This issue of Delayed Gratification casts its eye back over the months of January, February and March of this year (when there was still rain, remember?). Inside we get to look back at the beginnings of Korea's reconciliation as they fielded a unified team at the Winter Olympics, discover the challenges of rebuilding the Syrian cities of Homs and Aleppo after being reclaimed by the regime, and sift through the fallout of the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal. Elsewhere there is the Starship enterprises of Elon Musk, the students behind the 'Never Again' campaign and the eruption of Mount Mayan in the Phillippines.
Tired of news soundbites, endless Tweets and a life built upon snippets? Well, Delayed Gratification is here to slow things down, take things in, and see how the news played out over the last 3 calendar months. Great, probing, intelligent journalism combined with clever and witty infographics.
Can algorithms really change the way we vote? David Sumpter looks back at the Facebook scandal involving Cambridge Analytica to find out. Some nice use of negative space by illustrator Angus Grieg too.
