We are pleased to announce that the 2014 winner of the Philosophy Now Award for Contributions in the Fight Against Stupidity is the linguist and philosopher Professor Noam Chomsky.

Chomsky was picked as this year's winner for several aspects of his work, including for the "Propaganda Model" developed by him and Edward S. Herman in their book "Manufacturing Consent" and since. Encouraging us all to critically examine the mass media sources of information upon which we rely as citizens and voters - and giving us the tools to do so - seems exactly the kind of contribution we had in mind when establishing this Award.

In my new job, the office 'radio' is a computer that mostly plays tunes via Pandora.  It's convenient, however, I've done my own double-blind tests of it's efficacy in meetings its claims of serving up music I would like and found them to be unjustified. 

I know why. 

Using only the music genome project algos is akin to using a algo to find food you might like, only the algo just goes on, say, what the food looks like.  Music is deeply multi-modal.  The myopic fixation on harmonic analysis that the euro-classical tradition typifies goes part of the way to explaining Pandoras poverty. 

However, it's the best of a bad bunch right now, so I'll keep using it, also, at least one staff member has a paid account, which gives us the higher bit-rate (not that we have time to notice the difference).

Pandora is free, personalized radio that plays music you'll love. Discover new music and enjoy old favorites. Start with your favorite artist, song or composer and Pandora will create a custom station that plays similar tracks.

After the walk in the park of going over what I'd done before in ICND1, I'm finding that they've added new stuff into the CCNA that I've never done before. Shits about to get reaaaaaal.

The conventional wisdom is that the ABC leans to the left. It's a wisdom so conventional that not even facts and evidence can destroy it.
