improving flow during high traffic periods is what's known as a Bacterial Foraging Optimisation (BFO) algorithm. The algorithm varies when and for how long a given light is red or green. So, for example, the algorithm has an almost traffic cop-like sense for which road at an intersection has a higher volume of traffic, and when to strategically deprioritise traffic that may be waiting on a less-used road.

When marginal costs are zero, and the cost of publishing are below 100$ we can be sure the classic book publishing model is going to die. Fast.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at my puny iPhone 4 with disgust, wishing with all my might that it were bigger. It’s too portable, too p

The pluses and minuses of ebooks, explained in this carefully written article. Why are we resisting innovation? Because for all it brings it also takes a bit:

"What is it that these literary men and women are afraid of losing should the paper novel really go into decline? Surely not the cover, so often a repository of misleading images and tediously fulsome endorsements. Surely not the pleasure of running fingers and eyes over quality paper, something that hardly alters whether one is reading Jane Austen or Dan Brown. Hopefully it is not the quality of the paper that determines our appreciation for the classics.


Could it be the fact that the e-book thwarts our ability to find particular lines by remembering their position on the page? Or our love of scribbling comments (of praise and disgust) in the margin? It’s true that on first engagement with the e-book we become aware of all kinds of habits that are no longer possible, skills developed over many years that are no longer relevant. We can’t so easily flick through the pages to see where the present chapter ends, or whether so and so is going to die now or later."

a lost generation?
Surging Greek and Portuguese bond yields? Plunging Italian bank stocks? The projected GDP of the Eurozone? In the grand scheme of things, while certainly disturbing, none of these data points actually...

Or maybe more lost generations... When I graduated in the eighties, there also was a severe crisis going on. People with university degrees wound up in jobs like garbage collectors; I myself started my working career - after 6 years of university and a 9.5 for my thesis or however you call it - as a bloody secretary. Still remember how I tried to dress properly and smile properly and in general: blend in with my role. Although I didn't remain a secretary for long - I failed miserably at "blending in", and still do - the situation in the eighties has for sure influenced the rest of my working career.

Nice that you follow Zero Hedge! It is one one of my favourite sites at the moment, together with the "Financial War Reports" site by Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert (http://maxkeiser.com/).
