When Moore's law ends, there will be mostly multi-processor computers. The code will all be concurrent. You won't really want to go down ASM and code multi-threaded programs. You will use languages like Scala that have good abstractions like Actors.
You have the wrong cell phone company. Just go to one without caps.
What happens when Magnus plays the strongest computers? Can he win? What computers can he beat?
Jeremy Hammond talks about how white hat hackers actually sell zero day exploits to the highest bidder, how cyber-security is really cyber offense. The possibility that the government had Sabu set up the attack in an attempt to entrap Julian Assange is also discussed. (Hammond sabotaged that plan when he dumped the emails onto the Pirate Bay.)"

The ID thieves ruin your credit, so instead of applying for one credit card you apply to five since you keep getting rejected. Finally you wonder what's going on and you pay Experian for your credit report.
But the people who make profits don't want us to have free energy, they want to make profits. They certainly don't want to selflessly work toward that goal of free energy.
A not-for-profit corporation is an obvious exception. Google is for-profit. Google can only give away money if that ultimately helps profits.
But the suit I outlined would be legitimate and would win. Your first link is an opinion piece by a well intentioned lady who wishes corporations didn't have to maximize shareholder value, not a piece of law that states that they don't.
Your second link confirms what I have said. A corporation has to act in good faith to... maximize shareholder wealth.
If they don't focus on making money, their shareholders can sue them. Companies are there to make money, they can't be twisted into innovation factories. If they could we'd probably have free energy and plentiful drinking water by now.
Mod parent up!
Our system needs government-backed currency. It couldn't work without it.
Capitalism is complex and artificial system developed by man in the last thousand years. Money is artificial and doesn't exist without a government. The corporations that own most of the property are artificial and don't exist without the government. The whole system is artificial.
Maybe they should use their own methods. Maybe they should do studies on how to get teachers to learn what does and doesn't work. It seems like an awfully ironic problem for them to have.
You seem to think that because there is an upside, we don't need to be aware of all the consequences of greater automation. This is a broad article that engages in a nuanced discussion of the effects of automation. It seems clear that one of the effects is the elimination of certain types of jobs and that this will be painful for many. Few say we should eliminate technology for the sake of jobs, but anyone with any sense realizes there are effects that must be reckoned with.
But what about fat people who exercise and don't eat fast food. There's plenty of them.
