Underrated: Giving greasy large-portioned foods condescending, fat-shaming names like "Fatty Melt" and "Hungry Boy." I know what I'm doing to myself and it's nice to know we're all on the same page.🍔🥩

True journalism is publishing the truth that others don't want published. But just because it makes someone mad doesn't mean it's true journalism. It could just be sloppy/biased/inaccurate. #TheMoreYouKnow

I talked to some of the sharpest minds in crypto about the ability to trace Monero's transactions. Common theme: practice good opsec or your privacy can be compromised.

Under that definition, sounds like it's useless.

PayPal adding crypto is a sign that the dollar is on its way out... and possibly a sign that PayPal itself will soon enough be a thing of the past.

PayPal is adding crypto. People like me who live on crypto used to be an endangered species. Not for much longer!

Sports is slightly different since it represents escapism, and doesn't tend to be as damaging.

it's a vicious cycle and happens in any interest. Sports as well

Obsessively fixating on election news, the 'rona, and crypto markets are all different flavors of being mentally unwell. Change my mind.

Instead of thinking of people and their actions as good/bad, try thinking of them as acting in their best self-interest. Change incentives, change how the game is played.

It was a blast and an honor to have Jessica come on the podcast on Friday! A really refreshing perspective from someone who has actually used crypto for a very long time.

Sad from a nostalgia perspective, but it makes perfect sense from a business perspective.

If you're in crypto (or aren't but understand it enough to have an opinion on this) I'd like your feedback on this. What are some ways we can bridge this adoption gap?

I never shut up about decentralized tech. Hopefully you all are starting to see why. #TwitterCensorship

This was a really important discussion. Dash's incentives were well-aligned, but a seemingly minor element in how coins are created could have hidden this.

The way baby names are trending I wouldn't be surprised to see a kid named Klaxon soon. Bet he'd be a noisy little guy, too.

Invaluable perspective on privacy from David Campbell. I too hope we're reaching a tipping point soon that will cause people to wake up and protect their privacy.

Thanks for the Dash tip, David Bond! Glad you're liking the How to Live on Crypto series, it's probably my favorite project.
