14:47:14 ThickAsThieves: bitcoin is disempowering gangsters he says

14:47:15 mjr_: entertaining, like monkeys drinking their own piss entertaining?

14:47:18 dexX7: i think he wanted to hover around the question

14:48:54 ThickAsThieves: this lady "it's much easier to buy drugs with bitcoin than cash right?"

14:48:59 ThickAsThieves: why are people so retarded

14:49:21 mircea_popescu: does she want to know if it's easier to trade bitcoins for drugs than it is to trade bitcoin for dollars ?

14:49:27 mircea_popescu: by now it probably is.

14:49:54 ThickAsThieves: how come amir says froo, instead of through

14:49:56 ThickAsThieves: hehe

14:57:07 mircea_popescu: i wouldn't bet on that

14:57:13 mircea_popescu: the guy can outdo huimself

14:57:20 kakobrekla: its over

15:02:30 ThickAsThieves: TSA monetizes: http://www.wired.com/autopia/2013/07/tsa-precheck/

15:03:10 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves they're running out of dough.

15:04:38 mjoiii: Quick Ahmed! I need $85 right now or the jihad is off!

15:04:43 ThickAsThieves: this is a trend, getting charged for shit you don't want

15:05:08 ThickAsThieves: it's the next step after freemium

15:05:13 mjr_: lol nice

15:05:21 mircea_popescu: ya srsly. i suppose the entire system relies on suicide bombers not being able to save 85 bux

15:05:28 mjr_: i am pretty sure that my govt has been charging me for shit i don't want for a while

15:05:42 jcpham: HAPPY SYSADMIN DAY

15:05:48 ThickAsThieves: we pay for ads more and more too

15:06:12 mjr_: here is a kinda stupid video http://www.ted.com/talks/paul_kemp_robertson_bitcoin_sweat_tide_meet_the_future_of_branded_currency.html?utm_medium=on.ted.com-twitter&utm_content=addthis-custom&utm_campaign=&source=twitter&utm_source=t.co&awesm=on.ted.com_eg9h#.UfJ4eOPYHoV.twitter

15:06:35 pankkake: that's their business model: create problems and then offer to fix it (for more of your money)

15:06:46 ThickAsThieves: i saw that vid

15:06:52 mjr_: ThickAsThieves: and here is something that you will find interesting (also mircea_popescu)

15:06:53 mjr_: http://unitscale.com/mb/bomb-in-the-garden/

15:06:54 pankkake: jcpham: cool. too bad I'm not one anymore

15:06:56 ozbot: Matthew Butterick: The Bomb in the Garden

15:07:01 pankkake: can't threaten my user to give me gifts

15:07:22 mircea_popescu: pankkake sort of like web antiviruses.

15:07:34 mjr_: the second one is about content monetization, and ads, from the perspective of a designer, he has a cool example of the shit we put up with

15:07:41 pankkake: web antiviruses? :o

15:07:58 mjr_: ransomware is a more extreme example

15:08:03 pankkake: right

15:08:12 ThickAsThieves: i think there is a deeper issue with design quality

15:08:33 ThickAsThieves: more than one issue really

15:08:35 ThickAsThieves: but

15:08:36 mjr_: that was his argument, in his paper

15:08:46 mjr_: that it is structural and comes from two main flaws

15:08:59 ThickAsThieves: first, people that aren't good at design, are given a say

15:09:27 ThickAsThieves: this is more compicated than it sounds

15:09:37 ThickAsThieves: because when you ask someone what they think about a design

15:09:46 ThickAsThieves: what they hear is

15:09:59 ThickAsThieves: "find something bad about this"

15:10:07 mjr_: i agree

15:10:16 mjr_: but also, read his article, i think you'll agree with his points

15:10:29 ThickAsThieves: second, there is not enough distinction between UIX and aesthetic

15:10:35 ThickAsThieves: i will

15:10:38 ThickAsThieves: just ranting

15:10:42 ThickAsThieves: :)

15:10:46 mjr_: np

15:10:54 mjr_: his rant goes deeper than that

15:11:06 mjr_: its basically a cry for the web to maintain relevance

15:11:14 ThickAsThieves: i have background in design (identity, layout, typography)

15:11:27 mjr_: his point is that it will die, apps are becoming the new de facto way for people to consume online content

15:11:36 mjr_: you will appreciate his article then

15:11:37 ThickAsThieves: that will die too

15:11:46 mjr_: not necessarily

15:11:53 mjr_: apps are much easier to monetize

15:11:57 mjr_: meaning less reliance on ads

15:12:13 ThickAsThieves: there will always be consolidation and deconsruction

15:12:21 mjr_: also, you can control the entirety of your app, you don't have to worry about what your end user will be using

15:12:23 kakobrekla: apps are evil.

15:12:39 pankkake: most "apps" are actually frontends to a website

15:12:44 mjr_: i can design for ios devices, and know exactly what my users will see

15:12:47 mjr_: yes

15:12:53 mjr_: but i am controlling the user experience

15:13:02 mjr_: as i know exactly how that "website" will be displayed

15:13:25 ThickAsThieves: and what about android?

15:13:27 mjr_: not to say that most designers/developers actually take advantage

15:13:29 ThickAsThieves: and w RT

15:13:34 ThickAsThieves: and blackberry

15:13:35 mjr_: i can also design specifically for android

15:13:42 mjr_: and know exactly what they will see

15:13:47 ThickAsThieves: it's just a rearrangement

15:13:54 pankkake: well the good thing is third-party application which give back some control back to the user

15:14:11 mjr_: i'm saying, on the web, there is a lack of standards

15:14:18 mjr_: and a very poor monetization strategy

15:14:18 ThickAsThieves: people dont use the control they have on the web

15:14:23 ThickAsThieves: browsers can do things

15:14:26 mjr_: of course they can

15:14:36 kakobrekla: oh, there is a standard

15:14:39 kakobrekla: just noone gives a shit.

15:14:56 mjr_: unenforced standards can't really be called standards

15:15:03 mjr_: try ignoring ipv4 standards

15:15:05 mjr_: see how far you get

15:15:15 mjr_: try ignoring ios standards for a more applicable example

15:15:31 kakobrekla: i am completley ignoring ios yeah

15:15:34 mjr_: only on web pages can i say, eh, fuck that, i don't feel like it

15:16:04 ThickAsThieves: there are compromises though

15:16:07 kakobrekla: that is just because browsers are so smart

15:16:12 ThickAsThieves: like what will apple allow?

15:16:19 kakobrekla: and operating systems are stupid

15:30:55 ThickAsThieves: I gave up trying to make the web pretty because everyone that was willing to pay me wanted to make it ugly

15:42:47 tiberiusix: content monetization is needed when cheapskates dont want to pay useage fees

15:44:55 benkay: now there's an arbitrage play

15:45:11 benkay: stop fucking around with play "markets" and play "assets" and actually arb, eh?

15:49:30 dexX7: kinda old, but relevant imho: https://bips.me/press/release/20130723

15:50:10 ThickAsThieves: cool

15:54:14 mircea_popescu: change and revolutionize ?

15:54:51 mircea_popescu: BIPS?s technology is a world-leading product

15:54:57 mircea_popescu: i have no fucking idea what it even is. what is it ?

15:55:09 dexX7: a payment processor like bitpay.com

15:55:29 mircea_popescu: mkay.

15:55:34 pankkake: world-leading as in "we're number of two, out of two"?

15:55:55 mircea_popescu: so basically this means "hi, we're too stupid to have followed mp's get off gox orders in april. we're doinfg it in august"

15:56:03 dexX7: from coindesk: "BIPS is a two-year-old payment processor cited by Crunchbase as the largest provider of bitcoin payments in Europe."

15:56:03 mircea_popescu: world leading & revolutionizing alright.

15:56:38 dexX7: Dealing with Mt. Gox was becoming increasingly unworkable, he told CoinDesk. Withdrawal times were the biggest bugbear. “In BIPS’ case, each withdrawal had a pending period of over eight weeks. This was devastating on BIPS’ fiat buffer, as we process withdrawals in 1 to 5 business days,” he complained.

15:56:57 mircea_popescu: i can see it.

16:18:09 ThickAsThieves: hehe

16:19:35 mircea_popescu: it's called mathematical induction

16:20:01 pankkake: reminds me of https://xkcd.com/386/

16:20:36 mircea_popescu: kinda

16:20:48 mircea_popescu: except in soviet romania bed comes to you

16:21:38 mircea_popescu: "I will attempt to follow this thread and the crosspost on reddit throughout the day while I'm at work, and I will be able to respond more thoroughly to questions and comments after about 9pm UTC."

16:21:51 mircea_popescu: anyone wanan bet what he does for a living "?

16:24:15 dexX7: you have no information about his timezone, do you?

16:26:03 mircea_popescu: nope

16:26:46 mircea_popescu: but he's paying interest on shares, so it's pretty clear how much he has to do with this line of work.

16:29:12 pankkake: I have a hard time understanding how his thing works

16:29:38 jcpham: read your chicken bones

16:38:20 mircea_popescu: pankkake here's the cliffnotes : he's seen the brendio/deprived attempt at a synthetic short

16:38:33 mircea_popescu: and he figures he can do it better. because internet.

16:40:39 dexX7: "For example, (these numbers are just illustrative) you might consider 1 share of ASICMINER-SHORT.LOAN = 1 share of ASICMINER-PT = 100 shares of TAT.ASICMINER. The shares will be directyl exchangeable (send 100-shares of TAT.ASICMINER to the Loan Fund, receive 1 share of the loan fund; or the reverse)." -> this would enable the conversion between tat.am and am-pt

16:56:47 ThickAsThieves: <dexX7> this would enable the conversion between tat.am and am-pt <<< his loss

17:16:53 mjr_: hehehe

17:17:19 mjr_: unfortunately, that proof will prob be wasted on some idiot who hasn't figured out how to use google

17:17:54 mjr_: people are idiots, unfortunately, and talk about money usually brings out the most idiocy

17:18:04 mjr_: "hahaha, you are just describing a barter system"

17:18:07 mjr_: ...

17:18:20 mjr_: like dollars for something? i barter dollars, in exchange for your thing

17:18:39 mjr_: people imbue dollars (and by extension bitcoins) with all sorts of magical properties

18:51:17 ThickAsThieves: scams make are very profitable, whatcha mean?

18:51:23 ThickAsThieves: -make

18:52:03 mjoiii: Why cooler?

18:52:40 ThickAsThieves: cuz copycats are always better than the source

18:53:57 mjoiii: Don't know man, first mover advantage sure has been working out well for AM

18:54:29 ThickAsThieves: just to be clear, this is all sarcasm

18:55:10 mjoiii: Yeah, wasn't going to take "copycats are cool" as investment advise.

18:55:45 ThickAsThieves: and as general disclaimer, nothing i say is investment advice, ever ;)

18:56:00 mjoiii: What? Oh no!

18:57:30 Rulother_: Guess my tablet died

19:01:07 [\]: loans are gifts.

19:04:55 Rulother_: Do any of you use Yubikey?

19:05:21 Rulother_: Can't recall all too many sites that use it, so I'm trying to justify the cost of it.

19:05:27 Rulother_: Already use Google Auth

19:08:50 pankkake: for website authentication only, probably not interesting if you already have google auth

19:09:02 Duffer1: why yubikey if you already google auth?

19:09:21 Duffer1: <3 google auth

19:09:34 Rulother_: Was looking into it is all, wasn't sure if there really was anything it had over Google Auth

19:09:39 kakobrekla: <3 prism auth

19:10:04 pankkake: it's just an algorithm. it's local software - google has no idea what your key is

19:11:22 pankkake: however there are other uses of a yubikey: https://www.yubico.com/2012/12/yubikey-neo-openpgp/ http://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20130616112437

19:11:46 pankkake: though you could do the second one with gauth I guess

19:12:53 thestringpuller: Rulother_: you going to start playing WoW or something?

19:12:53 thestringpuller: lol

19:12:54 thestringpuller: jk

19:13:02 thestringpuller: dude why is AMC going up so high?

19:13:20 Rulother_: Maybe next time string :)

19:13:24 Rulother_: there's still time

19:14:41 Scrat: lets make an asset guild

19:15:03 Scrat: and play the AH

19:15:10 Scrat: troll LFD/5mans

19:16:42 Rulother_: All I did in wow was mine and sell to the AH

19:16:48 Rulother_: and turn sold my gold as well

19:22:42 ThickAsThieves: i'll join the guild

19:23:15 ThickAsThieves: DPS obv

19:23:16 Rulother_: Might as well call it TAT

19:23:51 ThickAsThieves: or do you need a healer?

19:25:48 Rulother_: I suppose

19:27:26 Rulother_: Just Dice is addictive

19:30:46 Rulother_: I likely

19:30:54 benkay: it's amusing that so many of the "asset" players are also inveterate gamblers.

19:31:36 Rulother_: Caught me, made 50% back, so I figured time to withdraw

19:33:42 thestringpuller: !ticker BTCTC ACTIVEMINING

19:33:57 thestringpuller: wow 500 btc today

19:34:06 thestringpuller: ThickAsThieves: where is your bitbet for AMC?

19:36:49 Rulother_: someone is trying to lower the price

19:37:36 [\]: I woudln't say that is trying

19:37:39 [\]: they are..

19:40:33 ThickAsThieves: I started to make a bitbet for them, but it got too tricky to word it

19:40:37 ThickAsThieves: ideas?

19:40:55 ThickAsThieves: I guess we could just bet on the price

19:40:59 Rulother_: what kind of bet are you making?

19:41:12 ThickAsThieves: but i wanted to some how bet around it being a possible scam

19:41:12 FabianB: the timeframe is probably tricky

19:41:21 ThickAsThieves: yes

19:41:39 ThickAsThieves: or we could bet on the yield % on a certain date

19:41:41 Rulother_: A bet that it will crash mid-August and not recover?

19:41:49 ThickAsThieves: but that would be too complicated for AMC fans

19:42:19 ThickAsThieves: i'd have to learn more about AMC to choose the timeline

19:42:25 ThickAsThieves: and i dont want to do that

19:42:26 Rulother_: They said 3-4 weeks until they give out anymore details on their latest business deal

19:42:36 Rulother_: Ken said

19:42:37 Rulother_: So

19:42:39 ThickAsThieves: nice

19:42:50 ThickAsThieves: he's a smart guy

19:42:53 Rulother_: I say around that time, when they don't is when panic sets in

19:42:58 Rulother_: But

19:43:17 Rulother_: I imagine he'll say something within 2 weeks saying they need more time and these people will buy it like BFL

19:43:22 ThickAsThieves: you'd have to extend out to Oct/Nov

19:43:37 Rulother_: Yeah it's tricky like you said

19:43:46 ThickAsThieves: Like AMC will be worth less than .0025 on Dec 1st

19:43:50 ThickAsThieves: or Jan 1st

19:44:03 Rulother_: Long term bet I see

19:45:06 gecko_x2: *chiching*

19:45:28 Rulother_: I know it'll drop to .0045 within 2hrs

19:45:29 gecko_x2: wish i had gone all in at the ipo

19:45:33 gecko_x2: :(

19:45:38 Rulother_: This is just like the time it made it to .0045 the first time

19:48:04 ThickAsThieves: it'll probably hit .01

19:48:26 Rulother_: Sometime, not this weekend, maybe end of next week

19:48:51 Rulother_: .0075 sounds more realstic by end of next week

19:50:17 Rulother_: I'll brb, need a smoke to clear my head.

19:51:02 thestringpuller: ThickAsThieves: AMC is to defraud investors sometime during 2013.

19:51:17 pankkake: way too vague

19:51:20 ThickAsThieves: ends Dec 2014?

19:53:26 ThickAsThieves: the bet needs to be something that can resolve in 1-3mos

19:53:32 ThickAsThieves: or people won't bother

19:53:51 naemsi: why is AMC rallying?

19:54:02 ThickAsThieves: because nitcoin

19:54:05 ThickAsThieves: bitcoin

19:54:12 naemsi: lol

19:54:26 saulimus: investors wanna invest

19:54:41 FabianB: speculators

19:54:42 pankkake: I don't think they promised something in 1-3 months

19:54:48 FabianB: there are better investments

19:54:55 saulimus: like what?

19:55:07 pankkake: so the price could still keep up at least

19:55:15 kakobrekla: lol http://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-based-bitbetex-wagers-on-peer-to-peer-betting-success/

19:55:16 naemsi: I tossed some AM dividends into AMC

19:55:25 pankkake: and dividends will still be negligible

19:55:56 naemsi: I just don't understand why 1) the ipo succeeded, 2) it's doubled-plus since

19:56:11 ThickAsThieves: at this point we should all buy in

19:56:15 ThickAsThieves: pump it to the moon

19:56:22 naemsi: I get the 'because bitcoin' but don't see the news driving the interest

19:56:22 pankkake: the way it succeeded was really weird

19:56:24 ThickAsThieves: obv value is not the game here

19:56:25 Rulother_: I highly encourage that :P

19:56:30 saulimus: naemsi, people anticipate another asicminer?

19:56:50 Rulother_: Damn

19:57:06 ThickAsThieves: it's 10x IPO now

19:57:06 Rulother_: Looks like I'll be buying my new jeep that much sooner then I thought.

19:57:15 saulimus: :D

19:57:16 Rulother_: looool

19:57:30 naemsi: ThickAsThieves: 10x?

19:57:34 ThickAsThieves: this is like a bitcoin gem game

19:57:36 saulimus: obviously irc seems to have an effect on the price :D

19:57:43 ThickAsThieves: yes, it IPO'd at .0005

19:57:51 Rulother_: jesus it is about to hit .006

19:57:57 ThickAsThieves: too slow

19:57:59 Rulother_: yeah

19:59:09 naemsi: ThickAsThieves: I was thinking about the "IPO" or whatever of millions of shares on btct

19:59:22 ThickAsThieves: it existed before that

19:59:47 naemsi: so it was offered on btct at 5x the original price?

19:59:57 ThickAsThieves: yep

19:59:57 pankkake: and people were selling under IPO for weeks

20:00:01 saulimus: amc asks look thin

20:00:19 naemsi: pankkake: yeah, I remember it hovering around .0015

20:02:12 ThickAsThieves: ok i think i'm gonna pump this fucker

20:02:32 saulimus: you have money to spare?

20:02:38 ThickAsThieves: doesnt everyone?

20:02:42 Rulother_: some of that AM money

20:02:44 saulimus: not me. :|

20:02:47 pankkake: I don't :(

20:02:55 saulimus: I just got my btct account.. some days ago?

20:03:02 pankkake: well I was some free btc on btct

20:03:10 gecko_x2: at 0047 i said fuck it, dumped all my AM and went all in

20:03:13 ThickAsThieves: 175BTC can take it to 1

20:03:15 Rulother_: Well, get a coinbase account and buy some btc and go go go

20:03:31 Rulother_: I love you tat

20:03:44 naemsi: how do you see bid/askwalls on btct?

20:03:49 naemsi: in chart form

20:03:51 saulimus: hmm?

20:04:02 gecko_x2: bottom of page

20:04:03 Rulother_: it's at the bottom

20:04:04 pankkake: Market Depth? on the bottom

20:04:12 saulimus: to get to 0.5 you need 8400 BTC

20:04:13 Rulother_: It's not the best

20:04:18 naemsi: ahh lol

20:04:30 saulimus: so 175BTC to 1 doesn't seem right

20:05:26 thestringpuller: BitBetEx is pretty

20:05:36 pankkake: saulimus: btct says 180

20:05:39 thestringpuller: kakobrekla: y u no make bitbet.us more pretty

20:06:07 kakobrekla: cause mpex sets the standard

20:06:28 naemsi: if you hover over the 0.5 bid it says it would take 8445

20:06:38 thestringpuller: mpex is the standard for exchanges

20:06:40 naemsi: 0.5 ask i mean

20:06:43 thestringpuller: moomoo web design

20:06:47 saulimus: naemsi, exactly

20:07:00 kakobrekla: https://just-dice.com/images/bitbet-468x60.png

20:07:02 kakobrekla: what does it say ?

20:07:41 saulimus: empty?

20:07:50 ThickAsThieves: something about milk?

20:07:59 Scrat: aliased font

20:08:05 Scrat: puke

20:08:27 Scrat: or rather, full hinted with some AA

20:09:17 FabianB: lol, active is so much lower on bf

20:09:47 pankkake: insane

20:14:03 Rulother_: Maybe it's time to get out the glenlivet

20:29:28 Namworld: Why are people buying millions of that ACTIVEMINING stuff...

20:29:41 ThickAsThieves: here's why: "It's fun to watch the price go nuts but no chance I'm selling a single share until .02, even then I'll probably just sell enough to cover my original investment. I'm in this for the dividends... Those guys that bought in early with AM are receiving ~$15,000/week USD."

20:29:51 dexX7: lol

20:29:53 dexX7: take a look at the books

20:30:00 dexX7: its filled with mini mini orders

21:28:00 Namworld: "I bought when they were .00005/share then realized what a douche Slaughter was and sold soon after. Wish he wasn't such a douche, I'd have 9x my god damned btc right now. But, alas, he is a fucking douche. I think I'm going to put my wallet in front of my emotions and re-invest in AMC, but if I lose all my money because they collapse, I'll consider it well worth it."

21:28:08 Namworld: Is that supposed to make sense?

21:28:46 ThickAsThieves: to Ken, yes

21:29:31 hollywoodundead: Who is slaughter?

21:29:41 ThickAsThieves: the guy theat runs ActM

21:29:46 ThickAsThieves: that*

21:29:55 mjr_: sup all

21:30:01 hollywoodundead: and Ken is the brains ?

21:30:28 Namworld: Summary: "Ken is a douche, I sold, I didn't profit from raise, let's put emotions aside, I buy back at high price. If I lose all cause it goes back down, IT'S WORTH IT."

21:30:36 Namworld: That makes zero sense...

21:30:52 ThickAsThieves: but you explain it so well

21:30:56 hollywoodundead: Slaughter = Ken ?

21:31:01 ThickAsThieves: yes

21:31:06 ThickAsThieves: Ken Slaughter

21:31:07 hollywoodundead: ahh , ok

21:31:50 Namworld: is "KEN SLAUGHTER" the Ken equivalent of "HULK SMASH"?

21:32:04 Namworld: Totally legit and important question.

21:32:39 hollywoodundead: I think it is like homer simpson chainging his name to max powers

21:32:51 ThickAsThieves: hehe
