Williams F1 has been working on this technology for quite awhile now. It's definitely fascinating. This video shows the technology applications.

Porsche also used the same Williams tech for their endurance 911 GT3R.

Nothing really new to see here; another instance of racing tech trickling down to production vehicles.

I would rather the campus be located away from urban area. Less traffic, less driving...

Exactly! And living in the suburbs gives me the opportunity to tell kids to get off my damn lawn. The only lawn in Manhattan is the astroturf people bring out to let their dogs poop on.

So there's a link, but it is a little disingenuous to say he's suing to stop fracking. His suit (linked from TFA) is about the water tower. He doesn't want a high-rise water tower across the street.
He's actually ok with a low-rise water tower that he can't really see from his ranch.
So, over-react much, headline writer?

"That raises the possibility that the shrinking readership would eventually meet the expanding Beta suckitude, which emerges with a sudden blast of "fuck beta" comments. That black would allow any insightful commentary trapped in the black hole to escape, solving the infamous -1 Insightful paradox."

Rather than pull an Occupy, what can be done to focus and organize the action? What is the end goal: To revert entirely to the previous site, or to address the problems with the new site?"

I'm reviewing and getting comfortable with slashcode right now. I'm looking for volunteers to help with setup and running the site. If the site becomes profitable, I intend to hire from the pool of volunteers. If you've ever wanted to participate in a site like Slashdot, here's your chance! I'm particularly in need of people who can:
  • Set up and manage a high-traffic site (servers, load-balancers, data sites, &c)
  • Edit story submissions
  • HTML, CSS, and script creation/bugfix/repair

Contact me if interested John (at) AltSlashdot (dot) org"
