Remember when the Pentagon, like any other government agency, says they have some new initiative what they mean is some contractor has given them a good reason to ask for more money.

Nobody at the Pentagon cares about "cybersecurity", they care about getting a high-paying job in the "private" sector once they retire from the military. It's all about funnelling money into the right hands.

Dotcom seems to me to be, so far, playing a perfect game.  The strongest evidence that he is not on the 'good' side is that he has executed with uncanny perfection in the time I've been paying attention (only since 'mega' started.)

I do fear that the 'bad' side has the ability to use whatever force escalation is required to win, but only at the expense of radically changing landscape and possibly in a way that would be to negative for them to stomach.  But the situation and balance of arms is not going to get any better for us as time goes by.  Our best chance is probably to release the hounds sooner than later.  Satoshi and Dotcom seem to be doing so, and they have my support and respect at this point.

edit: syntax.

The fallout and subsequent endgame appear unfavorable to the general public, and yet inevitable.

The best hope is to prolong  the period of time until then. Aggravating  the "bad side" into action serves only to expedite the process.

I basically dis-agree.

For one, it is still the case that many people (in the West at least) have an innate sense that 'liberty' (at risk of using a loaded term) is a good thing and something to be in favor of.  That sentiment can be squashed with the proper regime of propaganda.  I feel that this propaganda is very much underway and is being fairly successful, but it still takes a fair amount of time.  When the populations are prepared to accept totalitarianism in terms of freedoms of action, it will be unlikely that such things as Bitcoin and general privacy will be able to survive.  But we are not there yet by my estimation, but well on the way.

Secondly, there is an element of mutually assured destruction as I alluded to which relates to totalitarian regulation information exchange.  It will be unpleasant and costly for even those who have access to the reigns of power, and more critically, to their friends/benefactors.  Actually implementing a program of fascist control of the global internet is probably not something which anyone looks forward to.  Even those who could pull it off.  But as time goes by it becomes more tenable rather than less.  Thus, the cost of cracking down on us plebs will increasingly look like the lesser of to evils (the other option being loss of control and extractive operations against us.)

We could possibly win this war, or at least sue for tolerable peace terms at this point.  I feel that our chances diminish from here forward.  I could be wrong.

And now.. a tweet from Vikram Kumar the new Mega boss:

"Wondering why there hasn't been more media interest in zipbit https://zipbit.co/  NZ's very own Bitcoin merchant platform"

The amazing coincidences just keep piling up, don't they? Mega is announced with great fanfare, then just as the the first set of affiliates start to get their PayPal accounts frozen all of a sudden a new bitcoin payment processor nobody's ever heard of before opens for business and partners with a new voucher affiliate just in time.

Accepting bitcoins is great.  It can be a huge PITA paying for premium accounts sometimes.

It would be a pretty elaborate hoax if the grief heaped on Dotcom and his friends were faked.  That lends strength to the hypothesis that they are, at least at this time, the real deal.

I, for one, greatly appreciate the architectural lines that Mega is developing along.  It is the 'right' way to do cloud stuff, and it surprises me that most businesses could even legally accept doing business in the way that most cloud services offer.  That is, allowing data access to the cloud service provider.  When I used S3, I had to roll-my-own along the lines of what Mega does natively, and it was an expensive hassle which was mostly suitable for highly automated data storage and transfer needs.

If/when Mega gets e-mail and shared documents integrated I will be very keen to use their service and happy to pay them.  That I can do so with Bitcoin is an added bonus.
