PeterL: Mich State got a better bowl
BingoBoingo: For some definitions of better. Good for them.
PeterL: Mizzou should win
BingoBoingo: They better. We need to start recruiting 300 pounders for our lines so maybe next time we can actually make plays against Alabama by means other than accident.
BingoBoingo: !up jborkl

hanbot: why 2000?
iang: the earliest key I have a password for, it seems
iang: or, the earliest that the current keyring admits to.
hanbot: oh that. still, 2000 much better than nothing.
BingoBoingo: Not everybody rocks at data retention.
iang: some things should stay buried under rocks
hanbot: not one's past.
iang: In 2000 I was building precious metal exchanges. And staying out of trouble. Which almost snapped shut on me, the whole e-gold story :(
iang: Luckily I’d sent an email to the founders that said “you’re gonna get busted if you don’t fix it” and that told the feds I wasn’t their drone
iang: back in the days when we had only single servers and only single operators and only tunnel vision
BingoBoingo: Ah, I had recently discovered hypercard around that time
iang: rings a bell! remind me?
undata: non-web hyperlink programming environment for the mac
BingoBoingo: iang: It's the programming environment that shipped on the last of the real Macs. I had picked some up at an auction my school had and was playing with them as my first computers

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i must confess that i sometimes regret crapping out that piece. i still get mail from folks who think that i liked 'hypertalk' language.
hanbot: oh you didn't?
BingoBoingo: The language itself sucked
asciilifeform: ding ding ding prize
undata: truly wretched syntax
undata: trying to be like natural language
asciilifeform: it was quite educational in that respect (in the sense of demonstrating, to anyone with half a brain, the inescapable folly of 'natural language' programming)
BingoBoingo: the environment, and the potential of the environment...

assbot: Improvments to RNG · 98d5a7c · blockchain/My-Wallet · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1G8kZ82 )
asciilifeform: actually i did not (as an adult, at least) see any actual 'potential' in it - in the sense of 'what could have grown from it'
asciilifeform: more as a demonstration of how a programming system ought to behave in the general sense
BingoBoingo: But as a demonstration.
BingoBoingo: The only environment I've ever been similarly confident with was the old "Hot Dog HTML" that was included on the web design for dummies book cd at the local library
mircea_popescu: iang well alternatively there's always the half year's lurking an' reading logs.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, until such a time as natural language works for coding, there won't be the "evil ai" whatever guy's worried about.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: as a boy, i often thought that i would grow up, 'have money', and buy an apple computer - at least to try it (the crippled machines at schools, etc. were an interesting diversion, and i imagined that mac is 'rich man's computer' somehow) ☟︎
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 23906 @ 0.0005079 = 12.1419 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: didn't happen. not that i don't own enough junk, incl. apples of every period, to fill a small scrapyard - but i wanted living 'butterfly' not zoological specimen preserved in glass
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the company 'apple' died, in '99, replaced silently with 'next'. but you knew this.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Summer before college I though I'd buy a new Apple on their financing, had not realized company had died. Mercifully was declined and got a used Dell Latitude.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'natural language' for a program makes the same amount of sense as for mathematics. atrociously inefficient and requires very 'unnatural' concessions of rigour or at least standardized disambiguations.
mircea_popescu: yes but you're aware i was discussing danger.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is probably thinking of a hypothetical machine that emulates a living programmer and can be 'made friends with' and spoken to, describing what he wants. in that case - yes
mircea_popescu: a purely mathematical language won't ever matter politically.
BingoBoingo: Didn't realize apple died till junior year of college when I got an iPod to replace a Rio MP3 player and was introduced to iTunes
asciilifeform: what means 'matter politically' ?
asciilifeform: used by men fighting one another?
asciilifeform: in that case even 'visual basic' qualifies!
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: it is interesting to see how apple corp. (the renamed 'next', not the original) put to use its total monopoly in portable computerized gadgets not immediately discardable as junk to push perverse anachronisms that would have been laughed off if from another (weird proprietary cabling, required closed-source 'sync' apps, etc.)
mircea_popescu: http://cdn.collarspace.com/photos/2036091.jpg << said ai.
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1G8mMcY )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, to be its own thing, posing a threat.
mircea_popescu: who was that guy all worried about hostile ai ?
undata: elon musk and stephen hawking have been saying things
asciilifeform: yudkowsky et al ?
mircea_popescu: right.
undata: yudkowsky worships at its altar
asciilifeform: undata: mr y is the master octopus
mircea_popescu: they're thinking of a politically relevant ai.
mircea_popescu: that's different from a mathematically bound ai, no matter how clever
asciilifeform: the others - simply read nth-generation spew from him
mircea_popescu: perhaps this latter also different from a purely numeric ai
undata: I'm personally much more near-term concerned with ever-cheaper guns/bombs with propellers
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Apple, the heritage company was never entirely innocent on the cabling front (Apple desktop bus, etc) The portable gadgets yes did demand a still more grotesque submission. Thankfully pawn shops love Apple shit.
undata: things which take lat/lng and desired size of crater as input
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mr y & friends believe in an ai equivalent of fermi's 'ignition of the atmosphere' hypothetical catastrophe.
mircea_popescu: undata there's excellent reasons not to worry about that.
cazalla: BingoBoingo: The only environment I've ever been similarly confident with was the old "Hot Dog HTML" that was included on the web design for dummies book cd at the local library <<< lol sausage software, my uncle never shut up about these guys
asciilifeform: if you give a damn re: what this means, invite one of them in. i can't muster the strength to defend the nonsense, even as 'devil's advocate'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally, you know said ignition happened once already.
asciilifeform: 'bang' ?
asciilifeform: not really analogous, if it
BingoBoingo: cazalla: Compared to the adobe turds at the highschool it was elegant

iang: yah. I remember (one of?) the last person I used to talk regularly with gpg would make keys every month and dispose of the old ones. I only talked to him maybe once a month so it didn’t last...
asciilifeform: disposed of old before - or after - signing key[n] with key[n-1]
asciilifeform: ?
iang: oh, after, kept a merry chain posting into perpetuity
asciilifeform: then why problem ?
BingoBoingo: iang: Current best practice seems to be gen RSA/RSA and just make the it huge
iang: well, every month I’d send him an email and he’d send me back a request to use his new key :)
BingoBoingo: iang: Have you seen http://nosuchlabs.com/ yet?
iang: BingoBoingo: yup. I guess everyone’s got the message that the threat is on the node.
BingoBoingo: iang: yeah. I can see monthly pub key updates being a hassel if your big GPG use case is signatures
iang: ha, no. Is that based on the RNG problems that various platforms had?
BingoBoingo: iang: It's actually one of alf's toys
asciilifeform: not advertised, on account of being (so far) a null result

fluffypony: well
punkman: it was already there because of gribble and #bitcoin-otc
fluffypony: yeah
cazalla: i loves me some ransomware
punkman: and it's a good idea
fluffypony: taking a step back
fluffypony: in the beginning when OTC (over the counter) trades with Bitcoin were more prevalent than crappy / scammy exchanges there was a need for an expression of trust relationships
fluffypony: so nanotube, bless his shiny metal heart, created gribble
fluffypony: a bot that allows any registered IRC user to further register with the Bitcoin-OTC WoT
punkman: gribble exists before otc I think
fluffypony: either using Bitcoin message signing
fluffypony: or using GPG
fluffypony: the WoT is a separate entity to the GPG WoT, of course
fluffypony: and GPG is purely used for identify verification
fluffypony: this channel has taken the WoT and used it for a purpose beyond OTC trades
fluffypony: and that is: to vastly increase the SNR by only allowing those in an extended trust network (up to level 2 from the point of origin, that is assbot's level 1 trust group) to talk
fluffypony: of course, those that aren't in that trust group can be given the privilege of temporary voice (30 minutes) by anyone within the trust group

mircea_popescu: <Pierre_Rochard> for many of the redditards it is a ~feels~ social movement, rather than a macro-economic force of nature << like everything else. like, that's all they got.
mircea_popescu: "When those voices are the only ones heard, it makes wider adoption and acceptance less likely." <<< so says... who ?
mircea_popescu: and htey know... how ?
mircea_popescu: the self-feeding circle of shit. "shit out because shit in because shit out because shit in because..."

mircea_popescu: <thestringpuller> is it weird << notrly. like you know, if you hear a "sailor" talk about "Ships falling off the earth margin" you can also suspect they're the 15yo fibbing variety of seawolf.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, hence all teh soviet shiteating jokes.
mircea_popescu: it's like a strange attractor of peronist discourse.
mircea_popescu: mats> relying on a source that's been tortured, now, thats not useful, but thats why you verify the information... << it's complicated. generally, by the time you have to torture people you're dead in the water.
mircea_popescu: it's like saying "wifebeating works as a matrimonial pacification tool".
mircea_popescu: i... guess ? if you think so ?
mircea_popescu: notrlytho.
mircea_popescu: <mats> i get the impression that most americans accept as fact that torture is ineffective << for sure. do you know what else they accept ? that "free markets don't work" and that "socialism is democracy" and all sorts of similar things. do you know why they accept them ? because they want to believe. 16 yo 7/10 valley girl also believes she's "beautiful" and that "she really has a chance". why wouldn't she, as far as
mircea_popescu: she's concerned.
mircea_popescu: <mats> in my opinion, this is a fundamentally irreconcilable difference between govt agents and intel agents << idealised intel agents. like idealised doctors or lawyers, doing "liberal professions". like naggum's idealised "real programmers". problem is, these people don't exist in the counts you might wish to employ. they exist in short supply.

mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> - that is, who do you wish to see win? <<< seems rather uncontroversial by now that the us is a rogue state. at least to my eyes. but in two years of this we've yet to meet somerone who actually believes the us to be anything but a criminal organisation.
mircea_popescu: perhaps with the exception of the bluemeanie guy :D
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: quite a few folks say 'well yes, criminal' but for some reason refuse to walk the logical implication, a -> b..

mircea_popescu: what reason dja think that is.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: because of the inevitable question, then, 'well what do i personally do now, seppuku?' that follows
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: closing eyes is the last refuge of the truly and genuinely fucked
mircea_popescu: which is of course silly.
mircea_popescu: plenty of women woke up one day to discover they married an asshole over the endless count of years.
mircea_popescu: none of them actually had to hang themselves for this lapse in their youthful judgement,
mircea_popescu: or, as the case may be, in their parents'.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: most u.s. subjects don't have an obvious rational action to follow the awakening of 'aha so i'm living in a zoo run by demented vivisectionists, now i need to...'
