This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for the free access to information provided by companies like Google, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and Microsoft through Internet search engines. But the European Parliament is trying to take this away.

"The European Parliament called on EU member states and the European Commission to break down barriers to the growth of the EU's digital single market in a resolution voted on Thursday. MEPs also stressed the need to prevent online companies from abusing dominant positions by enforcing EU competition rules and unbundling search engines from other commercial services."

The European Parliament is trying to detach Google Search and all other search engines from all of the things that fund them, like ads. This would force Google and other search engines to adopt a subscription model, where users have to pay a regular fee to be able to search the web. Suddenly, the world no longer has free access to information via the Internet. Small business websites that depend on being found with search engines will go out of business because vastly fewer people will be using them. Developing nations and the less privileged to which access to information on the Internet is the most valuable will be significantly hurt by this. I do not exaggerate when I say that I believe that this would destroy the free and open Internet as we know it.

I'm unequivocally opposed to the European Parliament in this matter.

Google's spam team is penalizing Google Plus for spammy SEO practices. Woah.

I'm disappointed to see that Intel bought into (and encouraged) all of this media hype over something that, while remarkable given his age, has yet to demonstrate itself to be any sort of a game-changer. The statistics quoted at the end ("168 times faster, 400 times more sensitive, and 26,000 times less expensive than the medical standard") are at best extremely misleading and at worst simply not true. Furthermore, they ignore the fact that it has yet to be demonstrated that this test is even reliable (let alone practical). Indeed, previous research suggests that the method he's using could lead to significant false positives.

The work will deserve serious accolades when, and only when, it has actually demonstrated real advances in treatment, or at the very least been published in a peer-reviewed journal. Not theoretical "this is how it could be, assuming X, Y, and Z; and ignoring W".

Cancer is an incredibly difficult field; it deserves a higher level of intellectual integrity and adherence to rigor than what Intel has demonstrated thus far.

The President’s proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget details were released last week. For the next several years, the budget proposes a steady as she goes plan, but with two “what are they thinking?” surprises.

I eat here regularly, and have always loved their Chow Mein and Orange Chicken. The staff are friendly and make an effort to remember customers.

I've always had a great experience here. Staff are friendly, and you can't really beat the Orange Chicken. Although, I do wish they would switch to the slicker type of carry-out container.

Went to see Gravity at this theater. The IMAX screen size was really small - not nearly large enough for any sort of movie like Gravity, and the theater volume was noticeably lower than usual. The theater lights were very distracting during some of the film's darker shots. It was not a very immersive experience. If you don't care about seeing the film how it was intended to be seen, then I guess this theater will be OK for you.
