Government as Institutionalized Force: A Definition

19 hours ago 2 minute read Daniel Goldman $0.07 tipped

What is government? It’s not pretty. That’s for sure.   I’ve been writing about politics for the last 15 years or so. I’ve thought a lot about government, and have reached the conclusion that I don’t like it. But I haven’t really been able to define...

While people shouldn’t be overworked, the concept of the weekend and 9–5 schedules is a truly archaic tradition. Monday through Friday, 9–5. That’s how much of the world’s population spends its day working. But why? And whose 9–5? New York’s? Tokyo...

3 days ago 1 minute read Daniel Goldman $0.21 tipped

Unfortunately getting timing right when you’re releasing a product is very difficult. It’s very often that a new product fails to release right on its official release day. That was the case with the Blockchain Cuties event. It was originally schedul...

You Should Stop Assuming Your Readers Are Ignorant

3 days ago 2 minute read Daniel Goldman $0.06 tipped

See? It’s annoying when authors make assumptions about you, right? Some of my articles have titles that rely on general calls to action, but I generally don’t reference my reader in the title. I don’t like to make assumptions about my readers. But...
