[sharing] Web3 (long) explanation and political stance 

I didn't know about a lot of the stuff written on this piece before, but I knew some, and that little just aligned with what's written here: either I'm good at foreseeing (which I might be) or the author is very good at fooling people with what they already think (might be but I fear it's not the case) or this is just a grounded explanation and political stance-so I'd like to share it!

writing is ancient earth's most foolish activity. why does this paragraph, the largest paragraph, not simply eat the other paragraphs?

taught students today about converting probability to odds. also warned them that gambling (common use of odds) is immoral and they should not do it.

cis person gender stuff, I guess 

I want someone to teach soft skills in the context of, "here's how to actually be a good collaborator", and "here's how not to be a dick to the women in your workplace"

seriously though I was wondering what people like Zimmer were doing when UATX came out with all their critiques of higher ed given the UChicago brand. It seemed to undercut his position a lot.

I am resigning from the University of Austin because I don't have a bunch of oil and gas to get a password manager and use it for a bit then I can do that

UATX must've found that picture of Pinker with Epstein and it raised too many questions. Critical support.

so it's like, okay, i guess i'm just going to have to do this in french??? fine. i just have to look up a couple words and i'm okay.

okay for whatever reason this one site i have to submit something on is deciding to be in French, and while my French is actually pretty okay, I don't want to do anything consequential, which this is, in anything other than English.

i cannot see any place to change the language and i've made sure my top several preferences in my browser are to display pages in English.
