The Weekly Filet brings you the five best links of the week, every Friday. Making sense of the big issues of our time (with a healthy dose of serendipity and nerdiness). Curated by journalist David Bauer.

Look on the Dark Side

Kyra Maya Philipps

A wonderful, boldly personal essay about the power of darkness. About the darkness inside, that is so powerful in destruction. But also powerful in creation. Kyra Maya Philipps recounts how she learnt from pirates and hackers to embrace the dark side and use it as a creative force. If you have time to only read one thing this weekend, make it this one.

From Weekly Filet #114, in August 2014.
