Comment Memory Non-Lossy? I beg to differ. (Score 1) 426

"But they point out that this cannot be how real memory works; otherwise, retrieving memories repeatedly would cause them to gradually decay. By assuming that the process of memory is non-lossy."

Really? I can barely remember last friday night. Let alone my circumcision 50 years ago. What was that girl's name who slapped me in my face? Or punched me... it's so hazy.... Caroline? Katy? Maybe it was Jeffery..... so fuzzy.... I had her number written on my hand.... oops right palm....

Memory non-lossy my ass...

Comment Bitcoin technology (Score 1) 404

Looks like as far as Rand is concerned, the technology of Bitcoin has been accepted... double spend problems etc... now he is worried about 'intrinsic value'.
While tying it to stocks is only one idea, tying it to something 'may' reduce volatility in pricing... but what?

I like Bitcoin as it is. But a second new coin tied to 'something' could be an interesting spin-off... The new IPO coins are usually tied to Bitcoins themselves...

I always wanted to do a 'Just-Dice' investment coin. Your coin purchase becomes a 'Just-Dice' investment account. The coins behave like any other coin but as 'Just-Dice' investment increases in value so do your coins... strangely this is STILL tied to Bitcoin. They all are really.

I would assume all this computer firepower will somehow level via market forces... BUT at the expense of little poor me and my e-trade account?
Seems to me the "knowing" of this could be used by someone who is smart... i.e. a "hacker" but again, how?
