Bitcoin is a hedge vs overengineering and giant centers of authoritarian control. Bitcoin is a bad bet, until it becomes the ideal bet. Bitcoin is a bet that localism wins in the long-run and preparing an infrastructure where localism can thrive.
I am currently in the middle of building an E-commerce store with WordPress in my downtime/free time. The first aspect I wanted to tackle was the design. I think most people think of design as a carefully crafted PSD, with a specific mobile design, and RGBA and beautifully selected fonts. The problem with this approach […]
I’ve decided that, for a bit of a fun exercise, it would be a good idea to build an ecommerce store from scratch. It would be a good exercise in knowledge, building a store using WooCommerce + some non-traditional tech stack, setting up GA, design, all that other stuff. If nothing, I gain some good […]

With the replication crisis, maybe we should be asking if PhD’s actually erode knowledge? It seems that attaching status to the pursuit of knowledge, corrupts the end result, which is meaningful research. With the publication of meaningless fluff, it serves to obfuscate the truth. The result in greater uncertainty, and less overall sure knowledge. At […]
Lately, I’ve been thinking of death, quite often. It seems closer than ever. This time of year, it really likes to come around and poke me to see how I react. This is when I graduated from high school, 5 years ago. My youth is slipping away. I’m still young. But I can see it […]
