    Heck, I’d use a label-less Dvorak layout keyboard just for kicks.

      I wonder which keyboard layout they use in Croatia? Maybe QWERTY or AZERTY would confuse them just as much as Dvorak…

      Doesn’t have to be label-less. The Qwerty letters on a keyboard set to run in Dvorak mode add an extra level of confusion. Lots of people are initially convinced my computer is broken … Until I explain what’s going on.

    I imagine a world without dictators. Maybe technology can help us accomplish this before the infinitely-intelligent machines enslave us.

    In the US we expose fraud and corruption and it doesn’t do anything. 

    OpenSecrets shows you that the backers of SOPA and PIPA were given huge amounts of money by the film/tv industry.    Do they care?  No.

    The accounting investigation of the Iraq war showed that companies were literally raiding the government coffers, stealing from us.  Was anything done?  No.

    The Fed giveaway (and handing companies ultra-low-interest money to invest as their own is a giveaway) is like theft out of every one of our pockets.  Who is being punished?

    I swear – I felt like in the last fifteen years, they have given up even acting like they aren’t just robbing us blind.   The Savings and Loan scandal of the Reagan years seems so quaint.   Nowadays, no one even bothers with the “Scandal” part, and the thefts are for trillions instead of billions.
