Interesting. Why do you say "What do you think about machines who think" ?

The meatspace equivalent to not wiping your devices before getting rid of them...
 
They say no press is bad press...

When Texas plumber Mark Oberholtzer traded in his black Ford F-250 pickup truck, he expected it would live a second life in the hands of new owners, but probably not these owners.

Oberholtzer's Texas City plumbing company, Mark-1 Plumbing, has been inundated with threats after a photo of his old Ford work truck appeared on a terrorist Twitter feed, equipped with an anti-aircraft gun in the bed and still bearing the company logo on the door.
Mark-1 Plumbing's old truck showed up on Twitter as a Syrian terrorist weapon, with Mark-1's phone number on the door. Not good.

I thought this a legal issue, not a tech issue, that faxes were legally binding in a way that merely scanned/emailed documents aren't.  Anyone know enough to confirm/deny that?

yup. Dogshit thing to do.
 
Really, really shitty move by +Groupon Trying to steal the trademark from an open source project that has been around for 17 years #GNOME
"GNOME" has been a familiar name in software for the past 17 years, and a registered trademark since 2006. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop ...

Hey, car nuts, while I've seen some papers on electrically augmenting turbochargers in diesels and gas turbine engines, what is the current thinking about this for gas ic engines? Too complicated with not enough of a benefit?

Wait, I guess that's different (although it accomplishes many similar goals). Sorry.

Impostor syndrome is a thing, I guess, but I prefer 'total fraud' syndrome, where you imagine yourself to be a rakish con-man grifting the world so slyly that no one has called you on it yet. 

It's more fun than impostor syndrome, and the outfits are nicer.
