Windfarm industry urges UK to lift onshore subsidies ban | Environment | The Guardian
Ministers have been urged to drop their block on subsidies for onshore windfarms, as industry figures showed that nearly 800 renewable projects are ready to plug much of the power gap left by the abandonment of the Wylfa nuclear project.

Hitachi dropped plans for the nuclear plant in Wales this week, raising questions over what would replace it and leading the business secretary, Greg Clark, to admit that renewable energy sources are more competitively priced than nuclear.

.@FordFoundation announces $1.3M in funding for digital infrastructure research
Together with the Sloan Foundation, the Ford Foundation will support thirteen projects focusing on research related to "the sustainability, maintainability, and security of open-source digital infrastructure," writes Michael Brennan, the Ford Foundation's Technology Program Officer for Internet Freedom, in a blog post announcing the project:

"Over the past two years, Ford has partnered with other foundations (including Sloan and the Open Technology Fund), to explore what our role could and should be in the field of open-source code—that’s the public code that we all rely upon every day. This code represents the roads and bridges of our digital infrastructure, and is both more pervasive and perhaps more fragile than ever. If this infrastructure fails, the consequences will be the same as when physical infrastructure falls apart: people with privilege and resources will find other ways to navigate the world, while those on the margins will bear the brunt through higher costs, decreased access, and a related lack of opportunity. We learned that when it came to the public interest needs of digital infrastructure, there were a number of critical unanswered questions that were getting very little attention. So we decided to focus on supporting those who are seeking answers."

You can read about each project in the blog post, or in more detailed form here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UcP2isozDZyHjxNdY_jdtrG6nMB3hk37Ucu1HzFzYWo/edit

The Route of a Text Message
"This is the third post in my full-stack dev (f-s d) series on the secret life of data. This installment is about a single text message: how it was typed, stored, sent, received, and displayed. I sprinkle in some history and context to break up the alphabet soup of protocols, but though the piece gets technical, it should all be easily understood."
