here’s your weekly dose of treats 💌
a weekly list of goodies, ideas, pieces of research, principles, models, and other random stuff curated by Robert

fiery stuff I've been ingesting
  1. This is probably one of the most important blog posts I read this year: What will I be working on (and be relevant) for the next 50 years of my life?
  2. This is what an Obsessive Sociopath looks like.
  3. Pragmatic Imagination is a small book that presents a valuable resource for navigating our broadly connected, rapidly changing, and radically contingent world.
  4. Introducing the Icelandverse
  5. Sand physics is unsolved and super hard.
  6. Neuroscience: How much has changed this year
  7. Web 3.0 reading list.
  8. ‘We’re all fighting the giant’: Gig workers around the world are finally organizing 
  9. Gatik’s deployment with Walmart in the state represents the first time that an autonomous trucking company has removed the safety driver from a commercial delivery route on the middle mile anywhere in the world. 
  10. A farm under solar panels. Also - What elements does a plant need to grow?
  11. The burnout society.
  12. I programmed some creatures. They Evolved. This is a report of a software project that created the conditions for evolution in an attempt to learn something about how evolution works in nature. This is for the programmer looking for ideas for interdisciplinary programming projects, or for anyone interested in how evolution and natural selection work. 
  13. World’s first living robots “Xenobots” can now reproduce. These are alive in the technical sense. They are not organisms capable of surviving on their own or replicating without outside assistance.

How’re you and yours doing this week? Any major changes to your status quo, or are things fairly locked-in and predictable at the moment? I respond to every email I get—consider sending me a message and telling me a bit about yourself and what’s been up in your world.
