So I tested the twitter revenue thing, boy that's gonna help them. Doesn't mater how we feel about it, they are building the sticky incentives. It actually pays relatively much more than I thought, for doing nothing you wouldn't already done. That's magic for ppl. Which brings me back to economically meaning zaps. Zapping a beer counts, zapping sub dust limit won't attract the normies. The competition and the normies are not morally aligned with us. Ppl are busy living their lives.
Made a comment on some Twitter thing today and got a bunch of angry responses about how me being a leftie is what's destroying this country. 😂 There's something increasingly funny about how ridiculous the left/right ideology has become.

AI is pretty wild. I took a snippet of a Coldcard tutorial to test. Auto coverts to the language of your choice, in your own voice, and moves your lips to look like you're actually speaking the language. Here's me in Spanish. I can't wait to make my library of tutorials accessible to the whole world. https://v.nostr.build/wQzx.mp4
I am not a perfect person, I am not a perfect “bitcoiner,” but I learn daily, my practices are better than they were last year, and I respect others wherever they are in their orange/purple journey. Changing worldviews, dropping old habits and conveniences, all while trying to survive and thrive in this world isn’t easy, which is why I believe bitcoin and freedom tools are for *anyone,* not *everyone,* at this point in time. What we meme into simplicity is still extremely complex, so if you’re ever feeling overwhelmed or nervous, you’re not alone. You don’t need to be perfect, you just need to keep learning; and at the bare minimum, get your Bitcoin off exchanges and store your nsec securely. #grownostr #Bitcoin101
Tried AI translate dubbing nostr:npub1hu3hdctm5nkzd8gslnyedfr5ddz3z547jqcl5j88g4fame2jd08qh6h8nh ‘s MONEY MONEY MONEY video to Japanese 🇯🇵 and the results were amazingly hilarious 😂 Any Japanese Nostriches who can let us know if the AI got the actual lyrics even close to correct? https://v.nostr.build/wQ8d.mp4
There is borderline anime child porn in global. Much is not marked sensitive. This makes us look really bad to new users imo. I think global feeds should be more of a hidden/advanced feature if we are going to have them at all. Which we probably shouldn't have either, there are better ways to do discovery... Thoughts? 🤔
I normally keep my Uber rides under 45 mins. But for a few reasons I ended up just getting a two-hour Uber from an airport the other day. The driver was nice but was like, “damn lol I hope Uber pays me well for this”. The issue with long rides is that the Uber driver is far away after the ride in a new territory and has to try to earn rides back to their normal location. He asked if he could at least stop for coffee or something and I said of course. So we go for a while and eventually pull over over at a convenience store and he goes to get some coffee and a snack. I go out and get a coffee too and then I pick up his tab and pay for both of us. Uber ended up calling both of us for a health check because the car was stopped. Buying him a coffee opened him up a bit so we talked for a while. He asked where I was coming from and I said Egypt, and he said he was from Ghana. While chatting and me explaining why I am coming from Egypt, he made a great point that in many places outside of the US, family is a big deal whereas in the US, it is much diminished. And as a result, it’s very important to build connections with neighbors and coworkers in place of that. Even just tell people “good morning” if you usually see them on the way to work so that people know who you are. He came to the US alone four years ago so that is something he describes having learned and a strategy he is using. Anyway as we pulled up to my destination I gave him an unusually big tip to compensate any inconvenience or unpaid time he might have getting back. A few mins later my doorbell rang and he had come up to say was super thankful for the big tip. The Uber algorithm had kind of screwed him over and the trip price (and thus his share) was low for the hassle, and he felt screwed over by Uber, but then he saw my tip which instantly fixed it. I should have checked to see if he had a lightning wallet or tried to convince him to download one if not, because then I could have done one of those social media “okay everybody tip this guy” posts. :/
