when my 4yo son grows up it'll be amusing to him that we all used computers that couldn't understand us, and that we could either click buttons or learn to write instructions in special computer languages, which was a lucrative profession.

I keep seeing smug takes about crypto not having "real" use cases or adoption. But that's like saying voting machines have no use case in the Soviet Union. It's not an incremental evolution, it's a complete system reset. And it will have a use case when people will it. https://x.com/SMTuffy/status/1730724053135024226

When do we start programming atoms just like we program bits? i.e. nanotech wen.

I feel more stingy about tipping a delivery driver than a waiter. One walks over and the other drives over. For deliveries it feels like I'm already paying so much extra but even a waiter gets paid by the hour anyway. Idk, I guess food delivery prices feel like a ripoff?

The "Hydrocarbon fuels = dead dinos because 'fossil'" meme is a huge midwit tell.

Lying is a good thing if done with a benign intent to simplify communication.

You know, I’m actually not glad this whole Thing played out live on X. There’s a reason I stopped watching live sports. Someone wake me up when the dust has settled.

Can someone from OpenAI leak the weights for GPT5 before quitting? Asking for a friend.

Can we just call this doomer/decel thing the beginning of the Butlerian Jihad?

Flew to SF to attend YC's climate tech cofounder matching event. It was great! I also got to evangelize at least 20 people to read Casey Handmer's blog post about working on hardware, so the good news is spreading 😇

Kyte has to be the most annoying car rental service I’ve used. I’ve gotten like 10 emails and messages telling me I need to urgently verify my license even though I have till 3 hours before my rental starts. If your email has [URGENT] in the subject it better be goddamn urgent.

I think most people want to believe in a god who has the full measure of a person based on complete and intimate knowledge of all thoughts and actions. I think AI can plausibly start filling this practical need soon.

What I can never understand is people who were into WWE dunking on any other kind of speculative curiosities in fringe areas like UFO’s. Like, we know which one is strictly fake.

Bro who just replies “no” to messages that aren’t yes/no questions because he thinks it’s a banger dunk that’s about to get likes and retweets from imaginary people in his head. This is what “twitter brained” must mean.

You can’t just 80/20 your way through life. Always 100/100 the important stuff.

If you're a company that emails people to nag for attention, please at least ask your crack marketing team to not say make the subject "you asked, we delivered". I didn't fucking ask you for anything and I don't give a shit what you delivered.
