Now that I've *done things*, I actually dread beginnings a little, and find myself fantasizing about skipping to the middle of projects.

As a youth, the most fun in new projects was at the beginning.

When working on new projects in my 20s and 30s, the fun moved to the middle, as I started seeing visions actualized.

Do you ever see a tweet on your timeline so bad you reevaluate the life choices that lead up to that moment?

I think my wife is deeply conflicted about my insomnia because it's supposed to be bad but in reality it's like living with elves who fix things around the house while she sleeps.

Tech companies need to design smart devices for families, not for individuals.

i.e.: The Alexa Buds are on the same Amazon account my family uses, so when I'm listening to Spotify at work with them, and my wife turns on "white noise for pets" leaving the house, I lose my stream.

I need to add gun control keywords to my mute list.

I've been on Twitter for over ten years, and I'm tired of seeing the same fallacies from both sides thrown at each other with no modifications.

Nothing new under the sun.

Is it possible for an entire industry to be afflicted with Dunning-Kruger?

When your retweets are garbage, I will turn them off.

The answers on this thread are painful.

Hiring someone to rip off their process is pretty poor practice. Telling someone to do this publicly tells me I should never do business with you.

If I started a company, how expensive would it be to hire someone to start a YouTube channel where they interview customers?

We'd release a video every 1-2 weeks and no equipment/props would be needed.

My bank just called me about something, but couldn’t tell me what it was about unless I answered my security questions.

Sorry, I’m going to assume it’s fraud and hang up 100% of the time.

I called the bank myself. Turns out it was legit.

What a stupid, broken security model.

I've been openly skeptical of Libra, but it's disturbing to see senators acting like mob bosses twitter.com/gaborgurbacs/statu

My best creative work comes from when I'm emotionally uncomfortable. When I feel satisfied, it's difficult to create.

By the way, this isn't just a Twitter nobody.

This is the admin on the mailing list where Satoshi published his whitepaper.

The amazing bit is if you check his feed, he's still talking about how bitcoin sucks.

Consistency!

David Bowie. Watch this clip pls, from a BBC interview in 1999, he predicted the internet was going to have "unimaginable" effects on society and "change the state of content" forever.
