Hello from Green Bay, Wisconsin where I’m home visiting my family and going to a concert. It’s been an intense few weeks and so I have no column this week, but I wanted to share some of the things I’m reading this week as there’s been a lot. The UK introduced its online safety bill, a Brazilian judge ordered Telegram to shut down, but then the CEO wrote that they just hadn’t gotten the email (which to be honest I sort of believe because that kind of stuff happens all the time) and Ann Applebaum has a must-read about a topic I’ve been thinking a lot about - how we need a better plan to fight autocracy.
More stories below that I’ve been tracking this week as well. Next week I’ll be back with my regular programming.
