I think that look made sense back in the techie 90s.

Not the 90s Thoreau and the rest of us lived in. The 90s where the bubble people and Wired writers lived.

The simulation is getting more and more hilarious.



Axl Rose is currently in a Twitter feud with a cabinet secretary who can't post the correct flag when disputing Rose's patriotism.

Is there a way to contact someone on Twitter without having an account? My assumption is no.

While I get why Moldbug and Land are on opposite ends, I'm not sure I understand Kantbot's shtick enough to know why he's the opposite of BAP.

If anyone is bored and wanted to give one or two lines about the distinctions among these views I would read it appreciatively. I know land and I know MG - or thought I did. I don’t know them well enough to understand why they aren’t the same in this matrix.
