In 500 years when people look back at the widely-accepted beliefs humans held about economics back in 2024, what do you think they will see as the biggest thing that we misunderstood?

I was victimized in this senseless attack yesterday in Dolores Park and the cops didn’t do anything. *clutches pearls* #HappyPride 🏳️‍🌈❤️🫧

Electric aviation would be so great. Looks like this breakthrough in battery tech gets us one step closer! https://newatlas.com/aircraft/catl-worlds-largest-ev-battery-manufacturer-aircraft/

Some don’t know how much extinction is happening right now. But even those of us who do cannot FEEL it. It was helpful to me to overcome my numbness by listening to this 9 minute podcast my friend Alexa created. It’s beautiful. https://www.lifeworld.earth/episodes-blog/extinctionisloneliness https://warpcast.com/aviationdoctor.eth/0x9fd9fa6e

After reading Three Body Problem I have an idea for a game inspired by dark forest theory: Every player is in a certain bounded area wearing an Apple Watch. Everyone antes up prize money. The microphone on the device detects sound, and the person whose watch makes the least sound throughout the game play wins the money. You can throw noisemakers at your competition, although you may be deterred because your own watch might pick up the sound as well. And naturally, if the watch stops detecting your pulse, you’re out. 🤪 Interesting game theory and sounds fun to me!

Govs already give grants for science, energy research, the arts... but are there any examples of retroactive public goods funding for ecosystem regeneration? Could we get greedy, vapid, climate deniers out onto the land, working to improve soil health purely out of financial speculation? https://warpcast.com/schulkin/0x7a17dc40

The psychological mechanisms that drive the airdrop farmer are so powerful. What are the best ways that we can prototype having civic institutions do airdrops in order to get large numbers of people to engage in socially-beneficial behaviors?

Still thinking about the funniest thing I heard last weekend: "Sitting is just resting uncomfortably." Like, imagine the meeting where everyone already knew about laying down, and then some masochist pitched the concept of sitting.

A large company aligning every employee’s comp w/ climate impact is the type of dream-come-true thing that seemed like a near impossibility a couple decades ago. Celebrate the win! Curious what learnings emerge from this. https://sustainablebrands.com/read/organizational-change/lego-employee-pay-linked-climate-goals

A decade or two ago, I used to talk about the climate crisis a lot. Now that the problem has gotten much worse, you would think I'd talk about it more, but I've noticed that I actually talk about it less. I'm less likely to bring it up in conversation. I'm trying to understand why. Does anyone else relate to this?

Small feature request: Timestamps for direct casts. If I look at an old thread it might show "3mth" for when a message was sent, but there's no way to know what day or time it was sent. Would be nice to see that upon hover or when I press and hold the message. Or display date changes between the messages in the thread.

Ethereum is a master of tantra. It teaches those that love it that there is no rush. Do not cling to a goal or a timeline. Relax and be present to what is happening. Stop urgently seeking the pop, and what naturally unfolds over time will lead to ecstasy. ✨🧘✨

Nice to see that Hugging Face is working on "Energy Star"-style ratings for AI models. Would love to see all these systems developing smart routing of each query so that simple/easy ones are routed to energy efficient models. https://huggingface.co/blog/sasha/energy-star-ai-proposal

OK, I’ve reached a big milestone editing videos for Trick or Treat. The structure, timing, and all the difficult visual stuff is now done. Next up is audio levels, music, sound effects, titles, color, subtitles, etc. The good news is that I personally VERY MUCH enjoy watching these. Hopefully you will like them too!

Even as supply of renewable energy increases exponentially, so does our demand. This demand growth has been postponing the collapse of the fossil fuel energy business. What’s most likely to solve this problem: A) New energy sources like fusion, B) Slowing demand (ie: energy efficient quantum computing), C) ???

Would be funny to protest the Tornado Cash verdict by creating a tongue-in-cheek campaign to… - Ban HTTPS - Demand Meta put all WhatsApp messages on senders’ Facebook profiles - Demand Google put replays of incognito Chrome sessions on YouTube - Demand Amazon add “Credit card numbers you may like” to checkout
