Five Things: Curator's Cut for August
Five Things you should read.
Welcome to the latest edition of Five Things - this is the curator’s cut with five articles that didn’t make it into the rotation!
Every week I pick out five articles for you to read, but sometimes there is just too much interesting stuff, or too much on one topic. Those articles I save for later to send out to my most valued readers - the one who got a paid subscription! ✌🏻
In this edition of the Five Things Curator’s Cut, you can read about getting mail ro people without the help of the postal system, you can read about your data that is being used to make the Large Language Models of AI systems work, you can read about the new ways to make American cities more attractive, which also makes them even more generic. And you can read about Ken, who doesn’t get as much attention as Barbie, because he is just Ken. Finally, read about the strange time in our lives when we didn’t have smartphones.
