But a list of links to things I’ve read and found interesting this week.
I’ve only ever put these kinds of links at the bottom of my weeknotes and I’m never entirely sure how useful they are to anyone. But if racial and gender biases, feminism, mental health, agile working, user research, content design, AI and “stuff Estonia is doing” are your bag then read on — enjoy!

I love this piece by Matt Edgar about his reading around the use of AI in healthcare…
A great piece about enabling access to talking therapies such as CBT for people suffering with mental health issues by Adaction and We are Snook…
Some obvious observations but put together make a compelling case for talking more time to think and rest, this post by Aytekin Tank advocates for “being lazy”
I’ve seen a few posts recently about how the role of Product Manager has expanded, this provides a good overview…
Kate Towsey is a real inspiration for me because she cares deeply about the operations side of conducting research. I can’t wait to see what comes from this #WhatisResearchOps project
Really looking forward to seeing more from Alex over the coming year as he progresses his DPhil. This post advocates for getting the data right to improve services for users, “fix the plumbing”.
A good overview about the “mature experiment” of service delivery, and where we go next, by David Eaves.

Feminism and fat shaming in this article from The Pool:
A great Github repo full of links to articles on the subject of biases and discrimination in the tech indstry.
The above 👆🏼 is an absolutely incredible resource, must read.
