From Seth Godin’s recent blog about the monopoly of Google search: While it’s tempting to seek to be picked by authorities and found by strangers, the more reliable path is to organize and connect those that seek to be part of a tribe, to establish better cultural norms and then persist in making promises and […]
Peanut butter. Here’s a picture of a man with a foot injury wearing pink pants, though.
Bike Snob’s Outside magazine column about “forever bikes” hits me in the feels: There’s also yet another way to obtain a forever bike, and that’s by accident. Sometimes a bike starts out as nothing particularly special, then years later you realize it’s become such a part of your life that you can’t imagine ever being […]

All of these tending apps sound like they come right out of Feed.
I’m going to be thinking about Feed by M.T. Anderson for a long time. It’s mostly a not-too-far-off description of the logical conclusion of social media and capitalism, and was written in 2001 (before social media existed!?) but feels terribly present-day.

Induced demand is the most bananas thing. Via City Observatory: But what appears to have happened is that the wider I-5 just funneled more peak hour traffic, more quickly into the bridge area. The result is that the roadway jams up more quickly, and that backups occur earlier and last longer, with the result that […]
