Roger McNamee: 6 ways to save the internet
Like this talk, I do not understand what your point is. Is it a theoretical demonstration that entropy also apply to technology? “Things are changing” is so true, that it is an empty moto, like “water wets”. My point is you and Mr McNamee, measure the next BIG things in a strange currency, namely marketshare. A little history may help: Internet was a success because some geniuses build very low level protocols to communicate between computers while being able to withstand a lot of nuclear blast (in the 60’s). It was FREE in the sense the military is a tax payer enterprise. When universities used to connect (actually expending/creating the net itself) their student freely to the “internet” back in the 80’s, every Nerd was aware that market share had nothing to do with that breakthrough in the communication technology. When the vulture came (lately, as usual for feasting on rotten corps) late in the 90’th, the ‘real’ Internet (a communication infrastructure) start to be replaced by a mythical Internet (a consumer content). The only things that are saving the Internet are open/free technology/content. Wikipedia, and the likes. All the rest is noisy parasitism.

Roger McNamee: 6 ways to save the internet
Baloney. Or maybe this talk has to be indexed under comedy. Can you seriously mistake sales ratings with technology ? What does the Internet needs to be saving from anyway ? Commercials ? Porn ? Social ? Power outage ? That's hilarious to see people gloating about so-called technological revolution 20 years after they have taken place, and still trying to get on board with 'success'. I'll give you another prophecy: this trends to bull-sh*ttings (power point assisted please) to get money from no added value will stay constant for the millenniums to come whoever the players are (Apple or Pear) And really creative people will invents 1.0 things while braggers will talk about the 5.0 version of the old things...

Patricia Burchat: Shedding light on dark matter
Broken logic indeed, especially the ‘what if’ associated with ‘infinite’. No equation with an infinite term won’t get any results. Infinite is fun, it is also delusional. Don’t use it, instead make real science, not funny mathematics. Flipping a coin an infinite number of times, or having a big clown infinitely distant are delusions. I wish Einstein had succeed in killing that casino gambling an odds thing a century ago, but the truth is that if god do (or not) play dice, men crave to.
