Overwrought But Interesting - I'm a sucker for futurist lectures. Liam Young is a bit on the dramatic side in describing the City Everywhere generation. He describes a world where everything's a computer and networked. There are some ideas in here that push back against techno-utopianism, especially the Elon Musk variety. His delivery can be a bit much, but the visuals are very well executed.
People Who Read Are Better, Says Science - Okay that might be a stretch, but seriously read more books.
More Than Popcorn - I've had a similar idea popping around my head for awhile. The Marvel movies might not be the hight of cinema, but for summer action movies they are surprisingly well made. Beyond that, they're made well enough that they score well with the critics. While they are not all instant classics, some are. Polygon explains the growth of the universe through the story of a single character: Tony Stark.
Old Apps, New Apps - I love old tech. Exploring the old design ideas and systems is interesting, and can help you understand the evolution of technology. However, I find the idea that it's the design of tech, not our own self-indulgence that drives our relationship with smartphones laughable. Use old tech to preserve it and appreciate it, don't think that you're learning some lesson. Sure you can hack your phone into black and white and make it more annoying.
