Badger Nadgers Re:Erroneous Summary (139 comments)

Thanks for the clarification. I've wanted to get my head around the subject for many years and never found an accessible way for a lay person like myseff, and this discussion has rectified that concisely and appropriately.

It's Not Just How Smart You Are: Curiosity Is Key To Learning

Badger Nadgers Re:.. and this is new ? (83 comments)

Isn't this just a debate of the meaning of words when considering the actions of an extremely small sample? It could be argued motivation leads to curiosity - maybe someone needs to get a job (motivation) and they wonder whether (curiosity) thet would be able to learn some skills that would enable them to get one. I would suggest it's subbstantively about volition in learning. A motivated learner will be successful if given sufficient resources, time, environment etc. whereas an unmotivated person will not learn, not even after prodding them with a Big Pointy Stick. If they do change behaviour, and in the manner you desired, you've simply provided motivation - to avoid the nasty stabbing pain in the forehead in this case.

DoT Proposes Mandating Vehicle-To-Vehicle Communications

Badger Nadgers What privacy concern? (261 comments)

"The submitter notes that this V2V communication would include transmission of a vehicle's location, which comes with privacy concerns" Hardly a secret is it? It's the chuffing big bit of metal about to slam into your vehicle. Look out the windows and there it is.

Badger Nadgers Would it not be easier... (55 comments)
