00:00:07 mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete im just being an asshole.

00:00:08 kakobrekla: yeah.

00:00:14 BingoBoingo: https://twitter.com/susie_c/status/475100972004679681

00:00:16 assbot: New inbox filter for emails containing "New York," "coming to the Bay Area," "writing an article," "pick your brain" ---> auto-reply "NOPE."

00:00:23 benkay: no no, coinbr resolves to hookers

00:00:42 bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu: i've been had!

00:01:27 BingoBoingo: https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/475753463188430848

00:01:28 assbot: The dream of having computers behave like humans is coming true, with the transformation, in a single generation, of humans into computers.

00:01:39 BingoBoingo: ^ If only

00:01:43 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo the bestpart being that the susie chick is practically nobody anyway.

00:01:48 bitcoinpete: ;;later tell benkay shibboleeeet http://xkcd.com/806/

00:01:48 assbot: xkcd: Tech Support

00:01:48 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:02:31 mircea_popescu: bitcoingirl: i think Kraken and circle are the drivers of the operation << SV "Bitcoin" VCs are quickly becoming this place elephants go to die.

00:02:41 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The best part from he being a practical nobody is that there is a still lesser class such that even nobodies need autoresponders to dismiss them.

00:12:12 mircea_popescu: i had no idea they did that, moreover, pretty sure they didn't USE to do it.

00:12:13 thestringpuller: AMAZING

00:12:20 thestringpuller: amazing

00:12:20 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

00:12:33 mthreat: ^ that's what I was trying to do

00:12:36 mircea_popescu: anyway, this unearthed a bug in the credits script so you get double credit mthreat

00:12:41 mthreat: sweet

00:12:54 thestringpuller: hooray hooray!

00:12:58 thestringpuller: educate yo'selfs

00:13:36 mthreat: mircea_popescu: success

00:13:46 mircea_popescu: cool.

00:16:41 mircea_popescu: benkay: and the best question yet: why are any of these fuckers still making noise? << apparently, lack of any sort of conservation instinct.

00:17:13 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Maybe the problem is the uranium mines have been unveiled yet?

00:17:50 mircea_popescu: i guess.

00:17:59 kakobrekla: FabianB

00:18:04 kakobrekla: !mp book

00:18:05 assbot: http://dpaste.com/1F4E7FY.txt

00:18:10 kakobrekla: !mp ticker

00:18:11 assbot: http://dpaste.com/1GR13WW.txt

00:18:26 mircea_popescu: pretty cute.

00:19:09 BingoBoingo: I mean they've been hinted at, but some people probably won't believe until they are wearing an breathing aparatus and hoping it holds so the Radon doesn't asphyxiate them.

00:20:04 mircea_popescu: davout: yup, they're blessed with this situation where they have a financial entity backing them, but lets them do the kyc diligences themselves << dubious blessing.

00:20:42 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo so far, it'd seem the playbook of the vc twerp is, "1. eat as much conference rubber duck as possible ; 2. show trial ; 3. become usg informant"

00:21:34 mircea_popescu: in a few years it'll be practically speaking la serenissima vs a horde of mindless zombies controlled by the secretary of crypto, labour, housing, healthcare and other human services

00:21:41 mircea_popescu: it'll have a special crest with an eagle holding cocks.

00:22:06 BingoBoingo: Wasn't that the first draft of the S.NSA logo?

00:22:35 mircea_popescu: yeah. which explains it.

00:24:09 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18150 @ 0.00085415 = 15.5028 BTC [+] {3}

00:25:31 BingoBoingo: I'm guessing the first Secretary of crypto is probably going to be Jay-Z or Ashton Kutcher, because VC celibrities in the flea circus like to imagine celberities in the Hollywood circus care for them.

00:25:35 benkay: hey who wants to sell me a data center

00:25:37 mircea_popescu: pankkake: but you give them your name!! it must be true :) << actually this is how england worked, back when it was still a respectable country, up until the socialist revolution of the 80s.

00:25:47 mircea_popescu: if you gave your name, the policeman was not at liberty to doubt your word.

00:26:01 benkay: bitcoinpete: leet leet leet

00:26:03 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo nah, it'll be yet another famished dc lawyer.

00:26:19 bitcoinpete: benkay: :D

00:26:45 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Also a possibility.

00:27:18 mircea_popescu: by the way, whilke going through bsas' jewish quarter today it occured to me : what if the yamaka exists solelyto hide baldness ?

00:27:31 mircea_popescu: imagine, a whole people of men who don't have to worry about their thin spot anymore.

00:28:03 benkay: lol what did they start caring about their guts?

00:28:31 mircea_popescu: but there's a shawl too.

00:29:05 benkay: that's to display wealth with fabric, thread and dye, not to conceal the rotundity of being well-fed.

00:29:36 mircea_popescu: how you know.

00:29:41 benkay: leastaways that's how i've always read it. odds of me being wrong on a thing are like 9:1

00:29:50 benkay: grew up in it.

00:30:21 benkay: tallit's an important gift to the newly adultified.

00:30:46 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Generally in the US baseball caps are used to hide bald spots and thinning hair. I kind of though tthe concept was cribbed from the Jews.

00:31:10 mircea_popescu: benkay just sayin', you never know what the REAL purpose is.

00:31:19 benkay: sure ofc

00:31:26 mircea_popescu: that's the heart of all conspiracy

00:31:27 benkay: social conformity, 900 others, bla bla bla

00:33:39 mircea_popescu: !mpif

00:35:36 mircea_popescu: frankenmint: why couldnt i simply pass on the link directly to the cli << you could open the link in a browser and past the contents directly to the cli

00:35:44 mircea_popescu: or use some sort of pipes with wget to do this

00:39:41 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: <frankenmint> like if the market goes sideways then use arbitrage otherwise play swing trades < yes make it so if the market goes sideways then use arbitrage otherwise play swing trades << the humour of this has not been lost on me.

00:40:01 kakobrekla: :)

00:40:41 kakobrekla: dud.

00:41:03 mircea_popescu: no milk ;/

00:41:19 kakobrekla: aww

00:41:22 BingoBoingo: Aww

00:41:24 *: kakobrekla calls usagi

00:41:45 mircea_popescu: i think this may be scam ;/

00:42:01 kakobrekla: maybe he can dox milk for 0.1 btc

00:42:21 mircea_popescu: or ddos it from his home computer

00:42:57 BingoBoingo: ;;google site:bitcoin-assets.com risperidone milk

00:57:05 bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu benkay tallits also bulk up the shoulders nicely, hiding the kind of scrawniness that can only come with paper pushing

01:44:32 mircea_popescu: mike_c hey i wanna argue with you some more. you busy ?

01:47:31 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 37 @ 0.07377776 = 2.7298 BTC [+]

01:48:00 mike_c: fire away

01:48:16 mircea_popescu: so, are all your btc currently invested in like stocks and shit ?

01:48:29 mike_c: hm

01:48:47 mike_c: hypothetically what do you call panacea? that's not stock and shit

01:48:50 mircea_popescu: doesn't have to be the personal you. the theoretical you, as described by must always eat cake

01:48:57 mircea_popescu: ok, securities.

01:49:26 mike_c: theoretically JD isn't a security, it's bankrolling a casino.

01:49:39 mircea_popescu: it's a security (an adjusted debenture)

01:50:09 mike_c: ok. seems like a broad definition, but then yes, i suppose the theoritcal me is invested in securities.

01:50:37 mircea_popescu: 100% ?

01:50:53 BingoBoingo: Is uranium mine a security?

01:51:04 mike_c: to be clear (for the last time) we aren't talking about me, but what I would recommend.

01:51:05 BingoBoingo: And if so is it cake?

01:51:05 mircea_popescu: yourownership of it is.

01:51:14 mircea_popescu: mike_c your theoretical model.

01:51:25 mike_c: my theoritcal model would be 95% invested, yeas

01:51:28 mike_c: yeah

01:52:06 mircea_popescu: your theoretical model would be broke.

01:52:15 mike_c: it would disagree :D

01:52:37 mike_c: you mean it would be illiquid?

01:52:42 mircea_popescu: that shit where you're 95% invested at age 30 because whatever, you'll make more stiictly depends on fiat being paper.

01:53:03 mike_c: no, you're invested because no reason not to have your money out working for you

01:53:17 mircea_popescu: anyway, what i had in mind just got shot because i wasn't expecting you to be this reckless :D

01:53:22 mike_c: hehe

01:53:49 mike_c: why sit around with a huge cash balance that isn't growing when there are good investment opportunities?

01:53:50 mircea_popescu: can't fucking argue with you without a degree in mikeity.

01:54:05 mircea_popescu: i'lltell you why

01:54:40 mircea_popescu: ever heard of thierry de la villehuchet ?

01:54:44 mike_c: no

01:55:02 mircea_popescu: french aristocrat from a family that had been doing banking for centuries

01:55:03 mike_c: hm, a madoff investor

01:55:20 mircea_popescu: recently killed himself, over the net results of the wrong answer to that question

01:55:44 mike_c: lots of investors jump off buildings during every crisis cuz they are dumb.

01:56:36 mike_c: i'm not saying put 95% of your cash in pirate. or in a variety of investments that are all actually putting their money in pirate.

01:56:56 mircea_popescu: but can you know.

01:57:01 mike_c: yes.

01:57:09 mircea_popescu: which conveniently fixes the shotwound in my idea.

01:57:19 mike_c: heh. pleasure doing business.

01:57:39 mircea_popescu: the reason the theoretical you wants to buy "shitty" investments is that buying all the good investments and only those exposes you to a class risk

01:57:50 mircea_popescu: ie, they're not likely to be unrelated, whether you know this or not.

01:57:57 mircea_popescu: ie, they're all into pirate.

01:58:33 mike_c: JD is not actually running some elaborate fake movie on its site while secretly running a ponzi.

01:58:44 mircea_popescu: this is besides the point tho

01:58:50 mircea_popescu: human activity is bound in that it's run by humans.

01:59:21 mike_c: ok..

01:59:36 mike_c: so the class risk is that all BTC bizness could go belly up?

01:59:41 mike_c: like by some decree?

01:59:51 mike_c: i propose doog and kako would still return funds.

02:00:05 mircea_popescu: the class risk is that in general, all the fashionable stuff in any space tends to go belly up together a lot more than a "unrelated" model would seem to indicate.

02:00:26 mircea_popescu: and by fashionable i actually mean "good returns"

02:00:55 mike_c: so i should diversify into "bad returns". hmm..

02:02:07 BingoBoingo: Not necessarily bad returns, but... neutral returns like holding coin otherwise uninvested and other brussel sprouts.

02:02:29 mike_c: let's take a fiat example. warren invests in good companies with durable competitive advantages and global footprints. what's the class risk? he only invests in good companies?

02:03:50 mircea_popescu: the class risk is exactly that. he's now stuck derping about how "america will prevail"

02:04:07 mircea_popescu: i wouldn't want to be in his shoes. he's saved by old age, and by the fact that business cycles used to be slow.

02:04:11 mircea_popescu: this won't hold in the future.

02:04:38 mike_c: he owns lots of companies outside US, and the US companies sell more product outside america than inside. US could get wiped off map, and as long as Omaha was left standing he'd be ok.

02:05:03 mike_c: i wouldn't want to be him because he's trying to grow a capital base of $200B.

02:05:18 mike_c: plus he's 80-something

02:05:18 mircea_popescu: actually that's not particularly concerning, the size.

02:05:42 mircea_popescu: let me make this argument at you in a different vein.

02:06:06 dub: US could get wiped off map.. Inshallah

02:07:35 mike_c: i gotta pop off for 30 mins. back in a bit and will continue if you're still around.

02:08:44 mircea_popescu: aite.

02:09:19 thestringpuller: Why is Aurenheimer being a n00b?

02:09:21 *: benkay is on tenterhooks, goes back to the editor

02:09:28 thestringpuller: Guess he likes being a troll that much.

02:09:37 thestringpuller: all for the lulz

02:09:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19150 @ 0.00085274 = 16.33 BTC [+]

02:10:15 mircea_popescu: thestringpuller that'd be the best construction lol

02:13:57 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 3871 @ 0.00007001 = 0.271 BTC [-]

02:16:18 TheNewDeal: MP, so what's the magic number of % assets invested for us young guns

02:16:19 TheNewDeal: :D

02:17:00 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 12500 @ 0.00006099 = 0.7624 BTC [-] {9}

02:17:21 dub: 69%

02:19:09 mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal wait what ?

02:22:39 TheNewDeal: nice dub

02:23:06 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18750 @ 0.00085365 = 16.0059 BTC [+]

02:23:37 TheNewDeal: in reference to the mike_c 95% invested

02:23:44 TheNewDeal: whats the magic %age

02:24:32 mircea_popescu: well, you familiar with the kelly criterion ?

02:24:50 mike_c: i am of course.

02:25:22 mike_c: plus, i'm back.

02:26:16 mike_c: so, TheNewDeal: kelly says in the simple case (1:1 bet) to bet your edge.

02:26:35 mike_c: if you have a 5% edge, bet 5% of your bankroll

02:26:46 TheNewDeal: i just read your article about kelly the other day

02:26:54 mike_c: but it gets more complicated with odds and with multiple wagers/investments.

02:28:04 mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal now model a beting situation where you also have income

02:28:10 mircea_popescu: it'll skew the optimal towards more risk

02:28:19 mircea_popescu: the more a % of your stake the income is, the more risk you take.

02:28:32 mircea_popescu: mike_c ok so, back to our discussion

02:29:01 mircea_popescu: consider all you have is 100 btc, and jd offers you a shot at 200 btc. would you take the deal ?

02:29:16 mike_c: of course not

02:29:27 TheNewDeal: JD...

02:29:31 mike_c: justdice

02:29:38 TheNewDeal: i know

02:29:51 TheNewDeal: its a place to dump btc that you no longer wish to own

02:30:11 mike_c: mircea_popescu: and i mean of course not on the betting or investing side.

02:30:15 mircea_popescu: mike_c now, could we say that since you're proposed to either lose all your money or win 100 btc this deal isn't very good,

02:30:31 mircea_popescu: but if you were proposed to either lose all your btc or win all the btc there are, then it'd be a fine shot ?

02:31:08 mike_c: you mean 100 vs 20999900? then yes.

02:31:17 TheNewDeal: depending on the odds

02:32:54 TheNewDeal: but even your 2/3 chance of a 2X payout, kelly says to bet a fraction of your stake

02:33:02 mircea_popescu: mike_c now obviously as fair as this deal would be to you, it's still not particularly fair to jd.

02:33:13 mircea_popescu: in fact, the poorer you are, the further your fair deal is forsanity

02:33:28 mircea_popescu: EXCEPT if you're worth ~7 mn btc. then the deal is actually fair for both ends.

02:33:46 mike_c: fair but foolish, yes.

02:33:47 mircea_popescu: this is precisely why i said earlier 200bn isn't the concern. the bigger you grow, the more deals are exposed to you.

02:34:11 mike_c: not sure i give you that. different deals are exposed. some are removed.

02:34:18 mircea_popescu: none are removed.

02:34:32 mircea_popescu: as a hot guy you can still fuck all the ugly chicks you want

02:34:42 mircea_popescu: as a smart guy you can still say all thestupid shit you may want to say

02:34:54 mircea_popescu: the fact that you don't want to do it doesn't mean it's been removed.

02:35:15 mike_c: removed from the world of "profitable options"

02:35:49 mike_c: it is not profitalbe to spend my time making 50% on 2m instead of 2% on 100b.

02:36:19 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.07370061 = 0.1474 BTC [-]

02:37:23 mike_c: but, not to sidetrack if that wasn't the main point.

02:38:21 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.0727658 = 0.1455 BTC [-]

02:41:37 mircea_popescu: i don't follow this logic, even if it is a sidepoint

02:44:41 mike_c: only so much time in the day. it is unprofitable to spend it on endeavors that can't return a reasonable percentage on my enlarged capital base.

02:44:53 mircea_popescu: what's the percentage matter.

02:46:27 TheNewDeal: diversification maaan

02:46:48 mike_c: why would i expend effort on something that may significantly increase 1% of my base instead of something that will only moderately increase 20% of my base? it would be unprofitable.

02:47:07 mircea_popescu: to put it another way : behind door A there's a bacterium. in the proper agar it doubles every half minute. behind door B there's a naked buxom beauty. you can pick either door, the prize will be entirely yours to dispose as you please.

02:47:10 mircea_popescu: you're taking the bacterium ?

02:48:48 assbot: Last 2 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/2R06PDC.txt )

02:48:48 BingoBoingo: !b 2

02:48:50 mike_c: i am failing to map that metaphor onto our financial discussion.

02:48:52 punkman: aesthetics are important

02:49:47 BingoBoingo: Hauling trash can offer great returns, but it isn't very fun or glamorous.

02:49:53 mircea_popescu: mike_c well, there's this chain of pizzerias, which will be doubling each year for the next decade, yielding a bunch of pizzerias.

02:50:11 mircea_popescu: or, there's benkay's ocean mining conglomerate, which will gain 10% over the same decade

02:50:18 mircea_popescu: which 10% could buy about one trillion pizzerias.

02:50:19 mircea_popescu: which ?

02:50:33 mike_c: well, this is kind of my point.

02:50:51 mike_c: with a huge capital base you don't even consider the pizzerias

02:51:12 mike_c: wait

02:51:20 mircea_popescu: lol

02:51:34 assbot: [MPEX] [FT] [X.EUR] 1114 @ 0.00207449 = 2.311 BTC [-] {3}

02:52:04 mike_c: pizzeria = $100k. will double for 10 years yielding.. $100m

02:52:21 mike_c: with $200b in equity you ignore that shit.

02:52:27 mike_c: because it is a waste of yoru time.

02:52:32 mike_c: that opportunity is not yours.

02:52:43 mike_c: it is the opportunity of a lifetime for the guy with 100k.

02:52:43 mircea_popescu: it's a waste of everyone's time, just, others don't have the luxury to notice.

02:52:59 TheNewDeal: lol

02:53:01 mircea_popescu: like you know, a dribblet of cum i spilled on the floor is something my well sated slaves ignore

02:53:15 mircea_popescu: but would be the opportunity of a lifetime for a random girl off twitter.

02:53:54 mike_c: ok :) fine. so if you assume the people worth talking about all have an enlarged capital base, then we can scope the conversation to that.

02:54:01 mircea_popescu: this is why i introduced the bitcoin gambling thing. to point out that the world is a snowglobe whether you are big enough to notice or not.,

02:54:25 mircea_popescu: and in that context, a large capital base works you no harm.

02:57:05 mthreat: buffett talks about that a lot, e.g. from 1994: "Though there are as many good businesses as ever, it is useless for us to make purchases that are inconsequential in relation to Berkshire's capital. … We now consider a security for purchase only if we believe we can deploy at least $100 million in it. Given that minimum, Berkshire's investment universe has shrunk dramatically.

02:57:12 mthreat: "

02:57:18 mircea_popescu: sure.

02:57:42 mircea_popescu: he also says that he's not going to discuss his strategy given that it's valuable and easily replicated

02:57:49 mike_c: ok.. perhaps this will bring our lines of thought closer: in my theoretical model, someone with as much bitcoin as you should absolutely not be 95% invested.

02:57:56 mircea_popescu: soyou know, gotta take what the man says with a gtain of salt.

02:58:38 mircea_popescu: mike_c well amusingly enough i actually am holding tons of paper. just, it's to a large degree my own.

02:58:38 TheNewDeal: regardless, Buffet's capital is how many times greater than most people?

02:59:42 mircea_popescu: which brings us to the problem : because bitcoin is fixed, a 95% investment situation will be unavoidable statistically. as the value of all paper will much exceed the value of cash btc available, willy-nilly.

02:59:55 mircea_popescu: and so everyone will be quite invested.

03:00:14 mircea_popescu: which is why the stability of the investment universe is actually drastically more important for bitcoin than for fiat.

03:01:28 mike_c: and "cash" will still be king :)

03:04:41 TheNewDeal: MP i've got a question about reported results for btc companies

03:04:59 mike_c: although mp has proposed that ballers swap shares of mpoe like it's cash. which is interesting.

03:05:10 TheNewDeal: specifically, why doesn't bitbet have a report like "bets pending, resolved, gain, etc"

03:05:16 TheNewDeal: like when I look up my betting address

03:05:58 TheNewDeal: the way they report it now - with bets made taken as a windfall, and bets resolved as a gain, kind of hides their results of their bets

03:06:28 mike_c: catch you guys tomorrow.

09:09:24 pankkake: they're already feeding a large chunk of the population with antidepressants

09:11:33 FabianB: kakobrekla: thanks, works great :)

09:14:38 Namworld: I was more hinting about technology eventually reaching brain control chip level and the technology being applied to everyone. Because let's face it 1. The brain is mechanical 2. You can control just about any sort of machine given the time to develop the approriate tools 3. Someone at some point in time will try to get it installed on everyone for selfish purposes.

09:16:29 pankkake: well, that's the next step

09:17:54 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 5410 @ 0.0008472 = 4.5834 BTC [+]

09:20:36 Namworld: Eh, misuse of new technologies for the purpose of enslavement is nothing new.

09:21:59 jurov: the brain is not "mechanical" in contemporary technology sense. it's wetware with myriads of interlocking electrochemical processes

09:24:06 Namworld: Yes, I didn't mean mechanical in that fashion. More that chemical reactions are akin to machines. Although I guess it's not good practice to speak casually like that.

09:25:26 jurov: do we really have such machines? i don't think so

09:26:38 punkman: the technology of the demagogue is as old as dirt, who needs brain-controlling computars

09:27:05 jurov: even neural network simulators were found to have weakness - researchers were able to imperceptibly (to humans) change the samples which the neural networks miscategorized

09:28:37 jurov: punkman can post-traumatic depression be cured by demagogy?

09:29:11 Namworld: I never said we were there yet. The brain is extremely complex. So many molecules of all kinds, complex structures.

09:29:51 punkman: jurov, I'd guess it can

09:31:53 Namworld: Simulating/scanning a live one properly and actually controlling thoughts through simulations and predictions of inputs effects would probably require computing power and an amount of energy that just isn't realistically feasible for centuries.

09:33:58 punkman: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2022822

09:33:59 assbot: Tailspotting: Identifying and Profiting from CEO Vacation Trips by David Yermack :: SSRN

09:34:08 Namworld: But given the time to get the tools to do it, it's not unrealistic. It falls under the current known laws of physics.

09:39:48 Namworld: Unlike other things like wormholes and FTL through space compression, which are not yet falling within certain laws of physics and aren't thought to be likely. The conditions needed to make that happen are huge and uncertain.

09:39:54 jurov: well.. that's such positivist statment

09:40:12 jurov: tell me, what will mpoe trade for next month?

09:40:35 jurov: that falls under laws of physics, too :D

09:40:50 Namworld: We'll probably have brain control chips before we can get outside the solar system, assuming we're not wiped out by some cataclysmic event first.

09:41:44 Namworld: Well, I guess, but to predict that accurately, wouldn't I need to accurately simulate all brains in the world, including the Earth and all stellar input that affect those brains?

09:41:44 xmj: solar flares?

09:42:50 jurov: what if brain activity gets proven to be incomputable?

09:43:06 Namworld: Which is even worse.... when it comes to finances, we have experience of what works and doesn't, what's good signs and doesn't, and guesstimating

09:43:19 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 27477 @ 0.00085276 = 23.4313 BTC [+]

09:43:26 Namworld: Well I'd be a bit surprised, but yes. That's always possible.

09:44:00 jurov: what's surprising?

09:44:57 jurov: even most 100-byte asm programs can't be determined whether they'll eventually finish and how

09:45:15 jurov: but hooray, let's simulate billions of neurons

09:45:50 jurov: brb

09:46:26 punkman: I have a working reddit brain simulator

09:46:34 Namworld: It's a very small amount of matter compared to the universe. I'd assume we can refine technology close enough to simulate it accurately, or almost, given the resources out there.

09:46:37 punkman: it only ever outputs "lol" though

09:48:20 Namworld: I'm sure if you could simulate the whole of the system running your 100-byte asm programs, you'd be able to determine when it would eventually finish.

09:48:55 Namworld: It's really about simulating a complete system of interacting atoms.

09:52:08 Namworld: But enough distant future hypothetical scenarios, it's not like it has any usefulness, other than maybe entertaining oneself.

09:52:22 Namworld: It's 5:50 am, I need sleep, and I'm vastly out of topic for this channel I think, mostly rambling and talking to myself.

09:54:09 Namworld: So goodnight everyone, I'll go before I spout out too much more nonsense.

18:16:49 mike_c: yeah

18:17:28 jurov: mircea_popescu: that was 7 or so years ago, google worked as advertised then

18:17:42 mircea_popescu: hehehe

18:18:01 mircea_popescu: anyway, the dunne thing, what about it dignork ? guy was briefly here about that time

18:18:02 dignork: so you have oracle bot that can be hacked/bribed w.e, but if you have multiple, it's assumed to be harder to do

18:18:26 dignork: dunne is a dev of multibet

18:18:41 mircea_popescu: "Second set of drafts coming through tomorrow. Seen a little preview, already looking very sharp. After that, we refine and then program. Looking good for the one month ETA"

18:18:47 mircea_popescu: he's also stuck in the wrong paradigm.

18:18:53 mircea_popescu: bitcoin isn't web"dev".

18:20:03 mircea_popescu: pankkake: as well as litecoin.foundation. fuckers << dude who the fuck cares.

18:20:10 dignork: mircea_popescu: they open sourced their current code in git, assuming free security reviews, stopped watchig after that

18:20:20 mircea_popescu: a decade back they introduced .ro, ie, for romania. i laughed at them then, i'm still laughi8ng at them

18:20:28 mircea_popescu: "o no but you must get a romania tld". why ?

18:20:31 mike_c: dignork: but then you trusting the crowd of oracles to make the right decision. see rota for examples of that not working so well.

18:21:27 mircea_popescu: fluffypony: l.o.l. << don't do something merely stupid. do something spectacularly stupid instead!!! and don't even mention the actually sane alternative, that's gonna hurt your feelings so it doesn't exist.

18:22:38 dignork: mike_c: i think it's possible to make a multisig fund, where each oracle op drops some funds, these funds are deal insurance, but I didn't think it through completely

18:23:16 dignork: say they'll be redemed in case of detacted fraud

18:23:22 mike_c: it probably has good uses, but i wouldn't like bitbets decided by a vote.

18:23:23 dignork: *detected

18:23:34 mike_c: i'm not worried about fraud, more like bad decisions.

18:23:47 mircea_popescu: mike_c: idk, i'm not in the 'everything should be free' camp. << but the camp is "nothing should be amazon"

18:24:26 pankkake: I like Amazon for delivering physical items, they do it very well

18:24:46 mircea_popescu: nubbins`: y'know, i think bitcoin has actually soured my opinion of the concept of an "idea" << actual business experience in the company of actual business people has soured you on infantile bullcrap. neither bitcoin nor ideas particularly involved.

18:24:55 punkman: I think if bitbet provided an oracle service that might be handy for building things on, but I'm not about to trust some random dude's oracle

18:25:01 mircea_popescu: pankkake yeah. "nothing virtual shjould be amazon"

18:25:12 dignork: mike_c: maybe only subset of bets, which can be automatically verified, these bets are submitted without review, less work for bitbet op, more monies for turnover

18:25:18 mircea_popescu: punkman oracle service cost is unbound is the problem.

18:25:56 punkman: mircea_popescu: why?

18:29:40 punkman: if there's interest, you can also provide answers to things that aren't worth betting on

18:29:40 mircea_popescu: what's that help ?

18:30:02 mircea_popescu: that's ok, question that aren';t worth betting on aren't worth answering.

18:30:20 mircea_popescu: and anyone can trivially be charged a fee for finding out when x bet resolves : he sends a bet to a virgin address

18:30:28 mircea_popescu: when btc makes it to that address the bet resolved.

18:36:57 punkman: ;;later tell mircea_popescu a silly example, me and dignork both make a 1btc transaction to each other, but we can only spend them after the bitbet oracle signs the transaction

18:36:57 gribble: The operation succeeded.

19:02:17 mircea_popescu: the advantage of making both "in the same batch" is quite unclear, not like you'd be stuck with batches of like, 3 full and 7 1/4s

19:02:38 mircea_popescu: as large as your batch can conceivably be, you'll sell it, either full or quarter.

19:02:44 mircea_popescu: !up hdbuck

19:03:04 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: advantage of making both in same batch -> you do it whether you want to or not. process yield.

19:03:22 mircea_popescu: at any rate, silicon on insulator, and especially on 28nm, is ANYTHING but low cost.

19:03:34 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that too.

19:04:18 mircea_popescu: Namworld anyway, ask them if they use saphire or not. the answer will be informative.

19:09:25 Namworld: Eheheh, I was looking at that part on wikipedia, reading up on FDSOI. Wondering what's the point of it if it's an expensive process.

19:10:33 hdbuck: mircea_popescu hello MP, thx for the voice up, i came here with the hope you could help me apprehend that blockchain size issue (& considering it is an issue). been reading tons of articles about that and people talks about 'industrial' supernodes and/or 'restructuring' Bitcoin.. cant make up my mind whether thats good or bad tho. any inputs? :)

19:10:34 Namworld: Seems it has uses in compact electronics. For Bitcoin mining, you don't need compact performance, space is cheap.

19:11:18 Namworld: Ah, I see the part about Sapphire. The answer would be informative indeed.

19:12:19 benkay: hdbuck: if you can't afford the space to store the blockchain, what are you doing in btc anyways?

19:12:34 benkay: hdbuck: there's also SPV, but I'm not entirely certain how that actually works.

19:12:39 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 13 @ 0.07176763 = 0.933 BTC [-] {2}

19:13:19 hdbuck: benkay its not my personnal storing that i am concerned with. i am just wondering if this issue wont harm bitcoin on the long run.

19:13:26 Namworld: The blockchain ain't all that big yet...

19:16:11 hdbuck: saw pretty pessimistic articles about that matter regarding the long run of Bitcoin. plus those core devs seem not to have a clue about what's going to happen - so i figured.. you guys should know better! ^^

19:16:15 diametric: I have to admit, its annoying getting a fresh copy of the blockchain in a new client, even though I have the space, and I have 75Mbit internet, it still takes over 2 days.

19:16:41 benkay: hdbuck: how can you hurt bitcoin?

19:16:43 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 47100 @ 0.00085606 = 40.3204 BTC [+] {2}

19:16:44 diametric: though I've never tried any of the bootstrap methods

19:16:56 benkay: it simply exists.

19:17:16 benkay: blockchain monotonically increases in size. this is a fact of reality.

19:18:00 Namworld: Well assuming storage capacity keeps increasing at current rate, and that population growth is doubling much less often than computing capacity...

19:22:27 hdbuck: benkay : well, some argue that the more the blochain size increase, the less people would actually download it to use bitcoins. other also argue that it would give more power to supernodes, centralising bitcoin, which was something that bitcoin was suppose to oppose. or is it just the NSA and co that will run Bitcoin once it get too big? ^^

19:22:46 Namworld: It might be a problem for a short while. Assuming we reach saturation of usage, it might grow almost linearly, at least compared to storage capacity growth. Even if population growth and associated usage is exponential, the exponent is much lower than storage growth.

19:23:48 benkay: <hdbuck> benkay : well, some argue that the more the blochain size increase, the less people would actually download it to use bitcoins // you're conflating "fewer people using btc" with "bad for btc". this has yet to be established.

19:23:59 Namworld: I'm somewhat expecting the blockchain size to eventually become negligible.

19:25:20 Namworld: The thing is current adoption rate is increasing much faster than storage capacity, so it's catching up and becoming large in today's standards.

19:27:13 hdbuck: benkay: ah i know you guys think of it as gold 2.0 which is not meant for the average joe to come around with but i am just not sure how this will all play out. :/

19:27:32 benkay: hdbuck: are you ignoring the SPV thing?

19:27:41 benkay: you don't need a blockchain to accept/send btc.

19:28:07 Namworld: Blockchain is 18GB. It was 8 last year. We currently have not too expensive disk 4000GB hard disks.

19:28:56 benkay: i imagine you're just a random joe not in the web of trust, hdbuck ?

19:29:04 Namworld: We will probably reach usage saturation and blockchain will grow too slowly compared to storage doubling in capacity much before blockchain doesn't fit in a single recent consumer grade drive.

19:30:28 benkay: some day you'll need an entire DC for the blockchain. what of it?

19:30:40 Namworld: Yeah blockchain is big. But storage capacity and computing power is increasing very rapidely and exponentially. Much faster the the amount of worldwide transactions.

19:30:51 Namworld: than the*

19:31:24 Namworld: benkay, you would eventually need an entire DC assuming computer components stopped improving every year.

19:31:52 BingoBoingo: benkay: Nah, storage capacities are growing too fast and have too much of a head start. It will probably fit on a single hard drive for at least another decade. It's just... Parsing the block chain as a full node will probably require more thoroughput than a single drive offers.

19:32:58 hdbuck: benkay: ahah yes probably. im some humble average joe not very used to that WOT thing sry.. trying to learn tho ^^

19:33:28 asciilifeform: wonder if anyone else has toyed with the idea of hardware purpose-built to store blockchain. think ssd, but write-only (antifuse! etc)

19:33:43 benkay: !up hdbuck

19:34:11 benkay: hdbuck: if you're serious about wanting to learn, start with gpg. get into the wot, get a rating, lurk or derp in here as you see fit.

19:34:27 asciilifeform: standardize calendar sync. and snippet length - so if you own one, you will always know if it works - compare to another one for same time period

19:34:31 benkay: no crime in being wrong, i do it all the time. there's plenty of larnin' to go around.

19:34:31 Namworld: I expect it to go like this -> adoption keeps going up fast, blockchain grows faster and faster, people get worried, we reach saturation of usage, blockchain growth starts looking linear, storage capacity keeps doubling every few years, people stop worrying.

19:34:50 Mats_cd03: seems like this is a solved problem with SPV

19:35:12 benkay: i'm highlighting that in a worst case scenario it's not a problem and also as Mats_cd03 and i have and keep pointing out - not a problem to begin with even.

19:35:17 Namworld: Blockchain keeps fitting on a single drive as long as it's regularly upgraded to a recent one and start looking smaller and smaller.

19:35:22 benkay: ('cause SPV).

19:35:27 asciilifeform: storing bits that never need to flip again ought to be technologically simpler - on basic physical level - than the normal kind.

19:35:33 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I've put some though into it.

19:35:53 hdbuck: benkay: alright, thanks man - i'll check MP's guide. :)

19:36:41 benkay: failing that, you can use a btc addr as well.

19:36:48 asciilifeform: one basic function in such a gadget is that it ought to be able to compare itself, via direct electrical wiring, to another one purporting to be identical.
