An Interview with Mark Zuckerberg about the Metaverse
Local-first is a set of principles that enables collaborative software without the loss of data ownership associated with the cloud.

I first learned of Patrick Rhone when he was among the few that were included in a documentary called Minimalism, A Documentary About The Important Things. Patrick is also the author of the book ENOUGH.
While I was just about to push “record” and do my own podcast on the topic, when I heard back from Patrick I decided to turn this into a conversation. And it is one I thoroughly enjoyed having.
Listen in as Patrick and I discuss what minimalism means to us, how to live as a minimalist (whether or not you choose to label it) when your spouse or partner is not, and the other surprising ways living with less can enhance the quality of our lives.
