Weekly Wrap-Up 04-16-2016

This week’s newsletter is here.

There’s always stuff that doesn’t make it into the newsletter. Here’s this week’s list:

The Dark Side Of Guardian Comments
It takes courage to commission such thorough, necessary research. As human beings, we must do better when speaking to each other online.

DMARC, or Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance, takes effect if an email fails certain types of authentication. And now they are targeting free email providers. So,  if you send an email using Mailchimp, Constant Contact, etc, and your “from” address includes @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, or any other free email provider it may now get bounced and never make it into the inbox of those on your mailing list.

Google’s $150 Photo Editing Software Is Now Free For Everyone

This Week’s Music*:
I have weekly playlists over on Spotify*. This week, though, it’s all Prince, who wasn’t a big fan of streaming services. So head on over to iTunes or Amazon or better yet your local music store and pick up copies of anything of The Artist’s you don’t already own. His latest album is on his website here. 

Some of my favorites:

  • Delirious – Prince (1982)
  • Little Red Corvette – Prince (1983)
  • I Would Die 4 U – Prince and The Revolution (1984)
  • Let’s Go Crazy – Prince And The Revolution (1984)
  • Shockadelica – Prince (1987)
  • Cream – Prince And The New Power Generation (1991)

*I believe in paying all artists for their work. Streaming music services allow for the discovery of new music, or reminders of great music I haven’t thought about in a while. I hope that if you hear something you like you’ll consider purchasing the song (or album) for your own collection.
