Vince Carter is a better VC than Nic.

One thing that I don’t think gets mentioned enough is how the lack of strong privacy tools contributes greatly to social division and hatred.

In a world where everyone’s personal details and beliefs are public, not obeying some One True Way™️ poses serious risk. And people feel needlessly threatened by their neighbors’s ways of lives.

Shocked that people are still shocked that "governments" seek to govern 🤦‍♂️

Lots of talk about calling for the SEC to regulate shitcoins and shitcoin securities.

Cool… but let’s not lose sight of the bigger picture: Bitcoiners are going to have to build beyond these kinds of scams. Obsolescence is the best form of regulation ⚡️

If bitcoin is Venice, am I being out of touch when I do CNBC interviews in front of a massive ship-of-the-line replica?

I'd rather BUILD than argue about this.

Nope. Trying to offset my carbon footprint by using Stacker News in my sleep.

Ba! Nothing will ever overthrow the Denarius Dollar!

Did you read the title? This is not an ask. In retrospect, it will have been inevitable.

having to use JS for everything is just plain bad.

On a related note, there's also the fact that Swift is an immaculate programming language. More developers using it -- especially combined with SwiftUI -- would be extremely beneficial to the long-term health of the ecosystem.

Do it native. SwiftUI for iOS and kotlin for android.

Also, it would be really nice to see more funding for native developers in this space 🧙‍♂️

I only use it for that, too... except for me, it still is worth it 😂

But... if we ask nicely, the masters might also loosen the chains by a 1/2 mm.

I seem to be in the minority, but I don't really get concerned about stuff like this.

Why? Basic human action: as the supply of humans begins to drop, the incentives to reproduce increase. And there's a very well-established solution for accomplishing such a thing 😄

Almost just as well!

Stacker News is truly one of those "If you build it, they will come" projects. When people find it, and stick around for just a bit, they'll be hooked ⚡️
