In response to my previous thread [1], Toast invited me to come hang out with the BitShares team for a week in real life.  bytemaster invited me to join the BitShares team, and I accepted.

I'm impressed with the team's potential, and things will only get better with me on board.  Despite recent market movements, great things are ahead for BitShares!

tonyk is a great guy with a deep care for the platform. His style is very blunt but I am pretty sure he is not trying to be rude. Personally I like his style even if i don't agree with all of his idea's.

I thought tonyk was being facetious, and I think he may actually have a great deal of respect for your contributions, maybe I am wrong
You are most certainly right ... For me, it sometimes is pretty difficult to identify him joking but I am pretty sure he doesn't really like to offend valuable members of the community .. (Disclaimer: I also once fell for his sarcasm - :) - and was writing a PM for clarification  )

The other difference of course is I have proposed far less non working 'improvements' on the market engine [and have tried to explain why his will not work; as well as why I think so...something that he feels is below him(aka explaining to the less gifted of us)] and the voting scheme but.... no one is perfect.

Tony, what "non working improvements" for the market engine are you talking about?

I proposed the need and method for getting price feeds into the system:
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=5704.0

I originally proposed the rule to use those feeds: "no shorting below median feed price" and I vigorously defended and argued for its implementation in multiple threads including here:
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=7816.0
You strongly argued against me on this rule in this same thread.  I think this rule is central and critical for bitUSD to work.  I don't think bitUSD works without using the price feed like this.  BitUSD could have crashed without implementation of this.

I argued that prioritizing shorts by collateral was better than prioritizing by paying the highest spread and I still think this is a true improvement.  And I discussed and defended why I feel that way when we talked here:
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=9512.msg123926#msg123926

Bytemaster went on to say that prioritization by interest rate paid as a yield to bitUSD holders could be an even further improvement but never said the original change didn't work or was wrong.  For what it's worth, it's still my personal preference to prioritize by collateral instead of interest rate paid as yield to bitUSD.

You obviously disagree with me on bitUSD mechanics but I also met you in Vegas and I would have been happy to talk about bitUSD but I think we were both too busy drinking.

I also think it's unfair to say I don't put in effort.  When I had a different idea for DNS incentives I wrote a full 8 page whitepaper describing it and it took time to write and you still say I don't put in effort.

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=6561.msg87104#msg87104

I also think people are misinterpreting me and calling me rude when I actually am just more busy than I want to be and I'm trying my best.

Agent86 will be joining our team... he was on the VOTE team originally, however with the new united BTS I don't know how he would fit in and thus new negotiations will have to come in... I hope he can get a delegate position.

I know Agent wanted a large up front stake and effectively centralized control around a solid team.    The combined BTS would not be able to grant him that... I haven't seen him speak up recently but will reach out to him.  I want him on the team.

I am ready to join the team for even a medium or small stake or my current stake... I have no coding experience, but how much coding A86 has done? [honest question]

We definitely need TonyK on the team in Virginia to vet ideas.

He doesn't need to come to Virginia, he can vet them right here, as they appear in real time.

:)

Other than damage control statements.... is there  any substance indeed, Stan?

Yeeh,
As bright as Agents86 is he puts me off with his 'I am so smart, I do not even have to explain anything to you, poor stupid souls attitude'.... even Dan being like 10x smarter does not mind explaining his thought to us.... but not Agent; he is so above it.... he is so full of himself ...
It is intelligence that drives the realization of needing to explain thoughts and ideas that may be processed differently depending on context especially ones with multi variables. Those that dont are usually lazy or really busy or dont have the interpersonal intelligence to understand it is needed. Everyone is smart in their own ways.

Sorry I haven't posted a lot lately, just wrapping up some things and getting ready to join the effort full time (and move to VA.)  I'm excited!

I can of course roll with changes.

Congrats drltc!  Hopefully we will meet soon.

Real happy to hear that!

Now arhag, you read this or this https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=9899.0
and apply also please!
We need someone that is
a) a great speaker
b) a great writer
c) understand all BitShares matter deeply
d) not Bytemaster (as he is busy leading, coding, conceptualizing)
e) possibly a good networker

Agent86 might fit these criteria. Would Agent86 have enough time besides the conceptual work to do content creation (wiki, videos) work? Otherwise arhag would be a GREAT fit here. He convinced one of the knowledgeable Ethereum guys here http://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/2e0q0a/bitshares_guy_here_sorry_we_caused_such_a_stir_we/ which was very impressive. 
But it all depends much on the funds available.... :-/
