If I remember correctly, the second matrix movie showed a closeup of a terminal where someone was running nmap with sensical command line arguments. No, it didn't make it any better.
But what good is it, really, without the built-in ability superimpose moronic LOLcats style text on them.
Yeah, lots of universities use it for a lot of things, like scientific and cultural heritage images... they serve the images up, if need be, through the proprietary lurawave image server... not a great solution from a systems perspective, but it's what they like.
Personally, I think the lack of widespread adoption makes it a serious preservation concern.
was waiting in line at the damn post office to mail the application in.
"No matter how much we suck, we still don't ComcastTimeWarner suck. Yet."
"the Internet core is stupid, and the edge is smart"
That is true on SO many levels.
The people that point out existing technologically superior software solutions are being unforgivably obtuse.
Of course there are existing open source and commercial options out there, that make this high school student implemented project technologically obsolete; there are also existing craftspeople and professionally run woodworking shops that make the products in wood shop class obsolete, as well as many tailors, restaurants, fashion schools, and culinary schools that crush what home-ec classes teach... Not to mention the many science-oriented-businesses with technology and products that dwarf the technology that you would find at a high school science fair. See it for what it is: a learning experience!!
If there was some alternate dimension where I had had a chance to work on a project like this in high school, I probably would not have gotten kicked out for boredom fueled truancy, and would have worked my way into a decent comp-sci program at a college rather than working my way up in my 20s through shitty tech support and lower level IT positions... I Would have been making my current, totally decent software dev salary YEARS before I actually earned it in this dimension.
Geeze, you sure got me.
The fact that you don't have the attention span to read an academic essay is not my, or the author's fault. It also doesn't give a gram of weight to your criticism.
That essay was written before Basquiat was popular. Maybe you should read it.
This is exactly the argument that the essay is making. It was written by a well-known feminist philosopher. Maybe you should read it before claiming that it is incorrect.

Poor analogy... they do have the right to display every ad on every page that you access.
Things are changing, but from a historical perspective, this cannot be ignored.
"The fact of the matter is that there have been no supremely great women artists, as far as we know, although there have been many interesting and very good ones who remain insufficiently investigated or appreciated; nor have there been any great Lithuanian jazz pianists, nor Eskimo tennis players, no matter how much we might wish there had been. That this should be the case is regrettable, but no amount of manipulating the historical or critical evidence will alter the situation; nor will accusations of male-chauvinist distortion of history. There are no women equivalents for Michelangelo or Rembrandt, Delacroix or Cezanne, Picasso or Matisse, or even, in very recent times, for de Kooning or Warhol, any more than there are black American equivalents for the same. "
From a brilliant essay on the matter:
