mircea_popescu: it's either programming, "psychopathy" or else you go on the dole. and no, the sort of job parole officer gets for you ain't anything BUT the sort of "job" "social worker" gets your sister, ie "sit home, be rapebait, here's your supplemental whatever card"

mircea_popescu: yes, but that takes skill. waitressing takes a pulse and not oversleeping too often because you whored out / smoked yourself blank the previous night.
mircea_popescu: which is the traditional point of the expression "union town" : a job you ~could~ do, but won't be allowed to.
mircea_popescu: ie, there's two ways to control overabundant supply : through price and through convention. the union is the latter mechanism.\

mircea_popescu: meanwhile "programming", in the sense (and i quote exactly), "I'm working in corporation in finance and procurement department, so I can sum up my life with : excel, excel, excel, SAP, a little bit more excel" is not actuially a job 90% opf the walkers can do.

trinque: oh wait, d'oh, ben_vulpes wins!
mircea_popescu: hm ?
trinque: faffed first
mircea_popescu: o totally, check that out.
mircea_popescu: apparently it only sticks if you tell it to a girl!
mircea_popescu: for the record, i find it impossible to discern sense and nonsense in this dijkstra article, they're so tightly coupled together.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: which one ?
asciilifeform: d00d wrote a megatonne
mircea_popescu: https://archive.is/wGl74
mircea_popescu: so, the differential of computing speed and movement speed are not directly comparable as he proposes.
mircea_popescu: there's no substantial difference "that has to be accounted for" between bridging the san francisco bay and bridging the mostly dry three metre wide obscure rivulet in ontario that are due to "hey, 3 degrees of magnitude distance ! 12 degrees of magnitude water debit!!" etcetera nonsense.
mircea_popescu: one's in the winter and the other's in the ocean are the important considerations there.
mircea_popescu: applying the "o noes, computer is much faster now" meme as if it meant something only drives home the nonsensical view that "computer is faster". which it fucking isn't, computer of today is well slower than computer of 1980.
asciilifeform: imho better analogy is what happened to telegraphers. recall the fate of the first transatlantic cable ?
mircea_popescu: this is not an isolated flaw : his notion that "oh, those dumb spanyards who didn't think at university" is a typically ustardian misretelling of counter-imagined history.
mircea_popescu: in point of fact, his nonsensical discussion of radical novelties has one effect and one effect only : to drive the pantsuit narrative.
asciilifeform: the cable was destroyed as a result of a very typically 'anglotard' chain of errors; entirely like the microcomp
mircea_popescu: there is ~something~ there being parasitized by all the nonsense, but it is screamingly NOT what he tries to make it be.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform go on ?
asciilifeform: cable, at astonishing expense, was laid; and soon afterwards destroyed by overvoltaging. the operators had nfi that impedance exists, 'book larnin'', and were not satisfied with ~1 baud signal rate , upped the volts...
mircea_popescu: yes but how do you conenct this ?
asciilifeform: the 'degrees of magnitude' item
mircea_popescu: ie they expected a continuous process where n osuch thing was available ?
asciilifeform: correct.
mircea_popescu: this is substantially fine ; but as presented it's a jumble of disjoints. resistance of the medium is in there, but not alone.
asciilifeform: entirely different physical effects ( and exacerbated by the pitiful insulation of the period ) over the distance involved.
mircea_popescu: (quite literal example, impedance is the EXACT name of resistance of medium to em )
asciilifeform: difference in degree becomes a difference in kind. dijkstra imho oughta have mentioned the cable, to stand up his argument
asciilifeform: as it is, there is very little for it in his article to stand up on
mircea_popescu: instead he mentions that some guy said nobody will ever run a 5 second 100m.
mircea_popescu: which is a bizzare choice in all senses.
asciilifeform: with the degree of magnitude faster/more capacitous comp , it is ~stupidity~, in the form of complexicrud, that accumulates fatally. and , worst of all, dijkstra knew this
asciilifeform: showed every symptom of knowing
asciilifeform: but never afaik dared to state the entire case directly.
mircea_popescu: other than saying so and starting a republic.
mircea_popescu: well ?
asciilifeform: errrytime mircea_popescu says this, i find myself trying to picture a pre-bitcoin republic, and end up with mental eggog
mircea_popescu: "how to program if you cannot" is an absolutely fine soundbyte ; and correctly descriptive. but reading the stuff it is mouted in, i can't help but think maybe he meant something entirely else than what it self-evidently means.
asciilifeform: what kind of republic ought e.g. dijkstra to have declared ? a meatspace venetian one ?
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: people have bene FAFFING ABOUT with "bdsm" and "castles in europe" for FIFTY YEARS.
mircea_popescu: dont' give me the "woulda but couldn't". fucktarded bikers had their own republic.
mircea_popescu: where was dijkstra ?
lobbes: http://logs.minigame.bz/2016-01-23.log.html#t23:05:59 << oh hey. looks like diana_coman actually wins 'faff' title - jan 2016!
lobbesbot: Logged on 2016-01-23 23:05:59: <diana_coman> I suppose on really short ones there isn't enough time for all the faffing about anyway; the io thing is 100secs in my books
asciilifeform pictures dijkstra on harley 'hog', vroom
mircea_popescu: and WHY NOT ?
mircea_popescu: do you picture him better going to academia in the same continous way, and faffing about "o, radical nvoelties" ?
asciilifeform: old d00d neh
mircea_popescu: really ? where's the disconnect in this brain ?
mircea_popescu: ooooh i see, OLD is it.
mircea_popescu: well, all the things he deplores are also old.
asciilifeform: and likewise all the things he undeplored
asciilifeform: that's what being old does. errything inside is old.
mircea_popescu: here's a newsflash for you : bikers are mostly old.
mircea_popescu: there's no 19yo biker. there's mostly 50-something war veteran.
asciilifeform: the ones seen at parades -- old. but i suspect they dun much vroom, or otherwise the statistic would do its work neh
mircea_popescu: the pic linked at some point, with the two sluts being fucked on bikes in the 60s, was remarkable specifically because those two guys might've been the yhoungest bike owners in history.
asciilifeform likes to go to , watch , these parades, they are held every year not so far from where asciilifeform lives
mircea_popescu: lobbes o check that out, she had it all along!
shinohai: In heathendom news: http://archive.is/PKy78 (ty asciilifeform !)
mircea_popescu: i deplore the archeologists of the future ; for whatever they do they shall be wrong.
mircea_popescu: shinohai hey, i spent more on weapons systems than computers this year, for the first time since republic.
asciilifeform: shinohai: lulzy, but seems to be rerun ( or was there a piece recently entirely like this one, but with differently named muppet )
mircea_popescu: as the saying goes, "and next year -- we launch rockets"
mircea_popescu: either that or jerusalem. something.
shinohai: Well, republic needs missles too.
mircea_popescu: any time they're ready, bring it.
asciilifeform: i suspect that main enemy of mircea_popescu's weapons systems is tropical damp, rust. the other enemy seems to prefer 'soft' liquishit to actual action, for whatever reason.
