That this is cool. Anything that will help humans identify the source of their ultimate demise is a good thing.
I for one welcome our automated driving overlords. I can sleep on my way to work. I can work on my way to work. I can eat on my way to work. I can text or call someone on my way to work. But by the time we get all the AI worked out I won't need to go anywhere to work. I can work from my home or anyplace in the world for that matter. Robotics can really help humans do a lot of crappy jobs and activities. But I often wonder why we insist that robots do our drudge work the way we do it. Why not just change the way things are done so drudge work is eliminated all together?
Not surprised. I actually expected this was the case. But that doesn't mean I condone it. And your short retort to the story only serves to diminish the issue. This is some serious shit. And everyone should be outraged by this. And outraged at teh NSA overall. But one wonders what other organizations, those that are less well know, are up to. Organizations like the NRO.
What does the NSA mean? Lay offs? Ship to Guantanamo? Make disappear? They can't let all those folks just wander the streets with the knowledge they have. Can you truly leave the NSA and remain alive or condemned to a life in hiding?
Driving in the Bay area is horrid. Getting bus service to and from work would be great. Could get some extra sleep too.
That is so 1990's.
Even women. Sure they complain when guys do it but they like to look as well. So the more hot chicks at these shows the better.
Have to agree. Obama is actually complicit with all this so should be brought up on charges. In fact Obama more than others since he explicitly states he will uphold the U.S. Constitution when he takes the job.
Man that was a funny write up. Giving the keys to the kingdom to young upstarts and relatively new employee is hilarious. Every work with these kids? They can't balance their own checkbooks without their mothers' helping. And they expect these same kids to spend millions of dollars on their pet projects. Sure, let it happen. We could always use all kinds of mods to World of Warcraft. The facebook and twitter models are not the norm in the world of business.
With drones doing the surveillance and now automated speeding tickets cops won't have anything to do but go after real criminals. You would think the police unions would be getting out ahead of this stuff and start fighting it asap.
Does it piss you off or bum you out that they keep dogging and putting down Babylon 5 on the show "Big Bang Theory?"
When is the information going to be published in an easily accessible place for the public? The problem with all these data leaks is that they rarely make it to the main stream population. For this information in particular, will
/. post names and banks from this data?
Seems the cops in Boston have a lot of free time these days. Time to save the city some money and reduce the police workforce a bit.
He will absorb what he/she can and then with the new found skills find a better job someplace else. You will be called back at which point you can raise your rate. Everybody wins!
When dealing with information like that presented in the original article one should always ask, "What is gained by debunking the notion of earth being seeded by life instead of life fully developing on this planet without external help?"
