Smart stuff I'm reading about A.I., a really cool documentary about the old internet and "Mulholland Drive," and more
Greetings from Read Max HQ! Every week, sometimes on Fridays, sometimes on Sundays, and sometimes … on another day, I pick out some worthwhile and often overlooked books, articles, movies, and music to recommend to paying subscribers. This week I’ve got:
Another long roundup of writing about A.I. that I’ve read recently and found useful;
a cool short video about the old internet, message boards, screamer videos, and Mulholland Drive; and
a great live recording of David Sylvian I’d never heard before.
