Potpourri, Shameless Self-Promotion 8 Comments

(Get it, like “more Potpourri”?)

In my previous post I forgot to mention these items:

==> I had a blog post at Independent remarking on the 10th anniversary of the Bitcoin whitepaper.

==> This fictional piece from Scott Alexander is excellent.

    Since there’s an election on, and my future largely depends on what you guys come up with. 🙂

    I guess I’m missing the context of Scott Alexander’s piece. Is it a satire? A social commentary? An obvious allegory for something? Or is it just a (shockingly effective) creepypasta for Halloween? It’s very well written, and I want to appreciate it properly, but I have no idea how to think about it.

    I’m boycotting SSC, since Scott A. banned me from the comments section for insulting Elizabeth Warren.

      What did you say?

        Is “Pocahonky” permitted?


    • Rory says:

      Sounds more like SSC is boycotting you.

        He can’t fire me! I quit!

        (It’s a long story but my comment was admittedly a little crass and technically a violation of his rules, so whatever.)
