JP Morgan patents 'bitcoin' Dec 11, 13, 9:56 a.m.
Surprise! that didnt take long.
My list of 'wtf' is too long on this, but
They filed for this back in august. back when no one could have had any real idea of the impact of any cryptocurrency. So they wanted to patent something they really had no clue about.
The fact that anyone would shrug a shoulder when a major bank, specifically one of the most corrupt there is, now probably half owned by China or some other country, comes out with their 'own' digital currency and payment system, is beyond me.
There is a big 'yeah, ok' when it comes to this because we are talking about a century+ old bank that loves stealing and laundering money. No way will this 'new' currency be secure to the end consumer, because that would defeat the entire montra of any banking system.
And the fact that they felt the need to patent something like this, proves to me that our govt, and the banking systems have no clue what cryptocurrency is even about.
Bitcoin, and other cryptos are used so they almost self police, thus, taking OUT the middleman banks. I guess they didnt read about how it works.
BC is worth what its worth now because of consumers, not banks. I hope someone comes to their senses and tells them they cant patent anything like this.

CD Rippin' Good Times Dec 10, 13, 10:44 p.m.
Just slowly rippin' my cd's, again. One of those rip'd 'em over the years at different crap qualities and decided to one by one nuke the old 'n replace with the fresh at 320. Revisiting lots of choice choons from days past. Kinda super fun.

Can't remember a book. Dec 10, 13, 9:41 a.m.
I need some help. There was a book that was just released this year. It interviewed creative professionals who started their own business. It was a 2-colour print and came in a digital format as well. I think it may have been crowd funded.
For the life of me I can't remember it's name. Does anyone know which book this is?
Canada’s 150th Birthday Logo Dec 10, 13, 6:55 a.m.
It shames me to share this type of stuff to the world but this is how the beaucrats in Ottawa think Canada's 150th birthday should be captured in a logo.
the story from the CBC is here:
Unlike the Centennial logo designed by Stuart Ash this thing reeks of amateurism and a lack of vision. Considering what maybe possible with the designers we do have it boggles the mind why they would go this way. I suspect the mandate was not to spend a lot of taxpayers' money to get this done in the name of 'austerity' but this is the opposite end of that argument. We'd be better off not spending a dime and dumping this thing altogether!
I will be sending a stern letter to my MP voicing my objection to this.
