00:00:18 benkay: a contract covering work for pay is an interesting beast. should it include an address for payment so that when published in the event of breach anyone can verify that payment was not made?

00:00:37 benkay: this is a purely theoretical question.

00:00:53 mircea_popescu: up to the parties.

00:01:06 mircea_popescu: it's a field in which a lot of experimental work still has to be poured before we really know

00:01:14 benkay: and jurov how dare you intimate that anyone sent me any btc?! i live in the states! they'd put me in the gasenwagen!

00:01:30 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 10 @ 0.0220031 = 0.22 BTC [-]

00:01:33 benkay: i disavow receipt of any btc.

00:04:22 danielpbarron: i include the address in the signed contract for exactly that reason

00:06:18 benkay: hey princess.

00:06:22 benkay: !up hecate

00:06:31 benkay: handles are getting creative.

00:10:44 benkay: are there any -assets blessed crypto-only exchanges?

00:11:21 benkay: !up princessnell

00:11:27 princessnell: ty

00:12:02 mircea_popescu: !up hecate

00:12:04 princessnell: have u seen this gem? http://pastebin.com/Zt7fBtRp

00:12:04 assbot: Open letter to federal scum - Pastebin.com

00:12:09 benkay: d'oh

00:12:16 mircea_popescu: princessnell yes.

00:12:49 mircea_popescu: what the fuck does that mean, another 30 minutes

00:14:43 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 10 @ 0.0220031 = 0.22 BTC [-]

00:15:11 benkay: princessnell: is that real life?

00:16:23 princessnell: benkay 'if you see it in MOTHERBOARD, it's so'

00:17:00 artifexd: I could really use some advice. I find myself in a position that I, honestly, never expected.

00:17:16 artifexd: The company for which I work is being bought.

00:17:43 artifexd: It is a small company. Less than 20 people.

00:18:11 artifexd: Any thoughts or advice for me? Is there any extra information I can provide that would help get better advice?

00:20:36 mircea_popescu: off twitter : Her: ?Will you try a veggie burger for lunch?? Me: ?Sure, if the bun's made out of steak.?

00:20:59 mircea_popescu: artifexd you could help a lot by explaining what exactly are you trying to get advice for

00:21:11 dignork: artifexd: M&A is fun, if you are bought by a bigger company, try to inflate your position now, might get moar money

00:21:16 mircea_popescu: sleeping with the acquirer's wife ? keeping your red stapler ? how to cook a veggie burger with a steak bun ?

00:21:35 artifexd: That's the thing. I don't know what advice I need.

00:21:45 mircea_popescu: well are you trying to solve any particular problem ?

00:22:00 mircea_popescu: do you have any sort of goal ?

00:22:04 mircea_popescu: help us out here lol

00:22:16 artifexd: Goal.... thinking...

00:22:39 artifexd: Goal number 1: As much money in a lump payment as possible.

00:22:40 Azelphur: mircea_popescu: I wanna know how to cook a veggie burger with a steak bun, sounds tasty.

00:23:13 artifexd: Goal number 2: Maintain the autonomy that I have enjoyed for the last few years.

00:23:28 artifexd: Goal number 3: A raise.

00:23:56 artifexd: I figure the lump sum payment I get from stock options is already set, right?

00:24:58 dignork: artifexd: stock options, check taxing, you might want to hold them off

00:25:49 artifexd: How? Until when?

00:26:47 artifexd: It isn't an amount that will make me independently wealthy, but it will greatly improve my current situation.

00:26:49 dignork: artifexd: i'm not a real accountant :), but you should consult one, move to IRA maybe, dunno.

00:27:34 artifexd: "Inflate my position" What does that mean? The company is small enough that everyone knows my contributions.

00:28:24 dignork: for a larger company, your previous "rank" might change your salary, so in your interests to achieve highest rank possible

00:29:10 dignork: it's a game though, if you are too high-ranked, they might fire you, due to position duplicity

00:29:44 dignork: so don't be a CFO for example

00:30:29 artifexd: If it makes a difference, I'm a programmer/coder/developer. My official (self-appointed) title is "Deviser and Artifex".

00:30:34 mircea_popescu: artifexd listen, you need to hire a tax attorney at this point.

00:30:46 mircea_popescu: there's no way you can get pertinent advice without the details.

00:31:04 artifexd: That *is* good advice.

00:31:04 mircea_popescu: blow a few grand on hiring someone, it';s the right time to do it.

00:31:22 mircea_popescu: you'll discover, even if you overpay today, you'll discover in time you wouldn't have undone it.

00:31:54 artifexd: Correction: That *is* pertinent advice.

00:32:00 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 300 @ 0.0042 = 1.26 BTC [-] {2}

00:33:24 mircea_popescu: and other than that, have an open and relaxed negotiation strategy. tell the acquirer's expert that you aren't interested in anything but a position with the authonomy you enjoyed previously, and they can let you know.

00:35:19 artifexd: Any recommendations for what to ask them? I mean, what are things that are in question when one company acquires another? For example, it didn't even occur to me that my salary would change, as mentioned by dignork

00:35:44 mike_c: is the sale a good thing or is it because the company is struggling?

00:36:38 artifexd: A good thing.

00:36:39 dignork: artifexd: some larger company have lame rules defining allowed salalry limits per rank, hope your case would be different

00:36:51 dignork: company=companies

00:37:09 artifexd: It has long been the stated goal of our ceo to get bought.

00:37:26 artifexd: "Long" meaning "since I came onboard"

00:37:51 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: wtf, how do you 'patch secret bug' in open source product ?!

00:40:53 mircea_popescu: official core devs !!1

00:41:12 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: re: ssd - if there were a hardware raid that worked well with ssd of some description (or, for that matter, vice-versa) i would buy it. on account of hating spindle noise.

00:41:44 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i dunno what your noise issue is man, i used to live with the large ventilated felix

00:41:50 mircea_popescu: sort-of like a large mining rig, except more useless.

00:42:10 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 203 @ 0.00420001 = 0.8526 BTC [+]

00:42:12 asciilifeform: why not simply connect the extant ones? basic problem is that ssd units from same batch tend to die in unison, when used in just about any variant of raid (why - exercise for reader)

00:43:36 mircea_popescu: this is why you don't use same-manuf for ssds

00:43:41 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: live with the large ventilated felix << http://www.nzeldes.com/HOC/IronFelix.htm ???!

00:43:43 assbot: "Iron Felix" meets the Odhner calculator

00:44:07 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform no lol, this closet sized pdp-clone wannabe

00:45:02 mircea_popescu: apparently it doesn't even exist on the internet it was so sikrit

00:45:50 mircea_popescu: http://isabellelorelai.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/1cifa1.jpg

00:45:52 mircea_popescu: there you go

00:46:12 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lol! who even knows how many soviet pdp.

00:46:53 mircea_popescu: this was actually homebrew, originally made by the atomic physics folks at magurele

00:47:02 mircea_popescu: eventually it just became a toy for students to play with

00:47:18 mircea_popescu: but anyway. loud. who cares!

00:47:23 asciilifeform: how'd you end up sleeping on (in? with?) it ?

00:47:43 mircea_popescu: cause it was in the physics lab and i was sleepy

00:47:50 asciilifeform: aha

00:47:58 mircea_popescu: they had this huge round air vent thing, kinda comfortable to sit in

00:49:25 penguirker: New blog post: http://cascadianhacker.com/blog/2014/05/20_this-is-why-distributed-exchanges-are-doomed-to-failure.html

00:49:25 assbot: this is why distributed exchanges are doomed to failure

00:50:33 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, decay experiments, i dunno if you know, are - or were ? - this particular brand of evil.

00:50:47 mircea_popescu: "well, by midnight we should have about twelve ticks or so"

00:50:59 mircea_popescu: time's 11:30 and the thing ticked once...

00:51:11 mircea_popescu: come to think about it, quite exactly like mining.

00:51:17 asciilifeform: lol yes. i did much the same thing, in a vastly different context (scintillation counter, bio. assay)

00:51:46 asciilifeform: re: fans/spindles: i know folks of two opposing schools of thought re: comp noise. variant 1 - powerful machine, must sing, like 'harley davidson'; variant 2 - want quiet, like german bmw, not air-cooled 'trabant'

00:52:01 mircea_popescu: ya i guess im more like 1

00:52:01 asciilifeform: (i'm with '2')

00:52:06 mircea_popescu: heretic

00:52:50 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: you'd really love my Symbolics 3620 then.

00:52:55 mircea_popescu: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Măgurele << romania's version of cheliabinks

00:52:56 assbot: Mgurele - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

00:52:58 asciilifeform: unambiguous 'harley'

00:55:08 asciilifeform: (for those innocent: http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/22982/Symbolics-3620 )

00:55:08 assbot: Symbolics 3620 - Computing History

00:56:55 mircea_popescu: pity it never caught on

00:57:26 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this is actually an interesting historical topic. these people never wanted to 'catch on' in the modern sense

00:57:37 asciilifeform: they made 'ferraris', so to speak

00:57:46 asciilifeform: then the only folks who could afford them - went broke.

00:58:06 mircea_popescu: i suspect the problem had a lot more to do with them being plagued by bob becks than anything intentional.

00:58:09 asciilifeform: (reagan's 'star wars' and the associated pig trough)

00:58:35 asciilifeform: there's a paper floating about for many years, arguing that SMBX died of gross mismanagement

00:59:18 mircea_popescu: sounds credible to me.

00:59:36 asciilifeform: and here's weinreb (recently deceased. one of the founders) on death of same.

00:59:37 asciilifeform: http://danweinreb.org/blog/why-did-symbolics-fail

00:59:38 assbot: Why Did Symbolics Fail? | Software and Innovation

01:00:21 mircea_popescu: weinreb's passing actually makes me think about the following

01:00:27 mircea_popescu: suppose the year is 2215.

01:00:37 asciilifeform: i used to be a quasi-serious student of the subject of 'why smbx dead' - until i realized that i'm getting nowhere, everyone i want to talk to is buried.

01:00:43 mircea_popescu: willy-nilly the various blogs left by various people important in 2015, if still extant,

01:01:05 mircea_popescu: have gone through a long list of conservatorships and whatnot

01:01:21 mircea_popescu: this isn't something we're really too apt to handle, the material published on their own blogs by meanwhile long dead people

01:01:26 mircea_popescu: i wonder how will it work out

01:01:43 asciilifeform: naggum's material comes to mind as one example

01:01:56 asciilifeform: (no real organization, but encyclopaedic completeness at least)

01:01:56 mircea_popescu: right. the time's advanced enough for this problem to start showing at the edges

01:02:00 mircea_popescu: in a way it didn't in say 1994.

01:02:07 mircea_popescu: soon it'll become quite massive.

01:02:44 mircea_popescu: i mean even the notion of a blog is maybe 20 years old tops. that's within reasonable lifespan.

01:02:50 mircea_popescu: but approaching the cusp

01:02:53 asciilifeform: the problem is made somewhat more dire by the fact that the folks traditionally interested in the subject ('library sciences' types) - as i understand - didn't make the jump to electronics really

01:03:13 mircea_popescu: nor do they have any sort of a clue as to how and why and what and so on

01:03:29 mircea_popescu: we're perhaps approaching a strange "collapse of the roman empire" situation from an entirely different angle

01:04:12 asciilifeform: ted nelson (for all his faults) predicted this very same thing, in the 1960s

01:04:19 mircea_popescu: "At the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab, fifteen researchers shared a computer with a .001 GHz CPU and .002 GB of main memory."

01:04:25 mircea_popescu: gotta love the guy's style.

01:05:02 mircea_popescu: "We had great success amongst primary customers. I think we could have found a lot more of them if our marketing had been better. For example, did you know that Symbolics had a world-class software development environment for Fortran, C, Ada, and other popular languages, with amazing semantics-understanding in the editor, a powerful debugger, the ability for the languages to call each other, and so on? We put a lot of

01:05:02 assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!

01:05:02 mircea_popescu: work into those, but they were never publicized or advertised."

01:05:15 mircea_popescu: ok, i win. bob beck sunk symbolix.

01:05:23 asciilifeform: wtf is a bob beck

01:05:38 asciilifeform: bob the goatfucker ?

01:06:19 mircea_popescu: " We at Symbolics were slow to acknowledge this. We believed our own ?dogma? even as it became less true. It was embedded in our corporate culture. If you disputed it, your co-workers felt that you ?just didn?t get it? and weren?t a member of the clan, so to speak. This stifled objective analysis. (This is a very easy problem to fall into ? don?t let it happen to you!)"

01:06:20 mircea_popescu: heh.

01:06:26 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform http://fraudsters.com/2014/the-public-burning-of-bob-beck/

01:06:27 assbot: The public burning of Bob Beck pe fraudsters - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.

01:06:35 asciilifeform: aha!

01:06:57 asciilifeform: re: weibreb's style...

01:07:10 *: asciilifeform dusts off his copy of the Chinanual

01:07:13 asciilifeform: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/scaled/landing/875/ayjgar.jpg

01:07:23 mircea_popescu: Also, a lot of Symbolics sales were based on the promise of rule-based expert systems, of which the early examples were written in Lisp. Rule-based expert systems are a fine thing, and are widely used today (but often not in Lisp). But they were tremendously over-hyped by certain academics and by their industry, resulting in a huge backlash around 1988. ?Artificial Intelligence? fell out of favor; the ?AI Winter

01:07:23 mircea_popescu: ? had arrived. << yeah.

01:07:25 asciilifeform: (aka 'chinual')

01:07:34 mircea_popescu: they mismanaged pretty much every aspect of market dominance.

01:08:03 mircea_popescu: one should make a jobs vs noftsker case study

01:09:26 asciilifeform: titanically great product (to the point that, imho, it has never been equalled) but they rode a very particular wave of bezzola, ended up going down with it.

01:09:31 mircea_popescu: course... i seem to also remember some massive rms drama

01:09:38 asciilifeform: mostly in head of rms

01:09:46 mircea_popescu: isn;t it all ?

01:09:56 asciilifeform: http://danweinreb.org/blog/rebuttal-to-stallmans-story-about-the-formation-of-symbolics-and-lmi

01:09:57 assbot: Rebuttal to Stallmans Story About The Formation of Symbolics and LMI | Software and Innovation

01:10:26 mircea_popescu: "Meanwhile, back at Symbolics, there were huge internal management conflicts, leading to the resignation of much of top management, who were replaced by the board of directors with new CEO?s who did not do a good job" i dunno..

01:11:15 mircea_popescu: "Symbolics signed long-term leases on big new offices and a new factory, anticipating growth that did not come, and were unable to sublease the properties due to office-space gluts, which drained a great deal of money."

01:11:21 mircea_popescu: the only missing ingredient so far heh.

01:12:40 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 100 @ 0.0041 = 0.41 BTC [-]

01:14:02 mircea_popescu: "or example, remember that the first viable Windows O/S, release 3.1, came out in in 1990"

01:14:05 mircea_popescu: wait, 3.1 was viable ?!

01:14:10 mircea_popescu: in what sense of viability lol

01:14:33 asciilifeform: viable in the butugychag sense. you can live there for a bit...

01:14:47 asciilifeform: with external prodding.

01:15:20 asciilifeform: so, can live, with steady supply of inmates

01:15:41 mircea_popescu: right.

01:20:01 mircea_popescu: "And while I?m setting the record straight, the original (TECO-based) Emacs was created and designed by Guy L. Steele Jr. and David Moon. After they had it working, and it had become established as the standard text editor at the AI lab, Stallman took over its maintenance."

01:20:02 mircea_popescu: ahahaha

01:20:08 mircea_popescu: so THIS is the actual root of the emacs wars ?

01:20:18 asciilifeform: this is a fairly well-known fact (i thought)

01:20:51 mircea_popescu: well not by me

01:21:17 mircea_popescu: o look at that asciilifeform... not a whole lot of confidence.

01:21:33 asciilifeform: lol

01:23:24 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the bob beck thing is epic

01:23:31 asciilifeform: where do they even get them.

01:23:40 mircea_popescu: quite

01:23:48 mircea_popescu: i'll tell you :

01:24:08 mircea_popescu: there's these things people like doing, like say rubbing their scrotum. and then there's these other things people don't like doing, like cooking and cleanning.

01:24:22 mircea_popescu: clearly thus therefore cooking and cleanning is stupid, and definitely not something one should learn or study or do well

01:24:42 mircea_popescu: because nobody ever has to put effort where they already suck, because they don't suck, it's just the problem that's unworthy of attention.

01:24:57 mircea_popescu: and so they end up with the stupidest contributor doing the most important parts : interfacing with the world.

01:25:13 mircea_popescu: it is very easy to interface with a computer : it's pinned down in place, mechanical and stupider than you.

01:25:33 mircea_popescu: it is insanely difficult to interface with the world, mostly because the world is principally made out of people smarter than you will ever be.

01:25:34 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'любишь кататься люби и саночки возить' (proverb. 'like sledding? like pulling sled then, too.'

01:25:36 mircea_popescu: and so... bob beck.

10:34:13 mircea_popescu: and if it becomes socially acceptable bitcoin will become entirely sealed off to the poor.

10:38:57 fluffypony: for that amount of money even the most straight-laced individual would have a hard time not wanting to lift a little

10:39:10 fluffypony: and once you've stolen a little it snowballs into "how can I steal the whole lot"

10:39:21 fluffypony: the reason this doesn't happen in big companies is because of the number of people involved

10:39:26 fluffypony: you'd have to collude with so many

10:39:36 mircea_popescu: fluffypony except itdoes happen in big companies.

10:39:39 fluffypony: when you have 1 person holding millions?

10:39:51 mircea_popescu: the only reason it doesn't happen, as long as it doesn't, is that they don't actually have access to it.

10:40:02 mircea_popescu: basic corp governance, nobody may write checks on the corp account.

10:40:10 fluffypony: yes exactly

10:40:47 mircea_popescu: corp only pays specific types of things to specific types of people and that's that.

10:41:03 mircea_popescu: which is why random nobodies can't b2b. because for the corp, it's too much like simply being stolen from

10:56:56 fluffypony: the reality is that the market is poised for movement

10:57:20 fluffypony: and then someone tried to start a rally, wasn't massively successful, but it picked up a bit of steam

10:57:30 fluffypony: broke through the wall at 475, and stopped short of breaking through 500

10:57:48 bitcoingirl: how does someone try to start a rally? what did they do exactly to move the market?

10:58:32 fluffypony: bitcoingirl: buy a significant quantity of Bitcoins, setup structured buy walls below market value to create the illusion of demand, all sorts of things can be done to try get it going

11:00:03 fluffypony: bitcoingirl: like if someone puts up a bunch of offers to buy Bitcoin at $450 each totalling $200k, when the market is at $460, that's a buy wall

11:00:23 fluffypony: it can make sellers move their offers up higher because they think it's an indicator of demand

11:00:48 fluffypony: but it can also backfire and people can sell into the buy wall faster than the trader can pull it

13:03:22 BingoBoingo: I think electrum has an offline solution for transaction signing.

16:09:55 fluffypony: ja seems that way

16:10:02 cgcardona: rithm: care to explain?

16:10:10 fluffypony: we all changed our passwords earlier, someone posted a link about an eBay notice going out

16:10:19 fluffypony: didn't know why tho

16:10:23 rithm: the metal loses value as a function of time and the bitcoin does not?

16:11:47 cgcardona: yea I'm not thinking of moving from btc to gold as an investment. the bulk of my assets are in btc and will remain there. i was more thinking getting some precious metals just as collectors items.

21:00:15 mircea_popescu: anyway, a race is not merely a degree of genetic relatedness. a race is a culturally recognised such degree. which is why you can't make the nell race just by having a lot of kids with random people.

21:00:53 princessnell: that is the point of the book! genes + cultural social behaviors

21:01:02 mircea_popescu: aite.

21:01:25 mircea_popescu: anyway, as far as white is concerned, the bulgarians are probably more important than the us folk.

21:38:39 mod6: yeah, srsly, run fast.

21:38:44 fluffypony: why

21:38:50 fluffypony: an ANC with accrual sorts that out

21:38:59 rithm: my wife of x years has no interest in mine

21:39:10 rithm: why does his non-wife of 0 years so interested

21:39:26 fluffypony: my assets were established in our ANC before we got married, and so were my wife's

21:39:33 mike_c: this seems like an easy problem. give her whatever percentage she wants and adjust the amount of coin she knows about accordingly.

21:39:41 mircea_popescu: princessnell pretty clear trollbait neh ?
