Really humbled to have been a part of such a wonderful series of talks. Huge love to all my fellow presenters!
So last time I restocked my HRT, heart medication, and other bits at the pharmacy, they gave me different brands.
The boxes for half the things I take now look like the other half.
Meaning last week I took none of one thing and double of the other by mistake.
NO WONDER I felt like crap all week.
Also added the line:
"In 2021 I joined a radical team of polymaths and revolutionaries to put my varied, interdisciplinary skillset to good use by building a new university in the UK aiming to disrupt traditional models of higher education and bring radical change to an important yet stagnant institution."
Which sums up what I do, but I hope in a not too condescending way?
Mundane First World Problems
Most mornings I have granola with a little plant-based yoghurt for breakfast.
I used to get my granola mix from a local shop/cafe, and now that I've moved to a new city I've had to go back to buying generic.
It just doesn't hit the same.
So there's an insight into my morning routine, ruined once again by capitalism.
People keep talking about Web v3 as if it's an actual tangible thing.
It isn't. The web is what humanity makes it. It's gone from potential-tool-for-good to capitalist-nightmare-hell, and the only thing that has the power to change that is people.
No ledger, magic code, or AI will save us. Just like climate change, equality, poverty... the change has to come from humanity itself.
Building the future of education, writing things, producing things, shouting at inequality. Often found hacking at old hardware and software. 🏳️⚧️
