Yesterday, in a medical conference, I was told that 75% of heroin addicts that started with oxycontin abuse never had a prescription for their oxycontin.
Different statistic, but also very different implication. And no I don't have a source to cite, sorry, but I do believe in the sincerity of the speaker, FWIW.
I needed a good push to stay away from Facebook. Avoiding instant noise is definitely that push.
I've always considered fundraising an admission that you're not there yet. With every round.
And it's a necessary evil and a welcome leg-up when you need it, but you're begging for help and diluting the value of your project because you need it because you're not there yet.
Do they come with free data plans, or do you have to pay for the 24x7 surveillance they provide?
Why can't it walk on it's "hands"?
"Extreme vetting" means something else entirely.
Before the robots are developed, we can use this to print our own tattoos at home.
Bye-bye ink shops - another skilled job lost to automation.
I'd like to see those questions and responses, because 32% of all the adults I know find it hard to just get online - they wouldn't even try to download pirated content. Given this "statistic" was created by a group that would benefit from the a wildly inflated perception of the quantity of piracy, I'll take it with a grain of salt.
And by the way, only 69% of people know that piracy is illegal? Do they even understand the definition of piracy?
The thing about offense is, if someone genuinely tells you they're offended by something, it deserves respect and consideration.
"...homeless people and poor children who will never have any influence in the world
Wow. Check your bias at the door please - not having money or a home says nothing about your intelligence, capability, or desire to do good. I mean, look at our 5th avenue hillbilly president, offering an example of the opposite.
Actually I can't tell if you're tongue-in-cheek or serious.
Paul Revere already sent a message using, potentially, one "unit of light": one if by land.
And he most probably wasn't the first.
Hardening solar panels to withstand the wear of vehicles on them is fine for research, but you gotta believe there are other no-impact places to put them that would reduce the cost and win an argument for preference unequivocally when planning a big deployment. But maybe the French have money to burn (!) on infrastructure, while we're buried in tax cuts and war materiel.
Uber is all about bypassing and ignoring regulations and laws in the name of profit. I hope San Francisco can find a way to ensure they follow the rules, and prosecute them fully when they don't.
IOT attacks, that this discussion is addressing, are possible because millions of attached devices exist that aren't designed to be managed yet are capable of being hijacked. If it's possible to design IEEE-level standards into these devices that prevent the hijack, and legislation mandates that those standards must be present in any device sold in the USA, then those standards will proliferate. Malware authors will have many fewer targets on which to base DOS attacks. They will still break the rules, but they'll have far fewer targets with which to break the rules in this way. That's the idea, and it's a worthy idea to pursue.
