    Oh Hai

    Hey man! What's shakin'?
  2. I totally have not gotten a copy of these plans and am modifying them for my own subtle purposes. Now please, have a soda.
  3. -Ideas for a Better World- Exactly what it says on the tin. I'd like to hear your ideas for how we could make this planet a more decent place to live. This includes everything except politics; new infrastructure, new technology, new planning, new ways of doing things. Tell us how we can make a tomorrow that we, as a SPECIES, can be proud of. As I'm sure many of you do as well, I've been meditating on how our history sucks so hard. Sure, we have had a few great things here and there, but look back! Look at ALL the incredible missed opportunities and tragedies that we have faced. For as long as we have been on this planet, Humans have dreamed of good things yet to come. We have tried to build the future so many times, but what has happened? What happens that topples those dreams, that blunts their cutting edge to the point of irrelevance? And why do we marginalize so many good ideas that come to fruition, or outright forget them? This is not a question of the WAY these things happen, history can show us the how and the why. But why do we allow such things to continue? We are a brilliant, creative, compassionate species, and our potential is literally beyond measure. We need not be bound by apathy, or greed, or the status quo. We are the only intelligent life that we know of, and that certainly gives us a responsibility to be all that we can possibly be. I remember the millennium. I watched as Humanity, across the globe, came together for an instant and said "This is it, this is the beginning of a NEW ERA, we will stand united and go boldly into it!" But what we got was more of the same, and worse. We live in an era that is slowly, SLOWLY beginning to realize its potential, but I do believe it will get worse before it gets better. Unless we do something drastic about it. You who are reading this are the only ones who can make this happen. You are going to build the future; whether you like it or not, and indeed, whether you KNOW it or not, the responsibility is yours. Age does not matter. Generation does not matter. Political viewpoint does not matter. Social and/or financial status does not matter. The only things that matter are your willingness to listen, and to contribute your ideas. You shape the future merely by existing. But if you choose, you guide it even further. We all want to be part of something. We want to have done something important in our lives, something to which we can say "YES! I was there! I did that! I helped build the future!" Do that thing. Make that contribution. There has never been a better time than right now. So please, tell us! What ideas do you have to make the future a better place for us to live in? Nothing can happen if it is not first proposed. Also, if you can, replicate this thread on other forums!
  4. It was all over NPR today... Also, something else you should see.
  5. I just had the urge to paraphrase Winston Churchill. However, I think this is pretty relevant. When corporate America pushed through the DMCA, long ago, I'd like to think they were told by someone, "there are bitter weeds on the internet." Certainly there have been a great many more of them, since SOPA and PIPA were proposed. So I have in myself full confidence that if all do their duty, and nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our freedom of speech and expression, to ride out the storm of corporate oppression, and to outlive the menace of intellectual tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary, alone. At any rate that is what we are going to try to do. That is the will of us all, every one of us. That is the resolve of free people of all political viewpoints. The denizens of the internet, linked together in our cause and in our need, will defend to the death our creative freedom, aiding each-other as comrades to the utmost of our strength. We will go on to the end. We shall fight in the House, we shall fight in the Senate, we shall fight in the polls and on the phone lines, we shall fight, with growing confidence and growing strength on the front page! We shall defend our internet, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the petitions, we shall fight on the streets to spread the word, we shall fight on the forums, and in the instant messengers. We shall fight in the blog posts. We shall NEVER surrender; and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this internet, or a large part of it, was subjugated under the boot-heel of one or both of these bills, or their descendants, then I believe our comrades abroad, armed and aided by as many of us as can rally, would carry on the struggle, until in time, the old world, with all its people and creative thought, stepped forth to the rescue and the liberation of the new.
  6. So, Wikipedia is considering going dark in protest of PIPA and SOPA. Reddit has already pledged to do so as well, but the impact a staple like Wikipedia would have would probably be just the thing to get the word out to the general populace about internet censorship. Support the blackout here.
  7. If this goes through, Sunrise is gonna have my ass. The fact is, we ALL have something to lose from this bill, whether we know it or not.
  8. IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY. OH HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Etc. Happy day of life, Zigge! ^^
