World Trade Center Floorplans

Because of today’s significance (and because it will be my future office in a few months!) I was reading up on the new One World Trade Center. It’s got a pretty interesting tapering shape, so I thought it would be fun to do an “MRI” style flythrough of some of the floorplans I could find online.

Slide your mouse from left to right across the images below to see a fun little animation.

Messing With a Bitcoin Scammer

It’s been a while since I last messed with an online scammer, but today when I received a known phishing attempt I decided to have a little fun.

The correspondence didn’t last particularly long and I doubt I’m getting a final response, but here’s the full conversation below. I also reported the email address to Google as a phishing attempt. (My responses are in green, the scammer is in red.) Enjoy.

Ok cool. I’m getting the payment ready now. Just to confirm, it will be .4 BTC ($233 USD), correct?
Also, one more quick question about the bitcoin payment… I’m going to send the money to 1HQ8jcCAmYE5pWxt5T16Xx5GJ3bjiPmKg5, but what address should I send it from?
Thanks!

Sorry to bombard you with questions…
How much postage do you recommend? (I want to make sure the transaction goes through but don’t want to waste any money…)

Ok, thanks. I’m about to send the payment (see attached image for proof) but I have one more question – can you wait until Monday to publish the article? I’m going to be traveling with spotty internet this weekend and want to be available if any server issues come up.
Thanks,
Mike

A Bitcoin Haiku

Someone posted this lovely little poem on Bitcoin Megaphone yesterday. If you know how to use bitcoin, you should support the author. I’d love to see more poets and authors self-publishing on the site!
