benkay i always figured that was the insane war chest they have and the mountain of paper under which they'd bury anyone. [00:00]
benkay i guess tho that's an artifact of operating in an environment where they're not held liable for their work? [00:00]

mircea_popescu i'd say that more likely. [00:02]
mircea_popescu all in the name of "open society of knowledge" and "progress" and generally speaking the mistaken view that exploring the space of opportunities is more valuable than staying in one piece [00:02]
mircea_popescu basically, "self-seeking" addicted college kids being given the reins of the country. [00:03]
mircea_popescu never trust a baby boom, for the baby boomers are almost always the end of things. [00:03]
decimation yes, much ruin was brought by that generation [00:04]
asciilifeform von neumann cpu, 'c' ~= chinese backyard steel [00:04]
asciilifeform everybody can get behind the impalement of author of 'heartbleed' but problem goes deeper. [00:05]
decimation imagine if you could be publicly executed for distributing heartbleed [00:05]
decimation everyone from the programmer down to the bios writer [00:05]
decimation do you think comptuer archs would change? [00:05]
mircea_popescu they would have to [00:06]
mircea_popescu for physical lack of who to continue. [00:06]
asciilifeform or programmers would be shot every day, like nork army colonels [00:06]
asciilifeform and people would sorta get used to it [00:06]
mircea_popescu i mean you're basically asking, "suppose you could be killed by trying to fuck scorpions in the tail. do you suppose fucking habits would change ?" [00:06]
mircea_popescu dunno dood... [00:07]

decimation this is a pretty simple thought experiment, and the obvious conclusion is that computers (as they are now) are hopelessly insecure [00:07]
asciilifeform the 'computer industry' loves the crapfest, though. ('employment!' see etc) [00:08]
assbot Loper OS » Steam Lisp [00:08]
asciilifeform the only folks shafted: the users. [00:08]
decimation that kinda already puts us in north korea [00:08]
mircea_popescu well, security was not the first priority. it rarely is, when going over new space. [00:08]

mircea_popescu security wasn't high on the list of gold seeking miners, or of cowboys, [00:08]
mircea_popescu or of early seafaring explorers [00:08]
mircea_popescu magellan died of fucking stupidity. [00:08]
mircea_popescu but by now computing is coallescing, and once moore's law finally fucking dies (trompi be praised) [00:09]
mircea_popescu we'll finally be in a position to put some fences up and make sense of the damned thing. [00:09]
decimation yeah but the difference is that those first 'explorers' were generally unable to dominate the world's market [00:09]
asciilifeform security is only one casualty of the crud flood [00:09]
mircea_popescu decimation this is a false impression, artefact of your context [00:09]
mircea_popescu they dominated the "world market" of their stupidity. [00:09]
mircea_popescu what's "go west young man" ? [00:09]
decimation right, but it wasn't The West Powered By Intel [00:10]
mircea_popescu was exactly the same thing, in its time's typeface. [00:10]

decimation it is true that it seems like computing is coallescing. For instance, ascii's garbage-collector-on-a-chip sounds pretty feasible now, but would have been laughed at 10 years ago [00:14]

asciilifeform i know quite a few people who use hardware built before or shortly after they were born, for which no 'modern' adequate replacement exists [00:18]
asciilifeform the 'heirloom computer' is old, old hat. [00:19]
decimation the symbolics stuff is certainly an example [00:19]
asciilifeform there are countless other examples. visit a university laboratory. [00:19]
asciilifeform $800K mass spectrometer connected to pc at. [00:20]
* Shakespeare ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [00:20]
decimation even more modern, agilent lab gear that runs windows xp or 2000 [00:21]
asciilifeform these will get upgraded. because they're already running on crashy turd, no big change [00:21]
asciilifeform the things that never upgrade - run on boxes that have never crashed. [00:21]
decimation yeah that's a good point [00:21]
decimation I had an old IBM AT once. thing was built like a tank [00:22]
asciilifeform recently toured university's music lab. they have a player piano, similar to the well-known mechanical kind, but electronic - pressure sensors, a disk full of recordings of famous pianists playing. disk on ms-dos box. 386. [00:22]
decimation the amount of steel that went into producing the cabinet was impressive [00:22]
asciilifeform servos controlled by isa card [00:22]
decimation heh [00:22]
asciilifeform (incidentally, you can get usb fixtures that will talk to an isa card. unsuitable for the piano - no 'hard real time' guarantee on usb!) [00:23]

asciilifeform worse, unpredictably laggy. elaborate cache pyramid, easy to throw off [00:24]
decimation yeah it's like playing plinko with a real-time deadline [00:24]
mircea_popescu decimation> the amount of steel that went into producing the cabinet was impressive << i bought new desktop cases here. i could punch a hole threough the things [00:24]
decimation even in more modern stuff there is this effect. Look at features that are dying off in cell phones [00:24]
asciilifeform much of the supposed speed gains of recent decade were achieved using 'instruction re-ordering' [00:24]
asciilifeform which plays havoc with real-time anything. and with any attempt at hand optimization [00:25]
decimation << catalog of almost all known phones. Put in "keyboard" && "> 1.5 GHz clock" ... you get 4 results [00:25]
assbot Phone Finder - search for a phone by feature - [00:25]
mircea_popescu phone keyboards were insanity [00:25]
decimation yeah every computer I get has a thinner case [00:26]

benkay phone keyboards are still infinitely better than touchscreens. [00:26]
decimation yeah, but you pay. [00:26]
asciilifeform an empty '2u' rack case is 300 usd or so [00:26]
mircea_popescu benkay but still unusable. [00:26]
decimation mircea, are you saying the touchscreen is a better interface for typing? [00:26]
mircea_popescu no lol. imsaying wtf typing on your phone. [00:27]
mircea_popescu the name is PHONE [00:27]
benkay old man [00:27]
decimation yeah that's a good point [00:27]
benkay i grew up typing on them [00:27]
mircea_popescu now that's sad. [00:27]
benkay with T9 i could hammer out punctuation-perfect anything without even looking. [00:27]
asciilifeform chording keyboard would've worked great on phones [00:27]
decimation well, I would argue that physical phone keyboards are a better match for the occasional typing needed, compared to a touchscreen input [00:27]

decimation yeah I agree, why no chording interface [00:28]
decimation or hell, I would even enter morse code [00:28]
mircea_popescu decimation i'd rather have to whislte 8 baud into it than have to type on tha small shit [00:28]
mircea_popescu btw : why no whistle interface for smartphones yet ? [00:29]
decimation I agree, but if you are going to eat turds they might as well have a good keyboard [00:29]
mircea_popescu fucking "innovation" consisting of everyone making the same 3 games and 2 apps over and over AND OVER again [00:29]
mircea_popescu i bet you most people could whistle more wpm than they natively type [00:30]
decimation right, that's my point about phones (ascii has pointed this out before) - they are all converging on iphone clones [00:30]
asciilifeform morse is eminently learnable [00:30]

asciilifeform 'You can routinely find lecturers with more than a hundred published papers and you marvel at these paradigms of human creativity. These are people, you think, who are fit to challenge Mozart who wrote a hundred pieces or more of music. And then you get puzzled that, in this modern world, there should be so many Mozarts - almost one for every department. The more prosaic truth emerges when you scan the titles [20:22]
asciilifeform of these epics. First, the author rarely appears alone, sharing space with two or three others. Often the collaborators are Ph.D. students who are routinely doing most of the spade work on some low grant in the hope of climbing the greasy pole. Dividing the number of titles by the author's actual contribution probably reduces those hundred papers to twenty-five. Then looking at the titles themselves, you'll see [20:22]
asciilifeform that many of the titles bear a striking resemblance to each other. "Adaptive Mesh Analysis" reads one and "An Adaptive Algorithm for Mesh Analysis" reads another.

benkay well i'm probably wrong, but STM doesn't actively work against KR - just refuses to help him in his immoral quest [20:41]
mircea_popescu you are not humble and therefore can not be given a ton of power. [20:41]
benkay "Imagine, for instance, that 98% of the players are unfailingly nice to each other, but unfailingly cruel to the remaining 2% (who they can recognize, let’s say, by their long noses or darker skin—some trivial feature like that). Meanwhile, the put-upon 2% return the favor by being nice to each other and mean to the 98%. Who, in this scenario, is moral, and who’s immoral? The mathematical verdict of both eigenmoses and eigenjesus is [20:41]
benkay unequivocal: the 98% are almost perfectly good, while the 2% are almost perfectly evil. After all, the 98% are nice to almost everyone, while the 2% are mean to those who are nice to almost everyone, and nice only to a tiny minority who are mean to almost everyone. Of course, for much of human history, this is precisely how morality worked, in many people’s minds. But I dare say it’s a result that would make moderns uncomfortable." [20:41]
mircea_popescu benkay you read what, the book ? saw the movie ? [20:41]
benkay i've only seen the movie. [20:41]
benkay i'm referring to the character in the play/movie. [20:42]
mircea_popescu yes well. more is a loyal subject of the king. [20:42]
mircea_popescu what do you mean "work against" ? [20:42]
benkay yeah, good question. [20:42]
mircea_popescu what is this revolutionary scandalous licentiousness where a subject may be allowed to pass himself as moral agent equal to his sovereign ? [20:42]

benkay divorce ;) [20:45]

mircea_popescu benkay you will note that more only forms a moral judgement once he is no longer subject to his king [20:48]
mircea_popescu ie, once they get that schmuck to lie under oath and convict him of treason [20:48]
decimation indeed, giving those loyal subjects universal sufferage solves nothing [20:49]
benkay that's when he discloses it. it's clear he's had the opinion for a long time. [20:49]

mircea_popescu here's an interesting if unrelated point : what characteristic of classical english theatre, cca 1600s, was shared by both classical french and italian, but not ever since ? so that 99.x% of all good plays, all good actors and all good performances have this one thing in common, that's not been seen again ?

decimation well, I don't have french or italian, but Shakspeare's plays were ... poetry [20:57]
mircea_popescu turns out, it's that they were all produced for a small audience of the same people. [20:57]
mircea_popescu consequently the producers were forced to iterate a lot and fail fast [20:58]

The ship may vote this and that, above decks and below, in the most harmonious exquisitely constitutional manner: the ship, to get round Cape Horn, will find a set of conditions already voted for, and fixed with adamantine rigour by the ancient Elemental Powers, who are entirely careless how you vote."

mircea_popescu in other words, two mice disagreed once on how to split a chunk of cheese they had found. so the cat ate the cheese, and the mice. [21:05]

asciilifeform i never understood the popularity of the crud. an ip-kvm is what, a few hundy? why attach proprietary strange to your front bus? [21:12]
decimation well, to me the major attraction beside the ip-kvm is the power cycle feature [21:13]
decimation but that can be had for even less money honestly [21:13]
asciilifeform the high-end kvm have power relays [21:13]

decimation yeah you are right ascii, but you do realize that nearly all public and private entities in the US fall into that category [21:15]
decimation here's how the SEC put it: [21:16]
assbot Investor Alert: Bitcoin and Other Virtual Currency-Related Investments | [21:16]
decimation "Not insured. While securities accounts at U.S. brokerage firms are often insured by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) and bank accounts at U.S. banks are often insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), bitcoins held in a digital wallet or Bitcoin exchange currently do not have similar protections." [21:16]
decimation why would you want to live outside the benevolent "protection" of USG? [21:17]
decimation honestly that "alert" is a pretty good pitch for Bitcoin [21:18]
thestringpuller how would you even insure bitcoins and who would insure them? [21:22]
thestringpuller only MP has the capital to actually insure anyone... [21:22]
thestringpuller (insure anyone worht insuring) [21:23]
mircea_popescu nobody can insure bitcoin in the sipc/fdic sense, because nobody can print them. [21:23]
mircea_popescu that type of insurance is typical manufacturer insurance, "that the product be free of defects or replaced" [21:24]
thestringpuller what about the sense of car insurance? [21:24]
mircea_popescu and so in this sense, it's not that bitcoin isn't insured in that way. it's moreover that bank deposits etc aren't, and the continuance of the fraudulent pretense to the contrary promulgated by various usg agencies among which the sec above strictly depends on it not being needed. [21:24]
thestringpuller wow [21:25]
thestringpuller profound... [21:25]
