Interesting stuff

  1. Listen to a debate on the EU’s “Green new deal,” which seems to be too little, too late to me. Why? Voters will not approve a reduction in their consumption (e.g., “flying different” rather than “flying less”)
  2. Read: Jonathan Haidt explains how social media (and its “viral” algorithms) have undermined American society and democracy.
  3. Listen to how a 1906 law (to prevent theft of Texas sand) undermines US port infrastructure.
  4. Read: Russia pays locals to attack and undermine their governments (here Slovakia) .
  5. Read: “J.R. Harris is one of the most prolific solo hikers the world has ever seen. But he’d never tell you that himself”
  6. Watch: The Clothing loop (you should do this!)
  7. Explore: How much will your area (in the US) flood due to rising sea levels and river flood risks?
  8. Read: How the Netherlands became a narco state
  9. Read: Speech by Fabio Panetta, Member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank, on the “Wild West of crypto” and why the ECB wants to regulate it.
  10. Read: How Two Internet Nemeses Became Friends (hint: they talked)
