Over the last few weeks a couple of people sent me links with notes like “sorry if you’ve seen this already.” Never apologize! Always send the links! It’s very much appreciated, whether I’ve read the article or not.

This week: Progress and its discontents / The arrogance of the Anthropocene / Inside DeepMind’s mission to solve science’s trickiest problem / William Gibson: One tough zeitgeist / The sinister brutality of shipping container architecture

A year ago: Recollections of Decolonizing Mars.
