“Write like nobody’s reading”
These days it’s vital for a writer to read the news on international politics. If you read them carefully between the lines, combine the sources coming from all interested parties and deconstruct them down to the true meaning, it is such a great source of inspiration on multi-level lies, deceit, and disinformation, that most likely you’ll feel like still at a kindergarten level with all your sophisticated plots, well beyond your most vivid imagination. Truly educational experience.
The more I write – the more interesting dreams I have.

Why, despite all the brouhaha about the blockchain technology, we are still not awash in good and useful blockchain based apps? Because removing the intermediaries and relinquishing control doesn’t go well with any of the business models.
Facebook has just removed my own post in my own Facebook feed saying that it is spam. I know that they are eagerly trying to manipulate everything, but this is way over the top already. What is the next sane social networking platform after Facebook, anyone?
