Oliver O'Brien's presentation from cycling@tea-time seminar on the impact of the lockdown on bikeshare in London, the UK, and the world in general: oobrien.com/2020/05/lockdown-a

Watched "Chair Times" today, a documentary discussing the development of the chair from 1807 until today. From luxury good, to functional object, to an art statement and back to luxury again. Well worth watching vitra.com/en-gb/page/chair-tim. Via @kottke

I resurrected my old blog from the death of a PHP upgrade. I haven't updated it since 2013. It has a blogroll that I haven't updated in at least as long. I went through some of the sites I have on it They are still great sites. I like that smell of old handcrafted websites.

I thoroughly enjoyed Jamie Bartlett's podcast 'The Missing Crypto Queen'.
