What a story! And what a life! From a legend in Nepal’s highest peaks to selling outdoor gear at Tent & Trails, two blocks away from the World Trade Center. From super dangerous amazing climbs to living in Queens with a growing family not having to worry about staying alive.
It’s a fascinating read…I have no desire to do what these climbers do, no way!
This was written by Steve Job’s daughter. Obviously. There have been many things written about the guy of course. But reading it I could not help but think the dude was such a mega jerk to people around him. He mellowed later in life but still…You will learn some things here you did not know. Like I did.
Don’t be such a jerk to your kids all right?
Houston, we have a problem!
A sobering and alarming read on what we are being faced with…
“All over the world, governments are fashioning digital hate mobs to squelch dissent”.
In response to revolutions and social movements launched on Twitter and Facebook, national governments initially censored content, blocked access to social media and used surveillance technology to monitor their citizens. But it turned out to be far more effective to simply inundate the platforms with a torrent of disinformation and anonymized threats—what the researchers dubbed a strategy of “information abundance” made possible by the rapid spread of social media.
I always wanted to learn where some of these terms came from! For example: “Out of left field”, “throw in the towel”, “back to square one”‘ and more!
I had no idea there were big time gangsters in the Netherlands! And this is a fascinating story of a very dysfunctional Dutch family and how a son went astray and was set up by his own sister. Who is now hiding and trying to stay alive for the rest of her life.
Fascinating read and a glimpse in the Dutch underworld.
And I leave you with this…Instagram at its finest 😉
