As a non-American I will say it’s amusing to me that "threaten[ing] the stability and integrity of the Ethereum blockchain" is apparently now a criminal offense in the US. (Not a comment on the general case, just this one sentence) https://x.com/neerajka/status/1790781247720915346

Was able to trick the ChatGPT desktop app into thinking my account was already whitelisted for desktop app use, by mitm intercepting and modifying the server response. Found the idea over on twitter: https://x.com/JosephTico/status/1790144744187691226

Simultaneously the most and least fun part of prediction markets is arguing about resolution criteria... Let's see how this one goes!

Haven't found a good way yet to handle cross-posting here and on twitter, so you can find some 3074 nostalgia tweeting here: https://twitter.com/adietrichs/status/1779969081711431883

Throwback to when we were accused of attacking the Ethereum governance process for proposing EIP-3074: https://ethereum-magicians.org/t/protecting-the-eip-process-from-special-interests-examples-case-study/6542

I have mixed feelings about EIP-3074 finally on path to reaching mainnet, almost 4 years after we originally proposed it. We fought so hard for it back in 2021, to no avail. Now that we are much further on the account abstraction roadmap, I am less confident that the focus on improving EOAs is still warranted.

New mixtral-8x22b just dropped. And I didn’t even have time to check out Command R+ from last week yet. And (small) Llama 3 apparently coming in a week or so. Looks like an exciting next wave of open-weight LLMs! https://x.com/mistralai/status/1777869263778291896

Would be really useful to be able to mute individual channels. Follow someone and keep seeing casts you don’t care for in a particular channel? Just mute it!

There has been quite a bit of backlash against this recent issuance change proposal by @caspar and me (and maybe rightfully so). I tried to clarify our intention in a likely way too long tweet over on X. Hope that adds some context. https://x.com/adietrichs/status/1775554454923747758

I disagree with Charlie here. DAS has received little attention compared to other parts of the roadmap, but there has been a lot of progress over the past year. @fradamt had a great summay post (link below screenshot): https://ethresear.ch/t/from-4844-to-danksharding-a-path-to-scaling-ethereum-da/18046

Are you in Europe and are inexplicably not thrilled about mommy EU protecting you from usable search results when you search for anything maps-related? There is a quick fix for Chromium browsers: https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/edllcgchknhokighleffpipdedmpgiln

My take: L2s should target very different full node requirements than L1, as they inherit L1 security. The correct endgame is lightweight L1 nodes and datacenter L2 nodes. Importantly, by running an L1 node, users can still verify proofs about the state of the L2, so the end-to-end user flow remains fully trustless.

Thanks to @joncharbonneau and @hasu for having us on the podcast! It really is an important topic, and chatting with you was a pleasure as always! It's 2.5 hours, but I hope some people will find the time to listen! I thought the second half of the episode was especially productive.

My hope is that the current (brief) phase of too-cheap-to-meter 4844 DA will serve as a wake-up call, by illustrating the bottlenecks current EVM equivalent L2s will run into once data is no longer scarce. I think we have been too complacent about pushing towards a fundamentally sound high-throughput L2 architecture.

There is a fundamental tension here that the cheap blobs surfaced: "EVM equivalent" L2s have similar bottlenecks to L1, but might want to be significantly more ambitious around e.g. throughput. In that case, waiting for L1 to solve these bottlenecks might not work, as L1 is happy at current levels.
