The Vanmoof looks like a solid piece of bike, wish you could get that service with other bikes. I guess I'll try to fit a GPS tracker on my next bike, might act as a deterrent as well.

Thanks, Merry New Year to you too (:

I thoroughly enjoyed Jamie Bartlett's podcast 'The Missing Crypto Queen'.

The 8 episodes pulls at the loose strings behind the 'crypto currency' OneCoin, and is a great example of investigate journalism in podcast form.

Laville

2 min read

One of my top music discoveries of 2019 was the soul singer Laville from North London. He performed at a concert I went to that also featured Carlton Jumel Smith, and The Soul Steppers of Brighton. I had bought the tickets based on Songkick's supreme concert notification service telling me that Carlton Jumel Smith was playing. His debut album, 1634 Lexington Avenue, is worth checking out if you are into the R&B/soul sound of Daptone Records. I thought Carlton Jumel Smith was appearing as the headline, but it was of a showcase of soul performers put together by Global:Soul, and it was Laville who closed out the night.

I know absolutely nothing about Laville, except that he had great stage presence, was really friendly, and you could tell he loved what he was doing, and that he felt at home at the Camden venue where he performed, The Jazz Café. His voice and lyrical qualities speak for themselves when you listen to his music. 

His debut album "The Wanderer" came out earlier this year on the Acid Jazz label (Thirty One is the single), and it's an album well worth a listen. Besides his own original songs, it features a great rendition of Bobby Caldwell's "What you won't do for love".

@vesterby @pedrodias Indeed, but airlines wouldn't be able to sell as many priority deals if they make boarding too painless, I guess.

So I'm guessing, the reason why we have been trying to, and still are trying, is because humans at gates find it hard to comply. It's easy to confirm on any flight (:

easyJet and Gatwick airport has been trialling a new boarding process: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/business-50214631. "One challenge in any controlled boarding process is our ability to communicate the pattern to passengers and the willingness of passengers to comply."

Result is that nobody needs to wonder about who is boarding when from where and in which order. I should've taken some photos, but boarding went so fast I didn't have time to get some. Everybody liked that.

Jonas Voss

Schiphol provided an example of good boarding process. Area at gate big enough to accommodate all passengers. Clearly marked lines for priority and regular mortal flyers, and finally, info over PA about boarding procedure 10mins in advance. This was a @klm flight.

Really like the new look on your site Neil, well done! 🎉 (:
