RagnarDanneskjol: Jason will be messaging you momentarily
BingoBoingo: !up SmallBitz
mircea_popescu: there's really no need or utility for private messaging here.
RagnarDanneskjol: well, old habits die hard
mircea_popescu: Jason the idea is to expand current bitcoin-assets functionality with a register of deeds.
Jason: mircea_popescu: if you'd like to discuss in-chan, that's fine by me
mircea_popescu: this isn't exactly a supybot module, but more like a long term sort of project, which will both require maintenance and afford the maintainer a position in teh bitcoin hierarchy.
Jason nods
mircea_popescu: didja get to read the spec ?
RagnarDanneskjol: yes he did
Jason: mircea_popescu: i did, but now we're separating bitcoind from the bot
mircea_popescu: i doubt you need to run a bitcoind. all you need really is to generate a tx and include it. various services allow this, say blockchain.info
Jason nods
RagnarDanneskjol: FYI - I contacted everyone on git who has done anything with teh bots - most of the names led me back here, nanatube, etal. One amusing response you might appreciate:
mircea_popescu: maybe it's cheaper/easier to just do bitcoind i guess, depends
RagnarDanneskjol: Hi,
RagnarDanneskjol: I would have been available, but I am not willing to work for an
RagnarDanneskjol: organization who objectifizes people, and is deliberately

RagnarDanneskjol: Not to mention this: http://search.bitcoin-assets.com
assbot: Search the #bitcoin-assets log
RagnarDanneskjol: /?q=jpg+from%3Amircea+haslink%3Atrue
Jason: mircea_popescu: you're fine if i post my understanding of what the project involves, yes?
mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol yes, most people study joomla, which will never pay their bills. few people even know how much more important techs a la supybot are for the future of it.
mircea_popescu: Jason go ahead
RagnarDanneskjol: mhmmm
mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol that's okay, "an organisation who" doesn't want to work with people what such a poor mastery of grammers.
Jason: mircea_popescu: so essentially collect < 16 kb of data from a POST, record it, and have an event every 512 seconds to verify clearsigned signatures and append it to a string which will then be hashed?
mircea_popescu: in other objectifying women news, i just poured down the drain a whole bottle of mumm because i got fucking scammed. here i am, naively buying stuff from major colonials store, only to discover i am being sold local knockoffs. shit was flat and tasted like llama piss to boot!
RagnarDanneskjol: HAHAH

mircea_popescu: with me so far ?
Jason: mircea_popescu: so i receive data, and i store it in a database.
mircea_popescu: wouldja not anticipate ? lemme say the story.
BingoBoingo: Jason: Of course you can also PM assbutt nao and voice yourself just send it !up
Jason: BingoBoingo: i already did
Jason: thanks though :-)
BingoBoingo: Eh, I'm drunk
mircea_popescu: so now, lettuce continue on teh premise jason is with me so far.
Jason: mircea_popescu: just reiterating it as i understand it. go on!
mircea_popescu: the introduction of new deeds in the system can happen at two points :
mircea_popescu: one of them is an irc bot, active here. someone goes !add pastebin/blabla
mircea_popescu: the other one of them is through a form on a website, at deeds.bitcoin-assets.com
mircea_popescu: once these are acquired, some processing is done, as follows :
mircea_popescu: 1. each is chcked for valid signatures from people in assbot's l2 wot. if these are absent, the thing is discarded.
Jason: !up RagnarDanneskjol
mircea_popescu: 2. all the valid deeds received in a specified interval, say 512 seconds, are appended together, hashed, and the resulting hash is inserted into a bitcoin transaction, which becomes part of the bitcoin blocchain.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7685 @ 0.0007645 = 5.8752 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: once this event happens, the irc bot reports here "5 documents signed, hash included on block #x"
nubbins`: fun
mircea_popescu: all the valid deeds received and so included are also published on said website, ordered by teh blocks.
mircea_popescu: this can just be a long textfile.
mircea_popescu: ~ fin ~
RagnarDanneskjol: in otherwords, the killer app
nubbins`: but this doesn't explain why mpex is still saying to email my public key!
mircea_popescu: well, just another "better governance than irl" thing
[]bot: Bet created: "URO coin to trade below .001 BTC Dec 15th" http://bitbet.us/bet/1017/
mircea_popescu: nubbins` because it assumes.
Jason: mircea_popescu: got it. what format can i expect new deeds to be in? pgp clearsigned? pgp encrypted?
nubbins`: mircea_popescu but we all know what happens when we assume D;
BingoBoingo: Prolly both
mircea_popescu: they can not be encrypred, the point is publication. armored clearsigned is fine

assbot: JSON-RPC method idea: list transactions newer than a given txid
fluffypony: he basically says that you should never rely on the details of a transaction as a developer
fluffypony: as they can change
fluffypony: he literally spoke about the thing that mtgox did that made them vulnerable to malleability attacks
fluffypony: "Programmers are naturally inclined to want to use listtransactions like this: feed me the new transactions since I last asked, and I'll keep my own tally or static record of them. This will seem to work in all regular use, but if you use the amounts for anything, it is highly exploitable"
Vexual: the genreal thing is to ask .info
chetty: what you think devs read history? Its right in there with reading the manual

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is this the equivalent of "no offense, but fuck you and that whore of your mother" ?

mircea_popescu: it should, but it doesn't.
mircea_popescu: What can it do? Matrix math, basically. Obviously, even thinking about this in the most hand-wavey manner, optical computers should be good at image processing. When you break down what is involved in image processing, matrix math and Fourier transforms come to mind. We know how to do matrix math with optical computers. The limiting aspect is how many elements you can encode and modulate quickly. An optical matrix mu
mircea_popescu: ltiplication doodad will do it in time, up to the limiting size of the matrices that can be encoded in such a machine. This is huge, as most matrix multiplications are for square matrices of size N. There is all manner of work done on improving matrix multiplication and other forms of matrix math via statistical methods (subject of a coming blog post); the problem is very important, as is pretty bad on large proble
mircea_popescu: ms. People who have studied the history of computer science know how important the Fast Fourier Transform was. It reduced the 1-d Fourier transform from operations to , opening up vast new applications to signal processing techniques.
