The EU Has a Plan To Break Up Google

g4sy Re:Google doesn't have a monopoly on ANYTHING. (331 comments)

And Google have an effective monopoly on search and are abusing it. It's a pretty straightforward case for their companies in the EU being broken up. Isn't that one of the functions of small gubbermint in a fundamentalist free-market neoliberal system? You know, to ensure that there's competition and no one entity can become tyranical?

No. The EU forces me all the time to do things I don't want to do, and I have no choice. I have, and did choose to stop using google services over a period about a year. Totally weaned from google about 12 months ago now. I might starting using them again now. But the point is I HAVE A CHOICE

Ask Slashdot: Best Practices For Starting and Running a Software Shop?

g4sy Re:First and foremost (176 comments)

hahahahahahahahaha nope. not even close. here's a hint: would you tell you younger brother to spend 4 years doing those "projects" or 4 years solving problems for the real world and a couple hours doing open source problem solving at night? yah, i thought so. if you say you picked the former, you're lying. or don't have a younger brother. source: been in industry for 15 years, running business in london for 3 years now.

LinkedIn Study: US Attracting Fewer Educated, Highly Skilled Migrants

g4sy Re:Perspective (323 comments)

i could say everything (yes everything) that you said and i did the opposite move. maybe things are just clamping down on both sides of the pond? i think its the increase in the power of the state, but i'd like to be wrong (because that would be hard to fix: they hace the guns and will soon have the press). am i wrong?

US Marshals Auctioning $20M Worth of Silk Road's Bitcoins

g4sy Re:What a moron! (119 comments)

Really? So you're claiming that you were instead sidestepping his question, and misleading everyone into thinking you were on about actually answering his valid point? You REALLY want to make that claim?

How can a rational human prefer to be thought a troll and a moron over just simply ignorant?

Big Data Knows When You Are About To Quit Your Job

g4sy Re:Taking the Human out of Human Resources (185 comments)

Thanks for that, very clear explaination of what I think is a rational theory. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you would have gotten extra points for citing your sources. I've read a bunch of C. H. Douglas' writings recently and I think he correctly predicted the "infinitely increasing debt" problem very well (No one else even bothers to wonder "why is there more and more debt, even when worldwide GDP is increasing?? Has there been a wordwide hot war since 1950, with the entire world getting carpet bombed, or is there another explaination?"

I still struggle with his ideas of a solution. I think Samuel Konkin might have a better solution (i.e. openbazaar/opentxs), but we're reading Alongside Night right now, just to get around the philosophy a bit better.

Kickstarter Cancels Anonabox Funding Campaign

g4sy Re:'Freedom in the Cloud' (76 comments)

This is doable. There are clearly many people who are willing to shell out $50 for much less. The market is there. We need to get an A-team of open project leaders (Andrew "Bunnie" Huang, the guys at Apertus, probably others I can't think of off the top of my head) and get a community around them to crowd-fund and build such a device. It needs a tipping point of network effect as well.

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

g4sy Re:The language in the old west (387 comments)

It should be clarified that the west didn't suffer fools, but there was still a lot of community, posses, putting the fool in jail overnight so he could be judged by his peers.

This entire discussion over the wild west seems to have excluded the middle: there is a middle between current "civilization" and people going around shooting anyone in the face who they consider a fool. The wild west was not chaos, in microcosms there were examples of highly functioning anarcho-syndicism

Independent Researchers Test Rossi's Alleged Cold Fusion Device For 32 Days

g4sy Re:Hoax (986 comments)

You are a moron. You obviously didn't even read a word of gweihir's link. Did you even click on it? You are far more intellectually dishonest than Rossi has ever been in his life. Just by your 100% stupid comment, which indicates you started shouting amen and hallelujah without even knowing what you were replying to. Idiot. Fanatic. Lunatic.

You're a flaming idiot. Try reading the first page. You clearly didn't even bother reading as far as the summary. Idiot. Fail. To. Read. Please be more intellectually responsible in the future.

Independent Researchers Test Rossi's Alleged Cold Fusion Device For 32 Days

g4sy Re:Hoax (986 comments)

It's not. On the very first page of the GP's arxiv.org paper: "Our comments reported here are based on the report as uploaded on arXiv ( http://arxiv.org/abs/1305.3913...) and Elforsk home pages on May 20, 2013 (version 2) [1]. Any possible subsequent updates have not been considered." Fail. To. Read. GP should be ashamed but not nearly as ashamed as Nemyst and tibit. I too am waiting for some good comments on arXiv to be posted for the latest test. Sadly I'll be ignoring everything these 3 slashdotters have to say on the matter because they are idiots and can't even get their thoughts in the right context.

Independent Researchers Test Rossi's Alleged Cold Fusion Device For 32 Days

g4sy Re:Hoax (986 comments)

I agree with your sentiment. My observations have also lead me to believe that generating power is NOT something that higher levels of government will allow local government to participate in/regulate. And larger companies and richer individuals will never allow small local companies and common people make their own energy. I am curious as to the name of this town in Missouri? And surely this story has been repeated all over Michigan and many other midwestern states, but I can't find a central list of such histories (ddg'd and googled for 5 minutes). Can you point us to a good starting point?
