VCs talking their book. We are entering tech stagnation and everybody’s a bit desperate for the next big thing. In its absence, money is increasingly directed to non-functional innovation kabuki like cryptocurrencies.

Don't think there have ever been more simultaneous technological revolutions going on than right now.

Some say that Cameron’s Avatar isn’t a significant movie because it doesn’t have much of an online community. Is that bad though? An obsessive fandom is often detrimental (Star Wars, Marvel etc.) Classic movies are just enjoyed. Nobody needs to be a “Sound of Music” superfan

I’m glad it’s still just omicron, because the Omega Variant sure would be ominous in a Charlton Heston kind of way

Why Disneyland is Soviet Union: - Parades - Bad food - No private businesses within its borders - Internationalist puppet shows - 90-minute line to Snow White’s mausoleum

Apparently Jim Davis googles "Garfield" for reference when he draws Garfield and I think that's great

Seldon’s private level of tech seems way ahead of even the Empire. How did he acquire it? In the books he was fundamentally just an academic. This Seldon is some kind of transhuman Iron Man with his own superships. #Foundation

#Foundation on Apple TV+: An excellent show about the Emperor of the Galaxy… but half the time we’re instead watching Generic Sci-fi Events unfold on Generic Rugged Sci-fi Planet (or its neighboring Generic Ghost Ship, Generic Asteroid Belt, etc.)

For the first time I click on a “space” in this app, and this is the first thing I see. LOL once more at Twitter UI. Why even show me spaces with people I’ve blocked? Do they really think I want to hear these people’s voices?

Regardless of their political alignment, Americans should probably be worried that they’ve created a society where 1) a 17-year-old feels the need to go into a demonstration with a big gun; 2) is told killing people there was completely acceptable behavior.

Your grandma’s landline rings. It’s some guy asking her to send money to Delaware “for the sick veterans.” Your Twitter feed lights up. It’s some guy asking you to send money to Delaware “to buy the Constitution.” Tech people are total boomers at heart. Bless them

Everyone will get a refund, minus gas fees, and of course donors also lost exchange fees converting money to Eth and back. Nice job sucking in some more real money into the crypto pyramid while again delivering nothing to anyone

What a boring start to S4 of #StarTrekDiscovery. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by Foundation and Dune, but even the previously impressive visuals in Disco felt so lackluster now. Cartoony, everything either blue or orange, no substance to anything.

4-5 years later nothing has changed. The deep flaws that were supposed to be fixed Real Soon Now remain unfixable. Projects that raised billions four years ago are wastelands with no real users, just daytraders playing with their coins. There’s no actual business here.

Well, maybe not the name change, but the rest is pretty much true. In 2016-17 I really thought Eth and smart contracts could be good, and spent quite a bit of time researching and writing prototype code. But the degree of lies and wishful thinking was too much to absorb.

Fun fact: I used to be a moderately crypto-curious blockchain optimist. My first name was Sauli. Then I saw a blinding apparition of @davidgerard while navigating to . Soon I changed my name to Pauli.
