Google a été introduite en bourse le 19 août 2004 au prix de $85. Si vous aviez acheté une action au prix d’introduction (et participé passivement à toutes les opérations sur titre proposées entre temps), votre investissement vaudrait aujourd’hui $2 568.2. #Thread
Avec un rendement annuel de plus de 24%, ça aurait probablement été le meilleur investissement de votre vie et il est plus que probable qu’à l’image des autres actionnaires de Google (devenue Alphabet) vous seriez très content de la façon dont vous avez été traité.
Mais il y a un hic, un petit détail qui va plonger notre ami @AQuatennens dans des abîmes de perplexité : Alphabet n’a jamais payé le moindre dividende à ses actionnaires.

Rien, nada, zéro, que dalle, que pouic, que tchi : pas le moindre centime.

#NC Vous trouvez l'auto-confinement difficile en France ? Essayez le confinement strict bricolé à la Calédonienne, vous ne sera pas déçu. Je pense que des gens vont péter les plombs avant 14 jours et j'aimerais bien savoir si Thierry Santa a été confiné dans les mêmes conditions.
Le trou sanitaire le plus flagrant de ce théâtre est que c'est aux proches de récupérer le linge et le laver. Il suffira d'un cas de COVID19 pour qu'il se répande. Le reste c'est service minimum et la bouffe SNCF c'est de la gastronomie en comparaison.
Les volontaires, qui assurent en gros l'intégralité du service à la place des hôteliers, font ce qu'ils peuvent et essuient les plâtres avec nous (nous étions dans le 1e vol de rapatriés). Je croise les doigts avec eux pour que ça fonctionne mais je n'ai pas confiance.

Depuis des semaines, des collègues de primaire, collège ou lycée ne trouvant aucun soutien dans leur hiérarchie ou écho dans le presse m'envoient des témoignages sur les aberrations qu'ils vivent au quotidien. Voici un fil regroupant ce que je reçois.
Inégalités entre les candidats pour les E3C, les nouvelles épreuves du bac
"Anonymat" des candidats. Sans aller jusque là, on peut très bien corriger des élèves que nous avons eu les années précédentes...

I created the first 'Collateral Swap': Swapping the underlying collateral in a @MakerDAO Vault/CDP with another asset, using @AaveAave 's flash loan feature and @UniswapExchange for collateral conversion, all in one transaction w/o liquidation. 😇

#DeFi #composability #ethereum
Use case: swap the underlying collateral of a debt position for a better performing asset, without needing to payback the loan / lose your DAI position(s)
Example: if ETH price ⬇️, BAT price ⏫, then it's safer to have your collateral in BAT.

There's probably an arbitrage use case as well ...🤔

1/ As someone trading small positions in ETH, BTC derivatives, I've been fascinated by @SetProtocol + @tokensets.

Today, I finally went into beast mode to fully understand this #DeFi magic!

I am convinced most do not understand Set. So here's my dumb explanation in a thread.
2/ Despite all the brilliant peeps building on #Ethereum, most never do more than HODL ETH. While many dollar-cost-average into ETH, they fail to put their ETH to work.

The most obvious example of "money put to work" is using
@compoundfinance to earn interest, lending ETH, DAI
3/ Now, if you've never traded, all you need to know is less than 1% of FT traders are profitable. If you trust that common stat, you only need to know that many successful traders use bots.

Something like 70-80% of daily trade volume in crypto markets is estimated to be bots.

Who's ready for a thread on #library, #KO, and #LCSH history?

Let's examine a moment in American history where academic libraries were in transition to @librarycongress classification. #critcat #critlib #histlibrary
Though LCC started around 1900, major libraries took time to move over to the "new" system. By 1927 @ALALibrary knew they needed to figure out what was happening, and commissioned Margaret Mann to research and write a book on the use and classification of books in LCC.
@ALALibrary of course, not to be off brand from the 1920's referred to Mann in the patriarchal sense as "Miss Mann", despite, y'know, the fact that she was an associate professor @usmi

I like to consider myself one of the 1%. Not the one percent of the rich in financial terms but onepercent of the people over 65 Who didn’t act, think , or behave in the stereotypical manner of my age group!

Yet my “age” has afforded me an opportunity to learn few have enjoyed.
For example I encourage investment in 2 things:

1/ your mind! Learning is important for a plethora of reasons: a) the physical health of your brain thus helping stave off dementia; b) we can lose our wealth, family, friends etc but no one can take our knowledge from us.
2/ put you money no matter how little/small into things that’ll appreciate &/or earn more money AND to do it as early as possible in your life. Even at my age a penny saved is a penny earned! Put you money in things that inconvenience you or take time to get to - curb impulses.

This #EarthDay, I want to talk about my journey toward finding my voice in the environmental/climate movement. Cause, in the words of Langston Hughes, it ain’t been no crystal stair.
Ever since I got involved in the environmental space 5 years ago, it became real clear real fast why the movement was so anemic. Simply put, the movement was telling itself an incomplete story that rendered people—esp. people of color—to the margins.
People of color are largely invisible in this color-blind movement. And I don’t know how I’m supposed to feel about that. But I know how I do feel: dismissed, silenced, erased. But also motherfucking determined to make you see me.

Olrait olrait OLRAIT!!! ¿Quién está ready para más PEÑA GUAY y más CIENCIA???? ¡Nosotros definitivamente SÍ!

Hoy es el turno de la unidad básica de temperatura: ¡Kelvin, saluda!
La temperatura siempre se había venido midiendo de forma relativa. Cuando decimos que algo está caliente, realmente queremos decir que está MÁS caliente que alguna otra cosa (el entorno, nuestro cuerpo, etc).
Así que cuando vino la hora de crear una escala de temperaturas, Anders Celsius hizo lo mismo. La escala Celsius no es más que decir "esto es más caliente que el agua helada pero más frío que el agua hirviendo" pero, en fin, con reglas de tres de por medio.

Step 1: Locate odd binary being served to the public internet.
Step 2: Get curious.
Step 3: Fire up a contained, temporary, virtual environment.
Step 4: Run the binary.
[result attached]

Step 5: Forever wonder of what could have been.
And of course they are also serving up a script that gives *ultimate* trust to expired keys. THIS IS NOT OK FOR A DOD CONTRACTOR TO HAVE BEEN DOING (among other things).
But, hey, while you're at it you might as well pipe some stuff straight into bash from the internet, right? #yolo I guess.

peut-être que je vais poster un thread de +2.8k mots sur le #Zuckhearing, le #Zuckerbergtestimony, enfin sur #Zuckerberg devant le sénat, quoi.
pour le style, c’est un live différé, amplement commenté. j’ai lu les reports américains ce matin, j’ai pris des notes, et je vous raconte en français (dans un langage racaille nerdcore, comme d’habitude.)
ça va sans doute être relou, désolée, mais j’ai toujours rêvé de pouvoir faire comme les mecs devant le foot (le problème étant que le foot, j’en ai strictement rien à foutre, évidemment.)

#THREAD: I am at the #COMMA2017 content summit conference. I'll be discussing #ASEAN integration, the digital media landscape and the #millennial agenda.

What is the future of news and media in ASEAN?

Stay tuned!
#CeritalahASEAN started with Ceritalah 25 years ago in the early 90s - during the height of print media. In those days, The Economist, The Straits Times, The New York Times, were really flourishing. Much of the 80s and 90s, I met with and talked to editors across the world.
Those publications were really dynamic and powerful.

But we've seen those publications come down. WSJ stopped printing in Asia. Jakarta Globe stopped printing in 2015. KiniBiz, Volume in Thailand also stopped printing....

What has come up to replace those institutions?
