Re: <nettime> Ethereum: DAO - "The Attacker"

The whole thing reeks of religion. Just observe facts - the next rally where the necessity to do the unmentionable will be pitched is held:

1. On Sunday
2. At some place called "Institute for the Future"

( http://www.meetup.com/EthereumSiliconValley/events/232438189/ )

These (1. and 2.) are attributes of cults, not technology/finance events (I wonder if they'll provide yoga mats and incense.) The incentive to appreciate yet another strain of Moonies is frankly beyond me. Too fu*king human.

So well, it seems to me that, contrary to most projects around, this
is not really a selfish race to success, one of the main reasons I
still can appreciate the human background behind Bitcoin et al.. there
is some René Daumal in that magic powder, believe me. yes there are a
few, but they contemplate each other, not necessarily desiring to
cover up each other efforts. Is this really defining what an elite is?
