mircea_popescu: didanyone eventually advertise ?
PeterL: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=05-10-2015#1291888 << is there a working alternative? ☝︎☟︎
assbot: Logged on 05-10-2015 04:25:32; mircea_popescu: does anyone seriously propose the "google is useful" myth anymore even ?
mircea_popescu: "this pressed shit gun doesn't work" "is there an alternative ?"
mircea_popescu: i dunno, i'm not the sort of hayseed that needs to search the web. but i assume there isn't, because it's a hard problem. there not being, however, does nothing for google, imo.
PeterL: so on the occasion when you do want to search web, what do you use?
mircea_popescu: search like how ?
mircea_popescu: if it's some pop cult reference i either ask someone in the know or else ud/tvtropes. if it's some actual thing i usually know enough to know what to read.
mircea_popescu: but in general, what sort of information do you obtain by putting words in a box ? suppose you search for "chicken broth" and they explain to you it's a heavy fuel oil. do you believe that ? ☟︎
mircea_popescu: do you now go through life with the notion in your head that chicken broth is a fuel oil ?
mircea_popescu: and if you don't believe it anyway, then why bother with the box ?
mircea_popescu: if i want to find out what X said i don't go to ask google, i go ask x. etc.
PeterL: I find google useful as a starting point for finding things on the web
mircea_popescu: like what ?
PeterL: you don't get information from google, you just use google to get to the places with the info
mircea_popescu: if it's a complex enough graph it really doesn't matter where you start.
mircea_popescu: how do you know the places google takes you to have any info ?
mircea_popescu: (other than the memory hole effect, of course)
PeterL: the places it takes you to are to be evaluated separately from google
PeterL: Usually I find what I search for in the first page of google
mircea_popescu: but like, an example ?
PeterL: okay, today I wanted to refresh my memory on writing a letter of resignation. I type in the box "how to write a letter of resignation", and 3 of the first four links had nice examples
mircea_popescu: uh

mircea_popescu: i don't think i've used style templates in the past twenty years. conceivably this may be a difference of style.
mircea_popescu: i simply do not care what those examples may be, i expect to be the example for them.
mircea_popescu: maybe in the end the story reduces to "i'm just uncurious enough"
PeterL: another example, I wanted to try to make homemade bagels, I type in the box "bagel recipe", and it gives me several sites with recipes to try. Clearly, these are not all of the same quality, but I only have to look through a couple to find one wotrh trying
PeterL: think from the other perspective, you say you are the example for things, how do people find your example to copy? Something like google can link them to you
mircea_popescu: but see, the only reason i could conceivably be interested in is because a woman made them and i liked. then i ask her, such as my mom, or the chick in the cofee shop, or whoever. i don't think i ever wanted to make a random item.
mircea_popescu: ah, sure. it can. it can also send them to paycoin, just as well.
PeterL: You ask at a restraunt for a recipe of their dish and they give you something?
mircea_popescu: not useful is like untrustworthy. doesn't mean "absolutely and in all cases zero use". it just means unreliable enough to be 0.
mircea_popescu: this actually happened.
mircea_popescu: (i rarely ask "gimme the recipe", because i'm actually sa pretty good cook. usually i ask "is this white sauce or what did you do ?!"
mircea_popescu: there's a difference between these two classes of questions, you know, like in tech support.
PeterL: another example, I am watching a movie and I want to know who the actor is. I google "cast of movie whatever", most likely it links to IMDB, I could have gone straight to IMBD, but it is easier to just start all searches from one place rather than trying to start at each individual site depending on the search
mircea_popescu: for this i usually go straight to imdb
mircea_popescu: tho i have homebrew talent, you know those people who know ALL THE ACTORS and ALL THE SONGS etc ?
mircea_popescu: anwyay, google as bookmark organizer, which is what you're describing, is about as useful as that goes, sure. could just as well use any other
PeterL: search google, click on what you want is two steps; go to site, search, maybe their search function works the way you expect is at least three steps
mircea_popescu: see the thing that started this discussion. http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=05-10-2015#1291886 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 05-10-2015 04:25:17; mircea_popescu: ;;google ilkka kokkarinen's piece re: glass
mircea_popescu: (and btw, i found it by typing se in myaddress bar which took me to search.bitcoin-assets.com/ rather than typing anything into google. because THIS always works and is way faster)
mircea_popescu: in short, google may perhaps maintain the illusion of utility for as long as the needs are superficial and stay that way.but if you're mostly looking for specific stuff and tend to go beyond the surface of things, it doesn't actually do anything whatever.
mircea_popescu: and right now, im doing (atypically) a foray into discussions of a topic im not particularly familiar with (indie game devel). i read upwards of fifty pages, i did not use google at any point throughout. because, here's the snatch : you try googling something to get you these results.
mircea_popescu: these results specifically : http://www.pixelprospector.com/the-big-list-of-indie-game-marketing/
assbot: The Big List Of Indie Game Marketing | PixelProspector - the indie goldmine ... ( http://bit.ly/1PeG1I9 )
mircea_popescu: even when i'm playing way out of field, google still fails.
mircea_popescu: and that said, i am probably in the top 1% when it comes to understanding the higher level issues involved, which means i canhammer together a search string like few others. so google would probably be lot more useful to me, were it to be useful at all, than to the general population.
PeterL: but the general population is ignorant and does not care to alleviate their ignorance, so google works for them. If they can't find it on google, it doesn't exist
mircea_popescu: this is all nice and good, but it still does not make it useful.
mircea_popescu: the general population may be happy to pop sugar pills, but that doesn't make them medicine, right ?
diana_coman: <mircea_popescu> these results specifically : http://www.pixelprospector.com/the-big-list-of-indie-game-marketing/ <- it's 2nd result returned for me on search: indie game marketing
assbot: The Big List Of Indie Game Marketing | PixelProspector - the indie goldmine ... ( http://bit.ly/1PeG1I9 )
diana_coman: then again, I am NOT finding google useful to find information in general
mircea_popescu: diana_coman and would you rely on that ?
diana_coman: IF I have no choice but to start that way, I would afterwards check the source basically
diana_coman: so no
mircea_popescu: not like im saying it should be illegal or anything.
mircea_popescu: sugar pills ftw, for all i care.
PeterL: What would a useful search engine entail, or do you see that as even possible?
diana_coman: well, I think it might head that way, in the sense that it happened more than once that I searched for things with precise and specific keywords I knew were in there
diana_coman: and it did not find them
mircea_popescu: the original idea was superb, the pr thing. it's a great way to score a graph.
diana_coman: and when I got there I had been right, the key words were exactly as given etc
mircea_popescu: but then once people are aware of the scoring, you're lost and it's irredemable.
diana_coman: so it's broken for sure
mircea_popescu: i doubt the google problem is in any way different from the colored coins/ripple/ethereum problem, or generally "automated trust" issue.
mircea_popescu: so yes in this sense, google is here to supersede "smart contracts" or vice-versa, whatever. either way really, nonsense's nonsense.
diana_coman: it's still kind of ok for specific stuff, more like bookmarking kind of thing - I know what I'm searching for and roughly where it is, I just need the quick path to it (as in search on dl.acm for articles of X on topic Y or in journal Z)
diana_coman: assuming the guy doesn't have his own page updated for some reason
mircea_popescu: and then five years later you discover it hid for no reason one article out of 6
mircea_popescu: and sadly that article could have saved you a year.
diana_coman: well, if the guy was an idiot and did not update his page, what can one do
diana_coman: the thing is that's usually just the start of something anyway
diana_coman: so it doesn't really matter if it hid 1 of 6 - if it is any good, it will be referenced anyway
diana_coman: so you need just a start on the web
diana_coman: the rest is discovered through connections anyway
diana_coman: whether it's that thread or the other one starts with, doesn't make a huge diff
mircea_popescu: mmmyeah.
mircea_popescu: the point of convenience, of course, and the humane way to do this, is where you know the people who'd have written articles on that topicanyway, so you put some bagels in the oven, ring them up, invite them over, and talk the matter through over wine.
diana_coman: well yes, but uhm, not really sure they'd come all the way from australia, nz and whatever else, every time
mircea_popescu does a dozen or more of these "so let me run this by you" citizen arrests things. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: +a week
PeterL: mircea_popescu has alot more pull to abscond interesting people than we do
diana_coman: fwiw I saw first-hand the horrible things google/search-reliance can do for lazy people too - there were some very sad (or laughable if so inclined) articles on Bitcoin in ACM magazine
diana_coman: not to mention some "research"
diana_coman: had some fun reading them
diana_coman: basically a uni professor who had no idea of the topic but just heard he had to say something on it
diana_coman: being important and all
PeterL: "I read it on the internet, it must be true!"
diana_coman: so he went and did a search
mircea_popescu: diana_coman that's the other thing. the odds of me giving two pre-compressed, freeze dried rat shits on the "article" of some random derp i dunno... hm.
diana_coman: no, he is a researcher so he knows about sources etc
mircea_popescu: yaya.
mircea_popescu: !s because that's how normal debates work
assbot: 2 results for 'because that's how normal debates work' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=because+that%27s+how+normal+debates+work
diana_coman: just that he has the wrong ideas as to what is reliable source for btc
mircea_popescu: so he doesn't know about sources.
diana_coman: it turns out like that, yes, though he'd be surprised to find that out
diana_coman: from his point of view he cited only reputable stuff
mircea_popescu: also known as dunning-kruger syndrome.
mircea_popescu: anyway. the original point ofthings likethe mit ai lab, or the xerox parc, or etc, was that people could grab each other by the tie in the hallway
mircea_popescu: hey, wait just a minute there!
diana_coman: well you can grab people by their irc nick I suppose, not really by the tie at any moment
mircea_popescu: i actually have great hope for the future ofthis system yes.
mircea_popescu: anyway, my takeaway from teh reading is that s.mg should probably at least try and support steam. so if there's someone who actually has experience with this, talk to me.

pete_dushenski: "The Fast Lane Car tried to sketch some answers by going to a shop in Denver, Colorado to run a 2011 Jetta TDI with a six-speed DSG transmission on an all-wheel-drive dyno. The thinking was that if you ran all four wheels the car would think it was on the road, whereas if you ran only two the car might think it's being tested. We'll get straight to the numbers: the stock sedan is quoted at 140 horsepower and 236
pete_dushenski: pound-feet of torque. When run with all four wheels turning it produced an uncorrected 114 hp and 214 lb-ft at the wheels. When run with just two wheels in motion the Jetta got 113 hp and 188 lb-ft at the wheels. Reading the graph, we're told that power differences between the two runs were as much as 15 hp and 32 lb-ft."
