The media conglomerates failed to pass SOPA, now they are getting in bed with Youtube at the public's expense. I'd point you to Google alternatives like DuckDuckGo (which respects your privacy a lot more to boot), or heck, bing but since everyone google, that's unlikely to go far in practice. While Google already started down this path of censorship with autocorrect before, search ranking based on mere DMCA notices is a line that should not be crossed.

Overwhelmed? Welcome the Age of Curation | Wired Business | Wired.com | Philosophical Cognitive Computing | Scoop.it

Forrester Research analyst Sarah Rotman Epps coined a phrase Friday for something many have been talking about since Apple launched the iPad about six weeks ago. “Curated computing” refers to the way Apple staff examines each piece of software written for iPhone OS devices before allowing it into (or blocking it from) the App Store.

Christians Who Are Against LGBT Misuse The Bible | Philosophical Cognitive Computing | Scoop.it

The Bible is a complicated book. Using the Bible to condemn sexual minorities requires that people make a series of choices and assumptions. Whatever proof texts one side or the other cooks up, the Bible simply doesn't work as a rule book.

Steve Yegge - Google+ - Notes from the Mystery Machine Bus I've spent the past… | Philosophical Cognitive Computing | Scoop.it

I've spent the past eight years (starting back in June 2004) writing elaborate rants about a bunch of vaguely related software engineering issues.

I was doing all that ranting because I've been genuinely perplexed by a set of "bizarre" world-views held dear by -- as far as I can tell -- about half of all programmers I encounter, whether online or in person.

Last week, after nearly a decade of hurling myself against this problem, I've finally figured it out. I know exactly what's been bothering me.

Plenty of dark matter near the Sun

Plenty of dark matter near the Sun | Philosophical Cognitive Computing | Scoop.it

ScienceDaily (Aug. 9, 2012) — Astronomers at the University of Zürich and the ETH Zürich, together with other international researchers, have found large amounts of invisible "dark matter" near the Sun. Their results are consistent with the theory that the Milky Way Galaxy is surrounded by a massive "halo" of dark matter, but this is the first study of its kind to use a method rigorously tested against mock data from high quality simulations. The authors also find tantalizing hints of a new dark matter component in our Galaxy.
