@hankchizljaw "I met Andy about a week ago on Mastodon. He made a funny joke, and I retooted it. You may wonder why that qualifies him for your consideration. My simple answer to this is that Jerry Seinfeld tells us that if it isn't funny, we shouldn't care about it. Andy 's funny. So, you should care to work with him." Put that on your resume, and I'll toot that too.
@BTCHODL id rather not have all my eggs in one basket. I think indexing is more noble these days. If high dominance mean lower btc market cap, would you still want that?
@402PaymentRequired @bottomshelfbtc Well, the vitalik phenomenon was a combination of things that hit. The entrance of progressive demographics, joe lubin's rather shameless brand of confidence, and the popularity of the 'affected seer' trope. Certainly it had nothing to do with turing complete smart contracts :)
@bottomshelfbtc to me, sometimes, it seems that people show us 'the ideal' and tell us why we're not that. And, maybe we're not 'the ideal'. But, that doesn't mean we're not 'the best of what's available, given the limited resources'. So, I don't accept that our inertia will be displaced by a newcomer simply because the newcomer advertises a 'solution' to this perceived failing.
When people are financially invested they want a return. When people are emotionally invested they want to contribute. #bitcoin
@bottomshelfbtc yeah, I think we're on the same page. I think it's ok that the distribution is unequal. Lately, bitcoiners have resorted to evidence denial, in lieu of reasoning, and I wasn't sure if that's what you were advocating here.
@bottomshelfbtc I don't see why that's FUD. Shouldn't we fight the interpretation of the evidence, and not the existence of (rote, imo) evidence?
@AnonByNature I don't think trolling has any meaning. I think it's just a racial slur. And you can know that. Because no one will tell you what it means. At best, it's a person who uses the Socratic method. Either way, it's an celebration of ignorance.
A man's hat is a mark of distinction, discriminating taste, and sound conviction. Feminist, now. Race: Orange. Prounouns: Scaramouche/Scaramuccia. Blasphemer.
