Interesting stuff

  1. Listen: The nitty-gritty of small town, bottom up (self-) governance
  2. Listen: What’s a “good” education?
  3. Hahaha! An NFT of Jack Dorsey’s first tweet sold for $2.9 million in March 2021. It was re-listed for sale for $48 million, but only got a bid of $280. That’s a 99.999% drop in “value”. RIP NFTs 😉
  4. Listen: Is the U.S. Really Less Corrupt Than China — and How About Russia?
  5. Read: Heard of data colonialism? Here’s an example: “Worldcoin promises a fairly-distributed, cryptocurrency-based universal basic income. So far all it’s done is build a biometric database from the bodies of the poor.
  6. Listen: A Ukrainian on how the West is failing and (read) how the rest of the world might kinda support Putin (due to Western hypocrisy among other things).
  7. Read: Rising groundwater (fed by rising sea-levels) is going to screw up so much infrastructure!
  8. Read: Making friends with flooding 🙂
  9. Capitalists are entering the (US) housing market, and it’s looking like they are going to use market power to suck profits (=raise prices) out of people’s pockets. Related: Americans are moving away from climate risks (e.g., wild fires), so expect rising imbalances of supply and demand.
  10. Money! In praise of USD (cash), digital money is exciting, and digital money will destroy your life.
