Everyone who works in a creative field, or wants to, should subscribe to the monthly newsletter Three Cents. In each issue, writer and editor Manjula Martin writes three brief essays and lists some well-curated links about creative work. It's helpful for learning industry norms and expectations, and it's a great way for freelancers and work-from-home creatives to feel less isolated.
Yesterday, The New York Times went deep into some of Uber's shady business practices.

Dear Lifehacker, I have just tried to unsubscribe from a marketing email from a business who I'd previously bought some items from in-store.
