Just revelling in Nick Szabo’s awesome essay blog, Unenumerated.

My favorite essays so far:
- Collecting metal: the inner and outer worlds of jewelry, coins, bullion bits, and odd shiny things
“When paper debt-money reaches the West, with bills of exchange to send money across hostile lands and later bank notes representing vaults hopefully full of gold ..” 🙂
- Money, blockchains, and social scalability
- The dawn of trustworthy computing
