i cant recommend dan ws postcards from a supply

I can’t recommend Dan W’s ’Postcards from a Supply Chain’ enough.  I mean, I already love this stuff - it’s about global commerce, and the nitty gritty of shipping and ships and factories and boxes and etc.  But the Postcards are a great, human-readable, no-experience-required intro to these topics, in the form of a travelogue. The one from today is about twistlocks; the interchangeable connectors that snap containers to each other (and to trains and trucks and stuff). Subscribe already!
