I need to put all of my networking protocol rants into one place for b̶o̶r̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶m̶u̶t̶u̶a̶l̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶D̶M̶s̶ easy access. Brace yourself: The CLNP fiasco at the 1992 IAB meeting:
A while back, a small group of well-meaning early adopters got together and tried to force a controversial change to scale the network. Most of the folks who *ran* the network rebelled. I'm referring of course to the IAB pushing to adopt CLNP at the IETF Boston meeting in 1992.

Thinking of May 2020 and hearing arguments along these lines: "Facebook's cryptocurrency will kill Bitcoin if China's CBDC doesn't first"
That weird interregnum between "every shitcoin has hilariously failed" and "Libra and DCEP are still waiting to launch"

I still don't understand why anyone thought bolting payments on top of messaging would be such a game-changer.
My Unsolicited Hot Signal Take: bolting a payments workflow onto a messenger app isn't going to transform the nature of the relationships between users of that app, for the same reason that bolting a Square Terminal to my mailbox wouldn't somehow turn me into a merchant

Congratulations to another miner with approximately 86TH solving a solo block on solo.ckpool.org ! There are a lot more miners now on the solo pool and if enough people are mining solo, someone will eventually be the lucky one as here. btc.com/btc/block/720175

Remember: if you point out that centralized chokepoints and trusted third parties are what powers web3, you're a toxic maximalist. (Of particular note: this podcast isn't based in Iran, much less associated with entities on the OFAC SDN list. They're Canadians speaking Farsi.)

"Overcompliance" is the term used to describe collateral damage against innocent people caused by overreach of actors who fear running afoul of sanctions. We need a new word for these attempts to gain first mover advantage by "pre-complying" in giddy anticipation of regulations
