jurov: moms project theri desires into daughters?
mircea_popescu: you don't understand how thw world works. "mom" would like a place to drop off the kid while she does "other things". (no, i don't mean fucking. if only. i mean going around shitty clothes shops in the mall and feeling each individual item buyt not buying anything, then hitting the food court)
mircea_popescu: so they offer this service, "drop off your kids for an afternoon and get five double cheeseburger mchappy meals"
gernika: mircea_popescu for example, Alice builds up a good reputation in the WoT. Then in some large transaction Alice absconds with Bob's BTC and fails to deliver the goods. If the same transaction were instead executed in such a way that if either party fails to deliver, both Alice and Bob would lose an amount of btc equal to the value of the item being purchased, would that then prevent Alice from sacrificing her WoT rating to
gernika: cheat someone in a large transaction?
mircea_popescu: gernika the case you're proposing is already out of scope, because the wot is intended to be used with middle transactions. so if alice trades 100 btc a month for two years, trusting alice with 200 in one go is okay. trusting her with 5k is absurd,
mircea_popescu: and in fact reduces to a not-using-wot situation.
chetty: gernika, what does wot have to do with that? everyday common trust question
mircea_popescu: basically you're saying "if people weren't using the wot how could their actions not impact the wot'. well... they already don't.
mircea_popescu: just to make sure we're on the same page here, have you read http://trilema.com/2014/what-the-wot-is-for-how-it-works-and-how-to-use-it/ ?

mircea_popescu: oh oh
gernika: mircea_popescu Ah ok. Got it. Didn't think about how people would evaluate the WoT differently for different magnitudes of transactions. It actually does help with the long con problem. So one could do 50 1 btw transactions, then steal the last btc, but that's about all. Yes I've read what-the-wot...
mircea_popescu: you mean lolis as in freshman, 19yo womenz mats_cd03 ?!
gernika: s/btw/btc
mats_cd03: no i mean 12 year olds, girls
mircea_popescu: gernika well, one could put the time in to build himself and steal some, but the idea is that he wouldn't really manage to steal more than what not stealing is worth on a discouinted basis for him.
mats_cd03: altho there were plenty of freshmen walking around
mircea_popescu: which is why people who pretend to trade but aren't in the wot, and ESPECIALLY people who pretend to raise capital/issue equity but have no experience whatsoever are suspect.
mircea_popescu: they HAVE TO BE frauds, pure and simple, there's no logical alternative.
mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 da fuck are 12yos doing on campus anyway
mats_cd03: things overheard last night: 'we should find some MIT guys, they're, like, going to rule the world. but, really!'

mircea_popescu: ah ah
mircea_popescu: isn't it fucking cold in east fucking anglia, nov 1st ?
gernika: mircea_popescu So in order for someone to get rated for a more valuable interaction than they have ever participated in before, someone else always needs to take a risk, correct?
mircea_popescu: gernika exaclty, and in wot-terms he makes a trust donation to the wot and to his partner.
mats_cd03: it was ~40F, plenty warm enough. chicks around here walk around in shirts and a belt in january, ~15F, on friday nights
mircea_popescu: gernika the situation being exactly equivalent to when they first joined the wot, had no ratings.
mats_cd03: getting laid is more important than warmth.
mircea_popescu: because in practical terms, they DO have no ratings, for that level.
mircea_popescu: mats_cd03 in fairness, i dun think it's sluttiness, i think its simple use. you should see the chicks here, it rained two days ago, it was like... i dunno, 18 instead of 23 celsisus ? COATS! shivering! everyone destroyed omg it's so cold.
gernika: mircea_popescu Would a nash equilibrium based exchange in THAT case be of use? Or would it nullify the donation to the wot?
mircea_popescu: gernika it seems to me the wot is already generating it's own equilibrium, not clear to me what you mean by "nash equilibrium based exchange"
mircea_popescu: we're back to give me an example.

assbot: delivery
mircea_popescu: i seriously think that comic pretty much illustrates the mental process of the libertard us female. she has a little girl that grows up to be a man
mircea_popescu: that takes it in the ass.
gernika: mircea_popescu So in a case where two parties have no information about each other (which is essentially the same as when one party is in the WoT and one isn't, or when one party wants to do a trade they're not rated for), a nash equilibrium allows a way to incentivize both parties to complete the transaction faithfully by forcing both parties to risk the value of the item being traded contingent on the trade being completed
gernika: successfully. It would work like this: Alice wants to sell her gold for btc. She puts 1 oz of gold worth of btc in Chad's basket. Bob puts 2 oz. of gold worth of btc in Chad's basket. Alice gives Bob her gold. Bob refuses to give Alice her 1 oz of gold worth of btc. Chad threatens to throw his basket over the cliff. Bob reluctantly give alice 1 oz of gold worth of btc. Chad gives everyone back their stuff from the
gernika: basket.
mircea_popescu: you're describing an escrow.
gernika: Well, an escrow that doesn't make any decision in the event of a dispute except to say both parties are out their escrow.
mircea_popescu: if that's what you mean best call it escrow, because the bitcoin crowd (esp here) is highly technical and the nash reference sends people mentally exploring large swaths of math theory.
mircea_popescu: right. that's how escrow actually works. "come back when you agree"
mircea_popescu: anyway! this is how services such as localbitcoins work.
gernika: Also, this escrow can be done without a third party
mircea_popescu: the problem are all the edge cases. did you catch that discussion in the logs, as to what localbitcoins is vulnerable to ?
gernika: via multisig transactions
mircea_popescu: no, it can not, because you can't multisig dollars, or bars of gold.
gernika: But you don't need to. The seller puts the value of their item in btc in escrow. The buyer puts double the value of the item in btc in escrow.
mircea_popescu: o.O
gernika: The seller then ships the item.
mircea_popescu: are you aware that trade as-is is credit-supported so people don't actually need to put up even the actual value of the items ?
mircea_popescu: that's why international trade happens on the basis of locs and so forth.
mircea_popescu: you're going the other wa
gernika: I have seen discussion of that on Trilema, I believe. Doesn't that arrangement depend on a trusted third party? The creditor?
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: gernika let me illustrate the problem of trust and the limits of the universe to you with a risque comic.
mircea_popescu: here it is : http://oglaf.com/homecoming/
assbot: homecoming
mircea_popescu: now, in this comic, trudy cooper makes the excellent point that resources are scarce, whereas trust cheap.
mircea_popescu: so, in any practical situaiton, a solution that relies on trust will outperform a solution that relies on expenditure.
gernika: Hmm yes. Trust *is* cheap.
mircea_popescu: now, fucking could consist of the girl getting another cock and the guy getting another cunt to sit and watch them while they do it.
mircea_popescu: this wasteful system has actually been implemented in practice, it's what victorian england was all about

gernika: So what is the term or concept for forced trust in third parties?
mircea_popescu: gernika rape works.
gernika: lol
mircea_popescu: technically forced thrust, but still.
gernika: It's the sort of trust that you think is trust at first, then realize you have no other options later.
bounce: how is that "trust"? o_O?
mircea_popescu: then that's anti-rape. rape seems to be this thing where you think you have no options at first, then later you realise that you did so you go and denounce the fucker.
gernika: bounce it's not trust, just not sure what it is. Anti-rape. Will consider that.
gernika: A world where you appear to have a bunch of choices, but in fact you have only one and it sucks.
mircea_popescu: o, that's just how the world works!!1
mircea_popescu: now you understand how the world works. unlike putin!
mircea_popescu: gernika on a more serious note, this is a problem familiar from game design. you can either have choice or stability, not both. systems that are to any degree stable only achieve this stability by denying choice correspondingly.
bounce: what was that game again, "diplomacy"
mircea_popescu: all games are that game again. matrimony too.
bounce: well, no
mircea_popescu: a challenge appears ?
bounce: you're trying your hand at english where mark twain tried at german, by proposing to replace all words with just "slag" and "zug".
mircea_popescu: choice of words is a poor simile for choice of action.
mircea_popescu: mostly because (blessfully) representation is toothless upon reality.
bounce: even so not all games are one and the same
mircea_popescu: with respect to choice and stability ? yeah they are.

assbot: Logged on 16-09-2014 17:28:54; kakobrekla: how do you measure success
kakobrekla: found my answer, sorta: >Our staffing costs alone run $45,000 a month. Our hosting costs for September were $8,500.
mircea_popescu: that's how you measure public idiocy,
mircea_popescu: by looking at what scammers claim as part of their scamtext, you can guess what the general sea of idiots imagines is going on.
kakobrekla: clearly
kakobrekla: i can easily make bitbet spend 45k a month
kakobrekla: :)
kakobrekla: or 8.5k to be fair.
kakobrekla: 45 would be challenging.
mircea_popescu: you're too young to pay for women.

xiando: $102000/year for hosting, uhm exactly what do they claim to be hosting there.. facebook? google? yahoo?
xiando: I guess it makes sense if you don't have a bunch of servers and websites yourself
mircea_popescu: it makes exactly no sense, unless you're from reddit.
xiando: perhaps if you're hosting reddit (even then it seems like a lot)
kakobrekla: you're too young to pay for women. < oh oh i see, young enough to emulate em
mircea_popescu: lmao

ninjashogun: <ninjashogun> hi - could I ask you to remove my full name from the logs. I have been open about what it is and it appears once or twice in the bitcoin-assets logs. I realize that this ecosystem is very different and that people here don't believe in traditional startups, but I have investors doing due dilligence on me, and it is uncomfortable to come up in google results.
ninjashogun: <ninjashogun> I realize that you also are careful about your online footprint so you will appreciate this. I think I didn't realize that it's a publicly-indexed log at the time.
mircea_popescu: lmao.
mircea_popescu: what is the schmuck's name anyway ?
ninjashogun: I can PM you if you want. Let's not repeat this.
punkman: I don't think I've seen your name
ninjashogun: Look, we're all adults here and know how an IRC conversation looks to a random person googling an individual.
mircea_popescu: get lost. we really don't give a shit either way.
mircea_popescu: !down ninjashogun

cazalla: mats_cd03, prolly not
mircea_popescu: given that i have like 2lbs of chocolate right here, which i just bought today, it's a wonder we're not the fattest people online.
mircea_popescu: what with all this chocolate conneisseurship
mats_cd03: well now i'm just disappointed

mircea_popescu: these argentinian dudes are so fucktarded it's hard to put into words. so there's a few streets in the financial district where literally 100s of derps hawk "cambio, cambio!" trying to get some paper benjies for their locally-printed toilet paper. all day long.
mircea_popescu: saturday night tho ? ZERO! i don't mean, most of the fat ones with good business didn't bother, leav ing just a few of the sketchier, hungrier fellows. no, i mean exactly zero. as if saturday night is not a time. not part of the world. does not exist.
mircea_popescu: the exact fucking antihussle. i wonder what the fuck dope dealers are doing, because i find it hard to believe argentine junkies all keep a stash.
punkman: is financial district busy saturday night?
mircea_popescu: what difference does it make ?
mircea_popescu: take a tour through the red light district, sometime. the hookers are out whether there's johns or not.
mircea_popescu: because THAT IS THEIR MOTHERFUCKING JOB.
