Today I recommend the podcast about "Inclusivity and Leadership" and everything in Urbanisation. 

If you are just looking for a bit of fun, then check out the video about building a camera in 3D software.


Be a Door Opener, Not a Gatekeeper: Inclusivity and Leadership (with Karen Catlin, Leadership Coach) [Podcast] - you can't give good feedback if you don't delegate well, is an excellent point.


Tuesday was world’s hottest day on record – breaking Monday’s record - this is fine.

Extinction Rebellion plugs holes on 10 Spanish golf courses in water protest - eat the rich.


It's Time to Treat E-Bikes Like Vehicles - "suggesting that e-bikes and e-cargos cost 30 and 50 tanks of gas, respectively."

To Save the Planet, Should We Really Be Moving Slower? - "the city of Paris has made enormous investments in public transit, built hundreds of miles of bike paths, and closed many streets to cars. Car trips within the city dropped by almost sixty per cent between 2001 and 2018, car crashes dropped by thirty per cent, and pollution has improved. The city is quieter and calmer; test scores go up as the air around schools cleans up."

American Cities Have a Conversion Problem, and It’s Not Just Offices - “You’ve completely lost sight of what kind of city you’re trying to get with all those rules,” 

The Top Ten Bikes of Amsterdam in 2023 - the top two are Swapfiets! 

Amsterdam Just Closed their Busiest Road [YouTube] - Amsterdam still leading the way. 

The wrong track: remembering the embarrassing saga of Sydney’s monorail - that is a shame, but not worse than hyper-tunnels.

Random Cameras

Make Your Renders Unnecessarily Complicated [Video] - that is quite a rabbit hole.

Sierra Creative Interpreter – Scripts - I loved those games 

jira-lead-cycle-time-duration-extractor - "it enables easy calculation and visualization of cycle time, lead time, and velocity."

Alcohol-free beer: thirst for healthier options fuels jump in UK sales - if you are caring in any way for your health, reduce your alcohol intake. 

Roads to Ride: Steep, Steeper, Steepest [YouTube] - speaks for me.  

I tried to explain the ZX Spectrum to my son. It didn’t go well - “You had a computer as a kid? You told me you were poor.”

Who killed Google Reader? - It could have been great. On the other hand, we now have a good set of competing feed readers that are better than Google Reader.
