Good news is that it’s good news.
If it really looks this good, packs 5g, and has a decent battery….
“Bitcoin is the first example of a new form of life. It lives and breathes on the internet. It lives because it can pay people to keep it alive. It lives because it performs a useful service that people will pay it to perform. It lives because anyone, anywhere, can run a copy of its code
because all the running copies are constantly talking to each other. It lives because if any one copy is corrupted it is discarded, quickly and without any fuss or muss. It lives because it is radically transparent: anyone can see its code and see exactly what it does.
It can’t be changed. It can’t be argued with. It can’t be tampered with. It can’t be corrupted. It can’t be stopped. It can’t even be interrupted.
If nuclear war destroyed half of our planet, it would continue to live, uncorrupted. It would continue to offer its services. It would continue to pay people to keep it alive.”
– Ralph Merkle quoted in the Bitcoin Standard

I’ve been on Twitter since 2008 but never really gotten into it. I remember the first day I logged in and was like “WTF is this fire hose and what’s a RT?”. Years passed, oh fuck, a decade passed and here I am now. Still scratching my head wandering if Twitter has a place in my life.
I’ve purged my list of people I follow several times over the years but it still felt so chaotic.
I tried making lists a while back but didn’t make specific enough categories and didn’t throw everyone in their place. Over the weekend I sat my happy ass on the couch watching shitty Bravo with the wife and put every person in a list, sometimes multiple lists.
This took forever. The quickest way to put file contacts was on the Surface Pro 3 with touch screen. Literally the first time tablet touch was faster than a phone or PC.
After several hours of trash TV and fingering the Surface, my lists were complete. It felt great.
I flipped out my phone and hopped in a list and it felt amazing to scroll through tweets that had a general subject. Sure there were occasional “off topic” tweets in my lists but that’s ok. For the majority of the tweets they were on subject with the list title and if not, I knew the author was someone who participates in that space.
It’s been 3 days and I really like Twitter. I should say, I like my lists.
