brendafdez: if you absolutely want to use skype, you can. All else you mention, you can.
indiancandy1_: i do skype shows
indiancandy1_: linux is good right
brendafdez: Skype is rogue, I gather there are safe(r) ways to run it anyway.

trinque: frankly a Ubuntu live cd is probably a more sensible first try

danielpbarron: it's built in
indiancandy1_: same
danielpbarron: that doesn't mean yours would work necessarily
danielpbarron: i guess it wouldn't hurt to make an ubntu installer flash drive and use it to boot live and see if your hardware is supported by a linux kernel in general
danielpbarron: do you have an old computer lying around that you can use as your offline machine?
brendafdez: resisting the temptation to install it will be to much
danielpbarron: well installing it would mean wiping out her winblows stuff
brendafdez: she can always do dp ehhr... dual boot
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Her big issue is supporting the cam tools. Ubuntu is probably going to be fine for the camera in general, Iffier for skype. Probably not possible for her to use all of the tools she could need for work on OpenBSD/Gentoo without going through hell and rewriting some of them.
danielpbarron: lol so ubuntu is linux for girls

brendafdez: well, i don't have plans, but it may happen. The last trip we made as part of the Giras Bitcoiners project was Asunción in Paraguay last December. The funding issue wasn't getting better. Only one of the trips allowed us to break even.
ben_vulpes: okay fine, share your recipe

ben_vulpes: ;;later tell nubbins care to share your darwin recipe?
gribble: The operation succeeded.
brendafdez: This brings us to another issue which is the way the 'foundations' present themselves as as sort of official representation of bitcoin. That way they are better able to get funds from companies which want to be advertised and from membes of the community who want to 'be part of bitcoin'. It's what the FBA was/is doing and what the BF was/is doing on a much larger scale.
marteen: brendafdez: ok, I see
brendafdez: When we presented our project as an independent bunch of guys it wasn't the same.
marteen: makes sense
brendafdez: but who know, neither me nor the other 3 'founders' have buried it, so...
marteen: brendafdez: you mention 'funding issue'... how do you usually get this funding?
brendafdez: it was awesome for us as an experience I must say, getting to know the local communites, to travel so much, also to be able to promote one 'real use case' for bitcoin to local service providers
marteen: of course... I can imagine it must have been a great experience :)
ben_vulpes: burning suckers' cash always is.
brendafdez: through sponsors, we had some of them, bitpagos sponsored every trip, digicoins sponsored the trip to mendoza, beOk sponsored the trip to paraguay
ben_vulpes: hence the startup as flamethrower fueled by bezzlars metaphor.

brendafdez: I wanted to write an article on 'bitcon evangelism' or 'selling bitcoin', which of course is selling it to the companies not the people :P
brendafdez: selling the campanies the idea that you'll be selling them with bitcoin to people who attend the talks/conferences/etc
marteen: that would be great
brendafdez: The whole 'evangelism' thing is bullshit, but there are incentives to do it, companies paying for it, who get their money from vcs and desperately need adoption, users, whatever
marteen: well i think we need more companies accepting bitcoin
cazalla: mircea_popescu: why let everyone think beauty and brains don't mix ? <<< get those eyes checked, perhaps same time as indiancandy gets that nose seen too
brendafdez: the point about evangelism is that if you suck the right cock you may make a living out of it. I'm not naming names
marteen: hhmmm, interesting...
marteen: brendafdez: you you can make a living out of it, even being from argentina?

brendafdez: I told you i wasn't even breaking even :P ask the FBA guys, they got funded in late 2012 to do it, and a few who suck theirs get a small part of the cake
marteen: oh, ok...
marteen: well, I mean... I'd like to buy more things more directly with bitcoin...
brendafdez: you can sell the bitcoin and buy with fiat,
cazalla: brendafdez: indiancandy they are awesome <3 those tits. I feel guilty now that I made you start posting pics :) <<< great tits, great body, but what a busted face she has
brendafdez: if you hold gold you dont need merchants to accept gold
marteen: brendafdez: yea, but that's still pretty inconvenient (selling btc for fiat)
brendafdez: why is it? bc there are no people doing it cash in mendoza? i know for a fact thats not the acse
brendafdez: if you were in a small town and no bank account then maybe inconvenient
marteen: I don't know any people here in mendoza that provide that service
marteen: and still, it's an extra step
brendafdez: santiago castiglione travels there often bringing cash, the two btb braindamaged morons do it, if you can stand their stupidity. Tha saner person in Mendoiza is Adriel Araujo from Bitpagos. Contact him, he'll be able to help you, no doubt.
marteen: and if it involves a bank account, then that adds to the inconveniency
marteen: brendafdez: wow, thanks for all this info :)
marteen: anyway, even if there's availability of btc <-> fiat services, i'd much rather avoid the intermediaries (and the banks)
brendafdez: the banks can be avoided entirely. The intermediary is not a must. You can just get in contact with other people, publish your own listings and such. When you're paying with bitcoin, they are selling the bitcoin, so the cost is also there. In Argentina anyway pretty much no transactions at PoS are made in bitcoin, it's just a show for companies which pretend to be doing busniess helping merchants accept bitcoin
brendafdez: If mircea or pete were online and willing to discuss it, it would be easier, they have a more solid and convincing rhetoric than I could dream of myself
brendafdez: but it's problematic for many reasons to think that the value of bitcoin is to be able to pay coffe at a shop
brendafdez: bitcoin is like gold. And gold is no less valuable when you can't spend it at a coffe shop. And even if there are large costs to exchange such modest amounts of gold or silver
marteen: hmm, ok... I think I understand your point
brendafdez: There was a point in bitcoin history when bitcoin was basically free, it had no monetary value, at least during 2009, and mostly also 2010, now it would be unthinkablee
brendafdez: In the future we'll look back and wonder how bitcoin transactions used to be free, when they have large costs involved and it needs be so to keep the network secure
brendafdez: so when blocks fill up and transactions start competing and miner subsidy goes down halving after halving the cost issue of why its not for coffee will be clearer
marteen: but I would still like to be able to make small electronic value transactions without recurring to a central trusted party though
marteen: would this be possible?
marteen: ever?
brendafdez: i'm not sure, there are alternatvies, alternative chains, sidechains, whatever, which certainly can't compete with bitcoin.
brendafdez: right now bitcoin is an alternative even for coffee
brendafdez: however i doubt it's a better technology than handning a piece of paper in exchange for drinks
marteen: hhmmm, i don't like these papers
brendafdez: print your own
marteen: hehe
ben_vulpes suspects a sybil
brendafdez: after all, fiat and the monopoly of money by the state has been going for barely a century.

marteen: brendafdez: btw, thanks for taking the time to explain all this to me :)
brendafdez: that's where we're heading back with bitcoin, taking away the power of the government. Sometimes one loses the big picture. Taking the ability of the government corporation to finance itself through robbery (taxes) and deceit (inflation) is important. Decentralizing coffy purchases at small shops maybe not so much. You could do it in centralized brandatokens and get your bitcoin sent at the end of the day. If I charge you much you go
brendafdez: indiancandytokens instead.
marteen: i find it all really interesting
marteen: ohh, yea, that last part I could accept
brendafdez: it's not that bad having centralized private tokens.
marteen: I agree with that
brendafdez: for certain use cases.
marteen: the key there is that it should be very easy and almost free for anyone to create a centralized private token
BingoBoingo: brendafdez> bitcoin is like gold. And gold is no less valuable when you can't spend it at a coffe shop. And even if there are large costs to exchange such modest amounts of gold or silver << It going take some intermediate step. Instead of trading you highly valuable Bitcoin/Plutonium for coffee you trade it for big bundle of credits at the coffee shop or whatever the local cash sustomarily used for small value trades is
brendafdez: but for quite a while there's been a trend to sell 'decentralization of your grandma through smart contracts in the blockchain' as the next big thing, that's maybe just smoke and meaningless bullshit to appeal to the vcs
brendafdez: BingoBoingo brendatokens would be fine.

asciilifeform: i zapped the win32 ifdefs on account of them cluttering up my reading material, and for no particular other reason
asciilifeform: (would have done the same for nintendo ifdefs if there had been any)
asciilifeform: incidentally, the ifdef-iness of bitcoind speaks for the horrendous mega-ugly of cpp

asciilifeform: (the one other fella here who might know what i speak of)
nubbins`: i'll warn that this is *not* a svelte makefile, more fat can almost certainly be trimmed. this is simply a "compiles, runs" thing
asciilifeform: nubbins`: any changes -not- in common with openbsd ?
asciilifeform: out of curiosity
nubbins`: sum total of changes: modify SSL_ARCH_TYPE to Darwin64-x86_64-cc
nubbins`: replace sha256sum with shasum -a 256
nubbins`: replace MSG_NOSIGNAL flag with SO_NOSIGPIPE
asciilifeform: starting from item 3, is in bitcoind proper ?
nubbins`: yes, started from 0.5.3 base
nubbins`: irc.cpp and net.cpp
asciilifeform: was asking, whether any but the last item (signals) concerned bitcoind source itself
nubbins`: ah, right. no
nubbins`: the signals thing is the only actual code change
asciilifeform: aha
nubbins`: random forum quote: "In linux sockets (BSD 4.4 compliant) there something called MSG_NOSIGNAL"
nubbins`: so without having the ability to check, i'd advance that SO_NOSIGPIPE might be an osx-specific fix
Adlai: my pet theory of late is that satoshi intentionally built 0.1 on winblows as a red herring
nubbins`: oh and the 0.5.3 makefile.osx doesn't have *any* of the hardening stuff that makefile.unix does
nubbins`: so uh, there's that

mats: for the record, there is still absolutely zero solid evidence that Dual_EC_DRBG is backdoored. the Snowden leaks never mention it by name, never talk about backdooring a CSPRNG, and indeed never talk about backdooring anything. the extent of what they mention is that NSA wanted to 'influence standards'

nubbins`: while one may feel silly taking the paranoid stance as the default.... we're just evaluating the evidence as presented
asciilifeform: nearly everything i and fellow paranoiac crackpots have ever spoken about crypto has proven to be abundantly justified.
nubbins`: ^
asciilifeform: justification coming out of our ears, arses
asciilifeform: enough for anyone, i'd think, at this point
nubbins`: i think the overwhelming amount of justification triggers a "this CAN'T be true" response in a lot of people
asciilifeform: once you amputate your vestigial 'this can't be true' organ, you are left with only your understanding of the physical world to go on

mats: look, i'm putting my skepticism on the record. if there was evidence, it'd look like 'Tor Stinks' or the slides from Der Spiegel's work on the Belgacom pwnage. i'm not saying that Dual_EC_DRBG doesn't have obvious flaws or that anyone should continue using it, but my skepticism regarding it being an intentional backdoor remains
nubbins`: all american internet traffic flowing through an NSA closet in an at&t building -- it can't be true
asciilifeform: mats: at the risk of repeating myself, i will phrase my position as a kind of maxim: 'it is necessary to behave as if hearbleed and dual_ec were crafted vulns, regardless of any apparent evidence to the contrary'
mats: the whole 'NSA is undermining all crypto standards!' meme is overplayed
asciilifeform: this is a fairly outlandish thing on the surface, and i will justify it with something like 'pascal's wager'
nubbins`: 1% chance of it being an intentional backdoor is 1000x the proof you need to not use it
asciilifeform: thing is, there are not so many good opportunities for crafted vulns, and the usg folks know it. hence they try to cultivate an overall maggoty flavour in software culture at large
asciilifeform: e.g. poettering and his merry men
asciilifeform: in hopes that the maggots will hatch naturally
asciilifeform: this doesn't even require very much support

mats: by being excessively paranoid, you deprive yourself of a lot of useful engineering
mats: the claim i'm most concerned about is that the weakness was engineered by NSA, and that, by having approved it, NIST was complicit, thus casting doubt on all other NIST standards

nubbins`: consider that "NIST approved it without knowing that it was backdoored" is probably the least desirable of the two

pete_dushenski: mats seems to be pushing his dual_ec point a bit. i'm... skeptical.
pete_dushenski: nubbins`, re: jamaica << there's a spectrum of behaviours within the 'poor service' realm
nubbins`: nod
pete_dushenski: on one end is disinterest, a la paris or w/e, on the other end is entitlement
nubbins`: why only two ends? it's a triangle
pete_dushenski: you could argue that they both grate on different people in different ways, sure, but for me it's the latter that annoys
nubbins`: what you see as entitlement is a desire to not waste time
pete_dushenski: triangle with 'good service' at the third point ?
nubbins`: no, realistic expectations
pete_dushenski: what fucking 'wasted time' could jamaicans possibly have ?
nubbins`: trying to lick your asshole for a buck?
pete_dushenski: so they want to chill at the bar and smoke some weed instead of making a buck ?
nubbins`: when there's 500 other tourists who will just cough one up?
pete_dushenski: maybe they lick my asshole for a 100 though
nubbins`: dude, people the world over want to chill at the bar and smoke some weed instead of making a buck.
pete_dushenski: maybe they put in a bit more effort, because sure, i have standards, and maybe they get rewarded for it
nubbins`: it's a buck.
nubbins`: that's two maybes
nubbins`: how much of your own time do you waste on maybes?
nubbins`: i'd say 5% of the time, or less, "more effort" results in "reward"
nubbins`: so why bother?
pete_dushenski: non-linear payoffs are a thing
pete_dushenski: if 5% chance yields >20x reward then +ev
nubbins`: you're omitting a variable
nubbins`: the extra time required
pete_dushenski: ok, so 40x payoffs are also a thing
nubbins`: ok, so 1% chance.
nubbins`: let's both make up numbers
pete_dushenski: or maybe it's more quality of time, not quantity i'm looking for
nubbins`: maybe.
nubbins`: consider that if your suggested approach worked, people would do it
nubbins`: but they don't
nubbins`: so.............
pete_dushenski: in fact, my experience was that people gave me TOO MUCH time
pete_dushenski: they'd walk up to me and want to show me this and that, start following me wherever i was going, trying to nudge me here and there
pete_dushenski: they seemed to have an abundance of time but little notion of how to use it effectively (at least on me)
thestringpuller: i'm an expert time waster, and wasting time is an art pete_dushenski
pete_dushenski: jamaicans should have a museum dedicated to this art, i say.
nubbins`: pete_dushenski minimum wage in jamaica is $1.25/hr.
nubbins`: if they get two dollars pestering you for an hour, they're ahead.
nubbins`: ten bucks is a day's work at an honest job
nubbins`: why does it seem irrational that they'd harass tourists for money?
nubbins`: consider how many of them just fork over the $$ to get rid of the guy
pete_dushenski: ok, so now you're saying that it's worth their time to be of service to me... make up your mind
nubbins`: i'm saying it's worth their time to try to get $$ out of tourists, but it's not worth their time to chase dead ends
thestringpuller: pete_dushenski: well it's in art in the sense of the Oracle from the Matrix. Once you realize there is a lot of "waiting" for events to occur, then it's best to spend the meanwhile in enjoyment.
pete_dushenski: i don't see that harassment, jostling, or whatever you want to call it is effective
nubbins`: pete_dushenski it's not effective --against you-- but it's *precisely effective* against the average vacationer.
pete_dushenski: if it were, jamaica wouldn't be worse than marakesh
nubbins`: these guys immediately realize that you're not some sucker who's gonna fork over a tenner
nubbins`: so they leave you alone
pete_dushenski: except they don't!
pete_dushenski: that's the thing!
nubbins`: ever?
pete_dushenski: they waste their time on me.
nubbins`: right.
nubbins`: and they do this because....
nubbins`: ....it sometimes works.
nubbins`: sometimes they harass a guy for an hour and get a payday
pete_dushenski: they all want to talk to the white kid with hair like them. i was the most popular thing on the street
nubbins`: pete_dushenski understand that you're a wallet with an afro when you visit resorts
pete_dushenski: thestringpuller: hm. i can see it
nubbins`: all behaviour you observe follows from this
pete_dushenski: what fucking resorts ?
pete_dushenski: these are cities i'm talking about. namely, ocho rios and kingston
pete_dushenski: the point i'm making is that quality is more valuable than quantity
pete_dushenski: (though yes, quantity does have a quality all its own)
pete_dushenski: and i saw a fuckton of quantity and very little, but admittedly non-zero, amounts of quality

pete_dushenski: to which i humbly proposed, above, immigration of workerbees.
nubbins`: my recently identified pete's-blog-post-about-jamaica meta problem is that you identify entitlement as a problem but fail to realize that you're acting more entitled than these guys are

pete_dushenski: that alone is a huge difference between me and kid scooping frozen fly guts
pete_dushenski: they're not me and i'm not them, so ya, if we say words that sounds superficially similar, they have different contexts, thus different implications
nubbins`: sure, but doesn't mean automatic handjobs for the guy who doesn't scoop fly guts

danielpbarron: and then later i found a guide for debian, but the bitcoind was still dynamic and wouldn't work on it
mircea_popescu: ah so because easier ?
mircea_popescu: is the current arch thing static ?
danielpbarron: no
danielpbarron: it's from ascii's portatronic instructions
danielpbarron: easier yes, in that i don't know any alternatives that work yet
danielpbarron: i think another unsolved problem is that we don't know how to compile a linux kernel that works
danielpbarron: or else maybe gentoo would work on it
mircea_popescu: so basically, you put archlinux according to ascii_field's brew on the pogo, and then compiled a static foundation bitcoind and loaded that up, and that's what we have now ?
trinque: danielpbarron: you can use localmodconfig for that ☟︎
trinque: make localmodconfig
danielpbarron: no, i compiled the dynamic foundation bitcoind
trinque: build it on a working linux, and you'll get a kernel config
trinque: with all current mods
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron because static didn't work because ?
danielpbarron: it didn't exist at the time

danielpbarron: i tried to build it for my gentoo laptop and it errored out
danielpbarron: it's for 64 bit systems atm
danielpbarron: and mine is 32
danielpbarron: idk if this also means it won't work on pogo or what
mircea_popescu: wait, gentoo stopped supporting 32 bit ?
danielpbarron: no, did
mircea_popescu: oh right.
mircea_popescu: shit. don't tell me the pogos are 32bit ?!
trinque: it would appear to be 32bit arm
mircea_popescu: o fucking hell check out the gross mismanagement i managed to bless the world with.
thestringpuller: !up assbot
thestringpuller: r
thestringpuller: !up ascii_field
mircea_popescu: mod6 so the emerging problem here is that while i said "ok" to 64 bit only foundation bitcoind, it turns out when need 32 bit support for our own fucking projects, which notably is the pogo.
mircea_popescu: now, can we has static etc 32 bit ?
thestringpuller: is netbsd still going to be the pogo "base"?
danielpbarron: thestringpuller, no way!
danielpbarron: is it being 32 bit a problem beyond getting bitcoind working?
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron which bitcoind ?
danielpbarron: our version
mircea_popescu: seems that's 64 bit only now o.O
danielpbarron: i was lead to believe that getting it to work on 32 bit wasn't that big of a deal, just low priority
danielpbarron: i mean, is the pogo being 32 bit a bigger problem? like is 32 bit becoming obsolete or something?
danielpbarron: http://www.openbsd.org/images/poster31.jpg << theme for 5.5 was "back to the future" -- something about how 32 bit is a problem for unix time

mircea_popescu: moar comments ?
danielpbarron: it could be debian
danielpbarron: debian works well on pogo, i'm ircing from it right now
danielpbarron: the static bitcoind might work on that
mircea_popescu: it can't, it has no 32 bit support.
mircea_popescu: but iirc, a lot of valuable effort went into selecting and pepraring the os. what do you mean "it could be debian" ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 25167 @ 0.0002288 = 5.7582 BTC [+]
danielpbarron: so far i've gotton both debian and archlinux to work on a pogo
danielpbarron: gotten* / and debian is preferable because no systemd
mircea_popescu: o.O
danielpbarron: but the dynamic bitcoind wouldn't work on it; this may be resolved with the "new bitcoind 32 bit"
mircea_popescu: dude this "let's try pluging things see what happens" approach only works if you actually test, and you're not tooled for the mindboggling thing this testing would be.
mircea_popescu: gotta go with an os brewed by someone with some experience so as to have at least a fighting chance the whole thing works.
danielpbarron: ascii did not brew the OS i'm using
mircea_popescu: what happened there ?
danielpbarron: his instructions were strictly for building bitcoind for pogo
mircea_popescu: wasn't the bulk of that "how to load the os on it" ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you there ?
danielpbarron: i was holding out for the thing that gets installed in the eeprom
mircea_popescu: ie, the os ?
danielpbarron: yeah
mircea_popescu: so what happened ?
danielpbarron: ascii was looking at netbsd for a time; there was some bug where it couldn't see the nand, plus we discovered nasty things about netbsd in general
mircea_popescu: i see.
mircea_popescu: so basically, i surmise, we'd have liked a clean "os in eeprom, data on disk" arrangement, but it seems we're not actually capable to do this, and so as a backstop you tried a few oses to go on disk
mircea_popescu: that basically it ?
danielpbarron: yeah
danielpbarron: ascii is probably capable, but he's also very busy
danielpbarron: i'm not so busy, but not so capable
mircea_popescu: i see.
nubbins`: arch, fwiw, has the most available documentation re: installing on pogoplug
nubbins`: but afaik there's no reason, say, gentoo wouldn't fly
mircea_popescu: nubbins` the 128mb is the reason none of this flies. they all crawl so far.
nubbins`: consider the statement suitably modified
mircea_popescu: anyway, if anyone listening would like to try his hand at "make your fave os 128mb in eeprom"...
jurov: i can do C/system programming fine but gotta pay bills... stepped aside from this for now
mircea_popescu: there is that.
danielpbarron: oh, i guess the reason no gentoo was the kernel and userland are bigger; but if it's not going into the eeprom gentoo should work

mircea_popescu: danielpbarron we want os on the disk like we want wallets on windows.
mircea_popescu: it's a horribru solution.
danielpbarron: right, but i'm just offering alternatives to ArchLinux (which is also on disk)
mircea_popescu: right.
trinque: danielpbarron: busybox is made for tight spaces
trinque: gentoo can do that
nubbins`: potential for wasted effort if the chosen os won't fit into eeprom down the road

mircea_popescu: "traditional" gender roles not only happen to be correct, but the costs of getting rid of them are, simply put, societal collapse.

danielpbarron: store blockchain on SD card? that will take forever to sync
ascii_field: i tried this
ascii_field: not so hot.
mircea_popescu: maybe he has good sd cards.
ascii_field: sd is a few 100 kB/sec in practice
danielpbarron: the 5400 rpm sata drive takes long enough
ascii_field: serial protocol, ~33MHz iirc
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron you gotta appreciate the following point : people have diff items hanging around ther house
mircea_popescu: and time is not much of a constraint here.
ascii_field: sd card isn't typically built for 100% duty cycle either
mircea_popescu: so it takes 6 months to sync instead of 4. oookay ?
ascii_field: (normal application is more something liek a camera)
mircea_popescu: if it runs for55 years ?

mircea_popescu: more points scored for japan than everything the us state dept did past decade put together.
trinque: I doubt I have the culture to even talk about honor but that seems in the ballpark
mircea_popescu: actually americans used to be pretty honorable as far as these things go.
mircea_popescu: then they became reasonable instead, sometime around ww1/ww2. by now...
nubbins`: mircea_popescu huge slab of steel = unreasonable heat-up times, plus the thing'd fall over frontwards
mircea_popescu: i thought this was used on a feeder, not 1 shirt at a time

mircea_popescu: if you do 1k of the things, metal is actualy very reasonable. just the right sort of q inertia
mircea_popescu: Pierre_Rochard heh.
nubbins`: this is a "Flash dryer" for semi-drying inks on-press between colors of ink
trinque: Pierre_Rochard: oh codd
nubbins`: i lay down a print, swing the arm 90deg to the left
nubbins`: dwell 10s while i print the next one, rotate again etc
nubbins`: THAT SAID, people can and do use the huge-coil ones
nubbins`: philippines in particular has a massive amount of small-industry silkscreen and almost all of them are using dismantled ovens for curing
jurov: actually that is what i meant, office rats can't really have honor. and without honor, also no role
mircea_popescu: jurov why couldn't they ?
nubbins`: which everyone thought was odd, until one guy from there explained how many ovens an actual flash cure would cost
mircea_popescu: see, to propose honor is somehow in the job ie external rather than i nthe person seems nonsense.
mircea_popescu: besides, historically, every new job was deemed to be "devoid of the possibility of honor"
nubbins`: you see some wild setups. like shirts being hung on a clothesline and wheeled across a 30 foot bank of hung oven elements
nubbins`: etc
jurov: honorable person would refuse such job
mircea_popescu: i dunno about that.
jurov: know any counterexample?
mircea_popescu: now, you're right in saying that gender is not really an attribute of lower life forms, and if one becomes a part of some sort of machine the gender's useless to them, which is how we got bees and ants in the first place.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, i dunno that there's something magical about the office automatically requiring this.
mircea_popescu: the uk ran offices of perfectly respectable folk for all of the 1800s.
mircea_popescu: for that matter - being A DOCTOR is becoming more like this, and wasn't like this before at all - it was the very pinnacle of liberal profession.
mircea_popescu: so i agree that punishing the plebs for being "bicurious" or "metrosexual" or "gender confused" or "Transsexual" or w/e is really silly, they're simply sexless.
mircea_popescu: but this does not flow from "office job" imo.
jurov: both cases were primarily defined tby going out and talking/doing something to people, not pushing papers and filling forms
nubbins`: hey, some people in office jobs have sharp teeth
mircea_popescu: jurov not sure socialisation is the key here. for instance, navigators perfectly honorable, except if not.
jurov: um, i can't put the finger exactly there
mircea_popescu: then again, pirates invented the "honor among thieves" thing which is what we're fundamentally continuating here. "how could there be rule of law otuside of usg ?!?!" "same way there was rule of law in the fucking bahamas"
trinque: jurov: are you equating office with cube-hell?
mircea_popescu: and this is where it comes out that mp sees only very moderate problems with "honor killings", for instance, as atrociously intoilerable they may seem to the libertard set. meanwhile mp sees some problem with say "hospital deaths", as totally benign and normal and expected they seem to the same set.
mircea_popescu: but not subscribing to that particular silly manicheism allows one to see that really, the modern story of "libertard society driving out honor society (aka, amusingly, honorata societa)" has everything to do with a happenstance :
mircea_popescu: that scientists happened to prefer working with one of the available ideologies rather than the other. there's nothing ~fundamental~ about the "well being" of democracy.
mircea_popescu: it all flows from packaging and selling other people's added value, and those other people are pointedly not part of the democracy, nor is their donation necessary in absolutely any sense.
mircea_popescu: so, on the score of "what is bitcoin disrupting" : getting scientists to donate to a honor-based system rather than to a socialism-based system will utterly restructure society.
mircea_popescu: /end rant
trinque: hm yeah, and the thing has inertia. places with scientists are better places for scientists, that sort of thing?

mircea_popescu: truth is scientists can't really be anything but scientists.
mircea_popescu: if they buy into the entire "socialist nice" thing, as exemplified by say the original dispute that created this place, or whatever recent quiote from some linus criticism of poettering's or w/e, you get one sort of failure mode of science.
mircea_popescu: if they buy into the entire honor thing, you get a different failure mode.
mircea_popescu: in principle whichever ideology (ie, principle of societal organisation) offers best insulation from failure modes will prevail.
mircea_popescu: since somehow "tradition" was for a while cognate with "don't need to read or write or even know history, tradition is what i say it is", there was a major, multi-secular migration towards "liberalism"
mircea_popescu: as that shit's coming to hit the fan with its "equality" and whatnot, the whole tectonic plaque's going to come this way again.

trinque: mhm
mircea_popescu: most things too early to tell really.
mircea_popescu: for lolz, contrast this with the entire "we don't understand bitcoin but are excited at the blockchain technology" thingee.
jurov: these scientists need to be funded, and somehow despite mpex, this isn't happening
mircea_popescu: gossip networks and fault tolerant pow. stuff that was there for decades. "we don't understand what matters but we'll stick to clutching at the straws we recognise"
jurov: alf's everyday ramblings are case in point
mircea_popescu: suddenly the "don't need to read or write" shoe is on the other, liberal foot.
trinque: jurov: seems like it's early days
mircea_popescu: jurov yeah, most infants have dayjobs too, the feed themselves o.O
mircea_popescu: read the case in point in say henry millers' books. the guy DROVE the sexual revolution,

mircea_popescu: in the end, different people.
mircea_popescu: trinque people always wanted to fight forgetfulness huh.
trinque: I don't follow
mircea_popescu: lemme find you the quote
mircea_popescu: Pedalavo come se fuggissi, e in realtà fuggivo. Da lei, da quelle emozioni, dai sogni, dai ricordi, da tutto e pensavo che dovevo dimenticare. Ero certo che sarei riuscito a dimenticare, ma oggi che sono vecchio, che ho consumato banalmente la vita, che ho conosciuto tante donne che mi hanno detto: “Ricordati di me” e io le ho scordate tutte, ancora oggi e’ lei l’unica che non ho mai dimenticato. Malena!
mircea_popescu: you seen that movie ?
trinque: I haven't
mircea_popescu: ah, check it out sometime
trinque: k
trinque: should I be able to parse the quotation without the film?
