Too late. We already did it voluntary.
Even better: Return from the Stars.
As an aside IMHO that article the other day asking about where is decent SciFi nowadays seemed to miss the point that for a good show character interactions and growth are what makes it good and that technology by itself is merely a prop.
In MY humble opinion, character interactions and growth makes a good space opera (SyFy), not SciFi.
Then one day a programmer notices the dependence on the uninitialized value, which would clearly produce a severe failure if fed the correct inputs, and he thinks "surely this hasn't been running for thirty years deployed on hundreds of thousands of nodes, and never triggered a fatal anomaly" and yet there it is.
And then it breaks simultaneously in the whole world.
So strong, that you are willing to go to jail for a few hours, at the very least.
Nope, now you can be accused of terrorism and held for a month just as an example or slapped with a nice fine of several thousand dollars for costs of detainment.
The point is, had he grown up in any other area in the country, this guy would be stocking shelves at Wal-Mart and complaining about "the system."
What can we say about NSA when such a guy can go in, take many secrets and publish them while successfully escaping wrath of The President?
Yes. You have this effect in double slit experiment, there are places where waves cancel out and you have dark place. The problem is that it's almost impossible to generate an inverse waveform from source other than the one which generated your photon. Typically it's done by splitting one waveform.
On the other hand I post very rarely and sometimes I have mod points even when I don't post. Maybe somehow slashdot also sends mod points to wrong users?
It helped that you had VERY limited set of possible configurations.
I'm not an american, fifth amendment doesn't apply to me. Also terrorism trumps all amendments. Maybe it's the law, but what use has your lawyer when you can't see him when you're in gitmo and nobody want's to even admit that you are held there?
Yeah, then service provider gets secret order that it has to provide data about user AND continue sending those emails. What, can't they ask that? Who will prevent them when you can't even talk to your lawyer about this....
I don't believe in life before coffee.
There is no reason to send your email credentials to RIM
Push notifications about new email?
Agreed. Since when did some old guys ignorant opinion become news for nerds, especially when such opinions flow almost 24/7 in all major newspaper opinion sections...
It's good to know your enemy. I WANT to know when someone wants to take my series of tubes away.
