    Funny, when Feudalism was all the rage, some people used to say the same thing...

        Yes A president of the United States said a similar phrase to the FED, but i dont remember which one.

          Nice write up - thanks for sharing. Here's another one you might like by Andreesen - http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/deal...tcoin-matters/. It's very level headed and takes people's desires, ethics, morals and service in consideration and frames bitcoin in that context...

          I love bitcoin as much as the next guy - but to think it can thrive to its fullest potential outside of the boundaries of law, morality and ethics - all connected to a power base of people/governments... is the worst kind of pipe dream that could sap it of whatever potential it currently has or can bring.

          Even a cursory reading of bitcointalk.org definitely gives you the impression that BitCoin is as big as the internet revolution - which it is not... or the next best thing since sliced bread and butter.. which it is not. I am certain I'm in a minority (at least as far as bitcointalk goes)... which is why I probably stopped reading it.

          Phoronix is cool, Michael puts in the time to synthesize all Linux/UNIX newsworthy things here, so I am still here .

            There's only two way you are seeing that. 1) You haven't updated Chrome in a long time. 2) You explicitly re-enabled the Apps page in chrome://flags after Google disabled it.

            The default new tab view in Chrome now is a list of your most-visited sites.

              Michael turned it into a political discussion when he said in his article that he is a "believer in capitalism".

                You don't have to have experienced a thing first hand, to know about it. You can learn from the experience and knowledge of others... It is called written word. Books. You should try it some time...

                  seamonkey-project.org

                  Get back to SEAMONKEY.
                  The Original modern Mozilla application suite descendent,
                  that you should be using, anyway,
                  instead of playing monkey with Firefox all these years now.
                  http://www.seamonkey-project.org/
                  And yes, apply View->Apply theme>Modern to 'normal' browser look and feel.
                  And you gen Mail client, IRC client and small HTML editor with it. ;P

                      Truth is, regardless of what a working group is called - a "foundation for homeless children" or "organization for preserving democracy" - its members are almost always paid, and usually well paid. Nobody works for free, not in capitalism nor in socialism.

                      The problem is finding the golden middle where you can earn enough yet not be an ads circus.
                      The fact that you even had to explain that clearly says that Mozilla should just go for the ads and don't even bother to explain the motives. They won't convince ignorants anyway.

                      Most of the reactions are missplaced, especially that the move may well mean that Mozilla is exploring options of loosening its dependancy on cash from Google.
