Narcos 📺 imdb Netflix Can’t stop until end of S2. wiki for better watching experience.
Hackers and Painters 📚 Paul Graham O’Reilly I think a society in which people can do and say what they want will also tend to be one in which the most efficient solutions win, rather than those sponsored by the most influential people. and many other highlights, I’ll read it again.
