What’s with Amazon in the space data game? We learned about “Amazon’s Plan to Profit from Space Data” from the Daily Herald. Here’s the plan: “Rather than build its own satellite dishes and ground stations, the company has brokered an exclusive “multiyear strategic business agreement” with Bethesda-based defense contractor Lockheed Martin, which manufactures and operates satellites for the U.S. military.” Useful for policeware and intelware use cases, don’t you think? Nah.

My book’s conclusion at the higher, systemic level is that it’s critical for people today to understand that we’re not going to be able to reform the current system as its structured and that we’re going to have to radically de-centralize power, wealth and capital.

I am quite sure WeWork overpaid for MeetUp, a very unethical company controlled by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL, the Zionist secret police and official censors). The “leadership” of MeetUp probably recognized that on the one hand there are superior alternatives to MeetUp now (see below) and on the other, their brand shits now in the aftermath of their waiving fees for the 1,087 #RESIST MeetUps co-sponsored by the ADL while CANCELLING the $77,000 paid #UNRIG professional network (1 in each Congressional District).
