Crypto-Current (015b)

The next series of Crypto-Current installments, constituting the first chapter of the book (which is also the introduction), will be appearing in print before the end of the month, when Šum magazine is releasing a special Bitcoin edition, also including contributions by Edmund Berger and Paul Ennis.

The version of the text found there will obviously be much nicer, released from ugly blog format, with proper (numbered) footnotes, not to mention appearing in the right order, and emerging in more than irritating chunks.

In order not to tread on Šum’s toes, every effort will be made in the next few days to make your Crypto-Current reader experience as appalling as possible. Chunks will be even further salamified and if any other ideas for maximizing the hellishness of presentation turn up, they will be eagerly seized upon. Thank you for you cooperation. (Irritated comments will be gratefully received.)

Current resumes imminently …

  2. Honestly, I’m not even irritated.

    (I’m fairly new to your whole oeuvre, so I’m still in that wide-eyed state wherein I’ll gamely read anything you’ve written. At this point, you could write filthy limericks and I’d try in earnest to parse them. You could, like, throw chalk.)

    This doesn’t strike me as a 101-level space, but I’m going to go ahead and address this question to everyone, commenters as well as admin, because it’s Thanksgiving in America and I’m drinking: in what sense are circuits diagonals?

    …Something about eigenvalues? Am I even remotely on the right track? An “aye” or “nay” would be SO rad. Cheers, guys!
