The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 19

​This week I’d like to focus on the Twitter section of the Sunday Recap. My guess is that this part of the post is often overlooked as readers seek out weightier material. While Twitter is indeed full of fluff, the Tweets found here are intended to broaden and or challenge the assumptions of the reader. Have a look, you might be pleasantly surprised by what you find.

I really enjoyed putting this week’s recap together, so much to take-in and consider. A whale of a week perhaps not yet in price but in import. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. As always looking forward to your suggestions and comments.

Note on Sources:

Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares / TIMM and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon. The aim is a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than news. Though I try to keep the sources current – I’ll reference these articles and podcasts etc. as I encounter them – they may have been published just a couple of days ago or in some cases quite a bit earlier.
