  • At Wired, David Pierce mourns the standalone iPod, an innovative music-changing technology in its time now being phased out.
  • Catherine McIntyre at MacLean’s describes how birding is becoming hip among young urbanites, in Toronto and across Canada.
  • Open Democracy looks at how Estonia is pioneering e-residency and virtual citizenship schemes.
