mircea_popescu: otherwise, almost neobee to a fault. "The growth teams met ambitious goals by targeting the most influential students on campus, such as group presidents and fraternity and sorority leaders. The leaders were shown some images from the website, and the deal was sealed with a compelling prize: If the entire organization signed up for Clinkle’s waitlist, then all of them downloaded the app on the day it became available
mircea_popescu: , the group could win a $500 party, spa visit or stereo-system package. None of the pitches included a demo of the actual app."
mircea_popescu: this sort of retarded shit's becoming something like the new normal.
BingoBoingo: "After the sales team hit its 100,000 sign-up milestone on a Wednesday in late September, Clinkle paid for a “booze bus” to take them out partying that Friday. Two days later, a dozen people who had been on that bus received a phone call from Clinkle’s management team. The message: Don’t come into work tomorrow — you’re fired.

mircea_popescu: One described the way engineers were treated versus everyone else as a “caste system” within Clinkle. Another said there was “segregation in terms of how departments were treated by management.”
mircea_popescu: For example, only engineers, some designers and product people were given stock. And some of the other departments, such as operations, were asked to do menial tasks for the engineers.
mircea_popescu: holy shit.

artifexd: It absolutely does not hurt to occasionally think, "How easily could I be replaced by a small shell script?"

TestingUnoDosTre: Do I want persistence on a USB drive Linux that I'll be using to access/store offline funds ?
Duffer1: i'm not sure man, i just downloaded ubuntu 14.04 myself, i have no idea what best practices are
TestingUnoDosTre: didn't 14.04 just come out like... today?
nubbins`: it depends on whether you want to store keys on there or not
nubbins`: or passwords, whatever
Duffer1: ya testing
Duffer1: the last time i used linux was redhat for dummies half a lifetime ago
TestingUnoDosTre: Keys like GPG keys, or keys like private bitcoin keys?
Duffer1: so i'm not exactly up on security practices :P
TestingUnoDosTre: nubbins, let's say yes I do want to store keys there
TestingUnoDosTre: would that be yes, persistence desired?
nubbins`: i'd assume so, yes
nubbins`: for example, persistence wouldn't be an option if you were running linux from a cdr
nubbins`: because you can't save your changes
TestingUnoDosTre: But I will need persistence if I want to download some bitcoin client and maybe like python-qt4 when I first boot?
nubbins`: you will need it if you don't want to have to download a client and python every time you boot

artifexd: He hasn't authed with nickserv in 19 weeks.
artifexd: Dude ain't around
ThickAsThieves: So rhe process for controlling it would be to state purpose and provide url?
ThickAsThieves: Seems a lil loose but i also dont get how to make someone an official rep
artifexd: Pop into #freenode. Ask a staffer to transfer control. Answer whatever questions he has. (Is it open source? Etc...)
artifexd: If you recognize me as a rep, I'm a rep.
TestingUnoDosTre: what magic is this?
artifexd: I can point them at the bitcointalk thread. And say, "See ThickAsThieves created the project. He says I am a rep. Don't believe me? Ask him."
artifexd: If they ask, say "Yep"
artifexd: The fact that the founder of the channel is long absent and his nickserv account is expired make it much easier.

Namworld: Eh. I have a loan still outstanding. I was repaying people for a good while after BTCT.co closed. I ran into issues tho, I'm not done repaying everyone.
fluffypony: still, on a list of hipsterrific scams it seems an odd thing to mention
kakobrekla: so you are 'temporarily defaulted' ?
kakobrekla: if theres such thing
Namworld: Well people so far have accepted my explanation and were okay to wait a while.
kakobrekla: well, if someone is ok to assfuck him, that doesnt mean you didnt assfuck him
kakobrekla: just sayin.
Namworld: The terms where that loan was redeemable on demand, providing time for liquiding assets. The timespan is just getting unreasonable.
Namworld: Although otherwise I guess that yes, it's a default. I just don't know why he's naming me among so many scams who are more than just late. Or where he even learned I'm late on some payments.
Namworld: Actually nevermind, I guess since I'm not paying daily interest like on contract, that's a default.
kakobrekla: :D

mircea_popescu: edlund10 link to 1st chapter in that link, then chains of links to following chapters.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: because they do all the heavy lifting of getting it into the Kindle and iBooks stores etc.
edlund10: great
mircea_popescu: do they pay out btc ?
fluffypony: nein
fluffypony: although it could be an interesting proposition to them
fluffypony: especially for overseas authors
mircea_popescu: meh, a few hundred bucks on yet another site account somewhere is at this point a net loss to me,
mircea_popescu: i'd have to put someone on it and everyone's overworked.
fluffypony: they don't charge
fluffypony: they take comm on sales
fluffypony: "We work on commission. We don't charge for our ebook publishing, conversion and distribution services, and we don't sell publishing packages. We earn our commission only if we sell your book, and our commission is only 15% or less of the net, which works out to 10% of the retail price when your book sells at our retailers. For example, a $10.00 ebook sold at one of our retail partners earns you $6.00 and earns Smashwords $1.00. The same
fluffypony: book sold at Smashwords earns you about $8.00."
mircea_popescu: yes but they also don't do it by themselves, it seems.
mircea_popescu: so... i'd have to put someone on it.
fluffypony: they do the distribution
fluffypony: http://www.smashwords.com/distribution
ozbot: Smashwords – Distribution
fluffypony: they also provide the ISBN if there isn't one already
mircea_popescu: dude. looky here : at this point the situation is, some site somewhere provided you do some things may maybe sell your book. things such as i dunno... make an account.
mircea_popescu: now, the upside i judge at what, a few hundred bucks. cause they're not gonna sell a million copies without advertising and marketing work.
mircea_popescu: and the downside is i'd have to put "make acct with X site" on someone's workorder.
fluffypony: I get your point
mircea_popescu: aok.

BingoBoingo: fluffypony: The solution is more along the lines of, if the woodchipper eats your right arm, don't offer it your left.
fluffypony: well, it wouldn't make spending too difficult (maybe make it a 3 of N multisig, for eg., or even less - 2 of N), but to make scamming more difficult and thus require not only the manipulation of the market but also the manipulation of the (more competent) investor pool

fluffypony: BingoBoingo: already replied
fluffypony: apparently I'm a support channel
BingoBoingo: Well, what's the whole story it is hard to find the original threads
fluffypony: oh
fluffypony: when we launched we had a shipping option called surface mail
fluffypony: which is basically over the sea
fluffypony: but it's not by ship directly to the destination port
fluffypony: it goes through the normal routing, but by ship, so it's extremely slow
fluffypony: 2-3 months
fluffypony: of course, because it's the cheapest, like 70% of the people went for it
BingoBoingo: So... Somali Pirates ate the rigs?
fluffypony: and we shipped their order
fluffypony: no, they all arrived, we haven't had a lost shipment yet
fluffypony: but they do take ~10 weeks to the US
fluffypony: and there's literally nothing you can do in the interim
BingoBoingo: ...
fluffypony: so
fluffypony: a lot of people complained, and we removed the shipping option
fluffypony: because it's unpredictable as well
fluffypony: 5 weeks to the UK
fluffypony: then suddenly 10 weeks
fluffypony: all the guys with large orders (>$500) are chilled, because they read the timelines during checkout, they understood how long it could take
fluffypony: it's the guy with an $80 order that complains the loudest
fluffypony: even when people confirm the timeline: https://bitcointa.lk/threads/ann-openrigs-com-aluminium-frames-for-mining-rigs.262873/page-15#post-5692124
fluffypony: you still have idiots that insist it's impossible
fluffypony: and that they can ship stuff from China for 1/10th of the price and 80x the weight and it arrives in 2 days
BingoBoingo: Well, China is good at exporting.
fluffypony nods
fluffypony: their postal service pricing is better than ours
fluffypony: at any rate
fluffypony: that's why we've now got a US and an EU distributor
fluffypony: saves all that hassle
fluffypony: and people can get it in 3 days instead of 3 months
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.06695 = 0.1339 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: Still, how was this idea born? Manufactering and shipping from South Africa... A country that just really isn't so good at shipping.
fluffypony: to be fair, our post office's EMS shipments have been amazing and reasonably priced (they charge on actual weight, not volumetric, and deliveries have been 5-9 days worldwide)
assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!
fluffypony hugs assbot
fluffypony: manufacturing here is dirt cheap
fluffypony: not as cheap as China
thestringpuller: "The C.E.O. has to be the virus," Mr. Huang said. "To build a great company, you have to kill it a bit every day."
fluffypony: but I didn't really have the urge to fly to China and setup a QC/manufacturing structure for a product that I didn't know would sell well

danielpbarron: fluffypony: yeah, I really like the idea too, and I think it could work fine for really small scale trivial stuff
mrstickball: the problem is that until you have full compliance with governments (just like with exchanges), the government can come in and can anyone for any reason

fluffypony: make me do actual work on a Friday night
BingoBoingo: Still friday afternoon here. Have yet to go to the liquor store.
thestringpuller: BingoBoingo: you a baseball fan?
thestringpuller: I LOVE BASEBALL
BingoBoingo: thestringpuller: Yeah
cgcardona_: friday morning here. bright and early
thestringpuller: I usually get
thestringpuller: season tickets to the braves
BingoBoingo: thestringpuller: Best sport for casual drinking while watching.
thestringpuller: or a half season pack
BingoBoingo: Nice.

thestringpuller: high as shit
BingoBoingo: Braves always have a solid team.

BingoBoingo: Nice cgcardona_
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: At Busch II or Busch III

cgcardona_: its so common in SF that you can just get away with it and noone says anything
fluffypony: BingoBoingo: I don't know - it was in May 2010?
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: That'd be Busch III, first season there was in 2006
fluffypony: cool
thestringpuller: edibles are just as good
thestringpuller: eat a cheba chew while tailgating

fluffypony: it was fun, and I enjoyed the food/booze there significantly more than like 95% of the restaurants/takeout places I was hauled off to in St. Louis
cgcardona_: different time frame w/ edibles. They are just as good but you gotta wait half an hour or so. Sneaking a quick vaper is always the way to go. (if that's your thing of course)
TestingUnoDosTre: Half an hour minimum
TestingUnoDosTre: I ate some taffy and it really started kicking in after a couple hours. Guess it absorbs better after you eat a fatty meal

thestringpuller: artifexd: think reddit in the wot
bitcoinpete: ;;later tell mircea_popescu if tatiana is available for the third conference, you can judge her for yourself ;)
gribble: The operation succeeded.
artifexd: I got the whole "If too much of the wot acts in unison, it largely defeats the point of a wot" part. It was the last part about only witnessing half the herp derping that lost me.
artifexd: What does "herps derps legit things" mean?
thestringpuller: well the example of the teacher an non paying attention students
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8400 @ 0.00101 = 8.484 BTC [+]
artifexd: And....
thestringpuller: that's pretty much it
thestringpuller: the WoT could be infiltrated by script kiddies who all rate each other and work in tandem like group think of reddit
thestringpuller: so the minorirty becomes the actual trustworthy people such as mircea_popescu or kako
artifexd: What does "herps derps legit things" mean?
thestringpuller: they fuck up a legit thing
artifexd: So actors A and B were good, trustworthy people until they fucked up. But actor C only sees one of them fuck up. <- Am I tracking so far?
thestringpuller: yea
artifexd: Then kakobrekla says "How does that help?" How does that help what and in what way?
mrstickball: I think you could have independent audits of the WoT to verify legitimacy
thestringpuller: ...
mrstickball: its not hard to use a script to defeat automated Reddit WOT bots, too
thestringpuller: that's not what he's talking about
mrstickball: you mentioned script kiddies using bots to upvote/ect
artifexd: Well it wouldn't be just script kiddies and bots. If mircea_popescu were to rate someone as something and then everyone else in here were to rate that same person as that same thing, it would have the same effect.
thestringpuller: yes in tandem, but the problem is the n nodes ignore the script kiddies
thestringpuller: at random points
fluffypony: so then is it a matter of macroscopic vs. microscopic views of the WoT as it relates to a single entity within the WoT?
thestringpuller: suppose I herp derp someone, n(1) sees it but n(2) does not
thestringpuller: that's where the problem arises
thestringpuller: because n(1) and n(2) don't group think
fluffypony: yes
artifexd: How is that a problem? n(1) could rate you appropriately. n(2) could not.
fluffypony: so if n(2) had a macroscopic view they would see the rating given by n(1) ?
artifexd: n(2) would probably look at all the ratings given to thestringpuller and make his own jugement.
fluffypony: one would hope so
artifexd: And in doing so, group think should be visible.
fluffypony: thus the issue only arises when n(2) maintains a microscopic view and disregards the WoT in favour of observed or hearsay indications of "trust"
artifexd: Take a look at http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewratingdetail.php?nick=aethero&sign=ANY&type=RECV
artifexd: There are multiple ratings that exist only to move aethero's rating in a specific direction.
thestringpuller: artifexd: no not at all. that would be groupthink. n(2) did not see what n(1) did so to rate me is to group think
fluffypony: right, so sort by rating, talk to those with the most positive and most negative stories
fluffypony: take with a pinch of salt and make up our own mind
artifexd: If n(2) were to rate you based soley on n(1)'s rating, yeah, that'd be groupthink.
artifexd: I had assumed in your example that n(2) didn't rate you at all for that specific scenario.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 6 @ 0.0672 = 0.4032 BTC [+] {2}
thestringpuller: so?
artifexd: Groupthink is the problem, right? At least as far as it is not immediately visible as such.
fluffypony: sleep time, cheers
thestringpuller: yup
kakobrekla: and remember kids, no brain, no tumor.
artifexd: kakobrekla: Is that article from #bitcoin-assets logs or a summary of a verbal discussion.
artifexd: It feels like much is missing.
kakobrekla: its from pms
kakobrekla: but theres nothing missing really.
artifexd: Can you explain what sx and sy are?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 3 @ 0.04499999 = 0.135 BTC [+] {2}
kakobrekla: sybil entities
artifexd: The phrase "ignoring what I suspect to be sx" throws me.
thestringpuller: artifexd: have you looked at the wiki article yet? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sybil_attack
artifexd: I have not. A sybil attack is something that I thought I understood.
thestringpuller: just apply it to WoT and you'll understand the convo
artifexd: OH! When he says sx and sy, he is referring to nodes, but more specifically, they are malicious nodes.
artifexd: So "suspect to be sx" means "suspect to be a malicious node".
kakobrekla: right
artifexd: With that in mind, re-reading...
kakobrekla: ima gonna get a shower.
thestringpuller: i hope there is a hot chick in that shower with you kakobrekla
artifexd: <kakobrekla> Ok, lets assume a simple case, with s1 and s2 which are both legit. <- If we go with s and n as malicious/legit modifiers, how can s1 and s2 be legit?
artifexd: <kakobrekla> So now each of them herps derps legit things. You see half of it. <- That now reads as they both make legitimate ratings but "you" only pays attention to one of the ratings.
artifexd: mircea_popescu is saying that if I were to see both ratings I would have a view of what happened such that I wouldn't need to ask anything about it, but, if I ignored one of the ratings, I would have a different view of what happened such that I would need to investigate more and thus possibly expose a falsified event?
thestringpuller: reeds moar game theory
artifexd: Apparently I must\
kakobrekla: should be "n1 and n2 which are both legit"
kakobrekla: the convo was edited.
kakobrekla: (condensed a bit)
kakobrekla: and "herps derps legit things" meaning talking about legit things which the author assumes is not legit, thats why the herp and derp
thestringpuller: ah
kakobrekla: theres a slight possibility
kakobrekla: well
kakobrekla: nevermind.
TestingUnoDosTre: I thought it meant rates something legit as if it were illegitimate
