The Bursting Social Media Advertising Bubble

Anon, Not Coward D Re:Tuning it out? (254 comments)

i do use it... but i'd like to see statistics regarding how prevalent it's usage really is. I mean beyond the geek circle :)

my guess is that adbloc isn't really an issue (unless firefox and chrome make it a default plugin).

of course the point that marketing effect on consumer behavior is largely unconcious remains.. so that's the real handicap on this study

London's Public Bike Data Can Tell Everyone Where You've Been

Anon, Not Coward D Re:Seems ridiculously easy (41 comments)

From point A (your house) to point B (your work) there are only a handful of individuals (or only one)... so filtering with some other information (such as trips from point A to C, close to his/her parents) it can be linked to a single individual quite easy.

The Most WTF-y Programming Languages

Anon, Not Coward D Bad statistics are bad (254 comments)

those conclusions are drawn without controling for a language usage. Since c++ is widely adopted so there will be more instances of a comment where "WTF?" is used.

Why don't use a percentage at least? Even if that was the case, the problem remains... a wtf-y language may be the most avoided and/or not present in github

A Climate of Violence?

Anon, Not Coward D Weird (184 comments)

So if a mega blizzard struck on the next winter, leaving thousands isolated and on short supplies... they will be chanting "peace and love"?

Maybe the correlation can be explained just by time: there are social factors that are leading to increasingly more violent societies (e.g. increasing awareness of social rights).
