What’s up today?

You don’t wear a mask to protect yourself, you wear a mask to protect others.

NOT wearing a mask is a sign of disrespect to everyone else. Its a me, me me sign. Thatcherism, basically. Call it out!!!

But a mask is not enough to protect yourself and others (from BLM protest today in Brussels):

The things you see when you don’t have your box of ball bearings with you…

They can find other polis fast enough but they cannot replace police horses with broken legs in a hurry.

Yes, maybe horses in such situations are not a good idea: yesterday a police man in London who did fall from his horse, last week a stolen horse. Reminds me of Hannibal’s elephants.

The twat in London rode into a set of traffic lights. I hope the horse is OK.

Well I dont actually, the horse is used as a weapon so sod the animal lovers who will inevitably whine.

I think many here would find this podcast interesting. I’d like to tag @dirvine and others @maidsafe if you have any spare time to give a listen. This is about using AI to decentralize organizations. The code AFAIK is not yet open source but that is something they are apparently working towards.
I’m thinking this might be interesting for the online collaborative platform for artists that I’m trying to stew up, this or some other form of governance. A lot to hash out there still.

Blockchain is still not ready for the masses, or even the few!

I mean, why don’t wallets have some simple checks. Fee larger than transfer, fee larger than an adjustable threshold etc.

Maybe some do, but this is basic when dealing with money.

Very true. To compensate for the irreversible nature of the system there should adequate measures in place to prevent user error.
An opportunity for us to start with a better system from day 1.
