"D++, I have a question for you on what happened just yesterday. So a couple of things. One is, as you say, that, you know, somebody was saying that, yeah, stay on saying that ASIC is going to be upgraded or something. So isn't it, there is some effect like Lindy or something, some principal effect saying that we can only raise it by 2x every year. We can have upgraded by the 2x on a data space or on a mining hardware. Is it true? I don't know if I follow the question. I mean, like, if you want to make the same amount of revenue every time we undergo the happening, if Bitcoin 2x's each cycle, then you're not... Revenue in dollar terms, right? In dollar terms, sure. Not in BTC terms. Okay, understood, understood. And can you give us a summary on what just happened and when, when mining on a mobile, sorry, not verification node on a mobile, what do you think, when we will have it? Being able to mine on your phone? Never. Very fine, very fine node on mobile. Oh, no. Oh, no. Okay, that's different. So I met, this is actually a cool question. So already you can run what's called an SPV node on your phone. Simple, simplified payment verification, which is like a light client. And you can do that currently. Phoenix is a great example of a light node. Breeze is a great example of a light node. Both are lightning enabled. And if you want to run a fully validating node and download the entire blockchain, then you're going to need, you know, 500 plus gigabytes of storage. And believe it or not, I met the guy who's working on the new Bitcoin GUI. So pretty. I'm so excited. And it is going to be able to run on your phone natively. So I don't know, I need to ask him if you can actually run like a fully validating node on your phone with a project they're working on. I'm not sure, but I have seen it and I think it's coming soon. Hey, D++, since we don't get to hear you very often in this space. What are you seeing in the space that is making you bullish? So my bullishness on Bitcoin is just proportionate to how well I understand it. And although I am a Bitcoin educator, there's a lot that I don't know. Nobody knows everything. Bitcoin is too vast for any one person to know everything. Even the core developers don't know everything that Bitcoin has to offer. So I learn more about Bitcoin every day and that's what makes me more bullish. It's not the news or, you know, this country is going to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender or like this company is going public like that stuff is cool. OK, but to me, what makes me excited is understanding better what Bitcoin does. And I was I was kind of referring to, you know, things that you're seeing being built. Mutiny wallet. Is what I'm excited about, so mutiny is a lightning node that runs in your phone as a progressive Web app and you don't have to go through the App Store, you don't have to download anything. So a couple of things. It's censorship resistant in that the App Store cannot turn you off. And two, if you have a phone that might not have the latest and greatest specs, say you live in the global south, for example, you have access to this PWA anywhere in the world. And these guys are cool. They live in Austin. I get to hang with them every week. And even if I didn't think they were cool, I would still love their app. It's called Mutiny. It is a lightning node in the browser. It's cool as shit. Coolest product I've seen in a while. So it's like Phoenix, but browser version basically, right? Exactly. And the way they figured out how to do this is using the LDK under the hood, the lightning development kit, which is a toolkit for building your own node created by block or spiral or whatever they're calling themselves. And they figured out how to take the LDK and create a progressive Web app using Wasm. And it works. I'm a customer. I'm a happy customer. Oh, nice. Can you spell it again, please? Mutiny. M-U-T-I-N-Y. Wallet, I think, dot com. Thank you. Thank you very much. So I have one last question before Alex kick me. And I'm very happy to have you again. So D++, if I am from India, okay, and suppose I think that I want to start something like not custodian service, but something like what Swan is doing here in the state. If I want to do it in India, how do you suggest that I should go with the custodian? I don't want any custodian service over there. I don't want to give the power control to anyone. How would you do it with the multi-sig or some other solutions? Just imagine you are a CEO of the Swan. How would you take that problem over there? So you're saying you want to build a business like Swan or you want to be a customer who does business business business. OK, sorry for my bad English. No, no, I understand the question. So the business model you're going to look at is not the business model that Swan has. It's the business model that Bull Bitcoin has in Canada. So research Bull Bitcoin. Bull Bitcoin is an exchange. They do allow you to buy Bitcoin, but they never touch it. It goes straight into your cold storage.
"pwa" Discussed on Bankless
"Hey, you better not refund it to yourself because you're a shareholder. I own five shares. If I win, then I get my own trading fees. I will do this in a public trustless way. Trustless, trust me, bro. But yeah, that's the plan. What's funny about, so one question I have for you about the share price. So it's basically the shares go up the more demand there is or is there some sort of algorithm? Correct, it's just like a Uniswap curve. So as somebody... Oh, it's a Uniswap curve. Yeah. Yeah. It's an X times Y equals K kind of thing. So as more people buy my shares, they get more pricey. Okay. So I think I'm top 20. I think I'm top 20. Dang, David. Now you're just, I feel like... I'm just ultra chill right now. Let's talk about... I'm like top 20. Yeah. Let's talk about what this is doing in general. So friend.tech on basis generated 650,000 for users, for users. They've gone to people like David. After launching a beta a week ago, users received the 5% shares you talked about. With over 250,000 transactions and 23,000 unique users, user counts are higher than Ethereum's largest NFT platforms combined. This is a tweet from a Masari analyst giving us this info. So those are some of the stats that make this happen. Okay. So I've got this app open. It's called friendmex.com. What in the world am I looking at right now? Friendmex is a reference to Bitmex, which is this old derivatives exchange that Arthur Hayes used to run before they got in trouble with the law. But this is just like the dashboard of friends. If you are a trader. So like bots and people who are making bets on other people are making money here. So like some people have made a lot of money. I think I saw somebody... People like profiting 30 ETH. If you go over to the discover on the far right side and scroll down about 20-ish people, you'll find me again on the leaderboard because I'm coming up, you know, using my trading fees to pump up my positions. You have to keep scrolling, David. There you go. I trust to say it. You just scroll right past it. Oh, there you go. My profile picture is perfect. Your profile is perfect. Yeah. Mark, I have a market cap of 18.8 ETH. What's so cool is that is the value of David Hoffman, apparently. 18 ETH. Yeah. You know, I think you personally, I think you're worth more. But I'm also not going to be buying a share anytime soon, but maybe I should. Maybe I should. Maybe you should, yeah. What's cool about this is, and people are, you know, maybe asking why we're talking about this so much. This is, this friend mech's website was just spun up, like, because all of this data is public. All of this data is open and you can create an exchange on top of base, on top of friend.tech. So friend.tech is powered by smart contracts. Completely in the background. All of it is open source. Can you go click my profile so you can see my chart? See my chart of my net worth? Who are you? Right there. I just click this? Yeah, they can click. Look at that chart. Oh, that's bullish. Oh, that's so bullish. That's a bullish chart. That's a buy. And you can connect, you can connect your wallet right from this app and trade. Although I don't know, it's, you know, maybe not audited. You'd be careful where you connect your wallet here, folks. Okay. We're not necessarily endorsing this. You know why I'm excited about this is, you know, not, not just to buy different influencers like David or Kobe or anything else. I feel like this is very much a proof of concept for a next thing that we've unlocked, right? You know, last week we were talking about Unipig and how that felt like a paradigm shift. We just unlocked layer twos for the first time. This to me feels kind of like this. This to me almost feels a little bit like CryptoKitties did at, you know, what, when was that 2017, 2018? We were like, oh, NFTs, like we just unlocked some new primitive. This, this Twitter poster agrees with me, Nicholas. Friend tech, friend.tech is not a revolution in social tokens. It's the wow moment about a brand new stack. PWA, progressive web app. That's the Safari app we were talking about. Web to login. Oh, that's a great point. You could just log in with what your Apple ID, your Google ID, embedded self custodial wallet. So it's still bankless layer two transaction fees. So you're not paying like dollars for transactions to this iOS notifications. It's all of those things combined. And to me, it feels like a proof of concept. I mean, likely this thing is just, you know, it's going to pump and dump. It is natively a Ponzi scheme. I guess there is some utility in, in here in that if somebody purchases a share of someone else, then they unlock this chat room. We totally forgot the main point of this. We'll talk about that. Owning a share unlocks a chat room. And so like, why are people buying my shares? I'm actually in there like answering questions that people have directly. So like providing value to my shareholders, right? Like there's a room we can direct access to the influencer that you've, you know, influencer, whoever you own a share for, you can go talk to them directly. And if like they don't respond or they give you shitty answers, you can dump them and move on to the next one until you find a room that provides value to you. It's cool. I think it's very cool. And I will say it's the most fun I've had in crypto in a while. And it felt, it felt very much like, um, are you still active in there? Um, I, I bought other things here, so I also, I did, I, you know, we both sold each. I, I activated on Friday and Saturday and I was like, oh, this is cool. I see where this is going. I'm gonna let other people like do these things. But you know, maybe, maybe, look, maybe, maybe Ryan is underpriced relative to David on friend.tech. I'm, you know, I'm just saying that's a possibility. It is. It is a possibility. Yeah. So you're taking a bet that Ryan's going to start becoming active rather than the guy who's already active, uh, giving away 1.4 ether to his shareholders. What are you doing? You don't even have, oh my God, give away. Look at this. See this. These are the types of games that like, it's basically every creator is. I suppose, incented in like to do something. And, and I think that the chat room is the first layer of utility, but other layers of utility can be added. Like what, imagine if this was scaled out to like, Kobe was teasing his followers with feet pics. Okay. Right. Like, um, imagine, you know, okay. So I was right. It's, it's only fans for crypto bros. So, but what happens if you scale this out beyond kind of like the, the, um, the crypto crowd and you scale this out to like, I don't know, music artists. I mean, how much would people pay for like Taylor Swift, chat room, like a share of that, you could see how this scales and how the social games, like it's just social clout, economic games, uh, meets crypto. And it just, something about this for me just kind of works or unlock something that's going to be absolutely big. And again, I don't know that friend.tech will capture all of this, but somebody's going to, we're, we're in a new frontier here. I think really the biggest pressure that I see on this, on the future is the progressive web app. This is the crypto native application that just routes around the 30% tax of Apple. And if this becomes standard, if like a lot of people start, you know, pro providing services through progressive web apps that are crypto. And so like anyone that wants to do their thing, but they can't because of Apple, they just start doing this progressive web app instead. It's a bargaining chip against Apple because we just routed around their gate. Guys, it's, it's the open internet, right? Because if you, if you tried to do this on the app store, they'd want 30% transaction fee for all of this. Like it wouldn't work. Like their systems are not set up to handle crypto economics in this way. And so we, we, it's a big bargaining chip that the crypto industry has to force Apple's hands to either lower their fee or just like crypto in or do something. Or we'll just, you know, progressive web app our way around their date. Guys, I'm only half joking when I'm about to say this. Our Ponzi games are going to change the world. They're going to change the internet. Like for real, this is going to lead to a more open internet. Ponzi games versus Ponzi schemes. Ponzi schemes are where somebody is a rug puller. Ponzi games is where it's kind of just a collective game of chicken that we all agreed to play. Well, I mean, some of these influencers, some of these influencers on there might be rug pullers. You don't know. I mean, some of them might be, they could watch what game they're playing. They could walk among us right now. Uh, what do we got next? Okay. The SEC versus Coinbase. I feel like this is the Avengers assembling here, David, because a set of lawyers, uh, filed what's called an amicus brief saying the SEC should stop, should leave Coinbase alone, basically should drop the case. Okay. And, um, what is an amicus brief? You might ask, do you have that question, David? I know what an amicus brief is. It sounds like some lawyers speak. Okay. I think it basically is lawyer speak. It's basically where a bunch of outside lawyers who have some level of, of prestige, some level of legitimacy, um, write their opinion on a case, either while the case is in progress or, you know, before it goes, why did they do this? Um, you know, they just want to communicate their position. And so depending on the, the level of legitimacy, I think court system, like the court system, the legal system will kind of look on this, not as a piece of evidence necessarily, but, um, as a, you know, an element of the argument here. And so this is a bunch of lawyers who've stood up and said, Hey, the SEC is out of line here. So the law professors are from Yale, university of Chicago, UCLA, Boston university, uh, and they go through and they school the SEC on the history and meaning of an investment contract both during and after the passage of the original federal securities act in 1933, the act that gives the SEC their power. And what are their conclusions? Their conclusions are basically that the SEC's argument that crypto tokens are trading on secondary markets, our investment contracts is wrong. That's what their conclusion is. I think the significance of this is not just that this opinion is being expressed. The crypto industry has been trying to express this opinion for years now. The significance of this is that it is a band of legal minds who are putting forth a legal document, which is now in the public space for anyone and all to use in any sort of future legal proceedings that they might need to use it. So I think like really it's like these Avengers coming together to produce this future document that allows for any other lawyer to leverage the arguments if they ever find themselves in the positions of needing to be leveraged. And so it's ammo, it's collective ammo for us as an industry to shoot. And that's, is that fair? I feel like I think that's totally fair. Yep. And so this is a 16 Z crypto and paradigm also filing an amicus brief that is as similar and their argument is also similar. The SEC's approach is a significant and problematic expansion of its regulatory authority and even threatens purchases of Taylor Swift concerts and Teslas. Oh no, Taylor Swift shares. Yeah, definitely French here, David. Senator Lummis as well has added to the voice of the lawyers coming out swinging against the SEC, asking the courts to actually drop the lawsuit entirely. I don't know how often that happens where a senator like chastises a regulator and says like the court system should absolutely drop the case. Meanwhile, there was actually some good news on the regulatory front this week. Coinbase announced that the National Futures Association, which is apparently a CFTC designated SRO, has approved a Coinbase financials market as a registered futures commission merchant. Coinbase can now offer futures contract in Bitcoin and Ether to eligible customers inside of the United States, inside of the United States. That's us. That's us. That's big, right? So Coinbase was recently, like six months ago or so, making a big push to be international because they could not do this, because they could not offer competitive products and services that push so much United States capital offshore to things like Binance and FTX. So now they are given the green light to do some of these future stuff inside the United States so that Coinbase can do it. So that's great news. Yeah, CFTC playing nice, the SEC still not playing nice. But, you know, two steps forward, one stop back and we'll get there. Eventually, David, speaking of two steps forward, SPF is now your neighbor. What were we teasing in the intro? Where's SPF right now? Yeah, so two steps forward to jail. The federal judge has revoked SPF's bail for attempting to tamper with witnesses, so that he has been moved from house arrest with his parents in Palo Alto, California, to a New York jail awaiting his criminal trial on October 2nd. He was in his parents' basement? Yes, yes, he was attempting to tamper with witnesses and therefore violated the terms of the bail. Turns out, if you're on bail, you're not allowed to tamper with witnesses. OK, prosecutors, so mental note for seems reasonable, but OK. Prosecutors allege that SPF repeatedly tried to corruptively influence witness and interfere with a fair trial through attempted public harassment and shaming. Wow. OK, so and so he's in New York. Not only is he in New York, he is in Brooklyn. Really? Yeah. So a federal judge revoked bail for FTX founder, Sam Bankman-Fried, and the crypto entrepreneur was sent to a crowded Brooklyn administrative prison known for grueling conditions as he awaits trial in October. The quote from someone who's familiar with the matter says the existence is pretty bleak of the inside of the jail. Federal prosecutors that have alleged that Bankman-Fried, 31, violated his bail agreements, of course, communicating with a New York Times reporter about Caroline Ellison, his former girlfriend, who previously served as CEO of Alameda, of course. And Ellison, Caroline, has pleaded guilty to multiple fraud charges and entered a plea deal to testify against SPF. So we have, you know, ex-girlfriend, ex-boyfriend, you know, in a prisoner's dilemma together. Apparently, SPF released her diary, which he had access to, which is just like, I mean, he's a sleazewall, so it's not beneath him. Of course he would. But that's why he's back in jail, because he's tampering with witnesses. He's like, I put the address of where the jail is in Google Maps and in my apartment. It's like a 30 minute bus ride. It's not that. That's so bizarre. But David, I'm not sure if the corruption stops just with SPF. So the DOJ this week released an indictment alleging that SPF was lobbying Congress and high level government officials. This is pretty big news. You wonder who else was caught up in SPF's trap here. And it sounds like there's a lot of people on Capitol Hill that may need to provide some answers around this. Yeah, I don't think this is news to anyone in the crypto industry who's been following the FTX case. But of course, FTX and SPF just like spewed out what the DOJ is alleging to be over hundreds of millions of dollars to both Democrats and Republicans. So quote from this article, the defendant's use of customer deposits to conduct a political influence campaign was a part of the wire fraud scheme charged in the original indictment. And as a part of the originally charged money laundering scheme, the defendant also concealed the source of fraudulent proceeds through political straw donations. So the DOJ is on the case, which is great. We're going to get some more clarity and we're going to see who turned a blind eye to all that incoming money from FTX. David, this is absolutely crazy. But this actually might make Gary Gensler a witness in this case. Okay. Which would mean if that happens. What is not being charged is that Gary Gensler received money. That's not that's not just to make sure that it's crystal clear. It's true. We don't know. But he might be a witness. He could still be compelled to testify. And that would mean that SPF's lawyers would be able to cross-examine Gensler under oath at a trial. Yeah.

Anyways, Opti, we're talking about time chain. Yeah, yeah. So, TC, I forget when the last time you came on here. It was probably like six months ago plus, maybe. So let's just start from the beginning. What is time chain calendar and why did you create it in the first place? Time chain calendar is my own personal perspective and way of visualizing the Bitcoin time chain. You know, we've got some really incredible tools and resources out there. Everyone's familiar with like mempool space. You might have seen some really cool other visualizers like bitfeed.live is one of my favorites, but there's obviously a lot going on in Bitcoin. And we talk about these different aspects of how Bitcoin works and what the protocol is, and it gets very technical very quickly. And a lot of people take a lot of time to actually start wrapping their head around it. My personal perspective, especially as a software engineer doing front end web, I really appreciate the tools out there that help visualize these things and make them easier to understand. So a little less than a year ago, I created time chain calendar as my vision of how to kind of visualize all of this information in a way that hopefully allows people to kind of see it and start understanding it better. So what you're looking at on the screen right here in the main interface on the left, you've got the big number in the middle. That's the current block height. And around it, you have some circles. The orange circle is tracking the blocks to the halving. And you can see that indicator is like at about a 10 o'clock position. And when it gets to the top, to the 12 o'clock position, that's the halving. So that is giving you a very clear visualization of how close we are to getting to the halving. And we're going to be watching that closely over the next eight, nine months or so. And then the red circle is tracking the blocks to the difficulty adjustment, which is something people may or may not understand. But to me, the halving and the difficulty adjustment are two of the most important aspects of Bitcoin. The difficulty adjustment is a roughly two week cycle. It takes 2016 blocks to get around. And that's what controls the pace of the issuance of Bitcoin blocks. So we talk about Bitcoin blocks happening every 10 minutes. Well, really, if you got more people mining, more hash power getting thrown at the network, the blocks come in faster. So if you don't have an adjustment to kind of slow down this aggressive competition for blocks, the blocks will happen faster and faster. And all 21 million probably would have been issued already years ago. So the difficulty adjustment is a really important thing. And it happens on this roughly two week cycle. You can see we just had a difficulty adjustment about a day and a half ago. And so that's the orange ring and the red ring. And then you have this little ring of these little tiny squares that are kind of irregularly placed on the circle on the inside of that. That's the last 24 hours of blocks. This is a visualization of something people may never have seen. We talk about 10 minute blocks, but they're not 10 minute blocks. They happen exactly when they happen. It could be one second. It could take two hours. And you can see the irregular distribution of the blocks around that circle. There's gaps and clumps. And this is the reality of how Bitcoin blocks get produced. So I'm trying to visualize that for you. And as I can see, you're exploring with your mouse. You can actually click on these blocks and jump to the individual blocks and see the specifics about them. But more importantly, as a whole, we just hit a block. Let's see. Hit the little flashing double arrow on that button on the right. Hit that. There we go. We just hit a block. So basically, this is a visualizer that's trying to show you what's happening in real time on Bitcoin's network. And there's a lot of extra data on the right hand side. There's a little row of data there. If you're on a bigger screen, that'll show up inside the circle. But you've got block production data in the top row. And then you've got mempool data, which shows you what's happening in the mempool. What kind of fees do I need to compete? And then I got some extra data there. You see that thing that says next halving with the purple little emoji and it says wizard? You see that? No, I'm on the right here. Click on wizard. We just hit another block. There we go. But go ahead. When it comes back, click on wizard. So this is a little link that jumps you to a quick little estimation of when the halving is going to occur. So you can see it has block 840,000 there. And you can see how many blocks to go and what date it's estimated on. Well, that's based on a 10 minute average block time. But opt to go ahead and slide that slider. And you're going to see that if you have a different block time, you're going to have a different date estimate. And so you can kind of play around with this and say, well, what date would I love the Bitcoin having to occur on? And what block time average would we need for that to happen? So this is a cool little estimation tool that's built in. You can close that. And then the last thing I'll point out, and then I'll shut up for a second, is you can find blocks in a variety of ways. We have over 802,000 blocks here in the time chain. Grab that little slider that's at the bottom of the main interface and you can just scroll right back through the chain and jump to any point in Bitcoin's history and find a block that way. You can also search directly for a block or search for a date. So yeah, this is a tool I created to just help people interact with the time chain, keep an eye on what's happening on chain and what the protocol is doing, and hopefully learn a little bit more about how Bitcoin works. Dude, love it. I love these new updates on here. These are all awesome. What's your favorite number on here? What's the number you watch the most on the time chain calendar? So I mentioned it at the beginning in the numbers section is the new feature is this 24 hours of blocks. And the visual of those blocks is really kind of mesmerizing. I find myself just looking at it constantly and kind of sitting back and going, wow, what happened there? It was like over an hour where there was this huge gap and no blocks and kind of just starting to develop more of a kind of focus on that aspect of Bitcoin. And to go along with it, there's that metric. It's in the middle of those three things that are on the top on the right side in your view, all the way on the right, you see it says last 24 hours and it says 138 of 144. That's a new metric that's on here. And I'm really appreciating watching that change over time. 144 is what you would have in a 24 hour period if the blocks were exactly 10 minutes. So you see it's less than that. You see the blocks are coming in slower. If it's higher than that, you see they're coming in faster. And I've been staring at this for the last month, month plus as I've been working on it and I've seen it go as high as like 195. I've seen it go as low as like 117. It's a really interesting little number to watch to kind of see how those miners are doing. How is block production happening on the chain and kind of quantify it in a different way. That's man. It's fucking cool. Wait, before we go on the TC, where are you scrubbing all the information from? Where are you getting all the data from? That's a great question. Currently, oh, we just hit another block. Here we go. You're about to see it. Boom. Sorry. I like the animation. I put a new little new block animation in here. So currently the data is coming from mempool space. They have a web socket API that I connect to and I'm feeding the chain data from them. But I am in the middle right now of working out a self-hosted version of the time chain calendar that you're going to be able to run off your own node. So you're going to be able to see this interface, but the data will be coming directly from your node. That is the next big release that's coming soon. One other thing I want to mention, just since we saw that new block animation, you can also turn on sounds. If you click settings, there's a little sounds tab in the settings window and you can actually turn on a choice of five different sounds. When it makes a new block, it'll actually make that audible sound. You can have that going in the background and kind of hear a little water drop or a bell sound or the audible representation of the new block getting hit. I see someone in the comments saying, where is this? This is timechaincalendar.com. This is a web app. You can get it on any device on the web. Timechaincalendar.com. If you pull it up on a mobile device, you can install it as a PWA. You just do the add to home screen thing and you get a little app icon on your phone and you can launch it right from there. Yeah, that's the business. Love it. And I do see there's fees here, so you don't even have to go to Mempool anymore. I can just keep this on my computer now because I always check mempool.space. But if you're pulling the same info, at least we get a nice little ASMR and some visuals on this. Absolutely killing it. Yeah, absolutely. I used to actually show more fine grained fees, but I found over time, all I care about is what's the most expensive fee and what's the fee that I can just put through. And I know I'm not going to get purged. So I've simplified this down to just say priority at any time. And you see that purge level and you see how many transactions and the block depth and the other important aspects of what's going on on mempool. So trying to that's another aspect of this. I know people get a little overwhelmed with it the first time they see it, but I've actually tried to keep it to a minimum amount of information so you can see what the hell's going on on this crazy Bitcoin network at any time. And it's fucking awesome. Love it, dude. Love your proof of work. Keep it up. Keep it going. This is a big contribution to the community. And one more question. You got one more question. Sorry, sorry, sorry. What's the future roadmap for this TC? Well, the web app is just going to continue to evolve, add new features. I literally launched a half-baked feature last night, which is the little alarm bell that you see on the left. You can set an alarm where you can put in a future block. You can set it by the block number or you can set it by the number of blocks in the future. And when you set the alarm, when that block gets hit, you'll hear an alarm go off. So I'm just constantly adding these little features. This thing is just going to keep evolving. But I told you I am going to do the self-hosted version on people's nodes. You can be able to run it off your own node. Over time, I actually hope to get even more data sources so you can get more public sources of this chain data to choose from. And then we're definitely going to see a smartwatch version. My inner face, people have told me that it looks like a watch face, and I agree. And that is absolutely coming up. I'm actually trying to get that done by later this year, maybe about September, November. So that's the roadmap currently. We're going to just keep plugging away. And yeah, timeshankalendar.com, let's go. Love it, bro.

"Anybody who's ever developed an app knows if you don't have like a live feed and you're having to update the app, that's costly. You got to keep doing that crap. And will users a lot of times like not even notice that you've put out an update. They'll be on an old version forever. So there's just a lot of advantages to just using basically live web as the platform. Sorry for interrupting. I just wanted to tie it back into the original conversation about the censorship thing. One thing interesting about PWA is that the set of features that allow this sort of enhancement on a web application were created by Google. And as a result, Google Chrome and other browsers that are more Google Chrome sort of related do this better than Apple's browser Safari. So it's like you do still see some of the same stuff where, you know, of course, Apple is less motivated to promote this feature on the open web because Google made it. They've dragged their feet in the past and there were several features that they were really late to the party to kind of like get the same kind of stuff working on Safari as well. And there's still a few little weird things. Like if you pull up a PWA on a Chrome or one of these other, you know, more the kind of web browsers you'll find on Androids more typically, they'll detect that a website is a PWA. They will automatically insert a little thing that says, do you want to install this? Apple Safari doesn't do that. And then in relation to Bitcoin, if you use a lightning link, there's a way to use a invoice for lightning, like a link, and you format it in a particular way. And the phone knows that it's lightning. And when you click on that on an Android device, I know on my Samsung, I'll get a little interface that says which wallet would you like to open this with?

"Me? I lost him, too, just at the moment of truth. For those coders that are looking for the instructions. And we lost you. Can you hear me now? 10 seconds. We can hear you now. Yeah, we lost you exactly. You code your app to. Yeah, you code your app to go to, like, if a user wants to zap somebody off of a post, instead of it zapping through that post, you know, you send the user to that user's profile and then you're tipping them off of their profile, which is like a different flow, right? It's a different user experience, but it, you know, allegedly gets around this, you know, it has the loophole, right? So then it got me thinking like, okay, that's why the Twitter thing doesn't work that way either. Like we've long said, oh, it would be cool to have this kind of, you know, lightning on Bitcoin. I mean, on Twitter. I mean, yeah, on Twitter and being able to do the same thing that Noster is doing and why can't we do it? And it's very clear now, like, and then even Elon came out and said, like, you know, made a comment about this, too. And it's, it's just clear that like this, this whole thing around Apple's walled garden that they've tried to create for whatever various reasons, it's legacy, it's going to die. The PWA is going to knock it out. And I'll tell you about that. Are y 'all still with me? Cause I need, I need like two minutes to tell you about PWA. And you got to at least tell us what it stands for. Yeah. Can y 'all hear me? Yeah, we can hear you. Okay. Yeah. Okay. So PWA is relatively new, but it's also at the same time, it's all things web tech. It's been around. And I lost you again. The suspense, maybe we'll have a special reappearance event next week to discuss and explain what PWA is. It's all things web tech is where you finished. And it's a great storyteller. Building the suspense, the cliffhangers. What Ant is trying to say is PWA stands for progressive web app. And it's a set of functionalities that actually Google pioneered and standardized. I actually attended a conference, gosh, six years ago or something when they were first like really formalizing and standardizing these things. And essentially what it is, is it's a few different sort of sets of configuration and bits of functionality. Nothing like major. It's basically instructing a mobile web browser, like the kinds of web browsers you have on your phone to behave a little bit differently. And what you get out of it is you get a website or a web application that's able to more closely feel and be experienced like a native app. And one of the most obvious features is that you can sort of install it. You're running the app in your little web browser. So you go to timechainstats .com in your little web browser on your phone.

"The Domus and Apple App Store, I think it would be good to touch on this. Ant, you had some really great thoughts that I valued yesterday. I'm not sure if there was new updates in the past 12 hours, maybe since yesterday's show that anyone wants to share. I did find it interesting that Jack Dorsey was tweeting about this pretty frequently. And I'll just read this just to set the stage for what I saw was one of the latest updates. But there may be something more recent than this. Domus said, Domus has to remove the zap button on posts because this is considered selling digital content. Only zaps on profiles are allowed. This cripples Domus pretty bad, but you can still zap at least. And then Jack Dorsey had a tweet that says this is still incorrect at Apple. Tipping on posts is not selling digital content. It's a form of feedback. Why limit people sending Bitcoin to each other? This is our one opportunity to build a truly global payment protocol for the Internet, which would benefit your company immensely at Tim Cook. And before I open it up to anyone's thoughts, I did find it interesting that the very first comment on Jack's tweet was someone saying, great marketing for Domus, which I never heard of until today. I just signed up. So maybe there is a little bit of a Streisand effect here. But we would love to hear anyone's thoughts on if there's a news update on this topic more recent than what I just shared, or if they have thoughts on what Apple did, what Jack was saying, anything like that. Peter, your hand up. Yeah, it's what just struck me about that comment was Apple said that this was paying for content. And if that's the case, is Apple agreeing that Bitcoin is money? I mean, in a way, I think they are. I feel like more people have come around to the fact that Bitcoin is some form of money. They would probably say, oh, it's not a good form of money and it's too volatile and not controlled and not flexible, all these things. But that is a good point, Peter. You could use this to say that they are admitting it's money. Ant, what do you got? Well, yeah, it was cool to see people like Jack and others talking about or kind of carrying the flag and talking about this mutiny wallet. Some of you all have probably seen that and we may have talked about it here a little bit. I'm not sure anymore, but they tweeted about that they were working on PWA and that they had PWA. And some others came out in support of PWA. There's questions around how it can work with decentralized identity and just the other stuff as far as PWA goes. But it was like you said PWA enough times now that you have to tell us what it is. Yeah, I will. Real quick, though, I mean, there's a couple of things. The payment issue, it's a very small nuance where if I see a post, which, yeah, you're not buying anything like it's already there. You're tipping somebody for it. So that shouldn't run afoul of Apple's 3 .1 .1 clause or whatever. It's just tipping somebody. You're not buying anything. But someone else came on and said that they had a workaround for that until this issue gets resolved on Apple's side or, you know, there's like this workaround where instead of sending that zap immediately to that person off of that post, you code your app.

"Need to you need to go through us on another front. The Swan Bitcoin YouTube channel with that had 54000 subscribers was just banned off YouTube this morning. About 45 minutes ago, we're currently appealing. This isn't the first time that that Bitcoin company YouTube channels have been deplatformed. We saw Bitcoin magazine's channel deplatformed in the middle of the last Bitcoin conference. We suspect that it was because of political motivations. Of course, we don't know what the reasoning is behind, you know, this ban from YouTube. But, you know, this is this is this is crazy. It's crazy that all this stuff is happening on the same day. And I think it really highlights the necessity for decentralized platforms, the necessity on the money front of of of why Bitcoin is necessary and also on the information front, why platforms like Noster are necessary as well. But, you know, if you're going to go through and if you're going to go through an iPhone, you know, it sucks. Apple has total control of the App Store and they get to pick and choose what apps you're allowed to install, what apps you're not allowed to install. And I suspect, especially with the European regulation that is being talked about, the basically force, you know, Bitcoin wallets and all that stuff to develop any to report any transactions over a thousand dollars. You know, I suspect governments are going to put even more pressure, you know, on these companies to get what they want. So, you know, this is some pretty crazy stuff. I want to welcome Terrence on stage. Terrence, how are you doing this morning? I'm sure that this is not a surprise to you as well, either. Correct. Yeah, Apple has a closed system. They are trusted. I do use their products, but yeah, ideally we would have something that's much more open source and people would be allowed to zap as they wish. Exactly, exactly. Let the people let the people do. You know, it's it's it's it's funny, you know, that these these companies that have benefited tremendously from the so -called free market are, you know, just cracking down. They're not allowing competition anyways. And what are your thoughts on everything that's going on? Yeah, I mean, people are going to get mad, but Apple has every right to ban whatever they want off of their platform. I mean, that's the reality of it. You have every right to go buy whatever thing you want to go by. You know, you have to make that decision. You know, there is one wrinkle, which is the progressive Web app that you'll probably see. People are going to tweet things today and, you know, probably over the next coming day is about PWA technology and you'll see PWA and what's PWA. Bottom line is, if you have a website, if you're the maker of a website and you made a what's called a responsive website, meaning that your website can automatically transform the layout to fit any screen, even a phone, then you can also easily roll out what's called a progressive Web app, which is a relatively it's already pretty old, but it's a relatively newer technology. And the way that it works is you visit a website. You guys have done this before, but it's it's changed now. But you go to a website and, you know, you can add the website to your home screen on your phone. And before that was like a bookmark and it wasn't very functional. It was just, you know, you would have a bookmark on your phone home screen. But now, you know, the browsers that, you know, Firefox, Chrome, you know, all these browsers that are accepting PWA technology are allowing you to do the same thing. So you go to the website and you click, you know, install app. It'll say install app on some browsers or it'll say, you know, add to home screen on others. But the result is the same if the website has the PWA technology.

"Talk bring it to the mac and see my notes in their opening. The chromebook opening windows and i was so so so excited about it but i felt right now. There is no way to run that. Pwa in bed. I can run the mac. I can cheat undo it running back. But i cannot run it in the ipad. That obviously is where my pencil is. So still if you want to test it. Here's how you can test that you will see the link announcement initially said. That was going to be only available for. Hp crumble kicks too but he's you installers you can play. We have played with it and it works really well. Yeah so if you go to cursive dot aps dot chrome you will be able to spin up cursive and play with it you have to have a touchscreen device you know so that you can be able to utilize it but I think right. I think eventually you know this will hopefully make its way to more platforms. And that'll be a good thing for everybody. Our next and final story in the headlines. Google one at five terabyte of storage plan for twenty four ninety nine usd. You and. i don't know if i need more than two terabytes But but still it made me think how much we have increased old. Hold this because five terabytes of data. Okay used to sound something. When when are we going to and possible. I mean impossible it. Somebody wasn't okay. I am on the on the one forty four megabyte floppy disk. Okay got it. I remember when you could get d'appel of the and now you know we have devices. Coming was one provide of memory on the device. And it's not crazy and you know my my by the has five twelve. So i get it at the five. Zero is known insane. I still look on. I was like yeah. Well i think that the idea is that if you have three terabytes of data in your plan you would have to be on ten terabyte plan right now. Which is you know again..

"Destroy things at least mine and Finding me a couple that doesn't please So this is a real and not only that for a school. This is a machine that makes sense. So why don't try to keep were the last thing i have to say into. This is yes. You want me to use a thin on the web. That is great. If i have a good connection that has been proof in the last eighteen months than not everybody has but to. You're giving me a watered down version of your android platform. I'm not saying to the next up. I'm saying he's a watered down from the water down and that never works. So i don't understand have never understood. Microsoft strategies could say okay. But i don't use ten strategy. So i am not an apologist for microsoft in any way shape or form but i will. I will play devil's advocate here to potentially explain where they're coming from which is to say that they have a lot more data than we do in terms of what's going on in their world and they must have been paying attention to the number of android installs on chromebooks specifically and decided that the installed base was small enough and they saw the usage of people using chromebooks in and the chrome version of those microsoft applications. Reach a threshold that it was like you know what parody feature is enough in the core features that are being utilized that we can drop the android applications. That's kind of where i'm seeing. This is that they were just reading the numbers and said we keep putting more energy into supporting android applications on chromebooks which is which is a form factor. They don't want to support and just decided we already have these. Pwa's i mean. I use the pwa's every day for outlook and other things for other projects. I'm working on. So i'm i'm running. Microsoft products in appear w basically a chrome browser instance and outlook is no different for me. I mean a works the same way. I think outlook should work And i'm not a power outlook user anymore. I used to be. But since i moved to g mail i i really haven't looked back and And so all of the application pieces that i want word outlook even share point. They're all working wonderfully within the browser. And so maybe microsoft's seeing that and said you know what on the chromebook we're just going to force people to use those and not force people but give them that as their option for it and see how they how they move forward especially with the movement toward industry sixty five and wanting to make that ecosystem really browser focused. They're really pushing that that arm. that way. that's my. That's my devil's advocate. A thoughts on why they would make that choice. So i just need to add a disclaimer in that that you're trestle bar for in order to make the disclaimer. It'd be good enough. It's pretty long. That's right like we're we're not talking about power users right. Like if if i'm if i'm a power user i'm going to have a high level device on knocking necessarily have a chromebook. I'm not going to be running. Chrome os and i'm probably vpn in or using some kind of vm ware to remote into a full desktop experience. Which means i already have outlook or word or whatever on my on my desktop that. I'm promoting into so for the student for the person who's really looking to have access to those features on a chromebook. Do i really need the android application. Which again is feature limited comparative to the to the wpa to the pwa. We're talking about application actually has more features On the pwa van in the android application can system. As far as i'm aware and someone can correct me. If i'm wrong here but i feel as though as they get the. Pwa's better as they get. The web implementations better it will then become that much better and better..

"The apps on all of my devices and the now to be able to go to podcasts. Dot google dot com and pick up. Where i left off on a podcast episode on any one of my phones. Or my tablet is fantastic. Is just is a seamless You know experience across them now. And it's great that they're bringing this level of parody to it and hopefully they'll make google podcasts. Pwa at some point. And then i can just pop album the browser and have it as its own application for me to be able to use drag around They have youtube music doing as a pwa. Why wouldn't they have a google podcasts. At some point. Have that same piece as well as being able to download those files locally. Because i might decide that i want to take my chromebook and go off the grid and listen to some podcast episodes while i'm on a country road or something like that where i'm not going to have service. And it would be really nice for them to be able to give give folks that capability other hot gas apps to do that and so they should bring that as well to the system so looking forward to them giving more capabilities within the goal podcasts ecosystem. Google podcast has come a long way since it first launched. And i'm looking forward to seeing more better as we go forward all right. Our last text story is really interesting so tell us what is all about a gustavo so cameras and so crm are now going to be working together. And they're introducing campus the first serum design studio so it is really interesting that they are going to bring everything together on on being able to work this year am and worked at templates and work. Did he sign and they could pretty. S i don't. I don't think that this is actually a partnership between canada and Enzo think this purely only soho. So right yeah. So soho is done here is. They're giving you a whissy wig environment to be able to edit your crm so So rudy exactly what you see is what you get or was c. Wig is the is the term and what they're doing is they. They've actually really made a beautiful. They've made your crm within soho if you use oho.

I take fat over shoveling snow anytime but we are busy. Busy busy busy busy busy. Matter of fact we are way too busy. I would say that is true but every once in a while you gotta make a push and we've got lots of exciting things to talk about today and Starting up some news whole bunch of stuff going on in the news and then we've got a best practice you for you and then Lots going on with blueberry here so lots to talk about and blueberry. We've got a blueberry pro tip. We've got an interview today. With steve webb on of the g. pod yasser's and then of course the question of the week so Mike looks like that podcast. Companies and producers are not real happy with apple premium podcasts at this point or even the podcast standard subscriptions. This apple stool seems to be having issues but What they're talking about here and the article from the verge is a lot of You know bigger you know that are more into big staffs and all that stuff is the workload doubles or triples now. Because you know. Apple's subscription service isn't that reliable and they also want to do it on other platforms so now instead of uploading into one place with rss upload it to five places and it doubles triples. Fog rupel's the workload on the production staff or whoever publishes it. Well there's a lot of Podcasters today that used a competitor podcasting hosts that. Do the same thing you know. Here we go over to their podcast host. And they they write their show notes upload their show and then they go to their dot com and they write their show notes and they're put the player in bed and you know we have some customers that are doing that too. But it's because they're not on wordpress there on another wicks or squarespace or something like that were. There's really no podcasting support per se. And you know so you know. This is where those of you that are listening. They're using the word press. Power press combination is understand the value of being able to you know create upload and publish on your own website now premium content. That's the other thing you can all you can do that with. Wordpress knits right. You can do a premium show with wordpress either member plug in if you want to get more sophisticated then you come over and use our private podcasting product but then that does require you to well. You know at least you only post in one place right. That's the whole thing with this you know. They're saying small teams. You know the verge article was talking about a lot of small teams you know. They're they've don't have enough people to manage all these different various platforms. You know getting it right right. File goes to the right system. Right does the right system and not only that then you have the situation with You know not only apple podcast. Maybe publishing the premium on spotify in you know so it's multiple multiple platforms so it. It is a bit of a challenge for these folks but this is what they signed up for. Some people may be having some success with it but you know in particular apples has been for better word. 'wonky right so hopefully they'll they'll get it ironed out but anyway our best practice talks about that today too as a reminder you can go ahead and do this right now through blueberry without having to go over to apple and publish over there you can have a premium podcast today number one. If you're using our press he can use a member pro- Membership plug in or you can use our private podcasting solution again. We don't collect no money though. That's up to you to collect the money but at least one place to manage it. You have an app. You've got a public gotta. Pwa private web app. You know plenty of places to keep the media be set up to her. It'll work and most podcast apps. You know real podcast app right. It depends on how below security ago. So so there's there's ways to do this Without having to you know post five different places. I still believe podcasters. If they're going to do premium and they have that big an audience support premium content. What why bill that on someone else's property you know giving in your given thirty percent to apple why would you. Why would you do eventually. You'll be given how much whatever percentage spotify if you go at two years are going to start buck the money but you still have to deal for their launch partners stopped. Pay them so again. Build building building on your and your brand you know. Let's talk about media monitors. Yeah built a new podcast monitoring service and see you forget what. It monitors analyzes analyzes all your episodes of thousands of the most popular national podcast download across multiple platforms. So it's some sort of Service that is supposedly a ranks. Things i don't know. I haven't really read through the article. Didn't make a lot of sense to me. But i thought it was worth talking about all right. Well i i have no clue on that one. So when they say they'll launch a podcast monitoring service dinner. They're monitoring my podcasts. Or if they're only monitoring the top one thousand pretty useless for most people. Yes is currently includes national and local radio television cable newspaper digital display advertising and podcasts also is it per advertising advertising monitor no i'm okay that makes sense. Yeah so i thought it was generate that up over the podcast news. So it's it is a monitoring of who's to add you're running wear all right. Good all right cool they. Podcasts are supposed to break a billion dollars this year in advertising. You know we'll see. But when they say podcast monitoring service that sounds like it's something we can all use. But maybe it should. They should have said media monitor lunches podcast advertising monitoring service. Yeah for sure so out liar. Outline podcast festival's been postponed because of the delta variant. They're worried about that so they cancelled until next year. Originally scheduled for september twenty third and twenty fourth. And where was that supposed to be at. I'm not sure where in texas so. Yeah well they probably could. It still had it it. It was being in texas. But who you know. They're probably worried about people wanting to travel. Sure sure so. W w e podcast isn't that's been around a while right. That's the that's the world wrestling entertainment. And also the ringer They're going to be coming. They're going to be becoming spotify exclusives. Okay and So that was that was interesting. They've been around a long time you know. Wwe has at least. and i. and i do remember the ring as well being You know around quite a bit It's a podcast about. I think boxing in wrestling in general but anyway Yeah they're going to be going Full time with the spotify so.

"To do this on desktops and on mobile and and and on tablets and i think this is a really good step for google in terms of their productivity ecosystem. They have keep tasks they've calendar they have emailed. They have now handwriting Capabilities though google keep had handwriting technologies in its technology to begin with it's tech stack. It really wasn't particularly or isn't particularly all that great But what it have is really great. Image optical character recognition. It has the built into it. At all of these really great features that i think the two of those applications bundling cursive into the google keep ecosystem. I think would be really really powerful. And i can't imagine that the google drive team Wants to see cursive and keep Really competing for You know resources programming resources. And otherwise i see this as a long term. Play to bundle those two together. I could be wrong. It could be that chrome os designed to bundle a cursive into its project and be completely becomes a part of chrome os who knows But i'm looking forward to seeing the pow app pwa become a full-fledged app for Things like the ipad For things like android and seeing where that goes. Because i think there could be a lot of opportunity here to be able to just seamlessly take notes from place to place to place as you all know. I am a note taking aficionado You know i love evernote And right now. The handwriting experience in evernote is not the greatest And i'm hoping that fixes itself and gets better over the next few quarters But notwithstanding is always a good reason to have a good competition in the market and And healthy competition in the market. Good competition and i have said this and over and over. Just make everybody's better. So if google can really pull this out and bring it to the i by bringing to the surface and bring it to the other ones now. We are going to get a consistent good experience for handwriting and hopefully is going to allow us to import. Pdf so we can do notes into those via inside of cursive. I think they have a winning recipe. Of course they can kill it before then of twenty twenty one. Let's really hope not.

Coming of Age During the AIDS Crisis
"New york city in the early nineteen eighty s. There was only one place to go if you wanted to do something to help. In the aids crisis an old brick townhouse on west twenty second street in chelsea when i came here volunteer nineteen eighty-four. It was a very different neighborhood. And i was different to. I'm trying to put myself back in my twenty five year. Old self shoes. I'm retracing my steps. And i'm retracing the steps of hundreds of gmac. Volunteers and staff like bill cook. So i'm here with bill cox in front of colonial house. Em which is a bed-and-breakfast on west twenty second street in new york city and it is nearly forty years. Since this was the headquarters of the game health crisis As a plaque on the outside of the building that notes that it's the i was the first permanent home of the game and tells crisis and bill. Maybe you can describe to me what we're looking at Now we're looking at a beautiful breakfast. That has window boxes flowers beautiful ironwork and it bears no relation to what it was like when i volunteer here. I mean the street was nothing like it is today so it was a lot of working class people and for people living in houses world houses that have been broken up that were single family homes in the nineteenth century. Broken up into single-room-occupancy. With bathroom a bathroom on the hall. That's right. there was a bathroom down the hall. It was a run down. Old ramshackle buildings. So i would i pass by here. I don't know how many times because i was frightened really to go to work to volunteer. I didn't know what i would do. I didn't know if i had any qualifications. I didn't know what what i would find. Really sort of terrified. And i didn't know whether who i would be seeing what i be seeing people people with as pwa's which of course that's what we refer to. When waste i started volunteering. So finally i worked up my courage. You know if. I'm not gonna do it. Who's gonna do

"Modern groups have much more than that you can share files. It's your photos and you know you can have a shared database of things like you know contact information. I find still very useful. The i looked at many of these Again the one that i personally ended up settling on was called groups dot i o. And they've got great functionality and they've got a free version that's got some very basic stuff and you can pay to have group expanded to even more feature so check them out groups dot io Mailing list it'll do that for you for free now. As far as youtube most people probably consume stuff off. Youtube is supposed to you know sharing content there. But if you do you might look at Video via mio and finally a couple of kabore android operating system. This is tough. I mean if you go android device unless you're really technical you can have a hard time replacing the operating system though there are there are some replacements lineage os. I have never done it. I don't how hard it is to do. But i know people who have done it Basically replace the operating system on their phone your android or you could try something like the lebron five from peres which is which was one of the big prizes. We gave away and the two hundred podcast which was built from the ground up hardware and software to be privacy respecting otherwise. Just get an iphone. Apple's not perfect but there are way better when it comes to privacy than then. Google is and finally just round out. The list of google. Hangouts isn't really terribly popular but in terms of messaging apps like whatsapp again. I would just go with. I would go a signal. It's great it runs on iphones and android and mac and pc. It's very simple to set up. And they collect like zero data zero. If you look at their. I think actually if you look at their privacy report. I think the only thing that collect is your phone number and they of use that to bypass having to know about any of your contactless basically you find other people in signal by looking for their phone number. And this is not information that whatsapp itself Storage to the best of my knowledge other than an old. I guess they started. Get your out. But they don't story like your friends list that's actually purely local to you and just look your current contact us. Do you have any of those contacts. Also have single so there you go my not exhaustive but exhausting list of google replacements. And those are my tips of the week in honor of data. Privacy day..

"So one of the elephants in the room a lot of times with these awards. And it's nobody's fall. There's always a lot of complaining. Well it's it's pediatrics. Headier am l. eddy. Listen they didn't run. Shows the second half of the year and again it days award made that you you mentioned some east coast north carolina to the west coast north carolina. These awards. just. I mean every area of the carolinas represented this year. I think that's really really think phenomenal. Man is a testament to your work. And what you've done over the last couple years appreciate heat and you know there. There's been a lot of growing pains and trying to. I will say get this process right but at least in terms of trying to perfect what we do We've always tried to be as inclusive as possible and working with the pale in the past but Baby this is finally shit. Some light on. We really need to be doing here But as you said things typically they tended to gravitate towards the beer promotions but This year as you said we've got exposure from all corners of the place at a great thing because i don't have problem watching wrestling wrestling. Bunny day of the week so To be able to see more great thing so before we get into these last These last four categories Let me say this. If you are a wrestler listed this enlisted again. we haven't been chabot. had been some of these nominees. we have not heard of There's this thing called facebook. You can share your stuff. He might say well. We're not video in our shows. What are you doing. What are you doing with x caliber Is a new promotion. They decide their. I show up in a lincoln at the dome but they're lake and They they posted the show in the group. Cintas results sin results in so at the end in. Twenty twenty one. I can look on here. And i can say okay. This guy wrestled forty two matches at these promotions or hey. This person only worked three matches all year. They probably don't need to be award. Sin results host your videos. Get the word out there. Don't put you know there's nineteen. Let me get home a soapbox. There's nineteen carolina wrestling roots of gay. There's only one that gives out the pwa's and that's the carolinas professional wrestling or groups. Punch your stuff in there. Plus had the other carolina. Groups is steph from georgia. New jersey tennessee ran over al. It's the truth the because i've said this to couple of people here within the past year if you're not recording your material in two thousand and twenty with cell phones and everything else has got a camera attached. There's no reason for you to be involved in the business in my opinion because if you are not at least taken the opportunity to do film study to watch your own stuff. And say hey. I needed to tighten appear there in whatever else. There's all kind of learning opportunities and you're missing that by not recording things So you definitely need to. If you're not doing it already. Get you cheat little camera which your cellphone a stay in. Do something to record your matches at your concept. Because it'll be worth something at some point right. What used to be in south carolina with athletic commission. You had to record your shit exactly. You had to turn the tape So that's not the case anymore Hey let's let's talk about rising star of the year a category. I'm very excited for this. You know this may be my favorite category of any of them because it shows again the depth of talent. We have here in the fact that we've got a pretty full covered as it stands Had a lot of good talent in here this year. Especially we'll start off with jacob arba chain..
Amazon Luna cloud gaming service launches with support for iOS
"At the top of show that Amazon got around with Apple App Store with apples help. Let us explain we mentioned yesterday that Amazon launched a game streaming system called Luna and we have a few more details about how that works on. IOS as we told you yesterday. It comes through the browser Luna will be a progressive web app or pwa we've told you about those before it means you can install an icon off Luna on your home screen on iOS run it separately from the rest of your browser. You're not going to see your other tabs or anything. It'll act like its own app, and technically it could even work offline. But since I bought it online game streaming service, that's not really a feature that applies here. It can act pretty much like an app, but without being subject to Apple's App Store rules because it's really just a very robust website that you're saying. Going to your home screen in Apple's recent streaming game guidelines. Apple actually wrote quote. Of course, there is always the open internet and web browser apps to reach all users outside of the App Store. They pointed at that and they said you could just do that if you wanted to an Amazon said, okay, I guess we want to Luna head of engineering and Technology George sip elitists who works for Amazon package said that Amazon worked with Apple's Safari team to make sure quote some of the things that weren't there are there and that allowed us to do kind of get where we are today. So they not only cooperated with Apple Apple Safari team apparently like added some functionality for them with their Progressive web apps you'd think Apple was like try to force them into the App Store know they didn't Amazon also says they're working with apple on a game app and we'll ship one when quote we can come up with a good experience. So Amazon saying like those new guidelines about the native apps didn't really work with us yet, but we're still working we're talking dog. Apple we're not suing them like epic has The Verge is Sean Hollister. Also wonders when Google and video Microsoft might follow suit Google runs stadia in Chrome already Nvidia GeForce need webrtc version for the Chromebook and a Sean points out. Yes. There are issues to web apps like controller support questions lack of all the optimizations you can do on a native app. And of course cos if you're running a progressive web app, it has to run on webkit. You don't get a choice of browser, but Amazon was able to make it work by working with Apple.
Apple and Google are fighting over the future of the web
"Apple, Google, or who the biggest players in technology and fundamentally different ways of seeing where the Internet is going, and whoever wins out in this big conflict may have a huge impact on how we experienced the web broader. Chang and this is your charge. To break this down is see nets, reporter and resident giant Brain Stephen Shanklin welcome shank high, so Google and apple been rivals on many different levels for for many years. At what is this new battlefront? Look like well. This is basically a disagreement or a difference of opinion about where the web should go, and what the right balance is between Web APPS that run on the web in native APPs deployed into all the programming interfaces you'll see on an iphone or on windows or on Android so it's web versus native. Tunnel little bit about their respective positions. What's really informing? Why they're taking the positions, they are well. Google was born on the web and it is a huge fan of the web, and it's chrome. Browser dominates usage of the web so as you might expect. It's really a big fan of the web improving what the web can do. Make it as interactive as possible. Make It. As easy as possible to build advanced Web APPs that can do a lot of different things, basically Web APPs that powerful is native APPs apple on the other hand. It's obviously hugely successful with its iphone. In one of the reasons that's been successful as all the native APPs that run on the iphone and of course, apple gets a lot of money, not just from selling iphones, but also from taking its cut of. The fees that developers have to pay. Somebody buys something through Apple's APPs store, so apple is not. It doesn't disliked the web, but it has a bigger affinity for native APPs than Google does yes. Oh I use apps obviously on my phone. I browse the Internet to. Why should I care about this dispute? What really this boils down to sort of a difference of philosophy? Are you more of a fan of an open computing platform like the web or you more a fan of native APPs so that? That openness has a lot of advantages. If you decide to dump your windows laptop and moved to an IPAD, then that's going to be easier if the web is really at the center of your experience. If you're somebody who uses a lot of native APPS, you might like those on your iphone, but that might make it hard to switch to Android, because you're kind of walked into the apple iphone APPs on the other hand. Native APPs often are a lot more responsive a lot more powerful so. Baked often offering a better user experience, so it's about a difference in philosophy. What's more important to you? Each side certainly has its advantages and disadvantages. Yeah, one one way Google's trying China address this with their Web APPs. Is Something called progressive? Web APPs, which which are more fully featured talk about that. What what are what are they look like? And would we actually see some these progressive web? APPS pop up. Are here today Google? Helped coined the term and its aggressively pushing a bunch of technology that makes Progressive Web APPs better PWA's. You'll see that a lot in a tech circles, so yes as you said it's basically more of a packaged web. APP So right now you typically use your browser open A website do what you need to do on the website. If you're using progressive web APP, you might prompt that says hey. Do you want to save this to your home screen? Do you WanNa? Say this year start menu, and then you can save that as an APP you commend launched later without having to go through the browser, their wad of different features in Progressive Web. APPS that make them work faster. Make them work offline and generally improve the experience compared to a native APP. These are gradually. Increasing in power utility, there are a lot of companies like Uber in twitter and starbucks that have that liked them and have had pretty good success with them, so they're definitely increasing in importance I guess you can say it's basically the latest phase in improving the web web used to be this foundation for static documents studied with hyper links, and it got gradually more and more Interactive Progressive Web APPs the latest vanguard of that interactivity. Fred to a you set up. Up these two sides pretty nicely. What which side has more support backing? It depends on who you're asking about so web developers love power. They love features, and they love chrome, so the web developers no question they really like Google way of thinking in a lot of them. Don't like apples. Speed of improving its safari browser one of the big issues is that on iphones and IPADS? Safari is obviously not just the default browser, but also even if you're using chrome. It's apple's safari technology, so apple really controls. What's what goes on on an IPHONE or an IPAD? So the web developers really bristle about that. If you're talking about the average user Heidel really think most people know the difference mostly at this stage. If you're developing markets, places that don't have a many powerful devices, don't have very fast networks often, the web has a lot more urban advantage sometimes wetbacks to be much smaller and faster and easier to use than a native where you have to go through an APP store. Download a big head, the APP yet in. Terms of WHO's likely to win. Is there any kind of indication or still still too early I? Don't think either side is going to vanquish the other. I think the web is pretty healthy in is going to continue to be so I think native. APPS are not going to die, even for example, twitter is a fan, but if you load the twitter mobile, APP in some places, it'll say hey, have you? You tried our twitter native APP so it's not it's not really clear that one side of the other is going to actually prevail what the big question is which way it's going to tilt in the future and bats kind of uncertain what it looks to me at this stage is that the web developers and some people actually use the web like these advanced features, and there's pressure on apple two in. The features it builds into safari. Safaris team is growing. Apple has been adding some of these features. If not always as fast as Google would like also, there are a lot of allies that Google has like Intel and Microsoft, which is a very big powerful. Ally that are pushing this web direction so I think the web will steadily get more powerful, but native apps are certainly not going away. Okay, let me in the way you describe it with between absent browsers I think for a lot of folks. I tend to use more APPs on my phone. The expect you said the experiences, a bit more fully fleshed out likewise when I'm on my computer, I tend to use my browser a lot more rather than apps unless there's really specific program like. Is it just? Is it a matter of? Being a phone, the desktop experience, or has that plane the argument? There's definitely a difference between what happens on your laptop in what happens on your phone browsing on your phone? Even though apple actually helped pioneer mobile browsers with the first iphone way back in two thousand seven. It still is not as good as a native APP generally speaking. So that initial disadvantage I think really has persisted. A lot of people were trained to look for APPS in the APP store, not go to mobile websites that were broken or didn't work well or limited or just said for example you go to the yelp website, it says install the YELP APP. So you know there are a lot of disincentives to using the mobile web. Google's trying to reduce those, but there's still a huge gap then when you compare it to a laptop where a lot of people can just live in a web browser. Maybe they need photoshop or Microsoft Word or some other. Video or photo editor running on their laptop, but mostly the web is how a lot of us can get worked on the laptop. That dynamic I think. It's changing I think the web is getting more powerful on phones, but it's not clear to me that it's getting so much more powerful that it's really going to be the primary way we interact on our phones. I think especially for the APPS that you use a lot one to ten twenty times a day. Those are probably going to be native APPS for most people. I'm just trying to get a sense for our listeners. What what this actually means, if one side wins like what what is Apple's vision of the future look like versus Google's vision with feature well I think way it. Shakes out, it's not so much that one side of the other is going to win, it's that it's going to tilt one way or the other and I think in the apple do more priority on native apps spend more time in walled gardens silos I'm not sure what the right term is exactly, but basically more time on one companies platform where it's harder to switch out of that email service in that music streaming service in. In that collection of APPs The web vision. It's a bit more open loosey-goosey. You might have to do more vetting yourself. Is this service worth my money? Is this email service safe to use? So it's there's less hand holding, but it's more open so kind of a different one is one is arguably easier on the customer, but if you do want to make changes or control your destiny, it gets a bit harder. Shack this is the first in a series looking at this issue. What what else you have on tap this week are also gonna be looking at some of these security. Implications of Web APPs the more power you give to the web, the more the attack surface gets bigger, the more ways there are for a hackers to attack your browser and your entire phone and laptop, and we're going to be looking specifically at twitter, which as a pretty interesting story about why it made the choices it did. Did with its own web APP, so it's sort of a a look at how it sees the world. Obviously, twitter is a pretty important application right now as a native APP and web APP. We thought there'd be interesting example to look into their decision. Great thanks for joining me.
