This week’s Open Thread.
- spandrell: We don’t have to tweet like this. urbit is probably the future of social media just like #DeFi will replace TradFi.
- Scott Alexander: Shilling For Big Mitochondria. Fat loss pill that actually works – and invented (and banned) during the 1930s to boot. Minor problem? 0.01% mortality rate. Seems fine tradeoff if alternative is 40% obesity rate.
- Niccolo Soldo interviews Glenn Greenwald
- Paul Robinson: Watching the Disinformation Watchers
- [twitter] Old Richard Hanania thread on Stalin
- [comment] Bashibazuk on Arkona
- Киреев: Электоральный сценарий “Наталья Поклонская – президент России”. Exotic but not altogether implausible scenario how world-famous waifu Natalia Poklonskaya can become Russian President. [in Russian obv]
I’ll probably start doing these links posts again in Open Threads, but will only post a few unlike in the old days. It used to take up far too much time. But selecting the best/most notable and only doing short commentaries on them if that only takes a few minutes.
