.info has been around since 2001. Is that really new fangled? (Or is this just a Slashdot dupe from 2001 lol).
Hal Finney -an ALS sufferer- did the ultimate Ice Bucket challenge with liquid nitrogen last week (Aug 28, 2014) when he was cryopreserved after passing away from ALS:
You are right, the whole "notability" standard at Wikipedia has been f'd up for years. Someone notable today, may be much less notable than someone from 100 years ago, but the person from a century ago might not be as notable to people today. Instead of trying to build a repository of accurate knowledge and information, Wikipedia is more concerned about building up fiefdoms of power for the editors and managers, which is too bad.
Kind of like all the systems, procedures, and protections that prevent this type of thing at the NSA.
And the population of New York State is....19,651,127 (2013 est).
Anyone who wants to have even more centralized data storage of personal, private information just doesn't care about data security.
They just need to register ONE of them to reestablish contact. They might even be able to use "domain tasting" to register a bunch and then cancel within 5 days.
"astronauts used in trips to the moon in the 1960s."
Just one point about the summary, not just the 1960s, there were more trips to the moon using Apollo in the 1970s than in the 1960s:
1960s Apollo moon trips: 8, 10, 11, 12 (2 landings 11, 12, and 2 circumnavigations)
1970s: 13, 14, 15, 16,17 (4 landings, not Apollo 13 obviously)
(There were other Apollo missions that were not moon trips, 7, 9 for example that were in earth orbit, Apollo-Soyuz etc).
It has been going on a lot longer than Nixon. Look at FDR and the court-packing scandal for example. Look at the Commerce Clause cases which eliminated the concept of "enumerated powers."
You are right, kind of like Critter 592 (ValuJet). Went into the Everglades in Florida like a lawn dart.
Ask the USA too. "Long term stability" and "dollar" do not go together for many decades now.
He was storing them at Gox?
OR they did use it in this case, realized it wasn't a "real" threat and so did not pass along the information to the local police.
We've been hearing this on Slashdot for 3.5 years now and during the time bitcoin has gone from well below dollar parity, to here.
This sounds like a copy and paste from 2011 on Slashdot.org. It is a good thing that people listened and didn't buy in at $1 or $3 or $0.10.
Don't forget to add things like LISP, snobol, prolog, Pascal, Modula-2, SML, APL etc.
