If you have the opportunity to be vaccinated, and you are refusing to do so, please unfollow me now. You are making everything worse for all of the rest of us.

To be clear: I think blockchain can be really useful, and I think cryptocurrencies are the future. I know many trustworthy and thoughtful people doing both.

Perhaps it's redundant, but he works in cryptocurrency. Go figure.

Just…

Met a new neighbor in tech. Starting planning an outdoors hangout with other tech neighbors. Asked confirmation that everyone was vaxxed.

Got a reply that he's "too busy" to get vaxxed, with links to a redacted Joe Rogan video and a 3 hour Ivermectin conspiracy video.

6 years later, Rayssa Leal won the silver medal in the Olympics.

One thing I love about this video is how they show her failing again and again before nailing it. She falls down, and gets back up again until she doesn't fall down. She did the work.

Storing lots of energy, cheaply, for weeks or months is holy grail for a carbon emissions-free system.

"We condemn human rights abuses in Cuba," says country with torture camp in Cuba

There's something in the air. Not only have I been seeing a lot of new research published about psilocybin and MDMA to treat depression, but I've had lots of private chats with friends and colleagues interested in it. Normalize, legalize, and regulate.
