I can't imagine the identities of a bunch of ex-cons are that valuable.
You only need to learn one oo procedure based language. All others are just a book exercise.
The problem with that is most people think because they can program in that language they understand the paradigm.
There are tons of c++ and c# programmers out there who think object orientation is only about turning UI controls into objects. All other code is more of a mix of bad OO and imperative programming.
I would revise your original statement to you only need to learn one oo language well. Same for functional languages. You are have to know a language well to understand the paradigm.
I just don't agree with him. Bitcoins have some serious issues. If someone develops a digital currency that addresses those issues and makes them more practical for every day use I support it. If I had to wait for 10 minutes to get my starbucks coffee paid for I'd probably decide to just pay cash. I also wonder how quickly the blockchain would grow if bitcoin became more mainstream. Anonymity is also an issue. I think competition between digital currencies will only make them more practical and robust. That can only be a good thing for digital currencies in the long run. If progress is not made digital currencies will never replace conventional ones.
I think you missed the point of the article. Demand is far easier to manipulate. Cost incentives that match demand to supply will work if you scale the cost dynamically to match the instantaneous capacity of the grid. Turn a factory on full power when the wind is blowing and slow it down when the wind isn't.
and catch a ride with those SpaceX guys? I'd rather deal with the Russians.
Russia has a stock market?
I'd install Eucalyptus and develop an application. Then when my lease ran out I'd redeploy it on AWS.
I was just thinking "I don't own enough expensive single-use gadgets whose meagre functionality could be replaced by a few lines of code."
Yeah and this one comes with it's very own useless HD h.264 video decoder and HDMI port.
Reminds me of running instances on AWS. AT&T has no financial incentive to reduce these surprise charges. Seriously there should be a hard cap that we can set. Sure we are responsible for these charge, but most of the times naive consumers are not aware. Amazon clearly posts the prices of their instances, but it's not uncommon to get a $30,000 bill accidentally due to some developer testing out their application by spinning off instances. You get charged for the whole hour when an instance starts on AWS and things can show up on their accounting system weeks later.
A real time system for monitoring usage should be mandated by law and sufficient warning should be available. A data roaming plan should automatically be applied if it will save you money. Most importantly we should have the ability to set a cap.
Yeah we know....Did you even read the summary?
What are you smoking?

My theory is that any legislation will just put the covert back into intelligence gathering.
You think the NSA really needs customs to help them spy on US citizens? They really don't have to be that clever about it.
The answer is simple. Cloud based medical records and disallow local caching. A PC is disconnected, no problem. It scales and it allows you to consolidate security. I never understood why we trust IT staffs with medical record security. You really need a Dev Ops team for that.
