                              You still think 4G #LTE or #USB3 are fast?

#DidYouKnow that: "A single sperm has 37.5MB of DNA information in it That means a normal ejaculation represents a data transfer of around 1,587TB."

So! to all of you #Nerds if your kids ask you how they were born just tell them:

- "Well baby after daddy uploads his own file to mommy's HDD she decompresses and uses a special compiler to code the data."

and if the kid is clever enough to ask why didn't she accept all the candidates, tell him that:

- "it's because mommy has a firewall installed with an #IDS & #IPS mechanism to prevent #DoS or #DDoS attacks plus the other port always give the error message 'invalid device is attached', the problem might also come from the fact that the destination might not have enough space too."

#Conclusion : With that power i can shutdown all the data-centers in this planet in less than 12 hours!

An American Corporation: You have 2 cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyze why the cow dropped dead.
A French Corporation: You have 2 cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.
Japanese Corporation: You have 2 cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called Cowkimon and market them Worldwide.
An Italian Corporation: You have 2 cows, but you don't know where they are. You break for lunch.
A Swiss Corporation: You have 5000 cows. None of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.
Chinese Corporation: You have 2 cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported the numbers.
An Iraqi Corporation: Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No one believes you and they bomb your arse. You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a Democracy.......

A Brazilian Corporation: You have 2 cows. You pay taxes for 6 cows. You have to sell one cow in order to pay the taxes. Your remaining cow gets sick and dies while waiting for availability in the public vet hospital.
Russia: You have two cows. Since they are both female, if you happen to keep them in the same stable you will pay a 5,000 rouble fine for homosexual propaganda.
PETA: You have two cows. You kill them both. You then use naked women to convince other people that killing cows is wrong.
Moffat: You have two cows. Both of them are your daughters time traveling from the past where they had a brief love affair with Da Vinci making you the rightful Queen of England. As you assume the throne, you throw them off a building.

Ethereum's Alternative Blockchain

This is a good, accessible, and informative blog post about the latest developments with Ethereum, its alternative blockchain protocol, and focus on smart contracts and decentralised applications, and of course its relation to Bitcoin. 

The Business Imperative Behind the Ethereum Vision: 

The genius behind Ethereum is this magical network of computers that enables a new type of software applications: the truly decentralized ones, based on embedding the logic of trust inside small programs and distributing them to run on its blockchain. It is based on a 3-tier architecture, comprising an advanced browser as the client, the blockchain ledger as a shared resource, and a virtual network of computers that run smart business logic programs in a decentralized way.

The Ethereum transaction ledger can be used to securely execute a wide variety of services including: voting systems, domain name registries, financial exchanges, crowdfunding platforms, company governance, self-enforcing contracts and agreements, intellectual property, smart property, and distributed autonomous organisations.

The piece is passionate and outlines an expansive vision for Ethereum's promise and blockchain technology in general. Worth a read to keep up to date with the space and (re)consider future possibilities out of idle interest or direct engagement. The main blog itself has a number of good and useful entries.
