Simon Williams suggests companies pay speaker fees to maintainers of open source software the company relies on. This seems like an interesting idea.
If you only count listening nodes, it becomes 52%, 11%, 21%, 14%, 2%. http://azure.erisian.com.au/~aj/taproot/taproot.html?onlylistening=true
That suggests getting to 60% node support should be easy (it's just a minor upgrade), but also that about 15%-30% of the network is running unmaintained versions of the code.
We (Sequoia, https://sequoia-pgp.org) are looking to hire a devop engineer to maintain and expand our CI, setup some benchmarking infrastructure, keep our web services running like dump.sequoia-pgp.org, etc. You should care about privacy and free software. We'd prefer someone living in or near a European timezone. Salary is 43 kEuros/year for 20 hours/week. Salary is not negotiable. Hours are (salary scales linearly).

The Most Backdoor-looking Bug I've Ever Seen - Cryptography Dispatches: https://buttondown.email/cryptography-dispatches/archive/cryptography-dispatches-the-most-backdoor-looking/
I once thought I too could protect the data of a lot of users.
I ran a machine learning company that analyzed social media data.
Unlike competitors I made this a free public search engine.
Investors demanded I turn it into a political propaganda machine.
I ultimately quit.
Did I post this here yet? This article contains more useful information about mitigating personal virus transmission risk than anything else I've seen so far. Includes math for the mathies, and easy to understand conclusions for the non-mathies. https://medium.com/swlh/so-youre-going-outside-a-physics-based-coronavirus-infection-risk-estimator-for-leaving-the-house-d7dcae2746c0
@waxwing listening to the slp podcast seems like accumulating most of the change into a single output that's an eltoo channel factory would make cross input sig aggregation pretty effective for coin joins. Something like all inputs > x, all outputs bar one < x, and the remaining output a channel factory. Could have some atomic lightning txs implied too I think.
