In February 1974, whilst recovering from dental surgery, something profound and inexplicable happened to author Philip K Dick that changed his life forever. Was it an illness, a psychotic reaction, or something truly mystical?
This is the exegesis of Philip K Dick...
Philip K Dick was both prolific and influential. In his youth he came to the conclusion that, in a certain sense, the world is not entirely real and there is no way to confirm whether it is truly there.

Rep. Steve Cohen complaining to the CEO of Google during a House Judiciary Committee meeting that he searched his own name, but didn't like the articles that came up, and then demanding Google do something about it is an absolutely perfect 2018 moment.
Rep. Jim Jordan followed up this insightful commentary by complaining that Google may have helped too many Latinos vote, making a strong, free-market conservative case for corporations not being allowed to directly intervene in politics.

1. Today it's all about Google CEO Sundar Pichai testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, the committee that handles antitrust. Hearing starts at 10am. Some thoughts.
2. Google is in serious trouble. The company is thuggish, corrupt, and monopolistic. Its employees are upset. Its programmatic advertising is fraud-ridden and Youtube subsidiary is an extremist factory. It has of late, however, hidden behind Mark Zuckerberg, who is far clumsier.
