[Scaling for Growth]

The other day I shared a multi-step process to scaling. After thinking about the short format of twitter, I added these additional 5 steps below.

#scaling #growth

Establish the Culture:
-Define the #values, #goals, and expectations for the team and the organization as a whole.
-Identify the key characteristics you want in new team members, such as experience, education, and personality traits.

Step 2: Hire the Right People:
-Create job descriptions that clearly outline the duties and requirements for each position.
-Use a variety of methods to attract potential candidates, including job fairs, employee referrals, and online job postings.

Layer 2 scaling solutions are a way to increase the scalability and throughput of blockchain networks like Ethereum, by processing transactions off-chain.

#layer2 #scaling #blockchain #OptimisticRollup #ZK-Rollups #Sidechains #Validium
1/ One popular Layer 2 scaling solution is #OptimisticRollup, which allows for multiple transactions to be bundled and processed together off-chain and then only the final result is posted to the main chain.

@arbitrum @optimismFND @bobanetwork @MetisDAO 2/ Another solution is ZK-Rollups, which uses zero-knowledge proof to bundle multiple transactions together while maintaining the privacy of the transaction data.

In the last 7 days, the on-chain activity of #Optimism is increased by 21% and surpassed #Arbitrum!

Is this a surprise? Of course not!

Let's review other KPIs to get a better projection of #Optimism's growth!

#Scaling #Ethereum $OP

One of the core metrics of evaluating on-chain activity is the number of transactions that take place in a certain period of time.

As we can see here, the number of transactions is almost constantly rising since October!

The number of transactions may be increasing but how about the number of active addresses?

We can clearly see the same upwards trend in transacting addresses too!👀

Now we understand that more and more people are joining the #Optimism ecosystem and using the chain.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

I promise a thread 🧵when the paper gets accepted. It's about the thermodynamics of traffic flow near the critical density.

Next up is to show that the entropy of an urban network is the travel time!

The paper below by @jianxi_gao @LouisShekhtman and others reveals macroscopic emergent behavior in the Beijing urban network consistent with self-organized criticality. This changes everything.…

Can computational methods assess the #sentiment of complex texts? In an article with my fabulous colleagues from the @WZB_Berlin, @unipotsdam @LMU_Muenchen @JungeAkademie, we answer this question by applying #dictionary and #scaling methods on a sample of #literature reviews🧵
The article is also a practical #guide to help researchers select an appropriate #method and degree of preprocessing for their own data. Our #corpus consisted of 6.041 summaries of reviews of contemporary German #literature acquired from @perlentaucher00 (2/9)
The linguistic #complexity of #literature reviews differ from other texts with regard to their #language-- ambiguity, irony, metaphors, etc.-- are comparatively difficult to capture with #computational approaches. So how did our different methods fare? (3/9)

1/n 🧵 ICYMI "Scaling of Hunter-Gatherer Camp Size and Human Sociality"

New paper (@UChicagoPress) led by José Lobo (@ASU) & co-authored by a team incl. SFI's @BettencourtLuis (@miurbanchicago) & Scott Ortman (@CUBoulder), result of an SFI working group:… Image
This new research deploys #ScalingLaw insights to understand the population-density driven transition from temporary hunter-gatherer settlements to permanent sedentary city life.

Previous research on the impact of densification on the transition into city life has yielded conflicting results, some suggesting that hunter-gatherer groups actually thin out as they scale. (In what ways might this reflect transitions in the scaling of microbial organisms?) Image

🧵 THREAD N°25 : les rollups

Après le thread tranquille d'hier, retour aux sujets techniques avec le thread du jour sur les #rollups, une méthode qui permet d'accélérer les échanges sur une blockchain 👇
1/ Avant de lire ce thread, je vous recommande de lire celui-ci sur les solutions de #scaling pour bien comprendre les enjeux des rollups.
2/ En quelques mots, les #rollups sont une solution qui permet d'effectuer 10, 100, 1000 transactions en une seule transaction, multipliant de fait par 10, 100, 1000 la vitesse du réseau.

1/ @avalancheavax is a highly customizable #Layer0 that enables the development of an infinite number of #blockchains on top.

It can support the adoption of #EVM for any custom VM that implements the innovative #AVAX consensus. Image
2/ The #AVAX #protocol has the only #consensus capable of #scaling the active validator list while maintaining high transaction performance, sub-second finality, and unmatched #decentralization.

It is composed of four mechanisms: Slush, Snowflake ❄️, Snowball, and Avalanche
3/ #Avalanche #Consensus uses “repeated random subsampling” to vote: when a validator #node receives a transaction, it randomly queries other validators until the network achieves consensus.

X-Chain, C-Chain, and Platform Chain are 3 #blockchains making the Primary Network Image

We're considering licensing our @nextjs @sanity_io @tailwindcss @typescript engine to other businesses.

Web devs and agencies, would you ever consider using a licensed website engine?

Not too dissimilar to what @divjoy does!

Start projects with the hard stuff done already.
The engine has a cli to quickly build pages, modules, dialogs etc.

We scaffold the whole process from frontend module to Sanity data model and storybook demo.

Our pages are all modular so adding a new module to the library makes it available across the CMS for all pages.
Pages are linked up and routed, they are infinitely nestable and a sitemap is auto generated as you go.

Pages are rebuilt by next without any manual deployments.

All pages have live preview by default.

Buttons are setup to internally link to any pages by name, so no 404s.

You're struggling to scale your e-commerce #operations to a new level? Here are 5 easy ways on how to #scale horizontally👇🏻

THREAD 🧵 (1/6)
1️⃣ Foreign markets.

Chances are, that you're running your operations mainly in the United States of America. Think outside of the box. The world is big enough for you to scale in #untappedmarkets such as DACH, NORDIC, BENELUX, etc.

2️⃣ Foreign languages.

Not only should you consider #scaling in untapped markets as previously mentioned but you should also adapt to the local language. Tested this several times and it will significantly boost your #CVR and just overall performance-driven #KPIs.

This week at SFI: "#Complexity and the Structure of #Music: Universal Features and Evolutionary Perspectives Across Cultures", an #interdisciplinary working group assembled to explore new frameworks for understanding music. Stay tuned for highlights!…
"Every pitch class set is connected to every other pitch class set."

– @mbnUNT, co-organizer of this week's #musicology working group, presents on how to understand the #topology of #harmonic structures in music with #network diagrams (e.g. Pic 4 with #JSBach's BWV 66):
Once you represent a musical composition as a network, it is possible to examine the evolutionary dynamics of its harmonic content over time, as explained by @mbnUNT in his opening talk for this week's SFI #musicology working group.

(Ironically, this #Beethoven is #scalefree:)

@xenditco 1/ When do you start scaling? When you have Product Market Fit. What does PM Fit "feel" like? Imagine someone took 2 fingers, stuck them in your nostrils, and yanked hard, upwards. That's demand pull! HT @zealoustiger for this pic
2/ On the topic of scaling, we discussed life pre-scaling (optimize your company activities around experimentation pace) and post-scaling (optimize your company around the ability to grow).

Remember how the Software Industry mis-read one paper and got stuck with an "implementation described above [that] is risky and invites failure."
Yup, that was #Waterfall. We might have seen some sense with #agile and now we risk to undermine this again with #scaling nonsense
Turns out plenty has already been written on the pitfalls of scaling (yup, already in the 70's, 80's, 90's....) and there are some great books and papers that lay it out explicitly and bluntly. Some of these papers supposedly know by the industry.
If there is one paper you should read, it is "How Do Committees Invent?" by @conways_law.
It's not just the origin of "Conways Law", it's also packed with compelling observations about scaling and legacy systems we're doomed to write.
Read it today.…
