asciilifeform: not unlike 'practicing' heat death of the universe
cazalla: asciilifeform, if you think i'm dumb now, you should've seen me at 19 parroting this shit
asciilifeform: cazalla: at that same age i tried mightily to find an engineering application of it
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform seems a simple preference scoring thing neh ?

mircea_popescu: i got a switch off a tree then marched her into a dark blind alley in the scary part of town, made her leave her clothes streetside, kneel there and swooshed her a few.
mircea_popescu: i have not subsequently inhabited said blind alley.

mircea_popescu: servers are expensive. customers are cheap.

ben_vulpes: now i have to have a conversation with some people who are really sold on virtualization about how either i'm a retard or these layers of indirection are not worth the fucking cost.

ThickAsThieves: "So if you support the idea of Bitcoin, you acknowledge the hazard of entrusting the entire economy to trusted third parties. You acknowledge that the ultimate power must be spread thin among every single participant and never be entrusted in hands of a few, even if it’s a democratically elected government." Good luck with that.
ThickAsThieves: "But as more and more businesses avoid paying more and more taxes, there is less money being left for the government. That means that extraction will become increasingly less effective and therefore allowing even more people to avoid taxation on even larger scale. This cycle would repeat until all government employees will run away to seek real jobs because their bosses wouldn’t be

ThickAsThieves: i can rationalize a majority of what he's saying, but it's overconfident that everything would go exactly as he sees it

pete_dushenski: da desert jooz had smaller jubilees every 7 years and larger ones every 49-50
pete_dushenski: agricultural land was returned to its "rightful" owner every 7 years, making it effectively rented out, with only property in walled cities able to be permanently transferred.
pete_dushenski: jooz who fell into debt were freed on the jubilee year, but not gentiles...
pete_dushenski: it was a basic economy to be sure
pete_dushenski: definitely more web of trust based

mike_c: justusranvier: i don't believe coinbase has a vested interest in large scale price manipulation. investor-mania would be great for their customer acquisition.
justusranvier: I don't either, actually. But they are very interested in being bought out. Suppose the company gets purchased by a bank. What will the new owners be interested in doing with that huge pile of customer deposits?
mike_c: bitcoin deposits? coinbase doesn't hold fiat. not sure a bank would know what to do with them.
