“What Micon Is Firing On”

By |September 19th, 2014|stories|0 Comments

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.

Weev Came On DonkDown Radio | Andrew Auernheimer Announces He Left USA For Lebanon

By |September 17th, 2014|cold call show, radio, stories|0 Comments

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.

Hail Victory:

Tomorrow on DonkDown Radio: Very Special Guest “Weev” aka Andrew Auernheimer

By |September 16th, 2014|stories|0 Comments

If you haven’t heard about Weev, you will within a few week of “The Hacker Wars” being released. Maybe you need to see his brilliant HuffPo before going to jail for not-hacking AT&T. Or Maybe you need to see his brilliant HuffPo after his bullshit conviction was overturned. Did you hear that Wired said your online freedom depended on his trial. Ok, Wired has become a bit sensationalist in recent years. Cnet reports that Weev billed the US Government for ~$13M USD in bitcoin. Weev is president of the GNAA. He founded Goatse Security. He’s fucking awesome, and he’ll be on the show tomorrow. Opening with This YTCracker-Ishe:

Some Nerdy Bitcoin Shit: BitSmart Bitcoin Hardware Wallet

By |September 15th, 2014|stories|0 Comments

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.

$70M More Flows Into FanDuel. DFS Is Getting Bananas!

By |September 13th, 2014|stories|0 Comments

Daily Fantasy Sports. DFS. It’s been taking up a lot of my office time. I can’t help but apply data analysis to a game with huge variance that has a recently legalized exploding gambling market. FanDuel just took $70M in Series D funding to the face, following in the footsteps of the $70M+ funded DraftKings. (That $41M headshot round of funding you heard about was AFTER the first $30M went in. Holy shit, maybe Andrew Wiggins was right to sell DraftDay and start firing huge as a player on DK & FD)

Joby Weeks & Objectivist Girl | DonkDown Radio

By |September 10th, 2014|cold call show, radio, stories|0 Comments

DonkDown radio was once again broadcast to the adoring public! Objectivist Girl came on and explained how they are hacking politics up in New Hampshire and trolling republicans. Also some no-touch polyamory. Want to have her back on to get into that more. In a rare double-dose of high quality guests, Joby Weeks was also on the show to discuss a wide range of topics from grid-freeing solar energy & something about ingesting all of the 8 essential sugars needed to live healthy and maybe cure some AIDS. With great claims comes great proof, so today’s show is sending me on a research frenzy. Enjoy!
