This is what it's like

To walk away and not look back

Yes, them and a bunch of others have been pounding the drums for a bit. I think some are talking about the sky falling down because they're selling gold and silver. I think some can see the system is unwieldy, but are don't have the skills to see exactly when it will topple. (For example, some years back Gerald Celente, a respected forecaster, noted that he was wrong about when because how was he to know about the schemes, band-aids, duct tape and QE that they would come up with to hold things together.)

Then I started hearing similar rumblings of a catastrophe from more mainstream folks.

I think it's like Martin Armstrong says. I think a lot of people are only looking domestically, ignoring the greater world economy when they make their predictions.

The guys at ZeroHedge and other places are expecting shortages in the US, similar to what's going on in Venezuela.

That was hilarious. And the other interviews were, too!

When I go to the http://api.hubski.com/ page, I can't access unless I log in again? And it's an unsecured page? No https?

Hmmm...

With all the data storage available nowadays, and with the ability to identify a person using browser information, operating system, etc, gleaned from a person browsing, I wonder if someone isn't simply just building (or building upon) a central storage/database which advertisers and interested parties can access to determine which customer may be visiting their site?

I wonder how advertisers and sites will try to circumvent or otherwise reach and target iOS and High Sierra users?

Curious to see how it ends. As taxes rise, people with money and resources tend to leave. ... Does this mean these states are going to start looking like Detroit?

Wow.. So, in creating and participating in these merry-go-rounds, you are funding another person's success, in addition to contributing to your own.

I think it's especially interesting considering how much is typically given to organizations "helping" others. What other changes might come about by eliminating the "middle man" in those situations?

After searching the thesaurus for variations of promote, endorse, support, vote, highlight and coming up with bupkus...

Maybe you should just invent a word. Orange (suggested in another comment) may be too generic.

I keep coming back to playing with the name of the site. Hubski. Hub-and-spoke is the system used to design many airports. Hubski reminds of an airport, where ideas come to land, takeoff, etc. So maybe Taxiing or Add To Runway (or something like that) ...

Hatch? (an opening of restricted size allowing for passage from one area to another.)

Hub-and-spoke is

The Primer seems to be truncated ...
