Vexual: g'day cazalla
cazalla: hey Vexual
Vexual: how are ya mate?
cazalla: tired, missus is out getting hair done so im stuck with baby
cazalla: you?
Vexual: yeah painfully sober
Vexual: did you see big clive palmer with al gore?
cazalla: nah, i don't follow it closely nor do i vote
cazalla: what's he up to?
Vexual: he flew gore in to stand next to him at a press conference and give the nod to repealing the carbon tax with a view to setting up interational emmissions trading
cazalla: on his own dime or taxpayers?
Vexual: well there are no details
Vexual: hes a funny bugger
cazalla: you would've loved dinner last night, crumbed rabbit, pan fried for 5 and then into oven for 30m
Vexual: he rolled up to parliment in his vintage silver shadow a few weeks back, van morrison blasting, hopped out and gave a speech to the waiting press about how politicians should pay for their own cars
Vexual: what did you have with it?
cazalla: rocket salad
cazalla: and some thai dipping sauce from coles heh
Vexual: that sounds too good
cazalla: have a bunch of livers to make pate with on weekend too
Vexual: rabbit pate is a thing?
cazalla: supposedly, i've never had or made it before, i've been keeping livers frozen as it didn't seem worthwhile to make a small amount and i butcher them as needed so it's not like i have a lot of livers at once
cazalla: i can't imagine it taste too different from chicken pate etc
Vexual: maybe not

Vexual: its about $16kilo dressed
mircea_popescu: o look at all the logs
mircea_popescu: !up Ken`
moiety: I've been thinking about salmon since you left
mircea_popescu: came out pretty good
moiety: i'm gonna have to get some today
Vexual: skin on needs to be fryed hard on that side
cazalla: skin is the best bit
Vexual: yeah but if it's not fried fast enough it's chewy
mircea_popescu: ;;later tell bitcoinpete not so sure i did. o wait, right you are
assbot: Most wrong and absolutely wrongest pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
gribble: The operation succeeded.
mircea_popescu: cazalla i usually throw it away
mircea_popescu: this sushi place i go to has salmon skin rolls, i'm like... wtf, make me an orange and banana peels salad next
Vexual: i remove it just for knife skills
cazalla: sacrilege
cazalla: i wish i could buy skin only
moiety: ew
Vexual: lets do a deal
Vexual: the diff in price at the shop is more than the knife skills and the weight combined
moiety: they left the scales on haddock once in a restaurant i as at. i don't know if it was a mistake or that happens anywhere in the world but just.. no.
mircea_popescu: AirbndUberApp, that sounds unavoidable.
Vexual: cazalla, remember these people probabl;y get real atlantic salmon too
mircea_popescu: "it's like airbnb of messaging and uber of boarding houses rolled into a joint and whazzup dude ?"
Vexual: we get it's cousin

mircea_popescu: moiety: i was marooned on the sofa for some time due to a rather fast large spider travelling around my livingroom floor <<< ahahaha so cute
cazalla: Vexual: how about aussie salmon :P ugh
mircea_popescu: bloctoc: they would have to be sold at a later date since there are no buy orders yet. << actually that 25 was a buy order iirc
Vexual: i love me some aussie salmon
cazalla: really?
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal: Example was. If Bitpay is worth 1Billion usd, FB forks over 1 Billion USD, FB valuation stays same << this is an example out of the "spherical chicken in vacuum" variety.
cazalla: Vexual: i always throw them back
Vexual: what are you trying to catch?
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal: The site profits off total volume, not someone forking over a risky bet on one side << nobody prevents you from covering the short end after bet is approved.
mircea_popescu: if you figure your odds are 2:5 put 2 btc on the short odds then put .8 on the long odds and there you go.
moiety: scottish salmon is lovely cazalla
Vexual: mircea_popesu:saw your blog salmon, looked nice and fat; was it local?
dub: I dont think aussie salmon has anything to do with salmon
cazalla: dub: spot on
moiety: oh
cazalla: it's foul
mircea_popescu: Vexual ya
cazalla: Vexual: tailor, whiting, bream, kingies
mircea_popescu: dub agreed. it's prolly scottish salmon
cazalla: get some leather jacket too
Vexual: is that in order>?
cazalla: aussie salmon is a great game fish but shitty eating
dub: cazalla: if aussie salmon is what I think it is then you are probably fucking it up
cazalla: Vexual: depends on time of year and where I am, I don't do much fishing down here in Melbourne, more so when I go up Sydney with my brother/father
Vexual: its called kahawai in nz
Vexual: aussie salmon
dub: you need to bleed it
cazalla: dub: maybe I am but I've tried numerous times and it always taste awful
cazalla: yeah I've bleed it
Vexual: did you ever smoke it?
cazalla: nope, how's that?
Vexual: well its an oily fish, so it smokes well
cazalla: i mean, you can get it at the fish market for 2.99 a kg that's how bad it is
moiety: smoked salmon is gorgeous
dub: its not oily if you bleed it
Vexual: where are you from dub?
mircea_popescu: <dub> its not oily if you bleed it << he's found the cure for colesterol.
dub: dublandistan
Vexual: in australia we call what you know as salmon ocean trout
Vexual: and it'll slap you in the face its so good
Vexual: but then theres aussie salmon, which isnt salmon
Vexual: but thats what we call it
Vexual: coz is tastes gooode
assbot: Last 4 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
benkay: !b 4
benkay: Vexual what's wrong with you
benkay: when did you start making sense
benkay: who's taken over Vexual's computer?
Vexual: temporarily sober
moiety: he's sober today
benkay: o wait i read that in the log!
benkay: my sympathies
assbot: This is a thing: Greenscreen-clad workers who secretly flip models' hair during shampoo commercials. ht /MakingOfs
dub: just about got my cholesterol bled out on the way home
dub: pulled out from outside bar, dodge slow traffic lane, wot in clear lane, oncoming bbw buts across gab in slow lane into mine
dub: gap*

dub: ABS engaged, no seatbelt yet, jimmies retracting

davout: melbourne
Vexual: oh
Vexual: sydney oysters are really good, its a thing
Vexual: and yes, they are provided open, because you are not an otter
BingoBoingo: What, I'm hairy and spend a lot of time in the water
Vexual: yes you can probly open an oyster, but in polite company..
BingoBoingo: Fuck you! I'm an otter!

BingoBoingo: What brings you here today Vallance?
Vallance: Well, just trying to become more pro-active about using the WoT and I follow MPOE quite a bit and enjoy the opinions this channel shares.
Vallance: It's becoming increasingly more difficult to find a place to have an intelligent conversation about Bitcoin in public on the internet.
bloctoc: !ticker MPEX F.DERP
BingoBoingo: Vallance: It is indeed a problem
BingoBoingo: Vallance: What other sort of stuff do you do in the republic of Bitcoin?
Vallance: Myself and a couple others run a small Bitcoin exchange known as BitSpot. It's not an exchange as in the sense of BitStamp or BTC-E, it's more in the sense of CoinMama or the former BitInstant
BingoBoingo: Interesting
[]bot: Bet placed: 2 BTC for Yes on "World Cup 2014: Germany to net more than 7 goals" Odds: 92(Y):8(N) by coin, 90(Y):10(N) by weight. Total bet: 6.36090125 BTC. Current weight: 61,518.
Vallance: We were hoping to target our suburban town and cause a good stir but our physical business traffic isn't near what we hoped.
BingoBoingo: Well, Kentucky...
Duffer1: i've never heard of coinmama
Vallance: They've been around for a little bit, the main thing about them is that they accept credit cards and debit cards.
Vallance: I have no idea how it's working out for them though.
BingoBoingo: Ah, Ashland is in the inconvenient part of Kentucky
Vallance: Yeah, it's almost like trends and technology are a couple years behind for most people here.
Vallance: Although I do believe there are large sums of people who could benefit from Bitcoin in the area
BingoBoingo: Kind of hoping Ashland was closer to Paduca which would be a reasonable drive
Vallance: Yeah, the farthest someone has came to us has been from Cincinatti
Vallance: Actually it is this guy, just came down last week:
assbot: Andy Schroder -
assbot: Invest | BitSpot
Vallance: It's something we're working on, yes.
Vallance: It's just the problem with juggling the legalities and how things would "technically" work.
punkman: no that's not the problem
Duffer1: TaT said it earlier
Duffer1: what happens when paypal enters the room and says "thanks for warming my seat."
bloctoc: I heard today from reliable sources that gas stations don't want a phone that close to their pumps. needs to be bluetooth.
Vallance: Well, the vision I have in mind is to form somewhat of a decentralized liquidity network that anyone could become a part of either through a stake in the liquidity or operating an ATM.
BingoBoingo: Vallance: A physical location in the US and an investment solicitation... seems dangerous...
Vallance: Yeah, that's why we have the brakes on.
Vallance: Thinking of re-structuring our business affairs
punkman: did you IPO already?
Duffer1: i hear argentina is nice :P
Vallance: no, not at all.
Vallance: The truth is we started out just as anyone would with Bitcoin trading I suppose
punkman: most people start with the CSS
Vallance: Next thing you know it snowballs into a real business
bloctoc: Do you have an indication that ATMs are providing liquidity?
bloctoc: I haven't seen anyone boasting about how much money their ATM is making.
Vallance: I believe the ATMs will build good infrastructure for Bitcoin and associate it with new people
Vallance: Also the ATMs would help lower the costs of transaction fees that people are facing by using Western Union & MoneyGram
punkman: so where are you at now, roughly how much BTC volume per month?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 48 @ 0.04749499 = 2.2798 BTC [+]
BingoBoingo: !up Vallance
Vallance: A decent day is around $10,000 worth of volume a day. I know it's not huge, but we don't want to promote more than we can handle.
BingoBoingo: Vallance: Honestly I'd kill the Invest page now
Vallance: Our margin is 10% both ways.
bloctoc: $10,000 through an ATM? or is that on the internet?
Vallance: That's total
punkman: Vallance: not too bad
BingoBoingo: And start flensing the javascript on the site.
bloctoc: yeah that's a nice thing you got going
Vallance: You're right, I will turn it off right now, just totally forgot in all honesty. We're understaffed.
punkman: you don't want to use Counterparty either
pankkake: ;;ticker --market bitcoin-central --vol
gribble: 63.36856219
Vallance: I've had a lot of chats with the founders of Counterparty and Counterwallet, I feel pretty good about their platform.
Vallance: I'm honestly surprised about how it's not more popular?
Vallance: Besides Counterparty I only have experience with Mastercoin, which I'm not a big fan of
BingoBoingo: Both platforms can have their problems.
punkman: they only have problems
bloctoc: Vallance are you providing KYC/AML as part of your network? I'm asking because I have a Lamassu
pankkake: well mastercoin is made by people who don't know what they are doing, counterparty is in a slighly better position
Vallance: Yes, that's the plan.
Vallance: The people who run our ATMs (or could even be theirs) would just need to handle cashing out the machine and maintenance
BingoBoingo: So... What's the procedure if I just drive in with a shoebox full of cash?
Vallance: At an ATM or within our office?
Vallance: We haven't had anyone drive in with a shoebox yet
Vallance: You would be surprised at the old, nearly looking homeless people who have sold us a handful of Bitcoin though
BingoBoingo: Vallance: In your office.
Vallance: Didn't even know how to transfer it
Vallance: Scan your ID and sign a piece of paper
BingoBoingo: Person comes in with a shoebox of cash, and a printout of an address to pay to with a GPG signature.
punkman: Vallance, register with gribble, you can probably pick up some good volume marketmaking on OTC
punkman: oh never mind
punkman: you are authed
Vallance: That's what I did, I've been really wanting to become more active here.
Vallance: I've lurked the irc logs and the trilema blog quite a bit.
BingoBoingo: ;;rate Vallance 1 Lending +v
gribble: Rating entry successful. Your rating of 1 for user Vallance has been recorded.
Vallance: We're really trying to re-work our current system and way of handling things first and foremost. We started with the p2p trading and the problem is we're still operating in that fashion. People enjoy the broker-client relationship but it just doesn't scale that well.
BingoBoingo: Vallance: P2P trading is probably where the better margins are.
BingoBoingo: If you go exclusively mass market Paypal eats your lunch and people who hate paypal settle for BitStamp's two cans, a string, and a rectal probe
Vallance: I know, it's really insane at how hard it is to move money around the USA.
BingoBoingo: If you were to offer a network of atms across a region, maintain an office for inperson service, and have some limited interaction with the web you could carve a nice niche.
Vallance: If it was up to me then I would've moved to Panama, but my wife wasn't having it.
BingoBoingo: Panama's overcrowded
Vallance: That's the goal Bingo.
Vallance: I'm honestly open to anywhere else but here
BingoBoingo: Also, since money transmitting across the whole US is a pain, just license in kentucky, a few neighboring states, and the rest of the US can be serviced by other people.
BingoBoingo: At a minimum probably grab licenses for Illinois, Ohio, and Tennessee
Vallance: As far as geographical area, I don't see any real competition in any of those areas, including Kentucky.
Vallance: or anyone showing interest yet
BingoBoingo: Well, the midwest and mid south are underserved.
Vallance: We've had quite a few people travel about 100 miles to exchange
Vallance: What blows my mind is the type of people we've encountered that is involved in Bitcoin
BingoBoingo: I'd consider the 6-8 hour drive if I had fiat to dispose of.
Vallance: Also most of our online business is composed of small transactions ranging from $100-$300
Vallance: That is where we make our margins, it isn't that much to them.
Vallance: At the end of the day though it adds up for us
Vallance: In the works of trying to negotiate a deal with Western Union that would allow people to send us payments through their service as a "Bill Payment" so they would only have to pay $5
assbot: A SWAT Team Blew a Hole in My 2-Year-Old Son | Alternet
pankkake: so they moved up from dogs. great.
Vallance: Wow, that is insane.
Vallance: Even if the child survives what about the loud deafening bang and flash that happened right over top of him
Vallance: I'm sure that will have a permanent effect
punkman: BingoBoingo: and you want to drive around with shoeboxes full of cash
punkman: you aren't even gonna make it to the gasenwagen
punkman: Vallance, you can !up yourself now
Vallance: Punkman, thanks
BingoBoingo: punkman: You can still fit a lot of pennies in a shoebox
punkman: BingoBoingo: I suppose they won't care so much about dogecoins
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11200 @ 0.00082267 = 9.2139 BTC [-]
BingoBoingo: punkman: Vending machines are still a think. Probably the best way for a vending machine operator to get bitcoin from vending machines is... Exchanging the cash directly.
Vallance: I had someone contact me a couple months ago about KYC/AML Identification services. They may have been a new company, can't clearly remember. They are supposed to streamline and handle all your compliance requirements for you when interacting with customers on exchanging funds.
Naphex: Vallance: i'm not sure how many people will handover 3rd party data
Naphex: or how many exchanges/bussiness will want a 3rd party holding highly private data
Vallance: That's how I felt too
Vallance: It's honestly one of the things that I'm most torn about. In all reality I want to know as least as possible.
Vallance: I just want to know if the money you're sending is good, that's all I would like to know but then the government and state have to get involved.
Naphex: one of the problems with 3rd party validation, is who would get goverment wrath. I doubt they'd be going after the validation service instead of the exchange
Naphex: everyone just attacks the person who moves the money, so might as well just do your own AML/KYC
Vallance: The only real problem as far as moving money has went has been with Chase Bank, they're horrible.
Vallance: Credit Unions are the ideal people to bank with but unfortunately my preferred one around here isn't a part of the CU Swirl Network
Vallance: Hey, does anyone know what is going on with ?
Naphex: Vallance: never heard of it before, is that binary options?
Vallance: I seen a few accusations fly around at, I've been following their business seeing how it goes since they came out
Vallance: Yeah but they don't publish their feeds and now it doesn't even seem like they are paying out immediately (that's something I don't understand with automated services and Bitcoin)
Vallance: The biggest thing of it all is that they are a Gold Member at the BitcoinFoundation
Naphex: well flashing a Bitcoin Foundation Gold Member
Naphex: is in no way a sign of trust :)
Vallance: Oh, trust me I know
Vallance: They were shilling for them in a couple press releases on TBF
pankkake: so they still vouch for services - they have learned nothing
Vallance: but what gets me is that they don't even show where they are getting their data from, or will they disclose it
Vallance: They were very open about that.
punkman: Vallance: does start the timer when they see your tx at zero conf?

assbot: BTCOracle | bitcoin binary options trading
Naphex: punkman: probably, i'd suck to do 60seconds binary options with 3 confirmations :)
Vallance: I've only tested it like twice with small amounts, I don't remember.
Vallance: Yeah I really like BTCOracle
pankkake: they're in my non-bitcoin web of trust
BingoBoingo: Vallance: Are you or your business in the foundation?
punkman: pankkake: do they start the timer at zero conf?
pankkake: I don't know, I never used it myself
punkman: can't believe no one cares to put this in their FAQ
Vallance: The TBF hasn't even done anything positive for Bitcoin, all they have done is promote companies that end up ripping people off.
Vallance: They also made themselves a target to be slaughtered by the media because of their scandals
pankkake: " We use the time of the transaction from to determine the exact second where the option was created, and then we use the list of mtgox transactions that is available via the mtgox historic API to determine both the opening price and the closing price of the option. "

pankkake: " In case of lag from timestamp, we will use the timestamp from our own client. We will always check for the earliest possible timestamp we can get to ensure you have the smoothest experience possible. "

mircea_popescu: the collision was, some guy made an order, trilema came back "pay x". he didn't. months later, other guy made order, trilema said "pay x" same x.
mircea_popescu: has nothing to do with cookies or such
moiety: mew
ThickAsThieves: So to distill your post, are you saying that we give up freedom for i-cant-believe-its-not-freedom because it's easy/comfortable/safe and now you want some real-butter IRC because you tasted real-butter bitcoin? Or are you just pointing out that people typically think they are more free than they really are (or, at least, willing to acknowlege).
mircea_popescu: im pointing out that now it just became cheaper to have actual freedom
mircea_popescu: and so irrespective of anyone's wish, that's what we'll do.
moiety: ThickAsThieves: I've heard some places are taking taxes out automatically without saying so, is the 91 equivalent to some income tax rate or such? << totally can't pinpoint exactly. in one breath they say it's their fee, in the next it's the banks but i've never had fees from my bank for incoming before. lesson learned.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves to round out this point, do you know how justice worked in classical greece ?
ThickAsThieves: maybe i used to, now i just know what i see in movies
ThickAsThieves: if freedom is cheaper, isn't it also less valuable?
mircea_popescu: well basically, anyone having a problem with someone could sue before the city. the arguments reduced to "the other party sucks". if the suit was successful the other party was banished (killed, originally, but then they softened).
ThickAsThieves: like maybe it's just incantbelieveitsnotfreedom, just in a bigger box
mircea_popescu: if not, the accuser was.
ThickAsThieves: so each had equal risk
mircea_popescu: now contrast this with the very invasive modern style, as epitomised by the us system : you're allowed out of prison as long as you promise to not x y z
chetty: the counter party risk is something we really need
mircea_popescu: there's this constant negotiation and apportioning of things.
mircea_popescu: the greeks didn't have it. it was an all or nothing affair.
ThickAsThieves: except it surely wasnt for everyone
mircea_popescu: either you sue this guy under the title that he's basiclaly human waste,
mircea_popescu: or else stfu
mircea_popescu: whereas in english law you had a billion different causes for action. you can sue saying "this is a nice guy that has my cow"
ThickAsThieves: surely some bribed and pulled strings and framed people
mircea_popescu: famously plato tried to bribe the jury with 30 minae in socrates' case
mircea_popescu: this, in open court.,
mircea_popescu: (amusingly, 30 minae is also what neaira's ass cost.
mircea_popescu: anyway. it's my understanding that it's that apportioning that's the cause of evil.
mircea_popescu: just like an artisan is exactly NOT the guy who has a three ring binder telling him how to move and what shovel to use when, as per company policy
mircea_popescu: a free man is exactly NOT the guy who has to make a deal as to anything with anyone. none of this "to fly on the plane you must turn off your portable perfume dispenser" bs.
ThickAsThieves: while i dont disagree, it does kinda feeling we're just bitching that liars and scammers exist
mircea_popescu: how so ?
ThickAsThieves: well you are arguing for transparency, truth, efficiency, "realness"
ThickAsThieves: opposed to compromise, deception, obfuscation
mircea_popescu: i dun think so.

chetty: ThickAsThieves, well it grows on you :)
mircea_popescu: where's that hobbes quote about how everyone's life is basically the result of surrender to the state, which may at its option dispose of it ? thus everyone's a slave ?
mircea_popescu: fundamentally, it used to be cheaper to surrender, now it's cheaper to not. fundamental change of paradigm

mircea_popescu: justusranvier "We’ll see why nobody uses arbitrarily-complex verbal contracts in practise by looking at what happens when something goes wrong." << this is nonsense. marriage is always and in all places the most complex contract, and almost always verbal.

mircea_popescu: in the news : whatsapp revenue climbs to record 3.8 bn for quarter 2 (about $8500 per user), making the ~250mn profit trickling down to facebook slightly better than what it'd have got if it simply bought gilts for 20bn.
justusranvier: mircea_popescu: I consider marriage contracts to be relatively simple, especially the verbal ones before the state started getting involved.
mircea_popescu: how do you score simpleness then ?
mircea_popescu: and they are still verbal today.
justusranvier: If a contract is fully specified in some tangible form, then the amount of entropy in the explaination is inversely proportional to the simpleness.
mircea_popescu: so by this measure marriage contracts are the most complex contracts that can exist.
asciilifeform: justusranvier: let's try degenerate case. 'mr x owes mr y the following amount, in satoshis...' [followed by a 100MB turd from rng]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not even going there, we supplement "meaningful" to serve his position.
asciilifeform wonders if anyone's ever crapped out a contract containing 'halting problem'
mircea_popescu: the eastern sages, yes
Mats_cd03: asciilifeform: hahahaha lol.
justusranvier: Marriage: party A provides resources. Party B provides certainty of genetic lineage.
justusranvier: If either side fails to perform the contract no longer exists.
justusranvier: Before the State took over and made things rediculous
mircea_popescu: this is a silly view of marriage.
mircea_popescu: yesterday i had a girl over, and the local girl and the new girl managed the use of the kitchen together.
mircea_popescu: also they shared the bidet.
mircea_popescu: this was in the contract.
mircea_popescu: now you go ahead and write that down.
mircea_popescu: According to a TechCrunch article, Zuckerberg's vision for was as follows: "The idea, he said, is to develop a group of basic internet services that would be free of charge to use – 'a 911 for the internet.' These could be a social networking service like Facebook, a messaging service, maybe search and other things like weather. Providing a bundle of these free of charge to users will work like a gateway
mircea_popescu: drug of sorts – users who may be able to afford data services and phones these days just don’t see the point of why they would pay for those data services. This would give them some context for why they are important, and that will lead them to paying for more services like this – or so the hope goes."
mircea_popescu: this has got to be the most fucktarded business model i ever read.
mircea_popescu: so what, the reason i don't; buy an android tho i could afford to buy the engineer designing it is that... wait for it... it never occured to me to get... internet weather ?
mircea_popescu: god have mercy.
justusranvier: It's a perfectly fine business model.
mircea_popescu: apparently there's lots we agree on :D
justusranvier: The spooks want Total Information Awareness. Zuckerberg is paid to get as many people as possible to opt in to surveillance.
asciilifeform: 'the '90s called, they want their aol retardation back'
justusranvier: That's his actual business
punkman: it would be a perfectly fine business model if they'd make some money from their crappy ads
justusranvier: As long as he keeps getting more people to voluntarily give him their data, he keeps getting paid
mircea_popescu: justusranvier but that's your theory. i am a businessman, i read what's written.
mircea_popescu: what's written is still dumb.

mike_c: mircea_popescu: sweet! new ATH
mircea_popescu: mike_c lol ya.
justusranvier: mircea_popescu: As you said, the business model on it's face is retarded. There's no way it could legitimately generate a profit.
mircea_popescu: pretty much
justusranvier: Facebook et al have been like that from the beginning
mircea_popescu: now this is true... i guess facebook just used the capital judiciously.
mircea_popescu: "if you gave us all this money for nothing, now here's 3x as much nothing"
justusranvier: So if it's not possible for them to legitmately generate profits, and they continue to as business, then at some point the most plausible explaination is their profit somes from some other source
mircea_popescu: btw, anyone read zuck's 10 page whitepaper on future of internets last year ?
mircea_popescu: justusranvier not necessarily. pirate didn't have "some other source"
mircea_popescu: manias are manias.
justusranvier: So Booz Allen Hamilton has one of their subsidaries start buying up analytics from advertising firms. Those firms become Facebook's customers.

mircea_popescu: yeah. right. this totally works.
justusranvier: As long as you've got a buyer hidden somewhere with (effectively) infinately-deep pockets, then they can just put out RFQs and let it appear as if the "free market" has spontaneously formed an industry.

Great question, too bad it's irrelevant. You've taken the bait and put all your energy into accepting the form of the argument.

mircea_popescu: can senator trying to curb anonymity there's going to be a Scandinavian cyberpirate who will come up with a workaround, and only one of them knows how to code. Besides, there's no power in abolishing anonymity, the power is in giving everyone the pretense of anonymity while secretly retaining the PGP keys to the kingdom.

mircea_popescu: Why would the The Economist's rich and powerful demo want to be ruled? Because they aren't powerful, only rich, all that time getting rich did not translate to any power, only the trappings of power. So they've postulated a fantasy power structure/NBA owners that explains why they can't enjoy their lives as they think they should-- to absolve themselves of the guilt they feel for having money/intellect/opportunities an

mircea_popescu: ok, quite splendid. the us is chock full of supposedly rich people who are about as powerless as a random south american whore
mircea_popescu: the notion that you can somehow be rich without being powerful is perhaps the lulziest part of the bezzle system.
thestringpuller: damn transaction scripts are hard to grasp at first
asciilifeform: the notion that you can somehow be rich without being powerful << actually the u.s. system is quite like the classical soviet world of 'special access' groceries, gov.-issued dachas, official limousines

asciilifeform: for some reason, it's mostly female names/portraits linking to it these days. maybe mircea_popescu can shed light on why.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform males got selected for decisive action, females for an ability to withstand brainhacking.
mircea_popescu: (the better ones get hacked by better guys thus make offspring that suvives better)
mircea_popescu: that thing doesn't look appealing to decisive action, but it does look insidiously like brain hacking.

mircea_popescu: notrly. they don't run any risk if they can help it. and besides, he was young once, he ran the risk of no tenure.

extra: good Q
decimation: if so, how many regulators in how many states have they met with? how many lawyers retained?
decimation: because if the answer is 0, they are just dicking around
bloctoc: if the answer is more than 0 they are double plus dicking around
decimation: bloctoc: you might be right, but I suspect the "floor price" of buying into the entire us regulatory system is somewhere in the 10's of millions of dollars, perhaps low hundreds
decimation: it's interesting that this kind of wealth exists today in bitcoin yet no one is willing to spend it on bureaucracy
mircea_popescu: decimation nah, it's not that bad
decimation: mircea what portion of the youth in argentina speak english well enough to read trilema?
mircea_popescu: bout half ?
mircea_popescu: doesn't really matter anyway, a kid that's not bilingual is not literate anyway
decimation: there's much truth to that
mircea_popescu: letters used to come with latin in a package for this reason
decimation: mircea I'm just amazed that there is clearly an opportunity to make a profitable exchange on US soil, yet it appears no one is trying
decimation: at least, not without making any noise about it
mircea_popescu: it[s not that clearly profitable.
decimation: well, there's the issue of the usg taking 96% of your assets at a point of their choosing
mircea_popescu: you're grossly overestimating what it'd cost, it's maybe over 1mn but pretty sure under 10.
decimation: you would have to engage lawyers in 50 states and DC for sure
decimation: or start small and build up
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, do the math. if 100 mn us citizens spend 10 bux to buy from you over a year, out of the 0.2% you charge them you've made... 2mn
mircea_popescu: well done, almost paid with your legalese bill. let's hope all advertising was free
decimation: surely the bezzleers on wall street want a place to play
mircea_popescu: but it won't be free, because there's better way to extract value from the us consumer than taking 2 cents out of his 10 bux
mircea_popescu: yah, and they'll use your exchange
mircea_popescu: because why ?
decimation: heh good point
mircea_popescu: the us "market" is underserved for a reason. you can't get good wine, either, nor good cheese

mircea_popescu: the practicalities of a healthy sex life in argentina : as everywhere in south america, abortions are illegal here.

decimation: what, nuclear fission?
mircea_popescu: portable nuclear reacors
decimation: well, like any engineering project it depends on the design
mircea_popescu: So what went wrong? For one thing, the villages that Sachs picked experienced all kinds of problems – from drought to political unrest. For another, the MVP took an idealistic “Field of Dreams” approach. MVP leaders encouraged farmers to switch to a series of new crops that were in demand in richer countries, and experts on the ground did a good job of helping farmers to produce good crop yields by using fertilis
mircea_popescu: er, irrigation, and better seeds.
mircea_popescu: But the MVP didn’t simultaneously invest in developing markets for these crops. According to Munk, “Pineapple couldn’t be exported after all, because the cost of transport was far too high. There was no market for ginger, apparently. And, despite some early interest from buyers in Japan, no one wanted banana flour.” The farmers grew the crops, but the buyers didn’t come.
mircea_popescu: ahjahahaha o god.
mircea_popescu: i wonder how long until these schmucks can earnestly admit "we like going to poor villages in africa because it is enjoyable to peruse in detail the troglodytism of lesser people"
mircea_popescu: all this disavowing pretense of "helping them" and "world better place" bs.
asciilifeform: incidentally, this is the only kind of 'charity' that exists in u.s. - and that their 'export product' is similar, should surprise no one.
mircea_popescu: Of course, Sachs knows that it’s critical to understand market dynamics; he’s one of the world’s smartest economists. But in the villages Munk profiled, Sachs seems to be wearing blinders.
mircea_popescu: Warren Buffett likes to say, “The rearview mirror is always clearer than the windshield.” Through that rearview mirror, we can see that the project never had an economic model that could sustain successes once the MVP dollars ran out.
mircea_popescu: All of the interventions involved – health, agriculture, infrastructure, education, and business seed money – make sense if carried out carefully, over time. But I am surprised by how little Sachs dug into country budgets, and that he didn’t work to convince governments to commit to additional taxation
mircea_popescu: dude wants more taxes. that's the way!
mircea_popescu: and nobody could have predicted that nobody wants crap in the middle of nowhere.
mircea_popescu: this sort of prose should be a penal offense.
decimation: "Another reason Sachs offers for the benefits of diversity is the rather common one that the more contact we have with other ethnic groups, the more we develop trust, forgetting his own previous observation that trust declines in diverse societies, but calling attention instead to some research about the amicable ways in which individuals from different ethnic groups, jet set businessmen and academics, interact with different ethnic
decimation: individuals inside hotels, restaurants, and conferences. "
mircea_popescu: yeah dude, some guy in a five star hotel is so very likely to butcher some other guy in a five star hotel.
mircea_popescu: they have all these points of conflict all over the environment, such as who fucked the blonde escort last
mircea_popescu: and left the flap up
decimation: right but they can sit and chat amicably for a few hours
decimation: so therefore, open the third world's floodgates
mircea_popescu: the benefit of diversity is quite plainly that anytihng that can be butchered should be butchered.
mircea_popescu: "But that’s not his style. He rolls up his sleeves. He puts his theories into action. He drives himself as hard as anyone I know." gates now a "hard work" apologist ?
mircea_popescu: "dude failed but that's ok, he worked hard". wtf just how rotten is that mental space.
decimation: there's no other conclusion than: white people in the west "want" to be invaded, crushed, and forgotten
decimation: in the same way that ascii's hunter finds that the deer walk up to him and lay down
decimation: mircea: re: "pretend-alodial" from your blog: the wikipedia is quite helpful on explaining the current situation:
assbot: Fee simple - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
decimation: "In English law, a fee simple (or fee simple absolute) is an estate in land, a form of freehold ownership. It is the way that real estate is owned in common law countries, and is the highest ownership interest possible that can be had in real property. Allodial title is reserved to governments under a civil law structure"
mircea_popescu: why's that so helpful ?
decimation: it makes the situation plain as day: there is no allodial title outside the government
decimation: plenty of people in the west think that they 'own' their land
decimation: in Hawaii, there are six layers of bureaucracy from the state down to the county level, each of which is empowered to tell you what you can do with "your" land

The one thing one shouldn't do is assume the present system will persist until you're ready to retire, and invest your retirement savings entirely on the assumption nothing will change."
decimation: I'm surprised he hasn't got on the bitcoin bandwagon, he seems to be a likely suspect
mircea_popescu: maybe he doesn't want to advertise it, or maybe he ran off with who knows what braindamage on the topic
