Shuttleworth's Take On GNOME 3.0, Coordination with Debian

ziggamon2.0 Yay! Fixing 100 Paper Cuts! (320 comments)

So, it finally happened! A major effort by a distro to fix one hundred really small but irritating bugs. Also known as polish. This is what Ubuntu needs, and to be fair has been quite good at. Just fixing more and more of the tiny annoyances is what creates a well-rounded desktop. On the other hand, they are introducing Gnome Shell, which while probably cool, will certainly introduce a couple of hundred new paper cuts!

The Video Bay, Now In Beta

ziggamon2.0 Re:Good luck with that... (107 comments)

How do you measure privacy concerns?

ziggamon2.0 ziggamon2.0 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

ziggamon2.0 writes "I'm a media technology masters' student looking to conduct a study on privacy beliefs and actual practices of people on social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace. The idea is to establish what people agree are acceptable levels of transparency, and how/where the trend is going. Any ideas on how such a study could be done?"

Since they are identical twins, and have the exact same DNA they are inseparable in paternety tests. How is one to know? And if their DNA is really the same, in a biological perspective, does it really matter?"
