Want to thank @Bindestriche for the retweet. Inspired the need to vent my thoughts in this🧵
An article on Peter #Thiel & his vision, to me a sign: we need to reclaim our #future & not let #techgurus take over.
Let’s start to look at our daily routines: fast pace thru … 1/21
#digital tools for working, shopping, researching, studying. communicating & more, made possible by mostly #SiliconValley’s tech companies for a “convenient” life. And I wonder if this is really the concept of the #goodlife that I dreamed of in my childhood? …2/21
..& will it be favored by unborn generations? It seems we are letting a certain type of tech vision take over.
Let me try to look behind that future that seems to be favored now:

#PSX losing charm every passing day? Activity at the bourse says so…

Long 🧵, hopefully an interesting one.

With #PSX being in existence for a long time now, 🇵🇰 hasn’t really seen a pick-up in #investor base – or say has been seeing a downfall.

1/n
While in we are aware of lack of interest in equities, I did some working on turnover in PSX. It’s a disappointing one (see chart below). #PSX is trading $45mn p/d on avg. these days – just a notch above what we used to trade back in the end of 1990s. Yes, let that sink in.

2/n
While this is saddening, this shd be questioned! #Tech has picked up which shd hv made investors’ access easier; businesses are making money, thus attract investors; both buy & sell side of capital markets hv grown in size. Yet why have we only fallen down rather grow?

1/5 Price and value are like cousins that hang out together *most* of the time. Value is honest and #PriceIsALiar. This is the true model I use to assess #bitcoin value. It is a little more complicated than simply v=n*(n-1)/2.
2/ Metcalfe's law is predictive of #bitcoin price. An example of this was posted at "Using Metcalfe’s Law To Forecast Digital Asset Returns" cane-island.digital/research-notes
3/ There is more to testing Metcalfe's law than calculating n*(n-1)/2 and comparing the result to price. In fact, the calculation is more nuanced than that and involves other variables. Metcalfe grouped these effects into a term called "Affinity."

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

🔴 LIVE: @rachelsibande joins @CLEARAA1's Talitha Hlaka, @The_DSD's Dez Jason, and @giz_gmbh #FAIRForward's Mark Irura as they discuss #ResponsibleDataUse for #DataGovernance and #MEL in times of unprecedented volumes of #DigitalData and new #DataLaws 👉 crs-org.zoom.us/j/81523617808
Dez Jason kicks things off by sharing @MERLTech's #ResponsibleData in #MonitoringAndEvaluation (#RDiME) #ME and #data life cycles, at every stage of which responsible #DataGovernance is considered key: im-portal.org/help-library/r…
Mark Irura notes the importance of using #data to improve governance but he emphasizes that communities need to know how their data is being used so they can protect their #privacy.

However, choosing not to share your data should NOT prevent you from participating in government!

How the #DigitalDevelopment community thinks about sharing #information, #resources, and #data and partners to advance #DigitalTransformation will be key to creating #impact from our efforts and ensuring country #governments can replicate them to better serve their #citizens.
DIAL thinks about #partnerships in everything it does—in fact, were founded in 2015 by a partnership of #global #donors seeking to connect incredibly promising #DigitalDevelopment efforts that had failed to achieve #scale.

Gifts cannot be priced.
#Governments that offer #dole as part of the economic programs are akin to such gifts.
By adding a price ticket to every incentive awarded as a gift, a lot of waste can be screened and saved.
Leads to better management of public financial resources!
This principle of the national minimum is a political economic gift that can bankrupt a sovereign nation and completely distort its national psyche and narrative.
Most of the welfare capitalist countries are suffering from its accentuated curse since the end of World War 2.

Why #futures are poison for any asset and definitely for #gold, #silver and #Bitcoin

Tweet storm :
Since many #commodities have limited elasticity in supply, the #futures markets - and specially those that don’t require settlement in the underlying asset - are there to create artificial, in principle unlimited supply.
They are the main and key instrument for controlling the price of an asset by pumping up virtual supply of an asset in amounts that simply don’t exist in reality.

SPEAKING THE UNSPEAKABLE

I despair of being free of the coronavirus.

Not because we lack the tech, but because we lack the will.

Things which make no sense to me, things which seem cruel or outright monstrous and I am forced to ask: why?

Welcome to #SpeakingTheUnspeakable.
• The #pandemic hasn't ended.

#Governments, due to corporate pressures, are forcing people back to work.

• You may be #vaccinated, but you are NOT safe.

• The #coronavirus will last longer, cost more & kill millions more people worldwide.
@FoxNews's #disinformation efforts have proven to be more effective at misleading people than our government has been at leading them.

• Unchecked #misinformation and #socialmedia have been integral to developing the failed rhetoric on the vaccination effort.

With new variants/waves & reimposition of restrictions in some regions, governments around the world are calling for a careful assessment of the effectiveness of the adopted #Covid19 #fiscal measures before they embark on further easing or tailoring of measures 2/n
The #Covid19 pandemic led to a sharp tightening of global #financial conditions at the acute phase of the crisis and has inflicted large economic losses across the world (see Figure below) ... 3/n Image

Yesterday, after a long discussion with a close family member who is a US MD phd, we agreed that with world's best #contagion models (% masks & social interaction) available in world today, the covid take-off could at best have been predicted 7 to 10 days before it exploded...2/
2/covid #Covid Pragmatic suggestion is to ban all #Social gatherings of > 7-10 people (indoors & outdoors), till curve turns down, but don't stop economic activity (w cumplusory masking, distancing). Once curve flattens, outdoor gathering restrictions can be eased with masking

@V5M1000 UN/WEF is building its own empire to replace a country power, controls & laws (mirroring the EU framework)

governance (templated agenda2030) placed over industry / sectors, creates global future council another layer of more govt (total govt = communism, built on collectivism)
@V5M1000 1. What UN/WEF is doing is implementating communism worldwide, getting everyone to buy into their communist collectivist agenda as being the saviour of mankind post-covid & silently trying to convert everyone to a communistic agenda
@V5M1000 2. Arnold J Toynbee "I will repeat that we're at present working, discreetly with our might, to wrest this mysterious political force called #sovereignty out of the clutches of the local national states of our world, we're denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands" ?

How did the #farmers go from desperately wanting to sell land, to protesting against selling #land? And more importantly, how is India’s Constitution the culprit here? A #Thread, from our recent #hippoBrain conversation with @srajagopalan <1/29>

#threadstorytime #FarmersProtest
In 1950, when #India became a republic, one of the major things on the agenda was land reform. Understandable, because India was incredibly poor. ~95% were working in Agriculture. <2/29>

#landreform #FarmersProtest
Most of them were not land owners; only 1-2% of the people working in Agriculture were land owners. So there was a push towards making this a more equitable system. Esp since the land was granted to zamindars due to on privileges given by the East India Company, etc. <3/29>

This is going to be one of my most important threads.

On Oct 24 2020 we analyzed the Rockefeller Foundation "Message Handbook - #Covid19 Testing & #Tracing, Sept 2020".

This thread examines the #UN [Share] Verified Guide to COVID-19 #Vaccine Communications (released Nov 18). Image
Before we begin, we need to understand who/what [Share] Verified is. Self-described as "the biggest team the world has ever seen" Verified is #Purpose PR firm (sister org of #Avaaz) partnered w/ #UN, #Luminate (#Omidyar) & #Ikea. Image
[Share] Verified "Collaborators" include #WorldBank, #Facebook, #Twitter, #TikTok, etc.

Can't agree more about most #DAO projects are like countries with parliaments but without the relevant executive #government @verbine Would love to incorporate an executive structure to Digital Native Organizations #DNO on #Autonomy Network. Thread here 👇👇👇
For the success of Community owned organizations and Digital companies there is a need for a strong executive team while I also feel a need for a strong governance council. #token #governance models #cryptonetworks
To solve some of the short comings of #DAO models we are proposing a model of Digital Native Organizations(DNO) with

1. Digital Ownership
2. Governance with decentralization as a range rather than a state
3. Token incentives for all stakeholders
