mitch_callahan: ha, more depths of trilema for me to read 10x
mitch_callahan: is this Dmitry Orlov ?
pete_dushenski: the one and only
mitch_callahan: k, I'll watch some vids on this guy.
mitch_callahan: man, I was at an event tonight, and for once I met someone who brought up bitcoin before me.
mitch_callahan: was crazy refreshing.
pete_dushenski: what'd your friend think of our little tech ?
mitch_callahan: loves it. basically said in Canada we rely on oil, and real estate. oil is in the slumps, so Torontonians are now propping up poorer cities, like Hamilton, to keep the bubble going.
mitch_callahan: but loves the btc, for again, obvious reasons, it's outside of our largest industries control, not inflatable, etc, etc.
mitch_callahan: i just feel there is this huge generational gap. it doesn't matter what tech i talk about, but "boomers" or whatever will never comprehend most of it.
pete_dushenski: the generational gap lies more in youth's fascination with the new and the aged man's acceptance of the status quo as what's (mostly) worked every day in his life thus far
pete_dushenski: as well as "boomers" very strong desire to maintain, if not grow, the little patch of earth they've thus far claimed for themselves
mitch_callahan: makes sense. i see "Tech savvy" older guys, even in the sense that these guys can program, eventually they reach a treshold, and dont move much from there.
pete_dushenski: youth, to the extent that they have no patch of anything to call their own, are inclined to jump aboard any train promising any sort of future
pete_dushenski: be it 'apps' or 'the frontier' or bitcoin.
pete_dushenski: then there's the educational gap aka. learning curve. unattached youths have more time (if not money) to invest in sorting out what bitcoin's about
pete_dushenski: once you've a family and a mid-level management position and a beer league hockey team and a church group, that's it. you're a gonner.
pete_dushenski: the two hours a week you can wedge into understanding bitcoin means that it'll be a decade before you sort out which was is up in the whole shebang

mitch_callahan: yea, i can blame it on generation, but i meet people in businesses who could make obvious improvements utilizing a basic website, but they dont. i could blame generational gaps, but it's just lack of knowledge or willingness to learn.
pete_dushenski: from their perspective, not caring about 'digital things' is the most efficient use of their time
mitch_callahan: how does that make any sense ?
pete_dushenski: they've never been raped by it, so what's to fear ?
pete_dushenski: their time is better spent worrying about things that CAN rape them
pete_dushenski: like not having customers
mitch_callahan: lol I feel like they're being raped right now and they don't even see it
pete_dushenski: or having employees flake off
pete_dushenski: rape you can't feel and don't even know about is entirely useless from an educative perspective
pete_dushenski: it's more theft than rape in that case
mitch_callahan: man, but I think: what about all the lost customers from not changing?
mitch_callahan: I know people arent fans of uber here, but its like taxi companies not thinking "hey, could we improve our experience?"
pete_dushenski: well 1. uber isn't about the experience, it's about the medallions, and 2. who says there are lost customers from not changing your website from web 2.0 to web 1.0 ?
mitch_callahan: its about people who havent gotten to web 1.0
mitch_callahan: what do you mean about the medallions?
ben_vulpes: mitch_callahan: the monopolies
pete_dushenski: let's do one at a time, first: taxi medallions are essentially very expensive and carefully allocated driver's permits for cabbies. this permit can run $50k+++ in larger cities and gives the owner the right to operate a cab in that city. they're seen as an investment by the cabbies because they often appreciate in value, even to the point that they're based down from father-to-son in the way a feudal lord would'
pete_dushenski: ve given his land to his kid.
mitch_callahan: ahh yes, okay I know what you mean
pete_dushenski: cabbies are therefore highly protective of these medallions, but are obviously been badly disrupted by uber et al., which allow anyone with any car to drive anyone anywhere anytime.
pete_dushenski: as to the non-web 1.0-ites, what are these, farmers market stall operators ? since we're working with your experience, let's make it concrete, ya ?
pete_dushenski: hell, in my experience, even farmers market stall operators have websites !
mitch_callahan: ha, yes some do for sure.
mitch_callahan: but, you'd be surprised man. imagine companies in which the majority of their leads come from online, and they're not interested in making a mobile experience. consequently, their search engine ranking drops and their leads get cut in half.
mitch_callahan: or the basics of getting a website so I can find you for "XYZ near me"
mitch_callahan: about the medallions, i mean, for me, I dont care if you're a medallion driver, keep them on the road, just give me a better way to interface with them.
mitch_callahan: id much rather an app which takes me 3 seconds, then calling, waiting, and explaining my location, then standing around hoping I catch them.
mitch_callahan: funny enough tho, I had a guy "pick me up" and drive off, with me left on the side walk, a la ascii.
mitch_callahan: but i was quickly refunded.

pete_dushenski: do cab companies in t.o. not have decent apps ?
mitch_callahan: we used to have Halo, but they left.
mitch_callahan: the major company, Beck, made an app
mitch_callahan: but all it was was a big button which called their operator, and it was business as usual
pete_dushenski is pretty sure edm. has this, but no smarthph0ne so doesn't give two shits.
pete_dushenski: weird man.
mitch_callahan: just stupid
mitch_callahan: i mean uber made the model, just copy it
pete_dushenski: lazy fucking cab companies like that deserve to be shot in the stomach.
mitch_callahan: i swear it's like they hired their "smart nephew" to make the app and he's clueless
pete_dushenski: hakim. in bangalore. aha.
mitch_callahan: lol exactly, and the design was made in paint.
pete_dushenski: time to move back to civilisation then eh ?
mitch_callahan: where would that be ?
pete_dushenski: leave the fucktarded "real estate is our most thriving industry" torontonians for dead already
pete_dushenski: i dunno, alberta's not bad.
mitch_callahan: alberta is okay man
pete_dushenski: hell, saskatoon's a pretty town, decent little economy
mitch_callahan: i mean you mention it yourself.. culture barely has a breath
mitch_callahan: edmonton is friendly, i like it there
mitch_callahan: but toronto has a handful of things, i get along with most people and i can find anything I need
mitch_callahan: mostly a numbers game I guess
mitch_callahan: if I'm staying in Canada, it's going to be here
ben_vulpes: pete_dushenski: lol are you serious medallions are inherited up there?
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: dude, medallions are inherited in nyc
pete_dushenski: land of the $1 mn + medallion
ben_vulpes: private equity owns most of those
ben_vulpes: cabbies sold 'em all for a shot at college
pete_dushenski: << post-uber nyc medallions are $600-700k. most here sold by 'independents'
assbot: NYC Taxi Medallions for sale List ... ( )
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: smart play by the cabbies who sold in 2011 - 2013
mitch_callahan: when I was in NYC last, I was told one guy took a massive bank loan and purchased a lot of those.. and leased them out.
mitch_callahan: after uber, the value was cut in half, and he didn't want to pay his loan..
mitch_callahan: not sure his status now, but he was some "medallion kingpin"
pete_dushenski: probably "panhandling kingpin" now :P
mitch_callahan: ha close to it, using his last strings to lobby against uber
mitch_callahan: shit i was using lyft when i was there, they had a $5 promo anywhere in the lower half of manhattan.. cant beat that.
ben_vulpes is going off years-old hearsay anyways
mitch_callahan: i just envision the future where uber is the mainstream, and it's gonna suck so much balls, we're waiting for the next thing.
mitch_callahan: their surge pricing is such a pain in the ass
mitch_callahan: thats when i take a normal taxi and i'm stoked
ben_vulpes: mitch_callahan: you're not excited to own a fraction of a self-driving fleet?

mitch_callahan: i dont know enough about the technology to comment tbh
mitch_callahan: from what I've seen from the tesla cars, it looks amazing
pete_dushenski: lol it's a pipe-dream, the self-driving car, like colonising mars
mitch_callahan: the current tech is pretty good.
pete_dushenski: pretty good isn't good enough !
ben_vulpes: what is good enough?
ben_vulpes: turns out, actuaries make that call.
pete_dushenski: a human driver.

ben_vulpes: sure if you say so pete_dushenski
ben_vulpes: faster than real time trajectory analysis sure aint a thing
pete_dushenski: how are all those sensors going to work when your car's dirty, when it's snowing, when it's hailing, etc.
ben_vulpes: how did humans ever drive with foggy windows indeed
ben_vulpes: and while drinking even
ben_vulpes: they'll hurt someone i tell you
pete_dushenski: how well's your fancy little futuremobile going to drive when one sensor gets knocked out, along with the warning signal that it's knocked out, ever so conveniently, and it turns right into oncoming traffic ?
ben_vulpes: just one? you don't want to propose a cascading failure?
pete_dushenski: dude, the technology needed to make a self-driving car is not only incredibly complex, but super fragile
mitch_callahan: like a human who's a little tired and had too many drinks?
pete_dushenski: tired and drunk drivers are a thing, obviously, but isn't it incredible how few mistakes they make, even so ?
mitch_callahan: they make few mistakes ?
pete_dushenski: ok, show me the daily piles of bodies at the morgue from all the sleepyheads who didn't pull over for a coffee
mitch_callahan: lol. likewise for tesla's driving themselves.
mitch_callahan: the big thing that scares me with the tesla is those over air updates.. who knows what's coming through.
ben_vulpes: perhaps if the world of 3 cars per american were to continue, there'd be an economic point to getting normies off the road. entire us interstate system is a ridiculous boondoggle that's going away, along with the mass-market car, and drivers who can't handle an ambush.
pete_dushenski: mitch_callahan: nonsense. you can't compare a data set with quadrillions of driven miles to data sets with a million or two driven miles

mod6: asciilifeform ascii_field: I've built 'rotor+TEST2' while logging output via `script`. I was able to capture all of the required deps from the log. The only thing that was missing from the list was the hash (easily remidied) for the linux-kernel. But it interestingly wasn't output like the others.
mod6: I think this is a good start for a list of whats required for buildroot -- these packages are normally pulled down into 'buildroot-2015.05/dl/'
BingoBoingo: mitch_callahan: What's wrong with "desktop experience" and "mobile experience" happening with the same page served to both users?
mod6: Let me know if I'm missing anything here. Going to see if I can just change the package's .mk file so that it points to somewhere in the foundation's web directory to pull the packages, instead of where ever is specified.
mod6: for instance:
mod6: grep "_SITE" rotor/buildroot-2015.05/package/gmp/
mod6: GMP_SITE = $(BR2_GNU_MIRROR)/gmp
mitch_callahan: BingoBoingo - nothing wrong with same page being served, that's ideal. in this case, I knew the lack of a mobile layout would cause their rankings to go down, which it did.
mod6: would change GMP_SITE = $(BITCOIN_FOUNDATION_MIRROR)/gmp or something...
