Snowden Rallies Privacy Advocates In New York City

jennatalia Re:Thank you Snowden (72 comments)

All he did was come up with proof of what we've known and joked about for decades. Black helicopters, big brother listening in, it's not new.

Snowden Rallies Privacy Advocates In New York City

jennatalia He'll never be back, but his efforts left a mark (72 comments)

As much as people want him to be freed and exonerated, you can only poke the bear so much before he will kill you. He only got to poke it once, though, but maybe he'll face a fair trial if he goes up against an international tribunal rather than one in the US.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts Opens Mouth, Inserts Foot

jennatalia Maybe the gov't should build the interwebs!?! (343 comments)

That way infrastructure will always be on the budget to get upgraded. They'll still give us anonymity and we'll pay for it from our taxes. If you can't trust the gov't, then who can you trust. Oh wait...

Don't Help Your Kids With Their Homework

jennatalia Bullshit (278 comments)

I did fine growing up, but me working with my younger brother on concepts helped him more at school and was a top-off on education more than anything. I'm sure my parents would have helped, but they were working. Showing kids how to get from A to B is a lot better than showing them the answers or doing it for them.

Google Flu Trends Gets It Wrong Three Years Running

jennatalia Predictions are predictions (64 comments)

It doesn't mean they'll come true. I predict I'll win the lottery. Yay, I won $4 instead of $40M. It's a noble cause, but it just needs some tinkering to get things right.
