“You can't assume any place you go is private because the means of surveillance are becoming so affordable and so invisible.”

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla explains Pfizer's new tech to Davos crowd: "ingestible pills" - a pill with a tiny chip that send a wireless signal to relevant authorities when the pharmaceutical has been digested. "Imagine the compliance," he says
"The decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq... I mean of Ukraine"
Former US President George W Bush slips up and condemns Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of "Iraq"
I'm in the EU right now. This gets zero attention in the news.
EU: privacy is a fundamental human right
Also EU: we're going to encourage tech companies to automatically & indiscriminately scan all your private messages, chats, and emails for suspicious content
#THORChain makes me mostly long-term bearish on L2 solutions. The friction to jump from one blockchain/cryptocurrency to another is the same as the friction to jump from L1 to L2.
TIL: Mull is a fork of Firefox for Android with improved privacy and removed binary blobs.
Just Balaji predicting inflation more than 2 years ago, and explaining why.
A UBI of some kind is now likely. The problem is that printing money doesn’t create real goods. There has to be a producer on the other side of the transaction. And that producer is now stuck at home.
Trillions of new dollars chasing a finite supply of goods means inflation. https://twitter.com/ByMattStevens/status/1240391809144143874
“The frameworks we use about censorship are obsolete and counterproductive. When you allow everybody to speak in a community, someone hires a troll farm and completely overruns the whole ecosystem with a bunch of sybils.”

@WholeMarsBlog@twitter.com That is why we must clear out bots, spam & scams. Is something actually public opinion or just someone operating 100k fake accounts? Right now, you can’t tell.
And algorithms must be open source, with any human intervention clearly identified.
Then, trust will be deserved.
Do-it-yourself abortion pills will end controls on abortion.
3D-printed guns will end gun control.
Crypto will end capital controls.
Do you see the pattern here?

Here's video walk though so you can make your own abortion pills at home.
So you just arrived here from twitter and it's quiet. Real quiet. That's because there's no algorithm here designed to drive engagement(which equals profit).
Here, you are the algorithm. It's up to you to find and follow people that are interesting to you. You can also see who they follow and who else follows them, as you build it up, it gets more interesting.
Also, if you find people you don't like or entire instances you don't like, you can mute or block them. You are in control.
Right-click save doesn't save the clout; it boosts it.
