fair- and if you pay 1sat/vB your tx will likely fall off the mempool

Last year, you probably learned a lot about Ukraine, Taiwan, and Iran. Those countries remain important, but it’s imperative that you learn about these flashpoints too: Serbia-Kosovo, Armenia-Azerbaijan, the Solomon Islands, and Haiti. I introduce each here: https://read.pourteaux.xyz/p/flashpoints

anywhere i can find stats on farcaster activity?
Farcaster and Nostr both want to address this issue, and approach it from different design philosophies and with different tradeoffs.
Those who want a moderated social media experience, and those who want censorship resistance aren't at odds at all. In fact, their goals are perfectly aligned. They are noticing different real failures in the way social works today.
We urgently need a native social layer for the internet. It must be a protocol, it can't be a company. I wrote about the different ways that Nostr and Farcaster are trying to achieve this. h/t to @fiatjaf @maciek https://pourteaux.substack.com/p/the-moral-imperative-of-a-distributed

You can take the quiz yourself. It's linked in the post. Interested to see your results!
The old left vs right political compass doesn't make sense anymore. There's an upstream issue that has been forced into focus: the role of institutions.
