Greenpill is a self-published book I released in Feb 2022 about how crypto could regenerate the world. (heavy emphasis on could, I don’t think its happening yet). The book has become an attractor for regens and over the last 18 months, I’ve been connected to 1000s of regens who have a similar vision of using web3 to fund public goods + create pro-social movements + build protopian social Read the article >>

I built and open sourced a tool called s3_disk_util last week. It's meant to help cleanup disk space on your AWS bucket. Its very similar to the linux command `du`, but for s3.

Couldn't sleep last night, so I started futzing with an experiment I've been noodling on. It's called Slack EmojiBot and I built it last night. It's a bot that adds custom emojis your slack team; inline in Slack. 🤔👌 No more putzing around in your web browser.
