asciilifeform re: fork wars << i find it strange that the phoundation folks are derping around with block size, etc. rather than shooting for straight dekulakization. [00:00]
mircea_popescu this is just as good, if it passed. [00:00]
asciilifeform or is this more of a 'camel's nose' affair [00:00]
kakobrekla my guess is nobody really knows what the actual fuck is going on. [00:01]
thestringpuller BingoBoingo: you know. we used to have a "no alcohol on sunday" policy. [00:01]
thestringpuller used to not affect, me. Today, I'm like "Sweet time to get beer". [00:01]
asciilifeform what even is the point of gigantic blocks ? [00:01]
mircea_popescu kakobrekla quite certain you're right [00:01]
BingoBoingo what even is the point of gigantic blocks ? << More pretend businesses for the Mr Spamzors [00:02]

mircea_popescu heh. [00:10]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: where was this ? [00:11]
thestringpuller mircea_popescu: So, I'm a big Dave Chappelle fan. Anyhow when he got heckled and ragequitting off stage during one of his last stand up shows he came back out and said something to the audience: "You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid." This is how I [00:11]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform qntra [00:12]
mircea_popescu thestringpuller i recall that. [00:12]
mircea_popescu Basically they fired the guy who blew $1.5Million and only 5 Transactions (probably sub $10) to show for it. [00:12]
mircea_popescu BitPay will soon be dead. They probably make $1000 per month revenue and burn around $500K. [00:12]
mircea_popescu wait.... reddit no longer loves bitpay ? [00:13]
mircea_popescu that leaves what, propping the scam foundation ? [00:13]
mircea_popescu no, fred wilson on twitter isn't it. i mean business. [00:13]
* kdomanski ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:13]
mircea_popescu "I think the bigger issue is that Bitpay doesn't have a long term business model. Even assuming that Bitcoin adoption grows, transfer of Bitcoin to fiat is a programmable function. People will immediately cut out the middle man if it becomes less expensive, and its a bit of a race to the bottom as people compete in the space for the best rates, quickest conversion and most apis."

* asciilifeform failed to parse this sentence ^ [02:17]

thestringpuller yea [02:43]
thestringpuller cazalla has da full scoop on that [02:43]
thestringpuller it's old news tho I thought [02:43]
cazalla he was just the cameraman, what's the problem?!?! [02:43]
thestringpuller "cameraman" lol [02:44]
mircea_popescu fill me in ? [02:44]
cazalla actually, i don't know the full story, i think thestringpuller has that [02:44]
thestringpuller man this was months ago [02:44]
thestringpuller we were researching and found a few articles saying he was setting up underage girl shoots [02:44]
thestringpuller was technically legal, but sketchy as hell [02:44]
thestringpuller lemme see if I can do some digging [02:44]
cazalla mircea_popescu, he's allege to have run a glamourshots business but claimed he was only the cameraman, i dunno the facts tbh [02:44]
mircea_popescu i thought it was that other derp that got put away for something pedo related [02:45]
mircea_popescu some expert i wrote about at some point [02:45]
thestringpuller << there we go [02:45]
mircea_popescu how is bitpay being run by a fucking cameraman [02:45]

mircea_popescu lol ok, i recall this now. [02:46]
undata dude can't even opsec his pedo-ing and he wants my coin [02:47]
mircea_popescu of course, all this wasn't exactly exceptional in 2002 or w/e. [02:48]
asciilifeform why's that annoying you << i have a heuristic for picking lines of inquiry that's heavily weighted against what i know other folks to be doing [02:48]
asciilifeform it makes life more interesting. [02:48]
thestringpuller ^- so do vidya games [02:48]
mircea_popescu "Lets not forget the real paid shills on /r/bitcoin as well. The fuckwits who were paid to spread the usage of 'bit' as a unit. I wonder how much BitPay spent on that one." << that's a kinda funny one. yet another place where derps diverge from mp, derps fail & get burned, derps dun learn. [02:49]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform yeah but i mean... so it's great, less shit to worry about, someone else;s doing it. [02:49]
mircea_popescu i guess im just lazy. [02:49]

mircea_popescu ok, you got me there, but still. [02:51]
BingoBoingo [02:53]
mircea_popescu in unrelated news, im kinda blown away that the point that an eulogy's job is to illustrate how great the deceased was and how worthless the world by comparison is somehow controversial. [02:53]
assbot ... ( ) [02:53]
mircea_popescu is this because reddit is too young to have given much thought to funerals etc ? [02:53]
BingoBoingo Prolly [02:53]
mircea_popescu but i mean... they're in literature too. [02:53]
mircea_popescu well, i guess not in o'reilly stuff. hm. [02:54]

asciilifeform mircea_popescu: blown away that the point that an eulogy's job is to illustrate how great the deceased was and how worthless the world by comparison is somehow controversial << their problem is with the second half of the sentence. which is, of course, entirely like disdaining one side of the battery [03:00]

mircea_popescu Up to probably three or four years ago, I would absolutely be that self-hating nerd Chu is talking about. Generally, I'm not that good looking.

For most of my life, I was bullied, and even at 23 years old, I still experience a bit of bullying, and I internalize every insult I hear. Just a few days ago, a random guy in the street called m [15:15]

Because of that bullying, I really don't have much confidence at all outside of my own work. The first thing I think of when I meet a new person is "I wonder how disgusted he is with me." And because of that self-hatred, I've never sought out rel [15:15]

Through shooting myself down, however, I also shot down that person. "She's shallow," I'd say, "she only wants hot jocks and douchebags. She's not worth my time." I would project all of my self-hatred onto this woman so I could avoid actually working on m [15:15]

thestringpuller And that's very much what I think this war comes down to. Not block size or anything else. Just the simple fact: You are either for changing bitcoin for YOUR needs, or you are willing to adapt to bitcoin. [16:58]
bitcoin_charlie So, when you buy an option, its timestamped on the blockchain [16:58]
pete_dushenski but... sidechains! [16:58]
bitcoin_charlie and if you win, the bet comes back + payout [16:58]
pete_dushenski thestringpuller yup! [16:58]
bitcoin_charlie Every option has been paid out, and the price feed is verifiable [16:58]
bitcoin_charlie Im helping them market and look for investors [16:58]

jurov the serial cable with buffer would suffice for a start [17:59]
davout mircea_popescu: if i don't know how it works and how i take it apart i ain't buying it :D [18:01]
mircea_popescu yeah obv. just, imo better economics all around once that's on the table. [18:01]
davout jurov: i'm trying to figure out exactly what the desirable properties of such an apparatus are [18:01]
mircea_popescu of airgaps ? [18:02]
davout mircea_popescu: yeah, no argument here, does it come with t-shirts? [18:02]
mircea_popescu hopefully lol [18:02]
davout yeah, well the questions i'm thinking about are [18:02]
jurov davout i assume it has a display and "ack" button that transmits the message, and nak button [18:02]
davout should you be able to log what goes through the airgap somehow? [18:02]
davout how do you ensure what goes in on one side of the airgap is what goes out? [18:03]
mircea_popescu well ideally by keeping the pieces simple. [18:03]
kakobrekla i call it 'the gaper' as a tribute to ass gapes. [18:03]
mircea_popescu lol [18:03]
mircea_popescu also, if it has a display, that's your auditor [18:03]
davout jurov: yeah, that's the manual case, but you might want to design an automated airgap [18:03]
mircea_popescu no lma [18:03]
mircea_popescu wtf is wrong with you ? [18:03]
jurov lolwut? [18:04]
davout wat [18:04]
mircea_popescu automated airgap = turning around 360 degrees ? [18:04]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8250 @ 0.00053717 = 4.4317 BTC [-] {2} [18:04]
kakobrekla 720 actually. [18:04]
mircea_popescu let's argue about it. [18:04]
davout wondering about what makes sense and what doesn't here [18:04]
jurov what's the problem with manual checks? [18:05]
mircea_popescu davout for all you know the internet is already automatically airgapped to all hell. [18:05]
davout no probs with manual checks [18:05]
mircea_popescu each hop in a traceroute [18:05]
jurov so then why you want it to be automatic? [18:06]
davout well, maybe there are some use cases where you want a uni-directional airgap [18:06]
davout or maybe you want to enforce that only some sort of messages go through [18:06]
davout guess that doesn't really count as an airgap if there isn't a manual step [18:06]
mircea_popescu like a diode yeah. conceivably. not what an airgap is toh [18:06]
mircea_popescu semiconductors aren't insulators. [18:07]
davout just don't put an emitter on the airgapped machine, no need for fancy semiconductors :D [18:07]
mircea_popescu not what i meant [18:07]
mircea_popescu i meant, your directional, or message-aware or otherwise "airgap" is a semiconductor in the flux [18:08]
mircea_popescu not an airgap (which is simply an insulator) [18:08]
davout we were discussing airgaps earlier, with a good solution being optics, right? [18:08]
mircea_popescu right [18:09]
davout so if you don't put a light emitter on the airgap machine you necessarily end up with a one-way airgap, right? [18:09]
davout that's the case i was thinking about, therefore not seeing a direct link to semi-conductors [18:10]
mircea_popescu well in the theoretical sense of your q, yes. [18:10]
mircea_popescu a diode is exactly this : current goes one way but not the other. [18:10]
davout yup, a diode [18:10]
mircea_popescu so think of your thing as a meta-diode. [18:10]
jurov the airgap isn't about technology, but about being in complete control [18:10]
mircea_popescu it doesn't work on electric flux, but "communication" flux [18:11]
davout yes [18:11]
mircea_popescu a diode, generally speaking, is a semiconductor. [18:11]
jurov if you cede control to software then it's not airgap anymore [18:11]
* joecool has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [18:11]
davout jurov: yup, no argument here [18:11]
mircea_popescu but an airgap is not a semiconductor. the technical argument can be brougth that obviously semiconductors insulate [18:12]
mircea_popescu at least some of the time. [18:12]
mircea_popescu this is valid, but not what airgap means [18:12]

mircea_popescu some informative original research, fresh from marquardt : "According to Mike Hearn, Satoshi even planned on creating a reputation system integrated with the Bitcoin client that would use the number of blocks you'd individually solved as part of a system to prevent scammers from creating infinitely many accounts." [20:12]
mircea_popescu apparently, teh wot is going to be attacked next, because yeah, totally, when you fail in everything you do the logical step is to do more things :D [20:12]

mircea_popescu "Demand for Bitcoin is not inelastic. Raise the price of using Bitcoin enough, and demand will decline. Right now, the primary reason people use Bitcoin is not its security. That's a nice benefit, but most users use it because it's cheap, and has the largest network of users, merchants, exchanges, etc. The affordability and number of users shouldn't be compromised for security. In fact, doing so will inevitably cause s [20:16]
mircea_popescu ecurity to suffer too." [20:16]

mircea_popescu "I don't understand why this is difficult to understand and literally I've said this three times in the past couple of days. [20:18]
mircea_popescu Everyone not on Gavin's side on this all act like low / zero fee transactions just disappear into the ether. They most certainly do not. If (when) the average block size exceeds 1MB these lower fee transactions will overrun the entire system. Servers running bitcoind will start swapping to disk instead of using memory. At that point the entire network would go down." [20:18]
mircea_popescu is it obvious why this is retarded or do i have to make a part 3 of "why gavin followers are dumb" list ? [20:18]

danielpbarron Basically anyone who doesn't update their software will not be able to see the new blocks. They will be on an old network that would no longer be "bitcoin" - until they updated their software. It's very likely that this old network would have no transactions because nobody would bother mining it. --reddit [20:46]

mircea_popescu this adventure makes it quite obvious how the entire libertard political machine is intended to function. sort-of like, it ran into a ravine, now it's suspended, ands you can walk under it safely and admire all the pistons and whatnot without much risk. [20:51]
mircea_popescu reminds me of a much older but quite central asciilifeform point : "These fools have been handed a technology so clever, so disruptive and revolutionary, that the rulers of the world would have to fully unmask themselves as ruthless tyrants in order to suppress it, — or give up their thrones on their own free will — if it were used correctly, that is." [20:52]
