thimbronion: shinohai: I look forward to the many trans CEOs that this will result in.
thimbronion: Or, board members I guess.
shinohai: It will be interesting to see play out at any rate. Will they suicide when profits start tanking ?
verisimilitude: Don't they commit suicide anyway, shinohai?
shinohai: verisimilitude: Unfortunately not at a rate fast enough to reduce new influx of wannabes.

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-12-01#1025630 << was called 'рабоче-крестьянское происхождение'(tm)(r) in the earlier sovok. it's lulzy, but could say at least is explicit. in contrast to the ~earlier~ 'you gotta go to harvard or yale to sit in this sinecure; and if you want to be on 3+ boards, better have ancestors who sailed on the mayflower'

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-12-01#1025633 << lol, what 'profits'. usg will keep on 'money printer go BRRRR!' and send printola by the wheelbarrow to these same TBTF corps.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-12-01 09:29:50 shinohai: It will be interesting to see play out at any rate. Will they suicide when profits start tanking ?
asciilifeform: presiding over the corp end of this process does not require a brain. only 'political reliability'.
asciilifeform: hence the rewritten job qual reqs.
asciilifeform: take e.g. crapple co. what intellectual depths for the ceo ? to decide which component of the ipnoje is to be removed next, to the applause of 1e7 idjits eager to still buy the N+1th model ? (already gone -- headphone orifice; finger lock. remains to be removed: screen, battery, cpu...)
BingoBoingo: Seems pretty obvious that the next thing to go is celular telephony even in it's present, profoundly rotten state.
adlai: forget the phablet, just buy an Apple Genius instead
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: imho quite opposite. i agree w/ orlol : the pnoje grid will be ~last~ to go. will outlast e.g. regular food & water supply. simply because is the backbone of the zombification rituals.
BingoBoingo: Sure, the data thing will persist. The whole phone numbers thing... I suspect not.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: will be pushed to the max. how else to mandate that erry convo b/w 2 talkers includes a nsa listener.
asciilifeform: whether old-style 'phone #' convention , or 'aol nick', or similar, is less interesting.
BingoBoingo: Disappearance of the phone number thing would be worth at least a couple chuckles
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the old-style circuit-switched telco grid already mostly gone. all that remains is the user-side convention.
BingoBoingo: And its days seem numbered
asciilifeform: (which is why sometimes cannot tell heads from tails over a cellpnoje -- yer going' through 3+ lossy compression layers)
asciilifeform recalls a job where had isdn desk phone, on usg-dod cleartext net, and when talking to similar ones, how unusual was the 'can fucking make out each word! like in 1980s orcistan!!'
BingoBoingo: lol

asciilifeform: RIP.
BingoBoingo: In other news, prospects for when you can get some beach time seem to be looking closer. The local public health derps started finding more "cases", so negotiations to buy the Russian jab so the government can declare "mission accomplished" are heating up.
BingoBoingo: Still at well under 100 dead bodies that happen to have the doom virus here
