phf: there was an occasional poc||gtfo speaker doing not necessarily particularly sophisticated, but at least aesthetically pleasing hacks. and of course you could meet oldfags in the hallways. but even back then you could see that the community is being replaced by martin marlinspooks with throngs on millennial sycophants, but at least you could avoid them if you wanted to. i heard that's no longer the case.
asciilifeform: phf: my 1 'shmoocon' trip more or less cured me of the notion of going to any such thing again
phf is actually going to HOPE, which was always a parody of a "hacker culture", coming as it is from 2600 circles, but at it's in new york and it's an opportunity to spend time with my new york friends. last time i was at HOPE that was 2010 or so, when the whole theme was g.w.bush as 1984/hitler. at least hope delivers in lulz department. wozniak is going to be there, signing apple ii's or whatever.
asciilifeform: one of these things that had its day in the sun, but nao ~dead..
asciilifeform: lol
phf: HOPE is very new york, it's a bunch of fashionistas pretending like 90s never ended and The Hackers was for real

phf: i wonder if some decades are not really destined for a general come back, like the 70s
asciilifeform: and why is their imagination/horizon so weak anyway -- why not instead pretend that 70s neverended and 'wargames' 'was real'
phf: i suspect because the 90s hackers were a lot more mainstream, i mean they had prodigy and orbital, rollerblades and spray painted laptops. i guess wargames is from the time when nerds weren't "cool" at all, though they did have progressive rock, so i guess that counts for something..

'official' www linked earlier -- 100% in ru )
asciilifeform: bahahahaha
phf: amusingly enough if you search "газова горілка" there's a bunch of online stores that sell... gas burners!
phf: (the correct word could also be derived from russian, but it's a different root "пальник")
phf: (for the logs, "gas burner" in russian is "gazovaya gorelka". certain russian words have ukr equivalents where the form modification follows a set of somewhat recognizable rules. the president of ukrain not knowing the correct term of "gas burner" in ukranian attempted just such modification transforming "gazovaya gorelka" into "gazova gorilka", which sounds ukranian and "gazova" is correct word, unfortunately for him "gorilka" only ever means "vodka"
phf: in ukranian)

mircea_popescu: i recall a time fashionistas used to be a californy item derrided on the ny-london axis, and sorta-kinda patronized in paris.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there were roughly similar incidents with ru and ukr folx
mod6: mornin
mod6: !!up pipp8
deedbot: pipp8 voiced for 30 minutes.
mod6: Ah, ok, so they ~do~ have a vendors area at Defcon now. But the registration period for defcon 26 closed April 1st.
mod6: Maybe something we can look at next year.
mod6: Was anyone else at DC10, 11 or 12?
asciilifeform: mod6: imho lolcons are a good way to get two dozen customers... erry single one of whom will be a usg provocateur
mod6: i kinda suspect the same thing.
mod6: anyway, was a thought. I'd like to perhaps continue this line of thinking though ; figuring out ways to help drive some signups.
mircea_popescu: mod6 honestly, if i thought any of this is worth doing i'd do it. from actual experience and as far as i can myself see so far, besides fetlife there's no utility in the fiat bubble-makers.
mircea_popescu: consider this comes from someone who's systematically owned okcupid&every other "dating" "platform", askfm, reddit etc -- every other "social media" platform, who was doing put-flyers-on-posts ~a decade ago~ and just as systematically and so on.
mircea_popescu: and even given this, in order to convert fetlife leads into utility you actually need a dungeon, and the other slavegirls and you know, being the guy whio actually built all that.
mod6: wb.
mircea_popescu: ty.
mod6: thanks for your input. perhaps, the grass-roots thing is the way to go. ``talk to people''.
mircea_popescu: and furthermore -- the "only fetlife" item does not follow from anything personal -- mp is a perv, whatever. it follows from the objective. everything else, even should you acrete something, will be http://trilema.com/2010/problema-cu-crestinii/#comment-126101 << this moron,
mircea_popescu: or if you prefer, douchebag or zx2c4 or kanzure or whatever. the postmodern world consists of a bunch of "directors" (in their own mind) who might maybe consider giving ~you~ a role in their WoWoW thing they've got going -- in their skull.
mircea_popescu: and we're not talking a bunch of little viscontis running around. they're all sorely unqualified to direct breakfast, and this makes exactly 0 impression on their multifolded narcissism. because qualification doesn't even exist, wtf, their qualification is existence, rite.
mircea_popescu: yet from the other hand, as true as the foregoing may well be, the question "and what's one do to, live in the bubble he was born and die there also ?" stands, of course.
mod6: yeah, "mommy said I can do anything"
mircea_popescu: after all, what is http://trilema.com/2012/la-terra-trema/ if not the story of some guy trying to escape acitrezza. so i have no beef with the idea in principle, and on teh contrary, i do believe erryone should try whatever sounds good. who knows, maybe we're missing something.
mircea_popescu: mod6 practically speaking, the only important difference between the "7 bn people alive!!!" and the "n trillion people dead" is that the corpses don't usually use up resources.
mircea_popescu: it's difficult however to illustrate just how deeply the self-delusions go. i mean, by example : changed4good 21F Little "Now why would i serve you? You havent earned my submission. In fact i dont know you one bit and clearly you dont know me by your comment." LordMPofTMSR "'Earned' your submission ? Get over yourself. The fact that you don't know me is a) your fault of which b) you should be ashamed and c) working to remedy
mircea_popescu: ."
mircea_popescu: somehow this plain fact is not merely not obvious, but its landing hits like a mallet, "omfg, you seriously mean my own maturation is my own fucking task before the world ?! kids gotta learn how to walk, it's their job, really ?! i thought nobody had any jobs, we just swing in the tide like algae blooms!"
mod6: These are pretty eye-opening. Heheh.
mircea_popescu: the cult of inutility wishes to salute you.
mod6: I don't know shit about BDSM, but I'd gather if one slut wants to submit, she wants to submit. Not have a debate about how someone needs to earn the submission.
mod6: Maybe 'wants' doesn't even figure into it, for that matter.
mod6: Just, sub-slut does as commanded. Or is not a sub-slut.
mircea_popescu: (for completeness, the response, too long to fit in the usual style : http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/BGbUw/?raw=true tl;dr of course http://trilema.com/an-examination-of-conflict item ; in this case "i don't want to join a cult" stands for "i am already a proud member of the cult of inutility and won't be getting out".
mircea_popescu: mod6 well yes but wot, mate. if she dun know you ?
asciilifeform: lol the whole notion, that there's this 'outside of cult'
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform hey, as a scientist i have left all biases behind!
mircea_popescu: note the "as an X" device, because indeed nothing's quite as juicy as self0irony
mod6: mircea_popescu: fair enough
mod6: bbs, meat
mircea_popescu: anyway : a) even when it works, ie, you have all the (expensive! extensive!) toolset to convert seawater uranium into actual rods, b) you're talking ppm at best, and c) lulzbricks come 100:1 if not 1000:1.
mircea_popescu: (but, for having teh blog, i am in a position to derive a little bit of ev out of the overabundant lulzcow, also!)
mircea_popescu: so in short & in conclusion : building a dechumpatron very much open problem, precisely because (unlike chumpatrons!) it proposes to go ~against~ thermodynamics.
mircea_popescu: ie, it is a proper machine, rather than chucka-ism.
mircea_popescu: open problem as it may be, it is certainly a fact that the only way to power the going against thermodynamics is ~by the chump's own internal state~. which is the practical & useful meaning of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-21#1828126 "the curse".☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-21 16:26 Mocky: ok well, thanks. hopefully that doesn't curse me. but also i "have" "bitcoin" in various dark markets that i want to actually own and I don't trust them to send accurate decimal to trinque's walletron
mircea_popescu: and as far as can be discerned, the only chumps in an internal state compatible with de-chumpifying are in the bdsm scene. but i'd ~love~ to hear of others.
mircea_popescu: (however, i do not suspect there are, for the following reason : the bdsm scene consists today of 1% kinksters and 99% girls and women looking for a dechumpatron. ~all the kids who in a normal world'd have been moving things ended up there, seems like, and this is very good indicator that there's not other boxes available)
mircea_popescu: anyway, the foregoing isn't some kind of major discovery -- everyone's solution to civilisation was "gotta use orc's own forces", from the latins to the 1800s folk. cuz obviously.
mircea_popescu: but in http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-27#1830163 : consider that inca didn't come up with this, but rather it is entirely supported by, and a product of, the cultists of inutility own' busybox processes. girl says "X is A TACTIC USED BY ABUSERS!!111" without skipping a beat ; and the observation that eating -- also "tactic used by abusers" doesn't ripple her smooth surfaces at any point.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-06-27 16:45 asciilifeform: in reich courts, facts are entirely optional, 'mens rea' suffices, 'he thought it was a genuine death ray', 'he bought the sugar from usg agent thinking it was cocaine, guilty of 25 pound of cocaine, 25 to life, next' etc.

asciilifeform routinely uses yandex to dig up old trilemas on keyword

asciilifeform: incl in somewhat unexpected places ( talk to folx making vessels for liquid he, where pretty much all metals are porous )
mircea_popescu: for instance. but widely applicable. for instance -- did you know gekko ~skin~ is actually bactericidal ? most gram-negatives fail to survive the contact.
mircea_popescu: the cause is related to that "On the basis of the model, each linseed oil molecule appears to displace 90 water molecules and occupy 6 hydrogen bonding sites in the wood."
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the ameritards copied the tech, made 'bactericidal plastics' for just about errything in household, guaranteeing the proud owner a high quality gram-positive experience..
mircea_popescu: myeah
mircea_popescu: what can you do.
asciilifeform: upstack, moar lol, e.g. 3 past-pefect tenses. reminds of hungarian.
asciilifeform: *perfect
mircea_popescu: romanian also has them.
asciilifeform: canhaz example?
mircea_popescu: there's three futures (plain future, perfect future, future-in-the-past) and a counterfactual tense (techniucally, also a future).
mircea_popescu: and there's like 7 pasts.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform alright, with examples :
asciilifeform: 'counterfactual' -- subjunctive, in eng terminology
asciilifeform: errybody has that one
mircea_popescu: no, romanian has that separately.
mircea_popescu: conjunctive ("eu sa fac") vs putative ("eu as face") and perfect putative (eu as fi facut).
mircea_popescu: approximately, "i'd be doing"/"i should be doing" vs "i would/could/might/etc be doing" vs "i w/c/m/etc have done".
mircea_popescu: and eys the conjunctive has a perfect (eu sa fi facut)
mircea_popescu: but anyway, leaving these nonpredicative perfects aside : imperfect (eu faceam) ; composed perfect (eu am facut) ; pluperfect (eu facusem) and simple perfect (eu facui)
diana_coman: known best from "facui si dresei, cu nimic nu m-alesei" :P
mircea_popescu: haha
asciilifeform: eh these correspond to earthing, i.e. делаю , сделал бы, я бы сделал , as i understand
mircea_popescu: well yes.
asciilifeform: *earthling
mircea_popescu: except you have 3 and i listed 4.
asciilifeform: can haz demo that hinges on the 4th ?
mircea_popescu: ma dusei la mindra-n sura si-i copsei o tochitura ?
mircea_popescu: check me out, i even poetry.
asciilifeform: lol neat
mircea_popescu: [approximately, i went into my girlfriend's hay warehouse and fried her some stu]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you can reliably distinguish philologist from plain romanian, as the latter's not going to be able to produce the simple perfect form for the "a coace" verb.\
mircea_popescu: because yes, romanian may have 4 past perfects + a bunch of past conjunctives, putatives, supines and whatnot. and they're even intensionally distinct. but this dun mean most speakers can even notice the distinctions.
asciilifeform: the spammer folx who originally started asciilifeform on rotaku career, i suspect were not quite philologists.
mircea_popescu: you think ?
asciilifeform: experience similar to doing goethe after 'hande hoch, hitler kaput' de
asciilifeform: asciilifeform in particular is fascinated with the mega-puzzler of how the fuck pieces reliably fall off a lang. e.g. ru lost vocative case, but, say , czech, still has it
asciilifeform: any idjit can tell that the spring unwinds, e.g. the english lost good chunk of what i think of as basic moving parts of their lang, didn't even take 500 yr. but what ~winds~ the spring ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, the simple perfect is deeply linked to [popular] poetry, such as say http://trilema.com/2014/maramu/
mircea_popescu: this because it's very strictly phonetically confined, so it works well for the continuation of classical poetry. because yes, ro has its own, unknwon, carmina buranas.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dunno, patriarchy ?
asciilifeform: e.g. jp has only handful of tenses, and lacks ( just as cn ) noun genders or distinction b/w singular/plural
mircea_popescu: one of the principal drivers of my cultural suspicion of the yellow folk.
mircea_popescu: wtf, genderless language ~= idiocy.
trinque: asciilifeform: don't they do number with "particles" ?
asciilifeform: trinque: they do.
asciilifeform: lotsa lotsa particles.
trinque: I can kinda squint and see stems and inflection in that
asciilifeform: trinque: as i understand , all of the 'agglutinative' langs (e.g. turkish) work this way.
trinque: what is it, "wo" is I, "wo men" is we. "wo men de" is our.
trinque: if they had a proper writing system, might be womende by now
asciilifeform: trinque: they have not 1 but 2 'proper' systems, just slow to switch.
asciilifeform: sorta the 'c++ problem'. 'i learned 15000 hieroglyphs and so will you, boy'
asciilifeform: iirc mcarthur originally planned to ban hieroglyphs, but ended up relenting
trinque: depends on whether that barrier is keeping the right folks ~illiterate
asciilifeform: trinque: they seem to like their wall, aha
asciilifeform: sorta how even the english folx resist phonetization
