While Atlas has failed in many endeavors, making an ad campaign on feedzebirds cannot possibly fail, and might even have an effect.  He actually went and did something, and nobody should point and laugh at him for doing so.

I've failed? Interesting. I don't recall ever costing anybody anything nor significantly sacrificing on my part.

Sure, I didn't complete what I had intended in many cases; I do that daily. I never consider it failure. I consider it life. Failure to me is true loss and that has yet to be seen.

@HarveyAlpha (https://twitter.com/#!/HarveyAlpha) | It would be foolish to assert that there is no power above mine. Only the attitude that I take toward it will be quite another than that of the religious age: I shall be the enemy of every higher power.

FeedZeBirds runs on Bitcoin and anyone can place an ad campaign there. What's so special about the tweet Atlas wrote?

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I took the initiative to invest 5 Bitcoins in the campaign and solicit over 15 Bitcoins in donations from the forum. I solicited 4chan and other corners of the web to get various tweeters. Mind you, nobody had done a campaign like this before.

I think I did a mighty fine job. I'm proud of the value that I am creating.

Well, the problem is that you never follow through on any projects you propose.  I see that as failure when you do it more than 10 times and just sit on your ass the whole time.

Thanks for actually doing something this time, though Smiley

I do follow through on some projects. I may do it half-way most of time but I still gain knowledge and experience. I hate to make excuses but I live a pretty painful life. My depression and anxiety don't treat me too kindly. I am proud of the efforts I sustain regardless of the milestones they reach.

What use is knowledge and experience if, in your parlance, they aren't put to use by creating value for people?
I'm all for learning from mistakes, but when you've tried 10 times and succeeded 0 times, that's a problem.

They are of use to me and my friends gain value from seeing me make efforts and building myself. The value may not be tangible to you but that's hardly an issue on my end.

In addition, I've succeeded every time. I was living, perceiving and acting within my nature. I can do no better than act within my nature. That is a sentient being's only duty. It's success all around in my eyes. I see no problem.

My efforts will grow all in good time. I am not worried.

Atlas has never begged for money, last I checked. I haven't seen him under his original name for awhile now. I wonder if that alias will ever come back?
You're Atlas LOL...

Actual, your statement may not be true. Atlas said that he never enjoyed attention. It doesn't mean he doesn't go out of his way to get it. I look forward to clarification on this, Harv.

i love hearing kids suffering from depression - get off your lazy ass and go play outside, better yet join some bootcamp type of  physical activity. it's the best medicine from melancholy and depression. stop pitying yourself like there's nothing you can do about it unless you are a disabled person.  and yeah constantly hyping expectations on new initiatives without delivery is equal to failure even if you don't think so people will stop taking you seriously.

good luck!

That means you failed.  But that's ok, because failure is part of life.  It's the folks who constantly try to redefine success so it applies to them that make nothing of their lives.
