Artist Jim Woodring has updated his site with a bunch of new sketches, animations, and prints.
Here for you is the fledgling edition of The Woodring Monitor. It
consists of links to: some new sketchbook pages, the previously
unpublished text of a talk given last summer in San Francisco, tin toy
animations by Bob Smolenski, some new merchandise, a small selection of
new art for sale, and a little news.
Peace and love,
(Just write back if this is an unconscionable intrusion into your inbox
and I swear I'll never bother you again.)

MIT Tech Review's Antonio Regalado rounds up the year's stupidest, worst moments in tech, from the guy who created his own CRISPR-based gene therapy to beef up his muscles and injected it to Donald Trump's Twitter feed to the FCC's Net Neutrality catastrophe. Of course, Juicero rates a mention.
