This week in our selection we have EA’s got hacked, Amazon destroys unsold products, The day the dinosaurs died, Clarkson’s farm and mouldy bread, all handpicked by Csaba Berenyi.

EA got Hacked

Vice has spoken with the group that hacked into EA and stole a ton of data including source code for games. It was of course social engineering (combined with stealing slack tokens). Hackers will always try to exploit the drive to help each other within an organisation. But without that spirit, you’ll end up with bureaucracy.

Amazon Destroys Stuff

Interesting article about how Amazon seems to be destroying a very large amount of perfectly usable items, many of those are still in their unopened original packaging. I do like the service Amazon provides but this I disagree with. We are destroying the environment at an ever-increasing rate and companies must take responsibility for their actions. Also, I am sure people would buy some of those items if they knew they existed…

The Day the Dinosaurs Died – Minute by Minute

I can’t recommend the “Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell“, YouTube channel enough. They produce cartoons explaining all sorts of science. This particular one is about what happened when an asteroid hit Earth and killed off almost all life and ending the era of Dinosaurs.

Clarkson’s Farm

I don’t really follow anything Jeremy Clarkson does. Recently a friend recommended watching his journey into farming. And I have to say I found it quite enjoyable. My family’s background is farming in Hungary. Although I never took part in it in earnest I share a fondness to nature and growing things. I was surprised to see how the story progressed and provided a feel-good yet somewhat sobering view at farming and the state of nature, insects, farming, climate effects.

Never Eat the Clean Side of Anything Mouldy

Except if it is cheese and even then only when it’s safe. Most of the mould is not visible and you may end up being properly sick.

This is a post in the Last Week in 5 Links series. We share a lot of interesting videos, articles and other types of content in our internal chat. We thought some of the info we come across could come in handy for others too. So each week we post five of the links we shared between ourselves in the previously selected by one of our team.

If you have any comments, ideas or personal experiences, feel free to share with us. We are curious to hear new ideas, solutions, and perspectives regarding the above. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media!
