Welcome to issue #237 of meshedsociety – a curated email in which I share some of the most informative, insightful and inspirational pieces that I've recently been stumbling on, with a focus on technology, digital, and some serendipity.

Hello! I hope you are doing well.
I'm trying out a slightly modified format by making this email more compact, removing most of my commentary and opinion, except for rare cases, or where I consider a comment necessary for context. There is a risk that this will make meshedsociety more generic and less personal. On the other hand, it puts the recommendations front and center, and that's my goal. Plus, it is a bit less work writing this email :)

On to this issue's recommendations!
