Comment Re: Innovation (Score 1) 357

Are there unique innovations anyway, except for the delight of lawyers? Everything is built on something. The need to state uniqueness and innovation is kind of selfish.

Progress is about sharing, so that the flowers can bloom. Everything else is more or less about constraining innovation.

True. But they did accomplish to make everyone believe that Trump won the election so everything is possible I'd say. The hologram projection of the new world is state of the art alien technology. The secretive alien forms behind Hillary were defeated. Earth is a field of battle which we don't know almost anything about.

Something like that, perhaps?

NSA is an effective tool for the American economy and policy making. I don't see any reason why a businessman like Trump would reign it.

I suppose it'll be rather left to its own devices, also because of its apparent complexity to the administration. If something the intelligence efforts will be strengthened, as the administration composition so far suggests.

Trump's tactic of pre-emptively revealing pretty much everything has left the security apparatus somewhat toothless, too.

More likely the price was boosted because of the speculation that it might. Bitcoin is rather unhinged from the fundamentals. The central mass of Bitcoin holders/traders typically just expect the price to skyrocket at any occasion.

There's nothing wrong with that, of course.. it's just funny how there are so many Reasons why Bitcoin behaves like it does, of which some are based fantastical fractal analysis etc.

The others then make their profits by playing with that sentiment or reasoning.

It's still rather unfinished and low scale platform, after all. Really long term holders (rationing the investments) would probably also do fine, if the political and technological risks don't materialize...

Well, yeah. I enjoy looking out. It's mesmerising. I've tried to check out movies and such, but of all the provided entertainment in the end I choose to see the map or forward / below cam or such.

I think what's happening outside is more interesting. It's a unique experience of the world we are living in, however dull it might feel.
