Fading figure leaving along rail tracks
9th May 2019

You might have heard of this thing called “shadowban”. Allegedly, Instagram has ways to punish spammy content and counter the rise of bots, fake accounts, etc. What Instagram does is flag the suspicious accounts and consequently slash the reach and engagement that these accounts receive.

The Gatwick Fiasco. Or how the second largest and busiest airport in UK couldn’t handle a drone alert and ruined the plans of 150.000 people. Including me. I’m sure you all heard what happened a few days ago. Alerts of drones flying near the airport runway caused a shutdown of...
