The Polynetwork incident shows that people are torn between the desire for decentralization which is free from censorship and regulation, yet protected by strong technology and justice. In the end, perhaps some degree of regulation is inevitable to ensure a modicum of protection to investors. And while we are at it, was Bitcoin originally created as an investment? That's what it has become. A regulated investment which for some, is beyond their reach. It was meant to be money for the masses.

The lesson of this story (of a Catholic blog using commercially resold Grindr data to out a gay priest) is *either* that anonymised data can always be de-anonymised (pretty much the intuition of lots of experts I know), or, less generally, you can't expect an org that benefits from selling other people's data to calibrate how much they should spend on anonymising.

But some people really need to learn things first hand.

There is a time to keep quiet, and there is a time to speak up.


Stay positive, even as the world around you churns with negativity.

Stay upbeat and cheerful, even as you face challenges and difficulty.

Nobody is asking you to be an idiot grinning when others are mourning.

A bell has no sound until it is rung
A song has no tune until it is sung
Your feelings cannot be felt
Until you tell.

Recently visited an art gallery with friends. Good learning experience.

When you go through difficult times, remember "God's got this". Great message from Joel Osteen
