Comment My network, my rules (Score 1) 39

Just throwing this out there: The Internet isn't a monolithic thing. It's a collection of small networks. Must I carry all traffic? Does that include spam? Obviously, also one man's trash is another man's treasure and nowhere is that more true than in speech. You have the right to speak. You do NOT have the right to be heard.

Comment The song of the Lotus-Eaters (Score 4, Insightful) 503

In a society as described (with essentially unlimited resources and energy) what will you do about the population explosion? Without warp drive to get to other star systems we'd end up like the Moties. Another Crazy Eddie utopia, not well thought out. Also, I doubt the vast majority of people would suddenly fulfill their potential and become rock star artists & scientists, achieving Great Things. Some would, but most will just partake of all that instantly available everything and disappear into the Holodeck, which presumably is also free. That future is more like Wall-E.

Comment Re:H1B-er here: my opinion on the subject. (Score 1) 636

FWIW, I, an American, was just hired by an American staffingcompany that as far as I can tell, seems to be run and populated by Indians. Nicest people you'd ever want to meet, if you can understand what they're saying. Personally I've never had a problem with the Indian people. The only thing is the accent barrier.
