Data is Everywhere
Welcome to Conscious Culture, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds
I hope you're having a great week.
I've been removing my work from Medium and editing my past articles by adding more content to them and it's starting to pay off. Below is a look inside my ahrefs account and you can see I'm starting to show up for authority bias and reciprocity.
This week we're talking about the intellectual origins of surveillance tech, the Wonderwerk Cave, applying spaced repetition, and data being everywhere.
Feel free to hit reply and share what you liked, or disliked.
The Intellectual Origins of Surveillance Tech
“The philosophical interests of Palantir Technologies founders Peter Thiel and Alex Karp offer surprising insights into the company's origins.”
Archaeologists May Have Found The World’s Oldest Home
“Archaeologists have confirmed what might be the oldest home in hominin history. Hominins include humans and our distant evolutionary ancestors.
Called Wonderwerk Cave, it is located in the Kalahari Desert, South Africa, and shows evidence of continuous occupation for several million years. Not only that, but the cave also shows signs of the earliest evidence of the use of fire.”
Applying Spaced Repetition and Active Recall to Books to Hack Your Brain
“Active recall (also known as quizzing, testing, or retrieval) is the process by which we challenge our minds to retrieve a piece of information rather than passively reviewing or re-reading the same.”
Data is everywhere. Data is defined as “information, especially facts or numbers, collected to be examined, considered and used to help decision-making.” We're unconsciously using data all the time - you're consuming this piece of data right now.
