@janmikula We don’t have to invent an antitrust regime in a Twitter thread. This is a very well-documented and researched problem. Start with this book to understand its history and what remedies that have worked in the past.      источник
Hate, Inc. book cover
Hate, Inc.
Why Today’s Media Makes Us Despise One Another
Matt Taibbi - 2019-10-08
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the twisted reality of mainstream media with this turbocharged new book from celebrated journalist Matt Taibbi. Hate Inc. provides an insider's guide to the manipulative tactics used by the press to monetize anger, paranoia, and distrust. Taibbi's rich taxonomic survey of American political journalism's dirty tricks will be an invaluable antidote to the hidden poisons dished up by those we rely on to tell us what is happening in the world. Get ready for a Great Giza Pyramid Complex of invective and digital ugliness heading into the 2020 election season.
David Heinemeier Hansson
Apropos everything, you should read @mtaibbi's Hate Inc book for a good historical summary of media delusions, malpractice, and ill intent from the Iraq War through the financial crisis through Russiagate. Could scarcely be more relevant than right now.      источник
The Management Myth book cover
The Management Myth
Debunking Modern Business Philosophy
Matthew Stewart - 2009-08-10
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explores the history of management and offers a withering critique of pseudoscience in management theory, all while providing a clear explanation of why the MBA often amounts to BS. With humor and insight, this book takes readers on a romp through American business thought, illuminating the flaws in traditional management practices along the way.
David Heinemeier Hansson
This reminded me that I needed to recommend the fantastic book The Management Myth by Matthew Stewart. In it, you get the bullshit history of Scientific Management, along with an exposé on just the kind of fraud that its popularizer, F. Winslow Taylor.      источник
When Prophecy Fails book cover
When Prophecy Fails
Leon Festinger - 1964-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1956)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Exploring the fascinating behavior of individuals in social movements with specific, unfulfilled prophecies, this study sheds light on the psychological and societal impacts of failed predictions. Based on theoretical work and a chance discovery, the book offers a compelling examination of how people react when their beliefs are challenged.
David Heinemeier Hansson
The 1964 book When Prophecy Fails covers this phenomenon in detail: Once a person has been ensnared by a false in-group belief, disconfirmation in the form of facts or events, often lead to more fervent beliefs.      источник

The Road to Wigan Pier book cover
The Road to Wigan Pier
George Orwell - 2001-04-26 (впервые опубликовано в 1936)
Рейтинг Goodreads
This autobiographical novel from George Orwell depicts his struggles during a time when he was moving from city to city and had just left his job at a bookstore. The book provides an intimate depiction of this difficult period in Orwell's life, and includes a photo featuring the author prominently displayed at his former workplace.
David Heinemeier Hansson
Been reading Orwell’s Road to Wigan Pier, and it’s amazing how much of the abusive ideology revealed in his account of the miners is still present in today’s gig economy. Paying for your own equipment (lamps v cars), no compensation for travel (in mine v between passengers).      источник

The Divide book cover
The Divide
Global Inequality from Conquest to Free Markets
Jason Hickel - 2017-05-04
Рейтинг Goodreads
This thought-provoking book by Jason Hickel challenges the standard narrative surrounding poverty and inequality. Hickel argues that poverty is not simply a natural phenomenon, but a result of broader political forces at play. He proposes abolishing debt burdens in the global South, democratizing global governance, and rolling out an international minimum wage to bridge the divide between the rich and the poor. A must-read for anyone interested in global economic justice.
David Heinemeier Hansson
I implore you to read this book. It’s like opening your eyes after getting unplugged from the matrix. It’s bright and jarring at first, but you’ll want to know.      источник

Дурная кровь book cover
Дурная кровь
Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
John Carreyrou - 2018-05-21
Рейтинг Goodreads
В 2014 году компания "Теранос" была в числе знаменитых "единорогов" Кремниевой долины: ее стоимость стремительно росла и за несколько лет достигла отметки в девять с лишним миллиардов долларов. Разработка "Теранос" - уникальная технология анализов крови, которая быстро и надежно позволяла получить данные о сотнях заболеваний буквально по одной капле, - должна была вот-вот произвести революцию в здравоохранении. Но был один маленький нюанс - технология на самом деле не работала.
David Heinemeier Hansson
The book “Bad Blood”, about the Theranos fraud, is an indictment not just of Holmes and her co-conspirators, but Silicon Valley culture as a whole. All its worst stereotypes and tendencies animated by dislikable characters. Recommended reading!      источник
Зачем мы спим book cover
Зачем мы спим
Новая наука о сне и сновидениях
Matthew Walker - 2017-10-03
Рейтинг Goodreads
До недавних пор у науки не было полного представления о механизмах сна, о всем многообразии его благотворного влияния и о том, почему последствия хронического недосыпания пагубны для здоровья. Выдающийся невролог и ученый Мэттью Уолкер обобщает данные последних исследований феномена сна и приглашает к разговору на темы, связанные с одним из важнейших аспектов нашего существования.

1984 book cover
George Orwell - 2022-07-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1949)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Своеобразный антипод второй великой антиутопии XX века - "О дивный новый мир" Олдоса Хаксли. Что, в сущности, страшнее: доведенное до абсурда "общество потребления" - или доведенное до абсолюта "общество идеи"? По Оруэллу, нет и не может быть ничего ужаснее тотальной несвободы...

Процесс book cover
Franz Kafka - 2001-04-09 (впервые опубликовано в 1925)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Франц Кафка - один из крупнейших писателей ХХ века, самых читаемых и самых загадочных, "непостижимый мастер и повелитель царства немецкого языка" (Г. Гессе). Он создал неповторимую художественную вселенную - полуабсурдную, тоскливую и жуткую, завораживающую собственной уникальностью, вселенную, где герои переживают странные приключения, мучаясь в поисках ответа на свои призрачные вопросы... Предлагаем читателю знаменитый роман Кафки "Процесс", возможно наиболее ярко выражающий непостижимый характер творчества автора.
