Interesting stuff

  1. Video: The redesign of Pakistan’s rivers created the world’s largest irrigation district — and many problems.
  2. Read: Which matters most: Many bikes or good infrastructure?

  4. Read: Disney is harvesting data from you and your kids.
  5. Read: How counterfeit fabric slips into a complex supply chain
  6. Read: Musk’s destruction of Twitter should push legislators to regulate algorithms. My idea? Make any company with x% market share disclose its algorithm (even if it’s in a black box), so that civili society can find its bias.
  7. Read: Heat pumps are amazing. Have you got one? (I’m waiting for a smaller one for my flat.)
