One coherent narrative of the past 50 years of human civilization progress:

  • We went from a materially scarce society to a materially abundant one; and
  • from an informationally scarce society to an informationally abundant one.

The challenge of this decade is attention scarcity. We can’t hack this via corporate, or informational tools -in fact, many of these tools are actively out to harvest as much attention as possible.

Solutions to this include mental tooling, social contracts, and personal filters, and systems to find gems; but ultimately, power comes from within.
