I envision advertising in browser, kind of like NetZero dialup in the day except this will be achieved through DNS hijacking and http injection. Now they can target their ads to users no matter what they're doing on the web, whether they are paying for ad space on a site or not.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I catch your drift, but actually fiber to residents in NYC is not easy to come by. The surrounding areas are a different story (Long Island, Westchester, etc).
Verizon left the city for last, in their deal with the State of NY, which allowed tthem to circumvent all local laws/ordinances, for competition and right of way, so they could cheaply, quickly build out their high speed fiber optic network (for FIOS service). When they covered all the areas they wanted, it left little time for NYC, which was likely their intention all along, as it's not like you can just burry more fiber in the city. It requires an immense amount of planning and deals to link up your own city wide network, particularly for residential and business service.
That was a quick path to Godwin's Law. Congrats.
You are so far off it's not funny. Parents will continue to watch Netflix and Hulu not "TV"
First order of business:
EVERYONE STOP PREPENDING "CYBER" IN FRONT OF EVERYTHING. This is not 1997. Please eQuit using Cyber in so eMany eSituations.
It was Vint Cerf who said that, one the fathers of the 'net (he co-designed TCP/IP).
Essentially he thinks people should be printing their photos?! LOL
How about store your data in redunant storage systems, and regularly replace the storage medium (drives, flash, etc). And as technology updates (I/O etc) adapt it when you can. I have always seen data storage systems as living breathing systems that require regular maintenance, part replacement, etc. I have a box of every hard drive I've owned since 1994. They're all in anti-static bags (more than one hundred drives. That box is utterly impossible to pickup you need to use a dolly to move it. Anyway I've yet to comb through all of them, but I have them organized so that I hit the oldest drives first, over time. All the important stuff I want in my storage system.
But back to the OP of this article, I think it's an extremely easy task. Assuming the drive is intact and functioning that is. There's so many options (and the little USB and eSATA adapters are incredibly useful). I use them all the time. I have an eSATA dock that does SATA and IDE.
Very, very true. Over my life I've killed a few drives trying to use the power adapter in the field. Now I either bring a power supply with me, or bring it back to the office.
Lawrence Lessig was so seriously influenced by Aaron Swartz with his ideas and his question to Lessig, “How do you ever think you’re going to make any progress on these issues so long as there’s this corruption in the way our political system works?”
Lessig's response to this conversation was, “This was Aaron, this was the way he worked,” Lessig said. "It was never, ‘This is what you should do.’ It was, ‘What about this? Shouldn’t you be thinking this?’ And it made you recognize that if you wanted to be the person you thought you were, you had no choice but to yield.”
Personally I've supported MaydayPAC and have tried to help spread awareness of it. I do wish Tim Wu and Zephyr Teachout had won in NY this summer. However I'd actually rather see Tim Wu (the man who coined Net Neutrality) as the chairman of the FCC.
I was thinking about Al Swearengen too, when I saw the original submitter's name. Too funny.
To quote the GREAT Al Swearengen (slightly on-topic):
Every fuckin’ beatin’ I’m grateful for. Every fuckin’ one of them. Get all the trust beat outta you. And you know what the fuckin’ world is.
âoeBe curious. Read widely. Try new things. What people call intelligence just boils down to curiosity.â

Hey, don't knock the TSA––they're not completely useless: They have a VERY amusing Instagram feed.
I'd take John Oliver's approach to rebranding the NSA. He suggested "Mr Tiggles" with a pink background and smiling cat, to General Keith Alexander.
How about "Mr Tiggle's Friend, the Fuffy Bunny"
- All those tools built in the 70s for UNIX and ported / rewritten many times over the years.
- Also, Model M keyboards (even though I use my MBP15r for everything, I still need those keyboards).
- Atari 2600 - it just feels better than playing on an emulator.
- I suppose electricity and the wheel - two of the greatest inventions.
Seriously, how did this get promoted?
