Morning Coffee – 18 May 2020
Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.
- Why it’s so hard to read right now. (It’s not just you.)
- Surprisingly, this list of the most mis-pronounced words in tech does not include blockchain, which should correctly be pronounced as "con".
- A class-action lawsuit has been filed over college students being forced to buy expensive digital textbooks under universities’s "inclusive access" programs. I do not see how this can possibly succeed; it’s like suing over being forced to pay tuition.
- On the origin of blurb.
- A recent survey found that time spent reading has almost doubled during the lockdown.
