It Zucks! By John Lanchester.
Everyone in the world is hoping for one thing.
That nobody notices they don’t belong.
Everyone in the world suffers from imposter syndrome sooner or later.
I can guarantee you, no matter what stage you reach in your life, you’ll be desperately asking yourself how your peers are still ignorant to the fact that you don’t know what the fuck you’re doing.
I’m sitting here writing this article and I’m starting to find a little clarity. Starting to understand why this thing is so hard. This game of entrepreneurship. Shit, this game of life. It’s because the real answer is really found when you’re pulling from opposite directions. I’m sitting here wondering and I just return to the same question which is why? Why, why, why?
When it comes to bench-racing electric vehicles, the kilowatt-hour is king. And over in Switzerland, there's an EV that will make Tesla's P100Ds look positively puny. But this is no carbon-fiber hypercar, and it's never going set any records for 0-60 times or the standing quarter. No, this is an altogether more practical creation that's meant to work for a living.

Confirming it would appeal against the decision, Uber said it showed the world "far from being open, London is closed to innovative companies".
Is there a better fit for virtual reality than the humble racing game? Ever since sampling iRacing with an Oculus Rift I've sworn by the pairing, and now have a dedicated set-up at home. There's something sublime about how the technology fits the genre – how a fixed cockpit works so well within the limitations of contemporary VR, and how a decent steering wheel solves in an instant the sometimes fuzzy control problem that people are still trying to solve elsewhere.
