    1. Please recommend analytical, industry-specific blogs and newsletters

      Hey all, I'm looking to expand my stable of long-form, "crunchy" reading material. I'll recommend three. ( I think I found all these through tildes.)

      Casey Handmer's Blog
      A blog about the new space industry with a specific focus on SpaceX and the industrialization of Mars.

      Construction Physics
      A newsletter that analyses trends and data in the construction industry with a focus on modular construction.

      ACOUP
      Essays about medieval and ancient history as well as their interaction with popular culture, with a focus on methods of production and common people in history.

      Another type of content I've really enjoyed is detailed breakdowns of zero-day vulnerabilities and large software catastrophies.

      President Biden's inauguration was on January 20, 2021. This week marks the conclusion of his first 100 days in office.

      I saw this morning that the Washington Post has put out its "Power Rankings" from the outlets various pundits providing their "report cards" on Biden's first 100 days.

      I am interested to see how Tildes has viewed his time in office so far.

    3. Megathread: April Fools' Day 2021 on the internet

      (Is it really that time again already?)

      It's already started a little, but over the next day or so, the internet will be filled with jokes, pranks, fake "announcements" from companies, fun interactive activities, games, and so on. A lot of these can be quite clever and interesting so I think posting about them in general is fine, but in the interest of preventing them from completely taking over Tildes, let's try to keep as many of them restricted to this thread as possible. Ideally, a separate top-level comment for each individual item would be good.

      If something particularly discussion-worthy comes up (like an ARG or activity that a lot of people want to talk about), a separate thread is reasonable, but please make sure it has the "april fools day" tag. That way, if anyone wants to avoid seeing the April Fools' Day threads, they can use the topic tag filters and filter that tag out.

      I'm going to use the "official" styling for this topic (that's usually only for ~tildes.official topics) to make it stand out more to try to encourage people to notice it. If you notice people making individual topics for April Fools' Day things that don't really warrant their own topic, please (nicely) encourage them to delete and post in here instead.
