Steve Jobs Dead At 56

texchanchan About 1985 (1613 comments)

In about 1985, at TI somebody brought in one of the first Macs and we got to play with it. It was different from everything on the market, not counting the old Xerox Star which was probably not still around at that point. The Mac was the first computer that was actually a personal computer and not a minimalist mainframe. Circumstances left me on the PC side of things, but it was clear they were following what was going on over there. There was more to it than that, but - good job, Steve. I wish you'd had 30 more years.

What Will Kill The Internet?

texchanchan ©bots (818 comments)

Got something copyrighted you shouldn't have? ©bots will get you eventually. And in the meantime they will slow things down by propagating themselves virus-wise, snooping into every drive they can reach.

How will this happen? Somebody in a large corporation will look at the virus, worm, and spyware trade and say "Those hackers are brainy. How can we legitimately make money off them?" By hiring them to write ©bots to spy out copyright abusers (newly defined); then suing or extorting settlements.

Law enforcement will have their own scary search bots, too.
