i think it's funny that there are people that think that an institution whose independence can be revoken by the state are completely independent from the state. It is clearly nonsense. (Yes, i am refering to the FED)
This reminds me of something the Japanese prime minister said to their central bank last year. It was to the effect of "if you don't do what I say, I will take away your independece".
Beliefs that condition our lives are not expensive, and the more we consume them, the more real they become. But what is believed is a product that has no common ground with the truth, since it is a totally different notion...
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 .
On the Chrome new tab page, i have links showing up to Google search, GMail, Youtube, and something called the Chrome Web Store. I don't even know what that is, so i'm pretty sure i didn't go there and have it added to my list.
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.
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
