hey where's station manager ken's sidekick and foil andy's profile?

You "service" PC? Oy, Ken, I know you are always on the lookout for ways to raise money, but...

I'm still waiting for my forever stamp payout.

Don't use our donations to buy bitcoin.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:05pm G:

By the time Ken hears about it, it's jumped the shark :)
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:05pm Nick the Bard:

Lets just hire someone to goldfarm for the show in World of Warcraft, it'd be the same thing really.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:06pm G:

Andy is well off in fiat currency. Just like Bill Gates.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:07pm Mutant:

I was actually just researching this same subject.
Avatar    Wed. 4/10/13 6:11pm steve:

i consider myself very tech savvy but, like Andy, i still dont understand how bitcoin relates to actual money which i can use to buy stuff. is it just like buying a share of stock?
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:11pm the glowing one:

The Bitcoins you have are REALLY yours, Andy.

So will WFMU accept bitcoins next marathon?
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:12pm Mutant:

It works the same as other markets. It is just numbers stored online somewhere. Same as your bank.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:12pm Caryn:

If, in the end, it turns out Andy is actually Yakamoto... well played, sir.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:13pm Droll:

There are several kinds of malware which do bitcoin mining on hijacked computers. The pros don't use their own computer resources to mine bitcoins, they steal time using bot-nets. The Russians love bitcoins to hide money and pay bribes. Given that, you decide for yourself how legitimate bitcoins are.
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Listening from afar tonight, talking poetry with the taxman (what a relief! If only I could integrate something so fun into every 7SD!)

But Bitcoins price is too high now--buy some once the price drops down; it will.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:18pm BadGuyZero:

Good evening, everyone!
Avatar    Wed. 4/10/13 6:20pm Dan B From Upstate:

So in essence it's a "foreign currency" that fluctuates compared to other forms of currency as often and as rapidly as a stock price can fluctuate?
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi BGZ!

"Magic: The Gathering"! That was a thing in the late 90s--cafeteria tables of those "involved" at school were covered in those cards.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:22pm Mutant:

Create a Dwolla account, use that to buy Bitcoins.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:22pm Nick the Bard:

MAGIC THE GATHERING IS NOT POKEMON! >:|

Pokemon came AFTER Magic the Gathering >:|

I'm ... I'm going to purposely misfile an album in the library now. Well, just move an album out of sequence. Yeh...
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:22pm the glowing one:

It's extremely difficult to "guess" new bitcoins with a mining program, because they need be verified by other bitcoin clients. It's intrinsicly safe so that you can't just create bitcoins in an instant, unless someone finds a weakness in the algorithm.

@Ken, you will need TOR.
Avatar    Wed. 4/10/13 6:23pm Dan B From Upstate:

I... um... still have a couple of Magic the Gathering cards. I'm just surprised Andy knows what it is. I mean... I was in 7th grade once, but I can't picture Andy ever having been in 7th grade.
Avatar    Wed. 4/10/13 6:23pm steve:

so is a bitcoin manifest as a file? how exactly do you own one?
Avatar    Wed. 4/10/13 6:23pm Mike Noble:

I think the silk road is part of "the dark web."

@Nick: NIMAL!! Not in MY Adopted Library!! NO vengeance through mis-filing of organizational systems!

(But, you may leave satiric Post-Its on the album--I'll give you that)
Avatar    Wed. 4/10/13 6:24pm Mike Noble:

I think I managed to stumble upon it while trying to buy bath salts for Ken. I had to use a TOR browser though.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:25pm the glowing one:

The bitcoin "bank" IS actually a large file (at the moment it's a few Gigabytes in size), every bitcoin user has a copy of this files. It contains all the transactions and mined bitcoins in it.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:25pm BadGuyZero:

You can tell Nick has exacted vengeance in the record library when Led Zeppelin III is filed in between Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II.

Ken, please use this new found power to purchase more bath salts and possible an illegal fire arm. Or maybe a bazooka.
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@BGZ: Well, so long as it's all within the L_ Z_ I_ family, I guess that would be satiric, and hence acceptable.
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:29pm common:

andy how are you not laughing?
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

HoJos: No NOs!

I heard some commentary on Bitcoin the other day and the gist was that if 2% of the worlds reserve dollars where converted to Bitcoin it could bring down the banks. Dollars are bubbles propped up by "Monetary Easing" - keep those printing presses running!!

Is this now the second or the third Andy prank call since his "last prank call ever."

Glad i got to witness his last prank call again.

From this Gawker article ( gawker.com... ):

"Getting to Silk Road is tricky. The URL seems made to be forgotten. But don't point your browser there yet. It's only accessible through the anonymizing network TOR, which requires a bit of technical skill to configure."
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:34pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Oh, man, this is turning out to be a "serious" 7SD.

Yakamoto / Kobayashi!

Kobayashi Maru?
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:36pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I guess this is what happens when the fatal flaw emerges well before the show even starts.

  Wed. 4/10/13 6:36pm tinkle bear:

it is worth pointing out that the problems the robot, so-to-speak, solves are problems that any money system *needs* to solve. 'mined' bitcoins are merely payments for accomplishing accounting tasks for the community.
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

The battle will be between those who want to give government total surveillance and control over all web activities, and those who don't want to.

There's a Duane Reade at Grove Street Station.

will wfmu accept bitcoins as a form of donation for the next marathon :)
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:45pm the glowing one:

@hamburger: I asked that, too. I'd really like to know.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:45pm Mutant:

I'm sure they will eventually.
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

They're very flexible, I'm sure that will be the case soon.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:48pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Bitcoins are like ideas on Seven Second Delay -- there are no more being made, and the old ones are just getting shuffled around.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:50pm the glowing one:

The bitcoin database has to be "forked" in order to cheat. And after the fork only those with the forked database will see the cheated bitcoins as valid. So it's practically impossible to cheat your way into getting bitcoins this way.
  Wed. 4/10/13 6:50pm Robert:

Maybe I'll sit Ken down with the Irminfolk and they can talk about their actual, physical coins.
Avatar Wed. 4/10/13 6:51pm the glowing one:

I really enjoyed this semi-serious episode. Ken should have asked more questions during the UCB shows.
