In the previous episode, I argued that giving a blue check mark to every Twitter user who offered up a credit card number as evidence of their identity would suffice. That argument was immediately destroyed by real world events.
This time, the topic remains Twitter, but now Jim of the Attack Ads! podcast and I dive into an argument from Dave Troy for the idea that Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey are collaborating to transform Twitter from a for-profit company into a "public good at the protocol level" in order to secure humanity's future as a multi-planet species. The whitepaper by Dave Troy referenced in this conversation can be found here.
