Weekly Digest for Sunday 21st June

Good to see Scotland unlocking….tomorrow is start of week 15 of WFH for me and I can see me having occasional days back in the office. Traffic is getting busier too. Be interesting to see where the mask discussion goes. Mandatory from tomorrow on public transport but the ask to wear them in shops is largely ignored. Would say around 10-20% are wearing masks in the shops in Glasgow…needs to be higher. What I’m looking forward to is a week off work even with the lockdown restrictions in place. Need a rest.

Black Life’s Matter and many other organisations rely on social media but Google Doc’s is a surprisingly effective tool.

You Download the App and it Doesn’t Work

WWDC tomorrow and while there’s rumours of ARM Mac’s and significant iOS changes to come the news this week has been dominated by Apple’s App Store and how it’s doubling down on service revenue and insisting that apps must allow Apple to take 30% of revenue. What worked 13 years ago is no longer the case. Hopefully Apple will see sense and change it’s stance…before legislation forces it.

Tenement Bonding

Glasgow tenements are fantastic. This story of how neighbours got together to reclaim a back garden is brilliant and shows another side of what lockdown has done – brought people together in times of need.

Story behind the Sad Banger

Robyn’s Dancing On My Own is such a great song.

Drive & Listen

If you need some background entertainment while you work you could do worse than try Drive & Listen. Quite addictive.
