I hope you're right.  There are turbulent times ahead, and we'll have need of quick thinkers.

this is the equivalent of a mafia foot soldier visiting the feds 'just to chat' or the head of the nuclear program visiting iran 'just to give a presentation'

Honestly... way to sell this whole idea out.   It's one thing to tolerate the CIA but another to get right into bed with them.  Noone is saying to flout the law, but somehow I dont think that martin luther king would have gone to a clan meeting cuz he got paid 3000$.

Do you HONESTLY think these guys are fascinated by the intellectual curiosities of this like little school children?  

Sometimes a little passive resistance is CALLED for.. there's enough people selling out to the CIA they dont need YOUR HELP.



I would have agreed with you until Senator Schumer decided to get holy against the freedom of anonymity.

He's putting his bets with the DEA.

We can protect our interests in relationship with the CIA.

…  Assuming, of course, bitcoin isn't a CIA project to begin with :-).

Seriously, they have their own budget and their own sources of income.  The way the law is written, they don't get any oversight when they are not paid by Congress.  Hence, they make sure that they don't get paid by Congress.

Great, so bitcoin is going to pit the CIA et al against the DEA et al
let's see who else? the FBI come in behind DEA, NSA probably CIA, DIA fathered Tor, SS are branch of treasury so they go on the blue team
{CIA NSA DIA} vs {DEA FBI SS}
bitcoin in the middle ... looks ripe for an anagram.

Please explain how Gavin giving a presentation to the CIA equates to "selling out".

The beauty of open source is that there are no secrets. All the information that Gavin could present on Bitcoin is freely available to anyone with internet access.

I'm fascinated by the technical implementation of Bitcoin -- does that make me a little school child? You may see the CIA as just another three-letter government agency of jack-booted thugs, but you'd have to admit that they are one of the geekier three-letter government agencies of jack-booted thugs. I'm not defending the CIA or its actions; I'm just pointing out that the CIA attracts a lot of quality crypto talent so why wouldn't they be interested in the technical aspects of Bitcoin?

Intelligence agencies, governments or people aren't the enemy of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is neutral and non-ideological. It doesn't have a cause or an enemy beyond security and privacy. Just as cash, anyone can use it; A terrorist, gun runner, ice cream salesman, hosting company or a hippie selling alpaca socks.

It's just safer and more anonymous than ordinary currency.

Well, bitcoins can be compared to bombs, won't they see them as financial bombs?. You can have those at home and play with them. Tell that to the FBI. Grin

Your observation is right on the money xonar. BitCoin is an equal opportunity "offender" Smiley - it gives the opportunity to do both, Good and Evil. It delegates this responsibility to the individual.

Ultimately, whom the individual is serving, Satan or the Lamb of God, is going to decide toward what purpose it is used.

Let's pray that most people will use it for Good, eventually, as has been the case with every other currency so far (dollars, euros, etc).

I vote lamb. Lamb tastes better. I've never had Satan, but I imagine the meat would be a bit overcooked...

Seitan is rather flavorless unless you marinate it well.

Don't quit your day job.  Oh, sorry.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I'm amazed by the cuteness of those who said "Bitcoin could be great for agencies paying informants on terrorist-supporting countries".

If CIA hooks up their mainframe to mine bitcoins. We are all fucked, big time.
