OH: "@arro is the most powerful person in ZK because she forces everyone from big funds to small projects to have to make their announcements around her conferences and events"

I just recorded a podcast with @federa that gave my real opinions on memecoins as a sort of PvP ranking algorithm that relies on creating and destroying financial assets in response to events — I am curious what @toly will think of it 😅

Imagine there were memecoins for researchers — if you had to hold 5 of them what would you hold? For me: 1. $WITTEN 2. $JVN 3. $TALAGRAND 4. $BOTT 5. $DIRAC

I feel dumber every time I read an investor writing about memecoins and trying to intellectualize it as a place for long-term investments; real 2017 ICO energy

I somehow think this is the most hilarious YouTube comment I’ve ever gotten for TCB; they really haven’t investigated who I do the podcast with and that I’ve been a clown forever 😂 https://www.vice.com/en/article/jp5nxk/the-glass-man

Only certainties in life: death, taxes, and being an Indian person who is 100% of the time “randomly searched” in Latin America and the Caribbean 🫠😅

I did a little accounting and discovered - My most successful tweets (by likes and views) are virtually always written when I’m inebriated - None of my most popular casts are ever written in a stupor Does this mean I need to drink more? 😂🤪😅

Wondering about how to think about LRTs? @mikeneuder.eth and I spent some time looking into this and coming up with a simple set of "key risks" (one might even say... Eigenrisks, lol) for LRTs https://ethresear.ch/t/the-risks-of-lrts/18799

After going to a few college hackathons recently it is clear that no one has caught really technical students’ attention quite as much as @sreeramkannan and Eigenlayer; I haven’t seen as many crazy but impassioned ideas for infra since DeFi summer

The day I feel my mission of making DeFi research real is over in the day Al Roth doesn’t think MEV is a total scam (total does a lot there btw)
