Finally came up with a second chapter for 'Social Contagion'.
Slight mention and use of #left4dead. (But it's more about the current pandemic.)

Looking at one of my first #writing projects because I'm re-writing it. Was definitely struck with pure inspiration when I wrote it. But there also so much I would discard or revise entirely.

Hi !

Maybe it is a mistake of the RTM translation, but currencies with a finite monetary mass are no debt currencies, they are just non-libre currencies.

- they are issued by a small group of humans: miners, founders of the currency, etc. This doesn't respect the spatial symmetry principle.

- as time passes, the currency becomes always less available for users (be it because of owners greed or because of units loss). This is contrary to the time symmetry principle.

"debt" currencies refer to currencies for which units are issued through credit, such as euros, dollars, etc. They are one type of non-libre currencies.

All non-libre currencies lead to inequalities, and eventually structural crisis of the currency system.

Okay. I see. I was referencing this chapter when I was writing the blog.

The book doesn't yet have a glossary for a quick reference of definitions. So in the example, Bitcoin wouldn't necessarily be a debt currency, in an abstract use of the term. But it would share the characteristics and consequences of temporal and spatial asymmetry with debt-currencies?

BTC issuance is based on the imaginary model of rare metals : easy to issue in the beginning, more difficult to find with time, and with a fixed quantity.

We know for sure that rare metals currencies lead to crisis, take 1929 for example, while having been extracted and used as currencies since 3000+ years. BTC extraction is reduced to 150 years, no surprise it will go through structural crisis due to issuance model (not even considering the energy consumption).

To me, debt currency is _better_ than fixed monetary mass like BTC or gold : at least, _some_ humans can decide to create more money when the new generation needs it.

The problem is that only _some_ humans can decide it. They decide what are the main values for this generation. With libre currency, _all_ members create the currency at the same rate and can decide what is value and what is not.

Blog has a small update now thanks to some clarifying ITT.

Updating the backpage of Mnemosyne's Heretic. It used to have a Monero address for donations, but the new page will have Ğ1 instead. This is how it looks so far. Not sure if I should do more or keep it simple.

Going to give myself a challenge: write at least one short story per month. A bit hard that politics is still a hot topic, floating to the top of my tl.

Want to re-do an old short story I wrote, but I'm not feeling the flow for it.


Likho friendica
Erotic, romantic, or political fiction seems extremely popular. The last I rather not touch, but the first two are tempting sometimes.

"Damn it, youtube-dl got taken off Github!" I shook my fist at the screen.

"Wow, dude, chill. Just open the video normally and use Audacity to record the audio."

Wrote for #kinktober2020 - the weird thing is that I wrote silly #genfic

It's #fanfic but you don't have to know about the fandom. It's more about smartphones and surveillance. ^^
