This is but a cozy new year chat between your best friends Josh and Andy
We talk beards, sartorialism, weird Chinese social stuff, and Anglo-Saxonry.
And as ever: manly predictions for the New Year.
This week we speak with Tlon cofounder and CEO Galen Wolfe-Pauly. We discuss his design theory, how his Urbit vision has changed over the years, and running a company in the Age of Covid. Per community request, we stage an intervention over his frankly alarming level of tofu fanaticism.
This week we speak with ~finnem, finance maven from a secret haven in the land of guns, chocolate, and sausage respecting. The lady talks to us about the possible use cases of Urbit for making bank. No, for making a bank. A Swiss bank, which everyone knows is the best sort.
This week we speak with ~mallus-fabres, who is both an actual Young Person and a Real Live Woman on Urbit.

You can be the judge of whether we, as a society, will allow them to keep it up or if this mad experiment has gone on quite long enough, thank you.
A number of sites and persons affiliated with Urbit can be found on the old web. There are Urbit boddhisatvas out there on Twitter and elsewhere directing the wayward souls of Web 2 toward Enlightenment.
We speak this week with Rob, known around Urbit as ~mocrux-nomdep, who is CSO of dcSpark, developer of blockchain, the Flint wallet, and Urbit Visor.

We discuss how Urbit’s first… Continue reading Episode 023: Opening a man’s %gora box
The Plan The Urbit Foundation’s current timeline places it on a trajectory to formally separate from Tlon in early 2022. According to Josh Lehman (speaking in a recent Developer Call), paperwork has just been filed to start the process of forming in the Caymans following months of research by Tlon COO Erik Newton. Next steps… Continue reading Spinning Off the Foundation
This week we speak with Justin Murphy, who has brought his OtherLife community and work increasingly to Urbit. We discuss Assembly, arranging marriages, leaving academia, the future of the Life of the Mind, and Justin’s version of Urbit Futurism.
This week we speak with Tlon COO Eric Newton, otherwise known on Urbit as ~patnes-rigtyn. Erik is a ‘reformed lawyer’ who found that making money facilitating divorces left him feeling dissatisfied with life.
