Right, this is the woman that thinks that NOBODY should EVER use ANY animal byproducts, except when it comes to her life-saving medicine made from animal byproducts because she fights for animals and therefor is the only exception of the rule she wants to impose on everyone else. She is the fucking dictionary definition of "hypocrite".

I love Stallman, but I was very disappointed in this talk. I had the crazy idea that I'd watch it with my girlfriend to show her some Free software ideals, but I don't think Stallman did a good job here. He clears his throat in a strange way very often and he cut down his speech so much that a lot of the meaning is lost. I found myself mentally tuning out very quickly. I think I could do a better job of explaining his positions quickly to non-techies in an accessible way.

Newsflash: Not everyone likes the same things you do. I don't care for eating and I can't cook. Sure there's a lot of food that tastes good, but I could live without. To me, eating is like peeing: it's something I have to do to stay alive. If I was offered the choice to never have to eat or piss again, I'd take it. I'd love to drink the same thing every day and get the perfect mix of what my body needs. I also get much more pleasure from other activities, which I would have more time for. I just hope that Soylent really is as perfect as it's creator says it is.

+ - How Not to Design a UI: Slashdot Beta Site is a Train Wreck-> 1

iggymanz (596061) writes "As with Canonical's Unity and Windows 8, the majority of otherwise intelligent coders are completely out of their element when trying to make a user interface. They fly off on tangents, ignoring any user needs or input, making something understood and useable only to themselves. A bad UI is neither discoverable, learnable, efficient of space, nor capable of providing proper feedback to the user. With apologies, I link to the vilest and most aweful forum interface misdesigned by the minds of idiot-savants in full idiot mode, the Slashdot Beta Site."
