Control is not discipline

Via Anne Galloway: “Control is not discipline. You do not confine people with a highway. But by making highways, you multiply the means of control. I am not saying this is the only aim of highways, but people can travel infinitely and ‘freely’ without being confined while being perfectly controlled. That is our future.”

Awesome quote, it made me think. So so-called “freedom” can be used to impose control. Made me think of travelguides.

Fascinating: “The approach taken at Facebook is to set a cookie on user update requests that will redirect all subsequent requests from that user to the West coast master for some configurable time period to ensure that read operations do not return inconsistent results.
