Too many similarities to telling people about philosophy.

Skimming the replies discredits crypto so much.

A couple examples of people being awful. I think awful stuff is more normal/typical than people pretend.

The world championship chess match has begun:

wow i skimmed the other broadcast with weaker players doing commentary and it’s so different Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi | Game 1 | World Chess Championship | Howell, Houska, Snare - YouTube

i haven’t watched the game yet but just skimming, the one i will watch is basically just watching the game and analyzing moves. the other broadcast is constantly interviewing people and doesn’t appear to have much analysis of chess positions. they have a stronger differentiation between broadcasts than i expected. one is has like none of the stuff i normally skip past and the other one is like 80% stuff i would skip…

the “deep dive” one currently has more views (470k to 320k) but it makes sense that the people watching live or early would be biased towards that one. i’m curious to check the views in a month. i also want to check for e.g. game 4 to compare with game 1. I figure a lot more casual viewers will stop watching after the first game or two.

I am part of a small market (with more than average growth) – for my work, 2x in the last 2 yrs is an understatement. It seems that there is a lot of money around looking for a place to go.

In general wrt tech jobs (that I’m exposed to), my guess is that a 50% pay bump in the last 12 months is available, mb not to everyone, but definitely to some.

On the extreme end, I know ‘css developers’ making very respectable salaries. WRT CSS: way to much IMO, but if there’s no supply then what is an employer to do?

The viral narrative about Twitter’s new CEO being a woke racist – due to one old tweet – is false.
