Sobering (and inspiring) new TED talk from my old FEED colleague on the threat climate change poses to our food systems.

Steven Johnson: «La piratería fue una empresa libertaria». El tópico «se lee como una novela» se cumple en «Un pirata contra el capital», de Steven Johnson, que analiza los albores de la economía global a través de la peripecia del pirata Henry Every.

Making all public colleges and universities tuition-free would cost $70 billion. Which is more important?

100% agreed. Though in my ideal high school curriculum, stats/probability would be a central part of a required course on decision-making. (Required courses should be organized around real-world skills, not academic disciplines.)

I feel like Biden needs to demand that Trump agree now not to seek asylum abroad if he loses the election.

If we want to have bookstores when this is over, we have to support them now.

Is there a betting market for whether Trump ends up living in exile somewhere in the next few years? Russia might be too obvious, but it's always seemed like a genuine possibility to me that he would end up somewhere outside the US, mostly to avoid what was headed his way in NY.

I can't stop watching this. He somehow thinks it makes the entirely fictitious story about the Nobel prize *better* if he drops in a reference to ACTUAL floods in Iowa, like he's deftly playing to the crowd. ("How dare your crops get in the way of my imaginary prize?")

Biden campaign has cash on hand that almost equals exactly what President Trump owes to unknown note holders.

More and more these rallies confirm an insight that had early on: that the whole Trump presidency has been the most absurdly circuitous path to a career as a Vegas insult comic, which is clearly the job that Trump actually wants.

I’ve spent time with Amy McGrath. Confidence. Toughness. Guts. Smarts. Leadership. It’s time to send Mitch McConnell packing, KENTUCKY. Listen to this...

Wow. The rise of assisted/algorithmic ways of spreading info in the social media age is probably just as significant as the shift from open to closed standards. It was harder to make something viral in Web 1.0. Twitter seems to be implying that friction was a feature not a bug.

"California is gonna have to ration water. You wanna know why? Because they send millions of gallons of water out to sea, out to the Pacific. Because they want to take care of certain little tiny fish, that aren't doing very well without water." -- Trump
