Aloha,

Here are some links I think are worth sharing.

  1. ℹ️ A fascinating introduction to Decentralized Identity. Could we record in an anonymous way all of human history with such a system?
  2. ℹ️?? De l’importance de la souveraineté technologique: Le siège de l’Union Africaine espionné par la Chine pendant 5 ans.
  3. ? This week was all about Chassol’s magnificent ultrascores , Wooden Shjips’ psychedelic rock, and Canshaker Pi’s indie rock.
  4. ℹ️ A portable DNA sequencer for less than 1000$. How many years until we can all get one and get our DNA analyzed at home?
  5. ? If you are a freelancer, deciding what to charge a client is always difficult. HackerNews comments are worth the read.
  6. ?‍? Patchwork, a decentralized messaging and sharing app built on top of Secure Scuttlebutt.
  7. ? Pursuing perfection is detrimental to you and your work. Accept good enough, and show your work more often!
