That’s not only because we’re interacting more in person. Zoom helped tame Zoom-bombing partly by making its product more difficult for you (and for online harassers) to use. Essentially, the company traded some of your convenience for your safety. I have tips at the end of this article for how you can further beef up your protections from Zoom-bombing.

Internet Archive—the non-profit digital library that houses millions of books—is an indispensable resource, not least because so many of the titles it holds can’t be easily found IRL. But ..read more

Lifehacker: “Our personal data shows up in so many public online spaces.
