Rand Paul Suggests Backing Bitcoin With Stocks

wasabu Re:Uhhhhm, yeah . . . (404 comments)

Perhaps he's smarter than he's putting forth here. By generating support, even it if is for a flawed model, it will put wind behind cryptocurrency sails in general - stripping power from central bankers.

Virgin Galactic Now Taking Bitcoin For Suborbital Flights

wasabu Whether it crashes is irrelevant (70 comments)

It's the idea that matters and it has already been unleashed. Central banking is the bane of everyone's existence whether they realise it or not. Cryptocurrencies will turn central banking literally upside down and with that, a redistribution of economic power. The Chinese can't believe their fortune. The enemy has embraced the technology that will dissolve the very ground he stands on!

wasabu Re:An outbreak of sanity? (1367 comments)

Average global temperatures are up 4c in the last century, 2c in the last decade, and it is more severe near the poles. Coastal water levels have risen by a few inches in the last decade.

OK lets go from the top. You took the floor so I kindly ask that you give references for the stated data. Lets be civil geeks.

Don't Worry About Global Warming, Say 16 Scientists in the WSJ

wasabu Re:An outbreak of sanity? (1367 comments)

I searched for Cryosphere Today, and what came up was a page talking about the ever decreasing amount of sea ice. http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/

Where is this 'talking about' you talk about. Did you look a the data?

Average temperatures have fallen marginally in the last decade, so you're misinformed there (see the actual satellite data at Cryosphere Today, not CNN) .Average temperatures were quite a bit warmer and changed more dramatically in the middle ages. Greenland was not named sarcastically. Britain once produced wine. Find the connection between politics, power tax and lies. In short: get your brain out of your arse :]

Ask Amir Taaki About Bitcoin

wasabu Money ignorance (768 comments)

BitCoin is a medium of exchange like any other money before it, from feathers to paper backed by military force (US dollar). The fact that fiat currencies can be printed willy-nilly without the discipline of anything to back it with (ie gold / silver) is the direct cause of all the evil in the world today. The Cabal in charge of the printing press manipulates the entire physical paradigm of existence and eventually destroys it. "Permit me to issue and control the money of the nation and I care not who makes its laws. — Mayer Amsched Rothchild", 1800's. I hear idiots talking about Ponzi schemes, bubbles etc, and don't have a clue about the fundamentals of money. it's a MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE. Like any other medium of exchange, criminals can build ponzi schemes ontop, markets can get excited about it and create bubbles, like anything else. Money is a store of value, period. The difference here is that the value of it, vis-a-vis how much stuff you can but with a unit of it, is determined by far more parties than has ever been possible. This is the proper market democratisation of trust in the unit. The US dollar currently is run by a tiny private Cabal inbreds. For the love of Christ, learn about and understand money in history first, the role of Gold and Silver for 5000 years, the attempts by Government to eradicate Gold & Silver so they can print money and fund wars etc etc, then comment.

Transparency Required For $37 Billion Aussie Broadband Deal

wasabu Australia Inc (62 comments)

The Australian Government is now fully engaged in the Fascist Business Model like the USA, hence the contempt for people policies. The Commonwealth of Australia is a US Securities Exchange listed company, prospectus n all. Look it up.

Egypt Goes Dark As Last ISP Pulls Plug

wasabu Re:dialup and wifi cantennas (323 comments)

The Illuminists risk sparking a communications revolution post-internet by taking draconian measures like this.

Massively Distributed WIFI is where this is going, and we need to accelerate thinking in this direction. It cannot be intended for mainstay use, but as a mitigation to tyranny.

Another option is blue-tooth (100M Class A) distributed database core (eg CouchDB) with lightweight web server and subscription / security layer. People would be able to 'swarm' to update their subscriptions, and identify where physically the latest updates are, and become human routers.

Are 10-11 Hour Programming Days Feasible?

Honeywell To Sell Miami-Dade Police a Surveillance Drone

wasabu Re:Surveillance (253 comments)

Ofcourse there's an ulterior motive. Anyone brought up 1984 yet? Oh wait, The shitty specs of this drone are deliberate. It's a baby step in the direction though. TSA groping breasts was crazy to everyone 20 years ago, now it's crazy to *many*.

Web 3.0 - The Distributed Internet

wasabu wasabu writes  |  more than 3 years ago

wasabu (1502975) writes "The amazing drama of Wikileaks has highlighted the vulnerabilities of the internet — a system of communication that has given us a taste of true freedom. Is it time now that we build a torrent-based browser with distributed http services, and thwart the movement to shut the people up?"
