I was going to post and say thanks for the last 2 quotes, they are awesome, so Thanks, re-quoted for posterity.  

But in general the more responsibility you give away, the more complacent and less adaptable you become.

there must be an imminent rally coming on or something Tongue

Something must be up.  I guess I'll scrape my $0.07 and BTC0.06 out of there, lest it dissappear  Tongue 
To think I used to hold some coins on there.... what's left for Canadians?

"The Telegraph’s recent coverage of HSBC amounts to a form of fraud on its readers. It has been placing what it perceives to be the interests of a major international bank above its duty to bring the news to Telegraph readers"

so sad:

AT&T charges $29 more for gigabit fiber that doesn’t watch your Web browsing

http://arstechnica.com/business/2015/02/att-charges-29-more-for-gigabit-fiber-that-doesnt-watch-your-web-browsing/
A good VPN is about 5 euros/month.

Take the $29 discount, route 100% of your traffic through a VPN, and you still come out ahead.

but how can you know that the VPN won't watch you?

you pay with bitcoin and it doesnt matter if they watch you. they won't know who "you" are.

^Horrible advice.  The VPN sees your IP, which is exactly what you're trying to obfuscate by using a VPN.

Exactly, in the end if you use a centralized service (such as a VPN) you have to trust that that service is not compromised somehow.

This is why P2P solutions, such as tor or bitcoin, are superior at maintaining anonymous traffic.

For example, with bitcoin if you run a full node, connect to the P2P network and send a transaction directly from your IP address, even if you are connected directly to an attacker trying to determine the source of that transaction they still could not determine your IP as the transaction's source, because your node is most likely a relay node for that transaction.

Now if you keep sending transactions to the the same node, then they could statistically determine your IP as the source. But if your node has a policy to always send new transactions to a different initial peer, then this attack becomes hard to impossible. Tor works the same way, if you route through 3 peers, then as long as one is honest you should (in theory) be fine.

A great application for bitcoin is to provide a funding model for tor P2P relay nodes. WIth bitcoin there can be a market for those willing to pay for anonymous traffic. This is not possible with fiat, because it is easy to trace the source of funds, but bitcoin provides a fully anonymous solution from payment through the end service. So lebing's point on using bitcoin was partially right, you just can't do so with a centralized service.

Gold Collapsing. Bitcoin bottoming.
this time gold got a punch again. If that is BTC-positive, that is another question.

This is the logical outcome, eventually there will be no such thing as ISP's, it will back to the truly distributed architecture original envisaged. The medum term outcome has been distorted by the lack of a resource allocation mechanism, i.e. internet money, for the market to correctly price and pay for network traffic, private or otherwise. If the packets encoded their own transport payments within them, so to speak, then the relays do not need this massive out-of-band billing and payment contraption that has globbed onto the internet and created opportunities for all the corpro-facist mahem we witness today, AT&T, WorldCom, ComCast, NSA, Google, etc.

at first glance this is terrible news. the pre-emptive closing is weird. i had nothing there, so no worries, but i was an avid user for past couple of years. a big whole is left in the market now.

And what will they do with the reams of personal financial information they demanded?

That's a great quote, where/who is it from?
I bump this question, as I am also interested to know who was the author.

Slightly OT, but I really like Coinbase's feed to track their exchange's order book in real time. I used to have a MtGox tracker, but Coinbase's is _much_ more functional.

If you are interested in seeing the feed work in real time, do the following.

In Chrome go to: https://exchange.coinbase.com/trade

Next click the bars in the upper right hand corner of Chrome. Select "More Tools" then "Developer Tools".
Next select the "Network" tab in the tools window.
Then hit F5 to refresh the full page.
A long list of network interfaces will appear, click on the one that starts with "ws-feed."
After clicking "ws-feed." a new windows will appear. Click on the "Frames" tab.
You might want to expand the window a bit to see more by dragging the left side of the developer tools window over a bit.

What you will now see is the real time feed of order flow, showing new orders to the book, trade matches, order cancellation, order changes, etc. The webpage will track these changes and visually display the real time book in the left side of the page.

Documentation on the feed is here: https://docs.exchange.coinbase.com/#websocket-feed

It's pretty fun to watch, well at least for me...

that is cool.

reminds me of back when i was solo mining with Stratum.  you really get the feel of the power of the network watching hash guesses scrolling rapidly up your monitor in realtime.

Yes, that was definitely a fun part of mining, just sitting there and watching the hashes tick by and then realizing that there were many thousands of other miners doing the exact same thing. Bitcoin is easily the largest computer by far, the fact it is a distributed computer is amazing.
