If you do an Al/ML startup tackling climate change let me know and I will fund it. RTs appreciated.

Could code be just an abstract (AST?) representation of the semantics so that two developers can read & write in a single codebase in their favorite style w\o ever knowing/worrying about the style that the other developer is using? I would like that. We don't need ML for it.

If security measures in airports improve just a bit more, you may get a full body MRI *for free* w/ each flight. Early detection is crucial for cancer, stroke risk,… More MRI is a good thing, but people rarely take them. The interest in detecting your liquids may pay off!

Oh, not really. I was joking, and I may have accidentally created the illusion of depth. Here are some better examples as an apology:

If you want to be more masculine, ask yourself, "what would Aragorn do?" Justice, honor, loyalty, respect, humility, and putting your duty to society above yourself. Notice that "whining about political correctness online for 12 hours a day" isn't on the list.

Non-negligible numbers of addicts, psychiatrists, & drug dealers use scooters, they are both problem & solution Scooters increase the velocity of people (analogous to velocity of money), reaching a new equilibrium point that requires more institutions incl. mental health ones

But then read none of them because people keep writing new interesting papers. All good, but… How do I deal with the crippling anxiety?

Exercise → endorphins → feel good I thought that was a well known casual connection, but TBH it's not my field of expertise ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

IMHO the issue w/ contracts isn't writing them, but enforcing them when one party fails to comply Proof of location is good, but contracts may need many more proofs to be useful in real use cases AFAIK blockchains are too disconnected from the physical world to have that impact

La precariedad se retroalimenta, es un círculo vicioso. Posiblemente la única solución: emigrar. Los mercados dicen: "Cuanta más mano de obra haya, menos se les pagará, oferta y demanda". El ser humano dice: "Cuanto menos me paguen, más trabajaré, para alcanzar una vida digna".

opinion-makers tell u what kapital wants u to believe. fact-excavators work for kapital, because kapital wants to know how the world works to better control it. these dynamics are obvious to ppl who have spoken to finance types and elite journalism types.

I never understood how crypto dismantles power dynamics and distributes it more than allowing the informal economy to scale up to a global level. Do you know of a link that explains that in a simple way?

Con esto vale. Simplemente, es nuevo, hay menos información previa, más entropía, y recibe más atención. En el tercer mundo sigue muriendo gente, pero no se le presta atención, la entropía es baja.

También gastan mucha electricidad los hospitales, pero no vamos a desenchufar gente en coma para enchufar ASICs. Hay cosas que tienen valor, hay cosas que no. No hay que perder el norte. Bitcoin no tiene valor real, pero tiene un coste e impacto en los mercados muy altos.

No, los euros tampoco. Si los euros estuvieran hechos de comida y al estar sobrevalorados hubiera gente acumulándolos y otra muriendo de hambre como consecuencia, también se criticaría. La cuestión es cómo BTC saca recursos (electricidad) de la economía real a la financiera.

Pues ésa es la clave. La electricidad, cuanta más se tenga y más barata sea, mejor, tiene valor real, se puede usar en hospitales, colegios, etc. Bitcoin no tiene valor real. ¿Google y los bancos? Está por ver, yo diría que sí tienen, es debatible, y es otro debate.
