asciilifeform caught up on log... finally
decimation: asciilifeform: the question in my mind is the concept of 'title' without reference to the state. it seems to me that it is meaningless outside a particular legal code
decimation: or perhaps resolves to 'imma kill u 'n take ur stuff'
asciilifeform: decimation: meaningless without state as far as i can see
asciilifeform: not necessarily the modern totalitarian monstrosity. but state in some form
asciilifeform: or at least a coalition of folks who are able to penalize you for violating the title (could wot do this? possibly)
asciilifeform not expert on the practical mechanics of electric feudalism
decimation: heh.
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=22-03-2015#1064364 << constructive title. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 22-03-2015 23:54:57; asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the problem is they didn't have title << does a suitcase full of benjies have 'title' ? or a tonne of gold bar? or not because fungible
mircea_popescu: which is why the whole "confiscated cash in drug bust" thing.
mircea_popescu: note that i'm not saying anything about what's useful, merely going through how the logic of that thing works.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i always read it as 'plebe may not possess allocatory capital tokens' thing
asciilifeform: (which a sufficiently heavy bag of benjies would in principle be)
mircea_popescu: well, you can read it any way you want, but legally, it flows from "title is title, if you don't have title you may use constructive title (possession is 9/10 of the law and all that), except so and so"
asciilifeform: was picasso listed as an 'except so' ?
asciilifeform ianal
mircea_popescu: "except so and so" = "except if it seems to come from drugdealing"
asciilifeform: any fr jurists here? davout ?
mircea_popescu: but that's the font of all the "prove you didn't steal it" thing.
asciilifeform: are picassos presumed to come from dope work ?
mircea_popescu: that's not the controlling bit. the controlling bit is, "can you prove this is yours ?"
asciilifeform unable to find 'constructive title' in reference; only found 'constructive possession'
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13750 @ 0.00027062 = 3.721 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: i made up the term for this discussion.
asciilifeform: l0l
mircea_popescu: prolly shoulda added scarequotes.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: so, under this concept, if cannot prove that it is yours, it reverts to the last registered owner?
mircea_popescu: yep
mircea_popescu: which is why the picassos aren't going to the state, but to the heirs.
asciilifeform: except they did go to the state. the heirs, note, didn't show up with rifle to take it
asciilifeform: the state helpfully did it for them
mircea_popescu: how's that relevant ?
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=23-03-2015#1064373 << might be exactly the problem, on superficial perusal of the literature. ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 23-03-2015 00:00:17; asciilifeform: too few balls, they have, to utter 'an ought' straight up
asciilifeform: that it was servants of the crown who not only showed up to dekulakize the electrician, but handed out jail term
asciilifeform: but i get the legal fiction involved, yes
mircea_popescu: aite then
mircea_popescu: but yes, the entire "taint" bullshit does not work. the correct avenue is exactly the reverse : require to be paid only in "proper" bitcoin, that is to say, bitcoin traceable to X or Y or Z purchase, from agent of the crown, which fictitiously has title. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: in this view of Bitcoin, only Draper has any, or whoever bought it from USG. ☟︎
asciilifeform: seems like inevitably will be tried
mircea_popescu: sort-of like a usg-run laundromat.
mircea_popescu: likely, yeah.
asciilifeform: didn't this already have one go around ?
asciilifeform: some idiot had 'whitelist'
mircea_popescu: not afaik.,
asciilifeform distinctly recalls
asciilifeform: !s whitelisting

asciilifeform: !s whitelist
assbot: 50 results for 'whitelist' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=whitelist
mircea_popescu: but it jives very well with "so what if we can't control bitcoin - it'd divisible, so let's just carve a kiddy pool and play in there! "
asciilifeform: !s taxcoin
assbot: 2 results for 'taxcoin' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=taxcoin
decimation: luke-jr was kinda advocating the blacklist if I recall
decimation: !up Luke-Jr
decimation: didn't you advance a blacklist in gentoo?
funkenstein_: actually that kinda makes more sense than a separate fedcoin
asciilifeform: iirc he understood that other folks would choose to relay the 'bad' tx
Luke-Jr: what blacklist are you claiming I advocate?
Luke-Jr: decimation: no
asciilifeform: but wanted to make some kind of statement against dice
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fedcoin carved from bitcoin is missing key feature for them - forced transfer
asciilifeform: what do they do when it is time to confiscate? revoke the blessing on the coin? this doesn't move it back into the state coffer
asciilifeform: nor enabled them to mint debased coin at will
asciilifeform: an altcoin (with some form of key escrow) still seems likely imho
asciilifeform: (as a candidate for 'fedcoin')
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform suppose they make a few peers that use Luke-Jr style rules, and then ddos the ~60 or so remaining nodes.
mircea_popescu: there's a reason usgavin & co pretend like nodes are not important while trying to make them not feasible.
mircea_popescu: sadly for that party the attempt to do so quietly failed catastrophically, but what's that mean ?
funkenstein_: you don't have to ddos the remaining nodes.. just declare your colored coins to be worth 10x the others
mircea_popescu: ...
asciilifeform: in exchange for freshly printed green
asciilifeform: funkenstein_ has it
decimation: usg could just arrest/seize/forfeit nodes it doesn't like
mircea_popescu: or at any rate try.
asciilifeform: it is worth asking what usg would be trying to accomplish with fedcoin
mircea_popescu: but notice that the people who do not suffer from that famous " pathologically difficult attitude toward various important software development philosophy " will not have much problems using usg-nodes anyway
mircea_popescu: and so...
asciilifeform: for some purposes 'colouring' existing btc as funkenstein_ described would work
asciilifeform: and less noise, less fuss, than gasenwagen
asciilifeform: 'woah my shit is worth 10x, sell' goes typical lamer
funkenstein_: like newton did with gold
mircea_popescu: the only purpose it would really work for is, giving us a lot of weaponry to kill them with
decimation: asciilifeform: but then usg is stuck with backing dollars with bitcoin
mircea_popescu: which is why i kinda suspect it's inevitable.
funkenstein_: i think this is a post dollar discussion
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the kill shot would involve an 'arse-mouth system', no?
mircea_popescu: everything since 2009 or so is a post-dollar discussion.
asciilifeform: where 1) idiot fed pays 10x 2) mr jihad buys 10x normal coin 3) ??? 4) go to 1
funkenstein_: wish i was here earlier :)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dunno, they bought isis the weapons and then they bought isis the meatsacks to practice shooting round tikrit.
mircea_popescu: seems to me they mostly buy us shit, so.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 100% same as afghan campaign '03-present
decimation: well, people in ohio need jobs see...
mircea_popescu: right, so why would one expect different ?
asciilifeform: but i can see the 'win' from afghan - lockheed, grumman, halliburton, general dynamics, etc. get to churn inventory
asciilifeform: the actual purpose of every usg mil engagement since korea
asciilifeform: but what'd be the 'win' here ?

mircea_popescu: i dunno, draper gets to pretend like he's a savvy businessman ?
mircea_popescu: after pretending like he bought bitcoin ?
mircea_popescu: gotta keep the pretense up.
decimation: I just thought of a brilliant anti-'area denial' (to usg term) weapon system. imagine a small turboprop uav ... that can drop its wings and turn into kerosene rocket
asciilifeform: as i understand, operating with the 'monetary system as storage battery' model (mr mold's ?) usg has two possible (non-exclusive) agendas re: btc: 1) steal charge from the battery 2) blow up the battery
asciilifeform: ideally 1+2, i venture to guess, from their point of view
asciilifeform: but separable conceptually
mircea_popescu: neither works.
asciilifeform: sure - but which is the desired one
mircea_popescu: the only actually available thing is, print a "Obama made this lolz" sticker, try to affix.
asciilifeform: for the current set of lizardfolk
mircea_popescu: and so i imagine this is what they'll do.
asciilifeform: decimation: german 'v1'
decimation: moldbug thought the us would jail exchanges/possessors, but usg lost the initiative on that one
asciilifeform: decimation: actually they didn't need to jail - no one dared
asciilifeform: afaik
mircea_popescu: i told him he was wrong back then. sadly... as per the castrato model, never answered.
asciilifeform: to make a non-usg exchange in usa
decimation: kinda like a 'v1', but with the appropriate tracking/seeking system, and an entire fleet in orbit around 'La Serenissima'
asciilifeform: thing is, there are multiple overlapping fields of fire re: usg vs exchanges. e.g., banks monitor -all- incoming and outgoing flow
asciilifeform: decimation: pertinent thread: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com//?date=26-11-2014#934786 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 26-11-2014 00:46:13; asciilifeform: have to understand, jet fighter is not really a complete machine. it is a tentacle of the larger industrial slave empire which produced and employed it.
decimation: yes, presumes the ability to manufacture jet parts
decimation: not a 'partizan' system
asciilifeform: aviation, by and large, only works when you're a mega-state with maxint constantly replaced slaves to parasitise
asciilifeform: decimation: make me so much as a transistor circa 1950 with partizan tech.
decimation: I would settle for a partizan bank
funkenstein_: transistor tech has changed a bit in 40 years, jet engines not so much
decimation: as I recall the 'v1' had no moving parts
asciilifeform: fine. make a me262 with jungle tech.
decimation: hehe yea not me262 though
asciilifeform: or even the same 'v1'
asciilifeform: or hell, a single ak round.
decimation: at a minimum you would need fairly modern metallurgy
asciilifeform: most folks who go in for this line of thought, have no idea how much industry is baked into even something like an ak round.
decimation: yeah, especially if you want to make it 'from ore'
asciilifeform: no need to pontificate - the folks in palestine are playing 'junkyard wars' warfare as we speak
asciilifeform: check out what kind of weapons they fight with.
decimation: old busted ex soviet stuff welded to toyotas, etc
asciilifeform: well, to be fair, they have rockets made from old plumbing
asciilifeform: but iirc that's the top of their game
asciilifeform: (with respect to self-made items)
decimation: or your 'recoiless rifles'
asciilifeform: those - imported.
decimation: as are the actually effective guided rockets
decimation: although I think a guided rocket is more likely to be manufactured by a 'partizan' than bullets actually
asciilifeform: marginally.
decimation: still would need good metal and precision milling
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4518 @ 0.00027062 = 1.2227 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: and good post-metalwork process (temper)
asciilifeform: incidentally, this is yet another reason why i try to convince folks to read about electrolytic milling
asciilifeform: (afaik a soviet-only technology, to date, at least in the sense of general-purpose multi-axis milling rather than glorified casting - all you'll find on the subject in english)
asciilifeform: electrolysis doesn't give a flying fuck about temper
asciilifeform: or hardness of the material in general, so long as it conducts
decimation: does it work on Al with the oxide layer?
asciilifeform: hence you can use pre-tempered whatevers (car axles, etc.) and go straight to $weaponpart
asciilifeform: decimation: with a little chemical magic, yes

BingoBoingo: decimation: More interesting is how the reach 18 karats by... bulking up the "gold" with high volume low density ceramics as the alloying agent.
BingoBoingo: Lightest 18k gold around
decimation: BingoBoingo: according to that page they are not using that patented ceramic procedure, but are instead using an alloy with 'work hardening' "For the Watch Edition however, Apple appears to have eschewed any revolutionary alchemy and instead, applied an innovative work hardening process to create gold that is (claimed to be) significantly harder than the typical 18kt used by other watchmakers. "

decimation: I'm not denying it's pretty, just impractical for its stated purpose

brendafdez: History
brendafdez: The first park to use the name was Coney Island's second major amusement park, designed by Frederic Thompson and Elmer "Skip" Dundy and opened in 1903. They named the park after the spaceship in their Pan-American Exposition ride "A Trip to the Moon".[1][2]

Adlai: bitproof has an interface for 'signing' using the mouse
Adlai always found those somewhere between amusing and horrifying
mircea_popescu: no no this is smart : it encrypts to YOUR key.
mircea_popescu: as in, random derp w/o gpg installed wants to send mp stuff encrypted to mp's key, there's page on mp's site with javascript
punkman: the problem is how do you communicate to derps that they should use actual PGP for the "important" stuff
mircea_popescu: "Networking Software for Windows" you know ?
mircea_popescu: i suppose the communication starts with "gtfo off windoze"
Adlai only refers people to hanewin after explaining that they're just trusting some random site, instead of google or facebook
Adlai: but many people prefer trusting random strangers over known evils
mircea_popescu: technically, it's js, so they're not trusting the site.
punkman: if they have to mitm the javascript, sure that does raise the cost, but is it worth the false sense of security
Adlai: you could probably give this audience an identical security theater with js that sends plaintext
Adlai: speaking of encryption: https://blog.bitproof.io/we-3-encryption/
assbot: We <3 encryption ... ( http://bit.ly/1xcPiKf )
mircea_popescu: punkman probably cheapest approach to diddle the js to encrypt to two keys. transparent enough to do, and then get somewhere else the msg.
mircea_popescu: still, more pgp flowing through the tubes is a net gain
mircea_popescu: anyway, i didn't know about it b4.
punkman: on that note, Enigmail has warning message that they will only support gpg2 soon
Adlai: a few darknet markets have used such a system too, which raises the question of why anyderpy used any of the markets that didn't
punkman: mircea_popescu: we've linked to gpg JS implementations so many times, I thought this use case was obvious

bitstein: Is there a reason WoT ratings are not required to be GPG signed?

thestringpuller: cause you are authenticating with a GPG interface

danielpbarron: you have it backwards

ascii_field remembers about his unfinished 'hardwired peers' patch for 0.5.3
mircea_popescu: ascii_field and the "introduce scoring for peers, shitlist least performing for x interval" idea from earlier, same thread.
ben_vulpes: murder on my mind.
brendafdez: re: Businesscards. I found a QR code with a BTC address, and now, also the GPG fingerprint, provide a good excuse to hand it out without sounding like you're forcing them. "Where do I send the btc?" --"Here!" (:
ascii_field: i'll sum it up here. 1) sane node -always, without exception- connects to as many wot nodes as are up 2) then possibly connects to others from cache
ben_vulpes: is redundant block downloading a horrible idea?
mircea_popescu: no.
ben_vulpes: perhaps to reduce bw waste, randomly ask for n-plicate copies of blocks from other nodes?
ben_vulpes: "randomly"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes the only reasonable way to go about it is, pretend the other nodes are your employees. measure the txn bytes/minute you receive from them, give points.
mircea_popescu: problem solves itself. whether they duplicate or not is a byproduct : competition, economical.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: measure the txn bytes/minute you receive from them << won't work for 0.5.3 as presently exists. bastard blocks -get transmitted- before rejected
mircea_popescu waits patiently for the vc funded, world changing "start-up" predicated on having read the above lines in the log.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field i was talking more in terms of how it's supposed to go. i'm aware the current pos is a pos.
ben_vulpes: "this one neat trick to speed up blockchain sync time!"
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes and also, on my personal wishlist : could block generation finally be fucking fixed ?
ben_vulpes: what's wrong with it?
mircea_popescu: i was nonplussed that i can't make blocksized txn in 2012, i still am nonplussed.
mircea_popescu: if i want to make a txn that's 1mb, i do. ☟︎
ben_vulpes: oh hm.
ben_vulpes: that's deeeeeeep in the transaction creation code iirc.
mircea_popescu: it's a total fucking pain when stuff like, payout of the bfl bitbet happens
mircea_popescu: or recently, berkshire.
mircea_popescu: yes i know. that pile of dung has to be exorcised.
ascii_field: fastest way for mircea_popescu to do this is, unfortunately but probably, to wait for my version.
mircea_popescu: i been waitin' a long time honey!
ascii_field: (or write himself. anyone's bet who wins)
mircea_popescu: literally, 2012.
mircea_popescu: (mp fondly remembers how he's one of the... one guy that hit the power rangers over the head until they finally put encryption into wallets. which, prior to mid 2012, were plaintext)
ascii_field: (i like how it occurred to no one to ask why 1mb tx)
mircea_popescu: (and i'm not entirely sure that encryption's worth jack shit, by the way, if someone feels like reading it)
ascii_field: generic aes
mircea_popescu: and what, can't be subtly fucked up ?
ascii_field: sure it can
mircea_popescu: besides, fucking aes.
ascii_field: calls out to openssl even
ben_vulpes: i don't see why not.
ben_vulpes: i don't see why plaintext is so bad, i mean to say.
ben_vulpes: but that's probably stockhol.
ben_vulpes: stockholm.
mircea_popescu: it's stockholm.
ben_vulpes: encrypt wallet with gpg, move to safe location on disk, run without hot wallet.
ascii_field: ben_vulpes does not keep 'wallet' around. he memorizes private key
ben_vulpes: stop bitcoind, move wallet back in, restart, sync wallet txns periodically.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes don't forget to encrypt your privkey ring with gpg too
ben_vulpes: ya well duh.
mircea_popescu: because they ALSO didnt see why it's so bad
ben_vulpes: symmetric in my brain.
ben_vulpes: its really the only sane model.
mircea_popescu: look, you're spewing nonsense. think in simple terms : if wallet is encrypted by program using it, then it can be read by program using it, and kernel.
ascii_field: no shit
mircea_popescu: if wallet is encrypted in useralnd, then it's read by gpg
mircea_popescu: and everyone else.
mircea_popescu: including... the disk.
mircea_popescu: and so on and so forth.
ascii_field: incidentally (i wrote) a neat little proof of concept bin patch for bitcoind on winblows.
ben_vulpes: i've always assumed that if someone got access to the machine while hot, the coins were gone regardless.
ascii_field: the first outgoing tx sent by the luser after it goes to addr A
ascii_field: (magic constant)
ascii_field: notice how much good the wallet crypto does him.
ascii_field: oh and sends whole wallet's weight of course
mircea_popescu: ascii_field you know im not proposing quinine solves gout over here.
ascii_field: aha
mircea_popescu: and your "poc" that "sends whole wallet" is going to run into some fucking lulzy problems once it gets implemented,
mircea_popescu: because no one knows what's in a wallet.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: think for a minute
ascii_field: doesn't send the file
mircea_popescu: but ?
ascii_field: creates a legit tx using the luser's own client
mircea_popescu: right
mircea_popescu: that says wut ?
mircea_popescu: whatever it may say, fuck you and a heap of error: {"code":-4,"message":"Transaction creation failed"}
ascii_field: that has [sum of his unspent coin - 0.1 fee] value, and is to addr A (constant) instead of wherever he asked for
mircea_popescu: if you imagine this "sum of unspent coin" symbol is defined...
brendafdez: I always wondered why negative error codes...
mircea_popescu: brendafdez correlates to iq.
brendafdez: (:
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: iterates, incr. fee, until no error
ascii_field: can't promise that it works for everyone.
mircea_popescu: np problem, well done.
mircea_popescu: "hey everyone since i installed alfbitcoin my system has been doing 100% cpu"
ascii_field: where's the np ?
mircea_popescu: in the fucking wallet.
ascii_field: theoretically a knapsack problem, yes
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's a reason wallet theft consisted of stealing the (plaintext) wallet file
ascii_field: but in practice quadratic.
mircea_popescu: rather than this sort of stuff. it's about 100x easier, given the sad state of bitcoind
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: and recipient does what?
ascii_field: he is also stuck with the knapsack
mircea_popescu: and people fail to think how important this is, because atm relatively few addresses (if you divide total btc to total addresses you get a .x ish average)
mircea_popescu: but once the average per address is under 0.0001... just you see quadratics then
ascii_field: then - yes
mircea_popescu: ascii_field yes but can do it in his own time.
mircea_popescu: with actual tools. etc.
ascii_field: who the hell has wallet full of nanodust also
mircea_popescu: EVERYONE
ben_vulpes: everyone.
ben_vulpes: well, most people.
mircea_popescu: i would guess more bitcoin has been loist to nanodusting than to outright laptop-in-garbage dump incidents
ascii_field: if so, it is on account of the idiocy where the client has no idea how to 'defragment'
ascii_field: and is averse to sending to himself
mircea_popescu: just, the owners still think they own the dust they can't actually send anywhere.
mircea_popescu: ascii_field not only that. the txn making is dust-agnostic. instead of optimizing to not create too small chunks, it just does whatever.
mircea_popescu: because "too hard".
mircea_popescu: meanwhile the fucktards are busy "innovating" bullshit.
mircea_popescu: the hard problems of bitcoin are still untouched since six yyears ago when satoshi saw them and ran screaming.
ascii_field: the most frustrating part is that the correct solutions are so obvious.
mircea_popescu: yeah, they are : go entertain cia over the weekend.
asciilifeform: !up ascii_field
ascii_field: l0l
ascii_field: i mean to say, they are actually obvious to anyone who stayed awake in junior 'algorithms'
mircea_popescu: nobody went to school.
mircea_popescu: they're all fucking experts.
ascii_field went to school
ascii_field: and nubbins` iirc
ascii_field: and a few others
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> ascii_field not only that. the txn making is dust-agnostic. instead of optimizing to not create too small chunks, it just does whatever. << aggressively whatever. semi random selection of outputs, iirc.
mircea_popescu: right.
ascii_field: i get it, it was written by monkeys
mircea_popescu: (honestly i've not really looked what they've been doing with it since 7ish)
ascii_field: mircea_popescu did not miss much
ascii_field: ben_vulpes has an exhaustive catalogue
mircea_popescu: ascii_field anyway, if you're curious, do a braid on a bitcoin then see what happens.
ascii_field: braid ?
ben_vulpes: hardly exhaustive.
mircea_popescu: (split it to three addresses, then feed one by two for a while)
mircea_popescu: then see what you can spend and what you can't.
mircea_popescu: this is the golden standard for testing txn generators.
mircea_popescu: or, closer to what you want, "then send it all to one address". see with own eyes.
ascii_field: i have this working for a [censored application] but it uses machine (outside of bitcoind) generated tx
mircea_popescu: yeah well, WHY IS THAT
ascii_field: and raw key material
mircea_popescu: alf trying to scam me in argument! "oh, bitcoind works. i think so because i don't use it because it doesn't"
ascii_field: l0l
ascii_field believes when mircea_popescu says that it -will- explode if used as printed on the crate
BingoBoingo: Well, sometimes it does
mircea_popescu: hence why we're terrorists.
ascii_field: likewise most of the folks here have read enough of it to see how this might be
BingoBoingo: Bitcoind (and a number of the other 'wallets') grind balances to dust over time. ☟︎
ascii_field: don't forget that this was -deliberate-
mircea_popescu: maybe.
ascii_field: phoundation justified it with 'bbbut an0nym1ty1111!!111'
mircea_popescu: this is way before vessenes was invented.
ascii_field: 'wouldn't want to link the coins you got from bin laden to the ones you got from george bush, when you go spend'em'
mircea_popescu: you for some reason seem to think scam foundation and bitcoin are cogenerational. this is about as true as saying you and your mom were born the same week
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: i formed this impression because i do not know the actual truth of the extent of collaboration between gavin et al and satoshi pre-phoundation
ascii_field: having contradictory data, assumed the worst.
mircea_popescu: fake foundation's just a pressed shitbullet, they made it, getting rid of it won't get rid of the problem.
mircea_popescu: it's exactly like "Bitcoin magazine", meanwhile buried.
ascii_field: i saw it as more of a snakeskin
mircea_popescu: once they didn't get away with simply stealing that, they made coindesk.
ascii_field: shed as many times as snake likes
mircea_popescu: which will be buried too, but... still. you don't kill ticks by breaking the bellies.
mircea_popescu: anyway, gavin showed up pretty quick o nthe original lists. to no one's suprirse, nsa does read the stuff, as amply documented.
ascii_field: so then.
mircea_popescu: foundation not directly related to this.
ascii_field saw phoundation and gavinatronics as mostly synonymous
ben_vulpes: he's a useful front, as i see it.
mircea_popescu: well perhaps the discussion of which lice spawned what scorpion is not directly interesting to engineers, being more in the vein of politics and law. so i guess you actually have a fine aproximation.
ascii_field actually does find it interesting, and if mircea_popescu ever writes a detailed likbez, will enjoy reading
mircea_popescu: but no, the two got merged late. originally, foundation was transparent scam to syphon and repurpose bitcoins to prop up "vc entreprises".
mircea_popescu: once got called out on that, shed some bits (coinlab, anyone recall that ?) and moved to "worthy goals" (stioll not releasing any reports, because vessenes, like all clueless idiots involved, thinks taint is a thing, and also thinks i don't know his addresses, because whatever, he's magically protected by nulandine)
mircea_popescu: except no worthy goals were willing to work with them, and so moved to "default worthy goal" = pay gavin a salary.
mircea_popescu: which was getting paid anyway. but better cover now.
mircea_popescu: which pretty much brings us to 2014, when the thing became too expensive to be useful, so it had to run out of usg jurisdiction (went to uk)
mircea_popescu: pretending now that hey, "they are publishing reports". of the new entity.
mircea_popescu: because whatever, i'm going to hang them anyway, and usg isn't going to hang them no matter what, so that leaves a space in the middle.
mircea_popescu: which pretty much brings us to date.
mircea_popescu: (and by "too expensive to be useful" i don't mean anything but, for every btc in gains it makes us, it gives that terrorist we shall not name 10 to 100 btc worth of ammo)

bitstein: mircea_popescu: I am under the impression that if they wanted to, kako or nano could publish ratings under any name as they please. Is this correct? If so, how can someone viewing the WoT db have certainty that information they see is as the rater intended? GPG signing would be one solution.
mircea_popescu: bitstein this is true for both of them, currently. this happens to also not be a problem because a) they could do this once ; and b) the way you're supposed to use this tool is by asking the raters about their ratings.
mircea_popescu: as pere the entire "wot is not an oilfield with trust as oil".
jurov: !rate bitstein -10 fake rating
assbot: Request successful, get your OTP: http://w.b-a.link/otp/fe66fb89030ffb97
mircea_popescu: note that changing this model for "maintain signed ratings" does not help : either of them could show OLD rather than current ratings, which would still be undetectable.
bitstein: mircea_popescu: b is an important point, thanks. As for old rather than current ratings, that's where shasums and deedbot could come in to help.
mircea_popescu: how ?
jurov: bitstein, looks like you want to reinvent the blockchain or sidechain
mircea_popescu: on the other side of the fence there is this (i suspect irrational) notion that pumping out signed material weakens the signer key.
bitstein: mircea_popescu: you would have the hash of the db timestamped, so you can verify that the rating is current as of a certain point (given you have the data to recreate the hash)
mircea_popescu: how would you know when the rating's supposed to be ?
mircea_popescu: i have ratings i made 2 years ago.
