Ask Slashdot: Dealing With Electronics-Induced Inattentiveness?

CosaNostra Pizza Inc huh? (312 comments)

If you were in your 50's or 60's, I'd say you were suffering from Alzheimers or just having a senior moment. However, since you are in your 20's, maybe get a CT scan? That's just my opinion, as I have a complete lack of medical knowledge. Also, I'm just joking.

Hawking Warns Strong AI Could Threaten Humanity

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:ignored (574 comments)

Who knows if or what resources we'd compete for? Energy may not be a problem if its cheap, plentiful and renewable. Food may not be a problem. geographical space may be a problem, use of the electromagnetic spectrum could be a problem, air traffic could be a problem, etc, etc.

Researchers Say the Tech Worker Shortage Doesn't Really Exist

CosaNostra Pizza Inc replacements (454 comments)

"is the industry’s desire for lower-wage, more-exploitable guest workers, not a lack of available American staff." If they want that, they can start with replacing the highest paid, least skilled workers in the companies...the upper management.

I'm most interested in robots that will...

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:Basic jobs, but not to avoid talking (307 comments)

The most mundane, biggest waste of time is driving between home and work every day. Image being able to type up a report/term paper, develop software, etc in your car while it drives itself to your destination. Also, removing the human element would probably reduce accidents and lessen gridlock traffic.

Why isn't there a designated place for bullshit like this?

There is a place called a church but apparently, the fundis aren't satisfied unless they encroach on other venues.

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:The answer (441 comments)

Well cayenne8...Unpleasant distractions in a job can make a job...well, unpleasant. Take me for example, I'm a developer who does a lot of analytical problem solving. Yet, I'm almost constantly distracted by the big-mouthed middleware guy who sits in the adjacent cubical and talks on the phone all day with a loud annoying voice. I wear 30db headphones sometimes, which help. I even asked to be moved to another cubical but I have to wait on an answer because the company may be moving to a nearby town in a few months, anyway. Also, most of us spend more the our waking hours of our lives at work than outside of work. My point is that people who feel ostracized or uncomfortable in their work environment are dealing with distractions...and distractions can impact work performance and/or physical/mental health.

Also, If everyone decides to move in to just a few states because they have great healthcare, those states will eventually be overburdened and then it will suck to live in those states too.
