Global (physical) Addresses: A surprising solution

Read this post on and was blown away by how elegant the solution is for those lacking a real-world address. It looks so simple and probably isn't, but it struck me as something that is increasingly approachable for everyone given global smartphone penetration.

I really hope this gains some traction!

what3words is a global addressing system based on a grid of 57 trillion 3mx3m squares. Each square has been allocated a unique, fixed 3 word address. Poor addressing is costly & annoying in some developed countries, but around the world it hampers the growth and development of nations, ultimately costing lives.


Back in the day: when I used to skateboard.

This is one of the better skateboard shorts I've seen a while. It reminded me a grittier version of Rodney Mullen. Kilian obviously has the technical skills, but Rodney's style is unsurpassed.

I remember the days when Hannes, Reto, and I would go skateboard. We would dream of being able to do what the pros could. Invariably, I would always end up with a badly twisted ankle. It reminds of of this time when I hurt my ankle, but still wanted to go to a party so used my crutches to steer my bike and peddled one-footed. Fun times...
