Aside from any Bitcoin specific material, what would you say influenced Bitcoin is Venice the most in terms of what you've read in the past?
hardly any of the inspiration came from bitcoin content, tbh! by far the most influential material was the writing of Jane Jacobs, Wendell Berry, and James C Scott, to narrow it down to a core few. the next tier would probably be the likes of Allan Savory, Roger Scruton, Friedrich Hayek, Elinor Ostrom, David Montgomery, Frederic Lane, and William Rees-Mogg and James Dale Davidson, authors of The Sovereign Individual.
I made a meme a while back I was pretty proud of: the Winnie The Pooh template, and the top says, "Read The Sovereign Individual" while the bottom says, "Read The Entire Bibliography To The Sovereign Individual". there's a lot of amazing stuff in there - I'd highly recommend it as its own reading list.
Thanks! The book is fantastic, albeit I'd be lying if I claimed to understand absolutely all of it :)
