We Lost The Internet
  • First developed for the military, the internet wasn’t always the closed, capitalistic ecosystem that it is now.
  • Before the tech giants staked their claim on billions of users, it was a decentralized place with no custodian.
  • Now, only a handful of companies control most of the internet, using addictive content and smart algorithms.
  • They use the vast amount of user data generated every minute for building tools to predict consumer behaviour and feed their AI engines.

6 IDEAS

Why bubbles are round

Bubbles appear when a thin film (like soap water) traps gas (such as air). The molecules in the film are drawn to each other and shrink to the smallest possible area.


The smallest area that can wrap around a volume is a sphere, meaning the film will shrink to cover a sphere.

The downward spiral of overthinking

When we spend too much of our time analysing problems, we often end up with more questions than answers. Consistently overthinking can cause a range of symptoms such as insomnia, trouble concentrating and a lack of energy. In turn, it leads to further worries and finally becomes so unbearable that we look for ways to calm down.

Metacognitive strategies can help you reduce overthinking and help you realise that overthinking is within your control.

How to Get Motivated

Develop a Routine. Create a series of events that you always perform before doing a specific task.

  • Step 1: Start by doing something so easy that you can't say no to it. Your pre–game routine tells your mind, “This is what happens before I do ___.
    ”For example, In my writing routine I start by getting a glass of water. So easy, I can’t say no.
  • Step 2: Your routine should get you moving physically towards the end goal. Your mind and your motivation will follow your physical movement.
  • Step 3: Follow the same pattern every single time.
We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

Self-loathing is real and surprisingly common. We sometimes hate ourselves more than any person could. This phenomenon takes many shapes:

  1. Anticipating something bad to happen after something good has happened, with an assumption that your happiness will be followed by misery.
  2. Success resulting in feelings of guilt and anticipation of danger.
  3. Pleasant days ruined by chronic worry, panic or a sense of loss.
  4. Imagining the worst in others.
