If he has little trafic, and wonder why there are so many from here, he might end up reading this

I went once to eat in his home when I was 23. That was a nice flat, with a lot of huge green plants. It was in the rue saint-denis, in center paris. A street well known then for its prostitutes, to the point of being the center of a lot of raunchy joke. Police was already trying to chase them, and now they succeeded. And the jokes have died.

He was with his ex wife (friend of my childhood friend). He left her a few year before the attack.

I didn't like him then. I was a young arrogant quant trader, he was an arrogant young writer, and socialist journalist. I guess he didnt like me either. My point is: life is strange sometime.. or cruel

I agree, the article doesn't feel genuine. But the point it make is relevant: thinking for 10k years, is a good excuse for rich people to not give a fuck about today.

The Long Now released a (pretty lame) podcast a few hours ago: http://podcast.longnow.org/salt/salt-020200115-venkataraman-podcast.mp3

Where they totally acknowledge that their 10k year view, is just a rich man problem (and they even address how they can "incite" the poors to think on the same timescale... yeah it's mostly a bad podcast)

About the clock??? Yeah the guy building it should have stay on his cancer research job, for the long term good of humanity. But I guess cancer research bring less immediate fame than a cool unique clock

if mk is selling data to google, i'm kind of ok with it. At least mk get some of the google money, unless of the data being free for them to take.

But I doubt google of Fb are buyers, so i'm not sure I get your insinuation

I guess the point is not privacy.. is just privacy from the prying eye of a shady multi billion monopoly making money out of your data.

mk (or Zoho) can sell all my data all he want. I'll be fine with it, he is not a problem. Google, fb , MicroSoft are

It reminded me how good "American Psycho" by B.E.Ellis was. Look like nothing changed in 20 years
