Interesting stuff

  1. Read: Americans don’t have a lack of free speech, they have a lack of listening.
  2. Lex Fridman’s podcasts are really long (sometimes 3-4 hours), but these are interesting:
  3. Listen to how police used the blockchain to identify and arrest dozens of men abusing children (and sharing videos of that abuse). A little less of that disgusting evil.
  4. Read: Wanna save the environment? Empower indigenous people to protect (and own) their traditional lands. (I’m seeing examples of why this is necessary in the southern African countries I am visiting, where aggressive locals displaced hunter-gatherers and colonizers destroyed everything to extract resources.
  5. Read: The implications of tech mayhem in 2022.
  6. Low-tech Magazine has a lot of deep, insightful stories:
  7. How novelists are using ChatGPT (AI) to write
  8. Watch: The great places destroyed by suburbia
  9. Listen: Freakonomics rediscovers the “real” Adam Smith

  1. The link for #10 goes to freakonomics as well. The link for #1 goes to endlessly regurgitated rubbish.

    1. Thanks!

      #1 seems fine. #10 was a dupe and I can’t remember where it was supposed to go 🙁

      1. Hmmm, this has been bothering so I’ll throw it out there. You have a good blog, you post good links, that economist article is atrocious and old hack. What gives?

        1. Well, we disagree. Their point — we don’t lack speech but listening — is correct IMO. What’s atrocious?
