mircea_popescu: that sciencemag bit is hysterical tho. idiots who buy into the whole "ip is needed for to creativity with!" hook line and sinker are displeased when it turns out "ip only exists for people to arb the process, and make money out of the money intended to support creativity". but it never occurs to them what the problem is. because hey, why should scientists be any better at thinking than random five year old, "dog bit me
mircea_popescu: , dog's bad"
mircea_popescu: it's not like their own unsufferable personalities ever bite them. it's just these damned dogs everywhere all the time!
mircea_popescu: anyway, so the point of the "is random derp X ?" (no) article was so that reuters could run a piece saying "Australian police raided the Sydney home and office on Wednesday of a man named by Wired magazine as the probable creator of bitcoin and holder of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of the cryptocurrency, Reuters witnesses said."
mircea_popescu: which is great, i guess, if you're at that level of stupid, but otherwise would seem kinda damaging.
mircea_popescu: i guess reuters, wired & all correctly judge that there's absolutely no brand value left in their shit and so why worry.
mircea_popescu: in other news, would any of the brighter minds present explain the jwz piece to me ? i have the feeling he thinks he's being clever, but i lack the resources to comprehend the intricate minutia of his idiocy.

mircea_popescu: "here's the things we want you to think : a) that you need us ; b) that you shouldn't look out for yourself".
mircea_popescu: yeah, totally. what you want when doing a start-up is to "raise" a lot of money so you can pay the people who you "rose" it from rent so their real-estate sidelines do really well (in exactly the opposite fashion of what's preached here), while "not optimizing for your size of the pie".
mircea_popescu: sounds like exactly what they told the indians, too.

mircea_popescu: which happens to be exactly what's happening, too. indians "had" land, the nature of which they failed to understand, but it was the funciar good for good reason back then.

mircea_popescu: oh right, and i forgot, "c) there's a shortage of you suckers [and really, alot of money you can give right back to us is "chasing" this deal. totally.]"
mircea_popescu: punkman so it does huh. except it's a weird thing, i've seen this lots in us-born slavegirls. woman could be well above 100 iq, think herself stupid, and indeed exhibit ~30-50 iq in selected fields.
mircea_popescu: so well selected for the convenience&perpetuation of the stupidity she comes from, one can hardly believe it's not deliberately trained.
mircea_popescu: but whatever, fight "patriarchy", not the incredibly unhealthy system that makes you be dumb in the few spots it handles you by so your smarts in the rest of the spectrum can be best sucked dry.
mircea_popescu: average ustard is, i would guess, a 110 to 115 iq college graduate whose 110 to 115 iq is composed of 150+ iq in beating himself up, 25 iq in establishing relationships and so on and so forth.
mircea_popescu: ethical idiocy, where ethical does not mean what esltards think it means, but merely "how to correctly live".
mircea_popescu: this is actually indicative of the very fucking problem : ethics means, how to live. such as for instance, how to drive a fucking airplane i nthe tax office if you live in the us. that's ethics. meanwhile the carefully-debilitated ustards actually think ethics means the exact opposite of what ethics means. to them ethics is "the ways to inconvenience your life".
