there is validity in this critique. *voice first* tech is about language as transaction. human language is much more than transactional. it is imperative we think thru the unintended consequences. @BrianRoemmele @BrettKing any thoughts?

1/ Today's John Deere tractors simply don't work and can't be fixed without access to proprietary software maintained by the company. Their value, including their resale value, is highly dependent on the continued efforts of the manufacturer to keep that software up to date. pic.twitter.com/Nnom0wcNFd

Excellent @Blockstream work. Cypherpunks write code. How awesome is that?
"Five hundred 8-fold aggregates (so 4000 ranges total) can be validated in 305 ms, or 76 microseconds per range, or a 75x improvement over the old rangeproofs." @pwuille @adam3ushttps://t.co/ftB6iv049V pic.twitter.com/Z4rrXz95RQ

Though Bulletproof’s offer smaller size & 75x speed improvements over our previous Confidential Transaction range proofs, what excites me is they also have the power to prove arbitrary statements like zk-snarks & starks do, but incredibly more efficiently. https://t.co/Daw9pVaOMg

1994: “the internet means there’ll be no more governments!”
2018: “blockchain means there’ll be no more governments!”
Both nonsense, yes. But the internet still turned out to be pretty important, and it was partly because of the things that prompted people to talk like that.

“An unwelcome consequence of living in a world where everything is “easy” is that the only skill that matters is the ability to multitask. At the extreme, we don’t actually do anything; we only arrange what will be done, which is a flimsy basis for a life” https://t.co/HuhrmmDD8Z

“The state relies on its corporate partners to punish behavior it regards as problematic. Private, commercial transactions—renting a car, reserving a hotel room, buying a plane ticket—become venues for state-directed punishment for nonconformity.” https://t.co/VNrjvmRxVA
