A great article about the Internet and , about the web's comfortable walled gardens, urban elites, advertisements, the division between the rich and the poor, resilient communities, and much more totally worth the 20 minutes of reading.

One of the things I will probably never understand: How can a summit "for " ask their participants for input and then use proprietary for it? So sad.

The value of #biodiversity in #agriculture

"insect pollination is estimated to be worth £400 million to the UK economy, and predatory insects providing natural pest control is estimated to be worth $13.6 billion to the US economy"

Schöner Artikel von @kaffeeringe: "Dein Algorithmus ist ne alte Umweltsau" fasst ganz gut ein paar der aktuellen Problem zusammen, welche die entfesselte Turbo-Digitalisierung uns beschert hat: Computing, , , , , ...
