asciilifeform tenacious critter, has been going at it for decades, it seems. [00:00]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 58416 @ 0.00026684 = 15.5877 BTC [+] [00:00]
mircea_popescu decimation i've noticed that a good heuristic is, if (grep -c "privilege" > 1) break; [00:01]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu's bayesian antispamatron must be a real hoot [00:02]
mircea_popescu somehow this idea that "privilege = bad" is getting passed around a certain group of idiots as given gospel. [00:02]
mircea_popescu hasn't even been investigated at any point, it's just revelation or something. [00:02]
asciilifeform they have more of a 'bad is privilege' thing [00:02]
decimation well, he is also melding the idea that the 'software factory' model is retarded into this [00:03]
decimation but I don't really follow that [00:03]
mircea_popescu well the software factory is definitel yretarded. [00:03]
asciilifeform decimation: the realization that software and computing in general as it exists is deeply and profoundly retarded, dawned on many people [00:03]
mircea_popescu "Celia Green is a philosopher and psychologist" [00:03]
mircea_popescu "that likes to write in the third person" [00:03]
decimation sure, but does that mean that hierarchical classification is a conspiracy? [00:03]
asciilifeform decimation: to some of these folks, the beige and black that pc chassis traditionally come in is the conspiracy [00:04]
asciilifeform there are at least as many idiocies as there idiots to conceive of them [00:04]
asciilifeform << obligatory [00:05]
assbot ... ( ) [00:05]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 82900 @ 0.00027433 = 22.742 BTC [+] {2} [00:10]
decimation "The mechanistic software beliefs, in particular, have permitted a powerful software elite to arise. In just a few decades, organizations that have in fact little to offer us have attained so much power that they practically control society. As we will see in the course of this book, their power rests almost entirely on mechanistic software delusions, and on the stupidity engendered by these delusions." [00:11]
asciilifeform ^ cheap n-th generation plagiarism of weizenbaum (of eliza) 'computer power and human reason' [00:12]
asciilifeform << warez copy [00:12]
assbot Joseph Weizenbaum Computer Power and Human Reason From Judgement to Calculation 1976 ... ( ) [00:12]
asciilifeform (weizenbaum made specific predictions re: electronic enablement of massive welfare bureaucracy, etc.) [00:14]
decimation yeah this guy seems to be derping that the 'software elites' have seized control and are starving the masses [00:15]
decimation he reminds me of that jeron lanier guy [00:22]
asciilifeform it somehow grates the ear less coming out of a broke schizo than a fella like lanier [00:23]
mircea_popescu yeah. the powerful software elite is out there crushing its cessna in irs tax offices. [00:23]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: presumably the particular crackpot meant 'those who decide what is written' rather than the worker bees [00:24]
mircea_popescu i wish to meet these people. [00:24]
mircea_popescu as far as i know, not even linus "decides what is written" [00:24]
mircea_popescu definitely nobody in redmond [00:24]
asciilifeform they 'decide' to approximately the same degree as obama [00:24]
asciilifeform largely, the structure of the idiotron decides for them. [00:25]
mircea_popescu ^ cheap n-th generation plagiarism of weizenbaum (of eliza) 'computer power and human reason' << this diagnosis is exactly correct, i am persuaded. [00:25]
mircea_popescu pretty much all of the us consists of john smiths, rewriting the bible in their own name. [00:25]
asciilifeform tbh weizenbaum is in no sense the originator of the 'mega-computerized bureaucracy will crush all souls' meme [00:26]
decimation "Application development, thus, will soon require no programmers. An analyst or manager will specify the requirements by interacting with a sophisti- cated development system, and the computer will do the rest: “There is a major revolution happening in software and system design.... The revolution is the replacement of manual design and coding with automated design and coding.”Ñ " [00:26]
asciilifeform but he is the single most articulate dissector of it, of the ones in my library, and so i pick him. [00:26]
mircea_popescu kinda how culture works. [00:26]
mircea_popescu shakespeare was also not the first to derp about derpy themes [00:26]
decimation he didn't even write it, another guy with the same name did [00:27]
mircea_popescu it was his wife, check your privilege [00:27]
mircea_popescu (fun story : privileg was my first calculator. [00:28]
* asciilifeform notices the resemblance to 'elektronika' series [00:29]
mircea_popescu 10 points for beginning the description of your theory by saying how long you have been working on it. (10 more for emphasizing that you worked on your own.) [00:29]
mircea_popescu 10 more if it's built from the ground up with anything in mind. [00:29]
mircea_popescu speaking of which, [00:31]
assbot Monty Python - Theory on Brontosauruses by Anne Elk (Miss). - YouTube ... ( ) [00:31]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: << it ? [00:33]
assbot The Metatechnical Cabinet - Privileg 861-M-NC / Litronix 1721R ... ( ) [00:33]
mircea_popescu nah smaller thing, solar powered [00:34]
mircea_popescu bout the size of a biscuit. same thicknes throughout [00:34]
mircea_popescu this [00:34]
assbot MyCalcDB :   Calculator  Privileg / Quelle  SOLAR 16 ... ( ) [00:34]
asciilifeform woah hightech [00:35]
mircea_popescu it kicked ass, an dprobably set my expectations of machines in fields like responsivity for instance. or stress tolerance [00:36]
* asciilifeform came from orcish lands where lcd was considered exotic tech [00:36]
mircea_popescu (like, i'd cover it's cell and have it do stuff) [00:36]
decimation actually lcds are worse in nearly ever respect other than power draw [00:37]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: probably set my expectations of machines in fields like responsivity for instance... << very tellingly, children in usa are now being issued with pocket calculators that have -palpable boot times- and delays on all basic ops [00:38]
asciilifeform (e.g., texas instruments 'nspire' etc) [00:39]
mircea_popescu hidebound reactionary" << wtf does this even mean [00:39]
decimation asciilifeform: my hp48 was doing tons of processing under the hood, would never delay or have a 'boot time' [00:39]
asciilifeform decimation: it wasn't running java [00:39]
decimation except during intense graphing operations, etc [00:39]
decimation no, it was running hand optimized assembly [00:40]
* WolfGoethe has quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…) [00:40]
mircea_popescu ayup [00:40]
asciilifeform decimation: visit an electronics store and prepare to have brain come out of ears. i've had flashlights that -crashed.- i drive a car with a -buggy- thermostat controller. (made 12 yrs ago, too. the rot began long ago.) [00:41]
mircea_popescu lol crashed flashlight wut [00:41]
asciilifeform !s flashlight crash [00:41]
assbot 2 results for 'flashlight crash' : [00:41]
mircea_popescu nuts. [00:41]
* mircea_popescu owned a half lb flashlight in TM. yet it had no processor. [00:42]
asciilifeform [00:43]
assbot Logged on 16-07-2014 18:31:23; asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: flashlight article << a decade or so ago, i had a flashlight that... crashed! when destroyed, it revealed a microcontroller, with eeprom... [00:43]
mircea_popescu nuts [00:43]
decimation asciilifeform: I have a friend who is an old graybeard EE, been working on actual circuitry since the 80's [00:44]
mircea_popescu << ok i must confess this is a kickass theory. [00:44]
assbot Planets in the Fourth Dimension | Azimuth ... ( ) [00:44]
mircea_popescu "why ellipses ? because circles in 4 dimensions project to 3 dimensional ellipses, that's why!" [00:45]
decimation he said recently a sea change has come with kids coming out of school; they want to specify massive cpu, memory for very simple micro-controllers so they can run java [00:45]
mircea_popescu "Dr Green currently holds no salaried academic position, a situation her associates regard as profoundly anomalous and unjust. One of the purposes of Oxford Forum is to reinstate her in the academic world." [00:50]
mircea_popescu ajaja [00:50]
mircea_popescu The reason Dr Green is not a salaried academic is partly because her ideas are out of sympathy with the prevailing intellectual climate, but also because her education was ruined. A child prodigy, she was the victim of a hostile state education system, and an unsympathetic college when she was an undergraduate at Oxford. She is uniquely suited to doing research, and could be making significant progress in several areas [00:51]
mircea_popescu of knowledge if she was not hampered by her exiled position and lack of funding. [00:51]
mircea_popescu Oxford Forum's aim is to expand into an independent college cum university which would generate and publish research in several areas including philosophy, economics, the psychology and physiology of perception, and theoretical physics. [00:51]
mircea_popescu epic. [00:51]
cazalla another stream, fight starts now [00:51]
assbot ... ( ) [00:51]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: to be fair, it was a flashlight with some basic state - was the kind that is to switch itself on when mains socket it is kept charging in fails [00:52]
mircea_popescu this requires electronics ? [00:52]
mircea_popescu does your rectifier also run java ? [00:53]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: someone decided to use a microcontroller. quite possibly because 29 cents instead of 30 for a '555'. [00:53]
asciilifeform somehow its eeprom (yes) got erased. [00:54]
mircea_popescu see, shoulda got the ecc variant [00:54]
mircea_popescu [00:57]
assbot CELIA GREEN: Interns ... ( ) [00:57]
mircea_popescu pretty great find, this [00:57]
mircea_popescu Pain Control [00:57]
mircea_popescu An area of research in which I could be making progress if I had funding providing an income of at least £100,000 a year (progress would no doubt be faster with more income). [00:57]
* asciilifeform has been collecting folks like green for a long, long time [00:58]
asciilifeform partly because, for a serious crackpot, to avoid going entirely off the rails, it is helpful to know what the rails look like. [00:58]
mircea_popescu woman goes on to explain stuff about dentistry. [00:59]
decimation asciilifeform: or to be more precise, what the wreck off the rail looks like [01:02]
asciilifeform aha. [01:02]
* cardigm has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [01:04]
asciilifeform for the record, when i first encountered green ('07 ?) i definitely had sympathy for the 'someone ought to pay me to think, fuck the world' thing, until i figure out what she intended to 'think' -about- [01:08]
mircea_popescu it seems she literally intends to remembrance her youth ? [01:08]
mircea_popescu anyway, i do not personally believe this "pay me to think" thing has any merit whatsoever. [01:08]
mircea_popescu go do something useful, so your thoughts may be worth thinking in the first place. [01:09]
asciilifeform it has same merit as 'i would like to fly to buenos aires on farts' [01:09]
asciilifeform (who needs 'airbus' if can do this!) [01:10]
asciilifeform the academia racket does create a superficial chumpatronic appearance that some folks are 'paid to think' [01:11]
mircea_popescu myah. [01:11]
asciilifeform and certain folks who imagine that they could suck that teat while doing $theirthing instead of penning treatises re: checking privilege etc. - envy academics [01:12]
mircea_popescu similarly the entertainment racket creates the superficial chumpatronic appearance that some chicks "have it easy" [01:12]
mircea_popescu one needs a particular sort of ingrained uselessness outlook to come to that sort of worldview. [01:12]
