I sense a DERAILMENT!

Derailment is actually quite apropos for topic. If you were a Porcfest attendee you'd understand.  Wink

True is this. Govt. fear mongering was the order of the day at porcfest. One day we were sitting at the Bernanke Bitcoin exchange, drinking beer, talkin' about oppressive states, and a black helicopter flew over the camp ground. Everyone stopped, looked up, and laughed.

Now, I don't know who owned said helicopter. The obvious connotation was entirely too funny to ignore.

I think I was playing poker when that happened. I didn't see the chopper, but heard it loud and clear and knew a lot of people would get a "kick" out of it.

And I almost forgot, ... there's probably a few Bitcoiners that are gonig to be at Burning Man:



 - http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=74963.0

Maybe so, but they won't be openly using it, since the Burning Man people forbid the use of money at their event.  Also they forbid advertising.

Burning Man is very different from Porcfest in those two ways.

Probably a bad idea to setup an exchange at Burning Man due to possible bad publicity. It's lot easier to set it up at various physical libertarian gathering.

There will never be a bitcoin exchange at Burning Man. The event is explicitly anti-money in all forms. I've been to Burning Man and it was fucking awesome, and certainly many of the people there would love the Bitcoin idea, but it's not a venue at which Bitcoin can be openly promoted in any way.

I had a thread about this:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=74963.0

Basically, I'm down to go and give free things away sponsored by Bitcoin people/companies

We should get tickets for next summer as soon as they go on sale via lottery system

At the future of money & tech summit, Jered and I met Mr. Michael Michaels the founder of Burning Man.

I asked him for some free tickets, but he put on his top hat and walked away  Huh

could be some giveaways, though.  Right?

"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."

So, let me get this straight: An event who is anti-money on all forms charges you money for entrance?

This pretty much sealed the deal. I'm going to stick to watching the videos of the giant flaming octopus and its cousins. Look for me at PorcFest, but not at Burning Man.

You buy into all that government fear mongering? Global warming fear mongering for the left, terrorism fear mongering for the right. Government growth for all!

I buy into good science, it doesn't matter who funded it. The US government (other than funding some science) is doing nothing to prevent global warming, in fact they are doing much to accelerate it. Such as invading foreign countries (which increases the likelihood of terrorism, incidentally) to keep the oil flowing. The oil companies fund the climate change skeptics, but that's corporate propaganda, not science.

Corporate tyrrany is just as harmful as government tyrrany. Actually, its hard to know which is the bigger problem, given the revolving door for power-brokers between government and corporations (public and private). I think the real power structure behind the government is the private sector (eg the Federal Reserve, a private corporation whose board-members are all CEOs of private banks and companies).

Am I still a libertarian anarchist?  Grin

Yes. You still sound like a libertarian and/or anarchist. The current form of government, which mixes corporate interests with public, is closer to mercantilism or fascism. Wanting corporations to play by the same rules as individuals is in fact necessary for capitalism to function properly.

If you're not a sceptic, you don't believe in good science.  Time will show the truth, but it largely has.  The computer simulation models used to support GW politics have been consistantly wrong in the short term, who in their right mind would believe that they could be inaccurate in the first few years and get more accurate in 100 years?  Predictive simulations don't work like that, proven by the 'butterfly effect' theorm.

The irony is that the best long term weather predictive models that we have today are pencil/paper models developed in the early 1800's.  The track record of The Old Farmers' Almanac makes these modern supercomputer aided models look like they were developed either by amatures or frauds.
