I was already playing around with a few different clients when he showed 
up and I started following him. A few days later he asked how to fund 
the development.

Yes, indeed. He understood very quickly that nostr is exactly what he 
wanted to be the backing protocol of Twitter when they started it. Alas 
the business side took control over the project and ended up being the 
crap it has became.

It isn't his project, but he's very enthusiastic about it, as is another 
co-founder of Twitter, who also has halted the development he was doing 
on a different new distributed project and joined forces with nostr 
developers. I can't remember his name, but I saw him on a video 
interview a couple of days ago I can try to find back for you if you are 
interested in watching it.

Nostr is so important that we cannot afford not to follow and, to the 
extent that we can, contribute to it. :-)
