I'm asking this question tomorrow in my 💥Thought Shrapnel newsletter, but I'll ask it here as well.
👉 Which podcasts do you listen to (and enjoy!) that cover the intersection of technology and society?
(reason being I'm thinking of starting a new podcast with a friend)

On a side note, as I collect my comments, it was funny to notice that I have written three comments on your blog in regards to commuting.
First and foremost, I do it for me. The memex I’ve created by thinking about and then describing every interesting thing I’ve encountered is hugely important for how I understand the world. It’s the raw material of every novel, article, story and speech I write.
And I do it for the causes I believe in. There’s stuff in this world I want to change for the better. Explaining what I think is wrong, and how it can be improved, is the best way I know for nudging it in a direction I want to see it move.
I also like your suggestion that it is your ‘outboard brain’.
I go through my old posts every day. I know that much – most? – of them are not for the ages. But some of them are good. Some, I think, are great. They define who I am. They’re my outboard brain.
The question I wonder is how your purpose has changed over time? Clearly your process with Blogger is different than what you do now, is there anything beyond that?
I was left thinking of something Chris Gilliard ironically tweeted:
It’s okay not to tweet today. Really it is. https://t.co/qOSDQgEowb

Other than Smith, Maxwell is actually Australia’s most recent Test centurion against India. He is also a more impactful part-time bowler than either Wade or Head, and a more dynamic fielder than both combined.
Numbers can’t be generated to explain his many ancillary weapons, nor the uncertainty they create in opponents.
Put simply, Maxwell has been the victim of unevenly applied standards.
Since his last Test axing, for instance, he’s averaged considerably more runs in the Sheffield Shield than Marnus Labuschagne had when selected for the Sydney Test two summers ago.
Among the batsmen with inferior first-class records who have leapfrogged him since 2015 are the emblematic figures of various Australian debacles: Cameron Bancroft, Joe Burns, Mitchell Marsh, Aaron Finch and Marcus Harris. In Maxwell’s time, even Hilton Cartwright has played a home Test.
This is something I have.
This seems like the sort of topic that one might blog about?:
My fast food social media diet has been replaced by one managed around blogs, feeds and comments. I do sometimes feel I miss out on some things, but trust that if I need to know something that I will probably capture through some other means.

In regards to itches, I would still like the ability to search for content associated with particular tags, this is what happens when you start using WordPress as a commonplace book. That this granny is happy enough for now.
I didn’t really like how Feedly organised the various categories and always found it tedious to backup my OPML to share with others. The answer is to subscribe to an OPML Feed stored in the links of a WordPress site, rather than upload a static file.
Often when asked about predictions for the future, I wonder if there will come a time when we can quickly and easily remix music, leaving our own mark. To me, this would need some sort of audio track recognition. I wonder though whether at the same time that such technology becomes available, whether copyright will simply hold us back.
Leaves me thinking that this would probably completely change the way music is recorded in the first place? For example, not sure how Jacob Collier’s hundreds of tracks would be translated into a cleaner UI?
