Here is the latest in my #WTFeconomy  series of posts on Medium. (Earlier posts include The WTF Economy (https://medium.com/the-wtf-economy/the-wtf-economy-a3bd5f52ef00) and Networks and the Nature of the Firm (https://medium.com/the-wtf-economy/networks-and-the-nature-of-the-firm-28790b6afdcc).

These articles are exploring technology and the future of work, and are leading up to an event in November called the Next:Economy Summit (http://conferences.oreilly.com/next-economy)

Tests held in 2012 found that allowing the cyclists to move more freely cut down the chances of collisions with cars, including accidents involving the car's blind spot.
Cyclists in Paris are to be allowed to ride through red lights after tests showed the move would not lead to accidents.

+Adam Boduch I think we need to speak out for victims of crimes perpetrated by illegals.  No one seems to care except Trump.  Or maybe they're too scared.  Obama said nothing about the woman's murder, but he has spoken up for others - sadly nothing for her.

Hadn't seen one of these for a very long time. Surprised to see it showing up as a mobile coffee joint in Toronto. #Renault #HY

Just realized that the moment I load the cbc.ca/news site my CPU consumption increases by about 30-40%. Impressive feat of resource waste.
Confirmed in both Chrome and Firefox.

Interesting, you'd think the emphasis would be on mobile customers first because that's where the growth is.

Johann Hari: Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong #TED : http://on.ted.com/f13y5
What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way.

Joris is the Dutch equivalent of George. Nickname as a kid was 'Driepinter' after the mascot in the Dutch milk commercials that played when I was young.
Great atmosphere and an excellent assortment of Dutch products. My 'go-to' place to get my licorice and dutch cheese fix.

Nothing special but convenient location for a stay before or after cruise from Port Everglades. Hotel provides free shuttle to and from airport and cruise terminal. Breakfast is included but pretty basic.

Stylish looking if you like modern and in a nice location. A bit pricey but probably normal for the area. Did not try the restaurant.
