In This Edition:
Connection in a digital office, Cloud Carbon Footprint, Thoughtworks Technology Radar, algorithm wiki, & the longest running TV shows!

I recently finished watching Clarkson's Farm on Amazon Prime. I had avoided it having fallen out of love with Top Gear years ago, and I expected the same from this show. However, after a few recommendations I gave it a go and thoroughly enjoyed it. The toxic masculinity, buffoonery and utter meaninglessness that was so evident in Top Gear in recent years is almost non-existent in this new show. All of that guff is replaced with a learning journey that the audience join Clarkson on as he tries to get to grips with the everyday reality of running a farm, albeit it with a lot of help and plenty of laughs along the way. It provides a fascinating window into the farming world, without having to put the wellies on.

Connection In A Digital Office


With the large amounts of remote working in place now, many proponents of a return to the office talk about missing the spontaneous productivity of casual in person meetings in the office. Seth Godin gives a different view on how remote work allows so much more equitable collaboration and that productivity can and does still happen, it just requires effort.
