Peoplenomics Subscriber Update (Public)

In Saturday’s Peoplenomics column, I wondered aloud about the oneironaut experience I had Friday night that involved a building collapse.  Last item in the PN Saturday report. So, as part of my follow-up, here may be the “building collapse” with...

“The 100-Year Toaster” (Ch.5 of book)

Survivors can’t rule out famine. Although what will really happen in the long-term is out of everyone’s reach, if we are to transition out of a less monetized existence, there will be widespread social risk.  One of the largest of these is “food...

Prepping: Your “500-Hour Skill Sets”

Now and then I get into conversations with my son about his next visit down here…which may come during summer, but hopefully September after the heat breaks. The reason?  It will be a fine time to work on a couple of his “500-hour skills.”  You see,...
