Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.
@rixx Makes me wonder if, at least to some extent, the middleman (the web pages) can't be cut out and people would just share a huge bunch of cookies around. Kinda like steganographically hiding your real cookies in a bunch of rubbish cookies...

Nettes Interview zum Thema Konsum und Muße mit Frank Trentmann: https://www.zeit.de/zeit-magazin/leben/2019-06/frank-trentmann-konsum-glueck-interview/komplettansicht
About five years ago I read an article about building responsible/polite/good scrapers that rate limit themselves etc. I can't seem to find it now, can anybody help out? (Similar resources would do, too). It didn't discuss legality, and focused on practical implementation of a few points, like spacing out requests.

Dieses Interview in der taz mit Svenja Flaßpöhler über (schöner als der Anreißer ist es schwer zu sagen) „militante Intoleranz von dauerbeleidigten Identitätslinken“ ist ein Lichtblick. https://taz.de/Von-moralischem-Totalitarismus/!168884/
Ozymandias answered aggressive questions by a gender critical person (TERFy) from an anti-gender-critical feminist POV, and it's a very good read. I don't agree with all the answers given there, but all of them are worth reading and non-hateful.
Highlight: "Just as many cis people articulate their understanding of their genders in sexist or regressive ways, so do many transgender people." !!

All my thanks go to Simon Willison and all Datasette contributors – this project is a joy to work with. Super easy to set up, well-documented for everything beyond that, and it does its job tremendously well. Highly recommended if you want to have a browsable interface for your simple CSV/SQLite data.
I wanted to dig into the Django ticket system for a bit, and find out how groups of tickets were distributed among the components or different states. Didn't want to click through the query builder repeatedly, so here is a Django tickets datasette:
Whenever I think I have maxed out my love for Simone Giertz, she does something even better. This time: A Tesla pickup truck. Cutting off stuff and jamming stuff in, until it's a pickup. 🤣
