TonyK is Movie-Plot Threat Contest Winner
« on: June 13, 2015, 08:22:04 PM »

See this from Bruce Schneier.

The contest was looking for a movie-plot threat which shows the evils of encryption.

Quote
On May 14, I announced the five semifinalists. The votes are in, and the winner is TonyK:

November 6 2020, the morning of the presidential election. This will be the first election where votes can be cast from smart phones and laptops. A record turnout is expected.

There is much excitement as live results are being displayed all over the place. Twitter, television, apps and websites are all displaying the vote counts. It is a close race between the leading candidates until about 9 am when a third candidate starts to rapidly close the gap. He was an unknown independent that had suspected ties to multiple terrorist organizations. There was outrage when he got on to the ballot, but it had quickly died down when he put forth no campaign effort.

By 11 am the independent was predicted to win, and the software called it for him at 3:22 pm.

At 4 the CEO of the software maker was being interviewed on CNN. There were accusations of everything from bribery to bugs to hackers being responsible for the results. Demands were made for audits and recounts. Some were even asking for the data to be made publicly available. The CEO calmly explained that there could be no audit or recount. The system was encrypted end to end and all the votes were cryptographically anonymized.

The interviewer was stunned and sat there in silence. When he eventually spoke, he said "We just elected a terrorist as the President of the United States."

Given the subject matter (Follow My Vote in mind) I wonder if this could possibly be 'our' tonyk.

I've been wondering by the way, on this forum does the use of an ampersand, e.g. [email protected]' actually notify the forum member?

(This post was an absolute pig to compose on my phone! Sorry if it's gone wrong somewhere!)

Well, I do not know about the rest of this stuff but at least they can extend the plot in season 2 with melodramatic drama twist - how his one-eyed should be wife went through eye addition surgery and stuff...  ;D


PS
Doesn't ampersand mean & ?

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

Also Hadrian this is totally irresponsible behavior on you part...talking about movie plots when the whole community is absolute concerned that BM

 has registered a company Cripto+Stuff+And+Inxs Inc with the total and obvious purpose of abandoning BTS ... and you dare talk about movie plots! ?

Shame on you!

No amount of drama in the world of BitShares can dissuade me from courting the attention of my beloved tonyk. Not even if the timing of such behavior is seen by the entire community as inappropriate.

Just you remember, not only did I go through eye addition surgery, I had my antenna sawn off JUST TO PLEASE YOU!

Anyway, let's all head back to the 'What the fuck is this shit?! Cryptonomex blah blah blah' thread...
