Cryptocurrencies
Monero Presents New Legal Framework In Defense Of Privacy Coins
Riccardo Spagni presented the result of more than a year's work. A whitepaper titled "Anti-Money Laundering Regulation of Privacy-Enabling Cryptocurrencies" has been published. The document was conceived as a new legal framework to protect confidential coins such as Monero, Zcash, Dash, Komodo, and others.
Tether Is Moving 1 Billion More USDT Coins From TRON To Ethereum Blockchain
The total supply of coins will not change. The company carried out the swap on September 15, coordinating its actions "with a third party". In recent weeks, this is the second such stablecoin transfer between blockchains — on August 20, the issuer also moved USDT 1 billion from Tron to Ethereum. Another piece of news about Tether: USDT capitalization exceeded $15 billion, having increased by $3 billion in just a month.
Projects and Updates
Kraken Receives Licence To Establish First U.S Digital Assets Bank
The Kraken Bitcoin exchange was the first in the United States to receive the status of a special purpose depository institution (SPDI), giving it the functions of a traditional financial institution. The corresponding application of the Californian company was approved by the Wyoming Banking Council. This will allow Kraken to opt-out of third-party vendors to perform certain banking functions on its own.
Official Ethereum Proof-of-Stake Algorithm Proposal Published
Ethereum Foundation Lead Developer Danny Ryan has published the official proposal EIP-2982, which suggests the launch of Ethereum 2.0 and the transition from the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to Proof-of-Stake. If approved by other leading developers, it will be possible to launch Serenity, Ethereum 2.0 phase zero. Within its framework, the Beacon Chain will be activated, which will use Proof-of-Stake.
Uniswap Provides All Its Users With $1.200
Leading decentralized exchange (DEX) Uniswap has released the UNI governance token. It was listed on the Binance exchange almost immediately. About 13000 Uniswap users have already requested tokens.
Regulations
New Draft Law Suggests The European Union Is Set To Regulate Cryptocurrencies
The European Commission proposed to establish a legal framework for cryptocurrencies, security tokens, and stablecoins by analogy with the requirements for traditional financial instruments. This is stated in the Cryptocurrency Asset Markets Bill. The bill proposes to treat cryptocurrency assets like any other financial instrument. According to the European Commission, this will provide legal clarity.
Digital Assets Recognized As Securities In Nigeria
The regulator clarified that cryptocurrencies offer public alternative investment opportunities. Digital assets can be used as a medium of exchange, settlement, and accumulation. In order to protect investors from risks and not violate the integrity of the market, crypto assets must be controlled on an equal basis with securities. The main task of regulation is not to discourage the development of new technologies, but to ensure fair market competition and adherence to ethical standards.
Hacking
Japanese Crypto Exchange Sues Binance for Role in $63 Million Bitcoin Hack
The Japanese company Fisco Cryptocurrency Exchange, Inc has filed a US lawsuit against Binance Holdings Ltd., accusing it of providing a service to launder cryptocurrency stolen from the Zaif exchange in 2018. Fisco acquired Zaif in 2018 shortly after the hack. Over $9 million in stolen assets could have been funneled through Binance. The company notes that analysts were able to track the movement of all stolen $63 million to one bitcoin address. Subsequently, 1,451.7 BTC were sent from it to Binance addresses.
New Virus Attacks Microsoft SQL Database Servers For Monero Mining
Tencent's cybersecurity division has discovered a new miner virus called MrbMiner. The tactics of the virus are quite simple — the botnet scans the available IP addresses in search of Microsoft SQL servers, and if it detects such, it tries to log in under the administrator account using a brute-force password. If successful, the virus downloads the assm.exe file, which implements a reboot mechanism and creates a special account for hackers to access the server. After that, MrbMiner downloads a miner for mining the anonymous cryptocurrency Monero (XMR).
Mass adoption
Bahamas Geared to Launch Central Bank Digital Currency
The Bahamas wants to be the first country in the world to roll out a government-backed virtual currency nationwide and announced they will launch a central bank-issued cryptocurrency (CBDC) in October. The digital currency, dubbed "sand dollar", is designed to increase the financial availability of remote islands within the archipelago state.
Alibaba On Track To Be The Largest Blockchain Patent Holder By End Of 2020
Computer giant IBM risks losing the title of the largest blockchain patent holder to the Chinese corporation Alibaba. Since the beginning of the year, Alibaba has published ten times more patents than its closest competitor, IBM. According to analysts, if the pace is maintained, the Chinese corporation will become the largest patent holder by the end of the year.
France Begins Central Bank Digital Currency Testing
Société Générale — one of the largest financial conglomerates in Europe — will test the central bank digital currency (CBDC) on the Tezos blockchain. The Bank of France, as a result of the selection of partners, chose the Forge blockchain platform to test CBDC for interbank settlements. As part of the experiment, the feasibility of digitizing financial securities and the possibility of settlements on them using CBDC will be studied. In addition to Nomadic Labs, several technology service providers and consultants will participate in the testing.
Kazakhstan Will Develop A Blockchain Service For Ensuring The Security Of Personal Data
It will allow citizens of the country to control the use of their personal data. The service is planned to be introduced by the end of this year.
People
Kiss Rock Group Member Is Ready To Buy Bitcoin
Gene Simmons supported Cameron Winklevoss's request to use bank accounts to buy Bitcoin and Ether. The co-founder of Gemini tweeted that people who do not have access to banking services find it difficult to become the owners of cryptocurrency and that they need to take advantage of the benefits. The musician commented as follows: "I will. I am." For this moment, the most common opinion on Twitter is that Simmons is already buying cryptocurrency and will continue to increase the amount of Bitcoin he owns.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 287 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • Day 141.4. DEA Licenses Being Stolen and Compromising Pharmacists? - YouTube
    • Day 140 back to the opium dome you can just kind of pick the top of it off
    • And take off and go ahead and get your opiates
    • So yeah I'm not saying the director of strategy Awan is the director of the opiate dome or not but
    • Again, why the DEA license?
    • And if there was an enforcement agency--let's say the DEA where
    • And let's say you had somebody a friend in the DEA business
    • Like let's say, Bruce Ohr, you could go around and see which licenses had expired, retired doctors who had retired, revoked, etc
    • If you had a common name like Wong or Awan, you could reuse those licenses much the same way that the employee numbers were reused in the PeopleSoft application
    • So basically, you just say, "hey I'm Albert Wong today, nd I am going to go in and visit let's say Lobel LaBelle"
    • The gal who is the executive director at this largest facility in the country for veterans the largest consumer of pain meds and different types of psych meds
    • And say, "look you're not complying--you're out of compliance with your EEO, 15-percent has to go to EEO, we're gonna lower the boom on you. We're gonna come down on you. We're gonna sue you."
    • And what's the natural reaction?
    • Well, "you have a list of people who I could buy through, small pharmacies, or whatever, small distributors?"
    • Oh yeah sure I've got a list right here : it's it's Omar Awan, you can buy from him
    • Or you can buy from Mark Lambert, he's on our list,
    • Or you can buy from Saipov, he's one of our truckers, you can you can you can get it from him,
    • Or Albert Wong, he's one of our local guys
    • You got to be one of these four though, otherwise we're coming down on you hard
    • We're gonna we're gonna lay it on you with lawsuits right
    • Now, there was just recently a case of this W E R T K I N [[WERTKIN]] I would think of it like a not like a wart on your face
    • And then a family like that would be a wart-kin
    • This is wart kin like work like wer t like beer wort, not like beer wort but like wart-kin
    • But he had 40 of these cases of whistleblower cases in health
    • Now, is that DEA? is that VA? is that VA where DEA meets VA? is that Health? is that HHS? We don't really know
    • But 40 whistleblower cases somehow he has, in San Francisco
    • I'm not saying it's McKesson McKesson McKesson I don't know who those cases are
    • But again, we don't know he's somehow in a private law firm has 40 government whistleblower cases
    • Now, we know there's a hundred 90 whistleblower cases here, with a guy named Stone, who's stonewalling in those cases
    • Again, this Senate is stonewalling the approval of the new Inspector General for those cases
    • We need to get some transparency here
    • There is a huge something very rotten in Denmark something is horribly rotten
    • We need to get a new inspector general to get those 190 cases out see if those are the same 40 cases as the wertkin
    • And then we have all the sealed indictments
    • He was selling sealed indictments. This Wertkin can was selling sealed indictments
    • Now, it's almost sounds like sealed indictments are every bit as much of businesses as expired or retired DEA licenses!
    • Let's get the bottom of this
    • This sealed indictment thing is bad news
    • It seems like a secondary market in sealed indictments
    • Is it just this one guy with the 40 indictments?
    • We have 10,000 more than 10,000 sealed indictments out there, we got to get to the bottom of this
    • First thing Trump can do just take all 190 whistleblower cases
    • And just publish just publish those
    • Publish the Inspector General report for the house
    • Publish all the Capitol police reports just push it out there the sergeant of arms etc just for starters
    • Just for starters just push it out just like you did with the Fast and Furious
    • Just push it out
    • Then we'll bring in Inspector Generals that can look at the crowd source analysis of all that information
    • And with these 40 cases out in San Francisco this Wertkin just push it out who are the 40 cases
    • We need to know
    • If somebody's selling sealed indictments we have a market being established for 40s indictments
    • We have to publish all 10,000
    • Who are the 10,000 sealed indictments
  • Day 141.5. We Will EEO Your Ass, Dr Wong. Write the Damn Script - YouTube
    • Day 140 this is part six or 141 part six here we are at the opium dome let me see if I can get that top
    • And the opium dome opiate dome I got it no no almost got it got it there it is
    • Taking the top off blowing the lid off the opiate dome
    • Forget about Omar Awan with the license with the DEA license ed I want you to think about Omar Awan and the DEA license anymore today
    • But this Curious Case of Dr. Wong
    • Now, this isn't I'm not saying two morons Wongs make a right
    • But this is a case where two Wong's may actually make a right
    • (that's hard to say if you do it really fast)
    • But though this Wong is 48 year old Albert Wong, not the younger guy who shot the women at Yountville--the executive director at the VA
    • But the a guy in Chino
    • He only writes 13 prescriptions a month he's a pharmacist 13 prescriptions a month
    • He's getting all kinds of pressure from these drug companies, we want to go in business, we'll provide you all the doctors, all you have to do is write the prescriptions write the prescriptions write the prescriptions
    • Well the guy--he feels pressured, so he goes into business
    • And it turns out these doctors are fake
    • These are Awan doctors--these are fakes. They're all fake
    • But now, he the FBI is coming after him
    • Now, because he wrote the prescriptions
    • He said I tried to see if they were real, I called the Awan doctors, and they seemed real I--
    • I only got a couple minutes to fill a prescription.
    • I only did 13 prescriptions a month
    • So he writes this letter, and he explains this situation saying, "hey I got muscled out of of my DEA license"
    • This is what happened 2012--it's the case you can read it I put it out on Twitter
    • Now, is this the same thing as Al Capone used to do?
    • Al Capone used to go into a bar...he'd send his guys into a bar
    • He'd say, "hey you got a nice bar--it'd be a shame if it exploded"
    • And the bartender would naturally go well you guys look pretty rough, can you tell me how it won't explode?
    • "Well you got to do protection"
    • "Oh what's how has protection work? (not child protection that's another)
    • "But the way it works is you buy beer from us. If you don't buy beer from us, the place explodes."
    • These are your choices. This is the old SEIU--I'm gonna give you a choice
    • And this is the Chicago Way, having spent a lot of time in Chicago
    • And I'm not saying Rahm Emmanuel's running the opiate dome
    • I'm not saying that. No Rahm Emanuel on the opiate dome
    • But that's your choice
    • And it looks like that same type of intimidation, SEIU intimidation tactic on these pharmacists is being used to get these DEA licenses
    • Now, what if it's the same DEA license that this guy gave up in 2012, that this Albert Wong, the shoot-'em-up guy at Yountville
    • What if he took over that same DEA license, and wrote thousands, and thousands of prescriptions, where the old real doctor, the real doctor Wong was only writing 13
    • What if that was true
    • We might have found the problem on Capitol Hill
  • Day 141.6. Why Are We Expecting So Much From Horowitz? - YouTube
    • Day 141
    • And here at the US Navy Memorial, nice flags here
    • Of course your name's Sandy Berger or a latter-day Sandy Berger there's your sandy pants right there, if you want to stuff your pants with some documents to obstruct justice, which is what we have electronically: terabytes to Pakistan
    • And of course this organization right here the DOJ not only has the FBI in their enforcement arm, but they have the DEA
    • Now, my question is everyone's waiting for the DEA's IG report
    • And they have 450 people--this Michael Horowitz
    • And everybody is expecting great things for Michael Horowitz
    • Well I'm gonna ask you: if myself and Task Force can find Omar Awan's DEA license
    • If we can find Saipov's license
    • If we can find Mark Lambert--the head guy still there trying to push Campbell as the informant, Campbell Soup, Mark Lambert's the key guy
    • He has a DEA license
    • If they can't find those
    • Wong, if they can't find Albert Wong's DEA license--the guy who supposedly has PTSD and is shooting up the VA
    • If they can't find those things, open source, with 450 lawyers
    • And all the inside information
    • And all the ability with the FBI to do any kind of deep dive on any person the United States possible
    • Why are we expecting so much from his report?
    • That's all I'm saying--is why are we expecting anything?
    • The only way that they've ever produced anything is by somebody producing documents in a lawsuit
    • And then they come in later said, "oh yeah we thought of that too"
    • That's the only thing that this is
    • Anyone who is expecting anything out of the Horowitz report is just doing wishful thinking
    • Wishful thinking
  • Day 142.8. [email protected] As Information Artist. - YouTube
    • Continue our series with JK day 142 part 7
    • So we're talking about internalizing information right internalizing it
    • How to apply it I had a student who was on the debate team
    • And foreign student from Cameroon right actually from Africa yeah
    • (looks like you're wearing the opium dome we're gonna move you off the opium dome and)
    • So the students this happened with all the students were many of the students
    • But they would apply it in their other classes the concepts that I taught
    • So the ability to extract, accept good information is the gathering of the good information
    • And then action literacy is acting ethically upon that
    • So she talked about how these concept of accuracy, accessibility, clarity, context, and then are being refined and relevant
    • Those are the main six concepts and--
    • G: how I think of this when I think of you
    • And your in your Mueller song
    • And then your Peter Paul and Mary song or its its Dion it was a guy named Dick Hollar
    • But I think Peter Paul
    • And Mary also covered that song Martin Luther--anybody here yeah the we'll get to that don't worry I know the fans are clamoring to hear--that John
    • And Abraham Martin and John
    • New lyrics Abraham Martin
    • And John got all the people we've lost all the young people we've lost
    • So it really is that's internalizing the with the part I like about this
    • And the part I like about when our searchers do compound searches is they are internalizing the story into themselves that are
    • The act of going and being active rather than passive
    • Yeah I want to say that George and Task Force are information literate and beyond that information I forgot
    • Again, you said fluency fluency there are information fluent
    • And most people didn't give them enough money if we don't get more money
    • That's exactly what they're doing
    • But I thought of music and you being an information artist sort of
    • You're an information artist in the sense that you are when you have to like redo a song with two funny lyrics you're kind of internalized you first have to internalize the information, then you have to re express it to the world
    • And you're creating
    • You're moving from like the consumer of information to a creator of information in a way
    • Yeah no thank you for saying that I hadn't even thought about it because it is a it does take a lot of work and you have to think it through
    • So I had to know the Grinch song for the Muller parody
    • And internalize it and then move off of that
    • So in that's it kind of the funnier example
    • The more serious example is the opiate crisis and, so you've got a couple of of meaningful stanzas at the end right
    • And one is about kids being lost is that
    • Yeah the third stanza is about all the young people that we've lost to the opioid crisis
    • You want to do that alright next anybody seen that crowing child
    • Wake up see what's going on
    • I hear cries from the secret place
    • And see the pain on a mother's face
    • I woke up and millions were gone
    • G: I think that to me is it doesn't just internalize, it somehow imprints on your heart--it's somehow that when you do that it's somehow that's with me for a promotional yeah connects emotionally
    • But but that's a part of information that imprinting of information
    • You've got it yeah that people don't know
    • And actually that's what advertising does in kind of a negative way--they manipulate you right and I use emotion to get you to buy something
    • So can be used first Norden called me by the way that called me her daughter had died from an overdose
    • So that's why when she saw the first clip, that's why she wanted to talk to you right away
    • Well I want to dedicate to all those people
    • And Pittsburgh we're gonna dedicate that song to you
  • Day 142.11. I wasn’t Looking - YouTube
    • Finally we decided to do a fourth piece
    • And not all action literacy is serious right it can be fun okay
    • Now, I'm gonna use it for my own purposes because that's how I am selfish and all that I
    • Action literacy, and if I have an information artist I'm gonna say "look you know"
    • But this song is gonna be about not lucky it's gonna be about just having fun
    • which is
    • "I wasn't looking JK", you can do a keyword search
    • "I wasn't looking JK" it's a song I wrote
    • Now, this sounds a little autobiographical like this is how you met your wife or something yes is it
    • And the gist the song is not looking and that's when you find love
    • There you go and that's when you find information for this channel to always remember "Search Search"
    • I'm kidding
    • That's how I found this about six weeks ago I wasn't looking for George Webb
    • And when I first saw it I saw how you just you cover so many bases I got about 20 percent of I'm like oh my god
    • So let's outro here on a bouncy sunny jingle
    • So nice the weather it was spring here is great
    • So you need me to
    • Let's make that the background
    • {{SONG}} I wasn't looking through the park that way I wasn't seeing
    • But the Sunny day
    • How do you find a love when you're not looking
    • She was cooling
    • But the place was hot was just all my way to the parking lot
    • How do you find a love when you're not looking
    • But it found her that night
    • It was a shining bright
    • And it found me to hey
    • We were looking
    • And that is our story
    • Is you guys got to look for this channel
    • But also look for those serendipitous channels like JK's
    • So JK space swamp space Muller or information artist or information artist
    • Or I wasn't looking jk jk there you have it what is it active literacy action literacy
    • And information literacy
    • And action lose it
    • And we'll catch you in Lisbon if we don't get you in Lisbon will see you in Bosnia
  • Day 142.12. MedCOM. - YouTube
    • Day 142 it's part 12
    • And we can't seem to get off Capitol Hill before more news breaks
    • But phantom secured phantom secure
    • If you wanted a secure phone that would be like a phantom you'd probably contract with phantom secure
    • Oh by the way it turns out Albert Wong's company ABM ABM is an SEIU Union
    • And they do Med secure
    • They do medical facilities MEDCOM the Medical Command
    • If Medical Command is in California, and Albert Wong is doing that medical security with a phantom secure blackberry: Wow!
    • Anyway we don't know if these BlackBerry's these phantom secure BlackBerries
    • They rip the phone out, they rip the microphone out, excuse me they rip the camera out, they rip the browser out, they ripped the normal messaging services the normal BBS messaging services out
    • It's a stripped-down phone reminds me of Obama's phone actually with only 30 phone numbers hardwired into it
    • That's the phone number that Jack Lew and Dennis McDonagh gave Obama, so that he could only text 30 different people
    • Very nice thank thanks, Joe Biden
    • Well anyway I don't think was Joe Biden either those other folks
    • But anyway they watered down his phone
    • McDonough did it and Lew
    • But anyway getting back to phantom secure
    • This is the one that the all the bike gangs have
    • Phantom secures also the provider to who Sinaloa cartel
    • Fast and furious cleared out all the gangs
    • Made it so that the Mexican oil company could be Denationalized, being able to sell the Gulf Shore leases
    • All this is tied together into one big land grab
    • And the people that we're giving the BlackBerries phantom secure BlackBerries
    • Again, all we need to do is publish the server
    • And we'll find out what those IP addresses are
    • And the other thing about phantom secure is it can remotely wipe the phone if it's ever confiscated by authorities
    • Ramos is the guy's name
    • Not Jorge Ramos of what's that Ramos Vincent Ramos is the CEO
    • It's a company based in Canada I think it's based close to blackberry
    • I think it's in Ottawa
    • I think I think Blackberry was in Ottawa
    • And I believe phantom secure's also in Ottawa
    • So this is very closely tied to NATO
    • And the whole NATO crypto Development--the whole government of Canada's cryptography development
    • And that's that's who Hillary went to to, to do the cryptography for these Blackberries
    • Now, I believe that Blackberries are still being configured by Rao Speedwagon Abbas
    • And being run in and out of the buildings--potentially, from the server by Jamal
    • But the technology comes from Ottawa
    • Comes from this same the same place that phantom secure got their cryptography
    • And encryption technology it's the same place that from blackberry it all comes from blackberry
    • As a matter of fact why not just point right at the Canadian embassy
    • It comes from that Canadian embassy right there
  • Day 142.14. Learning Our DEA Letters - YouTube
    • This is Day 142 this part I think 13 this big day
    • So Rizvi everybody's one of rizvi
    • It's kind of taken capitol hill by storm
    • I remember the frisbee craze
    • I remember hula hoops
    • I do not remember abomb beers, I do not remember Coonskin caps
    • But apparently Rizvi if you can find a Rizvi now, on Capitol Hill it's worth big bucks
    • It's like Bitcoin worth--it's like a one Rizvi is like worth a Bitcoin
    • No actually Rizvi is a name of interest
    • I was just kidding you
    • R I Z V I
    • And it's a name of interest in Florida Rizvi investments
    • We recommend everybody go to their website and and--check out Rizvi R I Z V I
    • Well he also has a DEA license
    • So it probably is worth while we all learn about DEA licenses, since it's the most pressing problem in America right now bar none
    • With what 170 opioid deaths a day?
    • That's 1010 parklands a day
    • So this is the most pressing problem in America
    • So let's learn a little bit about licenses for DEA there's only two letters
    • That's a nice part it's--it's kind of like those alpha Bravo teams--the Alpha splitters
    • And the betas stringers
    • They only have to worry about two letters--it's easy
    • Or if you're in the Awan brothers, doing grain or something, A B AB auto
    • Just two letters a B a B a one brother ID
    • So the two letters first two letters--the first letter is going to be the type of practitioner that you are
    • So A B there's an F and a G
    • You just think of all the grades you might get from a teacher
    • And then they add a G because they like me
    • Those are the top level practitioners research hospitals institutions big boys
    • A through G
    • Then there's an M level, first letter again, first letter, M level, which is a mid-level practitioner
    • Those are your physician's assistants, and those clinic nurse practitioners
    • And then exporters are PR
    • So you can think of like "PR firms"
    • Like like most of the people who have been getting these export licenses seem to be PR firms!
    • So P and R
    • Well this one's F and W
    • So Rizvi, we just just saw that he had an export license, we were just going through the list, and saying FW? what's the W?
    • Is a W a special class for R is V or is it not we didn't see anything after R
    • So that's out there for the group
    • Now, MEDCOM
    • We did identify med come it's based in San Antonio Texas they have a young woman that's running Army US Army MEDCOM
    • All the medical security for the US Army
    • Now, it's just odd that that Wong--Albert Wong
    • And we don't know if Albert Wong's dad is the one in the California pharmacy board or sisters the one on the pharmacy board for Hawaii
    • We don't know any of that
    • But what is weird is that ABM his security company contracts directly for US MEDCOM
    • That is strange. That is crazy
    • So we need to drill down on more on ABM we need to drill down more ends
    • Plus it's an SEIU Union!
    • We need to drill down more on that, and find out how actually these drugs move around
    • And who is in charge of the security of these drugs I think it's gonna be ABM, meaning it's a third party
    • And that is gonna be trouble that's going to be trouble
  • Day 142.16. Correction on Roxbury DRs - YouTube
    • Day 142.15 real quick correction
    • Of course we got cannon here then we've got the long Longworth office building ready
    • Can't you just see Rao and Jamal running in and out with those cartridges--those toner cartridges
    • And of course we've got the office building down there the Rayburn office building, John Wilkes phone booth
    • Now, where those drives just put out there for--a placeholder we don't know right now just yet
    • But one last thing is the second letter the second letter in a DEA license should be the first letter of someone's last name
    • Should be the first one letter of someone's last name
    • So Webb would be a W
    • So FW this is the Rizvi last name, should be an R, right? Should be an R for his Rizvi last name and
    • Now, I've learned Q has said this Rizvi person is important
    • I don't want to jump on--drink the Q-laid yeah
    • I don't necessarily think Q is always on mark with a Q-laid
    • But he did say the Rizvi thing is important
    • The only thing I could add to that is that this is odd that the second letter is not an 'R' it's a W in his DEA license
  • Day 142.21. Your Turn Not To Burn - YouTube
    • We thought we were done
    • But we're not. So this is Margaret Lewis, say hi Margo
    • ML: HI
    • Is that too tight?
    • So Margaret is we see folks here in Washington that each come that have something very important to say
    • And I feel like it's my job when I meet somebody like this to really help them
    • And when they want they have something specific, like an action step, like hey we need to tweet this guy Monk or whatever his name is, I want to do it
    • Now, this is a sad story because her daughters horribly burned when she was 16, by a very simple little tiny fix called a "flame arrestor" a flame flame arrestor
    • And for how long for two hundred years that flame arrestors have been used?
    • ML: yes flame arrestor have been on anything that we cook with heat with her light in all of our homes and everyday use, since they were first invented and patented--1800s
    • And problem is somewhere around 2002, manufacturers decided in order to compete in the marketplace they'd save some manufacturing costs and take the safety guard off
    • And when you don't have this little tiny piece of metal or plastic on the opening it turns it what it would be a normal gas can or ethanol or methanol type of a container into a flamethrower
    • And when that vapor gets sucked inside of a container, we call them an an ice or internal container explosion
    • An ice will shoot a flamethrower anywhere up to 15 20 23 feet well
    • And the research has been done by ATF, CPSC everybody knows it
    • And we've been part of trying to get these flame arrestors required, and put back on instead of voluntary
    • And it's been really hard
    • So that's why I said, "hey if I walking down the street or I do an escalator I would ask you for
    • G: and Margaret said, "hey George I know you"
    • So so this is the thing Margaret was worked with GE I think we can say--that you were six six sigma black belt, continuous process improvement
    • Work for Jeff ML work for the previous guy at Welch
    • So this is a person who you were like in the top executive circle going to China China China for
    • ML: I was a lucky girl that could always make my numbers
    • And I like doing what I did
    • And I was very I I enjoyed the challenge till I do it's like I'm not having fun anymore
    • I'm a mom I got twin daughters I needed to do some other things now
    • G: But your life dramatically changed when this happened to your daughter
    • And she was there at the Shriners Hospital with her daughter
    • And she described how they have to exfoliate the skin every 12 hours
    • And the pain...and this is a mom that I see just incredible fortitude
    • I mean I just yeah--just put one foot in front of the other
    • And just make this thing happen
    • ML: I represent about 4,000 moms a year
    • This is happening 4,000 times a year somebody gets burned by a flammable liquid--not my numbers
    • Facts are my friends it's as NFPA's numbers
    • G: This is a very simple fix--this is a ten-cent this is reminds me of the Pinto
    • This reminds me so much to the Pinto, which we had that $5.00 thing on in the gas can
    • And then we had all these people getting the $5
    • ML: Funny you should bring that up, I just happen to have three flame arrestor on me
    • yeah
    • G: I remember those as a kid when you mow the yard right this little piece of metal our screening could be right in like a gas can yeah or the kin that I spent $25 on yeah they sold him to me telling me it was safer
    • And the price had gone from 17 to 25 dollars
    • So I said I'm gonna buy a case
    • They sold me a case
    • And this is the one that didn't put on that one
    • So the manufacturer that showed me that for $25 didn't put this on
    • Can we agree this is not expensive
    • G: that's not expensive
    • ML: This is what caused the damage
    • Here's one and this is a metal one
    • You can see this one would be on like of a car D room 151 oh very high proof, because bartenders do bad flaming shot
    • And here's another one that's on metal or excuse me um this was I not like a alcohol gel
    • So just so you can appreciate this is just three examples you can see
    • These aren't expensive these are complicated they've been around for 200 years
    • G: So let's let's do a quick call to action now
    • But you said is it Peter monk I what I heard
    • ML: Phil Monkton when I heard
    • G: But I heard Peter Monk I was like oh not not that guy. Yeah Moncton like a monk with a ton of stuff on his back
    • ML: yes Phil Moncton is the guy that drives me crazy
    • He's the vice president a largest Gas can company
    • He's also the president
    • G: what's the largest gas can company?
    • ML Scepter S C E P T E R
    • Scepter out of the Canada
    • G: let's all tweet scepter and say, "hey how about the flame arrestor?"
    • ML: Yes it's like five cents scepter had them on their products they took them off by 2002 I happen to have found depositions
    • So I know when they try to claim oh we don't know what they are we need to study it more
    • Because Phil is the chair of the committee that's been pretending to fix the problem for 10 years
    • He's the president of the Manufacturers Association, which is the lobbying group
    • And he's the vice president of all their sales and revenue streams
    • So that one individual--if we can just get one person to like move aside, we can solve this problem
    • G: And what I would recommend it is there's a healt and welfare committee in the House and the Senate side is
    • Find out which representatives are on there and then tag those wraps, saying, "hey why not this flame arrestor--this is ridiculous"
    • When I heard the description of...but I heard the description of her with her her child, it's worth it, do it, just send out a quick tweet that's all there is to it
    • ML: can I ask one thing sure can I ask everybody to do me a huge favor
    • It would mean a lot to me if you'd also look at asking your representatives to support [[HR 919]]](https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/919) Portable Filled Container Safety Act
    • It's a very balanced bill
    • We're saying just put the safety guard back on
    • And we're saying CPSC, you must protect consumers and students in schools, because there's three or four hundred kids
    • G: in science classes these are in science classes, so your kid could be affected, not just kids mowing in the yard
    • ML: right right right
    • And it's always people in their homes in social gatherings
    • And family gatherings
    • It's our houses it's the things they're supposed to be safe to us right
    • And we just want to make it safe
    • Again, cuz it's completely safe with this guard back on there
    • It is you know
    • G: So how do people get in contact with you if
    • ML: Not Your Turn To Burn Dot Com
    • G: Not Your Turn To Burn Dot Com
    • I'm gonna leave it there because I'm gonna get goofy, so we're gonna leave it there
    • {{ 911: Too late! Just kidding we love ya George. Thanks for covering these human interest stories }}
  • Day 143.1 Maybe A Year of Saying "It's the Blackberries!" Played a Role in BB Bust? - YouTube
    • It's day 143
    • And yesterday was obviously a big day there was
    • I think a total of 12 or 13 different videos
    • And I just was amazed yesterday was probably the most productive day in terms of research, leading to entities
    • I don't get focused on let's say the Vegas shooting...
    • I don't focus on all the details other people do that
    • What I do is I say ok what were the people involved, and what were their associations
    • ABM for Wong turns out to be a provider, a secure provider for medCom
    • MEDCOM what is us Medical Command of the three regions based in San Antonio that sort of thing that comes from that
    • What are the parts systemically in our government that could be attacked?
    • What are areas of research that we should move down in and find out more about
    • And then help our government inspectors to drill down
    • That's the idea here same thing here with Erman Owens looking at
    • Are radiologists actually--and this is not a radiologist like a doctors radiologist--This is a person who's taking x-rays
    • Are those people really writing prescriptions?
    • Why do they have DEA licenses if they do
    • That sort of thing
    • I've read several articles from people that were radiologists that never ever receive their DEA license
    • And understanding the DEA license process more
    • And then I saw yesterday it went all the way down to suboxone being a Y or something, fairly far down into the alphabet
    • Maybe not all the way to Y
    • But understanding that, so that the public can understand how this crisis is happening
    • Again, a hundred and seventy people a day
    • If you're gonna march from--wherever in Parkland to Tallahassee, to protest 17 murders, where your police won't go in, even when there have 39 911 calls
    • And even when they have police on-site hearing shots
    • If if you're gonna won't walk all the way from--Miami to to Tallahassee
    • And I think they took buses I don't even think they did a march...{{ lol }}
    • Then why wouldn't you at least put some effort into knowing how these licenses are given out
    • And what the source of the problem is
    • And then you can do that from just doing compound searches
    • And that goes into what we did yesterday, because we have a 190 of these people out there, who are whistleblowers
    • I would bet a half of them a full half of them are somehow are either involved in DEA or VA type whistleblower activities
    • Just given the nature of the news and the metadata in the news
    • And we talked all about being an information artist
    • All the different ways that you can do searches
    • All the different ways that you can help get the message out
    • Protests of the song sixties songs kind of came to light with JK here what that was great
    • Then it brings out things like this just graphics that show in one picture
    • Here the three regions of the US Army Medical Command
    • And these are the are the different--softs points critical crush points potentially
    • And there's that list I was talking about of all the different lists of--C is a practitioner for DEA license
    • J and K--just let's we can always remember J and K now, because we have JK, right
    • And that's the importer and exporter--it turns out to be importer and exporter
    • I hate to associate JK with that
    • But then we have these treatment programs it's almost PTSD it's almost all the same letters of PTSD
    • Just throw an R in there--So yeah just throw an R in there
    • And then it goes all the way down to X for suboxone
    • But curiously enough for this Rizvi guy that Q thought was can be important, come to the Q-laid
    • He thought that was gonna be important there is no W there is no W there is an I believe suboxone is an X
    • But there is no W
    • And Rizvi's license has a W
    • Is that gonna now, be an easy tell for anybody in the VA to come forward with more leads?
    • Well we don't know
    • And then the last week we finished off with this kind of simple fix--
    • I love these things that are ten cents, that's save four thousand lives and four thousand mother's going to Shriners Hospitals to exfoliate their kids skin every 12 hours and watching the pain in their daughter's eyes when that happens
    • I love that one that's where regulations do make sense
    • And just say hey let's eliminate 2000 regulations for this one $0.10 fix
    • So people say well nothing ever happens
    • Yes something does happen
    • This is an indictment of Vincent Ramos
    • And this is the guy who makes that phantom secure software for blackberry
    • RICO conspiracy
    • And conspiracy to distribute controlled substance
    • "oh you didn't take down you only took down one company in Vancouver BC, right"
    • You only took down one company
    • Well it just happens to be the backbone as I've said here for months or almost a year of the Sinaloa drug cartel, the largest cartel in Mexico
    • You want a strike at opioids, you have to strike at Sinaloa cartel
    • There's no out there's no there's no avoiding that they are number one they are number one by far
    • They are the elephant in the room in Mexico in terms of drug cartel right
    • They're not number two
    • We went for number one
    • And this is 80% this is the gorilla
    • Everyone else is a chimp in Mexico we went for the gorillas
    • And we went right at the heart of the information backbone
    • And we struck and we got the indictment: boom
    • Now, we also know that many other tobike gangs sponsored by ATF in the United States used this type of phone
    • So this was real results
    • And it happened within eight hours that was the amazing part it happened while we were doing the broadcast, which was very cool
    • And then this company is obviously in Vancouver
    • Now, I wanted to also I'll just take a little time to talk about this article yesterday was a 15,000 word article it wasn't 30,000 words
    • I pasted twice in the word count
    • So she didn't get paid quite as much Janet Janet Meyer didn't get paid quite as much
    • But there was a great treatment written by
    • And I was like to promote other channels "empty wheel"
    • This guy is got that Trish Negron type hand that Harvard hand--where they really know how to write
    • And really know how to do literary criticism...if you haven't read 15 months and 15,000 words later boosters still obscure the timeline on the Steele dossier
    • I tend to very quickly summarize Deripaska Deripaska Deripaska right
    • That's the essence of the article which is what's being smoothed over
    • But if you really want to see a great treatment, the Harvard hand the Trish Negron type Harvard hand
    • And I wonder if I almost wonder empty wheel is
    • So it has such a fine hand I almost I think oh that's Trish
    • But anyway read empty wheel in this article I'll put the links in
    • And then getting to blackberry someone said Ottawa, because I've been to Ottawa a lot
    • But it's actually in Waterloo
    • And this was one of the first towns I stopped in after I did the pain clinics in Detroit, then I went to the toWaterloo and that's where I met this filmmaker
    • And we were talking about the pain clinics in Canada
    • And how BlackBerry really started kind of out as a paging company
    • And then people said hey we can use these pages back and forth and that becomes kind of a text conversation right

Questions Answers
How do you see isohunt.com compared thepiratebay.se? Rivals? Partners? Both. I'm not for their antics for utter disregard of copyright (Link to static.thepiratebay.se) we follow the DMCA. But I respect much of the policies of the Pirate Parties, and their recent book advocating shortening of copyright terms and sane copyright law reform, but not abolishment.
If you could update, revamp, or otherwise change the torrent protocol what would you like to see? P2P streaming ability. BitTorrent Inc. is working on that.
Is torrenting the final step in peer to peer file sharing? It's final in its openness. It's an open protocol, just like the WWW and history shows open protocols tend to stick around. It can evolve, new clients can implement new ideas, and that's what an open protocol allows. No prior P2P network since Napster is like it in its openness and that is what lasts beyond technical implementations.
Do you think it is possible or worthwhile to change the denotation of torrenting with piracy? Possible yes, easy no. I believe its "stigma" would change when more creators find new ways to take advantage of media sharing on the Internet, and new ways to monetize, directly or not. I'm always considering new possibilities.
How detailed are your logs and how do you curate and or control the torrents listed? We keep logs only for detecting suspicious network activity and bad bots, in aggregate. We don't curate or moderate any torrent, I don't believe that's the job of any search engine. Algorithmic ranking of search results yes but not curation, at least not by us. We have user votes on torrents similar to reddit and that factors into our ranking so you can call it communal curation.
Do you see yourself as a likeable outlaw evading an evil empire, or more of a morally ambiguous dark shadow gangster type...with a heart of gold? Aren't they the same thing? How about a reluctant revolutionary trying to tell the amoral empire to wake up.
Do you think that the future is bright for file sharing? Or in other words, how long do you think the crusade against file sharing will last for? Edit: I accidentally an extra word. As long as the uncensored and unrestricted Internet exists.
How do you stay afloat despite the legal threats? Do you have a large legal staff? We have lawyers in both Canada and the US genuinely excited about what our 2 cases mean, as our case is complicated but precedent setting. Having big cases is somewhat a good thing it turns out. We also have some academic support, and will especially need more with our Canadian case arguing the constitutional issues.
Hey Gary. I interviewed you a few years ago for an academic thesis about copyright and culture. I don't know if its of any interest to you, but its here now. Cheers man, and good luck. Cool!
An excited lawyer? Sounds expensive... Also are you hiring. Substitute excited for intellectually stimulated.
Where do you see the copyright industry going if your suit is successful? Work with us. If you can't fight them, join them. Monetize sharing activity already there. At least that's what I want to see. It worked for the VCR.
What do you think about software patents? Software patents are 99% frivolous and does more harm than good. They should die.
Why did you found isoHunt? Programming hobby when I was in university.
How do you foresee isoHunt evolving to the response and consequences of the case? Other than more court ordered censorship, I don't know.
How big is the team you work with? Is there a physical office? 5 of us and no office, we aren't all in the same city/country.
What is your general legal argument in the cases? What do you think are the important legal similarities/differences to cases like Napster and Megavideo? What precedents are you using to support your case? Link to www.scribd.com is already a good summary of arguments we've made previously in our US case.
Napster and Megavideo are networks into themselves, and/or host actual copyrighted content. isoHunt is a search engine of links on a pre-existing network (WWW).
Sony Betamax is a good precedent that copyright should not trump technological progress. For copyright, search engines and freedom of expression/constitutional issues specifically, there is no precedent we know of.
What is the worst threat you have received? Notice to take down some torrents from MS, just because they were the first (in 2004 I believe). We get all sorts of requests since then and one isn't really worse than another until Hollywood actually sued.
5 Favourite albums and movies? Laputa soundtrack (all the ones by Jo Hisaishi really), Mirrorball (Mclachlan), Shawshank redemption, Matrix, Contact.
Do you watch Community? No.
Is there anyway you can fix it so when I click to open a torrent in a new tab, the original tab doesnt go directly to the same torrent? Also thank you for being awesome Will see about that. Seems to be Chrome specific bug.
Would you ever steal a car, handbag, television or movie? No (I wouldn't), no, (I wouldn't), no (no one can), no (no one can)
Quantcast says your site gets about 23.6 million unique visitors per month. According to your analytics, is that even close? More. Quantcast is conservative.
How many web and DB servers do you use? Is this running on a LAMP stack or something else entirely? What kind of caching technologies do you implement? 9 web servers (Lighttpd and PHP), 5 databases (Mysql), 5 fulltext searchers (Lucene), Memcached for caching on each web server. All spread between 2 colos, in Canada and Sweden. All run Linux of course (Gentoo)
What kind of technical challenges have you encountered scaling up? Mysql. It's a PITA. Everything else is relatively easy to scale horizontally.
What do you think of Kim Dotcom? Interesting showman. I want to see what actual evidence they have if any, on charging him with racketeering and money laundering. Those are what makes a big criminal case, not mere copyright.
What do you think was his biggest mistake and what do you plan to do to avoid those mistakes? Paying uploaders.
Do you think a actual profitable business model could ever arise from torrents and P2P? If so, are you working on it? I'm still looking for it. The Internet and law is evolving, so what wasn't possible before maybe possible later.
Also, the more Tv shows, movies, Games are pirated the less the profit the companies that produced them make and the lower the quality of the next product or even the failure and closure of said company. what do you think of that concept ? do you think your participating in the decline of the general quality of the entertainment materials? Your premise is flawed. Digital sharing is not a zero-sum game. The creative industries are thriving, not despite of file sharing but I argue, because of it.
What type of resources do you have at your disposal to oppose issues such as ACTA/CISPA, etc? You. We are legion. (not that I'm endorsing a certain hacker collective)
What do you see in the future of the internet? What will be the next big thing? Will websites like yours ever die? Also, can you explain how your website affects the movie, music, and software business in a positive way? The internet is fundamentally made for sharing. Facebook is the darling of the Net right now and that's all about sharing. Anything new I can dream of would be about connecting people with information. For isoHunt, who knows. But it's over 9 years old and I certainly like it to stick around.
Are you receiving any notable help from outside parties in your lawsuits? IE; people hoping for favorable precedent? Google came and backstabbed us (mostly). We certainly welcome better interveners/amicus.
Link to torrentfreak.com. No, they filed an amicus in our case, pretending they are helping us before filing it. They basically said we shouldn't qualify for the DMCA safe harbor because we are a "pirate site". Perhaps they got annoyed by our comparison with Google and statistical analysis showing over 95% overlap that all torrents searchable on isohunt (based on info_hashes) are also searchable on Google (and Yahoo). I don't have their amicus on hand, it is on public dockets in the online database of the Ninth Circuit court of Appeals (US).
Google is the new MS. They should get some antitrust probes up their behind.
Sorry a bit late but I think this will explain Link to torrentfreak.com Yup, that.
Have you met the people who run piratebay? Who are the ninjas that run tpb? =b.
What changes would you like to see(to all industries that pirating affects), realistically, that would make a website like isohunt no longer controversial or needed? Worldwide simultaneous release, buying and streaming/downloading at a better than physical retail price, and no DRM.
Use isoHunt and other sharing sites as promotional networks.
Profit!
Do you think you will win your current legal case? We are certainly trying.
Don't despair, I successfully sued the Canadian Government on the grounds of slavery. Keep in touch with the players in legal academia and you'll be fine. You may even score some legal-groupie pussy (yes, it's a thing). I haven't sued the government yet, just inviting them to the party for now.
Define "legal-groupie pussy"?
Did you ever think your site would blow up the way it has? are you rich? what kinds of stuff CANT you talk about, so we wont ask those things? Among top 200 websites on the internet, no. It got bigger than what I expect. I won't talk numbers on our finances, I've updated in my OP ;)
Are you technical or business person? if technical how much do you contribute in actually production code? and if business what are your qualifications/previous experience in management?? I know this sounds like an interview but really, i am interested to know if you don't mind :) I've been working on it by myself as a hobby for a while since 2003. About 80% of isoHunt's code is still by me currently and I maintain my own soup. I am a business person in terms of finances, talking to lawyers, biz dev, etc. I wear many hats.
Qualifications? I was studying Engineering Physics. isoHunt is my qualification when it comes to business or tech.
You are unfortunately not standing on the shoulders of giants (rather the giants are trying to stand on you), and I commend you for how well you've done so far. Is there any way to donate for your legal battle? Thanks, but we aren't really collecting donations right now. That may change as our case requires.
What can we do to support a free internet in your opinion? Besides donating money to you and your legal battles or voicing an opinion on recent legislation (I'm in the U.S.). How do we collectivize and become a stronger community? Internet communities like reddit here is certainly great. And we've seen how people use Facebook and Twitter in revolutions. The important thing is we stay on top of new attempts at censoring the free Internet and protest against it, and not after they already become law.
Who would you say is isoHunt's target audience? And why? Every man, woman and child in the known universe.
How fast is your internet connection? Especially upload. What operating System do you use? My personal connection? 2.5 mbit upload. Mac OS X.
Would you download a car? Yes. Beam me up Scotty.
Which is better? Torrent or magnet? And why? They are the same thing technically.
Has the growing popularity of Spotify lessened music piracy? Whatchoo think about that? I don't have data for or against it.
Have you ever gotten any support from hollywood? or has any attention from them always been negative? Not from Hollywood/MPAA, which I'm not including indie film makers.
Are you scared about ending up in prison or financially ruined? Sure.
Hi Gary, I read that isoHunt was (originally?) based in Vancouver. If that's true, I just wanted to say that's awesome, and cheers from a hometown fan. :) Yes, me and business that runs isoHunt is in Vancouver. Best city in the world even if the nucks lost ;)
Since the site is Canadian, is there anything Canadians can do in particular to support your cause (politically, etc.)? Our Canadian case is still brewing. I'll update on Link to www.facebook.com and our frontpage on developments should we need your support, and thanks.
What is your take on copyright? How do you think an artist can get payed for his/het efforts? Copyright should exist, but without the crap on protecting DRM nobody wants (neither most business or consumer) and with a more sane copyright term. Copyright started out with 14 years centuries ago, that seems to be a good number instead of life + 70 years and perpetually getting extended. A copyright registration system to identify what digital content belongs to who would be useful with cases like ours. How an artist get paid? Live performance, merchandize, internet radio royalties and variants with collectives. The creative industries are already live and kicking, I don't see point of arguing how to rescue them. See Link to www.reddit.com
What maintains your motivation to continue, despite pressure from outdated distribution channels i.e movie studio's and record labels? how soon do you think these outdated channels of distribution will accept and adopt peer to peer distribution of media? I want to see it through to the end? And eventually, I hope. They had to with the VCR.
Thanks for all you have done for us all this years, and for this AMA. You already replied to all the most interesting questions, so I'm left with asking a less interesting one. Do you believe a service like this would benefit the torrenting community - either as a service allowing to bypass unacceptable business models while still compensating creators, or at least as a method to show the good will of the community? I was thinking something similar. The problem with something like this is how do you create an automated system and ensure reasonable authenticity that files/torrents A-E is copyrighted by author Z? It's a problem when you are sending money their way. But the idea is certainly been on my mind. Think a cross between Pinterest with Kickstarter, associating torrents/media with their creators and ways of promoting them, downloading media and paying them.
Yes, and they are also using it on a scale no one has EVER used before. Again, 99.9999999% of applications will NEVER run into scaling issues, especially on that magnitude. You can't possibly compare an enterprise product like Oracle, that has INSANE licensing costs to a FREE database like MySQL. Facebook wouldn't be anywhere it is today if they were paying Oracle licensing. Their pricing would have scaled them into bankruptcy. There is a reason MySQL is the most prolific db on the internet. Like you said, a billion dollar company could handle Oracles money now. But why bother? Mysql is prolific not because it's great technically, but because it's free and fast/simple in the day. Large companies like Google and Facebook uses it for legacy reasons, and they don't use it really as "SQL" so it's not really flattering. It has its uses but if I'm to do isoHunt all over again, I'd be using either Postgresql or Mongodb. (prior has same scaling problems but more consistent and less buggy, latter is a different animal)
How do you know it does not affect sales? Your comments about internet merchandising and gigging are truly ridiculous in many cases, some performers cannot do that to make money. Link to www.reddit.com
Imagine 5 years to write a masterpiece and you make a few thousand bucks cause 80-90% of the people are downloading it for free? It's a hypothetical yes but could you really and truly justify that in any way, shape or form? Obviously I'm talking about general trends and not specific cases.
What can you tell me about these busty russian brides who are waiting to meet me? You should write them some love letters and find out.
Sorry if someone asked this and I didn't see (considering there are 500+ comments). What is your favorite language for writing web applications? Do you use any frameworks? How about your DB engine? IsoHunt runs mostly on PHP, it's a simple and performant language. Ruby is elegant and we've worked with that. Currently, Node.js is the new awesome.
Do you think that people should be able to download copyrighted material? If not, what do you think would be a reasonable compromise between the copyright holders and the general public? Are videos of cute kittens copyrighted by some cat owner? Yes. Is it a problem being shared online? No.
Everything is copyrighted by someone somewhere, so it's a moot topic. Compromise lies in communication and identification of wishes of copyright holders with their associated files, with Internet intermediaries like us.
What do you think of Louis C's Live at the beacon? Do you think if Hollywood sold digital copies for cheap they would still make just as much money or more like Louis did? Why would it work for Louis and not for Hollywood? He's a comedian, not a magician.
Did you ever receive death threats or hateful letters from any political nut-cases? Hateful yes, death threats not yet.
When you were creating isoHunt.com, did you had second thoughts? If yes, what did you said to yourself in order to ignore them? Perhaps I didn't have enough second thoughts.
off, you guys are awesome... the second most awesome torrent site, in my opinion, right after the piratebay. Now, I've been a user of the piratebay, since I've discovered torrenting and I am very loyal to the site; what makes your site better? Convince me. Our search is better and bigger. We index torrents on hundreds of sites, TPB is one of them: Link to isohunt.com
If you had to recommend one torrent file for download to a complete stranger, what would it be? (Please also include a link) Link to isohunt.com
It's a great book.
Would you be interested on advising the creation of a Web 2.0 'copyleft' oriented site? It could include integration with isohunt. We welcome use of our API: Link to isohunt.com
I have something I wanted to ask you mr IsoHunt. What is your favorite kind of beer? Because if you ever stop by my hometown here in West Coast BC, I'd gladly treat you to one. Honey brown is good, or something light. I'm west coast BC too btw ;)
Have you considered taking bitcoin donations? Considered yes. But paying with it was rather convoluted?
If you win you and every person in high management should create a music album to raise money for the struggling record companies. The songs being your own covers of every single top selling track from each record company that sued you. And you should sell it for a penny. Hah, poetic justice.
by a not-so-emotional-yet-grateful woman. Group hug.
I don't know you, I don't know that I will ever know you, but on the off chance I ever meet you in person (and/or your team) i'd love to buy you a beer. Thank you. Cheers.
Trick question. AXXo who?
As someone who is trying to make it as a content producer in Hollywood, I'd just like to say THANK YOU. Obscurity is a far more dangerous fate then piracy ever will be, thank you for facilitating the spread of ideas, art, and culture. This is truly the future. We need more free thinking people like you.
Endure. Things are gonna get worst. The most dangerous person is that who has nothing to lose. That's quotable.
No this is the district court's summary judgment, prior to the 9th circuit court of appeal.
