Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
No, it's more important get people out of danger first. You don't discuss how to put out a fire while people are burning inside.
Who taught you how to fight fires? You not might discuss INSTEAD of acting but you definitely discuss BEFORE you run in and get trapped yourself. "Hey, Chief, this wall looks like its going to collapse! Let's go through the back door instead."
Plus a little discussion can lead to a great benefit overall: the firefighters & bystanders stay safe. Some go in to do the rescue of those already in danger, some stay back in case the rescues get trapped, still other fight the fire so it doesn't spread and put the neighbors in danger, etc.
44. Rob MaldaFounder, Slashdot.org In 1997, Rob Malda (aka CmdrTaco) created Slashdot, the original blog with prioritized news content discussed in posts by snarky (and often highly technical) readers. In fact, the original news story often serves as a mere jumping off point for the site's meaty comments and discussions (fodder for links to more news stories). Even if you prefer Digg (see #32), Techmeme (see #38), Technorati, or some other news aggregation blog, don't forget that it all started with Slashdot. Authors and editors still consider it a badge of honor when their news story is "slashdotted," though increased competition from other sites has stolen a bit of Slashdot's thunder."
'Data on several sites maintained by the operators of Texxors.com suggests that Google may be manipulating the profits webmasters receive from Google's Adsense program. Our analysis shows statistical evidence that as a website becomes more popular, it receives less earnings per click (EPC) from Google Adsense. Since the EPC is determined by Google's algorithms prior to the ad being served to a page, this suggests that Google may be intentionally or unintentionally manipulating EPC to increase their profit and/or Adsense participation. The method appears to be similar to the "throttling" practices that landed online movie retailer Netflix in legal hot water last year.'
