Nothing crazy, for me and kids, we're all intermediate players.

Ok, so the ping pong table world has apparently SEO'ed the hell out of Google, meaning it's impossible to tell what's good and what's bad. I want to get a ping pong table that will live on our garage. Any recommendations?

A gifted computer scientist and teacher. 6.034 lectures in 36-100 at 10am, because he believed that was the best time to learn (not too early, not too close to lunch.)

It is high time that iOS and Android provide dramatically more control over app permissions. Let me lie about my location. Let me provide a pared down photo library and set of contacts to an app. Do it by default. The platforms are not doing nearly enough.

50 years ago today, Neil Armstrong, Mike Collins and I launched into space on a mission of enormous importance. God bless the 400,000 Americans who helped us get to the moon and back. Together, we Americans can do anything! Never forget July 16, 1969!

It depends a *ton* on how much work goes into the voting software UI itself. How often you have to do Linux stuff vs. voting app stuff. If you have to get down to Linux knowledge ... That would take a good bit of work to re-train folks.

But vendors install the software initially on machines, right? Scanners etc.

Because if you say "no commodity" to lawmakers, that could easily turn into a broad ban of any flavor of Windows, Linux, etc. Which seems deeply wrong to me.

I suspect updates should either be nearly automated or performed by the vendor.
