This stuff is highly experimental, and success is not ensured at all. Still, with no hands, this is decidedly worth the try. Will also be very interesting to see how much sensation and dexterity he will develop.
Having reviewed some security-critical "industrial" Java code, I am inclined to agree.
It is very old news. And even when it was news, it was no surprise to experts. People need to see a catastrophe close enough that they get scared in order to invest into security. Because if they do not, they can get rich faster, or so they think...
Isn't it obvious? Drone-killer-drone! Just arm it with some explosives and even the FBI will be happy, as they will have their next "terrorist"!
You can fire 40mm projectiles from a man-portable weapon, see for example grenade-launchers. Of course, the projectile-velocities are a bit different from ordinary bullets or firing these things would probably kill the shooter...
And humor-challenged person #3.
Maybe I should have called it "Simplistic Query Language", but I bet even that would have some people not get it.
Humor-challenged person #2.
I do not actually agree. It is a bit more complex though: Any good engineer and technician is responsible for delivering good work and if the working conditions do not allow that to leave and look for a different job. That is called "professional ethics". Either these coders have no such ethics or they are bad coders that cannot easily get a different job. Hence the coder is a central and critical part of the problem. I agree that in many cases, management will also be a central and critical part of the problem, and in order for something to be really screwed up (as, for example hackable car drive control systems) it is always several involved parties that have to screw up badly. But the coder is in no way off the hook here.
I think this person has some pretty bad mental defects that make him do this with compulsion on the level of an automaton. Maybe his psychiatrist recommended communicating with other people or something like it.
Fortunately, the style is an immediate warning to any non-insane person as to what is going on here.
Oh, yes, that happens sometimes. There are also people that really understand what they are writing by way of code without any coding education, because they are bright, educated and careful. It is rather rare though, and the opposite is the norm, i.e. people with respective coding education messing it up.
In to that huge low-quality-low-wages job market, yes, where everybody is easily replaced and a way out is not present unless you accept most of your skills getting completely worthless.
I agree. But one essential part of the problem are bad coders. Of course, something this bad can only happen if multiple central parties have completely failed to do their jobs properly.
I would mod this "insightful" if I had not already commented.
Be too much of a wimp and lose out on experiencing the world. Many in this generations seem to be trying hard for that.
They think making laws and demanding things changes reality. It does not. It can lead to people presenting themselves as complete idiots to the world though.
My apologies for that.
