BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: As a great man once said "No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. You won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: The same person also said "When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to a bunch of little old ladies, at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an army without profanity, and it has to be eloquent profanity. An army without profanity couldn't fight its way out of a piss-soaked paper bag."
bitcoinpete: i'd love to hear some of the chinese profanity
bitcoinpete: was just watching videos of f-15s taking off the Liaoning
BingoBoingo: bitcoinpete: Really?
BingoBoingo: I was kind of just bringing up these quotes in the context of addressing scammers. It isn't enough to merely be better than the scammers through knowing. You have to make them answer for their purpose, and in doing so you have to use language that sticks

BingoBoingo: I also think he came around to an objection to shitcoin on first principles eventually.
jurov: i see he added himself "they will be worth less"

BingoBoingo: jurov: I see differences, the primary one being that at least shitcoins represent BTC denominated balances
fluffypony: jurov: yeah, there's lots of fuss about Cavirtex allowing deposits without the person being approved, and then they can't withdraw their deposit
jurov: but "bitcoin deposits from utside canada are prohibited"?
fluffypony: yes, they're obviously a bit retarded or very, very sneaky
fluffypony: they have a regulatory requirement to only deal with Canadians, so I don't understand why they even show the deposit screen/address for unverified customers
fluffypony: surely it's one line of PHP/Ruby/whatever they use
fluffypony: if (isverified == true) { }
BingoBoingo: Well, they are the fuckers who ran with the money they raised on Havelock aren't they?

BingoBoingo: PHP ======= MagicalFux, Ruby ===== {Kumala}
fluffypony: heh
BingoBoingo: I dunno why otherwise reasonable seeming people take to liking shit.js
fluffypony: I hate it
fluffypony: I do have an unbridled love for php for front-end work (Laravel for structure, Blade for templating), but business logic/actual work should never be done in the front-end
fluffypony: separation of liabilities
BingoBoingo: Well, A lot of things on the internet are better not existing on the web level at all.
fluffypony: true
fluffypony: it seems that everything is http services layered on top of or replacing other protocols nowadays
fluffypony: "Bitcoin's a great protocol! Here's a web wallet."
BingoBoingo: Not even that. The You Can Message Someone on Facebook, as a replacement for email is a catalyst of suck.
fluffypony: eugh
fluffypony: so glad I'm not on Facebook

BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: My biggest criticism of "paleo" is that practitioners emphasize dietary bullshit over actual factors contributing to human success like hygeine.
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: not at all
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: like, I use fluoride free toothpaste and detergent free soap
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Honestly I really dun give a shit about that anyways, detergents are just surfactants that aren't derived from fatty acids, as a class detergent is a meaningless designation

Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: this is true, but what Im saying is, I use dr bronner's.
BingoBoingo: Eh, I'm the sort that instead of using gold bond powders the nuts with zeasorb, because it offers moar power
Diablo-D3: yeah, and Ive never actually had that problem
BingoBoingo: I've never had a problem either beyond nuts sticking to thighs, because moist. The aim though is not merely to survive, but to make the worst case impossible.
BingoBoingo: Better living through knowledge of chemistry and all of that
Diablo-D3: I agree
Diablo-D3: but the problem is, you have to find what works
Diablo-D3: paleo is about using products that dont cause some sort of immune response or arent otherwise toxic
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: some people DO get this wrong and get weirdly hippy about it
Diablo-D3: they arent doing paleo, they're just being hippies
BingoBoingo: Eh, I mix poison ivy into salad at least once a year.
BingoBoingo: I try to keep my immune system in a state as close to total war as possible
Diablo-D3: yes, and thats a thing
Diablo-D3: I prefer removing as many irritants as possible
Diablo-D3: so my body CAN have an immune response
BingoBoingo: Immune response is important, but it has to point the right direction
Diablo-D3: like, grains/sugars/etc really fuck up your immune response
BingoBoingo: Nah, that shit's fuel. If that is your definition of an irritant...
BingoBoingo: I mean denying the monder human body that shit is asking for portal vein hypertension

Diablo-D3: [03:44:49] <BingoBoingo> Nah, that shit's fuel. If that is your definition of an irritant...
Diablo-D3: it can be a fuel but its not the most efficient
fluffypony: this just sounds like it's going to go into the "make your own silicon, write your own OS" territory
Diablo-D3: the only carbs I intake are naturally in vegs
Diablo-D3: fluffypony: it basically is BUT
Diablo-D3: you cant
fluffypony: exactly
Diablo-D3: because shit is only secure when everyone on the planet has audited it and said so

BingoBoingo: fluffypony: If BFL taught us anything it is that it takes little to make dedicated silicon for a dream architecture.
fluffypony: BingoBoingo: sure, in quantity, but if you're rolling it yourself for your own purposes?
Diablo-D3: fluffypony: something like the rpi works
Diablo-D3: its unlikely theres any major problems with it
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Why advertise it as that? Posit the thing as a student architecture.
Diablo-D3: although all nics ARE backdoored and can DMA anywhere in ram
BingoBoingo: An actual top down version of what RPi wants to be
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Yeah, ethernet is the big problem
fluffypony: BingoBoingo: someone needs to fab the silicon, and are you going to get an electron microscope to check that its to-spec?
Diablo-D3: you could strip the ethernet out and use usb to serial or w/e
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: RS-232
fluffypony: Diablo-D3: if we're going air-gapped for offline signing/decryption ethernet shouldn't be a concern
Diablo-D3: like I said, serial
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: niggers.txt
Diablo-D3: fluffypony: you have to update the software either way
fluffypony: Diablo-D3: true
Diablo-D3: fluffypony: and airgapped doesnt work with bitcoin
BingoBoingo: No, updating the software defeats an actual air gap
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: then hell
fluffypony: Diablo-D3: you can sign transactions offline
Diablo-D3: just use gpg on dos.
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Air gap on Dos can work
Diablo-D3: (yes, theres a gpg build out there somewhere for dos)
BingoBoingo: C is a more portable language than Java
Diablo-D3: claiming java isnt portable, however, is a bad argument
Diablo-D3: because, sadly, it really does work on tons of shit
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Not at all. I am jsut claiming C is more portable.
Diablo-D3: why? I dont know
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: C is portable to shit that should not be running C
Diablo-D3: anything written in modern C simply will not work on them without a lot of help
Diablo-D3: 99.9% of shit will break if char is not 8 bit, short is not 16 bit, and int is not 32 bit
fluffypony: "You should be also be cautioned that the MSDOS stack is not deep. You should not count on more than one or two pushes of the registers."
Diablo-D3: even though it is within the C specification for them not to be
Diablo-D3: (and yes, int cant be 64 bit either, some OS got this wrong and broke shit, long is the only one that should be native)
BingoBoingo: Still which of {C,Java} works best on Z80?
Diablo-D3: neither.
fluffypony: so someone needs to write GPG for BASIC?
Diablo-D3: C on 8 bit machines is horrid
fluffypony: 20 GOTO 10
Diablo-D3: the gpg for dos thing is obviously a 32 bit binary
BingoBoingo: The point of C is to be horrid, to be the last resort.
Diablo-D3: not really
Diablo-D3: Ive coded C for over 15 years
Diablo-D3: if you know how to use it, its a nice language
BingoBoingo: C is a nice language. I am not disputing that.
Diablo-D3: C is an absolutely fucking horrid language
Diablo-D3: I said "if you know how to use it"
Diablo-D3: it takes the better part of a decade to get there.
bounce: so what do you prefer? haskell? ruby?
Diablo-D3: bounce: I had a love affair with erlang for awhile
BingoBoingo: bounce: 68K assembly.
Diablo-D3: ruby is a fucking shit pile
bounce: too bad the z80 doesn't do that
BingoBoingo: TI-89 and classic Mac FTW
Diablo-D3: its like the guys who created it had no clue what the fuck a language was
Diablo-D3: and cargo culted it together
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: yay I have a ti-89
Diablo-D3: I need to take it apart though
bounce: anyway, mind sticking to the topic and present some viable engineering choices that'll work on z80? (as distinct from your personal preferences that work plenty fine on your desktop)
Diablo-D3: it hasnt been cleaned since I got it at the start of high school
Diablo-D3: and Im now 30.
Diablo-D3: I wipe the keys off sometimes, but theres shit just ground into it
BingoBoingo: bounce: Did I ever offer Z80 as an only option? I would kill for a multicore gigahertz class Coldfire dev board rated for server use
Diablo-D3: bounce: Im considering learning scala though
Diablo-D3: I dont hate the jvm. I dont even hate java all that much anymore.
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: I actually sold my TI-89 for money to buy weed
Diablo-D3: java 8 fixed a lot of the long standing issues java has
bounce: you were talking about z80, and I thought it was interesting enough to explore that a bit. still have a kaypro in an attic somewhere. should probably dust if off some time
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: I never use my ti-89
Diablo-D3: which is kind of sad
BingoBoingo: bounce: I like the Z80 as an example to suppose.
bounce: it's a good example since (I'm told, haven't investigated) various smart card type things have a z80-type core on board
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: My TI-89 met it's end in my usefulness when I realized the cheaper Mac Classic was basically the same thing.
Diablo-D3: yeah z80 is the best 8bit microcontroller cpu ever
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: I just needed a ti calc because it was mandatory for math classes in high school
Diablo-D3: best $150 I spent
BingoBoingo: I think asciilifeform is right about the Lisps being the future though
bounce: relevant for this channel is the gpg-card thingies. problem with those is that the source isn't available, though a spec is. an open source implementation would be nice, and perhaps cheaper than sourcing the closed-source thing.
Diablo-D3: loaded up video games on it
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: all languages are slowly becoming lisp, including lisp
Diablo-D3: lisp really is the best language ever created
BingoBoingo: Not really, clojure becomes less LISP every release
Diablo-D3: clojure never really was a lisp
bounce: so if you're looking for an embedded type project, that's as a good an angle as anything
fluffypony: Clojure thinks it's a lisp
fluffypony: so does Scheme
bounce: so which is more acceptably lisp-y, ruby or clojure? </troll>
BingoBoingo: Scheme is a LISP though
BingoBoingo: bounce: Python is probably more LISPy than Ruby or Clojure
fluffypony: python is definitely more lispy than both
bounce: how so?
BingoBoingo: bounce: The bedrock abstractions are more solid
Diablo-D3: the only lisps Im interested in is chicken and racket
Diablo-D3: bounce: ruby is just a mistake imo
Diablo-D3: like php is
fluffypony: ok breakfast time, bbl
Diablo-D3: it was written by people who clearly were not veteran programmers and understood no good patterns
BingoBoingo: Ruby is basically a python fork that broke the underlying interpreter
bounce: did they get around to plug the resource leaks in the reference interpreter?
BingoBoingo: PHP was a nobel but flawed attempt to make HTML a scriptable server language
bounce: lovely how it attracts nothing but n00bs and how even the core devs reflect that sad fact. a fractal of bad design, indeed.
Diablo-D3: BingoBoingo: I will agree ruby is very python inspired
BingoBoingo: In this way PHP was at least born with a purpose. Where as Ruby was born with "lol, suck cocks"
Diablo-D3: but all the bad parts
Diablo-D3: although Im not sure python has good parts
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Python is great as a modern alternative to BASIC
Diablo-D3: I dont understand how people can handle a language that successfully resists static analysis
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Well, they handle it because they don't have pubes yet.
BingoBoingo: It is a learnign language
Diablo-D3: thats a non-argument
Diablo-D3: I learned C when I was 14.
Diablo-D3: anything younger than 14 should be started on lisp.
BingoBoingo: That isn't how schools have been capable of thinking though. I learned turtle graphics at 11 on an Apple II with software written in 1995. Schools make the worst decisions.
Diablo-D3: yes, I could care less what schools do
Diablo-D3: you do not learn how to program at a school
Diablo-D3: programming is an art form
bounce: so you could care less. well, time to show some love and caring, eh.

Diablo-D3: TAoCP is rather straight forward imo
Diablo-D3: and once you learn how to program, any language works really
Diablo-D3: programming is about learning patterns and when to use them
BingoBoingo: Someone can probably be a gentleman without reading Clausewitz much like someone can program without school.
Diablo-D3: its no different than learning how to play chess
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Would you be up for a game of chess?
Diablo-D3: I havent played chess in long long time
Diablo-D3: and Im too distracted to enjoy it right now anyhow
BingoBoingo: Eh, I've imbibed quite a bit of ETOH since this conversation started
BingoBoingo: I'll even offer the four possible opening lines I'd play
bounce: I need a shower and to find me a board, but I could be up after.
BingoBoingo: As white I'd play the queen's gambit. As black responding to E4, the pirc, to d4 the slav, and to anything else a spanking.
BingoBoingo: This is pretty much the mode I've offered to any players approaching me in this channel
Diablo-D3: iirc there are no good online chess things anyhow
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: If you have algebraic notation IRC works fine
Diablo-D3: I hate doing that
BingoBoingo: Chess is a great game in that precise notation exists for every possible move
Diablo-D3: I dont think I even own a chess board anymore.

mircea_popescu: Diablo-D3 afaik graphene is still a ways off.
BingoBoingo: Diablo-D3: Actually I am hoping for a revival and enhancement of Silver-Zinc batteries
mircea_popescu: did that byrne kid ever manage to find his way here ?
BingoBoingo: ?
BingoBoingo: The logs are sparse the past couple days, so I doubt many newcomers...
Diablo-D3: mircea_popescu: in the next five years, graphene supercaps will become a commercial reality
Diablo-D3: they already have semi-functioning prototypes
Diablo-D3: their big problem right now is that they're so energy dense, they're hard to handle
mircea_popescu: Diablo-D3 i bet you that i won't be able to buy a graphene supercap battery at a convenience store in 2019.
Diablo-D3: mircea_popescu: well, no, you wouldnt
Diablo-D3: that'd be nonsensical
mircea_popescu: ...
BingoBoingo: If they were there I dunno that I would want to buy them
mircea_popescu: well whatever, radioshack
Diablo-D3: that'd be like buying a li-ion battery at a store
Diablo-D3: you dont
Diablo-D3: you need the safety mechanism so you dont kill yourself
mircea_popescu: some sort of consumer accessible outlet
Diablo-D3: Im surprised, btw, alkalines are even made anymore
Diablo-D3: they're old hat
BingoBoingo: ... Usually I buy lithium batteries at the store, Li-ion, LI-polymer and otherwise
mircea_popescu: ^
Diablo-D3: I put lithiums in anything that a regchargable is inappropriate for
Diablo-D3: like, devices that stay continuously powered more than 2 years, or go outside, or are clocks, etc
BingoBoingo: I have yet to see a Lithium 364 button cell
fluffypony: alkalines are still available here - just yesterday I had to buy some AAs and got to choose between alkalines, lithiums, and nimh rechargeables
Diablo-D3: I use lsd nimhs in all.... two devices that need batteries
Diablo-D3: well, that arent clocks or continuous long term shit
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform needed some batteries for his demo yest, i had the maitre d' scare up some batteries, he came back with two alkalines
Diablo-D3: my harmony remote, and my ti-89
Diablo-D3: thats _it_
Diablo-D3: I have nothing that uses batteries anymore
Diablo-D3: the two clocks and the temp sensors use lithiums for obvious reasons
BingoBoingo: I own more watches than other battery powered devices, but of the ones that don't operate on mechanical energy, solver oxide cells are the most prevalent.
bounce: what, no automatics?
Diablo-D3: bounce: nope
BingoBoingo: bounce: Automatics use mechanical energy
BingoBoingo: The rotor winds the spring
bounce: right. what was the electrical equivalent, 'kinetic' or something?
fluffypony: davout: bonjour
fluffypony: bounce: yeah, Seiko had "kinetic"
fluffypony: Citizen has solar
BingoBoingo: bounce: Kinetic is the seiko term, other manufacterers use different names because trademarks. That is for electrical charging by those means though.
BingoBoingo: Seiko still makes proper mechanical automatic movements though.
bounce: kid in school had a solar, very sparse design. just even matte background for the face, which also was the solar panel only you'd not notice.
fluffypony: bounce: I have 3 Citizen solars
fluffypony: lemme take photo
BingoBoingo: The sun's overrated. I'd kind of prefer an all tritium powered watch
bounce: used to have a... citizen? automatic. need fixing though, in the end it was off by half an hour a day. should've gotten it fixed while still in warranty. silly me.
BingoBoingo: Oh
BingoBoingo: bounce: It really depends on the particular watch whether it is worth saving or not.
mircea_popescu: quartzes rarely are.
BingoBoingo: bounce: Even in the worst case you want to keep them stored well in case everyone else with them decides they aren't worth saving and you end up with something rate
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I have yet to actually see a quartz automatic outisde of a few questionable seiko examples
mircea_popescu: what do you mean ?
mircea_popescu: ;;google quartz clock
gribble: Quartz clock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: <>; HowStuffWorks "How Quartz Watches Work": <>; Quartz Time Only Clock Movements | Klockit: <>
mircea_popescu: that thing ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Seiko has a mechanical powered quartz regulated movement they call "Spring Drive"
BingoBoingo: Seiko also has a mechanically recharged all electric quarts they call kinetic
mircea_popescu: oh oh. yeah some swiss makers actually tried using quartz oscialltors as an error limiter at some point
BingoBoingo: The couple I've seen inherited the worst parts of quartz and mechanical movements.
fluffypony: bounce:
fluffypony: you wouldn't be able to tell any of those are solar panels at a glance
mircea_popescu: exactly.
BingoBoingo: ANd the only I've known of were all made by Japs
mircea_popescu: perhaps resolvable, but i think people just gave up
BingoBoingo: Probably. It is hard to compete with a CR 2032 at anything.
BingoBoingo: I'd like to see more accutron like tuning fork movements though.
BingoBoingo: mechanicaly charged mass regulated would be nearly perfect.
mircea_popescu: judging by the excellent results electrostatic speakers show it's a wonder they've not tried that yet actually.

BingoBoingo: I have yet to see anything as beautiful as the original accutron movements.
BingoBoingo: The few I've worked on take 357 batteries though, and that is a lot of silver for a year and a half of function.
fluffypony: BingoBoingo:
fluffypony: I love the exposed resistor
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: That is literally the most boring part of the thing.
bounce: wonder how they do white solar panels.
bounce: on IIRC my watch is a casio instead. hm. doesn't really matter.
fluffypony: bounce: no clue, it's quite impressive that they make it look like a regular watch face
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Those two sections wrapped in wire are a tuning fork.

BingoBoingo: The tuning fork both keeps time and moves the hands
fluffypony: nice
fluffypony: are the batteries hard to come by?
BingoBoingo: Quartz coming later keeps time better, but only keeps time.
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Here batteries are easy to find, standard 357s
BingoBoingo: Just, don't try the other kind of 357
fluffypony: they're not badly priced in decent condition
BingoBoingo: Well, decent doesn't say too much... How many people alive can make them sing (I actually, literally mean sing)
fluffypony: BingoBoingo: sing by striking the tuning fork?
BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Not striking, resonating. That's what the coils of copper wire do. It's a fucking watch, not a rail gun.
fluffypony: although a pocket rail gun would be amazing
fluffypony: a:-P
BingoBoingo: A silver oxide cell would offer the worst possible discharge curve for that purpose though.

benkay: generalizing concepts. sounds like someone heard about 'general solutions' from someone else with a lil bit o programmery experience and decided it was important to do for their ideas as well.
benkay: "it's not enough that this is specifically stupid, i'm going to generalize this idiocy to the general case."
mircea_popescu: benkay that's exactly what happens. someone who was taught in primary school to "guess what words meran in context" instead of being beaten every time he failed to look up new words in the dictionary
FabianB: hmm.. Google can't find Jerusalina
mircea_popescu: grew up into an adult that proceeds on the basis of word recognition
mircea_popescu: that shit makes for excellent consumers and appaling "thinkers"
mircea_popescu: FabianB gotta admit it has a ring to it neh ?
bounce: I think the "jews make up a race according to western languages" premise mostly means the writer is still stuck in wwII-era propaganda.
mircea_popescu: bounce the part where early judaism was not tribal, but more akin to today's jehova witnesses is accurate
mircea_popescu: the middle part... that becomes complex
FabianB: mircea_popescu: does it exist or will it be built by you?
bounce: isn't it their creation story that groups them in various tribes, about 12 or so? though to call that a "race" is maybe a bit overly ambitious.
fluffypony: well jews in ancient israel were bound by a common belief, but it was also by birth
mircea_popescu: FabianB it's a play on how would a feminine jerusalem sound like
fluffypony: if you decided to follow the belief but you weren't born of the 12 tribes you weren't a jew
mircea_popescu: bounce we're talking actual history rather than orginal mythology tho
mircea_popescu: otherwise everyone was spawned by the fucking sun god.
bounce: what, you're saying their holy book can possibly be wrong? what malarky is this? :-p
mircea_popescu: lol
FabianB: mircea_popescu: hahaha, was already looking in argentinas pampas for tiny villages :)
fluffypony: bounce is right, though - they self-identified based on the son they were descended from
mircea_popescu: let me put it this way : once judaism became large enough they +m'd the channel.
bounce: this is true. you can get in, but it's not easy.
mircea_popescu: FabianB you know the expression, "next year in jerusalem". i just.. well... sexchanged it.
FabianB: hehe
mircea_popescu: but before it was large enough, there was no tribalism. most being... self made jooz.
bounce: better than islam, where getting in is relatively easy (just learn a book by rote and loud repetition), getting out... carries the death penalty. (literally)
mircea_popescu: islamob.
benkay: ;;later tell DiabloD3 lisp > scala.

cgcardona_: holy shit. fucking people.
fluffypony: looks like they scammed someone too
cgcardona_: so now that I have it set to enforce it will make someone enter my nickserv each time and if not kick them off of my nick?
bounce views nickserv as rather fascist already, nevermind nick enforcing. it's the thing to do on here, but, you know. can also argue that with only gribble it'd give more incentive to check with gribble first and foremost, and to accept no substitutes.
fluffypony: yes

mircea_popescu: here's a funny story : bar where we watered saturday night, had an advertising above the urinal. on that advertising, aqr code.

mircea_popescu: there's no "my" in anonimity.

mircea_popescu: davout ne confondre pas anonimite e pseudonimite, i say!
davout: anonymous, absence of name, not of identity
mircea_popescu: anonymous is absence of identity.
mircea_popescu: like, joe schmuck on reddit. is not a person.
mircea_popescu: it's not even a thing. it's gas.
mircea_popescu: "as it's use is very limited"
davout: mircea_popescu: i'd say fungibility is the absence of identity, anonymity is the absence of name, but i'm too tipsy on that delicious rosé champagne to even imagine arguing the point properly
mircea_popescu: stupid enough to not realise he can't have a "my" as nobody, clueless enough to fail to distinguish a verb from a possessive. this is reddit.
mircea_popescu: davout so argue it tomorrow.
mircea_popescu: curious to see how you'll argue cluster4 is not fungible with cluster3 or derpymcherp or w/e.
mircea_popescu: this entire shit is backwards. views, which are not fungible, people pretend are in fact fungible. then anons, which are absolutely fungible, people pretend like are not. apparently the web is quite counterintuitive.
davout: mircea_popescu: derps might be fungible as anonymous entities, entities we couldn't care to name, it doesn't really impede their ability to each own a bitcent
davout: brb
mircea_popescu: but that's irrelevant for this discussion innit.
mircea_popescu: the opinion of derp1 is exactly equal to the opinion of derp2 inasmuch as we don't know anything about 'em.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18993 @ 0.00099071 = 18.8166 BTC [+] {2}
davout: mircea_popescu: yes, but fungibility and anonymity lie in the observer, property lies with the things themselves
bounce: yeah, no. with davout on this one, "anonymity" is lack of a label, not necessarily lack of an underlying identity. on the flip side, you already know what jehova's witnesses will try and tell you without you needing their name, regardless of whether they offer their name. if they do, they're no longer anonymous. it doesn't affect your esteem for what they're trying to tell you.
mircea_popescu: davout the fact that the person "deep down" "twu wuvs" you is immaterial.
mircea_popescu: for all you know pet rocks have distinct personalities.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: looks like I lost the bet

thestringpuller: :(
mircea_popescu: bounce anon jehova's witnesses are not people.
mircea_popescu: to personalize they need to de-jehova-witnessize for you, before you.
davout: derp1 and derp2 might be fungible from our pov, but derp1 can still own 1 btc while derp2 owns 2
mircea_popescu: so ?
bounce: not to you. inside their own circles their worth is measured by their zeal.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: there's an H on end
mircea_popescu: but what happens inside the pet rock is uninteresting in this discussion.
mircea_popescu: fluffypony yeah k.
davout: mircea_popescu: it is, because knowledge of different informations translates directly to ownership, or non-ownership of bitcoins for example
mircea_popescu: unless and untill this becomes transpared to you it is immaterial.
mircea_popescu: after it becomes transparent to you, it already broke that anonimity.
bounce: soldiers are cannon fodder to you, individuals to themselves and their bosses. look, they even wear name tags.

mircea_popescu: "A 43-year-old programmer who helped set in motion a class-action lawsuit against the companies and became one of its five class representatives will not be present in the San Jose courtroom. He was shot and killed by the police last December."
mircea_popescu: funny how accidents work.
bounce: very funny indeed
davout: i don't think that my ability to distinguish derps is really related to their ability to own stuff, it is not necessary for me to be able to know they are able to destroy a bitcoin for them to actually be able to destroy a bitcoin
mircea_popescu: davout your ability to distinguish derps is however central to their ability to exist.
mircea_popescu: you can be bios, but you can not be zoon unrecognised.
mircea_popescu: so yes, animals they can be. people however, they can not be, unless recognised.
bounce: there's this conflation of "person" to mean "someone who matters (to me)", which is highly viewpoint-dependent. your basic definition appears to be "someone who matters in the bitcoin sphere and can be trusted not to fsck up (too badly)". might need a suitable word for that.
mircea_popescu: bounce it merely means "someone who can be distinguished from the others"
davout: what you're saying is pretty much that derps exist in a quantum superposition of owning, and not-owning stuff, and that their actual ownership resolves when i actually observe, aka measure them
mircea_popescu: which reduces to "someone who could, in principle, matter"
davout: right?
mircea_popescu: because the undistinguishable can't ever matter, by definition.
mircea_popescu: davout pretty good approach yeah
mircea_popescu: speaking of "different" derps is like speaking of photons as billiard balls.
davout: that is true if you consider that everything that matters is only what you have knowledge of
mircea_popescu: perhaps an excusable approximation in some narrow cases, but wrong in principle.
mircea_popescu: davout everythint that matters is only what COULD BE HAD knowledge of.
bounce: ``In ancient Rome, the word "persona" (Latin) or "prosopon" ([...]: Greek) originally referred to the masks worn by actors on stage.'' --wikipedia
mircea_popescu: bounce fun fact... that yielded romanian prosop, which means... towel.
bounce: those come in handy hitchhiking
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 10 @ 0.0671117 = 0.6711 BTC [-] {5}
bounce: anyway that doesn't help much, since "distinguishing from the others" implies a yardstick, that in turn is a choice bound by context
mircea_popescu: not so.
mircea_popescu: yardstick is a matter of measuring, and thus relegated to quantitative discussions. we're discussing qualitative matters here.
bounce: we're measuring the quality. when is someone a person? whether the scale is actually countable is immaterial.
bounce: s/is countable/has countable subdivisions/
mircea_popescu: nah.
bounce: you still end up with two ends of a stick. "person", "not a person"
mircea_popescu: how are these ends of a stick ? there's no continuum
bounce: or sides. you can discern both states, even if the distance between them is infinitesmal and only exists as an idea to boot
bounce: when's the liquour strong enough? well, if it's over $strength. something like that.
mircea_popescu: let's try a different tack. you know what a cog is. you also know what a sphere is.
mircea_popescu: good anonimity, just like good sphericity, relies on not being a cog. at all.
mircea_popescu: conversely, good cogicity, just like good personhood, relies on not being a sphere. at all.
davout: bounce: the way i understand the argument is that ownership is akin to the state of an electron, until you observe it exists in a superposition of states, it can only have a state when you observe it
mircea_popescu: now, this does not reduce to "liquor being strong ENOUGH"
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 19 @ 0.02838964 = 0.5394 BTC [-] {10}
mircea_popescu: it reduces to being liquour or oil.
mircea_popescu: good oil is not alcohol. good alcohol is not oil.
davout: speaking of which i'm on way to pop the second bottle, please disregard all my further comments
mircea_popescu: there's no serious consideration of an oil-alcohol mixture being "storng enough", as you won't drink vodka-canoia oil cocktails
bounce: disagree. it'd mean that the only good person be a totally non-anonymous person, so, real personhood is only open to, say, obama. or dubya.
mircea_popescu: bounce actually, misplaced shards of anonimity ruin personhood. which is why i keep having to ask derps posing as ceos here "who's we".
mircea_popescu: conversely, misplaced shards of personhood ruin anonimity. such as w/e, silk road guy.
mircea_popescu: "Now academics learn to take a paper or a class of papers, imitate the style, the organization; copy the phraseology, discuss the historical literature and find some wrinkle on the problem that makes it look like a contribution. This is what tends to be published, and this is what seems to be "original". And these works never survive the author."
mircea_popescu: because someone somewhere in a bureaucracy figured it's a good idea to fucking industrialise research.
mircea_popescu: may he never rest.
bounce: guy posing as "CEO" claiming to have lots of minions needs a good team. since claim made, up to him to back it up. that's not quite the same as requiring to know his every move or his every thought.
bounce: s/back it up/&, show he has such a team/ etc. bit forgetful with the details today
mircea_popescu: nobody requires to know his every move or thought in any sense.
bounce: that's be implied through "total non-anonymity" though
mircea_popescu: only iyo.
bounce: no. hence the conflation.
mircea_popescu: the criteria is good wot relations, not "knowing their every thought"
bounce: I'm not disagreeing with what you're trying to say, just that the terminology could stand improvement.
mircea_popescu: the devil himself knows not the thought of man
bounce: (yet god knows every thought of the devil's, and being a good little god... lets him be?)
mircea_popescu: if god actually knew every thought of the devil, he'd have not been surprised.
mircea_popescu: god'd like to. but tis impossible, inasmuch as the devil is human, and god is not that good.
bounce: you're saying the poor devil is unoriginal?
mircea_popescu: i am saying that the poor god is incapable.
bounce: oh well. AIUI paradise lost would beg to differ. haven't gotten around to actually reading the thing.
mircea_popescu: how's it differ ?
bounce: anyway, "good wot relations" means that you've met and dealt with a number of other people, and gathered their esteem, and in doing so gathered a total esteem enough to be deemed worthy of the community as a whole.
bounce: "liqour strong enough" if you will
mircea_popescu: understanding rather than esteem. the people you've dealt with are marks you may be recognised by.
mircea_popescu: in no sense is this a numeric problem,
mircea_popescu: which is why no numeric methods work for this task.
bounce: and every user has a differend yardstick, making the whole thing subjective to use.
mircea_popescu: two hours ago i said i suspect i'm weeks away from a major breakthrough in economics.
mircea_popescu: i think this discussion shaved a week off.
mircea_popescu: bounce im not sure you have a usable definition of subjective in mind.
bounce: also more or less saved me having to do a write-up
mircea_popescu: if it's the kneejerk "not usg diddled" then might as well discard it.
bounce: "subjective" as every user of the wot looking to form an opinion on some other user of the wot does so as he deems good, mayhaps taking into account that raters will also use their own criteria to rate with.
bounce: s/as /as in /
mircea_popescu: so inasmuch as good is done, this is optimal not subjective.
mircea_popescu: if he looked to do what he felt like it could have been subjective, as a proxy for aesthetic i guess.
bounce: what I mean is that even if the outcome is roughly the same for different onlookers, their conclusions are (supposedly) their own; like how you notice that there's no intl. standard of interpreting ratings. nor should there be.
mircea_popescu: which is ultimately why no numerical approach.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 6 @ 0.03099869 = 0.186 BTC [+] {5}
bounce: you could still try and throw statistics at it, but that doesn't change the underlying subjectivity
mircea_popescu: are you using "subjectivity" merely to note the fact that the numeric method does not apply ?
bounce: hmno.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 20 @ 0.063133 = 1.2627 BTC [-] {10}
bounce: WOT ratings can well mean different things to you and me. they're not even ment to be used "objectively", ie in a manner independent of people's opinions.
mircea_popescu: give me an example of such an objectively.
bounce: an objective measure? a metre, standard the world over.
mircea_popescu: enacted by ?
mircea_popescu: worst possible fucking example.
bounce: whether I take a tape measure to $derp or you do it, when done correctly we both will conclude the guy's length to be $whatever. that'd be objective. we both look at his WOT ratings, we might well draw different conclusions on the same data.
bounce: we could devise a "standard" scoring test for WOT ratings and still draw differing conclusions based on what we see
mircea_popescu: this is more akin to you using inches and me using cm.
mircea_popescu: both of these "objectively" examples you provide strictly adhere to your definition of subjectivity,
mircea_popescu: they exist as a result of people's opinions.
bounce: er? I gave one objective and one subjective example?
mircea_popescu: <bounce> an objective measure? a metre, standard the world over. < 1 ; <bounce> whether I take a tape measure to $derp or you do it, when done correctly we both will conclude the guy's length to be $whatever. < 2
mircea_popescu: your "done corectly" is there precisely because you too know this :
mircea_popescu: god help us if our opinions of these subjectives do not agree.
bounce: both're objective; I don't need a judgement call here, I look at the tape measure.
mircea_popescu: but you need a judgement call for the tape measure to exist in the first place.
mircea_popescu: you seem to be roughly in the position of the slave who says his master's will is divine in nature, because it's outside of his reach.
bounce: eh, I think we're past that. I can put three lava lamps on a table and count them. you'll count three too. no feels or beliefs involved. even if our counting system is ultimately arbitrary in it existence
mircea_popescu: while outside of his reach it may well be, his master's just another guy.
mircea_popescu: so numbers are your standard of objectivity, but then when i ask you <mircea_popescu> are you using "subjectivity" merely to note the fact that the numeric method does not apply ? you say no.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HMF] 50 @ 0.00600001 = 0.3 BTC [+]
bounce: well, what is "the numeric method"? I can devise and use a system of numeric scales based on how much I feel I know about someone else.

artifexd: Imagine you had a negative rating from mtgox with the comment "TROLL!!!!!!"

rithm: negrate from a scammer is a badge of honor
artifexd: Exactly. So you can't just look at the sum of the ratings and learn anything useful.
artifexd: Does anyone know of any wot visualization tools? I imagine something like bubbles with names and the lines connecting those bubbles are colored/weighted according to the rating.
bounce: sure you can. "person has been rated N times, some positive, some negative." -- negative ratings might well be the more interesting to read.
artifexd: When I said "look at the sum", I meant look at the single number which is the sum of all ratings.
bounce: the fact that it exists at all is an interesting datum, inasmuch it doesn't say "not rated yet"
bounce: if it's well over 10 or -10 that's a clear indication it wasn't by just one rating either
