Welcome to the 57th episode of It Depends. Hope you are doing well and staying safe.
What with Holi, me visiting my parents' place in Delhi, and a massive OKR planning explosion at the day job, writing has been on the back burner a bit these past two weeks (and the next week doesn’t look very hopeful either). I’ve been reading “The Politics of Bitcoin” by David Golumbia so perhaps I can share a summary of that - let’s see how it goes.
So this week it’s a shoutout to 54 new folks who signed up for this newsletter, and straight on to the best of the internet.
From the internet
- About 15 researchers and critics, including Molly White, Stephen Diehl, Grady Booch, have critiqued Kevin Roose’s NYT piece on cryptocurrency. An interesting, often funny, and thoroughly brutal read.
- The internet is a beautiful place. There is apparently a whole website about trunk-based development with everything explained much better and more deeply than anything else I have seen on the topic.
- Mahesh Balakrishnan is becoming a regular feature on this list. Here he is again, making Paxos simple.
That’s all for this week folks. Have a great weekend!
