Tuesday TEA Time
I am back home in Berlin after my long trip. It feels great to be home. I hope you are well this week.

The first thing I want to link you to is an article about the design of a bullet train in Japan being inspired by nature.
The second is an article about how algorithmic feeds of information are dangerous when trusted to serve content to children. Youtube is serving up terrible content in it’s “Youtube Kids” section. Since algorithms are usually just rules, like games, then people will game the rules to get their way. Terrible people.
Someone or something or some combination of people and things is using YouTube to systematically frighten, traumatise, and abuse children, automatically and at scale, and it forces me to question my own beliefs about the internet, at every level.

Lastly, if you are not already, I really recommend you take time to install and start using a password manager. As more and more websites get hacked or exploited, it is becoming more important to use a different password for every website. A new password manager just came out: RememBear. This is by the same company I use for VPN.

I really enjoyed the above video and I hope you do as well. Also, I am super interested in this list of 100 Notable Books of 2017. I have the audio book of Lincoln in the Bardo, but I haven’t listened to all of it yet. (Moving to the top of the queue.) I don’t read fast enough…
Image of a storm on Jupiter
This color-enhanced image of a massive, raging storm in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft during its ninth close flyby of the gas giant planet. 
Found via this tweet.

That’s it. I hope you are well and have a good rest of the week.
