This Week in Upgrades: March 21

Happy spring! Southern California has essentially one season, but maybe it’s actually spring where you live. I was able to walk out the door in a fleece this morning so I’m happy with that.

All kinds of interesting and important things in the last week. Things like:

A news site is posting in Lakota to try to preserve the language.

Nautilus wonders why wheelchairs are more stigmatized than glasses. “Disability is partly a medical identity, and partly a political identity.”

Domino’s is testing a pizza delivery robot. Automation creeps in a little more each day.

This presidential election has been nearly impossible to explain. Maybe it all comes down to a wedding?

ICYMI: SeaWorld will no longer breed orcas in captivity.

America is undergoing its first major population dislocation due to climate change.

The news in your own country feels like the most important stuff in the whole world. But what is the rest of the world paying attention to?

Self-driving cars will change the nature of intersections (for the better).

It’s not great to drink your protein. We all need to ease up a bit on the meal replacement thing.

How do you stop Internet trolling?

A celebration of leftovers. Yes!

Have a fantastic week!
