You should be in management consulting. No offense.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Sounds in line with the original script title, "Adventures of Luke Starkiller, as taken from the Journal of the Whills, Saga I: The Star Wars"
And Hidden Fortress was an acknowledged influence. But it's not the same.
The remarkably humble unwashed masses, or is that sarcasm I detect there. Innovation throughout the vast majority of the historical record was very, very slow.
Well done! Anarchist principles incorporated into a philosophy of intellectual property. I did not expect that. (btw, I'm not being sarcastic.)
In that circumstance you directly benefit without patent enforcement. In the current market, that does not apply to any significant degree.
Yes, by mellenia. . . Do you intend to make all my points for me?
Of course, without strong ip laws there's no reason to innovate. Any suggestions? Clearly this debate belongs on a larger basis than the 1D, "stronger - weaker". How about a policy of "use it or lose it?"
Non-invariant is not the same as arbitrary.
I won't write a treatIse on the incompatibility of utilitarianism and categorical imperative if you don't try to tell me utilitarianism is obviously the only basis for ethics.
Sorry for posting to an old thread.
Interesting that I mentioned attempts at social engineering by the sword and you went strait for communism. Read a little history. The communists didn't invent the field.
You lost credibility at "organization of human societies can be completely arbitrary." if there's one thing humanity has learned from the political experiments of the last hundred years it is that humanity is not infinitely mutable. No matter how many you kill.
"Happiness is the only value" . . . I won't try to dissuade you of that. I likely won't get anywhere. But that is a perversion of an absolutist utilitarianism that is as mind bogglingly false to me as I'm sure it is self evident to you. Ethics is not so easy as you think.
Last night I was sitting on the couch watching an old 24 while using my iPad to run some quick calculations on my laptop through vnc and monitoring batch jobs on two servers with iSSH. Tonight I'm laying in bed reading the news and will soon drift off to sleep with an interesting lecture from iTunes u. I am seriously impressed with this device. Sometimes I objectively wonder why I'm as impressed as I am, but then the part of my brain that in childhood said "look puppy!" notices the iPad and I'm distracted again.
