bitcoinpete: ;;later tell mircea_popescu very sorry about the dubiousity. it's been corrected… the formatting on this one has a mind of its own on the blogs-b-a site but seems to be working well on the blog itself. my guess is the copy/pasting messed it up. thx for taking the time to read it and provide feedback!
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: yee.
Neil: mircea_popescu: So do you ever take a holiday? Or is your life so fulfilling doing your thang that you never want to chill out so that delivering statements in the first few days of each month is never an issue? Is that job subordinated to anyone else yet?
mircea_popescu: well, to split your q up in answerable bits,
mircea_popescu: i'm a reputed workaholic (also see http://trilema.com/2013/zonehedge-wow-such-durden-much-info-about-useless/#footnote_2_51568 )
mircea_popescu: also exact arrangements have never really been disclosed, so nobody actually knows.
Neil: I see, curious why you're waiting for someone to disclose so that you know.
Neil: You robot or sthg?
mircea_popescu: lol
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 85 @ 0.00387499 = 0.3294 BTC [+] {4}
Neil: In a parallel universe with no risk you see, I mighta been interested in investing in some of your ventures. Though the terms are clear, it's also the problem, as a) a 30BTC fine to "play" means there's gotta be something worth playing for, and b) I worry about you getting run over by a bus, for example, because c) it's all really quite opaque and I rate b) as ~2% annually, which is quite a JTD risk.
ThickAsThieves: dont forget coinbr exists
Neil: I've had enough of 3rd parties
mircea_popescu: you can just use a broker.
mircea_popescu: or w/e, be a broker
ThickAsThieves: not all 3rd parties are created equally
Neil: Good incentive to get off my ass and do something useful myself I guess.
mircea_popescu: Neil and now you're coming to the why things are structured this way.
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is not about serving a consumer market.
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is about encouraging people to create.
Neil: Is JTD an understood acronym? Just curious if it's a product of my history
mircea_popescu: which is why we don't want more "adoption". we want more actual penetration. get off your ass do something, cause it ain't gonna do itself.
mircea_popescu: jump to default ?
Neil: Well spent my life getting off my ass doing stuff for others, but no more
Neil: mp: well done
mircea_popescu: i didn't dop anything lol
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's a good chance you misrepresent what "doing for oneself" means in this context.
Neil: Actually 2% is also low; probably 3-4% is better.
Neil: mp: plz elaborate
mircea_popescu: well, it'll be lengthy. the whole story is in an article i wrote about romanians a while back, http://trilema.com/2011/povestea-celor-trei-imparati-smecheri-si-a-celor-trei-negustori-fraieri-fabula-in-versuri-ilustrata/
Neil: impressed by the speed at random linking
mircea_popescu: but anyway, it's something like this : romania emergend in 1989 incredibly poor,
mircea_popescu: with about twenty million people who not only owned nothing at all (literally, a pair of jeans would get you unlimited bjs cca 1988)
mircea_popescu: but more importantly without any of the mental structures that'd allow them to work productively.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.13311598 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: because 50 years under a state directed economy destroys entrepreneurship, something romanians never were very good at anyway
mircea_popescu: (which is a very lengthy discussion also found on my blog, but really not too interesting here, as to why)
mircea_popescu: so this put them in this strange position whereby even if they wanted to, they couldn't do anything.
mircea_popescu: i mean think about it, a country that suddenly needs everything. everything!
Neil: Yeah; the state destroying incentives is something that has gotten so clear to me in the last 2-3 yrs yet I'm baffled by how few around me see it.
mircea_popescu: imagine a town the size of akron, ohio, which has exactly one restaurant in it
mircea_popescu: could you easily make a living for yourself in such an environment ? surely.
mircea_popescu: people need food and plumbing and fguckin shoes and everything.
mircea_popescu: but that's you.
mircea_popescu: the average romanian was too fucktarded to understand even the basics of how economy works. at all.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 2 @ 0.0925 = 0.185 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: meanwhile, the state out of some sort of revolutionary excess or idealistic confusion or whatever, decided it will allocate all its resources to the population. just like that.
mircea_popescu: this yielded two direct results : on one hand, everyone got his house.
blackwhite: morning gents
mircea_popescu: the way it worked was that as long as you maintained employment, you got free housing from the govt dept of housing.
Neil: It's interesting how people believe automation will eliminate their ability to do anything. But it's clear that people always want something more - that's the nature of being human after all. So there is always demand for more products / services. Why isn't that obvious?
mircea_popescu: new govt allowed everyone to "buy back" this at nominal prices. due to inflation the average 800 sq foot apt everyone had ended up costing less than a computer.
Neil: They just want the job they thought they could keep for life, rather than having to think and do something else
mircea_popescu: on the other side of things, the govt decided to split up all the industry, and create a bunch of "shareholders".
mircea_popescu: so, 20 mn coupons were printed, and distributed to each individual.
mircea_popescu: all the companies the state owned allowed the subscription of thes coupons
mircea_popescu: then the yallocated ownershiop exactly the way the original MPOE shares were allocated :
nubbins`: email?!
mircea_popescu: if a company got 10 coupons, every one guy got 10% of it.
nubbins`: o.
mircea_popescu: if a company got 10mn coupons, each person got 0.0001% etc.
mircea_popescu: so suddenly, a bunch of romanians without a clue were real estate and industrial capital owners.
mircea_popescu: what happened ?
Neil: the fittest survived? the rest got eaten.
mircea_popescu: ;;google caritas ponzo

mircea_popescu: "Mugur Isărescu, the president of the National Bank of Romania, estimated that it held a third of Romania's banknotes at one point."
mircea_popescu: this is a story of idiocy and unbridled enthusiasm, and of how very stupid people fail to fall in step with economic structure.
mircea_popescu: while it's easy to laugh at these particular retards, such as the parents of every romanian girl i ever fucked, this is a bit like picking fun at the special olympic people.
mircea_popescu: moreover, the sort of mistake they made, we're not immune from.
mircea_popescu: which is why random fuckwit discovering bitcoin is all about how "I WILL MAKE MY OWN EXCAHGE" rather than "i wonder where i could add my incremental effort"
Neil: mp: I'm curious - how much of your current beliefs are your own, and how much from your parents / schooling etc.
mircea_popescu: in general, ventures made and wholly operated by people who are unable to act economically (which means, collaboratively) are doomed.
mircea_popescu: a point often underscored by buffet re owning a fraction of the hope diamond rather than a whole lump of coal.

mircea_popescu: Neil well how would one know ? probably the best test would be, "how well does your school/parents/etc recognise itself in your beliefs", in which case they're pretty much mine.
Neil: OK, so what led you down your path?
mircea_popescu: what led me ?!
mircea_popescu: nothing leads me dood, i lead it.
Neil: cmon my meaning is clear
mircea_popescu: maybe to you.
Neil: What life experiences changed your thinking from what your were taught to believe to what you actually believe
mircea_popescu: uh.
jurov: Neil, I was profoundly discontent with what i was told
mircea_popescu: what, you actually think that's how it works ?
jurov: and just had to find out on my own
jurov: it's not complicated
Neil: mp: don't understand how your qn relates
mircea_popescu: Neil what people think is not controllable by their life experiences.
mircea_popescu: if it were, education'd be trivial.
mircea_popescu: just put them in a well designed educatron/gauntlet and let them be
TomServo: mircea_popescu: Thanks for the nudge to look at the Berkshire letters. Interesting stuff there.
nubbins`: controllable, no
mircea_popescu: TomServo the guy is definitely more worthy of being read, on a ROP basis, than pretty much any economics professor. and he doesn't even charge.
nubbins`: influenced by, sure, if you let it
mircea_popescu: nubbins` well what's that do.
TomServo: You seem to have some level of respect for Buffet.. so I'm curious what you'd say regarding his comments around the purchase of BNSF
mircea_popescu: sure, it works to a large degree, i can educate my slaves on a very similar process.
TomServo: specifically: At the time, I called the transaction an “all-in wager on the economic future of the United
TomServo: States.”
mircea_popescu: but this doesn't excuse me from having to pick them first.
Neil: jurov: well I realized about 3 years ago that all I'd been told about money (which was almost nothing - an amazing and likely deliberate gap of the education system) didn't make any sense. And I wanted to understand money. Started reading, and 6 months later find bitcoin (2011) and think wow, and then many things all became a lot clearer. Perhaps I'm slow, but in most things I'm not. Just never had really been given the right
Neil: context to think about it.
nubbins`: fancy way of saying that being exposed to ideas will inspire curiosity in the receptive
nubbins`: but being receptive? well, that's your job
mircea_popescu: TomServo yeah. it kinda was.
TomServo: also: And the dynamism
TomServo: embedded in our market economy will continue to work its magic. America’s best days lie ahead.
Neil: mp: I don't understand your point. Deeply held beliefs that are not handed down to you must have been formed by life experiences, I suspect.
mircea_popescu: Neil money is a transcendent you know.
mircea_popescu: there's a three part bit on trilema about essences, which really i'll have to have translated, it's too important.
mircea_popescu: Neil beliefs and experiences aren't telling the whole story.
mircea_popescu: TomServo perhaps he's senile. or perhaps he has a point.
mircea_popescu: i dun see much future in the us, let alone any magic manifest destiny sort of future. then again, im not from there and ostensibly don't much care.
nubbins`: scary place
nubbins`: everyone bought into the hype and now assumes the hype will carry them through
mircea_popescu: see the thing is : there are indeed some hard working us folk.
mircea_popescu: they are surrounded by the night, and the likely result is they will revisit romania's folly
mircea_popescu: each a little emperor on his little lump of coal
mircea_popescu: that's at least two decades of unlimited economic collapse
Neil: So I was at a bitcoin meetup this evening. Japan. Which has recently learned about bitcoin (there was basically zip in Japanese 1 year ago on the internet, now it's on a par with the information / misinformation content that exists in English).
mircea_popescu: by which point other major infrastructural points start suffering, ie, life in town will no longer be possible, but it is required for a certain post 1700 level of social an economic life.
mircea_popescu: so the whole thing can go africa quite easily.

mircea_popescu: ughlol sure, lurk for half year or so.
Neil: Dude, who works for a media company, says "but bitcoin's not stable. Not robust. I worry about ... " and I'm thinking "WTF are you talking about? I can hardly imagine anything more stable/robust". I don't think I can relate on the same level any more. Too many people want "authority" to tell them what to do / think.

Apocalyptic: "Too many people want "authority" to tell them what to do / think." // sadly true
jurov: ughlol: have youread the MPOE-PR forum post on bitcoin enterprises?
Neil: Just coz the price bounces around a fair bit has nothing to do with the robustness of the system.

mircea_popescu: which i don't know because you just dropped here and started talking randomly.
Neil: Fscking Japanese pension system - they lost the records of 20 million people FFS. And then local govt employees were found pocketing money because the records were so inadequate they just could. You can't make something disappear from the block chain. Guy got up and walked off.
ughlol: thanks mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: Neil actually the best measure of bitcoin robustness per se, i would think, is the time - to - hash mechanism.
jurov: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=124441.0 i meant this, but above applies too
ozbot: So you think you're going to start a Bitcoin business, right?
Neil: But we need to regulate bitcoin, not the govt or local govt employees, coz they must be good and proper.
ughlol: not a bitcoin business
mircea_popescu: bitcoin has managed to maintain the time needed to get 2k blocks within one to three weeks in spite of infinite % growth of hash power.

nubbins`: well. "stole" is a bit much
Neil: mircea_popescu: It's nice, but nothing special. Just a self-adjusting mechanism. I think the economics / incentives of bitcoin are the smartest part. And the fact (other than block size which was a short-term expedient solution to a short-term problem) that so much was left to just float (including the creation of altcoins for example). I think that took balls and real insight. Satoshi was a cool dude for whom I'd love to buy
Neil: a beer.
mircea_popescu: but... stability.
nubbins`: ughlol: you may find that the barrier to entry is significantly higher here than many, many other places

ThickAsThieves: word
ThickAsThieves: like any other bitcoin 'perpetual bond' except divs are based on USD rate

ThickAsThieves: but still positive
mircea_popescu: but wait i don't understand. work me through this will you ?
ThickAsThieves: assuming redemption is possible
mircea_popescu: so i buy 100 btc worth of bonds, when btc is 100 usd.
mircea_popescu: on first coupon due date, btc is 200 usd.
mircea_popescu: how much is my coupon ?
ThickAsThieves: An interest rate of ~22%/year (0.38%/week) based on EUR/BTC value at time of issue (eg. ~€0.0032 / bond / week.
mircea_popescu: so i get 0.0038*100 btc * 100usd/200usd ?

mircea_popescu: ok so basically it's a "get no interest and wait for a year to hear which excuse i pick up for not redeeming" ?
ThickAsThieves: well, get rapidly dwindling interest
mircea_popescu: reference being 85dollars/btc...
mircea_popescu: myeah.

ughlol: Im trying to create a rape intervention service in India
ughlol: and looking for investment for the same
ughlol: anybody interested?
ThickAsThieves: a social media rape service?
ThickAsThieves: sounds fishy
ughlol: rape intervention
ughlol: social network with such a feature
ughlol: but rape prevention/intervention is the USP
Azelphur: how would that work? O.o
HowardF: how would such a thing make profit?
benkay: nubbins` yeah lol what is even center of gravity?
ughlol: Azelphur: Imagine you're a girl, if you feel you'll be raped, all you'd need to do is press an SOS button and your location will be relayed to the nearest PD and the friends who are within a few km's radius and your family.
ughlol: HowardF: Ads, etc..
Azelphur: so this is a hardware device?
ughlol: no
ughlol: a software
benkay: apps!
benkay: apps for everyone and everything!
ughlol: Android app that takes advantage of location services
ughlol: benkay: precisely
Azelphur: I see
ughlol: "A seven-year-old-girl was raped on a train traveling through the Indian state of Chhattisgarh, and discarded near a market in Bilaspur City. The rape is believed to have taken place sometime between Friday night, August 9 and Saturday morning, August 10. The perpetrator had forced his way in while the child went to use the toilet, and thrust an Indian 10-rupee note in her hand when he was done."
Azelphur: and yea, where's the profit?
ughlol: I feel pathetic about the condition of girls in my country (India)
ughlol: and how they have no freedom due to some pathetic people (rapists)
ughlol: Azelphur: profit is through ads in the app, and also sponsorship from govt etc.
ughlol: This would be the USP for my app
HowardF: i like the idea, but see any kind of profit unlikely. however asking for donations rather than investments may get you somewhere...
ughlol: USP == Unique Selling Proposition
Azelphur: ads in the app...that sounds like a ridiculously terrible idea for something like this
ughlol: Azelphur: It will be a social networking application that revolves around location services and the rape intervention will be a major feature of the app.
HowardF: agreed. last thing someone about to get raped needs to see is an ad for condoms..
ughlol: Social networks can earn tons of revenue from ads.
ughlol: FlappyBird made around 50,000USD per day from ads
Azelphur: heh
TomServo: How would this work in the train rape scenario you quoted?
ughlol: I think a social network can make similar amounts
Azelphur: ughlol: yes, but flappy bird was an app people repeatedly use, your app isn't, it's one time use
HowardF: ( having written and worked for several very large social networks by the way, let me assure you, ads don't make as much as you think )
ughlol: TomServo: I was thinking of having people register as helpers. People that have reputation, whose identity we can verify.
ughlol: these 'helpers' can help in such emergencies
TomServo: Right.. but the location?
ughlol: HowardF: oh, then I am mistaken.
punkman: ughlol, you need DRONES
ughlol: TomServo: the location would be inaccurate, but it is possible to send an sos message to nearby people based on last seen location etc.
HowardF: i still think there are places and countries where this wouldn't be a bad idea though. india, but also large areas of africa, etc.
ughlol: punkman: haha, i doubt i can afford drones. Cant afford a 2nd hand server.
ughlol: lol
ughlol: HowardF: thank you for the support sir, that means a lot.
Azelphur: yea, I like the idea, there's lots of things that could be done (alarm, contract nearby, just like he says)
Azelphur: but, there's no profit in i
Azelphur: t
ThickAsThieves: ughlol
ThickAsThieves: your idea is horrible
ThickAsThieves: scrap it
ughlol: India is my prime target. I've seen a video that literally made me tear. I would link you, but it is in Hindi..
ThickAsThieves: try again
ughlol: Azelphur: I believe profit can be integrated. If not ads, there are probably other ways.
HowardF: looking for profit while writting this is the wrong idea though. look for donations / goverment / non-profit support instead
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: really? You think so?
ThickAsThieves: also dont go calling things social media (or any other trendy word) just to get attention
Azelphur: HowardF++
ThickAsThieves: it has the opposite reaction
ughlol: HowardF: I agree.
ThickAsThieves: yes
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: You think Im trying to get attention?
ThickAsThieves: you dont advertise to possible rape victims
benkay: ughlol: you're making the mistake of looking at a random event as a reproducible event.
ThickAsThieves: and an app is not social media
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: http://www.satyamevjayate.in/Fighting-Rape/EPISODE-1watchvideo.aspx?uid=E1-EV-V1&lang=hindi
benkay: all app successes are accidents of timing and positioning.
ughlol: Watch it with a translator and then tell me Im trying to seek just attention and scam away some bitcoins.
ThickAsThieves: firstly
ThickAsThieves: you said scam
ThickAsThieves: not me
ughlol: benkay: A rape happens every 18 hours in India's capital city.
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: think what you may.
benkay: ughlol: you fail to make a point.
ThickAsThieves: second, nevermin
ThickAsThieves: d
ThickAsThieves: this deserves no more attention
Azelphur: ughlol: there also seems to be apps that already do most of what you're suggesting
HowardF: in south africa rapes happen every few minutes... there are places where this kind of app could definately be take seriously.
ughlol: benkay: you meant that rape is a radom event?
ughlol: There is currently NO rape intervention/prevention app in the market.
Azelphur: HowardF: agree with you :)
Azelphur: ughlol: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nebulastudios.meagainstrape what's this then?
ughlol: Yes, you're right HowardF
benkay: no i mean that you can't use flappy bird as an example of how much money you'll make, ughlol.
ughlol: oh
ughlol: i see
ughlol: sorry
benkay: it's not going to prevent rapes.
Azelphur: yea, the flappy bird thing was pretty crazy xD
benkay: rapist smacks phone out of girls hand.
benkay: continues to rape.
benkay: your app has failed.
benkay: NEXT.
HowardF: benkay, even if it succeded in calling out for help / support after the fact, it could be useful
Azelphur: yea, that's why I think an alarm would be better, that at least gets the attention of people around you
ughlol: Azelphur: doesn't create an SOS signal with current location using GPS.
Azelphur: an alarm MIGHT have prevented the train one, for example
benkay: or not letting your girl go to the bathroom unattended in fucking india
benkay: this is a human problem, not a technological one.
ughlol: benkay: it may fail. but it will help many.
ughlol: even if it helps 1 person, it succeeds.
benkay: and how will it make money? because that's basically all we care about in here.
ughlol: technology is moving towards changing peoples lives.
benkay: ads are out.
Azelphur: benkay: I think we already established that it won't
ughlol: HowardF: based on your experience, is there no way for an app like this to make money?
ughlol: Maybe not in the millions, but at least a break-even?
HowardF: difficult at best. asking for money to install the app would be insulting. ads would be insulting.
Azelphur: HowardF: my thought with ads was one that it's single use, and 2 accidental clicking lol
ughlol: Ads might not be insulting. After all, its a great service for free..
joecool: <benkay> or not letting your girl go to the bathroom unattended in fucking india < why go to india in the first place
joecool: could go just about *anywhere* else better in the world
HowardF: donations / non-profit status is the only path i could see, but done correctly, that could certianly be a viable option
ughlol: and they can understand that to develop and maintain something like this, we require som emoney.
ughlol: Azelphur: clicking the SOS button can't be accidental.. will implement a simple code or pattern or something so that it cant be pressed accidentally.
ughlol: HowardF: any idea who might be interested to donate to something like this?
Azelphur: ughlol: getting more useless, also re-read what I said, that's not what I suggested.
HowardF: trust me, ads ALWAYS insult people... even on facebook they still get crap for showing ads.
ughlol: oh
Azelphur: I was talking about accidentally clicking an advert during a crisis situation
ughlol: ok
ughlol: ah, i see Azelphur
Azelphur: and if you're having codes and patterns...yea that's so not gonna work
HowardF: i would look for / seek out help from organizations that already deal with rape and rape victims. there are lots, and they would be a good place to start
Azelphur: tl;dr what you want is a rape whistle, it's better than anything you've mentioned
HowardF: some larger ones may well be willing to sponsor or provide a grant.
Azelphur: 1) cheaper, 2) more widely available, 3) has a much higher chance of success
ughlol: Azelphur: Little girls scream for help, and nobody cares. Nobody wants to interfere.
ughlol: This isn't America.
ughlol: Nobody wants to be the hero.
Azelphur: ah, that's shitty
HowardF: also, no reason you couldn't combine a rape whistle function / ping for help in one button press
ughlol: This is India.
Azelphur: but yea, GPS is too far man, that won't work
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 43500 @ 0.00080108 = 34.847 BTC [-] {2}
ughlol: Why so?
ughlol: I think GPS should do the trick.
ughlol: It should give a very accurate location.
Azelphur: best case scenario to get to the destination is 10 minutes I'd say, even if it was just around the corner
Azelphur: by then the attacker is probably done and gone

ughlol: ^
ughlol: true
benkay: what if they're on a train?
Azelphur: ^ that too
benkay: fat load of use this thing will be.
jcpham: train rape
ughlol: benkay: pls scroll up, we discussed that a bit..
benkay: fat load of use this thing will be anyways.
ughlol: yeah
HowardF: and again, even if it can't stop a rape, it could at least call out for first responders / medical help
ughlol: its better than doing nothing
ughlol: and just bitching about every idea that exists
Azelphur: HowardF: yea that was my thinking, it'd be good for after care
ughlol: thinking that it can't help 100% of the rape victims
Azelphur: but that's about all it'd be good for
benkay: nope, shooting down shitty ideas makes the world a better place.
ughlol: To me, even if it helps 1%, its a success.
benkay: to you, just talking about it makes you feel like you're doing something to help
ughlol: i want to make it.
Azelphur: ughlol: that's the thing, I can't even think of any situation where this app would work, at all
ughlol: Not just talk about it.
benkay: so go make it and quit bullshitting.
Azelphur: then go make it, you don't need money
benkay: prove me wrong.
benkay: you don't need money to change the world, just passion and drive, right guys?

benkay: less talk, more do.

HowardF: also, if you actually look at rape statistics, its rarely a quick thing, and often theres a period of lead up before the actual rape, so its usefulness may be greater than you guys think...
joecool: wat
benkay: what about a fucking whistle?
ughlol: Thank you HowardF.
benkay: what about martial arts training?
benkay: those are things that i'll buy might have a shot at changing a rape event's outcome
HowardF: your missing the point benkay. everybody already carries a phone. no need to change existing habits
benkay: no, you're missing the point. this app on a phone isn't changing anything.
Azelphur: ughlol: dowhat...I built fuckloads of shit

HowardF: if you know java, it shouldn't cost you anything but time
Azelphur: note the CRT monitors with tube burnout, laptop with a piece of string supporting the screen, and TV with smashed in buttons.
Azelphur: those were the days folks, those were the days.
ughlol: Yeah, 7000usd = 4,28,190INR. And thats more than 4months of my fathers salary.
ughlol: benkay: ^
ughlol: Azelphur: wow. That does look nice :)
Azelphur: ughlol: that was to disprove the whole you can't start from $20 and skill argument.
Azelphur: here's what I have now, just to contrast. http://i.imgur.com/YOuK4UK.jpg :)
ughlol: $20 cant even buy me a second had server capable enough to handle location services etc.
ughlol: (assuming i coded the app on my own)
ughlol: these things require some amount of investment
Azelphur: ughlol: no, but it can pay for like 4 months of VPS service, which is what I did.
ughlol: but yes, I wont argue anymore considering that there is no profit in the idea.
Azelphur: I had to go to the host and specifically request a 32MB VPS, they didn't sell them, and the host actually told me I was crazy and that I couldn't even get the OS to run in that. But I did, and everything else I needed :)
Azelphur: I probably still have the chat logs from that somewhere, haha
ThickAsThieves: does india not have a polic emergency line?
ughlol: You can get a VPS for 4months for $20?
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: no
Azelphur: ughlol: hell yes, even less now man, this was 10 years ago
Azelphur: now you can get like 512MB for $2, it's awesome
ThickAsThieves: so what happens when rapee uses your app
ughlol: police actually lockup the victim, and also rape her a couple of times.. thats the reality in inda
ThickAsThieves: who comes running?
ughlol: or they tell the victim to compromise and drop the case
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: family, nearby friends and nearby 'helpers'
ThickAsThieves: so it's like a digital rape whistle
Azelphur: ughlol: https://bluevm.com/ $2.50/mo, for example
ughlol: Azelphur: link me? I'll buy it right now..?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The biggest obstacle I'd face putting together a book, especially a BTC one would be getting lines and bettors on those lines such that I could make vig intsead of propping up the otherside of every line.
ughlol: ThickAsThieves: yes, and more effective (imho)
Azelphur: there's another host that is even cheaper, I just can't remember its name off the top of my head
HowardF: actually that again brings up the point of support rather than prevention. it could also summon a human rights / free lawyer to prevent indias corrupt police from harrasing victims
Azelphur: actually, here it is, http://buyvm.net/ $15 / year
ThickAsThieves: the app would be so easy to replicate
ThickAsThieves: i dont see how it can make money
Azelphur: HowardF: now that's a good idea
ughlol: Whatsapp isn't difficult to replicate.
Azelphur: although again, it's all unprofitable
ughlol: There are so many services like whatsapp.
ThickAsThieves: whatsapp had value cuz user data
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Legality wise I'm sure I could just say the book is part of the "Enhanced Reality game Bitcoin" like Micon does
ThickAsThieves: surely you dont intend to sell user data
Azelphur: ughlol: see what I'm saying? Starting up on $20 isn't hard ;)
Azelphur: just gotta be smart.
Azelphur: heck, you could startup on $0
ughlol: HowardF: yes, thats another great idea. Wow. I love discussing this here! :D The lawyer idea.. amazing. Thanks. *Noted*
HowardF: profit with this app is pretty much out. but non-profit support isn't
ThickAsThieves: yes you might be able to get a DV shelter to get a grant for it
HowardF: i think you're just in the wrong room to discuss this particular project
Azelphur: I tend to aim at $0 initial when I'm making new things
Azelphur: but I'm crazy. xD
ughlol: How about asking rape victims to donate after they get saved due to the app.. just to help other future rape victims?
ughlol: Would that also be insulting?
ThickAsThieves: well the problem is that's how he started
ThickAsThieves: who has money for me?!
ughlol: Not highly profitable, but we can make the break-even.
ThickAsThieves: social media!
Azelphur: ughlol: nope, this idea is a nonprofit
HowardF: not as insulting, no, but probably also not anywhere near enough to make it worth while.
ughlol: ah
ughlol: ah well
ughlol: some friends sent me here from bitcoin-otc..
ThickAsThieves: you could make the app and charge DV shelters to implement custom localized versions
ughlol: sorry to waste all your time guys
Azelphur: ughlol: doesn't seem like a waste, you got some ideas, and you have more of an idea of what you can/can't do now
ughlol: Yes, thats true..
ThickAsThieves: you may even make a living of it yourself
ThickAsThieves: but it's not an investment opportunity
Azelphur: hopefully you can make a nonprofit app that does the things we mentioned, like sending out a humanitarian lawyer and someone to help
ThickAsThieves: off*
Azelphur: at the very least you can help some people after the fact, I'd think
ughlol: haha, I wish to make an investment from my social network and leave the USP to actually help rape victims.
ughlol: Azelphur: definitely
ughlol: I will do that..
HowardF: indeed... just a few tweaks and i actually think you have a workable idea.
Azelphur: ughlol: good luck, keep your code lightweight and you can run it on a 128MB buyvm server no problem
HowardF: focus more on support than prevention (though you can definately do both), and focus on grants from non-profits
ughlol: Thats great! :) Thanks guys.. will do. Saved this chat for reference and to remember the suggestions.
ughlol: I'll come back on this chan when I have the app ready and runny, and then make fun of benkay! (Just kidding).

asciilifeform: i have very little interest in the subject of casascius in particular, but in general i like the idea of 'blowing' systems that make false promises of security.
ThickAsThieves: i trust my mom could keep a coin safe, a bitcoin however
benkay: safe + drives + paper backups

benkay: bwaat?
nubbins`: like business signs
nubbins`: i'm not sure if blanks come with paper
nubbins`: err sorry

nubbins`: <asciilifeform> has anyone offered a prize for snarfing the key from an intact coin? << not afaik. would have to be a hefty reward
nubbins`: since any failed attempt would mean the loss of not-insignificant value
ThickAsThieves: not sure who would fund such
asciilifeform: could offer prize specifically for reading the key without physically altering the coin.
asciilifeform: likewise it is not unreasonable to expect players to purchase their own test coin.
nubbins`: you can get brass coins for a premium of ~0.2btc

nubbins`: yeah
nubbins`: 2013 1btc brass ones fetch 1.15-1.3 on the forums and -otc
nubbins`: i've seen some sellers offer 2013 0.5btc brass for 0.69
nubbins`: but i wouldn't sell mine for that low
nubbins`: the silvers fetch a higher premium, you wouldn't see a 1btc silver sell for less than 2.0-2.1
