I’m slowly learning simplicity of language by squeezing every letter I can from my tweets. Now seeing how crucial it is for writing in general.
"utilize" 👉 "use"
"however" 👉 "but"
"in order to" 👉 "to"
"in the event that" 👉 "if"
"therefore" 👉 "that's why"
"has the ability to" 👉 "can"
"due to the fact that" 👉 "because"
The crypto scene in Texas is about to get a lot more interesting…
The 5th Circuit just dismantled the SEC's power to enforce securities law. This decision is beyond radical. It is nihilistic. https://twitter.com/prof_jpc/status/1527003339644362756

Would love opinions from @balajis, @ESYudkowsky, @lifeext, @FHIOxford, @NatashaVitaMore, @zoltan_istvan et al.
My sense is that this could be a powerful element in amplifying the already mind-blowing audience growth these ideas have had in the last few decades. Thanks!
I've been shocked at how little the cultivation (修炼) genre is known in the communities seeking to upgrade humanity to transcend natural limits, as with eternal life. It resonates with me and inspires me - look at how aligned it is! Let's get the word out!
Immutable money, infinite frontier, eternal life. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/may/06/no-death-and-an-enhanced-life-is-the-future-transhuman
If that sounds like you, drop a comment or a DM. Initial plan is an FB group but I'm open to Clubhouse, Twitter Spaces, Discord, whatever to hang & jam with my brothers & sisters in challenging the heavens for strength, health, and eternal life.
From that tiny moment of enlightenment, it was clear that to follow my Dao I need a group of like-minded friends who not only love Xianxia (仙俠) and Cultivation (修炼) but see it as a philosophy relevant to our life in present reality.
...that cultivation is now in my growth paradigms.
Now it makes so much sense that I am delighted and inspired by the genre. Growth one of my highest values AND my top internal growth slogan is "Inward & Upward" - a core pillar of the cultivation mindset!
This morning while lifting, my mind drifted to future plans and ideas for growth, and an inner voice said "Hey, let that all go to be present for this moment's cultivation technique (static press)". Then I burst out laughing to see...
The Pulitzer Prizes for lies/coverups are infuriating, and part of a broader pattern of institutions building trust, misusing it, getting caught, and losing trust.
Which means we now get the joy of rebuilding them in modern ways (crypto, @PronomosVC, etc)
Pulitzer Prizes were announced yesterday. As you may know, @nytimes has more Pulitzers than any other newspaper.
What you don't know is how many of those…
On virtue, venture, family, freedom, crypto and (of course) building startup countries on the ocean.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
