This is from last week, but it’s so good. “Gamergate wasn’t the birth of a brand-new culture war, it was a rallying cry. And its trollish successes in intimidating women, deceiving clueless brands and picking up mainstream coverage taught a once-dormant subculture powerful lessons about manipulating audiences and manufacturing outrage.” (NYT)

James Bond has a title and it’s No Time to Die. He’s just so busy, okay? Like, just super swamped, you guys. Between the spying and his homemade kombucha side biz, he’s barely getting his beauty rest. (Lainey Gossip)

Drew Magary is bitching about the term “LET’S GOOOOOO” and I am here for this. I hope he can also go after “issa” and “fam”. (Deadspin)

This number is staggering. “This year, influencer marketing spend is at $8.5 billion and is projected to hit up to $10 billion in 2020. But engagement on sponsored content from fake followers is costing brands $1.3 billion a year.” (AMA)

Now that the weekend’s discussion of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic, A Study in Scarlet, is done (it was a great discussion, thanks everyone), Cannonballers are turning their attention to Sherlock retellings for the September 20-21 #CannonBookClub. About Alexis Hall’s The Affair of The Mysterious Letter, Leedock says, "It’s a sexy, paranormal, alternate-universe, gender-bending Sherlock-y bunch of goodness. SO MUCH FUN." What’s your favorite version of Sherlock Holmes? (Cannonball Read 11)
