I’m at a conference this week so this space may or may not fill out. Hopefully it will.
- The US is considering dropping the penny. I like having less coins to deal with personally.
- Viber joins Whatsapp and Threema (and others) in offering end-to-end encryption. There implimentation seems to be a bit better than Whatsapp’s. Threema is still my preferred app for all they offer.
- The Burglar’s Guide To The City looks to be a fascinating read. It’s now on my wishlist.
- I liked this article on things learned from missionaries. If I were to highlight one from the list, it’d be #8 on just how important local pastor’s support of mission work is. A church’s engagement tends to hinge on this.
- I thought this was fascinating too: a charity is giving 6000 people in Kenya a UBI for 10 years. I’m really curious to see how that experiment turns out.
- I really enjoy the longevity and durability of quality leather products. Here’s a very basic 101 on leather and what the different types are. If you get full grain it will last forever; if you get bonded it will fall apart in a year. I just wish the full grain products weren’t so expensive.
