Lolli, North Carolina, Guns and Diversity


Reviewing the current price of bitcoin using the Coinbase app: on July 25th it was at $9,956 at ~12:40pm with #SatoshiMath

$1.00 = 10,044 satoshis.

at $10k/bitcoin, you get 10,000 satoshis.

Because at $1.00 / 0.00010000 = 10,000

Both Arry and Dae are feeling good.

Farewell Dom happy hour went great. has just signed on Safeway.

Safeway is pushing the grocery delivery.

Safeway has Coinstar/Coinme partnership and has been exposed to Bitcoin.

Shoutout to Coinme team! 

2,500 Bitcoin enabled Coinstar ATMs and growing.  

Bitcoin and blockchain are very much in the current affairs and public discourse.  

Dae’s home state of North Carolina on the radar!

North Carolina is representing a lot lately.

Just saw a crazy video from @matthewryancase of a guy on the subway.

Arry is just dumbfounded.

Diversity.  Last recording Arry was talking about local politics (giant spreadsheet is on  Some responses are mad at Arry because their point of view is not captured by Arry’s point of view.  Diversity.  Take ten steps back.... we are all humans. Diversity of thought means we should hang out more often with people that do NOT think like yourself.  Challenge people to seek out opinions that are NOT like your own.  If you are saying “I have never met anyone that is voting like you and so you’re crazy" does not work.  Assume there may be others that think like them.  Pretend Arry is not crazy and do a thought experiment.  What if her (or another person’s) point of view is valid?  

Find empathy.  

Arry talks about guns.  She is afraid of them. She doesn’t say that anyone with a gun is evil.  She originally wanted to know how to turn a gun off, find an on or off switch.  

Arry learned about the Libertarian group proactively, through Tatiana.  She spent a little time exploring their points of view.  Seek out understanding where the other person is coming from.  This is how we get to a better society.

Look at “The Law”.

"The Law" was originally published as a pamphlet in 1850 by Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850).

Mormans.  Dae and Arry talk about their individual experiences with Mormans.


Civil discourse should be about learning and experiencing, together.  Have more empathy for each other.  Let’s unite on a foundational point of view.  Think more as “we”.  

Go to your centers of community and see others face-to-face.  

And just because i disagree with you, it doesn’t mean I hate you.

Put the topic of discussion into a soccer ball, figuratively speaking, and kick it back and forth as you discuss together.  

Do thought experiments.

Do not try to put the soccer ball inside the other person.

It doesn’t feel good.

Future guests will be coming!
