Hello folks,

While waiting for people to get back to me, I have a lemony fresh blog talking about the Discover / Capital One merger and how that will impact the Agile profession.

The concentration in the consumer credit business will impact all of us, and we had better prepare for it.

The Women Who Rode Miles on Horseback to Deliver Library Books

Librarians are amazing.

They were known as the “book women.” They would saddle up, usually at dawn, to pick their way along snowy hillsides and through muddy creeks with a simple goal: to deliver reading material to Kentucky’s isolated mountain communities.

@tdpauw I'm enjoying the read -- well written. It could easily be a book. I made it as far as the "But Compliance" section and have this feedback for you. Impact Mapping is more about mapping potential benefits to customers and prioritizing new features. In the context of risks, you might want to mention impact analysis, and risk matrices, for example:

Writing in Next City, Aysha Khan notes that “CityBeautiful explores what would it take to integrate more such narrow, #walkablestreets into U.S. cities, from overcoming regulations on minimum #streetwidths and #parkingminimums.”

Scientists Explain Why ‘Doing Your Own Research’ Leads to Believing Conspiracies vice.com/en/article/v7bjpm/sci

“study published on Wednesday in Nature has found that using online search engines to vet conspiracies can actually increase the chance that someone will believe it. The researchers point to a known problem in search called "data voids." Sometimes, there's not a lot of high-quality information to counter misleading headlines or surrounding fringe theories”

@remixtures thank you - I found the idea of a societal health metric enlightening.

“What would an epistemically healthy society look like? … there would be enough social trust that everyone – citizen and policymakers alike – would genuinely try to understand why others disagree with them instead of dismissing other views as the result of brute irrationality or brainwashing.”

#Misinformation #ConspiracyTheories #Censorship: "Unfortunately, not only do most citizens not pay much attention to politics or the news, but a minority actively distrust institutions such as modern science, public health authorities, and mainstream media. The causes of this distrust are complex and diverse. They include psychological traits that predispose some people towards paranoid worldviews; institutional failures, such as telling noble lies to manage public behaviour and dismissing legitimate ideas as conspiracy theories; and feelings—often justified—of exclusion from positions of power and influence. Whatever its causes, however, such distrust often drives people to seek out information—commonly misinformation—from counter-establishment sources and reject information from mainstream ones."

During WWI, Marie Curie created a vehicle that contained a hospital bed, a generator, an X-ray machine and photographic darkroom equipment. These “petite Curies" (below) could be driven right up to the Front. Curie also helped train 150 women as radiology technicians.
