half_d Freespace (in meatspace) (4 comments)

I believe it is essential to create and sustain freespaces which are driven by interest and passion - not profit.

All places I know that focus on creation of ideas and life, instead of money, thrive in a way that is a bit unexplainable, but profound. And encouraging!

Just like open source software, it lowers the barrier to participation to the absolute minimum. Instead of ensuring a ever growing surplus of money, there is total focus on creation/creativity.

Just like open source has spread out to the public, so will the ideas of freespaces - without interests beyond the interests of the users.

More of these please!

A Black Day For Internet Freedom In Germany

half_d Re:I know the feeling. (420 comments)

My simple guess is any request with a destination of 53 is logged and then resolved at some later time.

I have a hard time believing that this would be the case; at least here in Denmark, everything about the different filtering we've experienced points at zero-knowledge politicians telling some IT staff what to do - and do it now!

No real blocking is taking place, just sort of placebo blocking.. by the way, on the Danish version of the 'page with the red STOP sign' it says that ones visit to that page has not been logged.

Our government, just like the rest of the 'civilized' world are acting crazy with paranoia. It seems like they (the politicians) are having a race as to whom can implement most privacy/human-rights defying laws fastest!

Why the LHC Won't Destroy the World

half_d Re:Naturally occurring high energy particles (508 comments)

I would recommend you all to read the nerdy but popular article linked to in the parent.
It creates a very good perspective on which to better understand the LHC - and makes for a good read at the same time.

I at least feel that I now have a better model of understanding concerning the collider (and physics in general) - nice :)
