BingoBoingo: Mining, a bond? Twas before I really started taking notes.
mircea_popescu: yeah something like that.
mircea_popescu: "The Bitcoin community is not just overwhelmingly larger but of overwhelmingly better quality as well. Bitcoin is surrounded by real entrepreneurs working hard to create new and useful services for Bitcoin. Altcoins are surrounded by loud-mouthed pretenders with irrational hopes of duplicating Nakamoto's success."
mircea_popescu: krawisz stomping heads
fluffypony: although, Bitcoin "entrepreneurs" aren't much better
mircea_popescu: well obviously everything will be surrounded by a bunch of tims.
BingoBoingo: Back then it didn't much matter what people called their own things as those labels were rarely accurate
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo quite.
mircea_popescu: more a function of what had been on tv that week / what the person picked up from google finance.
mircea_popescu: hey have developed a series of fallacies capable of fooling newcomers into joining them, but they are all disingenuous.
mircea_popescu: Thus, the altcoin communities are not just embarrassing, but dangerous. Desperately wishing to be taken seriously despite having nothing worthwhile to offer, they will say absolutely anything to convince other people to join them. They persist in saying things easily refuted by economic logic, common sense, or verifiable facts.
mircea_popescu: well dangerous, but this is a good thing.

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you got most of it flawlessly, but the intro is a bitch
mircea_popescu: Nu exista in principiu o diferenta de tratament ideal < tratament ideal is, "ideal treatment", in the sense of normative, prescriptive treatment.
mircea_popescu: "nu exista in principiu" means there doesnt exist (nu exista) for absolute reasons (in principiu, roughly, following from principle, for reasons derived from prime principles)
mircea_popescu: so, "the ideal treatment of one does not differ from the other for reasons that are derived from prime principles".
mircea_popescu: the point being that while you're welcome to disagree in practice, your doing so is arbitrariety not reason.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform: exponentially difficult << 'learn' for translating a diplomat - perhaps hard; reading articles in your armchair slowly - not so hard << the diplomat in question doth protest.

kakobrekla: !up Kamuela
Kamuela: thank you kakobrekla
kakobrekla: what is the project about?
Kamuela: briefly, a bitcoin work market a la odesk. development team ready
kakobrekla: and you need capital for ?
Kamuela: kakobrekla: MVP development
kakobrekla: who are you/your team?
Kamuela: I'm in talks with differential to do it in the meteor framework
assbot: Differential | We Build Big Ideas
Kamuela: lol
kakobrekla: so you wanna be the ceo and pay someone to code something up?
kakobrekla: but to pay you need get capital.
kakobrekla: am i missing something?
Kamuela: i could attempt to develop it myself, but my skills there are really crap. i have designs and nearing full use cases for the MVP
Kamuela: yes, you've got it
thestringpuller: so you come to us #b-a this the day of our daughter's wedding
Kamuela: i'd like to keep it within bitcoin's community and equity based because everything else is a crock of sh** honestly. it's not fair to give people merchandise and coupons for something that's going to generate revenue
kakobrekla: ok so who are you and what makes you think you are theoretically capable of running such a thing?
Kamuela: and for it to be truly competitive to something like odesk, it will need to be flexible enough to establish itself in an overseas jurisdiction only when completely necessary. meaning dealing in USD first and setting up a bank account makes it legally complex from the getgo
Kamuela: someone who shares the interests of many for a Bitcoin work market, a go-to for both supplemental and potentially off-grid lifestyles
Kamuela: why am i the one? because i'm committed to keeping it useful for people as far as it can be taken. i'm not looking to grow and sell out. my interests are aligned with keeping it one of the most decentralized ways to act in the BTC economy
kakobrekla: how is it decentralized?
Kamuela: initially it isn't, it's a single-server application. but ultimately i will seek to develop many methods of access via alternate and distributed networks
Kamuela: the technology isn't decentralized first, but the idea that anyone can offer services and receive Bitcoin as compensation is the most decentralized of all exchanges, imo
Kamuela: you're always subject to a bank at a cash exchange
Kamuela: you also need to solve the problem of "what is Bitcoin useful for"
assbot: trixisowned comments on With the mtgox fiasco being long forgotten, Mark Karpeles launches a new business, "" selling VPS, VoIP & dedicated servers: bitcoin is NOT accepted.

Kamuela: speculating? that's it? one of the biggest uses of currency is in transaction and the building of capital. we have some stock markets and that's great and will continue to grow along with 2.0 uses, but as a currency it needs to facilitate real trade
Kamuela: the superniche initial target market are just Bitcoin supporters and enthusiasts, but ultimately it can compete with something like odesk by undercutting its fees especially as in many places getting into Bitcoin is getting ridiculously easy, meaning obtaining it
Kamuela: getting out is a bit harder, but something the initial contractors will shoulder voluntarily

Kamuela: certainly as a competitor to existing odesk businesses, the project will shape itself around the interests of its customers. but what initially or conceptually is wrong with the odesk style?
punkman: everything
Kamuela: for example, it seems so far from my interviews that something people really like is the guaranteed payment... something that this project would NOT be offering for at least a while. it certainly would not be part of the MVP

Kamuela: with inferior financial technology
ThickAsThieves: "Cops found this wanted Nebraska man after he posted his Ice Bucket Challenge on Facebook."
Kamuela: the first couple thousand users on a Bitcoin-powered odesk are going to be BTC enthusiasts and folks looking to play around, meaning a release valve for pent-up demand for use of coins, and of course a dedicated following of people who want to try to make supplemental or full-time income doing btc freelance work
Kamuela: but after that there's a real competitive advantage to 10% and a couple days turn around time and <10% and 1 hour turnaround
Kamuela: especially when you factor in the fact that a bunch of the initial contractors are going to underprice in an attempt to gain customers, there's a real value proposition to a competing network
Kamuela: and odesk "just accepting Bitcoin" is a bigger deal with any real thought
Kamuela: meaning there's a whole lot of inertia to fight to make that happen
Kamuela: and how are they going to address a cheaper and lower-hassle competitor even with Bitcoin? will they openly say jobs paid in bitcoin are discounted? i don't think they could do that
Kamuela: ThickAsThieves: I don't know about the actual total market, but just odesk takes in $80mm

TheNewDeal: nubbins` can you pm me a digital version/
nubbins`: no sneak peeks :)
TheNewDeal: I do like your work from what I've seen, but I haven't the slightest clue about this one
nubbins`: all i got is testimonials:
nubbins`: [00:13:41] <mircea_popescu> ok this rocks.
TheNewDeal: he got a sneak peak?
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal his latest work was quite lovely.
nubbins`: he bought 50, he gets a sneak peek ;)
mircea_popescu: X-Rob want the same address used each week ?
TheNewDeal: haha I guess that may be fair
TheNewDeal: if I give you a zip code can you figure out shipping costs?
X-Rob: mircea_popescu: yes, please, I was going to remind you about that. Need to figure out the discount though.
TomServo: TheNewDeal: Mind if I PM?
mircea_popescu: just keep em running.
X-Rob: 1xrobauEmhLwVnTmLbs6M92n1xGFAFbgq is the address
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla: its an exercise to alert reader. << ahh
nubbins`: TheNewDeal: totally. probably somewhere in the $20-ish range as a guess
TheNewDeal: you can pm me all you want bb ;)
TheNewDeal: so 20+35 pre order price?
mircea_popescu: Kamuela: briefly, a bitcoin work market a la odesk. development team ready << well, the thing is this : we;ve been wanting something like this built for about a year. finding someone to do it is hard, however, and moreover i won't support a would be ceo on op's work. i'd rather deal with the coder guy directly.
nubbins`: TheNewDeal yeah. buy with a friend to save on shipping ;D
mircea_popescu: half the value of b-a is taking the entire layer of would-be ceos out of business completely, as there's nothing really they can usefully contribute.
TheNewDeal: nubbins what would it be for 2+shipping?
nubbins`: no extra cost, it's just paper, so 70+20
TheNewDeal: no frameage?
nubbins` shakes head
nubbins`: framing it locally would be the sensible option
nubbins`: otherwise you're paying to ship a piece of glass across the continent :D
TheNewDeal: gotcha
TheNewDeal: whens the downpayment due?
nubbins`: you can even get em plaque-mounted, i've seen people do that
nubbins`: this coming friday
TheNewDeal: i say i say
TheNewDeal: how long does that stuff take to ship ya think?
mircea_popescu: << interesting bet calculator thingee mike added

TheNewDeal: I actually like that
TheNewDeal: did he do it because of my horrible betting in game 26?
Kamuela: mircea_popescu: you seriously just said that?
mircea_popescu: Kamuela yes.
Kamuela: if you're working with them directly, doesn't that make you CEO?
Kamuela: have you contributed nothing useful?
Kamuela: all you just said was "hey same concept, but let me start it"
mircea_popescu: only in a very distant sort of manner. not in the traditional sense the term is used.
TheNewDeal: I thought he was the funding
mircea_popescu: Kamuela no, it wasn't "let me start it". it was "let the coder start it, and run it"
Kamuela: mircea_popescu: the coder doesn't want to do that. the coder wants to run a development shop
mircea_popescu: if i wanted to "start it" i'd have started it in 2012. but i don't, because i can't nor should i do everything.
Kamuela: are you anti-capitalist? seems like you're running counter to specialization and trade
mircea_popescu: well then fuck him, he can go die in a fire.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11100 @ 0.0006438 = 7.1462 BTC [-] {2}
mircea_popescu: need a better coder, which simply means ~actual~ one.
Kamuela: you're asking for a CEO
Kamuela: you just want it to be the build crew as well
mircea_popescu: im running counter to some very particular, bad implementations of capitalism.
mircea_popescu: this being a recurring discussion these days it seems.
Kamuela: are you the type who thinks that
Kamuela: Apple would have been a better company without steve jobs
Kamuela: that he contributed nothing
mircea_popescu: but anyway : specialisation is not a good thing just for the mere fact that it's specialisation.
mircea_popescu: jobs was not the ceo in the sense you use the term.
Kamuela: CEO's contribute vision, investor and customer relations, executive decisions, accountability, etc. could all of these things be "in-sourced," sure, and they are in a lot of cases
punkman: "Specialization is for insects"
Kamuela: punkman: Heinlein
mircea_popescu: Kamuela you know you're just calling it "vision" to avoid saying "ceo is the guy who wants money for nothing and thinks this wil wash"
mircea_popescu: there's no value in "ideas" and rebranding them as "vision" won't wash.
mircea_popescu: money comes through work.
Kamuela: who says i'm asking for money?
Kamuela: i'm asking for capital
mircea_popescu: asking is not the problem.
Kamuela: i don't make money on a crowdfund, this is completely development and marketing runway
mircea_popescu: what i'm trying to impart to you is that this "take capital from idiots of type A and labour from idiots of type B" that silicon valley was built upon is dead in the water.
TheNewDeal: but MP, don't you remember the cyperpunks thought up PGP before it was implemented?!?!
mircea_popescu: i'll support the idiots of type b directly tyvm
TheNewDeal: they had the power to think, and not do
mircea_popescu: and that means the only way you'll be able to give them a worse deal is for as long as this elephant in the room stays secret.
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal right right.
nubbins`: TheNewDeal: about a week-ish to ship
Kamuela: the thing is, if it were easy for builders and maintainers to be owners and operators, it'd be the rule instead of the exception
Kamuela: there isn't some mass scheme of exploitation going on
Kamuela: it's a rational choice between employment and entrepreneurship
mircea_popescu: it only isn't the rule because up until now there didn't exist this chan, and this ideology.
mircea_popescu: it will be the rule within your lifetime toh.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 22500 @ 0.00064572 = 14.5287 BTC [+]
Kamuela: so what will happen in my lifetime, you're saying, is that the profit motive will go away, all marginal cost will go to marginal benefit, and unicorns will come back from extinction
mircea_popescu: Kamuela no. i say that within your lifetime, you'll starve with this model of trying to ceo that i perceive you're trying to impl;ement
Kamuela: even if we are all managed by artificial intelligence, that artificial intelligence is still the capitalist
mircea_popescu: much like you'd have starved cca 1920 trying to be a buggy manufacturer.
Kamuela: something for nothing is what drives the world. it's what causes both its prosperity and its problems
mircea_popescu: Kamuela approach it from another angle, perhaps it's more digestible that way. suppose the worker's work was no good. you know this because the code doesn't compile. suppose the capital's no good. you know this because the check bounces.
mircea_popescu: now suppose your "vision" is no good.
Kamuela: i understand trying to eliminate that, but i think that will be done through solving information asymmetry rather than through eliminating... ideas?
mircea_popescu: you can'rt ever know this, can you ? that means you're not part of the pie, not adding value.
mircea_popescu: not eliminating ideas, but the brand of "ideas", or whatever it reforms as. this concept that one's personally important for no reason whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: "i thought of it first!!11" or w/e.
Kamuela: so... because i want to organize a bunch of people who don't know each other, because i interview potential customers, because i will continue to direct operations of both the MVP and later pivots, I am contributing "nothing?"
mircea_popescu: none of this is to say you personally are a bad guy or anything.
Kamuela: You're getting arbitrary and it's almost disrespectful
Kamuela: you act like i'm just trying to take something to a patent office
mircea_popescu: !up Kamuela
Kamuela: i acknowledge i didn't think of it first
Kamuela: and i'm not trying to cash in on that
mircea_popescu: don't get all bristly lol. anyway : there's tools to organize all that, use 'em.
Kamuela: well let's put it this way
Kamuela: i'm a manager
mircea_popescu: irl you mean ?
jborkl: good afternoon
Kamuela: in this project, and that's not some kind of a euphemism
Kamuela: i have to manage the programming team every day
mircea_popescu: you ever been a manager irl ?
mircea_popescu: ello jborkl
Kamuela: for brief positions of over 1700 employees actually yes
mircea_popescu: okay. so you know what an office manger is. sorta like a glorified receptionist, hires the cleanning crew, takes a weekly salary.
Kamuela: you're looking at me and saying that my skill in knowing how to accomplish EVERYTHING involved but simply not DOING everything involved is meaningless
mircea_popescu: pretty much, yeah.
mircea_popescu: i also know how the plumber should fix the pipes.
Kamuela: so do it yourself
mircea_popescu: i guess i could be the plumber's manager for as long as i stfu and don't go much in the way.
Kamuela: or you live a meaningless life
Kamuela: according to your own logic
mircea_popescu: as far as plumbing is concerned, i'm a negligible entity.
jurov: Kamuela, 90% of freelancer is web scraping and php plodding stuff. You can't combine this model with bitcoin economy, it needs something fundamentally else at this stage.
Kamuela: so if a task requires more than yourself, are you actually saying that hiring someone is being some kind of lazy ass
jborkl: yeah, or you are just me
mircea_popescu: Kamuela no, but you're welcome to that strawman if you wish.
Kamuela: mircea_popescu: how is that a strawman?
Kamuela: i have preplanned the MVP
Kamuela: i have design work done
Kamuela: and yet having the build done by a team that's better and uses time more effectively than i can
mircea_popescu: you have design done pre-product ?
Kamuela: is suddenly wrong in one person's eyes
mircea_popescu: this is like having painted the wall of the unbuilt house innit ?
Kamuela: no, this is like ensuring a house doesn't fall down by having blueprints drawn up before you put the pieces together
Kamuela: sorry, a 0-value activity
Kamuela: lol
mircea_popescu: o you don't mean what is normally meant by design online, ie, drawing up mockups of webpages. do you ?
Kamuela: you're just a little bit of a marxist... that's cool... i mean, i don't prefer it, but you are welcome to your own opinion
mircea_popescu: you designed, as in, software architecture. db models and whatnot. tho you don't code ?
X-Rob: mircea_popescu: I think it's fair, looking at the outage, if you just make it 0.2 rather than 0.22 for this week.
Kamuela: who told you i didn't code?
mircea_popescu: X-Rob im not going to bother with a coupla cents, just make sure the thing stays online.
mircea_popescu: Kamuela im just sorta following along. do you ?
Kamuela: well another way I'm contributing, I suppose, is moving resources to their highest valued use
mircea_popescu: how would you know ?
Kamuela: and mine may not be foregoing seeking a project's funding by getting into a pseudo-intellectual marxist debate
mircea_popescu: myeah. point in case i guess.
mircea_popescu: Chief Executive Officer at Coin SEO
mircea_popescu: Chief Idealist at
mircea_popescu: Administrative Clerk at US Census Bureau
mircea_popescu: o you have GOT to be kidding me.
Kamuela: look, doing for the sake of doing. just expressing. building. being steve wozniak. it's beautiful and i completely agree with you
mircea_popescu: nah, this convo is over, srsly.
jurov: what's pseudointellectual in asking you to show the world the MVP before asking anyone anything?
Kamuela: you accuse me of strawman, and what did you just do?
Kamuela: bring up a character assessment based on your perception
Kamuela: at least hold yourself to the same standard
mircea_popescu: Past : simpleminded psychotic. Currently, cult leader.
Kamuela: i apologize for not knowing all the terms, but you are committing the fallacy known as "name-calling"
Kamuela: may be ad hominem, not sure
Kamuela: though i suppose no one agreed this was a debate. you're just talking
Kamuela: contributing, i suppose. although not by your own measure. but by mine for sure
jborkl: mircea- some interesting stats top 10 visits us,ca,hk,nl,au,by,gb,fr,de,ru,cn
Kamuela: you're making me realize, for example, that the road to finish this is an uphill one
BingoBoingo: <Kamuela> may be ad hominem, not sure << Every label sounds like an ad hominem unless you have read and digested the historical context.
jborkl: all the ones from france are probably pankaake

jborkl: Windows73.3 % Linux14.7 % Macintosh9.5 %

mircea_popescu: they're fucking quotes. the point here being that i comfortably define myself in the terms of the would-be insults various folk tried to tack on over the years. the years of me being and their coming and going. whereas you're stuck aspirationally trying to add labels to yourself. it's a fundamental difference at work.
mircea_popescu: jborkl i think everyone gets more traffic from yandex than bing.
