  • Acronym Designer Errolson Hugh Sees the Future

    For what it's worth, he seems to be genuinely conflicted by all of this. Thinks fast fashion is a pestilence that should be launched into the sun. Travels a ton, bouncing between Tokyo (where his longtime girlfriend—and frequent Acronym model—Melody Yoko Reilly, often works), Paris, and the States, but still feels icky about being the kind of global citizen who contributes to jet-fuel consumption. Loves his team of Acrokids and wants to do right by them, but the prospect of scaling the company in a world that will soon be uninhabitable worries him, and no solution is going to avail itself anytime soon. "It will seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first. Bows are difficult to draw, halberds are difficult to wield; as you become accustomed to the bow so your pull will become stronger." “The advantage of being home nowhere,” he says, “is you're home everywhere.” That sense of placelessness, that sort of post-geographic-outsider perspective, that kind of oppositional self-positioning—whether you're a Chinese-Jamaican-Canadian immigrant living in Germany or something else altogether—helped make Acronym what it is on a substructural level. There's grace in the foreign, fortification in doing the new, hard thing. You become accustomed to the bow and your pull becomes stronger. “People ask me, like, ‘Where's home?’ ” Errolson says. “I'm like, ‘I don't know. Where's my laptop? Where's my jacket?’ ”

  • Trisha Kehaulani Watson: The Beauty of Being Satisfied With 'Enough'

    This, of course, is counter to everything capitalism promotes. Capitalism champions the concept that we, as good people, should always be wanting more. More money. More wealth. More stuff. Just more. But “more” is not better. More is, in fact, unsustainable and destructive, because there isn’t enough “more” for everyone.

  • Netflix's Bright Future Looks A Lot Like Television's Dim Past

    And now we know what it looks like. In 2018, 14 of Neflix’s top 20 shows, and all 10 of its top 10 shows, were broadcast-network reruns. Friends, which received its first Emmy nomination while Bill Clinton was president, is number one. Some are good, some are bad, none are really great, and all are sitting there in identical little rectangles waiting to be autoplayed while you see if your new CBD chocolates are any good.

  • Landlord 2.0: Tech’s New Rentier Capitalism

    The companies accumulating vast wealth through platform businesses are also telling us that ownership is an old-fashioned idea, while deploying the seductive language of “sharing” and “convenience.” But they don’t mention the contingent access and lack of rights — or the death by a thousand subscriptions and charges — that come along with renting the things you use every day. Nobody would look at the dynamic between landlords and tenants and say, “Yep, I’m happy to apply that to my entire life.” Yet that is what’s happening when we accept, or don’t resist, the expansion of extraction-as-a-service. If this movement of Landlords 2.0 had a motto, it would be this: Why limit rent collection to real estate when there is a whole world out there waiting to capture rent from, online and off?

  • Is This the End of Recycling?

    This end of recycling comes at a time when the United States is creating more waste than ever. In 2015, the most recent year for which national data are available, America generated 262.4 million tons of waste, up 4.5 percent from 2010 and 60 percent from 1985. That amounts to nearly five pounds per person a day. New York City collected 934 tons of metal, plastic, and glass a day from residents last year, a 33 percent increase from 2013. Americans tend to be “aspirational” about their recycling, tossing an item in the blue bin because it makes them feel less guilty about consuming it and throwing it away.
