... damned lies ... and statistics. The P value only tells you if there is statistical significance in the data, not whether your hypothesis is correct or incorrect.
are behaving like kiddies.
Just look at any communications technology from the early to mid 20th century that was the "cutting edge" of the day but now is the technology dinosaur. For example pony express/snail mail - telegraph - telephone - fax - email - social media. Think it will end? Hardly.
Crowdfunding is no different than any other form of investment; it promises to deliver something in return for money. That's business and just because the business is done on the internet, mostly by people with little or no understanding of what's involved in legally soliciting capital investment, doesn't make it exempt from normal business regulation.
They'll continue to monitor, as in do something about a malicious ad once someone else identifies it and spreads the word.
It's not like Snowden managed to change anything other than the public dialog. Anyone who thinks every country on the planet isn't doing the same thing as the NSA is dangerously naive. Snowden deserves his exile if for no other reason than being naive enough to think he'd actually change the way the world works.
In fact it's likely the trolls and their bait that agree with you.
People are touted as being "the most influential" who are nothing more than drama fodder for the 24x7 news organizations. Snowden will soon be a memory, heck he's almost a memory now, and bitcoin and its ilk will fare no better over time. It used to be that people expected 15 minutes of fame, now with the pace of information flow they should expect 15 ms of fame at best.
That's not fair
... many of us know a technological bubble when we see one.
Well, the Affordable Healthcare Act insurance plans aren't effective until Jan 1, 2014. And there's nothing in the AHA that prevents a policy from having a cheap co-pay. You're either a troll or you blame the AHA for your insurance company using the AHA as an excuse to put the screws to you.
Unfortunately, whining about the spanking, AFTER having done the deed, is a non-starter.
If you're holding a phone in one hand while driving you certainly don't have both hands on the steering wheel and can't respond as well to an emergency as if you did. If you're holding it in your hand what ARE you doing with it? Cuddling it? You say holding the phone doesn't present even the slightest danger, and you're wrong. You just had your day in court and lost. How do you arrive at the conclusion that holding a cell phone or any other electronic gadget while operating a 4000 lb (1850 Kg) vehicle on a public thoroughfare was a 'human right".
And we're still getting more than we paid for.
