I think you are off by two orders of magnitude on the voyager data. Assuming you are correct that it will be coasting at around 10km/s, the speed of light is about 3x10^8 m/s or 3x10^5 km/s so voyager will travel a light year in approximately 3x10^4 = 30,000 years, not 1.8 million years. In 100 million years it will have traveled ~3,333 light years.
This was hillarious but the score was even funnier: "+5 Interesting"
I worked for a company with a web based solution. Whenever there was an internal error in their code, instead of admitting there was an error they tried to blame it on the network and sent out a generic message: "Communication error". Actually 100% accurate in a self-referential sense.
No, this is not a wealth tax, it is an income tax. It is just recognizing that income can be received in other forms than dollars. If I paid your monthly salary in barrels of oil it would still be income you were receiving. The problem is putting a value on that income. The suggestion, as I understand it, is to tax income received as shares at the market value of the shares when received. This is an income tax, not a wealth tax.
I would have to go with any one of the many recent books on financial programming. No, I am not recommending financial programming as a field, I am just pointing out that all those graphs of historical stock prices would have been very useful 20 years ago
Whether you happen to be right or wrong in claiming that there is a causal relation, the head of MI6 did NOT make that claim. So the article is a misrepresentation of his statements.
From the quotes in the article all the MI6 head said was that wikileaks and the revolutions both stem from the same empowerment of the public via technology, not that one caused the other.
I admit that I didn't watch the 20 minute video where it actual causality might be mentioned.
Liffe[sic] the universe and everything.
The actual results for this parents search are especially hillarious. Google comes up with a link to the book, Bing comes up with: "Google Would Beat Bing At Jeopardy, Says Wolfram"
GPL v1 goes back to 1989, so free as in Libre clearly existed way before the "open source" branding. Of course in actuallity RMS was pushing free as in Libre *way* before GPL v1

I just hope I don't waste too much time prying the diamond engagement ring off of my wife's hand
A profiler was crashing when I tried to find bottlenecks in my code. The support rep. told me I should turn off optimization.
"Spoiler: 480 days paid paternity leave."
But there is no way society can afford to give paid paternity leave instead of paid maternity leave. Men's salaries are so much higher!
"Global Warming Irreversible"
Wow, are there no limits to human ingenuity? We are finally safe from nuclear winters.
