One of the oddities of public services is that those accountable very rarely rely on those services that matter most. twitter.com/tomfgoodwin/status

"Blue Monday" is a bogus "equation", created to market Sky Travel holidays.

The evidence shows low mood doesn't vary with season.

Using pseudoscience to "just start a conversation" is not helpful. Mental health discussions should be built on honesty.

SpaceX’s successful test of the crew capsule escape system this morning is a big deal. This likely clears the way for human spaceflight as early as *March*, the US’s first since STS-135 in 2011.

Much of my time over the last year has been spent building demos, prototypes, or MVPs. People often use these terms interchangeably, but they're not the same thing! I wrote about what I mean when I use each of these terms: jacobian.org/2020/jan/16/demos

I think there’s an opportunity for immutable ledgers to allow organisations to state that they did a thing, so that they can later be held to account by trusted parties (auditors, researchers). Replacing trusted parties with them is a fallacy. twitter.com/hondanhon/status/1

"removing the need for trusted intermediaries" is an example of software/tech solutionists who keep forgetting tech exists only in a human world with humans in it, and that humans create technology + software

you'll always need to figure out how you can trust the humans

Inritbanden ("entrance blocks") are ramped kerbs that enable the continuous foot and cycle paths ubiquitous on Dutch streets.

Critical to this detail is a simple, off-the-shelf element that has been difficult to source outside the Netherlands. Until now.
