Epicenter Bitcoin: EB94 – Gavin Andresen: On The Blocksize And Bitcoin's Governance
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8l11q9hsJM



Quote
As the debate about the blocksize continues to roar through the Bitcoin community, Gavin Andresen joins us to take a step back and ask the big questions: How should these decisions be made in the first place? What does the governance of Bitcoin look like now and what do we want it to look like in the future?

In a challenging time for Bitcoin, it's a critical discussion to have with the Chief Scientist of the Bitcoin Foundation and successor of Satoshi. We cover everything from the current blocksize debate to the nature of forks to how decisions will be made in Bitcoin XT.

Topics covered included:
- MIT Digital Currency Initiative
- The way Gavin thinks about Bitcoin
- How were decisions made throughout Bitcoin's history
- What the Nakamoto/market consensus is
- Forking the software vs a fork of the blockchain
- Who should make decisions in Bitcoin and how the interest of different stakeholders should be reconciled
- Why the desirable state is to move towards many different implementations
- How decisions will be made for the Bitcoin XT code base

I don't know who is more idiotic - Mike Hearn for his exceedingly large ego, or Gavin thinking forking was a good idea. There's also a special third kind of idiot, the ones that support Bitcoin XT, but even according to their website, that percentage is small and dwindling.

Whatever happened to the good old days when developers worked on software? Man, I sure miss that. Now everyone is trying to be their own mini-celebrity, even if they don't have the social skills or even a good reason to try.
