Why don't we (you know, the PEOPLE) pass a law that only #politicians  with #compsci   #degree  are allowed to propose changes to laws affecting the #internet .   #OccupyDC  

via +Jeff Jockisch 
 
Only ~6-8 lawmakers understood the Internet and were willing to fight for user rights, which leaves consumers vulnerable.

This is a perfect example of why the #comcast   #timewarnercable   #merger  should not go through! #monopoly   #antitrust   #comcasttwc   #comcastsucks   #netneutrality   #netneutrality2014  
Streaming speeds for Comcast users jumped nearly 50% last month after Netflix reluctantly agreed to pay up for a direct connection to Comcast's network.

#ignorance  is #priceless ... nice #visualization  about how #warmongers  statistically don't know where #urkraine  is!
84% of Americans are unable to locate Ukraine on a world map; those that can't are more likely to support military intervention.

David Newman, a physicist at the University of Alaska, believes that smaller grids would reduce the likelihood of severe outages, such as the 2003 Northeast blackout that cut power to 50 million people in the United States and Canada for up to two days.

Newman and co-authors Benjamin Carreras, of BACV Solutions in Oak Ridge, Tenn., and Ian Dobson of Iowa State University make their case in the journal Chaos, which is produced by AIP Publishing (see link below).

Looks like the #navy  is actually doing active #research  on this #patent  I found years ago during my #greenenergy   #priorart  search.

This is very good for me ;)

How to deceive #sheeple  using #statistics .  If you #standyourground  and kill someone, then it doesn't count as a #murder  now does it?  Regardless of my (pro) stance, this misuse of statistics is pretty irritating to the #scientist  in me >:( 
 
Took me a couple of minutes to spot what's weird about this graph. You go to Maths Hell for this sort of thing, you horrible gun apologist, you.

+Chris Welty wow, even I messed up and misread the chart axis. Great catch! I thought the apparent reduction was due to reclassify #standyourground homicides to be somthing like "self defense resulting in aggressor death". Hats off to you :)

Autodidact Polymath and Iconoclast
Introduction
I'm a entrepreneurial businessman with many years of experience in Fortune 500 companies as well as several C-level executive and advisory positions at web startups. My primary focus is on Software Architecture and Electrical Engineering. I have invented and hold several patents (internationally) and am well versed in Patent & Copyright law. 

As a polymath and member of American Mensa my working knowledge within the STEM universe is extensive with specific spikes of high expertise. So go ahead and ask me about Carbonic Anhydrase ;) I've managed to have meaningful conversations with specialists in semiconductor physics, cellular biology, medicine/pharma, finance, gunsmithing and many other domains.

I currently do research at Harvard Medical School in Bioinformatics, Bibliometrics, Social Network Analysis (of the worldwide medical research community), and the Semantic Web.

For fun I research random STEM topics, invent stuff, write my own patents, do photography and, of course, provide consulting and mentoring services.
