Most mainstream websites are now so gummed up with commercial crap that they are unusable.
Or what happens when we don't want to pay for content... - Todd Hoff
There has to be a better way to pay for content. - Sean McBride
One option: 1 click to pay for a day, week, month or year of ad-free content on a given website. - Sean McBride
What a joy it is to watch commercial-free films and TV series on Netflix. - Sean McBride
Some have figured out how to make libraries pay, and still have some commercial sales crap on the sides. - Joe
Reading ebooks and etexts on big screen TVs -- a viable activity? I think maybe.

One can precisely situate everything in space and time with place/time and time/place vectors (trees).
And all of those vectors can be situated and connected on a single semantic grid. - Sean McBride
The best way to undermine the effectiveness of your social media posts is to load them up with obscenities and verbal abuse.
Think of angry and incoherent street corner drunks -- do you listen to them or avoid them? - Sean McBride

"Deniers cannot selectively choose the data they wish to use while rejecting the entire data set from consideration. It is unacceptable to focus arbitrarily on only the period supporting their view while ignoring the extended global temperature record. Data covering most of the industrial era, 1880-present, are shown below." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

Isaac Asimov's Newly Published 1959 Paper for DARPA on Creativity
"Isaac Asimov was one of the great sci-fi writers of the 20th century. So naturally, at the dawn of the space age, the military wanted to tap his brain. In 1959 he was approached by ARPA (now known as DARPA) to "think outside of the box" about how ideas are formed. His brief work for the organization has never been published, until today." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"As MIT Technology Review explains, Asimov took a few meetings with ARPA and Allied Research Associates in Boston, but ultimately decided against long term involvement with the organizations. Asimov was apparently afraid that any access to classified military material would limit his freedom of expression. And rightly so, since it would have no doubt hampered his ability to publish fiction freely. However, Asimov did produce a single paper for the organization that has never been published until today." - Sean McBride
"Probably more inhibiting than anything else is a feeling of responsibility. The great ideas of the ages have come from people who weren't paid to have great ideas, but were paid to be teachers or patent clerks or petty officials, or were not paid at all. The great ideas came as side issues. To feel guilty because one has not earned one's salary because one has not had a great idea is the surest way, it seems to me, of making it certain that no great idea will come in the next time either." - Sean McBride

"One of the things I first enjoyed when I was introduced to philosophy was its recursive nature: we could use thought to investigate the nature, the rules, the structure and the limits of thought itself (and what that could tell us about the human mind). For a very similar reason I have a certain appreciation and fondness for linguistics. Most of our communication takes place through language, and linguists are hard at work trying to understand what they can about human cognition, nature and culture, by paying close attention to the way in which we use language." - Sean McBride
"In the following lecture, Steven Pinker provides a fascinating introduction to questions such as how syntax (the study of linguistic structure), phonology (the study of sound), semantics (the study of meaning) and pragmatics (the study of the social and cultural role and context of language), all help us to understand how language works. He also provides a lesson on the nature of the... more... - Sean McBride

Self-driving cars will be safer than us. How long until human drivers are banned? http://zite.to/1FjJhwn
30 years, tops, before humans are banned from driving on most public U.S. roadways In urban areas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Possibly sooner. - Sean McBride
many many decades. - Brian Johns
Cars individual transportation modules may themselves be banned long before "driverless" cars become even a blip on the radar much less human operators banned Please See aircraft and locomotives et al - WarLord
The article brings up a valid point. It may be more about legal and ethical issues than technical ones. Besides, I want to see a driverless vehicle drive me to work in winter time with snow and ice covered roads through four foot snow drifts without clear visual references as to where the road actually is. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

News Fact-checking: One Practical Application of Linked Statistics https://semstats2014.files.wordpress.com/2014...
"This paper presents an example of practical application of Linked Statistics to the problem of checking facts in news articles. We consider a use case of verifying a news article that exploits statistical facts from the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT). To realise the use case, we publish a subset of ISTAT as Linked Data, thus, contributing to the presence of statistics on the Web of Data. We discuss how links from the news article to LinkedSTAT can enable creation of automated tools and services for fact-checking. We received a positive evaluation of our demo use case from ISTAT experts. With our work we hope to promote the value that could be obtained by publishing statistics as Linked Data by official statistical agencies and organisations." - Sean McBride
