As a nerd, I wish somebody had phrased this way to me in my 20s: Saving in labor paychecks is linear, saving in capital is exponential. You can buy things with linear costs from exponential savings without them making a dent in your savings.

Det är ett år kvar till valet. Arbetslösheten är kaoshög. När Göran Persson var statsminister förtidspensionerade S rekordmånga för att försköna arbetslöshetsstatistiken. Igår presenterade Socialdemokraterna en ny typ av förtidspension. Varsågoda att dra era egna slutsatser.

Important thread for anybody who thinks sex workers are oppressed, victims, lack agency, etc.
I'm just so sad. Sex work rescued me from a soul crushing life, it gave me an escape - and my story is a common one! The moralistic pressure against porn as inherently exploitative is extraordinarily damaging, particularly to the underprivileged. 1/

One of the things that makes me most pessimistic about the future of human civilization is that we have no system for evolving new nations and methods of governance. There's no experimentation, no way to make your own country and actually try new things.

Why fight child abuse by arresting the abusers when you could instead install a permanent surveillance tool on everyone's phone that will quickly expand in scope just like every other tool of its kind? arstechnica.com/information-…

Eroding privacy under the guise of fighting terrorism and/or child exploitation is a tactic for intimidating critics by putting them in the uncomfortable position of appearing to defend terrorism/abuse. I think this is a logical conclusion given the repeated historical pattern.

Imagine the government hacking your phone, stealing some old photo of you in a swimming pool, and then leaking it alongside a lie that it was taken by some horrible boss they want people to think you're screwing. Sound crazy? Read the story:

Crypto is regulated by math, open-source and objective. Humans participate voluntarily. Fiat is regulated by men, closed-source and subjective. Humans participate under coercion. The next 10 years will be a volatile flow of humans from the latter to the former.

I see a lot of people scared to join a D&D game for the first time because they don't want to be a burden and I'm here to tell you that good DMs *love* new players. They bring joy and enthusiasm and precious beautiful ignorance to the table.
