I'm convinced.  It's time to drop the hate and vote third party.

Politics doesn't have to be only about winning, it can also be about healing.
 
It's worth saying that a bit more clearly: you're more likely to vote Democratic if you hate Republicans than if you love Democrats, and vice versa. What parties need to do to keep you loyal isn't make you inspired. Rather, they need to make you scared.

I have to say, I am impressed that Vox didn't spin this as "Republicans driven by hatred of all that is good and decent, Democrats justly fear for their lives"

+Marla Hughes But, your point was that this was Vox trying to split the Republicans.  You could just as easily say this article is trying to split the Democrats.

In any case, the point isn't that scare tactics are used, it's that scare tactics are the most effective and that those who stick to a positive message are losers.

I'm sick of the game.  I'm sick of being spun up into hate.  I'd rather vote for something.

Is anybody else concerned with these guys having access to so much information on all of us?  Our unanonymized browsing history, our email.

They sometimes seem unserious and there was a story some years ago where a Google Engineer who was harassing a woman with access to her email.

What safeguard to they have against someone using their powers over us?  
 
What Idiot Did This?

Seriously... it isn't funny, and is beneath what I expect from Google's employees at any level.

We're trusting Google to provide us accurate and (relatively) unbiased information... trusting them with our personal data... trusting them to produce software that works... 

And trusting them to be grownups.

+Jay Gischer, Google Maps allows users to modify the maps to keep them very up to date (add new business openings, shift roads, add new roads, etc).  Someone abused this to put childish things in Google maps that have since been removed.  There is a review process, though I don't know the workings of the black box, they have likely modified it since this incident.  I am confident that this was the result of crowd-sourcing, not  because I think Google wouldn't do this (though I don't think they would) but because nearby was written on the map "the Google review process is crap."

That said, the original point is valid, I read via unconfirmed rumor that Google has stored every single search since inception.

If your programming language requires an IDE for you to be productive, the programming language is the problem, not the solution.

I'm partial to Textpad myself, but the idea (above) is the same.

Maybe, ultimately, #gamergate is about journalistic integrity.

Who has benefitted from all this controversy? Only tech media from what I can tell.
 
Gawker: Now baiting people to do dumb shit so they can make up more articles about #Gamergate .

It’s pretty clear that scientists aren’t any good yet at making global climate forecasts. Current temperatures are at or below the low range of all of the climate models. Nobody predicted the recent 17-year-long temperature plateau. And while they can come up with ad hoc explanations after the fact for why the data don’t match their models, the whole point of a forecast is to be able to get the right answer before the data comes in.
Ronald Bailey asks what it would take to convince the right that global warming is real. Well, here's what it would take.

Anyone who actually believes that they can predict how the climate of this planet will change during the next few centuries, is simply delusional. This entire "Climate Scare" farce is nothing but an unethical attempt by some people to manipulate other people, for political and financial gain.

So wait...I'm not allowed to look down on people who like Justin Bieber for having terrible taste in music?  And no one can look down on me for liking Selena Gomez' music?  

...there must be something wrong here!  MUST BE!  The world does not work like that!

(Except of course, that it does...)

David Ogilvy’s 1982 Memo “How to Write” Offers 10 Pieces of Timeless Advice. Especially applies to the age of social media. 
Nobody ever went broke writing a readable guide to writing in English, especially those that rise to the ranks of standard recommendations alongside Strunk and White's The Elements of Style and William Zinsser's On Writing Well. Both of those books endorse and exemplify the virtue of brevity, but even such short volumes take a great deal longer to read and internalize than this eminently to-the-point English style guide by the 'Pope of Modern Adv...

I just came up with a great idea after watching a news story about a dad who used his drone to watch his daughter walk to school: I'm going to develop a line of colorful drones with brushable hair, called My Little Droney. Please do not steal my idea, brilliant as it is, I need to get it trademarked. I will sue violators and make more drones.

On another note I wish my town had user accessible traffic cams at certain spots so you could check your route before you left for work! I think it is an idea whose time has come.

Catholic, Father of a young man with Autism, geek, other things
Introduction
Catholic, husband, father of a young man with Autism and a wonderful daughter who is a recent graduate from Miami University (Ohio, Miami was a University before Florida was a state) not sure what I do for a living but I think it has something to do with computers.

I think there's enough information below to figure out if you know me or not.  One thing I'm not is this guy.  I'm 32 years older than that guy!

I thought I was probably the oldest Jordan Henderson in the world, because the name Jordan wasn't popular as a first name in 1959, when I was born, but then I got some email that was supposed to go to a Doctor Jordan Henderson at a DoD Hospital in Texas.  I corresponded with him, determining I was certainly older than him, but he was Jordan Henderson the third, both his Father and Grandfather were named Jordan Henderson, so there is at least one and probably more than one older Jordan Henderson.

I reserve the right to delete comments that I think are off-topic, not of general interest, trolls (I'm arbiter) or for any reason really.  The single threaded discussion threads where most people only see the last comment is bad enough, but can be improved with editorial control, which I do take from time to time.

My High School chess club came in Second in the state in Indiana many years ago. I placed Second in the Utah Open Chess tournament once and I placed Second in the Salt Lake City Chess Club Championship once.
