It won't be a surprise, but I honestly believe we'd have a better world if were to get a chance to replace part of these industries. And given the immense power these industries have over our policy makers, I don't see any other way to get rid of them. Bitcoin is unstoppable, it is 100% neutral and honest; it has no opinion that can be corrupted by wealth and power.
Anyone with internet can use it. Anyone with electricity can mine it. No permission required.

"Yes. The government should have even more power and control over my life."

In terms of adoption, Bitcoin has roughly the same users as the Internet had in 1997.

But Bitcoin's growing faster. Next 4 years on current path will bring Bitcoin users to 1b people, that's the equivalent of 2005 for the Internet.

The model is quite curious. The idea is quite naive and simple and for sure it can't hold forever (infinite price?!), but somehow it has managed to predict 2 years of price movement quite exactly. It's almost as if the pandemic is irrelevant to Bitcoin..

Can anyone explain why we settled for those horrible misleading and annoying notice pop-ups instead of making also something the browser prompts for like location and webcam?

From , we can't expect anything more. But why doesn't do this? Or ?

I've been running a cookie-free browser for a few months now and I bumped in quite some "news websites" that literally don't work without cookies.

It's like they're saying "yeah, if we can't track you, we have no reason to even try to serve you any content, fuck off".

My autistic daughter received her 2nd school interruption notice today “asking” her to “stay home for 14 days” b/c she was in “close contact” w/ someone who has only a 10% chance of being contagious w/ a virus that has statistically 0% chance of hurting her...

@sjors @AaronvanW "Runtime: 40 minutes". So you talked a *LOT* about LOT.

Governments allow themselves special "emergency powers" that would otherwise not be defensible in a liberal democracy.

Therefore, if you want more power for government, you're incentivized to constantly create and/or exaggerate new emergencies.

The Internet we have today is in its core not decentralized. And with that I don’t mean Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc. No. The infrastructure for domain name resolution for example is regulated by a single US non-profit corporation. When they don’t like you… bad luck!

The non-profit organisation @ICANN@twitter.com, that controls the central backbone of the internet (the root-servers) and has a monopoly on letting registrars (think godaddy) resell .com/.net/.org/etc domains, denied my application to become a registrar. A thread.
