PinkPosixPXE Here's a decent thread that provides some of the cliff notes, and main points (based on some of the viewer's/reader's interpretation) : [00:31]
assbot Making sure crypto remains insecure [pdf] | Hacker News [00:31]
asciilifeform blocksign << aha let's have a 'keybase' variant of 'deedbot.' haha. [00:31]
mircea_popescu PinkPosixPXE could it not be pdf ? [00:32]
mircea_popescu ah i guess you meant the comments huh. [00:32]
PinkPosixPXE I've searched far and wide, only a pdf version of his slides, I imagine they were just markers for him. But the commentary in the thread, specifically the first user, bullet points some of the main topics. [00:33]
PinkPosixPXE Best I could find, no video/recorded broadcast on the H2HC site or anywhere for that matter. :/ [00:33]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes: how are you to fight the usg thusly? << clearly, one who "does not understand how the world works", the highest honor said usg can bestow upon people. [00:33]

mircea_popescu o look, asciilifeform named his site after his intended os. like that temple guy! [00:43]

asciilifeform and yes, it was actually intended to be an os running on off-the-shelf x86-64 hardware. [00:44]
* asciilifeform assumed that everyone who has seen his site, knew this. [00:44]

asciilifeform ? [00:46]
undata your post makes me think about paying for "infractions" rather than per message [00:46]
undata asciilifeform: it's an IRC bot which punishes users for saying sentences that have been said before with exponentially increasing ban duration [00:46]
undata you could pay to be un-banned with ever increasing cost [00:47]
asciilifeform undata: not the point [00:47]
undata asciilifeform: then what is? [00:47]

mircea_popescu it has about 0 chances of happening, but it'd be pretty cool if it did lmao [00:52]
asciilifeform !s promise protocol [00:54]
assbot 3 results for 'promise protocol' : [00:54]
asciilifeform undata: point of gedankenexperiment was to propose a telegraph which is exactly as strong as bitcoin in every technical aspect. [00:54]
bounce from the country that brought us fearsome defamation laws, two kinds of online porn blocking, jail penalties on refusing to hand over your passwords, and, oh hey, anti-social behaviour orders... sure it'll happen, and it'll get used too. [00:55]
asciilifeform that is, will operate precisely as intended while the latter does. [00:55]
asciilifeform undata: the idea, as described on my site, is deadly-simple - no need for server, you 'speak' by sending btc to an address. others 'hear' by seeing what was sent. if the channel owner (owner of privkey to address) decides that you are persona non grata, you never see your coin again. otherwise, it is sent back after a while. [00:56]
undata asciilifeform: ah yes, I was merely focusing on the social behavior [00:57]
undata I get it [00:57]
asciilifeform i am entirely uninterested in any system, however superficially similar, which isn't built on top of actual bitcoin blockchain. [00:57]
assbot [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 21150 @ 0.00073651 = 15.5772 BTC [-] {2} [00:57]
undata asciilifeform: then you have a positive opinion of using the blockchain for information storage? [00:58]
asciilifeform the idea was specifically to show that existing btc protocol is isomorphic to a 'proper chat' [00:58]
undata I've heard people gripe about doing that [00:58]
asciilifeform bitcoin should be used for whatever is physically possible. [00:58]
asciilifeform if it breaks, it was broken from birth [00:58]
asciilifeform as in all software. [00:58]
undata cool, I agree. I've thought it would be a great place to put magnet links, for example [00:59]

ThickAsThieves internets internets everywhere and not a drop to drink [01:38]
mircea_popescu bounce: rather transparent ploy at that, but succeeding << not succeeding in any sense [01:39]
mircea_popescu one of the numerous categorical things bitcoin is doing is making such ploys impossible. pre bitcoin, they could have tried to squeeze the market. [01:39]
mircea_popescu now, they'd just make us richer. [01:39]
mircea_popescu bounce: engineers do, make, fix, etc. thinking starts maybe once the tech is widely deployed and cannot be put back in the box. <<< yeah, it's not the job of the engineer to think. [01:42]
mircea_popescu *: bounce thinks the amount of "security" around POTUS is both its own show and another sign that el presidente is not in fact in control of the government faculties <<< doh. [01:44]
mircea_popescu bounce: all good and well to want to avoid societal collapse, but to pretend biology would willingly accomodate you there is maybe a bit much. the judge's answer thus is a good measure of the quality of the judicial branch << you have to understand that pious fraud was a lot more fashionable in 1914 than it is today [01:45]
* Escu has quit (Quit: Page closed) [01:45]
mircea_popescu part of the reason is post structuralism and deconstructivism. the other part is the internet. [01:45]
mircea_popescu in any case, most of the stuff justice relies on to function is actually broken and couldn't stand scrutiny. ironically, the older it is, the more apt it is regarded by the amply conservative mechanism of justice ; yet the more likely to be flawed irretrievavbly [01:46]
mircea_popescu as anything made by men who are not cool enough to live with cocksucking sluts is suspect. [01:47]
mircea_popescu and so... fingerprints ? lol. but they're being replaced with "dna proof". which IS more selective, [01:47]
mircea_popescu but it is much less probative, because so easy to contaminate. [01:47]
mircea_popescu all that's needed to put someone at a crime scene today is an old hairbrush, or a worn shirt, or anything. [01:47]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform: the 'method' idea is possibly lifted from the jewish tradition (where you are not, in fact, asked to believe in god, but to simply carry out the program, as i understand.) << errything's lifted from judaism. [01:49]
PinkPosixPXE My dog only gets to IRC on days of the month that are prime. [01:55]
xanthyos the jews seem to be more interested in tradition and ritual than ethics [01:56]
xanthyos the chabads anyway [01:57]
mircea_popescu what's ethics anyway. [01:57]
mircea_popescu PinkPosixPXE so is that you in the pic, actually ? [01:57]
xanthyos the "law" of torah [01:57]
mircea_popescu unclear wtf it means tho. [01:57]
PinkPosixPXE No, it's a girl I captured in a parking lot, and stuffed in my basement... [01:58]

mircea_popescu no, that was the question. [02:43]
undata mircea_popescu: you get that with host/vm, why docker? [02:45]
undata * mats_cd03 ^ [02:45]
undata I like docker for managing system state; I'm asking what the security value add is above just using the VM directly. [02:45]
* User_ ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [02:46]
mircea_popescu even better for "managing system state" would be making the system simpler. [02:46]
mats_cd03 the VM is for protecting you from docker, nto the other way around [02:46]
mircea_popescu so basically it's crud. [02:46]
mats_cd03 its not known to not be crud. [02:46]
mats_cd03 hasn't existed for long enough. [02:47]
undata mircea_popescu: docker does run the risk of merely snapshotting the wad of mess and saying "ok, this wad worked, kind of" rather than actually understanding system state [02:47]

ninjashogun see bottom 3 lines [03:50]
ninjashogun I just notice htat he's also being discussed in channel here now. (Someone pointed this out to me.) At first I assumed MP to have paid for this out of some weird strategy (since I came to MP with a small project recently, maybe he wanted to know if I still needed small amounts of money, etc.) But I thought you guys should see it. [03:51]

ninjashogun Anyway it's not how anyone does business. Please don't do this. [03:53]
BingoBoingo Well he's DOS'ing stuff from in here so he's probably getting paid by someone from elsewhere [03:54]
ninjashogun nobody would pay anyone to troll me from anywhere except here :) [03:54]

* assbot removes voice from disident [20:50]
bounce look here, the guy's proposing lots of regs so he can make his mark on history. then he can do one of two things: more regs, recommending less regs. what he cannot possibly do is keep regulatory levels the same as federal requirements because that deprives him of making his mark on history. [20:50]
bounce this goes even if it's the only possible choice. that it isn't, because the aml regs already make little sense and even more stringent rules therefore can only make even less sense. [20:51]

mircea_popescu yes, it has to work that way. some things gotta be fixed. [23:27]
mircea_popescu how are either of those two examples of limits ? [23:27]
