Stéphane Côté (@StephaneCoteTO) and Michael Kraus (@mwkraus) wrote an op-ed in the Sunday NYT on their research about the divide between classes and the difficulty of bridging that gap socially, as well as an intervention that can help overcome it.
Adam Waytz (@AWaytz) suggests that before they become our overlords, robots may make good whistle-blowers.
