Bloglines - Error'd: Predictive, Recursive Error

Bloglines user PeterDawson (slash.pd@gmail.com) has sent this item to you, with the following personal message:

another CLASSIC WTF !!


Worse Than Failure
Curious Perversions in Information Technology

Error'd: Predictive, Recursive Error

By Jake Vinson on Error'd

Dave T. sent in this message that I've been trying to figure out. As I understand it, FontLab's import failed because it couldn't find the reason the import failed... but it wouldn't have a reason to fail to begin with. It's as though it predicted a failure that didn't actually happen, which caused an error. I swear, this'll lead me to trepan myself like the guy in that movie Pi.

Bloglines - If You're So Dumb, Why Aren't You Rich?

Bloglines user PeterDawson (slash.pd@gmail.com) has sent this item to you, with the following personal message:

nice matrix of wealth.


Paul Kedrosky's Infectious Greed
Musing about technology, finance, venture capital, & the money culture with Paul Kedrosky

If You're So Dumb, Why Aren't You Rich?

By pk

Crazy-fun new study in press at the journal Intelligence. It attempts to puzzle out the connection between IQ and wealth, only to come up with the entertaining -- if unsurprising --  result: There isn't one. Bad news for brainy geeks everywhere.

the non-relationship between financial worth and iq

While it doesn't stand up to statistical scrutiny, an eyeball check of the above figure does make it look like there is a soft inverse relationship. In other words, maybe we should be accusing random foolish sorts among us of being smarter than they're acting: Hey, if you're so dumb, how come you're not rich?!

a government's legitimacy,

"Because I simply said that if human rights violation is the basis for rejecting a government's legitimacy, the US would also lose legitimacy over Patriot Act, Guantanamo Bay, Invasion of Iraq and Abu Ghuraib."

nigger brown sofa ?

This is quite the story..

"Doris Moore was shocked when her new couch was delivered to her Toronto home with a label that used a racial slur to describe the dark brown shade of the upholstery.

The situation was even more alarming for Moore because it was her 7-year-old daughter who pointed out "nigger brown" on the tag."

A Typical Lost in Translation story :)_

Twitter did exactly the right thing

In the big picture, Twitter did exactly the right thing. They had a good idea and they buckled down and focused on delivering something as cool as possible as fast as possible, and it's really hard, in early 2007, to beat Rails for that. When all of a sudden there were a few tens of thousands of people using it, then they went to work on the scaling.
