March 4, 2018 - ROLL CALL! - What Does It Represent?


Hey all,

A small and short roll call today… mostly because I’m simply not feeling great, but, I wanted to take a moment to just let you all know how much I appreciate a small website like this.

I know, I know… odd to think about it “just” as a “website” but… it technically is “just a website”… but, of course, it’s much, much more than that, at least to me.

What it represents are powerful intangibles, things that I believe to be true and that will become even more true over time. Things and ideas like:

  1. Freedom
  2. Indepedence
  3. Autonomy
  4. Opportunity
  5. And much, much more…

Can a simple website do that? I think so. I really do think so. This naturally falls in line with the ideals around bitcoin and blockchain… these things are technology but what they represent is so much bigger, to me, to you, to all of us.

I can’t help but think that I’ve made one of the best decisions of my life when @peter and I started putting this thing together. That’s kind of cool to meditate on.

I hope you feel the same way, about your decision to not only join us here on The Pub but to also invest your time, resources, and money into this new and nascent decentralized world. If you and I can holdfast, we’ll be justly rewarded.

Have a great Sunday folks.


These are the best times of our lives. It’s hard sometimes to see past the bullshit of the daily grind. But these are, the best times.


I love this place. If I were to seriously put some effort into itemizing the various things that have meaning and value here, it would be a long ass list.


This place is a true community which is why I come here everyday. In fact, it’s more like a family.


Hi all! First timer to the pub. @john I know the feeling. Being able to have this global conversation with like minded folks is powerful!


The value this place adds to peoples lives is not to be underestimated. Hats off to you guys and the more prominent community members.


100% - so grateful for the community that @peter and @john have built and all the community members that make this such a great place. The future is bright friends!


Yes - there’s so much FUD around and so much official news that just makes people nervous about crypto, that it’s important to have a small slice of Internet where you know you can get sense and have meaningful conversations with open-minded people that would do their research before trying to shoot down your perspective just because their ego requires it.

There are so many ‘intelligent’ people that still think crypto is a scam, and even intelligent techies who just think “well, quantum computing will destroy the security of these blockchains, so they’re basically walking dead”. Where would you get good answers to give people like that?
