mircea_popescu: so based on mike_c's discussion last night, i think i have a very good addition to b-a kako. it'd go like this :
mircea_popescu: 1. somewhere on b-a website there's a text form where people can submit random text up to say 16kb in length. this all goes into db.
mircea_popescu: 2. once every 512 seconds, submitted text is checked. all that is clearsigned content by signatures in assbot's l2 gets bundled together, hashed and the hash is included in a special tx through which b-a pays 1 btc to itself with a decent miner fee
mircea_popescu: 3. once this tx gets 1 confirm, assbot makes an announcement here. "statements from mircea_popescu, mike_c, kakobrekla : b-a.com/registrar/blockxxx"
mircea_popescu: that way we have a quite useful registrar of deeds
mircea_popescu: if financing ever becomes a problem can always charge people who do over say 2 a month X btc for using it.
punkman: mircea_popescu: instead of sending 1btc back and forth, it should make a provably unspendable tx
mircea_popescu: why ?
punkman: less stuff in the blockchain
punkman: also miners don't have to keep it in the unspent transactions list
mircea_popescu: how is it less stuff in blockchain ?
mircea_popescu: also, check out this slut : http://38.media.tumblr.com/b416d816f341a5e8f9d709f89b2e0243/tumblr_n5sjuvtgBr1rdsufgo3_250.gif
mircea_popescu: we shall be seeing more of her during today.
mircea_popescu: punkman a tx is a tx, whether unspendable or not it's the same length no ?
punkman: I think the script is shorter for the unspendable tx
punkman: not having to keep it in unspent tx list is the more important part as I understand it
mircea_popescu: if that's true i doubt it's significant tbh
punkman: but not like you'll be making tons of them anyway
punkman: yeah
mircea_popescu: well, it's definitely the blockchain-friendliest approach, seeing as only a hash is stored in the first place. moreover, i don't see how nonspendable tx helps anything other than pruning
mircea_popescu: and i have mixed feelings on pruning and checkpoints
punkman: and in the interest of not writing things twice, assbot could send each bundle hash here http://www.proofofexistence.com/developers

mircea_popescu: i'm not checking some random site i never heard about fwiw.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: it's roughly the system you describe - it stores a hash of a document in the blockchain
mircea_popescu: fluffypony it's missing two key ingredients, the most important one being - done by people i trust.
mircea_popescu: this notion that anyone can randomly decide they'll now develop things works fine for weblogs or w/e
fluffypony: the nice thing is that they have an API for storing and verifying
fluffypony: plus
fluffypony: https://github.com/maraoz/proofofexistence
assbot: maraoz/proofofexistence GitHub
mircea_popescu: the other one is that they don't maintain the records.

mircea_popescu: this is just the offset. apparently you can't get special tints in digital
mircea_popescu: but i tell you by the way... i've seen some machinery on that hunt... this whole town's half a museum
mircea_popescu: except they still run the exhibitions.
nubbins`: i'd say one could dredge up some old letterpress machines down there if one had some time to kill
nubbins`: anyway, yeah, silkscreen beats digital when you get into poster sizing
nubbins`: 18x24" digital-print poster: $15+ per print
nubbins`: silkscreen: ~$4ea in quantity

nubbins`: now, there are back-stops you can use for consistency
nubbins`: but cuttong a 15x22" sheet down to business card size, you gotta keep moving the backstop
mircea_popescu: i got news for you : if your injet desktop printer prnts .1 off center, it also looks like shit
nubbins`: ^ this is true
nubbins`: best you could manage would be to get a stack cutter and slice a stack of sheets all at once
nubbins`: but it's all finicky work
nubbins`: we have a 24" guillotine cutter, anything bigger than that requires a ruler and x-acto
