keti koti, end of slavery
Today, July 1, is "Keti Koti", celebrating the end of slavery in the Netherlands. The Dutch generally did not bring slaves to Dutch soil, but many Dutch traders made their fortunes abducting and selling people.
I do not feel like I should celebrate the day my culture/my ancestors stopped doing something awful, but this festival is not for me. It's for the people for whom this day meant freedom.

There's a limited view of economic growth being inherently linked to growth of consumption of resources and pollution. It's not true.

Opponents of drastic CO2 reduction act as if it will inevitably harm economic growth, but it's not as simple as that.

With #XR opening up the possibility of positive environmental and social change. The big challange is to get individuals to move past the eco feel good and into the hard social issues were the real power for destruction/creativity lies.
Today's tech culture of security-uber-alles is, on the one hand, a sign of our industry growing up and becoming more mature.
On the other hand, it's also playing right into the hands of big corporations.
Small shops and hobby projects already struggle to meet our security expectations. Every time we raise that bar, projects die and the big guys have less competition.
Is Apple code signing protecting the end user? Or Apple's app store revenue and veto power?
Bit of both, probably. 🤷♂️
