Clearly she wants Brexit to happen. If democracy has anything to say about it, it won't. The uninformed/misinformed and much regretted referendum is the closest thing to democratic consent to Brexit that will ever exist, so she has to take that and run with it, and not let the people have any more say in the matter.

or more likely, he's one of those people who's so focused on their field he doesn't know anything else, but so egotistical he thinks he knows everything.

This. He knows everything about brain surgery and nothing about virtually anything else, including many medical topics. In all these non-neurosurgery areas the Dunning-Kruger effect is in full force.

Comment Re:Perceptual or cryptographic hash? (Score 2) 256

I'm wondering which they will use. A perceptual hash greatly increases the chance of a false positive but greatly decreases the chance of a false negative. A cryptographic hash virtually eliminates any chance of a false positive but allows media files to be trivially altered to get a false negative.

One is a real solution and the other is somewhere between a basic effort and a symbolic effort.

The people cheerleading the current direction of things believe that the 1% can demand enough goods and services to provide employment for the rest of us. Building pyramids in their honor or something, I don't know.

I'm not sure which is worse, if they turn out to be right or if they turn out to be wrong.
