How would they detect any shared properties?
Perhaps Covariance analysis? (mutual information, pearson, svd, etc).
Input: 3 data streams A,B,C each which are not truly random
Correlate: A&B, A&C, B&C
Subproblems: given A&B predict C
Subproblems: given A&C predict B
Subproblems: given B&C predict A
NSA has mathematicians better than I, for sure. My guess is that if an agency has altered an RNG then they have done so in a way that is systematic. These kinds of problems are common in analysis of complex systems -- given three non random variables with characteristic variance can you predict the output variable from the covariance? I dont think I could, but it seems feasible to me that the NSA could.
PostgreSQL can do the vast majority of what Oracle can do at no cost

Not sure what to make of this. Any thoughts other than hopelessness?
As an NLP Bioinformatics guy, I believe the real crime Aaron Swartz committed was being in the news.
He isn't the first to have that dataset and he wont be the last.
We write papers using massive NLP scans of publications rather routinely.
Most of the time, the papers are downloaded from PubMed (public funded) so they can't even complain about bandwidth costs, etc.
For anyone who didn't know already, most subscription Publishers don't **DO** anything.
They are only slightly better than patent trolls, and in some cases, worse.
After their comeback, they will ___________. Their focus is on ___________.
After their comeback, they will HIRE Time Berners Lee. Their focus is on the Semantic Web.
Why would the inventor of the WWW work for Yahoo?
Because you give him ALL the resources to make his dream a coherent reality.
Long shot for sure, but its what I would do.
That is because both Abrams and Bay can't seem to write any character
CANT or WONT? The variable is named $box_office and has a default value of $MAX_PROFIT.
