So you're saying that because we can't predict the future, we shouldn't plan for it? Or make any effort to influence it in a positive way?
I would say that math can indeed be an opinion. Much (most) of modern physics is based on math, and there is a lot of debate as to how mathematical models translate into the "real world". String theory is one example...some people believe it's real, some don't.
Of course, you don't have to get THAT complex to start seeing strange behaviours. For example, did you know that the sum of all positive integers (1 + 2 + 3) is -1/12? http://www.numberphile.com/vid... Do you agree with this result?
How do I delete my account?
You could edit all your posts and write "copyright 2014" then issue Slashdot a DMCA notice. But that might not work.
Why bother voting at all?
Because we have to maintain the illusion of a democracy, that's why.
51% agree with the statement: "Computers will be able to create art as well as humans."
I wonder if people realize that this requires an AI so advanced that it's indistinguishable from the human brain, with fine motor skills to match. I see this as highly unlikely.
At least, it's far less likely than controlling the weather, which is something we can do already: http://www.geoengineeringwatch...
Internet. Interconnected networks. No where does that mean unlimited bandwidth or even guaranteed connectivity from network to network. It is not Comcast's responsibility to provide enough bandwidth for you to stream a 3rd party software at maximum bandwidth, just like it's not their responsibility that you have 10 ping to a Counterstrike server in South Korea. Cogent is just as much responsible for this as Comcast. Cogent is serving as Netflix's ISP and they are not providing enough bandwidth to Comcast end users.
And if they're the only option?
