Thursday, packing, backups, Braai Day tuna braai with Wouter and Rene in Bantry Bay, we played some pool.
Friday, woke up in Bantry Bay, rainy day, Kleinsky Bagels, afternoon drink with Michael, Curry Club supper with Evan, Wouter and Rene, time well spent.
Saturday, woke up in Cape Town, Granger Bay market with Wouter and Rene, fetched a switch from Nick, Balboa and Bartinney wine bar catch up with Al, pizza evening and MC’s in Stellenbosch with Al and friends – good fun, time well sent.
Die Mostertsdrift pizza – lots of artichoke, mozzarella and some sundried tomato.
Sunday, woke up in Stellenbosch, De Zalze visit, watched a few movies – The Social Dilemma, a documentary about League of Legends and two space doccies.
Social media must be causing some trouble – people living in filter bubbles and finding it hard to relate.
I’d like to think I have a pretty good understanding of Facebook marketing now, almost 40k page likes.
Saturday, tinkering, nap, afternoon walk, watched My Octopus Teacher on Netflix.
Something bugged me about the Move One Million marching. Marching to ask an individual to change something – like changing their vote makes a lot of sense to me. Marching for very broad topics which you want government to fix feels a bit lame – especially in South Africa. Watch this…
I listened to a Jerm interview with Martin Van Staden about Libertarianism. Worth a listen. I found this interesting – libertarians are constitutionalists – they see the problem with pure democracy. The constitution protects the rights of the individual and guards against mob rule – democracy can quickly become mob rule. In South Africa we have a very real problem that the mob can change the constitution (66% vote) – so we don’t have this balance – individual rights are not protected. tldr; make very sure that you set up your constitution correctly – you only really have one chance – maybe some things should be immutable.
Friday, breakfast at Boschendal, Grande Provence wine tasting – you can taste, but you can’t buy – pretty lame, installed Illustrator and figured out how to use maybe 1% of it.
It’s time to tinker. We need more generalist, with a strong vision for the future… comment on It’s Time To Build essay.
Saturday, epic nap, tinkering, went down a nerdy Youtube rabbit hole to learn about Catalonia independence movement, late afternoon walk, KWV 10 irish hot chocolate and some scifi – watched I Am Mother – not bad.
Try Babylonstoren Bitter Lekker + Cointreau and soda.
Sunday, tinkering, some infograpic making with Illustrator, fetched Mia, early supper – her first Big Mac ever – shock horror, caught up on two weeks of blogging with some Johnny 12yo.
