Us humans are really good at killing things. If it is profitable we can use and abuse it until it is totally gone. Hurm why do I fear that some things do not change.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There used to be this concept of a contract. You agree to train them (plus uni) and they agree to work with you for 2/3/4 years in compensation. I believe the military still use this (at least in most of Europe they do. Business less so now)
It is silly to spend $100,000 a year . But you do not have to. That is silly money. Colleges in the US are wow..silly. Many of the jobs in It or recruitment or sales or whatever the fuck you wish are hard to be good at but there are lots of people who can do it and excel (degree or not)
Sort of put your money where your mouth is and sponsor those you need.
An encyclopedia is never authoritative. It is an overview. It provides references for you to follow. It is an entry point to the subject you looked up. It is never the be all and end all. There is a reason why Wikipedia has a no original research clause.
They can all be smart. The one who figures it out is remembered.
Built by smart people and less smart people and those who work in factories. Who is to say how smart any of those people are?
It is known that those who designed it were smart. Those who built it may or may not be smart.A thousand people brute forcing it are unlikey to break a code. A couple of people who know can use a thousand people to build a machine that can.
Have you seen how much it costs to become a graduate of anything in the US?
Perhaps the High tech companies should start training people. Even starbucks can train people to make coffee. Coding to the standard these companies seem to want is not that expensive and they may earn some loyalty.
Acctually it would be quite funny to have to use a code editor similar to wordperfect just to have the "display codes F4" popup to show the hidden meaning of all the whitespace
Part of the concept of writing is to make meaning unambiguous. It is a very hard problem even in mathematics which is pure in and of its self (unlike spoken language). Over thousands of years it was figured out how basic algebra could be communicated well. How precedent worked. How to present it without ambiguity (more complex math still has specialized peculiarities) and now someone wants to fiddle with that using hidden characters? Do they even know how many non visible characters are in Unicode?
There are many such organisations.
Be careful though as many have many more than one side to them. The lobbying is not necessarily what joe public thinks it is and is not necessarily what the companies paying into it think it is. The NRA is a prime example.
Why do politicians get good pensions and health care and if high up security for decades after they have left office? Hrmm.
That looks like a very very good return on investment
Bing. The bell rings and we have a winner. Not a very astute one as this is pretty much copypasta but sort of proves the point I suppose.
Also think of reducing the health care costs of older or retired soldiers. Hip/knee/shoulder replacements. They do not have to have been blown up of shot or anything violent.
Bones are not living. They are host to lots of living stuff but they are dead. There is lots of research and practice into building 3D frameworks for your body to grow back into. Not all three D printing is little plastic doodahs.
The manual does not even hint at why the experimental strong spaces may be a good idea. As far as I can tell they are a way to confuse people.
People do not learn arithmetic that way for a very good reason. You can't write it down reliably. I would claim that anything you cannot write down or write as plain HTML (as we are in the interweb era) is sort of broken.
