Quote About Trusting Your Instinct in Business

You can't make sense of it looking forward; you can only do so by looking backwards. So you have to trust in your future.

You have to trust in something that will play out correctly with you navigating accordingly. Trust your gut and instinct.

New Florida Laws are all great says Richart Ruddie

Great to see all these new Florida laws coming into affect next week. They all seem sensible and helpful for a better state. One of them is holocaust education which hopefully will stop the 1 or 2 deniers that are just lunatics.

One of them is even related to e-Bikes:
The bill creates regulations governing the operation of e-bikes in the state of Florida, allowing them on streets, highways, roadways, shoulders, bicycle lanes, and bicycle or multiuse paths. Local governments still maintain authority to limit their use.

Olivine The Key to Reducing Carbon Emissions

While there are tons of variables and changes we can make in our daily habits the best solutions are ones that take the CO2 out of the environment for us and let humans interact as they previously were. In a recent Fast Company magazine article there's a non-profit in the Caribbean testing spreading a green sand like material on the sand that when the waves roll over it will start the process to reverse CO2 emissions.

We're excited for the trial and I'm looking into a potential donation to Project Vesta and encourage others to do their research as well.

Done at scale on beaches and in the shallow water on continental shelves, it could make a major difference. “If we spread olivine over 2% of the world’s shelf sea, then that will be enough to capture 100% of human emissions,” Green says.

Willem de Kooning Made Fun of Andy Warhol

At a dinner party at the end of the 1960's two of the worlds biggest artists had an interaction and well Willem de Kooning was not a fan of Andy to say the least.. He said while being intoxicated at a party: “You’re a killer of art, you’re a killer of beauty, and you’re even a killer of laughter,”


Warhol thought of art as a business not as de Kooning did. He told a New York reporter in 1969 that
“The new art is really a business,” “We want to sell shares of our company on the Wall Street stock market.”

Perhaps his thinking was what has changed and influenced art and it's capitalist approach since.

Would you buy Warhol branded linens and bed sheets today? Maybe Murakami will come out with them and Uniqlo and Muji will be the ones selling them.
