    China’s mining share went from 75% to 0%. Transactions are probably also at 0%. They interdict the Bitcoin protocol much like other internet communication.

    it's very very expensive and time consuming for a government, even China, to search through transactions and link them to a single person. If it could have been done, they would have done it already.
    This is false, and is the motivation for confidential cryptocurrencies built on polynomial commitment, etc.

    I am optimistic about cryptocurrencies, but you aren’t realistic about their stature relative to the government’s monopoly on force.

    The Pacific region has got cross immunity and people are not as fat.

    I mean the city is mostly fucked already, but at least the populace voted to overrule the city council on allowing hobo encampments everywhere. I thought that was a step in the right direction. (PS. I'm the dumb fuck who opened a business here... a mistake I won't repeat.)

    I just got back from Houston this weekend. There were a disturbing number of out-of-state plates on the highway. I hope these people are thinking clearly.

    Amazing. The population of the country is 125,360,000. The population of Tokyo is 14 million. And 6 people are dead. More people died of pufferfish poisoning.

    Never forget that Californians voted for both prop 187 and prop 8. But what does it matter when a judge can pull down his pants and take a steaming shit on the will of the voters? If 187 had been implemented, California might be bluer than Texas right now. I am convinced that pure, direct democracy would be better than the shit show we have to deal with in this decaying republic. Even mob rule is better than rule by a hostile elite.

    It all started in grad school. I was auditing the late Dr. Hecht Nielsen's class Neural Computing. Part of it was business-oriented. He required students to read each week's Economist cover-to-cover. It was meant to broaden our minds, to help us design a business model that would fit into the larger economy. He knew a monk on Mt. Athos, and from their conversations, said they faced very similar economic challenges as found in the rest of the world. If the monks couldn't insulate themselves from economics, then neither could we engineers in our ivory towers. I am grateful to him for that, and am sad that the Economist is a socially leftist rag. I don't know when that started. (Dr. Nielsen was a blast. Towering and wide like a football player. Would pop a Diet Rite at the beginning of every class. Was a polymath who had an interest in everything, and many abilities to match.)
