Amen. Tags are fun, especially when we try to be creative in selecting them. Unfortunately, it makes it rather hard to find content. Forcing people to select only one tag for a post would usually result in a) people not tagging a post at all or b) people selecting a very general tag as to be worthless or c) people using a 'creative' tag resulting in a tag "ghetto" ( forgot who first used that word)
I love my Kindle but I find the screen to be too small. It'd be nice if it were 8" instead of 6". I mostly read pdf s now ( papers for my thesis ) and I do not enjoy reading them in landscape mode.
The Theory That Would Not Die. Reading loads of technical books, too. PostGIS in Action and Spatial Databases: A Tour. And a smattering of web development books.
Great find :D Now if only I could find the time...
The reliance on PolitiFact's APIs provides a single point of failure. Then something like a collaborative fact checking platform would be nice. Something like Wikipedia but for fact checking.
Oops. Drat. My bad. I thought hubskis redundancy filters would block it. Turns out it had a different URL.
Think of the possibilities: zoom, playback, infrared vision, x-ray and all those superpowers XD
OT: Man, have I been away that long? Since when did hubski have user tagging?
Screw touchscreens, I want a retinal implant XD
Though it'd be nice if the Cotton Candy is a 3G modem too. That way you won't be too dependent on the host device's networking hardware.
You might want to check out the Raspberry Pi, too. Granted, it is a bit bigger but at $25 a pop, it's a steal :D
A shame I can't vote. It's rather frustrating how the decisions of American lawmakers could affect the whole internet. We really should start treating the internet like an ocean. As a shared resource. What happens in one country could have ripples that affect the rest of the world.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm currently earning my masters degree in geomatics engineering. I wanted a CS degree after but after reading your post, I think I'd get a math degree instead :)
I don't see any mention of Microsoft in that post.
