One of the key purposes and limitations of blogs is getting the material out there for reading.

Problem with a blog is that you can only include a certain amount each day in a packaged, notated form, otherwise people get swamped. At my blog, there are 6 or 7 posts a day and I’m not even starting to cover it all, with the amount which is being fed to me.

This is no good for data junkies who need a constant stream coming through and so, occasionally, it needs a post where a lot of urls are included with brief commentary and this is one of those.

Read at will.

Hi All,

This is interesting! Is this a thin end of a wedge to control us or against the Government?

Chuckles again:

# Once upon a time, Amazon was a dot-com-era technology company best known for selling books. Then, in 2003 and 2004, Amazon wanted to streamline its internal process between the programmers and the hardware engineers. It was a move that many other companies were taking, but an Amazon engineer had a brilliant idea: Why not use the same project to design an application that could rent chunks of Amazon’s computing facilities to customers?

    You are correct on this: “# It seems to be an absolute tenet and article of faith amongst the faithful that scientific differences or disagreements can be settled by debate and rhetoric. if you ‘win’ the debate, then the ‘correct’ science follows.”

    That isn’t how science is done, nor how policies should be made. But our fearless leaders don’t understand science, and confuse it with magic.
