i think i have pretty substantial quibbles with, like, moxie's whole way of thinking about things, but this was worth the read:
"However, if they had built a platform to buy and sell images that wasn’t nominally based on crypto, I don’t think it would have taken off. Not because it isn’t distributed, because as we’ve seen so much of what’s required to make it work is already not distributed. I don’t think it would have taken off because this is a gold rush."
@brennen Yeah I had mixed thoughts but also it raises some great points. The gall for him to say he isn’t into crypto the day after doing a worldwide release of his very own shitcoin in Signal was a bit much though.
@vortex_egg yeah, that sure is a thing.
there's a lot else here i have Thoughts on but also i'm just... fucking exhausted and pretty much totally defeated i guess.
