The Sat Standard - October 31st, 2020

Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
It's the 12th anniversary of the Bitcoin Whitepaper being introduced to the world and 503rd anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to a church door. Both documents changed the course of history forever. Luther's 95 Theses were enabled by the printing press and Satoshi's whitepaper was enabled by the Internet and private/public key encryption. These technologies shift the leverage of power back towards the individual and away from the Church/State. We are lucky to be alive at this point in time.

Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
Talk is cheap.

Letting the 24/7 news cycle of outrage and fear influence your day to day decisions is a disservice to yourself and those you care about.
