Innovation v. Government Policy


“Which is going to help you better?”

Hmm, anonymous

Addison WigginDear Reader,

Part of our reason to write to you – internet marketing – requires us to pull on your heartstrings.

We prefer not to.

Pero es lo que es. 

If you’re interested in our ideas, ideally you’ll continue to read, listen, watch and chat with your friends about.

More than ever – more than the early 2000s, more than 2008, more than the lull years before the pandemic hit, when crypto seemed to be emergent – we feel like we’re moving through a period of time, right now, where two trends are contradictory:

  1. Massive innovation: tech and science have access to tools unseen before
  2. Government policy: political strategists are striving soooo hard to control… uh, everything.

The conflict is unbecoming.

We don’t pretend to understand it.

One of the mind-benders, right now, is why tech innovators are embracing government policies and social memes that actually impede innovation. Such a fascinating topic.

C’mon. These themes are worth a discussion, at least.

You’re going to love our upcoming Wiggin Session with Mark Moss and Aleks Svetski. We dig deep into how we got here: politics v. capitalism.

In the meantime, revisit our digital nomad idea with Ronan McMahon, right here.

With Ronan, you’ll at least be able to live through the discord in an alluring locale.

We’re innovating in the international space, including real estate deals that no one else can or will have access to, especially post-pandemic, pre-monkey pox.

So it goes,

P.S. Did you see Nancy Pelosi tried to make her visit to Taiwan a gender issue?

P.P.S. This one is a bit suspect also… more Spanish started drinking out of their homes after the pandemic hit?
