Comment Re:maybe for people who are all about money... (Score 1) 263

I'd never hire someone with your attitude. Someone who puts money above all else is not the kind of person I want to be around or to employee. Even if your asking salary was well within my budget.

And none of us will work for you. For several reasons, starting with reading comprehension. The poster didn't say it was all about the money. They said that money mattered. And of course it matters. Everyone needs to have their basic needs met, and in this world, that requires money. And most people would like a little on top of that - because a well rounded person isn't only about one skill set. And if there are things you want to enjoy besides your job, you often need to make more money than absolutely required to survive. And that's why you're post is moronic - because somehow you missed all of this. No one wants to work for an incompetent, right?

This may seem naive, but are you seriously telling us, the Slashdot crowd, that you shouldn't have to release your data because *gasp* someone might do SCIENCE with it? And your suggestion is to impose a copyright/licensing scheme on it? I'm a bit surprised I'm the only person commenting on this. I do see your "continuing funding, job opportunities and pay grade" - but if everyone is doing it, then PERHAPS things might change?

There is no way to identify when MS was "triggered" - so if your friend was told his mother developing cancer "triggered" his MS, I'd suggest he consult another doctor. MS is hard enough to diagnose as it is - MRI's, multiple symptoms, and often a spinal tap are used to diagnosis it, and most experts would say that there is no certainty even at that point.

I have no problem saying that public events can't claim that photos taken at the event are owned by the event sponsor, organizer, etc. HOWEVER, to say that the photographer has no rights to the photo they took is a bit crazy. I'm guessing that you have no idea how difficult it can be to actually TAKE a good photograph. I could be wrong, but seriously, if you had one hundred people take a photograph of the same thing, and one, good, professional photographer take the same shot, I guarantee the difference between those one hundred amateur photos and the one professional photo would be obvious and non-trivial.
