The usual suspects have just launched, which is the "search using google" hack that stef had always threatened to build but never got round to.

So it was done before lunch, as his christmas prezzie.

Parliamentary Farce

Lest anyone doubt that the way the Government rammed through the Hunting Bill using the Parliament Act was anything other than farce, I give you this little excerpt from Michael Martin, the Speaker of the House of Commons.

I have to inform the House that a message has been brought from the Lords as follows:

"The Lords insist on their amendments to the Hunting Bill, to which the Commons have insisted on their disagreement, for which insistence they assign their reasons. They insist on their amendments to which the Commons have disagreed, for which insistence they assign their reasons, and they disagree to the amendment proposed by the Commons in lieu of the Lords amendments, for which disagreement they assign their reasons."

That gets a whopping 24 on the Fog readability index, thus proving that this blog is typically nearly twice as readable as Hansard...

Distributed Brain Cycles

Far too many people fail to appreciate the true worth of The Yoz Shaped Wonder.

Every once in a while, Yoz spots something very, very interesting that the rest of us pragmaticofascits miss.

This time it's the potential to harness distributed human brainpower. Spare distributed brain cycle capacity is possibly even more intresting as its computer equivalent.

The potential is awesome. My brain is thinking distributed media tagging, along the lines of distributed ultra-low impact version of ESP.

Lee Bryant has more.

Yoz, I kiss your beautiful brain.
