@topfunky It has always been striking how much new tech comes from self-taught developers, not CS-trained engineers So glad you had a good time. Your music with @amandapalmer was a #foocamp highlight. Thanks to both of you for being part of it!Reminds me of this Far Side cartoon: is amazing. Will showed it to me yesterday, and I was blown away. Beautiful space imagery. The real thing.’s heard the story of how Cecil the lion died. Technology enables us to understand how he lived. #cecil employee status for on-demand workers is a terrible idea Labor Dept take notice #WTFeconomyThank you for your service, Mike Bracken! Beautiful words from @pahlkadot on how @MTBracken has inspired so many.

Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly@skiptrace_ @mrmoneymustache In an overly financialized economy, that no longer holds true. See @mrmoneymustache But trickle down with a twist. Not the make-the-rich-pay-less-tax variety, which has been so demonstrably wrong.@mrmoneymustache uses this same approach in pitching frugality to the rich so it becomes an aspiration for the poor new month, a new attitude, and, if all goes well, a new Thing coming! join the patreon here and support the art:

Saw Ant Man, and thought it was in the upper quartile of Marvel movies. Dopey, but lots of fun! (at @grandlake) @brennannovak maybe treating a public good as such and managing it appropriately is the next real disruption.
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyFrom atoms to bits to atoms @billjaneway’s smart take on regulatory friction’s impact on #WTFeconomy valuations@jgoldschrafe I think that’s true of these statistics, in which case I completely agree. But are you sure that’s how they are calculated?Yes indeed!! questioning the rise of part time employment Framed as “debunking” the gig economy #WTFeconomy@brennannovak @atduskgreg I don't disagree. But when "public" doesn't work well, failing to explore alternatives is foolish@waxpancake @atduskgreg "The difference between theory and practice is always greater in practice than it is in theory" cuts both ways@brennannovak @atduskgreg something used by everyone at lower cost? I think that's a good thing, regardless of who does it. (2/2)@brennannovak @atduskgreg No. But consider this: in most cities, public transit used by tiny fraction, loses money. What if you had (1/2)@requemao Relative to taxis or public transit? And data or just opinion?@Jewish_Marksman Yep. But the notion that profit is *all* that matters has been deeply damaging.A very hopeful sign. The Chicago School influence has been very damaging to our society. Not if it ends up cheaper and better.How Lyft and Uber aren’t just aiming to improve taxis, but public transportation do we want in the next Librarian of Congress? FWIW, I nominate @carlmalamud, @brewster_kahle, or @dchudWhen big businesses retool, we don’t imagine this: toshiba going from disk drives to lettuce! via @monkchips
I agree. Policy makers and politicians must take notice! proposes new air traffic control rules (and autonomous technology) for delivery drones #WTFeconomyThis kind of taxonomy really helps us to understand how the on-demand #WTFeconomy ecosystem will develop @carlmalamud is the real deal. He should be honored as a true hero of the Internet! Well, Yoda is kind of a vampire slayer. But just think: Joss Whedon would have had to come up with another name for Buffy!@apylak @LutzFinger Yes, of course. But consider the analogy with hardware.

@marcscribner @transportdata @mattyglesias I think the point was the reverse: that it is far better than the taxi industryThis is very cool. Check it out: and’s 1924 commentary on the on-demand economy: @mattyglesias Driver for uber or taxi co?Americans can find an earthlike planet 1400 lightyears away, but can do nothing about the plague of guns in our own country?
