Not Just Netflix: Google Challenges Canada's Power To Regulate Online Video

maliqua Re:fuck american hegemony (108 comments)

believe it or not Canada has in the past in many situations had laws that differ from the united states, and in those situations most of the time the american companies have decided to continue to follow our laws.

You'd be surprised many of your international corporations adhere to even stranger laws in other countries.

and you know what, if we lose out on a few episodes of Orange is the new Black, our nation will survive

Not Just Netflix: Google Challenges Canada's Power To Regulate Online Video

maliqua Re:Come on... (108 comments)

I think the big difference is netflix uses bought licensed content and a subscription model which makes it compete with what is currently accepted as broadcasters.

i don't think the rules should apply to youtube or other distributors of self published content. Think of the reprocussions of regulating content sites like youtube would be far reaching and devastating, the porn industry would be figuratively fucked for a change.

Is Google's Non-Tax Based Public School Funding Cause For Celebration?

maliqua Gender based funding summarized: (88 comments)

Project A: Project to help anyone learn a certain skill set and better themselves
Project B: Project to help men transition into primarily female dominated career paths
Project C: Project to help women transition into primarily male dominated feidls

Here's how this plays out:

Project A: gets lots of applications from all walks of life and helps everyone interested until they run out of funding.
Project B: gets many male applicants, project goes smoothly, a female applicant is denied, then launches a law suite for discrimination project B dies because the life blood was sucked out of it by an unhappy woman
Project C: helps many women, no men try to apply and even if they do they simply accept they're not invited to this party, then it continues much like project A

Ask Slashdot: How To Pick Up Astronomy and Physics As an Adult?

maliqua Doesnt Hurt to try (234 comments)

Go for it, don't quit your day job, and worst case scenario you never manage to contribute anything major to the field, but you gain a greater understanding of something you find interesting. Best case scenario you excel discover all the mysteries of the universe.

All you have to lose is the time you spend on it, if it's a passion of yours then you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
