In 1947 Bell Labs invented the transistor. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

if anyone responds to this with 'but but but muh markets!' I am going to shit a brick

fuck the economic aspects of bitcoin, can we talk about the federated parts? like the blockchain is just a federated database worth an arbitrary dollar value. the money-ness and the ensuing capitalist hordes are shit, but bitcoin is still a massive, (kinda) decentralized federation.

is there a way to design federated software that incentivizes people to join the federation like bitcoin does, but doesn't involve the trash fire that is money? like free storage for everyone or something idk

so many things to fix and so little time to fix them

@richdecibels "My favourite example right now is : it’s a social network very similar to Twitter. But instead of selling advertising, the platform is funded by users paying a small subscription fee. In return, users are invited to participate in governance, in a group: what kind of censorship should we have on the platform? where should we host the data? what code of conduct should users adhere to? It’s wonderful to see a digital platform being governed like a public utility."

yall the shit that is (still!!) going on in hawaii is CRAZY.

kilauea has been erupting for almost a month and a half now, and the lava has destroyed 3 neighborhoods (which thankfully mostly consisted of rich people's empty vacation homes), straight up *evaporated* the largest fucking lake in the entire state in less than a single day (!!!), and completely filled in kapoho bay, turning it into kapoho peninsula and creating 300 acres of brand new land.

what. the. actual. fuck.

@zuccmezaddy I'm not arguing that media has literally no use value whatsoever, and I agree w you re: trash books.

my point was that the passive consumption of media, regardless of the medium, is fundamentally an act of complacency, and is the quintessential trait of the normie (also known as the consumer, in business speak.)

while we will always do both, it is always better to create rather than to consume. our ability to create ideas, to make things, is what makes us human
