megal0dan asked: What if there was a new eBay like auction site that only took payments in bitcoins? Like the Silk Road except for legal things instead of drugs. Surely people would use it because there'd be no shitty 3.5% PayPal charge. You'd have to get around the fluctuating bitcoin price but you could maybe do that by bidding in dollars and then at the end you'd send whatever the equivalent worth was in bitcoins instead. What do you think?
I think what is more likely to happen is that Amazon and eBay just accept bitcoin.
Also, a site that functions with bitcoins being a primary or major form of payment would still take a fee because there are still costs in running a site and processing transactions and payments.
I think Etsy already takes bitcoins and Etsy is like an arts & crafts version of ebay.
While Googling more info on BitCoins I came across this word; Technotarians. Technotarians means ‘technological libertarians’. I found this word while reading on Launch and here’s what they had to say:
We made this term up to describe the “good people” of the internet who believe in the fundamental rights of individuals to be free, have free speech, fight hypocrisy and stand behind logic, technology and science over religion, political structure and tradition. These are the people who build and support things like Wikileaks, Anonymous, Linux and Wikipedia. They think that people can, and should, govern themselves. They are against external forms of control such as DRM, laws that are bought and sold by lobbyists, and religions like Scientology. They include splinter groups that enforce these ideals in the form of hacktivism, such as the takedown of the Sony Playstation Network after Sony tried to prosecute a hacker for unlocking its console.
I’m now going to incorporate this into my lexicon and I think y’all should do the same.
at what point will college wither away?
As soon as businesses start to accept internet/youtube based training as the norm.
“And where did you study economics?”
“Check my youtube history. I have 11,000 hours of viewed videos.”
i think the internet is wasted on white people
The internet is waste on humanity.
Like I always say, “the internet eventually breaks everything that it once fixed.”
