  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    Charlie, Would something like Ferguson happen in the Merchant Princes: The Next Generation? I have a hard time imagining that the full blown police state of that time line would even let information about the riots out. Or would they...
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Gotta remind myself. Don't feed the troll. Don't feed the troll. Don't feed the troll....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Thanks. Now, who shall begin reporting them to the NC SoS for the actions of the folks raising funds in their name?...
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Fine. Proof that Random Acts is registered with the NC SoS as a charity. Filings for 2013. List of current board of officers and a means of contacting them. That would do as a start for facts. Because for a...
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Well, I just searched the NC SoS website. Nothing. So I just contacted them and asked if they were chartered in NC and where to find their filings. We'll see what happens....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Hmmm. So that only leaves filing complaints with the Secretary of State that its chartered in....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Now, for their charity. Contact e-mail for complaints (particularly about GISHWHES and their behavior) is concerns@therandomact.org They're using the same anonymizing service as GISHWHES, but unlike GISHWHES, they do offer a PO Box mailing address: Random Acts PO Box 2039...
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Digging in, it looks like they're using an anonymizing service offered by GoDaddy.com called domains by proxy. Now, the who is offers a complaint line and an email, that I suspect will be worth nothing, but hey, who knows: Registrar...
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Target the charity they donate to (Megpie's summary makes them look sketchy) and the GISHTWHES hosting service. Either see if they can be nailed for fraud or violating ToS. Or both....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    Charlie, I know you're an atheist, but you're showing the patience of a saint here. Now, who regulates and investigates dodgy charities in the UK? After all, tips to their in box would be a true act of kindness that...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    I vote for 471. Wait. What do you mean its not a democracy?...
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    And over at Kirkus as well. https://www.kirkusreviews.com/features/your-best-bets-speculative-fiction-reads-july/...
  • Commented on Some news about the Hugo voters packet
    Ah well. Wish it were otherwise. Thanks for being transparent Charlie....
  • Commented on Checking in
    Congratulations on your nominations Charlie....
  • Commented on Generation Z
    Heteromeles, please write such a thing....
  • Commented on Generation Z
    Interesting post Charlie. Provides a lot of food for thought, and the dish I'm chewing on is the automation of service jobs. and I'm thinking of the medical variety. Why? Well, providers and nurses are expensive. And anything that can...
  • Commented on Why AIs Won't Ascend in the Blink of an Eye - Some Math
    And for the curious, here it is. This is what got me curious about Stross and Doctorow. http://www.popsci.com/scitech/article/2004-08/science-fiction-about-go-blind?nopaging=1...
  • Commented on Why AIs Won't Ascend in the Blink of an Eye - Some Math
    Read Charlie's old article in Popular Science?...
  • Commented on Why AIs Won't Ascend in the Blink of an Eye - Some Math
    Curiouser and curiouser. Lots here about AI, but what about IA (Intelligence Augmentation)? I'm not sure we'll ever interface like Neuromancer, but perhaps something like Manfred Macx's glasses from Accelerando?...
  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    Without fiat money and the ability of the total size of the economy to grow we pretty much break capitalism. What is amazing me about this discussion is how many apparently right wing, capitalist libertarians want to kill capitalism. Anybody...
  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    Carl @ 639 has a point. Charlie I know this is your watering hole but that was unusual for you. Could you please not do it again? And Carl, you're the second libertarian besides Radley Balko I've ever agreed with....
  • Commented on Over-Extended Metaphor for the day
    FWIW, it made me smile. Then think about robot religious wars. Which again, made me smile....
  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    Charlie, You must like stirring up the hornets nest. Between this and your comments on space colonization, I'm surprised the Promethean awards even list your books. Or are you setting this up as a honeypot/tar-baby for the libertarians, crypto currency...
  • Commented on Trust Me (I'm a kettle)
    I know I'm a bit late to the party, but has anyone considered the potential of doing something similar with a thermostat? Especially the smart ones if a bit of malware gets slipped through the QC process? Its got advantages...
  • Commented on Trust Me (I'm a kettle)
    Yes, you're correct. The idea was that once you have the panopticon, the temptation for universal law enforcement comes in where all the laws are enforced all the time. Stack this with the concept of a day. In fact our...
  • Commented on PSA: Why there won't be a third book in the Halting State trilogy
    Lessee, I see folks have mentioned the FSM, Hinduism, Nordic Paganism, Buddhism ... oh! I know! Can the Jedi get in on this too? And I'm wondering if I can get John Barnes' the Wager declared a religion. Sort of...
  • Commented on PSA: Why there won't be a third book in the Halting State trilogy
    No, team up with Chris Brookmyre. That I'd love to read....
  • Commented on And in case you think that wasn't bad enough ...
    Lord fuck-a-duck. To the article and your short story....
  • Commented on Commercial interlude
    Nope. Nor a HOG. I suspect either one would have resulted in more happy pills for Bob though....
  • Commented on Parasites
    Um, digging around on the site I found a remark you made about Zynga many moons ago http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2012/05/bubble-20.html. Otherwise, the only links in the entry are to wikipedia entries about various parasites. Did I miss something?...
