    Am I allowed to laugh at this or is my temporary moment of humour going to be recorded and put against me in court for "Unsuitable take on serious situations".
    Blow me Away. A good song.

    For your examples, all the data could easily be recorded and saved for however long, and checked later, in the event that something notable happened in view of that sensor. This is pretty obvious.

    Face rec software is currently, so I've heard, better than human ability, FWIW.

    As for anti-terror (both state & non-state actors), greater transparency means reduced ability to hide atrocities, proxy wars, some types of WMD development, and so on.

    Deadork, human rights are not universals. They're social contracts. If you want to see a specific set of possible futures rather than a different set, then work to bring them about.

    Also, I hope you brought enough humour to share.

    Check the preview video.

    Much like eXistenZ, I'm not sure if this is awesome or lame or both.

    The comments are good. I think the DoD should start sending copies of Deus Ex to the troops.

    I think it's more fun to be evil-ish in games because most of the NPCs (including your allies) are unlikable dolts.

    But all too often, doesn't it seem like you get better rewards for being "good"? At best, in a game like Neverwinter Nights or Planescape Torment, you can scam some extra cash out of people, but everyone knows that Money is Useless. That's not very fair.

    I would like to add a link to this interesting discussion. I found it at the UWiki, and in my opinion, it is very readable.

    Science theory can solve a lot of problems and confusion. Even if creationists do their best to mess things up.

    I didn't read the comments, but from the article, he was misrepresenting modern cosmology, to say the least. There are few models I know of in which time is meaningful before the Big Bang; it's typically undefined. The author has perhaps not heard of epistemology (a common complaint of mine ).

    (Good) Science has (not-always clearly-delineated) limits on what can have probability distributions justifiably put over it.

    There's a distinction between cosmology and metaphysics. The former explains via functional models which create ever more correct predictions, while acknowledging limits of evidence gathering, while the later is the particular bent of fairytailers, those who think Godel is a kind of cheese, and persons scared of math, generally.

    I received this out of the blue a few weeks ago. I'd apparently participated in a relevant survey I'd heard about on WTAtalk, so they were nice enough to send it free. I'd highly recommend the executive summary on the site, as I was pleasantly surprised that they weren't horribly unawares of AGI, molecular nanotech, synth meat, just-in-time training, and so on.

    May you live in interesting times, etc.

    Why bother getting an expensive heatsink for overclocking when you can get a chip that operates at over 1,000 degrees F?

    Some of my favorites didn't make the list...in fact, I've played next to none of them! Let the good times roll.

    #Swarm.Pickup on irc.quakenet.org is the best place to play organised Aswarm games and for the latest community chat and updates. #Swarm.Pickup games are hosted on super smooth http://www.alienswarm.de/ servers and run both Campaign and Single mission gametypes! (blatantly mashed up from the swarm v1.1 change log)
    In the interest of reviving the useless waffle lost in the death of the spambox (and maybe like, setting up a few games) I feel it is my Swarm related duty to remind the oldies and inform the newbies of this wonderful irc based service!
    ..it's safer here.
