Something strange is happening in the world of cryptocurrencies. To the investor, the speculator, or the casual observer, the industry is in the midst of the “crypto winter” marked by dwindling public interest and stagnant prices after last year’s massive plunges. But to the engineer or the founder, it is an industry which has never […]View More The most important developments in Crypto 2.0
Taylor Lorenz was in high demand this week. As a prolific journalist at The Atlantic and about-to-be member of Harvard’s prestigious Nieman Fellowship for journalism, that’s perhaps not surprising.

If reporting directly to an eccentric billionaire and getting paid in bitcoin sounds like your cup of tea, then does Jack Dorsey have an offer for you.
On March 20, the CEO of both Twitter and Square made use of the former to announce a new and very specific job opportunity in the land of cryptocurrency. Specifically, Dorsey wants you to join his personal super crypto posse — saving the bitcoin-maximalist world one open source contribution at a time.

Clarification hasn’t always been Twitter’s strong suit. Fittingly, there’s a bit of confusion around the long standing succession that the service could add an “edit” button in order to save users from silly typos and, well, much much worse. At a Goldman Sachs event this week, Jack Dorsey clarified that, rather than adding a controversial […]View More Twitter considering a tweet ‘clarifying’ function
It was supposed to be fun.
It was supposed to be an “experiment.”
Instead, it was a stinking mess.
Dorsey positioned the idea as a novel test of Twitter’s conversational features, which was odd to anyone who has ever held any sort of Q&A over Twitter. That’s, well, a lot of peopleWhy would the CEO need to test this out in so public a fashion?

In a live interview conducted on Twitter, ReCode’s Kara Swisher pressed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about what grade Dorsey would give his company and himself at fulfilling “tech responsibility.”
