This is a good decision. Preferenxe falsification is a big problem in society and we need to see people's honest views. It would be really cool if Farcaster follows it, by implementing ZK likes. Can probably borrow technology from zupoll. https://x.com/wanghaofei/status/1793096366132195529

AI discourse on twitter be like... It feels like there's a large divergence in perceptions at the moment. Some people saying "OpenAI abandoned AI safety, that's proof AI safety is NGMI", some other people saying "OpenAI abandoned AI safety, that's proof OpenAI is NGMI". And I'm sure OpenAI itself has a different view

This on the part of Lumina feels very dishonorable. If you're going to do your medical thing the libertarian way, you should have the decency to not also be lawsuit-happy to shut down criticism. https://x.com/RuxandraTeslo/status/1792612160067219783

I'm really proud that ethereum does not have any culture of trying to prevent people from speaking their minds, even when they have very negative feelings toward major things in the protocol or ecosystem. Some wave the ideal of "open discourse" as a flag, some take it seriously.

Grats @dankrad @karalabe.eth you got me to interrupt my work on EIPs and make a twitter response that turned into an unscheduled poast 😀 https://vitalik.eth.limo/general/2024/05/17/decentralization.html

Farcaster should have (near-)unlimited length messages like twitter. Having used it for a while, I feel like twitter's long message feature improves its user experience and its usefulness for high quality discussion.

To me, this counts as GPT4 passing the Turing test. Still an important update that it took all the way until GPT4 to get there! https://twitter.com/tobyordoxford/status/1791030333812383960

I'm generally very impressed by llama3, but this (from 70B) is a clear phail imo.

Here's an EIP for adding a separate gas type to calldata, and putting the three gas types into a single harmonized system: https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/blob/4020064d72da32adc691cf1906f466a2c03b00f5/EIPS/eip-7706.md Hopefully it can make the discussion on what "multidimensional gas" might look like more concrete!

https://twitter.com/alz_zyd_/status/1790036197781143961 If this was available for me in 2012, would I have become an FTX bro? 😅 (Probably not, but it's still interesting to think about. IMO there's value in Zuzalu communities doing these kinds of things)

A different way to split Eurasia into two parts. (It has serious flaws, but the usual Europe/Asia split has serious flaws too; I've found value from keeping both models in my head)

Moving from downtown SF to a suburb of SF does not count as "leaving San Francisco". You're still using the same airport. You're still able to have in-person meetings with the same people. Travel time from SF downtown to your new place is significantly less than between two opposite ends of Beijing or Seoul.

How do FHE practitioners deal with the fact that whenever you mention "homomorphic" anything, stupid people on the internet act like it has something to do with homosexuality? Is there some other term that we're supposed to use? Use "FHE" without ever unrolling the acronym? Something else?

Since a lot of people are interested in fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) recently, re-upping my article from 2020 that goes into how the math works in depth: https://vitalik.eth.limo/general/2020/07/20/homomorphic.html

Github's contribution tracker seems to be very misleading. It shows very little activity, but I've made many commits to ethereum/research each day in the past week alone. Any idea what's up?

2 + 2 = 0 2 * 6 = 11 3 / 5 = 9 3² + 8² = 11² 420 * 61779 = 1 It's the new math. If you use it, it becomes much easier to make proofs of things. If you know, you know.
