Qbix Platform presentation - exact script for voiceover. One paragraph per slide.
View qbix.text
The social platforms we use today are all centralized. Whether it's Facebook, Twitter, Uber, or any of a dozen others, both people and organizations have come to rely on giant monolithic platforms to connect them, mediate their interactions, and trust them with their data, identity and brand.
It starts simply enough. A few smart entrepreneurs build a useful platform. They their first users, and pretty soon it becomes clear this platform is the next big thing. Investors start putting in money, as more and more people around the world join the centralized platform. Now, third party developers are invited to build apps on top of it, adding even more value to the community.
The problem is that it's all centralized. One company controls all the interactions. People build their social identity on its domain. Companies host their brand identity there too. Developers get API keys to build atop the platform. At any time, the platform could delete an account, shut down a community, or revoke API keys of a developer.

EGreg / objectivism
Created Mar 28, 2015
Basic question about objectivism
View objectivism
you cannot possibly expect to have a discussion about whether Objectivism is consistent with “screwing people over” if you hold that man’s nature is subjective
The Objectivist ethics holds that the actor must always be the beneficiary of his action and that man must act for his own rational self-interest. But his right to do so is derived from his nature as man and from the function of moral values in human life—and, therefore, is applicable only in the context of a rational, objectively demonstrated and validated code of moral principles which define and determine his actual self-interest. It is not a licens
altruists’ image of a “selfish” brute nor to any man motivated by irrational emotions, feelings, urges, wishes or whims.
well that's not directly applicable, but there's an indication
While you may have read a lot of stuff, you clearly disagree with most of it, in various ways that are more fundamental than ethics
