I am Very Tall (theatlantic.com 🗝️)

The article is a bit humorous, in the "makes me smirk as I read" way. But, being a tall person, and it being an article in the Atlantic, felt like something I had to share.

I like to think that 6 foot 6 is the limit to what you might call reasonable height. Any taller, and you move into slightly different territory. But people draw these lines in their own ways. Being tall is a bit like having a puppy, in that it forces you into a lot of fairly standard interactions with strangers. Specifically, you have to come up with different ways of responding to the following basic conversational approach shot: You’re tall. Often followed by: I bet you’ve never heard that before.

Ethereum finally moving away from mining (bloomberg.com 🗝️)

It's been in talks for years now, glad we're finally reaching this point. Of any crypto, Ethereum is the one I believe is most likely to prove long term viability. I'm not convinced of it, but if I had to pick one to win it all - that's the one.
