ACM : an entity that lives in a dream that it represents any authority or exerts any respects in its field :s, no one gives a F.

Women and Men :s people should learn to stop using that card :s, come on, if you sucked at CS or if there are not enough women around in CS, it probably is because the women were interested in doing something else, now stop trying to find excuses and get on with your life.

ACM never helped me learn anything when i started.
ACM's article usually asked for fees to access their documents/papers.


Thanks to the above two, i had always in my head tagged ACM and ieee as associations of people who are not really interesting in perfectioning the art, but rather making money out of it. So yes, i viewed them both as dangers to the art of computing.

lol what the f*ck!
I quote from the Microsoft research paper:
"In this paper, we investigate a novel approach to classify the difficulty of code comprehension tasks using data from psycho-physiological sensors. We present the results of a study we conducted with 15 professional programmers to see how well an eye-tracker, an electrodermal activity sensor, and an electroencephalography sensor could be used to predict whether developers would find a task to be difficult."

15 developers is enough to reach a conclusion???
Note that the paper is about investigating the difficulty of code comprehension, not how bug are introduced, while it may be indirectly linked, it is not for a fact linked, it is just an assumption, there's no such direct relationship.
Also each developers codes differently and requires different working conditions, and feels different emotions while coding, how the heck can they assume that EEG results will show any similarity?

This is a bullshit research wasting time and money. Probably some kind of marketing feat that will be used to claim Microsoft no longer makes bugs in its code or just some sort of conspiracy to turn programmers into zombies hooked to machines.

Lol blame the programmer for the bug when bugs occurs for a lot more reasons than just one human doing the coding, building a program is more than just about a programmer.

Anyways, it is a research paper :p, everyone should bow down and say "amen you are right" :s. Stupidities

Extremely great news. Happy for many of my closed ones, i hope that this could lead to a potential solution to fix type 2 diabetes, i have a lot of familly members having this, despite regulating food intake and doing regular exercise. I just hope pharmaceuticals companies do not manipulate things to create a drug that one should be dependant on forever but instead create a one X number of dose fix it all thing :).

What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away.
