mircea_popescu Regretfully, all the aspirations of “reformers” of American mathematical education go in the opposite direction. Mastery of algorithms makes students self-sufficient - get away from it, make them dependent on Texas Instruments. Logical proofs develop [04:37]

mircea_popescu What the “reformers” promote, that is open-ended problems, “real-world” problems with clouds of answers, activities instead of problems, create a fuzzy world, ~~~in which students always have to guess the teacher’s mind and can not learn to discriminate between right and wrong by their own means. ~~~ [04:37]

mircea_popescu but that aside : 500k in cash is still a better deal than what present day usians get. they still have no education, but -500k in cash to go with it too. [06:39]
mircea_popescu and caml was, iirc, 1995. [06:40]

mircea_popescu hola! [18:43]
anton_osika Hola! [18:43]
nubbins` anton_osika not my contract so i have NFI. but i don't see anything in there that requires you to take any further action [18:44]
nubbins` o hi mp [18:44]

anton_osika mircea_popescu: Hey since I read your first draft of the contract between you and me I have learnt a lot. [18:44]
mircea_popescu cool! [18:45]
* julmac has quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds) [18:45]
anton_osika I still don't see that it explicitly states that antonosika needs a signature for delivery however :) [18:46]
nubbins` it doesn't. [18:47]
mircea_popescu ... [18:47]
anton_osika Could you let me have this with my freenode auth, if no one else claims to be antonosika, and I will stop pestering you and how is a man of his words? [18:47]
anton_osika Would be quite inspirational. [18:47]
mircea_popescu mnop. cuz i don't want to encourage the world of nubins and anton_osika. i want to encourage the world of wot and signatures. [18:47]
mircea_popescu the way i see it, it would be inspirational of undesirables. [18:48]
mircea_popescu this way, it's inspirational of the people i actually like. [18:48]
nubbins` lel. maybe you shoulda worded the contract such. [18:48]
mircea_popescu it IS worded such. [18:48]
nubbins` uh huh [18:48]
trinque there's no "eth" payout address in the contract [18:48]
anton_osika mircea_popescu: I see it as encouraging for new users to use WoT without being afraid. [18:48]
mircea_popescu that's the very point. [18:48]
mircea_popescu why should they not be affraid ? [18:48]
mircea_popescu new uisers should be affraid. [18:48]
mircea_popescu that is what "new" means. [18:48]
anton_osika Well the power of WoT lies in how large it will scale. [18:49]
phf asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: that could easily be the last remaining such machine, the nvidia ball grid plague killed them all, i thought. << have one of those, you can manually switch with some hacks which video card is used at all times, i have it running on integrated, which prevents real 3d from happening, but hopefully extends life [18:49]
nubbins` oh look at that, the contract literally does not state how the ETH will be delivered [18:49]
nubbins` yep, anton done fucked up [18:49]
trinque nubbins`: yeah, just that some guy with a particular gpg key would receive the eth [18:49]
nubbins` SFYL [18:50]
nubbins` (NSFYL) [18:50]
nubbins` specifically, this snipped sealed your fate: "in a manner to be agreed upon thence" [18:51]
anton_osika My aim was to settle this with as much of my physical credibility at stake as possible. Which is why Anton Osika is my real username, with everything publicaly available on me (I'm in the phonebook). If ones physical identity can be a backup for WoT then it might strengthen WoT. [18:51]
nubbins` since you can't prove you're you, nothing can be agreed upon thence [18:51]
mircea_popescu there exists no suych thing as "physical credibility". [18:51]
mircea_popescu this is crypto land. cryptographical credibility is required, and it has a unique and very clearly defined underpinning. [18:52]
mircea_popescu go sign. [18:52]
anton_osika nubbins`: Would you say the same thing to someone that Lost his right hand for signing documents and is looking you dead in the face? [18:53]
anton_osika mircea_popescu: How do you mean clearly defined underpinning? [18:53]
nubbins` anton_osika you're asking me if i would reach the same conclusion if the situation were entirely different? [18:53]
nubbins` o.O [18:53]
nubbins` FWIW, you can still sign documents without hands. [18:53]
mircea_popescu i mean that without your signature you have no rights and properly speaking don't even exist. [18:53]
nubbins` the illiterate used to draw an X. you could do that with your mouth. [18:54]
nubbins` there is no cryptographic equivalent of this. [18:54]
nubbins` mircea_popescu and fwiw "world of nubbins" is a world in which contracts are entered and people retain their keys [18:54]
nubbins` ;;ident [18:54]

nubbins` guy does not seem to get this point. [18:55]
nubbins` hey, come on, i re-read :D [18:55]
mircea_popescu true, true. [18:55]
mircea_popescu don';t get the wrong idea, anton_osika : i actually like you. [18:56]
nubbins` if i were the sort of jackass who went around losing keys, i'd probably sign some messages preemptively to take care of things in case that happened [18:56]
nubbins` but if i'm the sort of person who loses keys, i'm also the sort of person who loses signed statements. [18:56]
nubbins` sooooo [18:56]
anton_osika mircea_popescu: Well my situation is regarding my life savings so it does matter a bit less as of now. [18:56]
mircea_popescu nubbins` it's a risky but perhaps useful approach. "All assignables belonging to key X should henceforth be transferred to key X which has full authority to bla bla" [18:56]
trinque 3btc == live savings? [18:56]
trinque *life [18:57]
nubbins` mircea_popescu i'm not 100% sure that our contract allows such [18:57]
mircea_popescu anton_osika i would propose you're not experienced enough to crypto to make it the repository of your life savings. [18:57]
mircea_popescu nubbins` iirc, yes. [18:57]

mircea_popescu o.O [18:58]
mircea_popescu that doesn't sound like it does, nubbins` [18:58]
nubbins` tbh i have no idea what second sentence has to do with first [18:58]
nubbins` but first seems to explicitly disallow a signed "plz deliver to this key instead" message. [18:59]
mircea_popescu the assignment of a negotiable can only be a contract. [18:59]
trinque anton_osika: so you're out what, 700 bucks? [18:59]
mircea_popescu trinque well no, since the eth was WAY later than what they originally promised, the short lived launch bubble happened right around now. [18:59]
trinque yeah but that was the upside back to him, right? he only put in 3btc [19:00]
anton_osika more in the equivalent of around 15'000 $ [19:00]
trinque you didn't lose that; you made sure you never got it [19:00]

mircea_popescu try this sometime, go ask your bank for your money, but refuse to show id. [19:11]

anton_osika mircea_popescu: That is one lesson learned, from all this agony. [19:32]
nubbins` anton_osika i could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that i am who i say i am, and everyone in here would be convinced, but i'm still not executing that SSW without a key [19:32]
mircea_popescu no key = 1760 negro. not only no rights, but no human identity at all. st peter doesn't even keep track of yotur sins. you're like the beasts of the plains. [19:32]
trinque anton_osika: it's not that much money; you're just young. and mistakes you make in youth that you survive will remind you later never again to be so foolish. [19:32]
mircea_popescu nubbins` you certainly can't because it being an equity thing, it impacts the patrimony of unknown shareholders. [19:32]

thestringpuller << from garzik's presentation [19:35]
anton_osika I understand those before me who weep - when there is ambigouity in settlements that they would need their non-negro identities with. [19:35]
cazalla thestringpuller, is this not from the other conference and not the coindesk one? [19:36]
nubbins` are refugees actually welcome to tanzania - africa, tho? [19:36]
nubbins` not sure that's the PM and minister of foreign affairs in picture [19:36]
anton_osika My case is however that acting in from the perspective of probable doubt is good for the robustness of bitcoin-assets. [19:36]
mircea_popescu nubbins` they never found out, did they ? [19:36]
nubbins` 8) [19:36]
nubbins` nope. [19:36]
mircea_popescu how come! [19:36]
thestringpuller cazalla: didn't coindesk put on the consensus conference? [19:36]
mircea_popescu somehow they had a very clear vector loaded. [19:36]
nubbins` because they traded their cell phones for mattresses? [19:36]

nubbins` mircea_popescu well ya know. if i'm on fire, i'm heading for the water, not the gas station [19:37]
mircea_popescu nubbins` oh i see, that's what it is. [19:37]
mircea_popescu what kind of fire are you on ? [19:37]
cazalla thestringpuller, yes they did but i thought the garzik slides are from the scaling bitcoin conference (ran the day after or something) [19:37]
mircea_popescu how come they're on the kind of fire that can be put out by welfare checks and tightly packed stupiud white cunts, [19:37]
anton_osika So I would say that a payment - if I deliver some sort of verification - would strengthen the credibility of MP. As well as bitcoin-assets as a whole. [19:37]
thestringpuller cazalla: ah interesting. i'm still outraged tho! [19:38]
mircea_popescu not by unused farmland and cheap labour ? [19:38]
mircea_popescu hm ? HM ? [19:38]
nubbins` lel. [19:38]
nubbins` mugabe gave out farmland; how'd that work out for everyone? [19:38]
nubbins` i have a $100Tn bill upstairs that says "not so well" [19:38]
mircea_popescu anton_osika the main intellectual pivot here is the notion that "everyone must make it". this is what informs your "what if there's a solar flare" thing. [19:38]
thestringpuller "Stuck at 1M strangles Bitcoin growth and adoption" lol [19:38]
mircea_popescu however, this place is predicated on the converse : everyone MUST NOT make it. [19:38]
mircea_popescu so the solar flare isn't a problem to it. [19:38]

anton_osika In some chain of events however unlikely any of you would lose your PGP identities. [19:40]
nubbins` mircea_popescu do you suppose they'd still be holding the sign if tanzania was a first-world country that also happened to carpet bomb syria? [19:40]
nubbins` i wonder. [19:40]
mircea_popescu too counterfactual to guess. [19:40]
nubbins` nod [19:40]
mircea_popescu anton_osika yup. [19:40]
nubbins` anton_osika fwiw if mp pays out, it would wreck his credibility [19:41]
mircea_popescu nubbins` but the important point remains : there IS SPACE for you here. and you dun wanna go here, you wanna go there. where you most pointedly don't belong, you want to go. [19:41]
mircea_popescu the monkey quality. [19:41]
anton_osika The meaning of GPG contracts are being defined as we speak, as of those being honoured and those who are not, and I think you might agree that it is a better contract if it can - as any other contract between to individuals - be honoured in good faith aka. when fulfilled beyond reasonable doubt. [19:41]
nubbins` mircea_popescu since when is "space" the primary consideration? [19:42]
nubbins` there's space in canada's north [19:42]
nubbins` but the gov has to pay people to move there. [19:42]
mircea_popescu nubbins` not for them, too cold. [19:42]
anton_osika mircea_popescu: Where is it that I wan't to go you say? [19:42]
nubbins` twodogs is too cold for the sudanese who live here [19:42]
mircea_popescu here';s some basic logic : when you're fucked, you move among weaker people to recover, if you're worth two shits. [19:42]
nubbins` they have jackets tho. [19:42]
mircea_popescu anton_osika a) gpg contracts are already defined, cuz that article ; b) we don't agree. [19:43]
nubbins` "worth two shits" changes when your country and meat-wot are both rubble [19:43]
mircea_popescu the point of this entire thing is to make existence painful and difficult. not to continue the convenience of consumers. [19:43]
anton_osika I'm trying to make the system less reliant on one single part of failure, but I see I have failed. [19:44]
mircea_popescu nubbins` so you can't take the family and go to tanzania. because why ? [19:44]
nubbins` sure i can. [19:44]
mircea_popescu this is essentially the alf argument. "i can't do anything by myself" [19:44]
mircea_popescu if you can't, why'd europe want you ? [19:44]
nubbins` lel. [19:44]
mircea_popescu if you can, why aren';t you going to tanzania! [19:44]
nubbins` what's alf gonna do in tanzania? [19:44]
anton_osika Arguably I am wrong as well. [19:44]

anton_osika But I will go on in my venture to find a way to verify my identity. [19:44]
nubbins` but he doesn't know how [19:44]
mircea_popescu what, these immigrants were born with a cow milking interdiciton ? [19:44]
mircea_popescu so he learns. does he know how to be european ? [19:45]
mircea_popescu anton_osika better go on a venture to find a way to protect your next one. [19:45]
nubbins` afaik being european just means breakfast is weird and coffee is always espresso. [19:45]
mircea_popescu oic. [19:45]
nubbins` 0/10 do not want [19:45]
mircea_popescu yeah, there's no bacalaureat anymore. and you don't need to know three languages. and so on. [19:45]
mircea_popescu you can just be your fucktarded tribal shithead self, and will be ok. [19:45]
mircea_popescu mmmmmmkay. [19:45]
mircea_popescu if that;s the idea, go to tanzania, there it'll work to everyone's satisfaction. [19:46]
mircea_popescu for tanzania, it even is an improvement. [19:46]
trinque intellectuals need to be humiliated with manual labor at some point in life [19:46]
trinque shovel cow shit; I have [19:46]
mircea_popescu wait, the refugees are also intellectuals ? [19:46]
trinque was referring to alf in tanzania [19:46]
mircea_popescu i doubt it, they'd have emigrated to maryland. [19:46]
mircea_popescu oh. iirc he had an episode doing something [19:47]
nubbins` no, the syrian intellectuals are hanging out here: [19:47]
trinque so they did that to their own home [19:47]
nubbins` they stayed 'cause they're intellectual, see [19:47]
trinque what are they going to do to anyone else's? [19:47]
mircea_popescu that looks like a bomb blast [19:48]

* nubbins` searches log for someone saying this [19:49]
trinque so you're just saying "why wouldn't they go to germany" ? [19:49]
trinque I don't have argument with that, only the idiocy of germany accepting [19:49]
nubbins` i'm saying they'd be fucking idiots to (a) stay (b) go to tanzania [19:49]
mircea_popescu trinque well, i see merit in it. the presumption you can enforce borders comes from what ? [19:49]
nubbins` trinque germany's the big economic powerhouse, yes? [19:50]
trinque if one can, one can [19:50]
mircea_popescu nubbins` i don't follow b and a is a ridiculous strawman effort to somehow gang b. [19:50]
mircea_popescu nubbins` "germany" in the sense of "not them", not germany in the sense of, "everyone in this perimeter". [19:50]
nubbins` sure [19:50]
mircea_popescu i hear women live longer, go become a woman to live longer. [19:50]
mircea_popescu it's the exact sylogism of germany is a powerhouse i r immigrant there. [19:50]

trinque asciilifeform: better question might be whether there are existing hypertext system implementations from that era [23:17]
trinque had a thread with gabriel_laddel recently on whether hypertext was even valuable; I hold that it is [23:18]
deedbot- [Trilema] What is a fractal ? - [23:18]
trinque node over there has data; I want to view it with presentations over here [23:18]
asciilifeform trinque: there is the symbolics one [23:18]
trinque this was HTML or something else? [23:18]
asciilifeform trinque: entirely else. [23:18]
trinque obviously I'm searching for the latter [23:18]
trinque "document examiner" << ?? [23:19]
asciilifeform aha [23:19]
trinque ty [23:19]
asciilifeform 'concordia' also. [23:19]
asciilifeform ('examiner' was a viewer-only thing) [23:19]
asciilifeform concordia even typeset books (including the manuals, which i have here on my shelf) [23:20]
asciilifeform trinque: [23:20]
assbot Symbolics Document Examiner and Concordia on Vimeo ... ( ) [23:21]
nubbins` i did some typesetting with LaTeX in uni, the math dept required it [23:22]
asciilifeform i used and still use latex. [23:23]
asciilifeform for all sorts of things. [23:23]
nubbins` great for equations [23:23]
asciilifeform except not so great for anything which ~didn't start life intended for latexing~ [23:23]
nubbins` heh [23:23]
asciilifeform this is the difference between the typesetter component in 'concordia' and latex [23:23]
trinque seems entirely clear to me that a better web would be nothing more than something like a CLIM listener here, and a network of data sources out there [23:23]
asciilifeform can take ~whatever~ on the machine and have it sanely typeset. [23:24]
asciilifeform trinque: precisely how a better horse is this box with four legs, reins, motor, aha ? [23:24]
trinque and maybe the data source proposes to me that my system fetch some new presentations it needs, but that the act of browing around does not *at all* involve running someone else's code [23:24]
trinque asciilifeform: we all use the web all day; I'd have to be persuaded that it's useless [23:25]
asciilifeform the preoccupation with 'i will read your data but not run your code' is voodoo. [23:25]
nubbins` keep going and you'll reinvent MIME types [23:25]
asciilifeform the physical difference is imaginary [23:25]
asciilifeform !s what colour are your bits [23:25]
assbot 6 results for 'what colour are your bits' : [23:25]
trinque nubbins`: mime types are a shitty implementation of something that came before it [23:26]
nubbins` s/mime types/everything [23:26]
trinque too real [23:26]
nubbins` sry [23:26]
* contrapumpkin has quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…) [23:26]
nubbins` you think that's too real, don't ask me about cellular automata [23:27]

trinque asciilifeform: if there could be hard constraints on what someone else's code could do on my computer, I'd be far more willing [23:27]
asciilifeform trinque: it isn't really a computer until this is so. [23:27]
trinque as it stands I'd like to go back to an addressing system for flat text with the option of involving more code as I see fit [23:27]
trinque asciilifeform: there we have no disagreement [23:28]
gernika asciilifeform is there a book you can recommend that approximates this, or at least traces a few important branches? [23:30]
assbot Logged on 12-09-2015 20:29:47; mircea_popescu: but V is the best simulation of how actual math learning happens (in those brains actually capable to learn math) that we ever had as a fucking species. [23:30]
trinque exactly what I meant about the right man's library index [23:30]
* trinque departs for a bit [23:30]
asciilifeform gernika: i cannot answer this because it is not clear to me what is being asked for. [23:31]
nubbins` came across my uni transcripts recently: yipes. [23:31]
nubbins` i have no business holding a degree [23:31]
nubbins` but... the only way they can take it away from me is by rendering it useless throu... waitaminute [23:32]
* nubbins` wanders off to think [23:32]
gernika asciilifeform a book that connects pythagoras to newton, with proofs for all the nodes in between? [23:33]
asciilifeform gernika: sure. this is a book, except that it is made of 1,001 others and they take up three bookcases. [23:33]
asciilifeform i sorta have one here. [23:33]
gernika I feared as much. [23:33]
asciilifeform but it wouldn't do you any good. there is not a standardized one that works on everybody. [23:33]
asciilifeform if you want a pocket-sized 'tour guide', try 'Mathematics: Its Content, Methods and Meaning' (A. D. Aleksandrov, A. N. Kolmogorov, et al) [23:35]
gernika ok. thanks. [23:35]
asciilifeform readily and cheaply available in english [23:35]
asciilifeform paperback. [23:35]
asciilifeform problem is, most folks asking for this kind of thing, have vastly overoptimistic idea of what can be expected from a single book and a reasonable amount of study. [23:37]
