Finding good 9V rechargeable batteries is still surprisingly hard.

Trying out this Li-ion block, which can be charged via USB (which is neat!) and promises a capacity of 650mAh. I still have my doubts, but we'll see.

I had the idea a while back that in the far future, architecture criticism will be replaced with starship criticism.

Architecture criticism as a genre isn't about blueprints or materials, it's about a building's place in public life and what it says about society. So that, but for starships. I gave it a trial run last year with this essay on Star Trek's USS Excelsior.

I plan on doing more of these soon, so send me suggestions for other fictional starships to critique.

There are roughly 3 trillion trees growing on Earth. 🌍 Planting 1.2 trillion more would cancel out about 10 years worth of the CO₂ emissions causing climate change.

Folks talk about echo chambers but really online we’re exposed to way more different ideas and points of view than, say, boomers who live their entire lives in the suburbs or in the country and get all their ideas from TV. It’s just that we’re better at quickly identifying the ideas that are crap and blocking them.

Infoshop: **When Being an Opponent of White Supremacy Means Being Not Nice**

"“Nice people made the best Nazis. My mom grew up next to them. They got along, refused to make waves, looked the other way when things got ugly and focused on happier things than ‘politics.’ They were lovely people who turned their heads as their neighbors…"
