Pied Piper Pic: Bearding the Dragon in His Lair!


Erlich’s attempt to dissuade “Action Jack” from his appliance strategy was unsuccessful, yet a noble attempt. One is tempted to think Jack’s late fish (pictured above) had an allergic reaction to Mr. Barker’s small thinking.

  1. Can Pied Piper compress natural objects? For example, could medical herbs be compressed so as not to be detectable when hypothetically traveling across state lines via an airplane or other form of public transportation?

  2. Hah! Leave it to “Action Jack” to put the salespeople above the engineering team in the org chart. Pied Piper is doomed. And when will Bachman get off his ass and go for his Masters in Ultimate Frisbee?

  3. I get paid 75 bucks every hour for work at home on my laptop. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my good friend HTe is earning 14k /monthly by doing this job and she showed me how. Try it out on following website

    ……….. OnlineCash9.COMok ………please remove (ok) from web adress

  4. I would really like to reach Russ Hanneman please. I have a revolutionary idea for a car door that goes like “this”!! Forget about the McLaren, it’s garbage compared to my idea! My door will go like “this”… and “that”!! Russ, my door and your money really need to meet! I’ll give you a little teaser… The hinges look like commas!! Enough said.

  5. Can some ask Mr Hendrix if he needs a head of SEO.

    You’re blocking the site in your robots.txt – I can fix that.

    I like to make the world a better place.

    Thanks, Craig

  6. A negative comment about the CEO of the company on their own website, written by one of the company’s own employees? This breaks my suspension of disbelief.

  7. Just tell me what concrete information you have for me on this web page, that I don’t already possess!

  8. Hello?


    I desperately need to get in touch with Russ Hanneman, regarding a potentionaly lucrative business proposal. I will not disclose any details at this point, but I can give a tease about the subject. Are you ready? (Of course you are not)

    Internet. On. The. Radio. BAM!

    Can’t wait to hear from you Russ, and also:

    , , ,

    Nuff said

    1. Wolfmeister – Billionaires don’t waste time with desperate people. But please do get in touch with my Intellectual Property Lawyer about Internet. On. The. Radio. He smells money for me and Copyright Infringement lawsuit for you.

      Do you have a Billion Dollars? If not, I highly recommend not using The Three Commas. The Club looks down on Three Comma usage by two, one, or no comma people and I don’t remember seeing you at the Three Comma Summit.

      Gotta go. Finalizing some details on a Huge Franchise in a Large State with Tall Players. Not to disclose any details, but my Intellectual Property Lawyer said Sarah Palin is in Big Trouble!

Problem 1:

Single Points of Failure

Libraries are vulnerable to losing their collection because all of their books are contained at a single location. Say, for instance, that there was a fire, or a flood, or a vandal defaced John James Audubon’s masterpiece Birds of America by giving all the Warblers human genitalia. Even worse, if the vandal recruited bird haters from other neighborhoods and got ahold of all the copies of the book in existence, it could be lost crude doodles forever. It would be a tragedy on par with the destruction of the Library of Alexandria.

The Problem

Because Birds of America is centralized in one public location, it’s susceptible to permanent deletion. The same goes for content on the Internet — storing all your family photos on a single account in a cloud service? They could all be wiped away if someone hacked your account or corrupted the host servers.

The Solution

Our solution: In our decentralized library, we would duplicate and distribute multiple copies of Birds of America to your neighbors — if you need a copy, you would just go to your neighbor’s house. As our Pipernet town of mobile devices grows, so do the number of neighbors who might have a copy of your book. And the more potential copies there are available, the more secure the book is.

That’s what our new internet will allow you to do too: spread your personal files on devices across the world, so they’re completely safe from bad actors manipulating or deleting them.


All copies of your files in a well-known, hackable location = RISKY!

Files copied and distributed to multiple locations = SAFE!

Problem 2:

No Privacy

In order to check out books, you must have a library card — an ID that links back to your real world identity. That library card reveals all the books you’ve ever checked out, where you returned them, and whether they were returned on time.

The Problem

The tech titans collect data profiles on us too, and theirs are far more comprehensive. They amass thousands of personal data points by tracking our activities in both the online and physical worlds.

Users don’t own or control their own data, so it can be used against them. Take, for instance, Richard’s lawyer Pete Monahan, who had his probation revoked when the state retrieved his library records. Which was… probably a good idea. But for this metaphor’s purposes: bad that they can access that information!

On the web, our data profile is far more detailed, the laws around privacy even looser, and more freedoms are at stake. For example, what if Hooli sold your search data to an insurance company who then denied you coverage because you’ve HooliSearch-ed “kindest Palo Alto based Cardiologist” a few too many times?

The Solution

Replace library cards with anonymous identification cards which are impossible to connect to your real world identity. Instead of using a library card (linked to your name, address, etc.) to check out books, you would swipe a nondescript card (containing no personal details). Your activity would be tracked to keep the system stable, but your identity would not be siphoned and sold. I, for example, would no longer check out books as "Donald Dunn," but rather the nom de guerre "h3w0vbk37vpm."

That’s what our new internet will allow you to do too: use its apps and services without compromising your privacy.


Trading your identity and data for online services = RISKY!

Using services anonymously so nobody can target you = SAFE!

Problem 3:

Censorship and Manipulation

Because a town’s library is run by a small group of administrators, they could theoretically decide what books are available to its people. They could even decide to ban Birds of America, depriving young birders of Audubon’s elegant illustrations, pored over page by page under a government-issued blanket after lights out, giving you hope that even a slender-framed, shivering boy could grow to be as majestic as a Hooded Merganser.

The Problem

On the internet, multinational corporations can screen content, or even “adapt” their services to fit the local government’s requests. In both libraries and on the Web, we’re susceptible to data being censored or manipulated by intermediaries.

The Solution

A peer-to-peer lending system backed up by a fully public ledger, allowing you to send and receive books freely to anybody in the world without worrying about censorship or interference. Want to add Catcher in the Rye, Fahrenheit 451, or your controversial essay on Audubon’s coloring techniques? No problem, even if the town surrounded you with pitchforks to ban them, these vital texts would be available to share neighbor to neighbor, impossible to delete.

That’s what our new internet will allow you to do too: exchange messages and files directly with their intended receiver, disperse ideas and information free from threats of censorship.


Pushing all transactions through a central authority = OPPRESSIVE!

Establishing a peer to peer exchange system based on an immutable public ledger = FREE!
