  • Commented on I can't keep up
    "my only question is, which open source license are they using?" which version control system are they using?? and how are sha1 collisions going to affect the spell?...
  • Commented on Mendel Acquisition Squares : A Game of Futures
    Elsevier bought Mendeley. There is MS Elsevier (for Microsoft that I saw in a talk called "A History of Bioinformatics (in the Year 2039)"....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    _Constellation Games_ was a blast. I've reread it a few times when I need to read funny things. Speaking of humor (and comfort), I've reread Pterry a lot this year and have been getting audio book versions of my favorites...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    I've read a lot, so I will focus on some books I haven't finished yet. Non-fiction takes me quiet a while... Earlier this year, I saw an article "Data Mining Reveals the Four Urban Conditions That Create Vibrant City Life"....
  • Commented on A game of consequences
    ...I think for handling people who can't cope or who won't reform that you're going to need some sandbox technology to give them their own reality or a mediated reality. Peter Watts has some stories where people toggle consciousness for...
  • Commented on Cytological Utopia and the rapture of the eukaryotes
    It doesn't have to be brain surgery, and I maybe non-invasive techniques for affecting the brain are achievable in the near future (>10 years?) for some scenario where someone would want to punish meat people. relatedly, here is a "badass"...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    btw, if we are able to experience some group mind, I would like to be able to experience non human minds as well. Your comments on pigeons reminds me of this in particular because I already want to be able...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    I've been pondering the problem of groupthink. When does it have a worse affect than in the conditions where collaboration has a better one? It seems equal group participation can increase the intelligence of a gorup of people performing some...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    I am still pondering neurodiversity, body diversity, etc. One way to think of this is to frame it like cells joining in to a body. We have cells that differentiate in to kidney cells, and others differentiate in to skin...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Perhaps humans with enforced telepathy/empathy would be somewhat protected by an ability to tune out extraneous information (which humans already do, with various degrees of success). Some percent of us would probably be able to avoid emotional contagion enough to...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    well, I am back from penguicon (went over the weekend). invariable I over-estimate my ability to go to talks. I meant to see one Sunday on software patents, but missed it. My friend who went to see it told me...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    In my opinion, it would have been nice if people took training to know how to behave with you instead of the onus being on you as an introvert and as someone on the autism scale to do all of...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    well, I was thinking of some subtle technology but we could go with shock collar bots for long talkers....
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    Thanks for the clarification, by this you can tell I don't have a long history with the concept. In the 90s I was way more clueless than I am these days and didn't encounter the concept. (my awareness of my...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    I'm not sure if you are trolling, but I'll reply anyway to point out the overly narrow framing in your explanation. You are framing spaces as therapeutic. Actually, the concept is more broad than that. Charlie's comment about research on...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    I popped in to mention that I've donated resources to help stream FLOSS-topic conferences. For that, one needs to spin up a few VMs on something like AWS. It can get expensive. It def gets expensive if you forget to...
