Buffer was hacked this weekend. Adobe was recently hacked and they mailed me a thing in the mail to tell me about it. Security is the biggest barrier to bitcoin’s adoption. No sufficiently complex computer is fully secure, and this is a big reason why bitcoin can’t take off. http://open.bufferapp.com/buffer-has-been-hacked-here-is-whats-going-on/
How do receipts work?
When a payment request is signed it’s not just the addresses. The memo is also signed. By keeping around the signed payment request, and the transactions you created to satisfy it, you obtain a mathematical proof of payment. The merchant cannot dispute what was paid for because the memo field contains a description, nor can they dispute that payment was delivered (unless they claim they lost control of their private keys, of course).
This is great because it fills in a missing piece for low-trust third party dispute mediation using multi-sig transactions. Currently if you tried to implement that, you’d run into the problem of a buyer saying “seller did not deliver!!” and the seller saying “the buyer never paid me!” or more problematically, buyer saying “seller gave me something different to what I asked for” and the seller saying “I gave him exactly what we agreed on”.
With receipts, it suddenly becomes much easier to figure out what happened in a transaction and recompense the right party.

Steve Spielberg was rejected from USC three times.
Never let rejection get you down. Similarly, if you see someone get rejected, never let that lower your opinion of them.
“the northern Malian desert poses little threat as it is and could become a magnet for terrorists if the US gets too heavily involved”
I’m not sure how anyone could seriously consider increasing intervention there. Did they forget Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam?

Aaron, Manning, Assange, Kyriakoy, Occupy, all persecuted, hounded, some tortured. For what? For speaking truth to power, for revealing corruption, war crimes. For liberating information.
Meanwhile, Yoo, Addington, Libby, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzales go around signing book covers and giving lectures about national security. The murderers, torturers and torture apologists are celebrated. The whistleblowers crushed.
Blankfein, Greenberg, Pandit, Mozilo, Geithner, go around lecturing us about financial responsibility, instead of rotting in jail for fraud, theft, embezzlement, corruption, bribery and multiple criminal conspiracies.
This is the disgusting injustice the underlies Aaron Swartz’s death. A Department of Justice that makes a mockery of the word “justice”, where the rule of law has become a joke, where the greatest criminals of our day wear ties and suits and are *absolutely beyond prosecution*, while the poorest get relentless, unforgiving, zero tolerance prosecution for the tiniest of misdeamenors.
Aaron was cursed with the ability to open his mind wide enough to see the world in all its ugly injustice and reality. His idealism, passion and honesty made him speak truth to power, so he was crushed.
There are only two crimes that are punished in this country now: being poor or challenging the powerful.
