I’m not big on resolutions in the formal sense, but I do like the idea of using the new year to kick off some new things I’ve been meaning to do. A reset of sorts. One of those things I’ve been meaning to get better at, is reading more frequently.
My Instapaper account is jammed with saved essays and articles, and using Longreads and other great sources, I’m going to keep it loaded up in the year to come, with the aim to read one thing every morning.
That said, if you have other sources that I should be scouring for good content, please do share.
This morning’s read (if you care) was Anon on the run: How Commander X jumped bail and fled to Canada.
Doyon spent January 2012 plotting border crossing routes for hours using Google Earth, eventually settling on one that crossed from Washington state into British Columbia. Unlike his first, solo attempt, he had help this time in the form of “Op Xport”—an Anonymous/Occupy-run underground railroad. Doyon became “the package.” He put himself under the command of a manager who coordinated the ten people, four safe houses, and three drivers used to ferry Doyon from the Bay area north to Seattle.
I’ll tag my posts on these with “dailyread” should you care to follow along at home.
