This is what I've found to be frightening about his work. I 'get' a lot of it. No drugs, no altered states. It just makes sense to me.
This worries me sometimes.
Seconded. I'd mod you up if I could. If this does pass we'll essentially be nationalizing the newspapers. Didn't we decide that that was a bad idea with the phone company? Of course, given how that turned out I'm not certain if that's a condemnation or an endorsement.
We could certainly do worse than the BBC though and we likely would.
Ahh, yes, and I could have said they're people once more and made a chorus line.
That's modern patent law for you. There's a reason why most patent-holding trusts are owned by lawyers.
"Hey nice idea there, it'd be a shame if something unfortunate happened wouldn't it?"
True that. Our local DSL provider is CenturyLink which is just the old Verizon crap after a couple of name changes. Verizon was famous locally for delivering service that failed from 3 pm to 1 am and always when it rained. They recently got a friend to change their service and we ended up having to go through a mess to get them to drop their charges when it failed to work.
In this area cable beats them easily not just in speed but service and reliability. I really don't know how they stay in business unless its just by taking advantage of the 'Internet is always flaky' crowd. Apparently they decided that the old name change and run an ad campaign routine is more profitable than fixing the network. That's why we left them years ago.
