Twitter is temporarily disabling algorithmic recommendations to combat misinformation 👍 Indicates these systems are fundamentally broken (on all platforms) and shouldn't be used. If it's not election meddling it's conspiracy theories, anti-vax, climate denial, etc. But $$$

It shouldn't have taken a pandemic for San Francisco to prioritize street space for outdoor eating & drinking over parking. And it shouldn't have taken devastating wildfires for California to prioritize the state's habitability over fossil fuel interests

"Transportation is the single biggest source of the state’s carbon emissions. Progress is negligible. The vast majority of vehicles (91.9 percent) still run on gasoline & diesel, & state’s housing crisis means people are living farther from their jobs."

What happens in an organization that can't iterate quickly? PMs write proposals for projects detailing requirements (new APIs, 10 engineers, etc.) and the imagined results in 6-12 months. Then directors read proposals and decide which projects get the limited $$$
