  • Commented on How To Survive A Death March
    My experience, first, is that you can trade extra time per day for length of the death march. I know my normal effective work limit by now; about 45 hours per week. I can do a hundred-hour week - as...
  • Commented on The revolution will not be hand-stitched
    Clothing is an obvious target. A few thoughts about other ones: * in the very short end: better spray-on insulation, shock absorber materials and the like, as you can customize the fiber and the application process to the task. *...
  • Commented on The latest news
    You have a too pessimistic take on the latest revelations. So, NSA has access to backdoors or exploitable weaknesses throughout the internet. That means that now _everybody_ has potential access to backdoors or exploitable weaknesses everywhere. And like any other...
  • Commented on Attention conservation notice
    Don't know if it's of any relevance to you, but some English eBooks are available for Japanese buyers DRM free: The Bloodline Feud: http://rakuten.kobobooks.com/ebook/The-Bloodline-Feud/book-RJ9fntAUY0Wq6JGjnqDWbQ/page1.html?s=3XiTfBnRQ0CfyuRh8wxNFA&r=6 The Traders War: http://rakuten.kobobooks.com/ebook/The-Traders-War/book-nyLOcu27x0eiFOjwW1Snbw/page1.html?s=wbzGvVEZmUaPkWE7qs9Gww&r=6 The Revolution Trade: http://rakuten.kobobooks.com/ebook/The-Revolution-Trade/book-NS_hx-wn9UOikoXFUc6lxw/page1.html?s=22Hq5mfbrkKi1cYUkmIhQw&r=3...
  • Commented on Monarchy versus the Panopticon
    It's not just himself. His future security detail may want to prepare for their future stress-induced heart attacks already. In the rather near future it will be not just feasible but common to pick out anybody from any picture posted...
  • Commented on Neptune's Brood: an excerpt
    I have to admit I really appreciate the opening centence in The Revolution Trade as well. Got a used copy of Neuromancer in Japanese a while back and forgot all about it; I think it's time to crack that one...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Merchant Princes
    John, Rakuten sells in the US as well, and have the three new editions. Might want to try there....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Merchant Princes
    Here's a tip for anyone living in Japan: Rakuten Kobo Books have the omnibus available, clearly marked DRM free, on their online store. Prices are very reasonable too. I just picked up all three. The Apocalypse Codex is unfortunately DRM-encumebered...

    The sad thing is, an actual studio could produce an actual Hollywood summer blockbuster exactly as described here and nobody would bat an eyelash. It's really getting difficult to parody the genre....
  • Commented on Customer Satisfaction Survey
    I am very disapppinted in 2012 and wish to registrer for a refund. Deapite the rosy pre-release promises 2012 was off to a disastrous start, with a close relative diagnosed with a fatal disease. We spent much of the year...
  • Commented on Things that keep me awake at night #1: The end of telephony
    You're the big-shot futurist progonosticator — why not flip the question around? You've got insanely cheap phone calls, free and open software to act as an exchange, and cheap-to-free software to replace a human on either end. Software/hardware solutions to...
  • Commented on The ticking clock, stopped
    Current retirement model (work for 30-40 years, get supported by pension schemes or own investments until you shuffle off) won't work any more. You will have to (and will probably want to) work for the next five-hundred years, not the...
