This might not be good advice at all, but why not try and get the development manager's job? That would probably inspire me a ton if I saw a weakness like that and ways to do a better. You've got some good experience under your belt and seem to understand the problem the company is facing. Hopefully, some people here who know more than I do can give you some more specific advice.
There's a niche to be filled with parent-friendly games and Microsoft has bought a great game franchise to fill it with. Well played.
A corollary to this is whether communication through any mechanically-assisted means should be defined as speech. I think this has a huge implication on copyrights. As we become more integrated with these devices, the line between what we say, think, and digitally transfer becomes gray. What if instead of describing a movie or song to someone, we're able to transfer our perfect memory of it directly to their memory?
So we're throwing a man in prison to keep one form of entertainment flowing? That seems backwards.
But it's more important for the government to protect one business model of one form of entertainment than this man's freedom.
Remote education such as the internet is very good at distributing materials and information. However, it is very bad at testing individuals' comprehension and understanding for a variety of reasons. Currently, Universities do both and they bundle the costs together in one large tuition package. I think a good solution going forward would be one that offers these two services separately.
I think you hit the nail on the head, but that's why I disagree with this article. Most nerds, believe it or not, realize the results of their personal choices as you do and don't irrationally point their frustration at innocent people. I think it's unfair to say that all nerds reach this irrational conclusion "as a matter or mental self-defense." I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but this is a sweeping generalization based on one crazy man's acts.
Really, slashdot? This comments gets a 5, Insightful? It's an unsupported assertion.
Redundant internet options are a good thing. This is a smart move by GM in the face of giant ISP mergers and poor net neutrality legislation.
Google has no interest in omitting data collection to mitigate other sites' security flaws.
I'm personally not going to buy a smartwatch until it can replace my phone. Once I have that, it's not much of a change in routine for me to plug it in each night.
None of that is necessarily true if it's rooted. http://gizmodo.com/google-glas... Also, "most people" aren't doing something that they mind being recorded doing. The problems come from the situations where they do mind.
...to some of you but police officers are also there to protect you from those who might want to take your money or otherwise commit a crime against you. I'm aware of the potential for abuse from these systems, but if we decide they can't watch us in public, where can they watch us? What deters a robber that knows for a fact there will never be a cop around to catch him in the act?
Taken to this extreme, how would police officers ever observe anything? I'm all for privacy, but if I get mugged in the street and a cop drives by, I sure as hell want them to be looking out and come to my aid.
