Back to Basics

zen1

It’s been a long time since my last post. Too long. My life has become complex – perhaps overly so. This used to be a Bitcoin blog, and to some degree it probably still is. Bitcoin will likely always hold a special place in my life and I still thoroughly believe in the concept and technology… But it’s changed. [Read more…]

Coinbase Excludes Half Their User Base. Again.

Coinbase___Exchange

I will admit, I am far too idealistic. It’s not realistic to expect a company to ignore regulation within their industry. It’s not realistic to expect perfect availability, openness, freedom or anonymity from a Bitcoin exchange. In reality, our government is to blame for creating the insane compliance landscape Coinbase must conform to – but the ideologue in my head will have none of that. Why? Because there’s also a second pattern at play here that’s becoming all too common from Coinbase. [Read more…]

Tapeke: Bitcoin Accounting for Non-Accountants

tapeke_logo

I’ve never been a particularly good accountant. It’s not to say that I’m not capable of the math or that I don’t understand double-entry bookkeeping, it’s more that I really don’t want to. As much as I can get behind a nice sexy visualization of some good data, I just can’t get excited by budgets. Services like Mint are made for people like me, but a noteworthy lack of such services is a big part of Bitcoin’s well-known usability problem. If Tapeke¬†gets their way, that won’t be the case for long. [Read more…]

Bitcoin GitHub History Visualized.
Now With 700% More Dots!

gource

A few years back I found this really cool program called “Gource” that renders visualizations of the logs of popular source control software like Git. I used Gource to visualize the Bitcoin GitHub repository, set it to a catchy tune and for some reason it immediately took off. It’s become a tradition now, something I try to do at least once a year – after I’d done a few of them I started adding the occasional tweak. Today’s entry is no different. [Read more…]

Is Bitcoin Teaching Us to Dream Again?

NASA-Apollo8-Dec24-Earthrise

People forget, but in the 60s when NASA was doing its best to put a man on the moon, we had ulterior motives. The cold war was raging and there’s a reason all the rockets looked like missiles. Thankfully, the warmongers did not win the day and instead of orbital nuclear platforms we ended up with a plethora of technologies that make the world smaller and borders less meaningful. We also got (in this author’s opinion) the most important picture ever taken. [Read more…]
