Interviews: Ask Tim O'Reilly About a Life Steeped In Technology

Twelfth Harmonic question (39 comments)

You've watched at least 4 decades of technology go past. You were watching it from one of the best vantage points.
Does that upwards trend make you feel good about the future? As you know, the world can only fathom a dystopian future, lately.

Massive Job Cuts Are Reportedly Coming For Microsoft Employees

Twelfth Harmonic Re:Who couldn't see this coming? (300 comments)

I could never understand the rationale behind Ballmer as CEO.
Appointing a (loud, obnoxious and sweaty) salesman as the captain of a tech firm just didn't make sense.
Looks like my skepticism was legitimate.

Hacking Online Polls and Other Ways British Spies Seek To Control the Internet

Twelfth Harmonic Totally not NSA spy (117 comments)

Snowden is a traitor. We (NSA) were doing all these things to make the world a better place, and then he had to ruin the surprise.
Remember that guy who betrayed Neo in Matrix? How he explained the whole rationale to Agent Smith, using a piece of steak?
Remember Daleks? How resistance is futile?
We are at the same crossroads, people. Just give in. Don't make us come after you. We both know how it'll end. Just relax. Use FB, twitter, instagram, pinterest and all the tools of procrastination. Give us the information, don't make us go after it. It will be easier for both parties
Did I mention that Snowden is a traitor and you don't count if you happen to be outside our country? Just accept it. Don't make me liberate you.

Google's Experimental Newsroom Avoids Negative Headlines

Twelfth Harmonic These people (109 comments)

need a real journalist to lead their marketing efforts.
For one, you don't edit the news. You relay the facts as is.
If you want to have your audience read about your opinions, you clearly mark that an "Editorial" and then go crazy on your side of things.
Future newsreaders don't need a platform that's gonna censor the news they receive. Google would take a big PR hit from this. think it through.
Sergey Brin said his vision was to "make information come to the people" That's kinda what you're trying to do. The slippery slope is the point where you decide who lives and who dies.

The Bursting Social Media Advertising Bubble

Twelfth Harmonic WSJ claimed (254 comments)

that USA will be energy independent in 30 years.
If you know your energy, you'll be able to decide the quality of their fact checking.
Ad revenue was mostly shooting in the dark until now. With targeted web ads, they are still shooting in the dark, but at least now they know what direction to shoot at.
They have no better option.

In First American TV Interview, Snowden Talks Accountability and Patriotism

Twelfth Harmonic Re:But he did do it for his own gain (389 comments)

and lost his home in the process
and became a tool for international politics
and doesn't have a country he belongs to
Ed basically sarificed himself so that we become more than mere data clusters.
I hope some of you are reading this; the biggest responsibility in this terrible breach of human rights is on the ones who sold their expertise and soul to Uncle Sam for a bigger lawn. Your grandkids will grow up with the Big Brother.

probably every other country that uses US made telecommunication equipmen

That is the big scoop Snowden will reveal. Cisco started begging in WA that they stop it. This will kill off a huge portion of jobs in the US.
Most probably that fact is the moral dilemma Snowden is facing.
