ben_vulpes: ancient trope adlai
ben_vulpes: nice to see you again tho
adlai blames the image similarity neural networks for reading his mind wrt the language (since half the channel probably didn't notice anything wrong with the first one)
ben_vulpes: want to scrawl on black post its in black ink with me?
adlai: !google paint it black
ben_vulpes: today i cover staff desks in black post it notes with pentagrams drawn on them
adlai adds this to the list of "music i know thanks to violent video games"
adlai: is it black which soaks all other inks, or do you have some sorta gouach that can paint over it?
danielpbarron: i imagine it's to go with those metalic colored sharpie markers
ben_vulpes: the ink black is somewhat more light absorbent than the paper black
adlai: draw pentagrams in the middle of stack, return to office supply warehouse, rinse, repeat

adlai: woah ben_vulpes since when does the IFF have its own cloakmasks?
phf: we paint the roses red, we paint the roses red
ben_vulpes: sometime when you weren't around
ben_vulpes: DUH
adlai: damn
mircea_popescu: when did s/jdif/iff/ ?
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: you just don't understand how the world works
mircea_popescu: i jewst don't understand ?
adlai: ben_vulpes: don't worry someday the kid might grow up
adlai: mircea_popescu: suggested marginal revenue stream for qntra - affiliate links in articles referencing bitbets
adlai: (authors should not get to pick the links... or maybe you disagree?)
adlai: ie authors would earn through shareholder revenue (or increased share price)
adlai: ben_vulpes: btw thank you for gladness. and i'm sorry that i tried unsolicited to sell you btc via pm.
mircea_popescu: i have nfi. BingoBoingo ? ye think ?
BingoBoingo: I gotta catch up on logs
adlai notes that ben_vulpes was wise to refuse, given timing & retrospect
adlai has to as well, but actually has to ~work~ beforehand, believe it or not

adlai has not picked one yet
asciilifeform: that's what kiseido is for
adlai: but at least i lose to better people on this one
BingoBoingo: K, the bitbet affliate link thing probably has a place, but likely as part of a larger monetization effort when that time comes. I'm uncertain on this matter at this moment.
adlai: V

adlai: tl;dr: the only place where 'Blockchain' is camelpitalized is in the title
adlai: paper is about Bitcoin, and dozens of hypothetical bitcoins (lowercase)
adlai: capitalizes Bitcoin (and upon its popularity) everywhere.

adlai: untrained gardner could also build systemd
asciilifeform: even builds own compiler, so long as you can dig up some gcc post-1995 or so that will build the current gcc

BingoBoingo: But oysters are maximally delicous

pete_dushenski: but with no economic pressure to tear down those monuments in philly, they're not going anywhere either. and good bones on a city can always find new uses, even if there are fits and starts between 'ideal' (ie. high cultural) uses.
phf: on one hand you have areas past art museum, which are basically abandoned lands of early american aristocracy. donated to "the people" to take care of, now they exist as ghetto bordering no mans lands.
pete_dushenski: phf: trust me when i saw that it's even worse when the arivistes come rampaging through town in a flurry of nownownow-ism and tear the whole lot down right before your eyes.
phf: on the other hand you have fishtown and north, forther industrial centers (long out of business companies that used to make ship and locomotive engines and such) are now either ghettos or white trash areas.
pete_dushenski: at least the ghetto creep is...slow
pete_dushenski: the apes don't have cranes, wrecking balls, and tnt
phf: i agree though, i like that philly is a no mans land, since there's no developers or Control or particularly strong presence of usg.
phf: there are parts by the waterfront where on weekends you can see an assortment of underclasses and weirdos. mexicans fishing, blacks riding dirt bikes, white trash drinking. kind of cool, i'll take that anytime over the overdeveloped DC ☟︎

kuzetsa: my coupling to assbot was always 2nd level before today
kuzetsa: and I think maybe an op or two who uprated me ended up neg-rated by enough people who were 1-degree coupled to assbot or ... IDK really
kuzetsa: it wasn't anything I personally did or caused

kuzetsa: <an op or two who uprated me> ~ specifically I mean #bitcoin-otc and #bitcoin ones... at some point I think people in here had a falling out with them
kuzetsa: well yeah, but I think maybe originally I was only able to self-up because of nanotube having uprated me
kuzetsa: and maybe 1 other person

danielpbarron: kuzetsa, you still hang out in -otc ?

adlai: some professions employ jargon, and there's a reason for it

adlai goes back to spam that costs money
kuzetsa: well you highlighted me several times, and even though the content wasn't anything I immediately understood and related to, the friendly tone seemed welcoming and I appreciate that -- the impression stuck, if nothing else :D
kuzetsa: danielpbarron: one of the main reasons I didn't seek to figure out why I could no longer !up is because I'm legitimately a left-wing democratic socialist and knew who bernie sanders was before he announced the POTUS run
kuzetsa: my political views are frowned upon in here by a few people (at times, loudly)
danielpbarron: well I knew who he was too, but I guess that's because I'm in close proximity to Vermont
kuzetsa: fair enough
danielpbarron: yeah and I'm the only one in here that believes the entire Bible
kuzetsa: curious on that
kuzetsa: literalist or do you understand some of it to be metaphorical / superstitious in nature?
danielpbarron: literal
danielpbarron: you got any money on sanders to win? there's a bitbet!
kuzetsa: Deuteronomy 23:14-15 ~~ always carry a shovel and be sure to use it to bury your poo so god doesn't step in it ... if taken literally, I'm thinking at best the understanding of germ theory wasn't going to be around for over a thousand years so the beliefs were genuinely held, though not literal
kuzetsa: if taken literally though, god was angry and made you sick
kuzetsa: lack of a modern sense of sanitation wasn't the cause, it was god being angry
danielpbarron: well that's a strange translation you got there
kuzetsa: "always carry a shovel and be sure to use it to bury your poo so god doesn't step in it" <<< any translation you want is fine, that's my own paraphrase (I compared several translations for this particular passage, and the meaning is always the same)
danielpbarron: but yes, God does make us sick
kuzetsa: well that's awfully inconsiderate of a deity
kuzetsa: I don't personally believe gods to be that jerk-ish
danielpbarron: Deuteronomy 32:39 'Now see that I, even I, am He, And there is no God besides Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand.
kuzetsa: shrug
kuzetsa: ah ok, that's out of "The Song of Moses"
kuzetsa: context matters
danielpbarron: Exodus 33:13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people."
kuzetsa: hmm
kuzetsa: "Blessing of Moses" too allright
kuzetsa: IDK, the poetry sections of scripture aren't easy for me to take literal in a serious way
kuzetsa: to each their own
danielpbarron: Job 11:11 For He knows deceitful men; He sees wickedness also. Will He not then consider it?
danielpbarron: re: God being considerate
kuzetsa: eh
kuzetsa: Genesis 19:26 ~~ But Lot's wife looked back. When she did, she became a pillar made out of salt. <<< like I said, inconsiderate, I can't hardly undersatand the idea of natural disaster being an act of god, and for something as innocent as looking over your shoulder to be cause for death is p much overkill no matter who you are (deity or otherwise)
danielpbarron: God told her not to look back
kuzetsa: killing someone because they didn't do as they were told is pretty dickish
danielpbarron: not doing as you are told is pretty dickish

danielpbarron: when told by your betters at least
kuzetsa: authority to ... no
kuzetsa: betters don't exist
kuzetsa: that's not a thing I believe in
kuzetsa: it's a philisophical / societal / institutional construct, and not legitimate in any way
danielpbarron: the legitimacy is enforced by the better by virtue of him being better

cazalla_: evening, composing a comment bitching on trilema.com in the meantime
cazalla_: had a few, so you know, wine, truth lol
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu puts !down in a buffer just in case.
cazalla_: meh, i am just angry as i let my guard down the other day and mentioned to someone that considering suicide is a logical and rational thought in this day and age
mircea_popescu: as opposed to which day and age ?
cazalla_: fucking idiots called a CAT (crisis assesment team) on me the other day because hey, if you're not enthusiastic to work shitty jobs to buy coke, watch blah blah housewives on tv and want to pay top dollar for plastic shit out of china, well, ya mentally ill
cazalla_: i dunno what day and age, can't be much worse than the current year
mircea_popescu: in other lulz of all time : new argentine govt negotiated a deal with the agros : govt lets dollar go ; agros stop hoarding and sell. the govt let the dollar go. however, for all its posturing, the buenos aires black market turned out to be relatively powerless in face of this, and so from a 8.5 official / 14.0 black market, the liberalised dollar settled at 13.5.
cazalla_: my fault for being stupid enough to figure someone mature enough to think topping yourself is a reasonable thought though
mircea_popescu: this was obvious to anyone who isn't mentally retarded by virtue of being born out of the union of a lazy man and a stupid cow, like every single argentine.
mircea_popescu: consequently - the cash crop agros (soy) got butthurt and still didn't liquidate.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile however, total sales ytd crossed 3bn usd, up 50% from last ytd. why ?
mircea_popescu: guess.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it was re the entire marginal autistic child trapped in an adult body thing.
adlai: mircea_popescu: as i understand it, 'alphago' is a system for training a go-move-scoring ANN against itself, from an initial seed of positions taken from human games. the product of this is a single instance which can play a game against a human, or itself, and "learn" - producing another instance of itself

mircea_popescu: adlai i didn't get the idea alphago was a single instance.
adlai: the only possible hope I see for a surprise victory is if something qualitatively different happens once they seed the whole story with professional matches. the 'instance' (in the sense of (make-instance 'alphago), not in the sense of "machine") which beat Fan Hui was seeded off amateur games alone.
mircea_popescu: my understanding, quite rudimentary i admit, is that instead of iterating through all possible single-move changes to the board, the machine iterates through "all commonly seen cluster-level changes to the board".

mircea_popescu: which is a cheap heuristic and likely to beat a good chunk of players.
mircea_popescu: and the whole nn talk is just smoke and mirrors built atop that simple idea, basically.
adlai: thus the navel gazing comment. it seems to me that alphago-which-beat-fanhui was analogous to an amateur who spent 1000 "human-years" of time playing against itself, and now has enough "spider sense" for macro-tactics to almost fake understanding strategy
asciilifeform: adlai: this is actually sop in the machine-go business
mircea_popescu: this is, afail, how most people deliberately taught go are taught go
asciilifeform: whereby the whole thing is quite snore
mircea_popescu: it's not necessarily a bad approach, i guess, but it doesn't make for a good player.
adlai: the only unknown in the story is what happens when the seed set includes professional matches... my inkling so far is that amateur matches include good moves, professional matches include less bad ones
asciilifeform: adlai: all training sets include pro matches
asciilifeform: considering that you can get them by the GB !
mircea_popescu: (i don't believe in teaching go. which is to say - i do not believe there is a single thing you can say to a new player whicfh provably does more good than bad.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: to say 'take this pile of life&death problem books and solve all 10,001 problems' is the only thing.

punkman: you buy 2k MPOE shares for 0.00055, you sell them at 0.00056, make enough for the fee. takes about 10 minutes every 6 months.
asciilifeform: and if it doesn't n+0.00001 ?
asciilifeform: then what ?
punkman: you wait another month maybe
asciilifeform: and what, fee is not charged ?
punkman: so?
asciilifeform: so you lose.
asciilifeform: i can lose downstairs in the lottery machine.
asciilifeform: don't need to spend the 10 min.
asciilifeform: take 10 seconds.

adlai wonders what s.mpoe's whiplash peak sigma looks like
asciilifeform: punkman: understand, i will gamble once in a blue moon. but asking me to pay a MONTHLY subscription for access to a lottery machine, is lunacy.
asciilifeform: i don't have to pay MONTHLY to ACCESS bitbet.
adlai: "Account management fee is asked only from accounts that hold any BTC or any assets by 1st of current month"
punkman: well I pay so I can "own" some shares, not to gamble
asciilifeform: wtf is the point of that
adlai: feeling like an owner!
danielpbarron: ask shareholders of qntra over the last months what was the point?
danielpbarron: i didn't sell any of the shares i earned for writing
asciilifeform: i don't recall a qntra dividend .
danielpbarron: i think a dividend is more like a consolation prize
asciilifeform: the 'value so long as everybody doesn't sell' doesn't interest me a lick.
punkman: asciilifeform: I was roped into it after kako and mp gifted me some bbet shares
asciilifeform: danielpbarron: dividend is the only way to get continuous milk from the cow, instead of meat
punkman: o hey my bbet dividend covered this month's fee
punkman: and seems I got about 0.58 for my one qntra article's worth of shares, not bad
adlai: arguably, now that bitbet is getting more advertising, punkman owns part of a brand; practically speaking, one can't buy the bitbet brand without enriching punkman a little (short of shorting s.bbet a lottle)
danielpbarron: if we're gonna compare a stake in a company to a single cow.. it's quite the remarkable cow; one which you can add and remove meat easily without bothering the beast, and milk it too!

linton_s_dawson: It goes without saying that catching up with everything since the beginning (if you are new blood) is tiresome. You could use Search to find discussions on specific topics but will still miss something important.
linton_s_dawson: So the idea is to create "The b-a chronicles" that will highlight important events/discussions/propositions with links to the context. Catching up will boil down to picking a specific date and seeing what happened on that day in a simple manner with links to the context.

punkman: I can see a summary subscription thing making some money eventually
danielpbarron: the weirdness is that i put a block quote in a list item in an ordered list

phf: actually one van dweller i knew was this nasty, 60 year old hippie dude, sort of ram das like character. i think all he did was cruise from one west coast hot spring to another. he would always have an utterly zonkered, 20 year old, supermodel looking girl in his van, every time i'd run into him, a different one.
mircea_popescu: pretty sad huh.
ben_vulpes: better than biodiesel!
phf: i don't know what to think about it. my reaction every time is exactly "huh"
phf: "huh." rather
mircea_popescu: to my eyes it's sorta like the pedo dude who spends a summer to dig a hole in the dirt where to keep 12 yos.
mircea_popescu: turn it any way you want - you're still digging in the dirt with your hands. there's gotta be a better use of one's time.
