MMH - FUD about Crypto, + GMO Mosquitos, Reversing User Bans (or not using at all?) - with Neet Shah, Boaz Salik

May 19, 2022

In this episode of the *Midweek Mess Haul, Nathan, Neet, and Boaz share thoughts on GMOs mosquitos, their outlook on crypto after the hard plummet of 5/12, and the strategic ramifications of permanent social media bans. 

  • The Quick Take: does introducing GMO mosquitos into an ecosystem have too many unintended consequences waiting in the wings? 
  • The Big Dig: is the end-state of the current "Wild West" of crypto something where only the strongest survived? 
  • The Final Cut: why should (or shouldn't) social media companies consider using permanent bans as a way to enforce terms of use?

The Mess Haul features a more free-form conversational approach with multiple participants than our more interview-focused style. This format is designed to generate quick takes on a handful of recent topics, facilitating shorter, more opinionated discussion with a number of different perspectives. Each episode of The Mess Haul is (usually) recorded, edited, and released in the same day. 

Today's conversationalists: Nathan Johnson, Neet Shah, Boaz Salik
