Brown Scare

… can really mess up your head (and your blog).

This detailed account of exactly how LGF lost everything — starting with its mind — is a comedy masterpiece. My single favorite fun fact:

LGF decline stats, Dec 2012. Has a list of the top 21 most prolific commenters on LGF in 2007. All but 2 are now banned.

    Is there any neoreactionary that didn’t read or comment on LGF in 2001? I never got banned, but when froth started coming out of my monitor accompanying Odin’s Crosses I simply assumed the thing was possessed and showed myself the door, permanently.

    O/T but since Twitter being difficult I’m putting this Space lure void thing here.
    ===================
    Atlanta, GA – March 12, 2015. Jeff Garzik, Bitcoin pioneer and CEO of Dunvegan Space Systems (DSS) announced he has signed a contract with Deep Space Industries (DSI) to build a 24 BitSat satellite constellation as the first element of a new strategic alliance between the two firms. The nanosats to be used in the Dunvegan constellation designed by DSI provide an order of magnitude cost advantage over traditional telecommunication satellites. Based on the industry standard Cubesat form factor, BitSat enables a cost and performance framework that supports the open platform business model employed by Dunvegan.

    “Just as Bitcoin is revolutionizing financial exchanges, Dunvegan will do the same for space systems with this project,” said Garzik. “To do it right we needed a partner that was both visionary and technically capable. Once I began to work with Deep Space we realized we had found that partner.”

    Building on expertise in open-source software and democratized financial systems, Garzik launched this new company to capitalize on the rapidly emerging commercialization of space and advancements in technology platforms. Dunvegan specializes in distributed applications and computing solutions for the space based market, including Software-as-a Service (SaaS) platforms and financialization of space resources.

    “DSI’s long term goal of harvesting space resources is well known, and our first steps involve developing nimble, low cost spacecraft that turn out to be very similar to the needs of Dunvegan,” said DSI CEO Daniel Faber. “Partnering with DSS on the BitSat project allows DSI to ramp up production of our spacecraft avionics suite and implement several improvements. It’s a perfect match all around.”

    The DSS constellation will be the first-ever constellation of communication satellites based on open platform principles, with a focus of providing communications, data processing, storage and broadcasting capabilities in space. The deal to build and fly the spacecraft was signed after a several months long interaction between the two firms, including a detailed constellation and spacecraft design project completed last summer by Deep Space at its Silicon Valley based NASA Ames facility.

    “This is the first of a number of efforts we have planned with DSI,” said Dunvegan CEO Jeff Garzik. “Dunvegan is focused on providing software and data solutions for our customers, while the partnership with DSI will provide the hardware for this and several upcoming projects. Together we believe we can help transform the ability of people around the world to benefit from space activities, be it in terms of communications or resources.”

    Daniel Faber and Jeff Garzik will be participating in a panel session at SXSW Interactive on Monday, March 16 at 11am. Due to the popularity of the panel, “Big Data in the Off Planet Era” this session is now RSVP only. If you are a SXSW badge holder, RSVP to attend the panel here or search using the hashtag #OffPlanet. Both companies, Deep Space Industries and Dunvegan Space Systems will also be presenting at a special Space Road Show event on Sunday evening. For more information on this exclusive event for accredited investors, please contact Meagan Crawford at Media@DeepSpaceIndustries.com.

    About Dunvegan Space Systems:
    Dunvegan Space Systems is preparing to launch the first-ever constellation of communications satellites based on open platforms and computing systems, with a focus on providing data processing, storage and broadcasting capabilities in space. Dunvegan believes that the rapidly emerging commercialization of space represents an untapped market for open-source communication and computing systems that can provide unique advantages over current terrestrial solutions.

    About Deep Space Industries Inc.
    Deep Space Industries is a technology and spacecraft design company, currently developing efficient means of utilizing the resources of outer space. DSI will locate, harvest, and refine asteroid materials and then manufacture and distribute products, propellants and technology solutions to in-space customers.

    I’m too predisposed to get excited about DSI to trust my instincts on the topic.

    Hegemonizing Swarm Reply:

    My gut feeling is doubt. Space is hard (especially “efficient means of utilizing the resources of outer space”), but very attractive for a certain group of investors. Which creates an opening for scams and overconfident vapourware (MarsOne anyone?). DSI being a scam is unlikely, but we still have to see whether they can really pull it off. Good luck to them.

    Sounds sensible, but eventually they’ll get it to work — especially if the canned-monkeys aspect has been shelved indefinitely (which seems to be the case).

    The headline works for the white-nat morass too.

    That surely depends upon it having similar effects.

    If Yuray or NIO, for non-random e.g., were following the LGF guilt-by-indirect-association path, they’d have to delink this blog — and every other in the reactosphere — immediately. In other words, I’m very far from convinced that there’s been anything approaching a ‘morass’ in this case. Sensible boundary-setting is not a Brown Scare.

    I think I meant something exactly the opposite of what I meant. When HBD descends into scare of the brown, it gets silly.

    Sorry, but I’m stealing your first sentence.

    I’m not really sorry, but tragically bemused. I am only able to differentiate a posteriori, i.e. having observed that I was sorry and yet not sorry. I’m sorry about this explanation, though.

    Maybe I’m just sleep deprived but your example confuses me. Can some one explain this or what little green football is? Maybe I’m too young.

    Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs was one of the “Four Horsemen of the Ablogalypse”, along with Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit), Steven Den Beste (USS Clueless), and Andrew Sullivan (Daily Dish). They were the most prominent small mammals in the aftermath of the 9-11 shock who made it clear that the established media dinosaurs had lost their hold on the ecosystem.

    Alrenous Reply:

    For reference, LGF decayed as above, while Den Beste now writes exclusively about anime. Seems Sullivan is formally discontinuing to write for the Dish. Reynolds is still at it, perhaps helped by the minimalist style.

    @admin indeed. My issues with WN are 1) they are wrong 2) they have zero change of even approaching having a clue 3) they’re totalising crypto xtians. They also have their own labels and monikers so the colonistation occasioned by the ridiculous trike seems cynical to me.

    @rob is it? They spent a lot of time railing against xtianity, but they ended up with multiple deep connections with catholicism. Their usage of socialism and their attitudes to property are pure xtian as far as I can figure.

    Orthodox Laissez-fairist Reply:

    What does “Christian” attitude to property even mean, let alone “pure”? You say that like there’s some monolithic Christian stance on economic issues. Didn’t some previous pope declare private property to be “sacred and inviolable”, while current pope speaks nonsense? Aren’t some of the most prominent Austrian scholars catholics, while at the same time there are those Marxist “liberation thelogists”?

    Chris B Reply:

    Go to Locke. Realize his concept of property is rooted in his theology. Realize pretty much everyone in the west since Locke has accepted his concept as good to go (Nazi, Marxists, libertarians, liberals – all modern western ideology post Locke) and connect the dots.
