Fine, I'll do it. We should all do it, actually. Wikipedia is one of the treasures of our age.

Just noticed the automatic hash tagging. I wonder what sort of topic algorithm it is using? A bunch of labelled data about commonly used hash tags for certain sentences and posts. Then use that corpus to estimate the most likely hash using naive bayes?

Thank your local engineer that pushes boundaries and help push humanity forward. Personally I thank my father who was Chief Engineer on the Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble is just so amazing. Great human achievement that device. Good work by all engineers involved (including my father who was q Hubble engineer) on that one.
