readinglist – Ta-Nehisi Coates

No tags Permalink

#readinglist Ta-Nehisi Coates. I've been thinking a lot about how to talk to my son about race. I've never liked the construct of race. Strikes me as a fairly arbitrary framework for labeling and compartmentalizing people into neat categories of Us and Other, and setting up an opportunity for exploiting this with fear and scapegoating.

Feeling OK with just Feeling OK

Important to note about these videos. I am not a runner or really any super athlete. I'm just a guy with a pair of running shoes who can (on most days) turn off the inner dialogue that tries to convince us to settle for "feeling ok with just feeling ok". We all have those voices, and ...

Notes on Bitcoin: Disruptions

(This is mostly derived/combined from several emails I sent to a couple people, both professional investors, to spark a conversation about bitcoin.

Great tools like Wordpress made it easier ...
