How much recreation is too much?
On monday night Town Meeting decided to amend the budget to double the recreation subsidy given to low income families, from about $100,000 per year to $200,000 per year. Apparently, funds were running out half-way through the year. There are roughly 1,000 ...

It is obvious that we have hit a road block. The speed at which misinformation is spread is very fast, anyone's half baked imagination can come up with ideas that'll misguide the community; As it has been done for millenias. We need some thing to verify the veracity of the information, or a system to guide people to the right information in a blockchain type manner.
It is obvious people don't have the right information or even the desire to acquire the right information, they must be guided to it; an analysis of the community is in order. Observe the initial experiences of new members as they progress in their knowledge, see what concepts and ideas they grasp and in what order, according to their demographics and form a mind map / cognitive bias map to see what areas of our presentation need work.
Basically we need tests and metrics to see he probable intuitive leaps that people will make according to their experience level, could help in identifying potential candidates capable of moving the project forward.

Beware most people don't like to think for themselves they prefer to be told what is happening even when they are witnesses to the facts, verify their unconscious assumptions.

Not available?  WTF?  See https://bitcoin.org/en/development and "Development discussion takes place on GitHub and the bitcoin-development mailing list at sourceforge."  The mailing list is publicly archived and searchable.

I suppose we could move all development discussion here to your personal blog to make it more public to you, personally....

Gavin! We're having a "Disruption Summit" in Aspen July 20. You have BitCoin acolytes who would love you to join us as a speaker! I can't find an email for you (I know I know) If it sounds fun I'll send the details! (We have RFK Jr, Geordie Rose of D-Wave, G Soros--good company!)

Stop with the lockdowns already...
When I was in school, the Big Bad Boogey-Man was Russia, and we were afraid of nuclear war. I remember "duck and cover" drills in school, in case of nuclear attack. Looking back, wasn't that unnecessary fear-mongering? And not just because there didn't happ...
