everything caves to market forces sooner or later.
yes everyone *can*. but you have people who's full time "job" is to meddle while the people whose lives they meddle in are busy living (working, raising families, hobbies).
why though? you have a minority exerting their influence on the rest of us. not everyone has so much free time to continually fend off these advances.
Not to mention the market provide accountability to these activities. Many gov agencies are incompetent yet their budget keeps increasing
It happens naturally & there has always been bread at the store whenever I’ve wanted some. Not necessarily the same brand or kind but it’s there.
The market provides many things stably. Its not always the same people but the result is the same. Grocery store is a good example. Gov isn’t need to say each store must stock bread.
sure, but that's a minority of basic funding. & like ITER & most gov projects over budget. other topics (AI, medicine, biology, electronics) are either cheaper or closer to applications.

minor thing but when loading a topic with a lot of content (tweets, images) you have to scroll down to the bottom of the topic after it's loaded. likely waiting for content to populate?

Most nodes are not mining these transactions. It took a couple hours for these to confirm. Until these are regularly mined, we will keep limits in place.
Who share their insights.
The general trends I see are data is getting cheaper to collect and store & more open to the public to use. & where data is not open (23andMe) it is being researched by the owners of the data.
"What started as a combination of personal curiosity and a lifelong habit of record-keeping has evolved into an invaluable source of data for scientists of all stripes."
again, people already pay for “worthless” things. People will pay for basic science out of pure curiosity. And certain people collect data just because. Not all basic science is CERN or ITER.
just because they bring joy: out of curiosity (eg data analysis), beauty (eg art), or some unexplainable need to measure and categorize.
but you keep repeating it’s “worthless” but I’ve given you examples that show 1) that attitude towards data is changing and 2) people do/pay for things
if it only affects a few people, why are the rest of us forced to pay? You can argue that there are too few people with scientific curiosity. Or the projects are too large/expensive.
True, *for most*. We have billionaires though that are throwing their money at living forever (lol what’s new? 😒). Of course it could be asked,
1) the limit of op_return restricts not only memo but also every other service that would build on top of Bitcoin. I think, whether or not we need Twitter or blogging isn't a ....
I mean, things are typically official if they send you a letter or just put it in the news paper (like rezoning)
yeah it is ;P lol. sales tax only would be nice. & i wonder how far donations only could go (esp for things like helping the poor but also for defense).
LR... most obvious and lazily implemented bot ever? I think so.
I actually made a sale yesterday - my fourth ever. I've made 22 purchases now.

600 new listings this week.

But it's a failed project that no-one uses...
