is the gradual and accelerating erosion of Internet freedom. On a recent trip to China I got a hint of what the future will be like. We all know that Google and many other sites are banned in China, but we understand the knock-on effects? Many sites, including our own, use Google services of one sort or another, a choice that renders them broken in China. A banning here, a closed reddit there, a tax in the windy city; slowly the noose tightens on the glory that was our network.
Actually, experience for pilots is measured by hours flown and time in type for specific regimes, not ratings. There are many high-time private pilots and low-time commercial pilots.
Seriously? There are six hundred thousand some odd private pilots. You'd ban them from the air? Good thing that the FAA disagrees with you. Perhaps you've heard that they are expanding the franchise, not tightening it, via the Sport Pilot license?
That's true, but perhaps not for the reason(s) you imagine. I simply have no desire to fly in instrument conditions. Give me lovely weather or I'll chose something else to do. I fly for fun, not for transportation.
Actually I am a pilot, a private pilot, not a commercial or airline pilot. I am guessing that you are not or you would have understood the thrust of my comments; I didn't write show me conditions that require instrument skills. The thread is on the dangers of HUDs dividing attention in visual environments, not the usefulness of instruments in IFR--instrument flight rules--conditions.
Show me a pilot that has to rely on their instruments and I'll show a pilot who can't fly.
Ain't it now.
My wife's 'vette has a hud in it and the first thing I do when I drive the car is turn the hud off. When flying the best advice is to keep your head 'out of the cockpit', in other words scanning the skies around you. New pilots' are always glued to the instruments, mature pilots eyes are focused outside except for quick scans of the instruments.
Zothecula writes: Cruising at speed down the highway with a heads-up display (HUD) constantly feeding data into your line of sight can make anyone feel like a jet pilot on the road; totally in control of your vehicle and primed to avert any potential danger that comes your way. However, recent studies by the University of Toronto show that the HUD multi-tasking method of vehicle piloting may well not provide the extra margin of safety that we think it does. In fact, according to the researchers, it could be downright dangerous.

Didn't they just shutter google code?
I get this and would like to hire an older developer. The problem is that they are hard to find. Once upon a time one might have had success on alt.sysadmin.recovery. Today? How does one find older developers with web and *nix skills?
Why do scientists, who really ought to know better, confuse rounds numbers with significant milestones? Have we lost our command of even elementary statistics? John
While it may be true that the risks of genetic engineering are underestimated; it is also true that Mr. Taleb overestimates the risks of everything. Into the hidey hole!
