File Organization — How Do You Do It In 2011?

sb98052 Re:Directories (356 comments)

I think what you mean is it still doesn't work for you. Some things suck less than they did in 2003, but not this.

Why Dumbphones Still Dominate, For Now

sb98052 Bootstrapping problem (618 comments)

Dumbphones are great, till you've actually used a smartphone. It's hard to convey the smartphone experience to dumbphone users - it's more than just email, web and apps - it's a paradigm change that speeds up your access to information from 10s of seconds to seconds. With this dramatic change, you start going about your business and life differently.

Fox News Brings Video Game Violence Debate To a New Low

sb98052 Guns (421 comments)

I wish they would apply the same distaste for violence to the sale of real guns and arms - that's what actually hurts people, not the boom and splat of video games.

The CIA's Amazing RC Animals From the 70s

sb98052 Why so soon? (113 comments)

Why are we hearing about one of the coolest pieces of technology developed in the last 30 years in a tabloidesque news bulletin? Another area that could benefit from wikileaks.

Bombay High Court Rules Astrology To Be a Science

sb98052 Fascinating scientific debate (478 comments)

A very respected psychology researcher recently published a paper producing purported statistical evidence for "psi", i.e. phenomena that cannot be explained by known science. The author carried out a long and detailed study on his students: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/06/science/06esp.html and concluded that the effect of 'psi' was 'statistically significant'. The evidence was severely criticized by his peers - in particular is a dismissive rebuttal to the work cited in the same article. Links to the papers lie therein as well. The outlook I have had, reinforced by these studies is that it doesn't hurt to dab a toe on the other side (i.e., in favor of pseudo sciences) every now and then. It helps you think out of the box of known science and understanding. It's like exploring a landscape by following the stars rather than your GPS and compass. You may venture into uncharted territory more easily with the former.

Google Adds Satellite Imagery to Maps

sb98052 another news site down... (661 comments)

Great job guys, that posting just took out Betanews.com. Dunno when these news sites'll learn and stop carrying articles on Google... Or maybe they should just block Google articles from Slashdotters - since we get to know everything that happens anyway...
