mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you know as a result of the fanfic discussion with kuzetsa it occurs to me : fifty or so years ago, the amateur "thinking man", ie, someone who could read and write and took delight in both, would mostly write (ie, try his amateur hand) science fiction. that is a sort of fanfic to the canon of nature.
mircea_popescu: with the revolution of comfortability, the "same" guy is now writing fanfic to the canon of some derpy author or other, inept substitute for the actual god of the gaps.
mircea_popescu: this is obviously a lot easier to do, it doesn't take nearly as much work to find an exploitable weakness in the "world" predicated by some schmoe working for some us publisher as it takes to find an interesting hole in nature.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8161 @ 0.00084714 = 6.9135 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: for being easier, it's also a lot less interesting, which is why the entire system relies on the walled garden concept : none of these write properly, ie, for the world. they all write for an arbitrarily restricted audience, which makes their task all that easier : athena can turn a single crow black from where it was white. a bunch of sweet singers of michigan can turn a multitude of birds a multitud of colors, and al
mircea_popescu: l pretend to the same earth-shattering effectuality.
mircea_popescu: that pretense is not good, of course, but nor does that matter : they don';t care if their pretense is good, they just want to hold on something. they similarly don't care if their lottery ticket is good, just as long as it's a lottery ticket.
mircea_popescu: quite fucking instructive, all this.

mircea_popescu: they do this sort of thing a lot, keep rewriting the fundamental myths without citation.
mircea_popescu: basically, if you make 500 "separate" literatures, you get 500 people who can all be employed as dante, the theory goes.
mircea_popescu: this is obviously easier than actually writing something good.
mircea_popescu: so thus you have the "universe" of x, y and z. they're all by and large rewrites of themselves, but hey, it pays the bills.
mircea_popescu: in a culture composed mostly of monolinguistic, ignorant twerps, such as the us (or, for that matter, china), it's not even so very hard to do.

cazalla: does anyone know what amount of coins are held in blockchain.info wallets?
BingoBoingo: Andreas' ghost?
mircea_popescu: cazalla generally nobody really knows what amounts are held in any wallets.
cazalla: mircea_popescu, what about blockchain.info specifically, looking at the amount of wallets created and the demographic that uses web wallets, surely it isn't that high and ball parkable figure?
RagnarDanneskjol: if I had to guess, would say between 10-15% of btc in circulation
RagnarDanneskjol: no basis for estimate
mircea_popescu: cazalla nobody of any relevance uses weballets as a matter of course.
mircea_popescu: maybe as a temporary measure for small sums, but otherwise, there's no good reason and too much risk.
cazalla: reason i ask is that australian listed company digital btc is developing a wallet soon to come out of beta and this site uses it as part of their valuation http://thesophisticatedinvestor.com.au/coverage-video/?filter=digital-BTC&report=initiation-report-september-2014 but i assume there is little money to be made in consumer styled wallets unless you plan to just rob the users
assbot: Coverage Video | The Sophisticated Investor
