Hello, Sky Net.
Years ago, the #DMCA was passed, giving unprecedented power to copyright holders (think music industry, movie industry, etc.) But the law did give the Library of Congress the ability to exempt certain things from that draconian law. That list gets reviewed every 3 years, so every 3 years organizations like the Electronicfrontierfoundation Eff petition to have more exemptions. to restore the balance of power between copyright owners and the public domain. This go around, the Library of Congress granted some good ones (they seem to be one of those government entities that is actually. apolitical and does what's best for the people).
For example, car manufacturers make software that runs on the computers that operate your car. Not just the navigation or radio, but the engine and brakes and gas and locks. In the past, they've claimed their software could not be reverse engineered because it was protected just copyright and the DMCA makes reverse engineering it illegal. But who would want to? Tinkerers, for sure. But also people. investigating, say, whether a software bug caused a car to accelerate uncontrollably, making the manufacturer liable for injuries and deaths. So companies often use the DMCA to cover their assets, not just protect their intellectual property.
After all, pre-DMCA copyright law already made it illegal to copy their software for commercial gain. The DMCA just added more protection to stop the good guys and bad guys alike before they could even get that far.
"And you have to be humble enough to be able to listen to other people and recognize that, sometimes, they might actually know more than you do, and be able to integrate that. There's nobody who knows everything. But we have an incredibly talented-filled nation."
Ben Carson is a specialized pediatric neurosurgeon. He knows a lot about performing surgery, especially on the brain.
Ben Carson does not know more than astronomers and physicists about astrophysics.
Ben Carson does not know more about evolution than biologists.
Ben Carson does not know more about the age of the earth than geologists.
But Ben Carson doesn't defer to experts in other fields when he already has his mind made up. He's using his faith poorly. He's using it as an excuse to avoid having to humbly admit that he doesn't know everything.
As president, would Ben Carson defer to his generals' knowledge on matters of security and war? Would he listen to experts about Net Neutrality or just the highest paying lobbyists? Would Ben Carson
I doubt it. Ben Carson doesn't seem to actually recognize that some people know more than him.

I'm a #DotNet programmer (formerly a #Java programmer) architecting and building enterprise applications (i.e. cloudweaving). I'm an #Android fan. I'm a husband. I'm a father. I'm a geek. I'm survivor of Fairfield High School ('94) and University of Cincinnati ('99). I know that I don't know everything but probably know more than I think I know while also thinking I know more than I actually do.
