Another gruesome screw-up in an execution chamber in Oklahoma: a man waits forty minutes to die and another prisoner, due for execution on the same day, wins two more weeks of agony while officials decides how they’ll kill him. Meanwhile, an Egyptian court hands down mass death sentences. The death penalty is barbaric and immoral and degrades us all while it still exists - in China, Iran, Saudi Arabia - and in the United States. But, despite the knee-jerk bleating from some in the media and legislature, it will never return in Britain. We don’t have the stomach for it.
Jelly is a new visual Q&A app from Biz Stone, Twitter founder. Quora+Instagram. It’s a few days old and so far there’s plenty of Bay area billionaire bullshit (skiing, fine wines, Teslas…) from the startup jockeys and VCs who’ve hacked it but there’s also plenty of creativity and experimentation and generosity. I’m hugely enjoying it. So what will you find on Jelly?
