It seems that concepts like those you mention are the fundamental values motivating the majority of the core BTC community.
Of course, there’s a massive cloud of speculation surrounding the values-driven core community. But it’s still early in the evolution of these technologies. Most are still projecting the dynamics of…
You sound very angry. It’s also a bit ironic to write long-winded, angry rants on multiple comments, then attack me for writing on Medium.
In any case, c’est la vie. Have a nice life. If you can’t engage in good faith there’s no point conversing.
It’s ok. Not everyone gets it. Happy to have this conversation again in 10 years when things are a bit easier to see.
In any case, thanks for your feedback.
Wonderful article! Glad to hear more voices join the chorus identifying the core issues with our current paradigm of socially mediated online communication.
Curious to get your opinion on a related article I penned last year, which explores the psychological incentives that emerge from this underlying ad-driven paradigm.
First, note that you’ve created a straw man insofar as I’m not speaking specifically about blockchains. Blockchains are just the first example of solving the Byzantine generals problem and unlocking a new space for system-level innovations that possess improved game-theoretical properties. See my other comments for further information on that front.
The article to which I responded addresses the blockchain, not Bitcoin specifically. My perspective speaks to a novel space of experimental innovation, not a singular implementation.
This thrust of exploration will eventually settle upon new modes of representing and communicating human value at an exponentially higher…
One thing to notice is that I never mentioned blockchains, specifically. Why not? Because I consider them only one example of this emerging class of Distributed Value Representation networks. These are the bedrock technologies upon which we can now run experiments like the “pragmatarianism” you’re pitching.
