Hackerspaces are the digital-age equivalent of English Enlightenment coffee houses. They are places open to all, indifferent to social status, and where ideas and knowledge hold primary value. In 17th-century England, the social equality and merit-ocracy of coffee houses was so deeply troubling to those in power that King Charles II tried to suppress them for being "places where the disaffected met, and spread scandalous reports concerning the conduct of His Majesty and his Ministers". It was in the coffee houses that information previously held in secret and by elites was shared with an emerging middle class. They were held responsible for many of the social reforms of the 18th century, when English public life was transformed.

"If the fake vaccination campaign was a necessary part of the operation to "take out" Osama bin Laden, it would have been better to leave Mr bin Laden in. One more ailing ex-terrorist holed up in a ratty house in remote Pakistan, watching old videos of himself; this was not worth jeopardising global vaccination campaigns."

... It’s one of those things that you typically get to spend your whole life doing, telling the story of who you are. ...  So much grief is spent on the words that never get spoken to the dead. ... I’m not sure if I had another eighty years I could say everything, think about all of the things that you leave stored in the recesses of yourself because they are too hard to say or too painful or risk too much but you don’t mind because you’ll always have another chance, there is a bird’s carcass wedged in the grill of the truck I can see the texture of the treads of its tires and the steam of its engine and oh god the shriek of its breaks ...  I love the mole on the ridge of your left shoulder don’t ever remove it.

Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way

" The need for privacy comes mainly from fear of what other people will think."

Stopped reading there. The need for privacy comes primarily because of unequal distribution of power within society.
