Cost of Pre-Screening All YouTube Content: US$37 Billion

MikeMacK Re:How do they filter porn then? (345 comments)

Probably because they don't need to watch all 72 hours that is uploaded every minute to have an idea, almost immediately, if the content is appropriate.

It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him. Dragons may not have much real use for all their wealth, but they know it to an ounce as a rule, especially after long possession...

Obama To Agencies: Optimize Web Content For Mobile

MikeMacK Re:Beauacracy (322 comments)

My response was not anti-government, it is pro-efficiency. I was simply responding to what the President said. He is saying that someone has to get "information across different government programs" in order to find the info they want. I don't see how creating mobile apps helps that, seems like simplifying the number of programs a user interacts with would. As to which to "ditch", that's a completely different argument and one we've all been having for decades, and probably will continue too.

Obama To Agencies: Optimize Web Content For Mobile

MikeMacK Beauacracy (322 comments)

'For far too long, the American people have been forced to navigate a labyrinth of information across different government programs in order to find the services they need.'"

Or perhaps we need to simplify the number of "programs", that might help too.

A Memory of Light To Be Released January 8, 2013

MikeMacK Re:Doorstops (228 comments)

...but please noone ever do this again, or at least give good warning so that we can avoid going down the path until it's complete.

Someone did do it, the right way. Steven Erikson and the Malazan Book of Fallen. Epic, big (10 very large books) and very well written, and yes, even complete. It can be done. You just need the right writer.
