Linus has seemed to have weathered many storms and has gathered some wisdom and perspective missing from his earliest pronouncements. This was one of the best
I agree. This is one of the better/most-on-topic things I've seen on
No. A mutually agreed upon price is fine too. It just has to be agreed upon before the trip. Don't be so knee-jerky.
But things can go into the public domain after a time, which is what the post was referring to.
Well, I forgot to add that your Mickey Mouse Protection Act doesn't even apply here anyway. Unfortunately determining the details of what is/isn't public domain is still difficult: http://www.digitalnz.org/make-...

SpaceX are trying to do this with a barely throttlable ascent engine pushing a very light first stage. It can't hover before landing because thrust is too high. It has to steer by rotating the entire vehicle, which puts tight constraints on the landing timeline. I doubt that reliable landings can be achieved with this configuration. They may get one in 4. Something like that.
I mentioned the +/- zero thing in another comment elsewhere in this tree, actually! So we're all on board there.
It's not really that signless infinity is a contender for 'consensus' inasmuch as number systems which use signless infinity have utilities different from systems that have signed infinities, just like integer math continues to exist despite the 'improvements' of fractions and decimals.
