Weekly Wrap 191: Loving the bomb and Bitcoin, with trees

Eucalypt Bark 4: click to embiggenMy week of Monday 27 January to Sunday 2 February 2014 was, as I’d suspected it would be, the clear beginning of the start of the working year.

OK, the week hasn’t quite finished yet. It’s still relatively early on Sunday. But the day will be spent pottering around various work-related things, so I feel confident about that opening paragraph.

It’s pretty much an Australian tradition that the media silly season ends on Australia Day — although I did see someone suggest that in Sydney the summer holiday season runs from the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in early October through to the Mardi Gras parade at the cusp of February-March. We are a proud nation.

Articles

Media Appearances

  • On Tuesday I spoke about Bitcoin, in the light of the arrests of a Bitcoin evangelist and a currency trader on money laundering charges, on ABC Radio’s The World Today.

Corporate Largesse

None. I’m clearly doing this wrong.

The Week Ahead

I’ll be in the Blue Mountains until Friday, in all likelihood. It’s the first week of a new month, so I daresay I’ll be keeping a low profile because none of those bastard clients have paid their invoices yet.

My writing slate includes two columns for ZDNet Australia, one for Corrupted Nerds — that’s one of the two pieces I still owe my Pozible supporters — and probably one for CSO Online.

I’m also doing the research and scripting for a panel discussion I’m moderating the week after — that’s due to be announced on Monday.

    Let there be light: and there was light.

    With humans colonizing everything there is one planet they will never
    crush – Sun.

    Sun gives life and SUN cannot be touched by anything. This is one of
    reasons in ancient Egypt and all other cultures there were cults of
    Sun and its Gods were most important.

    Now in our crypto-world we have something important that touches its
    base – SUN Coin.

    SUN Coin Specification
    * Based on the Scrypt algorithm
    * 10 Coins per block (rare!)
    * 6 hour difficulty retargeting
    * 60 Seconds Per Block
    * 92,955,807 Total coins (this is number of Miles to the Sun from
    Earth)

    Release date 07.02.2014 – 5.00 UTC+1

    We are releasing on block 0 so everyone has a chance of getting in on
    the launch.

    We will not be mining the coin ourselves until the coin reaches block
    50!

    So get in early and enjoy the spoils.

    Fair launch is what should be standard in crypto-community and we
    believe SUN with help it.

    We do take genesis block- 1% of coins for Startup/Giveaways/Bounties.
    We will not keep it ourselves.
