FISC Chief Judge: We Can't Effectively Oversee the NSA
.. because Americans do not protest enough, despite the
effective monitoring and guidance being almost nil - of course,
it will continue. What will happen is that it will drag America down.
In particular, Germany is already adding ISP customers. But
it is more general than that. America used to be 'the best town'.
If that perception is no longer true, and, for instance, the
dollar goes down, there happens to be
a wider world ...
Is 'Fair Use' Unfair To Humans?
Everyone was warned by folks like me that it was the dumbest idea of
all time. Now people seem to be entrammeled by the implications ...
[ And don't really notice that it was lawyers at
Adobe et Al that did this to them. ]
EDUCATION. What the USA lacks ... plus, the inclination
to reward monopolization and big business. Jeez.
WA Post Publishes 4 More Slides On Data Collection From Google, Et Al
WaPo is undermined by being American. On The other hand,
we now have the Germans and the French being "really fcuking angry"
which is ... about time.
The Aging of Our Nuclear Power Plants Is Not So Graceful
You use the waste in what they call a Fast Reactor. http://is.gd/Vc1noJ That's what we have to be building. In addition to renewable building, we must do something about the waste. Hanford WA is leaking right now.

Agree strongly with Yvanhoe. I don't quite qualify as a geek, don't think. But am one in spirit.

The Trajectory of Television: A Big History of the Small Screen.
I'm as old as this guy I'm sure. And he's right but the thing isn't the TV, it's the economy, and the way people move in, and geography, and every other damn thing. Actually, although he elects to, there is NO possibility of avoiding the advance of technology. Other hand, we're all going to broil to death unless we start facing up to things as connected adults.

"Dramatic Decline" Warning For Plants and Animals
for your Grandchildren. Those ignoring or making fun of it don't care about their
descendants. I guess Slashdotters may be clever, but not very respectful of science
itself. Very sad indeed !
Texas Company's Antique Computers Are For Production, Not Display
"Oracle" *would* write this. Answer is, as one of previous posters indicates, it's *EASIER* to debug the wiring than it is to debug masses of code. I have breadboards still in my office, to prove.

China Leads in "Clean" Energy Investment
Absolute rot fellow. Do you not see that the atmosphere skin of the planet is basketball-skin thin? Do you not understand that we have studied this? Do you not see that for whatever reason, that China is now GOOD compared to an America that is plainly BAD???

9th Circuit Affirms IsoHunt Decision; No DMCA Safe Harbor
Why was there no thought applied here? Why should we make
suckiwood wealthy? What is the moral rule that applies? Why make
a game of intersecuring knowledge with one another? Why would
this still be a world of pirates (DCMA) versus us when we could
actually have had a new world ?
I am an artist, by the way. There is no defense here,
except of Capitalist (valueless, useless) "values". Up until
now, we have prospered by keeping intelligence open
and online. THIS IS STUPID.
DCMA => downfall of America.

Does the Higgs Boson Reveal Our Universe's Doomsday?
Wrong again. Mankind is worthless. Life, by contrast, is a most interesting phenomenon, and we don't know yet about whether or if any damn thing has existence as a reproducing self-centred beingness beyond what we know. Most interesting. The more we know, the less certain we are and the value of life in my eyes, escalates. F. U. It's a very long game.
