Books and weight reps are alike.
There is light ones and there is heavy ones. The light ones pile up & feel good or bad, important or not. Heavy ones are those that really matter, but you're never going to get them without pilling up the light ones. Heavy ones will give you an emotional, intellectual &/or physical orgasm that no light ones could ever give you, but without pilling up those light ones you will collapse under the heavy ones. Light ones are the journey, heavy ones the enlightenment.

If you'd be surprised to see Bitcoin people ("aren't they libertarians?") buddy with fascism: Read @dgolumbia@twitter.com's book on Bitcoin: "The Politics of Bitcoin: Software as Right-Wing Extremism" amzn.to/2ECzoOK

You do you, Bitcoin / Blockchain community. I didn't expect any ethics in the first place.

I can't help but feel very suspiscious when someone brings up blockchains in a conversation about decentralization. I just don't really buy into it at all. Social applications on top of Ethereum? Yeah, love to ruin the planet with proof of work algorithms just to post a cat gif.

I guess I will need coffee if I am to stay awake until it is time to go to bed.

Finished “La petite dame en son jardin de Bruges”, by Charles Bertin, and I must say I was surprised. A really nice and sweet little novel about the childhood memories of the grand-mother. How many times had I flashes of my own grandma… A kind book about nostalgia.

Peter Randa’s “Les 7 cryptes d’hybernation”. Another one from my piles of old , french in that particular case. I know it is not the greatest, but it could be perfect for my tired brain!

*Facebook ordered to stop collecting user data by Belgian court*

"… #Facebook had broken privacy laws by tracking people on third-party sites in the latest salvo in a long-running battle between the Belgian commission for the protection of privacy (CPP) and the social network. […] Facebook has also been ordered to delete all data it had gathered illegally on Belgian citizens, including people who were not users of the social network."

Can we please devalue cryptocurrencies so peple stop doing stupid shit like mining currency on folks smart phones?

Or are you that much of an asshole to think it's perfectly fine to waste other people's resources on this nonsense?

Ok, still some work to do on that Windows 10.

But seriously, it looks so bad, so ugly, so… unusable, I wouldn’t work on that on a daily basis. Luckily that one isn’t for me.
