RE: Massive shout-out to the Steem Community on twitter. Check out John's Tron Squad if you haven't already done so. #JTS

I feel hopeful that the community — once the initial sense of confusion settles — will try to see the positive aspects of this alliance, and not focus quite so much on "Oh my God, what will he DO to us?!?!?"

In most cases, mergers and acquisitions happen for the purposes of creating synergy and developing growth... not for dismantling. But it'll take a little time...

Exactly.!!

I don't know why people are getting so worked up about this.

#Steemit is not the first and certainly will not be the last Company to be sold that stitches on to the #Steem Blockchain.

In the future, there will be hundreds, if not thousands of businesses that are stitched to the #Steem Blockchain bought and sold.

Personally, I think this latest news stands as a testament to the resilience of the #Steem Ecosystem.

I guess that what comes from being an old fart.!!

You can't put a price on experience. ;) ;) ;)

I don't know why people are getting so worked up about this.

I think people are getting worked up based on the same underlying protests that followed the early Internet: The "nerds" who created the web were horrified and even grossed out by the idea that their mothers would be online, swapping recipes.

But you can't have "mass adoption" on one hand, and not have all the "stuff" that comes with mass adoption, on the other.

You're not going to GET mass adoption from insisting that the only way is to be fringe dwelling semi-militia anarchists sitting in a basement surrounded by weapons and survivalist gear. It's not how the world works. It's not what the world wants. So you have to compromise... "Ideals" seldom gain mass adoption in their original pure form...
