Our space, our place: Dispatch from a BIPOC ‘Frogger’ ride

Frogger friends.(Photo courtesy Mateen Richey) This story is by northeast Portland resident Mateen Richey, a new contributor who you might recall from our profile of him back in January. “At this ride, we were all people of color.” This is a dispatch in the month of Black History (the shortest month of the year). I was recently invited to a “Frogger” ride for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color). A “Frogger” ride is a ride that hops from road to wet dirt, singletrack to gravel roads, ...

Cory Doctorow on how the Democrats can avoid getting creamed in the 2022 elections

These rubber shoes look better than Crocs (and are cheaper)

I've been wearing rubber shoes like these for at least 8 years. (Cory turned me on to them). No socks needed. You can step down on the heel and turn them into slippers. Comfortable, whisper-quiet, and feather-light. Dishwasher friendly (I sometimes take them into the shower to clean them). — Read the rest

Z Fellows offers $10k to stop what you’re doing for a week and work on a side project

There is massive VC overcapitalization for Series A and later companies, and probably for seed as well. But there is a massive gap in the market to financially underwrite promising founders and guide them out of their current employers or schools. Cory Levy, who has been a long-time angel investor and startup tinkerer, launched First Text last year as an experiment to see what would happen if all communication barriers between founders and VCs were removed by substituting the formal pitch pre...

In small-town Minnesota, national politics are nasty. But residents have to find ways to get along.

Madi McVan/Insider Madi McVan/Insider Windom, Minnesota, is a town where national issues are visible on a local scale. The county voted for President Donald Trump by a wide margin in 2016, even though the state went Democrat and is expected to again this year. Residents are growing increasingly diverse as meatpacking and farming jobs attract immigrants. They may disagree on racism, the pandemic, the economy, and more, but they still find ways to get along — because they have to. Visit Busi...
