That is it. Dupe!

I prefer the philosophy side (mostly due to the time I have available).
I certainly understand it is less practical or applicable.
But anything that is thought provoking is going to interest me (I tried Godel, Esher, Bach, but it defeated me - multiple times).
I would recommend it.
Very interesting insights into ideas about how consciousness interprets the reality around us (and how the mind ties it all together into something meaningful).
Apple is also the most valuable brand in the world:
They should be leading in most anything they do. And they do. At least they design in the US (How many engineers does it take to patent a rounded corner on a phone? A: Ask Apple.).
First, it's sort of safe to say that Accounting and Lawyering are both based on extremely complicated sets of rules.
Turbo Tax effectively made reasonably complicated (up to small business filings) tax preparation accessible without directly needing an accountant.
How did Turbo Tax impact the accounting industry?
It would appear that it didn't really and that the number of accountants is predicted to rise over time into the future (faster than most other professions per the BLS link).
So the answer is no. AI/computers will certainly augment the legal occupations, but replace lawyers? Nope.
First, it's easy to opportunistically refuel a gasoline powered engine. And fast.
Not so much with batteries.
As well, the energy density of Li-on batteries is very low compared to gasoline (44.4 mj/kg for gasversus
Consider that the battery pack on a Tesla S comes in at 1,200 pounds or so:
That's for about 250 miles of travel.
Gasoline weights about 8.3 pounds per gallon. The equivalent weight results in 144.58 gallons of gas (probably requiring a smaller volume area), and at a low 15 miles per gallon that would be 2,170 miles or so, about a factor of 10 better.
Batteries are nothing compared to fossil fuel that has had multi-million years to process naturally (basically capturing and compressing the power of the sun over long periods of time).
My numbers are probably off a bit, but they are ball park at worst...
Human road rage is extinguished via front and rear cameras.
As angry as one party is, once the other party says they have footage, the situation becomes one of fact and not anger. And then honesty.
Been there, but didn't even have to provide video. Best $50 ever.
No!! Don't suggest that Bennett should work for T-Mobile, that's the carrier I use.
Now if you had suggested AT&T or Sprint I would be on board.
And I'm also supportive of any suggestion that results in my not having to see Bennett's ramblings.
Love the sig, I saw Exodus a few times a long time ago (they destroyed a lot of my hearing along with Slayer).
Changing of the Guard was one of my favorites.
The parent specifically mentioned 18 wheelers, which are probably non-person cargo (I hope so, otherwise it would be terrible).
Add in the savings for the state with regards to road wear from semi trucks. Those can become tax incentives and other benefits to get it built that can reduce that 5 year ROI (for all parties excepting truck drivers, they would be reduced in number and transitioned to end-point work).
Great idea, by the way.
You state your user base is expanding. Does the current UI suck? If so, what reasons are there for the expansion? Is a bad user experience slowing the expansion, or is it something existing or potential users are talking about? If yes, continue.
If your UI/UX sucks (if it's a green screen then that's another story altogether), pick up a copy of Rocket Surgery Made Easy by Steve Krug and setup your own UX testing internally using existing staff. Don't let the developer of a particular thing handle a session for that thing (too much personal bias, I have been that person before)
Pick a specific use cases to test, if users complaining about something in particular that's what you need to focus on.
Do the first round of tests on internal staff, especially on bits the "customer" isn't familiar with. Learn how UX testing works, it isn't that difficult.
Then follow the book for external UX testing. Remote is pretty easy these days, but in person is better (read the book, pay people and provide snacks and such, make them feel appreciated and also worth their while).
With UX testing results in hand, mock up a prototype to show how the changes impact the user experience. UX with the prototype.
Doing this can go quite quickly for a single use case (and then drive further changes as people's eyes open).
Sell it to management, based on concrete potential/existing user comments as well as before/after (prototype) UX feedback.
Rinse and repeat.
That seems extremely expensive at $660,000 per episode/movie (approx).
I wonder how much of that is licensing with the owners of the films? I would have to guess quite a bit.
The Kickstarter doesn't seem to detail this. I will be donating though.
I've had Witcher 2 for far longer than the first, but a friend (who originally recommended the series) said to wait for the first to go on sale.
So I waited, and I'm looking forward to the second, and I figure the 3rd will be $5-10 by the time I finish the first two...
Evolution is a million line computer program falling into place by accident.
