Everything worth having requires sacrifice.
I highly recommend @davidasinclair's new Lifespan podcast along with Andrew Huberman (@hubermanlab) and Matt Walker (@sleepdiplomat) podcasts. I'm honored to know these 3 and to get to learn from them. They inspire me to be a better communicator, scientist, and human.
I hope we never see another world war, but if we do, it seems likely that it will largely be fought in cyberspace.
@elonmusk 1. Learn to drive.
2. Learn to think.
3. Learn to love.
Here's my conversation with @DrBrianKeating, an experimental physicist at the UCSD, author and podcaster (check out Into the Impossible). Brian always brings a smile to my face with his mix of brilliance, humor, and love for space, science & engineering. youtube.com/watch?v=nhGwJL…
A Canadian and a Russian invade Texas. It was great seeing @GeorgesStPierre on the mat today.
The sunset on Mars is blue. I'd like to see it in-person.
Here's my conversation with @yaronbrook and @yhazony. It's a debate on nationalism vs individualism. I really enjoyed this long-form unstructured debate format and hope to organize a few such debates on difficult topics soon. Suggestions welcome. youtube.com/watch?v=Q24cpn…
The term "misinformation" is in danger of becoming like the term "hate speech", over-used by people to carry out political & personal attacks, embodying the very thing they had hoped to fight. Please lead with humility & use these words cautiously, knowing the damage they can do.
I had a funny interaction with a lady outside of Walgreens.
We did the awkward dance that people do when trying to get out of each other's way. We failed & just broke out laughing. Then she hugged me.
She was wearing a mask. I was not.
I walked away smiling. We'll be okay ;-)
I had the pleasure of voicing @michaelmalice in The Anarchist Handbook. Check it out!
Michael is my friend. We disagree often & this makes us both better. Plus I love the humor of me reading "Why I won't vote" when I proudly voted in every pres election since becoming a citizen. twitter.com/michaelmalice/…
The human heart pumps 2,500 gallons of blood a day.
My brain is somehow managing the operation of a super-complex piece of machinery and my conscious mind is usually oblivious to it.
In moments like this, I can't help but think that consciousness is an incredible & rare gift.
@lexfridman @YouTube We have an update - we reinstated the video (h9HgrS3ZV-o) and resolved the strike on your channel. This was a mistake on our end. We're really sorry this happened 🙏
My @YouTube channel received a strike. I'm guessing it's an error of automation. I know that @TeamYouTube has a tough job. Still, this makes me sad, since I think we need to continue having difficult conversations in the open. Above all, we're all human & we're in this together.
15 years ago today, Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone. Now, there's 6.3+ billion smartphone users.
Tech adoption has been incredibly fast and is getting faster. This can either help humanity or destroy it. Both outcomes should be considered with every new thing we build.
@elonmusk The chopsticks tower is one of the wildest engineering designs ever. Can't wait to see it catch Starship.
A year ago I started doing a lot more reading, listening, programming, learning about Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Chainlink, Dogecoin & many others. It's been a wild & fun journey. Thanks to all the folks who welcomed me with open arms. I'm excited to keep learning this year.
@sundarpichai It's sad he never won the Nobel Prize. He inspired millions. Happy birthday & rest in peace.
Eventually, everyone will be canceled.
