What the ever living fuck? Did the author think this through? Don't have the ability and skill to fix your broken toilet?! Just cry disadvantage!
The author of this article has obviously never worked with open data or knows anybody who has. There are an incredible number of benefits to having access to open data. For example, groups like Chicago's Open Gov Hack Night have done some pretty amazing things: http://opencityapps.org/
Why doesn't their automated ticketing system have a check for that? It should be a couple lines of code in their reporting software.
Instead, people have to go to court to contest these. That never works, though, since tickets are pretty uncontestable AND they don't allow appeals.
"It was a fraction of a second that no driver really noticed. But the difference between a 2.9 second yellow light and a 3.0 second yellow light meant about 77,000 tickets for Chicago motorists, and a $7.7 million windfall for the city’s coffers, according to the Chicago Tribune.:
Also, a shoutout to anybody who's interested in doing open data in Chicago to fight systems like this with data crunching: http://opengovhacknight.org/
but, so help me God, if Comcast blocks bittorrent traffic, I'm going to call for heads to roll!
I really wish I had mod points to downvote this garbage post.
If tor promised X amount of bandwidth to all of its users, your point would be more valid. That's not the case. Comcast is a PAID service that promises X amount of bandwidth. Tor and Comcast should never, ever be compared in this way. It's a fucking shame that people even think your post is upvoteable.
The people who use tor for downloading movies/music/etc should be hanged. They're ruining it for those who use it for legit purposes.
Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
