  • Fri, 14 Aug 2020 05:00:03 +0000: How populism took over politics – podcasts of the week - Internet | The Guardian

    McMafia author Misha Glenny considers the Rise of the Iron Men. Plus: timely climate change drama Power Out

    Rise of the Iron Men (from 18 Aug)
    McMafia author Misha Glenny takes listeners on a riveting, cross-continental journey in his new Audible show, which joins the dots between everyone from Bolsonaro to Modi to Boris Johnson, to tell the story of how populist leaders have come to dominate global politics. He begins with Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, once a young liberal and protege of George Soros, now the leader of a staunchly nationalist, far right government. Intelligent, eye-opening, and totally brilliant. Hannah J Davies

    Three, it’s said, is a trend, and nowhere is that more evident than in the podcast world, where a trio of shows covering similar divisions in the US education system have emerged. As well as Nice White Parents from Serial Productions, Fiasco’s newest season (out now via Luminary) also looks at racial inequality in schooling, as does Nashville Public Radio’s The Promise, released on 31 Aug.

  • Thu, 13 Aug 2020 20:09:27 +0000: The Guardian is most trusted by its readers among UK newspapers, finds Ofcom - Internet | The Guardian

    Observer also scores highly but trust in social media is down, with Facebook coming bottom

    Research from media regulator Ofcom has rated the Guardian as the most trusted newspaper in the UK among regular readers.

    The regulator’s annual report into the British public’s media consumption also showed that fewer people are using Facebook, Twitter and Google as a source of news as social media suffers from an erosion in trust.

  • Thu, 13 Aug 2020 14:00:03 +0000: Ashley 'Dotty' Charles: 'Purveyors of hate have turned trolling into a business. We have the power to turn the tables' - Internet | The Guardian

    By refusing to breathe life into the peddlers of hate we can put them out of a job

    • Time to reset: more brilliant ideas to remake the world

    There’s a hot new profession on the rise with incredible career prospects, flexible working hours and the opportunity to work from home. A fast-paced job in a rapidly growing industry that can catapult you from pen-pusher to proprietor without a single second of overtime. What is this highly desirable position? I present to you the dastardly role of the outrage-monger.

    They are the purveyors of hate who have turned trolling into a business model; the intentionally racist and strategically classist bloggers, columnists and frequently reported Twitter accounts, triggering your impulses and eliciting your responses. Responses that provide that coveted currency of the social media age: engagement. So with every furious tweet or seething screenshot we do little but increase their stock value. But it is also we who have the power to turn the tables.

  • Wed, 12 Aug 2020 23:01:39 +0000: Bristol is worst UK city for broadband outages with 169 hours a year - Internet | The Guardian

    Cardiff is best, with only 1% of internet users losing service last year, finds Uswitch survey

    Almost five million consumers have suffered a broadband outage lasting more than three hours in the last year, with the average household losing a total of more than a day of internet time due to cutouts.

    Bristol has been named Britain’s “outage capital”, with homes that have been hit by outages suffering on average 169 hours a year of internet loss, which is equivalent to seven full days. The typical UK home that does experience outages is offline for 29 hours a year, according to a new report by Uswitch.com, the utility comparison site.

  • Wed, 12 Aug 2020 17:30:33 +0000: James Colley: the 10 funniest things I have ever seen (on the internet) - Internet | The Guardian

    We asked Australian comedians what makes them gurgle with joy online. For James Colley, it’s calamity, disaster and other small things

    To begin, I have to admit that it took every iota of willpower not to do a bit where I submitted a list of ten of my own tweets but I imagine the kind editors and readers of the Guardian absolutely do not want that. In the end, these are the pieces that I could guarantee would always pull me out of a foul mood and make me laugh out loud.

    This was an eye-opening experiment for me. I’d like to think of my comedic sensibilities as sophisticated, if a little gentle. Turns out that’s wrong. What really makes me laugh is calamity, disaster, rude words and incredible commitment to silliness. Here are the small things that amuse my small mind.
