Incidentally, I love how quoted Twitter tweets get embedded inline in the Peepeth interface. Between this and the "peep and tweet at the same time" feature, great way to erode network effect moats all around! #TearDownThatWall

Trying to use the "peep and tweet at the same time" feature of Peepeth, round 2.

1/ In "Good to Great", author Jim Collins uses the metaphor of the flywheel: disciplined people and a consistent vision eventually lead to extraordinary growth. Contrasts it with charismatic 'rockstar' CEOs who jerk the company around, causing it to lose momentum.

It's amazing the epicyclic knots the political elite tie themselves up in in order to grant themselves special rights and squash the general rights of everybody else. Ditto for journalists and free speech. Free speech for them, censored social networks for everybody else.

Oppression comes from concentrated power. The solution isn't to change the people in power, the solution is to decentralize the power.

Hard money will benefit poor people more than any social justice program or well-intentioned charity ever will.

Here’s the problem of #Brexit, Brits who voted for it thought they were voting to leave Westminster and Parliament, not the nice countries where they go for sun and vacations. Oopps!

One thing you learn when tweeting about Britain, no one outside of London thinks of themselves as British. They all think they live in neighboring countries with their own language and football teams. 😂😂😂

As predicted before referendum. Brits can’t leave EU just like Brits can’t magically turn into Americans no matter how much they yearn for it. There’ll be no deal and Parliament will simply ignore the referendum as it it never happened. #TypicalBritHumour

A lot of people have theorized that micropayments have too much cognitive load to be useful. But prior to Lightning there were almost no systems capable of actually testing this in the real world.

Possible that Lightning will prove that theory wrong!
