RT @franksting: @SnarkyPlatypus @leslienassar @stilgherrian a Scoble of Glassholes [Oh I want to kiss you now.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @leslienassar There’s a deep, deep irony in Valleywag calling out someone for self-promotion.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@visibleprocrast Or, more politely, who can say? The article does not address this, as I’m sure you read.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to visibleprocrast

Nice to see that we already have a word for people using Google Glass: “Glassholes”. memex.naughtons.org/archives/2013/…

The glorious irony? The game is called “Game Dev Tycoon”, simulating running a gaming company in the face of piracy.

via Janetter for Mac

In it, a game dev releases a cracked version of their own USD 7.99 game. After 24 hours, 93.6% of players are using the stolen game.

“It’s as if all those humans, with all the complexities of their lives, still behave in aggregate a bit like molecules.”

“I’m struck by their similarity to plots for physical processes like chemical reactions…”

via Janetter for Mac

No tl;dr version, @derekbradley, it’s a LOT of different angles and the analyst is Stephen Wolfram. Worth putting on a pot of tea for.

@petstarr @melburnian @774melbourne Interesting article, tho it seems that privacy concerns are the biggie. I’ll post the audio later.

@KatieWeiss_ @Raf774 So what have you got against the Stork Market, exactly?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KatieWeiss_

KatieWeiss_ @stilgherrian @Raf774 read that as “oil dear” instead of “oh dear” then noticed you wrote “the stork market” later in the sentence. he

The fact that there’s even a journal called “CyberPsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking” amuses me no end.

via Janetter for Mac

On a completely unrelated note, this academic paper looks quite interesting. doi:10.1089/cyber.2012.0323

via Janetter for Mac

RT @damonism: Tweet the DOI of the paper and about a hundred people with access will probably send you a copy. [That’s true.]

via Janetter for Mac

@joneaves Oh I knew what drive Aaron Swartz, but this publisher’s only options are full archive access, not single papers.
