Expect a knock on your door shortly.
I wish there was "Like" on slashdot! For this, and for Jeremiah Cornelius' "Have you got a 27B / 6 ?"
It is spelled "Nazis".
Tickets to the space elevator.
When will I be able to buy one?
Wow, let me guess: you have got to be Greek!
Then how about you also lose all your property rights by storing your valuables in safe deposit boxes in banks?
Rome is the capital of Italy, not Greece. You must be thinking of Athens. Other than that, you are right.
Sorry, the above AC is me.
Because the time has come.
You go ask Galileo Galilei the same question.
Or, better yet, Giordano Bruno.
Check this out: it is "athEIst", not "athIEst".
Okay, check this out: it is "athEIsts" not "athIEsts". It is really simple. The word has to end in "ists" just like any other word for people of some "ism".
WTF? are you nuts? are you dreaming stuff up? 1. Most of the USA's "founding fathers" were not religious. 2. Nothing was grounded in any god. 3. Throughout the history of humanity, whenever something was grounded in some "god", that was precisely what made it easy for goverment to control it.
More or less everyone connects to the internet through an ISP. Besides basic internet connectivity, most ISPs also offer webmail, POP3 mail, and some free web space, which most people never use. These ISPs are the ideal type of companies to host nodes of the Decentralized Social Network (DSN): they can thus provide more value to their customers, they get to route a decent amount of traffic internally, (many people's friends are on the same ISP,) they gain revenues from advertising, and they get the chance to advertise their services to their own customers and to their social network friends. (It is kind of funny how, once you have signed up with an ISP, you hardly ever interact with them in any way other than paying the bills. When was the last time you saw your ISP's home page? I am sure your ISP would like the opportunity to interact with you every once in a while.)
Many people would sign up with a DSN out of sheer detestation towards facebook and Zuck's annoying face. I, for one, would. Of course, in order to be successful, a DSN would have to integrate with facebook, meaning that my updates should be automatically cross-posted to facebook, and I should be able to view my friends' updates from within my DSN account. With a bit of luck, over time, facebook would turn into nothing but just one of the nodes of the DSN.
