For me, getting there was jus...

Our Senior Strategist Zanna Wharfe explores the booming short-form mobile video platform. What is TikTok and who is using it?

When it comes to elections, Facebook moves slow, may still break things

This week, Facebook invited a small group of journalists — which didn’t include TechCrunch — to look at the “war room” it has set up in Dublin, Ireland, to help monitor its products for election-related content that violates its policies. (“Time and space constraints” limited the numbers, a spokesperson told us when he asked why we weren’t invited.)

Old Norse, mystics and race cars: is Älvdalen the weirdest village in Sweden?

How photographer Michael Wolf captured the melancholy of our teeming cities

From Japanese commuters pressed against train windows to the high-rise hutches of Hong Kong, the German photographer caught the effects of global capitalism on humansMichael Wolf, who has died suddenly, aged 64, was perhaps best known for his 2013-14 series, Architecture of Density, in which the facades of Hong Kong’s massive tower blocks, each one housing thousands of people, appear as dramatic geometric abstractions of light and colour.
