the amount of support we would marshall just by committing to a platform of political neutral payments and internet infra – and being totally unapologetic about it – is insane. apparently no one is willing to stick up for this. bitcoiners are a lot of things but chiefly among them they are BRAVE and UNAPOLOGETIC. first we build. then we MOG.
it's very clear that political elites in this country are completely spineless, rolling over to contrived narratives (especially re parler) with no resistance. it's time for some new counter elites to emerge, that aren't so fucking afraid to stick up for themselves. bitcoiners need to rise up and assume power.
where the hell are the entrepreneurs making 'choose your own ToS' twitter clones with bitcoin payments built in? mastodon is great but let's get more creative here. unlike other VCs I am not a spineless big tech regime apologist, sino-capital state patsy, I will finance these things.

In case you're curious about my 2019 in blogging. it was a good year, i'm really proud of some of these pieces. didn't have as many "hits"
less than 3 years now. tick tock
it's funny that a bot account dedicated to a thread I made on twitter once has 5x more followers than I have on here
seeing a few new faces on here. pretty cool. might transition over here more. sick of twitter, sick of culture wars, sick of people policing my tweets and my likes etc.
I also wrote a chapter for a book which was published by OUP and a paper published in a law journal (of all places!). and countless memos for the fund of course.
well, I didn't do this. probably closer to 50k words (on my public medium). still a good year in writing.
I'm not sure how many words this is, but my goal for 2019 is to publish 100,000 words of a high quality. Wrote the first 5000 today, 5% of the way there already.
getting some exposure for trashing Coinbase. at the panel I was on, the CB GC waffled on for 30 minutes (he was allocated 10 mins) and repeated his nauseous anti-bitcoin talking points to an ignorant audience.
feels good to expose these anti-bitcoin schemers on twitter and blanket them with reprisals. the solution is to shout louder. we're winning. we got this.
