06:19:46 punkman: "Ten years after Paglen first conceived of the idea for the sculpture, Orbital Reflector will launch in early 2018 as a secondary payload–meaning it’s not the primary satellite being launched–on the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket."

09:51:36 punkman: old x2 :P

09:55:55 pankkake: :o should have went in history

10:14:36 punkman: is premium mediocre a premium mediocre category?

10:15:28 pankkake: I don't understand the question

10:16:23 punkman: too meta? is the category "premium mediocre", premium mediocre itself

10:17:05 pankkake: so I understood it but don't know how to answer :)

10:17:25 pankkake: the author himself is a filthy millennial but he admits it

10:18:00 punkman: "we eschew low-class memeing and listicles. But face it: actually enlightened elite blog readers read Tyler Cowen and Slatestarcodex."

10:19:21 punkman: yeah I don't know either, it sounds good, but then trying to think what does the category exclude

10:19:27 pankkake: oh the first one is marginal revolution, I didn't have the author in mind

10:19:41 pankkake: Slatestarcodex is great

10:20:53 punkman: slatestarcodex on my to-read list, but couple of posts I've stumbled on were good

10:26:50 punkman: compare with "favela chic", it leaves a taste in your mouth. "premium mediocre" is just bland.

10:28:17 punkman: even Venkat agrees "what Bruce Sterling evocatively labeled favela chic."

10:34:49 punkman: "The premium mediocre gentry are the cultural market makers and stone-soup instigators that the new economy needs to emerge."

10:35:08 punkman: "instagram market-maker"

10:35:31 punkman: (^what I'm gonna call them)

11:52:47 funkenstein_: "They don't want any cultural reference whatsoever. America wants to be virginally birthed every single day through the vaginal canal of their own mass stupidity, declare that they are virgins by birth, and they deserve a break today" -- a recent Keiser report
