General Debate  - 
 
A few day earlier, while I participate in a debate (see below), +Ed Zaleski states Google wields more power than many standalone nations as it controls information. If it continues to do so, it may qualify as its own virtual nation. I thought it is very interesting and I wonder indeed, can a virtual nation be form. Can Google or any other social media eventually become virtual nations? 
My thought is why not? The social media exist in virtual world, have virtual territories and followers.

+Millie Weston internet is no different from the real world. They have the same people in them. The fact is, in internet, people thinks they can be whatever they can be and sometimes this can be scary.

General Debate  - 
 
Does modern technology help people get together better? Will it eventually united all the nations on earth together? Because of the Internet, we are glued to the computer, there are times I thought people were being isolated from the society because of it. When think a little more, people are communicating in a different level. Our children are not talking to the neighbors' as much, but they are talking and playing games with children all over the world. With the help of different software (e.g one on this post), I think we are one step closer to the united the world. Ready for United Federation Starfleet?
 
Google Purchases Word Lens - Makes it Free

Google recently acquired Word Lens, an app that translates foreign languages in real time using Android and iPhone cameras.

It's easy to see why Google would want to own it -- its stated mission is to make all the world's information searchable in any language -- and Google Translate generally does this quite well, at least for web pages.

The app is currently available to download for free from both the App Store for iPhone and iPad and the Google Play Store for Android owners.

Google has purchased Word Lens, an impressive app that translates foreign languages in real time using the iPhone and Android smartphone built-in camera. It's now free for a limited time.

+pm tang Yeah good to hear your "voice" too!!
Hahaha, of course no mistress. I didn't really mean it. I was just following +ian james's example.

Coming back to subject, I think +ian james means it differently. He says that it doesn't matter whether or not a person is being careful with his activities on the web, one way or the other the thing is known. According to him, if a person smacks his wife, would the children share it with their grandpa via email. Or would the wife tell her mother about it. He says no one is a saint and everyone has secrets. And then he took you as as his example.
When I read it, I really had to laugh. I mean fine, yeah, not safe on the internet. But who's the one having access to the email? who is the one snooping skype calls? Its not you and I or Ian. But the NSA and other agencies as well. And so the NSA is not really going to publish a guy's infidelity. If his online history is not visible to him, then it isn't visible to us either. Nor to his boss or his next client. So what is Ian saying?!!!

Accept of course the agencies. If they ever find that person threatning, they will simply pull out is file and find out everything about him. His place of birth, orgin, the place he lives and places he lived earlier. Every girl he talked to or had an affair with, et cetra.

Are we (the U.S.) the stubborn one?
Do we still think we are the center of the universe and we will change at the pace we want to change?
The fact that it's not a feature in the average American home does not bode well for the country's prosperity. Seriously.

Empty threat? If China does take over the islands, would/should the US intervene? 
Yes, I believe we (US) should and we will for the sake of World Peace, but not to help countries like Philippine, Japan, and Vietnam because I don’t believe these countries are worth American lives to defend for simply because they don’t share our values. I don’t think we should start a war with China or use sanctions again China because sanctions would not only not work but it would unite China and Russia once again.  I believe just sending ships to stop China from advancing is good enough.

+Max Flynn the sanctions lead directly to six way talks and a change in China's policy stance towards North Korea, this is exactly what UN are good at, talk… I thought the whole idea of UN is to maintain international peace and security. Did they do anything with the Terrorism? What happened 1968 hijacking of El Al Israel Flight 426, they did anything to Palestinian terrorist organization? What about Sri Lanka and Rwanda? What about 911, did they do anything with the Al Qaeda and the Taliban? How about stopping Russia from going into Ukraine? Stop drinking the Kool aid and get down from your high horse. Sorry, I didn’t bush aside the geo-political events, I just look at it at a different angle.

Is this an example of enemy of my enemy is my friend?
what about friends like these who needs enemies?
Now I am confuse.... Just wonder how long this friendship (US/Iran) will last?
 
The weeklong onslaught by the Al Qaeda splinter group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS,  in Iraq has pushed the U.S. and Iran to discuss collaborating against a common foe, although the White House ruled out any joint military operations.

Come across this article and I started to wonder. Is American Stubborn, still think we are the center of the Universe or we change when we want to? 
My opinion is we (American) did not travel enough to see the world and what others have to offer. 
The fact that it's not a feature in the average American home does not bode well for the country's prosperity. Seriously.

+pm tang Yeah that's bachelor of engineering. I would go for masters afterward. I thank you for your concern about me. Yes, two years to go. Plenty of time to think. 
I agree with the quality of education in US being good. I will give some thought to it. 

I was recently talking to some people, and they told me that if I have to choose between china and Pakistan, I should go for pak. They told me, universities in Pak are better and among the highest ranking universities in the world. They said china universities don't have that much of an international worth. But Pak does.

Well, I wish you luck in life too. Its been nice talking to you. You and yin were the first chinese guys to whom I talked to in length.
I had met some before but never talked in detail. 

Social security number? That only works in US. If you ask about it to an average civilian on the street in pak, he would blink twice and then move on! But I understand what you mean. And I will act upon your advice. I am more care free because I am not an adult and neither do I have a credit card. DOB's are internationally taken care of because most people use them as passwords. But as the world is progresssing, and with bugs around, the habit of using DOBs as passwords is long abandoned.

( PS: Its all a joke, really. It would be a matter of a few moments to crack my passwords , if the NSA ever wishes to.)

Do you ever have that feeling: there is a side of me didn't want Flight 370 to be found because if it was not found, there is a hope people on broad still alive. This in term, will keep some of these family members to keep on living. I can't bear to think what is on the mother of the son (the only son she has) whose son is in the plane.
The search, which includes the Royal Navy, is up against the clock as the device is expected to run out of battery by tomorrow
