Meanwhile, I’ve been waiting more than half an hour for this taxi so, in the absence of teledildonics, I’ll just make do with this salami.

Still inordinately pleased with myself for working teledildonics into the conversation. I am a child.

Have western nations stopped hacking? I’m sure they must have, ‘cos Ms Gillard would never be a complete and utter hypocrite.

It’s true, @leslienassar, it did that to me and I don’t even use Facebook! Imagine if I did!

Oh good. The reference to teledildonics stayed in @DownloadABC and obviously it wasn’t me who started it because it never is.

“My friends’ faces… just being able to stab them in the face… that could be quite appealing.” Wisdom from @Sydski on @DownloadABC.

I assume that @TheIPA getting @TonyAbbottMHR to speak was part of what can best be termed “the long troll”.

@lukehopewell @marcfennell Yeah I know, but it’s been a long and strange week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

Somehow for both @marcfennell and me, @lukehopewell represents the voice of reason.

via Janetter for Mac

Weirdly, just as we finished recording @DownloadABC and thought “Do it again with new guests”, both @marcfennell and I went “@lukehopewell!”

@kauer389 Anyone would think I’d dissed Justin Bieber… ;)

via Plume for Android in reply to kauer389

@kauer389 But I’m intrigued that me expressing that as my free choice is such a personal threat to some who chose differently.

via Plume for Android in reply to kauer389

@kauer389 Kinda what my final sentence says. Digital cash? Probably one day, sure. This one? I won’t be touching it.

via Plume for Android in reply to kauer389

@BitHubAU Yawn. Grow up and address the arguments, if you’re capable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to VanCleeeef

@kauer389 I guess my other main point there is that on historical time scales this “trusted crypto” is unlikely to survive long.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kauer389

@kauer389 I get the gist of the maths (computing science background), but is “trust us, we’re mathematicians” good enough for a currency?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kauer389

@BitHubAU Oh piss off, you pathetic little cunt. You’re too stupid to realise your “insults” actually support my arguments about trust.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to VanCleeeef

“That’s the thing with bitcoin it’s like gold and QE [quantitative easing?] can’t happen,” asserts Matt_H_79.

“Old people often can’t see the benefits of new technologies until there [sic] using it without even realising it.”

via Janetter for Mac

“Your [sic] old and probably a Keynesian,” comments Matt_H_79, no doubt revealing two of the big fears in his world. This is hilarious!

via Janetter for Mac

Imagine this, Bitcoin Fans: Someone could indeed understand Bitcoin, and its context, and still conclude that they don’t trust it. OMFG!

via Janetter for Mac

@kauer389 Yes, I believe I made that point in the article, more or less.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kauer389

@intosix I find that a fairly patronising comment. Why do you think I don’t “understand” it?

Ignoring my computing scientist hat for the moment, “Trust us, we’re anonymous mathematicians” strikes me as a poor model for money.

Is there someone I could talk to who’s a Bitcoin user who doesn’t sound like a petulant 13yo? Someone who doesn’t just talk in slogans?

via Janetter for Mac

Sophisticated stuff. Discussion and a conclusion is “hating on” something. Christ, children, if you think that’s “hating” you’ll be shocked.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BitHubAU: @stilgherrian is too busy hating on because he missed out and is jealous just like every hater.
