18:21:43 funkenstein_: Well yeah if human rights laws get in the way of protecting human rights, this is a problem. It's called regulatory capture.

18:26:19 funkenstein_: I'm going back through Buckminster Fuller's mega classic "operator's manual for spaceship earth"

18:27:35 pankkake: I didn't know they died

18:27:51 funkenstein_: it's been several days now

18:28:10 *: asciilifeform uses http://flibusta.is

18:28:10 assbot: Флибуста | Книжное братство ... ( http://bit.ly/2rC9OFz )

18:28:45 funkenstein_: i2p site?

18:29:01 asciilifeform: most of it is visible via plain www

18:30:42 funkenstein_: well we need a decentralized solution

18:30:58 pankkake: there's a private tracker for ebooks but I haven't contributed enough to have invites

18:31:00 asciilifeform: mirror things !

18:31:15 asciilifeform: 'save yourself and others around you will be saved' (tm)(r)(ru church)

18:33:07 funkenstein_: Alexandra Elbakyan can't hold the world on her shoulders forever

18:35:10 funkenstein_: anybody research lbry at all?

18:35:20 asciilifeform: me.

18:35:26 funkenstein_: any good?

18:35:32 asciilifeform: or wait

18:35:43 funkenstein_: sorry i should be clear https://lbry.io/get

18:35:45 assbot: Get LBRY ... ( http://bit.ly/2rBUgl2 )

18:35:45 asciilifeform: i thought q was re conventional meat libraries.

18:36:47 asciilifeform: then no, never seen before.

18:37:04 asciilifeform: looks like a premined alt cum warez.

18:37:16 asciilifeform: doesn't sound esp. decentralized.

18:38:04 asciilifeform: 'LBRY Inc. has reserved 10% of all LBRY credits to fund continued development and provide profit for the founders. '

18:38:08 asciilifeform: ( https://lbry.io/faq/lbry-revenue )

18:38:09 assbot: How does the company behind LBRY make money? ... ( http://bit.ly/2rBETJq )

18:40:16 funkenstein_: hmm yeah not the most inspiring start

18:43:11 funkenstein_: its not really clear to me how they plan to store the content

18:43:22 funkenstein_: looks like a namecoin kind of thing

18:43:48 asciilifeform: it's a classic 'kickstarter scam' item -- the details of making-it-work do not get much thought, because entire thing is a mousetrap, not a restaurant

18:44:30 funkenstein_: perhaps some well meaning folx can get in there and do something

18:44:43 asciilifeform: mousetraps are not convertible into restaurants.

18:44:55 funkenstein_: yeah starting from scratch is looking tempting here

18:45:03 asciilifeform: they do, however, extract coin from gullible 'well meaning folx' very, very well.

18:57:30 funkenstein_: well if we start hearing copyrasts complain about it, we'll know it's the real deal

18:58:29 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: interestingly, i find that the amule network still worx and contains many good scans

19:00:24 funkenstein_: nice, what is it almost 20 years now?

19:00:40 funkenstein_: edonkey2000

19:01:11 asciilifeform: i use 'amule' client

19:01:18 asciilifeform: never even saw the original

19:11:23 pankkake: I used ed2k, then e2dk+weird hacks, then eMule, then many eMule mods, then iMule, then aMule

19:11:38 pankkake: still launch it sometimes

19:13:23 asciilifeform: if what you're looking for is a thing of interest to half dozen people -- whether it's a b&w scan of very old military textbook, or a copy of Tru64 -- amule, if anywhere, is where you'll find it

19:13:28 pankkake: https://i.imgur.com/phvNSeV.png - but most people don't care enough to share back

19:13:29 assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/2r708zk )

19:14:13 funkenstein_: amule + KAD has a lot of users in china it looks like

19:14:26 asciilifeform: gotta dispense with the expectation of instant gratification, pankkake . i've found that getting $item out of amule is a weeks, sometimes months-long affair.

19:14:53 asciilifeform: when that 1 user who actually has the thing, has his comp switched on...

19:14:58 funkenstein_: that's been my experience too

19:15:28 pankkake: I grew up with rtc modem internet, I was used to wait a week for a file :)
