The Coen brothers' next film is a remake of True Grit. It's just a teaser, but based on the teaser this is going to be my new favorite film.
"It is not my opinion that the present organizational structure of science inhibits 'complexity research' - I do not believe such an institution is necessary." .... "You don’t understand 'ordinary people.' To you they are 'stupid fools' - so you will not tolerate them or treat their foibles with tolerance or patience - but will drive yourself wild (or they will drive you wild) trying to deal with them in an effective way."From Feynman's letter to Wolfram.
We believe that privacy and connectedness do not have to be mutually exclusive. With Diaspora, we are reclaiming our data, securing our social connections, and making it easy to share on your own terms. We think we can replace today's centralized social web with a more secure and convenient decentralized network. Diaspora will be easy to use, and it will be centered on you instead of a faceless hub.I mean, it could work, maybe, but how do you manage security? How do you determine which users can have what data? How do you calculate social graphs and discover new users? These are hard problems, and I'm not sure there are open source solutions to them.
