“What are you without #racism? Are you any good? Are you still strong? Still smart? Do you still like yourself? ...If you can only be tall because somebody’s on their knees, then you have a serious problem.”
- #ToniMorrison, 1993 Charlie Rose interview

@loke @nitza Having a walkable city does seem to be a problem in some parts of the world. Not so much here in the UK as, I suspect, most of our towns and cities predate the car.

@nitza @loke Anyway, who would want to drive their car in the city if they spent most of their time underground. It would just end up being a very expensive way of getting people out of their cars.

@loke Those two ideas are not complementary. If you build a "city for people, not cars" then it will have fewer cars, self-driving or otherwise. Self-driving cars won't improve the environment in our cities, using more environmentally forms of transport will.

Now can't reset the alarm volume of the other affected alarms as I'm on a train full of quiet (snoozing) commuters and the app insists on testing any new volume setting.

(Actually, to be more accurate, the alarm went off but the volume was set to zero.)

First world problem?: my alarm failed to go off this morning after the alarm app was updated last night.

Rising this day with a full design to mind nothing else but to make up my accounts for the year past, I did take money, and walk forth to several places in the towne as far as the New Exchange, to pay all my debts, it being still a very great frost and good walking.

In case you needed to hate Jeff Bezos even more this morning: did you know that there's a .amazon TLD, and the nations of Brazil and Peru rightfully tried to sue Amazon.com for claiming it, but Amazon.com won the suit. This is so many layers of disgusting I can't even begin to catalog them.

People who make a voting plan in advance (what time they’ll go, which route they’ll take etc.) are significantly more likely to vote on the day. So make a plan! t.co/YOzLavjaN5
