Arundhati Roy: ‘The pandemic is a portal’

Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.

Mockoon – run mock APIs locally

“Mockoon is the easiest and quickest way to run mock APIs locally. No remote deployment, no account required, open source.”

Seriously, this app is brilliant. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it 😄
