• Amid mounting pressure on Obama to pardon whistleblowers Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden this week (update: Manning will be freed in May!) it’s worth revisiting Astra Taylor’s salvo on presidential pardons, and their shady, unofficial counterparts.

• While everyone else is soberly getting through the week, Silicon Valley is still high as a kite. Herewith they present to you “tinder for adoption” and “young blood” startup Ambrosia, whose founder is “Personal Health Director” to Peter Thiel.

• Oh, the fun they had.
