Judo training log: learnt a whole range of Georgian techniques on the second to last day of my 10 day ‘write 5 hours a day, train 5 hours a day’ retreat. Then I got murdered with Georgian style randori.

Coach sent me this, which I thought was pretty good. You’re supposed to be exhausted by the time you do standup sparring (randori, in Judo terminology). Which means you won’t do as well. But that’s ok. (The guy in the video is Jimmy Pedro, who is legendary in Judo).

Minor things about Judo that you don't think about it until you do a serious training stint: - Soreness is the norm. Something is always going to hurt. - Travelling with four gis is annoying. Laundry is endless. - You need to travel with syringes and magnets.

Judo training log: this is day 4 of a 10 day writing and training retreat in Kuala Lumpur. (As in I spend 5 hours writing in the day, and 5 hours training in the evenings). So far I’ve worked on a new approach to newaza attacks and a series of modules on how to fight left handers.

Corporations were once extremely made up things. The beauty of crypto is that DAOs are still only slightly past the point where they were extremely made up.

I’m currently trying this thing where EVERY time I consume some piece of information, I ask myself “what is the outcome I want out of this?” It’s a weird move, like exercising a (mental) muscle I never even knew existed.

Judo training log: I keep not coming regularly, and then using that as an excuse to default to drops, when I should be aiming for standing ippon seoi and kouchi makikomi. May be dropping by KL for a training stint again though.

This is going to lead to some weird shit, and we haven’t even seen the beginning of it. https://x.com/puntium/status/1784313198801523036

It’s been entertaining watching CT learn that fight stamina is very different from stamina in just about every other sport context. A huge chunk of combat sport training is just being able to keep your presence of mind as your body starts shutting down mid-fight.

Given the long arc of human history, I’d be very surprised if memecoins were the first iteration of “let’s all get together and have fun and make money!!!!!1!!”

Well! This seems like a classic capital cycle story! https://www.adweek.com/media/hodinkee-crown-caliber/

Need a new term for the vibe you get when you’re looking at profit maximising crypto folk and they know they’re going to get rich but also that it’s all made up and it doesn’t matter and it’s fun. Oh, right. It’s DEGEN, isn’t it?

I deeply endorse such an ideology. Bullish both degen and communism! https://vitalik.eth.limo/general/2024/04/01/dc.html

It’s actually a little hilarious to hear folk talking about CEXs in real life (especially if they pronounce it as ‘sex’). At a meetup last month I heard an ‘I do BD for multiple projects’ type talk about his experience with various CEXs to a woman. I had to fight to stay straight-faced.

Some drama in my bird app feed about Perplexity being an LLM on top of Google search. Which would imply the bulk of AI apps aren’t disruptive, no profit potential, bla bla. In the end the current most disruptive technology is crypto, because everyone hates it.

I think there have been many startups over the years that attempt to do ‘founder/builder community’ and none of them have taken off and it’s an interesting exercise to think about why. Communities are hard enough to get off the ground; they probably shouldn’t be venture funded? 🤷‍♂️

I can’t believe we’re getting to Verkle Trees next. That used to seem like to some kind of sci-fi endpoint.

It strikes me that at this point I’ve memorised the entire Eras tour set list, having listened to it on repeat for the previous five months.

I did NOT expect my writing on Cognitive Flexibility Theory to show up on reforge’s podcast! Fareed Mosavat opens with how some kinds of knowledge work in business is tacit, and built from large collections of cases:
