FCC Favors Net Neutrality

Shishak Of course they did (255 comments)

Regulations and regulatory oversight is what keeps the FCC in business.

FBI Seized 144,000 Bitcoins ($28.5 Million) From Silk Road Bust

Shishak Re:Well (162 comments)

Assets seized during a drug bust go to the arresting agency. In this case the FBI gets the asset (bitcoin) which they can do anything they want with. Assuming they have the private key and/or they have brute forced the private key password. They can convert the coins to dollars. Dumping 144k coins into the market will decimate the market price so they will have to do it slowly. They will probably use the money to buy more Bearcats for domestic oppression.

Reporting To Executives

Shishak % of utilisation & growth availability (301 comments)

As an executive I want to see how much additional growth I can add to a system before I need to expend additional capital.

A report saying XYZ resource is at X% and can handle Y% more growth before we need to spend $Z to expand capacity is immensely valuable.
