Only a few minutes from right now.
Maybe I'm just grumpy and old but the whole "Curated" thing is bugging me and seemingly came out of nowhere recently. It's a marketing move intended to lend an air of sophistication to stuff by making them think of museums or wine collections, but it's really all just "stuff that other people kinda like".
Now get off my lawn.
I just downloaded the app. It lets you listen in on various different college campuses in case your area is boring (it is). I did a brief, extremely unscientific survey of a few colleges, and I didn't see anything specifically racist, homophobic or whatever. What I saw was college kids being college kids.
Sure you're going to see a little bit of everything because there's a little bit of everything in society. I didn't see anything too bad, but I'm sure it's there. Political correctness and people trying to censor stuff like this are the problem. This is no different than a local (physical) bulletin board.
Hardly billions. The technology that goes into fibre lasers is very cheap and efficient. My guess is that this was made form mostly off the shelf components.
Maybe it *could* be made from off the shelf components - I have no idea. But I bet the government spent 100x that to develop their own customized (expensive) stuff...

Keyboard mashing can produce word patterns. If someone is mashing a keyboard and accidentally mashes "t" and "h", there is no magical force in the universe which quickly checks an English dictionary and stops the masher from mashing any button which would create a word ("the", for example). That's the thing about infinity - it makes the massively unlikely infinitely more likely. As long as something is not impossible, if attempted an infinite number of times, it is possible that it will happen.
If the universe is truly infinte, not only if something's possible will it happen, but it will happen an infinte number of times. Infinity gets...weird...when you start thinking about it.
Lighten up, Francis...
Yes, we all know there's a difference between the internet and the world wide web, but sometimes for the sake of convenient reference, the world wide web is just "the internet"...
