Found this scrap of paper with a bunch of stuff scribbled on it.

What kind of stuff?

Well this is actually my first attempt to define zot and specifically how nomadic identity would work at the protocol level. It's now some five years later and we're doing it pretty much exactly like I scribbled way back then. Ignore the math. That was something else scribbled over the top of the zot definition. I'm hoping that longhand calculation wasn't very critical because it's uhm wrong.

I read an explanation of what it means somewhere - if you do not know, you should look it up. Great story!

Love that song. Thanks so much for posting this original version, @Mike Macgirvin Since when that song hit me during Rainman it has never left me, there are enough cover versions to keep it fresh with an ever changing musical life.

Was wondering when we would see something like this. Wonder no more. So if you are more or less self-sufficient in terms of energy, but still connected to the grid; the grid can reach in and take your electricity if they are running out.

Perhaps you'll understand the significance of this someday.

And just so you know, I tend to prefer the original (Larry Williams) version of this song - even ahead of the Beatles which I bought as a 45 in 1964; but this one popped up in a search and I decided to go with it. It's pure flash in the pan, which is sort of what we're discussing here.

Love the song, but that jitterbug scene was likely stolen. I've seen it on probably 30 different 'original music videos' now. I think it's originally from a  Bill Haley clip.

Yeah, I see that now. :-D

I've been telling folks this ever since they hacked me. It was clever, very advanced, and thorough. Many did not believe or thought I was just being tin-foil-hat paranoid.

The major takeaway from the latest WikiLeaks dump centers around the terrifying, 'all-seeing-eye' surveillance project codenamed 'Weeping Angel.' The CIA appears to have taken espionage to a whole new level if WikiLeaks' initial analysis is...

Wikileaks Unveils 'Vault 7': "The Largest Ever Publication Of Confidential CIA Documents"; Another Snowden Emerges | Zero Hedge

WikiLeaks has published what it claims is the "largest ever publication of confidential documents on the CIA." It includes more than 8,000 documents as part of ‘Vault 7’, a series of leaks on the agency which expose the agency's massive hacking arsenal.

Even my router maker, MikroTik gets a mention:
HIVE: HIVE is a multi-platform CIA malware suite and its associated control software. The project provides customizable implants for Windows, Solaris, MikroTik (used in internet routers) and Linux platforms and a Listening Post (LP)/Command and Control (C2) infrastructure to communicate with these implants. The implants are configured to communicate via HTTPS with the webserver of a cover domain; each operation utilizing these implants has a separate cover domain and the infrastructure can handle any number of cover domains.

This has been on many news sites now - and still no reaction whatsoever from most people. That's scary.
