    August 24th, 2018 by DSholla

    “I really value experimentation, we are so nascent in this industry, there are so many unknowns that I think bad experiments are valuable.

    Distributed Dialogues EP #2 - Checks And Balances

    August 7th, 2018 by DSholla

    "There's a natural inclination to believe humans or structures are the problem, that if we just wrote software that made things run automatically and such malfeasance impossible, then we would end up in some gorgeous world. I think there's a lot to that concept, but you don't need to turn the keys over to the algorithms to make that happen."
