GOP Bill To Outlaw EPA 'Secret Science' That Is Not Transparent, Reproducible

haydensdaddy Presentation (618 comments)

As usual, it's not about the message. The message is a good idea. It's the constantly confrontational attitude that makes everyone roll their eyes at the GOP and not take them seriously.

Brazil Orders Google To Hand Over Street View Data

haydensdaddy Private? (130 comments)

" to access private wi-fi networks" I seriously doubt it was hacking their networks. If you don't put a password on your wi-fi... it becomes a "public wi-fi network"...

CSS Zen Garden Turns 10

haydensdaddy Re:The Zen Garden Should Go Away (37 comments)

While I am all about digital preservation, this is what is for, no?

How does opening a site for submissions relate to digital preservation?

I just think CSS is one of those things everyone needs to know something about.

But a site dedicated to raising awareness and providing user-submitted examples of how awesome it can be when used creatively isn't useful...?

NZ Broke the Law Spying On Kim Dotcom, PM Apologizes

haydensdaddy Re:Whats this?! (235 comments)

Yes, being from the U.S., this was the part of the story that piqued my interest. An apology from the government? We've never heard of such a thing. In fact if you listen to certain parties in the presidential race, government should never apologize!

FDA Cracking Down On X-ray Exposure For Kids

haydensdaddy Stop... or I'll say 'Stop' again... (138 comments)

"If companies don't take steps to limit X-ray doses, the agency may require a label on their new equipment recommending it not be used on children."

Seriously...? "If you don't stop irradiating children, we'll put a label on the irradiating machine"??
