in the past months some very unfortunate news came out, including surveillance of us, or Google buying domain names for internal usage. It’s hard to stay positive these days when you look at the big picture and the big companies who try to massively undermine laws or internet users’ rights. But we’re here to not capitulate and we must not forget about the good things happening every day in your life. The small things that make you happy, make you go to work, enjoy working and let you live life. We should more try to remember these little details and to do that I recently started to note down each day a few things that worked and made me happy. Maybe you should start doing that, too?

The Lie We Live reminds us on the facts of our planet, of how we lie to ourselves to make things work but how important it is to remind yourself of that fact from time to time. Very much worth watching it:
