Everyone's got a novel inside of them. Let's help each other write it.

channel I'd like to re-focus my efforts on publishing long-form articles espousing my perspectives; above are four screenshots of my "outstanding drafts" list (much longer than I anticipated!) — of the list, which titles appear interesting? I'm hoping for as many responses as possible, so take a look and chime in on what you'd like to see more of!

I'm also looking for editors — if a particular topic is something you feel strongly about, or want to know more about, say so!

Eric I am very interested in The coming Death of Bitcoin Miners, because I just got into mining :slightly_smiling_face: and also Bitcoin Development Models!!!! there are my suggestions, even though there are many many interesting topics on your list.

martindale

Awesome, thanks! That's "dearth", by the way, as in an "scarcity, famine; an inadequate supply"
