A heads-up that the Grail is currently suspended from Twitter (due to their algorithm being dumb and auto-flagging something it shouldn’t have). Which is a good reminder that you shouldn’t rely on social media to see our stuff – instead, be sure to bookmark the Grail and visit regularly!

Thanks to Linda G., René B. and Josh E. for your generous support of the Grail!

Quote of the Day:

There’s only a handful of people at these companies who understand how these [algorithm] systems work, and even they don’t necessarily fully understand what’s going to happen with a particular piece of content. So as humans we’ve almost lost control over these systems. Because they’re controlling the information that we see, they’re controlling us more than we’re controlling them.
