Amazon buys Twitch

Click on “Amazon buys Twitch” above to see this entire post.

On the radio today I heard a story about a company buying another company.

The company being bought is unique.

The company being bought is named Twitch.

Twitch allows people to watch, on their computer, other people playing video games, on their computer.

Amazon is paying about one billion dollars for a company that allows people to waste time watching other people waste time (most of whom are likely shooting make-believe guns at make believe people).

According to the UN, 783 million people world-wide do not have access to clean water.

The same source estimates 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation.

Humans are filling the oceans with trillions of pieces of plastic each and every day, killing hundreds of thousands of animals.

Our unconscious behaviors are destroying our planet.

Surely we can do better.

We must.

Or our children will inherit a toxic planet, devoid of diversity.

I promise not to buy or play a single video game next year.

I promise to pick up litter each and every day next year.

I promise to not buy any drinking water packaged in plastic next year.

I promise to try to get 5 people stop buying bottled water forever next year.

What small thing could you do?
