aehm, .. doge?

Are you saying Memes by nature are not long-term sustainable?

I would agree with that observation

I voted yes, but think we should mainly focus on the .p2p TLD so that it  the .p2p extension gains a value of its own like a .com extension

I agree, Get the Infrastructure in place for 'folks to start creating web page content

And who knows what people will call it once 'folks start to get Onboard the "New Internet"

Wikipedia lists 250 foods that are named after real life people:

Once we explain to the World that this is a "new internet", That "New Internet" Must have a NAME

"TOAST" or whatever

Are we witnessing the birthing of One such meme ?


Technical Support / Is there Ubuntu wallet available for BTSX?

Hey guys, is there a secure linux wallet out there that I can compile? Where might I go to find it?

Thanks in advance!

Part of a complete breakfast....

APPLE changed the face of computing
JAVA changed the face of the internet
TOAST will (holy cow, the implications!)

Could we really be onto something?

Raise your hand if you are serious about liking the idea of Toast naming his DAC TOAST [hand raised]

General Discussion / Namespace Registration is still Badly Needed!
« on: July 26, 2014, 04:47:11 pm »
The way I understand the current situation, each release of a new blockchain that honors AGS/PTS social contract will be wide open for a race to register your name/user id before someone usurper either fraudulently or innocently squats on your hard earned reputation. I can see this causing much confusion down the road when there are dozens or hundreds of active, useful, and valuable blockchains being utilized by the world's population, and many opportunists poised and ready to try and trade on others names.

I heard that the original Keyhotee founders would have their names automatically registered in every genesis block, which is a great idea. However,  I am wondering if those 200 (or however many) folks would agree that they are probably not the only people that deserve, and will deserve in the future, the option to protect their reputations from slander, fraud, libel, etc.

My question, and mind you I have zero technical skills whatsoever, Is whether it would be possible to create a DPOS chain specifically for namespace registration, that might act as a more "centralized" place to maintain the integrity of one's online reputation? Perhaps it could be designed so that account registration for future DPOS chains could have the option to somehow reference or link to this Namespace chain as an alternative to creating a new ID? I know there has to be some economic incentive in order to convince delegates to participate on the back end, and I suppose it would be a challenge to come up with a convincing argument that names should all be registered on one chain, so is there another solution?

Perhaps Bitshares X will simply become the go to chain for all future Namespace ID references? Or maybe Bitshares DNS could facilitate User ID as well as DNS auctions? Either way, would it be possible for other DPOS chains using the BTS toolkit to somehow link or reference these chains?

Follow up question:  Is the bit asset prediction market enabled? or is that still something that will require a hard fork?

Can you guys tell us what project you are talking about? Or is it a secret....?

Hooray! This is huge, you guys!

I didn't see, or must have missed any announcement that DACS unlimited had launched the official BTSX chain (non test net).
Has that happened? I see a surge in trading on BTER, so is it safe to buy in without a chance of a reset?

Yeah... I would love to refine it.  I think what we have discovered is that attempting to have an open 'just-in-time' conversation with the community leads to confusion because no one can follow it all (except the insiders).   

On the other hand the confusion and debate has refined our thinking and taught us a lot.  So our premise for development (extreme openness) is one that needs to be tempered with setting the expectation. 

The other extreme is the apple approach, extreme secretiveness and surprise launches.   

I think we are growing as a team and we will figure this all out.  This is mostly just growing pains as I have never run anything like this before.

Pains are a good sign  :). My feeling is that there are SO many people committed to making this happen, that probability of any large-scale failure is exceedingly small. I believe you are correct that we are in some sort of truly uncharted territory, and I definitely commend you for keeping your cool. Heady stuff BM.

This is one of the most concise and well referenced concerns about Invictus I have EVER seen posted....
 +5% well done solaaire

This one really hits home. And it appears that everyone agrees, yes?
You guys, PLEASE, take these concerns to heart.

We all believe your ideas and talents hold SO much potential, but so far your public relations have been borderline disasterous I believe IT IS a testament to the strength and forgiveness of this community that some of your blunders have not resulted in greater calamity. I am not even talking about missed deadlines (The reasons for the delays have largely been justifiable,  and most of us, even if we don't agree with every developmental decision you've made, are trusting of your ability to soundly execute your plans.) What I am referring to is a OPENLY apparent lack of Public Relations management.

I am not looking to place blame, because I am not privy to the inner workings of your crew. But you MUST find a solution! And for heavens sake, many, many companies have great PR. You guys CAN DO THIS. But first, you must RECOGNIZE that is your weakness!

Bytemaster, you mentioned in last Saturdays mumble chat that you are aware of a personal need to improve your interpersonal relationship skills. That is totally fine! Many of us have weaknesses far more embarrassing or shameful! But your company WILL SUFFER if you do not figure out a way to begin solving this problem immediately. And I think I speak for the majority when I say that IF you DO find a solution to this weakness, we may all be sitting on an Absolute GOLDMINE, both personally and collectively, that could unlock the potential for an ENTIRELY NEW ECONOMY!
Step up, and figure this out! Nobody doubts that you are capable!

We are actively working on that and we have recognized it for a long time.   Finding the right people is the biggest challenge as there isn't exactly a supermarket around where we can just throw them on the cart.   Even hiring a professional PR firm is a challenge because defining what we are is a huge challenge.

I can define what I am and what I do, but we have many different components that each need to be uniquely defined: - organization of members + companies.
I3 LTD, .P2P, etc... each DAC has its own branding issues.

I have stepped back from the PR job and have tasked Gregory, Brian, Stan, Arlen to focus entirely on how to improve that.

I have sympathy, because of the transparent and semi-permeable nature of your operation, for your challenge around creating definitions and setting boundaries.

Bytemaster, you are clearly a great architect. The mind of an architect will formulate, refine, and re-define the boundaries and definitions within a field of focus until an adequate model for the channeling of the "strong force" within that particular domain. For a building designer, the force is gravity. For a software engineer, mathematics as expressed through a programming language. I would suggest that, to some extent, social outreach can be usefully contemplated through using  a similar rubric. People's expectations must be channeled.

A model is needed. By utilizing open-forum type discussions, WITHOUT a framework of clearly defined operational parameters, you leave yourselves vulnerable to unanticipated "attack vectors". This is simply the "strong force" of the prevailing social milieu going all wonky and amok because it does not have the proper outlet. While it is true that most people are to some extent irrational, it could perhaps be equally true that most people crave logic, order, and the "appearance" of success, and will gravitate toward these things.

The process of manifestation, from idea to realization, is often riddled with the outward appearance of indecision, loss, failure, hesitation, etc., along the way. Many times these things may "appear-to-be-true", when in REALITY the process IS in fact "on the right track" and will eventually lead to success. Unnecessarily exposing the community, and by extension the public, to the wrong parts of the process seems to cause mostly confusion, fear, and doubt.

Maybe a good place to start would be to decide which parts of your creative process you will bring before the community, and which parts you will withhold for further gestation, refinement, and tempering. This can be extremely empowering, as you will In fact BE more confident when approaching the community because you have taken the time to "noodle it over" before running excitedly to the peanut gallery with "this amazing new idea" you have . I don't mean to be crass, but I suppose the aforementioned suggestion is a reflection upon Stan's PTS announcements, etc.
(the specific topic of this thread)

I have heard many, MANY, times from members of this community the desire for more organization within the forums and website. Obviously doing things like making important announcements at the bottom of weeks old forums is patently absurd. Rather than assuming that the people you are trying to reach are willing to make a huge effort to keep up with the program, it might be wiser to assume that most people want a simple and direct way to review their confidence in their investment. I have heard the expression that "a strong product sells itself". This may be true in a world where you have exclusive and patented rights to a product, but in the world of open source you must have a strong and organized PR. You clearly know a great deal about organization when it comes to your particular field, so perhaps simply applying that skill to the field of PR might be a huge step.  :)
