1/ a truth
2/ a way to grow a new social network
i’m currently building a private social network and found this framework from chris dixon from many years ago still useful:
a. let the app allow users to create unique content to share to other social networks
b. let other users on those networks see that content and download the app
c. once enough users are on the app, build social features to lock in the network.
3/ a new ye joint
west’s video features his perspective on the state of america in 2020—a degraded culture, violent law enforcement officers, and living in a global pandemic.
mixed by dr. dre and very reminiscent of the punk vibes from yeezus.
my favorite bar is from Travis Scott:
execution, thirty states / thirty states will execute / thou shall not kill, i shall not spill
28 states in the usa still practice the death penalty. here, travis juxtaposes the u.s. state laws with one of the 10 commandments, questioning it’s morality.

6/ a quote im pondering
it’s dark because you are trying too hard. lightly child, lightly. learn to do everything lightly. yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. so throw away your baggage and go forward. there are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. that’s why you must walk so lightly. lightly my darling.
