    1. Crypto art is art made for the future. As our walls become screens and our field of vision becomes enhanced with augmented reality, we will seek precious and meaningful objects to surround us (just as we always have). Whether in the much anticipated "metaverse," the many digital worlds and games we frequent, or in our own living rooms and peripheral vision, this new generation of art is made for our future.

      this to me is one of the actual realest points - that NFTs are the future of art for the metaverse & digital everything we find ourselves in

    2. This NFT world is likely the greatest unlock of artist opportunity in 100+ years. This isn't a suboptimal or fringe version of the real-world art economy, it is a vastly improved one.

      its fascinating how this may be simulatenously true with the fact that NFTs in their current actual implementation are a scam.. eg regarding copyright, minting on other chains, NFT frozen to a specific URL, NFTs can be trasnferred off chain / OTC such that the 10% royalty doesnt happen, etc etc)

      what ive come to see is that the reality is it doesnt matter - people making decisions on their career or specific investments, this matters a lot

      .. but before people thinking of diving into this cuz it may be the next big thing for the next 20 years, then ya that's probably correct

      this is massive cuz a lot of the problems will be solved one by one methodically even if its crappy today, itll be improved steadily cuz we are good at developing, what were bad at is blank sheet

      cant believe im agreeing with this belsky guy

    1. ow we might accelerate the path to the Metaverse by a focus on desktop access by remote workers: Could it be that the Metaverse starts with people working together in virtual offices, and then staying around and connecting for various reasons outside of work? 

      this is actually a fascinating theory and i betcha this is actually how the metaverse starts to take hold... people looking for better alternatives than zoom for virtual events, conferences, work meetings, and birthday parties online

      this will merge with video games to create the metaverse

      its hilarious to think of it this way

    1. We were not surprised to discover that contact comfort was an important basic affectional or love variable, but we did not expect it to overshadow so completely the variable of nursing; indeed; indeed, the disparity is so great as to suggest that the primary function of nursing as an affectional variable is that of insuring frequent and intimate body contact of the infant with the mother. Certainly, man cannot live by milk alone. Love is an emotion that does not need to be bottle- or spoon-fed, and we may be sure that there is nothing to be gained by giving lip service to love.

      The admission that Love and the need for more than just nourishment is important helped to develop the need for further experimentation and study on this idea.

    1. estigated L2s and Lis such as English and French. To fully understand the issues concerning the source of the knowledge available to the child L2 learner, further research involving other Lis and L2s is necessary. In addition, we also need to investigate successive L2 acquisition contexts where the L2 and the LI involve different modalities, including, for example, spoken languages versus sign lan- guages.3

      I personally haven't seen the explicit reasoning for using French in several of the French Tl studies I've read, but it is used a lot. In addition, many language studies would benefit from expansion that includes sign-language study.
