imagine how many projects/companies would actually succeed on its own merits if it weren't for VCs pummeling them down with unsustainable business models by funding competitors (which will also die) at a loss

Btw, this game is like a masterclass in pure game design! :blobaww:

It's a very very well-designed game, even if it's pretty simple, and not very pretty.

They're calling it Log4Shell, haha! Because apparently LogJam was already taken.

Apparently there is a remote code execution vulnerability in Log4J2?

github.com/advisories/GHSA-jfh

Why on earth is Log4J scanning log text for replacements by default at all? Much less, replacements that cause network traffic?

I’d be very interested to know more about this vulnerability.

Be safe out there, Java devs. This is a wildly popular library!

Somehow transferring large files from my computer to my friends' computers is incredibly hard, but transferring to and from Google's computer is super easy.

I think the rub comes down to this:

Cryptocurrencies are an experiment in a different kind of government than democracy. It’s a technical solution to a fundamentally social problem, namely, how to govern money.

With that in mind, the right kinds of questions to ask next are: Do we prefer crypto over democracy, or democracy over crypto to govern our money?

We should be comparing crypto to existing solutions in this space (like democracy) and see which solutions we like more.
