Hello Mastondon-ers and -erettes.

Social media is a lot of work as is and this is yet another thing to maintain. I won't for the forseeable future really post a lot. I look at my mentions every few days though.

Sehr gutes Interview

Was ist der Wert eines Wals?
IWF-Forschende sagen: zwei Millionen US-Dollar.
Für Umweltwissenschaftlerin @adribuller@twitter.com ist diese Zahl vor allem ein Beispiel dafür, dass der «grüne Kapitalismus» ein «gefährliches Ablenkungsmanöver» sei.

Die Frage ist am Ende ja nur, ob wir all das, was Christian Lindner als Finanzminister und faktischer Kanzler gerade verhindert und zerstört, noch irgendwie repariert bekommen oder ob er es schafft, die Idee von Gesellschaft und Verantwortung komplett abzuwickeln.

What a child.

@Andst7@twitter.com I hereby challenge @paraga@twitter.com to a public debate about the Twitter bot percentage.

Let him prove to the public that Twitter has <5% fake or spam daily users!

If the US had a modern payment system a lot of Blockchain nonsense would have never seen the light of day.

RT @smdiehl@twitter.com

Most of Europe and 56 countries already have real-time payments. The Bank of Tanzania rolled out real-time payments in under four years.

And somehow FedNow has been delayed for 12 years now. The United States is very behind the rest of the world.

Basically: Use LibGen. Fuck every publisher going that kind of route

Pearson's making their textbooks NFTs isn't just dumb, it is deeply against customers and will make used textbooks more expensive. Because they either take a share which people will add to the price or they can make selling textbooks impossible through their smart contract.

Every aspect of it is against the people needing to buy the textbooks. That alone should make people oppose that garbage. That and the garbage tech.

Reading David F. Noble's "Progress without People" and this one page basically explains why one has to oppose the whole crypto space.

If your garbage libertarian trash tech can't work reliably and securely, don't allow people to invest into it until it does?

The whole crypto space is just an engine to move money from poor people to investors and tech bros. It's deeply morally corrupt.

Think about the mindset when "people losing their life savings" is just "growing paying of the industry".

How deeply inhumane. Don't just smash looms, smash blockchains. All of them.

My heart goes out to community members who lost their life savings in the ongoing attack.
Stay strong, these are the growing pains the entire blockchain industry has to go through.
These moments, if handled correctly, lead to a lot of strength for any ecosystem.🖖

Der Appell an MagischeZukunftstechnologie ist auch nur eine Form von Denial.

RT @sixtus@twitter.com

-Chef findet im Kontext der aktuellen Energiegrise, wir müssten uns dringend mit der befassen — aber er unterschlägt die dafür notwendige Schlüsseltechnologie: eine Zeitmaschine, um einen funktionierenden Fusionsreaktor aus dem nächsten Jahrhundert zu holen.

Dieser Herr Scholz rennt mir jetzt langsam auf allen Events hinterher. Ich fühle mich verfolgt.

"Tokenization" isn't a value anyone but grifters cares about.

This is utterly absurd. It's just "your life is worse now but you get paid in some company money that's worthless".

Can we get someone in land to make one use case that's not total hogwash?

(And it really does not understand most of the businesses the thread talks about.)

In the end crypto turns everyone into a scamer

RT @coinfessions@twitter.com

I ended up with 4 ETH in an illiquid NFT project. My wife bailed me out by organizing a 'women in NFTs' workshop at her workplace, where she introduced them to buying their first NFTs (off me).
