Swine Flu Vaccine In Production

seriousthinker Re:The only problem now is quantum and distributio (147 comments)

5 bucks say this vaccine causes the virus to mutate and turn into something far worse than it originally was.

And I bet you'd want this kind of research banned, right?

If people like you had had their way, we'd still be suffering from smallpox.

Twitter "Twitpocalypse" Snags Mac, iPhone Apps

seriousthinker Re:Why is twitter hate so cool around /. (160 comments)

If even communism is still around after 160 years, I'd imagine that Twitter might last for a long time. It might be useless, but at least it isn't actively evil.

Should Wikipedians Edit Stories For Pay?

seriousthinker Re:How much (168 comments)

The problem is, you can't argue for market forces when the market is against it. Its like trying to market ham at a kosher deli, they aren't going to want it, and no matter how many times you want to "let the free market decide" they simply don't want it.

Some actors in the market are against it. Some are for it, as the summary shows. The end result is a black market, the same as always when an authority attempts to prevent supply and demand from meeting.
