RT emollick: Survivorship bias really messes with our minds. If you read about college dropouts becoming unicorn founders, you are willing to bet that they outperform graduates (they don't!) & create elaborate justifications. The diagrams are worth time to understand.

This is the Mastadon server. started in 1999 as a community of likeminded people interested in open discourse about technology, arts, culture, and a better world. The domain is inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's Combine Monogram. We got inspired, around 1994, by Monogram through the documentary series "The Shock of the New" where Robert Hughes discusses pop art and its influences on modern culture. The community around has continued a sort of Flex Seminar through online forums and other activities over the years.
