    I see you got listed in this article.

    You want blow your brain out? The old shit is still the most relevant. Johnathan Beller: Cinematic Mode of Production

    Will explain what's happening to design for you. Why all siloed experiences are blending. Bigger and better attractions to capture your gaze and hold it. And turn that into dollars. That's why games are not games, movies are not movies. The confluence of media is happening because all we do is optical labor. and attention is capital. Even if Verge says the attention economy is dead because of "the immersion economy." You know what that is; a buzzword for somebody's career. Attention is the gateway to discretionary dollars. It's the first and last part of every transaction, and the game now is how to hold it long enough to give you a transformational experience that goes beyond the products and services they sell to make the brand indispensable to your life so they can maximize LTV. You know all of this.

    A macro trend is driving this. That's a good book that nobody cares about. It's still an augur.

    Good advice. From an information Don.

    It's actually a hole. Get smart friends to do the curation for you. I used to sit in front of Google reader when that was still a thing and I read everything.

    You will become the information Don and everybody will use you. Take it from me, stop this stupid habit; it is a time vampire.

    I'm sure you have ideas about why it's not. Not here to even have a discussion about it. I'm 36 now. In my experience, that one thing you read will not change a thing. Just do. Stop reading. You have enough.

    Their reading skills are not good and they can't pay attention.

    Basically the response to this should be stop this. But let's go on and see how dumb we can possibly make people.

    wasn't this called the startup genome project some years ago? What happened to that?

    I'm looking for some leadership right now at Grin. Google Mimblewimble and click news. I will write a post on it today and publish here tomorrow, but you can come now. It just launched and you will be one of the few designers there with me. I am fighting for our home there. You know how it is with engineer dominated spaces. And these are the most brilliant people in the space. Everybody will come to Grin. You can help me with the culture there. We must have the best everything. If interested, jump into Gitter > Grin/design. Come support my argument and lets balance them out so we can bring this to the world.

    I am the second biggest critic of Grin. The fact that I joined is amazing to me. I know what the issues are, and that is why we need everybody to come. Talk soon. PM me on Gitter. Do not miss this. It is not cryptocurrency Moon Lambo bullshit. This is third generation bitcoin by some original people who created it. This is their second attempt at creating digital cash. You can be there at the beginning. See you there.
