You broke the Internet



Now let's build a GNU one



Details: Yellow is for projects in development while green is for those that are available. Red illustrates brands that lose their monopoly condition once the respective layers are fully operational whereas light red indicates faulty technologies that we must replace.

Meet Vitalik Buterin, the 20-Year-Old Who Is Decentralizing Everything - Shareable



"Let’s talk about net neutrality and Internet service providers — that example is fun. Right now, all Internet traffic flows through a few ISPs. They overcharge, they don’t really innovate, and they give preferential treatment to big business. For about 10 years, there has been the alternative idea of mesh networking, where we get rid of ISPs and, instead, have Internet messages relayed directly — person-to-person, laptop-to-phone-to-laptop. Theoretically, this completely solves the problems caused by ISPs. So, why hasn’t it succeeded?

The reason is that inside of one city, it works fine; but when you need to send a message, say, from Toronto to Sydney, that’s 15,000 kilometers, or 45,000 cell phone and laptop hops, even with optimal hardware. Even that assumes there are nodes going all along the ocean. It’s obviously far too slow and expensive. We need large, undersea cables and professional infrastructure for international routing. So, here’s the new solution: incentivized mesh networking. Anyone can join the network as a node. Anyone can charge for being a relay node for other people’s messages. And if I want to send a request to some server, I run a graph-search algorithm to find the shortest, cheapest path. So, if you pay a few microcents per kilobyte, your messages get transferred. If you have a phone, you can participate in the network and get a few cents an hour. Large companies can also participate. I could start a company whose sole purpose is to run and maintain a single wire going from Vancouver to Melbourne and collect fees off that. If my wire is the fastest, cheapest way to get messages over, people will use it. If I filter traffic from Wikileaks, then Wikileaks users can just use someone else’s wire instead.

The result is maximum modularity, minimum barrier to entry, an optimal marketplace. This allows you to incorporate satellites, undersea cables, intercity cables, phones, and more all into one network. That’s how we fix the Internet’s issues of monopoly and net neutrality."

Meet Vitalik Buterin, the 20-Year-Old Who Is Decentralizing Everything

Credit: Lightcoin on Ethereum.org. Just before last New Year’s, 19-year-old Vitalik Buterin, a Canadian college dropout and Bitcoin enthusiast, had an idea. By the end of last week, that idea had attracted more than $5 million in the first week of its pre-sale — a new kind of crowdfunding that crypto-currency makes possible. Not bad, especially considering that nobody knows whether the idea will really work.

Presentation of the Alexandria project. A block-chain media-library whose prototype actually works. The P2P player supports video, sound, images and pdf-text and works, though the front-end still is rather much under development.

I dont know that much about the dangers and hustles of letting

Also it would be cool if people who make film, music, drawings or art-stuff would try it out. Just write me and I will help with some Florin-coins, and advice.

Here's the video. One of my drawings appears about 3 minutes in.

#Video: The Future of #Money


What happens when the way we buy, sell and pay for things changes, perhaps even removing the need for banks or currency exchange bureaus? That's the radical promise of a world powered by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

We're not there yet, but in this sparky talk, digital currency researcher Neha Narula describes the collective fiction of money — and paints a picture of a very different looking future.

Duration: 16m 17s

Ethereum Must Drop Turing Completeness, Or It Will Fail



Great talk by Meredith tonight at the Ethereum Meetup in Munich (as announced a few posts back) that dived deep into certain aspects of blockchain protocols.



"The single one element you get from the blockchain you don't get from other tools is consensus. If you don't need consensus, you don't need a blockchain!"

In Bitcoin, the consensus is about transactions. Also its transaction language is probably context-free, but it's very cautiously and conservatively implemented. Its subset is probably regular.


In Ethereum, consensus is about .. well, anything. Its transaction language is deliberately Turing-complete, and about as readable as any other programming language.


Cryptographic Trust -- But of what?
Would you trust this contract?
How about now that I signed it?
Then why did anyone sign on with TheDAO?

How did TheDAO hack happen? http://hackingdistributed.com/2016/06/18/analysis-of-the-dao-exploit/

How do we stop this from happening again?
You don't.
Unless you're willing to listen to her: "No More Turing Complete Input Languages!"
Rice's Theorem: For any non-trivial property of partial functions, no general and effective method can decide whether an algorithm computes a partial function with that property.
Thus, Ethereum should drop its Turing-complete language, or things like TheDAO hack will happen again and again!
