I’m taking the week off to work on other projects, so watch for some brand-new content next week. Meantime, make sure to check out updates to my “Scheming Democracy” post about Facebook and Cambridge Analytica—including reflections from one of my twitter pals, Evan Shapiro, who’s left FB for good with this sign-off message.

This Facebook story isn’t going away and has already resulted in the company losing nearly $50 billion in market cap since the Cambridge Analytica scandal erupted. I’ll continue to update the post and do follow pieces, too. Watch this space. 🔵
