Repping #nerdlife for as long as he can remember, Bryan Micon is a human male currently residing on earth. As a Bitcoin Baron, professional poker player, husband, and father of one, Micon has committed himself to changing the game while vowing never to work for the man.
A fun filled adventure as usual. Don’t really remember any of it. Seemed like it had it’s moments. All I can think about is the $2.2M GTD $27 multi-entry GPP on DraftKings. Going to make some lineups. Enjoy the show!
And I tweeted about it and made a blog post. Like a motherfucking powdered-food eating futurist boss. Everyone wants to know about the the taste & consistency, then see some pix. So I’ll just blast. The taste I can best describe as light pancake batter with a hint of vanilla. The texture is as if you had a smoothie made with chaulk. It kind of tastes like a Carnation instant breakfast that you didn’t mix too well, or ground up a bunch of chaulk and tossed that in after. It’s really not that bad, not that good, just kind of “meh I’ll drink this shit so I don’t die” sort of flavor. It really fits the product IMO. I had the shit for breakfast, maybe 9am PST and it’s now 2pm PST and I feel like it’s almost time for lunch. I was fairly full after drinking my breakfast, and felt like a normal human when I took my little lady to the park. Going to have one of these on Sunday’s during my poker-DFS frenzy, when I’d prefer not to be bothered with feeding myself, and maybe occasionally late at night when I also don’t want to be bothered with food preparation. Not going “100% Soylent” because that sounds retarded, and I don’t know why if I buy 21 servings worth of it anyone would think I’m going to stop eating. It’s not a cult like Choice Center, it’s just some science to eat. Well, maybe a bit cult-ish, I did feed one to my wife, she claimed the flavor was “vanilla” and said she felt full a few minutes after taking one down. Then I fed a little to the baby, and she didn’t really dig it. 2/3 isn’t that bad, and 2/2 adults.
Was cool to have on Cody, and the Peacekeeper app really got me thinking:
In a nutshell, what if all of your neighbors had the same app on their phone (this could eventually become a protocol IMO) and when there was a fire you hit the “fire!” button and all your neighbors rush to your aid? Also, there is a medical button. And an “intruder” button. Decentralized emergency response. Cool idea, cool guy. Also some pretty cool 19 yr old kid whose name escapes me talks to me for a half hour or so about life and working and shit. Take a listen below!
The brilliantly strong reporter goes by the name of Charlo Greene. (@Charlo_Greene on the tweeter machine) And says her real name during the video but IMO not important. What is important is her razor-sharp response to the ill-conceived notion of a “war on drugs.” She even demonstrates how a reporter speaking in “reporter voice” aids the fear-mongering. Trying to get her on DonkDown radio, but what “Charlo” left us is more than enough. Cheering hard for this one.
Of course I’m about to drop a grip of affiliate links. You know your boy is on that digi-grind for crypto. But, unlike most assholes out there on the internet, I only drop links to places I play myself. So let’s run down what’s what on 9/19/2014. First off I’m most interested in Gambit right now. Bitcoin OFC, Yatzy, Backgammon, Bitnopoly, and other board game favorites for bitcoin. Pretty fucking cool IMO, and the OFC variant has some donks firing at all bankroll levels. Second off Nitrogen sports made big bitcoin gambling news when they dropped poker yesterday. While you may be thinking “Don’t Tell ‘em about Nitrogen Micon! SealsWithClubs 4 Lyfe & YOLO, IMO!” That’s not how I roll. I call ‘em like I see ‘em, and I fire sports at Nitrogen sometimes and recently tested their poker product. I don’t like the pre-flop rake, and the software isn’t a slick as the SwC clients, but in a very “bitcoin Bodog” kind of way I imagine there will occasionally be a big sports donk firing off in poker over there from time to time. As a player I’m going to keep watch. I trust Nitrogen, and there aren’t many other bitcoin gambling sites I can say that about, so credit where credit is due. Also, because it’s the weekend, I’m obviously firing big on DraftKings and maybe a few lineups on FanDuel as well.
Big thanks to Weev for coming on the show. @rabite on twitter (slave name Andrew Auernheimer) came on DonkDown radio from Beirut, Lebanon to announce he has left the United States. This comes after his appeal period expired for the bullshit AT&T charges he beat. He also ranted about Jews & Niggers for about 45 straight minutes, and I wouldn’t expect any less of Weev. Yes, it’s shocking! It’s also a brilliant example of freedom of speech. He may be trolling you. He may not be. But he should be allowed to say it, that’s for damn sure. And I’ll broadcast Weev’s message loud – because he may sound crazy – but baked in that crazy is a grip of logic. May not be the same line you take, may not be the same line I take, but it does get me thinking.Wired said your online freedom depended on him – and they don’t overstate shit. So buckle up and take a listen. Then turn the shit off when Allen Kessler comes on. And YOLO, get your shit together son. Shout to MikeT for another platinum hit.
Breathin' so free on non-extradition soil now. Breakup with USA is done now.
Yup, you are going to have to be into bitcoin like a boss to get all of this:
And if you don’t, sorry, this post is not for you. Just scroll down, hit one of the DFS affiliate links, and be on your way. But, if you are a bitcoin nerd (my audience has a wide range) then buckle up, because I can’t stop thinking about this. So the crazy inventor guy, @rdbell on the tweeter, the “lone nut” if you will, deserves some first followers. For those that haven’t been following the secure bitcoin hardware wallet space, Trezor is the first entry of any significance. I trust the developers (very early bitcoin fanatics) and believe this type of technology furthers bitcoin adoption – most bitcoin barons I speak to are very concerned with security of their private keys. Many ways exist to securely store a string of characters, and you will often trade convenience for safety. Ok so the above video displays a proof of concept, not a product ready to ship. IMO you could take this in a few different directions. First, what if you could plug a Trezor into this thing that would be 1x Pi, 1x camera, and 1x screen, all in some cool small form factor? IMO making a Trezor spendable would be tits+. I can tell @rdbell is concerned with having one dedicated device do all the signing, so why not use a Trezor? I understand the desire to keep a dedicated device for signing – to create an airgap between the evil internets and your precious private keys – but IMO the 2x Pi concept is a little goofy. IMO make a 1x Pi device that could optionally work with the Trezor. Many users will want a trusted hardware bitcoin wallet, but won’t be so nitty as to need a separate device for signing. Do whatever the Trezor does to keep keys safe, then add a screen and camera to it. If the project that is Bitcoin continues to grow, there will be a large demand for a secure, small, sexy-looking, spendable hardware bitcoin wallet. I can’t stop thinking about it.
