fiery stuff I've been ingesting

  5. Why Finland’s schools outperform most others across the developed world
  6. Linus defends Apple’s $1000 monitor stands. How pricing works.
  7. How much did the domain name cost?
  8. The companies that help people vanish in Japan.

If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

It's strange that student debt is higher than ever at the same time that educating oneself is easier than ever.

@JonErlichman What if all billionaires around the world donate 1 billion to end world hunger? That is 13 trillion dollars. They would still be billionaires.

@heidi_vdh @JonErlichman Spending $50 a day per person that lives in extreme poverty (700 mill), you will feed them for only over a year. Not counting health spending.
Giving away money will never solve the problem, only job creating, fair trade, education and freedom can create a real lasting effect.

we should be spending 1h/day specifically training to resist hyperpalatable food; learning how to mourn and heal after the death of a loved one instead of getting depression; how to negotiate and do politics

The consumer and the maker
The consumer and the maker
You need someone to build the things you require, the things you are going to consume. This is more than an observation. Someone needs to write the books. With so many people consuming, there are fewer and fewer people creating.

Thank you for reading!
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.
