adlai: mircea_popescu: this is because today, bitcoin is useless for poor people, and will remain so, without a reasonably reliable write-cache
mircea_popescu: not so. it is extremely useful : it allows them to save.
mircea_popescu: that is the only social function poor people actually need : a path out of poverty.
adlai: you must not have met any truly poor people, but that's to be expected i guess?
mircea_popescu: that bitcoin allows the poor a venue to actually accumulate capital is really all that matters, for the well being of the world generally.
adlai has friends who can't afford to save bitcoin, because they buy useless shit (incl drugs, and music, and fancy food, etc) instead of "paying themselves first"

mircea_popescu: the poor in all times and places belong on a conveyor belt towards a woodchipper. it is however very important to have a readily accessible door out of the tunnel, for any thinking folk who accidentally fell in.

adlai: thestringpuller: but therein lies the rub. everywhere you go, you'll meet the exception that proves this rule.

mircea_popescu: obviously EVERY naming system will work exactly like the dns, or like the wot works : either be at the table, or be a child looking for parents.
mircea_popescu: how else ?
copypaste: the wot works better than DNS
copypaste: because the WoT is keybased
copypaste: and DNS is fiat biased
copypaste: i would accept a WoT DNS
mircea_popescu: well, yes, because it wasn't made by idiots. but the fundamental point remains : someone excluded could re-use that article by re-writing 5 words.
mircea_popescu: but in point of fact you can run a dns server right now, and tell everyone to use it, and for everyone who does use it... your version of the ns will be visible.

copypaste: the one anyone cares about
mircea_popescu: there is no "real" dns.
copypaste: it's like making an altcoin

mircea_popescu: no, the usg has given icann such authority.

mircea_popescu: and every derp out there in indonesia or peru or wherever saving in dollars in preference of my currency, or his president's currency, has given usg such power.

copypaste: i'm not unfortunately.
mircea_popescu: yes. well, look into the zooko triangle.
mircea_popescu: yes, naming can work like that, if 8chan.co and 94875984375983.jksldak are the same to you.

mircea_popescu: "i want to use the dns for back-up, whenever what ~these~ people use doesn't contain an answer". seems pretty cool.
mircea_popescu: and incidentally, how the dns was actually designed to be used. the current centralist windowstardian webstupidity only works the way it works because of the userbase. the design is fine, but "everyone"| and "has come to expect" and bullshit like that make people pretend like a suboptimal local maximum is relevant to the graph. well... it ain't.

mircea_popescu: "A few take it one step further by initiating violence in hopes of acting as a catalyst for this war. Timothy McVeigh’s goals, for example, weren’t just to murder 168 people, bring down a symbolic building, and punish the government for its role in the standoffs at Waco and Ruby Ridge. He wanted to make his mark in history by providing the Patriot movement with the spark that would light the fires of revolution.
mircea_popescu: Ironically, the Sovereign movement is made up of highly paranoid people who tend to believe that every violent act in recent history is a “false flag” operation set in motion by the evil government, so the odds of such an event triggering a Revolution are quite slim."

ascii_butugychag: (e.g., you don't know EXACTLY bitwise what you want at a step)
mod6: <+mircea_popescu> mod6 what'd be your definition/specificiation for the concept of sigil ? << by definition, for me its a cryptographic signature (embossment) of a given input.
mircea_popescu: mod6 so then what's a seal ?
mircea_popescu: do sigils produce seals or do seals produce sigils.
ascii_butugychag: let's sigils produce seals!
ascii_butugychag: this is the proper meaning.
mircea_popescu: i thought so too.
mod6: ah, to me that's what i took 'sigil' to mean, 'a seal'. I may misunderstand the language.
ascii_butugychag: sigil =~= rsa modulus
ascii_butugychag: seal ~= rsa modular exponentiant.
ascii_butugychag: (at least for now, at some point folks might start using lattice or even, fuck, lamport signatures)
mircea_popescu: maybe in 2017.
ascii_butugychag: (for n00bz: lamport signature is to signing approx. what otp is to encipherment)

mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag what about this fuzzy flow ?

ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: as for 'portage', think about it
mircea_popescu: i am.
mircea_popescu: do tell ?
ascii_butugychag: the port tree does not specify the exact hash of executable built at each point
ascii_butugychag: because nobody has a deterministic builder
mircea_popescu: this simply means the port tree is curreently empty
mircea_popescu: and will have to be filled.
ascii_butugychag: it had, iirc, some (spotty) support for pgp
ascii_butugychag: but nothing that would add up to sanity
mircea_popescu: "smart people disagree because they do not share priors ; idiots disagree because they can't follow implications"
ascii_butugychag: first need deterministic buildatron.
ascii_butugychag: unfortunately this is not negotiable
ascii_butugychag: gotta have this x before you can even think about y-ing.
ascii_butugychag: and deterministic in the ~bitwise~ sense.
ascii_butugychag: as in, i build on nintendo, mircea_popescu on cray, we get same elf output so long as we asked for same target and used same src.
ascii_butugychag: all of the idiot indeterminate hiss on current boxes will have to go.
ascii_butugychag: (recall when we diffed rotor builds ??)
trinque: ascii_butugychag: what did you think of my simply checking the hash at the end of a build target?
trinque: did it for downloads; trivial to do for a produced binary as well
ascii_butugychag: as i said,
ascii_butugychag: no, not trivial.
ascii_butugychag: because gcc is full of shit
ascii_butugychag: it shits out system-specific crud into the build.
ascii_butugychag: try it.
trinque: sure, trivial to check is all
ascii_butugychag: CHECK is useless
ascii_butugychag: needs to DIE
trinque: mkay, how are you going to get gcc shitting consistently then?
ascii_butugychag: for so long as the crud gets put there, you don't have deterministic build
ascii_butugychag: you 1) patch gcc
trinque: sure, I don't disagree
ascii_butugychag: 2) make sure src is EXACTLY SAME on all boxes.
ascii_butugychag: not same binary? won't hash correctly, flow graph cannot proceed.
trinque slaps his forehead
trinque: yes, having a make target fail when a hash fails is a good idea
ascii_butugychag: you can think of this idea as a more fascist version of 'make'
trinque: my makefiles do that
trinque: moves the built target out of the way if it fails
trinque: was easy
ascii_butugychag: presently, 'make' only cares that a particular file name comes to exist
trinque: read teh verify.mk include, does precisely what you're saying
trinque: "CHECK_OR_DIE"
ascii_butugychag: but i was discussing a hypothetical v-tronic variant of 'portage'
trinque: yep, would that not be a tree of v-patches on a tree of makefiles?
ascii_butugychag: the thing to understand is that we are doing something quite analogous to the invention of... SANITATION.

mircea_popescu: trinque yet the explanation is very simple : a certain set of brain circuitry is deeply involved in novel thought (about everything, including mathematics) and at the same time refractary to structure.
mircea_popescu: generally people trying to think in this particular sense try and dope it.

mircea_popescu: this, obviously, is anathema to communication.
trinque: aha, seemed entirely psychological. "the mysterious symbols of the world of mathematics! greek letters even!"
mircea_popescu: it is also fundamentally why math "is hard". for every non-retarded young adult who believes math is hard you have a case of a child who developed his own, highly personal set of shitty symbols, and then never received a good explanation as to what the difference between his and "everyone else"'s is, so got lost.

jurov: "I need your agreement in order to republish your contributions under the MIT license. The reason for relicensing Electrum is two-fold: firstly, we want to make Electrum more attractive to developers looking to integrate lightweight Bitcoin functionality into their systems, and a more permissive license is helpful in this regard."
jurov: "Secondly, we want to release a new version of Electrum for mobile devices and tablets. In order to make Electrum available in various app stores (such as Microsoft's Windows Store or Apple's App Store) we cannot keep the restrictive GPL license, as publishing Electrum on some of these stores may break the terms of the GPL."
jurov: gpl stuff can't be in appstore, rly?
mircea_popescu: are you going to give it ?
mircea_popescu: right.
BingoBoingo: <jurov> gpl stuff can't be in appstore, rly? << Ya Rly
mircea_popescu: miserable move on their part, actually.
guruvan: you not a fan of MIT license mircea_popescu ?
mircea_popescu: but it seems par for the course. all the pimply faced wanna-be bill gates business majors know how to do anymore is cast out a net for suckers, wait until the rate of catch stops, and then try to spin it off and sell it.
mircea_popescu: so everything starts as gpl, welcomes any sucker foss head to contribute, then "progresses" to a mit license and hey, maybe apple wants to buy it!
jurov: probably not. but my contribution was like, 5 lines.
mircea_popescu: it's shameful. if you're going to prostitute yourself, at least do the world a favour and do it in istanbul, in the nude, in the dedicated quarter for ephebs
mircea_popescu: guruvan i like isis a lot more than i like mit.
mircea_popescu: and i'm one of the few guys that publicly burned the coran.
guruvan: well...that's just gonna mean they don't like you :-
mircea_popescu: they're idiots, but at least they're productive. unlike the mit imbeciles who https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ve23i5K334

mircea_popescu: yes. productive.
ascii_butugychag: of what?
mircea_popescu: wake me up when your imperial/european drill bits produced a robot that routed the usg at tikrit.
ascii_butugychag: usg 'fought' to churn inventory and guarantee lockheed et al earmarks.
mircea_popescu: yaya.
ascii_butugychag: and to prevent ghaddafis
mircea_popescu: mit ain't routing anyone. ever.
ascii_butugychag: mit is so that smart kidz dont tmsr.
ascii_butugychag: they actually called me up last month..
jurov: "Hello, thanks for asking, but I refuse to change the license of my contribution. I cannot with clear conscience recommend a Bitcoin wallet with closed source modifications. Would you use one yourself, really?"
jurov: ^ mi rather mild-mannered reply
mircea_popescu: no but you don't understand, they're only trying to.
mircea_popescu: might even make a good qntra piece. this sort of miserable behaviour needs some castigation.,
mircea_popescu: fucking emblematic of the new usa : "1. hey, we're trying to save the world, help us ; 2. hey, the rate at which new people join to help us dropped off so now we'll build an oil refinery instead, maybe shell wants to buy one!"
mircea_popescu: fuck you with a fucking stick, who the heck is supposed to fall for this ?
mircea_popescu: who. 20year olds, obviously. and... they do.
mircea_popescu: same fucking thing with "bitcoin dev companies", however many different groups are running this scam by now.

jurov: <Tribaal> [20151130 17:23] ThomasV: How so? If my fork steals your wallet, I would be pretty sure you'd mind :)
jurov: <ThomasV> [20151130 17:24] that's my point. I think nobody would use a closed source fork
