Chris Aldrich wanted to know if I have a feed of podcasts I've actually listened to. Last time I checked, the RSS feed was very broken, a symptom of a site-wide problem. But the h-feed works, so there's that. At https://www.jeremycherfas.net/stream

I confess, I missed this story https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/norwegian-strawberry-group-and-altor-swoop-on-thomas-cook-assets-... when it first came out, and have not seen responses, but if a major backer of EAT has bought an airline, it does rather call into question the whole "less meat" aspect of climate change campaigners.

Indeed, many of the people I've talked to about cashew nuts don't know the human suffering that goes into them. I learned about it ages ago, when the World Bank interfered with cashew production in Mozambique. That capuchins manage it amazes me.

Good work so far. As you note, micro.blog already offers a lot of the IndieWeb building blocks. And it recently started to offer an option to register your own domain, addressing another of your points. It's a good option for people (who can afford it) to explore the possibilities, and the nice thing is you can always move your content somewhere else if you want to. That's another good reason not to rely on silos.

John Naughton seems overly impressed by the distant blog of King's College Chapel. I prefer to think that Clare's Memorial Court occupies the centre of the frame.

Perhaps it was from you that I learned about @georgethepoet. In any case, his episode on Grenfell Tower was astonishingly good. So full of understanding and also so provocative. Can't wait to get stuck in to the live episode.
