"I [suspect] that we are throwing more and more of our resources, including the cream of our youth, into financial activities remote from the production of goods and services, into activities that generate high private rewards disproportionate to their social productivity. I suspect that the immense power of the computer is being harnessed to this 'paper economy', not to do the same transactions more economically but to balloon the quantity and variety of financial exchanges." --James Tobin, July 1984

Rent seeking, I feel, is gene-deep if not an essential side effect of the cluster of strategies necessary to achieve sustainable extropy.

It has so many advantages--it preserves Martian life, requires fewer interplanetary launches, and makes it much easier to field-test Mars rovers.

Consensus New Year

The biggest jump is at 11:00am EST (4:00pm UTC) when midnight reaches the UTC+8 time zone. That time zone, which includes China, is home to a quarter of the world's population. India and Sri Lanka (UTC+5:30) put us over the 50% mark soon after.

Seems odd to have times in Eastern rather than UTC, given timezones are always quoted relative to UTC.

Is there a mistake in the caption or alt text? The caption implies consensus new year happens at 6:30 UTC, but the alt text says 5:30

It says UTC+5:30 which is a time zone that has midnight at 18:30 UTC+0:00.
