_why would never write an article called 'setting up my own software programming company' or use the phrase 'Maybe it would’ve been easier and safer to just stick out the 9-5 and work my way up the corporate ladder in the hope that I got promoted enough to be comfortable after a while…'

Wouldn't the sheer number of coins involved make tumbling services almost useless. What is the volume that a single tumbler gets per day? If you put in tens of thousands of coins, and there are only a few dozen coins in the Tumblr that day, your coins are going to be most of what comes back.

Sure, if they were all stolen and tumbled at once. The descriptions of a cold storage "leak" suggest that if the loss was due to theft, it was a gradual over an extended period.

According to Sequoia's post, they are adding 1mm users/day. http://sequoiacapital.tumblr.com/post/77211282835/four-numbe...

The denials over Prism never squared with the size and capability of the system that were outlined in the documents, unless I'm missing something here. Is it not possible that the court-ordered data releases were just one small part of the Prism program, with MUSCULAR and others filling the data that could not be obtained through the legal system? Prism is just the query interface, which is not necessarily tied to one dataset.

I am a big fan of Put.io. This seems like a contender to replace it, although there is a long way to go. One of the wonderful things about Put.io is that it is so versatile. I use their Boxee app, Android App, iPad app, as well as the web version regularly. That's a lot of work to replicate.

Should definitely add Primer to the list. I've never seen another movie that uses scientific language that is not dumbed down -at all- for the audience.

I love the first half of the movie, because it shows a lot of what a real startup is like. It's incredible how they did the overlapping dialog to show the fast pace of thought. Adding it right now.

Are you crawling these sites yourself, or using the Bing API to get the index?

-----


I'll get into more detail with a blog post tomorrow, but I just used Yahoo/Bing. It was a 3 hr project, figured I didn't need to reinvent the wheel :)

Are they charging you for requests (over the initial allotment of 5,000 requests per month), if this is done via Bing Web Search API in the Azure Marketplace?

-----


iI felt the sameway . I just used various apis for unscatter.com you may want to see about getting access to the blekko api if you keep playing with it. iI use some of the slash tags they offer for some search views, it's real easy to work with.

Nope, this is all coming together in the next two weeks. Those Reallocators are madmen, and know how to get things done.

It'd be nice to have an audit trail of admin actions on HN somewhere.

Can we just take a moment and note that Kim Dotcom had two Mercedes ML63 AMGs seized in the raid. One had the license plate 'Guilty' and the other 'Mafia'. He knew what business he was in: working around the law to facilitate massive scale copyright infringement.

If we want this anti-SOPA sentiment to stick, we need to draw a line in the sand somewhere. Even on a free and open web there are going to be some people who are just plain-old criminals. I'd prefer the line to be somewhere between me & Kim.

These are inside jokes referring to his past activities with computer fraud and insider trading. He was a black hat hacker sentenced for 2yrs, when he got out he started a security company, due to his fame quickly got huge clients like Lufthansa (AFAIR) and so, and became a millionaire, this time legally.
