The only place you’ll get this configuration of dudes living together is prison.
So I guess that’s good news for Andrew.
I asked 5 teachers in my network what the biggest issues are in education right now. Lack of funding and standardised testing don't allow personalised learning. Kids are falling through the cracks early. We need to rethink the factory model.
I feel like the United States would benefit from having a government agency that worked to control and prevent diseases.
There a 3 kinds of coffee drinkers
The Old School Crew - Still drinking the same sour Folgers they were served in 'Nam. Adds powdered creamer until it's beige.
The Cafe Hounds - Spend $7 on pour overs made from beans caressed by a civet cat’s anal glands. Pump it full of syrups and crave death's sweet embrace.
The Snobs - chasing the nitro cold brew cryptid high, bragging about tasting notes of dark cherry / elderflower. Subsist only on chewed beans and the abject fear in baristas' eyes.

But fuck it.
If you want it just grab it from my Dropbox.

this glorious shit is why hacker news should be preserved as a culturally important artifact.
I created a digital zine reflecting on how the internet has evolved over the past 20 years.
Packed with nostalgia for the early days of niche communities, amateur content and anonymity, it explores the current state of corporatisation, algorithms and the pressure to monetise.

The volume is deafening these days. Opinions screech out of our screens, each personality trying to outshout the other. Viral social media voices dominate, stifling anything with subtlety.
But volume doesn’t mean value.
And when everyone has to shout to be heard, fewer people will speak up.
My God - how did we get here? It's a DORK TOWER MONDAY! New strip up now, at the Mothership:
