Damn you, now I'm hooked on the most mind-bending crazy internet mind trip ever http://www.asc-alchemy.com/hudson.html
That's interesting. One's own thoughts then would just be huge MapReduce run over one's own history of moments of consciousness.
Maybe we are finite automata after all.

Yes, because a substantial part of Slashdot's readership gets into trouble and needs to do community service on a regular basis. I can totally identify with the "bad boy" on that front page.
The money will always be in the "mainstream", or the particular mainstream of every place and time, by definition.
Megaupload exists because it makes money. It makes money because millions of people watch movies and download shit off it, not because it makes a few hackers "free" to share stuff.
No mainstream = no money = not *existing* in any noticeable capacity.
It is in fact slightly different than what was reported.
Three of Apple's registered companies in Italy have been fined not just for misleading customers about their two year state-mandated warranty terms, but for hampering access to warranty services after the one year mark.
Now, JS makes for a poor machine language. So we could either beat around the bush with an intermediate bytecode language (Java went there, and Python and all the others too, with varying results) or go for the real thing and come up with a good x86 sandboxing and code verification standard.
So what's the problem with that, again?
This is the 10th grade math course.
I can see how a successful person from one or two generations ago could fail 100% of it.
And I don't think such material should be requirement for everybody. People with other skill sets (social, artistic, etc.) should be recognized and valued too. The world needs musicians and clothes designers and yes, managers and salesmen, as much as we need good scientists and engineers.
grep me no patterns and I'll tell you no lines.
