This week on the occasionally inaccurately named column Hack Your City, we’re taking tips for the entire Central American nation of Costa Rica.

What Were Your Biggest Tech Regrets of 2018?

As the year winds to a close, it’s time to look back at all the tech-related fun we’ve had the last 300-plus days. Smile at the new upgrades we purchased!

Kansas City sounds like a lot of fun, and now I’m hungry and I really want a drink from the TikiCat tiki bar.

How Do You Perk Up a Bland Recipe?

Today, upon logging onto Slack, I was greeted with a horror story. Last night, our dear managing editor, Virginia, was making a lentil soup recipe from [redacted], only to find it called for a paltry 1/4 teaspoon of salt. “Reader, it was bland,” she told us, to which A.A. Newton replied “I’m going to scream,” because…Read more...

Hack Your City is back! One thing I love about doing this column is learning just how slippery it is to define a “city.” The political borders never match up exactly with the popular definition.

What's Your Mantra?

Lately (as I’ve mentioned) my mantra is, “Is this strategic, or just cathartic?” I’m training myself to repeat it when I feel tempted to say something really stupid during a tense discussion or basically any interaction on Twitter.
