My New America colleague Peter Singer has a piece (with some other guy) in the November issue of the Atlantic that you all should read. Key point: “Social media has already revolutionized everything from dating to business to politics. Now it is reshaping war itself.”

I was especially interested in the article’s explanation of what Putin is up to. “The aim is not to make you love Putin. The aim is to make you disbelieve anything.”
