    I’m not expert on autism, but having your kid taught by internet seems a bit of a stretch for me to wrap my mind around. I would want as much socialization as possible for regular kids, but more importantly for those children with special needs. I’m not even buying into the argument that telepresence teaching [...]

    Didn’t most everybody want to send all the Black people back to Africa after the war? Liberia comes to mind. I don’t want to do the search, but whoever pointed out that the Emancipation Proclamation came later on and only applied to certain Blacks is onto something. I don’t think we should overlook the role [...]

Well, that’s where it gets a little tricky isn’t it? It’s in the area of what I call “borderline crimes” [...]

    On the flip side, you fill all those warranty surveys out with the express knowledge that you are going to generate gobs of expensive advertising from the “savvy” marketing people who mine it, comforted by the knowledge that you will NEVER buy any of the junk they’re peddling, thereby increasing their marketing costs relative to [...]

    I was surprised that Germany didn’t offer immediate asylum based on their hostile feelings toward the Stasi. I have been living in Germany for a few years now and will gladly testify as to the hostility to the collection of surveillance by general public. Google streetview is extremely limited here. I was just told that [...]
