That's a beautifully shot and edited video.

I'm inclined to agree with the general idea, and although I think the tree scientist's view may be a little exaggerated he certainly speaks a lot of truth.

I was pleasantly surprised that the film didn't stray too far into "conspiracy land". Although some people believe that the current system is run by some sort of shadowy NWO-style group, that conspires to actively control human behaviour, my personal view is a little different:

Thanks!  Smiley

You should take his words with a grain of salt of course, as you should with everything. Stay skeptical, critical thinking is a rare trait that you should cherish.

In our global village we do not think critically enough anymore, we are bombarded with trends information that slowly as captivated us into submission. Media is used to manipulate mass society into passivity. Creating more and more information, and less and less meaning. I think there is an underlying problem with how we perceive what is important for us. The worst thing is that we were warned about our self inflicting dystopia by many writers and intellectuals for many decades. We have ended up in a strange hybrid of their visions of the future and a shadow group or elite is not an unthinkable think to have in a society that is passive and submits to a centralised machine that it feeds.

Like is said in my clip I think we it's time for a new language, I believe in Bitcoin being that language hence me posting it on this forum.  

The language I used for my analysis accompanying this video is the language of Intervention design.

It is the theory and praxis of designing for the new world without drifting away from the old world too far. Intervention design is design for a rapidly changing society. Normalí design leads to solutions based on old models and way of thinking, thus solving symptoms instead of the real problem.

Intervention design tries to intervene between both worlds by first investigating how the problem would be solved using 'normalí design, then investigating how the problem would be solved using new ideas and insights by stripping the problem to the core.

I have found that more people are waking up to the reality that the world is an echo chamber by design and we are held captive by corporate enslavement and we enslave ourselves.

The world is only divided by matter of interpretation, I think living in our time is a fascinating experience. I want to make others understand that technology can liberate us from scarcity.

I have a presentation I have to prepare for tomorrow, thank you again everyones reading this for your words, thoughts and impressions.  Smiley If you could help me share my message I would be forever grateful.

Kind regards,

Hello community, our drugged up world has many repetitive historical cycles that never end. Unstable times that are happing today are a reflection of the nebula of deceit that is our modern day Soma. I made this as part of my graduation project. The main goal of my project was to capture 21st century human society by analysing it and then translating this information into visual storytelling. Using this video to help accelerate the global discussion on humanities future, I really want to share it with you. I noticed, people have been desensitises by smashing amounts of information. By using storytelling I tried to explain how the world works and explain the concept of the cage we were born into, and expose the bars that keep us in our imaginary box. A speech taken from the intriguing movie "My dinner with Andre" combined with footage that I shot last September in Croatia. The changes that have taken place in the last 50 years alone resulted in a world where there is more and more information, and less and less meaning. We are indoctrinated, we are bombarded with information to pull us into submission. By pursing truth as a goal in my video, I tried to expose the fabric of our collective enslavement. Modern day culture is akin to a factory producing standardised cultural goods that are used to manipulate mass society into passivity. The culture industry undermines our individual choice and it fosters a powerful distraction which ultimately destroys any meaningful appreciation of reality.

So the question arises, how do we get out of this mess? How bad does it need to get before we wake up?

Have you decided if you're willing to lower the price? I'm in at 1BTC if so.

What country are you in if I may ask so I can check what the cost are for shipping high priority TNT shipping so I can evaluate your offer (if it's financially viable for me or not).  And last but not least will you agree with 50% upfront payment so I can cover the shipping and packaging costs, 50% when delivered?

I had to share this interview I just read on twitter!  Smiley

How did you initially discover the issue with the reused R values on

I have a script that I run regularly that scans for repeated R values. There has been another program producing them since September, so I took a habit of watching that daily. The problem is not new for me. I followed it since April 2013. The program I use is my own one, that I wrote in 2013.

What program was this, and how many bitcoins did you sweep out of those addresses?

The one in Summer 2013 was the Android bug. The buggy RNG [Random Number Generator]. I didnít sweep much, a few mBTC. But others were doing it as well. That it was Android I only noticed when I searched for one of the broken addresses and found a post at bitcointalk. This was when I created the [bitcointalk] account. I told him that his program was buggy and asked him which [bitcoin client] he used.

Which wallet would you recommend for the average user of Bitcoin that combines security with ease of use?

For small amounts of money one can probably use everything that one finds convenient. I would suggest using some tools that use deterministic wallets, so that one doesnít have to worry so much about backups. Of course, if one uses a program on the desktop, one should set a wallet password and keep it clean from malware. For larger amounts, that one doesnít need to access regularly a paper wallet should be used, preferably with the key generated on an offline computer. I use my trezor for this, though.

What is your opinion on the security of Blockchain.infoís webwallet following these incidents?

The bug shows that there is a problem. The patch was changing security critical code and it should have been reviewed more thoroughly. It was just a missing variable initialisation. Careful inspection of the code should have revealed it. JavaScript is also not really meant to program security critical applications. For example, it has no type checking.

How did you verify that the addresses you sweeped were generated on

If an address was generated on at that day it was produced by the random number generator, so it was in my list of random numbers. But I could also attack addresses from which money was spent on that day. In that case the signature contains one random number from my list. I actually didnít check that I accidentally broke an address that wasnít related to this problem. There is still some other tool producing the duplicated R values and Iím still wondering which.

But if it happened they should see the note that they should contact Blockchain support. So it is okay Smiley Iím thinking I found most of the money, but I know that 105.9 BTC were stolen already in the evening (probably by some lucky guy who accidentally created the same address).

Can you explain a bit more about this other program producing duplicated R values?

We are still wondering about it. It has a different pattern. It uses a random R value, but it uses it in one transaction for all inputs. amaclin analyzed some of the transactions and said that they spent to a BTC-e address, but we donít know much more. Since the program is usually not reusing keys often, there have been not so many broken keys and I think only very few sweeped accounts. I think I still have 0.9 BTC from one account. So if we ever find out [which program has the issue] I will offer it back.

Best wishes,

20  Other / Beginners & Help / I think I'm the first designer in Maastricht (Holland) accepting bitcoin! on: December 02, 2013, 01:57:49 AM
I think Bitcoin can give me an opportunity to get funds for my dream to print my art for exposure at art galleries. What I really love to do is create something that makes people think about today. We are not really at a pleasant part in human history. I try to make a difference by trying to get people to think to how we our treating our planet and ourselves. Check it out, what do you think? Do you share my dream? I love to hear your opinion!

I'm also new on this forum and I want to introduce myself.

I'm Bram, I am 31 years young. I currently am in my 3rd year at the Academy of Media, Design & Technology, Communication and Multimedia Design in The Netherlands.

I love graphic design!

The more I do it, the more I love it. I can express my feelings, thoughts and one day I hope to tell a lot of stories trough my animations and short films and other work. I hope that I will help people for the better one way or another. You know that feeling that you found your 'life goal', I think I found mine.

I've been trough shiatloads, and I have done shaitloads in my life.

And I am not done! (=

I'm off to bed since it almost three in the morning here. Let me know what you think of my work! <3

And I truly believe bitcoin is the future <3
