I caught up with Christine Lemmer-Webber (creator of ActivityPub) and talked about her project Spritely and the future of distributed social computing, including Farcaster, and we recorded it! Weird fun little conversation we decided to share: https://youtu.be/auWwf4rMkHE

It's so shady that Bambu 3D printers try to get you to install a network driver on any desktop computer to print over a network. This obviously isn't necessary. Reminds me of Zoom's system extension just to make link opening simpler. In the best case it's lazy. In the worst it's deeply dangerous.

I think computers can be safe AND in a user's control. Some of the EIP-3074 criticism has seemed to be stuck between claiming it would either be "unsafe" or "gatekept", so I wrote a post about a way to avoid either trap: https://blog.danfinlay.com/permissionless-permissions/

Learned about this Orch-OR theory of consciousness. To experiment a bit, I got Claude to quickly make me a binaural beat wave frequency generator/swepeer/noter. For sweeping through brain frequencies and noting the interesting ones. http://danfinlay.com/binaural/

You should be able to tag multiple channels in a post, and mute channels. Then you have both additive and subtractive feed curation. Also: subscribe to logical operations of channels (funny AND informative, for example ).

This is a particularly misguided addition of a security prompt by Apple. The user already explicitly indicated their intent to paste using the system-provided paste UI. If thats part of client code, thats a small mistake to fix: must be system level, then bake the auth into it.

Bruce Schneider wants governments to make transparent AI. I hope were not counting on their action. https://youtu.be/PqAcTax1Y4Y?list=PL85PlqXDNPJUtugLn0Krd66HsIfKwYlGu

One solution to the risk of claiming airdrops would be if airdrops stopped requiring the claim tx to be initiated by the eligible account. Let any account initiate another accounts claim process, to itself.

Carrier pigeons were immune to spam because you had to give someone a pigeon to enable them to message you. This is about carrier pigeons and nothing else.

3074 couldnt come at a better time: Theres momentum to define an onchain permissions system for smart contract accounts, and 3074 can allow EOAs to still enjoy some of its benefits.

Extremely excited to hear EIP-3074 making progress! Considered for inclusion, I hear plausibility by end of year! This is going to make awesome stuff possible!
