I just started reading Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It by Chris Voss.📚

Review of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One
I did not realize that there is a prequel to His dark materials but after I found out I needed to read La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One by Philip Pullman📚at once.

Pl@ntNet (pronounced plant-net) is the only social app that always makes me happier. Likened to Shazam for plants, it was developed a decade ago by a consortium of computer science and botanical research institutions in France. In almost every way, Pl@ntNet is unlike other social networks.
Dark Forest of the Internet is an exciting idea on the further development of the internet. However, it is also in opposition to the IndieWeb, as what you write on your blog is public.
