is an interesting thing, and my own has been confusing for awhile. I’ve landed at though. Kinda nice to have a label for it I guess. Not something I talk about much and won’t start, but ayy

NYCers have a new ridehailing alternative to Uber: The Drivers Cooperative is a driver-owned, app-based ride-hailing service that pays drivers more, charges riders less, and pays out any profits to driver-owners as periodic dividends.

Platform cooperativism is a powerful antidote to app-based gig work: a way to provide customers with the convenience that made app-based services so popular while putting workers in control of their days, schedules and conditions.

#Bitcoin / #LightningNetwork does not scale (again)

#BTC is capped to the (ridiculous) limit of 400k tx / day.
Lightning Network supposed to fix scalability issues still requires to set up 1 channel = 1 tx for each person.

7 billion / 400k = 47 years.

There is an inherent problem with logical thinkers, realists, and pessimists; and I speak as one who is all three.

Some solutions aren't logical. Boom.

Example: Helping others helps yourself.

A logical mind says to that, "if I spend that time on myself, I double the benefit for me."

Doesn't work that way. It never has, it never will. When you truly endeavor to take quality care of yourself, you naturally end up taking care of other people as well. The same is true in reverse.

wins.

I think about my rich uncle, who treats everyone like they’re beneath him. Then I think of my millionaire realtor friend; who has NEVER treated me like a less-than, & is always helping others and doesn’t gloat.

Money doesn’t have to be evil. Anyone with half a brain though understands that having a lot does not = having a good life.

My uncle will forever be remembered as a prick. His money and his house will crumble into the dirt just like his body.

What a worthwhile legacy to leave behind.

I had this thought.

For almost every insane conspiracy (Gates implanting microchips) there is a real "conspiracy" going on (Gates working to keep vaccines under patents, Gates laundering his reputation).

What if we mimick those conspiracy sites, infiltrate the telegram groups, share the "real" conspiracies and eventually convert them to the left?

That last step seems like a big jump, but I don't think it is. They are dissatisfied with the status-quo, but have been misled about the causes.

Hulu advertisers hike the volume up 2-3x, which is illegal for regulated broadcasts, which is not. Now instead of watching commercials, I mute them and play with my phone. I’m not sure how this is a good marketing tactic? I’ve never been more incentivized to look away

update: a few hours after I had it I started feeling woozy. Today I’ve been nauseous, light headed, had a headache, muscle aches, & arm weakness from the injection. My mom commented that I looked “glassy eyed”. This is the first vaccine I’ve ever had any side effects from, but overall still relatively mild. A little more nervous for the 2nd shot though considering it tends to be a worse experience for people

In my eyes there are two kinds of people.

1) those who grow to understand there’s nothing uniquely special about them
2) those who never figure that out and act like a spoiled child until they die

I’m getting in ~30 minutes so if I die, sorry. 💕 I don’t hold it against anyone who wants to wait a little longer btw. I’m impatient for a sense of normalcy

Sorry if any of you I’m following thinks I’m a weird lurker who liked your stuff

It’s because I’m a weird lurker who likes your stuff

I’m not an engineer or mega hacker like many of ya’ll, but I truly believe the federated web is the future, and the best model for personal freedom on the internet
