I mentioned this to my gf and my son this morning. Within seconds my son was downloading and installing Metamask and couldn't wait to buy a cryptokitty. My gf said we should hurry and buy them now because they will surely become very expensive. And me, I was like wtf have I done?
Of all the ether dapps that are in the works that could revolutionalize the world, the first that goes mainstream is cat breeding. Daaaammmmmnnnn...
Some years ago IMDB allowed you to search for the lowest rated movies (not sure if that feature is still available). In the bottom place was the Disney film "Jonas Brothers 3D experience". If you read the reviews and filter for "Loved it"...
...you find about 200 reviews with 10 stars, all placed in the space of 1 week in March 2009. They read exactly like they were written by college students who had never seen the film. It doesn't take too many smarts to realize that is certainly what Disney did: paid 200 college students to register on IMDB and write a 10 star review in an effort to get this movie from the last place. The movie still has a 2.1 rating.
Only 5 make it out...
Great talk, Mark.
Proud to say I knew this guy when he was breeding bugbears. Now he's going to help us live forever.
I've "wasted" happy hours with this.
Wrote a post about it when I was writing a blog for the Norwegian national math education center:
I'm re-inspired by those pics! Gonna fire up Processing now and play... maybe find a new way to visualize, maybe just find a new way to lose a few hours...
