Why WikiLeaks Is Unlike the Pentagon Papers

Tri0de Re:Hypocrites (696 comments)

"The chain of accountability for these cables goes to tax payers via elected officials (and layers upon layers of bureaucrats). If you want to change that, elect someone who runs on the platform of total government transparency.'

You keep trying to make the same point over and over again. Without success. It has NOTHING to do with electing good officials, that is usually impossible as we have a choice of criminal oligarch scumbucket 'A' or criminal scumbucket 'B' with the only difference being the letter after their names.

This is a nation of LAWS, not of men; our laws should be designed so that whatever crooked Asshole we elect has no way to hide their actions. Procedures should be in place, and restrictions on the power and secrecy of each and every govermental entity and everyone working for it, that protect us from the WORST person that could concievably hold the position.

Toyota Adds External Speakers To Warn Pedestrians

Tri0de Re:Only Priuses? (531 comments)

maybe it is just me, but wouldn't it be easier to just teach drivers to watch the hell out for pedestrians?

oh right, my bad, in this world no one can be bothered to look out for themselves or anyone else... we need to pay $150 for an extra to make our nice, quiet car contribute to the already horrific noise polution.

Seems to me it's the pedestrians that should be looking out for the cars, not the opther way around. Any idiot crossing a street without looking is a drag on the gene poole anyway (obviously not counting blind folks)

Canon Unveils 120-Megapixel Camera Sensor

Tri0de Sorry, still somewhat lame (289 comments)

I used to use an 8"x10" camera, with 25 ASA film.
As much as I really like digital, and I do, there is simply no way an 8x10" ('contact')print from a mere 120 megapixel file is going to be even close.
I'll get stoked when we're talking 100+ gigapixels.

Hoarders vs. Deleters- What Your Inbox Says

Tri0de I see no need to ever delete anything (328 comments)

IT would be as unthinkable as geting rid of books.

Admittidly, my goal is to have all the information that has ever existed and I wish painful death on anyone and any group that would prevent that. As a member of homo sapiens all the information that has ever existed or will exist is my birthright (except for the private information of others, if they wish to be paranoid; I prefer the slow public death of those who abuse rather than preventing access to, information). Outside of spam I archive nearly everything, going back to documenataion from a COBOL program in the mid '70's. Until I can have a jack put into my brain that dumps multiple OC-225 streams straight from all existing backbones directly into my brain I'll have to settle for maxing out my library, my Amazon credit card and multiple email accounts.

Data, like sex, firepower, horsepower and tube wattage, is inherently GOOD!!!
