If one image sums up our first few months in the Netherlands, it’s this.

A society that—over decades—has shaped its infrastructure, policy, and culture to prioritize humans over motor vehicles.

We haven’t once felt uncomfortable or unsafe on a bike.

We might just stay forever.

A CityLab classic from our archive is making the internet rounds: a 13,235-mile U.S. road trip designed for 70-degree weather every day.

The route was designed by meteorologist @Climatologist49@twitter.com.

The progress-themed way we teach American history makes it kind of impossible to convey the pretty straightforward fact that Lincoln's assassination was a tide-turning political victory for the Confederate cause twitter.com/cjane87/status/113

I’ve done Twitter AMAs for years, but this is the first time a majority of the questions have been about whether humans and the planet are doomed. I’m not just seeing anxiety; it’s hopelessness. I think we’re failing people if this is the message they’re getting.

Something cataclysmic happened around 1980. As Ronald Reagan took the White House, the top 0.1% controlled 7% of the US’s wealth. By 2014, the top 0.1% had tripled its share, to 22%, a bit more wealth than the bottom 85% of the country controlled.

This is what happens when you think it is enough to hire people in a specialty but don’t alter your processes

New theory: I think some organizations hire a lot of great UX researchers and then never effectively convert that research into improvements for their users. I'm looking at a big company with a ton of research and a product with the same usability issues year on year.

Speaking as a psychologist, I’m flabbergasted by claims that the decisions of algorithms are opaque while the decisions of people are transparent. I’ve spent half my life at it and I still have limited success understanding human decisions.

It is expensive to try to make sure that the undeserving are not cared for

A friend just mentioned her 1998 college computer, a less capable machine than the ones we use now but fundamentally similar in how it was used.

THIS primitive brick was my college computer, and I was a bit unusually nerdy in having a computer at all.

A profound culture gap.

1. Barcelona is holding municipal elections on Sunday! In anticipation, I'm going to tell you, one last time, about my research project on Barcelona's "superblocks." If you care at all about urban planning -- or just living in cities -- you will find this story fascinating.
