If educators and students want to add context and asterisk Washington's legacy with "yeah but he owned slaves", ok, so what? I don't owe Musk or Maher any consideration. Their motivations are juvenile.

Two grown men talking seriously about the woke mind virus, complaining that people are being taught Washington owned slaves. Clown show.

Probably not. My own experience… There’s a line in Bob Dylan’s ‘Make you feel my love’ where he says “I could hold you for a million years” and it wasn’t until I held my own child that I deeply felt the meaning of that line.

has a tendency to play big brain devil's advocate on topical events that he has no stake in. frustrates those with actual skin in the game.

I checked out many years ago when the most common email prompts to answer Qs had two themes: - how do I make as much money as possible doing as little as possible - theoretically, what's the most efficient way to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible

As someone technical-ish but not an engineer, easier to build a nostr client or farcaster client? Have an idea.

Agreed on the blurriness.

Should there be a brand/story for protocols? TLS, SMTP...

Here lies the conundrum. The vc-backing means they need the protocol to be a profitable rent-seeker, which can sometimes be a net negative against larger altruistic goals of a protocol.

Why couldn't there simply be core dev contributors who can access grants or funding similar to Bitcoin core devs?

Farcaster should 100% be focused on allowing sign up to protocol by third-party apps.

I hate having to defend regulator positions. The reality has been an endless list of pointless and often ponzi tokens that do none of these things above and financially destroy the general public who don't recognize this. I don't think making up your own $bucks for your service and calling it "ownership" is a win.

Flagging bug on Jam @betashop - main feed doesn't indicate these are replies ina thread. - clicking on post take you to original thread they are responding to, loses context of their place https://photos.app.goo.gl/PpH3VePmkJux2Y3E9

I'm curious as to why this hasn't been the case and not the core focus of protocol team (I know the standard response is "not on mainnet yet"). On nostr there's numerous Twitter clones, blog hosting, video, radio apps, even an app to share/comment on beats and mixes for recording artists.

Otherwise what's actually being built is a social app with a somewhat novel way of using evm to connect an app marketplace.
