cazalla: every time i've seen him on tv it's because he's been scammed
dub: yeah, 750 should be nothing in teh grander scheme of his losses
kakobrekla: former computer science student and bitcoin entrepreneur from Perth, Australia, told CoinDesk he was traveling in Bali and didn’t think connecting to public Wi-Fi could be a security issue as his bitcoins were stored locally.
kakobrekla: cmon.

mircea_popescu: Multi-sig addresses, he wrote are “the only viable solution for securing bitcoins”. <<< pushing this shit incredibly hard are we.
mircea_popescu: "The standard model is to require two out of three keys to spend from a balance – of those keys, one goes to the user, one to the service (exchange or wallet) provider and another to a trusted third party." << how the fuck is this going to help anything for crying out loud
mircea_popescu: such nonsense.
BingoBoingo: Interesting history of a software prng http://www.openbsd.org/papers/eurobsdcon2014_arc4random/mgp00001.html
Vexual: balinese dice?
mircea_popescu: cazalla listen, we need someone to make a proper bitcoin news venue.
mircea_popescu: instead of linking to a coindesk piece, just rewrite it so it's no longer FUCKTARDED, publish it and link that.
Vexual: aren't we here
Vexual: hmm
mircea_popescu: win-win.
cazalla: mircea_popescu, i looked elsewhere but it seems he spoke to them about it
mircea_popescu: only reason anyone's speaking to them is because of this false perception of "leadership"
mircea_popescu: exactly same reason derps flock to tardstalk
mircea_popescu: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2dqrmx/coindesk_is_deleting_comments_that_question_the/ for that matter.
assbot: Coindesk is deleting comments that question the validity of their articles. : Bitcoin
mircea_popescu: it's a shithole of the first degree, and it only continues to exist because everyone's like... meh, whatever, ragazines.
cazalla: is that an endoresment to start one?
mircea_popescu: it wasn't so bad back when the bitpay & co set of scammers that had stolen bitcoin magazine were still hoping that brand's not now dead,
mircea_popescu: but meanwhile...
mircea_popescu: cazalla definitely.
mircea_popescu: im sick of reading fucktarded goop because that's where people link for a story like that because apparently nobody else wrote it.
mircea_popescu: it's like having all fruit glacee'd in shit. how about someone start a greengrocer already, we don't need any of this glacee business.
kakobrekla: mostly only people who already know the real story are interested in it, not your avg reader
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla the average reader'd be interested in where his butthole is, if he could strain his brain enough to learn he even has one.
Vexual: im thinkin paywall
kakobrekla: i think the question 'who are you writing for' is in place
kakobrekla: for us - redundant.
mircea_popescu: hm.
mircea_popescu: problem is if you let this shit continue indefinitely you'll have an endless stream of idiots with firmly entrenched idiocies.
mircea_popescu: "99% don't give a shit about gavin's latest stupidity, but this is not a signal to stfu and go home"
mircea_popescu: "before than, 99% didn't give a shit about bitcoind 0.7 or .8 or .9, but CORE DEVS!!!"
BingoBoingo wonders where a managing editor might be found. Experience with this seems to be the scarce piece.
mircea_popescu: well done, core devs for a project that massively ignores you.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the problem is the sort of drive.
mircea_popescu: what's needed is someone willing and able to put 16 hour days into this for years.
mircea_popescu: an arrington is what's needed in this space. and by god this is the chance for someone like that to become something like that.
Vexual: i know little enough to edit
dub: what we really need is btc onion
kakobrekla: if you let this shit continue < way too much stuff continues to continue and noone can do shit.
cazalla: i'll have a think about it, i don't want to say yes unless i'll actually commit to it and have a plan of attack
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: This is true.
mircea_popescu: dub nah, sa got that covered.
mircea_popescu: cazalla ideally a team.
kakobrekla: and lots of css
TheNewDeal: where is the btc onion? I would like a link
mircea_popescu: no css.
Vexual: rss?
dub: bootstrap?
kakobrekla: html3 and css5
mircea_popescu: and none of the fucktarded retardation of that guy what's his name, the wanna-be competition for coindesk and co,
mircea_popescu: the guy that was here for five minutes but then concluded he has better things to do
mircea_popescu: with the same stupid head that then generated that entire "taking full responsibility" fiasco.
cazalla: coinfire?
mircea_popescu: right
cazalla: it became even stupider http://coinfire.cf/2014/09/26/lets-get-meta-site-ownership-via-token/
assbot: Let's Get Meta with Site Ownership via Token - Coin Fire
mircea_popescu: it's been going to shit ever since the guy ran out of his 6 months of time and "had to make revenue"
mircea_popescu: his attempts are so naive and idiotic it pains. definitely sunk the modicum of credibility he had amassed within two weeks.
mircea_popescu: which is what i mean. no movements like that. you run into management problems, come here and ask.
Vexual: ive got a good title
mircea_popescu: and it's unfortunate, too, because all that was easily avoidable.
mircea_popescu: but tim gotta tim all over the tim.
BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: http://www.coinion.com/
assbot: The Coinion - Bitcoin's Finest News Source
kakobrekla: you defo need a few persons for this and compensated for
mircea_popescu: you can just exploit the current idiots. read and rewrite coindesk and co.
cazalla: that would be enough to get it off the ground until it has traction
Vexual: that huffington lady got richer with her news aggregator than she did maring into shipping
BingoBoingo: I dunno that Coindesk puts out enough material... Too many non-stories http://feeds.feedburner.com/CoinDesk
assbot: CoinDesk
mircea_popescu: cazalla exactly. and you'll know you got the traction cause they start bitcoing.
mircea_popescu: bitching*
mircea_popescu: and it'll be a fine thing too. hurting stuff like coindesk is worth it just on that basis alone.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo to add salt to the cuts you can do a weekly roundup and mock their unpublishable shit.
kakobrekla: go ahead and try then
mircea_popescu: cazalla see inf danielpbarron feels like it.
mircea_popescu: JuliaTourianski what are you doing these days ?
cazalla: i would want to run something like that by myself at first and bring people in later, too many chefs and all that
Duffer1: what would be written about that isn't already covered by bit-ass?
BingoBoingo: cazalla: I'd be up for some story authoring, contributing to the cause. The too many chefs problem isn't about having too many people so much as a shitty heirarchy.
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 it's mostly a format war.
mircea_popescu: cazalla BingoBoingo has it i think. just don't try and run "teams" you'll be fine.
BingoBoingo: It's the editors/writers problem that among other shit killed Coinfire.
BingoBoingo: Like the Chefs/Cooks problems that makes most people's restaurant dreams fail
decimation: so I was listened to this podcast: http://www.econtalk.org/archives/2014/01/laurence_kotlik.html << this guy is an "economist" who says that if you total all the present liabilities of usg, they total to $205 trillion

BingoBoingo: Also LibreSSL update for the interested http://www.openbsd.org/papers/eurobsdcon2014-libressl.html
assbot: LibreSSL: More Than 30 Days Later
mircea_popescu: decimation something like that.
thestringpuller: what is coinfire?
Vexual: i spent 2 hours of my life wathcing huffingtons interview on abc, it was interesting
decimation: I've looked into the numbers and it is pretty much impossible to verify that total
decimation: but it's also impossible to account for the dollar at all
BingoBoingo: thestringpuller: Coinfire is this site that was promising for a week and a half then turned full derp
decimation: it's safe to say that usg has a present liability of at least all assets in the entire world, possibly more
mircea_popescu: decimation all that really matters is that the us has underwritten liabilities that exceed its ability to pay.
mircea_popescu: by how much is an academic point.
decimation: yes, the evidence for that statement is quite strong
danielpbarron: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-09-2014#850633 << sounds like fun☝︎

mircea_popescu: and there's no court in the world that can absolve it through a bankruptcy. whether they try to run one or not. kinda the fundamental reason it ended.
decimation: its choice is to either renig or go broke, it's that simple
mircea_popescu: can't renege.
mircea_popescu: and can't go broke.
mircea_popescu: it's choice is to start sucking cock or try a totalitarian state play.
mircea_popescu: it'll try both, fail both, and that's that.

Dimsler: lol australia
Vexual: yep united states sandbox
cazalla: no more waltzing matilda for me

decimation: "wrecker", but hearkening back to RSFSR penal codes that allow anyone to be jailed because they were found to be thwarting the great leader's plans
Dimsler: the term means to sabotage a political insititue
cazalla: interestingly, google image search for вредительство shows wrecking balls
mircea_popescu: the term means to pose a threat to the delusions of sovereignity of one less powerful.
Vexual: hmm

Dimsler: yes
mircea_popescu: in the original case, the "workers" and their "party"

Vexual: sounds like hungarian stew to my ear
asciilifeform: гулаг == главное управление лагерей и мест заключения ~= 'main management of camps and places of confinement.'

punkman: $10-$20?
JuliaTourianski: mircea_popescu and to answer your question, I'm posting things like this: "If you're gonna off yourself because of the bitcoin 'price crash', do us all a favor and turn off your mining operation first." because i mean it.
JuliaTourianski: punkman erm i can ask
cazalla: JuliaTourianski, do you mine?
JuliaTourianski: cazalla no, do u
cazalla: why would you want them to switch off before offing themselves?
cazalla: JuliaTourianski, i have a miner but it's really just for fun
punkman: JuliaTourianski: it's good for you when other's lose their coins
JuliaTourianski: cazalla one of the contributing factors is the hash rate deviating away from the price point, so if they're so upset about price crash, at least stop mining.

MolokoDesk: is this some quantum Shakespeare thing?
Vexual: no its an astro science thing
MolokoDesk: oh the dumbell-shaped comet pair with the ice isthmus. Yeah, they could blow apart from vapor pressure or tidal forces.
MolokoDesk: they're co-orbital though and would probably collide again.
MolokoDesk: just guessing.
Vexual: collide again
Vexual: seems unlikely
MolokoDesk: two sonnets connected by in circuit emulator determinants to the algebraic group su, what't their quantum spin?
MolokoDesk: collisions like that are generally how planets form.
Vexual: one goes one way, and one goes a ltiile diff
MolokoDesk: so the orbits diverge?
Vexual: no no
MolokoDesk: you could set up a betting pool on this.
MolokoDesk: SpaceBets
Vexual: yes the orbits change
MolokoDesk: they're gravitationally bound to each other though. the solar wind and vapor pressure would have to exceed their mutual escape velocity.

assbot: Manufactured insecurity and the issue of control pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
mircea_popescu: had he not made me read that thing, i wouldn't have the tool ready for like the best reference this week.
MolokoDesk: (you won't see deedBot in other chan without an invite or join directive)
mircea_popescu: this chan is so fucking intellectually empowering.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk hey how goes there ?
MolokoDesk: fairly well.
MolokoDesk: deedBot is resonably terse and bulletproof now.
mircea_popescu: didja implement the two things outstanding ?
MolokoDesk: switched to using the 15 minute updated gribble database files.
mircea_popescu: how big are they ?
MolokoDesk: it's tracking transaction IDs now. doesn't terminate.
MolokoDesk: oh they're kind of long.
mircea_popescu: nanotube is your preferred avenue for people needing to frequently query the db to check relation that they ask gribble each time or that they download the backups every 15 minutes ?
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk what do you save this way, like 1 query out of 3 ?
MolokoDesk: http://www.postalrocket.com/DEEDS/?FILTER=&FORM=x&SORT=0.5
assbot: DEEDS
MolokoDesk: gribble is completely out of the loop. the logic is linear no queues or state machines needed. Nothing stops if something else doesn't complete.
MolokoDesk: the code is much smaller.
MolokoDesk: splitting incoming files, verifying signatures, bundling are a single pass operation.
mircea_popescu: aha.
MolokoDesk: tracking is simpler.
mircea_popescu: well that's something.
MolokoDesk: it's just a lot easier and more predictable.
mircea_popescu: how often do you dld the db ?
MolokoDesk: side effect is that a json digest of the assbot trust web is available.
MolokoDesk: assuming anyone would use something compiled by a 3rd party.
mircea_popescu: well it adds to central security if there's some catastrophe.
MolokoDesk: http://www.postalrocket.com/DEEDS_TEST/ASSBOT_TRUST_LEVELS.json this is updated by a cron job ever 15 minutes.
MolokoDesk: y
mircea_popescu: well ok. if it's too much we'll fiddle with it or something. it is better code.
Azelphur: speaking of assbot trust levels, what does it take to get into assbots l1 trust?
mircea_popescu: ok, so what's outstanding here ?
mircea_popescu: Azelphur http://trilema.com/2014/the-bitcoin-lordship-list-first-revision/ << making it in one of these.
assbot: The Bitcoin Lordship list, first revision pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
mircea_popescu: generally, people hafta be impressed with how worthy of being ennobled you are.
MolokoDesk: probably #bitcoin-assets watching it work long enough for you to take delivery of it.
MolokoDesk: also it's not registered with gribble/WoT
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk okay, what's your gameplan here, do you want to also run this as a going concern ?
MolokoDesk: the logic for handing an ;;eauth challenge is already in. when it logs on and identifies to freenode it issues an ;;eauth deedBot to gribble and picks up any challenge response, decrypts the item and does the ;;everify
punkman: hashing spec would be nice
RagnarDanneskjol: I'd like to see it in pyth asafp
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YPCdJbZYXo
MolokoDesk: so I guess gribble is still in the loop, but not as part of the bundling process.
mircea_popescu: what is it now, all php ?
RagnarDanneskjol: yea
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk well sure. gribble can't be permaout of the loop :p
RagnarDanneskjol: I might ask Alz to give it a crack
MolokoDesk: the hashing spec is just SHA256 of the file converted to a bitcoin address.
Azelphur: mircea_popescu: I'm sure I'm worth ;)
mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol you're paying for that. it's a worthy cause :)
RagnarDanneskjol: I kno
MolokoDesk: I'm ok with writing it in python.

Azelphur: mircea_popescu: fair enough, yea I'm not too active here
MolokoDesk: now that the architecture and methods and algorithms are worked out it should be faster to complete.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk question was whether you want ot be the one running this or not.
MolokoDesk: it'd be ok with being the on-going bot op here. we'd have to work something out.
mircea_popescu: talk to me.
mircea_popescu: (people go "talk to mp". apparently mp does too.)
MolokoDesk: well, what's the attention span of a bot op adquate to service the trading/contract flow here?
mircea_popescu: uh. answer if something breaks.
MolokoDesk: I noticed that some people responded immediately by hand to stuff I sent to their bots.
RagnarDanneskjol: whats your expectation for response time mp? on any bot maintenance
mircea_popescu: from experience you get pinged within 5 minutes of it dieing
Vexual: cant even sell a playstation
mircea_popescu: well something reasonable, nothing set. if you're in the hospital and take half a week nobody's gonna sue.
MolokoDesk: if something breaks, it's mission-critcal and I stop what I'm doing and fix it now.
mircea_popescu: but in general, if you're online, you're online.
MolokoDesk: there'd be some way to send a message to my phone or desk.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk it's not that essential. can wait a day.
mircea_popescu: it can't wait a week is all.
MolokoDesk: yeah, no rush on decisions about that.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk no i mean, the fixing.
MolokoDesk: oh.
MolokoDesk: ok. well that time frame is casual. it would be fixed at my earliest convenience same-day.
mircea_popescu: it's not mission critical, it's in the "can wait a day can't wait a week" pile.
mircea_popescu: exactly.
MolokoDesk: it's likely that deedBot degrade gracefully. if any process in the chain stops things still get set up for the next bundle.
mircea_popescu: honestly i don't expect anything to break, since php is so stable and everything.
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Kf_RYVt2XQ
MolokoDesk: yeah, the program flow is sufficiently linear that it's not going to halt if something 500 server errors out at the API level.
MolokoDesk: running out of BTC would make it stop registering to the blockchain and the result might be one big giant deed bundle whenever that was remedied.
mircea_popescu: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7691289 "This could be huge in my opinion"

mircea_popescu: yeah it was huge. fucktards.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile the yc bitbet thread ? where is it ? "o, let's ignore and pretend that means we can stay relevant"
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk ima sent it a btc right now, actually. what was its wallet ?
MolokoDesk: I've always been intrigued by prediction marketplaces. The theory is that markets efficiently integrate all available information, so the price reflects some sort of best-estimate of the probability of the predicted events.
kakobrekla: o look, 1.258
RagnarDanneskjol: molo - how secure is that wallet?
MolokoDesk: so far nobody has the passphrase or keys or passwords but me.
MolokoDesk: it's replacable.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk it's an old discussion this.
MolokoDesk: just change the API key and "secret" to spend.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk so are you getting hacked ?
MolokoDesk: yeah, we decided the wallet is disposable, all of the security is in the signatures and blockchain.
MolokoDesk: it doesn't matter how the BTC is spent.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla aren't you glad you closed pritni.
penguirker: New blog post: http://trilema.com/2014/manufactured-insecurity-and-the-issue-of-control/

MolokoDesk: none of that is fake-able.
mircea_popescu: ;;rated MolokoDesk
gribble: You have not yet rated user MolokoDesk
MolokoDesk: ragnar was suggesting a faucet.
MolokoDesk: it's secure enough that nobody would spend time trying to hack it for $20
mircea_popescu: kay.
mircea_popescu: which brings us to the nextr q : would you like to develop a payments extension for this ?
MolokoDesk: however. if you had access to the source code, which is stored outside of webspace, you'd have enough info to spend the wallet using the API.
MolokoDesk: the source on the private GITHub has stubs for that info.
MolokoDesk: so it's not disclosed so far.

MolokoDesk: if there's serious btc flow through a payment system I'd think we'd want to put this on a dedicated server instead of the virtual machine where it is now.

mircea_popescu: punkman yeah srsly i was all wut'd
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZyVZFJGX5g
MolokoDesk: yeah, I can do that. it's not clear how i'd store the accounts yet. Probably an SQL database, but if it's storing pooled funds in a single wallet that's kind of an unsound practice.
MolokoDesk: but the most expedient way to do it.
mircea_popescu: nothing unsound about it. it's the right way.
MolokoDesk: authing people to make payment on the cred of their freenode nick, I guess that works if you trust gribble's data.
mircea_popescu: use a single inbound address, pay out from it as directed.
mircea_popescu: webwallet done right is also tumblr by default.
MolokoDesk: like a small change drawer.
mircea_popescu: exactly.
MolokoDesk: if people are comfortable with the size of their deposits at risk, and the risk level that's doable.
mircea_popescu: you're taking a sizeable bite here, if you manage to run all this for a while and not get hacked you'll have all the cred you could possibly want
mircea_popescu: so don't fuck up.

MolokoDesk: heh and get hacked... negative cred, maybe.
mircea_popescu: well yes.
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etAIpkdhU9Q
MolokoDesk: ok. I'll look into this. I'm not a security guy and linux admin is not something I do regularly, just as needed for my own projects.
mircea_popescu: how old are you ?
MolokoDesk: I know you've noticed the criticism A.Andropoulos has been getting.
mircea_popescu: actually i haven't.
MolokoDesk: and I think he has a stronger background in security than I do.
RagnarDanneskjol: no
mircea_popescu: ugh. what ?!
RagnarDanneskjol: he does not
MolokoDesk: his customer service dept let a security hole slide unfixed.
MolokoDesk: after being repeatedly informed of it.
mircea_popescu: how the fuck is it "his"
mircea_popescu: guy's a mascota, talking muppethead.
mircea_popescu: this is like complaining that the decals didn't fix the engine.
mircea_popescu: cause "it's their car"
bounce: what, decals don't fix engines? news to me.
MolokoDesk: yeah, he's kind of verbal intervention and keynote speaker. Not sure what his early role in bitcoin is. I think he may have been in the first round bitcoin foundation group.
MolokoDesk: but then Mark Karpeles was in that too.
bounce: it's called "best current practice" and the industry is full of it.
MolokoDesk: anyway, I dunno. It's just news feed.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk his early role in bitcoin was being a derp.
Vexual: oshit
mircea_popescu: anyway. how old were you ?
MolokoDesk: apple-style evangelism, maybe.
mircea_popescu: bounce that it is.
MolokoDesk: usually CSO isn't an honorary title. oh well.
MolokoDesk: anyway, I know how startups are. they do anything to make their "forward-looking statements" remain plausible for as long as possible.
MolokoDesk: put people with high profiles on their boards of directors that do nothing but waive attending the annual meeting.
mircea_popescu: omfg is it like a secret or something!?
MolokoDesk: nuff said then.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk how old are you dude!
MolokoDesk: over whatever.
mircea_popescu: more interested in the under part.
MolokoDesk: why? vocabulary? jadedness? polymath symptoms?
RagnarDanneskjol: he is older than us
MolokoDesk: yeah.
mircea_popescu: because i am trying to determine whether telling you to stfu and learn some unix admining is a good policy or not
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqHKaslks2s'
mircea_popescu: and that depends on how old you are.
MolokoDesk: we can talk freely. no prob.
mircea_popescu: o.O
MolokoDesk: or are you asking whether I grasp the troll aesthetic?
mircea_popescu: mkay. if you're under 30 stfu and learn some unix admining, it can't hurt you. if over 30 you probably have a point focusing on other things.
mircea_popescu: jesus gotta make if-then clauses.
RagnarDanneskjol: aha
bounce: you lack "answer the question" skills, eh. well, not the only one.
MolokoDesk: superposition.
mircea_popescu: bounce people get strange when put on teh spot huh.
MolokoDesk: I can find out what I need to know.
bounce can't get recruiters, hr peeps, or even first line support idjits to f'n answer their emails.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk if you're wondering, the entire line was prompted by <MolokoDesk> ok. I'll look into this. I'm not a security guy and linux admin is not something I do regularly
MolokoDesk: it's not so much not knowing, it's having to do it constantly.
mircea_popescu: right.
MolokoDesk: yeah, I think that was a symptom of long-term interests in other things.
mircea_popescu: well, good code means you won't have to do it constantly, cause good code never breaks :D
MolokoDesk: I'm thinking more of operating system updates, security patches, surveillance.
mircea_popescu: bounce the motherfucking answer! is the reason face to face productivity is better, btw. as expensive travel is, sometimes it's unavoidable, as people will mousy over emails for a year if given the chance
mircea_popescu: and so management has to fly people all over back and forth all day.
MolokoDesk: as 'security' best practices is mostly don't use certain language constructs, or coding practices that allow exploits from web input.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk these days, security mostly relies on not updating to the newest set of bugs.
MolokoDesk: for example I deleted wordpress from this VM. I don't use it and didn't even want it there.
Vexual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCGbNFFqxS4
mircea_popescu: get a secure system, bolt it down and forget about it.
bounce: this isn't usually a problem among the, let's call them "usenet crowd". people who're reasonably good at discussing more than one thing per email and are technically minded so don't take it too personally when asked to answer a technical question.
mircea_popescu: don't even get me started on the topic of wordpress lmao. fucktards put a ddos hole in their xmlrpc
mircea_popescu: you can use any wp installation to basically probe for free or whatever else.
MolokoDesk: well, I can write the payments extension but deciding where to run it may be a different issue.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk give the thing a day to think through.
bounce: heroku and google apps both, "for the resiliency"
mircea_popescu: wait what are you talking about !?

MolokoDesk: just realized that Tao_Jones has a "joke" payment system in it called luzcoin it's not a real coin, it just keeps accounts for people in one IRC channel elsewhere and they mess about with it rhetorically. it has a mining back end that increments the accounts in a sporadic lottery.

MolokoDesk: ok, for the payment system, it would create accounts based on wallet of origin of incoming payments. those would be the same wallets registered in web of trust/gribble, I presume.
MolokoDesk: random payments from unregistered wallets would sit in an account with no owner until someone registered them, but that's not a sound practice.
MolokoDesk: they'd be sent back to the originator or just forfeited.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk nah, create accounts based on person's wot id.
MolokoDesk: ok. so they don't need to register a wallet ID with WoT?
mircea_popescu: nope.
MolokoDesk: hmn.
MolokoDesk: how do you know who pays into an account?
MolokoDesk: I can figure that out.
MolokoDesk: nevermind.

mircea_popescu: kakobrekla ikno ikno. gotta tease tho!
MolokoDesk: right. how does one put money into the account in one's nick.
MolokoDesk: it has to come from a wallet.
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: so ?
MolokoDesk: so all you really now is that some wallet somewhere sent you btc.
MolokoDesk: whose wallet was it?
mircea_popescu: ~~~ [Use last 4 decimals encoding to identify owner]~~~
mircea_popescu: .deposit
MolokoDesk: so they just say "that wallet was mine"?
mircea_popescu: Hi MP. Please send to 1blabla make sure last 4 digits are 1944
mircea_popescu: then if you get 1.00001944 you credit it to me.
MolokoDesk: ohyeah, Igot it that first line.
mircea_popescu: so then what's the problem ?
MolokoDesk: they send you a microchange digit set and you confirm on that.
MolokoDesk: in private message.
mircea_popescu: nope.
MolokoDesk: like initial bank handhsaking.
mircea_popescu: no need for any of that. you just use a hash of their userid to generate a 4 digit pin, and credit to their acct all deposits to your address that have that pin for last 4 digits.
MolokoDesk: I guess one presumes nobody wants to give people money at random.
kakobrekla: ;;seen mike_c
gribble: mike_c was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 4 days, 15 hours, and 10 seconds ago: <mike_c> (j/k)
mircea_popescu: one doesn't presume anything. this is how the system works.
mircea_popescu: people can use it whatever way they please.
MolokoDesk: "oh gosh, that guy revealed the check digits of his paymet.. I'm going to make a payment to the same person for no reason with THE SAME LAST DIGITS!" = not likely to be motivated by anything.
mircea_popescu: and you only have one address in your wallet, and pay from it whenever someone asks and that's that.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk who's to know ?
mircea_popescu: maybe someone wants to donate to them.
MolokoDesk: yeah, nobody's gonna stop you.
mircea_popescu: hardened systems means among other things breaking the convenient assumptions of the enemy.
MolokoDesk: ok. with two audit trails that should be bulletproof, if it's all done in this channel the published channel logs are a matter of record. the payment extension also keeps an audit trail and a database.
mircea_popescu: yup
mircea_popescu: all ingredients for a secure system are there.
MolokoDesk: uh, what chance of two people randomly choosing the same 4-digit deposit suffix?
mircea_popescu: they don't choise it.
mircea_popescu: bot choses it.
MolokoDesk: amount would also have to math.
MolokoDesk: match.
MolokoDesk: ok.
mircea_popescu: what amount dood.
MolokoDesk: there are only 10000 of those.
mircea_popescu: yeah well, we won't have 10k users.
MolokoDesk: I was still back on 'depositer declares digits' not "bot declares digits"
mircea_popescu: ah. yeah.
MolokoDesk: 10k transactions. oh. each user has a unique 4-digits always the same. their "account number" sure.
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: and if it becomes a problem we move to 6 or w/e. not that any irc chan ever had 10k members online.
MolokoDesk: I haven't slept recently if I'm seeming dense.
RagnarDanneskjol: same as usual
MolokoDesk: what's the likely volume of the pooled wallet for what... 50 people?
RagnarDanneskjol: dense, not lack of sleep
mircea_popescu: i dunno, coupla btc ?
bounce: you start having problems well before 10000, that with hash collissions and everything
mircea_popescu: bounce true.
mircea_popescu: easy enough for anyone to test it, send 10k satoshi see if you get it.
mircea_popescu: if you don't get it, bitch.
mircea_popescu: bounce actually hashing isn't even the right approach, should serialize.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk maybe instead of hashing,keep a serial of when people go .deposit and use that,
bounce: then you have an arbitrary cookie and might as well use separate payment addresses
mircea_popescu: increment by one if person wasn't seen before.
mircea_popescu: bounce notrly. you use a single address chiefly because that way mitm is pointless.
nanotube: mircea_popescu: re db queries - depends on frequency of gribble queries. if you'd be querying gribble more than once per 15 min, get the db.
mircea_popescu: nanotube got it.
bounce: now I wonder, if you provide an oracle that combines a programmatically generated key from (secret) seed and (public) user number, would that be enough to recover the secret?

RagnarDanneskjol: uhh, thought some person needs to secure keypair for anygiven bot - like I assume kako has assbot's
mircea_popescu: giving it a gpg sig is a handwave anyway, whoever controls it can make it sign anything anyway. not like it's a creature in itself.
RagnarDanneskjol: right
mircea_popescu: nickserv id is enough really.
bounce: for freenode, whoever has access to the backend and can fix it if it goes amok

teward: mircea_popescu: secondly you run into namespace issues
mircea_popescu: o they don't do that anymore ?
teward: (#bitcoin-* is typically considered #bitcoin, like #anything-* is #anything)
mircea_popescu: teward it can just be b-a, or w/e.
teward: mircea_popescu: GRFs been closed a while, but point still stands, namespace issues
mircea_popescu: you don't have to name the group = the channel do you.
bounce: "#assets"
mircea_popescu: "freenode group registration is currently suspended, as the group registration process became significantly backlogged to the point that it was not viable to continue taking new registrations. This is an unfortunate side-effect of the combination of the following"
mircea_popescu: fucktards. they fail to list "we suck to the degree we will die of self imposed attrition. we don't even talk to people wh owant to give us free servers anymore"
bounce: so. freenode2?
mircea_popescu: bounce eventually. seems unavoidable.
mircea_popescu: sadly.

punkman: mircea_popescu: because it goes from file hash to pub address
mircea_popescu: punkman explain like im five.

mircea_popescu: uh.

I'm not sure how people work in #bitcoin-assets... it may be that everyone is developing "for free" because they are stakeholders in keeping the exchange going so they can use it, or the utility value of contributiing is worth it, or they're used to doing
MolokoDesk: open source for a lark.)
MolokoDesk: (let me know what's up.)
mats_cd03: fun fact: the Bluetooth Low Energy spec has three key exchange mechanisms. 2/3 "do not provide any passive eavesdropping protection" (as per spec).
bounce: depends on where you are. in the big blue room, the sky is the limit.
mats_cd03: so, since out of band key exchange is difficult, most BLE devices can be construed as selectively backdoored.
MolokoDesk: (oops. missed mp, who is the person I should talk with this about)
dub: aside from possibly a handfull paid to run mp's questionable meta-investment-vehicles I think -assets labour is expected to be free (as in beer)
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk people in bitcoin are as a rule filthy rich, which means they do whatever the fuck they feel like doing, which is why coming up with things that are actually worth doing is so important and getting people to adhere to trhe highest standards so easy.
dub reserve the right to be entirely wrong
mircea_popescu: as far as your own case is concerned however, iirc you wanted some bitcents to cover for september, which you got, which is where we're now.
mircea_popescu: obviously doing more work is more pay, your queue to come up with something was http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-09-2014#851612 ☝︎

mircea_popescu: dub don't forget all the trolls i pay to bother random anons that forgot to take their pills on random forums nobody reads.
mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol what's that to do tho ? i mean, this is merely how to index things on the site.
mircea_popescu: and he changed from the block thing to the tx thing which is fine.
mircea_popescu: dub how about the chick that got paid to secretary.
RagnarDanneskjol: I'm just addressing punkman's issue regarding coins spent to random addresses
bounce: on that note, how's the bitcoin f0ne going?
mircea_popescu: bounce still there, but i don't think many popl call.
mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol but how do you figure this does that ?!
RagnarDanneskjol: because it does
MolokoDesk: ok. I'm not sure the entire content of my conversations during 'recruiting' were relayed. I usually take and advance or progress payment on staring a project, and the rest of the comp on delivery to satisfaction of the person who wanted the work. There's no way I could have done this for the initial payment.
mircea_popescu: i dun follow.
MolokoDesk: However, I'm aware we never discussed final comp. so.
bounce: cards in the mail to all the rich and powerful. "call our bitcoin f0ne!"
mircea_popescu: bounce but why
MolokoDesk: I'd usually bill low 4 figures for something like this USD.
bounce: for the blogposts. what else?
MolokoDesk: you'll get this regardless. I'm just saying this isn't what I had in mind.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk well that's why it's very important to be loud and clear about what you have in mind.
dub: mircea_popescu: I thought they were teh same person
mircea_popescu: dub moiety and saffron ?!

dub: its teh internet and 'they' are female, there can't be more than one
mircea_popescu: moiety is actually cute iirc.
MolokoDesk: ok, guess, we should talk about what adding a payment option to this and maintaining the bot long term are worth in terms of comp.
mircea_popescu: heck, there's not so many ugly women in btc. which makes one think... what if there's more to hotness than usually thought ?
mircea_popescu: what if ugly women are also stupid ?
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk go ahead.
MolokoDesk: can I make the btc equivalent purchasing power of USD $1200 per month doing this?
RagnarDanneskjol: no
mircea_popescu: doing what exactly ? admining deeds bot ?
MolokoDesk: writing software and maintaining it on a priority level.
mircea_popescu: that, yes. but you'll notice it's also unspecified.
MolokoDesk: ok. think of it as a retainer.
mircea_popescu: derping around with bitcoin can in principle be very lucrative, but in practice it depends what you do.
MolokoDesk: or for whom you do it.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk retainers are useful where work is abundant and workers scarce. this is not the case in coding,
MolokoDesk: ok.
mircea_popescu: which is why things like linux can exist in the first placew.
MolokoDesk: linux has a lot of ancillary work it creates by people versed in the field and who know it's internals or can modify it. So the people working on it are contributing to it because besides being generallly useful and having the political influence it does, they make a lot of money on it.
mircea_popescu: <MolokoDesk> or for whom you do it. << well, yes, plenty of idiots manage to cosy up with the clueless and live decently in the process. not rly my cup of tea, but th world's full of tims and andreases.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk quite exactly.
MolokoDesk: there's kind of an odd hybrid type of open source made by companies like Rackspace. they give the stuff away for free because it generates enormous amounts of work for them.
mircea_popescu: !up ivok
MolokoDesk: ok. I'm pretty much out then I think.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk among other things bitcoin is not very friendly to the fiat world model of work for hire. it very heavily favours the linux style of doing things.
MolokoDesk: well, increasing the number of stakeholders would make sense.
bounce: http://www.der-postillon.com/2014/09/telekom-stellt-kunden-datenubertragung.html
assbot: Der Postillon: Telekom stellt Kunden Datenbertragung an die NSA in Rechnung
mircea_popescu: not sure what you mean ?
dub: bounce: lol awesome
MolokoDesk: if the only people who care about developing bitcoin are stakeholders, then having more stakeholders means more development and more likelihood that bitcoin in particular and decentralized cryptocurrencies in general will be around in the desired form in the long run.
MolokoDesk: right now bitcoin has a spendability problem, along with the disincentive to spend created by the expectation of deflation.
RagnarDanneskjol: not really
mircea_popescu: bounce wait wtf, german telecom wants to charge users for being spied ?!
MolokoDesk: there's also the volatility issue, but that may smooth out under certain conditions.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk the thing is, bitcoin isn't trying to make friends.
mircea_popescu: it's offering a narrow window for people to be friendly, is all.
bounce: check their home page
MolokoDesk: is it trying to survive though?
mircea_popescu: bounce o like an onion ?
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk in the sense the sun is "trying to survive".
mircea_popescu: it's not optional.
bounce: sort-of, yes
MolokoDesk: well. cryptography is a mathematical fact.

MolokoDesk: he epiphenomena that grow out of that may not be.
mircea_popescu: yeah but various implications flow from there.
mircea_popescu: major point being that bitcoin is not epiphenomena.
kakobrekla: sun is "trying to survive". < remember the matrix clouds
mircea_popescu: the perceived world is an epiphenomenon of bitcoin
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla yeah lol
kakobrekla: sun is just fine, earth on the other hand, fucked.
dub: thats actually not far from reality
MolokoDesk: there's a notion called non-entailment. it describes the non-predictability of evolving systems that lose backward-linked information as they evolve and for which there are a large number of adjacent states for which the fitness landscape is unknown or unknowable.
mircea_popescu: anyway, this philosophical arcana aside, i can see that people got bills to pay and so on, so. no argument from me.,
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk that's not an adequate model for things such as gravity.
MolokoDesk: ok. what happens if someone spends 12 million BTC to a non-stakeholder, someone who wants to use it as general purchasing power.
mircea_popescu: it's not like the future of the theory of gravity is uncertain. it's quite certain.
mircea_popescu: the future of any group of people is not certain, but nor does it matter so much,.
dub: one of the proposed climate hacks is block out the sun with sulfur
MolokoDesk: well, general relativity isn't an adquate model for nonlinear systems.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk as to your what happens : he becomes a stakeholder. there's a nice little fable re the nsa stash in the logs relating to this.
MolokoDesk: something we may agree on is that equlibrium models in macroeconomics aren't particularly descriptive, things like keynsian macroeconomics.
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-02-2014#475163 < that.☝︎

mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk only thing i can agree about re keynesianism is that it's retarded
mircea_popescu: i'd rather discuss actually self-aware religions than bizarre cults that claim they're not.
MolokoDesk: ok. we're in the same book there if not the same page.
RagnarDanneskjol: ugh
MolokoDesk: economics as a persuasive force is intriguing. the way the statistical distribution of ideology follows various market forces.
mircea_popescu: surely.
mircea_popescu: but as a great man once said, "it is forbidden to teach nonsense. but the study of nonsense, that's scholarship"
chetty: <dub> one of the proposed climate hacks is block out the sun with sulfur// I think Iceland is taking care of that
mircea_popescu: chetty fortunately for all of us, the sulphur lobby ain't got money,
mircea_popescu: or else the entire us would be coated in fluoride
mircea_popescu: i mean sulfide whatever.
mircea_popescu: i miss the old days when us people were still living in africa where they belong and they fought "climate change" by digging holes in their labia.

dub: sa
thestringpuller: oh hanbot ? on the bitcointalk forums
thestringpuller: who other than a nice person would sacrifice their sanity to try an educate lemmings for a paycheck?
mircea_popescu: bounce "idiots seldom differ" is apparently a natural law, not merely a clever theorem.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller an asshole ?
mircea_popescu: or otherwise, an underpaid public worker. like you know, a schoolteacher.
mircea_popescu: MolokoDesk you know thinking about it... you're very likely exactly correct.
mircea_popescu: first explanation i ever heard that fits the observable data and doesn't require active malice.
mircea_popescu: which, contrary to what people think, is extremely expensive and thus quite a rare thing.
bounce: one might surmise that greatness of mind is orthogonal to what minds think about
asciilifeform: malice - expensive? sure. only in the sense an arsonist's ir laser to torch 'reichstag' from 10km away is expensive. the fuel for the fire - 'watershed management' or whatever idiocy of the day - is cheap.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no, i mean psychologically expensive.
bounce: wtf is this watershed management model thing?
mircea_popescu: and ftr, watershed management is, if somewhat staid, perfectly valid agriculture
asciilifeform: sure.
mircea_popescu: which is a sort of engineering, for people thatdidn't get into metals scohol.
asciilifeform: point being, a small (biomass-wise, in the count of active participants) malicious agenda goes a long way coupled with great quantity of passive (non-malicious executors) biomass.
mircea_popescu: sure, but it's easier to teach someone math than to teach someone to be effectually malicious
mircea_popescu: and most people can't be bothered to learn math.
asciilifeform: teaching to follow directions and doing a maliciously-selected but eminently-reasonable thing - easy.
bounce: disagree. for malice you need a certain amount of cunning. if you have that, it's easy. if not, it's hard.
mircea_popescu: sure. but those don't matter anyway.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're basically looking at the cables. the cables aren't a machine, the transistors are th machine.
bounce: cunning and disregard for consequences or at least disbelief in your own responsibility
mircea_popescu: the nonlinear junction is the machine. and nonlinear junction is expensive.
asciilifeform: both are essentials of machine
asciilifeform: what is one, without other.
mircea_popescu: bounce no see, the brain is not an abstraction, it's an evolved mechanism. thus it has some channels which work a certain way to maintain it alive. malice requires your ability to isolate super processes from micro processes, so to have the former work backwards.
mircea_popescu: this is an extremely difficult proposition.
mircea_popescu: hence the "conscience", a pop reference to that fixed cost.
bounce: without conscience there's no cost
mircea_popescu: no, the cost is there. conscience is just the name for it.
mircea_popescu: the name for it you're familiar with, anyway.
bounce: not everyone is actually burdened by such a thing. there's a reason petty crooks end up in the slammer time and again: inability to own up to their own misdeeds, to admit it was them that dunnit.
mircea_popescu: to bluntly simplify, what's good for the cell is good for the organ is good for the organism is good for the group is good for the world. and that's how it naturally acts.
mircea_popescu: if you actually flip a bit in there, you'll need a shitton of boundry tests to not kill yourself with it.
mircea_popescu: this is actually false.
mircea_popescu: think about it : they DO end up back in, right ?

mircea_popescu: well then...
bounce: most of the time not of their own volition.
mircea_popescu: heh.
mircea_popescu: so then they are burdened.
mircea_popescu: not in one way, but who says that's got to be the way.
bounce: then they get out, and are unburdened again. and right out after the easy low fruit they're not supposed to take again.
mircea_popescu: not at all.
mircea_popescu: they get out, still burdened by the ill effects of their mismanaged flipped bit
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: no way! and yo upaid for the lemmings to be educated. that makes you a saint possibly.
mircea_popescu: which is how they get caught. because the code is broken
mircea_popescu: and it's broken because malice is expensive to write in software.
thestringpuller: A truly selfless act.
mircea_popescu: of any kind.
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller it just makes me rich enough.
bounce: uhm. the expense is in the disagreeability of the rest of society, in fact it's the totality of society that bears the cost
mircea_popescu: not at all.
mircea_popescu: the expense is in that it's fucking hard to have asm instructions add one way
mircea_popescu: and then arbitrary in the stack add the other way.
mircea_popescu: and still have the rest of the code work.
mircea_popescu: let me go into details here, make a full model, save you some effort.
bounce: aight
mircea_popescu: suppose we live in a fully defined world with a fully exposed api consisting of two functions
mircea_popescu: rightthing() and wrongthing()
mircea_popescu: cell gets low on adp. cell calls rightthing() gets more energy.
mircea_popescu: body gets low on glucose. pancreas calls rightthing() releases some glicogen from liver
thestringpuller: glycogen*
thestringpuller: (sorry)
mircea_popescu: person is hungry. calls rightthing() gets a job.
mircea_popescu: now, obviously, person could also call wrongthing() steal bounce's sandwich.
mircea_popescu: but the intricacies of calling wrongthing() in such a way as to not break the entire fucking stack are staggering.
thestringpuller: wrongthing can be right thing sometimes no?
mircea_popescu: brain is a repeating mechanism. next time person is in situation he may call wrongthing() again at a wrong time.
thestringpuller: what if stealing is the persons job?
mircea_popescu: how's one to know
thestringpuller: i.e. corporate espionage, professional art thief?
mircea_popescu: arguably.
mircea_popescu: which is why this is so damned expensive.
mircea_popescu: but if anyone's looking for intricate ways to waste their time, feel free to model a 5 layer system of successive binary calls like that, see how it affects population survavibility and how much space you need to be able to safely fire off both kinds.
mircea_popescu: should take care of about a year's worth of your time.
thestringpuller: or a year of a computer's time?

bounce: it seems to me that the prevalence of crime even in an otherwise well-run system would indicate that this model of implied excessive cost isn't representative
mircea_popescu: anyway, the implications of a call aren't always obvious, which is a point well understood by security analysts, especilally with all the practice of late, and also how we ended up with all that sweet greek mythology about fate.
mircea_popescu: bounce i don't follow the logic there.

mircea_popescu: im saying routers are expensive, you're saying there's a lot of internet traffic.
mircea_popescu: ok. so ?
bounce: there's plenty routers that do mostly the right thing but then subtly the wrong thing in some cases, and the costs doesn't show up as prohibitive
mircea_popescu: not a good rendition of the analogy tho.
bounce: (there's this example of big brand name (cisco, forgot the model) routers taking ttl 0 packets and sending them out again with ttl 255)
mircea_popescu: let's approach this with different instrumentation.
mircea_popescu: where do you suppose it's more likely for a suprlus to accumulate, urban or rural setting ?
bounce: surplus in what sense?
mircea_popescu: any sense.
mircea_popescu: some sort of resource.
kakobrekla: urban = surplus of garbage, rural = surplus of garbage disposal area
mircea_popescu: uh. a hole is not a resource.
bounce: well, I'd imagine that food surplusses are more likely in rural settings, and surplusses of "unwanted things" would be more likely in urban areas
mircea_popescu: bounce who's morel ikely to be rich ?
mircea_popescu: if i show you two people that's all you know about em.
kakobrekla: can you dig infinite amount of holes? no.

kakobrekla: thats where the human fish lives.
kakobrekla: (aka Proteus anguinus)
mircea_popescu: bounce also, postmodernism is fucking with me. pretend the year is 1950.
mircea_popescu: back when urban and rural even meant something anymore.
bounce: there'll be yokels and fat farmers just like there'll be city bums and rich city folk. though I suppose the city folk might be more likely to have opportunity to amass riches.
mircea_popescu: aand where's malice going to be found as an art for its own sake ?
mircea_popescu: peasants can't afford to be assholes.
bounce: well, you won't find cattle rustlers in the city
mircea_popescu: the "good hardworking type" myth is exactly that, too fucking exhausted to be evil.
mircea_popescu: bounce yes, you will. spending their cattle rustling money trying to impress the wenches.

mircea_popescu: and since we're on it, the "keep her busy" ideology of metastatic xtianity is exactly the same. "no time to think evil." they actually go out and say it.
thickasthieves: all stress is an expense
mircea_popescu: thickasthieves quite.
mircea_popescu: and here we make the junction with how lying is an expensive activity - you gotta keep track of all the lies.
mircea_popescu: same principle.
bounce: though I'll grant that mobsters risk stomach ulcers more than most other people
thickasthieves: <+mircea_popescu> thestringpuller it just makes me rich enough. // is there a difference, maybe a saint was "rich" enough too
mircea_popescu: bounce never knew one that had ulcer. plenty of govt drones did, tho. fancy that.
mircea_popescu: thickasthieves can you name a rich saint ?
bounce was referring to some scientific study or other. says something about gov't dunnit guv
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla wow i had no idea.
mircea_popescu: salamanders apparently.
thickasthieves: define rich
mircea_popescu: uhm. enough to pay girlies to show their tits ? i dunno.
thickasthieves: without restraints, might be my definition
thickasthieves: freedom
bounce: though the expense of lies is exactly in the tracking to try and keep'em straight. in some circles the lies fly so thick that everybody knows there's lots of lying going on, so there's very little point in keeping'em straight
thickasthieves: when you are rich enough to do wtf you want, you can practice sainthood and all kinds of "expensive" behavior
mircea_popescu: bounce right back to the routers example :)
bounce: does mean a lot of arguing and "convincing" and other crap. doesn't mean the cost keeps on going up; at some point the belief just stops.
mircea_popescu: exactly, an abundance in practice does not speak as to how the behaviour is expensive.
bounce: practicing for sainthood isn't that expensive really.
mircea_popescu: thickasthieves or just as well could not
thickasthieves: it's very expensive

thickasthieves: now i cant feel safe with utensils in car
bounce: the fear of it and the government losing legitimacy, yes. wasn't thinking just the economic side of things.
mircea_popescu: bounce it's not the month in jail, just like the problem with stealing isn't really that omg, someone's going to miss what you stole.
mircea_popescu: it's the fact that she now can't plan, because lo and behold, randomly sent to jail.
mircea_popescu: so why even bother with those violin classes she was saving up for ?
thickasthieves: music industry death by spoon
mircea_popescu: it's deeper than the govt legitimacy problem, too. it's the conventional nature of it that's the major destructive factor.
mircea_popescu: were she mauled by a savage beast, while unfortunate, it is quite natural.
mircea_popescu: but this is conventional and as such brings into question convention altgoether, as a device.

chetty: (we leave out the month she probably ought to get for eating that crud, but I digress)
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: bounce to rehash a limb of the previous discussion, you maybe heard that the best way to sink a good start-up is a bad revenue source early on. same thing with your thief : the opportunity cost of being a criminal is major in that you don't feel as much pressure to develop more useful traits.
mircea_popescu: for instance, hand't i been a gangster when i was in my teens, i could have gone to school, where i'd have learned many valuable skills and in time maybe even ended up a major revolutionary entrepreneur.
mircea_popescu: the moral of this koan being that nothing is quantifiable, except for the things which are already : energy and matter. not space, not time, not the chain of causality.
bounce: well, if you go there I say "uncertainty principle" and energy and matter go out the window too
mircea_popescu: nope.

bounce: or we could consider that accounting seems pretty solid on the outside but then proceeds to consist of lots and lots of handwaving. "what's this worth? well, uhm... how about $thismuch?"

chetty: accounting, also know as legerdemain
bounce: could even work out what's supposed to be the optimal speed through the system and so what the size of the various budgets like for forensic labs should be

punkman: bounce, perfect
hanbot: lol punkman. financial aid dorm, now with free cams.
asciilifeform: the 'sex contract' app may be lame - but there's an actual market for solving actual problem there.
asciilifeform: unfortunately the only pill against the problem is: suitcase, airplane, new (non-usaschwitz) passport.
asciilifeform: there's an interesting set of legal precedents in usa, invalidating any and all concept of sex contract (consent can be withdrawn, e.g., five minutes... 'in' - and thereby, retroactively, if you like, because 'i cancelled five minutes in, in my head, after that it was a rape') etc.
mats_cd03: not just usa. ask mr. assange
dignork: punkman: not sure about legality, but there is a cypherpunk solution: video recording crypted by 3 keys (Shamir's scheme), 2 keys needed to decode, 1 key at court, 2 other keys are of the involved parties
dignork: doesn't scale to group sex though
asciilifeform: 'usaschwitz' should be understood to mean all of nato and quasi-nato u.s. colonies.
hanbot: asciilifeform> unfortunately the only pill against the problem is: suitcase, airplane, new (non-usaschwitz) passport << which is why using app as palliative is particularly heinous (or particularly attractive depending on user sanity)
asciilifeform: hanbot: this is reminiscent of the debate regarding whether folks being burned at the stake should or should not get a little sack of gunpowder to wear around their neck
asciilifeform: hanbot: or whether folks sentenced to sit on a stake should get oiled or not oiled stake.
bounce: so, where do I pull me some new non-tainted passports out of the passport dispenser?
asciilifeform: bounce: 'if you gotta ask, answer is no' or something like that.
asciilifeform: (if i had answer, i'd be posting 'best of buenos aires restaurants' photos along with mircea_popescu)
hanbot: why not the debate regarding whether people drowning in puddles should be given a swat?
asciilifeform: basic mechanics of escape from a gravity well - and of escape from a country - are very similar, i dare say. you need sufficient energy (usually in the form of hard currency, but can be some unusual substitute like familial, mob, or military 'in
asciilifeform: ' connections)
asciilifeform: problem of escape is also usefully divisible into two distinct sub-problems - how to get out of X, and how to find Y such that you can eat there and avoid whatever it was that you weren't so fond of at X.
asciilifeform: -- also you will need to remove little embedded shrapnel of X from inside your head. this may be the hardest part for some people. visit, e.g, Brooklyn, New York to see what failure looks like here.
hanbot: never been stuck in a gravity well, but i find escape from most anything hinges on ability to recognize and part with things that aren't needed. escape based on what one'd rather keep/is fond of mostly consists of waiting afaik.

punkman: from over here, it looks to me like half of you wannabe escapees just love murica too much to leave
asciilifeform: folks who actually want to escape from -everything-... fellate their pistols. a more selective solution - takes finesse and resources.
asciilifeform: punkman: i personally don't know anyone in love with the geography. but people do get attached to food, shelter.
hanbot: <asciilifeform> -- also you will need to remove little embedded shrapnel of X from inside your head. this may be the hardest part for some people << always a bitch. the good kind, tho'.
asciilifeform: most people in usa understand that no one, across any ocean, is holding his breath waiting for them.
hanbot: food and shelter are a lot easier to acquire when you let go of stuff you don't need. that latter part tends to be harder.
asciilifeform: hanbot: if you've the time - elaborate. which things ought people let go of ?
asciilifeform: hanbot: if you meant luxuries - cars, houses, etc. - americans are having a fine time 'letting go' of these, with a little help from an imploding economy and hungry creditors...
hanbot: well naturally varies from one person to the next. if there were an omnipotent list it'd effectively remove the likely most widespread item: fear.
asciilifeform: hanbot: dare i ask, what did you personally let go of.
hanbot: in terms of physical stuff i left the us with a suitcase. more important imo was actually letting go of the place itself and one's place within it --possibly never to be reunited.
hanbot: kinda like getting served a bad meal at some restaurant and deciding you're not going there anymore, whether it's the only restaurant in town or not, whether that's where all your friends go, etc.
asciilifeform: hanbot: with the exception of hereditary peasants, bound to the soil, etc - can't picture who is attached to the 'place' per se
asciilifeform: hanbot: friends - sure. (though they are still your friends, presumably, over telegraph)
hanbot: eh, it's hard for people not to take it personally. i won't eat their sammiches, ergo i despise them!
hanbot: and it may not be the place per se, love for a certain avenue or whatnot, but fear of what's left when x certification or y language mastery doesn't matter so much anymore.
asciilifeform: hanbot: i suspect that it isn't leaving with suitcase that bothers people, but for the most part a rational calculation of whether leaving would in fact give them increased freedom - or not - to do the kind of things they actually want to do.
hanbot: hehe how's one supposed to do such rational calculations from inside a closed box?
asciilifeform: hanbot: usually, by the time leaving seems like a good idea regardless, it is far too late.
asciilifeform: hanbot: sometimes, calculation is fairly simple. you're in a box. outside - vacuum of far space.
asciilifeform: hanbot: so you stay in.
asciilifeform: hanbot: possibly try to construct a suit, sure. but not going into vacuum until suit is reasonably airtight.
punkman: so it's a rationalizing calculation :P
asciilifeform: punkman: rationalizing << let's have the harsh light of the cold truth, then..?
hanbot: well if you can and want to use assumptions about the space outside, that works. the problem is those assumptions may well be poor given data collection capabilities from inside the box, and for all you know you're being fed data to make you toil over impossible suits for the purpose of keeping you inside.
punkman: asciilifeform: what the hell do I know, I'm far away
asciilifeform: hanbot: i can only speak for myself, really, but i do have a fairly solid picture of what kind of life folks with profession similar to my own live, in various parts of the world, and how much sweat they must sweat, vs. i at my duties, and so forth.
asciilifeform: i should probably point out that unlike many people i know in usa, i'm generally more interested in aggregate free time than usual luxuries. this gives me a somewhat perverse incentive structure.
bounce: thou shalt consuuuuuuuuuume
asciilifeform: happy to consume: food, water, plenty of mains current, the occasional bit of scrap metal.
bounce: the state religion for domestic consumtion (the pun is mandatory, citizen). the one for export is called "democracy". and the motivation is "let's find us something to make war against"
bounce: apparently that's all they need to keep ticking.
asciilifeform: the picture of usa 'ticking' because of some abstract ideal like 'war' or 'consumption' is mistake. rather it's more like the tissues of a corpse that can ferment anaerobically, living on for days or even weeks past burial
hanbot: asciilifeform well that's cool, gotta work with what you've got and all. if what you've got is profession-dictated structure, then sure, i can see it. it's an uncomfortable thought but at some point it may become necessary to weigh the importance of that structure against the importance of freedom.
hanbot: which reminds me, recall mircea_popescu's bit with the captured mouse in the jar?

hanbot: soft nose ---> sharp metal points repeatedly probably not in his manual
bounce: the state doesn't seem quite dead yet. crumbling, grasping, but not quite dead yet.
asciilifeform: hanbot: it isn't really a 'profession structure' in my case. yes, for some people, 'i'm a lawyer and without that i'm nothing, where's my pistol' etc. these folks dropped like flies in '90s russia, say. but i'm more of - 'if i can move across the sea, but have to work as shoemaker in a cellar for 12h day, instead of 'turning the right screw' here in usa, why do i need to buy plane ticket? i can do the shoemaker th
xanthyos: ;;later tell davidldubuc glad you dug your private key out of that train station dumpster.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
hanbot: ah, so not an issue of "can't" then, but of not being worth it? well that's perfectly sound. most people i talk to about leaving the us are on the "can't" wagon.
asciilifeform: hanbot: technically, anyone who can scrape together the loose change for a plane ticket - and can physically get to airport - 'can.'
asciilifeform: hanbot: just like the fellow in space capsule, simply can open air lock and see the stars.
hanbot: yes, but in their own minds. they'll contract flesh-eating muggerbugs or w/e and not be able to find any toilet paper.

xanthyos: haven't heard from stander since nitrogensports.eu opened and had a promised 5 btc freeroll on opening night, then was conveniently ddossed, and promises a 10 btc freeroll that has yet to be scheduled
danielpbarron: hah!
xanthyos: basically i think they never intended a 5 btc freeroll, they were hoping to sign up a lot of a ccounts in the run-up to a big freeroll, and hope that some account generators would then deposiot
hanbot: asciilifeform incidentally this has left me wondering what free time is worth if you don't perceive that you're free. if you can still do all you want to do, though, great!

atcbot: No data returned from X-BT.com
asciilifeform: hanbot: for me, it's the question of imprisoned now or later.

xanthyos: jsut a theory
danielpbarron: p.good theory
asciilifeform: hanbot: if i had to do a conventional 'job', with physical movement and shifts, the kind that actually leaves you tired at the end of a day - that'd be much like prison.
asciilifeform: hanbot: mircea_popescu was once puzzled why people will break their backs to make pennies 'while they sleep.' i always understood why.
danielpbarron: i like being tired at the end of the day; it's the all-year-long monotony of "conventional" jobs that I loath
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: tired is fine when you tired because you were acting on own volition.
danielpbarron nods
hanbot is attempting to sort out the transactional mess here
asciilifeform: hanbot: you were not mistaken in figuring that i'm one of the people weighed down by addiction to luxuries. but the only luxury i really give a damn about is free time.
bounce was just reading a text about buddhism, from some tibetan guy went and lived in the yoosah. said it was all about freedom. and that it's all in your mind. that's right, freedom in your mind. -- maybe this'll go over better if actually imprisoned in the yoosah, maybe.

asciilifeform: perhaps also worth noting is that, imho, 'free time' is not only a freedom to act, but having with what to act. hence there is a difference between the free time of prisoner and non-prisoner.
mats_cd03: so lets cut to the chase. do you have a number for your 'fuck you money'?
xanthyos: !up bagels7
hanbot: so if i'm condensing this correctly, you want time in which to not be told what to do (free time), for which you must pay with an overarching adherence to what you're told to do (living in us)?
asciilifeform: mats_cd03: depends on hypothetical destination. but, overall, just picture a figure large enough to 'become taleb' and live as 'gentleman scholar' in total disconnect from economic reality around you.

asciilifeform: notice that 'wait to be lifted' isn't on the list. no one steals a cheetah except to place in another zoo.
thickasthieves: some cheetahs are used for gene diversification
thickasthieves: notexactly a zoo, but similar in practice
asciilifeform: thickasthieves: that would fall under 'other zoo' scenario, no ?
thickasthieves: in the end yeah, many such conservations even have tours...
hanbot: did the ELF never steal a cheetah?
asciilifeform: steal and turn loose in africa, or on city streets ? makes a difference.
hanbot: eh i guess they didn't (searching turns up some delightful headlines however, incl. "Rx Generic Viagra - The Parrot Liberation Front"). anyway, i suppose he's free to die trying.
