Sadly enough Splashdown is history. Good however, that their songs are now available for free.

The problem remaining: what's important is a subjective thing...
 
A bit obvious but good to review.
Traffic lights, neon-lit advertisements, a jungle of road signs: when learning to drive, it is often very difficult to distinguish between important and irrelevant information. How the brain learns the importance of certain images over others is being investigated by researchers. They show that learning the relevance of images considerably modifies neuronal networks in the brain. These changes might help our brain to process and classify the over...

My solution has always been to beat people until they realize that they either comply logic or will have to live in massive pain.
And no, fear of death doesn't work. They must live a LONG time in massive pain … or comply.
Because I'm a humanitarian! X'D

Have a look at this short animated by Steve Cutts. Odds are that many of you already know it, as it's got fairly high views on YouTube since 2012. Enjoy - well... kind of.
Steve Cutts’ most popular film MAN -an animated frenzy of man’s societal pitfalls, with over 13 million hits on YouTube since it was uploaded in 2012- touches the raw nerve of every conventional environmentalist and animal rights activist. The wittily-animated film looks at man’s relationship with …

To me it sounds like a good application for the memristors on small scales. Sounds from the article like we need a form of cellular automata that is clever enough to reproduce its processing capabilities. I know this is kind of trivial but I wrote a simulated non-Von Neumann machine for doing shop floor simulation on a bit-sliced processor-based programmable logic controller. It's programming was created in a pseudo language that existed in memory with data. PLCs typically solve one line of if-then-result bit logic at a time then after all the program has run it reads and writes to an I/O matrix. We needed a way to emulate the shop floor process in a very flexible way, even simulating "impossible" events. Rather than try and model every device which was way outside our budget I wrote a kind of scenario processor in which the process being emulated need not be modeled just the behavioral aspects that we wanted the upper level systems to react to. Then when it was deemed that we had determined the states for all I/O necessary the results of that time slice were dumped all at once to the real I/O matrix. I had commands that took many fractions of a real world time slice to execute, commands to alter the scenario based upon sub time slice evens and many more. Since my program executed in its own "time" we could stop and stop the simulation in place, make code and data changes, and then continue with higher level systems being totally unaware that time had halted and its environment changed without its knowledge. It started as something to do in the boredom why other teams were testing and winded up being their primary means of testing and troubleshooting. I was new to the group then but was delighted to see an idea be adopted that I created as a theoretical plaything. Self modifying code can be next to impossible to debug but not when it was being emulated by a Von Neumann machine.

Because stupidity is the combination of ignorance and confidence.
Without one of those ingredients stupidity cannot exist.

It's also a nice place to organize your publication history in a way that e.g. linkedin is ill-equiped to do.

For those who enjoyed the daring and - at times - hilariously funny activism of the #YesMen, there's a homepage where the real action takes place!

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.
