Two of my favorite people collided worlds when @netw3rk read @econoar 's tweet about the @NBA's @SDinwiddie_25's tokenizing his contract on #Ethereum on the Emmy Award Winning #nbadesktop @ringernba.

What a time to be alive!

Thread 1/many
The great @ReformedBroker got the details mostly right, but oversold risk involved for easy Blockchain laughs. @SDinwiddie_25 is turning his contract into a bond, taking the money raised up front, and then paying those who hold the tokens a 2.5% rate until he repays principal.
This has been done before. #DavidBowie (EVER HEARD OF HIM???!!??) did this in the 90's & was met skeptically but ended up being a solid and memorable investment. The ambit of what Bowie wanted to do was much lower than what @SDinwiddie_25's end goals are.

El 8 enero 1947 nacía David Bowie. En este hilo, voy a desvelar todos los secretos de la canción q interpretó junto a Freddie Mercury: "Under Pressure" considerada la mejor línea de bajo de la historia. Desde los cielos, #Queen #FreddieMercury #DavidBowie #Bowie #UnderPressure
En julio de 1981, Queen se encontraba grabando el álbum "Hot Space" en los Estudios Mountain (Montreux - Suiza). En esta localidad no sólo Freddie tenía una residencia, sino q David Bowie se había mudado tb a la zona del Cantón de Vaud. Roger Taylor era amigo de Bowie y le pidió
q se acercara un día x el estudio de grabación a hacerles una visita. Ese día llegó, y sugirieron la idea de hacer una canción juntos. No había tiempo material para crear un tema desde cero, así q mostraron a Bowie alguna maqueta (demo) de las sesiones de "Hot Space". Una de las

So I'm still processing my thoughts about The #CurrentWar.

My immediate reaction upon leaving the theater: This film is custom-made for a crossover between @SocHistTech and History at the Movies (#HATM).

A few additional thoughts: The movie makes it very clear that the #CurrentWar was between Edison & Westinghouse.

Yes, Tesla is there too (more on him in a moment), but the system-builders (cf. Hughes) are front and center.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see Mary Stillwell Edison and Marguerite Erskine Walker Westinghouse featured prominently in the film. The latter is actually referred to as George's wife & business partner.

My all-time favorite #Christmas song. The message is a beautiful one:
#DavidBowie #BingCrosby #LittleDrummerBoy

"Peace on earth, can it be
Years from now, perhaps we'll see
See the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again...
"Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can..

Dunque. Un'oretta fa ho preso il #786 davanti al San Camillo, ovviamente pieno di ragazzini appena usciti da scuola. Tra di loro, una ragazzina trans che chiacchierava con delle compagne. Mi sono ritrovata a fissarla - sì, lo so che è da maleducati, ma c'era un motivo preciso:...
...la ragazzina somigliava un sacco a #DavidBowie, periodo berlinese. Avete presente quant'era figo #Bowie nel 1977? Ecco, esattamente.
Avrei voluto dirglielo («somigli un sacco a Bowie nel periodo berlinese!»), ma non l'ho fatto. Perché?
Perché ho cominciato a pensare: non è mica tanto normale che una persona sconosciuta si avvicini per dirti «somigli un sacco a #Bowie nel periodo berlinese!», magari evitiamo l'effetto #creepyoldlady (ché, insomma, ci ho un'età. Per gli adolescenti sono 'na vecchia.)...

Puisque les langues se délient pour faire passer aux agresseurs un sale quart d’heure, j’aimerais lister ici les hommes célèbres qui ont été accusés ou condamnés en raison de violences sexuelles qu’ils ont vraisemblablement commises.
