Bidenomics Is Trying to Persuade You That Things Are Going Well
"And his talking had this guy Kirby, who is a fraud complete and a phony. They're trying to persuade you that are things actually getting better, that things are working out just well. They're not working out just well. And so what do you take from They this? are completely detached from what goes on in your life in anybody else's life. And they're going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars, maybe up to a billion dollars, to persuade you that Donald Trump is Hitler, that Donald Trump's going to destroy democracy, that Donald Trump's going to create World War III. And conversely, open the border's because of Donald Trump. And but for Donald Trump, we'd be in World War III. And but for Donald Trump, food prices would be down and they are going to work it, work it, work it. Now, if they can call him Hitler, I guess I can call them Goebbels, right? Yeah, I think so.

"Are the victims and as you pointed out if you're a victim then you're morally righteous and even more conveniently if you stand for the victim then you're morally righteous regardless of what you do with your own life and that's pretty much what university students are taught from the time they enter the university classroom and that's how they you know orient themselves morally well and that's at the hands of the radical to left bill and one of the things the Democrats also have to pay the price for I would say is their absolute to draw a line between the moderate Democrats and the extremists they're completely incapable of doing that I've talked to 40 senators and congressmen in the last five years I asked them all the same question including RFK he wouldn't answer either when does the left go too far well we certainly bloody well saw last it month didn't we because it got the oppressor oppression narrative a little mocked up we might say and we're going to consequences that are going to unfold pretty brutally over the next few months now listen he's a hundred percent right that is exactly the mindset of a leftist that is exactly the mindset of a progressive right there is also a good time to remind you by the way of you know the Democrat Party hates America I assume by now you've gotten your copy if you have not gotten your copy what are you waiting for you can grab your limited first edition signed copy of the Democrat Party hates America before they're gone and they will be gone levinsigned .com levinsigned .com that's the website that's the address that's a mr. producer gave me anyway so if I it screwed up it it's on him it's on him not me levinsigned .com is where you go get your limited first edition signed copy of the Democrat Party hates America before it's gone well think about it I mean think about that in the context of the Democrat Party hates America America is the ultimate oppressor America is the ultimate oppressor if you you go to college and you listen to a professor who's not professor

Media Matters Tries to Destroy Elon Musk's X
"Linda Yaccarino said, if you know me, you know I'm committed to truth and fairness. Here's the truth. Not a single authentic user on X saw IBM, Comcast or Oracle ads next to content in the Media Matters article. Only two users saw an Apple ad next to the content, at least one of which was Media Matters. Data wins over manipulation or allegations don't mean manipulated stand with X. Yeah, this is a multidimensional hit job. And they're trying to go after Elon personally and criminally. They're trying to go after his liberation of the platform, all because Elon has now become a serious threat to the regime, to the unit party and the left by allowing us to speak, by allowing us to challenge preexisting orthodoxies, allowing us to incubate elite opinion in a way that the bad guys don't like. And so, you know, Michael, talk a little bit more about Media Matters. I don't know if they've targeted you. You know, they come after us quite a lot. Who funds these guys? It's it's it's a great question. You know, we see Rumble, we see X, you know, they're they're suing intensely. What else do we know about it? Well, we know that their executives make a whole lot of money in order to stifle your freedom of speech. In fact, the CEO, a woman named Angelo Caruso, Caruso makes four hundred fifty three thousand dollars a year. The person who's been in the news all week is actually David Brock. And he's arguably the most ideologically weaponized. He's the chairman of Media Matters, making two hundred ninety two thousand dollars a year in order to stifle your speech. But what's interesting is that you highlighted earlier Media Matters doesn't just not like Elon. They don't like you having the right to speak freely. Their donors and funders rely on them keeping the truth hidden and behind the curtain. The reality is X has been a platform that has provided for millions of Americans to learn the truth of what's happening in society in a way that never would have happened had X been under its formal leadership under Twitter. So we never would have learned about all that happened with the laptop and Hunter Biden. We never would have learned about the malfeasance in Ukraine. We never would have learned even recently about the January six tapes because so much of the effort for releasing the tapes, which I'm glad Speaker Johnson did, happened on X. So Media Matters can't lose their grip on power. Their grip on power relies on you not knowing the truth. And so we're seeing, as you described, this very coordinated hit job from people who are paid very, very highly in order to stifle your freedom of speech. One other thing that I will note is that some of the executives that Media Matters has tried to pull to drop their ads are people like NBC. NBC is a really interesting case because just last week NBC had a journalist of theirs that was defending somebody, an editor in chief of a progressive news site that ended up being outed as a pedophile, is now being charged with child pornography counts in one of the most egregious cases that law enforcement has ever seen in that area. So we're seeing that this virtue signaling is really just meant to target you. They don't want you to speak freely. And even these advertisers are backing people that are corrupt and dysfunctional. And yet Media Matters is silent on it. So Media Matters hasn't called out NBC about that, but they'll gladly call out NBC on a fake story that is not rooted in real data. And I'm glad that X ultimately is calling it

Nova Hardscapes' Nasir Acikgoz on Thriving in Uncertain Times
"Think right now the way the economy is the way things have let's say slowed down the way interest rates have risen Politics, okay world governments and all this stuff that's going on They they you know, I feel it in the air that people just want to like curl up, you know And and they don't want to continue to push in a certain way It's kind of like let me hold all my money whatever I have left and I'm not gonna let it go, you know But you have to invest to create if you don't invest you can't create don't be scared to do that when it comes to what he's selling but My question for you is all of this stuff that's going on and you are full throttle you have I see you in the venture 36 -foot venture with quad 500 Merc's And you're flooring the throttles Why do you feel that way? When it comes to that, are you scared about anything that's coming up or you just go based off of off of what? Opportunity vision what I I don't stop I go full throttle all the time and What drives me that when I wake up I think I said I mean God has a plan and I believe in God and I I in he says it work be honest work and it's gonna happen and In this country opportunities are limitless. I mean, there's no limit. There's no There's no product you're gonna say all about people are yes, they're they're holding off They're not gonna they're you know, they're not gonna spend I will never think that way I still keep bringing and I'm gonna bring it We're gonna invest as a matter of fact The green industry has an advantage one of the biggest advantages that I've noticed is if the people are stressed They're stressed with things politics and all that how do they relax of course they go they do sports and stuff One of the things they'd relax is they work in the garden. They work in the backyard They work, you know, they do things or just looking at plants to look at plants. What did what does it do to you relaxes you? One of the things that I'm realizing because we do a lot of pool pools and you know Like we sell a lot of natural stone for pool pool decks and pool coping like for pool products That business is still booming because During the pandemic, obviously people were spending time outside and whatnot But also after the pandemic still that kept going it never stopped And the green industry picked up right right during the the pandemic. Yeah, it keeps going crazy boom Yes, it's still going. Yes. It's a little bit see slow down a little bit, but it's not gonna stop Nobody's gonna stop buying things. Well, we saw wasn't normal first of all. Yeah, it was out You know, it wasn't normal normal growth, you know normal growth year over year at least for me was 20 20 percent growth Correct, maybe 25. So I was able to do 20 to 25 percent more than I did the previous year Let's say that's normal. That's normal average, you know, but you have guys that went up a hundred two hundred three hundred percent in two years You know, so it's just a lot like even the the smaller landscapers they were used to doing, you know Three four hundred thousand dollars to say a small landscaper and a lot of them crossed a million in in two years I know, you know the Amelia 1 .5 to 2 .5 and how did that happen because of this crazy boom? So now what they're seeing is the slowdown effect a lot of people weren't prepared for this to slow down They weren't they didn't let's say understand what was going on or see what was going on And they didn't think it was gonna, you know finish so I hope everyone put you know something away for For this if not, you're gonna learn the next one. You need to yeah, you need to save obviously I'm not saying you need to spend everything but you know It's a cycle then the economy is a cycle four years five years up and then four year five years down four years So if you don't invest when it's down Obviously within your you know budget and and and means and means You're not gonna gain when it picks up again So what I'm doing is when it's up you keep investing anyway when it's down you keep going Obviously, I'm not in I'm investing. I'm actually reinvesting per se Not so aggressively as I did it during the pandemic because the demand was huge. Yeah, you saw it's still going I'm still going like I'm like, okay, so I was adding maybe five products back then but now I'm adding one two But I keep adding because I'm trying to prepare myself for the next rush. Yep, you know Hopefully we'll see those numbers again, but you know, it's gonna be tough. You'll see those numbers as more people use

How Endrow Metelus Is Bridging the Gap Between STEM, Gaming, and Fashion
"So I know that one of your vision and aspiration is to sponsor STEM programs. So why the interest in STEM? The reason the interest in STEM, I work. So let me tell you what I do. Outside of this, I have a normal nine to five. Right. OK, so I work in the STEM field. So my job currently as a business development manager for Intel with an S .H .I. My job function is mainly talking to customers, mostly schools, universities, mostly I cover public sector. So I have conversation about their curriculum, the hardware piece. That's where Intel comes in. The funding, the grant and space design. So what we've seen is that STEM is also attached to e -sports. Right. So e -sports is the largest right after the NFL. Yeah. Can you tell us what is e -sports? e -sports is entertainment sports. It's gaming, competitive gaming. OK. So you have thousands of schools in the United States giving out scholarship for e -sports. Wow. We at S .H .I., we had what we call Battle Academy, which was a scholastic e -sports tournament platform. We were giving out hundreds of thousand dollars for curriculum, hardware and space design to schools and everything. So I go to a lot of conferences. We have a lot of OEM partners like LG, Intel, Microsoft, all the big manufacturers. They all have interest in e -sports because e -sports is attached to STEM. And the reason STEM is very important is there's a lot of open positions right now. Millions, hundreds of thousands of open positions right now that we cannot fill in America. Seriously. So we have to get outside workers to come in to fill these roles. Yeah. Yeah. So the thing is, we have a lot of young black male and women, Hispanic, Asian, white, whatever, who can fill in these roles. So why don't we, why don't we like. Wait a minute. You said who can fill in this role? But we all know about the low representation of our population in the STEM field. Many of them are not really interested in STEM education. So how can they fill those without experience and knowledge? How can they fill those? That's why we come in. That's why we want to. That's what Fervolo Boy is about, right? Because we know these young people, they love clothing. They got style, they love wearing. So they're already spending their money in clothing. They all like wearing, they're already there. This is innovative. So while we attach it, bring the awareness because the clothing is the awareness as well. And also showing the beauty is all connected. So they're spending the clothing. The clothing business is a trillion dollar business is only increasing even more. Absolutely. Right. So my thing is, we know where they are. Yeah. We know what interests these kids. And people always want to wear nicest clothes, right? You go on TikTok, you go on Instagram. People always want to dress in a different way, different clothes and everything, right? So why don't we create a clothing that is cool to wear, that is nice. The aesthetics is beautiful. Also gives back, right? Also showing their beauty, but at the same time, give them interest into STEM. Because some people don't know what STEM is. That's true. Then now they're going to have the understanding of STEM. But at the same time, we have a bunch of young kids in the inner cities, they're all gamers. Gaming and STEM go hand in hand. Absolutely. So we increase the interest, have the understanding, hey, I can go ahead and be cybersecurity. I can go ahead and not only do all these other things.

The Difference Between a Financial Cost and an Economic Cost
"Dispensation here it matters for this segment I'm fascinated by economics because it marries the two things I love business and psychology and I did both an MBA and a graduate degree in psychology and economics is kind of a symbiote of those two those two things why do people try to rationally maximize their own life and make the economic decisions they do it's fascinating me then people call it the dismal science it's not dismal at all I find it to be the most fascinating one and what I really find fascinating about economics is how easy it is and how overcomplicated even some Republicans tend to make it overcomplicated there is a there's a thing in economics and it's very simple to understand if you understand this you'll understand ninety percent of economics it's called an opportunity cost there is a difference between a financial cost and an economic cost they're not the same thing I'll give you a quick example it's going to apply to what just happened up in New York how liberals how when it gets bad enough is when economics kicks them in the junk and it hasn't yet but it's starting up in New York there's a difference between a financial cost and an economic cost if my wife Paula a who is very talented database web developer she can make a lot of money hundreds of dollars an hour designing websites she doesn't anymore she manages my business but she used to if my wife were to forfeit that career and go out and say become a barista nothing wrong with that value and work I'm not knocking anyone but the pace far less correct say the pace $20 an hour financially my wife is better off right if she works two hours she made $40 she's not economically better off though those are not the same thing a financial your financial situation in the economic one are not the same thing economically she's worse off because if she can charge 200 an hour and to she make chooses coffee for $20 an hour she's actually losing economically $180 an hour that's called an opportunity cost the cost of a foregone opportunity liberals do not understand this at all or they pretend not to the communists just don't care about but the useful idiots genuinely don't understand that Eric Adams is just a useful idiot he's just dumb if you are going to tax New York City residents to death you need to understand they are some of the highest tax residents of any municipality in the country if you live in New York City people at the upper end of the income scale in New York City are paying upwards fifty of percent of their income forty to fifty to the government for almost nothing in return for streets dirty drugs that being just garbage everywhere you're paying for nothing they're paying up to fifty percent of their income and the Liberals are living under this illusion that you can continue to take money to people and just dole it out to union benefits police department's fire department sanitation department's social welfare programs SNAP programs illegal immigrants public shelters beautification projects community empowerment you understand they don't understand the concept of an opportunity cost that when you give money to illegal migrants in New York City it has to come from a another opportunity

What is up, you Cafe Bitcoiners? What up? Hey, Alex, can you hear me? Yeah, man. Damn, the service is amazing. It's fantastic. I was going to have you co -host today, but if you have terrible interwebs, then we'll have to do it again a different time. Yeah, I'm sitting solid right now, but it's my last day in El Salvador, so it's touch and go, but it feels good right now. It feels real good. I people hear laughing and enjoying themselves in the background. Man. Yeah, that's Blake just got out of the surf, and now the homie Paul's taking my fish out, got a session in. I mean, this place is next level, but don't come here, the surf sucks. How you been, man? How's everyone doing? I know I've been off for a little bit, but keeping track of everything and saw that the SEC got dealt another, what looks like a little legal blow. Their legal department is, are they even batting 500 at this point? I don't know. I didn't hear anything. What are you talking about there? I thought I read some about Binance getting granted a confidentiality ruling that basically blocked a bunch of information from the grasp of the SEC for clients. I don't know. I just headlined Reddit, so don't quote me. Didn't dig a lot into it, but saw that that had occurred. Yeah, I didn't hear that. It would suck to be Gary Gunzler right now. Yeah, dude. They're sporting like city attorney type numbers, just getting mopped up, but I don't know. What do you mean? I'm sure he's gotten a job offer for BlackRock. He's sitting pretty. Oh, that's a good point, actually. Anybody want to take odds on Peter's thought there? I think Peter's probably right. I would say the likelihood of that is probably fairly high. That's a hell of a trifecta there. You should take that with Joe Carlos, sorry, Peter, like a ETF still within 2023 on top of a BlackRock job acceptance from Gensler thing. It's got to be like a hundred to one. Yeah, the theta on that is pretty high right now, so no. Yeah, that's like Buster Douglas numbers. It's wild. You know, we were joking in here the other day. Joe came in and we were talking a little bit about the ETFs and Joe was like, I don't understand why we're not seeing an ETF where you can see the actual addresses for the ETF you can verify on chain and then you have redemption directly to shareholders from the trust. And I was joking. I was like, man, somebody is going to do it. We should do it. Me and you, Joe. Let's do this thing. So people were tweeting at me like, is Swan going to do an ETF now? And it's like, dude, I was totally freaking joking about that. That's classic. Where's American HODL this morning? He was caffeinated up on fire yesterday. Dude, he was cracking me up and that guy is funny as hell. I was trying to hack a coconut up in El Salvador and I almost chopped my pinky off. Mickey Koss, good morning, Shelly. Good morning, Terrence. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. So we're going to have a pretty chill day today. We're going to be doing some beginners Q &A. We have a couple of news items to discuss. There's a lot of Bitcoin mining rigs getting plugged in apparently. Also, we're going to revisit. It's fun to, you know, the Internet's an amazing thing. You can come back and revisit stupid shit people said about Bitcoin. You know, Bitcoin is dying. This is dying. That's dying. Bitcoin is going to boil the oceans, all that. There's some interesting comments from Dave Ramsey that we're going to bring back up. Apparently, the central bank over in England wants all systemically important stablecoin firms to back their issuance with non -interest bearing central bank deposits. I mean, that's like a full on lizard move, in my opinion. We'll discuss that a little more too. But yeah. All right. Let's do the intro to the show. You're listening to Cafe Bitcoin. Welcome to Cafe Bitcoin. This is episode 476. Shout -outs to supporters on Fountain Nosterness. Our mission for the show is to provide signal in a sea of noise, teaching the other seven billion people on this planet why there is hope because of this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin. Today is November the 14th, Tuesday, 2023. Man, we're on our way to the next halving. It's coming up. Where's Ant when I need him? Here he comes. Yeah, man. I think, Ant, I'm going to just like lead off right with you if you're ready. I don't know if you can hear me right now, but we should start with some stats. Let's get some orientation. We haven't done stats in a long time. So let's begin with the stats and get an idea of where we are. Ant, are you there? Are you ready? Yeah, I got some stats. I got time chain stats up right here. Let's go. Taco, talk to us about this impenetrable freedom force field. What's it at? Current USD price, $36 ,587. We are at block height, $816 ,745. Current hash rate, seven -day moving average is around 435 exahash per second. Let's see, mempool transaction is still full a little bit. We got $211 ,000 climbing. The fastest fee right now is around 79 sats per v -byte. Good news, we got 161 days about to the halving, and we are currently up 25 % on the 200 -day And right now, let's see, sats per fiat dollar, is that how you say it? It's 2 ,732 sats per dollar right now. The last block was found by Antpool, and the total subsidy and fees was just over 7 Bitcoin. And I think it was around 10 % of that block was fees, so very interesting. We're 88 % into the halving. $23 ,254, we just hit a block. Block's left. And that's pretty much it for now. I think that's it. Sats per dollar. You can buy 2 ,734 sats per dollar. I didn't hear you if you said that, so I'm just saying it. That's okay, it moved. Technically two different data points. And we have also, there is also 93 .05 % of the total supply of Bitcoin that will ever be mined in the history of mankind has already been mined and distributed. So you might want to get some just in case this thing catches on a little bit. Hey, Ant, if you're in a stable situation, let's get you up as a co -host, my man. Okay, I'm going to switch networks. Okay, you let us know when you're ready. D++, good morning. Thank you for joining us. I know it's super early for you over there on the West Coast. Good morning. I have a huge smile on my face because I'm actually driving over to Club Lab here in Austin, and I feel like I just got the weather report. I felt like I was experiencing the future in real time for a minute there, hearing all of the stats on what Bitcoin's up to. I want that every morning. It's so good. Isn't it cool? You know, to me, it's like an orientation thing. It's useful to know where you are to figure out where you're going. You have to know where you are to figure out where you're going or how you're going to get to where you're going. But it's also really useful because when I started hearing stats like this when I was a newbie Bitcoiner, I didn't know what they meant. I was like, you guys are saying all these words that I don't know the meaning to. And it caused me to look them up, which forced me to learn about it, which was awesome. Also, 435 ExaHash is crazy. Last I checked, it was 420. And it's just so crazy to me how the hash has completely decoupled from the price. I mean, going on for probably a couple of years now, ever since we left China, it's just wild. But the big news for me today is I am driving to PlubLab. As you guys know, it's the Bitcoin startup accelerator and community accelerator in Austin. You have to come through if you're ever in town. And what I'm so excited about is I am enrolled in Nifty Lisa Nye's Taproot class. So I'm taking her Taproot class. She's pretty much one of the only people on the planet that can teach it because what we're doing is we're taking the spec, which is to say the BIPs, and we're implementing them, which is to say we're creating our own library that makes Taproot happen. And she's one of the only people that can really do this because she's one of the only people who can translate from the BIPs into the code because there are certain things that are kind of missing or glossed over. Obviously, it's all in there, right? But it's pretty hard to take the BIP and to just translate it into creating your own Bitcoin library. So it's so fun. It's very challenging. Definitely, this class is for experts only. But if you ever wanted to learn how Taproot works, I highly recommend taking her base 58 class.
A highlight from Chinese Communist Bitcoin Miners? And Lobbying For Bitcoin Mining W/ Dennis Porter
"Welcome back to the mining pod on this week's show. We're joined by Dennis Porter of the Satoshi Action Group to discuss Bitcoin mining and Politics we're mainly focused on the national security concerns when it comes to Bitcoin mining So we discussed with Dennis about moving into state houses and lobbying on behalf of the Bitcoin mining industry as a note Dennis is throwing a dinner at the end of this week on Friday at the North American blockchain summit Be sure to use promo code mining pod to get 25 % off your ticket. We'll be seeing you down in Fort Worth Do you have dinner plans November 17th? Well you do now down in Fort Worth, Texas at the North American blockchain summit Satoshi Action Group is hosting a dinner along with a lot of our friends in the Bitcoin mining industry You can join us November 17th at 6 30 p .m By going to Satoshi dinner calm and using promo code mining pod to get 25 % off your ticket again That's Satoshi dinner calm use code mining pod to get 25 % off your ticket.

Dennis is joining me today. Dennis Porter. Welcome to the show. How are you today? I'm doing excellent. Just coming back from a break. So are ready to dive into a jam -packed week of back -to -back calls Yeah, nice and tan back from your travels, right? Yeah, this is as tan as I get too So it's like, you know, ten days ten days in the Sun and this is as good as it gets So just everyone's prepared for that Are you ready to jump back into the Bitcoin grind or did you like really stop when you were vacationing? I oh, I never really truly fully stopped working the tweets keep coming, huh? Yeah It's an unfortunate byproduct of working in a 24 -7 365 non -stop nascent ever faster moving Industry that is Bitcoin Bitcoin mining when it combines two crazy worlds the one that I work in which is Bitcoin Bitcoin mining side which is the 24 -7 365 thing and then it's the Political realm which is just a total mess all the time. So it's a great combo. Yeah, I remember talking I want to stay sane Yeah, exactly my point. I was about to make you took the words out my mouth I remember talking to you like a year ago about the political side of things I was like, I don't know why anyone would ever want to get in that world at all. You're like, oh, I love it I love the I love the pool. I love being in the midst of it and still today don't get it Probably won't ever but I'm glad there's people like you who care about it And we you know agree on most things when it's firstly when it comes to Bitcoin mining so glad that's there Okay was transition over to Satoshi Action Fund. So you're the president and CEO you founded it. It's been two years Or so, it's a little over a year. We launched in June of last year and I am yeah I'm the president CEO I say CEO and president of Satoshi Action I'm there are two organizations now actually one is Satoshi Action Fund and one is Satoshi Action Education one I'm the CEO of and one of the president of so for simplicity's sake we just say it's all under the Satoshi Action umbrella But yeah, it's been going really really well We've had a ton of success and I'm sure we'll jump into that But I launched that in June of last year and we've been off to the races ever since Yeah, let's go into a little bit and then we have much more talking to show specifically We brought you on to talk about all the recent headlines with like rural Bitcoin mining and like the pushback We had a New York Times article about that there's some stuff in Arkansas going on So we'll get to that probably towards the second half of the show But let's talk about Satoshi Action Fund some wins recently and then maybe like a little more Flushed out what you guys are trying to to work on is like the product if you could say that for I guess a lobbying organization Yeah, yeah I mean it's good and that's that's probably one good area to start though with when it talk what comes talking about Satoshi Action is The one big difference between us and let's say like a lobbying organization or even a trade association Is that we don't we don't actually like do most of the lobbying. In fact, we hire lobbyists and we don't have members We have donors like more or less the premise of Satoshi Action Is that if you believe in the mission that we have pursued which is to make the United States? One of the best places in the world to be a Bitcoin miner or to be a Bitcoin er Then you want to support us if you agree with you know having the opportunity to stay here in America That's thriving off of this new technology versus being forced to move abroad You know that again is why I created Satoshi Action I think it's why people buy buy into the vision and the mission of what we're doing but we're very very structured very very different from from any of these other organizations that you might see out there and Once we launched Satoshi Action, the first thing that we wanted to do was try to go out there and show Right off the bat. What could we do? How could we be successful? How could we show that we can be effective because one of the most dangerous things that you can do with a political organization is You know get out there do all this, you know, make all this noise and then you don't produce any results You can do that a couple times you can even do it for years But eventually people will grow tired and they will move on and they will want to hear from someone else They will want to see someone else produce results There's definitely two the unfortunate part about politics Is there sort of two things you have to do one is you do have to produce results and the other is you have to? market your results market even what you're trying to do so that you can get people to buy into that they should buy into what you're trying to accomplish and fund essentially fund your operation because 100 almost 100 percent aside from our like You know, two three little s19 miners that we have plugged in that were donated to us The vast majority of our money comes from either donations or people that we get to come to our events was essentially a form of a donation So we rely a lot on on our donors to support the work that we do on a constant basis But right away we wanted to make sure that we were proving to our donors that we were having success So we said, okay, what can we do? We we got to the drawing board right away We brought on Eric Peterson who is our current policy director. Who's a wizard on the policy world and We had my two co -founders Mandy and Syria and we sat down we were like, alright, what are we gonna do? We started crafting public policy model policy For the Bitcoin Bitcoin mining space and what that means is that we created sort of like this like, okay here is a Example of a bill you could pass in your state that helps you advance this industry You know what we would do is we'd go in we'd say okay We have this great bill that we wrote up and we think you should pass it It'll really help you and they'll say like, you know, why would you want me to do that? Like we go in we pitch we say okay Bitcoin mining is great for jobs Great for local investment grid stability environmental cleanup the ability to enhance green and renewable energy projects really any energy project But policymakers particularly like when you can help solve some of the problems with green energy And then we win then we give them that bill the most popular of those bills that we did We know we have four of them Two of them have sort of moved or I should say three of them have moved around like have been introduced Or been worked on at the state level So far only one has passed into law which is a very big accomplishment but not to say only one but yeah I'm pretty yeah, it's pretty big deal Yeah, just one. It's just one of dates. So yeah so in then, um that bill ended up being called our right to mine bill initially originally was called the Digital Protection Act and then it transformed into becoming the rights mind bill and essentially that bill just protects Bitcoin miners from various forms of discrimination We saw real -time discrimination taking place across the country and we created real -time protections for that form of discrimination And we ended up being able to pass that bill into law in two states, Arkansas and Montana in fact in Montana is one of the states where Two things happen one. We actually saw some of the discrimination taking place where I don't know if you heard of the Missoula County there Where they changed the zoning laws and they like went drove a twenty million dollar bank when mining operation completely bankrupt because of it so Completely wiped them out all because they were concerned about things that were not true about Bitcoin mining, you know environmental concerns Oftentimes we see at the local level not necessarily in Montana But a big one is a concern is around Chinese mining particularly CCP mining I should say not Chinese owned but just that they're concerned that the CCP controls them So we saw real -time discrimination taking place in Montana We solved that problem the other problem. The other thing we discovered while we're there that we learned is That we can add things to this bill And we'll get into sort of like where we got to from that point But it was an important moment in the history of Satoshi action We added in a ban on any additional taxes on Bitcoin when uses a form of payment Which is critical because in the state of Montana, you know If you let's say you sell me a car like they'll tax that like peer -to -peer transaction Let's tax it like right off the top. So if I just sell you some Bitcoin or pay you in Bitcoin They would do the same thing. They'd be like, oh are we you owe us a tax for that? So we banned that which was great. And um, yeah, we'll talk about a little later but that was our big initial success huge success a small tear came down my eye when I When I passed my first bill into law Eric was like, you know done 10 ,000 times So he didn't he didn't really care as much but it was it was a big moment But I was like, we've done it. We've done it, you know, like he was like, ah Alright now I'm time for the next one right? So yeah right to mine. How'd you guys come up with that? It's like a very it's very catchy right and it's hard to argue against that Yeah, I don't know. I just can't use Brilliant top ahead. Okay, I came up with it sent it to I sent it to someone and said hey You should call this right to mine. I didn't even we didn't publicize it a really large news account I said hey just call it right to mine. That makes more sense. Yeah, and they did and then it just took off. Yes It was interesting for sure it's very amenable in a good way Okay, so you guys have passed some bills you're creating like this donor network to be able to to move it forward You've told me about a few wins here. I want to hear about some of like the obstacles which you already kind of alluded to so and we'll get to that later in the show the discrimination which we're seeing pop up right now, whether it be Chinese Bitcoin miners who are being Unfairly maligned for being associated with the CCP or not. And then also just like other Bitcoin miners who are unwelcome in certain areas But to the obstacles, what are some things that you've sort of like learned about why you come through this process creating Satoshi Action Fund and moving forward into these different these different State houses to lobby on behalf of Bitcoin Yeah, I would say that an overarching theme to the work that we do is that Things can go wrong very quickly and can be can be unrecoverable. They can be recoverable, but they can also be unrecoverable You know politics is very much like the real world so when real -world actions occur, there will be Consequences or there will be you know, either good or bad, right? You'll have good things or bad things happen because of real -world actions I'll give an example of a positive real -world example that Leads to us to do where we are today having a lot of success and that is the current consistent worry and fear around central bank digital currencies, so for some reason Which I definitely am aware of I Can't share too much on the story but definitely aware of a lot of Americans became very very concerned around central bank digital currencies and so Eventually, what happened was you had governors across the country including Governor Noem and Governor DeSantis eventually Working to ban central bank digital currencies at the state level There was this big huge kerfuffle around it and everyone was like doing everything they could to like stake their claim Literally Governor Noem took out like a steel Stamp of like a veto stamp and was like like stamped it into the bill. Like it was very it was very cool Actually, I loved it. Um so all of a sudden this like firestorm picks up where central bank digital currencies become this thing that Generally, I would say conservatives are against or Republicans are against but like really really opposed to like hyper opposed to it more so than I have seen anything in the The crypto space broadly I would I would consider CC central bank digital currencies to sort of be adjacent to the to the crypto space and because of that fervent Fear and concern around central bank digital currencies we've actually been able to use it as an effective way to demonstrate the value of Bitcoin because What happened was initially when they said Oh central bank digital currencies are a problem people started to say oh Well Bitcoin is a digital currency Is that also going to have the same problems as a CBDC and of course, we know we started education right away No These things are like way way different and then we just started to realize that it was best to classify them as polar opposites because they literally are like one is You know authoritarian sort of at least you when used on the retail level go ahead Yeah, send a CBDC between a bank or an institution. I don't I don't care at all force it on individuals In the United States without proper regular regulations and regulatory frameworks and then all of a sudden you have something that could be used in a way that you know is Sort of unimaginable to some extent to manipulate human behavior. So We started saying okay, these things are opposite and now when we're going into these states and we're saying okay, you should pass this bill It's pro Bitcoin. Also, it's anti CBDC people are like, oh hell yeah, let's go like we want to pass that bill So that's what that's one positive example of like how real -world things have had a really positive impact on what we're doing There's a lot of headwinds around creating or doing anything that you can to oppose CBDCs and so and as we pitch Bitcoin Bitcoin mining and You know all of our digital asset policy where there's always that thought in mind of how can we tie this into? Concerns around CBDCs which are valid and are linked We are not making some sort of leap here Bitcoin and CBDCs couldn't possibly be more more polar opposite. Gotcha Tell tell me about the some other stories Involving I have one video in mind of you going to Montana and speaking in front of Yeah, and there was someone before you who was just like going off and like kind of rabid It was good. And then you came in after and like kind of calmly presented some is Counter information this typically how the process is? Because I just think you are basically working in like the Parks and Rec version of Bitcoin. You have to like go deal like these Officials and like they don't know anything about it and they're like China bad Bitcoin bad That's that's my understanding every time I see this which is a really unfair characterization of it, but it's also it's stuck in my mind So lay it on yeah. No, it's it's you got you got it. You nailed it, right? Is the funnest example of Just how wild that can be out there So we go and we are getting ready to testify and every time we testify You know Especially because it's around Bitcoin mining we do get some sort of pushback usually at the local level typically from environmental groups Which is unfortunate because there's so much. I mean everybody knows in the mining space There are so many benefits from the methane component to balancing renewables to balancing the grid there's so many benefits that the You know Bitcoin mining space can offer to those that have come from even staunchly environmental the staunchly environmental realm so Needless to say there was two Opponents strong opponents to the bill one was a gal from an environmental group. She didn't get too out of control but the second guy he was a young a young gentleman from from Montana not originally and he worked at UCLA and he Was very opposed to Bitcoin and he started to go on this like speech like this really long drawn -out like monologue and Eventually at one point he says that that Montana will will like Die on the cross of Bitcoin essentially, right? It'll burn on the cross of Bitcoin I can't remember the exact word he uses but it's like very extreme very dramatic and Then he goes on to say that people are dying because of Bitcoin mine houses. I wish the camera was on me There's these cameras in every single Hearing room generally speaking every state Capital building when you're testifying in front of these hearings like they have cameras just like DC but obviously a lot lower tech But I just remember when he said that people are dying because of it He was so people are dying because of Bitcoin. He was so serious about it I just remember looking down my notes and just my face looked looking up at him was like So confused and I just wish the camera would have caught it because it would have been a perfectly it would have been a meme Like forever, but yeah, fortunately, there's a lot of great policymakers out there and actually, you know sometimes you love to rag on these guys, but You know, they do a good job a lot of these guys. They do a good job one guy asks him he says You know, he tries to run out actually that's part of the stories and this is important part of the story So let me backtrack so he finishes his speech. He tries to leave right away, which you don't do never do very rude tries to leave And as he gets to the door one of the people was like hey before you go even you usually we do questions at the End let's have you do some questions right now. We want to be able to talk to you a little bit Bring him back up to the podium He's like now son You made some pretty egregious claims there around Bitcoin mining Do you have anything to back up the statement that Bitcoin mining is killing people and the guy just is like well I don't have it here with me, but I can I can get it to you and He just like this this guy just is like, I mean you gotta remember this you see you sell a guy's like 22 years old he's a kid. Yeah Great great on him though. Great. Love the love the getting active at a young age, but he's just like son if You're gonna come in here and make egregious claims. You better have something to back it up and The kid just was like so upset like cuz he just got he's gave this great speech And he wanted to just walk out like drop the mic and walk out So he just blew him up I was anyways, it was it was definitely the most entertaining moments in the entire history of my experience And it's only been a year and a half So I I'm really looking forward to other stories that I can tell in the future Please catalog all these because I just like very Specifically remember watching that entire video and laughing pretty hard because it was it was pretty funny Okay, let's keep diving into this a little bit more. What have you been seeing in a lobbying front? That's been sort of helpful that you would encourage other people to look at we've had the call lines We've had the emails. We've had people going speaking to people I Think for the Bitcoin community we can all take like a breather and be like a lot of what we've been doing has not been working What has been working to speak with these people in state houses who need to learn about Bitcoin because Bitcoin's coming their backyard What has been working from your year and a half of doing this actively and putting boots on the ground? The things that have helped the most are Well, first of all getting clear of FTX collapse. I mean that is this is what I just tweeted this out yesterday. It's like I Still can't believe that we passed two bills into law in the middle of that collapse and it was a very testy time in the space so getting clear of FTX is Only gonna help us the other is just the way we Approach the conversation around Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining the way we pitch it is that we really focus on the benefits We do not talk about the technical side We do not try to explain how Bitcoin or Bitcoin mining works We give a very brief overview if they want more information Of course, we will dive deeper with them and we are very good at doing that you always have to be ready for those questions, but It's very important to just keep it as simple as possible Most of these policymakers have not made up their minds at all about any of this stuff They hear it in the news over there. They're their nephews trading crypto You know, like they're it's like they've got stuff all over the place, you know, you got some hardline anti -crypto anti -bitcoin Democrats You know, you've got some vocal Republicans, but they're not really like hardline yet. Like there's just not a lot of like really built -in statements or viewpoints on this on this technology and So what we do is we just go in and we say okay like Out of everything you've heard a lot of some of it is true some of it is not but most importantly what we're here to do is try to explain to you the value of Bitcoin mining for your state so we pitch Bitcoin mining and we it's a five benefits I mentioned earlier it can bring jobs local investment great stability Environmental cleanup and the ability to enhance green and renewable energy projects and out of those five No one ever says anything bad about it But out of those five usually a policy maker will say oh What kind of jobs does it make or like, you know, oh I I didn't know it could clean up the environment it's like an instant like gateway to being able to have a conversation about something they care about because usually you're hitting on something there like if it's not the economy if It's not the environment if it's not energy like at the local state level like those topics are huge Because the vast majority of energy policy is set at the state level. The vast majority of job creation is done at the state level And then a lot of this these like sort of decisions around how much green energy they're going to be building done at the state Level a lot of environmental stuff done in the state level Yeah, DC throws around big pockets big buckets of money at everybody and they certainly have regulations But a lot of these decisions are made by local state policymakers And so they care if they care a lot about these issues probably themselves, but also their voters care a lot about those issues Particularly the jobs one comes up a lot because we we know in the mining space that we create a lot of rule And jobs and jobs and economically depressed zones where it's very difficult to create jobs nearly impossible to create like long -lasting jobs So the moment you say oh we create jobs in rural areas. They're like boom the brain turns on like well How do you do that? Because that's really important to me As an example in New Hampshire, we've I've been there a few times now In the there's an area called the North Country. There's like no jobs It's a whole thing like they call it jobs for the North Country is like one of their pitches So when we go there and we talk about Bitcoin mining, we're like jobs for the North Country jobs for the North Country It's because it's true and it's something they care a lot about so that yeah, that's that's generally how we pitch it We do not talk about Too much about Bitcoin in the past We haven't talked too much about Bitcoin to the extent that it's like oh you're gonna need this because it's good as hedge for inflation or XYZ like we sort of stay away from that and focus on things that Like mining that we know will deliver value now, we've expanded our policy. We've expanded the way that we that we talk about it But we haven't gone into this new legislative cycle yet So yeah, that was all done everything that we just talked about that we've done and that we have done It was done in early 2023. We prep for it in early 20 or in late 2022 Now we are prepping for 2024 in late 2023 So we got we sort of have an idea of where things are gonna go and what we're gonna do and we're in a really Great position. In fact, we could be active in up to 20 states we probably won't be active in that many but we have the opportunity to be active in up to 20 states and as a Form of context we only introduced law or excuse me introduced policy in seven states, so we were only able to actually convince seven states to Try to pass our bills Whereas like this cycle, I think that number will be closer to like 10 or 15 only seven states That sounds like a lot of airline miles to me so it can be yeah. Yeah, this seems seems like a lot of work Okay, so we got a lot of that laid out Let's go and talk about some of the more aggressive headlines We've seen recently and we're speaking about the New York Times article that dropped to believe a week ago for listeners Check out that in the show notes will include that I think we also talked about the news roundup last week Essentially, there's a Cheyenne Wyoming based Bitcoin miner They are owned and operated by a Chinese national group that has some ties according to the New York Times to the Chinese Communist Party essentially the story boiled down to Microsoft is near this plant it's Bitcoin mining plant the US government has a missile siloed nearby an Air Force base nearby and Microsoft is worried that this Bitcoin mining base could be used for foreign intelligence reasons Then we also have the story down in Arkansas, which we'll get down to in a second But let's start with this first one this this thing with Chinese nationalist groups Bitcoin mining obviously to to you and I is more of an energy game and it's very simple, right? It's just like plugging machine. Let it hash I'm gonna collect some Bitcoin and then there's those five benefits you talked about to outsiders though. They're not thinking about that They're thinking about all these people coming into rural areas and even foreign investment Has that been a struggle when you've been talking to lobbyists groups or talking to people in state houses have they brought this up to you? Yeah, definitely it's um, it's a major concern I would say Most Americans like average American especially rural Americans care a lot about the encroachment of the CCP on on the United States from from a physical perspective so like from a geographical perspective they don't like the idea of a CCP owned controlled or even highly influenced business You know being next to them and then definitely not being in and around me sort of military installations I believe the location in Cheyenne is near a Also, is that the one that's also near a nuclear plant or a nuclear missile site as well? So yeah, something like that Yeah, so I share the concern like that I think the premise is like Do you want foreign adversaries to be in and around any sort of? Military installation any sort of critical infrastructure You know generally I like my stance is like I'm very like pro people coming here starting their businesses You know trying to accomplish the American dream, but at the same time We also have to be concerned about whether or not those businesses have strong links to You know the CCP or you know A lot of people care a lot about also like Russian oligarchs and their ability to influence America American politics American infrastructure you know the big argument today is that the electrical infrastructure is a critical part of national security and That we need to be doing everything we can to protect it and I agree I think that's important all of those things are important that we should we should keep an eye on them The the thing that I don't like is when the New York Times tried to spin this article as if like Bitcoin mining was some sort of like really powerful tool in the hands of the CCP like next to these sites I don't think it really matters what business was there.
A highlight from Crenshaw to Crypto With DeShone Kizer of One of None and Jorge Peniche of The Marathon Clothing
"DK, do you want to just give us the quick kind of how you guys now are working together and what we're doing now? It sounds like both of you have Roc Nation connections also, so shout out to Jay -Z and what they've done there. What's the future of how these brands, both one of non -marathon, are getting together and what you're going to be doing? And also, to JP's point, how are you utilizing that toolkit that they really helped to pioneer in going into the future? Absolutely. I mean, Avery, coming from the brand side of things, isn't this a dream? It's like there's not one thing that we have to like create new. It really became like a wait, we need to pause, go backwards and do as much research as we can because everything that we want to do from a technology standpoint, that everything that Web3 stands on top of, there's about five different ways for us to sculpt this to be something that is like directly in line with everything that they had been working on for a decade. So what we end up landing on is there's a couple key features that we thought we could really do in a next generation way. One is this concept of connecting physical to digital, taking, like you said, the free digital download alongside a physical copy and then relating engagement and reward opportunities based on your ownership of the asset. That's something that we thought that we could do better than anyone else in the world. That's where I spent the last three years. I understand the culture. I understand bridging the most forefront of technology into the neighborhoods that I grew up in. I knew I'd be the best at that. So that made me excited as a partner for those guys of doing that, bridging physical to digital for that. The second one is a big part of this is that there's a gap from the cryptocurrency to where we're at today within the proud to pay world that we almost missed out on. And that was, you know, the most traditional NFT drop. Candidly, we came in saying, you know, starting to partner with those guys at the early conversations into 21 or into 22, early 23 and saying, like, guys, this isn't a time for that. We're out of that phase of a traditional PFP project. It's time for us to go in a different direction. But, you know, under Black Sam's leadership, I quickly realized that, no, there's something that we have to go do still. We still need to make sure that there's a piece of the marathon in that PFP world, being that, you know, what he was doing and NIP was doing 10 years ago is what these guys have been trying to do. So we want to make sure we do this the right way. So what we partnered on is through Roc Nation. You know, that was just our relationship. They represent the brand. And so they've been in every call with us, making sure things go as smooth as we can and with some of the resources they have the power. And what we built is a traditional PFP membership to get things started. That's the next generation of Proud to Pick. Over the last decade, there's been a couple of different ways to get involved. Well, from here on out, the only way to get involved is through owning the marathon line, a true PFP project, but a PFP project that is true to the brand. I mean, from hand drawn art on every asset that's on it, every piece that you see, from an outfit to a pair of sneakers to a hat or items that have been released through the marathon. Every background you see is a monumental moment throughout Nipsey's Marathon that we're trying to bring to the forefront. So we wanted to make sure that we tap that first. Let's go out there and do a true PFP project to get things rolling. And then from there, you know, now let's get into all of those elements that we've been able to backtrack on of hustling and acquiring wealth, making sure you're turning your products into assets, making sure you're thinking about the longevity of your collectibles. So doing that through provenance and timelines and the ability to exchange the physical items. And through the random rewards that you just didn't know was going to happen, these things happen very quickly through our product to pay. So we wanted to make sure that we wanted to have an environment where you just never know what you might get. You might get an update a week before that. You got, you know, 10 percent discount on this early access on that. There's a lot of that. And what we call the marathon vault. And lastly, is making sure that once you're in this community, that you are first to know on anything that's up to come. So other from traditional drops they do in the marathon clothing to other digital initiatives, just from my little bit of time working with the brand, these guys have much bigger plans to not only preserve the legacy, but elevate the legacy specifically in a digital world across a couple of different activations. And we want the marathon vault, you know, the product to pay members to go to be the first to know. And, you know, kind of the one stop shop to be able to stay in touch on what's going to happen in maybe the gaming world, maybe the, you know, the Web3 world, maybe the cryptocurrency world. That's where we come in. We're the infrastructure. We want to be the connection between the physical and the digital. We want to be the platform that you can come in and log in and prove your ownership that you have that NFT to show that you're proud to pay member. And then essentially reroute you to all the different initiatives that we've been working on with these guys. So once again, discounts, engagement services to the products and what will be that back in dashboard for those guys and continue to. Once again, we weren't there with them through a lot of those stories, but hopefully use be the technology that can preserve those and push those forward the same way they're trying to push forth legacy. Just by the way, this is like one of the product offerings. So if you do have a proud to pay membership, you'll be able to purchase a proud to pay member only item. So it's like a diecast armored truck, which we actually have a real armored truck that resembles this race is modeled after something real. And each one of them is numbered. This is an addition of a thousand. So these are the type of product offerings we have. We also have like a all money in branded money counter, not just a bill counter, but the real money counters. Same ones you see if you're a bank teller and they're running through money, like saying it's the real deal money counter, which is something true to our brand. Obviously with the name like all money in, no money out. Yeah, that's what we're doing. Amazing. So how does one become a member? How do people join this community? First, we went backwards. We went to, you know, the a thousand Crenshaw signed copy official owners of the physical asset first. And then we went to also the mailbox money mixtape in 2015. There's a hundred copies of those at a thousand bucks a pop. So, you know, picked up those original eleven hundred there and then, you know, have been slowly rolling this thing out. You know, we're in the 10 year anniversary of the Crenshaw mixtape. So back on October 8th, directly on a 10 year anniversary, we had a little pop up event. So the collaborators on the project, alongside some new Web3 people, we wanted to get mixed in as partners into this, all came together to kind of announce this and get things rolling. So moving forward, the only way to become proud to pay is to own the Marathon Line NFT. So you come over to the Marathon Vault, you'd be able to purchase right there on the site. I'm obviously eliminating all the blockchain, you know, purchase a credit card, spend up managed wallets behind. But we're truly Web3. You know, that's another element to this is that there's no reason for us to shy away from blockchain, shy away from the NFT world. So while there is your non crypto native routes to everything, these are still, you know, we're operating either on an L2 polygon or an L1 Ethereum to make everything happen. And that's running in the background. So making sure that a true crypto, a true NFT lover can come in with their own non -custodial wallet and get the experience the same exact way that we can, you know, off chain. Which seems true to the final vision of what JP and Nipsey and the team were building, you know, way back when, bringing it to the future. We'll definitely keep our eyes out for it. Guys, thank you for spending so much time with us. We look forward to seeing where you guys are going with it. We'll make sure in the show notes, people can find everything you guys just talked about as well. And just, yeah, really appreciate you giving us the stories, JP, the kind of origin story of how this all came together, which was fascinating. TK, all the stuff you guys are doing with one of none. Really appreciate your time. Of course. Appreciate you guys. Thank you. I Sam, think this is the first time we had like a historical like piece of paper, receipts were ready. JP was not messing around. He remembers everything and he was there and it was really incredible to hear his stories. Yeah, I mean, I, as a hip hop fan, Nipsey was always on my radar as someone, as a creator musically. I did not realize how deep you went when it comes to his thinking about the ecosystem around his membership community and his fan base. I remember, I believe it's in Bobby Hundred's first book. He actually talks about how powerful Nipsey's like thinking was around this stuff. And he was a big inspiration for Bobby as well. So I was glad that we had them on 50th anniversary of hip hop in November. We had to make sure we represented. So pretty excited about that. And let's just wrap it up there and we'll see you guys next week. Dempsey, thank you guys as always for tuning in. This was a little bit of a different episode. So let us know what you thought and you love it. If you want to hear more sort of culture and hope you all have a wonderful week. We'll catch you all next week.

A highlight from AI Today Podcast: Generative AI Series: Implementing Generative AI in production
"The AI Today podcast, produced by Cognolytica, cuts through the hype and noise to identify what is really happening now in the world of artificial intelligence. Learn about emerging AI trends, technologies, and use cases from Cognolytica analysts and guest experts. Hello, and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host, Kathleen Mulch. And I'm your host, Ron Schmelzer. And everybody's talking about generative AI. It's everywhere. You can't not talk about it because it's becoming part of every system. And we've had here on the AI Today podcast our generative AI series, where we've been talking about the whole range of things that we want to think about with generative AI, from how does it work, to how do we use it, to how do we build things on top of generative AI, to what are the challenges and the drawbacks, and some of the ethical and trustworthy concerns. And if you haven't heard any of those podcasts, I encourage you to do so. And, well, today's podcast will continue on that sort of trend. And if you're new to AI Today podcast, you should know this is not the only thing we do. There actually are now entire podcasts where all they do is talk about generative AI, not even just AI, but just generative AI. Hey, I wouldn't be surprised if some of those podcasts were actually being generated by generative AI altogether. I'm sure that's going to be extremely common. But we are real people here at AI Today, and we've been going strong on AI since 2017. So we have lots of topics that we cover across the board, interviews with great thought leaders for AI, our failure series, our glossary series, our trustworthy AI series, and our series on all sorts of things around making AI work today. But today we're going to dive deep from something from our training. We can share with you about actually putting some generative AI stuff in production. Exactly. And if you're not familiar with CPM AI, we'll make sure to link to it in the show notes. It's a best practices methodology on running AI and machine learning projects. And we have many CPM AI certified individuals now globally. So we encourage you to check that out. But in today's podcast, we're going to be talking about implementing generative AI in production. As Ron mentioned, this is in our generative AI series. So we go over a bunch of different things. But we're really going to talk about how actually generative AI is being implemented in production, some of the things you need to watch out for, and some future looking things as well. We also are going to talk about the risks of generative AI in production. There's a lot of power. We talk about how transformative technology can really bring a lot of transformation, but it also is not without its risks. And at AI Today, that's what we like to discuss, right? We like to weigh all sides of these technologies. So we'll dig deeper into those topics as well. So generative AI provides a lot of really amazing things that we can do to create text and images and other things and really allows us to solve perhaps many of the problems that we have in our AI systems and allows us to shortcut some of the things, especially if we don't answer questions on data or do document classification, any of the things that we are trying to do with generative AI systems and the foundation models upon which they are based. The large language models in particular for the text generators and the image generators with their foundation models as well. And they're really very easy to use. I mean, that's actually part of the challenge here is that pretty much anybody who has access to any of a number of systems can generate text, can generate images, and it's actually in some ways a little bit too easy because we've moved from this idea of citizen developers who might be able to do low code or no code apps or data science. They can build, you know, dashboards or whatever in their favorite tool, which does require still a little bit of know -how and some sense there. But we've moved now to basically anybody could be a rogue generative AI user. They could be writing you an email and that could be generated by generative AI. They could be responding to a customer without your even knowing that they're using generative AI or doing anything, you know? So that's actually a bit of a challenge. So actually when we're putting generative AI into operation, it's not even a matter of how do we make it work because everybody's making it work every day. The question is, how do you make it work in the context of some greater application that you are trying to do? Because generative AI in many cases is not the ends, it's the means. We're doing this in the midst of something, as I mentioned, generating an email to a customer or producing some images for some, say, e -commerce application or whatever it is. So really the primary thing that we do when we put generative AI into operation, if we're not just directly using the interfaces of some of these third -party generative AI systems where you just type in a prompt and you get a response, that's not your application. You have nothing to build. You're just the user of that application. So that doesn't really apply to CPMAI. Everything we're talking about CPMAI is when you are building something and you're creating something that's specific for your needs, then it's not just a matter of using that interface. You have to create something. And therefore what we're doing is we're usually building applications that are around that surround a generative AI system to make use of the inputs into the generative AI and take the outputs and do something with those outputs. So when we talk about that in the context of CPMAI, we're really talking about the scaffolding, which is everything around the model, not the model itself. The model itself may be provided, perhaps a foundation model that you're using off the shelf or you fine -tuned, or a generative AI solution that you're querying with an API. So therefore everything you're doing is building stuff around it. And that stuff you build around it can follow very traditional application development methodologies. You don't need the data -centric CPMAI to build a web application or a mobile application or a back office application or RPA solution or something like that. So when we're doing generative AI in production, really what we're doing is we are creating, we're using the tools and techniques of prompt engineering, if I'm doing generative AI, or of handling inputs and outputs and really, and also handling the responses, the generative AI, and basically deciding if the generative AI response is sufficient, whether or not it needs to be reprompted or it needs to be modified in some way. And so when we are using these generative AI systems, we're building scaffolding, we really have a choice that we can make. We can either have our own generative AI model, perhaps we're using one that's off the shelf that we have access to. It could be a large language model like Llama or something like that, which the models are available. You can use them. You may not be able to retrain. They're gigantic. You may not be able to retrain them, but you can use them directly. Or stable diffusion, image generation, those models are open and available for download and use. And in some cases, even the weights are provided so you can retrain them if you need to or fine tune them, do whatever you need to do. The other option is not to host that generative AI solution at all, but instead to query the generative AI solution through an API that goes to that provider. So it could be OpenAI's GPT API, or it could be, sorry, OpenAI's ChatGPT API, or it could be any of the other APIs that are out there that allow you to query and use those models and get the responses back. So it could be, here's an audio file, generate a transcript, or it could be, here's a prompt, generate an image, or here's some prompt, generate some text response that follows a particular format using a particular prompt, or here's my document, I'm going to prepare it and I'm going to use tools perhaps like Langchain to combine the inputs, use my own documents, provide that prompt with a little bit of context and take the response and then manipulate that response in some way. That's what tools like Langchain do. They allow you to use both the onsite as well as the API hosted ones where you're just making queries. So really the trade -off when you make a decision as to, well, should I use one of these models that I can host on my site, or should I use an API, really comes down to control and quality in one hand. So you may have higher quality with some of these API ones that are being constantly updated and and revised enhanced in many different ways, and you may not have the ability to retrain those models, and it may take a significant amount of computing time and data and all that sort of stuff, and you need to be fairly expert and to make those models work. Some of those foundation models even use things like reinforcement learning to modify the outputs and things like that. So you may use those really high quality models through the API or through other methods, or you may want control, because the thing is is that when you're using the API, you don't have a lot of control. Those versions, the quality might change in some sufficient ways. We'll talk a little bit about that that are not in your control. You don't have control over, say, moderation features that may prevent you from querying those systems with particular prompts, or the results may come back in a moderated way. So there are benefits to the self -hosted and the API hosted version. There's also cost. APIs cost money for every query, but of course, if you're hosting them yourself, you have your own costs in terms of cost of hosting and serving and the infrastructure costs, whether it's on premise or in the cloud, and there's also complexity. If you're using an API, you don't have to worry about uptime and availability and queryability and that sort of stuff, so if you're hosting yourself, you have control over it, which of course means that you have to be responsible for uptime and availability, and there's tradeoffs because the API ones, sometimes they're not available either. Sometimes they respond too slowly. So you can see these are pretty evenly weighted. There's no overriding decision as to where and how to run and interact with the generative AI system in production. You have to understand what the tradeoffs are and make one that is relevant to your application. This is where CPMAI comes in. Even if you're not building the model, even if you're not managing the model and you're just dealing with scaffolding, the decision you have to make here is the method and means by which you would interact with the generative AI solution, and that goes into when you're doing the workbook to make a decision if you're using generative AI, how you interact with it, and perhaps that might change over time with versioning. So I do want to mention that there are some risks involved with using generative AI solutions in your production environment, regardless of whether it's a third -party hosted one with an API call or something that you are running locally. There's so much power in these big models that are doing some amazing things, but there's really a lot of risk, and the biggest thing that is it really does require constant and continuous monitoring. Almost every response needs to have some monitoring and management. You really can't set it and forget a generative AI system, even if they're doing amazing things, because we have lots of real issues with generative AI systems in production. Of course, we have the issue of hallucinations, which are models returning facts that aren't true, or images that have problems and things like that, whatever it is. They are clearly real. If you've spent any amount of time with a generative AI solution, you would have experienced that firsthand. But then the second issue we have is this constant need to moderate the outputs to make sure that they don't go rogue in a number of ways, obviously producing unacceptable content that could cause harms. If we're exposing this to a customer, we don't want generative AI systems making recommendations that could be harmful to the customer, or say inappropriate things, or do inappropriate things, images that are inappropriate, text that's inappropriate. Every response needs some monitoring, needs some oversight. We need more, ironically, with a generative AI solution, we kind of need more human in the loop than we might have with, say, just a text summarization system that we built ourselves that has much more fine grain. It may not be able to do all the things that a generative AI solution can do, but during our model evaluation phase, we were able to control the inputs and outputs and have some expectation, as it's not going to come back and generate some completely random text because of the limited nature of the models that we might have built that didn't have the general internet text. But with generative AI solutions, we don't necessarily have all the data or know all the data that these systems have been trained on, so we can't guarantee those outputs. So there needs to be this constant need for moderation, human in the loop, awareness, ability to flag and report inappropriate, or systems that, or like answers that these, if they hallucinate and tell your customer that they can do something with their bank account that they can't do, or that they make up an answer to an FAQ because that's how the tech system works, that's not good because the customer will say, well, your system recommended this or said this. So there's a constant need for looking at those responses. The other issue is that, and this has become a bit noticeable, that generative AI systems can get so -called dumber, that you might have had an expected level of quality and be like, oh my goodness, this GPT system is providing amazing results. Those results are not guaranteed to stay amazing. They could start feeling, well, not less amazing, that all of a sudden you're like, I didn't do anything to the system. I'm just making the exact same prompts and handling them the exact same way. But all of a sudden the responses are becoming less sophisticated. And there may be reasons for it, perhaps, if you're using a third party API hosted model, they may have changed something in the nature of the responses, but how are you going to handle that? How are you going to handle this issue of the system not performing as well as it used to, even when you've done everything in your power to engineer the prompts in a specific way and do those things? And this is a problem because it basically requires continuous monitoring, not just for the appropriateness of the responses, but also for the quality of the responses. And that's because API, especially the ones where you access over an API and you're just paying a penny or two or three or whatever the cost is per request, those versions can change rapidly. The cost can even change as well, that you might have, in order to gain a specific level of response, all of a sudden, perhaps you might have to spend more, do more interactions, provide more prompts, whether you have to use a more expensive model or whether you just have to do more prompts, either way, it's just going to cost more money. And that's an issue. The next biggest risk, which are in our systems in production, is that adversarial prompts, the adversarial ones where people try to come in and make your system do something that they're not supposed to, reveal information or say things that they're not supposed to. Very real. Lots of people are pushing the boundaries here, trying to figure out how to make systems do what they're not supposed to do, and they're becoming more and more dangerous, whether it's revealing information that you used in your training data that you don't want, whether it's stuff that you've done in your prompt and prompt engineering that you're not trying to reveal to everyone. These are issues because you don't have necessarily full control over how these systems respond unless you have some pretty good moderation and human loop, all the stuff we talked about before. So really one of the big things we have to say about this is that while generative AI in production offers a ton of value and may really shortcut your systems and allow you to do things much faster and provide much better results than you could possibly ever do yourself, you do have less control over generative AI, perhaps, than you might have with a more, say, purpose built from the ground up model that you developed yourself from all the data that you know and you have using your own controls and techniques. And even if we think, well, this has always been the issue because we have cloud -based systems, we don't always have control over cloud -based systems, well, you actually have even less control over generative AI than cloud. At least with the cloud, you have some control over what's been deployed. You may have some version controls over infrastructure. You may be able to have some control over the ingress and the outgress and that sort of stuff. But with generative AI systems, whether it's your own model that you're hosting or whether it is a third -party model you're accessing, you really don't have as much control over some of those quality outputs and therefore it really does require the cost of monitoring. And that may be a risk or a cost or a resource issue that you may not have. So some things to consider on both the plus sides of putting generative AI in production and some of the risks and challenges in doing so. I hope you got a little bit of information there. As mentioned, we dive quite a bit deeper into the whole spectrum of generative AI and our CPMAI training and certification. And for those of you that aren't aware, organizations and especially folks that are consulting, that are doing and implementing AI for other people should be doing it with best practices. We know everybody's learning as we go. That's just the way it is when you have technology that is literally changing as we go. But that doesn't mean making all the mistakes that everybody else is making. One of the biggest value propositions that we have for CPMAI is that it's based on all this learning experience from others who are really running AI projects across the board, everything from the business understanding to the data understanding and the preparation, building models, including shortcutting a lot of these needs with generative AI, and then of course, making sure these models are actually working, testing them, evaluating them, and then getting these various AI systems into production. That is the CPMAI methodology as a whole. Now, when we spend time with folks who are in the business of project management, a lot of folks have their own methods and processes for running projects. And certainly this doesn't make any of those existing project management approaches obsolete. Sometimes we actually find ourselves running into some challenges with terminology where some terms are used in very, very different ways in different fields. And I think for those of you who are listening who are, say, maybe afraid that their project management expertise may be obsolete or maybe don't have any project management expertise, what we want to tell you is that CPMAI is here to help advance the state of your AI projects and make you successful, providing those critical success features, those checkpoints, those criteria success criteria, if you will, as well as the best practices and the ordering for running these projects for success. So give it a chance. There are some people getting certified. We keep hearing from folks who tell us that CPMAI has really helped them evolve their own learning, their organization's learning, and make their project successful and join all these legions of others, whether they're implementing AI for themselves in their organization or doing so on behalf of others as consultants. So let us know. Take a look at it. If you're interested in learning more about Intro to CPMAI, you can find out more. We have our free intro class at aitoday .live slash CPMAI.

But the isn't the the podcast. He's doing a podcast. That has a new show show though the no the radio show is the same show. Yeah right so why would you know. But the podcast is reinventing himself right. So we'll see we'll see we'll see we'll see what he does with the podcast to kind of change things. Rome is burning ended. The year i graduated high school billy. It's been a while. No that's my point is it's been a year. Was that twenty twelve wow. I'm surprised i'm surprised it was that reason.

This was the occasion. That i take an evening shower right so if i take an evening shower gel my hair afterwards prior to going to bed now for the most part i my hair in the morning and i carry it through all the way throughout the day i go to bed with the same gel in my hair and wake up the next morning with you know some dried out hair five to go out in public splashing water in it so it doesn't look like there's you know i was gonna say. Isn't that what you do anyway. You just go to bed with the messed up hair already. It's not messed up though because this astray strange questions of gelling your hair that much because there to be repercussions the only rep repercussions. That could come as a correction.

You can put a little bit product in in blow on a very low like push.

Is there anything you can think of my In the podcast is a really obscure by told you this when we went to note base. The keith shop in essex support local gig shop support your local shops. But every time luke mentions his wife's name early there was there was an episode about mabel episode at twelve when we were just chopping so carreira infractions and for some reason.

Oh there is place in my head even today where we were on his end kosta sewing so soon every errol's name i kept thinking that in the back of my mind so that always gets me everytime time oversleep. If we're allowed to see each other again. I see your wife again. I won't say early to for fear of not being in but that was one of the brief shining moment. that's personal. I mentioned my guy. Henry just mentioned that daffyd of fed up the charts to cover his tracks. Oh no please. Don't put that on there but we did anyway. Some of the favorite moments come on.

I'm incredibly grateful for that. I think that's where we kind of like discovered the and particularly matt who already podcasting. That's why. I think we figured out actually this thin hair. There's something where we can just literally turn up and talk star wars almost in a structured way lot. We would meet up with each other a lot right. Which what about this. This and this today i got that would be like before you go just mention yet. The non gelatin while nice really wanted to talk star wars because Off my films. And i wanted to talk star wars mainly just you know the films because the thing is going to be a long form thing where you do one hundred episode. We cover everything. But i want to talk about films man of this and sometimes i work in post. Which is what which is kind of what happened. 'cause like we're we're lucky to said so we can talk wars. We can chat so we can talk easily so why no one else was. This guy wants to come on the three or four three shows and then the solo special was it was kind of two It was time for the sessions to a doctor that but even after that it's still want to do more assume electrically hooper as life gets in the way but i was wanted to do more but it was it was nuke remember in the message it was on a it was about six o'clock in the evening on our day was but six even as new boy saying Into again durenberger. We said we wanted to do the future. All star wars and talk about the future. The franc choice treat his to get on and do that. And i don't remember is a sign or the next night but it was very very very quickly afterwards. It was back on the train again. Yeah it was very sporadic kuzina the beginning lot. We didn't have shedule at first. I remember saying you know. Well i think there should. There should be biweekly and earn minimum. That was pushing more. Well i think weeklies more feasible. And i went. I see point but if that's the case we need try an aim to reduce the time on the cost and that took a while that some practices because we can talk but it was still good cry on it it was really really good crack and the chatswood a nothing is not could even from the early days we could kind of like not hundred percents the auto oil and stuff as we still don't die but we could get by it which i think ours lot. Minuses is so unusual star wars fans to be like not. I mean to be out of order but that certainly reputation right now that you prove that wrong and now one hundred episodes in our community is prevent wrong. There are so many people install was an fandom guilmette even if you disagree with someone even if xyz ain't favorite i'ma damaso so good ryuhei for the same reason and we actually no room for this list. Whatever rose tico said love. Your love could always say. Mr shout out to the segments gone boy. We lost you can in character spotlight.
