As things go, some of the educational software being forced upon your children's computers and devices are just as invasive as letting a stranger wander into their bedroom.

New art books from Simon Stålenhag! If you've never checked out this man's art, you are missing out. He does sci-fi in a way I've never quite seen before, and he depicts rural cyberpunk in a way that feels absolutely real.
