KQED suggests the seasons are changing, and the weather is getting colder, so it’s the perfect time to get cozy with some comforting recipes. Their team recommends several books in The Fall 2020 Cookbooks Worth Your Time (and Money), including Xiaowei Wang's new book, Blockchain Chicken Farm!

From the article:

Technologist and writer Xiaowei Wang explores tech’s social and political articulations in rural China in their debut book. Wang challenges conventional assumptions about the luddite tendencies of pastoral workers with stories of farmers integrating AI to produce a perfect pig, and studies the economic and political correlations between China’s villages and globalization. The author has also included what they term “sinofuturist” recipes shaped by evolving technologies. Wang is speaking at an event later next month organized by UC Berkeley’s Center for New Media with technologist and writer An Xiao Mina. — Ruth Gebreyesus
