01:16:45 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> lol so basically bitbet is now sitting pretty on 30-40 btc unearned income ? << Just imagine if people decided to fuck with BitBet by using referal links and cut that to 15 - 20

01:16:59 mircea_popescu: not possibru anymoar.

01:17:12 mircea_popescu: they can only cut future revenue/unearned incomes

01:17:45 mircea_popescu: o look, cloudflare is failing to protect blockchain.info and claiming the problem resides with blockchain info.

01:17:48 mircea_popescu: such assholes. wow.

01:18:30 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> they can only cut future revenue/unearned incomes << Right, the move to cut referalls from all of a bet's rake to part of it was solid

01:18:53 mircea_popescu: no, it's just, the bets that are already in are already in, referrals already paid and accounted for.

01:19:44 BingoBoingo: I know, but I mean in the future where every scam site tries to Raep BitBet referrals because it pays better than advertising

01:19:44 mircea_popescu: ;;calc 3817.19563162 * [market-last]

01:21:14 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19500 @ 0.00074595 = 14.546 BTC [+] {2}

01:21:52 mircea_popescu: i like the guy's style tho. testing bitbet deposit address with one bitcoin!

01:21:54 mircea_popescu: like a baws!

01:24:48 decimation: asciilifeform: neat video

01:29:44 decimation: I use a unicomp on a mac, it lacks the 'f-key' panel on the left

01:29:59 decimation: those keys would be handy in emacs

01:35:43 penguirker: New blog post: http://contravex.com/2014/10/02/thank-your-lucky-trolls/

01:39:21 mircea_popescu: http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetell/2014/01/14/dogecoin-transactions-outpacing-those-in-bitcoin-heres-why-thats-not-surprising/

01:39:21 assbot: Dogecoin transactions are outpacing those in bitcoin; here's why that's not surprising - The Tell - MarketWatch

01:39:31 mircea_popescu: ahhh, nothing quite like a little bit of historical, failed shilling.

01:39:40 mircea_popescu: fuck you, marketwatch. how's that egg on your face ?

01:41:41 mircea_popescu: is it me or is pete_d on a roll ?

01:42:00 decimation: press organs are about as accountable as usg 'leaders'

01:42:39 mircea_popescu: in that the difference is nigligible

01:42:42 mircea_popescu: with i from nigglet.

01:44:32 decimation: here is an example of them holding each other accountable http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/02/obama-attacks-fox-news-in-northwestern-speech/

01:44:32 assbot: Obama Attacks Fox News In Northwestern Speech | The Daily Caller

01:44:47 decimation: "“But I have laid out my ideas to create more jobs and grow more wages,” Obama told students at Northwestern University following a high-dollar fundraiser for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn. ”A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out theirs. There’s a reason fewer Republicans are preaching doom on deficits – because they’re now manageable.”"

01:45:09 mircea_popescu: hahaha

01:45:10 decimation: fox news' biggest mistake is covering this guy at all

01:45:28 mircea_popescu: no dude it's funny

01:45:30 BingoBoingo: He's on a role

01:45:43 mircea_popescu: http://i.imgur.com/bBJmK6O.gif << cat managing deficits.

01:46:10 thickasthieves: <+[]bot> Bet placed: 999 BTC for No //// !!!!

01:46:27 decimation: 'lunatic leftie derps to young idiots', click here to learn more

01:46:50 mircea_popescu: in what sense is obama left anyway ?

01:47:11 decimation: well, I guess he's in favor of growing the bureaucracy

01:47:19 mircea_popescu: that's left ?

01:47:36 mircea_popescu: actually, the better question being, what IS left anymore anyway.

01:47:51 mircea_popescu: seems totally bankrupt ideology. intellectually, practically... what's it stand for anymore ?

01:47:57 decimation: well, I would suggest that the left has so utterly dominated for so long that they have become a cartoon of themselves

01:48:14 thickasthieves: i have a feeling this berksire bet will be legendary past our years

01:48:20 mircea_popescu: more like, the derpage in charge has been nominally identified as "left" for so long.

01:48:45 decimation: I guess the ideological leftists are nominally in favor of the derps

01:48:46 mircea_popescu: thickasthieves actually, it's quite possible it's the only thing that'l even be remembered

01:49:02 mircea_popescu: sort-of like nobody remembers glbse, or bitcoin magazine, or w/e other derpage went on in the 2012s.

01:49:05 thickasthieves: so who's putting another 1k on Yes?

01:49:41 mircea_popescu: the thing with that is... people have waited for a while. as a result the sides are weight-unbalanced. the seed 1k on yes has a 100k weight whereas current bets only get 40k

01:49:50 mircea_popescu: whereas the recent 2.5k on no have 40k weight.

01:49:53 mircea_popescu: or 45 w/e

01:50:06 mircea_popescu: so the pool is like 123mn to 100mn.

01:50:16 decimation: it'll be awesome of btc/usd goes up another leg in the next few months and that bet becomes bigger than whatsapp

01:50:20 mircea_popescu: which btw... i wonder if one day the dollar value of bets will be < the pool values :D

01:50:26 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> actually, the better question being, what IS left anymore anyway. << Honestly as an alternative to fleeing the US staying back to oversee partitioning is becoming an attractive option

01:50:43 mircea_popescu: "oversee".

01:50:50 mircea_popescu: that's like what, overseeing the flood ?

01:50:55 thickasthieves: or the mines

01:51:09 mircea_popescu: decimation totally lol. if btc runs up to say 800 that no;ll need a shitload o' hedgin'.

01:51:40 thickasthieves: and/or if BRKA corrects

01:51:59 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Basically taking pictures, recording the lulz

01:52:09 decimation: BingoBoingo: except you are basically propsing that you want to surf the wave of terror to power

01:52:15 decimation: works out for some, not so much for otheres

01:52:58 thickasthieves: i have 5btc at 100k weight on Yes

01:53:33 decimation: at $800 the total bet is worth $3 mil

01:54:11 BingoBoingo: decimation: Nah, maybe I just want to see the world burn? I've got a camera. I've got a tent. By oversee I don't mean taking control, but documenting the absence of control for great lulz.

01:55:08 decimation: sure, sounds like fun. maybe we can 'mad max' together over the western wastes

01:55:27 BingoBoingo: Maybe?

01:55:38 BingoBoingo: One can't exactly oversee entropy in the same way one oversaw order on the plantations

03:56:51 BingoBoingo: Dimsler: My understanding of it is that in US prisons Scandanavian lore is appropriated so as to be "Whiter than the Brits"

03:57:00 DanielKrawisz: Oh, hello.

03:57:05 mircea_popescu: I've got a camera. I've got a tent. << lmao what an attitude

03:57:15 DanielKrawisz: I don't understand IRC very well. I'm trying to get into the WOT.

03:57:28 Dimsler: oh no

03:57:28 mircea_popescu: where was that wiki link

03:57:58 mircea_popescu: right.

03:58:32 Dimsler: lol

03:58:39 Dimsler: what the fuck is the nakamatoinstitute?

03:58:49 Dimsler: seriously are you going to be preaching the satoshibible here?

03:59:17 mircea_popescu: heraldonline ?!

03:59:30 BingoBoingo: <Dimsler> what the fuck is the nakamatoinstitute? << Recent college kids playing with the idea of an online museum

03:59:33 DanielKrawisz: There is no satoshi bible.

03:59:37 DanielKrawisz: It's living code.

03:59:45 Dimsler: oh like the matrix?

04:00:00 mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz this "reddit should build on bitcoin" stuff is lulzy.

04:00:07 mircea_popescu: reddit isn't there to build something useful.

04:00:18 Dimsler: i know

04:00:19 DanielKrawisz: Basically, we started out as an econ discussion group at a university called the Mises Circle, but then I got everyone talking almost exclusively about bitcoin.

04:00:21 mircea_popescu: reddit is there to try and leech something if at all possible. sort-of like an online hot topic.

04:00:37 decimation: BingoBoingo: I suspect that some degree of 'white power' in prision is 'us v. them'

04:00:38 DanielKrawisz: And then we were like, "Wouldn't it be hilarious if we started the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute?" for a while and then we stopped making jokes about it and just did it.

04:00:39 Dimsler: reddit is built off cat pictures and gonewild

04:00:50 Dimsler: its a source of amusement, entertainment, and misinformation

04:00:59 DanielKrawisz: Yeah, I think reddit doesn't quite understand what they're doing.

04:01:06 mircea_popescu: <mats_cd03> why does freenode suck so much << because they essentially gave up ? just riding things as they are into the night, as it were.

04:01:21 Dimsler: a pascification of the proletariat

04:01:35 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz, they fully understand what they are doing

04:02:01 DanielKrawisz: Oh, they are doing a deliberate pump and dump?

04:02:19 Dimsler: no

04:02:31 Dimsler: they are doing what cryptographics has made popular

04:02:35 Dimsler: there own digital currency

04:02:40 mircea_popescu: <Dimsler> seriously are you going to be preaching the satoshibible here? <<< unlike 99% of the derps derping about bitcoin, i don't recall these folks saying anything infuriatingly stupid.

04:03:14 DanielKrawisz: Oh yeah, we always complain about the stupidity over in our group too.

04:03:16 Dimsler: mircea_popescu, he called it the nakamoto institute

04:03:21 BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> I've got a camera. I've got a tent. << lmao what an attitude << Given the alternatives in Usaschwitz, that Thompson guy found an interesting defense against the Feds with his selectively unreliable narration.

04:03:23 Dimsler: how is that not initself infuriating

04:03:26 mircea_popescu: so what's in a name.

04:03:47 mircea_popescu: i dunno, it doesn't get me. it doesn't have bit into it.

04:04:05 Dimsler: ugh

04:04:05 mircea_popescu: if it were the nakabit insticoin it'd have been more annoying. course also lulzier.

04:04:20 mircea_popescu: especially if the bad instigation puns started flowing.,

04:04:22 DanielKrawisz: Well we wanted to use that name because we agreed that a lot of the bitcoin world was trying to downplay him.

04:04:22 Dimsler: people that put bit or coin into anything should be publically flogged

04:04:39 mircea_popescu: you mean cryptopublically bitflogged ?

04:04:47 DanielKrawisz: Hahaha

04:04:47 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz, because cryptographics was not invented by him

04:05:05 Dimsler: and cryptographic based currencies and other online currencies have been around since digicash

04:05:07 Dimsler: which was like 1989

04:05:08 mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz that's unavoidable. it's the nature of the ignorant twerps making up the us horde, to overplay their own narcisism against history.

04:05:15 DanielKrawisz: Digicash is very different from bitcoin.

04:05:23 mircea_popescu: i'm surprised nobody's yet acting as if they invented hitler, back in iowa or something

04:05:30 DanielKrawisz: It's a money substitute, like a bank note. I'm writing a paper on this stuff now.

04:05:34 mircea_popescu: Dimsler get outta here.

04:05:38 Dimsler: lol

04:05:45 mircea_popescu: this is like saying cars have been around since 1600 because oxcarts.

04:05:56 DanielKrawisz: Haha, indeed.

04:06:11 mircea_popescu: there is exactly zero continuity between bitcoin and all the idiotic derpage prior.

04:06:15 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: surprised nobody's yet acting as if they invented hitler << americans used to. huey p. long was supposed to be 'original hitler'

04:06:17 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz, can you write about how satoshi didn't understand economics and based his theory on murray rothbards teachings

04:06:31 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform right you are, huh.

04:06:45 mircea_popescu: Dimsler wouldja stop trying to drive people into a wall deliberately.

04:06:55 DanielKrawisz: Then there were some proposals for digital collectibles; b-money, RPOW, and bit gold. Those things were an important step forward, but RPOW was the only one ever implemented, and it didn't take off. I don't think they would have worked. Bitcoin fixed a lot of stuff that they got wrong.

04:06:55 Dimsler: lol ok ok

04:07:27 mircea_popescu: yeah, like, penicillin fixed a lot of stuff shaman cures got wrong.

04:07:44 mircea_popescu: let's be clear here : wanting something, no matter how intensively, is NOT grounds for relation with the thing once made.

04:07:51 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz, quantitative monetary theory

04:07:54 Dimsler: i'll leave that with you

04:07:57 *: asciilifeform has yet to meet a p2p derpatronics experimented from '95-'05 era who -didn't- have own secret pseudo-bitcoin at the time

04:07:59 Dimsler: to dwell on

04:07:59 mircea_popescu: this is the difference between invention and daydreaming, something my mother explained to me when i was like 6

04:08:06 asciilifeform: *experimenter

04:08:11 mircea_popescu: and i wanted to know if when someone invents something, they have to also say how it's to be made

04:08:30 DanielKrawisz: Well Bitcoin used a lot of elements and ideas from the digital collectibles, so I think there is some continutity, but it's very innovative too.

04:08:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you mean then, or now ?

04:08:39 asciilifeform: then.

04:08:44 mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz zero elements. i challenge you, list one such

04:08:45 asciilifeform: and in very dire cases - now

04:08:45 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform bs.

04:09:00 DanielKrawisz: Ok Dimsler

04:09:11 BingoBoingo: <asciilifeform> mircea_popescu: surprised nobody's yet acting as if they invented hitler << americans used to. huey p. long was supposed to be 'original hitler' << Long himself had a prototype in William Jennings Bryant

04:09:30 Dimsler: i thought chaplin was the original hitler?

04:09:30 mircea_popescu: i dunno what huey long is supposed to be other than a sort of us peron.

04:09:33 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: mr mold fessed up to having had something in that vein. and at one point i did. (neither very interesting)

04:09:34 Dimsler: moustache and all

04:09:46 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what;'s the meaning of "in that vein" ?

04:09:56 mircea_popescu: because in 1985 i had something "in the vein" of the ipad.

04:10:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: attempt at solving basic problem of the 'martian bank'

04:10:05 mircea_popescu: needless to say... i'm no twinkletwerps.

04:10:08 asciilifeform: !s martian bank

04:10:09 assbot: 0 results for 'martian bank' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=martian+bank

04:10:10 mircea_popescu: attempt ? orly ?

04:10:17 asciilifeform: hm

04:10:24 asciilifeform: !s lunar bank

04:10:24 assbot: 0 results for 'lunar bank' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=lunar+bank

04:10:24 mircea_popescu: well done. you know who else ? some guy at the time of the invention of the wheel

04:10:26 asciilifeform: damn

04:10:48 mircea_popescu: attempts are no qualification. i attempted to prove fermat's theorem, too

04:10:56 Dimsler: i could probably argue that humanity would be far better off if they hadn't invented the wheel

04:10:57 asciilifeform: that was precisely the kind of thing meant.

04:10:59 mircea_popescu: does not mean i had something in the vein of the complex set theory that eventualy did it.

04:11:00 Dimsler: probably even happier too

04:11:21 asciilifeform: just observing that a mathematically-inclined boy is of course going to try to prove flt.

04:11:26 mircea_popescu: sure.

04:11:36 mircea_popescu: o also, i attempted to bring a dead girl back.

04:11:42 mircea_popescu: which i guess makes me something in the vein of jesus ?

04:11:46 Dimsler: hey thats possible now

04:11:51 asciilifeform: how dead ?

04:11:54 Dimsler: i heard 16hrs after the heart stops beating

04:11:59 Dimsler: if you cool down the body

04:12:01 mircea_popescu: Dimsler not after her blood's sorted by weight

04:12:04 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ^ that dead.

04:12:07 asciilifeform: lol

04:12:12 asciilifeform: parachute didn't open ?

04:12:21 mircea_popescu: long story.

04:12:33 *: asciilifeform would probably enjoy this story

04:12:49 mircea_popescu: when we're in prison, if we end up in the same cell, gladly.

04:12:49 DanielKrawisz: You can read my paper when it's done.

04:12:54 asciilifeform: lol

04:13:03 mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz link it here, someone prolly will.

04:13:07 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz, are you on here via mobile device?

04:13:15 DanielKrawisz: No, why?

04:13:23 Dimsler: nothing just wondering

04:13:28 mircea_popescu: cause he doesn't understand how ip allocation works.

04:13:49 Dimsler: lol no?

04:14:21 Dimsler: could easily be on wifi

04:14:23 mircea_popescu: Dimsler seen a lot of mobile devices on times warner cable ?

04:14:42 Dimsler: he could have a router at home, and talking on his ipad

04:14:48 mircea_popescu: sure.

04:14:50 Dimsler: he was capitalizing each fresh sentence

04:14:52 Dimsler: hence why i asked

04:15:18 mircea_popescu: That's just good interneting!

04:16:19 decimation: !up DanielKrawisz_

04:16:37 DanielKrawisz_: Oh dang it.

04:16:43 DanielKrawisz_: Well I guess I'll have to complete the process later.

04:17:08 mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz_ you know this julia turianski chick ?

04:17:19 DanielKrawisz_: Never heard of her.

04:17:26 Dimsler: lol

04:17:30 Dimsler: surprise surprise

04:17:41 mircea_popescu: a ok.

04:18:03 mircea_popescu: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/daniel-krawisz/21/bb1/323 << you know that's like, the worst cv i ever saw on linkedin btw ?

04:18:33 DanielKrawisz_: Oh, she did 26 ways to be a bitcoin hater?

04:18:36 DanielKrawisz_: Yeah, that was pretty funny.

04:18:53 DanielKrawisz_: What's wrong with my linkedin cv?

04:18:56 mircea_popescu: fellow canuckian, thinks she knows everybody.

04:19:15 Dimsler: no hes texan

04:19:20 Dimsler: hes just behind his colo now

04:19:21 mircea_popescu: o you gotta be kidding me. videogame developer 2012-2012, "research director" at nowhere, 2014-onwards ?

04:19:28 mircea_popescu: dja have any idea how that looks to business eyes ?

04:19:37 DanielKrawisz_: No, I've never done any business.

04:19:40 decimation: yeah um is that a paid position?

04:19:54 Dimsler: none of these look like paid anything

04:20:26 Dimsler: I teach bitcoiners about the implications of Bitcoin so as to alter their behavior in a way that improves the overall health of the Bitcoin network.

04:20:34 Dimsler: lol can you teach us?

04:20:53 Dimsler: i thirst for knowledge about how to keep my monies healthy

04:21:27 DanielKrawisz_: Are you just trying to get in an argument with me or something?

04:21:34 mircea_popescu: which one of us ?

04:22:01 DanielKrawisz_: Dimsler, sorry.

04:22:33 mircea_popescu: i think he's just being jadedly nihilistic.

04:22:46 DanielKrawisz_: Oh ok. Well good for him.

04:23:12 mircea_popescu: meh, that thing's like humour. works a lot better if unexpected.

04:23:19 Dimsler: hey i'd burn everything

04:23:21 Dimsler: down to the ground

04:26:45 decimation: DanielKrawisz_: I'm kinda serious, how do you make money 'researching bitcoin'? people gotta eat right?

04:27:07 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz_, you have been an academic for 15yrs?

04:28:41 Dimsler: i'm not sure if some of these articles contain the eloquence of someone with a masters in physics

04:28:56 mircea_popescu: "Alternative Right?s Colin Liddell Attacks Andrew Anglin for Defending Robert Ransdell Against RamZPaul 332 comments"

04:34:28 mircea_popescu: such smallness. i had no idea there's so much tiny at hand.

04:35:12 decimation: middle america is routinely mocked by the elites on the coasts

04:35:27 mircea_popescu: apparently it's being mocked by the elites abroad, too.

04:35:30 Duffer1: and by reasonable people the world over

04:35:37 mircea_popescu: but seriously, this derp can't stand for middle anything.

04:35:52 decimation: he's a derp, no doubt, highlighted by the local lefties

04:36:16 decimation: kulaks gotta be dekulaked and all

04:36:22 mircea_popescu: the most he could stand for would be perhaps a brand of goth from one particular hs. they were doing hitler that year.

04:42:51 mircea_popescu: i love argentina

04:42:57 mircea_popescu: o which reminds me i was going to post some pics

04:42:59 Dimsler: fuck thats exactly where i belong

04:43:02 DanielKrawisz_: Originally I was going to be a physics professor but there are a lot of things about professional physics academics that are a lot less fun than the physics, so I dropped out.

04:43:03 Dimsler: i gotta pack my shit down there

04:43:22 Dimsler: DanielKrawisz_, so you started studying economics?

04:43:25 mircea_popescu: DanielKrawisz_ originally i was going to be a physicist.

04:43:33 mircea_popescu: but i actually had more sense than that at about 16.

04:43:35 Dimsler: lol

04:43:37 decimation: DanielKrawisz_: the general feeling here is that academia in the us is a bureaucracy that has little to do with actually advancing human knowledge/technology

04:43:37 Dimsler: lawyer here

04:43:43 DanielKrawisz_: Cool.

04:44:13 mircea_popescu: Dimsler orly ? what do you practice ?

04:44:21 Dimsler: oh nothing now

04:44:25 mircea_popescu: what did you practice.

04:44:39 Dimsler: nothing we were talking about schooling

04:44:48 mircea_popescu: that's not a lawyer now is it.

04:45:00 DanielKrawisz_: Yeah, academics is a leisure activity, and there's kind of a conflict when it becomes professional.

04:45:04 Dimsler: no way left lawschool

04:45:17 Dimsler: now i spend my days spinning in a chair really

04:45:32 mircea_popescu: if a girl did that they'd call her a slut.

04:45:38 Dimsler: see

04:46:33 Dimsler: actually i left law school to program algorhythms for automated trading systems

04:46:36 decimation: well, there's certainly a conflict of interest between "researching physics" and "maintaining a career in physics"

04:46:49 Dimsler: msg assbot !up

04:46:52 Dimsler: to up yourlse

04:47:42 mircea_popescu: decimation myeah, actual science is for rich people, not for clerks.

04:48:00 Dimsler: just like BA studies are

04:48:13 mircea_popescu: people who hope to make their living at science can not be considered scientists. that should be the first crtierion on the peer review process. "independently wealthy ?" if no, can not participate in science.

04:48:23 bounce: with nice hand-blown instruments in brass cases!

04:48:41 mircea_popescu: this seems obvious enough with say, love. people who hope to earn a living at it can't really make very good lovers.

04:48:44 decimation: mainly because they have the 'free time' that asciilifeform desires

04:48:52 mircea_popescu: yet somehow when it leaves that realm everyone's suddenly confused.

04:49:15 decimation: probably the same thing with medicine too

04:49:39 mircea_popescu: with the independent professions it becomes more iffy. doctors and lawyers earned their keep doing the job for centuries without ill effect.

04:49:42 Dimsler: medicine is such nigger work

04:49:49 mircea_popescu: for just as long as they depended for pay on their own customers.

04:49:52 bounce: plenty scientists have done so on sufferance of the local lord, no reason why they couldn't do it on sufferance of the government

04:50:02 mircea_popescu: once they started being paid by corporations / the state, it all went to shit.

04:50:08 Dimsler: i don't know a single non-american doctor who isn't miserable

04:50:08 mircea_popescu: bounce name one.

04:50:24 mircea_popescu: Dimsler i know plenty.

04:50:36 decimation: as the link I put up yesterday explained, most doctors did more to hurt than heal before 1900, the 'talented amateur' was the local nurse lady who would try to keep you comfortable

04:50:39 bounce: pfft. too early to do the research.

04:50:59 mircea_popescu: bounce then allow me to use this opportunity to expose before your eyes your own automatism.

04:51:04 mircea_popescu: what other places is it operant ?

04:51:08 Dimsler: problem with being a scientifist in todays modern age is you aren't working from home

04:51:25 Dimsler: you're stuck in academia

04:51:28 mircea_popescu: decimation dubious theory, but anyway.

04:51:41 Dimsler: very dubious

04:52:00 mircea_popescu: generally the problem is that people ascribe the benefits of santiation to medicine. this is false.

04:52:13 mircea_popescu: actual doctors today are about as hacky/harmful as they were cca 1714.

04:52:20 Dimsler: correct

04:52:22 mircea_popescu: mostly because the problem they face is so complex.

04:52:52 Duffer1: speaking of dr, that coffee was a big hit, thanks for the suggestion MP

04:52:58 decimation: yeah I would say that's probably true in most cases

04:53:05 mircea_popescu: Duffer1 cheers.

04:53:15 Dimsler: which coffee?

04:53:25 decimation: until someone can give an engineering-level account of the human body and all its processes, it's gonna stay that way

04:53:34 Duffer1: nurse gifts, 3lbs of primo coffee per shift

04:53:50 Duffer1: and for dr

04:53:53 mircea_popescu: decimation you can appreciate the shittyness of it, right ? suppose you were given the task of fixing code you may not read running on a one of a kind processor you don't even have the spec for.

04:54:07 mircea_popescu: and then blamed you for the results, but praised "nature" for the success.

04:54:26 decimation: yeah, it's a delicate microstructure and your tools are basically 'hammer' and 'sledge'

04:54:49 Dimsler: well i mean todays operations are much much cleaner

04:54:56 mircea_popescu: OR you could pour yogurt over it and see

04:55:02 mircea_popescu: THREE!!! three choices!

04:57:00 asciilifeform: problem of definitions.

04:57:06 asciilifeform: 'doctor' is - cleanup crew.

04:57:09 mircea_popescu: aren;t they all.

04:57:18 asciilifeform: example. say room-temperature supercons appear.

04:57:45 asciilifeform: then everyone with some money can scan himself when he wakes up, right after toilet, for malignant growths.

04:58:01 asciilifeform: say +10 lifespan, whatever. who gets credit?

04:58:03 asciilifeform: doctors? nope

04:58:12 asciilifeform: similar to sanitation example.

04:58:48 decimation: asciilifeform: the scanner would have to see down the molecules to determine malignancy in-situ

04:58:59 mircea_popescu: i doubt malignancies are the main problem. i think the main problem of medicine today is still metabolism

04:59:10 mircea_popescu: mirroring exactly the situation in the times of mr h.

04:59:10 asciilifeform: decimation: not necessarily. just monitor for out-of-place masses, would go a long way.

04:59:17 asciilifeform: consider, elsewhere:

04:59:22 mircea_popescu: three thousand years and uncountable changes in everything later.

04:59:37 asciilifeform: firemen get (and deserve) no credit for the relative incombustibility of modern dwellings compared to those of the past.

04:59:49 Dimsler: lol the past?

04:59:52 Dimsler: you mean like

04:59:56 Dimsler: concrete?

04:59:58 asciilifeform: pre-concrete

05:00:04 mircea_popescu: actually... i think us houses are the most combustible things ever in the history of dwellings.

05:00:06 Dimsler: there was firemen pre-concrete?

05:00:11 asciilifeform: (if you must, old japan vs. current)

05:00:17 mircea_popescu: Dimsler firemen have as much history as the french.

05:00:20 Dimsler: yeah like the combustable house and obsession with firemen is a north american thing

05:00:30 decimation: well, loads of bureaucrats have been harassing people to spray various dubious fireproofing chemicals on everything

05:00:35 asciilifeform: Dimsler: nope. in japan, far greater obsession even.

05:00:46 mircea_popescu: yeah but in japan they have cause.

05:00:53 Dimsler: yeah i know

05:00:53 asciilifeform: paper houses. just like present-day usa.

05:01:15 asciilifeform: poor countries are much alike.

05:01:21 mircea_popescu: problem i nthe usa isn't as much the per se combustibility, more like, all the evil shit sandwiched in there

05:01:30 mircea_popescu: fumes will kill you before the fire even warms you a little

05:02:07 Dimsler: so canucky in here

05:02:35 bounce: so newton, leibniz, van leeuwenhoek all held convenient government positions. not quite getting paid for science directly, but not quite independently wealthy either

05:02:43 mircea_popescu: bounce lord newton ?

05:02:49 mircea_popescu: you have got to be kidding me, srsly.

05:02:49 decimation: 'government' was quite a different thing then though

05:03:06 mircea_popescu: a wealthy lord with a de jure mp seat ?

05:03:08 asciilifeform: 'independent' here just means you're funded via something other than science-as-day-job

05:07:11 mircea_popescu: btw, since he got mentioned : newton ended up the author of the gold standard in the western world.

05:44:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform in romanian, vershook, fershtook = fubar.

05:47:39 decimation: pediwiki: The term relay rack appeared first in the world of telephony.[2] By 1911, the term was also being used in railroad signaling.[3] There is little evidence that the dimensions of these early racks were standardized. The 19-inch rack format with rack-units of 1.75 inches and holes tapped for 12-24 screws with alternating spacings of 1.25 inches and 0.5 inch was an established standard by 1934.[4] The EIA standard was revised

05:47:41 decimation: again in 1992 to comply with the 1988 public law 100-418, setting the standard U as 44.5mm (15.9mm + 15.9mm + 12.7mm), making each "U" officially 1.752 inches.[5] en.wikipedia.org/wiki/19-inch_rack

06:15:33 mircea_popescu: decimation why do you suppose banning immigration does anything ?

06:15:55 mircea_popescu: on what border ?

06:15:55 decimation: from selected states

06:16:03 decimation: heh good point

06:16:24 mircea_popescu: you could directly experiment with this idea. you could draw a line in your room, and ban all crossings of that line. see if it does anything for any variable you wish to measure.

06:16:55 mircea_popescu: i imagine at best it'd to nothing perceptible, if you choose the line well.

06:17:12 mircea_popescu: but otherwise it can become a major pain.

06:26:30 mircea_popescu: much like love ain't available to the same populace.

06:27:28 decimation: My language was imprecise: I meant that that he would be the object of common hatred

06:27:37 decimation: or at least common derision

06:28:15 mircea_popescu: i doubt he's all that stable. he doesn't look it in any case.

06:28:40 mircea_popescu: "Mayo noted that Frazier Glenn Miller, who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups, ran for the U.S. Senate in Missouri in 2010. He was charged this year in the shooting deaths of a 14-year-old boy and his grandfather outside an Overland Park, Kan., Jewish community center."

06:28:49 mircea_popescu: lol these obnoxious pests.

06:29:04 mircea_popescu: im sure there's no libtard that ever killed anyone. o.O

06:29:42 decimation: heh when a libtard kills someone it's just because he's crazy, not for any political reason

06:30:26 mircea_popescu: well... there's a lot of merit in that. how else could his alleged "political" oppinions be explained.

06:31:36 decimation: I guess my point is that the media likes to trump up the crazy nazi kkk guy when there were 415 murders in chicago last year

06:32:15 thestringpuller: d0000d

06:32:25 decimation: and 33,561 traffic deaths (in the us)

06:32:33 mircea_popescu: if it makes you feel any better, the media does the same here. there were i dunno, like five murders in a 20mn pop town.

06:32:48 mircea_popescu: that's what, 5x la

06:33:32 decimation: if the average us guy even knows where south america is, he perceives the cities as basically gigantic barrios with constant death

06:34:14 mircea_popescu: they are gigantic barrios, but the only constant is fucking.

06:35:24 decimation: reading the wikipedia I'm surprised to find that argentina is basically 80-90% european

06:39:27 mircea_popescu: what's the value add, cumrag ?

06:42:26 mircea_popescu: did i miss a crucial something here ?

06:42:43 mircea_popescu: it's like a retard kid who gets told off by his imagined gf, goes away, turns around and starts over

06:43:20 decimation: I imagine that most countries perceive the us as a 300 pound giant with the brains of a 12 year old boy

06:43:42 decimation: can be really dangerous if you line yourself up in his sights, but really easy to manipulate

06:43:47 pete_dushenski_: decimation: was 300 10 years ago, now 225.

06:44:07 mircea_popescu: yeah, something like that. i think they mostly perceive it as a combined fuckhole/shithole/eatery

06:44:13 decimation: there's no doubt that there's a gap between 'strength on paper' and 'actual strength, if actually tested'

06:44:25 mircea_popescu: which is kinda perverse.

06:44:29 pete_dushenski_: and can therefore be subdued by a lean 140 pounder.

06:44:44 decimation: or a 100 lb girl with the right charms

06:44:48 pete_dushenski_: "i know kung fu" and shit.

06:44:50 mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski_ depends where. not for as long as stays safely behind her keyboard.

06:45:04 mircea_popescu: or joystick as the case may be

06:45:47 decimation: on the other hand, the romans spent centuries trying to conquer the middle east

06:45:54 decimation: why should the powers of today have it any other way

06:46:57 mircea_popescu: the greeks spent two years, and got all the way to indioa

06:47:08 mircea_popescu: i have my doubts whether the romans ever were interested in conquest.

06:47:20 mircea_popescu: they kept trying to smash the persian empire, which they mostly managed, more or less.

06:48:05 mircea_popescu: in the middle east ?

06:48:54 decimation: sure, being governor over there was a stepping stone to power at times

06:50:06 mircea_popescu: well being a (military) governor, sure. but generally the patricians held land in latium, then in italia, then in galia n, and then finally in spain, thracia, whatever.

06:50:19 mircea_popescu: not really illyricum or asia minor

08:24:45 BingoBoingo: This year as everything has been parlays not much success. Two weeks ago I had a chance at least. Last week I made a suicide slate and attached a point about phantom mining hardware.

08:25:00 BingoBoingo: Mississippi State is indeed scary this year.

08:25:29 RagnarDanneskjol: oh yea. phantom hardware? - I missed that

08:25:47 RagnarDanneskjol: Oh gaw?

08:26:33 BingoBoingo: Yeah

08:26:49 RagnarDanneskjol: ok saw that

08:29:25 BingoBoingo: I mean last week I put Illinois over Nebraska.

08:29:44 RagnarDanneskjol: ahh

08:30:24 BingoBoingo: Mizzou scares in that after the way the SEC championship game ended last year they still have no defense against the ground game.

08:32:06 RagnarDanneskjol: i forget, were runs getting through the D line or is breakdown in the backfield.. or both

08:33:44 BingoBoingo: RagnarDanneskjol: Both. The Runningbacks almost always find a way around the line if they have any speed and in the backfield the people with speed to catch up to them lack the mass to take them down efficiently

08:34:38 RagnarDanneskjol: yea, thats a problem hard to fix

12:27:46 assbot: Logged on 02-10-2014 00:40:23; RagnarDanneskjol: bounce - what's the prollem with recruiters? I always wonder about these devs who are too rich, famous/in demand to even find out how much more $ another company will pay them to be lazy

12:28:16 bounce: bit of an unfair question there.

12:28:23 RagnarDanneskjol: i kno

12:29:04 bounce: not the smartest way to get a useful answer

12:42:20 ben_vulpes: RagnarDanneskjol: many devs respond to a few here and there, but the random sample is typically not enough cash, bizarre stacks, crazy mgmt or {google,yahoo,ms} again instead of anything interesting. a few interactions like this and the dev is poisoned against recruiters forever.

12:46:43 bounce: don't forget the completely dysfunctional and often insane "matching", selecting on completely irrelevant criteria, and obvious, screaming lies by the bucketload.

12:48:44 RagnarDanneskjol: ok. this is like having a bad experience with a front desk secretary and holding it against every secretary you ever encounter. Recruiters are just doing the work of sorting and moving candidates through the interview process. How else would you ever get another job? at some point everyone has to deal with a recruiter (or whoever acts as company recruiter/hr generalist) -otherwise st

12:48:45 RagnarDanneskjol: ay unemployed

12:49:20 RagnarDanneskjol: lies about what?

12:51:05 ben_vulpes: the notion that a person must go through a recruiter to get a job is utter nonsense.

12:51:31 RagnarDanneskjol: I think you misunderstand what a recruiter is (common misconception)

12:51:34 bounce: how else? by getting pulled in by someone, or by bumping into the (technically savvy) owner of the shop, something like that. the key is to talk to someone who knows about the job, not the "specialist" who doesn't know word from writer.

12:51:51 RagnarDanneskjol: they are often generalized as being staffing agencies

12:51:58 ben_vulpes: if you're growing a dev team and your devs aren't actively bringing in their friends, you're doing it entirely incorrectly.

12:52:23 RagnarDanneskjol: every company over 20 people has a staff recruiter who manages the interview/negotiation process

12:52:24 bounce: IME the staffing agencies that claim to specialise in IT recruiting are possibly worse than generic agencies. claim to know their shit then don't.

12:52:38 ben_vulpes: <RagnarDanneskjol> every company over 20 people has a staff recruiter who manages the interview/negotiation process << false.

12:52:49 RagnarDanneskjol: yea - you are getting staffing agencies confused w/ recruiters

12:52:59 ben_vulpes: in an engineering organization, this is an engineering function for engineering roles.

12:53:46 RagnarDanneskjol: so who identifies candidates?

12:54:09 bounce: somebody who knows about the job.

12:54:30 RagnarDanneskjol: so the hiring manager does recruitment - bad policy

12:54:30 ben_vulpes: anyone receiving emails on the "get in touch with us" inbox

12:54:41 ben_vulpes: what? why?

12:54:48 ben_vulpes: so you can shoehorn yourself in?

12:54:59 RagnarDanneskjol: Oh so the company only hires candidates who happen to find their open position - bad policy

12:55:21 RagnarDanneskjol: guaranteed to have a weak workforce

12:55:46 bounce: pfft. instead of some consultancy throwing out the adverts and pouring their "special sauce" over the incoming applications?

12:55:50 ben_vulpes: maybe for bigcorp.

12:56:06 bounce: IMO that's a worse policy, since it muddles the input needlessly

12:56:11 RagnarDanneskjol: again - that is a staffing agency - different and I agree they are wasteful

12:56:11 ben_vulpes: for companies with reputations for quality, it's not nearly as guaranteed as you claim.

12:56:24 ben_vulpes: spamgun, anyone?

12:57:23 ben_vulpes: you're also ignoring the "whole team does recruiting" strategy.

12:57:40 RagnarDanneskjol: you understand how it makes sense to have someone dedicated to locating the best talent available is bettter than hoping talent finds you?

12:58:05 bounce: does it?

12:58:15 *: bounce refers to the google study on a related subject

12:58:17 ben_vulpes: i don't hope, i plan and execute.

12:58:45 ben_vulpes: we identify target hires as a group and then fucking hire them.

12:59:06 ben_vulpes: we also chew through contractors, looking for people to hire.

12:59:08 RagnarDanneskjol: how do you locate them? its a full time job

12:59:42 ben_vulpes: i network my ass off

12:59:47 RagnarDanneskjol: so hiring managers put in a bunch of extra overtime to do recruitment

12:59:49 ben_vulpes: (in support of sales *and* recruitment)

12:59:58 RagnarDanneskjol: instead of having a professional do it

13:00:03 ben_vulpes: not overtime

13:00:16 ben_vulpes: tis a part of the job, identifying and bringing on collaborators.

13:00:58 ben_vulpes: maybe someday i'll outsource leadgen, but i've yet to find anyone to trust with the job because they all sound as full of shit as you.

13:01:26 RagnarDanneskjol: how is that?

13:01:27 ben_vulpes: finding people who can do sales lead gen is hard enough, how the fuck am i to trust someone whose technical competence i have no notion of to identify people with technical talent?

13:01:42 RagnarDanneskjol: you intervieeww them

13:02:07 ben_vulpes: typically the interview is aborted by pitches like yours.

13:02:19 RagnarDanneskjol: I'm not pitching anyone

13:02:31 RagnarDanneskjol: just trying to dispel misconceptions

13:02:37 bounce: HR can take care of the paperwork, and "managing" appointments and such. but building the team is up to the manager, not to the recruiter.

13:02:56 ben_vulpes: does the recruiter then interview my team as well?

13:03:25 Azelphur: ben_vulpes: he must be somewhat good at spotting talent, he hired me ;)

13:03:35 ben_vulpes: Azelphur: you stand out.

13:03:35 bounce: debatable *rimshot*

13:04:50 ben_vulpes: what about the first kid he trotted through here?

13:05:29 RagnarDanneskjol: how does a manager locate talent? i still don't understand. it is a full-time job sourcing for any given position.. doing a thourough targeted search. unless the job reqs are fairly loose.

13:06:11 RagnarDanneskjol: some of the jobs I place only have a few dozen qualified ppl on the planet - they take months to locate

13:06:48 ben_vulpes: must be why you want a fancy database of resumes and positions

19:44:12 BingoBoingo: bounce may be on to something

19:44:56 thickasthieves: yes and all browsers should be magical automatic display handlers and websites only databases

19:45:54 BingoBoingo: Well actually yes browsers should handle the display rather than the site.

19:46:15 bounce: that was the idea, originally. then web"design" happened.

19:46:17 thickasthieves: and all people should be the same

19:46:18 BingoBoingo: Websites shouldn't default to violently raping user hardware

19:46:32 thickasthieves: and all emotion removed from all things

19:46:37 thickasthieves: so we can math our lives away

19:46:38 BingoBoingo: thickasthieves: No, people get to dress up the websites however the wish

19:46:40 bounce: that is the current assumption: hipster with tablet

19:47:15 BingoBoingo: Plenty of ways to do custom CSS with pink and kittens and myspace

19:47:15 thickasthieves: people dont want to dress up websites

19:47:18 bounce: in fact, it rarely happens but could provide multiple layouts for the onlooker to choose

19:48:16 thickasthieves: i understand that a spec for website data would be convenient and provide ease and cleanliness from one perspective

19:48:24 bounce: this about that giant screenshot with two panes on either side and lots of nothing inbetween?

19:48:27 thickasthieves: it's just an impossible ideal for one paradigm

19:49:27 thickasthieves: all computers should use the same hw spec and everyone should program in the same language and use the same db sesign too

19:49:29 bounce: meh. most often all sorts of unwarranted assumptions creep in; web"design" does tent to focus on one thing and massively over-engineers with gratuitous js-reinvention of basic stuff to make it look "nicer"

19:49:56 BingoBoingo: I don't think the current super mininum style is going to be a permanent feature on qntra, but... page load times are a thing. Got to plan for people accessing the internet using dialup through a payphone.

19:50:03 thickasthieves: i'm not saying many websites arent ridiculous

19:50:12 thickasthieves: i'm saying both extremes are

19:50:17 *: punkman remembers the derps trying to do webfonts before we had webfonts

19:51:09 bounce: in this case it might be more useful to not stick one pane on the right and another on the left hand side, but position them relative to each other instead

19:52:00 bounce: or let the browser put them next or below each other, depending on actual window width.

19:52:50 thickasthieves: the problem is you cant get browsers to fall in line to that kinda thing

19:53:06 thickasthieves: ie microshit everything displaying diff

19:53:32 bounce: you'd have to release the notion of getting an identical picture everywhere. you're not serving up "an experience" or "a picture" or whatever, you're serving up content.

19:53:54 thickasthieves: most people arent though

19:54:02 thickasthieves: they are serving up advertising

19:54:05 thickasthieves: products

19:54:06 thickasthieves: etc

19:54:15 thickasthieves: brands

19:54:15 bounce: though I'd be perfectly willing to ignore any and all redmond products regardless of reported usage percentages, they just don't play well with others

19:59:20 thickasthieves: btce price is $14 below others
