The reason I have so much passion for #Bitcoin is largely because of the model it demonstrates: a foundational internet technology that is not controlled or influenced by any single individual or entity. This is what the internet wants to be, and over time, more of it will be.
@matrix A bit ironic, considering he runs one of the biggest centralized Internet companies out there. Nevertheless, I can't disagree with the sentiment and hope that his sense of hope is accurate.
@matrix I think he's correct, in that he has a passion for the model it demonstrates.
Sadly, the model it demonstrates is that of a Ponzi scheme; the apotheosis of SV venture capital culture.
(Not to mention that the foundational technologies of the Internet are already not controlled by any single entity, but they're not directly monetisable so are invisible)
@matrix what a hypocrite, if he wanted, twitter could be using activitypub.
@matrix Well, seems like they want to reinvent the wheel, for some reason...
