IBM about to layoff 100,000 US employees? This is big news, and is currently being soft pedaled by the powers that be. I guess the recent stock market run has emboldened the IBM management to cash out while the getting is good. Great show of backbone there, while the run up is going on. Shows real leadership, nice work guys.
Glad to see Bill back on PBS. Tonights show was all about pre-war press coverage. Everyone was on a mission to prevent them as being seen as un-patriotic. The winds politically were blowing that way in Washington D.C. and every beltway media outfit fell in line. As Bill Moyers points out the columnists, all of whom appear on television as experts on world affairs and the mid East, continue to prosper. Charles Krauthammer, William Safire, Bill Krystol, Bush’s lead speech writer all continue to prosper. The Washington Post actually hired the dude that penned the line, “…the smoking gun that may come in the form of a mushroom cloud”. Where is our so-called ‘liberal’ media now? It really is true, as Bill Moyers says in tonights broadcast, “Being a pro-war pundit means never having to say you’re sorry”. Those guys can all rot for the sins they committed, helping the Bush administration get America to agree to the war in Iraq.
Robot warriors should be allowed to mix it up among themselves freely, autonomously deciding to blast enemy weapon systems. Many enemy “systems” would, of course, be themselves robots, so it’s clear that machine-on-machine violence isn’t a problem. The difficulty comes when the automatic battlers need to target humans…
I don’t know how anyone who cannot fix a Macintosh computer could ever hope to fix a problem on a Windows PeeCee. The dipper into many domains is the master of none. I’ve mastered no domains, but I have learned a few tricks. That’s why people think I’m smart. I’m not smart, just lucky. And throw in the few tricks too.
