Not like those corporation give a rat's ass about the constitution or citizen liberties.
Hell, their "stalker economy" business model is partially responsible for enabling the NSA. We can expect them to do everything they can to minimize their exposure on this problem, even if it makes things worse for us regular citizens. It is just serendipity that our interests and their interests are kind of sort of aligned for the moment like they were aligned on SOPA but you don't hear a peep from them about the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) treaty negotiations.
I live in Brazil.
I wasn't talking about civilized countries. I was referring to the United States.
Funny, of course, but do you have any comment about Brin's definitions?
How about how they relate to the real world.
I wonder how people in different parts of the world would see this?
In theory, sensors attached to our bodies (and appliances such as the fridge) will send a stream of health-related data -- everything from calorie and footstep counts to blood pressure and sleep activity -- to the cloud
No fucking way. My sensors will send my data to my computer in my house where no one else has access to it. Any automated analysis will be done on my computer where I control who can see the results. Any other design is nothing more than putting the band-wagon ahead of patients' interests.
They get the time extended. Again and again.
So your point is that the concept of a shared culture is something the moneyed interests don't believe in. BFD.
In "Earth" David Brin tried to come up with 3 culturally neutral definitions for sanity. One was the ability to be satiated - to say you have enough of something, and stop. Another was the ability to evaluate how things are going, and change your plans and actions based upon events and results. I forget the third. I once went back and located it again, trying to remember it. I forgot it, again.
I'm not sure where you're from, but I can speak for the US. We tend to be a fairly individualistic nation (still) and the idea of something being part of the culture as you mentioned is a real hard sell here.
Ever read the US constitution?
Does, "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times" ring a bell?
What do you think happens after a "limited time?"
No, your point was that limiting free speech created the nazis.
How nice of you to redefine my point for me. Clearly the event that happened 80 years ago was the creation of the nazi party -- what they actually did after their power was entrenched is not something even worth referring to. Gas chambers, holocaust, world war II, etc not even worth the effort to write about.
However religion is your choice, so it's a perfectly valid basis for criticism, especially if you choose a stupid one.
So any criticism about something the person can change is not bigotry. How convenient for all the assholes of the world.
metric paper sizes are the correct ones and everything else is stupid.
What's a "metric"?
