Yep normal exercise with the cylinder blocks
It’s awesome lol
Didn’t realize, have how updated
Haven’t been on it for a few years but for a long time before that it was just way too political in a cynical and distracting way
Baby has arrived. His name is Adam and he and mom are healthy and happy. So far the overall gestalt with baby #2 is that of rewatching an old favorite movie. You get reminded of many wonderful beats and moments, and notice nuances you didn’t see on the last viewing.
Hydration and rest. Get an IV drip for hydration if you can’t keep water down
Is it really forgotten? Bouguereau is my favorite painter.
Fine in principle but if you’re going to subvert a good trope you have to do a good job! (I actually liked the part where he acknowledged he wasn’t Batman and didn’t have power beyond ascertaining the truth.)
I thought it was great but was a paradigmatic case of one too many endings. Could have wrapped it up after the main reveal, the last denouement was the silly part IMO
I liked the twitter views thing before I realized that it was so unreliable as to be basically bullshit
Basically everyone I have managed to get an invite for gets dissuaded by some aspect of the technical friction. Including technically savvy people. Sucks for me!
Same. It is possible to be a combination of genre savvy and production savvy to the point where you can almost directly perceive the tropes and other cues. Best example of this is movie version of Tinker Tailor. So many converging giveaways of the “surprise” ending, from tropes to casting decisions
Realized recently that I fall pretty hard on the "excruciatingly meaningful" side of your scylla/charybdis classic. According to your framework, such as it is, am I in for trouble?
Insane decision from Twitter, especially in the particulars (linktree??) Farcaster still allowed though :) https://twitter.com/twittersupport/status/1604531265419591681?s=46&t=VJ4dKqIUkbon-hBADN_DnA
Great thread! Fought the client to read it though. Click read more every two casts and having the click send me to a new thread rendering state is painful
* 4000 characters but only in replies * 4000 characters but you can’t retweet/recast it past 280 (so funneling longer content towards replies, incentivizing a shorter top level post)
Ideas: * content length so that it fits in one screen with the default font (e.g. screenshot essay as a native constraint) * 4000 characters, but as an “attachment” (requiring a click) rather than intrinsic post content
4000 character limit on Twitter seems bad to me. Genuinely surprised he went for op ed length instead of 420 chars.
Aspiration is hard to crystallize into a stable noun
Starting to suspect that people are underestimating the value of having the follower/following relationships automagically work all the time. I’m a normie user; the more intuitively universal and decentralized things are, the more value I see in the protocol.
The whole magic of blockchain to me is preserving this sort of thing across contexts and I don’t yet understand the arguments about followers being different in this regard
