Researchers from the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) believe the software will allow doctors to better treat patients with pulmonary hypertension by determining how aggressive their treatment needs to be.
Secure? Browser? hahaha, surely thou jest..
I agreed with you up to the last statement. Such policies are no better than the consequences they're meant to prevent.
Tell him that.
..and you have no right to impose your slippery slope end-justifies-means logic on everyone else.
At least 20 years I think... They could have saved a lot of money and just asked me instead of performing this crazy-ass study of something most doctors have known for decades. And I'm not even a doctor.
A narrow vision... You will become one with the Borg. You will all become one with the Borg.
Overall, I agree, but I do disagree with a few of your statements.
1. UIs today are far less productive than they used to be. They mirror the reduced functionality of the software that implements them. The focus is on aesthetics rather than sane layouts. The 'experience' you speak of is fraught with frustration of 'feature-hunt', coupled with a passive aggressive struggle with the developers who pretend they don't understand why you wanted that feature they removed from the latest forced update.
2. Slack is not better than IRC. Slack IS IRC, with the negatives of 'mobile style' UI grafted on top of it. There's nothing about it that's really better than IRC. It's just someone's money grab. Discord is of similar ilk vs IRC/teamspeak/ventrilo/mumble.
The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
