The Revised Psychology of Human Misjudgment
Welcome to Conscious Culture, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds

And I'm sharing some amazing information this week.
At a blockchain meet-up, I learned how to build my first dapp. The Learning section this week features one of the resources a blockchain developer sent me!
