  • Commented on How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love Focus Groups
    Some really great studio albums came from not only rehearsing, but testing against reactions of others. If memory serves right, Dark Side of the Moon incorporated this technique....
  • Commented on How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love Focus Groups
    Nice post. Peer review works well in science. But it too is dynamic with information everywhere and every when. Sometimes sexy ideas are easiest to sell. A lot of science comes from negotiation, alignment, and a bit of luck. Art...
  • Commented on Over-Extended Metaphor for the day
    Great post. CS languages and OSs are as arbitrary as human languages and religions. But religions are an authentic and poignant comparison to OSs. It is fascinating to think of how the constraints of empiricism (the physical world) coerce the...
  • Commented on The cult of justice
    A lot of scared, typically ignorant people, think the law means significantly more than it is. Many American's think of law in a religious way: it is the foundation for their ethics, not just constraints on the rights. They may...
  • Commented on Why Microsoft Word must Die
    I hope LaTeX would be used more prominently, particularly by scientists. It is not ideal, but it has evolved well and hopefully will continue into more improved condition over time....

    Many scientists will use it and it is infuriating. LaTex! You j**ka**es. Ahhh. Word is not for science....and if you use it is because you are old or lazy and have an incomprehensibly low sense of aesthetics. People who use...
  • Commented on Another deceptively simple question
    The capacity for ebooks to be read to us will improve dramatically. Choice of voice, narration motif (dangerous, charismatic, dogmatic, fatastic, etc.). Possibly even choice of language. Books will generally be shorted; not enough time and competition for learning time...
  • Commented on Another deceptively simple question
    Humans have not been reading that long...maybe 10000 years and certainly not all humans. Technologies are hopefully allowing the majority of humans to 'upload' in ways that do not require reading. Most of us learn more efficiently from listening or...
  • Commented on Time tourism: some reaction shots
    Heroines are thin in all of fiction, but this one is as close as any that is near ideal: Lyra Belacqua. Not a time traveler, but the travel she does between universes is isomorphically the same. Charlie is right, children,...
