Submission + - Thinking about science causes moral behaviour

TheVelvetFlamebait writes: Can thinking about science causes moral behaviour? According to the Scientific American website,

Researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara set out to test this possibility. They hypothesized that there is a deep-seated perception of science as a moral pursuit — its emphasis on truth-seeking, impartiality and rationality privileges collective well-being above all else. Their new study ... argues that the association between science and morality is so ingrained that merely thinking about it can trigger more moral behavior.

Submission + - Vista the new Win95?

TheVelvetFlamebait writes: "Ed Bott from zdnet.com writes in his blog that Vista isn't the new Windows ME, rather the new Windows 95.

So does Windows Vista deserve the Me2 label? After a careful look back at my Windows history books, I see Vista heading down a different path. In fact, I'm struck by how similar Vista's path so far has been to the one that Windows 95 traveled.
He also goes on to make some small predictions based on his theory about Vista's future. What do you think? Does anyone else have any mid-to-long-term predictions for the latest Microsoft leviathan?"
