I want a Greek bailout

February 2nd, 2015

While I don't think it's fair that greeks mismanaged their money, I feel they are Europeans like us and we should help them. It's a known fact that the south of the EU cannot produce economically like the north. So for european unity I believe a solidarity tax with the southern countries would be a proper thing. We want to be on a flat and even playing field in all of Europe but industry in the north is way beyond the infrastructure that the south has. Everyone would pay into this tax, all europeans, but it goes back to the south. So in effect it means the north is working for the south, yes. But that's the price of unity we have to pay, perhaps the south can repay us in other ways.


The rich can't buy smarts, can they?

January 28th, 2015

I think they can. Artificial Intelligence, once it's on the market the rich will be not just rich but also super smart. Because they can put full trust into AI, to make them richer. So the monopoly that peasants have over them on the Internet... well the days are numbered for that. Just my thoughts.


Purchased some Reggae

January 28th, 2015

I have the winter blues. I decided it's worth it to spend another 8 euros for reggae. I have purchased Delly Ranx's The Next Chapter. I'll be busy listening now.


Electricity (day) consumption up (unfortunately)

January 27th, 2015

I got my electricity bill today. Something really weird is going on because I spent less electricity for heating (night electricity which charges up my electric furnaces) but more for day electricity. In a little HTML table it would look like this:


It could be one of two new computers, one of which is only on at days. It could be freifunk usage only during the days but not at nights, and it could be that I use my network which is doubly encrypted only during the days mostly. I'll be curious what 2015 will be like. It will likely go a little higher too.


Cryptowars: Organised Crime and Terrorists

January 26th, 2015

I have had this on my mind for a long time now. Terrorists cause laws to be put in place to weaken crypto, or attempted laws. This falls into the hands of Organized Crime who control corporations who provide Internet. At the point when innocents join a provider that is corrupt their crypto can be read and placed on the Organized Crime black market. Now, the problem with this is who is a greater enemy to government? Organized Crime or Terrorists? Please don't tell me OC doesn't exist. AFAIK in Canada there have been identified six groups of Organized Crime and many are multinational meaning that Germany too has at least some of these groups.

Let's look at Organised Crime further, if these people were in power we'd have:

  • Disappearances (people being eradicated from life)
  • Shadow Governments (think of a place where OC runs a region)
  • Elitism (only those with an edge on technology reign)
  • Stronger crime syndicates (more money will remain in the underground economy)
  • Less taxes, less common taxpayers money
  • Bribes on government would pick pick up
If that doesn't scare the bejeezus out of you but terrorists do, then you should reevaluate life on this world. This is why I'm for strong crypto that, yes, even our government can't break. Perhaps we should prepare ourselves mentally to allow terrorist attacks and work politically to prevent them instead of judicially. I know OC is a bigger beast than terrorism and if we don't get it in check it will cost us a lot more than terrorism ever will.

I just noticed the dates were wrong for January's articles. I forgot to increment the year from 2014 to 2015 in my template script that I use to write the articles with. It should be fixed now. Sorry.


Is it more than Space Junk?

January 24th, 2015

I read somewhere that companies want to put their own satellites into space to connect the remaining 40% of Internet-illiterates. Google, SpaceX and Virgin Galactic I think. They dream of satellite formations that envelope the world and are able to give Internet in far remote corners where laying fibreoptic cabling is too expensive. I personally would tell these companies to "stand back" and hold that thought. If everyone does their own "Iridium constellation" then we'll have a major problem with space junk. What we need is 1 platform for everyone to keep it sane. So I hope these companies will "network" in the form of humans talking together and planning together instead of competeing and making a mess of the space that surrounds us.

I would bet that if we put reflectors or laser optic communication devices on the moon that people would control and talk to from earth that the problem would solve itself. The moon is seen by pretty everybody on earth but not always. So you can set up a communications link to give people a "downtime" to think, dream, plan and improve their methods of communicating with the moon and each other. In my view this is much more reliable and constructive than leaving space junk in orbit around earth. I've noticed that I think different when I'm online. I compulse more, I don't use my imagination as great as I do when I've spent time away from the net. Some examples are a long train journey (clickety clackety) or even being in the closed ward of a psychiatric institution.

In the end perhaps I wanted to put a thought out there when I had moon.virgostar.net on a Hong Kong VPS. In my view it's all about the moon, not earth orbit.


This is how fair the world is

January 19th, 2015

1% > %99. After the collapse of nations which is looming I predict people will want to do something different, if we still have a chance.


Purchased some Reggae

January 15th, 2015

In order to chill out and have something new to listen to I purchased some Reggae. The lucky artist I picked this time is Khago - The Real One (album). These 10 songs join my collection of reggae now.


And our rights diminish...

January 13th, 2015

I'm unsure whether it should be "thanks charlie" or "merci charlie". As there is now tougher laws, tougher controls and tougher everything-that-takes-my-freedoms. Even in England they are considering outlawing strong crypto. I guess we may as well start paying a tax to organized crime immediately since they can just read through the crypto that's weakened. Good thought! How free and creative!
