New map app recommendation: Organic Maps - organicmaps.app/ - Available for Android and iOS. It is a privacy preserving Maps.Me fork providing users with beautiful vector tiles for offline maps and navigation. This is my favourite way for using #OpenStreetMap on a smartphone!

@PrestonPysh calls have been spot on.

Send it.

“And I just don’t know how anyone is experiencing that and watching bitcoin go up by $1000 a day sitting on the sidelines and saying Ah! Yeah, that’s normal! That’s not normal - that’s insane.”

Oh holy crap I found the culprit!

#Firefox came with this Widevine DRM extension by #Google. That was overriding uBlock Origin. As soon as I disabled the YT ads were gone. TIL.

For anyone interested I started writing out some Bitcoin explainers.

The idea is to try and explain a few concepts in more normie non-tech language chiefly with analogy.

First step is to build up a bit of a map of the space and key concepts needed to appreciate Bitcoin.

Inflation and anarchy 1 pagers are there (very simplified) with money coming soon.

I feel like @nic super power was always being the reasonable one, but god damn that was well done.

There seems to be an awful lot of macro celebrities who don’t quite understand how millennials who have been consistently lied to by politicians their entire adult life in the service of cronyism and war might have a slightly nihilistic view on the current system and wish for something else.

awesome shell one liner by @[email protected] for getting the bitcoin whitepaper from your full node:

bitcoin-cli getrawtransaction 54e48e5f5c656b26c3bca14a8c95aa583d07ebe84dde3b7dd4a78f4e4186e713 | sed 's/0100000000000000/\n/g' | tail -n +2 | cut -c7-136,139-268,271-400 | tr -d '\n' | cut -c17-368600 | xxd -p -r > bitcoin.pdf

get the bitcoin whitepaper directly from the utxoset. This works on a pruned node:

seq 0 947 | (while read -r n; do bitcoin-cli gettxout 54e48e5f5c656b26c3bca14a8c95aa583d07ebe84dde3b7dd4a78f4e4186e713 $n | jq -r '.scriptPubKey.asm' | awk '{ print $2 $3 $4 }'; done) | tr -d '\n' | cut -c 17-368600 | xxd -r -p > bitcoin-test.pdf

Starting to feel like when we talk about government control of money we could simplify matters by just saying.

“Giving control of all the money to like 20 guys”

People think government is magic and incorruptible, but when you point out that its really a few humans in charge they get that the incentives to be corrupt start to make a lot of sense.
