New on The Nexus Today: Accountability, Impeachment, and Insurrection

The "Politics" menu on The Nexus Today, with topics including Higlights (with a check)< Insurrection, Disinformation, Impeachmet, Accountability, Reproductive Justice, Black Lives Matter, and more

The Nexus Today is a news aggregator, highlighting interesting links from around the web on a variety of topics.   Unlike Google News, Reddit, and other popular news aggregators, it’s designed with an explicit focus on accessibility, privacy, diversity and justice.   You can read more about it here – or check it out at

One of the advantages of the approach I've taken is that it's fairly easy to add new topics.   After feedback from the Oracle for Transfeminist Technologies, I added Accountability last week.  In the aftermath of the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and with warnings about ongoing threats of violent actions around the country, I added the timely topics of Insurrection and Impeachment over the weekend.  

To use the site, pick a topic from the menus.   If you like visuals, there's also a "show images" option.  Or if you prefer an Apple News/reddit-style display, with just the headlines and smaller images, you can use the alternate link at  [I know, I know, that's kind of awkward ... I'll integrate it better soon.]

Right now stories about the insurrection are unsurprisingly at the top of the Politics front page.   Still, there's a lot of other important stuff happening as well – the top stories in the Tech section are currently Millions of people uploaded photos to the Ever app. Then the company used them to develop facial recognition tools, Leaked Location Data Shows Another Muslim Prayer App Tracking Users, Experts weigh in on National Guard monitoring protests (discussing the George Floyd protests, not the current insurrection), and A New (Non-)Privacy Policy from WhatsApp? [A comparison between messaging applications].  

And if you're thinking that these look a lot like the links that I include in updates here on JEDII Tech, that's not a coincidence – most of the links in the link roundups do indeed come from The Nexus Today.   The site operates mostly automatic (with a limited amount of editing); I cherry-pick some of the best links for the newsletter.  Right now, that involves cut-and-paste, but one of the things on my list is to streamline things.
