Possibly a good idea.
Open bank data will give us the freedom to access all banks in real time and from a single view, automatically calculating the best deals in complete transparency, which will be a significant step forward for social good and give people more control over their finances.

Slightly old, a little vague at times but pretty interesting. Where Open Source is not talking about just cod.

I just read another story discovered through https://news.ycombinator.com/ and whilst it has a quite sizeable number of UK based stories usually due to the BBC news it did make me wonder if there's any more dedicated UK and or EU covering sites available?

Are blackboards still the superior technology?
This spring, an 80-year-old Japanese chalk company went out of business. Nobody, perhaps, was as sad to see the company go as mathematicians who had become obsessed with Hagoromo Fulltouch Chalk, the so-called “Rolls Royce of chalk.”

That's the end of the Postal Service then.
The government's remaining 30% stake in the Royal Mail is to be sold off to help pay down the deficit, George Osborne has said.

Interesting how popular running has been for centuries.
Roger Bannister was credited with being the first person to run a mile in under four minutes - but 18th Century runners are reported to have got there first.

Captures why I get so annoyed at everyone buying the cheapest food, destruction of farm land for more houses, roads and so on.
War, pestilence, even climate change, are trifles by comparison. Destroy the soil and we all starve

I watched a movie, Interstellar which reminded me of you. About some of the discussions we had in the past about exactly this subject. In the movie the population also loses everything due to a plight and everyone ends up becoming farmers because in the end that's the most important thing for the subsistence of a civilization. Then when they notice that farming is not going to last because the plight is worse than expected, the only solution is to go interstellar. Great movie, you should watch. +Jennifer Sorge

Ban the stupid email disclaimer signature! I'm for it.
An MP calls for an end to "useless" legal disclaimers at the bottom of emails, saying they lead to "forests' worth of paper" being wasted.

Does it translate to the UK?
Idaho already lets cyclists do this. Research and common sense say that their law should go nationwide.
