Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. First, some bad news. The U.S. House of Representatives voted to roll back FCC privacy regulations that were approved last year, and as a result Internet Service Providers will now be able to sell "sensitive data" like web browsing history without obtaining explicit permission from the user.

2. For a fun read, check out The Arrival of Artificial Intelligence over at Stratechery. Author Ben Thompson gives a brief history of computing and helps to further define "artificial intelligence" and "machine learning". It's definitely worth checking out.

3. When it comes to my yoga practice, I consider myself to be an absolute beginner. While there was a time in my life when it was part of my daily routine, nowadays I am much more infrequent getting on the mat. I came across this ultimate guide to yoga for beginners article and found it inspiring and helpful, so I wanted to share it here. If you're interested in starting or deepening your own yoga practice, give it a read!

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
