I'm launching my new disruptive venture today: "Startup Decelerator".
If you are the lucky selected applicant, you are allowed to give me 10,000 AUD for me to tell you to do nothing except think about the possible negative consequences of the technology you are currently developing, for four weeks. Just sit around, think about it, maybe read a book that has nothing to do with what you're working on, drink lots of water, sleep well and do some gardening too.

The flimsy roadside restaurants and old timber village houses anticipate the passing of things in a strange habit of becoming permanent.

Blockchain? Psh, back in my day a blockchain was a weird necklace that some of the artsy/hippie types from my high school would make that had their name or some weird cutesy thing on it.

Cursed be they (ISPs and endusers alike) who set a 2,4 GHz wifi AP to "odd" channel settings (other than 1,6 or 11), thus polluting the whole band for everyone else (I suspect TalkTalk deliver their routers like this out of the box as this seems to be a common thing with TalkTalk default SSIDs)

Welcome to the dystopian future, where even homeless people you meet at your recycling bin have YouTube channels.
