    except that without credentials on the application tier you can’t make sense of any of the data it’s just said random bytes. It’s not like all the data lives in each country it’s some tiny fraction of the data that...

    Yes physical things must exist in physical locations However by making any particular thing you are doing not reliant on a particular physical thing sitting in a physical location you make your life better By making yourself not reliant on...

    Let me try again to give you my perspective from where I work I currently work for a pretty large Silicon Valley internet company that is entirely on the cloud There are no virtual desktops, no one is planning any...

    Everything that is new is a iteration on the old, it just gets an order of magnitude better each time However your pretty much entirely missing the point when you think about any of the clouds as being a bunch...

    1: is not a thing anymore and never made much sense 2: pretty much everything . Starting with the fact that your mainframe has a single physical location and if I say, light that location on fire you are hard...

    AR-15’s uppers come in multiple calibers. People do go hunting with them. An AR-15 is a pretty flexibl weapons layoffs, they even make crossbow uppers for AR-15’s I’ve never seen a lever action in the wild though bolt action hunting...

    The point I am trying to make is that once climate change really gets going people are going to fall into one of three buckets 1: people who die 2: people who migrate 3: people who turn on the AC...

    Certainly you could decrease some aspects of energy use (avg household energy use ) without sacrificing standard of living if carbon emissions were properly taxed. However the exact details of what you can make more efficient vary place by place...

    I’m not going to do your research for you, read the article it’s all in there with hordes of examples, studies and data, including a couple different models on the relationship between learning, narrow skills and wide aptitude. A basic...

    I’m seriously considering plugging my Tesla into my solar setup and turning it into a battery after it reaches end of life even if it’s capacity is only half what it started at, 42kwh of battery ain’t cheap and you...

    I think a lot of times people correlate “intelligence” with “common sense” or “ability to master certain skills like building fires” That’s most certainly not the intent or the definition used by cognitive psychologists and others in the field. They...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    It’s not an axiom it’s an observed statistical correlation . Read the article I linked there is plenty of quantarive proof in there The tl;dr is “if you perform better then average at a cognitive task you are statistically more...

    Intelligence is actually pretty real and well supported in cognitive psychology. It’s just not well measured by IQ tests https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/G_factor_(psychometrics)...

    We actually perceive reality pretty well we just do so via scientific instruments (since our biological sensorium is borked in various ways ) + math One semi blind spot is “what happens when the math changes / is incomplete “...

    Someone going to Harvard or the other premium universities doesn’t necessarily make them smart or talented (depends a lot on the program) but it does go a long way to making them “successful” in the sense of big job, big...

    “Climate change can still lead to millions of deaths from famines even if doesn't "break global agriculture". Yup I agree with that After all we have pretty serious famines now, it’s only gonna get worse...

    This is a link on the California olive harvest. 25% lower then normal No effect on prices since last year was a bumper crop It was the combination of a warm spell in winter followed by a frost that’s partially...

    I’m not sure what you are talking about with this 4.5 billion years thing. Maybe you need to reread my post Yes you can ruin your fields with irrigation but you don’t have to. There are techniques to both prevent...

    Farmers absolutely do diversify their crops they just do it on a field by field basis rather then a plant by plant basis like the three sisters do You need to do this not only to protect from bad harvests...

    “Breaking “ agriculture is a way different thing then “no agriculture “ “Breaking agriculture “ means you can’t grow that crop in that location in the way you are used to growing it. Which certainly makes sense could well lead...

    No agricultural outside means no plants and a completely sterile biosphere. So yes, that would be game over. But I’ve never heard anyone credible predict by 2060 But links are always welcome...

    As far as refugees go, I think it wouldn’t be surprised if many states don’t just resort to full on extermination of them You can easily imagine a scenario that is basically islands of facism claiming the remaining agricultural areas,...

    A State does not need to be totally predictable or even as predictable as they are now. They just need to convince their citizens that they are more predictable then what happens when you have anarchy. And that’s a low...

    Not sure how the fall of the State derives from Global Warming Regardless of the effects of climate change, some parts of the world are still going to be consistently nicer/less effected then others . People with military power are...

    “Never been an historical period with all the economically functioning (~import replacing) cities in the same economy before. Previous crash recovery has been via march outposts of functioning cities. (E.g., Venice starts off as a Byzantine outpost) Doing it cold...

    I think a lot of the time the things that get missed are not “ advancement x” but “ the intersection when advancement X meets a new kind of need or demand “ Examples are Genetic engineering meets global warming...

    The primary over riding drive of all politicians is to continue to get re-elected The absolute most certain way to not get re-elected is to fuck up the food supply This means that you can count on the British politicians...

    Regarding compute resources required, I think that’s a none issue. It’s hard to imagine the calculations described to be much of a load, you aren’t talking about automous driving or anything. Nothing much happening in the middle of interstellar space,...

    Being able to block a user is probably the single best add to human communication the internet has delivered I’ve only used that feature three times (once here, twice on Facebook) but even the existence of it is such a...
