- Opinion target: entities and their aspects (features) – a fingerprint with a query
- Sentiment: positive or negative
- Direct/indirect opinion holder: persons (source with agenda) who hold the opinions
- Time: when opinions are expressed
Now what if I told you, your devices can do real time analysis of your opinions. What if the system was able to monitor global opinion and has the means to come up with events to change the required opinions . Whose side is your device on?
Whenever you need to make a decision, you will need to consult the perception of reality of yourself and other people.
Opinion collection is no longer limited by your circle of friends. It is global.

[...] It’s about controlling any damning information from reaching epidemic proportions. It’s damage control to the extreme. It’s about the upcoming censorship of the internet in the name of national security. The plans are already in place.
“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.” – Ayn Rand
[...] But that’s the funny thing about how data is used by our current government. It’s used to createsuspicion, not to confirm innocence.
[...] he Navy has almost finished outfitting the nuclear-powered submarine USS Jimmy Carter with state-of-the-art technology for undersea fiber-optic taps, according to people knowledgeable about it.
[...] The free market is compromised, privacy is gone, the money is gone
[...] Yet no one is saying their own comments are gone, which means everyone who is posting can see their own comments in full, and are probably wondering why they are not getting any response from other people on the forum.This is accomplished by having the forum replicated many many times on a supercomputer somewhere, with a separate reality for everyone posting to it.
Would you be surprised, if Mr. Eric was one of the morphed virtual persons produced by the holonet, as documented 911 victims, yet this time still alive? The ultimate turing test? What if this virtual person was powered by a powerful AI to enable two way video conference? When holonet skynet is known widely, noone can trust the anonymous internet as history will be rewritten and your memories replaced.

A subsidiary or shell company used to shield another company from liability or scrutiny. A front company can be used to protect a parent corporation or brand from negative publicity in the event of a mishap, and may also be used to conceal illegal activities.
Facebook was indirectly funded by the CIA with the goal of learning and storing everything there is to know about you. Why? To monitor and ultimately control.
Up to now, the CIA has been organizing color revolutions using Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and so forth as vehicles. … This is an operation which must be exposed.
[...] I see a future where you own your devices. And those devices work for you. They do not share any information with others.
[...] The question I have is: why the F**K should I share my network of contacts with these commercial entities.
[...] They’ve burned too many bridges at this point, to such a degree that at this point, I assume that if Google was behind it, it’s only a matter of time before they drop support.
[...] What is intuition? The body is always scanning for future events!

… There was an exchange program in place to “keep the movies fresh”, so old film reels were returned to America, along with the disguised rolls, where they were then loaded onto GIANT magnetic tape recorders and played back. The bandwidth was up to 3 mhz per channel, up to 256 channels, which allowed one tape to store every signal of significance originating within a nation for the length of time the tape ran.
.. Total data storage on one of these tapes was equal to many petabytes.
… NSA does not like signals stored digitally, because they look for such small subtleties in the signal for source identification, and nyquist noise is a major hindrance.

[...] REAL WORLD OR EXERCISE? FACT OR FICTION?
How long does it take for you to realize the email sent by a family member to you was faked? At what point will you be unable to differentiate history, real world events from media, movies and staged fake flag events? What if history was to be rewritten in real time? Time is running up. HOLONET
… The reality is that most people don’t have the patience, time,resources or inclination to find out what is really going on out there.
… The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.
Willing Suspension of Disbelief
You can ask an audience to believe the impossible, but not the improbable.
Suspension of disbelief can be broken even in science fiction when a show breaks its own established laws or places said laws outside of fiction.
[...] You see suspending your disbelief is a stress on the mind, you’re asking your brain to ignore what it knows to be true. You’re saying “Hey brain, you know how people can’t fly? Well screw you, this guy can.” And your brain grumbles a bit but then does as you ask and accepts the fact that people can now fly. And then you say “Hey grey matter, vampires exist.” More grumbling, but Mr Brain plays the game. And then in the last chapter of the book when the protagonist is struggling to disarm a bomb, his faithful dog sidles up to him and says “Oi, Jeff, just cut the bloody blue wire already.”
“No,” replies Brian the Brain, “just no! Flying, yes. Vampires, yes. But dogs do not just randomly start talking because it’s bloody convenient.

… a precise shot of paralytic to the top of the spinal cord, followed by a photorealistic rendering (through the goggles) of the goggles being removed… to reveal the severed-head’s view of the “real world” simulation room. Dim lights to black; leave them there to contemplate.
… They’re not laughing because anything is particularly funny. It’s the sort of laughter that is created by an inappropriate joke or a stressful situation that is avoided.
This speaks to the quality and efficacy of the simulation – it elevates stress enough that it causes participants to need to ‘laugh it off’.
… Would a “little” damage to the limbic system, for instance, make it difficult for people to remember things that happened in the past?
Would constant reminders be helpful in shaping memory, allowing some events to remain important while others faded away? Would this help keep people easy to control?
Well we have news. Science is already censored. Lots of secret science is conducted, and has been conducted. Secret science and technology has been kept hidden to create a huge technology gap, and this huge technology gap allows evil people to play God with you and your loved ones.

If the programmed subject is told to walk into an armed camp and assassinate an enemy leader, the subject will carry out his program with no regard to his personal welfare, whether he lives or dies, or how he is supposed to escape.
… Even under the ‘truth serum” drugs, the subject cannot reveal the truth because his conscious mind has no access to it.

Google has released documentation to the Mirror APIs, the API to program against Google Glass.
The second guide was slightly more technical, so when he returned a little later I asked him about the Debug Mode option. The reaction was interesting: he kind of looked at me, somewhat confused, and asked “wait, what version of the software does it report in Settings”? When I told him “XE4″ he clarified “XE4, not XE3″, which I verified. He had thought this feature had been removed from the production units.
… the Debug Mode option is the equivalent of the typical Android “Enable USB Debugging” option: it allows you to connect to the device over USB via adb.
… It knows all your passwords, for example, as it can watch you type them. It even manages to monitor your usage of otherwise safe, old-fashioned technology: it watches you enter door codes, it takes pictures of your keys, and it records what you write using a pen and paper. Nothing is safe once your Glass has been hacked.

WARNING: Total media blackout
From your 2,916 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 6,392 items, clicked 423 items, starred 0 items, and emailed 41 items.
Since December 25, 2010 you have read a total of 300,000+ items.
- It is bad enough that the links stop working, images disappear and the videos at YouTube get pulled.
- It is bad enough that blogs stop publishing valuable content or change their address.
- It is hard enough to get someone blogging.
- It is hard enough to get someone to read blogs.
I used to aske people I met did they have a blog. Now, without google reader, I am not sure how to follow them…
Google Reader is optimized to help you sift through many news items quickly. … and that’s something these newspaper-like apps cannot accomplish.
I feel there is a need for a new service. A personal internet service. A service which will keep tabs on all the content for you. Works on your devices. Can not be discontinued. And keeps a copy of everything. Like a personal internet archive. And integrates with Google Glass, of course.
By phone I meant it will serve as a personal internet cache, your agent, always with you wherever you travel. You can connect to it from any laptop and it will synchronize feeds for you.

Since some web applications already allow one to map network drives via WebDAV then how long, until one can actually connect to a virtual web application via Remote Desktop Client RemoteApp? What if that virtual web application would be hosted by your android device or your chrome web application?
What if the application was running on EC2 yet as a RemoteApp?

The primary purpose of a web browser is to bring information resources to the user (“retrieval” or “fetching”), allow them to view the information (“display”, “rendering”), and then access other information (“navigation”, “following links”).
I like the way StatCounter is using the client only URL hash to query the web service. In chrome I like best the way it enables to synchronize bookmarks between all devices.

New business will be won only to the extent that the client believes that
the professional is interested, cares, and is trying to help.
—DAVID H. MAISTER1
The project proposal is a tool — not a goal. It should be followed as closely as possible, and deviations should occur only when necessary.
A Request for Proposal (RFP) is a formal statement of requirements and technical specifications that constitute a company’s needs for the evaluation, recommendation and bid proposal of systems, services or products from vendors.
[...] If you have the tools you still need wood to build anything.
[...] A hammer does not build a house for a carpenter.
In order to ask for comments provide a section by section overview to indicate where you are most uncertain.
- The proposal as a cohesive document
- The proposal as a persuasive document
[...] Persuasion – A successful intentional effort at influencing another’s mental state through communication in a circumstance in which the reader has some measure of freedom. – Daniel J. Okeefe
All proposals share in common the following basic parts:
- The metaphor of a body
- The idea of narration
- The idea of persuasion, we really are arguing for our idea
- The idea of audience
- Have the aims of persuasion been identified and addressed?
- Is the central persuasive statement controlled?
- Have logical fallacies been avoided?
- Have the audience’s knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes been considered?
- Has a formal persuasive system been followed?
[...] Anything only has a value depending on what we compare it to – Rory Sutherland
[...] The first rule of Persuasion Design is that every design is persuasive in some ways. There is no neutral way of designing something. – Arjan Haring 2010
- In your sales video, talk about the value you will be providing
- Send customers to buy
- Invite them – “See you on the other side”

Note to self: Have external drives sync up on each other bi-weekly.
Today I found out that my 1TB external hard drive has stopped working. Only the bright white LED was still shining. The operating system itself was unable to detect the drive via the USB connection.
You do have a backup, right?
Well, no. It was the backup. I had a collection of documents I wanted to read later. Most of them were related to my Ph.D studies and downloaded from the internet. The source code on the disk was either disposable or synced to a repository like svn or git. And then there was media like movies and images.
Should an external hard drive be considered as a temporary means to transport data?

Gavin you are doing good work. Arm your vehicle with dashcams rear front and sideways including microphone. The way I see it there needs to be a system for immediate automatic constitution violation detection, which would automatically allow to sue the agent and take class action at any such encounter.
Consider this. You stop your car and your car loudspeaker will identify itself to the agent, allow the agent to identify himself. Read the agent his rights and wait for further actions. As soon there is a violation the agent will be notified by the car, fined and sued. All done by the robotic voice overlay. Robocop comes to mind.
Lets keep the good fight.
Guys, I just logged into a car, remotely. I drove it for 1 minute and 30 seconds. I used my keyboard to do that. The car was on the other side of the earth. Think of the implications.
When can I log into my car? I want to drive it remotely, too. We know that cars with all their electronics will be fully capable in doing that in near future.
This is me, logged in as alias Kevin Sutherland, driving around on my Dell Latitude XT with an Outlander!
We already knew there were drones patrolling around desert Nevada . Exactly how long will it take to have remote controlled taxi service or public transport in general? We know that some trains already rely on automation.

Alexandre Mutel has been busy generating a .NET wrapper for DirectX 11. From what I could gather he is reading .h files in and writing .cs files out.
Note that his post seems to be unavailable.
New OpCodes used by his tool:
For future reference to gather some of my thoughts:
Could one at one point program a java application in C# which runs on JVM and uses DirectX via jni? Technically it is possible yes although while jsc uses a version of jni which seems to be bound to the CDecl calling convention.
The names of the exported native functions can be read as described on stackoverflow. For parameters a .h file is required.
see also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interix
__cdecl: caller pushes and pops args off stack, args passed right to left.
Older, unmanaged code that was developed by using the standard C libraries can implement functions that take variable numbers of parameters by using a technique that is known as varargs. Only the code that calls these functions knows for certain what it has placed on the stack, so it is the responsibility of the calling code to clean up the stack when the function completes. This is referred to as the Cdecl calling convention. It is the mechanism that unmanaged code that runs on Windows Embedded CE uses (you can use this as a point to select between Cdecl and StdCall nn your code).

CLI (Command Line Interface) = (Think textual, such as the command prompt or DOS)
GUI (Graphical User Interface) = (The Windows UI)
NUI (Natural User Interface) = (Think of physical interaction with a GUI)
OUI (Organic User Interface) = (Spend some time researching here)
This 4 player game has some serious potential.
Today I found a DSL project “TouchToolkit“.
name: DoubleTap validate Touch state: TouchUp Touch limit: 1 Touch step: 2 touches within 1 sec Touch area: Rect 50x50 including last 1 touch within 1 sec return Touch points
The question is do we really want to express touch gestures from a text file. What if we would want to record touch simulation and give it a name.
In the following image we have a file “Default.g” which is the container for recorded gestures.
With JSC the developer would be able to apply this recorded gesture on all platforms supported by jsc. More details on that soon enough.
If you are looking for multitouch hardware see this list.

How will we define the gestures for our multitouch devices in the near future?
Here are some icons to describe various states of the touch points:
