Interesting stuff

  1. Read: The economics of down coats (and Chinese eating)
  2. Read this very interesting post [in Dutch, so use translate as needed] about the “end of the Netherlands” via rising sea levels. Ties (who should be appearing on Jive Talking in 2022) and co-authors make the case that it’s “worth” protecting areas (due to land value) rather than abandoning them to 10s of meters of sea level rise.
  3. Watch: Balkan Beat Box has a pretty cool sound (and video)
  4. Think: Rather than install a “second brain” app to keep up with the firehose of information, maybe live with forgetting people, facts, places, photos?
  5. Read: Is the combination of conspiracy theories+”do your research”+influencers creating a new “religion”? Yes, if you take religious faith as the opposite of rational thinking. Be afraid.
  6. Read: The quest to trap carbon in stone (still way less effective than not omitted it in the first place!)
  7. Read: Amazon serves customers, Shopify serves merchants
  8. Read: Money has never felt more fake and (related) What will happen to inflation in 2022?
  9. Read: Billions of banknotes are missing. Why does nobody care?
  10. Read: Error 404 — Winter not found!
