asciilifeform: there are already freislers at work, crafting 'legal framework' for it.
asciilifeform: afaik, the most audacious claim to date is that the machine can tell if the victim has seen a particular object previously.
asciilifeform: folks familiar with usg 'scientocracy' will laugh, but the fact is, the mind-reading box does not necessarily have to... work. to be put in use.
asciilifeform: intimidation of chumps, as in 'lie detector', will take care of two thirds of the 'patients'
asciilifeform: while the remainder can be parallel-constructed, accidented, etc. into their place.

asciilifeform: not actually being pursued for this
ben_vulpes: as 'dna evidence' is atm
asciilifeform: the 'voodoo intimidation value' of the old-fashioned kind is, afaik, thought to suffice
punkman: people still believe in the old model
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes has it, it will be another 'dna evidence'
ben_vulpes: the whole legal/scientocratic edifice is shaking apart as the science part more trivially debunkable.
punkman: but I think new version will need to include "quantum" and stuff
ben_vulpes: grows more*
asciilifeform: or rather, speaking more generally, yet another kind of fingerprint.
asciilifeform: punkman: it already includes quantum voodoo!
asciilifeform: see 'SQUID' etc
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: fingerprints were 'debunked' in the 1900s

asciilifeform: because - for the actual, rather than stated purpose - they work great.

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: lulzily, usg agrees!
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: which is why more and more of its actual muscle is extrajudicial
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, today i went into a shop and saw a type of chumpatronic contrivance for which i do not know the name:
asciilifeform: there was a row of apple portables, and some had high-res lcd (sold as 'retina' trade name) while others had standard lcd. but the latter do not resemble the machines i have previously used having such; instead, they were atrocious, with what looked like triangular pixels, dithering visible to the naked eye;
asciilifeform: like an old vhs camera viewfinder
asciilifeform: my first thought was that these are not intended to actually sell
asciilifeform: but instead to prod people to the costlier 'high res' variant
asciilifeform: my other thought was that it is even possible that both variants used physically-identical components and the cheaper one was somehow crippled in software.

mircea_popescu: the concept of unaffordable housing chiefly exists on this earth to keep women pliable and young derps out of the pool.

mircea_popescu: mod6 why is this a bootstrapping problem anyway ?
mircea_popescu: to run v in the first place one's supposed to provide a populated pubkeys dir.
mod6: One can do this for sure. The idea was, if the user just has the scrpit, and nothing else, they could sync all the latest wots/seals/vpatches from a mirror.

mircea_popescu: but these are two diff things, the v sync (of code) and the pubkey part.
mod6: no, it sync's stuff from the mirror via wget, currently
mod6: the pubkeys, the seals and the vpatches
mircea_popescu: see, the idea being that pubkey gotta be a special category.
mod6: it is not required to do that, one can just populate the stuff by hand, ofc.
mircea_popescu: then you no longer have the bootstrapping problem you were disucssing earlier.

mod6: asciilifeform: <+mod6> Ok while I work on this for a while, I'll pull that bundle down. Should have one up sometime in the next few days to a week.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform like what other ways ? you're not willing to spend 12 hours a day beating them
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: why not minefields ?
asciilifeform: and i hear auto-turrets have come a long way!
asciilifeform: as seen in korean dmz.
asciilifeform: and south africa.
asciilifeform: i hear that not-breeding-them-in-the-first-place also worked great
phf: biggest disappointment of visiting northrop grumman one time-- no auto-turrets. i thought surely there if nowhere else.
danielpbarron: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=11-10-2015#1296471 << i have the only altar and the only sacrifice-giving skill item; whoever would agree to be my apprentice would use my altar with my ingredients and give me all the loot, and in return they would get the experience
assbot: Logged on 11-10-2015 21:20:00; mircea_popescu: how'd that work danielpbarron ?
asciilifeform: phf: try aircraft carrier
mircea_popescu: you seem to be of the same persuasion of the good folk making "bitpurse.io".
mircea_popescu: how the fuck is the landmine going to identify them!
mircea_popescu: "oh, forger the hard problems involved while i focus on painting the fence! that'll do it!"
mircea_popescu: no, srsly ?
asciilifeform: ask the israelis
mircea_popescu: if it were as simple as orc = black we'd have long exterminated the blacks and be living in paradise
mircea_popescu: shit dun work.
mircea_popescu: <phf> asciilifeform: why did you go with a separate keys folder instead of relying on existing pubring? << more calmly explained, because pgp is marked for death. we're working deliberately towards replacing it.

asciilifeform: the way this works best is that the guard knows everyone who belongs inside the wire, by face.
asciilifeform: anyone else has to sit in a cage and get 'buzzed in.'
phf: i gather as much from elsewhere in the logs
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and HOW does he know them.
mircea_popescu: by face or by post devirgination remains irrespective.
asciilifeform: ideally, guard is one of the residents, who take turns on checkpoint duty.
asciilifeform: and know one another.
asciilifeform: in the old-fashioned, meatspace, dunbar sense.
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> 'dlp' (mems array) with laser illumination. less than 1k usd when it was new. << un minimo respeto por el imbeciliator! argentina no es un pais pobre porque es rico en recursos umanos.
mircea_popescu: more like scoursos umanos, but enfin.
asciilifeform: ahahahaha
mircea_popescu: your working projector intended for a home was 1k new, their "cinema multiplexo!11" projector was prolly 2k and they bought it on time, so paid 5k or w/e.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 80800 @ 0.0004748 = 38.3638 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: anyway. the problem is not identification in the sense of this x = the x we know to be ok.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: can't help but wonder if the blurry '90s thing was installed... deliberately! if it did not smudge, no one would know it is digital!!1!!11
mircea_popescu: the problem is that given a facebook friendlist of 50k imbecile 20something females who, if asked "like to read" and then if pressed are apparently unaware that books EVEN HAVE AUTHORS
mircea_popescu: which do you let in.
asciilifeform: ah, problem of 'who gets to move in' ?
mircea_popescu: well doh. how do you identify the nigger.
asciilifeform: well, first you check the applicant's forehead for brands.
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> (where we get 'ninjas wear black') << weren't ninjas wearing black because convention for "not visible" ?
asciilifeform: if you don't see 'T' (thief), 'M' (mayhem)....
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: correct
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> i hear that not-breeding-them-in-the-first-place also worked great <<< how the fuck are you gonna manage this wonder. so you select a woman. and her spawn will... regress to the mean. of course. and she'll love it anwyay. of course. and now what ?
asciilifeform: ... no brands? he gets to have a chat with the residents
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: reintroducing starvation would go a long way.
mircea_popescu: so then you should be a fan of the rent bezzle.\
mircea_popescu: it's pretty much the only thing working to starve reddit into submission.
asciilifeform: not seeing this submission
mircea_popescu: <asciilifeform> in the old-fashioned, meatspace, dunbar sense. << the OTHER problem with this is that there isn't eno9ugh space in the dunbar-based graph to cram everything you need.
mircea_popescu: even something as tiny as a porn studio will not be served by the model.
asciilifeform: how's that
mircea_popescu: let's go through the list.
mircea_popescu: modest studio = 6 camera people + 9 or so trainees ; about two dozen fluffers + administrative assistants ; about 2-300 models ; cleanning and maintenance crew ; execs and other suits.
mircea_popescu: you're over 300 people. they won't know each other.\
mircea_popescu: and this is not even fucking paramount or nlc ; and those are jack shit, basically they produce footage, big whoop. try making an atomic dirigible next.
asciilifeform: except in this hypothetical, we are not designing a soviet rocket factory, and pondering how to keep out spies from washington.
asciilifeform: we're designing a residential complex, and trying to keep out destructive lumpens
mircea_popescu: while designing a rocket factory that also produces jam.
mircea_popescu: this arbitrary division is naught but naivite in a wrapper.
asciilifeform: i doubt that any usaschwitz inmate would have a serious problem distinguishing 'want this as neighbour' from 'do not want' in five minutes of conversation.
mircea_popescu: i guarantee you no ustard could discern anything from his own shit.
asciilifeform: in practice, the 'do not want' is identifiable with minimal effort. because these are not spies from washington, but human refuse
mircea_popescu: people like the orcs themselves are eversoslighty better at it\
mircea_popescu: but at the massive cost of not doing anything worth the mention ever.
mircea_popescu: a la cecens. they can distinguish non-worthy dogfucker, yes.
mircea_popescu: problem is, they distinguish him by how he doesn't fuck goats like they all doi.
asciilifeform: where i live, at present, any experimentation in selectors ~other than rent bezzle~ is specifically forbidden by usg.
mircea_popescu: this may be true,
asciilifeform: but if it were not, different approaches could be tried
mircea_popescu: but it does not automatically make the emplaced system unoptimal.
asciilifeform: say, 'i want to live only with folks who graduated with science degrees before 2010'
mircea_popescu: for that matter, also wheree you live, anything but oxygen respiration is forbidden by biology.
mircea_popescu: if it wasn't, alternatives could be tried.
mircea_popescu: sure, they could be tried. what of the trying.
asciilifeform: there is this thing called 'freedom of association'. used to be a thing in usa.
asciilifeform: today - specifically banned. if you want to sell or rent a house, it has to be done like-so.
asciilifeform: or jail.
mircea_popescu: you're still free to associate. buy a building, let your own slavegirls populate it frere of charge.
asciilifeform: buy rocket, build dome on mars, yes.
mircea_popescu: freedom was never for the poor.
mircea_popescu: not ever.
asciilifeform: which is where we get to the sacramental:

assbot: Logged on 19-08-2015 00:18:24; asciilifeform: cabbie: 'this ford is a piece of shit. stalled again.' mircea_popescu: 'i have a solution!' cabbie: 'oh???111' mircea_popescu: 'here, have this broomstick.' cabbie: 'how do i drive customers on that, feed my family' mircea_popescu: 'you misunderstand, my good man. you stuff it in your arse.' cabbie: 'and... how does this feed by family?' mircea_popescu: 'no, you sit there with it in.'
mircea_popescu: either that or make some money.
asciilifeform: i have a sequel!
mircea_popescu: and in yet another branch off this tree, im not even sure your ideas of selection would be a net positive.
mircea_popescu: only ppl with science degrees after 2010 ? my degree is fucking philosophy.
mircea_popescu: and anthropology.
mircea_popescu: phf doesn't even look like he finished college.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform: 'my mandatory plastic toilet has chipped.' mircea_popescu: 'whaddayamean' asciilifeform: 'well, broke.' mircea_popescu: 'make some money! buy iridium toilet, like normal person!'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: notice that i did not say 'exterminate people who didn't graduate in maths.' i said 'what if people had freedom of association.' the example give was, well, an example.
asciilifeform: not a formula for robotic extermination army.
mircea_popescu: the example given was well, a case of dwimnwis.
asciilifeform: if one demands a 'final solution' - yes. but what i asked for was the freedom to try solutions other than bezzle.
mircea_popescu: yeah. except the absence of this freedom is no proof that the freedom would benefit, and your hypotheses as presented are unpersuasive.
mircea_popescu: and since we're picking on the structure of reality, why not the freedom to be a different height. maybe if you could experiment with height you'd have more pleasant urinatory experiences or who knows what.
asciilifeform: l0l
mircea_popescu: speaking of which, you know the joke with the short guy in the public restroom ?
asciilifeform: hm?
mircea_popescu: a tall guy that has visible parkinson and a short guy happen in the same restroom
mircea_popescu: what the fuck is wrong with you ? asks shorty
mircea_popescu: well... you see... parkinson...
mircea_popescu: at which the shorty starts breakdancing too\
mircea_popescu: "what happened ? also parkinson ?"
mircea_popescu: "no, i just don't like having piss in my ears"
asciilifeform: l0lz
mircea_popescu: so yeah, if only we could experiment with height i could fuck throats standing.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile if you're curious and bored, read the coupla excellent mongraphs re life in london cca 1800.
asciilifeform: yes, i get it, iridium toilet on atomic dirigible is very spiffy
mircea_popescu: that was a place where very much such freedom to experiment.
asciilifeform: for those who have it.
asciilifeform: you mean the post-enclosures london?
asciilifeform: flooded with angry orcs?
mircea_popescu: all the coats were gray from all the home heating expwerimentation, and 40% of the population lived off processing garbage.\
asciilifeform: mega-example
mircea_popescu: or for that matter, see warsaw jews.
asciilifeform: same idea
mircea_popescu: maybe part of why they got fucking exterminated like cows was that they LIVED LIKE FUCKING COWS ?????
mircea_popescu: who knows ; who could have predicted ; etc.
asciilifeform: cows would take offense
mircea_popescu: i dunnop that there existed anything more offensive than the jewish ghetto of eastern europe cca 1920.
mircea_popescu: and that was a rather direct result of "freedom to experiment".

asciilifeform: the way i see it, in present-day usa you have the choice of buying plastic toilet with rusty nails instead of a seat, or iridium toilet.
asciilifeform: all i'd like is the option of ordinary porcelain.
asciilifeform: like 50yrs ago.
asciilifeform: because iridium is pricey and i'd like to use the money to buy turkeys.
asciilifeform: i've spoken to enough old folks in usa, dug through enough archives, old advertisements, to know what people earned and what they paid for a roof over their head.
asciilifeform: in various times.
mircea_popescu: tis not so simple yo.
mircea_popescu: the people in those various times were supported by earnest empire.
mircea_popescu: loo kwhat the chinese coolie earned in singapore in the same times.
