«This averages out to a shocking 215 kilowatt-hours (KWh) of juice used by miners for each Bitcoin transaction (there are currently about 300,000 transactions per day). Since the average American household consumes 901 KWh per month, each Bitcoin transfer represents enough energy to run a comfortable house, and everything in it, for nearly a week. On a larger scale, De Vries' index shows that bitcoin miners worldwide could be using enough electricity to at any given time to power about 2.26 million American homes.» #bitcoin #globalwarming

Argh. Just got into a "discussion" with an "open source journalist" claiming that (a) Facebook is "entirely open source" and (b) Linux is "only the kernel". Sometimes, I don't have time for this. :) #floss #opensource #opensourcesummit
