I've got 252000 DOGE hiding in a wallet on a failed hard drive for similar reasons 😬
I'm a tech guy and I can say with confidence I've lost every private key I've ever held within three years or so. Excited to see this important technology go mainstream with no recourse and tied to real assets. Please share your own stories in the comments!One of the most significant side-effects of the rise of crypto is we're *finally* giving everyone a public/private key pair What cypherpunks had tried unsuccessfully to do for yrs w/ ideology is happening w/ crypto incentives This has *far* reaching consequences warning long🧵

This is awesome stuff from Glitch and I hope it'll get some good adoption over tools like Linktree!
We've let the web shrink down to one puny "link in bio" on your social media profile, with services trying to charge you money for *links*! So we're fixing that at @Glitch, with the new FREE Glitch In Bio — a links page that does anything the web can do. glitch.com/glitch-in-bio

This is a really interesting podcast, but this quote from Dan Moore got me:
"the value of software to reduce human misery"
I really do hope that we can all see it like so, and strive to make changes that actively improve folks' lives!

Things like this, and very slow build/test/deploy lifecycles are pretty low-hanging fruit - makes a huge difference, as well as making your teams happier!
We recently found that the new 2021 M1 MacBooks cut our Android build times in half. So for a team of 9, $32k of laptops will actually save $100k in productivity over 2022. The break-even point happens at 3 months. TL;DR Engineering hours are much more expensive than laptops!

I'm very happy to step up - it's a great plugin and I'd love to help continue the great work that @daspilker has done over the years 👏🏽
Just to update on this - I'm a maintainer now, it's been released as 1.78 this morning, and I'll see over the coming weeks if there's anything other high-priority to ship 🚀 (jvt.me/mf2/2021/10/jy…)

Thanks for covering this, there was some really good discussion - I do hope that more folks share their salaries to help more junior / underrepresented groups get what they're worth!
