... extrapolate social interactions onto non-sentient objects. Would you like me to:
1) Find some friends for you on facebook?
2) Order you some books on interpersonal relationships from Amazon.com?
3) Club CN over the head with a baseball bat, so he'll stop trying to shoehorn 'social' interactions into my goddamn UI.
(And, yes: This is a gross generalization, but not totally untrue.)
Lets double check your logic Dahamma:
Step 1) Pictures are posted
Step 2) Media makes a big deal out of it
Step 3) Less pictures are posted
Somehow, from this process, you assume step 2, despite occurring before step 3, has no causal relation?
Do you really think that the CEO and founder of Facebook, didn't know the implications of what is possibly the biggest feature launch so far this year?
Not to mention, setting 'his shit to private' as you so eloquently put it would contradict the mission statement of Facebook.
*Why yes, IAAFbE.
You sir are an idiot. Lessig is possibly the most knowledgable person on the planet regarding US Copyright law, especially in it's relation to fair use.
Your lecturing tone, in addressing Lessig, is only showing your ignorance.
protons != photons FTW
you sir are an idiot.
oh damn, did I just feed the trolls?
No, seriously, the absolute frequency doesn't matter worth shit.
It's the delta(frequency), or "band-width". Specifically fmax-fmin=bandwidth which is proportional to channel capacity.
That said, you can fit more X MHz channels into the spectrum @ 1 GHz than you can at 1MHz
Wherever photons = light?
2400 baud!?! You must be using the *new* Iridium modems
In my day we were happy with 600! And that was after walking 14 miles through the snow and cold to find a signal...
No UAV is capable of fighting a mannned air craft and winning.
Actually, the main limiting factor for the latest generation of manned aircraft is not the airframe, but the pilot.
I would imagine that a UAV could OWN a human pilot, just pull a 10G turn and then fire a missile where the F-22 will be. Done and done.
It's C. The cough_up_hairball() function has undocumented side effects, including all of he aforementioned.
Now, in C++, he could have just overloaded the "<<" operator to do all of that.
Well, at least it's better than cat implemented in Java:
AnimalInstance ourCat = new Cat
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
*sigh* Oh Java.
May she rot in hell for what she did to HP Labs.
Yes, it actually is good for something, albeit slow as old-school dialup.
The reasons you stated are exactly why I decided on electrical engineering instead of computer science, and my alma matter has one of the best CS dept's in the country.
It's incredible how many people think being able to stitch some crap together, likely barely-working and in Java, is a skill set these days. Without understanding the mechanics behind what your code is doing, what's the point? (Speaking of which, I've met "developers" who don't know what a pointer is. WTF?)
Albeit, it's not that often that I need to delve down to (or below) the opcode level, but it's sure nice to know that I can when necessary.
No offense, but if you're in disaster recovery mode, I don't think you're going to care about drive depreciation or random access. You don't pull your tapes in from off-site because someone deleted the e-card their mom sent them for christmas -- you pull your tapes when a meteor hits your DC and you don't have any other option.
