That is the new Michael Gibson book on the founding and development of the Thiel fellowship program, here are two blurbs:
“Part adventure tale, part manifesto, Paper Belt on Fire is a battle cry for anyone who ever dreamed of wresting power back from corrupt institutions—or of nailing the truth to the cathedral door.”—Peter Thiel, author of Zero to One “Michael Gibson has spearheaded a recent revolution in education, and how to turn it into true learning and achievement. Paper Belt on Fire gives an inside look at how this was accomplished, the people behind the story, and how and why America can do better.” —Tyler Cowen, author of The Great Stagnation and professor of economics, George Mason University
You can pre-order it here, due out November 8. And currently former Thiel fellow Vitalik Buterin is attempting to pull off The Merge, congratulations and let us hope this works out!
