Â CEO of Publica Interview starts at 7:05 and ends at 42:10 â€œSo a book token in our eReader app is going to be used as part of the cryptographic protection of the book to authorize you to read it by proving that you bought it. Thereâ€™s another token that we made called the Pebble (PBL). Itâ€™s a ticker on exchanges, and if you want to go looking for what the Pebble is doing in the world you would look for the PBL ticker. Itâ€™s a token, but it only works as money. Itâ€™s not specific to a single book.â€ News â€œE Ink starts shipping advanced color epaperâ€ by Michael Kozlowski at Good E Reader - August 28, 2018 â€œSearsâ€™ stock soars as ship-to-store tire deal with Amazon expanded nationwideâ€ by Tomi Kilgore at MarketWatch - August 29, 2018 â€œNew Amazon Go Store Shrinks In Size, A Sign of Hope for Competitorsâ€ by Chris Walton at Forbes - August 28, 2018 Tech Tip â€œLiterary Clock Made from E-Readerâ€ by tjaap at Instructables, reported on at Gizmodo Interview with Josef Marc Publica Ethereum Project Morgan James Publishing Amy Foster by Joseph Conrad at the Publica Store - available for PBL 9.29 Canoeing in the Wilderness by Henry David Thoreau at Publica Store - available for PBL 5.25 Publica Book Catalog Factfulness: Ten Reasons Weâ€™re Wrong About the World--and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Rosling Music for my podcast is from an original Thelonius Monk composition named "Well, You Needn't."

A Shooting in Alabama
When you think of a mass shooter, you donâ€™t envision someone like Amy Bishop.Â Forty-five years old, female, Harvard-educated, Biology professor, and mother of four, Amy Bishop would seem an unlikely killer.Â It was 3pm on February 12, 2010, and thirteen professors and staff members from the University of Alabama Biology Department met in a third-floor conference room.Â Plant biologist Gopi Podila passed out the printed agenda and sat beside Amy Bishop. Amy had a handgun in her purse. Amy was normally quite vocal in these meetings, but that day she was silent and brooding.Â She shot six of her co-workers, killing three, before she washed up and called her husband for a ride home.Â The police arrived before he did. But Amyâ€™s homicidal rampage did not come out of nowhere.Â Investigations into her background would reveal a troubled person with a history of violence and a probable cover up in her hometown in Massachusetts. Today, in A Shooting in Alabama, weâ€™ll delve into the life of a killer, atypical but just as devious and dangerous as any other.Â At how many points in her life could she had been thwarted---and why wasnâ€™t she? Madison Reed Note: Jill and Dick will be taking next week off. TCB will return on January 29th!

Amy Ray Isn't Afraid to Holler
As a gay, left-wing woman living in the South, Indigo Girls' Amy Ray says she's in love with a place that doesn't always love her back. But she draws creative fuel from the differences of opinion, and also expresses gratitude for the village that's helped Amy and her partner raise their child in rural Georgia. On her latest solo album Holler Amy calls out the difference between Southern pride and Southern hate, imagines what Jesus might have thought of a border wall and delivers a smoking live performance with her band.
