Remember when we met for the first time? It was in an airport! Dallas, if I recall.

It’s got to the point where I think I miss Dallas airport.

(Oh, and my birthday request is for more pictures of Cider please!)

For six cards, you used enough energy to:

  • fly for 36 hours,
  • drive for 18,000 kilometres,
  • boil a kettle 72,000 times, or
  • use a laptop for 48 years.

I just placed a beer order with @IndependentBTN and they showed up within 30 minutes!

It’s incontraverible. Proof of work deliberately wastes copious amounts of energy …by design.

It’s like someone heard about the trolley problem and thought “yeah, that’s let’s do this!”

Imagine how architects feel about the David Brents going around calling themselves “solutions architects.”
