Google Books Makes a Word Cloud of Human History

entotre Inverse correlations (127 comments)

This should be a great way to test euphemism treadmills for instance, try 'lunatic asylum' and 'psychiatric hospital'. Lunatic asylum makes a comeback in the early 2000's, i'm guessing because of history books.

TIME Names Mark Zuckerberg Person of Year

entotre Re:People who don't use Facebook. (317 comments)

The harsh reality is that not using facebook is closer to the new 'people who don't own a phone'.

Zuckerberg was not made 'person of the year' because he invented a new marketing tool.

What do they even do?

Since they reject $45 billion takover bids, they must have a plan.

Ex-Goldman Sachs Programmer Found Guilty

entotre Re:Where is wikileaks when you need them (244 comments)

To be honest I would not either. It was meant more as a talking point and certainly not to incite anyone into leaking. By the way this article and especially the graph in it explains HFT well.

Ex-Goldman Sachs Programmer Found Guilty

It assures that the market maker receives more money for a share than they would otherwise. The buyer then pays more money to a bank that cannot control its risk. I see no benefit in that.

entotre Where is wikileaks when you need them (244 comments)

High frequency trading has no social benefit. If wikileaks could leak all source code of that type I would applaud it.

Angles On Anonymous

entotre Re:The most successful trolls (383 comments)

What I understand is that a growing number of people download the same application (the means) to bring down sites (the common goal) that are supporting the government in the wikileaks case. What am I missing?

Angles On Anonymous

entotre Re:The most successful trolls (383 comments)

I can't follow that at all. There is no infighting for one thing, and those who participate have common, predictable goals and means. Like the tea party movement, Anonymous participants are rebelling against government and the established order.

entotre Re:The most successful trolls (383 comments)

The correct term is a movement. Much like the tea-party. I think Anonymous is the tea-party of the internet.

EasyDNS Falsely Accused of Unplugging WikiLeaks

entotre Re:"Stand up for the cause"? (267 comments)

If you had bothered to read even a fraction of what Wikileaks put out you wouldn't be so ignorant as to make the claim that the US government works "on behalf of the people"

If you really think you can make that case, why not run for office and change things?
It would beat writing condescending rebuttals.

EasyDNS Falsely Accused of Unplugging WikiLeaks

entotre Re:"Stand up for the cause"? (267 comments)

Such pragmatic, sensible thinking is not in fashion at the moment.
I throw wikileaks into the same box as the tea-party movement. The anti-establishment craze will not last forever, though.
