"Imagine if the government went after corruption as hard as it goes after guys who run filesharing sites. Priorities." - Edward Snowden

@laura @aral Thank you for articulating what I was feeling in my gut about Facebook, Google, Instagram, surveillance capitalism, etc Specifically I'd like to thank Aral for this: youtube.com/watch?v=upu0gwGi4F & Laura for this: laurakalbag.com/what-is-mastod Because of you folks I joined Mastodon. I found an instance ( linernotes.club) I'm so stoked to be a part of. All the best. 👍

This projet defeat ReCaptcha with 91% accuracy 🤩. How? You might ask. They ask for the audio challenge, dl the mp3, forward it to Google Speech2Text API and submit the answer back... and it works 🤦🏻‍♂️ buff.ly/2CO6s7V

OpenNode refusing to develop for Roger Ver's coin shows a few things:
- How powerful it is to say no
- That Roger can't find developers to work for him - more people saying no
- The people who are saying no are the people who are building alternatives

Went to a birthday party for software tonight, complete with cake and beers bought via lightning payments. Lots of good conversation! Feeling inspired.

Happy Birthday Bitcoin!

There is no better way to celebrate the 10 years of this beautiful protocol, than working to understand down to smallest detail by building it up again. The clarity of the guidance by @_JustinMoon_@twitter.com at the buidlbootcamp.com does not stop to amaze me.

Can the client be used with ordinary ActivityPub accounts (like Mastodon)?

It is rare to find an ad which I was happy to see. Nice one @BitMEXResearch@twitter.com. Happy Anniversary Bitcoiners! #Bitcoin

@arjunblj@twitter.com @dwr@twitter.com Fwiw the number of Lightning nodes will be increasingly harder to measure as our app will have unadvertised nodes/channels by default.

It's exactly 10 years after Satoshi Nakamoto launched by encoding the headline of The Times of January 3rd 2009 into its genesis block! On its 10th anniversary, Bitcoin is mentioned again on the front-page of The Times!

@SayyidBernard@twitter.com @jordanbpeterson@twitter.com I've been saying it for years. Don't look at ATH's, look at yearly lows. That will tell you the growth in hodlers.

2012 - $4
2013 - $65
2014 - $200
2015 - $185
2016 - $365
2017 - $780
2018 - $3200

That tells you the growth in the people who won't sell at any price.

This very comprehensive set of lecture notes seems, at first quick look, to be *excellent*.

Forgive the nerd humour, but I make this judgement based on a random sampling by reading the intro here about zero knowledge proofs ... so I proved to myself that it's good by random sampling and verifying the goodness of the random sample :)

@aral is hallo.gent still a thing? Are you from Ghent?
