    The recent crypto world has been mostly Greed Driven Development (GDD). That doesn’t lead to the best companies or product/technical designs. The products used by the most people will make everyone involved the most money. I hope the next wave focuses on the latter instead.

    If the unconscious mind is our mental operating system then consciousness is just a (small) active process. Strange to think that we’re unaware of the core “kernel” of our mind.

    If people are going to have no secrets anymore, I want the same from institutions. Hate the information asymmetry of privacy for the powerful, surveillance for the powerless.

  11. With trust as a primitive, crypto promises to disintermediate traditionally trusted, centralized institutions. We often talk about this for banks and governments (a la Sovereign Individual). Excited to see this now for "academia". Love the idea of a "Blockchain Science Stack".

    One can easily hide their lack-of-understanding within complexity. Put another way, you can't hide lack-of-understanding within simplicity. Hence, why I seek out simplicity, clarity, and ease-of-understanding when I assess candidates - engineering or otherwise.

  14. Love this. The stable coin wrote a deep analysis of their "competitor" . At the very top they write: "Thanks to the MakerDAO team for their feedback on this post, and for their openness to constructive criticism!" to ftw.

    I have this theory that during periods of intense creative destruction, old institutions that survive at all turn into de facto banks, defined primarily by assets they manage to freeze and build moats around. Eg. Catholic church during reformation turned into a real estate bank

    If I could teach everybody in the world one thing: Wealth creation is not zero sum. Somebody making money does not mean that somebody else lost it. Capitalism is primarily a system of wealth creation, not wealth distribution. The world would be better if this was understood.

  18. . seems to be doing a great job leveraging the crowd (building community). What are the other top projects doing this, specifically with non-devs? Other one that comes to the top of my mind is (their slack has 7857 members across 223 channels).

  19. Follow up to Sapiens and Homo Deus comes out Aug 30. If this article (on institutional —> distributed trust) is any indication, it’s going to be quite good. I could spend all day listening to Harari talk about myths.

    Corporations are machines, not moral agents. They can perform better or worse at their intended function, they can fail entirely, they can spin out of control. Same with governments. Corporations and governments are machines.
