      @hawaiiboy Yup. I have tons of unused apps from bundles - primarily because for a long time it was cheaper to buy Parallels in a bundle.

        @johngordon Should add that I never bought into inefficient market theory. Always seemed like some people would have specialized knowledge who would do better than market where many didn’t have that knowledge.

          @johngordon “fair share of what they’ve earned” What does that mean though?
          clarkgoble
            @johngordon Yes but some things we are ignorant of that don’t seem at first glance intrinsically complex - such as how some viruses get past placenta.

              @johngordon Kind of surprising how many things we just don’t understand but that public assumes we do. Listening to Zika episode of TWIV and didn’t realize we understood the placenta so poorly. http://www.microbe.tv/twiv/twiv-375/

                @johngordon I think unpredictable was often a part of efficient market theory (to the degree I dare say I understand it) The idea wasn’t that markets are predictive but that you can’t predict better than them.

                  One thing this election cycle has demonstrated is that terms like socialist, conservative, and progressive have lost all sense of meaning and just mean a loose identity connection. Being “more” of category is more about “true Scotsman” than policy.

                      @jws @33mhz @oluseyi @johngordon …to risk this. They might be able to thread the needle but it might also just drive people off.

                        @jws @33mhz @oluseyi @johngordon Problem Twitter faces is that as soon as some polarizing post is de facto censored the censored group is going to yell and potentially lead a rebelling. Regardless of who it is. Politics in US are too polarized to be able…

                          @johngordon Yes, but there were some economists arguing that policy mistakes going back to Nixon era made using SSI incentivized. As Noah notes though workplace participation fell off cliff around 2000.

                            @jws @33mhz @oluseyi @johngordon To be fair to Twitter they’re kind of in a non-win situation regarding censorship and harassment. No matter what they do they’ll be charged with hypocrisy.

                              @johngordon What was weird is seeing Sys9 widgets on my Intel Mac. I didn’t realize they’d even done that.

                                @jws @33mhz @oluseyi @johngordon Admittedly the people yelling the hardest aren’t exactly sympathetic (anti-feminist and anti-immigration groups) but the feeling seems held across the political spectrum.

                                  @jws @33mhz @oluseyi @johngordon I think Twitter didn’t help themselves either with how they’ve dealt with some issues as well. Since these minority groups tend to simultaneously be a tad paranoid this means they react much more strongly.

                                    @jws @33mhz @oluseyi @johngordon I think people with more minority views just fear people who follow them won’t find their posts for various reasons. I’m see that from both left and right.

                                      This has tended to be my view. I think effect of money exaggerated. Big problem is more time issue than bias. → The great money-in-politics myth https://t.co/Z7bvFQLXC2 https://t.co/jrE1CfwpMd
