Certainly there had been trouble coming. Anyone who had had any experience of wars would have seen it coming long before the afternoon that Mack ran down Morris the Florist.”
Chapter 4, The Summer Before the War, The Pushcart War by Jean Merrill
Well, it’s been a cool week. I’ve seen a bunch of friends I haven’t seen in a while.
I’ve also been super productive with writing and working on various projects. The reason I went to Berlin is chooching along too.
On Thursday I went for walk/dinner/drinks with Mr Stephen Fortune I had a great time catching up with him. We talked about: his QS work and the closing months of his PHD ahead, web3 technologies, the crypto bourgeoisie, our respective Crohn’s Disease and health, meditation / fasting, regnerative ag, warring AI’s betting on prediction markets over their climate change models. Land as Platform and the spirit world and rehaunting the west via Christianity. All in a days work to be honest with you. Fun times.
We also went for Japanese food and drank hibiscus cocktails
Had a bit of a black mirror moment at the end of our meal when our waitress asked us to rate and review her personally on tripadvisor mentioning her by name. Immediately after that, the PDQ Terminal asked me a NPS question – Totally surreal.
The other thing that happened this week:
Warren posted The Short Things over on Morning.Computer . I thought about it over breakfast and decided “challenge excepted”.
So I give you the experiment:
I want to get a few more episodes/shows under my belt before I submit the feed to all the podcatchers etc. But the direct RSS can be grabbed here.
Please send feedback though either via DMs or email. I’ve already been told to go in the direction of ‘Crypto-agri Joe Frank’
I think that instead of starting one podcast (solarpunks) why not start two?
Dipping the stacks
- People are mad at surveillance capitalism
- Russia is still the boogie man
- Idiot wing of the tory party made fools of themselves on a fishing boat
I threw for some futures earlier in the year when the space weather was good for me. One of those requests to the universe was to do more live speaking.
I thought I’d hit the Jackpot when I got asked in a back channel to speak at Re:Publica Berlin 18 well after the submission deadline had closed. This week I found out it wasn’t accepted but you can read that talk submission over on tumblr here.
I was pretty down about not being accepted to be honest with you, but within an hour of receiving the bad news the following happened.
I’d been asked to speak at peer to peer web berlin in May the same weekend that Re:Publica is on, AND received and email to speak at/attend a 2 day workshop in Rotterdam (also) in May.
So yeah, thats how the universe works I suppose.
I ain’t read shit, don’t @ me.
The new Titus Andronicus album A Productive Cough is absolutely awful. Don’t even bother with it.
What you should bother yourself with however is that Sevdaliza has a new single out called Human Nature I really like it
Her album ISON was a fav from last year. And the video for the single HUMAN is absolutely incredible
