1/ "What happens when the internet gets switched off?" Despite the best hopes of many salty nocoiners, a surprising number of great engineers have been thinking about how to keep bitcoin running in offline environments. youtu.be/yiT_l_XbXnM
This answers the question about how to access the Bitcoin network when there's a complete internet shutdown. Mind blowing stuff, should read, re-read and go down the rabbit hole if one's financial existence depends on Bitcoin.
A theory, not strongly held. India's advantage vs China on web3 may be that it won't ban it. Its advantage vs the US may be that it doesn't have legacy web2 incumbents.

Excellent exploration of why some periods have way more creatives and innovators than others using interesting historical cases. read halfway through, come back later.
We really should be in the middle of a golden age of productivity. Within living memory, computers did not exist. Photocopiers did not exist. *Backspace* did not exist. You had to type it all by hand.
1/ While the resumption of #Bitcoin's bull market is a cause for optimism, anyone who cares about Bitcoin should be aware that its adversaries are attempting a major attack on the Bitcoin ecosystem as you read this. Thread 👇

Every financial transaction in every app will eventually give you a link to a block explorer as a universal receipt. This is the obvious way to merge accounting across multiple apps.

Kids benefit from building skills that seem like a waste of time in the present, even though they’ll be incredibly valuable in the future. Current example: Video game design
Homeschooling is the trend I’m most bullish on relative to how little attention it receives. Institutional trust is falling, online education is getting better fast, smartphones are getting cheaper, and it’s getting easier for parents to team up and educate their kids together.
