The book recommendations I gathered from the Fediverse are way better in quality than Goodreads could ever offer with its algorithms.
The world now has yet another book reviewer!
Wrote my first book review+summary for the book - Utopia for Realists.
Also contains my own rants and opinions clearly marked out.
Thanks to @judeswae for pointing me to Rutger Bregman's work.
Planning to read 3 books this month
1. Utopia for Realists - Rutger Bregman
2. Walkaway - Cory Doctorow
3. The Age of Surveillance Capitalism - Shoshana Zuboff
Hope I'll also have the patience to write summaries and reviews of the #books.
Somebody make a federated Goodreads alternative please!
How to run "disruptive" "unicorn" #startups in the digital age
- create free and addictive stuff
- acquire millions of real or fake users
- burn investor money
- make no profits
- forget about why you wanted to start a company and "pivot"
- make sure you're a monopoly in your sector
and most importantly
- ensure your venture capitalists have a 100x or 1000x RoI at any cost to people, society or environment

I just realized that I've read one of his books earlier. It's called "Program or be Programmed".
Was listening to Douglas Rushkoff's podcast called "Team Human" for a couple of days and decided to read one of his books.
Started with Life Inc. Bought a physical copy so that I can place it in the office library after reading.
I'm a bit conflicted between eco-friendliness and sharability of books.
I like how Cory Doctorow licenses his books under Creative Commons. You can share them freely.
Idealist, technologist and general optimist.
