Julia Klöckner is a German politician for CDU (the ruling right-wing "conservative" party) on a road trip during this election campaign. Behold the arrival of the cool and climate-aware electric car prop.

If you took a drink every time an economist used "network effects" to explain why Big Tech is so big, you'd get very, very drunk.
To be fair to economists, network effects *are* important to the Big Tech story.
A system is said to have network effects if it gets better when more people use it. That certainly describes Facebook - you join FB because of the friends that are already there, and then someone else joins because you're there.
@Gargron Wow, just downloaded your new iOS app and so far I really like it... clean, easy, straight-forward -- I think this can really help to onboard new users to the Mastodon universe.
Why is #Switzerland the top country from which the state of #Delaware imports stuff? Would love for someone to dig deeper into this… does this include (financial) services imports? Or is this due to the pharmaceutical companies importing through Delaware? (And, similarly, why is Switzerland #Nevada’s top #export market?)
Hm. Irgendwas passt hier beim #SRF nicht so zusammen für mich…
#MarketCap vs #GDP? Come on, #VisualCapitalist, you can do better: comparing market cap to GDP is so stupid… one is a stock and the other a flow measure, you should know that. Comparing revenues to GDP might make (a little) more sense, but of course it wouldn’t generate nearly as impressive maps…
I just listened to the #Bloomberg #OddLots podcast episode on trucking in the US. Fascinating interview, but what I would have asked: can the lack of economies of scale be due to regulation? They allude to it: big companies need to follow the law to the letter and get sued all the time (=costly), while smaller operators can maybe take some shortcuts and thus be cheaper?
Huh. Hat man sich bei der #NZZ bisher einfach immer genommen, was man haben wollte?
