A new Tesla 'shared Powerbank' launches as a community alternative to individual Powerwalls - Electrek
So, I wonder how this is wired up? Do they allow backflow of power from the solar installs in homes, and put the battery at the local feeder transformer to handle the locality aspect?

The Villages - Florida's Friendliest Retirement Hometown - New Home Sales, Home Resales, Build Your Dream Home, Brownwood Paddock Square
Apparently, a high density, very white, almost exclusively old people retirement community that has metastized into a whole city. Very burbclave, but all the people who live there really like it. Sorta cultish, but then again, it's like living in a college dorm with similar aged people, so it probably is fun for them.

Apps - Facewatch ID app - Facewatch
Serious 1984 vibes here. Crowdsourcing the extension of CCTV networks for criminal history checks (arguably in realtime) feels like an overstep.

Eureka Streams
Looks like LM opensourced a company internal app. It feels like an intranet specific social media site, but a wee bit more professional. Say something like a light LinkedIn clone with some Facebook parts, sucking in social media from outside the firewall.

CAMPFIRE キャンプファイヤー | マイクロ・パトロン・プラットフォーム #campfirejp
Japanese alternative to Kickstarter. This might have legs, since Kickstarter can only dump money to US banks, and there is a tremendous hobby artisan/creative class in japan that sometimes just needs a nudge to go lightly commercial in nature on various products/ideas/services. Uses Paypal for the user money input (few international alternatives, but japan got tough and made Paypal less pleasant to use do to changes in the law). Nothing huge, but things to scratch an itch...
