Nebula #18

Rigel and the Witch Head Nebula by Mario Cogo (Galax Lux)

In case you lived under a rock for the past few weeks, let me break the news for you: a 72 year old man separates children from their parents and locks them up in internment camps. Sometimes it’s really hard not to think this world is completely fucked up. We take borders as granted. But it’s only our current way of organizing us as human that make borders. The question is here: How should we organize ourselves to collectively achieve a higher level of freedom? I think the web was one answer, but is now ultimately working against us. I now hope a greater privacy and decentralization movement will help us in our quest.

1. 📺 Back in the days, the US War Department released educational video to tell Americans not to fall for fascist rhetoric. It was in 1943, and Donald Trump wasn’t born at that time.

2. 📖 Have you read the Discworld? No ? You want to but you don’t know where to start? Here’s the Discworld Reading Order Guide 3.0 !

3. ❤️ Food is one of the most powerful link between cultures and people. I had the chance to eat at a restaurant participating in the Refugee Food Festival. There might be an edition in your town. And if there isn’t one, you can organize one in your city thanks to their methodology kit.

4. 😂 The Onion has declared war on Mark Zuckerberg and it’s SAVAGE.

5. 🎧 Get your fix of soulful abstract hip-hop with Alone Together by Karriem Riggins.

Kindness,

Marc

Aloha,

In this week edition: Urban Music, VR Graffiti, How Honor affects our brain, Facebook inexorable decline, an origami simulator, and decentralization.

  1. ? NAS Performs “The World Is Yours” with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center.
  2. ℹ️ Honor as a cultural mindset affects cognition . Activating honor improve performances in hierarchical thinking, but not in tasks requiring nominal thinking. Honor is mentally spatially located upwards and to the right.
  3. ? If, like me, you are into warm and soulful house music, you will dig the vibes of Seven Davis Jr. Boiler Room set. Sweet disco love songs mix by Dj Spinna.
  4. ?‍???‍? Some impressive GIFs of VR graffiti using this very cool-looking video game available on Steam.
  5. ℹ️ German court rules Facebook use of personal data illegal and Facebook might have lost around 2.8 million U.S. users under 25 last year..
  6. ?‍? A very cool Origami Simulator.
  7. ? The decentralized future is coming and it will change our lives in more ways than the web did.

Thanks for reading!

Marc
