is that just an Australian-ism? Is the exclamation point offensive? If you're from the US, what do you think I mean by this?

There are three companies in the country which run almost all of its private prisons: GEO, CCA, and MTC. This is a plot of the stock prices of the two public ones (GEO and CCA) today, after the Department of Justice announced that the Federal government was done with private prisons: the Deputy AG has directed the department to "substantially reduce" or decline to renew expiring contracts with all of them. [1]

It would be hard to find a set of companies that I would be happier to see fail. If you had to come up with an outrageous example of "perverse incentives," private prisons would top the list: these companies' contracts with states and localities specify minimum numbers of people that these governments must imprison, at which point they are handed over to these companies for use as "free" labor.

[2] Many people don't notice the loophole in the 13th Amendment: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." It took about seven years after the Civil War for people to realize the full economic value of this loophole, that you could arrest people on any charge and then use them as slave labor. Elaborate systems of kickbacks to judges and arrest quotas showed up almost immediately, and have been immensely profitable ever since)___

Someone, probably the big tech companies, needs to fund a world-scale white hat hacking operation that discovers and helps remediate (and ultimately publishes) zero days in tech infrastructure. This "weaponised hacks" shit needs to be stopped.

Obviously the right thing to do would be for the US executive to direct the NSA to turn it's hacking activities in this direction. But we all know that's never going to happen; all parties involved seem to be determined to be the bad guys because realpolitik or terrorists or some shit. ie: empire.

I absolutely agree with this. A phone call is like walking into a room shouting "Stop! Stop! Me me me!"

Something better is messaging apps with calling and presence. You can see someone is online, chat with them, and if a call is appropriate say "how about a call".

Phone Calls are Rude

If you're 30 or over, you may remember how back in the 80s and 90s, calling during dinner hours was considered rude. The hours between 5-7 were for the family, and you'd never have your meal interrupted by a phone call. But, maybe that was just a Midwest thing.

Prior to the phone, the main way to contact someone was via a letter. The first asynchronous form of human communication. Along comes the phone, and it basically kills most personal mail by fixing the latency problem. In fact, I don't think I've written a personal letter in my entire life. However, calls were a step backwards in a sense: phone calls are synchronous, you need to answer them and interact, or not get the message at all (answering machines aside).

With the Internet being so pervasive; email, texting, and instant messenger is in the progress of killing the phone. The only phone calls I make now seem to be to customer service departments. I don't even call for takeout/delivery anymore, now that you can do that online. Obviously, the need for live communication will never disappear, but there are plenty of better, unintrusive ways, to contact people that let them respond on their own time and leisure.

When I get a phone call now, I interpret it as someone saying: Stop doing whatever you are doing now, because whatever I am calling about is more important than that. Chances are, it really wasn't. Phone calls are rude.



Obviously, family and close friends are exempt... usually.___I absolutely agree with this. A phone call is like walking into a room shouting "Stop! Stop! Me me me!"

Interview with John Krafcik, CEO of Google's Self-Driving Car Project. "Well, first of all, it's a tragedy. I mean, Joshua Brown lost his life. A couple of key points, though. One is, he was one of probably a hundred or so people who died that day in automotive fatalities, in the US alone."

"But we need to make sure we're using the right language when we talk about what happened with that accident, because that wasn't a self-driving car, what we refer to as an L4, or fully autonomous car. That was a car with traffic-aware cruise control and a lane-keeping function -- an L2, where, for better or worse, it was the responsibility of the driver to be cautious.

"But we need to make sure we're using the right language when we talk about what happened with that accident, because that wasn't a self-driving car, what we refer to as an L4, or fully autonomous car. That was a car with traffic-aware cruise control and a lane-keeping function -- an L2, where, for better or worse, it was the responsibility of the driver to be cautious. We, as humans, are fallible creatures. [The crash] confirms our sense that the route to full autonomy, though much harder, is the right route."

"Back in 2012 we had a technology that was very similar. We let Google employees test it, after lengthy training sessions imploring them to pay attention at all times. We wanted to see how they were interacting with the technology. After three months we saw enough to say this is definitely a problem. People would take their eyes off the road for some period, look down at their phones and start texting while in the driver's seat."

"That takes us to the fundamental conundrum of the L2 semiautonomous solutions: As they get better and better, but not quite good enough for humans to zone out entirely, then risk increases. So we need to take the human out of the loop. With L4, which is our focus at Google, the idea is, you don't need a steering wheel or controls because we're going to take care of everything, and you just have to say, 'I want to go to that destination,' and the car will take you there."

Play the audio file at the bottom of the post, too -- there's a chat about an autonomous car while riding in one, and more interview of John Krafcik (different from the text).___

I don't agree with +Yonatan Zunger on this at all, particularly wrt Australia.

In the US you have a voting system which turns a third party vote into an effective non-vote, but in Australia our votes eventually count, usually for one of the major parties, so there's that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_system_of_Australia

As to One Nation getting four senate seats, well, a lot of people have senate seats. It's been treated as a foregone conclusion that the LNP (the government) will need to deal with One Nation in order to pass legislation, but that's not entirely true.

The LNP could deal with the Greens or Labor to get legislation through. It's just that a lot of what they want to do is horrible right wing crap (destroying the social safety net, funnelling money to rich people, torturing asylum seekers, indigenous people, the... more »

Some things I need to say which will probably be fairly unpopular:

(1) Pauline Hanson is an excellent example of why I think multiparty democracy is a terrible idea. Increasing the political power of people at the fringes might help you get your particular favorite idea represented – but it also lets other people do that. Generally, it moves political power away from the center and towards the edges. And so you end up with people like this having the effective deciding vote in legislatures, able to block any bill if they don't get their way.

(2) In related news, Jill Stein is now talking about how wonderful Julian Assange is. If you haven't been following what Assange and his cronies have been up to lately, he's been (a) openly waging a campaign against Clinton, saying he's doing this specifically to harm her and he doesn't care what else happens, (b) doing massive data dumps without bothering to redact sensitive personal information about people who are in no way implicated in wrongdoing (e.g., people's SSN's and home addresses), and (c) going off on thoroughly anti-Semitic rants in public. In case you haven't noticed it, Julian Assange is grade-A scum who happens to have been involved in some decent things in the past – but, AFAICT, anything good he's done has been by chance, not design.

Stein's self-affiliation with him only serves to lower her even further in my eyes. (Her policy statements did a great deal to do so before this, ranging from her love affair with anti-vaxxers to her lengthy screed against the rights of sex workers)

(3) For those who think that third parties serve an important role in the process, I have to say: I completely and utterly disagree.

Third parties would play an important role if the purpose of elections were for people to express their political opinions, and for the country to come to some kind of conclusion as to how its government should operate at a basic level. But that's not what elections do. That's the purpose of the public square, of public discussion and debate. Elections have a very specific and concrete purpose: to choose who takes various elective offices. That's all they do.

A vote for a third party is simply a fancy way to abstain; it doesn't actually increase the chances that the third party will get funding in the future, or that their ideas will be more listened to, because these parties are the fringe of the fringe: they are so interested in the "purity of their ideals" that they won't even enter into the process of actual dealmaking, coalition-building, and so on. Their ideas will never have an effect, because they have given up on talking to the main bulk of the country and are instead spending their time either preaching to the choir or trying to convert the handful of people who are so far on the edge of their own parties that they're about to abstain anyway.

And to be brutally honest: abstention from important elections on matters of principle is irresponsible.

Elections do come down to small numbers of votes. Bush v. Gore came down to roughly 600 votes' difference. Local elections, even statewide elections, can come down to even less. And when you not only abstain, but encourage others to do so, you stand the risk of actually influencing the election – but rarely in the way you want. Because if you encourage people who are leaning mostly your way to cast a protest vote, you're telling people who would vote for a candidate that mostly agrees with you to stay home. Whether you're on the left or the right, what that does is cast half a vote for the other side.

Do not tell me that both of the candidates are the same. To say that at this point goes beyond the level of "deliberately obtuse." You know they aren't.

Do not tell me that neither of the candidates is speaking about the things you care about. There may be the one thing you care about more than anything else, but whoever is President, and whoever controls Congress, is going to be making decisions about a lot of things, including things you care about a great deal. You do not get to choose from all the people in the world, or from all the positions in the world, but you do get to choose between two options, and they aren't the same. They will not appoint the same people to the courts, they will not start the same wars, they will not do the same things to the economy.

(4) If you are seriously so isolated that you think you would do equally well, or badly, under either of them, then think about what would happen to the rest of the people in the country. They wouldn't.

(5) If you seriously don't care and just want to watch the world burn, then I stand corrected: please, go vote for a third party. Or stay home. Or emigrate. Those of us who have to live here don't welcome you.___I don't agree with +Yonatan Zunger on this at all, particularly wrt Australia.

In the US you have a voting system which turns a third party vote into an effective non-vote, but in Australia our votes eventually count, usually for one of the major parties, so there's that.

As to One Nation getting four senate seats, well, a lot of people have senate seats. It's been treated as a foregone conclusion that the LNP (the government) will need to deal with One Nation in order to pass legislation, but that's not entirely true.

The LNP could deal with the Greens or Labor to get legislation through. It's just that a lot of what they want to do is horrible right wing crap (destroying the social safety net, funnelling money to rich people, torturing asylum seekers, indigenous people, the mentally ill in concentration camps, plus other stuff).

It is due to the fact that their policies are so deeply odious, that the only people who will deal with them are the far right, openly racist One Nation party.

Note that the government could refuse to deal with these neanderthals, but no one expects them to do so; we know they have no scruples.

It is not the fault of our electoral system, or of third parties, that this dreadful woman has a lot of power in the current system. It is rooted in the fact that our government is itself so horrible in terms of values and policy.

Jet black Seinfeld spec script ... set right after 9/11. It is exactly as appalling as you think it would be. The characters remain exactly as horrific and selfish as the were in the real show.

Tick the truth. In the census (for those of you not abstaining) don't tick your birth religion if you no longer practice it. Select "no religion".

MIT researchers with DARPA funding have developed a portable device for manufacturing a range of biopharmaceuticals on demand, virtually anywhere.

For medics on the battlefield and doctors in remote or developing parts of the world, getting rapid access to the drugs needed to treat patients can be challenging. That’s because biopharmaceutical drugs, which are used in a wide range of therapies including vaccines and treatments for diabetes and cancer, are currently produced in large, centralized fermentation plants. Then they must be transported to the treatment site, which can be expensive, time-consuming, and difficult to execute in areas with poor supply chains.

Who's good at Corewars?

DARPA's inaugural Cyber Grand Challenge, where seven autonomous computers battle one another in what the agency claims is the “world’s first all-machine hacking tournament.”

DARPA announced the competition a couple of years ago, challenging computer programmers to create machines that could find and fix flaws in their software without human intervention. At a live event Thursday evening in Las Vegas at the annual Def Con hacker conference, seven Cyber Grand Challenge finalists are preprogramming their computers to play a digital version of “capture the flag.” The key to victory and the $2 million prize is to successfully defend one’s digital “flags”—bits of data written into programs running on the computers—from other teams’ cyber attacks while at the same time attacking competitors’ computers to find their flags.___Who's good at Corewars?
