Someone reverse engineered

Someone reverse engineered the Win-XP activation mechanism. It's not as bad as many people thought. It's certainly no cause for paranoia.

The passing of a giant.

The passing of a giant. Claude Shannon has died. He was a man of towering intellect, whose achievements are dwarfed only by the ignorance of the public to the value of those achievements. All our lives have been radically changed by him, but I bet not one person in a hundred has even heard of him.

NSA has lost the techno war. It says.

NSA has lost the techno war. It says. But do we believe them? Or is this merely intended to lull us into complacency?

Bill Joy thinks the world will end

Bill Joy thinks the world will end unless we stop doing certain kinds of research right now. I think Bill Joy is full of crap, but he has valid points. (More inside)

If computer engineering defined the last half of the twentieth century, then biotech will surely define the first half of the twenty-first century.

Maybe I spoke too soon.

Maybe I spoke too soon. A lot of semipro tech-zines, sort of like blogs except with specific subject matters to cover, are financed by ad networks. In the recent past a bunch of them have lost their funding when their ad networks went out of business. Now one of the biggest networks which remains is changing their terms to the detriment of the web sites. I gather that a lot of the ad networks were running at a loss, and of course new funding has dried up. [more inside]

The end of Edison's greatest invention.

The end of Edison's greatest invention. All good things must come to an end, I suppose. This one lasted longer than most of the 19th century's great inventions -- like the steam locomotive.

Lynn Conway

Lynn Conway is one of the major talents in the history of the development of computers, responsible for major advances without which computers we buy now would be much different. She's also a transsexual, born physically male. While working for IBM she had her sex-change operation, and IBM immediately fired her for it.

The six million pound man?

The six million pound man? Is he visionary or just stupid? More important, is this really something we want, even if he can make it work?

Every time you make something foolproof

Every time you make something foolproof they invent a better fool. Just how the hell did he manage to crack that thing like that, anyway?

The US Government should buy it and make it a national monument.

The US Government should buy it and make it a national monument. PARC up for sale? I didn't realize that Xerox was hurting so badly.

Intel has a terrible quarter.

Intel has a terrible quarter. Is the PC industry in the toilet, or is it just Intel executing badly?

It's just Intel executing badly. (Reports of the demise of the PC industry are greatly exaggerated.) AMD has another great quarter and appears to be stealing Intel market share.

When did Claudia Schiffer become an expert in computers?

When did Claudia Schiffer become an expert in computers? And why would I care what she thinks should be installed on one? (Light and casual: jokes. That's the way, now.)

Now here's a doozy of an ethical dilemma.

Now here's a doozy of an ethical dilemma. Sometimes technology creates ethical problems, or un-solves ones we had previously solved. I'd be interested in how people answer the question posed in the title. Hmm?

What's old is new again.

What's old is new again. This sounds suspiciously like "core", which is what computers used when I was in college.
