15 More of The World’s Most Dangerous People, Selected By You

...
We’ve published our list of the 15 people most responsible for turning this world haywire. But 15 dangerous folks weren’t nearly enough, you told us in your comments, your tweets, and your Facebook mentions. So here’s a second helping of dangerousness, all thanks to you.
...
Satoshi Nakamoto. The pseudonymous creator of the Bitcoin digital cryptocurrency has seemingly disappeared into the shadows, but his invention lives on with potential to disrupt the powers-that-be. What happens when crooks can move money effortlessly online, without ever being traced? We might soon find out.
...


So satoshi didn't make the Wired editor's picks - but a Wiki Weapon project guy, Cody Wilson did:

CoinLab, a Seattle-based tech startup that focuses on the Bitcoin digital currency, has come up with a way for PC users to take advantage of their spare GPU cycles to raise money to buy goats for impoverished families around the world.

Yes, real goats. This is not FarmVille. The software program is grounded in the mechanics of the Bitcoin system — in which units of the digital currency are generated in exchange for adding computational power to the Bitcoin network.

Fascinating to see the damage MtGox is doing themselves by the way they communicate(or rather - fail to) their AML procedures.

Last year, we received a few thousand dollars in bitcoin contributions. So far this year, Internet Archive supporters have donated 186 bitcoins worth U.S. $2,400 at the current exchange rate.

Surprisingly the author still maintains an upbeat tone after this rigmarole... Ah well, we all know there is a fair way to go in terms of convenience/usability.

blockexplorer.com seems to be stuck around block 212404  over 300 blocks behind ?

My bitcoind and bitcoinwatch.com show we're past block 212735

Did I miss an announcement/discussion about this?
I'm surprised not to see any talk about this - as I know at least one android app uses blockexplorer for its data, and I assume other services depend on it.

ALL CHANGE HAS CASH HAD ITS DAY?

...
It’s been revealed that the Bank of England is considering the introduction of new harder wearing and environmentally friendly bank notes. The arrival of plastic money, from as early as 2015, could mark the end of a 300-year tradition of using paper currency in Britain.

Yet as part of a wider technological money revolution the idea of carrying any form of cash could eventually disappear altogether.
...

In the nearer future the wallet, bulging with notes and plastic cards, could become a museum exhibit. In its place we’ll have virtual wallets on our computers and phones, which will allow us to see how much money they have in an instant.

We will no longer spend cash but some form of e-money which can be paid with a wave of a mobile phone over a bar code. There’s already one form of digital currency, called Bitcoin.

So far however no one has solved a big problem. What happens in this future cashless society when we lose our mobiles down the back of the sofa?

You don't have shit julz. Stop attention whoring.

I don't understand the point of your post. You think that fits the pattern with how I post?
394  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: LargeCoin Pricing Announced; Taking Pre-Orders on: December 17, 2012, 11:34:18 PM
Some NDAs treat the existence of the NDA as part of the information covered by the NDA.
Now you're scaring me.

Anyway, I fail to see the logic of this, as the existence of an NDA is not one of the facts whose sharing was conditioned on signing it.

Well, by 'existence of the NDA' in that sentence  - I don't quite mean just the document - but the resultant 'agreement' between parties.  That fits my reading of a recent NDA document I saw, but obviously IANAL.

So, I think it's perfectly fine to acknowledge that LargeCoin was sending out NDA documents for signing, but if you signed it and if it happened to have clauses like the one being discussed, you probably shouldn't disclose anything about what was in it, or that you signed it.

The Deep Web

One of the reasons the site can operate with impunity is because the preferred currency is the Bitcoin, another indispensable service to the anonymous web user of distinction. Not reliant on a bank or government, Bitcoin uses a log across a peer-to-peer system, run by the people who use it.

They are mathematically derived valued function that supposedly can’t be stolen because the user is embedded in the function from which they were derived. To generate them, you download a Bitcoin software client, which generates 36 character addresses or accounts to receive Bitcoin payments. The currency is stored on your computer in a “wallet” and you can send them to the wallets of others. The sender’s computer sends the information to the network, which validates the transaction. Due to the fact that the only information identifying a user is the Bitcoin address, the transaction is almost anonymous (though the transactions are recorded in a public log, so law enforcement could in theory use network analysis techniques to track down individual users).

...


The typical tabloid response to the Deep Web is one of “ban this filth,” but nobody talks about banning paper to stop people printing child pornography. Even if something could be done about the anonymity and the hidden nature of the Deep Web, what would it be for? These are questions we need to think long and hard about, because things aren’t going back to the way they were.

I bought it via the walletbit site.
(well.. sort of... there is some issue still being worked out it seems)

A suggestion/query re the walletbit.com receipts - Is there some reason that my receipt url from yesterday is no longer displaying anything?
When I made the payment yesterday, I didn't have a printer handy so just bookmarked it, expecting to be able to view it today - but now it's blank.
I would think receipts should last a few days or weeks if not indefinitely.

Backed by Pentagon Papers publisher Daniel Ellsberg, Electronic Frontier Foundation co-founder John Perry Barlow and others, the group is channeling tax-deductable donations for Wikileaks and other organizations through PayPal, Mastercard, Visa, and of course, Bitcoin as part of a new effort to "promote and fund aggressive, public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in government."

Some NDAs treat the existence of the NDA as part of the information covered by the NDA.
If such an NDA happened to exist for LargeCoin - I wouldn't be able to disclose that fact, if I had signed it.

If such an NDA existed and I had seen it but not signed it - I would be able to and highly likely to disclose that it existed.

I'm not disclosing that such an NDA exists - and I'm not saying why I'm not disclosing that. It's possible that it's because it doesn't exist.

I generally dislike NDAs  - but have been known to sign some of them.


I was unable to purchase any equipment from LargeCoin - but I'm not disclosing the reason, nor am I disclosing why I'm not disclosing the reason. It's possible that it's because I signed an NDA - or not.

Yeah.. I too tried this and didn't get any bites.
0.1BTC was probably too stingy - but I figured it was a good measure of whether people in my wider circle were even curious.
They don't seem to be.
