00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:13,480
We’ve been talking about cool and its ramifications and how it applies to the privacy scene.

00:00:13,480 –> 00:00:17,640
But maybe you can give us some examples now of the opposite of cool, uncool, just exactly

00:00:17,640 –> 00:00:18,640
what is uncool?

00:00:18,640 –> 00:00:21,600
Yeah well we have some thoughts on that.

00:00:21,600 –> 00:00:25,880
It’s uncool to claim that you have nothing to fear or that you have nothing to hide.

00:00:25,880 –> 00:00:29,280
And you know it’s even less cool to ask, “What are you hiding?”

00:00:29,280 –> 00:00:35,300
It’s uncool to scroll through your Fecesbook waiting for the light to change. And it’s

00:00:35,300 –> 00:00:38,800
uncool to let anybody know that your uncle is a registered Coinbase user, uncool with

00:00:38,800 –> 00:00:39,800
the whole family.

00:00:39,800 –> 00:00:45,560
You know it’s uncool to buddy with the known fed. And it’s uncool to ask, “Where’d you

00:00:45,560 –> 00:00:46,560
get the gold?”

00:00:46,560 –> 00:00:51,040
It’s disastrously uncool to let friends use your network as an exit node for packets

00:00:51,040 –> 00:00:55,000
from the dark web. And it’s uncool to ask, “Where did you get your Monero?”

00:00:55,000 –> 00:01:00,520
It is uncool to wear smartwatches, unless you should be wearing smartwatches, in which

00:01:00,520 –> 00:01:27,680
case it is uncool to take them off.
