In a highly specialized world where fungible work is mostly automated, it doesn't take more than a hint of potential unemployment to keep you tied to your desk. Who else will make the deadlines?

If the scale of this is not misrepresented, I don't think there is bigger news in the world. #HoloceneExtinction

Somebody tell me this is an unbalanced report!
Sea animals are dying off in massive numbers along the Pacific Coastline from Baja, Mexico all the way to Alaska and there may be nothing anyone can do about it.

Chemical enhancement highlights through artificial differentiation that natural differentiation (read: inequality) is poorly addressed and indeed often specifically ignored or denied. Now that it can be chosen, what questions may help us evolve our common sense?
 
This entire article sounds like an advertisement for Neurofuse. All the objections are compliments, like this one:

“The question is not whether they are safe, it’s whether they create an environment that is inherently unfair in terms of competition,” one regulator opined, on the condition of anonymity – using enhancing supplements in the workplace can create an unfair advantage”

My question is, are they like vitamins that can be taken under any circumstance just to maximize health or are they to be taken under certain conditions (eg. for energy, focus, memory, etc.)? Will they keep you up at night? Cause weight gain? Weight loss? Mood changes? And have any studies been done considering their effects on neuroimaging results of consumers?
As smart drugs like Neurofuse flood Silicon Valley and other start ups, some question 'has ambition and the will to win pushed us too far?' CAMBRIDGE – As scientific research around cognition has improved rapidly in the last few years, a growing number of entrepreneurs are discovering the new ...

+Udochi Okeke I gotta say, I haven't met anyone else who uses the word "subjectivist" the way I do. Not that I've tried. But many seem to understand. The only "concrete" reality we can grasp is our constantly changing personal perspective.

Read the whole thing. Think about what you can do. This is a big deal.
The rich, diverse, free web that I loved — and spent years in an Iranian jail for — is dying. Why is nobody stopping it?

The answer regarding technology is rarely to preserve the old paradigm. The point is that we need to find, endorse, and use, technology that advances the right ideals. Like voting, I think we all have some responsibility to do this.

Hey +Bitbucket, I can clone a wiki, but can I serve it? How to iterate locally without repeated push? How to work on a local branch or bookmark without publishing?

I call myself a subjectivist. To me, that means that I have no authority to deny the truth of your own experience. If you experience it, it is true. The challenge is for me to understand you. Does God exist? Absolutely. There are people who have experiences that convince them without doubt of the truth of God's existence. My challenge is to understand. Does God exist? Absolutely not. There are people who have experiences that convince them without doubt that there is no God. My challenge is to understand.

Does God exist for me? That depends on how I can understand how my audience uses the word "God"! God is a word first. A concept second. A truth? Only subjectively.

+Travis Wellman practicing, too! Actually, I'm not sure I'm fully radicalized in that I don't spend very much time trying to convert people.
