5 Meta Hacks of the Week

Last week’s Meta Hacks was pretty focused on Earth Day, but this week, we have a pretty large variety on deck. Please feel free to share your own Meta Hacks with me here and I’ll be sure to share them with the Meta Hacks community next week. If you know anyone else who might want to also join the community, please forward these to them, and tell them to sign up here.

Here’s my 5 hacks for this week.

1. Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s ‘page not found error’
Exactly what one would expect.

2. German Supreme Court rules ad blockers legal
This is a big win for Adblock Plus.

3. How to get rid of a used car seat
Never hand down an expired car seat, here are some better options.

4. Podcast listening speeds
A lot of us listen to podcasts at 1.5x speed (or more!), but here’s one take on why you should consider going back to 1x speed. (Contributed by Will T.)

5. The UN declares internet access a basic human right
The resolution “affirms that the same rights that people have offline must also be protected online, in particular freedom of expression, which is applicable regardless of frontiers and through any media of one’s choice.” Well said. (Contributed by Anonymous)
