#privacy is the freedom to act without being watched and thus, in a sense, to be who we really are — not who we want others to think we are. nytimes.com/2019/04/10/opinion

Ein riesiger bürokratischer Aufwand, um 50 Franken zurückzuzahlen. Kann ich als Haushalt da auch ein Opt-Out machen (und nochmehr bürokratischen Aufwand generieren)? Zumindest solange dann der Bund meine 50 Franken nicht in neue Kampfjets investiert?

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

Apple a few years ago: the future of television is apps.

Apple today: erm, sorry, we meant app, singular.

Time crystal is tied with transwarp for the most ridiculous treknobabble ever. At least the latter doesn’t sound like a B-movie cliché.

I want someone to build a computer that actually works like the one from Tron…
