In 1993 (edit: actually 1988, I think) Isaac Asimov predicts that computers will be important for learning, and suggests that everyone will have one.

This is what I like about reading science fiction.  The 1993 interview is inspiring, and I look for similarly inspiring work from today's authors.
 
The present is a derivative work of the science fiction of the past.
Can we abolish patents now?

Asimov: the internet, online learning, personal computers in the hands of everyone,   Isaac Asimov predicted the Internet of today 20 years ago
Clarke: The internet and home computers. Arthur C. Clarke Predicts the Internet & PC
Or... Kubrick and his iPads: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQ8pQVDyaLo ht/ +Yonatan Zunger and his followers.

This is really funny.

"An impossibly large buffer error is even worse, because these errors often linger in the background, quietly overwriting your state with evil; if a misaligned memory access is like a criminal burning down your house in a fail-stop manner, an impossibly large buffer error is like a criminal who breaks into your house, sprinkles sand atop random bedsheets and toothbrushes, and
then waits for you to slowly discover that your world has been tainted by madness."
 
I am a systems programmer.  Mickens's rant is painful, funny, and true.

Is there really no way to see who is online in the GTalk replacement? What is the use of a chat program where you can't see who's available to chat?

Normally I use online status to decide whether to call or send an IM.

Decent food nearby and nice staff. My room was pretty small and there were some ants on the floor, but it worked for me. Restaurants décents à proximité, et personnel agréable. Ma chambre était petit et il y avaient des fourmis sur le plancher, mais ça marche.
