"Deboosting" just sounds like shadowbanning.

Spent a load of time this last week or so digging in to making a Nostr client.

My coding skills are a decade out of date (and web dev was kinda different in 2012!) but started to make some progress. Buggy as hell and the code base is a mess, but now has some basic functionality.

My daily email ritual is basically:

[scan] [select all] [mark as read]...

[scan] [select, select, select...] [mark as spam] [select all] [mark as read]...

... repeat for a few more addresses

[close app]

Next time I need to explain mnemonic seed phrases I'm gonna send them over to Stephen Fry 🤣 (from ~ 1m:40s)

Why am i receiving spam to an email address i only ever used for your service, @Gemini ?

Data breach or you sold my data?

"for more information see frequently asked questions" ... a search for 'inactivity fee' brings up nothing.

Great user experience @PayPal

PayPal want to charge me for *not* using my account!

Old business account that I've not used in a couple of years. No idea how much they were going to charge me, I guess its in some T&Cs somewhere. Glad I noticed the email though, quite happy to close the account thanks!

CBDC... AND Bitcoin

Bitcoin isn't going anywhere. There's too many religious zealots prepared to hodl & stack through the worst bear market or unfavourable legislation & there's too many far flung corners of earth that discovered the humantarian use case. You can't defeat that.

I hope this is the point people realise that 99.9% of crypto and blockchain are total utter bullshit that do absolutely nothing technologic…

Say what you want, but bitcoiners know how to HODL

I think twitter has figured out that I block every single advertiser that appears in my feed and is now trying to overwhelm my efforts by making every 2nd post an advert... or is this just the new twitter if you don't pay up?

The best food in the world honestly comes from little workers cafés in Karnataka and Kerala and costs ~ a $ or 2.

If you've never had a masala dosa, idli vada sambar, appam, or puttu for breakfast (and in S. India itself) have you even lived!?

Going through some old photos... man I miss South Indian food! A lot of y'all go on about superiority of a meat diet but I know how I feel when I live on this S. Indian, simple but spicy, vege diet for extended periods (great!). And it's SO tasty!

One chow chow bath please!

If you don’t pay the $8 your tweets will be suppressed by an algorithm. Not making this shit up he said it to a room of investors yesterday & claimed this would solve hate speech. “You’ll have to scroll really far to see unverified users”
