00:09:35 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.24310363 BTC

00:09:49 kleeck: I knew fraudsters was going to be linked. I just knew it.

00:10:05 ThickAsThieves: no you didnt

00:10:15 kleeck: I did!

00:10:22 kleeck: I even put up a bitbet on it

00:10:35 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 2 @ 0.171 = 0.342 BTC [-] {2}

00:12:09 ThickAsThieves: Evil thought of the moment: Will we eventually see a trend of tricking people into losing their bitcoins? (Decreasing supply)

00:12:34 ThickAsThieves: not scamming, just half-scamming

00:13:38 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 2 @ 0.56000121 = 1.12 BTC [-]

00:13:39 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 2 @ 0.24310363 = 0.4862 BTC {2}

00:14:39 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 4 @ 0.24310363 = 0.9724 BTC

00:16:41 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 1 @ 0.171 BTC [-]

00:16:42 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.24310363 BTC

00:17:24 pankkake: the amounts propably won't be enough for the cost

00:17:42 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 25 @ 0.00569894 = 0.1425 BTC [+] {3}

00:17:55 pankkake: (the cost of tricking people)

00:20:45 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 1 @ 0.171 BTC [-]

00:21:25 ThickAsThieves: passive aggressive scamming

00:23:51 Vexual: pankakke selling boobies

00:24:49 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HIF] 1097 @ 0.00042 = 0.4607 BTC [-] {3}

00:25:07 kleeck: He's got to be selling something, right?

00:25:19 kleeck: Is he done plugging Bitbet every 5 minutes?

00:25:42 Vexual: bow bubudaba

00:25:57 pankkake: I am trying to buy boobies, would be more exact

00:25:58 KRS1: o/ Vexual

00:26:09 Vexual: he

00:26:21 kleeck: Are you bitbetting how many boobies you'll buy/

00:26:41 kleeck: because that's important. You don't really mean anything unless you bitbet it.

00:26:44 pankkake: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=01-02-2014#473235

00:26:56 mircea_popescu: <pankkake> the amounts propably won't be enough for the cost << this is kind-of the birth of dragons.

00:27:14 mircea_popescu: people who dealt in thousands are going to be quite uninterested in helping idiots misplace their half bitcent

00:27:51 pankkake: as for number of boobies, wise words from http://bash.bitcoin-assets.com/?quote=35

00:27:52 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 3 @ 0.24310363 = 0.7293 BTC {2}

00:28:40 pankkake: but even if you have bitcents, people losing bitcents won't make you significantly richer

00:28:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 31600 @ 0.00092896 = 29.3551 BTC [+]

00:29:25 mircea_popescu: in this sense people don't use ebay because people sending them 0.0000000000000000000000000001% of all usd won't make them significantly richer

00:29:30 mircea_popescu: you're thinking like a dragon.

00:30:03 pankkake: I believe the discussion was about making others lose, but not lose to you

00:30:16 mircea_popescu: " helping idiots misplace their half bitcent"

00:30:28 Apocalyptic: if you send coins to limbo, every holder profits

00:30:39 pankkake: yes, I am not arguing against that

00:30:41 Apocalyptic: so that's kinda "lose to you" in part at least situation

00:31:09 mircea_popescu: well otherwise, what exatly are the fixed costs to scamming ?

00:31:29 mircea_popescu: or weren't you really referring to what ThickAsThieves was saying ?

00:32:22 pankkake: I feel like no one is understanding each other

00:32:37 Vexual: bow bubudaba

00:33:11 mircea_popescu: lol irc, it happens.

00:33:58 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 3 @ 0.24310363 = 0.7293 BTC

00:45:39 mircea_popescu: where you get to "hiring lawyers, with a degree or comparable experience and attention to detail" it becomes quite hilarious.

00:45:49 mircea_popescu: perhaps they also sew footballs.

00:47:52 mircea_popescu: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4359 << generally a good read for eager minds and benkay.

03:15:29 jurov: yes almost

03:15:48 jurov: it was complicated process and still not finished

03:17:40 herbijudlestoids: this interview is supposedly about decentralisation of energy but seems to cover the idea that crowdfunding, p2p lending etc: "Even the assistant director general of the Bank of England, Andy Haldane has said this is showing signs of becoming such a trend, such a potential mega-trend, that it could disenfranchise the main banks, the high street banks in the way that I think some of these trends in renewable energy

03:20:19 herbijudlestoids: i guess this is the article he was referencing http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/banksandfinance/9749573/Crowdfunding-could-revolutionise-lending-says-Andrew-Haldane.html

03:20:51 herbijudlestoids: definitely considering the aggregate demand for junk bonds it does seem there is a lot of stupid people out there willing to fund anything

03:21:02 mircea_popescu: derp.

03:21:17 mircea_popescu: imo "crowdfunding" as in, kickfunder etc is a fad not unlike social media.

03:21:28 mircea_popescu: then again, i'm the god of bias.

03:21:54 herbijudlestoids: i personally dont disagree, but interesting to hear someone from BoE say that technology could kill banking

03:22:28 herbijudlestoids: i guess its probly more efficient for the economy for people to fund bad ideas directly than have to buy junk bonds in the bad ideas

03:22:28 lewicki: not if they all commit suicide first...

03:22:36 mircea_popescu: yeah, interesting to me too. in the following sense : a londoner goes to the country, and upon hearing a goose meow he expresses his astonishment : listen to the cock neigh!

03:22:49 Duffer1: i wish people would stop throwing money at kickstarters

03:23:00 Duffer1: until kickstarters start offering equity

03:23:08 mircea_popescu: anyway. bad ideas being funded is a serious problem for any society.

03:23:09 herbijudlestoids: they cant offer equity

03:23:27 herbijudlestoids: if they offer equity then they fall under the various financial regulations

03:23:52 Vexual: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x19d2au_jonwayne-the-come-up-ft-scoop-deville_lifestyle

03:23:54 herbijudlestoids: basically they need to list on MPOE :P

03:23:59 Duffer1: hehe

03:24:03 Duffer1: i'd love to see that

03:24:27 herbijudlestoids: somehow i doubt most kickstarters would be considered viable by mircea_popescu for listing though :P

03:24:36 Duffer1: exactly

03:25:48 herbijudlestoids: i wish cunts would stop hyping bitcloud :(

03:26:13 Vexual: whats bitcloud?

03:26:43 herbijudlestoids: approx the same idea as urbit or tornet, rehyped and the tech media are cum guzzling it hard

03:26:49 Vexual: ah

03:27:04 herbijudlestoids: except the difference is both urbit and tornet actually have some code committed somewhere

03:27:08 herbijudlestoids: bitcloud has nothing.

03:27:19 mircea_popescu: but bitcloud has bit and cloud

03:27:23 mircea_popescu: you understand nothing

03:50:42 herbijudlestoids: yep, well you can bet the big vendors on those sites are now doing their "security due diligence" before they list products on a given market

04:01:55 herbijudlestoids: ah right right

04:01:55 herbijudlestoids: i see

04:02:40 herbijudlestoids: my main concern is if you setup a legit, correctly secured darknet site, its just going to make you an even bigger target for the NSA really

04:03:19 herbijudlestoids: youll be going up against a very scary adversary who will hand your details over to the FBI or local equivalent as soon as they de-anon your server

04:03:41 herbijudlestoids: not sure the risk/reward is skewed in your favor

04:03:43 Vexual: or visa versa

04:03:51 mircea_popescu: why would you be in the us ?

04:03:56 Apocalyptic: ^

04:04:19 herbijudlestoids: why would your location matter to the NSA?

04:04:23 Vexual: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLixRMmzsy4

04:04:37 herbijudlestoids: in fact being in the US is pretty much the only legal defense against NSA spying lol

04:04:44 mircea_popescu: herp.

04:04:48 Vexual: :)

04:04:57 mircea_popescu: 1. nsa is nowhere near as competent as they'd like you believe

04:05:07 mircea_popescu: 2. most jurisdictions couldn't give less of a shit about the us and its problems.

04:05:26 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 1 @ 0.24310363 BTC

04:05:49 mircea_popescu: the idea is to implement technically sound solutions. this means god himself can not de-anon your server.

04:05:58 mircea_popescu: if you can't do that, you've got little business doing it in the first place.

04:06:15 mircea_popescu: it'd be like bitcoin relying not on chain but on people being nice to each other.

04:06:17 Apocalyptic: i really don't see HK or Russia extradite a drug marketplace owner

04:06:21 Vexual: make it cant break it only existed very recently

04:08:07 herbijudlestoids: the way i see it workin gis something like this: FBI discovers new online drug marketplace, probably tipped off from dutch intelligence or similar agency who actually has the knowhow. they poke it, cant de-anon it, and so they call up the NSA to take a poke. initial pokes are unsuccessful so they go all out against it.

04:08:35 herbijudlestoids: somehow i feel like the NSA is probably quite competent enough considering the resources at their disposal ;)

04:08:48 mircea_popescu: except they have a list of things to do

04:08:53 mircea_popescu: and a list of people that can do it.

04:08:59 Vexual: yeah snowden tok it with him

04:09:02 mircea_popescu: and the worst morale in the history of secret servicing.

04:09:08 mircea_popescu: now... the 2nd list is always shorter.

04:09:18 mircea_popescu: and so... no. they don't have the resources to anytihng.

04:09:38 mircea_popescu: besides, the nsa is dead. the us is scrambling to create a new, actually secret replacement, while pretending nsa is still a thing.

04:09:46 mircea_popescu: that puts further pressure on the manpower available.

04:10:00 herbijudlestoids: s/NSA/5eyes spy conglomerate

04:10:21 herbijudlestoids: when i say NSA i dont mean NSA so much as any sigint that has permissions for global ops

04:10:25 mircea_popescu: you work in hosting, right ? how many competent sysadmins are there, that you can actually motivate to do the job ?

04:10:31 mircea_popescu: and how many jobs need doing ?

04:10:58 Vexual: none

04:11:06 herbijudlestoids: true that unemployment for good ops is very low to nonexistent in our particular sector atm

04:11:27 herbijudlestoids: mostly i write the puppet modules and we hire meatsacks to watch errors

04:12:39 mircea_popescu: so then what do you think, the problem eases as you go up ?

04:12:43 mircea_popescu: it doesn't ease. it aggravates.

04:14:17 mircea_popescu: smart people are few and far between. things they can do are the grass o nthe fields. monstrous socialist regimes have this problem compounded by the fact that they're only popular with idiots.

04:23:03 herbijudlestoids: in early 2009 when FASB changed the rules from mark to market, to mark to unicorn, it was obvious what was going on if it wasnt already. the banks are by "Generally Accepted Accounting Principles", completely insolvent.

04:23:23 herbijudlestoids: so i dunno why this guy is bothering to talk about leverage and FDIC insurance lol

04:23:37 herbijudlestoids: due diligence shows the banks as failed capitalist enterprises

04:23:48 herbijudlestoids: dun need to go further than that.

04:24:09 Duffer1: fdic insurance is probably about the only thing the average american derp understands about banking

04:24:27 Duffer1: he's jsut using it as an example to highlight a point, smart guy knows his audience

04:24:52 mircea_popescu: im with d.

04:25:54 mircea_popescu: this is just damage control anyway. most of the deposits belong to companies, which a) are legally required to keep their funds in a bank and b) are not insured anyway.

05:40:37 mircea_popescu: in the current situation, the only reason i conceivably could not lbo a bank with 100trn in "assets"

05:40:49 mircea_popescu: is that the people supposed to finance lbos are either poor or stupid.

05:43:39 decimation: I agree at some point it will happen. In fact, at some point banks will be begging for the bitcoin rich to tell them what to do

05:43:43 mircea_popescu: they'd rather not eat all that much treebark if at all possible.

05:45:14 mircea_popescu: yes. you'd need gpg for internet banking.

05:45:21 decimation: I would pay if I could get 100% backed deposits in whatever currency I'm banking

05:45:35 mircea_popescu: decimation well is it a bank or is it money storage ?

05:45:51 decimation: money storage for me

05:46:01 mircea_popescu: you could have that, i dun see why not.

05:46:08 decimation: with a convienent loan-matchmaking system

05:46:27 mircea_popescu: course at least for psychological reasons it's prolly better to have the storage and the banking business separated.

05:47:19 herbijudlestoids: how about the bank that lets you choose what rate you are willing to loan your money out at

05:47:20 decimation: the hilarious thing is that the fiat gov't would think they have leverage over you

05:47:41 mircea_popescu: decimation folks love to think this, story of my life.

05:47:43 herbijudlestoids: if you choose, say, 0% it cant loan the money out, at 0.5% only low risk investments, etc

05:48:02 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids maybe. the problem here is this : the more choice you give people, the more fuckwited they are and the more scams you enable.

05:48:22 mircea_popescu: so in practice you want to either give all choice or no choice.

05:55:46 mircea_popescu: decimation not for any price youll afford to pay.

05:56:01 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids i just mean that if you want to dd on your own you can't possibly need a bank for any purpose.

05:56:34 Vexual: etrade is a stock broker here u know mp?

05:56:43 decimation: Well, you certainly wouldn't find anyone qualified working for banks today. He/she would have to be grown from scratch somehow.

05:56:47 mircea_popescu: decimation so then you try to "make it work" which means you push both ends and then a decade down the road your shitty officers bring about a crisis of unheard magnitude

05:57:09 mircea_popescu: what, you think financial top management particularly WANTED a crisis ?

05:57:31 mircea_popescu: Vexual yes.

05:57:39 Vexual: thought so

05:57:44 KRS1: herbijudlestoids>: he's finding the contracts in the blockchain?

05:57:54 KRS1: looks like theres also a rating to them

05:58:00 mircea_popescu: that's my point. if he wants a self-service thing he doesn't need the bank to anything.

05:58:47 decimation: I'm not sure the crisis would be of the same magnitude as what fiat banks have gotten into

05:58:52 herbijudlestoids: well what would i need the bank for, if i can for example loan 10 day money in a liquid market to some business directly, and then when i need some money sell the appropriate amout of 10 day loans back into the mkt?

05:58:56 KRS1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JhsUFuqbCM

05:58:57 decimation: but you certainly could lose alot of money on idiocy

06:00:07 decimation: what if you wanted to divide a loan amoung a few others to reduce the risk?

06:00:27 mircea_popescu: decimation you want sane business models at all times. this one you're contemplating proposes to make 10 dollar steaks out of nine meat. that leftover dollar isn't enough to hire anything but mcdonalds staff. which won't make what you want.

06:00:47 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids yes. if you want to do all the work, you don't need someone to do the work for a group of "you".

06:01:17 mircea_popescu: if you want to cut wood and feed stoves, "town heating services" aren't useful to you.

06:01:17 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: marginal savers can do the legwork and rest of the market can take the interest rate as the signal

06:01:25 mircea_popescu: this is the path to disaster.

06:02:18 mircea_popescu: it's basically the equivalent of driving a car by touch.

06:02:19 herbijudlestoids: decimation: im assuming the loan granularity is extremely fine so you can loan your bitcoins equally amongst them or however you like...

06:02:44 mircea_popescu: fun fact : loan granularity only becomes fine in systems which well handle coarse.

06:02:55 mircea_popescu: if you need fineness as an input your system is thereby aborted.

06:03:05 decimation: That sounds like alot of work for investors and businesses alike

06:03:12 decimation: But I guess the work has to exist somewhere

06:03:32 mircea_popescu: this is kind of the general point here : you ignore workload at your peril. sooner or later it will punish you.

06:03:43 mircea_popescu: the later the worse.

06:03:49 herbijudlestoids: the businesses have to do nothing except list the bond and their verifiably true financials

06:04:05 mircea_popescu: sadly there is no such thing as a "verifiable true financial"

06:04:20 decimation: I guess I'm pushing it into the black boxed labeld "competent bank", and you are saying such a bank would have to charge enormous fees to employ the right people

06:04:30 herbijudlestoids: ye

06:04:42 herbijudlestoids: thereby compressing any profit margin

06:04:43 mircea_popescu: decimation something like that. you're basically saying "it should be done", like a govt.

06:04:49 mircea_popescu: well... that's fine but it doesn't actually work.

06:05:29 mircea_popescu: you know how they pass laws going "nothing in the foregoing should be construed as doing X" ?

06:10:11 decimation: Do you have an alternative in mind? The only thing that occurs to me is rugged investors and businesses creating gpg contracts on their own terms.

06:11:00 mircea_popescu: i don't have a fully polished, drop-in alternative in any sense.

06:11:16 mircea_popescu: what's worse, i doubt there can actually be an alternative to toughening the agents the fuck up.

06:11:41 mircea_popescu: i've been measuring it across the board, you've perhaps seen the tail ends of ti

06:14:41 decimation: it's the quis custodiet ipsos custodes problem

06:15:20 mircea_popescu: in general, the problem is vast. the day your average us citizen has decided that politics is a problem that other people should solve for him, so he can focus on w/e his job is

06:15:29 mircea_popescu: that day politics got fucked irretrievably.

06:15:42 mircea_popescu: yet people don't generally want to nor generally can be renaissance complete personalities.

06:15:43 decimation: which is the current situation more or less

06:15:52 mircea_popescu: well, the same is true of everything.

06:16:02 mircea_popescu: the day you quit cleanning your house it will cease to be clean.

06:16:18 mircea_popescu: the day you decide your financial security is "to be" ensured by nebulous third parties...

06:16:21 mircea_popescu: guesswhat.

06:16:30 mircea_popescu: they may be experts, but they aren't you.

06:16:41 decimation: even if they start out competent and strong, the inevitible incentives to cheat...

06:16:55 mircea_popescu: if you never talk to your girlfriend

06:16:56 mircea_popescu: ever

06:16:59 mircea_popescu: she will eventually quit you.

06:17:08 herbijudlestoids: unless youre mute

06:17:16 mircea_popescu: see ? this seems to be a rather universal rule.

06:17:21 mircea_popescu: herbijudlestoids s/talk/communicate/

06:17:24 herbijudlestoids: :P

06:17:49 herbijudlestoids: lessons in personal responsibility from mircea_popescu

06:18:10 mircea_popescu: well more like... you know... what alternative shall i have, woe unto me. i dun see one, other than lieing it you

06:18:15 mircea_popescu: (dun worry baby it'll all be alright)

06:18:29 decimation: "intellectuals" call it the "noble lie"

06:18:35 Vexual: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QCZ_bv9aLc

06:18:47 mircea_popescu: yes, but apparently you won't have classes, and be happy inferiors of some selected caste of masters.

06:18:53 mircea_popescu: this makes such lie impopssible.

06:18:59 Duffer1: herbijudlestoids it's a lot better than lessons from Labcoin :P

06:19:23 mircea_popescu: the original observation, however, to wit that politics has very quickly diminishing marginal returns, and in general you don't need more than 100 men involved in it in any case, is sound.

06:19:35 mircea_popescu: (fun fact : 50% of all wealth today is owned by 97 people, i hear)

06:19:49 herbijudlestoids: noway

06:19:58 herbijudlestoids: sauce?

06:20:02 mircea_popescu: research it, im curious if it can be confirmed

06:20:11 herbijudlestoids: i think its a lot lower, more like 8% :P

06:21:20 mircea_popescu: 1% own 40%, according to the un.

06:21:28 mircea_popescu: i guess it depends on how conspiracy-minded the approach is.

06:21:45 Vexual: yeah thats the humanitarian brach of the nsa

06:22:07 Vexual: not really

06:22:09 herbijudlestoids: yes i would agree 1% own 40%...so what is 1%? seventy million people!

06:22:35 herbijudlestoids: another number i found for 2013 is that 29 million own 39% of global assets

06:22:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13750 @ 0.00093454 = 12.8499 BTC [+] {2}

06:22:44 mircea_popescu: yeah, of which 69`999`923 people do banking with a select few :)

06:22:51 herbijudlestoids: lol

06:22:55 mircea_popescu: so in the end...

06:23:39 herbijudlestoids: nowaybro, if global assets includes say, a cashflow positive farm or car factory or whatever then that piece of ass(et) doesnt matter who you bank with

06:23:42 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HMF] 4 @ 0.02969 = 0.1188 BTC [-]

06:23:59 mircea_popescu: methinks i was forcing a point.

06:24:08 herbijudlestoids: i have heard a number that the richest 100% own a lot, but the number i heard was like 8%

06:24:16 herbijudlestoids: err s/100%/100 people/

06:24:18 Vexual: it mght affect where you are able to sell your product effectively herbi

06:24:48 decimation: well, it certainly is the case that money will stay in the hands of those who have the ability to hold it

06:24:56 decimation: and that those people are rare

06:25:01 mircea_popescu: ownership is a muddled thing anyway. so you own your house. you can't set it on fire. you can't dig a hole in the livingroom. etc.

06:25:31 decimation: everyone else needs an arrangement with the local duke or landgrave

06:25:57 mircea_popescu: decimation you know what a house mother is ?

06:26:15 decimation: Like someone who stays home to raise the children?

06:26:22 mircea_popescu: no.

06:26:35 mircea_popescu: heterosexual couples ended up doing cellular families, somehow, for some reason.

06:26:42 mircea_popescu: at least in the english world.

06:26:54 mircea_popescu: gay people however, tend[ed] to live in groups

06:27:13 mircea_popescu: also other opressed groups (entertainers, especially sex workers, for instace ; drug users definitely)

06:27:33 Vexual: hookers

06:27:35 mircea_popescu: much like average people going out to drink have a designated driver, these cvasi-familial arrangements have a house mother

06:27:47 mircea_popescu: who is the sort of... well.. landgrave, technically.

06:27:58 mircea_popescu: resolves "whose hairbrush it really is" disputes

06:28:02 Vexual: i tak eit you dont mp

06:28:08 herbijudlestoids: its my fucken hairbrush

06:28:11 mircea_popescu: in most large towns cops reflexively seek him out in any conflict

06:28:13 Vexual: lol

06:28:32 mircea_popescu: this meanwhile has expanded to college aged kids, who are in fact an opressed group by now.

06:28:50 decimation: yeah in frat houses in us universities there is often such a person

06:28:50 mircea_popescu: not deliberately, just, they're too fucking dumb and uninformed to survive in the world as it is.

06:28:56 mircea_popescu: and so slowly the model spreads

06:29:02 mircea_popescu: there's your landgrave.

06:29:46 Vexual: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F57P9C4SAW4

06:30:27 mircea_popescu: so in the end, the future looks like, two to six slaves living i nthe care of one master, who gets in the wot and tries to make sense of whether mp or x or y is more sensible to keep his house's money.

06:30:53 mircea_popescu: sorta mini-tribal.

06:30:57 Vexual: youtube thinks im a french tween

06:30:58 decimation: yeah that sounds about right

06:31:27 mircea_popescu: in the end, this all yields a richer conenctivity in society,

06:31:43 mircea_popescu: and it's a well known fact that the more connected model always emerges victorious.

06:31:46 Vexual: yeah then it breaks people starve and start over

06:32:03 mircea_popescu: which is fundamentally why england conquered scotland rather than the other way around

06:32:10 mircea_popescu: even though it was a scottish king who did the union

06:32:12 decimation: yeah here's a blog that shows a map of individualism vs. collectivism https://hbdchick.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/national-individualism-collectivism-scores/

06:32:21 Vexual: say that in an aberdeen pub

06:32:23 mircea_popescu: i woudln't call this collectivism tho.

06:32:31 mircea_popescu: possibly because the term is in my mind strictly related to stalin.

06:32:33 decimation: the individualist are better at coordinating things on a large scale

06:34:55 decimation: Interestingly Hungary is a major outlier in Eastern Europe

06:35:20 mircea_popescu: is this hbd supposed to be "sanity ready to fight spurious accusations of racism" ?

06:35:47 Vexual: hbd?

06:37:00 Vexual: how can hungary inbreed, the border keeps moving

06:37:01 mircea_popescu: no seriously ? can i lol yet ?

06:37:14 mircea_popescu: the us is under 50.

06:38:04 mircea_popescu: "remember that it?s the individualists who seem to work together best towards the collective ? the BIG collective ? society as a whole ? a nation, for instance. meanwhile, the ?collectivists? (as hofstede calls them) ? or the clannish groups (as i call them) ? don?t manage to handle, or even to create, commonweals hardly at all."

06:38:14 mircea_popescu: this is really very naive 1930s whig anthropology.

06:38:31 mircea_popescu: for one thing, the clannish groups don't actually need the large constructs like the alienated individuals do.

06:39:04 mircea_popescu: but anyway.

06:39:09 Vexual: yeah

06:39:39 herbijudlestoids: i need a cheeseburger

06:41:01 Vexual: two extra cheezeburgers

06:42:58 Vexual: your girl is supposed to get a salad and eat some of your chips

06:42:59 mircea_popescu: no, as in take the gf. you eat the big hoovespaste thing, she eats the small one

06:43:19 herbijudlestoids: glegh

06:43:29 mircea_popescu: what do these things cost anymore ?

06:43:38 Vexual: bacon on mine

06:43:48 Vexual: if you dont mind

06:44:09 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: id guess about that, with the current FX rate at 0.87

06:55:16 Vexual: whats the marinade, i cant translate, too salivating

06:55:56 mircea_popescu: Tot in practica eu n-o marinez in otet, cum e ideea nemteasca, ci-n vin, ceva rosu (in imagine dinsus aveti un cupaj de Merlot / Pinot Noir de la Recas. Daca nu sunteti alcolisti ca si mine puteti folosi lapte batut, am mincat o data facuta asa de austriece miini, fu delicioasa. (Si, si).

06:56:15 Vexual: yeah

06:56:26 mircea_popescu: also in practice, i don't use vinegar, like the germans, i use wine, something red (depicted above, merlot/pinot noir from recas)

10:40:14 herbijudlestoids: anyone around?

10:40:29 Duffer1: how's it goin

10:41:01 herbijudlestoids: alright, just trying to plug sensitivity analysis into the just-dice numbers

10:41:25 herbijudlestoids: not sure there is a positive kelly criterion value so the best bet is to "invest" with the house

10:42:25 herbijudlestoids: yeah...all the values seem to come out negative, not including the house edge

10:42:57 Duffer1: do you have your own site or blog where you're showing this info?

10:44:02 herbijudlestoids: nope

10:44:54 Duffer1: are you just analyzing for the hell of it or do you intend to apply your findings to trade?

10:45:29 herbijudlestoids: this is the equation f=(p*(b+1)-1)/b where b=0.65 and p=0.6

10:45:53 herbijudlestoids: and then i did sensitivity analysis for b and p looking for positive f values

10:46:07 Duffer1: right, but why hehe

10:46:17 herbijudlestoids: hmm well im analysing because some people on here mentioned it, id only apply if i could find an optimal betting equation

10:46:29 herbijudlestoids: i find it nice you can invest with the house tho

10:46:35 Duffer1: oh i see

10:47:48 Duffer1: i wish dooglus hung out in b-a

10:48:05 Duffer1: i bet that'd be very interesting

10:52:06 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 200 @ 0.00280003 = 0.56 BTC [-] {4}

10:59:21 Namworld: Possibly

11:10:29 Namworld: If there's no house edge, then it's always going to be zero for f. Unless there's rounding issues in the winnings vs odds since you can adjust those.

11:11:28 Namworld: If the odds are negative (house edge), f will be negative.

11:11:36 Namworld: So you know... go with the house

13:59:49 mircea_popescu: so since pretty much anyone here has a better knowledge of webstuff than i do, here's a question :

14:00:11 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22800 @ 0.00093333 = 21.2799 BTC [+] {2}

14:00:18 mircea_popescu: inasmuch as you're going to do a site with accounts, which people can log in over http (stupid as this may be)

14:00:55 mircea_popescu: wouldn't the best practice be, that upon user registration you generate a user salt and a nonce, send these as a hashed cookie,

14:01:26 mircea_popescu: and upon each subsequent login you a) check if the user has the old cookie ; b) hash the salt, store it, increment the nonce, store it ; c) send a new cookie

14:02:18 mircea_popescu: if your salt+nonce -> cookie process is deterministic you can even verify it's the same actual user to any arbitrary degree of fineness (such as, same ip)

14:03:14 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [MS] 25 @ 0.005 = 0.125 BTC

14:03:16 mircea_popescu: the question being, is anyone currently doing this ?

14:04:12 mircea_popescu: (obviously in this case by "login" i mean, any http request to your server at all)

14:08:19 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 1 @ 0.175 BTC [+]

14:09:09 nubbins`: hi

14:11:17 mircea_popescu: buna sa-ti fie inima, straine.

14:15:24 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell herbijudlestoids those same people said to you http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=01-02-2014#472180

14:15:25 gribble: The operation succeeded.

14:15:35 nubbins`: toată lumea de aici este strainu

14:15:52 mircea_popescu: haha

14:15:59 nubbins`: or whatever :D

14:16:03 mircea_popescu: "este straină"

14:16:06 mircea_popescu: but otherwise wd.

14:16:30 mircea_popescu: anywya : hi in romanian is, to this day, "buna ziua", ie good day.

14:16:40 mircea_popescu: the ancientest response to this is "may your heart be good, stranger"

14:16:49 mircea_popescu: used liberally cca... 1700

14:17:27 nubbins`: that's bordering on an arabic level of eloquence

14:17:48 mircea_popescu: romania had been bordering on an arabic invasion of the western world all through the middle ages.

14:17:56 nubbins`: well there ya go!

14:18:06 nubbins`: peace be upon you as well, etc

14:18:14 mircea_popescu: for instance the town i live in, has been sieged by the turks and by the germans about 18 times, switching sides like 7

14:18:25 mircea_popescu: because it controls the only easy access into the west from constantinople.

14:18:30 nubbins`: fun fact, i only learned two arabic phrases when visiting morocco

14:18:45 mircea_popescu: bismallah being one ?

14:19:15 nubbins`: actually only learned that one afterward

14:19:30 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 1 @ 0.175 BTC [+]

14:19:54 nubbins`: anyway, people were much less impressed with my wa'alaykum salaam when it became clear that i didn't need to buy a rug

14:20:06 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell herbijudlestoids srsly, blogspot ? why such evil ;/

14:20:06 gribble: The operation succeeded.

14:20:14 mircea_popescu: hahaha

14:21:02 nubbins`: "cutting a rug" is a euphemism here, but not for what you'd think

14:21:20 mircea_popescu: dancing ?

14:21:31 nubbins`: you're more perceptive than most

14:21:37 nubbins`: also known as "having a scuff"

14:21:47 mircea_popescu: you know, all that grammar truffles doesn't know.

14:21:49 mircea_popescu: i know it >D

14:22:27 KRS-: "cleaning a rug" is a euphamism here, commonly paired with "laying pipe".

14:22:30 KRS-: .bait

14:22:35 nubbins`: ﷽‎

14:22:41 nubbins`: ^ that's a single glyph!

14:23:02 KRS-: How did you type nothing

14:23:16 nubbins`: how do you not have any arabic fonts installed?

14:23:23 mircea_popescu: amusingly, it reads like a square with f0f0 written in it, which'd be a short form of a romanian euphemism for... cunt, of course

14:23:23 KRS-: ah thats why

14:23:25 mircea_popescu: fofoloanca.

14:23:34 KRS-: haha

14:23:47 nubbins`: right in the fofolanca

14:23:48 mircea_popescu: maybe it's really fdfd and im just being freudian

14:23:48 pankkake: mircea_popescu: most websites, and almost all frameworks I've seen, only use a cookie that isn't refreshed, and is either left to expire stupidly, or never expiring

14:24:09 mircea_popescu: pankkake so then this'd be beyond my comprehension. why in the fuck ?

14:24:12 nubbins`: pankkake: fuckit, drive space is cheap ;p

14:24:12 pankkake: if you add a signed timestamp to the cookie, maybe you can limit logins from old stolen cookies

14:24:24 mircea_popescu: obviously you have to chain cookies if you're using that retarded method of keeping track of user state.

14:24:33 nubbins`: my favourite euphemism for pussy these days is "ham wallet"

14:24:45 mircea_popescu: what are you, an aluminum siding salesman ?!

14:25:11 nubbins`: great for industrial buildings as well as the home!

14:25:26 mircea_popescu: (guy walks into a girlscout cookie clambake. as the festivities progress he keeps getting more and more excited

14:25:27 KRS-: pankkake: good luck with that cookie strategy if you are using multiple web servers

14:25:39 mircea_popescu: eventually he asks a supervisor : so when do you skewer their meatflaps already ?)

14:25:50 mircea_popescu: KRS- what'd be the problem ?

14:26:04 pankkake: KRS-: it's a signed cookie, not session cookie; and managing sessions over multiple servers is possible too

14:26:27 pankkake: but usually the process is that you have an auth cookie (lifetime = high), and a session cookie (lifetime = short)

14:26:33 nubbins`: managing sessions over several servers is commonplace

14:26:38 pankkake: and we're only talking about the auth cookie

14:26:45 mircea_popescu: pankkake so is the session cookie changed on each pageload ?

14:26:53 KRS-: Load balanced web servers would associate that cookie to one particular web server, if the load balancer stategy isn't carefully chosen (if possible) when the load balancer shifts traffic the cookie could become invalid beecause another web server doesn't know about the cookie.

14:27:06 nubbins`: ^

14:27:11 mircea_popescu: KRS- inasmuch as they all run your code they all know about the cookie.

14:27:12 nubbins`: have seen this

14:27:14 pankkake: no, it doesn't change, that's the point

14:27:20 mircea_popescu: pankkake well that's fucktarded.

14:27:41 pankkake: unless you store session data in it, but usually it's just a secret ID

14:28:06 nubbins`: had to troubleshoot a web app once where there was a round-robin load balancing setup. each new page request launched a new session, up to a max of 3 (the number of servers)

14:28:19 KRS-: I've dealt with this problem before. You have to carefully pick a load balanced strategy or pick another session persistence.

14:28:20 mircea_popescu: why so much derp ;/

14:28:35 pankkake: the session cookie isn't kept. if you close the browser, it's removed, etc.

14:29:21 pankkake: it's a poor's man stateful over stateless crap

14:29:22 nubbins`: what are you guys talking about, anyway

14:29:31 mircea_popescu: very poor man.

14:29:48 KRS-: This is my kind of it work, not much of a developer..love this stuffl.

14:29:49 mircea_popescu: today we learn nubbins` doth not read the logs

14:30:01 nubbins`: i read like halfway through today

14:30:07 nubbins`: lotta noise ;(

14:30:15 KRS-: pankkake gets it =D

14:30:23 KRS-: sysadmin pankkake?

14:30:23 pankkake: but the auth cookie thing is interesting. it wouldn't be so hard to write a more secure implementation that most of what's out there

14:30:32 KRS-: true

14:30:39 nubbins`: oh jeez, literally right before i joined

14:30:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 17200 @ 0.00093336 = 16.0538 BTC [+] {2}

14:30:41 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 2 @ 0.16366666 = 0.3273 BTC [-]

14:30:42 pankkake: sysadmin for fun and dev for work, basically

14:31:02 KRS-: ya its hard to find work as sysadmin where I live, but the work lasts a very long time.

14:31:07 KRS-: secure

14:32:13 nubbins`: so let's suppose the user loses their old cookie, what then?

14:32:19 KRS-: sign back in

14:32:39 KRS-: unless like pankkake said, its just a signed cookie not session

14:32:45 nubbins`: but http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-02-2014#474411

14:33:06 nubbins`: you're no longer verifying it's anybody if the old cookie is gone, no?

14:33:47 pankkake: ooh actually I wrote something like it earlier, without thinking much about it. the auth cookie has an expiration, but at every session cookie recreation, the auth cookie is refreshed

14:34:10 nubbins`: sure, but suppose the user clears his cookies.

14:34:10 pankkake: so it allows auth cookies that still expire fast, while not forcing you to relogin if you visit the site often

14:34:29 pankkake: well any cookie removal logs you out obviously

14:34:40 KRS-: mitm comes to mind

14:34:45 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6651 @ 0.00093273 = 6.2036 BTC [-]

14:35:08 nubbins`: so you can verify it's the same user logging in each time, unless they perform a relatively common, semmingly benign action, like clearing their cookies

14:35:39 nubbins`: why even bother with all the hocus pocus?

14:36:06 KRS-: maybe to incorporate the salt+nonce that mircea_popescu was talking about?

14:36:17 KRS-: not sure

14:36:22 pankkake: it's a way to ensure you only have fresh cookies - stealing old cookies cannot work

14:36:42 pankkake: helps prevent replay attacks… kinda

14:36:47 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15766 @ 0.0009273 = 14.6198 BTC [-]

14:36:47 nubbins`: hm

14:36:58 pankkake: it's not going to be very good

14:37:33 nubbins`: seems like rubber bands and paperclips

14:37:42 pankkake: when I did implement that thing, it was more because I wanted cookies to expire in a smarter way

14:37:53 nubbins`: if you're that worried, just let the auth cookies expire after a half hour.

14:38:41 nubbins`: there's no "keep me logged in" checkbox on my bank's website

14:38:59 nubbins`: if you're worried about cookies being stolen, there should be no such checkbox on your site either

14:39:16 pankkake: my bank is using RC4 "encryption"

14:39:35 pankkake: 128 bit too

14:39:46 pankkake: and if you try to force it to do something else, it rejects you

14:40:03 pankkake: lol, banks

14:42:02 nubbins`: when i lived in korea, my bank required that i ran an activex control, had a cookie stored on a usb thumb drive, and asked for two separate five-digit codes from a list of about 50 that were provided as a wallet-sized card

14:42:09 nubbins`: before i could even enter my card number :o

14:42:39 nubbins`: such intentions, many fail, etc

14:42:47 asciilifeform: ah, korea, land of eternal IE6.

14:42:50 nubbins`: ^

14:42:52 KRS-: why RC4

14:43:09 KRS-: securing transport layer is hard anyway

14:43:40 pankkake: mircea_popescu: http://docs.pylonsproject.org/projects/pyramid/en/latest/api/authentication.html see reissue_time, it looks like those guys thought of it too :)

14:44:19 pankkake: KRS-: probably because of the BEAST attack, but they must have botched the configuration

14:44:47 KRS-: hopefully they are using it together with another mechanism, which is probably the case and would be just fine.

14:44:56 pankkake: no, they are very incompetent

14:45:03 KRS-: seems to be the case everywhere..

14:45:19 pankkake: 1) it's a bank 2) it's a FRENCH bank 3) their website reeks incompetence

14:46:06 KRS-: pankkake I've done a lot of consulting...from the private sector to government..none of them got it right. I imagine the big guys do like BOA, Google, etc.

14:46:58 pankkake: sadly the gpg over http projects seem to go nowhere

14:47:22 KRS-: One exception was the Florida Turnpike Enterprise (a private business implementation of a government roadway function to accept tolls and what not)..they had a firm grasp on I.T. security from their payment processor to their wireless roadway nodes..I was very impressed.

14:47:40 KRS-: Ya wonder why that is..it seems pretty solid to me.

14:48:52 nubbins`: years ago i did maintenance on a lottery corporation website

14:48:58 nubbins`: THEY had security figured out

14:49:15 pankkake: CACert allows you to authenticate with a browser certificate, though. I don't know any other website allowing it

14:51:04 mircea_popescu: pankkake too late, ima post it.

14:51:24 nubbins`: i should take a dump before the gym

14:51:27 pankkake: post what?

14:54:14 asciilifeform: http://cryptome.org/2014/02/nsa-gchq-quisquater.pdf

14:59:17 mircea_popescu: "please look in your manual to continue moving larry around the lounge"

15:00:08 KRS-: pankkake: probably because the CA cert won't complete the certificate chain for the general public. The cert would have to be signed by a custom CA I think.

15:00:35 nubbins`: lel yeah

15:00:49 nubbins`: "to continue sir graham's quest, type the 8th word on page 5"

15:23:15 jurov: water4ll, there were ~40 new mpex accounts last month alone

15:23:36 jurov: plus others via coinbr

15:23:38 water4ll: I'm just a little surprised at consistent trading volume

15:23:52 mircea_popescu: why is consistent trading volume surprising ?

15:24:04 water4ll: well it's a higher barrier to entry than say havelock

15:24:10 water4ll: even with broker

15:24:31 jurov: i'd say the barrier motivates people to take care of their assets

15:24:51 water4ll: and high value traded too, none of that 0.05btc nonsense

15:24:54 water4ll: always 10,20 etc

15:25:01 mircea_popescu: water4ll yes, the fact that mpex is a respectable exchange makes it have consistent volume

15:25:05 mircea_popescu: unlike all the scamexchanges to date.

15:25:11 mircea_popescu: what in there is surprising ?

15:25:27 water4ll: seems a lot of inflated volume

15:26:01 mircea_popescu: it happens, but apparently not too often.

15:26:19 mircea_popescu: water4ll listen, there's a difference between "i don't want X to be true and therefore i'll say things" and "X is surprising".

15:26:20 jurov: water4ll, i'm doing S.MPOE/BBET-PT passthrough payout and in 3 months so far only half of people went through it

15:26:58 water4ll: jurov": what do you mean? via coinbr?

15:26:58 jurov: they paid (or have to pay monthly)

15:27:18 jurov: yes, it's the passthrought from BTCT

15:27:29 water4ll: BTCT I thought closed down some time ago

15:27:34 water4ll: oh nvm

15:27:36 water4ll: got t

15:27:38 mircea_popescu: wow you still struggling with that ?!

15:27:43 water4ll: lol

15:27:51 water4ll: hard to keep track these days

15:27:52 mircea_popescu: poor jurov lol

15:27:53 jurov: yes, i just left it there

15:27:58 water4ll: glbse bitfunder

15:28:00 jurov: no additional expense

15:29:24 jurov: hey everyone who was on btct, try checking here: https://coinbr.com/btct/nampt_1

15:29:40 jurov: maybe you'll get a surprise ;)

15:30:17 jurov: and if you want to try coinbr, you have free 1 month till next monthly fee and 1 free withdrawal

15:30:29 mircea_popescu: now that's an idea

15:30:34 mircea_popescu: prolly best advertised on forum tho

15:30:55 jurov: oh, it was announced there when I put it online\

15:31:02 jurov: and then again and again

15:31:14 jurov: they just cnat raed

15:31:50 mircea_popescu: why would theyu right ?

15:32:03 mircea_popescu: like that jimmothy fellow. "ingore everything that's said, quote wikipedia"

15:32:25 mircea_popescu: anyway, http://fraudsters.com/2014/your-cookies-are-borkt-seriously/ if anyone would like to critique.

15:33:03 water4ll: mircea_popescu: how many articles do you pump out daily?

15:33:23 mircea_popescu: been averaging 1-2 in 2013.

15:33:50 mircea_popescu: bout where it is, 30-60 a month.

15:33:54 water4ll: Wow

15:34:13 mircea_popescu: lol you think that's wow, talk to benkay. i think he's done thirty this week.

15:34:23 water4ll: I tried to write a blog once, after 5 minutes I found myself opening some new tabs

15:35:22 mircea_popescu: to quote george for you, "They're men with jobs, Jerry! ... They're married, they have secretaries."

15:35:31 water4ll: http://samy.pl/evercookie/

15:36:11 mircea_popescu: that sounds like the clap not a cookie.

15:37:17 water4ll: they are both persistent

15:40:47 ThickerThanThiev: I'm also not savvy on cookies, but my naive question is, why doesn't the browser manage user auth?

15:41:02 pankkake: mircea_popescu: your irc copy paste is broken, the last part is about using RC4, and not related to the rest

15:41:16 mircea_popescu: oh

15:41:18 pankkake: i.e. anything after "Probably because of the BEAST attack"

15:41:39 water4ll: crime more concern than beast

15:41:40 mircea_popescu: so is psylon a french bank ?

15:42:08 pankkake: pylons is a web framework, sort of

15:42:29 pankkake: I don't know why you mangled those two things together

15:42:30 mircea_popescu: that's nice, had too much quite in there anyway. check it ?

15:43:33 water4ll: mircea_popescu: I think it's time

15:44:04 mircea_popescu: "it too :)" alligns with "probably" on the next line in my view. so i just read over krs and thus it formed one line.

15:44:10 water4ll: has anybody got the address of rpietila's new private bitcoin forum

15:44:19 mircea_popescu: lmao

16:58:53 KRS-: haha ya or the formatting isnt quite right on my spreadsheet or word document

16:59:08 ThickAsThieves: probly from being burned by all the expert nephews and windows experts

16:59:20 KRS-: ya i guess i cant blame them..much incompetence out there.

17:00:08 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] [PAID] 0.50889948 BTC to 444 shares, 114617 satoshi per share

17:00:39 KRS-: other SMB's have been great, long time clients, low workload, worked 2-4 days a week on average and made great money..thinking about going that route again, i just hate selling myself..maybe i can get a marketing company to do that.

17:00:53 ThickAsThieves: a ha "There was approximately $1.23 trillion in circulation as of January 29, 2014, of which $1.18 trillion was in Federal Reserve notes."

17:01:00 KRS-: ouch

17:01:00 ThickAsThieves: http://www.federalreserve.gov/faqs/currency_12773.htm

17:01:27 ThickAsThieves: i cant sort how these numbers add up though

17:01:28 KRS-: see the news lately, DOW and other markets are looking flaky

17:01:37 KRS-: most US currnecy overseas

17:03:01 ThickAsThieves: like, how doe sthe first report show $11t, the second say 1.23t, and the debt clock say $17.st

17:03:11 KRS-: smoke and mirrors dude

17:03:28 ThickAsThieves: nah there has to be some sort of path through the math

17:03:34 ThickAsThieves: made up or not

17:03:45 KRS-: ..was going to say if you want to trust those numbers.

17:04:02 ThickAsThieves: it is has to add up somewhere right?

17:04:06 KRS-: the government has been pulling back i hear

17:04:21 ThickAsThieves: maybe the simple answer is to just use the largest one

17:04:25 KRS-: ThickAsThieves: it does. Its carefully scrutinized, but where you go for the numbers are for those in the know.

17:04:30 KRS-: Pretty sure.

17:04:39 KRS-: Like labor statistics..published vs unpublished.

17:05:02 ThickAsThieves: if we owe $17.25t then that is probly the minimum amount of dollars, no?

17:05:06 ThickAsThieves: printed or not

17:05:27 KRS-: you would think

17:05:35 KRS-: Either way its a bad situation.

17:06:04 ThickAsThieves: i'm looking for an easy way to educate my circles on dollar inflation and dilution

17:06:22 KRS-: is that of benefit to you?

17:06:24 ThickAsThieves: i want them to undestand they do not have $X in the bank

17:06:31 KRS-: oh for proper investment?

17:06:44 ThickAsThieves: and that tomorrow, they will have less $ in the bank whether they withdraw or not

17:06:50 KRS-: I'm sure serious investors already know this.

17:06:58 KRS-: I'm sure most investors do.

17:06:59 ThickAsThieves: this is for friends and family

17:07:07 KRS-: ah ..another story.

17:07:36 KRS-: You aint kidding...got similar family like that thinking their 401k's are fine and all.

17:07:41 KRS-: They wont even listen to me.

17:07:42 ThickAsThieves: or at least what mp says total ignore-ance

17:08:04 mircea_popescu: yeah i was gonna say, glwt but it ain't happening/

17:08:12 mircea_popescu: that's why family is best organised as slaves in a harem

17:08:19 mircea_popescu: you tell them what to do and are done with it.

17:08:46 mircea_popescu: with ppl as they are, even picking a fucking place to eat takes tw odays.

17:09:01 mircea_popescu: by the time you explain the situation to them you could have made more money than their aggregate savings by just... working.

17:09:18 mircea_popescu: like, doing something useful. which explaining stuff to idiots rarely is.

17:09:24 KRS-: heh

17:09:25 ThickAsThieves: you are so right about picking place to eat!

17:09:27 KRS-: so true man

17:09:32 ThickAsThieves: when we travel,

17:09:40 KRS-: give people a choice and it is teh fucks up everything

17:09:46 mircea_popescu: dude, you just yell "on your knees" and everyone is on their knees.

17:09:49 ThickAsThieves: I pre-choose every mean place before we even get to the airport

17:09:51 mircea_popescu: makes things so fucking easy.

17:10:02 ThickAsThieves: meal*

17:10:18 KRS-: people actually want to be told imo

17:10:19 chetty: It does not have to add up. THey don't think the masses can do math so they bother with things like that

17:10:43 ThickAsThieves: so you guys are saying there really is no answer?

17:11:00 mircea_popescu: chetty actually, banks came up with clown&baloon patterns for the back of cheques, i wonder how long till your actual bank statment is in pictures

17:11:02 ThickAsThieves: that there are vastly conflicting ways to count the money?

17:11:04 mircea_popescu: numbers being racist and all.

17:11:37 nubbins`: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=02-02-2014#474726

17:11:51 nubbins`: ^ sounds like it doesn't snow where that guy lives

17:11:55 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves there are in fact vastly different ways to ACCOUNT.

17:11:56 mircea_popescu: "Those assets that he had, they were in fact somehow valued. On one approach to valuation, they came out X. On another approach to valuation, they came out Y. There?s little convergence between the series of Xs and Ys."

17:12:28 ThickAsThieves: sure, but how do i sort out what a dollar is worth, ignoring outside inflations

17:12:33 mircea_popescu: you don't.

17:12:35 chetty: Some congress critter said they need to do weather reports in eubonics, thats why so many in NO didn't leave, they didn't understand.

17:12:43 mircea_popescu: how do you sort out what the word "it" means, ignoring outside inflations ?

17:13:15 ThickAsThieves: by striclty looking at money creation changes

17:13:21 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 2000 @ 0.00011907 = 0.2381 BTC [+] {9}

17:13:37 mircea_popescu: the reason pure mercantilist views are derided by ws today is sound tho.

17:13:48 mircea_popescu: you're trying to live in 1700, which doesn't work.

17:14:27 ThickAsThieves: i want to be be able to form a sentence like "If we print the same amount of money in 2014 as 2013, your $1 with be worth .82"

17:14:28 mircea_popescu: the us dollar is a negotiable credit instrument, like any paper. it does not have this "fixed" value you wish toassign it.

17:14:36 mircea_popescu: yes, but you can't form that stance.

17:14:45 mircea_popescu: and if you could, i could write a bot to exploit your currency and make me rich

17:14:50 mircea_popescu: rendering your statement false in the process.

17:15:07 mircea_popescu: (this, incidentally, is largely what soros vs bank of england was all about)

17:15:13 ThickAsThieves: that implies things happen to icrease dollar value no?

17:15:36 mircea_popescu: that implies that the exchange value of a negotiable instrument is only known after the negotiation completes.

17:15:47 nubbins`: ^

17:16:03 mircea_popescu: http://fraudsters.com/2012/the-problem-of-too-much-money/

17:16:10 nubbins`: you don't know what the value of your white tamagotchi is until some sucker buys it

17:16:13 mircea_popescu: "The problem inflationary currency bestows upon capital allocators is insolvable. They are given money of no certain value (pretty much the only sure thing about the paper currency is that it is, literally, burning in your hands, it ticks away like a bomb, it blows in the wind like dust - all this while you?re holding it) and have to do something with it. They always, always, always, absolutely always have more than

17:16:13 mircea_popescu: is in fact needed."

17:16:23 nubbins`: and even then, that only settles the question of what YOUR white tama was worth.

17:16:25 mircea_popescu: that "no certain value" is in there for a reason.

17:16:26 nubbins`: to one guy, even.

17:17:08 ThickAsThieves: ugh

17:17:55 ThickAsThieves: I get it, I do, but this is not easy to communicate to normals

17:18:00 mircea_popescu: myeah.

17:18:10 mircea_popescu: which is why normals can't make exchanges, or ipos, or etc.

17:18:27 mircea_popescu: nor can they understand WHY is it that you won't let them.

17:18:34 mircea_popescu: obviously, it's because scam and racist.

17:19:15 ThickAsThieves: why the fuck is the phenomenon that uneducated think complicated info is untrustworthy

17:19:33 mircea_popescu: if you think about it, that's the stable game-theoretic solution.

17:19:38 ThickAsThieves: like if i rant on all this to my mom, she'll think i'm a conspiracy theorist

17:20:03 mircea_popescu: what should your server do with requests it doesn't comprehend ? a. drop them b. anything else.

17:20:21 ThickAsThieves: well your server is a slave right

17:20:26 ThickAsThieves: it does what you tell it to

17:20:42 mircea_popescu: well it'd better not be enough of a whore to do anything any user tells it.

17:20:51 mircea_popescu: ideally it's your slave, as you have the ssh

17:20:52 nubbins`: are you asking why people don't trust things they don't understand? :(

17:20:54 ThickAsThieves: the risk with slaves!

17:21:23 ThickAsThieves: well i dont necessarily want to conversate about that aspect nubbins

17:21:27 asciilifeform: 'Postel's Law,' that historic mistake.

17:21:31 mircea_popescu: iirc jurov was trying some experiments with giving anon users root on the box or something

17:21:38 nubbins`: not much to converse about :D

17:21:53 nubbins`: or conversate, for that matter ;p

17:22:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform actually postel's is great for the web. it's just that the web is NOT great for "anything"

17:22:57 mircea_popescu: and that's what the fucktarded altchainers have been doing to the internet, try to make everything out of web

17:23:15 mircea_popescu: just like some insane dood at your favourite eatery, where you once had some marzipan and like it.

17:23:30 mircea_popescu: next time you visit it's all like "yo dawg! i hear yu like marzipan so now I made everything out of marzipan!

17:23:39 mircea_popescu: like... the steak. the milk. YOUR CHAIR"

17:23:58 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: afaik, postel's law came out of electronics, where you want to emit clear 'high' or 'low' voltage but do something other than choke & die if you're given a weird glitch (something in between)

17:24:05 mircea_popescu: make everything out of web, make everything out of blockchains, make everything out of etc.

17:24:08 ThickAsThieves: they in their own type of Kink High, let them play!

17:24:27 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform also a web-ish sort of situation.

17:25:24 asciilifeform: exactly. we had 'Muller's gate' in the '50s, with 'ready' signals. but nobody uses.

17:26:02 mircea_popescu: basically, <KRS-> has it : people actually want to be told

17:29:07 nubbins`: ugh, i find myself in the unenviable position of having funds in my paypal account that i wish to convert to btc

17:29:20 nubbins`: this has literally never happened before D:

17:29:47 ThickAsThieves: people want to be told > thus rely on trust > thus capitalism becomes great liar

17:30:07 mircea_popescu: nah, a model where 90% of the population trusts 10% in chunks of ~10 individuals, and then in turn and hten in turn

17:30:13 mircea_popescu: is pretty much the most stable thing in nature.

17:30:33 mircea_popescu: you need about a dozen or so tiers and you're golden.

17:31:15 mircea_popescu: the problem we have now is with the nationalist state of napoleon (and the us which is really just a pale copy) having successfully attacked this natural wot

17:31:26 mircea_popescu: with the result of 99.99999% trusting 0.00001%

17:31:30 mircea_popescu: with just one tier you're fucked.

17:31:45 ThickAsThieves: is it even possible to prevent?

17:31:58 mircea_popescu: it's a self-limiting condition.

17:32:09 mircea_popescu: and teh time's tick tock.

17:33:13 ThickAsThieves: i mean in general, is a wot's compromise inevitable

17:33:25 mircea_popescu: my read of history shows it is, yes.

17:33:30 mircea_popescu: game theory indicates it is, too

17:33:45 mircea_popescu: the nation model only emerges in situations where "the right thing" is plainly obvious

17:33:54 mircea_popescu: these are necessarily limited in time and exceptional.

17:34:27 ThickAsThieves: so the compromise of bitcoin is inevitable

17:34:40 mircea_popescu: how do you mean ?

17:34:48 ThickAsThieves: it is a wot, no?

17:34:52 ThickAsThieves: miners mining

17:35:00 ThickAsThieves: people trusting the ledger

17:35:44 nubbins`: ehh....

17:36:01 mircea_popescu: but look : ten people in boondocks, new jersey somewhere who heard of bitcoin are tier 1

17:36:08 mircea_popescu: they all know this guy down the street, and trust him cause he's cool

17:36:10 mircea_popescu: he's tier 2.

17:36:25 mircea_popescu: he knows of the wot, and keeps deals with some other people so he can buy/sell btc for his friends at home

17:36:26 mircea_popescu: there

17:36:28 ThickAsThieves: core devs core-developing ( i also shoulda have added )

17:36:33 mircea_popescu: 's a guy that knows the mall and escrows for them

17:36:36 mircea_popescu: that guy is tier 3

17:36:41 mircea_popescu: these guys kind-of know each other

17:36:51 ThickAsThieves: but you are just making that all upo

17:36:53 ThickAsThieves: up

17:36:55 mircea_popescu: then one day mp wants to pay a girl in boondock, nj to wash his car with her tits

17:37:04 ThickAsThieves: i can make up tiers of compromise too

17:37:09 mircea_popescu: and the tier 3 guy goes "you know... you reall don't need to escrow mp

17:37:18 nubbins`: haha

17:37:22 nubbins`: "statistically speaking..."

17:37:30 mircea_popescu: im not making it up in that this has in fact happened.

17:37:34 nubbins`: nod

17:37:52 ThickAsThieves: yes but it does not counter the inevitable

17:37:52 nubbins`: fun fact, the Salty Spitoon is a restaurant in the Spongebob Squarepants cartoon

17:38:04 mircea_popescu: what'd be the inevitable ThickAsThieves ?

17:38:13 twizt: ty nubbins`

17:38:20 ThickAsThieves: that trusts systems are compromised on some timescale

17:38:23 nubbins`: np

17:38:23 twizt: not knowing that really bothered me for the last few days ;)

17:38:25 nubbins`: :)

17:38:30 ThickAsThieves: and i dont mean the earth exploding

17:38:37 nubbins`: i'm here to enlighten and occasionally mislead

17:38:38 mircea_popescu: i jus' don't see how this follows.

17:38:41 mircea_popescu: go into detail.

17:38:44 ThickAsThieves: for example

17:39:00 ThickAsThieves: i buy a GPU in tier 1, i mine,

17:39:12 ThickAsThieves: I buy an Erupter farm in tier 2

17:39:17 mircea_popescu: um

17:39:23 nubbins`: you can't be in both tiers

17:39:25 mircea_popescu: this doesn't seem to have anything to do with what i was saying

17:39:34 nubbins`: ^

17:39:55 ThickAsThieves: my point is that parties will seek to exp.loit the trust system

17:40:00 mircea_popescu: not really.

17:40:01 nubbins`: i think this went off the rails when tat stated that bitcoin is a web of trust

17:40:09 mircea_popescu: do your beer mates try to trick you into paying for their beer ?

17:40:15 ThickAsThieves: no

17:40:18 twizt: sometimes

17:40:23 mircea_popescu: right. parft of the definition of even beeing your mates

17:40:29 mircea_popescu: if they do you ditch them and get better ones.

17:40:37 mircea_popescu: now, suppose i need to evaluate 10mn beer drinkers.

17:40:40 mircea_popescu: can i do this ? how ?

17:40:43 twizt: or trick them into buying your weed

17:40:49 nubbins`: ^

17:40:50 mircea_popescu: simple : i ask all the people who know people who pay beer tabs.

17:40:52 mircea_popescu: 3 tiers.

17:40:56 nubbins`: twizt, nobody falls for that trick

17:41:03 mircea_popescu: this is how i find women, incidentally. i don't go into bars.

17:41:09 mircea_popescu: i just know girls that know girls that know girls.

17:41:10 twizt: its like barter

17:41:13 twizt: i got ur cheap beer

17:41:16 twizt: u get me expensive weed

17:41:20 twizt: (well atleast in USA)

17:41:29 KRS-: I saw two dancers french kissing yesterday it was nice.

17:41:31 ThickAsThieves: we are zoomed in to different parts of the 'wot'

17:41:36 mircea_popescu: seems so.

17:41:37 ThickAsThieves: i never said trust cant be develped

17:41:47 ThickAsThieves: nor that a wot cant be trusted

17:41:48 nubbins`: twizt, weed costs about the same to grow as tomatoes

17:41:51 nubbins`: plant-for-plant

17:41:58 ThickAsThieves: simply that over time, a trust system breaks down

17:42:01 twizt: wish i could grow yo

17:42:01 mircea_popescu: it's more than trust, tho. it's about control.

17:42:03 ThickAsThieves: and bitcoin is probly no different

17:42:05 nubbins`: consider that an ounce of weed should cost the same as a dozen hothouse tomatoes

17:42:09 twizt: my life would be 100x easier

17:42:10 mircea_popescu: what people in your wot say controls what you do.

17:42:29 mircea_popescu: which makes the wot a distributed political system

17:42:43 mircea_popescu: it's just that "distributed" does not mean one to many, as the nationalist representation of bork would have it.

17:42:44 nubbins`: a wot is not a static thing

17:42:49 ThickAsThieves: and what if we vote into power the wrong powers

17:42:53 nubbins`: i could trust someone fully today

17:42:56 mircea_popescu: it means few to one which groups in few to one which groups in few to one etc.

17:43:05 nubbins`: and then tomorrow he tries to strike my wife

17:43:11 nubbins`: now i don't trust him at all

17:43:12 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves if YOU vote the wrong guy YOU are screwed.

17:43:17 nubbins`: and any wot in which we both exist has changed

17:43:39 ThickAsThieves: suppose bitfury has 66% of mining right now

17:43:43 mircea_popescu: this is kind-of the gist of the old mpoe-pr post re personal responsibility

17:43:45 ThickAsThieves: just in their back pocket

17:43:59 mircea_popescu: "if all idiots vote in the wot like it is a nationalistic election, you will get a wot that works like your fucking country"

17:44:31 nubbins`: i rate +3 the users i'm most likely to enjoy drinking a beer with"

17:45:15 nubbins`: feel free to add the missing " or remove the dangling one

17:45:38 nubbins`: tautology either way

17:46:59 twizt: sounds like a martingale to me

17:47:01 ThickAsThieves: another thing I have trouble with is how we can easily point out the problems with inflationary money, but when we discuss the problems with deflationary we stop at "well hopefully it calms down"

17:47:23 twizt: some people can be trust worthy 99% of the time, and the 1% of time they get sketchy

17:47:31 twizt: can out weigh the 99% of times they were 'good'

17:47:31 mircea_popescu: we do?

17:47:42 ThickAsThieves: last time it was a topic at least

17:47:54 mircea_popescu: this is not on my list. quote!

17:48:42 ThickAsThieves: plz hold

17:50:58 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9349 @ 0.00092721 = 8.6685 BTC [-]

17:52:29 nubbins`: aha! paypal bucks sent, btc received

17:53:03 deadweasel: cool, now you can say you never rec'd and get your cash back! ;)

17:53:33 nubbins`: heheh

17:53:50 nubbins`: nah, this is a guy who i've traded casascius coins with before

17:54:08 deadweasel: glad he was trustworthy, twice!

17:54:13 ThickAsThieves: [18:10] <ThickAsThieves> we're kinda saying all spending of bitcoin is bad business, right?

17:54:13 ThickAsThieves: [18:10] <mike_c> yes

17:54:13 ThickAsThieves: [18:11] <mircea_popescu> we're saying that the quick increase in the btc rate puts responsible, competent ceos in the position where they forego fiat deployments

17:54:13 ThickAsThieves: [18:11] <mircea_popescu> this is a major problem for bitcoin atm.

17:54:13 ThickAsThieves: [18:11] <ThickAsThieves> atm, or forever?

17:54:14 ThickAsThieves: [18:11] <mircea_popescu> no argument. which is why it's a problem.

17:54:14 ThickAsThieves: [18:11] <mircea_popescu> ThickAsThieves hopefully it settles down.

17:54:24 nubbins`: me too

17:54:28 nubbins`: he sent first, even :0

17:54:34 deadweasel: whoa

17:54:54 nubbins`: ThickAsThieves, mircea_popescu: all spending of btc is not bad business.

17:54:58 mircea_popescu: but this is an interfacing problem, not a deflation problem

17:55:09 mircea_popescu: you'd have the same difficulties if you landed in zimbabwe with a trunk full of dollars :

17:55:16 ThickAsThieves: does the interfacing problem exist without deflation?

17:55:20 mircea_popescu: you can't "invest" in zimbabwe until their failrency settles down

17:55:49 ThickAsThieves: does deflation "settle"?>

17:55:59 mircea_popescu: there is no deflation caught in that discussion at all.

17:56:06 ThickAsThieves: what amount of settling is likely or required?

17:56:17 mircea_popescu: it's just the fiat bubble bursting.

17:56:33 ThickAsThieves: same result no?

17:56:56 ThickAsThieves: when fiat bubble is done, will we not continue to deflate?

17:56:57 mircea_popescu: in the sense jumping out of a plane and having a piano fall on you yield the same result.

17:57:09 mircea_popescu: it's just that parachutes do little to protect you from falling objects.

17:57:30 ThickAsThieves: more like jumping off the earth vs out of a plan

17:57:37 nubbins`: it behooves one wealthy in btc to delay purchases/spending for as long as possible

17:57:39 ThickAsThieves: youll die from both

17:57:40 mircea_popescu: when the fiat bubble is gone we will actually deflate, but the effects of THAT are not judgeable by this.

17:57:46 nubbins`: but that's distinct from never spending at all

17:57:46 mircea_popescu: besides, bitcoin is hugely inflationary.

17:57:50 ThickAsThieves: but you wont land jumping off the earthj

17:57:54 mircea_popescu: much more so that fiat CLAIMS to be

18:07:11 nubbins`: after skimming this article, i now understand

18:07:11 nubbins`: ;p

18:07:29 ThickAsThieves: i guess this conversation nullifies another question i had

18:08:15 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 4 @ 0.04979777 = 0.1992 BTC [+]

18:08:17 ThickAsThieves: during the recent NY panels, we do they only mention volatility, and never bitcoin's deflationary problems

18:08:23 ThickAsThieves: why

18:08:29 mircea_popescu: because they read fraudsters.

18:08:44 ThickAsThieves: which i guess i should reform to, why do they not worry about hoarding

18:08:59 ThickAsThieves: answer is, cuz there's nothing they can do about it

18:09:01 mircea_popescu: why do you think hoarding would be a problem ?

18:09:02 ThickAsThieves: i guess

18:09:16 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 129 @ 0.00295299 = 0.3809 BTC [+] {3}

18:09:46 ThickAsThieves: wouldnt extreme hoarding cause more volatility?\

18:09:57 mircea_popescu: let's do the following mental experiment.

18:10:14 mircea_popescu: suppose the original satoshi prototype only had 2.1mn total bitcoin, and original block reward was 5 btc.

18:10:17 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 90 @ 0.00295799 = 0.2662 BTC [+] {2}

18:10:22 mircea_popescu: what, if anything, do you think'd be different today ?

18:10:42 ThickAsThieves: core devs would add decimal places? :)

18:10:46 mircea_popescu: right.

18:11:00 mircea_popescu: now, imagine a different situation, in which 18.9 mn bitcoins have been hoarded.

18:11:09 mircea_popescu: why would things be different ?

18:11:20 nubbins`: s/hoarded/saved

18:11:25 mircea_popescu: strictly because those 18.9 mn coins COULD BE SPENT. but if they're spent... they're no longer hoarded.

18:11:37 ThickAsThieves: well it leaves potential for intense volatility

18:11:42 mircea_popescu: hoarding is self limiting. you either hoard or matter.

18:11:49 mircea_popescu: yes. it does.

18:12:01 mircea_popescu: guess what ? intense volatility hurts large holders most.

18:12:10 mircea_popescu: yet another point of elegant beauty typical of satoshi designs.

18:12:19 asciilifeform: that's sorta like saying that falling out of an airplane sans parachute isn't really so bad, i fell out of my bed as a boy once

18:12:20 mircea_popescu: definitely intelligent design at work here.

18:12:25 ThickAsThieves: heh

18:12:31 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform which part you mean ?

18:13:27 asciilifeform: traditional argument - if enough of the hoard were dumped, one could see a catastrophic stampede

18:13:33 mircea_popescu: sure.

18:13:43 mircea_popescu: but it is in fact the people hoarding that have least interest to see this happen.

18:13:54 ThickAsThieves: then hoarding is just building a bubble

18:13:56 mircea_popescu: the incentives are correctly alligned, which is the absolute most you can say of any system

18:14:07 asciilifeform: well that would depend on who's hoarding and why

18:14:14 mircea_popescu: notrly.

18:14:16 mircea_popescu: money perverts.

18:14:22 mircea_popescu: you can go into it thinking anything you wish

18:14:28 mircea_popescu: you'll come out of it thinking what it needs you to.

18:14:32 asciilifeform: 'nsa satoshi' hypothesis

18:14:45 ThickAsThieves: or anarchist satoshi

18:14:52 mircea_popescu: this is me doing the ny jew hand gesture.

18:14:56 ThickAsThieves: hehe

18:16:08 ThickAsThieves: can't have trust as value without thinking everyone is out to get you!

18:16:38 mircea_popescu: and can't have sex as value without trying to hump vaguely calf-shaped electricity poles.

18:16:46 mircea_popescu: or perhaps...

18:18:33 mircea_popescu: anyway, take the nsa satoshi hypothesis. so the nsa spent 5mn making this thing, which we all embraced. as part of that expenditure it has premined 10mn BTC, which it kept, secretly. we don't know.

18:18:59 mircea_popescu: today at nsa headquarters, "sir, i would like to apply for permission to spend 10bn usd dollars in btc equivalent by dumpting our stash"

18:19:08 mircea_popescu: "we don't have 10bn in the budget. application denied."

18:19:17 jayk: hohoho

18:19:38 mircea_popescu: bitcoin, even should it have made by nsa, has actually taken it over.

18:19:40 mircea_popescu: win.

18:19:53 ThickAsThieves: and for Anarcho Satoshi?

18:19:59 jayk: JP morgn wants to take it over

18:20:07 jayk: with their own version

18:20:40 ThickAsThieves: maybe i should make Satoshi was an Anarchist shirts, everyone will buy them thinking it's for the opposite reason

18:20:42 mircea_popescu: there's no way to ensure it won't be tat taking it over, with his own version.

18:20:53 ThickAsThieves: well thats obv

18:21:06 mircea_popescu: that's the problem here. bitcoin selects for and promotes some very narrow, specified things.

18:21:10 mircea_popescu: and it doesn't negotiate with terrorists.

18:23:12 jayk: before the banks accept bitcoin, they are trying to start their own version, like jp morgan is doing

18:23:39 ThickAsThieves: i just dont buy that

18:23:47 ThickAsThieves: no corp will make a coin anytime soon

18:24:13 ThickAsThieves: theyd have to be horribly out of touch

18:24:18 ThickAsThieves: like OracleCoin

18:24:20 ThickAsThieves: or such

18:24:49 ThickAsThieves: pretty much only Google or the USG could do it

18:25:12 Duffer1: you're talking about bankers here

18:25:21 Duffer1: horribly out of touch is their slogan

18:25:37 jurov: amazon alluded to it (maybe unintentionally)

18:25:49 mircea_popescu: a bank could od a very respectable coin.

18:25:49 ThickAsThieves: they arent so out of touch that they would sell something no one would buy

18:25:55 jurov: but that wouldn't be bad step

18:26:02 mircea_popescu: problem is, it'd need diametric's hr. which they dont have.

18:26:29 mircea_popescu: lol

18:26:52 jayk: i expect someone like netflix to offer payments in bitcoin soon

18:26:55 ThickAsThieves: USG probly wont even let a bank make its own money

18:27:10 Duffer1: sure they could do a respectable coin

18:27:17 ThickAsThieves: netflix wont accept btc in 2014

18:27:26 jayk: publicity stunt

18:27:29 ThickAsThieves: nope

18:27:32 jayk: drive theit stock up

18:27:32 jayk: yes

18:27:42 ThickAsThieves: they wouldnt wanna compromise

18:27:43 jayk: $$$

18:27:53 jayk: it works

18:28:01 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves it wouldn't have to be an us bank.

18:28:19 mircea_popescu: fun fact : at the time the amsterdam bank rose to prominence, the thing that propelled it was its marginality

18:28:21 ThickAsThieves: they likely learned their lesson about confusing their audience when they announced that new thing that never happened

18:28:23 ThickAsThieves: what was it

18:28:28 mircea_popescu: specifically, small countries had problems with their clipped/worn currency

18:28:47 mircea_popescu: in general, a small outlier could take over the entire world economy by doing something smart like this.

18:28:52 jayk: overstock has gone up $15 in 1year

18:28:56 jayk: they now accept bitcoin dont they

18:29:03 ThickAsThieves: lol

18:29:51 ThickAsThieves: that outlier would have to have some way to get trust and establish a blockchain

18:30:17 ThickAsThieves: like google putting its own into Android

18:30:32 mircea_popescu: no. like getting the ok of someone in the space with enough authortiy to ok it.

18:30:46 mircea_popescu: problem being, of course, the space is full of fakers, and otherwise insanely expensive.

18:31:13 ThickAsThieves: so what wot do they use?

18:31:23 mircea_popescu: one of those "pay through the nose or waste your money" sort of situations which institutions handle so poorly.

19:24:15 mircea_popescu: basically bitcoin got attacked in 2013 by the most unlikely of sources : the dieing start-up circus.

19:24:42 mircea_popescu: most nobody even noticed, or cared. except for the finest tuned of watchdogs or w/e

19:27:59 benkay: attacked?

19:28:06 mircea_popescu: well yes.

19:28:26 mircea_popescu: "There are more transactions of the cryptocurrency than Bitcoin, although it is only worth a tiny fraction of Bitcoin."

19:28:30 mircea_popescu: http://www.sbs.com.au/news/blog/2014/01/29/blog-dogecoins-message-chinese-investor-wolong

19:28:38 mircea_popescu: it's quite clear if you do aggregate counting.

19:29:06 mircea_popescu: they are attacking bitcoin. perhaps in the manner an ant attacks a rhino, but nevertheless. as far as the ant is concerned, in its own system of representations, that's what's going on.

19:29:30 mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=31-01-2014#469653

19:30:25 benkay: entertaining and all but from the ants perspective how is what they're doing an attack?

19:30:44 mircea_popescu: ant will kill rhino, skin it, wear the skin as king of the jungle.

19:31:01 benkay: like 'i am startup and will rule all the buttcorns'?

19:31:14 mircea_popescu: because if you get more fuckwits to retweet your inane shit you will thus therefore be "bigger" and "more important" than people with fewer retweets.

19:31:21 mircea_popescu: it's web start-up brain rot, quite typical.

19:32:15 mircea_popescu: in principle, every circlejerk imagines itself "the only thing out there". like, the us thinks it's "the world". any us court thinks it has universal jurisdiction. any us politician thinks that his decisions matter universally.

19:32:41 mircea_popescu: the va circus, as hopelessly fucked as they are, imagine that "all entrepreneurship" is... well... them.

19:33:07 mircea_popescu: that they will be crushed by much larger things that exist independent of their knowledge or understanding is about as aliento them as mpex customers to jimmothey

19:33:39 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 1 @ 0.15999999 BTC [+]

19:33:59 mircea_popescu: so basically what we have here, is "everyone" in the sense of "everyone that goes to tech conferences in SF and reads techcrunch religiously" figures they can take over this novel idea.

19:34:48 benkay: they do payroll and what have you

19:35:10 mircea_popescu: anyway. an attack it is.

19:35:29 mircea_popescu: ironically, while the correct move may seem to be to support ltc to crush them back into the swamp,

19:35:40 mircea_popescu: the actual correct move is to simply support other alternatives to burn their underbase.

19:36:01 mircea_popescu: you want them to eat ltc's lunch to some degree, much like you want about 50 other groups to start their own, doge-food eating bitcoin killers.

19:36:41 mircea_popescu: so you know... ATC/ALT getting more hash than doge serves a good purpose in the end.

19:36:50 mircea_popescu: (funny how nobody seems to have noticed that, too :p)

19:37:16 ThickAsThieves: so what you're saying is Altcoin really is the first altcoin with a purpose

20:24:19 ThickAsThieves: but back to my orginal question

20:24:27 ThickAsThieves: if i get other coingen'd source

20:24:32 ThickAsThieves: can we work from it?

20:24:57 ThickAsThieves: i assume itd need to be a SHA256 coin

20:25:06 mircea_popescu: possibly. you'll need the original block details tho

20:25:14 mircea_popescu: which you should be able to have a miner dump

20:25:21 ThickAsThieves: pankakke mined it

20:25:39 mircea_popescu: then i have no doubt pankake can do by hand whatever's done automatically by coingen.

20:25:44 mircea_popescu: which... sucks for him.

20:25:55 ThickAsThieves: why?

20:25:58 pankkake: from what I see with bernankoin, all the details of the genesis block are in block 0 too

20:25:58 ThickAsThieves: i'll pay

20:26:20 mircea_popescu: why, cause it's work.

20:26:30 pankkake: it's annoying, lol

20:26:38 ThickAsThieves: so annoying you wouldnt do it?

20:26:40 mircea_popescu: pankkake you want to make a better coingen.io ?

20:26:46 pankkake: making that thing work was half my "development" time

20:26:54 mircea_popescu: with incorporated market (so all your new coins can be INSTA traded for al lothers ?)

20:26:59 mircea_popescu: that may actually be a revenu driver.

20:27:01 pankkake: maybe, not sure if it's worth the time

20:27:08 ThickAsThieves: insta pools, etc

20:27:14 mircea_popescu: hard to guess, maybe a few bitcoins a month.

20:27:16 pankkake: yes, it has to provide exchange

20:27:21 ThickAsThieves: likely what the new owners of coingenio plan to do...

20:27:33 mircea_popescu: you can definitely sink the coingen thing, from what my research shows bluematt sold it to an idiot.

20:28:01 mircea_popescu: and you can blow cryptsy right out of the water, because in is wholly manned by idiots

20:28:02 ThickAsThieves: mp if you put money into such i thing i will too

20:28:08 mircea_popescu: (check out their hiring page sometime for lulz)

20:30:27 ThickAsThieves: lol

20:32:47 mircea_popescu: benkay you just put in all the work, then we list x% on mpex and people can invest.

20:32:55 mircea_popescu: let the market sort out the ownership structure.

20:32:56 ThickAsThieves: later we partner with fiverr for logo designers

20:37:29 blg: i didnt read the scrollback at all once again i apologize

20:37:48 pankkake: the cost would be mostly having to run each coin daemon/pool

20:38:05 pankkake: otherwise, everything is automated

20:38:13 pankkake: well I don't know how to automate the windows build

20:38:27 benkay: yeah we skip windows build

20:38:30 mircea_popescu: automate the windows build IN CLOJURE

20:38:33 benkay: no.

20:38:36 mircea_popescu: come on, if this isn't sexy i dunno what is.

20:41:47 benkay: okay so concerns

20:41:50 benkay: i don't want to run this

20:42:29 benkay: more than happy to set up servers etc but it must be actually run by not me

20:43:01 ThickAsThieves: well it should run wherever whomever knows best thinks it should

20:43:26 benkay: location is another concern i want delegated to capitalizers of operation

20:43:47 mircea_popescu: what's "location" ?

20:43:52 ThickAsThieves: of servers

20:43:59 benkay: well there's an altcoin market involved right?

20:44:07 mircea_popescu: if he doesn't run it how exactly could he establish location

20:44:13 mircea_popescu: benkay altcoin-to-coin stricjtly.

20:44:18 mircea_popescu: we don't encourage the use of scamfiat.

20:44:25 benkay: ofc

20:45:00 mircea_popescu: go ahead

20:45:39 benkay: colo with mpex?

20:45:46 mircea_popescu: then again this could easily live in the cloud.

20:45:57 mircea_popescu: prolly better that way as you'll have inelastic loads lal the time

20:46:06 benkay: no way are you suggesting putting wallets on virtual instances

20:46:26 mircea_popescu: why not /

20:46:35 jurov: benkay: no way you are suggesting putting wallets on frontend webserver

20:47:05 mircea_popescu: so they'r evirtual. what of it ? so are you. backup well, be happy.

20:48:25 benkay: i'm talking about linode-style virtualization compromises of wallets

20:51:01 benkay: well, it's just lisp so they shouldn't have too hard of a time

20:51:07 mircea_popescu: so you think.

20:51:14 mircea_popescu: windows lips compiler ?

20:51:20 benkay: agqreiuhglerjbgaksdljbfsd

20:51:22 mircea_popescu: preferably as a python module ?

20:51:28 asciilifeform: obligatory turd! http://www.loper-os.org/?p=42

20:51:39 mircea_popescu: can you compile lisp in python run on linux via cygwin ?

20:51:54 asciilifeform: (how many people keep a flame war strong for ~5 yrs)

20:51:59 mircea_popescu: (provided of course you use ALL CAPS in the code)

20:52:02 benkay: mircea_popescu: http://docs.hylang.org/en/latest/

20:52:06 jurov: only with javascript and node emulation layer

20:52:25 mircea_popescu: jurov you mean they could get this in phpmyadmin ?

20:52:29 asciilifeform: write it in INTERCAL.

20:52:31 mircea_popescu: cause that'd help, they know phpmyadmin

20:52:33 jurov: implemented in haskell

20:53:09 mircea_popescu: but all the fun aside, srsly, a foss clojure implementation of this would actually be a great thing.

20:53:34 benkay: so: dev priorities then

20:53:55 Namworld: What the heck is this you are all talking about? Some retarted process that equals job security because you're then the only one able to update and maintain the business apps and software?

20:54:21 benkay: coingen, exchange, poolgen?

20:54:24 mircea_popescu: Namworld im trying to give the kid a breadloaf and he;'s trying to price himself out of it.

20:54:27 mircea_popescu: like all business ever.

20:54:48 benkay: exchange, coingen, poolgen?

20:54:52 mircea_popescu: benkay all 4 are needed out of the gate.

20:55:20 mircea_popescu: anyway, from what i read of lisp it is very productive and should be easy if you know what you're doing so like 500 lines of code.

20:55:24 benkay: what's number 4?

20:55:28 mircea_popescu: seeds

20:55:30 Jere_Jones: lol

20:55:34 benkay: ah seeds

20:55:38 Jere_Jones: "Just a couple of if statements"

20:56:07 mircea_popescu: Jere_Jones i know bunches of ppl who freelance, right ? "plz build me a better brain. should be easy if you know what you're doing'. 90% of all projects.

20:56:15 asciilifeform: intercal, i tell ya. what other language has a 'come from' statement.

20:56:26 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform basic read backwards ?

20:57:45 Jere_Jones: mircea_popescu: I'm in process of writting an exchange and the devil is in the details. Anyway, that was a joke from a manager that I used to have where everything was simple and just needed a "couple of if statements".

20:58:13 KRS-: Oh cool, another coin.

20:58:17 KRS-: http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/150/6

20:58:21 mircea_popescu: another coin, another dolla.

20:59:28 KRS-: Other currencies, like Bitcoin, use dumb hard coded ‘mining’ processes that produces coins at a fixed rate that can’t change.

21:02:33 jayk: superbowl time

21:02:33 jayk: bbl

21:02:55 pankkake: altcoin singularity = you only need to input parameters, exchange, pool comes online, middlecoin mines it and sells it

21:03:10 mircea_popescu: and sends you a report of how much profit it made.

21:03:29 mircea_popescu: and an animated gif of the champagne.

21:03:33 mircea_popescu: it's all very virtual.

21:03:43 benkay: has anyone here built an altcoin from source?

21:03:44 jurov: benkay i'm visual person and do bes with actual shapes, not just screenful of text

21:13:06 benkay: 's why i keep saying stop saying clojure to mp

21:13:07 mircea_popescu: it is a lot of work, yes. that's part of why it's worth doing, it always pays to sink your teeth in and do a fundamental bit well than try and chew a little off the edges.

21:13:08 ThickAsThieves: needs ongoing work too

21:13:56 benkay: how is the relationship with kakobrekla set up for ongoing work on bitbet?

21:13:59 pankkake: writing the exchange can be fun. the rest… eh

21:14:10 mircea_popescu: he got half the equity.

21:14:25 benkay: so he's incentivized to ship more to improve his profits

21:14:56 mircea_popescu: he's incentivised to have the thing running smoothly., which it has been.

21:14:56 benkay: i actually think setting up build servers would be fun

21:15:30 mircea_popescu: and that too was a lot of work, even if not necessarily obvious immediately.

21:22:48 dub: what needs hosting?

21:23:00 mircea_popescu: the future of stupidity!

21:48:25 mircea_popescu: you don't want to be stuck if you want to move domains,

21:48:37 mircea_popescu: you don't want anyone deciding if and when to put a "warning page" on your material,

21:48:56 mircea_popescu: you don't want to help google in any way whatsoever unless it's paying for it.

21:49:01 mircea_popescu: do your own things.

21:50:34 herbijudlestoids: i think im ok with most of those things, and i feel like as long as there is no ads on the site then its probably costing google more than they are making off me in analytics

21:51:01 mircea_popescu: i'm never going to comment on it, for instance.

21:51:28 herbijudlestoids: im sure in the cases where iv said something stupid enough to warrant your comment, ill hear about it from gribble anyway :P

21:51:47 mircea_popescu: entirely possible.

21:52:07 mircea_popescu: all hitler needs is for ordinary people to keep using google.

21:59:17 punkman: beats blogspot

22:00:02 pankkake: ?

22:00:27 mircea_popescu: assets-blog

22:00:34 herbijudlestoids: well i would prefer pastebin but it doesnt let me insert content like images and equations

22:00:38 mircea_popescu: can you put a wordpress.com clone on the assass ?

22:00:38 pankkake: you're just switching evil google by evil MP

22:00:58 mircea_popescu: there's a difference in evil. @mp you can scream.

22:01:02 pankkake: WP.com is open source too, but… it's work to maintain it. I don't see the point

22:01:47 mircea_popescu: the point of work is control.

22:01:53 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: i showed your blog to a few people over the weekend, they *all* asked if the guy in the photo with the beard is me

22:02:00 mircea_popescu: lol

22:02:02 herbijudlestoids: i kind of look like that

22:02:10 herbijudlestoids: (especially when im bearded)

22:02:24 mircea_popescu: "if your daddy doesn't have a beard you have two moms"

22:02:24 pankkake: I do host my own blogs, but it takes time, sometimes I fuck up, etc. I don't want to do that for other people

22:02:39 mircea_popescu: pankkake why not ? the more you fuck up for other people the more you have reason to love them.

22:02:55 pankkake: no, and I have done it before

22:03:26 herbijudlestoids: so between posting the blog article here and on reddit i managed to drive 180 views to the article

22:03:34 herbijudlestoids: interesting

22:06:23 mircea_popescu: the last thing someone does in a jurisdiction that made btc illegal is dump it

22:07:09 Dimsler_: you can apply that to prohibition in the US

22:07:11 Dimsler_: and the war on drugs

22:07:17 Dimsler_: nobody was dumping anything

22:07:21 mircea_popescu: TATonawalk adding to the workload at this point is stupid. let it be simple.

22:07:22 KRS-: makes sense..sorry for my ignorance.

22:07:36 jurov: rly. if govt wanted to tax it instead, that could cause some problem.

22:23:10 mircea_popescu: TATonawalk you mean dafe ?

22:23:55 mircea_popescu: "The Counterparty Team just went ahead and wrote their own stuff, doing what Colored Coins, NxT and Mastercoin failed to do these past 6 ? 9 months. Not even Ripple has assets like these issued and trading."

22:24:06 mircea_popescu: well at least *part* of that statement is correct.

22:25:06 asciilifeform: 1) set up 'proof of burn' addrs with secret escape hatch 2) profit

22:25:34 pankkake: oh of course it comes with its coin

22:25:57 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform neverhteless, the assessment that nxt, cc, mc etc did nothing the past 9 months is correct.

22:26:21 mircea_popescu: then again cc did nothing over 3 installments and 2+ years.

22:26:25 asciilifeform: did nothing?

22:26:32 asciilifeform: other than chump-vacuuming, you mean ?

22:26:45 mircea_popescu: hardly any of that, either.

22:27:10 mircea_popescu: the thing with chump vacuuming is that creating the impression of a lot of chumps having been vacuumed already is part and parcel of the model.

22:27:34 mircea_popescu: sort-of like if a lion's success in catching gazelles was helped by it going around with a lot of dead gazelles.

22:27:52 asciilifeform: naturally, a discerning chump will insist on parking in a mass grave of his peers, not some lonely hole in an abandoned lot

22:27:58 mircea_popescu: there;d be dead gazelle lure shops for entrepreneurial lions

22:28:08 pankkake: I haven't looked up nxt's proof of stage algo… the half open java source doesn't help

23:03:54 ThickAsThieves: not bad!

23:04:25 mircea_popescu: actually from there seems people are coding their bots to sorta split orders over ticks huh

23:04:45 herbijudlestoids: almost certainly

23:04:49 mircea_popescu: (i wouldn't expect any pattern, since most everyone will be trading via pympex or similar, it's trivial to just schedule w/e)

23:05:02 mircea_popescu: diurnal or w/e i mean

23:05:25 herbijudlestoids: well most stuff i watch is traded algorithmically in aggregate and still has strong diurnal patterns

23:05:35 herbijudlestoids: i guess usage is much higher

23:05:38 mircea_popescu: this is a point

23:05:49 mircea_popescu: maybe people actually suck at algos in fiat ?

23:06:01 mircea_popescu: ie, their algorithmia is more akin to a wheelchair than a car

23:06:51 mircea_popescu: alternatively, australia, japan, china, russia, iran, europe, the us... there might be some slight pattern not visible cause low sample yet.

23:07:01 herbijudlestoids: yes thats possible too

23:07:19 mircea_popescu: basically what do you see in the other stuff, the pacific ocean right ?

23:07:54 herbijudlestoids: depends, but mostly the tokyo/london/NY is the 3 prominent phases

23:07:59 mircea_popescu: ah

23:08:09 mircea_popescu: well also yeah, bitcoin doesn't realyl have "financial centers"

23:08:11 herbijudlestoids: and the hours where they overlap liquidity is strongest

23:08:58 herbijudlestoids: for example tokyo/london overlap is only slightly less liquid than london/NY overlap, and in currencies like AUDJPY or index futs like HSI its more liquid

23:09:33 herbijudlestoids: doesnt have financial centers, yet ;)

23:09:57 mircea_popescu: i doubt it'll ever have any. why would it ?

23:11:08 mircea_popescu: also... i suspect a large number of btc people are not-normal sleep patterned.

23:11:32 herbijudlestoids: mircea_popescu: lets say for example bitstamp becomes the #1 worldwide retail payment gateway foreverything forever

23:11:41 mircea_popescu: okay

23:11:52 herbijudlestoids: obviously they will affect the diurnal pattern because they do payouts on a cyclical basis

23:12:00 herbijudlestoids: err bitstamp==bitpay, sorry

23:12:18 mircea_popescu: lol bitstamp made some sense, even if kako was gonna kill you once he got his electric chair back

23:12:26 mircea_popescu: but bitpay ?! i dun see it in any sense.

23:13:07 mircea_popescu: anyway. few people if at all trade on this junkie's routine, of gotta wait for check to clear style.

23:13:25 mircea_popescu: generally people maintain liquidity through planning, it'd be rare that a trade has to be stayed because waiting for confirms.

23:14:04 herbijudlestoids: ye, i was mostly just curious, actually kind of hoping to see an obvious time based pattern so i could focus some efforts into that window

23:14:08 mircea_popescu: it'd also be antieconomical
