  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    And then they do lock up the money - most of the economy is in stocks, and they play musical chairs with them, not actually create products or services. Which gets to something that OGH regularly points out: money is...
  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    But not anticipation of anticipation of anticipation of growth. That would just be silly....
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    In this case it's not so much that security for bitcoin is bad as it is that people fail to understand that pseudonymity is very different from anonymity. Bitcoin is not, and has never been, anonymous. There is always an...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    Shoot. double post. Mods, can you please delete @950 and this one? Thanks!...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    My biggest complaint with a lot of modern board games is that there's usually only one or two optimal strategies. If everybody is playing those it often comes down to a question of who has better luck (and since nearly...

  • Commented on Yokai Land Q&A
    @168, I operate on the assumption that the dwarves of cryptocurrency mining are on their way to unearthing the Hidden Fun Stuff of Dwarf Fortress fame. This is, of course, the beginning of the current timeline turning into the backstory...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    I know that I'm responding to a really old comment, but I wanted to flag that Portland sadly ended the fareless transit service in city center back in 2012. It's particularly annoying because it made traffic there a little bit...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    jcandiloro @ 1021: Can you lay off the hate for people with MBAs For what it's worth, I read the complaint not so much as about MBAs per se as about those who think that because they have an MBA,...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Completely off-topic, but apparently David Graeber passed away yesterday. Debt was a really, truly remarkable book and he was still relatively young. https://twitter.com/nikadubrovsky/status/1301504647769792512...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Re OGH @ 16: Even if it falls short, it's going to be spectacular My understanding of rocketry is that generally, given the energies and/or velocities involved, any sort of failure tends towards the spectacular....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I know that this blog's commentariat isn't filled with too many sport enthusiasts, but the combination of pandemic-driven lockdowns ending seasons prematurely (see also, the Olympics) and the economic collapse tanking the net worth of owners, there's going to be...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Not surprising to me to hear that Asher is climate denialist/brexiteer. His Owner trilogy felt like a pretty big giveaway about his personal political views. But it's a real shame because the Polity setting has a couple really interesting ideas...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    RE: Charlie @488 Something has gone very, very wrong when the government has been captured by the mining lobby so effectively. I have a sneaking suspicion that the something is named Murdoch and is also largely responsible for government capture...
