It's pretty clear from your writings that you're a virtuoso (at least among Slashdotters) at hooker relations. As for the New Scientist article, it's BS. They use the example of Peter Orszag, who is "the nation's most powerful pencil-pusher". Which should be an instant hit as to why women find him sexy, and it ain't the "pencil pusher" part. I mean, Alan Greenspan used to sit around in hot tubs with hotter women; he'd have the financial news on and he'd impress them by showing how he could make the tickers change with short phone calls. Volatility? That was Greenspan having a good day.
One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
