, he's a Deputy US Marshal, which means he doesn't have to care about piddling little crimes like drugs or theft.

Uber Learned the Hard Way: Transparency Rules the Sharing Economy

wired.com — Uber's much-loathed surge-pricing policy has prompted accusations of price gouging, market manipulation and worse. And all of it despite its best efforts to explain the policy. This is far more vitriol than you'd expect from a simple price increase, but makes more sense when you recognize how much consumers hate opacity and unpredictability.

You Should Have a Say in Your Robot Car’s Code of Ethics

wired.com — Recently, writing in WIRED, ethicist Patrick Lin argued that building a programmable ethics button into future autonomous cars is not the right approach to dealing with the moral nuance of this new technology. But isn't a car that ignores your moral choices worse?

A/B Test: Drug Overdose Treatments

wired.com — Leon Steele Every 27 minutes, someone in the US dies of an opioid overdose. And all of those 19,500 annual deaths-whether from prescription pain meds or heroin-could be prevented with the fast-acting antidote naloxone. It adheres to the same brain receptors that opioids latch on to, pushing the dangerous drugs aside in five minutes or...

‘Humans of New York’ Is Suddenly a War Report From Iraq

wired.com — My favorite thing on the Internet might be your favorite thing, too. As of right now 8.8 million people "like" it on Facebook. Humans of New York, the photo blog and Facebook page run by Brandon Stanton, is a bulwark of hope in what sometimes feels like an onslaught of despair.

Google Can’t Forget You, But It Should Make You Hard to Find

wired.com — "The Right to Be Forgotten" sounds catchy. And, yes, the language of "erasure" laws and "disappearing" messages is captivating. Unfortunately, these popular words are fatally inaccurate in the privacy context. As a result, critics risk tackling irrelevant arguments about unattainable perfection while advocates and consumers are invited to place their hopes in a technology that is doomed never to be fully successful.

The Troubling Truth of Why It’s Still So Hard to Share Files Directly

wired.com — It's not always easy to spot the compromises in the technology we use, where we've allowed corporate interests to trump public ideals like privacy and press freedom. But sometimes new developments can cast those uneasy bargains into relief-and show that the public may not have even been at the table when they were made.
