03:20:11 nanotube: mircea_popescu: it used to sort by rating value... i figured sorting by rating total is a more informative first display... though ideally it would sort by 'total trust from nanotube' or something like that, but that would require writing some code to run those calculations in batch mode and caching them, cuz running every rater live would be expensive...

03:20:27 mircea_popescu: nanotube how a bout just sort on freshness ?

03:20:32 mircea_popescu: save everyone a click.

03:22:06 asciilifeform: interestingly, my favourite hosting co. is virtually ddos-proof and costs almost nothing.

03:22:35 asciilifeform: down side - only eats usd, and doesn't give actual machine (not even vm.) so no persistent processes.

03:25:27 PinkPosixPXE: ty

03:25:29 PinkPosixPXE: BingoBoingo: I'd need more details, but essentially you can use rng-tools/rng to increase the entropy on a server. How it would be implemented for your exact use, would require more discussion.

03:25:47 asciilifeform: i think he's asking for hardware.

03:26:24 BingoBoingo: PinkPosixPXE: Yeah, talking about specific hardware I cooked before trying to gen GPG keys using the NetBSD PGP implementation

03:26:41 BingoBoingo: because apparently real Macs don't generate entropy

03:26:55 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: from whence did you imagine it would come?

03:27:17 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Cloud chamber...

03:27:17 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: incidentally, commodore-64 (and 128) had hardware noise. (in the 6581 sound chip.)

03:27:35 PinkPosixPXE: did it time out on generating a gpg key due to lack of entropy?

03:27:40 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: that one: http://www.loper-os.org/vintage/parallelsid/parasid.html

03:27:41 assbot: Parallel Port SID6581 Interface

03:27:48 BingoBoingo: There were motherboard component that looked like they could fill the role

03:28:02 BingoBoingo: PinkPosixPXE: Not time out... cooked self

03:28:19 PinkPosixPXE: overheated?

03:28:25 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Could have been helpful

03:28:38 BingoBoingo: PinkPosixPXE: Overheated to the extent that magic smoke

03:28:44 PinkPosixPXE: wow

03:28:47 asciilifeform: magic smoke out of what ?

03:28:52 PinkPosixPXE: just trying to generate entropy

03:28:57 asciilifeform: if not sure from what, probably had electrolytic cap burst

03:29:02 asciilifeform: routine on vintage gear.

03:29:05 asciilifeform: find which, replace.

03:29:10 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Out of class mac case SE/30 lives in

03:29:37 asciilifeform: pop it, and post photo if it's been so long that your nose will not lead you to the culprit.

03:29:45 PinkPosixPXE: I mean, there's plenty of hardware abounds, it depends what you want, want to use it for, and your budget/access to hardware

03:30:01 PinkPosixPXE: then there's tools that help increase entropy

03:30:07 BingoBoingo: asciilifeform> pop it, and post photo if it's been so long that your nose will not lead you to the culprit. << Maor concerned with shaming WP matt

03:30:28 *: asciilifeform unable to parse this sentence

03:31:03 PinkPosixPXE: ok, I'm not the only one struggling in that department ;P ... No offense intended of course

03:31:04 asciilifeform: PinkPosixPXE: tools that help increase entropy << what've we come to. as if the heat death of universe weren't arriving quickly enough...

03:33:14 PinkPosixPXE: hehe, well now the theory has changed to the "cold death" of the universe, as it's expanding at an ever increasing rate, and galaxies/etc. are moving further away

03:33:17 PinkPosixPXE: from each other

03:33:30 PinkPosixPXE: but I digress..

03:33:32 PinkPosixPXE: http://www.howtoforge.com/helping-the-random-number-generator-to-gain-enough-entropy-with-rng-tools-debian-lenny

03:33:32 assbot: Helping The Random Number Generator To Gain Enough Entropy With rng-tools (Debian Lenny) | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

03:34:03 BingoBoingo: At the moment universe is headed to a hate death, because Wordpress's Matt Mullenwang dunno priorities

03:34:25 asciilifeform: PinkPosixPXE: this tool does precisely nothing without a hardware rng.

03:34:33 mircea_popescu: mkay, so with the 3rd attack the list of goat's botnet ips went from 1k to 3k items

03:34:37 PinkPosixPXE: ignore the debian portion, rng-tools is something most OS's should have available

03:34:41 PinkPosixPXE: So we have to increase entropy somehow. This can be done with rng-tools, a package to use a hardware true number generator (TRNG). Don't worry, you don't need any extra hardware, we will use /dev/urandom as our true number generator.

03:34:42 mircea_popescu: looking forward to full discovery.

03:34:50 mircea_popescu: meanwhile, qntra is back in working order.

03:36:07 PinkPosixPXE: Fixed my issue earlier today, entropy isn't solely hardware dependant,

03:36:28 cazalla: mircea_popescu, i cannot log in, again, 403

03:36:39 asciilifeform: PinkPosixPXE: in the sense of 'it works better if you plug it in' ?

03:36:41 BingoBoingo: !up devthedev

03:36:50 mircea_popescu: cazalla meh, apparently he's got moar.

03:37:00 cazalla: in fact, entire site is 403 for me now except static page

03:38:44 PinkPosixPXE: it uses /dev/urandom, it's not hardware driven, it just pulls entropy through rng-tools software, rather than 'mouse input' or 'disk activity' etc.

03:43:08 mircea_popescu: why is mt inferior ?!

03:43:12 BingoBoingo: Twistor is harder though

03:43:17 PinkPosixPXE: There's that new usb device called 'entropy' which is a usb coin wallet, that you can just plug in https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/mycelium-successfully-funds-usb-bitcoin-wallet-device-entropy-with-indiegogo/

03:43:17 assbot: Mycelium Successfully Funds USB Bitcoin Wallet Device, Entropy, With Indiegogo - CryptoCoinsNews

03:43:45 devthedev: Ugh, CCN

03:43:45 PinkPosixPXE: When the Mycelium Entropy is inserted into the USB drive, hardware-based entropy is harnessed to create a large, truly random, number. The random number is generated using a static RAM chip, which Holcomb, D.E.; Burleson, W.P.; and Fu. K. have proven is capable of generating “128-bit true random numbers.” This number is then used as the seed to generate a private key and corresponding Bitcoin

03:43:52 PinkPosixPXE: address

03:43:53 cazalla: anyone else getting "You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server." on qntra.net?

03:44:08 asciilifeform: ('inferior' is perhaps poor choice of word here. for cryptographic purposes. for, say, homework, where the run must be replicable - one must use prng.)

03:44:14 devthedev: No cazalla

03:44:25 asciilifeform: nothing new under the sky.

03:44:51 PinkPosixPXE: asciilifeform: For serious security, perhaps yes, but everything runs on hardware, it's just the software layer that interacts with how entropy is derived from teh hardware wether it's something you plug in or something you run on a server

03:45:00 PinkPosixPXE: but depends on your end goal/objective

03:45:09 asciilifeform: that'd be 'it works better if you plug it in.'

03:45:51 asciilifeform: that is, if you process the output of noise apparatus as prescribed, you get the expected result; if you forget to, and call 'return(3)' as in the comic - not.

04:02:33 mircea_popescu: mike_c 90% of the attack was mitigated simply by using a html file for root, instead of the php. guy did like 3 blasts before figuring it out. then it did a blast in which instead of / he called /index.php?[randnumber]

04:02:48 mircea_popescu: that resulted in a ban for any node calling the fucking obviously nonstandard url

05:49:32 BingoBoingo: !up mpmcsweeney

05:49:34 mpmcsweeney: danke

05:50:25 mpmcsweeney: I guess my point is that there's honestly no influence to our reporting, at least as far as I as a reporter and editor can tell -- and Im intimately involved in the process

05:50:43 mpmcsweeney: and never once has any pressure about anthing come down from my superiors

05:50:48 mpmcsweeney: *anything

05:51:46 cazalla: i know nothing

05:52:33 mpmcsweeney: I dunno, I do this for story telling, its a good industry

05:52:51 mpmcsweeney: and its good to meet others who share that enthusiasm :D

05:52:52 cazalla: how much do coindesk pay for articles mpmcschultz

05:53:29 mpmcsweeney: when I was a freelancer it was more or less $10 every 100 words

05:53:40 mpmcsweeney: nowadays I make a monthly salary

05:56:44 decimation: asciilifeform: yeah I think your solution is definitely better than the $5k machine I linked. I doubt anyone makes something like it, and if they did it wouldn't be cheap

05:56:52 Adlai: coinbase don't pay in shares? :P

06:57:29 mircea_popescu: yeah it's taking a short break

06:58:17 mircea_popescu: mpmcsweeney: my name is Stan Higgins - Im heavily involvd in our newsroom and I can safely say we accept no payment of any kind from companies << that's bs, you know it, i know it, why even bother with it ?

06:58:20 *: Adlai is a recently liberated corporate slaveboi! =_=

06:58:57 mircea_popescu: nobody particularly cares if you stay or go, but people wil get pretty aggravated by this sort of pr/party line approach. the reason this is a cool forum is exactly not allowing that sorta crap.

06:59:08 mircea_popescu: Adlai o yeah ? where'd you work ?

07:00:12 Adlai: mircea_popescu: your article mainly addresses problems with decentralized security systems as a replacement for high-frequency exchanges. i think it's still possible to issue tokens such as readership credits (or movie tickets, etc) in this fashion, since their market is a lot less dependant upon dedicated market makers

07:00:22 Adlai: (the companies issuing and accepting the tokens are forced to act as market makers)

07:00:40 mircea_popescu: so it's not dependent on them then.

07:00:44 mircea_popescu: what is this reddit logic.

07:02:02 *: Adlai worked analytics at http://playscape.com and "research" at http://autodeskrnd.co.il

07:02:07 assbot: Autodesk Israel R&D Center

07:02:50 mircea_popescu: too lazy to dig, but how diod they end ? acquihire ? simple burnout ?

07:03:34 Adlai: playscape has been burning VC money for years and downsized 33%, autodesk terminated my employment due to "being unable to accomodate working from home or at odd hours"

07:03:48 mircea_popescu: o.O

07:04:03 *: Adlai refuses to work even-numbered hours

07:04:07 mircea_popescu: lol

07:04:52 mircea_popescu: so research what, derping on google analytics and whatever other clickbezzlor node.js websites ?

07:06:28 Adlai: custom stack handrolled from google bigquery and excel glued together with mutant python scripst

07:06:42 mircea_popescu: but basically, counting fake clicks all day ?

07:07:10 Adlai: impressions, purchases, which players downloaded which additional games after finishing which levels, etc

07:07:33 Adlai: i dealt mostly with making data accessible for my boss, so he could perform the actual analysis

07:09:48 Adlai: don't have too much interesting to say about it, i'd rather discuss decentralized assets

07:10:24 Adlai: i'm far from convinced they're good for anything, but the only way to really know is by watching them break under stress/attacks

07:14:31 Adlai: you could also auction qntra credits through a centralized system, that aspect of my suggestion isn't dependent upon decentralized issuance

07:17:35 thickasthieves: just use bitcoin

07:17:38 thickasthieves: ta-da!

07:17:55 thickasthieves: (or Altcoin)

07:18:05 mircea_popescu: Adlai you know this is like... done already. right ?

07:18:37 Adlai: not really, i'm only familiar with qntra et al for what, three days?

07:19:10 Adlai: so if i mention stuff that's already done, please just point it out

07:19:31 mircea_popescu: wasn't i reading a bevy of suggestions from you above tho ?

07:19:56 Adlai: you probably were. i can shut up if that's what you're asking me to do.

07:20:24 mircea_popescu: i'm not. i'm instead kloinking you over the head for the add-water-and-stir suggestion dust you got.

07:20:36 mircea_popescu: are they supposed to work just like that, in principle, don't even need to know what you're suggesting about or anything ?

07:21:11 Adlai: are what supposed to work just like how?

07:21:38 mircea_popescu: let's build a simulacra.

07:22:17 mircea_popescu: guy in the hospital. adlai talks to doctor : this dude should get casts. casts are cool. doctor to adlai : did you see his xrays ? adlai umm... no. but casts are cool.

07:22:21 mircea_popescu: see the problem with the approach ?

07:23:06 *: Adlai would probably not get invited into the operating theatre just for walking around outside the hospital with an anatomy coloring book

07:23:09 mircea_popescu: a discussion of casts is entirely spurious. the problem's the approach.

07:27:55 Adlai: +mircea_popescu | so research what, << oh, if you were asking what i did at autodesk, it was much more interesting

07:28:24 Adlai: i worked on connecting http://dynamobim.org/ to the backend powering http://shapeshifter.io/

07:29:49 Adlai: essentially, got paid to learn C++ and C#. not things i'd like to use in new projects, but still good tools to have

07:30:00 mircea_popescu: Adlai this isn't the amazon thing is it ?

07:31:46 mircea_popescu: you're not old enough to be talking of that "limits to growth" retardation

07:32:53 Adlai: no, dynamo is a scripting engine for vasari/revit (BIM tools aka CAD for architects/engineers), shapeshifter is a generative modeling library for making things like [photo incoming...]

07:33:00 Adlai: what "limits to growth" retardation?

07:33:35 Adlai: will gribble kick me for an imgur link here?

07:33:41 mircea_popescu: there was this first pass of algoreism, "golf club" patternism and all the rest of the retardation

07:33:57 mircea_popescu: it was written in either algol or cobol i forget, and was supposed to be a big deal for rich hippies in the 70s

07:34:01 mircea_popescu: no.

14:34:06 `jurov`: punkman: what if coinbr issues you redeemable signed receipt in exchange for your shares,

14:34:08 mats_cd03: they could be used for remote exploitation, e.g. non-browser, non-document things

14:34:09 `jurov`: that entitles you (or anyone who has it) for delivery of these assets to their coinbr acct within 14 days of redemption, plus any dividends in meantime?

14:34:15 chetty: eh -198, that not so bad

14:34:21 mats_cd03: if u r a 0day hunter... get on it and make some monaaaay

14:34:49 mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 why does it seem nobody has noticed lol

14:35:19 mats_cd03: well, they weren't patched. thats mostly why.

14:35:24 mircea_popescu: jurov that leading quote is the substance of annoying. anyway, "anyone who has it" can backfire massively.

14:35:42 mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 o you meant by the victims, nm.

14:36:02 `jurov`: um... it's up to him to keep it secret, no?

14:38:41 mircea_popescu: not to mention it motivates him to finish the deeds thing already :D

14:39:56 `jurov`: i'm trying to figure out a way for poor qntra writers to have their shares, too, while avoiding freeloading

14:40:49 mircea_popescu: i know. but i mean, issue it in his name/gpg key, and require that in order for a third party to benefit, there must be a deeds registered, signed assignation

17:47:39 asciilifeform: from bank of mars, yes

17:47:47 mircea_popescu: maybe im behind the times, this was a 2000s event

17:47:53 asciilifeform: definitely behind.

17:48:13 mircea_popescu: o the arbitration thing

17:48:14 mircea_popescu: heh

17:48:32 mircea_popescu: "gotta have 'magistrate' judges and 'arbiters' and anything and everyting as long as it';s not a judge"

17:48:35 mircea_popescu: gotta love these people.

17:49:06 bounce: that should end up a contract with lots of sections elided

17:49:35 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes: lady: "maybe you should take a nap before our dinner party" << translation "fuck me!"

17:49:40 asciilifeform: 'arbitration' in usa is a term where the folks who fuck you over with the contract specify that you agreed to use tame judges, of their choosing (who are not in fact judges of the crown) in any dispute.

17:50:07 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't recall ever signing a contract iwth arbitration clauses.

17:50:14 asciilifeform: bounce: feel free to try this. the flunkie will show you the door.

17:50:33 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: these are SOP today, for things as mundane as telephone service.

17:50:38 mircea_popescu: and in a dispute with the romanian immigration service five years ago or so, they brought this objeciton in court, specifically, that i can't sue them before i do arbitration

17:50:49 mircea_popescu: and i said that either they drop it or i sue them and overturn THAT idiocy too

17:50:51 mircea_popescu: and so they dropped it.

17:51:32 mircea_popescu: so in the end i only overturned the dumbass "regulation" they had invented in the first place.

17:51:55 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: one can theoretically try this in usa, but it will cost $maxint. and at the end of the day can end up 'having problems.'

17:52:11 mircea_popescu: yes but what else is a life for, i ask you,

17:52:13 mircea_popescu: other than problems.

17:52:28 mircea_popescu: only thing i ever heard an excited mathematician say was

17:52:31 asciilifeform: well normally the 'problems' generator is used very sparingly, because most folks lack $maxint

17:52:32 mircea_popescu: "this is an interesting problem!"

17:52:34 nubbins`: ^

17:52:38 asciilifeform: or even $65535.

17:52:43 nubbins`: interesting problems with elegant solutions

17:53:06 nubbins`: i had a prof get overcome once when a student presented a surprisingly succinct proof in ring theory

17:53:09 nubbins`: what a fucking nerd ;/

17:53:12 mircea_popescu: lol

17:53:30 asciilifeform: in fact, i know many folks with less than 9 bits of usd at any given moment.

17:53:32 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 38 @ 0.09873684 = 3.752 BTC [-] {9}

17:54:18 nubbins`: uh, $512?

17:54:27 asciilifeform: aye

17:54:40 nubbins`: we talking in-hand or total life's possessions?

17:54:50 asciilifeform: both, either.

17:54:59 nubbins`: i suppose i do, too

17:55:02 bounce: in-hand can be higher while total worth is considerably less.

17:55:04 mircea_popescu: well sure, plenty of people in their 30s are underwater

17:55:16 asciilifeform: majority, i think

17:55:28 nubbins`: ^

17:55:33 nubbins`: anyone with a mortgage, essentially

17:55:40 mircea_popescu: no, because 100mn europeans and 80mn usians are a tiny sliver of a 600mn population in their 30s

17:55:49 mircea_popescu: and in most of the world, 30s is the peak age.

17:56:06 nubbins`: sierra leone, you only got 5 years left at 30

17:56:12 asciilifeform: and the ones not underwater - are one wave away from being under

17:56:26 asciilifeform: one car wreck, disease, bad gamble of whatever kind, etc

17:56:44 mircea_popescu: nubbins` as i was explaining to gabriel_laddel coupla days ago, averages are slippery. in sierra leone it's 35 because a bunch of retarded infants die young.

17:56:53 mircea_popescu: if this happened in the us, too, it'd be a much better place to be.,

17:57:00 asciilifeform: ussr did not calculate life expectancy using the retard formula

17:57:09 asciilifeform: if you never lived, you're not part of the equation.

17:57:16 nubbins`: oh, hm. infant mortality. that's a valid point

17:57:24 nubbins`: retrospectively obvious, as well D;

17:57:27 mircea_popescu: averages are really only to be used by qualified people.

17:57:34 asciilifeform: in fact, life expectancy as scalar is retarded.

17:57:36 mircea_popescu: they're the numeric equivalent of nitric acid

17:57:50 asciilifeform: i'm not particularly interested in the chances of having died while 5

17:57:53 asciilifeform: because, well, didn't.

17:58:17 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform statistics is perhaps the hardest thing for the monkey brain to grok

17:58:37 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 20500 @ 0.00073658 = 15.0999 BTC [+]

17:58:46 mircea_popescu: harder than crypto, tho the fonts of difficulty be well related

17:59:07 nubbins`: wow, actually 56.55 years at birth, sez here

17:59:08 asciilifeform: this is why the machine guns will eventually be taken away from the monkeys.

18:00:11 nubbins`: <+mircea_popescu> asciilifeform statistics is perhaps the hardest thing for the monkey brain to grok << +1

18:00:43 mircea_popescu: incidentally, one of the major pillars of the fallacious theory of "progress" is exactly this. back in 1700, a bunch of retarded kids that should never have lived died before being 21.

18:00:56 jurov: asciilifeform was there a "damage from incorrect date calculation", like in my household insurance?

18:00:58 mircea_popescu: the current day progressive averages all that out and comes up with o wow, "life expectancy has doubled"!!!1

18:01:09 mircea_popescu: in fact, expectancy of quality of life has more than halved

18:01:17 asciilifeform: jurov: nah, i think the y2k crap has all been snipped out by now

18:01:22 mircea_popescu: whereas actual life duration expectancy hasn't much changed. except if you're a retard.

18:01:27 mircea_popescu: which change is both immoral and unwelcome

18:03:17 mircea_popescu: otherwise, seneca lived 94 years just as well as buffett or w/e

18:04:24 asciilifeform: not 'just as well.' immeasurably better

18:04:37 asciilifeform: in what company, think.

18:04:47 mircea_popescu: right.

18:04:49 asciilifeform: and probably could not even imagine synthetic food, etc.

18:04:55 mircea_popescu: because all the seo experts of his time were dogfood by age 6

18:05:55 asciilifeform: actually, the dogfood mechanism being selective for born seo experts is not a necessary hypothesis

18:05:59 asciilifeform: (valid. but not necessary)

18:06:08 mircea_popescu: sure.

18:06:16 asciilifeform: where we are now is just as easily explained by crowded world.

18:06:26 mircea_popescu: how did it get to be crowded ?

18:06:27 asciilifeform: in which otherwise functional humans can end up seo experts, also.

18:06:34 asciilifeform: how did << in precisely this way, yes

18:06:39 mircea_popescu: so then.

18:06:40 asciilifeform: how else.

The room looked like a laboratory and workshop, which is was. The Professor was not too clean, and his hair and beard sadly wanted the attention of a barber.

19:11:09 mike_c: or a newspaper

19:11:10 mircea_popescu: everything';s a blog after all.

19:11:21 thickasthieves: it's just database

19:11:27 mircea_popescu: the blog is the superset of the written word. tom sawyer is a badly implemented blog.

19:11:29 mike_c: not even any css

19:11:35 bounce: then there's no point in trying to be different, is there?

19:11:42 mircea_popescu: different from what ?

19:11:54 kakobrekla: blog is buzzword

19:12:03 thickasthieves: well the trying t be different, i thought, was to eschew now-common problems in news

19:12:11 thickasthieves: like shilling, lying, etc

19:12:15 bounce: well, why do you submit something to qntra that would do peachy fine on fraudsters?

19:12:30 thickasthieves: cuz ideas!

19:12:34 bounce: oh. ideas.

19:12:36 mircea_popescu: bounce think about it, if i never submitted anything to qntra wouldn't ppl want to know why i don't ?

19:13:00 thickasthieves: this sounds a bit like the colored coins conversation ;)

19:13:13 bounce: you're rooting for the tin foil hats that speculate you'll get paid to not write for qntra?

19:13:15 kakobrekla: cept we are being coloured

19:13:35 jurov: this is an editorial not an article

19:13:42 thickasthieves: retrofitting problems to solutions

19:13:44 mircea_popescu: bounce lol i think im good either way, not about to starve if they reject my contribution :D

19:14:25 bounce: right so

19:14:41 *: asciilifeform confesses that he isn't terribly fond of the qntra articles to date. nothing against the folks who wrote them! but because the entire 'bitcoin news' sphere - not only reportage, but the subject matter per se - is permeated with spam oil.

19:14:55 asciilifeform: and the smell comes through

19:15:01 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i can see your angle. if you feel like doing one sometime...

19:15:12 BingoBoingo: qntra prolly ought to grow to include editorial eventually. cazalla's decision as to when

19:15:25 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's the thing, i couldn't possibly write one and have it be any more 'on subject' than yours above!

19:15:31 thickasthieves: it's just new, we are indeed trying to judge a toddler like an adult

19:15:53 thickasthieves: shows our interest though

19:15:56 thickasthieves: which is good

19:16:20 mircea_popescu: thickasthieves wel no, this is the sort of shit that happens. one day cazalla was minding his own fucking business. suddenly, it's "make a news site!" then the next week it's ddosed to hel, and then the next week it's "here's an artikcle from mp, everyone in chan wants to make a call, it's on your head. make a decision"

19:16:22 Apocalyptic: %d

19:16:22 asciilifeform: thickasthieves: i'd argue that it isn't simply too new, or done improperly in some way. but - does wrong job.

19:16:23 mircea_popescu: never a dull moment.

19:16:23 atcbot: [ATC Diff] Current Diff: 1878190.93 Est. Next Diff: 324029.05 in 148 blocks (#46368) Est. % Change: -82.75

19:17:05 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how do you mean wrong job ?

19:17:08 asciilifeform: thickasthieves: imho folks who think 'hate shitnews, gonna make my own nyt and forbes, with hookers & blackjack' are missing some of the problem

19:17:22 asciilifeform: i'll give example

19:17:48 asciilifeform: 'the fall of moolah.io'. 'lawsky stays lulzy.' 'butterfly turds something-or-other.' etc

19:18:01 thickasthieves: right

19:18:05 mircea_popescu: myeah.

19:18:07 asciilifeform: i think in usa this is called 'framing'

19:18:16 asciilifeform: or maybe not

19:18:18 thickasthieves: the b-a culture and btc culture is leaking

19:18:20 devthedev: framing?

19:18:22 asciilifeform: but the subject matter itself is the problem

19:18:24 bounce: framing.

19:18:26 asciilifeform: rather than execution

19:18:33 bounce: putting stuff in suggestive light

19:18:39 asciilifeform: wrong word, nm

19:18:41 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what do you want, get a better army ?

19:18:42 thickasthieves: i think execution is part of it though

19:18:44 mircea_popescu: from where, heaven ?

19:18:47 mike_c: the lawsky title was a bit silly for my taste, but the content was useful to me. i'm glad i read what happenned.

19:18:48 asciilifeform: qntra lifted the choice of subjects from the turdmeisternews

19:19:01 thickasthieves: you can tell when qntra is trying to be cold, and when it's catering to b-a readers

19:19:06 mircea_popescu: that was baked in the design. "take their subjects, write them better"

19:19:22 asciilifeform: example of -interesting- and genuine news - mp's piece. but he can't cough up the actual intel to substantiate the piece, that would aid the enemy.

19:19:24 bounce: headline writing is a fine art though. news shops have people that specialise in exactly that.

19:19:41 mike_c: if you just want occassional useful articles, read blogs.b-a.

19:19:46 mircea_popescu: bounce very true. im hoping someone will emerge

19:19:52 mircea_popescu: probably out of the ba chickdom.

19:20:00 mike_c: if you want to know all the stupid shit that is hapenning, not told to you by idiots, read qntra.

19:20:07 asciilifeform: ^

19:20:12 thickasthieves: when i worked at newspaper, headline writing was mostly editors job

19:20:27 thickasthieves: writers (and even layout people) would write placeholer headlines

19:20:35 thickasthieves: and editor would adjust

19:20:55 mircea_popescu: i think mike substantially has it, tbh. that's pretty much the mission.

19:20:59 Apocalyptic: <mike_c> if you want to know all the stupid shit that is hapenning, not told to you by idiots, read qntra. // that's probably the best definition of what it does

19:21:11 mircea_popescu: i mean sure in time it can branch out and grow and w/e, but as an anchor, that's how it was born

19:21:20 asciilifeform: perhaps i simply don't like the dish, and should not bash the cook.

19:21:37 bounce: there's more or less three candidates, given the wordcount rule

19:21:41 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform idea being, everything needs to be done. cables are needed too.

19:21:46 mircea_popescu: even if "cables are ugly" or w/e.

19:21:58 mircea_popescu: bounce candidates to what ?

19:23:10 thickasthieves: my main gripe with news is when it's propaganda or meant to manipulate

19:23:27 asciilifeform: that's everybody's main gripe, but leaves certain things in the shadows

19:23:37 bounce: first it's got to steal your attention, then it's got to keep it, then it's gotta fill the article, then it's got to pad the wordcount

19:23:43 mircea_popescu: thickasthieves news will have a pov. want it to or not.

19:24:14 mircea_popescu: bounce my idea was to make it contrary forces. so the wordcount should result like the stuff in colorado, a splendor.

19:24:32 asciilifeform: 'It is like going to a library full of books that took 50 man-years to produce each, inventing a way to cut down the costs to a few man-months per book by copying and randomly improving on other books, and then wondering why nobody thinks your library full of these cheaper books is an inspiration to future authors.'

19:25:52 asciilifeform: here are some imaginary examples of actual 'bitcoin news'

19:25:54 mircea_popescu: emacs can tell you :D

19:26:26 asciilifeform: picture a blog where some chap analyzes latest crapware, and posts reverse engineer autopsies of samples which somehow concern btc.

19:26:46 asciilifeform: or one where a fellow who owns some big iron (several hundred cpu, perhaps) walks the blockchain every day in search of strange

19:26:50 mircea_popescu: this is not news stan. this is science publications.

19:27:02 mircea_popescu: this is the stuff that blogs are made for.

19:27:03 thickasthieves: like organofcorti

19:27:07 mircea_popescu: quite.

19:27:07 cazalla: well see, qntra is titled news, views and commentary so thickasthieves, you are quite welcome to submit an article in response to mircea_popescu's

19:27:18 asciilifeform: or by an anonymous kid who plants wifi bugs, which forward captures to his wpa cracking cluster, around usg facilities

19:27:19 cazalla: and gee i had a few too many last night

19:27:22 thickasthieves: heh

19:27:30 asciilifeform: i could go on forever

19:27:33 mircea_popescu: cazalla what, that means i'm in ?

19:27:45 thickasthieves: maybe i'll submit an article about the problem with qntra share dist model

19:27:59 thickasthieves: probly more suited to mike_c tho

19:28:05 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 28800 @ 0.00073879 = 21.2772 BTC [+] {2}

19:28:41 cazalla: mircea_popescu, yes but a little reminiscent of when the stooge is told to give a check to the tangiers lol he does as he is told

19:28:43 mircea_popescu: TheBroker put that text blob in gpg to decode it

19:28:48 asciilifeform: qntra reads just like ordinary newspaper! 'company c now selling turd t.' 'company s having supply chain problems with their shit.' 'politician p derps on topic t.'

19:29:11 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well guess why!

19:29:12 BingoBoingo: <thickasthieves> maybe i'll submit an article about the problem with qntra share dist model << Qntra shares embody MP view of wealth as % of math rather than number ot tokens

19:29:25 cazalla: qntra authors are compromised because yesterday mircea_popescu organises hosting, today he wants to be an authour!

19:29:46 thickasthieves: you three get shares for each article too right?

19:29:54 thickasthieves: your own articles i mean

19:30:06 thickasthieves: i know you get them for others

19:30:11 bounce: "free software a mediocre idea" oh well

19:30:13 cazalla: yes, we can earn from the pool as well

19:31:33 thickasthieves: so while qntra has the least income, and needs the most from few (as in it's founders will work for equity only at start) it's founders and groundfloor employees get the most equity

19:31:42 thickasthieves: this leads to income eventually

19:31:49 asciilifeform: how is it supposed to generate income again?

19:31:54 *: asciilifeform confused

19:31:59 thickasthieves: which by then shares are very diluted for everyone but 3 founders

19:32:25 thickasthieves: i just cant sort why owning shares and holding them will ever be good

19:32:38 thickasthieves: and if that is true

19:32:45 thickasthieves: its never good for market buyers either

19:33:15 mike_c: thickasthieves: you see peterl's article on it?

19:35:44 cazalla: i think coindesk got to thickasthieves

19:36:53 thickasthieves: peterl's conclusion seems to be that only buyers of shares would logically be donors

19:37:08 thickasthieves: make people spend shares to read it i guess

19:37:44 mike_c: cazalla: suggestion: pick a reasonable set of categories (8-10?) and apply to all articles. this would allow for sections and filtering.

19:37:57 mike_c: additional tags of course don't hurt anything

19:39:01 cazalla: mike_c, we've been adding categories as we go so they will expand over time, not that fussed on tags though tbh

19:40:19 thickasthieves: possibly, the only ways for qntra shares to go up in value would be divs becoming great, or somehow closing the loop by having a way to 'spend' shares.. but at that point all you did was make an altcoin

19:40:35 mike_c: but if you have a core set of tags it is easy to have finance page, legal page, editorial page, etc. (this is what I would want, perhaps not widely desired).

19:41:07 mircea_popescu: <bounce> "free software a mediocre idea" oh well <<< who ?

19:41:08 thickasthieves: also could look at it from the feeds point of you

19:41:17 thickasthieves: maybe mike_c only wants to follow one category

19:46:23 asciilifeform: how?

19:46:26 peterl: so people will be buying shares to get a part of the income

19:46:57 devthedev: Yes

19:46:58 peterl: how to make money? sell ads or subscriptions or classifieds or whatever

19:47:04 asciilifeform: ads?

19:47:04 thickasthieves: the curves can easily be unfavorable

19:47:05 asciilifeform: to whom?

19:47:18 thickasthieves: and likely will always be unfavorable

19:47:43 peterl: but if they make some money, then it will be shared among the shares

19:47:50 mircea_popescu: thickasthieves the newspaper business isn't really for poor people ya know.

19:49:15 thickasthieves: in that case, no need to be a public co

19:49:28 mircea_popescu: no need, sure.

19:49:28 mircea_popescu: so ?

19:49:43 peterl: already there are some bids up for S.QNTR, some people are being generous to the authors, some not so much

19:50:02 *: asciilifeform realized that he simply regards william randolph hearst's basic invention (mass news) as fundamentally pernicious, and not something that 'good folks can do right because they're good and hearst is evil'

19:50:21 thickasthieves: well think of this conversation as informing to potential investors that this isnt really an investment to expect gains from, other than knowing your favorite news source will continue to exist

19:50:42 mike_c: what?

19:51:11 mike_c: ok, i'll write it up.

19:51:13 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform more to it than simply that, i suspect.

19:51:56 asciilifeform: mass news and derp are inseparable in my head. perhaps one can have one without the other, but that's not unlike a unipolar magnet.

19:52:25 mircea_popescu: well, i suspect there's a lot of unresolved questions in there.

19:52:26 asciilifeform: in some 'unconventional' models of physics, they exist.

19:52:33 peterl: thickasthieves: hopefully investors are smart enough to read the listing and understand what is going on

19:52:57 thickasthieves: and yknow, i'm not saying i wouldnt buy shares just to support it

19:53:07 mircea_popescu: im not even sure what are yu saying lol.

19:53:13 asciilifeform: i was very unsure re: this hypothesis prior to qntra

19:53:20 asciilifeform: but now i strongly suspect that it is true

19:53:26 mircea_popescu: for one thing, every news outlet to date, pando, gawker, you name it, was started with a nest egg and no perspective to make money.

19:53:27 devthedev: I hope it turns out okay for authors too, we'll have to wait and see.

19:53:37 mircea_popescu: for that matter, whatsapp has yet to make any money. etc.

19:53:50 mircea_popescu: so yeah, s.qntr is only slightly better than the blue chip fiat company.

19:53:50 mircea_popescu: sure.

19:54:06 thickasthieves: i dont care about bluechip fiat co

19:54:20 mircea_popescu: right.

19:54:24 peterl: people are buying with the hope they might make some profit in the future

19:54:32 mircea_popescu: but whatever you care about, that's what alternatives investors have.

19:54:33 cazalla: mircea_popescu: cazalla can you explain that 4plebs img thing ? i dun have the context. <<< ANZACs go off to fight for the country, ya know, cis gendered men who promote the patriarchy, meanwhile all the leftys move in to Melbourne, meh wtf do i know anyway

19:56:04 thickasthieves: would qntra be interested in some logo mockups? i wont be offended if you dont use any, i just think it makes a create letterform

19:56:15 thickasthieves: great not create

19:56:37 thickasthieves: not sure if ur outright anti-logo

19:56:39 mircea_popescu: thickasthieves gotta talk to cazalla

19:56:46 thickasthieves: i am!

19:56:49 asciilifeform: another observation re: qntra. recall mircea_popescu's point about synthetic tomatoes?

19:56:56 cazalla: thickasthieves, not at this time but thanks

19:57:02 thickasthieves: word

19:57:09 asciilifeform: how we don't actually have more food today than in 1700, just greater quantities of food-like substance that staves off starvation

19:57:17 mircea_popescu: yeah, i recall it.

19:57:35 asciilifeform: well, if we were to go back to actual food, we would have to get used to perhaps 1/1000 as much of it mass-wise as we had 'food.'

19:57:38 asciilifeform: well, same applies to news.

19:57:55 thickasthieves: cazalla, may i ask why?

19:58:15 asciilifeform: i'm not certain that an article per day of actually interesting matter happens in the world. at least, not where a reporter can get to it.

19:58:22 cazalla: thickasthieves, because then the discussion will turn to how the logo can be improved and i'll end up focusing on that instead of content

19:58:30 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform to follow that model. qntra isn't a seller of 0-dioxin, 1814-equivalent tomatoes, but a greengrocer where they don't hire retards and don't mix shit in the fruit sala.d

19:58:33 mircea_popescu: still a green grocer.

19:58:39 asciilifeform: hm.

19:59:09 *: cazalla planted his tomatos last weekend

19:59:26 cazalla: tomatoes even, grosse and cherry, put some romas in next month

20:01:29 BingoBoingo: The tomatoes in the garden here are still fucking producing. It nearly frosted 3 weeks ago, but they won't stop this year.

20:02:28 asciilifeform: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-10-15/fcc-commissioner-butt-dialing-is-taxing-911

20:02:40 bounce: leaving aside "acts of nature", news is created by the doings of people. there're a lot more of those around than there were in 1700. if you assume only the top N most important bits are important, then that number stays constant. if you assume the top N% is important, then the absolute number of newsworthy things would likely adjust with the headcount

20:02:56 asciilifeform: bounce: there're a lot more of those around than there were in 1700 << no. there aren't.

20:02:59 asciilifeform: see the tomatoes example.

20:03:06 cazalla: BingoBoingo, i didn't get any last year, we had hail proceeded by a 5 day heat wave, that was the end of them

20:03:12 asciilifeform: no more people today than in 1700. fewer. more shaved apes - yes, there are.

20:03:31 asciilifeform: hard to emphasize this enough.

20:03:53 bounce: debatabel. we have a lot more opportunity, if perhaps and arguable less incentive, for not-yet-people to become people.

20:04:00 bounce: s/abel/able/

20:04:02 BingoBoingo: cazalla: Two years ago the bumper crop was brussel sprouts, produced into January

20:04:05 asciilifeform: not sure this happens after age 7 or so.

20:04:09 asciilifeform: physiologically.

20:04:42 cazalla: BingoBoingo, nice, yet to grow them although i've considered it

20:05:23 cazalla: mircea_popescu, i'll have your article up later this morning

20:05:57 cazalla: thickasthieves, deal with it --0-0--- or write an article in response to our commentary :P

20:10:04 mircea_popescu: this bounce-asciilifeform debate will probably live in the annals.

20:10:12 mircea_popescu: i mean... i can see either side of it. wtf to do now.

20:10:27 mircea_popescu: i can tell it's probably an important question.

20:11:04 *: BingoBoingo wonders why the focus on news exclusively as announcement of what happens now and not as the record historians dig through.

20:11:33 mircea_popescu: because historians are generally regarded like the rats in the sewer

20:11:42 mircea_popescu: they shoulkd be happy to get whatever it is that reaches them ?

20:12:00 thickasthieves: cazalla s'all good

20:12:02 bounce: the essential part seems to be how many shaved apes can become people, ie can become truly important. and this may or may not be limited within a sphere of influence, but there too we've managed to specialise, and multiple spheres are now more feasible.

20:12:37 mircea_popescu: bounce but hear the contrarian view. in 1814, there were about 1k actual scientists in the world, ie, people making their own moral judgements, as independent agents

20:12:48 mircea_popescu: and a few millions lawyers, doctors, journalists and other liberal professions,

20:12:51 bounce: what this does to relative and absolute importance depends on your viewpoint as much as plenty other factors

20:12:57 mircea_popescu: if not idem then at least somewhat approximting the same

20:13:03 mats_cd03: thickasthieves: wut was that site that downloaded torrents for you?

20:13:17 mircea_popescu: today, someone who has the unmitigated audacity to misrepresent herself as "senior" SEC counsel

20:13:26 mircea_popescu: lacks the authority to make a deal in her purported field of expertise

20:13:48 mircea_popescu: forget being an independent agent. she cant' even deal. she's not even a representative.

20:13:51 thickasthieves: mats_cd03 it died

20:13:56 mircea_popescu: what are we talking about then ? the five or so people that mp ?

20:14:04 asciilifeform: to the extent that today's 'news' are worth paying attention to, it is to write the history of mass lies.

20:14:05 mats_cd03: thickasthieves: ya but what was it. i'd like to reproduce it.

20:14:07 asciilifeform: example,

20:14:08 asciilifeform: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-10-15/ebola-new-infection-at-dallas-hospital-puts-focus-on-health-workers

20:14:08 assbot: New Ebola Infection at Dallas Hospital Puts Focus on Health Workers - Businessweek

20:14:11 thickasthieves: bitfetch.com

20:14:30 asciilifeform: read the one page and think about the arse-mouth gymnastics the buggers are going through to avoid saying 'yep, it's airborne'

20:14:35 thickasthieves: add a search to it and ur golden!

20:14:51 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 10800 @ 0.00073765 = 7.9666 BTC [-]

20:14:56 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's obviusly particulate airborne.

20:14:57 asciilifeform: this shit - will be remembered. history of how usa fellated its pistol.

20:15:05 mircea_popescu: which is why and how the entire "don't sneeze on people" thing was introduced.

20:15:58 bounce: apparently "senior counsel" doesn't mean "chief dealmaker". so she's in a position that sounds important but is essentially toothless when it's not about bullying random other parties into filling in a bunch of forms. this phenomenon isn't exactly new.

20:16:09 mircea_popescu: but if so is she, what hope has who ?

20:16:11 asciilifeform: airborne in the sense of, if you want to stand next to the patient and live, wear a suit appropriate for bathing in sarin.

20:16:35 mircea_popescu: jesus that was broken english.

20:16:52 bounce: the sec is more or less a puppet anyway; look into the commentary around the flash crash, esp. the nanex guys

20:16:59 mircea_popescu: so if not her, then who ?

20:17:09 mircea_popescu: if the sec is a puppet, if senior counsel for the sec ~= housewife

20:17:11 asciilifeform: who << shadowhitler?

20:17:11 bounce: around the sec? quite possibly nobody.

20:17:16 mircea_popescu: then who ? who are those numerous people that make news ?

20:17:20 mircea_popescu: so then... no news ?

20:17:53 bounce: sound and fury, signifying nothing.

20:18:02 asciilifeform: yes.

20:18:05 kakobrekla: no news. as no computing.

20:18:15 mircea_popescu: see, the distance between bounce's theory and asciilifeform's practice is that in theory there's a lot of things that aren't actually fouind in practice ?

20:18:32 asciilifeform: unless you - personally - planted a video bug in the toilet stall where ebama fucks his interns, and brags to them about zapping the white man with obola.

20:18:34 asciilifeform: and can prove it.

20:18:42 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not so.

20:18:47 mircea_popescu: suppose i put this on fraudsters, right now.

20:18:58 mircea_popescu: do you see pelosi coming out and chastising obama ?

20:19:01 asciilifeform: lol

20:19:13 bounce: could well be an emergent property of our social limits, mind. like how the human social intelect can deal with ~150 "friends"

20:19:24 asciilifeform: yes, in the popular imagination, 'exposing' something is as simple as printing a few words.

20:19:26 mircea_popescu: bounce that's a dubious theory. i don't credit it so much.

20:19:27 bounce: that puts a bit of a damper of how many people you can remember to be important

20:20:02 asciilifeform: in reality, you have to patch into satellite and show him eating the kitten on prime time tv. for a week straight. to have even small effect.

20:20:09 mircea_popescu: bounce in the same spirit (of statistics) : the average bacterium makes no penicillin

20:20:13 thickasthieves: whom is important is dynamic and relative

20:20:29 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but you've just moved the goalpost ?

20:20:40 asciilifeform: perhaps. given as i'm not even sure there's a game

20:20:41 bounce: it's not impossible, even if hard to see being as it is that same emergent property. so the point is not to discount it too easily.

20:20:55 mircea_popescu: suppose qntra buys mtv, and obama is shown back to back doing that, 18`994 times over two weeks.

20:20:56 mircea_popescu: so ?

20:21:27 mircea_popescu: to quote the teflon don speaking to sam giancanna, "all they got is a tape. let 'em play it 'till they're sick of it"

20:21:27 asciilifeform: this occasionally happens (nixon?) - then muppet is replaced with an otherwise-identical spare, who has not yet eaten the public kitten fillet.

20:21:30 asciilifeform: life continues.

20:23:25 mircea_popescu: so in short : there's not going to be external solutions to internal problems

20:23:42 mircea_popescu: no matter how you bang on it, the shit chip won't suddenly start dropping magic packets.

20:23:45 mircea_popescu: makes sense neh ?

20:24:20 bounce: currently I think the effect is a bit midway. much larger bulk of apes, lower relative yield of persons despite much better all around education(!), still a net absolute plus, but in a sense a disappointing one

20:24:39 mircea_popescu: ah but consider the matter further.

20:25:04 mircea_popescu: a child is conceived. he is healthy. inside his cranial cavity, among water, thin strings of protein run every which way.

20:25:14 mircea_popescu: another child, not healthy. inside his cranial cavity, slightly more water.

20:25:35 bounce: bit of a... paradox perhaps, that improved life circumstances yield a better baseline but a lower top yield

20:25:39 mircea_popescu: and yet... that 2nd brain will never function. all it takes is a little more doping and suddenly you *don't * have a semiconductor

20:25:56 mircea_popescu: you'll have to argue for that better baseline. what's better about it ?

20:27:49 bounce: emergence of a middle class was a bit of a giveaway. increased life expectancy, better literacy all-around, lots of little stuff. life got a lot shinier for a great many people, to the point of bringing a great many more people in the world.

20:28:59 mircea_popescu: so let me randomly pick one.

20:29:08 mircea_popescu: "increased literacy" ? how, when ?

20:29:21 mircea_popescu: this never happened, seriously. you seen that early 1900s test for ohio if memory serves highschoolers ?

20:30:08 bounce: http://www-958.ibm.com/software/analytics/manyeyes/datasets/percentage-of-literacy-in-the-1600/versions/3

20:30:09 assbot: Many Eyes : Percentage of Literacy in the 1600's-1700's

20:30:34 mircea_popescu: no.

20:31:02 bounce: meaning that fully half the people couldn't read in the 1700s, where it's now closer to just about all of them who can read.

20:31:04 mircea_popescu: you don't get to measure literacy as counted by j h newman with "literacy" as counted by some fuckardacy.

20:32:38 assbot: The CrowHouse

20:33:41 jurov: i propose using s.qntra shares as payment for fraudsters credits, upon which they are irreversibly destroyed

20:33:51 bounce: I think you're a bit spoiled here; try and compare reddit derpage and tardery with the complete inability to even follow the simplest instructions when they're paid to do exactly that in places with real modern day rampant illiteracy

20:34:16 mircea_popescu: comparing modern day idiocy in africa with the white areas of 1800 ios nonsense

20:34:23 jurov: however, then the owners share will increase indefinitely

20:34:38 mircea_popescu: romania was in the shitter in 1984, and has more gold per capita than most states today. all it too k was getting rid of the soviets.

20:34:49 mircea_popescu: meanwhile, africa had no soviets, it was and will remain in the shitter.

20:35:08 mircea_popescu: jurov what, not complex enough already ?

20:37:55 jurov: even bitcoins can be irreversibly destroyed

20:38:12 jurov: but s.qntr shares would outlive the stars or such

20:38:21 jurov: "D

20:38:48 jurov: just my brainfarts

20:40:16 jurov: what can be infinitely created, should be destroyable

20:40:32 asciilifeform: 'literacy' as understood by extant managerial civilization (usa, friends, imitators) is simply the ability to fill out forms and perform other simple mechanics of the giant meat computer of bureaucracy.

20:40:36 BingoBoingo: But at least it is only countably infinite!

20:41:25 jurov: asciilifeform it was ability to follow written instructions,no?

20:41:25 asciilifeform: africa had no soviets << vanishing the thieves and dekulakizers is not enough, one has to actually... produce wealth

20:42:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform one has to have a whole lotta things. literacy is a good start, of course. the actual kind.

20:43:14 asciilifeform: we don't really know how to make 'more and more' actual people. to figure it out, would have to rewind to when they were mostly exterminated and go from there.

20:43:26 asciilifeform: and who even said we need more and more. just that there be some.

20:44:00 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i have an experimentally verified method.

20:44:31 mircea_popescu: it is exhausting but not particularly difficult or complex.

20:44:47 asciilifeform: experimentally verified << ahaha, but does it work with Sr-90 in the atmosphere.

20:44:53 asciilifeform: and other modern nuances.

20:45:06 asciilifeform: this is why i don't like to say 'experimentally verified' re history.

20:46:18 mircea_popescu: works just fine. you start with women in their 20s, self selected. you beat and humiliate them into shape. five to ten years later, people emerge of this.

20:46:26 mircea_popescu: yield is well above a third, too.

20:46:35 asciilifeform: is this how we bake, e.g., a new james clerk maxwell?

20:46:40 asciilifeform: carl friedrich gauss ?

20:46:47 mircea_popescu: this is too soon to tell.

20:47:07 mircea_popescu: the most we have to go on is that while the recent aberrations produced neither of those,

20:48:28 asciilifeform: or - it does. 'can you play violin? don't know - haven't tried yet.'

20:49:15 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform fun fact : rabies doesn't kill per se. current therapy consists of essentially freezing the brain while the virus is flushed out by the immune system

20:49:21 asciilifeform: yes.

20:49:23 mircea_popescu: the drainage sometimes actually works

20:49:26 asciilifeform: widely known, i think.

20:49:39 mircea_popescu: not that widely, it's recent and still experimental therapy afaik

20:49:44 asciilifeform: but - for infection, not congenital aberration.

20:50:09 asciilifeform: i get the point, yes

20:50:10 mircea_popescu: except the most common form of congenital malformation is fixed with ties.

20:50:50 *: asciilifeform still puzzled on how adding a fraudsters post to qntra fixes the broken concept of 'news.' but perhaps is simply not the target audience ?

20:51:30 mircea_popescu: whadda ya mean ?

20:51:55 asciilifeform: the latest piece.

21:00:20 mike_c: you've done worse. i swear you posted a couple articles of gobbedly gook that had secret messages.

21:00:28 mircea_popescu: jurov why would they ?

21:00:36 mircea_popescu: this wasn't a time when theatre was ancient and respected.

21:00:48 mircea_popescu: no, they went to the theatre like you come here. because it's new and cool and it speaks to you and you can afford to.

21:00:49 jurov: no other pastime?

21:01:01 jurov: and executions weren't every day, too

21:01:11 mircea_popescu: mike_c that wasn't worse, those you could identify as such

21:01:20 mircea_popescu: no other passtime ?! you kidding me ?

21:01:25 mike_c: i still haven't identified the secret message.

21:01:33 mircea_popescu: they had more then than you have now for crying out loud. for one thing, the street was fun

21:01:48 mircea_popescu: people. harlots and scamps and duchesses and everything.

21:02:12 mircea_popescu: you could entertain yourself indefinitely just following the yakking.

21:02:25 jurov: well, theatre was extension of the street. and maybe they explained it to each other

21:02:29 asciilifeform: go find the 'broadside ballads' of the time, for example.

21:02:31 mircea_popescu: maybe thgey did.

21:02:51 mircea_popescu: but the fact that they did already speaks, does it not.

21:03:24 jurov: yes. still very different from understanding the text as is
