This:

"Why are there marriage “licenses” – a permission slip granted or denied by the state – rather than just contracts like any other?"

And this:

"As long as government is the decision maker, the voting citizenry imagines itself to have a stake in the shape of decisions that should only involve those party to the exchange."
 
"Why does government stand in the position to veto the choices of two people who want to commit to each other?"
As long as the state decides what marriage means, voters will imagine themselves to have a stake in others' personal lives.

Except that i and other people have answered this question lots of times.  You're talking about a lovely future, but one that requires global cooperation.

My first thoughts exactly: the fever dreams of neural networks.
 
Do Androids dream? Going deeper into 'Deep Machine Learning'

When the machines eventually rise and destroy mankind, they'll look back at these pictures the way we do at cave paintings. No, I'm just kidding *cough* - No, seriously, this is probably the coolest thing ever!

Why would publishers not just detect when their ads are being blocked and then not serve their content to those browsers?
New submitter Mickeycaskill writes: Adblock Plus adds large scale deployment (LSD) to version 1.9 of its software, allowing IT managers to block adverts on thousands of computers in one go, months after a German court ruled the practice was legal. The move is likely to concern online publishers who ...

Then publishers will move to "native advertising", which is unblockable since by definition it is identical to content.

"Remember: an idea is like a seed.

It can only turn into a tree if you kill all of the birds trying to eat it."

I was so naive when we were raising our children. I failed to protect any of our valuable parenting techniques. New parents, don't make the same mistake. Watch this helpful tutorial.

"...artist Joe Davis, now in residence at Church's lab, has announced plans to encode bits of Wikipedia into a particularly old strain of apple, so that he can create 'a living, literal tree of knowledge.'"

Just don't eat the apples, right?
Science is building storage mediums for the distant future. But what information will we preserve? And will anyone be able to read it?

From the article:

This kind of wide-ranging usage led Microsoft's Scott Hanselman to dub JavaScript the "assembly language for the Web,"

I've always felt this way. That is why I do my client-side browser coding in Dart and compile it to JavaScript.

Sure, there is also TypeScript, but its code just doesn't feel as readable to me as Dart. Then again, Dart does occasionally give me Java nightmares.

I would get really excited about WebAssembly if it ever ends up as a target architecture backend for compilers like LLVM and gcc. Even if a special runtime library, new APIs, etc., were required for DOM manipulations, etc., I would certainly like to write browser client-side code in a nice programming language like Go someday.

#dartlang   #golang   #WebAssembly
The next step in the evolution of JavaScript and asm.js is to do away with both of them.

Ever wondered just "what is coding?"

Have time to read 38,000 words?
The world belongs to people who code. Those who don’t understand will be left behind.

A Steampunk child car seat. Sweet!

They didn't have these when my children were that age. :(
