They'll be bored and hungry. We'll have plenty to offer in terms of food, whether we'd think of it as that or not- but some stupid part of me insists on mentioning that we shouldn't be on the menu, even if it's elective, because they might be able to make us want that if we take our tinfoil hats off.

If the alien race that visits us first is not evolved enough to sustain themselves without having to consume everything in sight, I say we just genocide them.

EDIT: If they happen to taste good, then I instead recommend we genetically modify them to be stupid, easy to reproduce, and highly allergic to urine (so that if they get out of line, ANYONE will be well equipped to kill them).

You are assuming a bit more competence in aiming than I have ever judged half our species to be capable of. If it is urine that kills them, men will have no chance, especially with coffee likely to be extinct in the next 100 years due to global warming.

In any case, I think it's probably more likely that we'll encounter AI and not its inventors, since biology is typically tailored to it's original or longest sustaining environment, and is hard to redesign without technology more advanced than the kinds of programs we have already been running, publicly, for the last 20-odd years to do our thinking for us. Beyond which there is the consideration of biological systems, organisms or groups or otherwise, being able to find both materials with which to expand themselves, and the energy with which to sustain their existence; the cheap trick of stasis may seem like a neat one, but most assuredly will wake you up to a universe of unpleasant and dangerous surprises that have been perfecting themselves during your long nap; so I don't think stasis will be any other species' solution, either.

I'm almost positive he made sense about something one time. Can't remember about what, or when, though.

i'm sure he'll write an epic post about it that no one will read sometime before solving piracy.

I think I'm gonna fuck off and solve piracy for a while. I'm stuck at prototype-level shit have been wasting too much of everyone's time here, but have still been getting closer to real implementations, so I'll see if I can't throw together a tutorial for using what I've come up with when I come back in a week or two.

About 'ending' piracy, the reality is that it changes the way piracy works in the sense of monetizing normal 'pirate' behavior on peer networks, giving a vehicle for content creators to make money from it in addition to any other means they have, and as kind of a side effect allows some neat ways to monetize collaborations or add-ons to content. I can say it works with confidence because almost none of this shit is new, the only new thing is the scale any of it works at and the medium it's being implemented in. The only things it won't end piracy with, at a decently large scale, are things that are illegal under any circumstances- like terrorist manuals and child porn, and fuck that anyway.

you're basically a dictionary of words managers use to sound smart in meetings that actually have no value or purpose.

tl;dr: you're full of shit and everyone knows it.

Choscura you've never posted like this before. Usually it's a sign of a tumor or something worse. Please get checked by a doctor; I am being serious here.

Nah. Since P4P showed up, he's smelled one of his own. They're in that anxious stage where they sniff and whimper and pee on each other and stuff. It'll pass...
