Terribly rude, aren't you meant to moderate? Or do do abusive insults as well do it for you?

That's a business valuation, not a personal insult.

I considered people who plays with only ideas, totally worthless as far as moneymaking goes.

Looking for freelancers..looking for reliable freelancers...

It's so damn hard to find reliable writers.

Bitcoin Weekly Business Database Development Update

Articles will now be linking to profiles in the Bitcoin Weekly database.

http://bitcoinweekly.com/articles/the-glbse-and-decentralization

For example, at the bottom, you will see the blue data box in which certain factoids are mentioned. Our first factoids are businesses mentioned.

Somebody has to manage all the parts in the equation. You don't have to have any software skills to launch a great application. You just need to know how to delegate. This is really a skill unto itself.

Speaking of delegation, I don't man the editor post anymore. Mostly, I advertise their articles and write the codebase that let my writers do their work.

So all you need is someone else to program it for you and someone else to pay for the programmers. So where would you come in?
He maintains the vision, design and the financial backing.

Somebody did the financial backing. Somebody else did the hacking. He's just an ideaman, who is worthless. He have some programming skill, so he isn't entirely worthless.

Anybody can have a "brilliant idea" and a "vision", but can you survive at time self-doubt, loss of willpower, and intense negative feedback?

Idea thinking is the first step in a long marathon.

(Witness http://bitcoinweekly.com as it survives high turnover of employees/freelancers, editor resignation, one pdf and two sites and the founder's resignation from The Bitcoin Times)

I agree with you that scrutiny is important, it is a fledgling project and still far from perfect. But a lot of people come with criticisms without any ideas on how to improve things. If you start out hostile and railing at the community, that's what you get back.


Scrutiny is important but not-well-thought out scrutiny is bad since we don't get good scrutiny. That's partly the fault of the community since we didn't make an attempt to answer with a FAQ link or write down the answer in the FAQ.

Hey, I can do the python one.

I will try to teach as must as understandable to a newbie in 5 min.

Yes. It's still open. I want the most very basic python tutorial.

The gambling industry is sure a big industry in the bitcoin economy.

So why I am ain't in hell yet sharing places with recent victims of demonic armies?  Huh

I guess the devil doesn't really exists and some Christians are really just nuts.  Grin

There is NOTHING more dangerous to "our democratic form of government" than the corporate control of campaign finance.

A democracy is dangerous for our health, yo!

And legitimacy? Sorry - we (the people) are entirely disenfranchised, so "legitimacy" is little more than a piece of paper with "legitimate" written on it. Well 7 billion can play at that game. 

Save your breath when it's the people that elect the politicans. Elite are inevitable in human societies, but it is how we select them that all it matters. Everything else is just a sideshow.

The bitcoin development leadership were selected by merit, not by popular votes. They keep their power not through winning fair election but through complete voluntary consent.

Politicans kiss babies to win elections. We bitcoiners don't give a diddy fuck about developers kissing babies as long they don't fuck with our money.

How do we know if your business is not a scam?

That's a fair point, and in a system like Bitcoin, where there is no system of financial regulation, it is hard to guarantee that your money is safe anywhere other than your own wallet. However, I'm hoping to show that this is legitimate over time just like your own GLBSE. Also, the nearest expiring option is in 9 days, and people will find out by then whether their contracts are honored.

I don't run GLBSE. Nefario already have a reputation when he started GLBSE.

You popped up out of nowhere with only one post.
1694  Other / Off-topic / Re: Domain Name Squatting on: May 21, 2011, 09:15:05 PM
Is that a problem in and of itself? Sure. But no, it's not given that someone who owns a domain name actually has the rights to it. You can lose them if it's shown that you are abusing trademarks (or are just too little for the trademark in question - e.g. Nissan)

Namecoin essentially made domain names property by the virtue of its codebase. No need for messy human conventions, judges, courts, etc.

Business Database Development Update

http://bitcoinweekly.com/businesses shows all the businesses currently in the bitcoinweekly database. In each business profile, there is a discussion thread for that particular profile.

It's still in early development so it isn't that useful yet.

How many gazillion of thread that must be created on deflation and bitcoin?

eta: okay, probably too high a quantity for that.  Someone is chaining transfers, now that I look closer.  Could be all sorts of reasons.

That why I said "nothing to see here, move along." Roll Eyes

Looks like the forum starts to generate 2000 posts a day. That's good for bitcoin.
