Mi pardonpetas pro mia nescio. Mi estas nur anglalingva uzanto de Google, sed interesas paroli kun aliaj homoj de aliaj lokoj, kiuj parolas malsamajn lingvojn.

Esperanto estas nova por mi, sed la koncepto pri havi lingvan lingvon estas interesa.

How to Get Rich (without getting lucky) by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

Here's the tweets in text form:

How to Get Rich (without getting lucky):

Seek wealth, not money or status. Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. Money is how we transfer time and wealth. Status is your place in the social hierarchy.

Understand that ethical wealth creation is possible. If you secretly despise wealth, it will elude you.

Ignore people playing status games. They gain status by attacking people playing wealth creation games.

You’re not going to get rich renting out your time. You must own equity - a piece of a business - to gain your financial freedom.

You will get rich by giving society what it wants but does not yet know how to get. At scale.

Pick an industry where you can play long term games with long term people.

The Internet has massively broadened the possible space of careers. Most people haven't figured this out yet.

Play iterated games. All the returns in life, whether in wealth, relationships, or knowledge, come from compound interest.

Pick business partners with high intelligence, energy, and, above all, integrity.

Don't partner with cynics and pessimists. Their beliefs are self-fulfilling.

Learn to sell. Learn to build. If you can do both, you will be unstoppable.

Arm yourself with specific knowledge, accountability, and leverage.

Specific knowledge is knowledge that you cannot be trained for. If society can train you, it can train someone else, and replace you.

Specific knowledge is found by pursuing your genuine curiosity and passion rather than whatever is hot right now.

Building specific knowledge will feel like play to you but will look like work to others.

When specific knowledge is taught, it’s through apprenticeships, not schools.

Specific knowledge is often highly technical or creative. It cannot be outsourced or automated.

Embrace accountability, and take business risks under your own name. Society will reward you with responsibility, equity, and leverage.

The most accountable people have singular, public, and risky brands: Oprah, Trump, Kanye, Elon.

“Give me a lever long enough, and a place to stand, and I will move the earth.” - Archimedes

Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, and products with no marginal cost of replication (code and media).

Capital means money. To raise money, apply your specific knowledge, with accountability, and show resulting good judgment.

Labor means people working for you. It's the oldest and most fought-over form of leverage. Labor leverage will impress your parents, but don’t waste your life chasing it.

Capital and labor are permissioned leverage. Everyone is chasing capital, but someone has to give it to you. Everyone is trying to lead, but someone has to follow you.

Code and media are permissionless leverage. They're the leverage behind the newly rich. You can create software and media that works for you while you sleep.

An army of robots is freely available - it's just packed in data centers for heat and space efficiency. Use it.

If you can't code, write books and blogs, record videos and podcasts.

Leverage is a force multiplier for your judgement.

Judgement requires experience, but can be built faster by learning foundational skills.

There is no skill called “business.” Avoid business magazines and business classes.

Study microeconomics, game theory, psychology, persuasion, ethics, mathematics, and computers.

Reading is faster than listening. Doing is faster than watching.

You should be too busy to “do coffee," while still keeping an uncluttered calendar.

Set and enforce an aspirational personal hourly rate. If fixing a problem will save less than your hourly rate, ignore it. If outsourcing a task will cost less than your hourly rate, outsource it.

Work as hard as you can. Even though who you work with and what you work on are more important than how hard you work.

Become the best in the world at what you do. Keep redefining what you do until this is true.

There are no get rich quick schemes. That's just someone else getting rich off you.

Apply specific knowledge, with leverage, and eventually you will get what you deserve.

When you're finally wealthy, you'll realize that it wasn't what you were seeking in the first place. But that's for another day.

The Pyramid of Debate by magnora7 in pics

Glad you like it. My comment was not meant as criticism, simply an idea to promote better debate and communication. I like that Saidit has a focus toward people being positive to each other rather than negative.

I think structured/logical debate, such as using the debate pyramid, could really set Saidit apart. I see a lot of posting, but don't see a lot of structured debate yet. I think many people really just don't know how to debate or communicate as online discussions often get dragged down to the bottom. I'll float an idea of how people may be able to learn, again just an idea: Use the debate pyramid categories as a voting system.

Evidence of Ancient Nuclear Explosions on Mars, Says Scientist by fred_red_beans in space

“However, on Mars, whatever process disturbed the … isotopes made the lighter isotopes relatively more abundant than heavier ones. This requires a predominantly nuclear process rather than mass fractionation,” he wrote.

If the explosions were natural, we would see large craters in the surface of Mars, said Brandenburg. He suggests instead that the explosions occurred due to large airborne fusion-fission devices of similar design to those seen on Earth.

So nova near our star system where mars is exposed, while earth is behind the sun, or due to Mars' lack of atmosphere may be just as plausible or fit this hypothesis. I'm no nuclear scientist myself so....

DIY $170 Cell Phone by d3rr in privacy

Awesome. I've thinking of ways to ditch my "smart" phone. DIY and build yourself is great too, everyone should have full control of their hardware (and software).

RISC-V and Linux Foundations will partner to promote open source CPU by useless_aether in Linux

[–]fred_red_beans 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Absolutely. An open source hardware with some sort of documented or audit-able security so that the end user has control of their own hardware would be a boon.

The Intel Management Engine is one backdoor "where only the manufacturer" has the cryptographic keys to access.

AMD processors also have Critical Security Vulnerabilities
