it was a novel idea and i'm sure it solves some problems but having scripting in a document format is simply has too high a price to pay. scripting does not belong in documents!
I'm still pretty firmly convinced that free market concepts really never got a fair shake in the U.S. in the first place.
until someone figures out how to make sociopaths act honestly, the free market will always be doomed to be governed by anti-competitive behavior.
is he wrong in saying that only having researching gender issues and only having researchers of only one gender may skew the research? what if this were two male researchers and a female rejected it for "ideologically biased assumptions"?
GNU HURD still only runs in 32-bit mode. while you can run it on a 64-bit processor, you lose all the cool tricks you can do on 64-bit processors, especially when it comes to virtual machines.
while the UK has their issues, this issue is all but settled in the US. the Open Financial Exchange defines a way to interface with banks. the problem is getting software that can do this with ease.
hmm... the filters says not to use so many caps because it's like "YELLING".

the Department of Defense was previously named the Department of War for a good reason.
smaller companies care about data privacy just as much as big ones do
so they care deeply until you ask them to spend money at which point they will do the minimum needed to avoid being sued. gotcha, they're directed by sociopath.
even within that, the threat passes right through hackers again.
when someone shoves you into a pit of snakes, are you angry at the snake that bites you?
The danger the NSA presents is largely symbolic and philosophical.
this is not quite true. the NSA is a HUGE threat while they are currently focused on hacking/spying on Pakistan, they have undermined many technologies that leave everyone vulnerable.
Arimaa is a two-player strategy board game that was designed to be playable with a standard chess set and difficult for computers while still being easy to learn and fun to play for humans. Every year since 2004, the Arimaa community has held three tournaments: a World Championship (humans only), a Computer Championship (computers only), and the Arimaa Challenge (human vs. computer).
seriously, slashdice, some reference would be nice sometimes.
