The Mark of the Gay Fish

After legal pressures from Kanye West, the Coinye cryptocurrency developers have changed their image from this:

Oldye

to this:

Newye

Their trademark is now “The Gay Fish.” All to relinquish any likeness between that and Kanye West, of course. It’s quite fitting, don’t you think?

South Park fans everywhere will especially enjoy the reference to the “Fish Sticks” episode where Kanye West simply does not get that he’s being called a gay fish because saying, “I like fish sticks” sounds a lot like, “I like fish dicks.” Watch the full episode here!

I love that the developers now point out Coinye Coins as being a means for people to purchase “Fish Sticks For Their Mouths.” Ah, these Coinye people — they’ve a great sense of humour. They might even be the most adept trolls the internet has ever seen.

Update: The developers have given in and say Coinye is dead! Nooooooooo!

Info On Bitcoin

You’ve probably heard about Bitcoin by now. Maybe you’d like to know more about it. Well, I found this informative, not-too-technical presentation on Youtube by Stefan Molyneux, that covers some interesting details (see below). And if you want to go deeper, here’s a great article that gets technical. And I mean really technical.

Starting 2014 off with a Forum

I’ve been sick lately (Christmas present from my mom), but I’ve recovered enough in the last few days to set up a Google Groups forum for programming- and technology-oriented young folks like myself. That may be the only news I bring today, and so I’m sorry that I won’t link to this fancy new group on this blog. Friends, you know me, so just ask.
