mircea_popescu: as a result, all those developers are today bankrupt, but...
ben_vulpes: oh the big towers on the waterfront?
mircea_popescu: they're not actually closed out, because argentina is still very far away from a working market economy. these people'd be humiliated by the market, they're politically and socialy connected, can't have that.
mircea_popescu: so instead of the judge selling them by courthouse auction, they keep having lifelines extended
adlai for a moment was wondering what #b-a had to do with seattle
mircea_popescu: which makes most of the income arrive not from renters, but from the state
mircea_popescu: which makes the people involved more interested in supporting an image than providing a service
mircea_popescu: which makes them completely uninteresting to actual renters.
mircea_popescu: the only thing a foreign porn company "rending in puerto madero" does is send the local whores (perfectly happy to swallow for 200 pesos, otherwise) the message that they should overcharge. which they will.
mircea_popescu: porn is a marginal business everywhere, and so... they'd be better off filming in ohio.

fluffypony: so you had to copy the game AND photocopy the manual
mircea_popescu: never managed, gave up, wrote it off as nonsense.
fluffypony: and then Space Quest 3 or 4, the one where he travels through time, you needed the game manual to complete parts of the game

[Namworld]: If facebook likes are from bot... the bot accounts are pretty impressively well made. Photos of same person over years, often multiple years of Facebook usage, conversations that somewhat make sense when translated, although not sure if it's issues of translation or just gibberish. Just doesn't look like gibberish.
mircea_popescu: [Namworld] o, didha do that fb campaign ?
[Namworld]: For some reason, they just like tons of random pages. If I had to guess, hacked accounts/people not bothering to remove liked pages.
mircea_popescu: or you know, simply idiots.
[Namworld]: I read something about some FB users just liking tons of stuff like they collect likes and using FB in odd ways.
[Namworld]: Yes, well it's started. For some reason, it seems slow to work on getting website clicks. It gets you clicks faster for fanpage like button.
[Namworld]: I'll try raising the bid a bit I guess.
mircea_popescu: not like there's any rush.
mircea_popescu looks
mircea_popescu: 21 clicks here so far. lolz.
[Namworld]: Facebook ads shows 50 clicks. So instant bounce/no wait for loading. How many of those 21 bounced?
[Namworld]: My guess is a lot.
[Namworld]: Yet when it's clicks for fanpage, they result in a fan, and randomly selecting fans gives you a realistic profile.
[Namworld]: So hacked accounts or copied info/posts from account with privacy settings set to public.
adlai: facebook would probably catch onto copied accounts quite fast, they run facial recognition on every photo
[Namworld]: Either way there seems to be rampant networks of click-happy bots ramping up costs. At least on low bids/global audience.
[Namworld]: They do?
adlai: yes
adlai: they use it to suggest tags
[Namworld]: Hmm, I guess there's other smaller social networks, especially in non-english countries. I guess facebook botnets could crawl and use info from profiles elsewhere.
ben_vulpes: all to make money while sleeping
[Namworld]: Because the photos on those suspicious accounts have pictures of same person posted over and over. Yet they don't act like humans. Especially when you start tracking them once on your website.
[Namworld]: Photos must be coming from somewhere. So hacked accounts very plausible I guess.
[Namworld]: Easier than copying from elsewhere. I doubt it's hard to come up with a lot of FB credentials on black market/from a botnet.
mircea_popescu: [Namworld] pretty much all. but it'd show in the log for merely asking for the page, anyway
mircea_popescu: (i just grep for the get request it used see)
mircea_popescu: [Namworld] anyway, let me know when it's finished and i'll do a sumup
[Namworld]: Aye, should have at least 500 clicks once it's done. At least FB side. Apparently most don't even get to have a request sent to the actual website.
[Namworld]: Since ads are not direct link but a FB link that tracks and redirect, I guess bots just click and never request the page they're asked to redirect to.
