Why does Ajit Pai hate us so much?
By Daveslist • Issue #49
Happy Saturday, y'all! We’ve got a great issue this week. We’re covering the crypto-anarchists working behind the scenes to usher in a brave new world, the FCC’s latest attack on privacy, and Patton Oswalt’s return to the stage following his wife’s tragic sudden death.
Let’s get it on…

If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.

Forget far-right populism – crypto-anarchists are the new masters
Definitely the must read of the week. It’s a long one, but it will help prepare you for what is becoming more inevitable by the day. A century from now there will be no governments, no borders, no central authorities. In their place will be the technologies of individual empowerment being built today by rogue geniuses on the digital peripheries of society.
Dogs’ innate sense of fairness being eroded by humans, study suggests
OK, dogs are better than humans. No surprise there. But it turns out we might be turning our dogs into jerks like us. 
The Quiet Master of Cryptocurrency — Nick Szabo
I’m not sure I’ve ever recommended a podcast on Daveslist before (I probably have), but this one is especially good if you want to do a deep dive on Bitcoin specifically, and orthogonal thinking in general. I can only think of a couple occasions when I’ve restarted a podcast from the beginning immediately after finishing it, but I did for this one.
Patton Oswalt Is Ready to Perform the Most Intense Set of His Life
Patton Oswalt is a comic genius, but it’ll take every ounce of his talent to find the humor in the unexpected death of his wife and the year he’s had to adjust to being a single dad. As morbid as it sounds, I’m looking forward to watching the attempt.
Autonomous cars (no human backup) may hit the road next year
I can’t believe France is going to beat us to the punch on autonomous cars. A pilot program is being launched in Rouen next year. 
FCC Considering Nightmare Rules That Allow Telemarketers to Go Straight to Voicemail
Why does Ajit Pai hate us so much? From giving ISPs permission to sell our personal data, to the war on Net Neutrality, to this travesty. Now he’s going to let telemarketers rape your voicemail. What did we ever do to this guy?
Apple 'Planet of the Apps' ad says developer rarely saw his kids
Apple hit a really tone deaf note with this tweet promoting its new show about app developers. It didn’t take Twitter long to let Tim Cook and Co. know how they felt about promoting workaholism over family. Apple has since deleted the tweet, but the Internet is forever.
NSA Leaker Outed Thanks to Modern Printer Technology
Did you know your printer was keeping tabs on you? Neither did Reality Winner when she leaked classified documents to the press. Here’s one of the traps built into your tech that you probably never knew about.
The history of weekends show they are a lie created by capitalism
The history of the weekend is pretty fascinating. I can’t help wondering about the 5:2 ratio, though. Who came up with that? Why not 4:3? Or, even better, 3:4?
Monster wave measured in Southern Ocean
Woah. There are very few vessels sailing on any ocean that a 64-foot wave wouldn’t decimate. Any time I’ve considered sailing the Southern Ocean (usually after a bit too much rum at the yacht club), I think about monsters like this out there and put it out of my mind.
