    I'm a proponent of crypto in general, but your last point about ransomware extortionists has me second-guessing the whole thing. 60 minutes did a story on it last week, which seems to be freely available here. Starts at 2:00. Though, surprisingly, they kind of just gloss over the crypto part.

    Thought this was a really fun video illustrating how Lil Nas X bought a beat online, made a fire song, and basically hustled it to the top through the internet. Number 1 for a month now.

    I'm a Lindelof fan but I know nothing about Watchmen so I'm wondering, how original of a story is this show?

    edit:

    Lindelof says, "For those not familiar with the brilliant source material, just know that EVERYTHING in this show was built upon the foundation created by the unbelievable artistry of Moore & Gibbons. I will continue to sing their names until I can sing no longer, for I am only here because of them."

    I feel sorry for people who haven't already accepted the top-level writing has been trash for at least 2 seasons now and will continue to be. Enjoy the spectacle of it and be happier.

    I'm sorry to hear this. No books are coming to mind immediately but if I think of one I'll let you know. Well this is certainly news to me. What have been the reforms that are causing toxicity?

    Besides the ubiquitous and already mentioned, in Philadelphia we have Indego bike share where you can pay $10/month for unlimited bike rides through the many docking stations throughout the city. It’s a life changer never having to worry about the whereabouts and security of my own personal bike.

    Right now there's a little doodle for the reddit logo to congratulate UVA on winning the NCAA tournament last night and it really brought me back to the days when this was common. Fun times. Of course you can't see it from the redesign, fittingly.

    You can see a catalog of every one there's been at r/logo.

    As a Bernie supporter, I'm more inclined to give Beto a chance after reading this. Just the fact that he was so technically capable in 1988 is appealing.

    An undoubtedly horrific subreddit that always seemed to comply with reddit TOS and the admins has been banned, probably related to the NZ shooting video that was in the subreddit yesterday until it was taken down by admins. Looks like they're getting ahead of MSM discovering that this shit exists on the site?

    Will add any updates here.

    r/gore is gone as well.

    From @nacho:

    It's not ahead of controversy, it's in response to the Reuters article calling out /r/watchpeopledie.

    Members of a group called “watchpeopledie” on internet discussion board Reddit, for example, discussed how to share the footage even as the website took steps to limit its spread.

    Reddit - which has over 20 investors, including Conde Nast owner Advance Publications - said it was actively monitoring the situation in New Zealand.

    “Any content containing links to the video stream are being removed in accordance with our site-wide policy,” it said.

    Only place on the internet I trust to advise me whether I should watch this trailer or not. What do you think? Does it balance hype and revelations well?

    It seems like Biden is gonna announce today at 3pm at an event at Penn. Not sure where else to post this but just want to share what I know. It's not unusual for him to be holding a "conversation with Joe Biden" event like this at Penn but this one is strictly closed to Penn students and staff unlike any past ones iirc. I guess if I see a bunch of TV cameras when I roll up it will be pretty evident.
