Agile/Extreme programming is the alternative medicine of software development. It's a collection of mostly unrelated and sometimes contradictory concepts, the only common thing between them being lack of widespread adoption. Like alternative medicine, it has components that are useful in some circumstances. These give unearned credibility to Agile, even though they were there well before it. The problem is also similar, these components are taken to the extreme and are claimed to be universal solutions to every situation. For example, acupuncture is useful to ease pain, but no matter what the charlatans say it doesn't help against cancer. Similarly, frequent testing during development can be useful, but test-driven development is taking it to the extreme, and it doesn't work at all in for example web development. And like alternative medicine has homeopathy, Agile/Extreme has their own set of ideas that are total bullshit like pair programming.
What makes you think i read it?
Just because a story has some connection to Facebook doesn't mean it's about technology.
If keeping our chip production costs more than losing it, then overally this is a bad investment. You could argue that electronics manufacturing is a strategic sector, but in this case we should simply make it a rule to only accept European electronics for security sensitive apllications. That would create a market for domestic production, and keep it alive at a much lower price.
km/ks is the same as m/s
No, I just pointed out that not even here in Europe do we use full metric.
All my stuff is in order. I know exactly where my stuff is, and I can find anything I want within seconds. But to an outside observer it still looks like a trashheap.
Actually, it should be in km/s, as h isn't SI.
Well if it doesn't that this finding has quite a shaky basis, so I would think that it's appropriate.
This is one time where a car analogy has left me understanding less.
Maybe shooting up a bunch of small unmaneuverable satellites wasn't such a good idea, it just makes the space junk problem worse.
The USSR observed the landing site, but there's no proof that the landing modules contained humans.
So do you think children should be free to perform unsupervised and potentially dangerous experiments in school? I agree that the reaction was overblown, but she did deserve a slap on the wrist, not a congratulation.
Exactly, the main problem with OTP isn't that you have to store the key in memory, but that sending it to the other party is complicated. These guys have completely missed the point.
Open source is about copyrights. This is a patent. What relevance does a patent bear on whether a piece of software is open source?
