mircea_popescu: so here's a question/job for any ai/machine reading afficionados :
mircea_popescu: currently, trilema title redirects one if clicked ot a random (english language) article. what i'd want it to do is to redirect one to a randomly chosen ~related~ article.
mircea_popescu: how do you establish relatedness of texts 500-1k words long out of a list of thousands ?
mircea_popescu: an' in morning news, http://67.media.tumblr.com/6e4945b5fcff01f31591c2c1e1229015/tumblr_mxeqm89D5p1s7wncoo1_500.gif
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-24#1471087 << this isn't even an idle consideration as all that. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-05-24 02:57 funkenstein_: "Nero is white and Porter is black. " <-- they reference no measurements of epidermal albedo. how disappointing, we find that such an important detail
mircea_popescu: a large factor that collapsed "the quaint institution" (from the pov of the insiders, mind, who cares what foreigners think) was the sheer inability of distinguishing at the edges. "why is this white man black ?" "book sez so"
mircea_popescu: generally, linking societal preeminence to phenotype has the major disadvantage that men (and no, NOT women, as the claim is currently fashionable among wanna-be republicans without the republic) broadly prefer to fuck socially inferior women.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: friend actually wrote is masters thesis on this iirc (not that you care about appeals to bureaucracy, i know) on this, i can later check for linx. new shit in town is compositional distributional models of semantics. see http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/activities/compdistmeaning/ - also i can dig up our application for funding for doing what you want to do i think :D
mircea_popescu: in fact the historical justification for broad female slavery is that the sex is better that way. ☟︎☟︎
mircea_popescu: Framedragger ehehehe i'd read what you dig up, so by all means.
Framedragger: lol @ title on that cs.ox page "meets quantum info flow".. it's just that they use cool shit from category theory, tensors, etc.. but need to be careful not to be drawn into believing a priori what the people in the tower say
mircea_popescu: wtf is with this "quantum" shit anyway.
mircea_popescu: us stem edu went to udder crap.
mircea_popescu: QUANTUM JUST MEANS DISCRETE MOTHERFUCKERS! ☟︎
Framedragger: dis not US (well but effectively US, yea)
mircea_popescu: damned town population is a QUANTUM VARIABLE!
mircea_popescu: uuuuu "i fucking love science, look at all deze galaxy catpictures"
mircea_popescu: idiots.
mircea_popescu: wtf is "quantum info flow" supposed to even be ? what random exotic property of subatomic scale did they arbitrarily decide to use the wrong word for ? is it lorenzian flow, ie, if you face it head on you discover there's really not that much, for it somehow contracts, whereas from aside it seemed like there's a lot ? i noticed this property!
Framedragger: some time ago upon enquiring on his work i was told to read http://anthology.aclweb.org/J/J15/J15-1004.pdf and http://nlp.stanford.edu/projects/natlog.shtml but i can't recommend in good faith, for i haven't read myself. nevertheless should be relevant stuff. but not at implementation-ready-to-use-level...
mircea_popescu: or maybe it's schroedingerian flow, ie, it's only there if you don't look. like social media utility.
mircea_popescu: or maybe something something relativistic something ? another word they raped with the flaming globes of zigmund.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger ima skip the pdf for want of a blowtorch, but lessee the other.
mircea_popescu: (ftr my idea was to enumerate all words that appear more than once less than a dozen times in the whole article body, then consider "related" articles which diverge from the average in the same way on the same words, with arbitrary cut-offs. none of which is anything but 1800 tech)
mircea_popescu: Framedragger omfg tell your friend to not use dead three letters, such as "NLP" in grant applications. suicide pact what. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: check this shit out omg, they're "taking it back" http://nlp.stanford.edu/static/img/logos/nlp-logo-small.gif
Framedragger: heheh.. natural language folks actually employ NLP all the time, though it's become a bit of a catch-all shitty acronym, like A.I.
mircea_popescu: mandatory https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWdVwt2deY4
mircea_popescu: Framedragger except anyone with money remembers it as "neuro linguistic programming"
mircea_popescu: you know, how to pick up sluts in the 80s
Framedragger: anyone with money, rly?
Framedragger: yeahyeah meknows the other reference
Framedragger: hm
Framedragger: all in academic circles (i can hear our snort from here heh:D ) resolve it to the other reference, mind you
mircea_popescu: well, maybe not mathematiclaly "any", but...
Framedragger: *your
mircea_popescu: i dun think so.
Framedragger: yeah you know what, re. your idea, this is shit overwhelming, i'd also start with what you had in mind.. and think of simple markov models, etc.
Framedragger: /me off for the time being
mircea_popescu: fucking academia. in the rare cases they have a sane link, it's because they couldn't link to a list of pdfs from within their excel spreadsheet.
Framedragger: p.s. so you don't read PDFs out of principle/security? i hear you.. but now i want to write some simple on-demand pdf to html converter just so i can send you goddamn PDFs to look at
shinohai: bwahaha BingoBoingo forbes just now writing about gatecoingate http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertolsen/2016/05/24/hackers-steal-2-million-from-bitcoin-exchange-in-hong-kong-bounty-offered-to-recover-funds/
shinohai: Eleven days after Qntra'd
mircea_popescu: Framedragger asciilifeform had some sort of convertor either.
mircea_popescu: but i don't read them out of principle, yeah. nothing to do with security per se, it's all political. in general i don't wish to encourage adobe ("oh, we couldn't do without them" bullshit, it's exactly the "Social media network effect matters" sole argument of usg it corporatardia) and in particular i don't think very much of what someone who expresses themselves in pdf might think or say. much like i wouldn't have read nigg
mircea_popescu: er speech in 1750, because who the fuck cares what some voodoo practitioners think of any topic whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: except bureaucrat is the new nigger.
shinohai: http://linux.die.net/man/1/pdftohtml <<< worx
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: but this means you preemptively dismiss, say (as an offhand example), lotsa mathematicians who put their stuff as preprints on arXiv and the likes. (generated with free software and renderable with free software (but, yes, using a shitty proprietary-wannabe format nonetheless))
mircea_popescu: sane math people use tex.
mircea_popescu: seriously, someone who uses pdf is a mathematician in the sense condolezza rice was an expert and obama a nobel prize winner.
Framedragger: ..and then they render to pdf. but yeah good people also link to tex source on their websites, true..
mircea_popescu: like the guy was asking yest "am i still welcome here", what the fuck do i care what they do to it. they can take the thing and put it through a leetspeak converter for all i care, what diff does it make.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo so lisa dib is some strange aussie who is too fat to fuck dudes but discovered dogs don't mind. so she;s given up on dating and moved on to kennel life. good for her!
mircea_popescu: "I’m all for filth but on my terms, bucko." << they can't quite figure it out lol. the ~only~ "on my terms" woman gets is if her terms happen to (silently!) coincide. otherwise... it's the dogs.

mircea_popescu: it'd seem no new factor after all ?

mircea_popescu: ie, an individual usg black dude sided with the usg side.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how did you even conceive of dividing latest gcd by earlier. it does nothing useful
mircea_popescu: i do random shit like that.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well, gotta stir the pot if they are going to make a black spring happen in Baltimore
asciilifeform: yer making a good case for massaging out the primez
mircea_popescu: so the new factor is a composite of the old factors ; both of them
asciilifeform: before displaying
mircea_popescu: you don't think this peculiar ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: nope. exactly how 8ball worx
asciilifeform: the only way it worx
mircea_popescu: you'll have to explain this to me again, i just thought the 8ball is a product of primes up to x
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: so if the product of primes up to x shook out a composite that includes NO OTHER FACTORS than the primes already found through mutual gcd'ing of extant keys
BingoBoingo: In other not quite news: Facebook is revamping how editors find trending stories. "We could not fully exclude the possibility of isolated improper actions or unintentional bias in the implementation of our guidelines or policies," Facebook general Counsel Colin Stretch wrote. Of course, Facebook is going to train the human editors who work on their trending section; they're also going to abandon several automated tools it used to find an
BingoBoingo: d categorize trending news in the past. Recode provides some examples, writing, "[Facebook] will no longer use its "1K list," a group of 1,000 websites it used to help verify headlines." Facebook will also get rid of several top publications, including the New York Times and CNN.
mircea_popescu: these primes must then be some pretty fuckingmagical primes, and not the result of rand seeding.
asciilifeform: and if gcd was once p1*p2, and now it is p1*p2*p3
asciilifeform: then!
mircea_popescu: yes ?
asciilifeform: and what's more, this is how random turd behaves (try it)
asciilifeform: loads of tiny primez
mircea_popescu: well yes, because the probability of 5 being a factor is 1/5 and of 17 1/17, so three times rarer.
asciilifeform: prime num theorem, etc
mircea_popescu: ima go shake out these three numbers now and see.
asciilifeform: also i had dream with motherfucking ~kirschner~ in it

mircea_popescu: the fugly argentine ex president ?!

mircea_popescu: so now : we found the extra prime, 561001871.

mircea_popescu: 3, 7, 61, 293 and 6700417 we knew from before.

asciilifeform: and here i was expecting some deserted island or spanish fort
asciilifeform rockets off on small tour of BingoBoingolandia tonight
mp_at_olivos: anyway, since i got a little time here, to round off the whole bitbet thing
mp_at_olivos: the theory whereby "dead to me" is supposed to read "holds a substantial fraction of my assets" and "the difference between these two statements only appeared to me sometime late may, which is coincidentally months after the alleged causative event and also within minutes of channel discussion of the fabulous failure of the miner cartel love tap and subsequent attempts to cover it up" may be either partially false or entirely ☟︎
mp_at_olivos: the one thing it can´t be is actually true.
mp_at_olivos: obviously, there´s a peculiar path through the lies we´re suggested to take as per the usual "modern democracy" or "science" or whatever the fuck,
mp_at_olivos: but honestly the only thing that comes to mind looking at it is, how the fuck are all the fruits of the socialist tree always the same identical shit.
mp_at_olivos: this could be "saddam has wmds!!11" for the same exact contortion value.
mp_at_olivos: but this nonsense aside, the fact remains that as far as contracts are concerned, kakobrekla´s idea of bitbet wind down was for him to run off with the assets.
mp_at_olivos: i forced a more equitable solution, by which everyone got paid, him included.
asciilifeform: how could he lift the assets if mp was treasurer ? ☟︎
asciilifeform: (it would have to be by bamboozlement ?)
mp_at_olivos: nevertheless, that solution does not provide him any indemnity for his idiotic behaviour. to my eyes the shareholders have decent claims for destruction of value against him,
mp_at_olivos: and should they actually decide to pursue that, the 670 btc he made off with wouldn´t suffice to cover even the principal.
mp_at_olivos: iirc bitbet traded easily 4x that, and of course there´ll be whatever fees there´ll be.
mp_at_olivos: so in practical terms, he can´t treat that sum as anything but a risk provision, and in no case can proceed to spend it.
asciilifeform: who's gonna pull it out of him ?
mp_at_olivos: this practically means he´s bankrupt, and dealing with the bankrupt is always a risky proposition for the mindful businessman.
mp_at_olivos: or, as the story goes, http://trilema.com/2015/heres-what-they-dont-tell-you-when-they-bring-you-those-papers-to-sign/
mp_at_olivos: asciilifeform: i don´t know if anyone is or isn´t. but that´s besides the point.
asciilifeform: iirc even pirate, sitting on the stake, never coughed up the coinz
mp_at_olivos: business is what it is, by its own laws, not what derpy mc herperson "feels" it should be in his special pleaded case.

asciilifeform: jurov: what's that to do with me.
jurov: just in case you'll start having treasonous thoughts to sell some shares and withdraw from mpex
jurov: yes, i know so far you never strayed from faith
asciilifeform: but think about it, if the business consists of ~you, and you quietly sell shares to randos and remove all incentive for yourself to do your duty...
asciilifeform: what's that make you.
asciilifeform: i explained years ago that i never expect to sell my s.nsa shares, no matter how the thing goes -- for this reason.
asciilifeform: which is likewise why not having mpex acct never especially bothered me.
jurov: if my business lays golden eggs at least nce few months, why would it do it?
jurov: *why would I do it?
asciilifeform: it never wholly made sense to me why to issue shares for a thing made of one or two people. ☟︎
asciilifeform: considering that any selling is a serious signal of ill-confidence in own victory
jurov: to sell half of future golden eggs upfront to investors?
asciilifeform: yeah but imagine selling ~all~
asciilifeform: and you are the goose.
asciilifeform: why would anyone take you seriously after that ?
jurov: kako sold all?
asciilifeform: in ancient times, when you sold yourself into slavery, at least you'd be collected physically
asciilifeform: jurov: i have nfi what kako sold or did not sell.
asciilifeform: but if he sold the bulk of his bbet holding ahead of time, then yes, it was a betrayal
jurov: he had 25% that was not on mpex thus not possible to sell. then he got another 25% which was *supposed to be sold to public*
asciilifeform: in the meat world there were legalisms like 'key man clause' etc. for such cases.
asciilifeform: jurov: he easily could have sold the 'unsellable' 25%, by ~promising the coin~ in the future.
asciilifeform: all he couldn't do is ~sell it on mpex~, legitly
asciilifeform: jurov: understand that the blade of conspiratorial conjecture has ~two~ edges.
asciilifeform: and can cut as easily in one direction as the other.
jurov: im confused. what am i supposedly conspiring here?
jurov: you are conspiring he sold something he should not as per some sinister end
asciilifeform: jurov: well not you, or at least , not here.

mircea_popescu: i guess.
jurov: so, he had the premeditated plan of selling them and then waiting for a year to pull the plug?
mircea_popescu: "the car worked fine until itblew up, producer not liable"
mircea_popescu: jurov what difference would it make ?
mircea_popescu: forget this entire "what derp meant to do". it's uninteresting. derp's judged on what he did. and if i'm to pay ~20 btc which nobody disputes i actually spent, because that's how the stars alligned, kakobrekla can sure as fuck pay ~2k btc that some think he earned, because that's how the stars lined up.
mircea_popescu: davout set the precedent in, dangerous as it may be, we're now with it.
mircea_popescu: he is, of course, idemnified as per contract to "amt actually realised". which is, to date, 670 btc and change, so there is that.

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-05-24#1471379 << no, we don't. we have the situation where kakobrekla destroyed 2-3k btc of shareholder value, and the reasonable, at least to my eyes, civil claim against him by the victims. ☝︎

mircea_popescu: right.
asciilifeform mostly ignorant of the story, but isn't that sorta what his life is about ?
mircea_popescu: no, pointedly not. because it's surogate fiction for castrated 1950s boys.
mircea_popescu: so the story is not at all about this ; it's all about how it could be this, and then becauser it could be, it's ok that it isn't, and so he's "law abiding"
