What I was saying a year ago:

What they say now:
Central Bank boss says bitcoin is here to stay – Independent.ie

They are a reality because of “the ease with which transactions can occur between counter-parties located anywhere in the world, the relatively low cost of effecting payment and transmitting funds and the fact that many large technology companies are household names that are trusted”.

What Is a Bitcoin, Really?

What Is a Bitcoin, Really?

That’s the question I’ll answer in this post. Along the way, I’ll introduce several key Bitcoin concepts. You’ll see for yourself how bitcoins are secured and how they’re transferred.

bitcoin symbol What Is a Bitcoin, Really?First and foremost, a bitcoin is a unit of account, in the same sense that a gallon is a unit of volume, or a gram is a unit of weight. You can’t pick up a bitcoin and hold it in your hand like you can a dollar bill. But that’s OK, because that’s not what’s important. What’s important is that:

  • Bitcoins can be possessed.
  • Bitcoins can be transferred.
  • Bitcoins are impossible to copy.

These three properties, combined, allow bitcoins to function effectively as a system of distribution of wealth. And fundamentally, that’s what makes bitcoins useful.

Extended cognition involves more direct connection to people’s brains, allowing mood, thought patterns and information to be altered in the brain. Neural interfaces get information out of people’s brains more efficiently, ultimately allowing a machine-enabled form of telepathy.

Everything Is Broken — The Message — Medium

The problem with the normals and tech is the same as the problem with the normals and politics, or society in general. People believe they are powerless and alone, but the only thing that keeps people powerless and alone is that same belief. People, working together, are immensely and terrifyingly powerful.

The Pitchforks Are Coming… For Us Plutocrats – Nick Hanauer – POLITICO Magazine

Here’s what I say to you: You’re living in a dream world. What everyone wants to believe is that when things reach a tipping point and go from being merely crappy for the masses to dangerous and socially destabilizing, that we’re somehow going to know about that shift ahead of time. Any student of history knows that’s not the way it happens. Revolutions, like bankruptcies, come gradually, and then suddenly. One day, somebody sets himself on fire, then thousands of people are in the streets, and before you know it, the country is burning. And then there’s no time for us to get to the airport and jump on our Gulfstream Vs and fly to New Zealand. That’s the way it always happens. If inequality keeps rising as it has been, eventually it will happen. We will not be able to predict when, and it will be terrible—for everybody. But especially for us.

Workaholism in America Is Hurting the Economy | New Republic

But it’s not just policy fueling our overwork; it’s also cultural. Professionals, managers, and executives with a smartphone spend 72 hours a week (including the weekend) checking work e-mail. It’s become a nonstop world, especially for professional workers. But all employers are offering fewer vacation days and sick days than they used to. And those who are lucky enough to get paid vacation days aren’t using them. A Glassdoor survey found that three-quarters of American employees don’t use all of their vacation time. The average person takes just half of what she’s allotted. Fifteen percent don’t take any time whatsoever.
