Listening to the latest episode of Darknet Diaries... kid trying to sell himself and his skills says he learned "assembly language" and "code languages" in a week -- unlike graduates of those lame web-dev boot camps. Every episode of this show feels like first year industry folk bragging about their alleged exploits fresh off another viewing of "Hackers". I'm still listening, though, so dunno what that says about me.

Mimblewimble, even today, is still wildly underrated technology. I don't get it.

Facebook has become the worlds largest house of cards; the company feels so incredibly brittle these days.
