Reading ancient history really makes you appreciate how good we have it post-enlightenment. The past is just 1000s of years of chaos and mayhem. Nazis trying to exterminate the Jews is the exception today but the norm in the past.

It's weird how I can sometimes fall into good sleep / bad sleep cycles. I get tired from the bad night of sleep so sleep really deeply the next night, feel great, but can't sleep that night restarting the cycle

"Marooned in Realtime" by Vernor Vinge (RIP) is really excellent. I really like quirky sci-fi detective stories like this, The Caves of Steel, Vimes books from Discworld, Dirk Gently, etc. Do you have any other favorites in this particular sub-genre?

New blog post: "The Rise of Protocols" — my reflections from what I've learned from Summer of Protocols. Why protocols are so important and why they're a practical skill for many of us to learn. https://bricolage.io/the-rise-of-protocols/

Ancient cultures all had big rituals around planting crops. Part of it was of course was to plead to the Gods for a good harvest but... I wonder if part of the calculation was a lot of people just wouldn't plant otherwise? Like a lot of lazy people needed a big party to get out in the sun for 2 weeks and plant?

Working on a blog post this morning on protocols — liking my summary of protocols as the CAD Software & Machine tooling for mass manufacturing good outcomes. People/orgs often create bespoke protocols for good outcomes but Capital P Protocols is how we industrialize them.

The Top Gear boys were YouTubers before YouTube. Their slogan "ambitious but rubbish" would be perfect for a YouTube trio today.

It's funny that "predicting traffic jams" from cars is held up as the test of a futurist/sci fi writer. Traffic jams of various sorts have long been common e.g. carts and animals getting to a central market square or the same queuing to get through a city gate.

AI has the densest concentration of startups all chasing the exact same markets that I've ever seen. I'm sure the hyper-competitive founders are excited by that but it's gotta make a lot of the startups feel pretty weird.
