Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Actually, I just realized why ISPs (some of which are cable companies) are taking issue with net neutrality. In essence, it is their attempt to bolt on their existing business model to the Internet. With existing channels, Comcast & Verizon generate revenue off both sides of the distribution. They make money off of us for paying for the bundled channel package into our home then make money again off the channel in the form of carrier fees. Yeah... now I'm seeing how these dots connect.
You can read for days on the internet about the problems with IQ, theory of multiple intelligences, et al and still get the gist that we can determine what makes us "smarter" than goats because of obvious physiological traits, but have little to compare us to each other on intelligence.
Personally, I don't know why they expected anything more than these unimpressive results. The biases where ripe for deconstruction.
But Dilbert provides us with the solution!
The mail servers they use for military/government that I've seen only support a few hundred MB on the host. They just got into the triple digits within the last year or so. That means everything else goes to a PST on your local HDD (which is encrypted). Suffice it to say that while this may look like a convenient lapse in context to commercial concepts for data retention, this happens enough that I'm willing to believe it if there are records to support these things
The best Mr. Jackson can expect that is that the shareholders concoct a way to pay minorities less than the current staff to save a few bucks on the bottom line.
^Seems legit to me
Not complaining about where I am (I like the travel), just pointing out that the reimbursement for my work and the logistics I've had to line up as a contractor, in my case, have far exceeded the cost of keeping the people who are responsible and proficient at this work on for another few days. Ultimately, all of this will be coming out of taxpayer dollars. While a drop in the ocean, I like to keep high standards. I can only assume I'm not the only contractor having to take on additional roles.

When these guys set their sights on something they want, they'll get it as long as no laws exist to explicitly prevent them from making it happen. PRISM is just the next generation domestic surveillance. The next time we hear about it, I'm sure it will be called... I don't know...Looking Glass. The question is: will this be the time when the people finally stand up and say "enough"?
And what have we had "enough" of? None of this in the past has translated into meaningful legal reformation because this is a horrendously hard area to debate.
