- Nice article about building governance layers into platforms. Following Elinor Ostrom's 8 principles for managing a commons.

Hometown says on its wiki: "Also, if Hometown is going to be a universal reader, you're going to need better control over organizing your feeds."

Listened: Can the US avoid another Trump?
- Sad the part where they said Trump wouldn't have been elected if Obama hadn't. That the election of a Black man scared the right and moved them further rightwards.
- Also how Trump's election followed essentially a right-wing populist playbook - almost identical to Viktor Orbán.
